Beachcomber Cottage, Daufuskie Island Vacation Rental Group

Wake up to the sound of the ocean! The Beachcomber Cottage is a lovely low-country cottage with a large front porch facing directly onto the ocean and a pristine and secluded beach.

The location of this cottage really couldn’t be better! Located on the ‘Avenue of Oaks’ on Daufuskie Island, the Beachcomber Cottage is within a very short walking distance to the beach, and to the Beach Club Restaurant.

The cottage itself is very unique and somewhat different from the other cottages in the area. Decorated by the owners themselves, it has a charming interior. If you’ve ever dreamed about having your own relaxed but attractive beach house, this cottage is the place for you and your family.

In terms of the interior, an open area great room and dining area includes a comfortable seating area with flatscreen TV (with Direct TV cable service) and a great selection of DVDs. The dining room table looks out to the porch and directly to the ocean. Of course, there’s a fully equipped kitchen that looks onto the great room area, two spacious bedrooms with two queen-sized beds in each room (with a total of 4 beds) their own TVs, and ensuite bathrooms.

Need even more sleeping space? The living room has both a sleeper sofa and sleeper love seat in the living area.

Please note that a well-behaved canine member of the family will be considered, although there is a pet fee. Manager must review pet requests. See the end of this description for our complete pet policy.**

We imagine you will find yourself strolling from your cottage to the beach over and over. This beautiful beach is perfect for long walks, jogging, and even bike riding. Families especially enjoy the relatively calm waters where children can swim and play without fear of a strong undertow. It’s a great beach for building sand castles and hunting for shells and sand dollars after the tide goes out.

Folks also enjoy touring the island by golf cart, by bicycle, and by simply taking nice long walks. Golf cart vendor contacts will be provided for available golf cart rentals for your stay.

The wildlife is abundant and breathtaking. Melrose is the home of a Great White Egret rookery, and at certain times of the year you will see hundreds of these graceful birds settle in for the night. Nests of American Bald Eagles can sometimes be found nearby, and now and then vigilant visitors can actually catch site of a Loggerhead Turtle coming ashore to lay hundreds of eggs in the soft sand.

** PET POLICY:We will accept a well-behaved canine member of the family if approved by the property manager. However, the dog must be over one year old, not be aggressive towards people or other pets, be house trained, does not get up on the furniture, and is ok with being left alone when you are away from the cottage (no incessant barking or destructive behavior). We require that you will be a responsible pet owner when the dog is outside, that your dog is always kept on a leash, is up-to-date on flea and heart worm treatment and…most importantly…that there will be no signs that your pet was in the property when you depart. You must be responsible for any damage and/or extra cleaning caused by your dog. There is a nonrefundable pet fee of $125 for one dog; $175 for two dogs.

What People Say

“My friends and I were so lucky to get this property!!! The home is spotless, beautiful and the ocean is right out the back door. If we weren’t on the beach we were on the back porch. The beach is perfect! No crowds, no stress! The low tide would be amazing for children to run and play. We explored the island some but it was hard to tear ourselves away from the property. If you get the chance – GO! We will definitely go back!!!”
