Location, location, location! The beautiful and spacious Coastal Cottage provides its lucky renters with a front row view of the Atlantic Ocean that must be seen to be appreciated. Talk about a WOW factor!! Imagine yourself driving on your rented golf cart through a quiet road lined with Live Oaks draped with Spanish moss, pulling up to the back entrance of your vacation home, walking into your bright and spacious living room, and being greeted with a dazzling panorama of the ocean and blue sky just beyond. Trust us...It just doesn't get any better than this! 

Each of the two oversized bedrooms has 2 queen beds with its own private bathroom providing a lovely and serene setting where you will fall asleep listening to the nearby ocean waves.

Your cottage includes a porch on the ocean side, and what a perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee while watching the sun come up over the ocean! You will see glimpses of both South Carolina and Georgia from here, with Hilton Head off to your left, and the Tybee Island lighthouse on your right. And straight ahead....nothing but soaring sea gulls, a beautiful stretch of sandy beach, and of course, the deep blue ocean itself! 

You will find yourself strolling from your cottage to the beach over and over. This pristine and secluded beach is perfect for long walks, jogging, and even bike riding. (No golf carts here, though! This is a nesting area for the endangered Loggerhead Turtles.) 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 sandcastles and hunting for shells and sand dollars after the tide goes out.

We will be happy to help facilitate a cart rental for exploring the island. Bikes are also available for rent. 

Although the Melrose Resort is closed, the beach is within walking distance of your cottage. The equestrian center is back in operation, and beach horseback riding is available. 

The wildlife is abundant and breathtaking. The resort is the home of a Great White Egret rookery, where you will see hundreds of these graceful birds settle in for the night. A nest of American Bald Eagles can be seen now and then, and some lucky visitors can catch site of a Loggerhead Turtle coming ashore to lay hundreds of eggs in the soft sand. 

You will want to spend time exploring the rest of this unique and special island. Accessible only by ferry, Daufuskie's isolation from the hustle and bustle of the mainland provides a one-of-its-kind experience for those looking to truly get away from it all. 

If you're looking for an old-fashioned beach vacation experience, this beautiful cottage will exceed your expectations. This is a very popular cottage with island visitors, so be sure to reserve your time at this lovely vacation home today!

We strongly encourage our guests to purchase travel insurance, and especially recommend "cancel for any reason" policies. (These must be purchased shortly after your reservation is made.)
