The Daufuskie Escape Cottage is a uniquely designed cottage that had a top-to-bottom renovation by its new owners. Everything is updated and fresh…and the cottage is simply drop-dead beautiful!

The signature feature of the Daufuskie Escape Cottage is the huge wrap-around screened porch with the front porch providing a view of the ocean, a swing bed, and a dining area. You will especially LOVE the swing bed! What could be more relaxing? And more than one guest has decided to sleep overnight out there!

Walk around the porch to the back and find your gas grill…and another porch with a smaller dining room area and a lovely seating area perfect for diving into your beach book.

This cottage really does have it all! Although a second row property, the cottage’s location ensures a very nice view of the ocean from the front, and a big beautiful backyard for family games and for viewing Daufuskie’s wildlife. And don’t forget the hammock for a great place to take that afternoon snooze…

The cottage is also lovely inside! Peaceful beachy colors set the mood for each room, complemented by coastal artwork (including some from our own Ironfish Art Gallery!). The living/dining/kitchen area was designed with relaxation and socialization in mind. The kitchen is fully equipped and perfect for cooking family meals. The cook will enjoy the company of other guests who choose to perch around the L-shape bar encircling the kitchen. The living room’s seating area is comfy and well-suited for either social chats or for watching the flat screen Smart TV. The fireplace works and is perfect for chilly evenings.


The two spacious bedrooms (A king bed in the master bedroom; 2 queen beds in the other) showcase unique artwork, quality bedding, pillows, and brand new mattresses. And of course each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom. We are also pleased that the owner has included a desk in the master bedroom, perfect for those who need to do a little virtual work or study while vacationing on Daufuskie.


A washer and dryer is available in the cottage for our guests.


The location couldn’t be better! The beautiful Melrose beach is a mere two minute walk from your cottage. Ask a DRG team member about island tours, excursions to Savannah, and more.


There is still great availability for the 2022 season, so make your reservation today for the incomparable Daufuskie Escape Cottage.

1) Daufuskie Rental Group makes a good faith effort to describe island amenities, including restaurants and pools. However, please note that we are not responsible for the availability of amenities that we do not operate and that are beyond our control. Please contact the vendors directly for rates, days and hours of operation.  



2) Your rental agreement contract's cancellation policy states that we are not responsible for events that are beyond our control, such as hurricanes. 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.)

Our vacation cottages are in well-maintained areas and continue to be extremely popular.
