Daufuskie Rental Group is pleased to announce that the Daufuskie Oasis Cottage has just completed a full renovation by its new owners. Wow…wait until you see it! Lovely beach colors, stylish but livable furnishings and decor, and walking distance to the beach. And everything is new and sparkling fresh!
Although this is a second row property, there's a nice view of the ocean from the front. And (talk about the best of both worlds!) a large, partially wooded back yard that is tailor-made for family activities and for observing Daufuskie's wildlife.
And the cottage is SO pretty inside! Lovely colors provide a backdrop for coastal furnishings and artwork. The living/dining/kitchen area offers various seating and dining areas perfectly designed for family and friends get-togethers. The kitchen is fully equipped and perfect for cooking family meals. The comfortable living room area will get lots of use, and especially for those who watch the flatscreen Smart TV.
Thinking about coming in the winter? This is one of the few Melrose cottages with a working gas fireplace.
The two bedrooms (two queen beds in one bedroom; a queen and king in the other) are beautifully decorated and provide a restful respite from the real world. Each has a convenient ensuite bathroom.
A washer and dryer is provided for cottage guests.
And what a location! After just a two minute walk, you can be at the beach. The Equestrian Center offers beach rides, and is a 5 minute golf cart away.
Note: This cottage is a duplex, but is completely separate from the next door unit with total soundproofing and no shared spaces (including the porches) with the next door cottage. Daufuskie Rental Group also manages the next door cottage, the Daufuskie Escape Cottage, and large families may want to consider renting both these units (which are decorated in very similar fashion) for their Daufuskie get-togethers.
The owner accepts well-behaved canine visitors, although a pet fee will apply. In addition, the property manager must approve all pet requests. Your dog must be over one year old, not be aggressive towards people or other pets, be house trained, will not get up on the furniture, and is ok with being left alone when you are away from the cottage (e.g., no incessant barking or destructive behavior). We also ask that you be a responsible pet owner when the dog is outside, that there will be no signs that your pet was in the property when you depart, and that you will be responsible for any damage and/or extra cleaning caused by your dog.
"Within our first 48 hours we saw alligators, armadillo, dolphins and baby turtles going from their nest to the ocean … absolutely amazing experience and island. The house was perfect for us, every afternoon was quiet reading time on the screened in porch enjoying the view, everyone had their own shower and bathroom, and the folks at DRG were extremely accommodating and even checked in to make sure we settled in alright after our first night."
"Our cottage was just as presented, very clean and appealing. Set up w several spices and lots of good quality utensils in the kitchen. The yard and beach area we perfect for walks and sunbathing. My daughter and daughter-in-law and myself thoroughly enjoyed our time together at the cottage and our travels about the island on our golf cart. The arrangements to and from the island were seem less. Captain Dan was wonderful to work with. Communication with the management was timely and efficient."
"DRG are fantastic to work with, always offering prompt, accurate, and courteous response and service. This year we stayed at the Sea Breeze condo and found it perfect for traveling with kids – plenty of space, a pool, and direct beach access."
"The cottage was exactly as described and exceeded our expectations. Most impressive to me was the communication. We received a phone call before we arrived to answer any last minute questions, they contacted us after we entered the cottage to see if we needed anything. There was a minor technical issue in the cottage and their response was immediate. My interaction with DRG was a big part of making this trip good."
"Deborah Smith and staff were so welcoming and accommodating! Upon our arrival at our cottage everything was clean and beautiful! Deborah even supplied us with a high chair and pack n play. She went out of her to make sure we had everything we needed. There is something magical about Daufuskie – the beauty of the island, the carefree bohemian attitudes – all so hard to leave! We loved the beaches, wildlife, the fun out of the way trips to little galleries, the music and laughter and games at Freeport Marina. Daufuskie! What's not to love?? Now our problem is to figure out when we get to go back."
“We are more than pleased with our vacation on Daufuskie! Deborah went above and beyond! She checked on us during a storm and she was in constant communication. We have 3 young kids and she made sure we were all taken care of. She even got groceries for us to make sure we had enough. This house is so quaint and perfect. Has all you need….Thank you for a great trip and we WILL be back!”
"We could not have been happier! Not only was our villa the perfect location for our visit to Daufuskie Island, but the grounds and condo were beautiful! The condo had gorgeous views from the wrap around porch of the ocean and was the perfect place to enjoy dining. The interior was tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished. Just a few short steps away was the beach and pool area. The property manager was amazing and invaluable to us. Every detail of the trip was worked out with her help and dedication to assuring that this was a wonderful vacation. We could not be more pleased with our stay!"
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.)
3) Please note that because the Melrose Resort is in transition, our Melrose guests may notice a certain level of deterioration in the resort-owned buildings but will also see that renovation efforts are now underway. Our vacation cottages are in well-maintained areas and continue to be extremely popular.
4) Restaurant days and hours of operation vary seasonally and by business. We highly encourage all renters contact the business directly for operational times during their stay dates.
