Pelican’s Perch, Daufuskie Island Vacation Rental Group

New!! 3 BR Pet Friendly Luxury Cottage w 2 Screened Porches

(See “Special Notes” below the description for additional important information.)

Daufuskie Rental Group is extremely pleased and proud to announce the launch of a truly “WOW” property: The spectacular A Pelican’s Perch Cottage!

Formerly the popular Sandbox Cottage, A Pelican’s Perch Cottage has new owners, has benefitted from a total renovation, and is even better than before!

Some things haven’t changed, such as the much sought-after 3 bedroom configuration, TWO screen porches, a huge back yard providing a breathtaking view of a scenic marsh abundant with wildlife, and a glimpse of the Atlantic Ocean from the front. (This is a second row cottage located just a two minute walk to the Melrose beach.)

And for our cold weather guests, A Pelican’s Perch Cottage continues to be one of the few Melrose beach cottages that has a working fireplace.

The cottage continues to be under the management of Daufuskie’s premier property management company, Daufuskie Rental Group, dedicated to superior guest service both before and during your visit.

Guests should know that the cottage's interior has just been entirely re-painted. It also has all new beautiful flooring, unique light fixtures, and professional decorating touches throughout.

But the real signature space is the huge back screened porch with a comfy seating area, and…most of all!…a lovely swing bed for reading and afternoon naps!

As before, all conveniences are available, including high-speed fiber optics internet and cable, and a smart TV in every room.

In short, A Pelican’s Perch Cottage provides a luxury setting perfect for a family vacation, a reunion of good friends, or a special event.

Cottage guests will find a true island sanctuary located on a low-country coastal island known for its abundant wildlife, pristine beaches, friendly people, and rich cultural history.

**NEW: Free 4-passenger golf cart available for new bookings!!

A Pelican's Perch Cottage is waiting for you!

What People Say

"We were blown away by this property. The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you need to prepare your family meals. We loved the two porches and spent lots of time in the swinging bed. The pictures do not do this place justice. The bathrooms were great and the beds were all comfy. This is our third trip to the island and we plan on staying at the Pelican's Perch again in the future."

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.
