IMPORTANT NOTES - PLEASE READ!!
You will have to take a 30 - 45-minute boat ride to get to Daufuskie, which is a bridge-less island located between Hilton Head SC and Savannah, GA. Daufuskie Rental Group can help guide you on booking your passenger only ferry, ground transportation, and golf cart rental for your stay!
Sandy Lane Villas
The Sandy Lane Villas are perched at the edge of the historic Bloody Point beach. (This was the site of ferocious battles between Native Americans and British soldiers in the early 1700's.) The wonderful quiet and secluded beach is just steps away from your villa via a picturesque boardwalk over the beach dunes.
The large sunny pool between the complex and the beach dunes provides a fun destination for the whole family. * Along with spacious decking and ample lounge chairs. Feel free to use the gas grills on property to create an amazing dinner! The beautiful architecture of Sandy Lane is in evidence with its many columns, arches, pillars and balustrades. The grounds have been professionally landscaped with palms and flowering plantings. This beautiful hideaway is flanked by pines, oaks and palms.
A Salty Turtle Villa is located on one of the best-kept secrets on the eastern coast: Daufuskie Island. Your villa overlooks 3 miles of pristine, quiet beaches where all you can hear is the sound of gentle waves and beautiful shore birds. Watch the shrimp boats, bike or ride horses along the beach, take a Historic tour and discover the Gullah History of Daufuskie or take in a round of golf. Don't forget to try our island delicacy, deviled crabs! Better still, we'll help arrange a full low-country dinner prepared by a local resident to be delivered directly to your villa.
Daufuskie has several unique and colorful restaurants (Island Shack, D'Fuskies, Frye's Corner, and the Daufuskie Crab Company) where you'll swear, you're in the middle of the Caribbean. There is also the charming School Grounds Coffee Shop. There are also several great local services that will bring home-cooked meals to your villa and even the opportunity to have the famous Gullah cookbook writer, Sallie Ann Robinson, cook your dinner in your villa, give you a cooking lesson, and talk about the history of Daufuskie all at the same time!
History buffs will enjoy exploring the island and visiting various sites providing a glimpse into the past, including the recently restored Oyster House used as a 19th century Gullah meeting place, the Billie Burns Museum, ancient cemeteries, and the two-room schoolhouse where renowned author Pat Conroy taught and which was the subject of his first book, The Water is Wide.
Those interested in unique shopping opportunities will want to visit the Iron Fish Art Gallery, Wine and Woodworks, Daufuskie Blues, and Daufuskie Soap Co, to name a few! And you certainly don't want to miss the Daufuskie Island Community Farm, where old and young visitors alike are encouraged to help feed the chickens and even to try milking a goat!
The island's motto is 'No Bridge? No Problem!
"Daufuskie Rental Group made our stay the perfect vacation. The team went above and beyond our expectations to make our stay stress free. I highly recommend using the company when planning a stay on Daufuskie Island."
"We've stayed in many properties on Daufuskie, in both Melrose and Bloody Point. The Sycamore was, hands down, our favorite rental yet. Everything was perfect. It's really just a perfect cottage. And the folks at DRG were so quick to respond and even anticipate needs. We couldn't possibly have asked for anything more. We can't wait to come back and hopefully stay in this very cottage again."
"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."
"DRG is awesome! Their hospitality and communication was incredible from the moment I rented through the day we left. The house was spotless and had everything we needed. The local info provided regarding logistics of getting to the island and what we needed to bring was so helpful! There was nothing we needed and didn't have. DRG checked on us throughout the trip providing great new tidbits of info each time. This property was magical and we enjoyed our stay so very much!"
"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!"
