"The island's motto is 'No Bridge? No Problem!'
IMPORTANT NOTES BEFORE BOOKING:
You will have to take a 30–45-minute passenger only boat ride to get to Daufuskie, which is a bridge-less island located between Hilton Head SC and Savannah, GA. The Daufuskie Rental Group Team is here to provide information about various ferry and water taxi options, ground transportation, and golf cart rentals.
Escape the everyday hustle and bustle, kick off your shoes and come dip your toes into the Sandy Feet Retreat! Located on the remote island of Daufuskie, this beautifully decorated, 3 bed/3 bath penthouse villa is fully equipped for your idyllic getaway with friends and family. One of South Carolina’s best kept secrets, Daufuskie Island is a secluded and quiet sanctuary that will offer you a stay unlike any other. Prepare yourself to wake up with unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean, enjoy picturesque sunrises from your private wrap-around balcony and take quiet morning strolls along Daufuskie’s premier beach.
After a short ferry ride from Hilton Head, filled with dolphin sightings and wonderful views of the Calibogue Sound, you’ll quickly find yourself embracing ‘island time’ as you explore the island by golf cart. From charming artisan shops to local eateries, a community farm and even our own local distillery, you’re sure to find unparalleled experiences wherever your cart takes you.
In your villa you’ll find everything you need to make for an easy vacation, including all new waterproof vinyl flooring throughout, perfect for those sandy toes or paws! The only hard decision you’ll face will be whether to spend the day perched by Sandy Lane Villa’s resort-like pool or making your way out over the boardwalk to enjoy the calm waves of Bloody Point Beach. Come stay and feel every morsel of your stress melt away!
Sandy Lane Villas
The Sandy Lane Villas complex is perched at the edge of the spectacular and historic Bloody Point beach. (Site of a ferocious battle between native Americans and British soldiers in the early 1700's.) The 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 is a shaded area for grilling. 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 sensational, luxurious hideaway is flanked by pines, oaks and palms.
Your villa is located on one of the best-kept secrets on the eastern coast: Daufuskie Island. Your home 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 traditional Southern dinner prepared by a local resident to be delivered directly to your cottage.
You are a short golf cart ride away from the restaurants and some situated in the historic Mary Fields School, where author Pat Conroy taught.
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 school house 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, Daufuskie Peach, Daufuskie Blues, School Grounds Coffee, and more.

"It was an awesome vacation for my son and myself. LOVED the peacefulness and seclusion from all the hustle and bustle. The golf cart rides were so fun and got to explore the island. Everyone was sooo nice and helpful. We had a rough start to our vacation (long drive from home and we missed the shuttle to the ferry. Totally my fault ) lol but when we got settled in it was AWESOME I would highly recommend these guys and this beautiful place. Thank you Daufuskie rental, Daufuskie adventures, D’Fuskie store, the Old Daufuskie crab company, transit, ferry and island essentials."

"The condo was beautifully decorated, had a great view, great location and everyone we spoke to was very receptive and responded immediately"
"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!"
