Sandy Feet Retreat, Daufuskie Island Vacation Rental Group

"The island's motto is 'No Bridge? No Problem!'


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. 

"Sandy Feet Retreat" formerly known as Spectacular View Villa.


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.

Daufuskie Island

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.

What People Say

"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."
