Sassafras Cottage, Daufuskie Island Vacation Rental Group

Daufuskie Rental Group is proud to introduce the SASSAFRAS COTTAGE, a member of DRG's Daufuskie Coastal Collection. This luxury free-standing house has recently undergone a complete renovation, and offers discerning island visitors a private and breathtakingly beautiful home overlooking Daufuskie Island's Melrose beach and the Atlantic Ocean.

As are all the Coastal Collection properties, the Sassafrass Cottage is, quite frankly, drop-dead beautiful. Decorated by Atlanta designers, every room is a showcase of casual elegance and comfort. Every space is touched with exquisite lighting, artwork, and furnishings.

And the location is sublime! The Sassafras Cottage is situated on the picturesque Avenue of Oaks with a wooded setting at the front and the Atlantic Ocean at the back. As a free-standing house, guests will enjoy privacy and beauty...and all just steps to the beach.

The living area features an open floor plan including comfortable seating areas, a fully equipped kitchen, a large flat-screen TV over the fireplace, and of course the fabulous ocean vista. The adjoining screened-in porch overlooks the ocean, and provides a perfect setting for morning coffee and evening cocktails.

There are four master bedrooms in the house, and one master suite with a seating area and private screened porch. All of the masters have ensuite bathrooms separated by sliding "barn doors." Three of the masters have king beds, a fourth one has two queen beds, and a fifth bedroom has one queen bed. Lovely artwork, luxury bedding, high end furniture, and elegant ceiling fans in all bedrooms await their fortunate guests.

The cottage features an open floor plan with comfortable seating areas in the dining and living room areas. The fully equipped kitchen, perfect for preparing family meals, easily flows into the living and dining spaces.

A wonderful ocean-front screened porch offers a relaxing setting for morning coffee and evening cocktails. Also included in the house is a full laundry room with washer, dryer, and laundry sink. Outside, you will find a hot and cold water shower and a gas grill.

Didn't we tell you this house has everything?

The Melrose beach is mere steps away from the Sassafras Cottage.


What People Say

"Before booking was even complete, our host was extremely responsive and helpful. Check in/check out, booking transportation, and planning outings was a breeze with helpful advice from DRG. Very flexible and accommodating for our timeline (6 women with very different schedules from different cities). The house and location are gorgeous and very well kept. Our group LOVED our stay on the beach front property and plan to come back again very soon."
