Daufuskie Rental Group is proud to announce the launch of the spectacular 5 BR/5 Bath Secret Beach Cottage!
It was just one year ago that a top-to-bottom renovation was completed on this ocean-front home on Daufuskie Island, SC. It was gorgeous then, but its brand new owners wanted to raise the bar, and...wow!...did they hit the mark! The acclaimed Atlanta-based White Dog Home decorators worked their magic, and the result is nothing short of breathtaking.
The Secret Beach Cottage looks directly onto the Atlantic Ocean and is a mere 90-second walk from the sandy and secluded Melrose Beach.
A bright and airy open floor plan greets you when you enter the cottage. The living room, kitchen and dining areas all flow together under high ceilings and are punctuated with coastal art and special touches. And the view!! Your first glimpse of the Atlantic Ocean will alone make your trip worthwhile! Attractive and durable outdoor furniture can be found on a screened porch that will beckon you all day long.
The modern kitchen is fully equipped and perfect for family meals. The living room includes a 50" mounted flat screen TV with cable and smart TV features. (Cottage guests also benefit from a fiber optics high-speed internet system.)
Gather together for your meals in the dining nook, be a little more casual as you perch on your kitchen counter bar stools, or...maybe best of all!....steal away to your oceanfront screened porch.
Each of the five bedrooms has unique decorating touches, and all guests will love their peaceful and beautiful nighttime surroundings. There are actually four master bedrooms, three with a king bed and ensuite bathroom, the fourth with two queen beds and an ensuite bathroom. The crown jewel is the "king master" which features a lovely reading area and a private screen porch...perfect for enjoying your morning coffee while watching the sun rise over the Atlantic Ocean.
The 5th bedroom is very special! It does not have an ensuite bathroom, but there is a hallway/guest bathroom directly across from it. This bedroom has a queen bed, a desk for writing postcards or for virtual work/school, and is simply pretty as a picture!
The cottage includes a laundry room with a full size washer and dryer, an outside wooden walkway leading to a gas grill, and even an outdoor shower with sides...but open to the sky! (DO try taking a summer night shower with nothing between you and the stars!)
Oh…by the way!…we wouldn’t dream of keeping your canine family member from joining you on Daufuskie. Well-behaved dogs are welcome. (A pet fee will apply.)
The beach is great, but most of our visitors take time to get to know the rest of this special island. Those who do quickly realize that they have discovered a hidden gem just a short boat ride from the mainland. Quiet, laid-back, and unique, beautiful Daufuskie is described by old-timers as similar to Hilton Head before there was a bridge.
When you come to Daufuskie, you will have the opportunity to experience a lovely low country island with a centuries-old cultural history, beautiful beaches, spectacular wildlife, and friendly residents.
Concerned about the logistics of coming to a bridge-less island? Don't be! This cottage is managed by Daufuskie Rental Group, the island's premiere vacation rental company. An on-island team will be available to help you sort through the boat options, ground transportation services, and golf cart arrangements. We are also available to help in any way while you're on the island. After all, we take our slogan to heart: "No Bridge? No Problem!"
So what are you waiting for? Book your Daufuskie Island vacation today at the Secret Beach Cottage!
"Can’t say enough good things about our stay and the host’s team, they were on top of it and helpful beyond what was necessary. We had a sick kiddo and they helped us find medicine for her late at night on the island. Not to mention, the pictures the pictures don’t do the accommodations justice - beautiful place and we’ll be back"

"This was our first time to Daufuskie Island, but it definitely won’t be our last. We had an amazing time on this magical island. The house was wonderful and the rental group was very responsive. It was awesome to be able to bring our four-legged family members along, too. Just overall a really excellent experience. Only negative was we didn’t stay long enough!"

"This was a beautiful home. It made me want to buy it and move to the island. The furnishings and finishes are outstanding and comfortable. I would definitely stay there again. Take cards or games if you are not tv watchers as there are none in the house. completely not necessary but if you want to unplug and be with your group, that would be nice to have. Our hosts did bring us a deck of cards when we realized that there were none in the house and we had forgotten to pack as we were trying to limit our baggage to only necessities. the hosts checked in daily to make sure that we had everything that we needed and to make sure that our stay was perfect."

"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!"
