Sweetgum Cottage, Daufuskie Island Vacation Rental Group

Daufuskie Rental Group is proud to introduce the Sweetgum 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 the Melrose beach and Atlantic Ocean.

As are all the Coastal Collection properties, the Sweetgum Cottage is, quite frankly, drop-dead beautiful. Decorated by Atlanta designers, every room is a showcase of casual elegance and comfort. There is no space in the house that is not touched with exquisite lighting, artwork, and furnishings.

And the location is sublime! The Sweetgum 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, the fourth one has two queens. (Perfect for parents who want to share the space with their little ones.) The fifth bedroom has a queen bed and the bathroom is directly across the hall. Coastal 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 Sweetgum Cottage!

"We had a great weekend! This was the first beach trip with our grand babies and the house was very comfortable and easy to handle for babies’ schedules. Right on the beach. We could come and go. The outdoor shower with hot and cold water was so convenient! The house felt so comfortable for the whole family. The hostess was very helpful, and the communication was excellent. We hope to return to 82 Avenue of Oaks soon again!"
