Overview

Daufuskie Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Oversized Bedrooms 2 Large Bathrooms-Romantic or Family Friendly Sleeps 8

The 45 minute boat ride from nearby Hilton Head or Bluffton makes the stress of the week peel away with the sea breezes and the smell of the ocean. Drive your golf cart; wind through the centuries old Live Oaks, pass the lush golf course greens on to your cottage. Unlock the door to be welcomed by a magnificent view of the Atlantic just steps away, not behind other cottages. No need to flip coins to see who gets the bigger room, both are the same size, each Large with two Queen beds and private baths. Completely renovated with hardwood floors and granite counters in the kitchen with a Caribbean flare.

Relax on the huge screened porch or walk on the wide beach or shady lanes. Explore the Marshes or the inlets by kayak.

Ride Golf carts, fly kites, read books, write a book, make s'mores over a campfire, eat at some of the low country restaurants.

The hardest thing to do on Daufuskie is to decide between walking the quiet, clean beach, reading a book by the fire, searching for the elusive alligator in the ponds, sighting the seasonal Sea Turtle eggs or exploring for historic relics such as Indian arrowheads from the Civil War and ruins from the plantation days. Then again a game of tennis or a round of golf might satisfy. Or you could visit the Silver Dew Pottery for a lesson and local souvenir, the Island Museum for an education of the island or the Community Farm with it's adorable animals. Make sure to ask what the animal's names are when touring the Farm.

Or just see what the island offers your senses.

About Loretta

Our family lives in Atlanta, Georgia. We love to travel the world but always yearn to get to our favorite place, Daufuskie Island. This picture taken at Marshside Mama's.

Loretta purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Loretta chose Daufuskie Island

Daufuskie intrigued our business and vacation interests. We knew that owning a place where our family could go on a weekend that didn't stress us out with traffic jams, long restaurant lines, and t-shirt shops one after the other AND be on the Atlantic Ocean within 5 hours was a good investment in family time.

What makes this cottage unique

We chose Daufuskie because it does not have all the chaotic demands of the typical tourist communities. We felt we could truly relax with family and friends while enjoying an incredible island experience so close to home. The Atlantic Ocean views from our screened porch, bedroom and yard are spectacular. We hear the waves, watch the boaters and the seagulls while eating breakfast on the porch.

Absolutely heaven!

  • 5 of 5
Words cannot express the amount of tranquility and absolute peace that came from our honeymoon at your cottage and on Daufuskie! From the moment we met Captain Chris of May Fair Excursions for our boat ride to the Island until we left (kicking and screaming) for our trip home, we were in heaven. The cottage was gorgeous, the locals were very friendly and hospitable, the food was amazing, the atmosphere tranquil, and the weather was perfect! I can not come up with enough adjectives to express our love for the Island and your cottage! I highly suggest a fishing trip with Captain Chris, eating the Deviled Crab and trying the Scrap Iron at the Free Port Marina, having drinks and lunch (outstanding!) at Marsh Side Mama's (say hi to Amy and Beth!), buying some fantastic artwork and just general exploring.
Thank you so much Loretta for all the advice and planning tips! Everything went off without a hitch!
If you are searching for a get away, search no further. You will not be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Hello Charity,
Just the way a Honeymoon should be.... Perfect!
It IS peaceful and tranquil but you showed how busy you can be when you open your heart to the island and its' people and their hospitality. You rode the boat to the island skimming through the marshes, probably being followed by the dolphins playing in the wake; indulged in the local seafood and "beverage" while making friends with the charming locals; experienced your favorite hobby- fishing - in low country style; and procured artwork that is probably more valuable now since the artist just won an award from MARTHA Stewart! AND you did one my favorites...EXPLORED the island. I can't help envisioning how the residents, 6 generations ago, lived their lives there when I see the tabby ruins made out of oyster shells and hear about the little girls that planted what are now the grand Live Oak trees that line the Avenue of Oaks. It goes to prove what we do now can impact future generations with beauty.
Thank you for sharing your special romantic time, I wish you and your new husband a lifetime of joy and special times like these. Daufuskie will be waiting for your return.

Lovely cottage on a lovely island.

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from Loretta’s cottage at Daufuskie Island. Loretta was great…timely with all pertinent information and really caring about the quality of our visit. Our family, not having visited Daufuskie before, was a bit anxious about making the land, water and land again connections as well as ensuring we stocked the right provisions for a week away from a grocery store. She was a wonderful host.

The cottage was a comfortable and welcome respite from our normally hectic lives. We found it furnished beautifully and well stocked with books, games and beach chairs. We were pleasantly surprised by how spacious it felt. The open living/dining/kitchen space worked well and the bedrooms and baths were generously sized. The star of the cottage, and where we spent our entire non-World Cup watching time, was the huge screened porch that faces the ocean.

A trip to Daufuskie was a different animal from our past peak season beach vacations. Just a three-minute walk from the back porch to the sand and we had the beach to ourselves every morning for long strolls, and mostly to ourselves every afternoon when we swam, read and lounged.

We loved seeing the abundant wildlife (deer, alligators, herons, dolphins) when walking, running, biking and boating. “Nightlife” to us for the week was stargazing on clear nights and enjoying the breeze when a storm brewed over the ocean.

The aspects of Daufuskie Island that appealed to us—unhurried pace, quietude, lack of commerce and a vibrant aquatic eco-system—are probably possible only because it is boat accessible. Absolutely worth a return trip.

Thanks again, Loretta, for sharing.

Owner's Response: You are welcome! I'm sure having taken your own boat from the mainland made your explorations through the marsh and river Eco systems that much more enjoyable. As you elegantly explained, it only takes a little planning to organize the grocery and transportation logistics for a uniquely relaxing yet interesting vacation.
Take Care and I'll be holding your place until you return,
Loretta

WOW! What an amazing time we had in your cottage. It could not have been better. Me and 7 other moms packed our bags and left the rest of the world behind to "recharge."
Your cottage is absolutely beautiful and very much accomodating. Everything from laughs on the beach, moonlite golf cart rides to the relaxing breezes on the porch.......very much needed by us all. Loretta, you have opened up a whole new world to us all. You are such a jewell and I would recommend your slice of heaven to anyone. We can't wait to come back. You have placed such a love for this beautiful island inside us all. See you again soon!

Magical

  • 5 of 5
I don't even know where to start. This cottage by far is the best house we have rented. To be steps from the beach and able to hear the waves from the porch, you can't ask for anything more. Honestly we didn't spend much time in the house, except the last day we were there because of rain. Our meals were all eaten out on the porch, and that is where we spent 90% of our time when we were at the house. The house has everything you would need to be comfortable. There are also beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, and sand toys for the kids! Daufuskie is definitely a special place, and I am sure our family will be back. Just a wonderful experience and Loretta was very helpful with our reservations, ferry information, grocery delivery services and so on. Rent this cottage, you won't be disappointed!

Great spot to Relax!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is perfect for a quiet getaway. It is oceanfront and the views are across the sound to Hilton Head and the lighthouse at Harbor Town. We enjoyed the screened-in porch almost every day. The location is ideal for getting almost anywhere on Daufuskee. The Golf cart was invaluable. The decor and large living area is perfect for up to four adults. We will go back soon!

A perfect beach get-away!

  • 5 of 5
Make your plans to visit Daufuskie! Our stay at Loretta's cottage was everything we hoped it would be and more!

From the minute we arrived at the island and headed out in our golf cart loaded up with luggage and groceries, we knew we had a great adventure ahead of us!
The cottage , and the view of the ocean, are beautiful and we loved being able to walk right out to the door to the beach to boogie board (kids' favorite!) and look for shells and sand dollars. The screened porch is lovely and very peaceful, perfect for family meals or for relaxing or reading a book!

When we weren't on the beach, we spent time kayaking (a great trip with Outside Hilton Head ), exploring the island in our golf cart, visiting the historical Gullah sites and doing a little shopping at The Iron Fish. For dinners, we bought shrimp to cook at the cottage from the Blufton Oyster Company and Marshside Mama's was our favorite 'night out'

Thank you Loretta for all of your help (and patience!) in getting us organized for the trip -- your advice helped us in so many ways. We loved the cottage and the island and hope to return again soon.
