I am a real estate broker and have always loved Daufuskie Island. My office is on Hilton Head Island, which is just a short ferry ride away. My husband is an architect. The Cottage is a perfect getaway. The ferry ride, the golf cart, and bikes are a nice change from the rush of most transportation.

Pat Crews purchased this cottage in 2013

When I go to Daufuskie Island, it is a vacation. All the stress leaves me as I walk on the secluded beach, watch the wildlife and enjoy what life is really all about...beauty and peace. You will see egrets, fox squirrels, deer and dolphin....all from the spacious front porch and too cute low country interior.

The unique benefits are what we don't have. We don't have cars, congestion, noise, tourism or crowds.

We do have beautiful beaches, friendly island people who wave as they go by in their golf cart, quiet, beauty of nature. Golf, tennis, swimming, playground, church and restaurants are available.

If you want to go to the busy island, Hilton Head, it is just a short ferry ride away. If you have your own boat, I do own a dock on Daufuskie so you can bring it and tie it up there while you stay at the Cottage!

A PERFECT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I brought our dogs here for a "Girls Getaway." We were looking for a secluded place where we could just do our own thing whether it be beachcombing, touring the island or hanging out with the locals. On the first day of our stay when we met the owner, Patty; she didn't treat us simply as guests - she treated us as if we had known one another for many years. The description of the cottage though really doesn't do this place any justice. Quite simply, you will find more than you need at this beachside oasis. It is decorated beautifully and the beds are very comfortable. The dogs really enjoyed themselves as so did we. This truly is an amazing getaway. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who really wants a dream vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Loved the entire experience. The house is CLEAN, beautifully decorated and well laid out. Ocean views and steps to the Atlantic with incredible sunrises. Loads of privacy and quiet time. We were the only ones on the beach and loved every aspect of the island get away. Our new 7 mth old rescue yellow lab had her first ocean experiences and freedom runs and ferry rides! She loved it just as much as us. Owner is a sweetheart and always available to assist when necessary. We felt at home. Cleanliness is our #1 priority when renting. This felt like home.

GREAT WATERFRONT COTTAGE ON THE BEAUTIFUL DAUFUSKIE ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
My parents and I had been to Daufuskie Island many years ago and always hoped to go back some day. Luckily, we stumbled upon this rental at the last minute before our vacation and were so happy we did. We are used to staying at full service resorts so this was a bit of a departure from our usual M.O., but renting the cottage turned out to be quite a fun adventure. We enjoyed spending our mornings having coffee on the porch overlooking at the ocean, going on long walks on the island, cooking in the fully stocked kitchen, riding around the beautiful island, and relaxing in the warm cottage over a movie. Also, our dog was in heaven! The owner gave us plenty of information and was helpful and easily accessible. We hope to go back again soon!

A WONDERFUL HOME AND RESTFUL ISOLATION

  • 5 of 5
This newly refurbished cottage was perfect for your family--two adults, two pre-teen girls and two dogs. The rooms were spacious, the beds comfortable, the furnishings top shelf, and the appliances were all new. We were next to the beach, which in late March, we had to ourselves. Island life is a bit isolated, but this worked well for us. It also lead to an apparent bond among everyone on the island. All of the people we met were friendly and so helpful. Kudos also to the owner who helped us with her accomodations and advice.
