Location, location, location! The beautiful and spacious Blue Fuskie Cottage provides its lucky renters with a front row view of the Atlantic Ocean that has to be seen to be appreciated. Talk about a WOW factor!! Imagine yourself driving on your golf cart (provided with the cottage) through a quiet road lined with Live Oaks draped with Spanish moss, pulling up to the back entrance of your vacation home, walking into your bright and spacious living room, and being greeted with a dazzling panorama of the ocean and blue sky just beyond. Trust us…It just doesn’t get any better than this!

The cottage itself is located on the Melrose on the Beach Resort, and this home has undergone a major renovation that created a large open floor plan tastefully decorated with a subtle coastal seascape theme. Your island home has just been made available for short-term rentals for the first time, and it is a true find. The cottage was designed to provide an ideal space for family get-togethers, including an open kitchen with granite counter tops and updated appliances overlooking the living room and dining areas.

Each of the two oversized bedrooms has its own private bathroom (an additional half-bath is conveniently located off of the living room) and provide a lovely and serene setting where you will fall asleep listening to the nearby ocean waves. The cottage can comfortably accommodate up to 8 people, with a king-sized bed in the master bedroom, two queen-sized beds in the front bedroom, and the leather sofa in the living room providing another queen-sized bed when opened up.

Your cottage includes a screened-in porch on the ocean side, and what a perfect place to enjoy to enjoy your morning coffee while watching the sun come up over the ocean! You will actually see glimpses of both South Carolina and Georgia from here, with Hilton Head off to your left, and the Tybee Island lighthouse on your right. And straight ahead….nothing but soaring sea gulls, a beautiful stretch of sandy beach, and of course, the deep blue ocean itself!

You will find yourself strolling from your cottage to the beach over and over. This pristine and secluded beach is perfect for long walks, jogging, and even bike riding. (No golf carts here, though! This is a nesting area for the endangered Loggerhead Turtles.) Families especially enjoy the relatively calm waters where children can swim and play without fear of a strong undertow. It’s a great beach for building sand castles and hunting for shells and sand dollars after the tide goes out.

You will have free access to the spectacular Melrose pool area*, and discounted rates at Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course, and the wonderful Beach Club Restaurant.

(In addition to the Melrose course, avid golfers will also enjoy playing on the nearby Bloody Point championship golf course.)

Folks also enjoy touring the resort and the island by bike, which are available for rental, as well as simply taking nice long walks.

The wildlife is abundant and breathtaking. The resort is the home of a Great White Egret rookery, where you will see hundreds of these graceful birds settle in for the night. A nest of American Bald Eagles can be found behind the inn, and now and then vigilant visitors can actually catch site of a Loggerhead Turtle coming ashore to lay hundreds of eggs in the soft sand.

As lovely as the Melrose on the Beach resort is, you will want to spend time exploring the rest of this unique and special island. Accessible only by ferry, Daufuskie's isolation from the hustle and bustle of the mainland provides a one-of-its-kind experience for those looking to truly get away from it all. (See below under 'Owners Profile') for a more detailed description of the island.)

If you're looking for an old-fashioned Beach vacation experience, this beautiful cottage will exceed your expectations. We expect it will be very popular with island visitors, so be sure to reserve your time at this lovely vacation home today!

*The Melrose on the Beach pools are not open year-round, and the pool seasons are determined solely by the resort.

Quite simply, this vacation home has it all! Unsurpassed ocean and beach views, a lovely resort location, and...most of all...situated on Daufuskie Island, one of the best-kept secrets on the Eastern coast of the United States.

This gorgeous beachfront cottage is located on one of the best-kept secrets on the eastern coasts: Daufuskie Island. Your home overlooks 2 miles of pristine, quiet beaches where all you can hear is the sound of gentle waves and beautiful shore birds. Watch the shrimp boats, bike or ride horses along the beach, take a Historic tour and discover the Gullah History of Daufuskie or take in a round of golf. Don't forget to try our island delicacy, deviled crabs! Better still, we'll help arrange a full low-country dinner prepared by a local resident to be delivered directly to your cottage.

Daufuskie has several unique and colorful restaurants (Marshside Mama's and the Daufuskie Crab Company) where you'll swear you're in the middle of the Caribbean, as well as the casual but upscale Eagle's Nest at Bloody Point.

History buffs will enjoy exploring the island and visiting various sites providing a glimpse into the past, including the recently-restored Oyster House used as a 19th century Gullah meeting place, the Billie Burns Museum, ancient cemeteries, and the two-room school house where renowned author Pat Conroy taught and which was the subject of his first book, The Water is Wide.

Those interested in unique shopping opportunities will want to visit the Iron Fish Art Gallery, the Glass House, and the weekly farmer's market held at the public dock during the warmer months. And you certainly don't want to miss the Daufuskie Island Community Farm, where old and young visitors alike are encouraged to help feed the chickens and even to try milking a goat!

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5
We have absolutely enjoyed our week here. My husband and I stayed at Melrose 19 years ago and our oldest daughter who is 14 came last year with friends and begged for us to come here for our vacation this summer. We are so glad we came! Things have changed a bit since we were here 19 years ago, but we have loved every minute of it. If you love the outdoors, you would love Daufuskie-from bike riding, to horseback riding or just sitting on the porch. The scenery is breathtaking and the people here have been very nice and helpful. We love the cottage. Beautifully decorated inside and out! We will definitely plan a vacation here again!

We are so glad you enjoyed your time here, and especially that you liked the pretty "Blue Fuskie Cottage!" This has been a very popular cottage, and visitors especially enjoy the direct view of the ocean and the great beach just steps from the cottage.

Hope you come back and see us again next year!

Fabulous Spring Break Excursion

  • 5 of 5
Our family of three (3) visited Daufuskie Island for a last minute Spring Break excursion. The quiet island was a beautiful balance of unspoiled beaches and dirt roads, and manicured golf courses and vacation communities. Deborah of Daufuskie Rental Group was an absolute pleasure to interact with and was most accommodating of all of our needs and requests. The cottage was beautiful and very comfortable, and the beautiful views from the screened porch and the master bedroom (especially sunrise) were unforgettable. May River Excursions was a pleasure to deal with, and the island is full of interesting historical sites. We look forward to returning to "our" little cottage with our older son and highly recommend both the little blue cottage and the Daufuskie Rental Group.

Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was perfect for our family of four...it has an updated kitchen, open porch on the back of the house, nice wood floors throughout the home, furniture was in excellent condition, and the linens were clean and top quality on the beds. We will be renting this place again if we can.

Fabulous Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I visited Daufuskie Island for a long-weekend getaway in October and loved it! The Melrose on the Beach cottage was beautiful and perfectly maintained; the beach was steps away and lovely, and we had it practically to ourselves; finding and experiencing the cottage industries on the island was delightful (by all means visit the Silver Dew Pottery and meet Lancy and Emily Burn); getting around via golf cart was fun and adventurous; the restaurants and food were excellent; and the islanders friendly, especially the folks at Daufuskie Rental Group. Very accommodating and helpful. Recommend using May River Excursions to get to and from the island, which isn't as easy as it could be, but turns out to be part of the adventure. Beautiful ride there! A wonderful vacation spot. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the experience.

My wife and I had a wonderful stay. It was our first trip to the island and everything met our expectations. We commented to each other several times during our stay of how nice everyone is here and how clean the island was. Will definitely be back.
