Daufuskie Rental Group is proud to offer the lovely Dolphin Watch Cottage that has just recently joined our premiere vacation home group inventory.

Dolphin Watch Cottage

This beautiful renovated two bedroom cottage has it all! Located directly on the beach with breath-taking views of the ocean, your vacation home has a location that can't be beat. You will be within a minute's walk to the beach, and several minutes walk to the spectacular resort pool area*, the resort's lovely Beach Club Restaurant, a wonderful playground, and the Melrose on the Beach golf club. The cottage's property owner has arranged for rental guests to have access to the resort's amenities, which includes free use of the pool* and discounted rates for the restaurant and for golf.

In addition, you will be in one of the few Melrose resort vacation homes that also gives you access to the nearby Bloody Point Resort amenities as well! (Very few other Melrose properties offer benefits at both resorts.) These amenities include discounted golf, use of the Bloody Point pool and tennis courts AND the ability to use the Bloody Point water taxi departing from the Savannah Westin Resort's dock on Hutchinson Island. Once you arrive on Daufuskie you will be whisked to your Melrose cottage in a resort van.* What could be easier??

In addition, a 7-day rental of the Dolphin Watch Cottage entitles you to free use of a four-person golf cart, allowing you to explore the rest of the resort as well as the rest of our special island. (The complimentary cart is only guaranteed for rentals made at least two weeks prior to the first rental date and, as previously stated, only for one week or longer rentals.)

The cottage itself is perfect for a family, a golfers vacation, or just an old-fashioned get-together of friends. Totalling 1500 square feet (not including the ocean-front screened-in porch), the two spacious bedrooms each have two queen-size beds and private bathrooms. This bright and well-lit cottage has a free flowing and open floor plan providing everyone with a view of the ocean at all times. The decorating is tasteful and restful, and the screened-in porch is perfect for enjoying a sunrise over the ocean while sipping your morning coffee, or enjoying an end-of-the day cocktail. Special upgrade touches such as granite kitchen counter tops, TVs in the living room and the bedrooms, and free Wifi all contribute to enjoyment of this special vacation home. You will also have a new gas grill, beach chairs, and beach toys for the beautiful beach that is just steps from the front door of your cottage.

The Rest of the Island

In addition to the Melrose course, avid golfers will also enjoy playing on the nearby Bloody Point championship golf course. Many visitors 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 sight of a Loggerhead Turtle coming ashore to lay hundreds of eggs in the soft sand.

Most of our visitors also take time to get to know the rest of this special island. Those who do quickly realize that they have discovered a hidden island 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 a bridge connected that island with the mainland. (Daufuskie's unofficial slogan is 'No Bridge? No Problem!')

When you choose this cottage for your vacation, you will find a perfect setting to experience a lovely low country island with a centuries-old cultural history, beautiful beaches, spectacular wildlife, and friendly residents.

So What Are You Waiting For?

We expect this cottage to be very popular, and the owner has provided very competitive rates as part of its launch with our company. Make your reservations soon for your desired dates...and then sit back and look forward to a perfect beach vacation!

* The Westin Resort charges a $10 daily parking fee per vehicle; Bloody Point boat fees are $49 per person roundtrip (children 5 and under are free), and the ground transportation is $10 per person roundtrip.

So glad you and your family enjoyed the Dolphin Watch Cottage and Daufuskie Island! You mentioned the beaches, and the great thing about this cottage is the fabulous view of the ocean and the beach, which is just steps away.

Hope you can visit again!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed the island and the villa! Our family was looking for a relaxed beach vacation and this was definitely that. We had plenty to do - beach, biking, golf, exploring the island, etc. but it was all very relaxed and low key. The ocean is a direct path from the villa, the rooms are spacious and the kitchen had all the tools and utensils needed. Great location and well equipped.

Great relaxing place

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed on Dafuskie several times and find it relaxiing, yet there's still always plenty to do. Golfing is great, and the restaurants on the island are always good. This cottage is really nice, clean and great ammenities...TV's in every room, wi-fi, plenty of kitchen supplies, etc. It's right on the beach, with a great view. Saw dolphins in the surf most mornings and evenings. Will definetely be back.

Best Cottage on Daufuskie!!!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed on Daufuskie several times (in Melrose, Haig Point and Bloody Point). This is by far one of the best ocean views the island has to offer. The place is was immaculate, with comfortable beds, wi-fi, cable, and a kitchen with everything we needed (we cooked a good bit). The living area is huge ane even has a sleeper sofa. We were even hooked up with a golf cart of our own for a little extra. We will definitely be staying here again on our next trip to Daufuskie. Deborah was so sweet and even let us have a late checkout because our boat wasn't coming until later in the afternoon.

In love with this place

  • 5 of 5
Daufuskie is one of my favorite places to come an relax. I always stay in this cottage. It is well decorated and always very clean. Love sitting on the front porch listening to the waves, and watching the dolphins. Also love eating at the Beach Club and discovering all beautiful things on the island.
