Daufuskie Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description
2bdr/2bath Melrose Cottage Oceanfront, sleeps 10
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.
