Lovely location, utterly peaceful and removed, easy trip to beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a one-of-a-kind type family experience. There are more demands to getting there but unusual rewards also. We went spring break. From packing more lightly and picking up groceries in Bluffton to taking a small fishing boat winding through the channels to the island, to finding our golf cart at the island dock and making our way down the dusty road to the house, everything about this trip was unique. The house is perfect for a small family of 3-5. You feel like you are totally away, and the kitchen and living area and deck are one open, cohesive and comfortable level. The kitchen has everything we needed. The view from the large windows and deck is great. Our only wish was that one of the windows upstairs opened (there may be a bug-proofing aspect); instead, one needs to run the AC. The beach is a short and fun golf cart ride away, and it's a wide and peaceful beach, with very gentle surf. We cooked and ate at home most of the time. The two public restaurants are fine, nothing special. We recommend seeing the historical sites, touring the entire island. The old African American church and grounds are a special site, not to be missed. One further suggestion: we were driving from Northern Virginia and made an overnight in Charleston on our way in. It was great and a perfect counterpoint to the island. Savannah also is proximal for a similar stop.

Best Rental I've Found

  • 5 of 5

The Templeton cottage on Daufuskie Island exceeded our expectations! We've used vacation rentals before in the mountains and at other beaches, but this was by far the cutest, most comfortable, best stocked rental I've found! You could tell the owners stay here often and take great care in the details. The location was central to the beach and Marshside Mama's. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a cozy, clean, relaxing getaway!

Wonderful Cottage in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful 2 night stay in this great house. Golf cart was left for us at Freeport Marina and could not have been any easier. The house has everything you need and is located near the middle of the island and a short distance from all the attractions. Jay was extremely helpful and provided a second golf cart when we were having issues with the first. This is a great value for the price. Fully furnished house with golf cart is a no brainer. We will definitely book this again.

Fantastic Daufuskie Island Cottage - let's you experience it all!

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults / 2 kids / 1 dog) spent an awesome week on Daufuskie in this beautifully appointed cottage. It is perfectly located in the historic district and close to everything you want to do on the Island. It was within close proximity to all of the Island highlights, and the included golf cart gets you there in no time! Jay was an excellent communicator from start to finish. The house had everything we could have possibly wanted - and then some! It is nicely decorated without being stuffy. It is comfortable, clean and fun! It was ideal for our island getaway, and we can't wait to go back.

Wonderful experience...

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults / 1 dog) had a wonderful experience at the Templeton cottage. Lots of charm tucked in a fairly private location. Jay was extremely helpful with the small issues we had during our stay. It's a great place to relax and unwind! We will definitely book again.

I can't say enough nice things about how Jay was helpful and was quick to respond to all questions since this was our first trip to the island. Definitely recommend this property and a trip to Daufuskie for a great change of pace.
