This island is amazing
The cottage was well stocked and comfy. The living room and kitchen is upstairs, with no bathroom and this made it hard on my two older siblings, but it was manageable. The view off the deck was pure nature, all you heard were birds, frogs and squirrels, we even saw a family of deer make their way through the creek/swamp. It was an amazing vacation.
Loved the Cottage! Great proximity to the beach, lots of ammenities and nicely stocked kitchen.
We absolutely loved our stay at the Templeton's cottage. It was so quaint and down a very private road. Loved listening to the frogs at night and being very close to the beach and also a great breakfast place! We would love to stay here again sometime. Great hosts, with clear directions and a very tidy property! Thank you!
Cozy Cottage in the woods!
My husband and I visited Daufuskie for our 2 year Anniversary. We stayed at the Templeton Cottage for 3 nights. It was perfect for our relaxing getaway. The cottage is so cute and cozy. The bed was comfortable and everything was clean. We loved the patio looking into woods to have our coffee each morning. We brought food to cook dinner since there is limited dining on the island, the kitchen had all the tools we needed. The cottage is in the perfect location to everything and tucked away for privacy. We will definitely be back and will stay there again. Also, the golf cart is a must on the island, and is included in the price. The cottage is pet friendly which is a bonus, so we can bring our pup next time. Jay was very friendly and easy to communicate with. Thanks for a wonderful place to stay!
Definitely the "Road Less Travelled" - Pure Bliss!
If you want to kick back and relax this is the place to do it! The free golf cart is a huge bonus and cost savings!! You are minutes from the beach-our dogs got to run free for the first time ever on the beach and they ran until they dropped and just had the biggest grins!!! Lucy Bells is the bomb for a place to eat EXCELLENT food (their carrot cake is awesome) and just down the road. Hubby enjoyed the outside shower--it was a little too chilly for the rest of us to use it. The deck is so peaceful and quiet as you sip your morning coffee--all you hear are the birds and other critters. Definitely recommend this place!
Great Weekend Getaway!
We ferried over from Savannah to stay at The Templeton Cottage with another couple to attend a friend's wedding.
The Golf cart was waiting for us at the county dock and it was just a short drive to the cottage.
The cottage is well appointed and very clean. We only cooked breakfast one morning, but the kitchen has everything you need and appliances are in great shape.
We enjoyed sitting out on the deck where we were in the midst of the trees and could watch otter and other critters (from afar) It was nice to have our own bathrooms and not have to share! There is a really cool outside shower as well, which was great after a Saturday morning run.
We enjoyed the afternoon on Saturday exploring the island in our golf cart: Visited the walking farm and saw goats, chickens, and hogs. The caretaker was very friendly and showed us the baby goats that were only 2 days old. The farm has a donation box which goes to help take care of the animals. Then we were off to the Daufuskie Island Rum company for a tour and tasting. Small distillery with several varieties of rum to taste.
Lunch at Lucy Bell's was delicious. Be prepared to wait a bit as there are really very few options so the place gets crowded.
The wedding was held at Sea Oak Manor, and the rehearsal dinner was at Jolly Shores. Both places were nearby which made it easier to navigate. The bugs weren't quite as bad as I thought they would be but do bring Bug Spray with you if you will be outside, particularly in the evening.
Thank you so much for sharing your cottage with us! It was most enjoyable.
After living in Savannah for over 30 years, this was my first visit to Tybee, but I will be back!
Best Vacation Ever
The Cottage was fantastic, it had everything we needed during our stay. The owners are great to work with and answered all of our questions we had about the wonderful island before our stay. We will book again. Having the golf cart that was included with the rental was a huge plus and savings compared to other rentals on the island.
