***

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 rented golf cart 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. 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 access to two golf courses on the island, both within a short golf cart ride: The Bloody Point golf course and (because you are a DRG guests) the prestigious Haig Point golf course. Your family will also have access to the private Haig Point equestrian center for horseback riding lessons and pony rides.

You will enjoy touring the resort and the island on your complimentary cart as well as bikes, which are available for rental. And there's no better place for 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.

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. This is a very popular cottage with island visitors, so be sure to reserve your time at this lovely vacation home today!

Manager info

Daufuskie Rental Group

About: The owners are a Pennsylvania family who love Daufuskie and enjoy visiting Daufuskie as often as possible. They enjoy sharing the beautiful Blue Fuskie Cottage with vacation visitors.

Why Melrose on the Beach (Hilton Head Island, SC, USA):
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The gorgeous Blue Fuskie 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 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!
