This premium-level 3-bedroom beach cottage is perfectly located! This cottage really does have it all! Situated on the 2nd row of the Melrose cottage area, you will have a glimpse of the ocean at the front, and both marsh and golf course direct views from the back. The Sandbox Cottage has a HUGE backyard with its own hammock for snoozing or reading under the Great Oaks draped with Spanish Moss. The cottage's yard adjoins the 8th green of the Melrose golf course
The secluded Melrose beach is approximately a 90-second walk from your front door!
A truly nice feature of this cottage is that it has extended-sized screened porches. You'll be able to start your day sitting in your Adirondack chair sipping coffee while watching the morning sun rise over the ocean, and end your day with cocktails and dinner on the back porch while enjoying the island's plentiful sea shore birds flying over the lovely marsh area.
The interior of the cottage is lovely as well. This is one of the renovated beach cottages, and you will enjoy an open and spacious living/dining/kitchen area that is great for family get-togethers or quality time with a group of friends. It includes, of course, a flat screen TV, DVD player, and Wi-Fi. Your fully-equipped kitchen with Corian counters is perfect for preparing meals that can be enjoyed inside or out on the screened-in porch.
This vacation home also comes with a charcoal grill for your own barbecues, beach chairs, and a beach umbrella.
The Sandbox Vacation Home is beautifully decorated and has many unique touches including colorful Low-Country prints and comfortable appointments throughout.

So why delay? Daufuskie is waiting...
The owner accepts well-behaved canine members of the family. However, the dog must be over one year old, not aggressive towards people or other pets, be house trained, does not get up on the furniture, and is ok with being left alone when you are away from the cottage (no incessant barking or destructive behavior). We also ask that you will be a responsible pet owner when the dog is outside, that your dog is up-to-date on flea and heart worm treatment, that there will be no signs that your pet was in the property when you depart, and that you will be responsible for any damage and/or extra cleaning caused by your dog.
Normally, the pet fee is $100 for the first dog and $50 for the second dog. All funds collected for this purpose are earmarked for food and vet care for the owner's rescued pet sanctuary.
