DESCRIPTION

Daufuskie Rental Group is proud to include the Sea Breeze Villa in our vacation homes portfolio.

Located in Daufuskie's the prestigious Sandy Lane Villas facility, the Sea Breeze Villa includes a wrap-around balcony with wonderful views of the ocean and low-country woods. Situated on the stunning Bloody Point beach, you'll find this the perfect place for a memorable vacation.

This second floor unit provides a sunny and bright villa with a direct view of the ocean at the front and woods on the side. The covered balcony includes tables and lounging chairs and are perfect for watching the sun rise over the ocean while you sip your morning coffee and for ending the day while you watch the ocean fade into the evening sky.

The villa has everything you need for a laid-back vacation. It includes an open floor plan with a spacious living room/dining area, a fully-equipped kitchen with granite countertops and all modern appliances, and three bedrooms.

The living room has a mounted flat-screen TV and a comfortable seating area with sofa and chairs, providing a great place for your family to spend quality time together.

The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, a private bathroom, and its own balcony entrance. A second bedroom with a queen size bed is attractively furnished and also has its own bathroom. The third bedroom is tailor-made for the young people in your group, and includes two sets of bunk beds. (Kids will love this room!)

The owner has thoughtfully provided beach chairs and toys for villa guests to use when they walk out to the best beach on Daufuskie Island.

Your DRG property manager will help facilitate your rental of one or more golf carts so that you can explore Daufuskie Island, including restaurants, art galleries, and historic sites.

Sandy Lane Villas

The Sandy Lane Villas are perched at the edge of the historic Bloody Point beach. (This was the site of ferocious battles between Native Americans and British soldiers in the early 1700's.) The wonderful quiet and secluded beach is just steps away from your villa via a picturesque boardwalk over the beach dunes.

The large sunny pool between the complex and the beach dunes provides a fun destination for the whole family.* Along with spacious decking and ample lounge chairs is a shaded area for grilling. The beautiful architecture of Sandy Lane is in evidence with its many columns, arches, pillars and balustrades. The grounds have been professionally landscaped with palms and flowering plantings. This beautiful hideaway is flanked by pines, oaks and palms.

Golf and Equestrian Center Privileges

By special arrangement through your rental agency (Daufuskie Rental Group), you will have access to the prestigious Haig Point Club's golf course and equestrian center.

Daufuskie Island

DAUFUSKIE ISLAND

Your villa is located on one of the best-kept secrets on the eastern coast: Daufuskie Island. Your home overlooks 3 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 or ride horses 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 (Lucy Bell's and the Daufuskie Crab Company) where you'll swear you're in the middle of the Caribbean, as well as the charming School Grounds Coffee Shop. There are also several great local services that will bring home-cooked meals to your villa and even the opportunity to have the famous Gullah cookbook writer, Sallie Ann Robinson, cook you dinner in your villa, give you a cooking lesson, and talk about the history of Daufuskie all at the same time!

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 Silver Dew Potters, Wine and Woodworks, Daufuskie Blues, and Daufuskie Peach, to name a few! 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!

The island's motto is 'No Bridge? No Problem!

*****

Fantastic stay, relaxing and great accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We loved our property, very spacious and right on the beach. Pool was nice but not heated. One of the neat parts of our stay with the property management by Deborah Smith. She went above and beyond to make sure we had what we needed. Loved the island, no crowds and relaxing feel. Just what we wanted. Definitely coming back!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

From boarding the ferry to head to Dasfuskie to leaving the island, this was a perfect vacation.

We would like to thank Deborah Smith and Karen for greeting us and making us feel totally comfortable in our beautiful villa, Jackie, who drove us to and from the ferry, and the crew of the ferry service. Don't worry about going to an island with no grocery stores, Deborah and Karen will help you with everything.

Be sure to ask Deborah about Ms. Sally Ann Robinson. Sally Ann will come to your villa and prepare an amazing meal, plus show you how to do it. Check out Sally Ann's cookbooks on Amazon and her videos on YouTube. This lady is just a pure joy.

We came for the beach, but found so much more. Thank you to all the wonderful people we met on Dasfuskie.

Great place for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean, nicely furnished, and even had a good supply of beach toys! The pool at Sandy Lane was great, and the beach was only a few steps away. We appreciated the use of the owners golf cart during our visit. Deborah and Karen were very helpful in every step of the process and very patient in answering all of our questions.

Daufuskie is truly unique, we can't wait to come back!

Island Locations of Special Interest

There are many interesting places to visit on Daufuskie, including the locations described below. All of these places will be marked on a map found in your arrival welcome packet.

Opened in early 2015, the Daufuskie Rum Company (270 Haig Point Road) is a micro-distillery that makes authentic, American made hand-crafted rum. To schedule a tour call 843-342-4786. Distillery and store hours are 10:00 am - 4:00 pm Wednesday - Saturday.

The Iron Fish Art Gallery (tel: 843-842-9448) is always open, even if its resident artist, Chase Allen, is not present. Chase has been featured in numerous Southern and Coastal Living publications and recently won a national “American Made” contest sponsored by the Martha Stewart magazine. Lots of interesting things to see here, and visitors enjoy exploring his art work on both the front porch and in an outdoor gallery area. Love honey? Chase has his own bee hives, and you can buy jars of freshly-made honey.

The Silver Dew Pottery opens for the season on April - October. This studio is run by Lancy and Emily Burn, longtime Daufuskie residents. This year marks the 100th anniversary of Lancy's grandfather arriving on Daufuskie to serve as the Bloody Point assistant lighthouse keeper. You can hear some fascinating stories about the island's history from the Burns during your visit to this shop.

The hours for the Silver Dew Pottery are 9:00 am - 2:30 pm:, Tuesday through Friday

The historic Jane Hamilton School, formerly used as the school for children living on the north end of the island, has been restored by the Daufuskie Historical Foundation and is currently home to the Gullah Learning Center and the Daufuskie Island Community Library. It also serves as the polling location for Daufuskie's elections precinct.

2. Located next door is the Billie Burn Museum, which was formerly the Mt. Carmel Baptist Church. The museum contains a fascinating collection of island artifacts and historical documents and also offers some distinctive gift items.
