Laughing Gull Cottage (Lot 64) -- 3 Bedroom Private Beach Home on private island

Dewees Island, SC, USA
  • House
  • Bedrooms3
  • Sleeps10
  • Bathrooms2
  • Half Baths1
  • Minimum Stay3 - 7 nights

Dewees Island is a private barrier island off the coast of Charleston that is dedicated to preservation. We are a quick ferry ride from all of Charleston's charms, yet the island is peaceful and serene. Dewees remains in a much more natural state than many ocean islands. At the same time, the island has a beautiful community pool. Great fishing, birding, and beaches. We travel by golf cart. And with no stores or restaurants, Dewees is a magical escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life!

Relax and unwind in this cozy 3 bedroom cottage! With a loft and office (including two pullout couches), there is plenty of sleeping and lounging space. Laughing Gull Cottage is a short walk or golf cart ride from the beach access path. All floors are accessible by elevator for convenience and comfort. The attention to detail in this home is brilliant! The built-in shelving, trim work, and wainscoting give this home a cozy cottage feel.

On the main floor you will find the kitchen and living room with vaulted ceilings for an open and airy atmosphere! The living room opens up to a large screened porch lined with rocking chairs. Come home from a day at the beach and soak up the sound of ocean waves as you rock on the large screened porch! Two bedrooms are also on this level, each with their own half bath connected to both an indoor and outdoor shower.

Upstairs, in the loft, you will find the master, with its own bathroom, and an office with a TV and pullout couch for the perfect spot to work or play!

This home includes two golf carts and bed and bath linens. Ferry passes are charged separately $40/person per week. As our guest you are able to use all the amenities of the Community Huyler House such as the wonderful pool area and tennis courts. The Huyler House is a magnificent lodge that serves as the center of the community.

**This home is listed for sale. Trip insurance is required with this rental.

About Emily

Emily and Stewart are the proud owners of Dewees Rentals, aka Watson Property Management Group. They are committed to helping residents and guests navigate the tricky balance of living (and vacationing) gently on a barrier island. Emily helped build Dewees Rentals from scratch starting in 2009, and she and Stewart took over ownership in 2014. She manages reservations, interns, and rental homes from her office in Mount Pleasant. With a background in teaching, Emily never dreamed that she would someday own a vacation rental company! When asked why she does what she does she states, "I love connecting with owners and guests alike! There's nothing more gratifying than witnessing guests arriving in one state of mind (coming from their successful and busy lives) and leaving feeling more grounded and at peace with nature."  She also keeps tabs on their two curious and energetic kids and large dog. In her spare time, Emily loves cooking, design, music, and yoga. She blogs about healthy recipes and the whirlwind of today's parenting at LittleBabyWatson.com. Stewart is the partner you're more likely to see on the island. With a background in construction, he is better known to be rescuing someone from a tricky golf cart situation or taking on a repair. Between the two of them, there's no stone left unturned on Dewees!

                                          Dewees Island is pure magic, and this delightful beach house only added to the overall relaxing and lovely island experience. Immaculately clean, comfortable and stocked with plenty of conveniences, the house complements the laid-back Dewees vibe. We loved the porches, the outdoor shower off the main bathroom, and being so close to the beach. Can't wait to return!

                                          I have stayed on many houses on the island but this one has to be one of my favorite! We loved the open kitchen and loft upstairs that had a tv, which was a perfect place for the kids at night before bed time! We enjoyed our stay so much and it was a great family vacation for us! Can't wait to return to Dewees!

                                          Staying on Dewees Island is nothing short of magical. It is it's own world and having the chance to be a part of it most definitely will be one of my highlights of my summer. I stayed at Lot 64- Laughing Gull Cottage. This property is PERFECT! It's outdoor screened in porch was the perfect place to unwind and take in the nature. The house itself is so clean and pristine, but still feels like home. Our kids enjoyed the loft area because they had their own space to relax. With easy access to the beach we enjoyed being able to come and go through out the day. If you're considering this property but you're unsure because of disabilities, the house has an elevator which is amazing! Thank you so much for sharing this home with us, we will treasure the memories made here forever. We can't wait to come back to the Laughing Gull Cottage!

                                          We stayed here while my mom visited from Maine. House is very spacious and welcoming. Nice open kitchen with plenty of room to entertain! Walking distance to the beach! Loved our stay!
