We had a great week. The house was perfect... exactly as advertised . A giant yard with the most amazing sunsets. Would definitely recommend this property.
Lovely historic home
This home is great for families and the beach is a ten minute golf cart trip away. While the rental home itself is not costly, the add-ons for getting to/from/around the island add up so take those things into account when booking.
Sarah Grant House
The house has a personality of its own. It was a fantastic place to stay with my husband, son and his wife, and their two year old! Everything we needed was available in the house. Deborah Smith the rental agent was in contact checking to see if we needed anything. Highly recommended!
I am glad I had a opportunity to stay in this historic cottage!
The Sarah Grant Cottage is on a beautiful property with a fantastic view of the marsh and Inter Coastal waterway. The carved woodwork is lovely. This was a first time rental for this house and a few things had to be worked out, but Deborah Smith met every need we had! She went out of her way to make my two week stay fabulous. It is situated in the Historic District of Daufuskie and I am so glad I stayed there. I went to the Coffee Shop everyday. The Church and Lucy Bells are around the corner and Bloody beach is just a short golf cart ride away.
The Sunsets over the marsh were memorable! If you really want to experience Daufuskie Island History, stay in this house. Thank you for making this a rental opportunity. N Hershey
So glad you enjoyed the historic Sarah Grant Home, and your experiences on Daufuskie Island! No doubt about it...this is a very special place!
