We LOVED The Turtle and The Flamingo!
We LOVED The Turtle and The Flamingo!
This was my first time to Tybee Island although our traveling companions had recommended it. We started searching for a house in late winter and happened upon the cottages. We were looking for a house that would accomodate an extended family and friends vacation. These two cottages fit the bill exactly and we could not have been more pleased. Actually, it was even better than I had hoped for. Proximity to the beach is excellent and the owners bent over backwards to ensure that we had a lovely time. The cottages were spotless and well appointed and I felt like I was at home. Our Cairn Terrier went with us on vacation, so for those of you looking for a pet friendly rental, you definitely need to look here. We would definitely go back.

Owner response: Thank you for your gracious review & it pleases us tremendously to know you & your family had a great time. We offer our guest only what we would expect for our own families. We do strive to offer our guest a nice & clean place & to accommodate them any way possible. We continuously look for our satisfied customers to come back and we will be looking forward to your return to Tybee Island again. Yes, we have the blanket and it is on the way to you. God Bless
My family and I recently stayed at the Flamingo Cottage on Tybee. It is decorated cute, appears clean, and the location to the beach is wonderful. However, at our arrival we were greeted with 7 dead large palmetto bugs. We contacted the agent who rented the property to us and she was very helpful. She sent out an exterminator asap. He informed us that palmetto bugs are a huge problem on the island. We were unaware of this. He also informed us that at his routine visit the day before, he had left a back closet window open all night by mistake letting in these bugs. He apologized and went on his way. Feeling better, we stayed the next 3 days with no more bug problems. A hard rain occured on the 4th day. We left for the day and when we arrived that night, we were greeted with more dead roaches and 2 crawling up the walls, 1 crawling in the bedroom, and 1 crawling by the front door, all the length of your finger...eeewww. We were so creeped out and frustrated, we left that next day cutting our vacation short by 2 days. We emailed our frustrations and requested some sort of refund, but the agent would not issue any refund of any sort. She told us the bugs were out of her control and I agree with that for a couple but not 15-16. It was obviously out of hand. She also stated this had not been a problem by other renters, however we found in the guestbook a comment quoted, "Nice cottage if you don't mind a few roaches." So all in all, the Flamingo Cottage is a cute little cottage close to the beach if you don't mind roaches. WE DO and will not be returning. We take a beach vacation somewhere every year and have never had this problem!

Owner response: Coastal Georgia Cottages takes great pride in presenting nice, clean homes for our guest. Matter of fact, the cleanliness of our rentals seems to be the greatest compliment we receive from our guest. Insects are a part of life, that is why we have a professional exterminator spray every month for bugs; that is why you saw dead bugs. Our exterminator was prompt in responding immediately 3 different times during your stay. Due to the excessive amount of rain the entire southeast has had lately, it is not uncommon for bugs to be more of a nuisance. The exterminator searched the entire house looking for anything that even looked like a crack that could be a source of entry and corrected it. I feel confident that he left no stone unturned should there have been any place that was accessable. We had other homes rented the same week but no one complained of any bugs, but any concern of our guest is a concern of ours. You told the exterminator that you & your children had a phobia about bugs, and I do regret that you were frightened. As far as the weather----we all like to have great weather while on vacation, but I am sure we all have experienced rain from time to time on our vacations, but sighting a bug and rainy weather does not constitute a refund. I can not control the weather but I can control what's in my power and that's answering any concerns of my guest and acting promptly. Yes, we go to great lengths to make our cottages very attractive and decorative for our guest to add to their festival, "beach" vacation, thanks for the compliment.
Our group rented the Turtle and Palm Cottages and it was wonderful. The cottages were immaculate, fully equipped and were tastefully decorated to reflect the turtle and palm themes. Enjoyed having the swimming pool onsite and yet only a short walk from the beach (best of both worlds). We did take a ride into Savannah for part of a day and checked out the shops/restaurants on River St. Overall, we had a great time and able to get alot of rest and relaxation; looking forward to a return visit.

Daughter's wedding - time with family
Daughter's wedding - time with family
This was our first trip to Tybee and we plan on coming back.. Our daughter got married on the beach Saturday so my family and I rented all 3 cottages for the week to spend time together.. The owner's are Awesome people treated us like family. The was the best vacation we have had in a long time. So much to do for kids of all ages golfing, swimming, fishing, bike riding, jet sking, shopping, ghost tours in Savannah, River Street. Perfect LOCATION. I recommend these cottages to any family or friends that would like to be together but still have your space. The pool area was an Oasis after spending time on the beach - had a few cookouts. This was the best place we have stayed in a long time. Thanks for the wonderful memories............

Had a great time!!
Had a great time!!
This was our first visit to Tybee. The Turtle Cottage was just like we pictured it.. very cute and cozy, and very clean. It was just big enough for our family of 4. We loved the decor with all the extra touches like the turtle cabinet knobs and all the handpainted murals and items. The front porch was nice to sit on in the evening and watch the traffic and bicyclers go by. The back deck was nice for an evening of grilling out. The beach was just a short walk and having access to a lovely pool and garden was the icing on the cake. We loved renting bikes and my husband and son biked the entire island. Of course having free WIFI was also a plus. The only thing that would've made it better would've been to be located right on the beach. I would recommend this cottage to family and friends who need a quiet place to relax and/or reconnect with famiy.

Owner response: We are excited you were very pleased with your accommodations and that your vacation time on Tybee was memorable for your family. Yes, being on the beach would be nice - but that does have some draw backs too - mainly a much larger increase in price and not as private. We do make it convenient by supplying a beach cart for all your beach needs; cross the convenient cross walk; a few steps & you are on the beach and alot less pricey. We hope you will come again. God Bless!

About the owner: Coastal Georgia Cottages is a family owned business. We have lived at Tybee for 26 years and have been in the rental business for a long time. We enjoy what we do and like meeting people from all over the world. I'm a Captain with Savannah Fire and Emergency services and my wife is a nurse with St. joseph's/ Candler hospital. We do all the do all bookings, maintenance and repairs, purchasing, paperwork, marketing, and anything that goes along with that. My mother, Alicia, originally started this business and has finally decided to retire to do some things she enjoys & to travel. We, as a family, like working & being together. Our small 4 lb. yorkie, Scooter, you might say is the mascot for Coastal Georgia Cottages. You will probably see him in the courtyard from time to time; no you're not seeing a little rat - it's Scooter. He looks more like a miniature raccoon. We hope you will give us the privilege to accommodate you.
Why the Owner Chose Tybee Island:
We love the area and mid island location. It's nice to walk to the beach without the hassle of driving and loading your car and paying parking meters. That gets pretty expensive - usually $20 a day. Tybee is only 20 minutes from historic Savannah. I especially like River Street on the waterfront with all the quaint shops. It's a beautiful city with huge oak trees, Spanish moss & flowers. It's surely a southern town and loaded with history. Besides, this is where Paula Dean lives -YA'LL have heard of her - come try out her cooking at her restaurant or Uncle Bubba's..
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Convenient walk to BEACH, swim in the pool, relax in the hot tub! Great mid island location is handy to most everything. As a matter of fact, right here in front of the house is a restaurant almost sitting on the beach which makes it handy to grab a bite to eat and have a cool drink while on the beach. The cottage is on Butler Avenue where all the parades & marathons go right in front of the house. You won't miss anything I assure you. I, too, like the fact that the Gym, Park, bike/walking routes, ice cream shop, store, & library are close to the house.
