                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1980

                          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.
