Property description

Kokomo is your state of mind in this secluded, peaceful, comfortable 1952 Tybee cottage located on Horsepen Creek. Enjoy your vacation while playing in the creek, fishing, crabbing, swimming or floating around. Add to your bird list while watching the entertaining varieties from the large screened porch or marvel at the dolphin and wildlife activity on the dock. Kokomo's large family friendly yard offers many opportunities for quiet contemplation, birding, fishing, swimming and water oriented activities.

This half acre property is hidden away on the backside of Tybee at the end of 10th Street. Kokomo takes advantage of cool ocean breezes and relaxing secluded tree covered hideaways. Your first sight of Kokomo begins to peel away the layers as you drive past the trickling fountain garden. Once you relax in the hot tub and garden after quiet meditation in the private labyrinth the vacation has truly begun. The large fire pit is especially designed for traditional oyster roasts and family get-togethers. The Tybee 'Redneck' Gazebo is a quiet place to watch all the activities or just another space for contemplation while you swing your cares away.

The cottage is easily accessible to all ages with ground floor entrances. All rooms have ceiling fans and cool tile floors. The newly added screened porch offers unbelievable sunsets, wildlife and bird viewing while watching the tide flow in and out. You will enjoy sitting in the gossip chair reading and watching the show or enjoying tea and conversations. The dining area offers a beautiful glass topped dining table that easily seats eight. The fully equipped kitchen features granite top counters, plenty of cabinet space, quirky tropical colors and inspiring views.

The living space is comfortably furnished with woven furniture from Indonesia, a 46' TV/HD/DVD player for watching movies or sport games. The 'Captain's Quarters' features a king bed with a private full bath, writing desk, reading chair, a view of the garden and sounds of the Atlantic Ocean. The 'Creekside Room' is furnished with a queen bed, reading chair and has a magnificent view of the marsh and creek, but you still hear the ocean. Our 'Ocean Room' brings the sound of the ocean in and has a set of bunk beds, a futon and 30' TV with a view of the garden and labyrinth.

Should you become ready for a change of pace, Kokomo is located just five quick blocks to the main public beach and within biking distance to anywhere on Tybee. We have many fabulous restaurants within walking or biking distance and we're located in the middle of the island. Just six blocks south to the strand, pier, and local shopping; four blocks north to the library, YMCA, Memorial Park/tennis & volleyball courts, and two blocks to the islands IGA grocery store. All the island churches are just in between. Savannah lies over the Lazaretto Creek Bridge just 20 minutes to the west and Hilton Head is beyond the next bridge to the north.

Year Purchased: 1986

Why the Owner Chose Tybee Island:
Tybee offers one of the truly wild places left on the East Coast. We have an abundance of birds and wildlife living in our front yard. This quirky, friendly island welcomes all visitors alike and draws each into the web of island life. Just one visit instills the need to return. Cecil and I love to educate our guest about this fabulous eco-system that surrounds us. We have the ocean to explore and a very diverse estuary to experience the natural world's abundance. Kokomo is located on Tybee's main creek and the wildlife out your front door is astonishing. We see Dolphin, Otters and Osprey in the creek as well as many shore and migratory birds.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our guest will enjoy the shade and cooling ocean breezes in unique outdoor living areas. Enjoy your favorite adult beverage in the outdoor Tybee 'Redneck' Gazebo while swinging your cares away. Continue releasing your busy life with quiet meditation in the labryinth or hot tub garden. Enjoy your family time playing in the creek, fishing, crabbing, exploring or a slow game of Corn Hole or darts. Surfing and skim boarding are just five quick blocks to the beach. Kokomo is guaranteed to leave our guests with a peaceful, healing state of mind.
