Tybee Island cottage 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.

                                    My family thoroughly enjoyed Kokomo Cottage and the amenities it offers. Outside, the expansive yard with the Redneck Gazebo, tree swing, hot tub ,dock and creek were really fun! There was an afternoon breeze as the tide went in, making the sandbar experience one to remember! We enjoyed crabbing and fishing, paddlling and walking to the beach just a few short blocks away. At night, the firepit was a treat for smores and the festive lighting all around made it really feel like vacation. We didn't use our car at all because a grocery store, restaurants and shops are all in walking distance from the cottage. When it rained, we played darts and cards on the new screened in porch and it felt like we were still outside. If you're ready to try or have a unique experience at a very laid back beach town, this is the place for you. Thank you to Elizabeth and Cecil for sharing your place with us. Our dog had a blast too!

                                    Our group of 7 LOVED our stay at Kokomo Cottage! Elizabeth and Cecil were great hosts and so helpful. From offering advice on places to see or sharing their knowledge of wildlife in the area, they were a font of information. Cecil even baited his crab traps for us and let us borrow his outdoor cooker so we could enjoy some Low-Country Boil. They truly went the extra mile to make our stay at Kokomo a wonderful experience. If we're ever fortunate to make it back to Tybee, we'll definitely stay at Kokomo again!

                                    We stayed a week at Kokomo cottage and thoroughly enjoyed everything Tybee had to offer. The house is well equipped, with a casual fun and funky island decor. The view from the main rooms provide a serene look at horse pen creek. We fished in the creek from the dock, rode our bikes every day on the multiple island bike paths, and easily walked the few blocks to the beach. Loved the sunsets over the marsh, and the fire pit. Our family really enjoyed the hot tub, and the expansive grounds which include a great yard swing. The owners are very attentive and helpful. While the owners do have a charter business, they relocated for their boat for the week and we had total privacy. We are looking forward to another visit.

                                    We rented this home at Thanksgiving following the loss of my precious Grandmother. We wanted a private, quiet place for my family to spend our first holiday without her. What we got was a nightmare.We have stayed on Tybee dozens of times and rented from VRBO. This was by far the worst misrepresentation we have ever seen. The listing fails to mention that the owners LIVE on the boat in the backyard. The charter customers, HUGE dog, friends and family come and go throughout the early morning hours and all day and night. The entire back of the house is glass which would be lovely if not for the constant surveillance from all the strangers. There was NO PRIVACY what so ever. We felt as if we were in a fishbowl. We paid a large pet fee for our 2 small dogs to be "pet friendly" with their GIANT dog. They even left the dog with us one day while out on their boat. The dock was supposed to be for our use but space was limited due to the boats and the people and dog coming and going. We had to move all our things out of their way and they wet my children with a hose one day when returning with charter customers. Even though we were their guests- we felt very much in their way. The house has serious plumbing problems, with roaches in the dishwasher and shower drains. To top it all off, the owner told us he had been ill with a "bug" when we arrived, but still imposed himself on us at every opportunity, resulting in my husband and my mother becoming VERY ILL for the next week. I wrote a letter to the owners and VRBO. I got an email from the woman thanking me for my comments. That is all. If you enjoy vacationing with random strangers, with no respect for your privacy- this may be the place for you. If not for the "unexpected guests", the house and location would have been perfect. The people are nice enough- but I had paid to vacation with my own family- NOT THEIRS.

                                    The experience was quinessential. My family really loved the peacefulness of the surroundings. The wildlife views from the front window and bedrooms were like being right there with nature just a few steps away. The red neck swing was so fun we spent much time taking turns in the swing and of course many fun family photos. We tried our luck with the nets from the dock and cooked a nice low country boil, with a little help from the locals and an abundance of fish. We even used an old oar to stir the pot, what a great adventure. Come on down ya all!

                                    Recommended for: Families with young children, pet owners, romantic getaway, girls getaway, adventure seekers, tourists without a car, sightseeing.

                                    Wow! The perfect place to get away from all of the hustle and bustle of everyday life! When you arrive at Kokomo . . . take a deep breath and relax as you look over horsepen creek and the beautiful marsh. The yard is private and spacious . . . no one invading your space! My favorite spot is the redneck swing! A perfect place to visit the afternoon away with family and friends or enjoy a good book. It is so nice to have the horsepen creek in your backyard to fish, swim, or kayak. The beach is an easy walk down 10th street. The house has the relaxed comfort of home . . . and a wonderful king size mattress in the bedroom that I stayed in! The kitchen is well equipped and updated (much nicer than other Tybee cottages that I have stayed in). Our favorite restaurants are Sundaes Cafe (try their fried fish lunch on Friday) . . . and AJ's (good food and a fun atmosphere with a view). I would highly recommend Kokomo for a fun Tybee vacation for families or friends wanting a relaxing getaway! I can't wait to come back!

                                    If you're looking to get away from it all and spend some time with the people you care about, then you're going to love Kokomo! Great, rare secluded waterfront location and beautiful grounds with old-growth live oak trees and room to roam! Perfect for family get-togethers. Elizabeth and Cecil went out of their way to make us feel welcome and cared-for in their delightful home.They have a wonderful bonfire pit and a big group of us all gathered around a roaring fire on a cold night in December. We can't wait to come back in warmer weather and do some swimming, fishing and kayaking in the creek right out back, and have them take us out for a nature cruise!
