Tybee Island cottage description

Now is the time to make reservations for your 2015 vacation!

I am the owner of this wonderful cottage, but I live 75 miles from Tybee so it is necessary for me to have a great management team to help me with all this.

Only a 5 minute walk to the much desired 12th St. Beach!

This is our family cottage..it is my ONLY listing...

During June & July there is a 7 night minimum, other times a 3 night minimum.

This cottage has such an 'at home' feel. It isn't 'stripped down and sparsely decorated' for rental property!

See the VIDEO TAB over the main house photo for a video tour of the cottage. Below the Rate Details (iisted below) there is a 'More Information' link. Be sure and check that out, too.

The mattresses are firm and comfortable. No one ends up sleeping in the living room on a sleep sofa. Everyone has a BED and the privacy of a bedroom!

Cottage Sleeps 8- Four Bedrooms -
• 1 king (Master bedroom upstairs)
• 1 daybed-twin with roll-out trundle for young children if needed. (in Master)
• 1 king (downstairs guestroom #1 )
• 1 double (downstairs guestroom #2 )
• 1 queen (downstairs guestroom #3 )

This cottage is a perfect place for families with children. Also it is just right for a group of friends to have a special 'get-a-way time'. It has such a 'right at home' comfortable feel to it. You WILL love it!

Don’t let the word ‘cottage’ mislead you...it is a LARGE cottage... a large 'family friendly' cottage. It is a real Classic Tybee Raised Cottage. ‘Vintage’ on the outside, ‘modernized’ on the inside. Only a 5 minute walk to the much desired 12th Street Beach! (This is a new listing. (Dec.2011)

See the VIDEO TAB over the main house photo for a video tour of the cottage. Below the Rate Details (iisted below) there is a 'More Information' link. Be sure and check that out, too.

Only 5 minute walk to 12th Street residential beach. No public parking lots and huge crowds like the north and south beaches.

Square footage: 3327 total. (With heat and air=2324. Screened porches and 'gated under the house'=1003.)


Check out the photo of the dining table that seats 8-10! It is a LONG, WIDE table. There is room for everyone and the food in the middle. You can ALL eat together ‘family-style’.

This roomy cottage is perfect for family gatherings or a relaxing getaway for friends. Such a great place to make new memories and share old ones!

All chairs/sofas in living areas are very comfortable!

You will LOVE the kitchen! (see photos)

The modern galley kitchen has a 24.5 feet long counter area.
• 2 Sinks
• 2 Garbage Disposals
• Large Pots
• Large Casserole Dishes
• LOTS of Dishes & Glasses
• Plenty of Flatware and Cooking Utensils
• Warming Drawer
• Instant Boiling Water Dispenser
• Ice Maker
• Dishwasher

Two wonderful screened porches.

The house has an unique interior design. Check out the photos carefully.

Scroll to the bottom of this page to see the larger photos of all areas of the house.

The ‘open design’ of the living area and sun porch provides plenty of room/seating for 8-10 people to gather together for conversation and sharing memories.

More Details: (You must be 25 or OLDER to make reservations!)
See' Links to More Information' below for more detailed descriptions.
The 4 nice bedrooms sleep up to 8 guests. Everyone is in a bedroom.
The master bedroom is upstairs; the 3 guest bedrooms are downstairs:
•Master bedroom has a king size bed & a twin daybed with roll-out trundle (good for young children), flat screen TV/DVD player.
•Guestroom #1 has a king size bed, flat screen TV/DVD player.
•Guestroom #2 has a double bed.
•Guestroom #3 has a queen size bed, flat screen TV/DVD player.

These beds are comfortable with high quality, firm mattresses.

(The living area has a 32” flat screen HD TV, a DVD player and a bookshelf stereo/CD player with an iPod dock.)

A full bath adjoins the master bedroom. The downstairs has a full bathroom off the hallway. A half-bath is located off the kitchen. A beach shower room with hot water and a dressing area is located in the 'under the house' area.

This kitchen is perfect for cooking for the crowd or for just a few.
The kitchen also provides a small TV.

The separate dining area has a long dining table that sits 8-10 people. Being extra WIDE the food dishes can be placed in the middle of the table. This is called eating ‘Family Style.’

In the quiet of early morning, with a cup of coffee in my hand, is my favorite time to be sitting on the swing on one of the two screened porches.

‘eleven-eleven’ is located in the much desired, quiet, mid-island part of Tybee. We are on part of the Tybee Bike Trail. ‘Our beach’ is 12th Street Beach. Being a residential beach, it does not have the large parking lots and crowds of the north and south beaches. It is only a 5 minute walk from the front door of the cottage to this delightful beach.

Everyone that comes in the door says the same thing. “This house has such a comfortable ‘feel’ to it.” And it does!
Our family has had this cottage for over 50 years. We are now 3 generations that are enjoying it. I can honestly tell you; THIS is the place to be! This is where wonderful memories are made.

(PLEASE! See the VIDEO TAB over the main house photo for a video tour of the cottage. Below the Rate Details (iisted belo) there is a 'More Information' link. Be sure and check that out, too.)

                  Location

                  The Cottage is located on the Tybee Bike Trail. (But just a 5 minute walk to the much desired 12th Street Beach in the middle of the island.) Riding bikes is THE way to see this small, beautiful island. (If you can't ride a bike, rent a golf cart.)

                  Be sure and bring a camera. I have a list in the cottage of 'must go to' places for your photo shoots around the island.

                   

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 1957

                  About: (Photo-I was 2 years old...Old Tybee Pier-1939) The first time I came to Tybee I was an infant in my mother’s arms. She brought me back again and again. I have always loved this little island. My roots go DEEP with this cottage. Over 50 years ago, I was proposed to in this cottage. Our first born child took her first steps here. I brought our 2 children to Tybee every summer until they were out of high school. Oh, what precious memories we have. My children and now their children love Tybee. It is in their blood. This cottage is so special to all of us.

                  Why Tybee Island:
                  This cottage was originally purchased by my husband’s mother. She and 2 friends bought it together. My husband later bought out the other owners. Later we remodeled and more than doubled the size. It was not in the plans to rent it. High taxes and the expense of having it sit empty so many weeks out of the year changed that. This is NOT 'rental property'....it is our personal beach house that we are renting. There is a huge difference in that. I live 75 miles from Tybee. That is wonderful for staying at the cottage, but not good for managing a rental. You will like our management team. This is a new listing. It is our personal beach home. (Dec. 2011)

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  You will not feel like you are in a rental unit! This cottage feels like you are somewhere special with nice things all around. You will love it! There are lots of houses for rent that sleep a large number of people...BUT!! You will not find a dining room table that will seat them all at once. Families making memories should eat together! That is part of the memories of a wonderful beach vacation. Priceless. We also have plenty of parking room. The house is spaceous....room for everyone. But most of all, it is a comfortable house. Every chair and sofa is comfortable. The feel of the house is relaxing. The location of this cottage is wonderful! This is a mid-island area. Nice and quiet. The Tybee Bike Trail runs by our house. This street is perfect for jogging, riding a bike, or pushing a baby stroller. And of course, there is 12th Street Beach! It is one of the most desired beaches on the island. The house sits on 3 lots, so there is a lot of room on the side lot for parking cars and playing fun yard things. You don't feel like the neighbors are right outside your windows. The house is arranged so people in the living areas do not disturb folks in the bedrooms. And most of all, there is that wonderful ‘feeling’ you have when you are in the house. It is hard to explain, but the cottage has such a comfortable-totally-laid-back feeling. That is rare.
