  • Very Nice Stay

    "We enjoyed our stay very much! The space was big and confortable. The dipping pool was a wonderful addition, especially with a bit of crazy weather. The only downside was that the lower level is nothing like the first and second floors. The sleeping accomodations on the lower level were a dissapointment when we had 16 of us and needed to use all beds. The pull-out queen and futon were both in such poor shape that no one wanted to sleep on them. And the lower level has separate air conditioners that are old and noisy. The showers are older and dorm-like. Other than that, the house is lovely and big enough for everyone. We loved using the kayaks and the fishing pier was very close to the house. Thanks for all of the beach chairs and a well-stocked kitchen!"

  • Our summer vacation

    "The location and home are fantastic, we made daily trips to the beach with our 4 year old granddaughter, we walked to restaurants, the pier, shops on tybee, everything is in walking distance. We loved the cottage, everything you need for your time away from home is here, (washer, dryer, wifi, cable, phone, outside shower room, deck, gas grill, many amenities I am sure I am not including, We love it here and would recommend it to all!!!!The cottage was clean, the owners provided an easy rental transaction. I would recommend, "The crab shack" and "Lighthouse Pizza". One of our favorite things to do was take nightly walks on the beach and to sit on the swings on the beach under the stars and listen to the ocean waves. "

  • Relaxing and Homey home away from home at a WONDERFUL location

    "My family and I absolutely LOVED our stay at this condo. We were pleasantly surprised with how well stocked the kitchen and bathrooms were. We felt at home the entire time. The condo was clean and bright. The entire area was very quiet and peaceful. This condo was perfect for us because we wanted to be removed from the action to relax with the kids. I appreciated having a washer and dryer right in the condo; it certainly saved me an entire day full of laundry when we got home. My only suggestions to future visitors is to walk across the parking lot for beach access instead of around the corner and to expect to drive somewhere for dining because nothing is close by. The beach was amazing and private so very little people were around. When we first arrived someone was parked in 7A's assigned spot. This problem was resolved relatively quickly though. The parking lot is to be painted over the winter; so no more parking problems should exist for anyone. This is the first time I ever fought back tears when I left vacation. My family and I are already considering booking again for next year. You will not regret staying here!"

- A-J's Dockside Restaurant: Another great place to grab a meal is A-J's, where you'll find even more delicious seafood.
