Enjoy exploring coastal GA from this direct waterfront cottage with a deep water private dock located at Colonels Island GA only 35 minutes south of historic downtown Savannah. Bring your boat and dock it at the private deep water dock that is within eye shot distance of Half Moon Marina for boat lift, bait and gas. Wake up to spectacular views of the North Newport River which offers a gateway to good fishing and beachcombing on the pristine undisturbed beaches off the barrier islands of St Catherines, Ossabaw, and Blackbeard. Centrally located "Midway" between Savannah and Brunswick GA, this cottage is about a 50 minute drive by car to the beach at Tybee Island to the north or drive 50 minutes south to the beaches of Jekyll Island or St Simons Island.
The Sunset Cottage sits on a large lot on the bluff centered on the crescent of the "Half Moon" River (aka North Newport River) with panoramic views of the water. Sit on the back deck and enjoy watching the porpoises cruise by and the colorful sunsets over the river.
Very nicely appointed with nautical décor, new furnishings and new home goods, this spacious cottage accommodates up to 8 guests with 3 bedrooms with a king in the master, a queen and a twin bed in Bedroom #2, and a queen and a twin in Bedroom #3. The major advantages of this property are the amazing panoramic views of the river, the private deep water dock and 3 full bathrooms (yeah - no waiting around on others!). Hang out with your family/friends in the spacious living room with plenty of seating and watch movies on the new 65 inch TV. Or enjoy some quiet time with a book and a cup of coffee in the separate lounging room. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking at home with a brand new refrigerator, cook top, dishwasher and DOUBLE oven. Or grill out on the new propane gas grill on the deck. Don't feel like cooking? No worries - head on over to the Sunbury Crab Company about 5 min away for awesome direct waterfront casual dining with fresh local seafood and steaks, as well as casual baskets.
Wireless internet and Direct TV provided.
