Property description

The 'Island Dog Cottage' is a CHARMING classic Tybee Beach Cottage completely restored. This cottage was featured in the 'Tybee Tour of Homes' and truly reflects the flavor of Tybee Island. The Island Dog Cottage is four houses back from the beach with NO streets to cross. It is a short 2-minute walk to the beach access. There is off-street parking for four cars.

The cottage has a large shady, fenced yard, a very comfortable wrap-around screened porch where you can curl up with a good book, and an open front porch for sun-lovers, complete with colorful Adirondack chairs. The cottage offers two levels with separate entrances, so it's perfect for two families, a group of friends, or branches of a family that desire some privacy. It can be rented either as a 3 or 5 bedroom cottage. ACCESS BETWEEN FLOORS IS EXTERIOR ONLY. NO INTERIOR STAIRS.

The main level has 3 bedrooms, master with a king bed and private bathroom, a 2nd large bedroom with a Queen bed, and a 3rd bedroom with bunk beds. Also on this level is a second full bath, family room, dining area, and fully-stocked kitchen. The WIFI will keep you connected to your business or friends and family during your stay.

The lower level has 2 bedrooms, one bedroom with a queen bed, and another bedroom with a double bed and twin bed. Also on this level is a bathroom/ laundry room with a full-size washer and dryer. The outdoor shower is enclosed for privacy and has hot/cold water. There is also a very large gathering area on this level with plenty of seating as well as ample storage space for your bicycles, kayak, surfboards, and all your beach gear. Please enjoy OUR beach chairs and beach toys during your stay.

Once you cross the bridge to Tybee Island, you'll understand the phenomenon of being on "Tybee Time".

About: We are the Harris Family from Atlanta, GA, and we hope you enjoy the Island Dog Cottage as much as we do! Please make yourself at home and make some wonderful family memories!

Why Tybee Island, GA, USA:
We chose Tybee Island because it's the closest beach to Atlanta. It's convenient enough to 'get away' for the weekend. The Tybee residents are so friendly and welcoming to guests. The atmosphere is very laid-back and there's always something fun going on!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our cottage is located near the less-crowded part of the beach, between the pier and the Tybee Lighthouse. You can't beat the Rum Runners at Tybee Time or the seafood at AJ's or Sundaes. There are also markets with fish and seafood fresh off the boat. Once we arrive on the island, we get around primarily on our bikes. What a treat!
