What makes this cottage unique

My fondest memories were cultivated while on the salt water of the Georgia coast and we wish to craft the same experiences for you, your family and friends at Salt Crest. Imagine the pride of showing off a big fish caught offshore, the feeling of salt on your sun-baked skin after a full day of water skiing, the excitement of pulling up a cast net full of shrimp for a low country boil, and the thrill of finding the perfect seashell on the unspoiled beach of Blackbeard Island. You can now create your own coastal memories just like these at Salt Crest.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were able to bring our neighbors and our family down for the weekend to explore and enjoy a fun weekend of boating, fishing, crabbing and even a low country boil! Home was vet kid friendly with plenty of outdoor space to play, while adults had a chance to enjoy the views and relax!

Awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for a week long family vacation and immediately felt home. The accommodations were perfect and the view can't be beat. We were treated to a wonderful fireworks display celebrating the 4th of July. We ventured out a little but spent most of our vacation lounging on the dock or just escaping the world. We hope to come back soon. Loved this place.

What a fabulous escape just 4 hours from the big city!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for Mother's Day weekend 2016 and were so very impressed! 4 adults and 2 small children and still had an entire empty room! The kids favorite part was the giant sand box right off the steps, the adults favorite part was the unparalleled view of the water. We could not get over how much space there was for entertaining a large crowd! We've already got our calendars out to book up a few more weekends this summer!

A great escape!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here during our first trip to the South. It was a great alternative after staying in downtown Charleston and then touring the city of Savannah. The house is spacious and perfectly accommodating in every way. The view, the pier, and the firepit were fast favorites. I highly recommend this spot and would welcome any opportunity to return. Thanks Dana!

Idyllic Savannah Wedding Party Home Base

  • 5 of 5

Dana's three houses at Salt Crest accommodated the bride's family, the groom's family and the wedding attendants for our daughter's wedding weekend. The properties were a convenient 40 minutes away from the wedding venue at the Roundhouse Railroad Museum in Savannah. Each house was spotless on arrival and exactly as described - if not so much better! We had the rehearsal dinner in the groom's house and the Newlywed Brunch in ours. This property is definitely built for entertaining. Everyone was extremely comfortable and taken in by the beautiful water views. Dana's attention to detail and willingness to accommodate our requests were beyond compare. We will be back.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the recommendation of the three side-by-side cottages at Salt Crest for large family or wedding groups seeking rare waterfront accommodations and their own "coastal compound" to relax, fish and have meal gatherings together. I am so happy it worked out well for your daughter's wedding party. Thanks so much for the nice words.

Perfect Family Retreat for all ages to create great memories

  • 5 of 5

Not sure where to begin. Probably with Dana, the owner of Saltcrest and a "new" friend. She really is awesome. Goes above and beyond to make sure that their guest are as happy and comfortable as they can be! Not knowing what to expect upon our arrival, Dana made sure to be very honest about the property, location and amenities so that there were no surprises. Well what a surprise! So much more than what we expected. Our family of nine, four adults and five kids ages 4-19 were so excited upon our arrival. The home itself is IMPECCABLY clean and decorated. From the bedding to the personal touches. The views? Fabulous. Plenty of room for all of us to sleep comfortably and have our own space. We didn't even want to venture out, we were so happy being there with our private dock and beach area. We fished, crabbed, kayaked and relaxed. In the evening we had bon fires and played volleyball. Prepared family meals with a well stocked kitchen down to the spices. No need to bring anything except your clothes and some food. Not even shampoo, soap or detergents. Our children, which would normally be bored in such a rural place did not want to leave and cant wait to return REGULARLY(even the 19 year old). Planned on making a day trip to Savannah but never got the chance. Happy just staying there. Maybe our next stay. Went out one evening to the highly recommended Sunbury Crab Company. One of the best meals we have had. Seafood from the locals, as fresh as can be. The atmosphere is awesome along with the views . They make you feel like family. It is a must when visiting.

To sum it all up, Saltcrest was our "little slice of heaven" and will continue to be a regular family trip. Its nice to know we have the option to bring a larger party with us and enjoy the other "two" beautiful homes on the property. Perfect for a family reunion. We only regret not having our boat. Definitely next time. The canoes that are there helped make up for that, and were enjoyed.

Thank you so much Dana for helping us create such beautiful family memories. Unforgettable trip!
