Fantastic quiet location

  • 5 of 5

The house has every thing you could ever need, just like your own. It is located half way between Savannah and Tybe Island. It is the kind of house that says"Sit, have a glass of wine and talk to each other". Plenty of choices for restaurants and grocery stores. I would definitely recommend and would book again.

Warm and cozy

  • 5 of 5

I loved the homey feel to the place - the decor is just beachy, setting the tone for the week. Love the porches. The screened porch on the back is nice. Not far from the beach. Wittingly to make the 10 mile drive to be in a nice quiet, friendly neighborhood. I love that there were plenty of amenities in the kitchen and we didn't have to pack all the little stuff. Thank you very much - we had a great time on our girls weekend.

Best Vacation Rental so far

  • 5 of 5

This was the most enjoyable vacation I've had in a long time. Kathy's cottage was amazing. This was a couples anniversary trip for 4 and it was perfect. Having access to the grill and back patio was more than we could've asked for. It was quite, peaceful and serene. We had access ro the washer and dryer which was great. The home was warm, inviting and very beautiful. This was my first time using Homeaway, and I had a little trouble but Kathy made the process so simple. She was very patient and flexible with when it came to making our payments. This by far was our most memorable vacation ever. We will definitely be staying here again. The location of the cottage was perfect for the distance from the beach. We were literally about 10 minutes away from the beach, we were close enough to get there fast, but far enough where we were able to enjoy quite times with family and friends.

Thank you Kathy, we didn't want to leave.... You're amazing...we will be back.... Hopefully in September for the seafood festival...
