Property description

Comfortable and Charming....
A short 5 minute walk to the beach. A beach wagon makes it oh-so easy!
Look no further! Take the stress off yourself trying to find the perfect vacation beach house. This is it!

Other places would be lucky to have half the charm of this delightful gem.

The minute you walk in the front door and see the beautiful heart of pine floors and the knotty pine walls you know you are in the right place.

It is downright charming. The layout of the cottage makes it perfect for groups to be together without feeling crowded or losing privacy. And, of course, it has great, fast Wi-Fi! (And Comcast TV.)

The décor is lovely and unusual. Each nook and cranny has something special to see. It has been decorated with love over the past 50 years.

All sofas and chairs in the large sitting area are unbelievably comfortable.

Cottage Information:
Sleeps 8
Master Bedroom - King
Master Bedroom - Daybed
Guest Room #1 - King
Guest Room #2 - Double
Guest Room #3 - Queen
No Pets
No Smoking
Must be 25 to make reservations.

The upstairs master bedroom has a king and a daybed with slide out trundle. (Really good if you have a couple of small children and want them in the room with you.) The next 3 bedrooms are downstairs. Bedroom #1 has a king. Bedroom #2 has a double and bedroom #3 has a queen. King and queen mattresses are a comfortable ‘extra firm.’ Double and daybed are ‘firm.’
You will sleep well!

There are 2 1/2 bathrooms plus a nice (hot water) inside beach shower/dressing room.

Come and have an unbelievable vacation, making priceless memories you will never forget.
This cozy, but really large, cottage is tucked away in the much desired, quiet, mid- island area. (On the Tybee Bike Trail!) Away from the public parking lots and crowds, it is only a 5 minute walk to the beautiful, WIDE 12th Street Beach.

A beach cart with wide bike wheels makes that walk oh-so-easy. The PIER area is 4 blocks away. The only grocery store on the island is right around the corner.

The huge wide dining table will seat 8 with lots of elbow room for all...good for meals & games

The modern galley kitchen has a 24.5 feet long counter area. It is NOT a narrow galley kitchen.

The kitchen is VERY well equipped:

2 Sinks
2 Garbage Disposals
Large Pots (Perfect for spaghetti or boiling shrimp!)
Large Casserole Dishes
LOTS of Dishes & Glasses
Plenty of Flatware and Cooking Utensils
Warming Drawer
Ice Maker
Dishwasher
Blender
Coffee Pot
Iron & Ironing Board (On vacation? No!..wear them wrinkled!)

The screened porches are so popular with our guests. Early in the morning with a cup of coffee or late in the evening with a cool drink...listening to the rustle of the palm trees...what a relaxing time!

Come have an unbelievable vacation, making priceless memories you will never forget.

Family and friends gathering together for ‘mini-reunions’ …

THAT is what this cottage does best.

Location

The Cottage is located on the Tybee Bike Trail. (But just a 5 minute walk to the much desired 12th Street Beach in the middle of the island.) Riding bikes is THE way to see this small, beautiful island. (If you can't ride a bike, rent a golf cart.)

Be sure and bring a camera. I have a list in the cottage of 'must go to' places for your photo shoots around the island.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1957

About: (Photo-I was 2 years old...Old Tybee Pier-1939) The first time I came to Tybee I was an infant in my mother’s arms. She brought me back again and again. I have always loved this little island. My roots go DEEP with this cottage. Over 50 years ago, I was proposed to in this cottage. Our first born child took her first steps here. I brought our 2 children to Tybee every summer until they were out of high school. Oh, what precious memories we have. My children and now their children love Tybee. It is in their blood. This cottage is so special to all of us.

Why Tybee Island, GA, USA:
This cottage was originally purchased by my husband’s mother. She and 2 friends bought it together. My husband later bought out the other owners. Later we remodeled and more than doubled the size. It was not in the plans to rent it. High taxes and the expense of having it sit empty so many weeks out of the year changed that. This is NOT 'rental property'....it is our personal beach house that we are renting. There is a huge difference in that. I live 75 miles from Tybee. That is wonderful for staying at the cottage, but not good for managing a rental. You will like our management team. This is a new listing. It is our personal beach home. (Dec. 2011)

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
You will not feel like you are in a rental unit! This cottage feels like you are somewhere special with nice things all around. You will love it! There are lots of houses for rent that sleep a large number of people...BUT!! You will not find a dining room table that will seat them all at once. Families making memories should eat together! That is part of the memories of a wonderful beach vacation. Priceless. We also have plenty of parking room. The house is spaceous....room for everyone. But most of all, it is a comfortable house. Every chair and sofa is comfortable. The feel of the house is relaxing. The location of this cottage is wonderful! This is a mid-island area. Nice and quiet. The Tybee Bike Trail runs by our house. This street is perfect for jogging, riding a bike, or pushing a baby stroller. And of course, there is 12th Street Beach! It is one of the most desired beaches on the island. The house sits on 3 lots, so there is a lot of room on the side lot for parking cars and playing fun yard things. You don't feel like the neighbors are right outside your windows. The house is arranged so people in the living areas do not disturb folks in the bedrooms. And most of all, there is that wonderful ‘feeling’ you have when you are in the house. It is hard to explain, but the cottage has such a comfortable-totally-laid-back feeling. That is rare.
