Why Wanda chose Savannah

We searched for a number of years to find the ideal deep water property in Savannah. We lived in the dockhouse for 3 years, and still live in the same neighborhood.

What makes this cottage unique

The amazing waterfront views from inside the dockhouse and from the dock sold us on the property. Relaxing and eating on the dock with the ocean breezes, all set in a quiet residential neighborhood, made us feel like we were on vacation all the time!

Charming place awesome views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this lovely little boat house! The views from every window are beautiful and it was great to just look out at the water. Convenient to downtown Savannah and Tybee. Enjoyed the canoes and kayaks that are available to use. No problems at all. Hosts were great and accessible if we needed them.

Very clean and comfortable, beautiful water views, and gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for me and my wife, with room to spare. Very charming inside and out, clean and comfortable, and convenient to both Savannah and Tybee Island. We spent late evenings on the dock fishing and watching the dolphins swim by, and enjoyed coffee on the water in the mornings. We saw the owners once or twice while we were there and they were extremely welcoming (got advice on both fishing and where to get the best dinner) - would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The Cabin was clean, cozy and we felt at home immediately. Wanda and Bob were wonderful and very accommodating. We loved the privacy and the views were beautiful as advertised. Location was close to anything you would need with just a short drive. We plan on coming back and recommend highly!

Great location on the edge of the beautiful Wilmington River (intra-coastal waterway). Relax in a delightful cottage built in the 1930's and completely remodeled in 2012. Hardwood floors throughout the house with an awesome close-up waterfront view from every room. A spacious living room, separate dining room, fully equipped kitchen and two bedrooms offer you a home away from home. Enjoy an updated bathroom. Cook your fish or steaks on the convenient outdoor grill under the large covered porch while the ocean breeze reminds you that you are on vacation. Or save your appetite for a low country boil on your dock that you share only with the family in main house. Plenty of room for vacation meals inside the house, on the porch or on the dock.

This perfect location between Savannah and Tybee Island means you are only 10 miles from historic downtown and 10 miles to Tybee.

You can fish off the dock or catch blue crabs right off the dock and cook them on the dock in the cooker provided. You can relax in the sun or swim in the river. You will have lots of room on the dock for sunbathing and a large covered area for picnics and reading that book you have been eager to read. Bring your own boat and tie up to the dock - you will be ready to take advantage of the great fishing in the area.

Cast off your boat at the dock and you can be in the ocean or playing in the sand on a secluded, barrier island beach in minutes. Collect seashells and walk on the beaches. No big crowds on these beaches that you can only reach by boat! Or you can fish for trout or bass in the rivers and marshes. Cook your own fresh fish some evenings and enjoy the fine restaurants on Wilmington Island

and, downtown Savannah or Tybee Island other evenings.

You will want to be at the cottage and dock at least one evening for the beautiful sunset.

For the golfers, The Wilmington Plantation Golf Club is located a quarter mile away. Another option is to take your boat across the river to Priest's Landing, dock the boat and play at The Landings on Skidaway Island (or you may choose to drive).

We have information for you on kayak rentals, dolphin and river excursions and inshore and offshore charter fishing, and barrier island tours.

We're sure you will have so much fun that you will want to return to this location for more getaways!
