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!

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!

Not very private. Dock was shared during time spent their. Survey workers worked around property for one entire day. Master Bedroom bed was terribly uncomfortable.

Owner's Response: The surveyor was actually surveying the adjacent property and was not given permission to be on our property beforehand. If the guests had informed me that they were upset with the presence of the surveyor, I would have asked him to leave. No previous guests have said the bed in the master bedroom is uncomfortable and it is not old, but I plan to buy a foam topper for it before the next guests arrive. I understand that people vary in how firm they like for a mattress to be, so they can choose whether to use the foam topper. To address the privacy complaint, I have not changed the description on VRBO since these guests booked, it has always indicated that the dock is shared with the main house - my husband and I live in front of the rental house. Sometimes we entertain family or friends here with the lovely water setting and usually guests are happy to share the dock with us. It is a large dock. It is common in Savannah to have community docks, since being right on the water is so much fun. Please read my other reviews!

Amazing in every way

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end this was an incredible place to stay! The owners were amazingly kind and generous. The home was stunning as well as the view and we enjoyed the walk out to the dock several times a day. We went for our daughters graduation and although she is moving back to California with us we will probably go back to vacation at this home because it was such a fantastic experience!

Charming stay on Savannah estuary.

  • 5 of 5

Vintage cottage decorated with love, spotlessly clean and a dock that provides for solitary reflection on the waterways of low country. 10 large windows in the living room on the water is like living on a yacht with none of the inconveniences. If you love vintage buildings, this is a must and you are in peaceful surroundings yet close to all you want to see. Master bedroom closes off completely. Other sleeping area on second floor is a loft open to the stairs. Younger kids (our 15 year old) will want to be on the sofa bed by the TV downstairs. The owners are most welcoming and turn up your Johnny Mercer songs and enjoy the experience of a "moon river" outside your door. Charming in every way. We will be back!

Outstanding Location and View

  • 4 of 5

Charming older cottage on the water with great character. Easy to relax and enjoy the Wilmington Island lifestyle. We had dinner one evening on the dock at the end of the pier as the sun set - a lovely evening. Overall a very nice cottage with graceful hosts.

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!
