Shipwreck Cottage: a Safe Haven in Savannah

Bedrooms 1
Space 525 sq ft
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, with Private Courtyard; Sleeps Four.

Located in a quiet Savannah Historic District neighborhood, Shipwreck is a walk to nightlife and family-friendly activities.

Wrapped inside the historic facade is a modern feeling hideaway with amenities such as a full kitchen, washer dryer, and modern bath with a tub/shower combination. The courtyard is a particularly nice spot to enjoy, morning or evening

My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).

About Jack Dillon

My wife and I met while traveling, and have continued to try to see as much of the world as we can together. We make our home here in Savannah, Georgia, now, and have just had our first child. So now the world has to come to us, for a little while. We hope that you enjoy Savannah, as we do, and that Shipwreck Cottage provides you with a great jumping off point for a new adventure.

Why Jack Dillon chose Beach Institute

The Beach Institute neighborhood gives you all that you could want as far as access to the Historic District, but still feels like a quiet little slice of the past.

Clean, unbelievably cute, and conveniently located.

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed at Shipwreck for a girls weekend in Savannah. The cottage is so cute and comfortable. Perfect for 2-4 people. The owners provide everything you need, and then some. It is conveniently located and is in walking distance to everything the beautiful city of Savannah has to offer. We have absolutely no complaints about our stay and would highly recommend Shipwreck. We will definitely be back!

Shipwreck cottage was everything we hoped it would be. It was very comfortable, quiet and decorated so nicely. I always look for comments about comfortable beds and this bed definitely hit the mark. The location was perfect.....we walked from one side of town to the other everyday and barely used our car.

Charming, fun, and convienent

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The house is well decorated and organized to feel a little like a hotel and a lot like a home. Little touches like a sound machine, soap and shampoo dispensers on the shower wall, and coffee in the kitchen were perfect. We parked our car and walked everywhere the two days we were there- about a 15-20 min walk to the riverfront. Easy to follow protocol, some funny little notes around the place with character, and helpful hints in their guidebook. Will for sure recommend to friends and would book again. Thanks so much!!

Delightful & Charming within a stones throw of all the best sightseeing

  • 4 of 5

Shipwreck was full of good vibes inside and all around. We had a car but when we were planning on drinking our Uber's were never more than $6.00. Bed was comfy, all the amenities were in great clean and working order. We made some cocktails in the blender, not something any hotel is going to have for you. We went to the beach and we were able to rinse off out on the patio. Towels were fluffy and big. It was nice to be able to run some laundry and go home with less to worry about doing. We were able to easily park right in front and and nice walks right from "home". We hope to go back sometime soon.

Wonderful girls weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time staying at the Shipwreck Cottage! It is as perfect as it looks in the photos. We had a tiny hiccup at the beginning - there were only two bath towels and three of us staying - but the owner sorted it out for us right away. The location is perfect, we walked all around the city from the cottage exploring the many squares and going down to the river. Can't wait to come back!
