We have a full service modern kitchen. A dining area, and a spacious breakfast bar that seats four. The living room has a large flat screen TV/DVD, a sleeper sofa, and a retro-styled captain's bed with plenty of space to relax. Bertha's Cottage is a no smoking rental. One bedroom has a full-size bed and TV and one bedroom has a set of twin beds and TV. The bathroom has sink and shower/tub combo.

It was hard to find in the dark with no dedicated driveway. Liked that outdoor light was left on. It was clean, but questioned whether the sheets in King bedroom were ever changed. Could use an update of bedding and dishes and cups. No toaster. My dog found an ossified lizard in living room under a chair. It was ok for a few days would not stay there any longer than that.

We really enjoyed this cottage. We arrived in town a little early and the owner allowed us to check in early. The ice maker and water line did not work but we had a great time!!

Perfect for a Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was very cute and perfect for our needs. I came for a girls weekend with 6 others and there was plenty of room for us. The beach and lighthouse were maybe a 6 minute walk and the outside shower was a hit! Would definitely refer this home to friends!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Bertha's Cottage! There was plenty of room for our family of 4 including 2 teenage boys and our 2 pugs. Location was great with about a 10 minute walk to the beach depending on your walking speed. The house was very clean, beautifully decorated, quiet neighborhood, fast wi-fi. The outdoor shower was very handy after beach visits. We loved the outdoor deck too. My oldest son enjoyed biking around the island. We love Tybee Island (this is our 2nd visit) and will definitely be back to Bertha's Cottage!

Charming and spacious cottage with a great location

  • 4 of 5

Bertha's cottage was a great experience with a few minor flaws.

First, the good. The cottage is spacious and charming. The décor was beach motif which kept us in beach mode even when not on the beach. We were close to the beach, (a little more than five minutes) shopping, and food. A five minute drive to the community pier. The AC worked great!! It was nice having the washer and dryer and the outdoor shower.

Now the minor flaws. The fully stocked kitchen had one tiny frying pan and limited utensils. The can opener did not work. We had to buy frying pans and utensils that we could have brought from home. The grill had no propane but the owner quickly remedied that situation for us. The outdoor receptacle did not work. The fan in the living room was stuck on high speed. We were asked to strip the beds and start a load of laundry when checking out, despite having paid a cleaning fee.

Overall I would highly recommend Bertha's cottage but would suggest bringing what you need for cooking from home.

Really nice property in a great area

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Bertha's Cottage April 2-7th and had a great time. We loved being on the north side of the island. Only 5 minutes to the beach and the Lighthouse and within walking distance to several excellent restaurants. We took advantage of the free bike rental and easily rode the length of the island. We brought our pet and walked to the local dog park several times. We went into Savannah a couple of times(just a 20 minute drive) to see a movie and a concert at the Lucas Theater for the Arts. Just a very relaxing atmosphere on the north side. We had a couple of issues with the cottage and communicated those issues to Chassidy. Hopefully they will be taken care of in the near future.
