About Ann Barton

This property has been in my family since before the Civil War and is very special. My family enjoys time here boating and relaxing. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Why Ann Barton chose Coastal

You will enjoy the location. In the country yet 15 min. From downtown and 5 minutes to anything you might need. This property is a true Low County cottage, no frills just comfortable and relaxing. Come and enjoy Low Country Life!

What makes this cottage unique

The water views are enchanting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Blown away by the Savannah Oak in your front yard. Really had a hard time finding another in all Savannah that was as beautiful. You have a charming cottage, clean well maintained and a georgeus well maintained property. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the area! I will always think of it and the "South" with fond remembrance.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage by the water was perfect. In fact we almost didn't leave to go anywhere else. But if you are going to see downtown Savannah or Tiebee Island, this is the perfect in between location. The cottage was so clean. The view from the screened in porch for morning coffee was beautiful. Sitting out by the water and watching the wild life, relaxing. We didn't want to come home. We are planning on making this little piece of heaven our once a year vacation spot. Thank you again for letting us stay.

If you are looking for a lovely, quiet, peaceful get-a-way that is still close to both Tybee and to Savannah then this is the perfect place. It is furnished very comfortably with everything you need for today's world plus all the lovely vintage furnishings to enjoy as well. No one bothers you like being in a hotel. You can sit on the back porch or out by the water and just enjoy the peace and quiet. The nature is absolutely beautiful and the cottage and the yard is well maintained. I recommend the lovely cottage and will definitely use it again when I am back in Savannah.

Excellent Venue

  • 5 of 5

We've done rentals on Tybee and Hilton Head. We've also camped at Skidaway Island State Park. This cottage provided a near perfect mix of all that other stuff. Well equipped and appointed inside. Nice convergence of modern amenities blended into the beautiful old cottage architecture; no sterile post-modern cubism here. Beautiful yard at the end of a secluded driveway. Having Wormsloe occupying all the east side of the marsh is a cherry on top. Groceries and dining options a mile away. Super easy access to the Truman for a short ride to downtown Savannah, and if you know the drill of using Truman->Island Expessway->80 the run to Tybee is minimal. The Gulf Coast is up in our rotation for the next couple of vacays, but we'll be back here at some point.

Exactly what we wanted.

  • 5 of 5

After a busy, busy winter and spring, we were looking for some peace and quiet and we found it here. Cozy and comfortable, close to everything but far enough away from busy Savannah to feel like you've gotten away from the hustle and bustle. My only regret is that we aren't staying longer so that we can explore the immediate area more. I would definately come again.
