This dining room leads into the brand new kitchen with open shelving and stainless steel appliances including dishwasher. Kitchen is small and cozy leading into a sitting area featuring 2 daybeds with trundles (4 twins). (No door separating this room from kitchen; curtain between the 2 rooms). This area includes a small flatscreen TV. Great area for kids’ dining, napping and play! Hallway features a long, cane-bottom bench.

This is a wonderful place to stay. The cottage is decorated beautifully and was very comfortable. It has everything you need, close to the water and places to eat. And I can't say enough about both porches,they are great. Our visit was very enjoyable.

We used the cottage while in town for a wedding in Savannah. It was too short a time to fully enjoy the island. The house is nestled in a community and has everything needed.

Our family had a great time. We've been to Tybee several times and this was by far the best stay. House is in a great spot close to back river with a nice side yard for the kids to play. Screened in porch is huge and was great for evenings away from the bugs. Would absolutely recommend.
