Sea Stars Cottage!

History: Sea Stars Cottage (aka the “Judkins-Seay” Cottage to Tybee historians) is an original Raised Tybee Cottage, a unique style of residential architecture that was introduced on Tybee Island after completion of the Tybee Road in 1923. The lovingly restored cottage was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2017! Percy Judkins, the owner of the Savannah Planing Mill Company, built the cottage in 1932 as a summer retreat, but also intended the cottage to serve as an advertisement and showcase for his company’s products. You’ll find his company stamp is prominently affixed to nearly every structural pier and beam on the ground level. Premium building materials were used throughout, from the soft Georgia pine perimeter fencing to the wrap-around lattice, to the interior of the cottage which features the original “Heart Of Pine” woodwork, perhaps one of the last of the Raised Tybee Cottages to remain untouched and in pristine condition.

Newly updated Fall 2016 with a brand new Jack and Jill bathroom!

Original heart pine wood on the walls and floors, large wraparound porch with EIGHT rocking chairs.

Located in the South end of Tybee- one block from the beach and 2 blocks to "downtown Tybee". Pets welcome, cottage has a fenced yard. Back deck off the kitchen to enjoy the morning sun. Full of original local art and decorated in the "shabby chic" cottage style.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved our stay at the Sea Stars Cottage! The cottage is big with a historic New England feel-- lots of rich, dark woods inside, but with beachy, Tybee-color accents throughout. Plenty of room for extended families to spread out, read, and visit, with multiple common areas both inside and outside including a wrap-around porch with rocking chairs. AND the cottage is just a few houses back from the beach! We loved the long, indoor sun porch, and enjoyed our meals on the sunny back deck-- even though it was January! For winter stays, the home is super-warm and cozy with a powerful central heater, and cozy "fire logs" in the living room. The kitchen is bright and airy-- fun to drink the Mermaid Morning Bliss coffee and feel the ocean breezes from the back deck. Loved it! #visittybee #mermaidcottages

We loved staying in this beautiful home. It has all the charm of an older home with modern conveniences. Our favorite part of the house is the 3 showers downstairs to rinse off in after our beach days. It is just a short walk from the beach. We loved our stay there.
