Large sitting porches with one screened in to enjoy the evening after a full day on the water or golfing 18 holes. Private dock privileges and minutes from ICW Marker 145 in Sapelo Sound. Three bedrooms and two full baths with luxury linens and fluffy towels. Comfortably accommodates 6 guests and could have children on blow up queen mattress. Crab and fish right off the dock and cook it up for dinner. Explore the unspoiled beaches of Blackbeard, Sapelo, St. Catherine's Ossabaw and Cabretta Islands. Stroll under our live oaks covered with resurrection fern and dripping with Spanish moss. Watch the dolphins parade through the waterways and the sea and shore birds feed in the salt water rivers and acres of marsh. The area is great for walking, biking, or golf carting to take it all in. Moderate temperatures are featured year round. Book a charter to not waste your time with 'fishing' for fish, and then you can do it on your own thereafter! Coastal Relaxation, Rejuvenation, and Refreshing are just a few comments we have heard from our guests during and after their visit to our Tabby Cottage. Come see for yourself. The property is set off to the west of the river and the property owner's private home. There is a walking path that will take you to the dock and all the fishing gear, kayaks, pool and your boat if you dock it up at the dock. The swimming pool is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day. It is also located next to the owners home on the side for privacy. The owner will not be swimming in the pool while guests are in the Tabby Cottage. Call if you have more questions.

Why Chris Reddick chose Townsend
Belly up your boat to a private dock after launching in one of 3 marinas close by or 2 public boat ramps. Enjoy the kayaks, bicycles, swimming pool, grill, home amenities galore and we believe you will be back!!
What makes this House unique
Coastal Southeast Georgia with many amenities at your fingertips and within a mile or so; yet close enough to the 'big city' activities if you care to partake. Many do no wander farther than our local grocery store upon arrival. Some don't even get in their cars after they arrive. Either way, we believe you will see our 'Shifting Sands and a Slow Pace on the Georgia Coast' New York Times article in person.

Totally Loved it!
This rental exceeded our expectations! It was everything they indicated, plus some. I originally had a concern about the length of the dock to the water, but the hike was Great for me and my pups. For the ones that couldn't handle the walk, they offered a golf cart :)
We plan to go back of they'll have us again.
Thank you TF for your explicit comments regarding the Tabby Cottage. We are thrilled you enjoyed your visit to the Georgia Coast and Shellman Bluff. One can sense the relaxation and rejuvenation you experienced at the cottage and "on the water" with your notes. The dock is a great place to gather thoughts and take in all the views, peace, and tranquility of the Shellman Bluff serenity. YES, WE will WELCOME you back at any time.
Warm Salt Coast Regards,
Chris Reddick and the Property Owners
The Tabby Cottage was an excellent chose for visiting Shellman Bluff.
Having friends living at Shellman Bluff, the Tabby Cottage gave us a larger location to all meet at. The owners were so good at wanting to help us if problems occurred ( which they didn't) and the use of the golf cart and dock for our boat made it so much easier. We will surely visit this location again.
Best Kept Secret on the Georgia Coast
We arrived on my 45th Birthday Eve. From the moment we pulled the boat in the driveway of the Tabby Cottage we felt at home. We drove into Darien to Skipper’s Fishcamp for a wonderful opening meal where they sang Happy Birthday to me while I downed some raw oysters and Bud Light. The owners (Dave & Jane) went out of their way to make our stay well worth the money. Ernie (the Groundskeeper) brought us a golf cart to haul family members to dock and back (which was a lifesaver by the way). The Tabby Cottage exceeded our expectations with a low-country feel and too many amenities to list. Our dogs enjoyed the property as well. They have a large fenced in back yard behind the cottage that was perfect. The fishing from the dock was better than fishing from our boat. While the dock is a long walk from the cottage, the golf cart made it bearable. Ernie brought us over a new gas grill on our second day so we were able to enjoy a few good outdoor meals. The only con was that the swimming pool was not ready when we arrived but Dave & Jane went out of their way to get it opened for us in a timely fashion. Chris was as good a vacation realtor as I have ever dealt with. She even offered to bring me a fish cooker if there wasn’t one at the cottage (which there was one on the back porch). We will definitely be booking this spot again, hopefully multiple times annually. You would not be going wrong booking the Tabby Cottage. Take it from someone who rents houses every summer for vacation. Thanks Chris, Dave, Jane & Ernie. We will be back to see y’all soon.
Thank you Shawn for your review accolades for the Tabby Cottage. We are all about superb guest services and pride ourselves with super satisfied guests. Please let us know when you would like to come back and give me a call.

Absolutely Loved Our Visit To The Tabby Cottage!
Mr. Dave, Ms. Jane and Ernie were the best is every way! The cottage was filled with all the amenities of home. We so enjoyed fishing and crabbing off the dock, they were so nice to have a golf cart for us to use for the long haul back and forth from the dock itself and the children enjoyed joy riding thru the trails on the property as well. The cottage is wonderful with the outside porches and the grounds are beautiful! The pool was lots of fun for our children and ourselves as well. Their hospitality is above and beyond! We can't wait to plan another trip to visit The Tabby Cottage!
Thank you Mrs. D for your kind review of the Tabby Cottage and the Southern hospitality we do our very best to exhibit and share. Please let us know whe you would like to return and we will save your dates just for you.
Warm Salt Coast Regards,
Love this house and the family that welcomes you.
We have been staying at Tabby Cottage several years. We love the place and Jane, Dave & Ernie always welcome you as family. They are very accommodating. This time we had a couple of things that need attention, the well water filter was not working on Friday when we arrived. However, Saturday Dave fixed it immediately. Also, the air conditioner was not working when we arrived. Ernie immediately fixed it. So, in the end we had a great time and plan to return soon.
Thank you so much Mrs. L. L. for your comments. As with everything maintenance is a given. We appreciate your understanding and hope to see you back at the Tabby Cottage and Shellman Bluff soon! Just give me a call and let us know when.
Chris, Jane, Dave, and Ernie.
