Island Sanctuary in Savannah Georgia

The Landings, Skidaway Island, GA, USA
  • House3000 sqft
  • Bedrooms1
  • Sleeps4
  • Bathrooms1
  • Half Baths0
  • Minimum Stay1 - 2 nights

This is a shared home, in a gated comuninty, on an island wildlife sactuary.

Nestled on a barrier island is a bird sanctuary surrounded by Spanish moss draped palms & oaks. Deer roam the island freely. We enjoy the ocean breeze at our home located on a quiet street close to the inter-coastal waterway, minutes from historic downtown Savannah, and the beach.

The spacious queen bedroom offers a beautiful bay window with a lovely view of the Spanish moss laden old oaks, ginkgo, wild azalea, magnolia, etc. The morning & evening light filtering through the trees is a view to enjoy. There is an antique rocker in the corner of the room that invites you to relax.

This is a 3000 sqft home that we live in year-a-around, so will be sharing the home. We aren't sure how anyone thinks they can rent a 3000 sqft home for $98 bucks a night but it does happen, so we just want to make it as clear as possible. We understand that VRBO markets mostly entire homes for rent, this is not that and it is permitted to share a home with the owner in VRBO. We love engaging with people which is why we do it.

We rent the following spaces: 1 large private bedroom that sleeps 4, one large private bath, and a very large sun-room with access to a private pool. The only room we share is the kitchen, but we like to let you have your space as we go about our daily business. The bed is a Queen size with full size futon in the room.

In the village located on the island is a grocery store, hallmark card & gift shop, a hair salon, banks, a restaurant, a library, convenience store & gas station. There are also several churches & a state park and a small beach called butter bean beach where they rent kayaks.

There is a “Ring” doorbell video on the outside, front and rear doors, for security purposes and also for your convenience as I can answer the door from my phone in case you get locked out.

About Phillip Williams

The quieter of the Phil & Bev duo, I enjoy island living with all my heart. I love to see if it's high tide or low as I drive through the intercoastal waterway on the short drive to Savannah. One of the other benefits to living so close to nature is, Phil just saw a BABY deer this morning. I call them speckle backs. They are darling! As the Coordinator of Deaf Services, I am a nationally certified Sign Language interpreter. My employer is the Savannah College of Art & Design. I'm also a creativity counselor - I love to work through creative blocks with students. At the risk of sounding rather odd, I do enjoy OLD cemeteries. Savannah is the perfect place for me to live as there are 3 spectacular graveyards full of beautiful statues & artistic tributes. I am anxious to welcome you to one of American's most lovely cities, Savannah!

Phillip Williams purchased this House in 2010

Why Phillip Williams chose The Landings

There are nature trails throughout the island to explore on foot or you can borrow our bikes. Golf cart tours are available on request for a small fee. If you feel like swimming, by all means feel free to jump in!

What makes this House unique

This is a community like no other. Located on a nature preserve, only about 18 minutes from historic downtown Savannah, this island enjoys both sun rise and sun set panorama views over the water and endless moonlit trails. Another thing we like to do, pretty much year-a-round, is float around in the pool, and let the circulation system gently move us all around while we listen to the wind in the trees and the birds sing and the clouds spinning in the air, no drugs required lol....If we are real quite, sometimes mamma deer brings her twin speckle backs out to also enjoy the sun.

We usually don't get much down time after working 12 hour shifts so we always look for something quiet and comfortable. Phillips place was the perfect spot for us. We will definitely stay again. He was the perfect host!

                                                                We had a great time staying at Phil and Beverly's place. When we arrived, Beverly was there to help us check-in. She let us know where everything was and told us if we needed anything to just let them know. We met Phil later that night while we were playing chess on one of his many chess sets. My husband, Patrick, loves to play Chess, so he was impressed by all the sets Phil had. I think almost every morning, he and Phil would play a game as well. We felt so welcomed and we left feeling like we had gained some great new friends! The room was nice and cozy. It's on the front end of the house and has a bathroom attached to it, so we felt it was private enough. We were able to watch movies in the sunroom too, and we also saw a doe and her fawn almost every morning there. Phil had bagels and muffins for us, and coffee was set up every morning to where we only had to push a button. We didn't get a chance to go on the golf cart tour or swim in their pool, but there's always next time! I had never been to historic Savannah, so we were gone almost all day while we were there, but it was really nice being able to come back to a nice comfy bed after a long day of walking and exploring! The Williams were very hospitable, and we definitely plan to stay with them again.

We were able to explore the nature trails and bike baths around their neighborhood with the bikes they provided us. Sadly, my boyfriend got sick one day during our stay and Phil was nice enough to leave him some soup. We plan to make a trip to Savannah sometime over the summer and will hopefully be able to stay here again.

                                                                Such a perfect set up for a single person or couple!
