Comfortable…Charming…Convenient……This classic cottage on Tybee Island, Georgia, has a taste of the past with the convenience of modern living. Come! It will be a vacation you will never forget. It is a delightful circa 1040’s Classic Tybee Raised Cottage.
The four bedrooms sleep 8. The living area and sun porch form a large ‘L’ shaped seating area with an abundance of very comfortable seating.
The décor of this Tybee beach house is charming. It has been ‘decorated with love’ over the past 50 years. Every nook and cranny has something special to ‘see’. It does not have that ‘done by a decorator/department store’ look, where everything ‘matches’. The art and décor here is lovely. You will feel so comfortable and right at-home the minute you walk in the front door and step on the original 1940’s ‘heart of pine’ floor.
The master bedroom is upstairs with a king size bed and a daybed with trundle in case you have small children you need close by. Downstairs there are 3 guest rooms. (1 king bed, 1 double bed and 1 queen bed) All bedrooms have nice firm mattresses. Everyone has the privacy of having their own bedroom. There are no ‘sleep sofas’ or futons…just comfortable beds in nice bedrooms.
The large galley kitchen is well equipped to make meals for the crowd or for everyone to grab a sandwich after a morning on the beach without being in each other’s way. It has a sink/garbage disposal at each end of the 24 foot long counter.
The dining area makes it so pleasant to serve meals for everyone. The large custom made dining table seats 8-10. The built in buffet server can be used as a breakfast bar, salad bar, dessert bar or just to serve your meals ‘buffet style’.
Two wonderful screened porches are on the south side of the house. They catch that delightful easterly breeze coming off the ocean that blows down 12th Street and rustles through the palm trees in the yard. These porches are a favorite ‘hang out’ place for all the guests for coffee in the early mornings and cool drinks late in the afternoon. A huge side yard can be viewed from both porches. That large yard has room for lots of parking with plenty of yard left for ‘outside play’.
This Tybee beach house is not ‘rental property’ as such. It is our family beach house that I am renting some. There is a huge difference. It doesn’t have that ‘decorated for rental look’. It is nice.
Location, location, location! What a difference it makes…The cottage is located in the much desired mid-island part of Tybee. It is on a quiet small street that is part of the Tybee Bike Trail. Our 12th Street Beach is away from the public parking lots and day trippers that flock to the south and north ends of the island. It is a nice residential beach that is only a short 5 minute walk away. A convenient beach wagon makes it so easy to haul all your ‘beach stuff’ back and forth with very little effort.
Everyone who stays here loves the cottage. It is special. Come and see why!
