About the Owner

The McNeal Cottage built in 1925 by William B. McNeal. The home was built to take advantage of the sea breeze. Triple hung windows were made to catch even the smallest breeze.

The home sits on a tabby foundation from a previous home that was swept away during the hurricane of 1893. Information on the hurricane can be found in the Chatham County library on Butler Ave.

The home is built of Cypress wood harvested by Argent Lumber company of Hardeville South Carolina. William B. McNeal was a partner in the company along with his brothers, J. Ross McNeal and Horace W. Phillips, Jr.

The family has tried to keep the house all original with a few modern advances. We hope you enjoy our little piece of heaven on earth as much as we do!

Revisiting Old Tybee

  • 5 of 5
Wanted my grandchildren to have the experience of the Tybee I knew growing up in Savannah. The experience far exceeded my expectations. My children and grandchildren had a wonderful time being near the beach and enjoying the porch...hammock, ping pong table and card games. The children slept downstairs (2 boys in one room and 4 girls in bunk room) and the adults upstairs. Would highly recommend this for a family get away.

Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We spent Memorial Day weekend at the beautiful McNeal House! Our children loved playing on the porch and had severl intense games of ping pong! The house has such a historic southern charm and many updates since the description listing. The bath upstairs now has a full shower and is very convenient! The weather was perfect and the lot is private, so we slept with the full length windows open each night. The ocean breeze was so comforting! The McNeal House is a wondeful property for large families looking to celebrate a reunion or meet at a quaint beach just outside of beautiful Savannah!

Charming HIstoric House

  • 5 of 5
My extended family spent a wonderful winter week at the McNeal House. I was able to choose the house and I wanted a cozy space that had connection to the area and enough room to house 7 adults comfortably. We were all very happy with the McNeal House. I loved the porch, the beds were very comfortable and the overall feeling of the house was just perfect. We all ended up really liking the "summer camp" type showers. Yes, you had to go outside and downstairs to get there but no one minded. Once you got there the shower is all wood like a sauna and the water pressure is wonderful. If you are looking for a boring cookie cutter Pottery Barn type house, it may not be the one for you. It is older and I am sure keeping up with the painting is a major chore, the kitchen is small like older ones are, but I would love to come back in the summer and open the gorgeous windows and let the ocean breeze blow over the dunes and into the house. It was just the experience that I was looking for. Thank you.

A True Beach House with Character & Charm

A True Beach House with Character & Charm
  • 5 of 5
Wonderful location and home, we wouldn't change a thing about this lovely old house. The wrap-around porch, the trek through the dunes to the beach, the sound of the waves and the ocean breeze making their way through the floor to ceiling windows, the smell of the cedar paneling, the rustic showers downstairs -- this is the stuff memories are made of. If you want something flashy, go book a condo. If you want an authentic beach experience, this is your place. Everything we needed was right here. We can't wait to come back!

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5
We loved this old house and we loved the location. It was the first time we visited Tybee and we loved it there. The only reason I didn't give it an excellent rating was because we felt like it could use a little TLC inside and out. We had several members of our family staying there and it felt like home. The huge porch was our favorite and we spend most of our time on it. We would definitely stay there again.

Would love to make Tybee Island my home!

  • 4 of 5
I truly loved this home. The beautiful cypress walls with copper nails and tall ceilings made the home feel very spacious. I could tell that an abundance of love went into building this home and the feeling that many happy family times are spent here. The enormous wrap around screened-in porch is a wonderful place for ping pong, coffee or books and afternoon naps in the hammock. At night the ocean waves sing you to sleep. The people of Tybee Island are very friendly and so welcoming. Rebecca Strony, the leasing agent, is a gracious and kind Southern Lady and oh so helpful. The home is immaculate and very well kept. Please don't forget to fly the American Flag that is readily available in the closet!
