Beach house with large yard for family and parking, close to South beach

Cozy, friendly ground level single story tabby cottage in the heart of the strand, downtown, only half block from the main beach, pier, restaurants, shopping, and bars. Two blocks from the back river fishing pier and kayak put in. Wonderful for a family vacation. Sleeps 6 very comfortably, 8 in a pinch. (1 double bed & 2 single bunks in one bedroom, 1 queen size bed in master bedroom, plus one double fold open couch in living room). Large fenced lot with off street parking for up to 6 cars. Comes with all new appliances, microwave, refrigerator with ice maker, filtered water and washer and dryer. Two new flat screen televisions with cable and broad band hi-speed Internet access. Outdoor private shower with both HOT AND COLD water, and brand new spacious outdoor patio with grill. Extra grassy lot for badminton, horse shoe games, etc. Your pets are welcome. All linens and kitchen implements provided. Bring only your food and beverages. Large grass lot to park, play badminton, cook out and sit around the fire pit. LIFE'S A BEACH!

Tybee Island is the most fun beach on the continent and so close to the wonderful city of Savannah. People are kite boarding, kayaking, jet skiing, fishing, eating in wonderful restaurants and dancing at the numerous clubs on the south side of the island. And visiting the latest place - Wet Willy's. The location of this cottage is wonderful as it is on the strand block from the ocean and just a few blocks from the back river. In other words, you can walk to see the sun come on the beach and watch it go down on the back river, all within walking distance.

Tabby is Terrific and home sweet home on Tybee

  • 5 of 5
Marsha and Bob from Tucker, GA. We absolutely loved Tabby Cottage from the moment we opened the front door. Being able to have our little dog Willie made our visit even more special and walking around the neighborhood visiting folks with dogs made us all happy. What we loved about Tabby's location is that we literally could walk to everywhere we wanted - the beach, the river, the pier, great restaurants, and shopping. The only time we left Tybee was one night to go visit friends on Wilmington. Don't know when we've had a more relaxing, yet invigorating vacation due to all the walking we did. Tabby was the perfect size and accommodation for us. Lots of room to spread out but cozy enough to relax and just chill out. Make no mistake, this place is perfect for you.

A wonderful house, and the best location in Tybee

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful find Tabby Cottage is. Only a few yards from the beach, and equally a few yards from downtown Tybee. Very comfortable, clean, and well equipped. Everything one needs to have a great time at the beach. Fenced in yard provides an oasis, even with a fire pit and a great sitting area fully equipped with grills. The layout is perfect for a family, providing privacy while still being together.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Will definitely visit again.

Wonderfulllllllll and Spacious

  • 5 of 5
The back yard was spacious w/plenty of parking, which is a wonderful thing. It was not far from our favorite-The Breakfast Club. It was close to everything, the beach, restaurants with wonderful fresh fish! We also brought our dog, for the first time and that made everyone Happy! We look forward to this again,but with more people!

Where do you live?

Sad to leave!!

  • 5 of 5
We have had a GREAT time at the cottage at Tybee! Jane was wonderful to work with and the cottage was PERFECT! Conveniently located in the middle of the block, it is just a very short walk to the beach and a short walk to the restaurants, bars, and ice cream shops. We could even walk to the IGA grocery story and the pier. The cottage is very cute and peaceful. I love the colorful decor and it is equipped with everything you might need. We stopped by Scuba Steve's seafood and made low country boil one night. It was awesome! We also did some inshore fishing with Tybee Island Charters and caught a ton of fish to take home! Thank you Jane - this trip was just what we needed!

From the Owner

I was looking for a place where we could have some wonderful family memories and a place where we could go and relax but not spend a fortune on vacations. I fixed up the cottage, went wild with the colors and made it as comfy and cozy as I could. So happy that people are loving it. They tell me it has a friendly feel. I am so glad that I am able to share it with others and have had 2 and a half wonderful seasons with some pretty thankful people.

From the Owner

The location is ideal. You can park your car inside our fence and either walk or bike around the Island. The restaurants are great and the shopping is fun too. The cottage is just steps from the beach and back river. Also walking distance to shops, restaurants and bars. I personally like to wake up early and walk the beach. In the evening I go to the back river to see the sunset.
