5 star, clean, and cozy beach home

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time I've stayed at Bob and Wanda's rental, who are two very welcoming and friendly people by the way. This home has an awesome view and is only a short 20 minute drive to Downtown Savnnah. The home is cozy and clean and is a perfect little house to lounge around in if the weather is nasty out. If the weather is nice, take advantage of the kayaks the home has to offer! We love this rental and would recommend it to anyone!

Stunning view

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolutely wonderful time in this cottage on the beautiful Wilmington River. The view was outstanding and the accommodations were perfect for us. We generally stay in the historic area, but were unable to find anything with two bedrooms for this stay and wound up on Wilmington Island. So glad we found this place. Wanda was right there for anything we might need. The living area was huge - perfect for us to have our daughter and her family over for a couple of meals. We had a great time sitting out on the dock watching our grandson fish while the dolphins played not far from the dock and the sun set over the water. So beautiful!

We have been to Savannah many times now but this was the best place to stay by far. The property is gorgeous and right on the river. We spent just about every day just sitting on the dock watching the tide come in and out and the wild life. The cottage is beautiful and the owners were very accommodating. I would highly recommend this location. The only thing that would have made it better is if we would have had our own boat.

Amazing best describes this place. We are a family of four that love water and boating. This was the perfect place. Words and pictures can never do it justice. You just gotta stay there. So peaceful, restful, and views from all rooms are great. The owners are some of the kindness people you can meet. Location was perfect, not far from the heart of Savannah, near some great restaurants and grocery store. We even got to see the Coast Guard doing training maneuvers on the river the morning we left. We will definitely be back. Loved Savannah, visited Tybee Island and slept and rested like we were at home. The wood work in this place is unbelievable. All I can say is Loved Loved Loved it. By far one of our best vacations.

Great relaxing place to stay.

The house was relaxing, very comfortable and decor was magnificent. Experiencing the low & high tides made the lapping of the water even more relaxing. Sitting outside on the decks were great. Wanda & Bob are very nice & friendly host. Had no problems while staying there. Very good location and very excessible to alot of the areas to go to places. Will be going back again for another "Girls Weekend".
Loved It!!! Robin, Pam and Tippi

From the Owner

We searched for a number of years to find the ideal deep water property in Savannah. We lived in the dockhouse for 3 years, and still live in the same neighborhood.

Activity and Interests

Great location on the edge of the beautiful Wilmington River (intra-coastal waterway). Relax in a delightful cottage built in the 1930's and completely remodeled in 2012. Hardwood floors throughout the house with an awesome close-up waterfront view from every room. A spacious living room, separate dining room, fully equipped kitchen and two bedrooms offer you a home away from home. Enjoy an updated bathroom. Cook your fish or steaks on the convenient outdoor grill under the large covered porch while the ocean breeze reminds you that you are on vacation. Or save your appetite for a low country boil on your dock that you share only with the family in main house. Plenty of room for vacation meals inside the house, on the porch or on the dock.

This perfect location between Savannah and Tybee Island means you are only 10 miles from historic downtown and 10 miles to Tybee.

You can fish off the dock or catch blue crabs right off the dock and cook them on the dock in the cooker provided. You can relax in the sun or swim in the river. You will have lots of room on the dock for sunbathing and a large covered area for picnics and reading that book you have been eager to read. Bring your own boat and tie up to the dock - you will be ready to take advantage of the great fishing in the area.

Cast off your boat at the dock and you can be in the ocean or playing in the sand on a secluded, barrier island beach in minutes. Collect seashells and walk on the beaches. No big crowds on these beaches that you can only reach by boat! Or you can fish for trout or bass in the rivers and marshes. Cook your own fresh fish some evenings and enjoy the fine restaurants on Wilmington Island

and, downtown Savannah or Tybee Island other evenings.

You will want to be at the cottage and dock at least one evening for the beautiful sunset.

For the golfers, The Wilmington Plantation Golf Club is located a quarter mile away. Another option is to take your boat across the river to Priest's Landing, dock the boat and play at The Landings on Skidaway Island (or you may choose to drive).

We have information for you on kayak rentals, dolphin and river excursions and inshore and offshore charter fishing, and barrier island tours.

We're sure you will have so much fun that you will want to return to this location for more getaways!

From the Owner

The amazing waterfront views from inside the dockhouse and from the dock sold us on the property. Relaxing and eating on the dock with the ocean breezes, all set in a quiet residential neighborhood, made us feel like we were on vacation all the time!
