Property Details

Updated: Apr 4, 2015
Cottage, 5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 12 Sleeps

~~~ Classic Tybee Family Beach Cottage and only a TWO-MINUTE walk to the beach! ~~~ (will rent as either 3 or 5 bedroom cottage)

The "Island Dog Cottage" is a charming, classic Tybee Beach Cottage completely restored. This cottage was featured in the "Tybee Tour of Homes" and truly reflects the flavor of Tybee Island. The cottage is located along the desired "mid-beach", which allows for a less-crowded beach area during the busy season, yet only a short walk either way to the pier/shops/restaurants or the Tybee Lighthouse. It is four houses back from the beach with NO streets to cross.It is a short 2-minute walk to the beach access. We have a few bikes for you to use during your stay.

The cottage has a large, shady, fenced yard, a very comfortable wrap-around screened porch where you can curl up with a good book, and an open front porch for sun-lovers complete with colorful adirondack chairs. The cottage offers two levels with separate entrances, so it's perfect for two families, a group of friends, or branches of a family that desire some privacy. It can be rented either as a 3 or 5 bedroom cottage.

The main level has 3 bedrooms, master with a king bed and private bath, a 2nd large bedroom with a queen bed and large closet, and a 3rd bedroom with bunk beds. Also on this level is a second full bath, family room, dining area, and kitchen. The WIFI will keep you connected to your business or family and friends during your stay.

The lower level has 2 bedrooms, one large bedroom with a queen bed, and another bedroom with a bunk bed (twin on top and full-size bed on the bottom). Also on this level is a bathroom and large laundry room with full-size washer and dryer. The outdoor shower is enclosed for privacy and has cold/hot water. There is also a large, covered/open-air gathering place with plenty of seating and storage for your bicycles, surfboards, kayaks, and all your beach gear. Enjoy OUR beach chairs, sand toys, and cooler for your time at the beach.

Once you cross the bridge to Tybee Island, you'll understand the phenomenon of being on "Tybee Time", where all your cares simply melt away.

We absolutely loved the house. Access to the beach was easy. Overall, the house was a comfy cozy cottage that fit our family like cinderella 's glass slippers.

My husband and I spent the week at this charming cottage with family and the place exceeded all our expectations. The living areas are warm and cozy. The kitchen was fully equipped and everything we could possible need was provided. The place is extremely well maintained and cleaned. The bedrooms were comfortable and quiet. As you can see in the pictures, there are several areas inside and out for morning coffee and afternoon drinks. We especially enjoyed the screened in porch.
We would highly recommend a visit to Island Dog.

Very disappointing! Never again!

Island Dig Cottage is NOT a place you'll want to stay! Overall the house was dirty! Hardwood floors filthy; small kitchen with no counter space and not clean. Bedroom with bunk beds was smaller than most walk-in closets. Limited closet space in ALL bedrooms. Bedroom downstairs had black cobwebs in ceiling corners and smelled like black mold. Window air conditioner made air quality in room unbearable! Outdoor shower disgusting! Dangerous place for young children as there are two sets of stairs so it was a constant chore to keep all doors and gates locked. Not good proximity to beach when packing all the gear to stay for the day.

Owner's Response: We are sorry your stay at the Island Dog Cottage was not favorable. We will be updating our description of the cottage to better provide guests with room size in our cottage. Our listing does include photos of the rooms, however. The ground-level ventilation concerns are being addressed and improved.

great week at Island Dog cottage in Tybee

Very comfortable cottage! Clean and comfortable without being fussy. Wonderful screened in porch with ceiling fans. Lots of seating there, too. Didn't mind the one rainy day with a nice place like that to hang out. Short block to beach. Clean, nice towels and linens, and everything we needed in the kitchen.

Would definitely go back there next trip to Tybee!

We LOVE your beach cottage!!! We enjoyed everything about it, the screened porch with the daybed, the outdoor shower (the kids loved it), the open front porch, loved the Adirondack chairs, the fully stocked kitchen, loved that we could all sit at the table together and in the family room, all the games and DVDs, the Master bed is like sleeping on a cloud, I could go on and on.... Ken and the boys rode bikes all over the island. We had a shirmp boil and ate on the screened porch. :-) Enjoyed the walks on the beach late in the day. And your description and pictures of your cottage were exactly as you said they would be. I would highly recommend your cottage to anyone who is looking for a family friendly clean place to stay... Thank you for helping make this vacation one we won't forget for a long time.... "Tybee Time" where all our cares DID simply melted away and we DID make some memories. Thank you again for a GREAT family vacation!

This was our first time staying at Island Dog Cottage...could not imagine staying any where else now! The cottage was very clean and decorated very cute. We loved the screened in porch, nice place to relax in the morning and after a day at the beach. The layout is great...the lower level would be great for teenagers or older kids. Every detail was wonderful, the owner was very informative about the area. Enjoyed our stay here...we will be back.

Activity and Interests

Tybee Island offers the best in outdoor activites. . . dolphin-watching, shelling, deep-sea fishing, windsurfing, parasailing, biking the trails throughout the island, jet-ski rentals, kayak tours, wildlife-watching, and visits to the Tybee Lighthouse, Fort Pulaski, and Marine Science Museum. There are many shops with local art and wonderful restaurants that serve fresh seafood right off the boat. The grocery store is 2 blocks away and the library (also 2 blocks) offers "beach-reads" for free without a library card.

Bring your bikes or rent some on the Island and that can easily be your mode of transportation for your stay.

A short 15 minute drive takes you to Savannah, where you can enjoy lively River Street, book a ghost tour or wander through Historic Homes.
