vacation rental description

Kokomo is your state of mind in this secluded, peaceful, comfortable 1952 Tybee cottage located on Horsepen Creek. Enjoy your vacation while playing in the creek, fishing, crabbing, swimming or floating around. Add to your bird list while watching the entertaining varieties from the large screened porch or marvel at the dolphin and wildlife activity on the dock. Kokomo's large family friendly yard offers many opportunities for quiet contemplation, birding, fishing, swimming and water oriented activities.

This half acre property is hidden away on the backside of Tybee at the end of 10th Street. Kokomo takes advantage of cool ocean breezes and relaxing secluded tree covered hideaways. Your first sight of Kokomo begins to peel away the layers as you drive past the trickling fountain garden. Once you relax in the hot tub and garden after quiet meditation in the private labyrinth the vacation has truly begun. The large fire pit is especially designed for traditional oyster roasts and family get-togethers. The Tybee 'Redneck' Gazebo is a quiet place to watch all the activities or just another space for contemplation while you swing your cares away.

The cottage is easily accessible to all ages with ground floor entrances. All rooms have ceiling fans and cool tile floors. The newly added screened porch offers unbelievable sunsets, wildlife and bird viewing while watching the tide flow in and out. You will enjoy sitting in the gossip chair reading and watching the show or enjoying tea and conversations. The dining area offers a beautiful glass topped dining table that easily seats eight. The fully equipped kitchen features granite top counters, plenty of cabinet space, quirky tropical colors and inspiring views.

The living space is comfortably furnished with woven furniture from Indonesia, a 46' TV/HD/DVD player for watching movies or sport games. The 'Captain's Quarters' features a king bed with a private full bath, writing desk, reading chair, a view of the garden and sounds of the Atlantic Ocean. The 'Creekside Room' is furnished with a queen bed, reading chair and has a magnificent view of the marsh and creek, but you still hear the ocean. Our 'Ocean Room' brings the sound of the ocean in and has a set of bunk beds, a futon and 30' TV with a view of the garden and labyrinth.

Should you become ready for a change of pace, Kokomo is located just five quick blocks to the main public beach and within biking distance to anywhere on Tybee. We have many fabulous restaurants within walking or biking distance and we're located in the middle of the island. Just six blocks south to the strand, pier, and local shopping; four blocks north to the library, YMCA, Memorial Park/tennis & volleyball courts, and two blocks to the islands IGA grocery store. All the island churches are just in between. Savannah lies over the Lazaretto Creek Bridge just 20 minutes to the west and Hilton Head is beyond the next bridge to the north.

Best family trip

Review submitted: July 6, 2014   Date of arrival: June 23, 2014

Absolutely loved Kokomo cottage. Cecil and Elizabeth made me and my family feel so comfortable and welcome. The cottage is very comfortable with so many private spaces to relax and read. The creek is so much fun. We rented bikes and enjoyed exploring the Island and beach. Loved the personnel dolphin trip with Elizabeth and Zen. Looking foreward to visiting again hopefully in a month ending in R for the oysters.

Fun house, great owners.

Review submitted: July 6, 2014   Date of arrival: July 2, 2014

We enjoyed our time here. We had 4 adults, 2- 5year olds, 10yr old, and 1.5yr old for a 4 night stay here. We had a few minor bumps, but nothing major. The house has such a great yard and lay out for kids & older guests. The house is colorful & fun, with cute little trinkets all around. We did have to go through and "baby proof" things to ensure our lil one didn't break anything. The screened in porch & large yard was a life saver with kids. They created great play areas when not at beach. The yard is big enough that 1.5yr old can run around without getting close to dock or water. The inlet is a great swimming area for the kids. During low tide the sand bar makes for a perfect private "beach".
The house is only few blocks from the beach, which is totally walking distance. However if you have smaller ones this can be a bit difficult, trying to cross the roads, keep them safe, all while carrying your beach items. I recommend buying a beach cart. If you have a golf cart, bring it. Bikes were not practical for our family, with younger kids, and 2 elderly adults.
Our biggest problem was using the showers. The water pressure in the showers is not ideal. You cannot use both showers at one time, actually you cannot use any two water sources in the house at same time. If you try, the water only drips out of shower head, & the temperature is not consistent. One moment cold, the next very hot! Trying to wash off 4 kids after a beach trip was very stressful. During first use of shower, a giant wood roach crawled out of pipe. However, my husband has assured me this can happen with any older house, and does not reflect on the cleanliness of house.
The owners do live on a boat at the dock, but we never felt intruded on, and it never caused a problem for us. They are super nice & helpful. They do have a very large dog, Zen, a Great Dane, but he was EXTREMELY well behaved! Our family loves dogs, so he was a special treat for the kids. He didn't jump, lick, bark and was gentle with the kids. We even let him come into house with us so kids could enjoy him. The owners insisted it was not necessary, but Zen just laid around, & we enjoyed him.
Thank you for a great time at Tybee Island! This house is what you make it. You can sit back, relax, be out of crowds, and enjoy the privacy or you can be adventurous. It will work for most anybody.

Owners response: Jennifer, we enjoyed having your family stay at Kokomo Cottage. Thanks for taking such good care of the cottage. Also thanks for the information on the water. The city had a broken pipe and the pressure wasn't fixed correctly hence the poor pressure. We're addressing that problem. Look forward to your family staying with us again. Elizabeth
