Water and Sunset Views, Wrap Around Porches, 2nd House from the Beach!


Property Details

Updated: Aug 25, 2016
5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

This wonderful single family home is located just one house back from Tybee's South End Beach and has great views of the Back River, Little Tybee Island, and beautiful sunsets. Mere steps away from sandy toes and water. Or relax and enjoy the sea breezes from the spacious wrap around porches. The quiet residential neighborhood is tucked away from crowds, but is only a short stroll (via beach or street) to restaurants, shops, and the parade route (Tybee celebrates ''holidays'' in style... St. Patrick's Day, Christmas, Beach Bum, Pirate Fest...!).

The house is very bright and open with cheerful colors, lots of windows, and nice views of the water. Glass doors in just about every room lead to 10' deep porches. The wrap around porches host a hammock, dining table, ping pong table, and sitting areas. The fenced in yard has a swing set with a slide for little ones. The outdoor shower has hot & cold water and is conveniently located near the gate to the beach.

It is the perfect place for entertaining family and friends!

About the Owner

Although we moved into 'town' to be closer to schools and every day activity, we love escaping to our beach house whenever possible. It's always refreshing to drive the Tybee road toward our piece of paradise!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a wonderful weekend at the Anna Mia. We enjoyed the weekend very much as we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with our family and friends. Reconfirming our vows on the beach at sunset was perfect. This home provided a very comfortable spot to rest, reflect and refresh.

Family Friendly Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a wonderful week at Anna Mia Cottage. With several young children, this was a perfect spot! The Back River water was calm and great for little ones to play in. The beach was not at all crowded which provided plenty of room for them to roam and explore. We enjoyed using the kayak too. The weather was great all week, so we got to see many beautiful sunsets from the pier right behind the house.

The house itself is really nice. Very open layout with lots of space for cooking, eating, and hanging out together. The porches are wonderful too! Susan was very quick to respond and helpful throughout our stay. We loved the relaxed vibe of Tybee and had a great experience overall. Would definitely recommend Anna Mia Cottage and hope to return next summer!

Owner ROCKS!

  • 5 of 5

I reserved this lovely home for a family event because it is such a beautiful place to have a family get together. - even when I wasn't at all sure it would work for my elderly parents due to the stairs. When mom ended up having a trans aortic valve replacement in June, I became more concerned and contacted Susan. She was very lovely, returning my call immediately and talking to me frankly about the suitability for an elderly person who can't manage many steps. With a heavy heart I had to cancel my reservation - however, I would recommend this place (and this owner) to anyone looking for a great big house for family events!

Hidden Gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend the property to family/friends. There were 13 of us that stayed comfortably on the property. The house was very clean and included all of the amenities of home. The main level included a very open area (combined living room and kitchen) and large wrap around porch/balcony on both the main and upper level. The bedrooms were adequately sized with very comfortable mattresses on each bed. The master suite was exceptionally nice and included a jacuzzi. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots/pan, dishes, silverware, utensils, and any spice you could think of.

The booking process was seamless and we wouldn't hesitate to visit the property again.

The property was within a 15-20 minute drive from Savannah, GA. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the Tybee Island beach and restaurants, as well as, the close proximity to the historic Savannah area.

We look forward to enjoying another vacation in the Tybee Island/Savannah, GA area and will definitely be looking at the availability of this property!

Beautiful home!

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful and it slept all my girlfriends for our weekend getaway comfortably. Great location right near the pier and walking distance to restaurants and bars. Susan had beach chairs, a canoe, and a huge raft for people to use which was great.

Great Get Away

  • 4 of 5

The house was just as described in the photos - except there is not a gas grill on the back porch. It had everything we needed, except I would recommend an egg crate or something similar to add padding for the pull out couch in one of the upstairs bedrooms. I know all pull out couches are uncomfortable, but this is way beyond that. The owner was very pleasant to work with and responded timely. We really enjoyed our family getaway, would definitely return again in the future and recommend this home to others.

Owner's Response: Agreed, sofa beds are not typically considered dream beds, but it's the first time someone has said this one needs help. Good to know. I will look into a way to make the pull out comfortable. Here is the (lack of) grill story... Salt air rusted out the last one so I replaced it not too long ago. The very first guests must have used the new grill non stop. It was left a mess, a lot of grease overflowed onto the porch, and a chunk of wood was burned out of the decking. I always worried about the potential fire hazard and this made me realize providing a grill is not a very safe idea. The grill was removed and I took references of it out of the property description. I will double check to make sure it's not still listed online somewhere. All said, it is always nice to hear how guests enjoyed their stay, want to return, and would recommend my beach house to others!!

Happy Memories

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th time staying at Anna Mia Cottage. The house is beautiful inside and out and very clean and well maintained. The bedrooms are ample sized with enough space for all of us. We had a group of 8 adults and 1 child and room to spare. We especially enjoyed the porches overlooking the Back River. This is a favorite spot for all of us to sit and talk every night. The kitchen is well stocked with cups, dishes, pots, pans and utensils. The dining room is a nice place to enjoy family meals together. On the occasional rainy evening the Great Room worked well for all of us to sit and relax. Susan is very accommodating and if needed just a phone call away.

Anna Mia is just a short walk to the Tybee Island Pavilion and many restaurants and shops.

We are looking forward to coming back in 2017!

From the Owner

Personally I think this particular location on the island is the best... Somewhat undiscovered part of the beach in a quiet residential neighborhood, with commercial activity near enough to walk to (by beach or road). And it is a very convenient spot to nose your boat up to the beach, have friends hop aboard and take off to explore the surrounding waterways and nearby uninhabited islands... How great is that?!!

From the Owner

A few unique benefits of the property: walking out of the door and being on the beach in a few short steps, relaxing in a chair on the sand or strolling around the front beach to see the action, kayaking across the river to Little Tybee Island (a paradise in itself!), capturing the beautiful sunsets, being close enough to restaurants and shopping but far enough away from the crowds, watching the dolphins play... the list goes on!
