About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Coastal cottage, Wilmington Willow, is a 6 mile zip across the marsh to the atlantic ocean and small

beach resort of Tybee island. Within that short distance are many of the area's best known seafood

resturants and some of the most beautiful roadway through coastal georgia's marshland. WW offers the

quiet mid ground between sand and surf and the historic downtown of Savannah; reputed for beautiful gardens, good food, lively entertainment, and sophisticated art culture. WW sits on a private sandy road with the marsh in front and expansive in view across the inter coastal waterway of the wilmington river. Willow is of authentic low country style of living and located in a cluster of old cottages, which was once declared a simple fishing village. The original cottage was built in 1945 as a fish camp and has recently been restored to offer all amenities of a vacation home. This charming retreat offers gracious lifestyle for entertaining front porch style while overlooking the subtlety of the ebb and flow of Georgia's shoreline tides. The southern backside of wilmington island offers an unexpected secluded getaway from it all. This tip of the island is abundant in water birds, migratory, and the colorful locals. The tin roofed cottage is canopied by great live oaks, cluster palms, tall old pines. The winding island road is relaxing for long shady winter or summer walks with the delight of bird spotting. The simple tropical setting is just the spot needed away from the buzz of modern lifestyle. Just sit back and do nothing, grill out, or read a good book under the giant old magnolia covered with blossoms surrounded by shadowy drapes of

spanish moss. Sit sipping your favorite drink while watching the vibrant red southern sun setting. The area offers more day trips than there are days in the week. WW is owned and designed by an artist and offers the pleasure of being surrounded by the unique display of art. For sure, the collective visuals make for a vacation out of the ordinary. wilmington willow has a smaller guest cottage designed to resemble a yacht that can be reserved for larger families or separately for couples and guest.

Wanted to stay longer!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (including our Yorkie) stayed in the cottage for 3 nights. It was not long enough! It is unreal how quiet the neighborhood is! Feels like you are so far away from everything, but actually you are only a few minutes from restaurants, groceries and shopping. During our stay, we discovered two nests of baby birds on the front porch. We enjoyed peeking in on them when momma wasn't around. It was funny to watch the momma bird bringing food for the babies -- if we were anywhere around, she would stay close enough to watch us but would not come to the nest. As soon as we would go inside, she would fly to the nest and feed the babies. If you are seeking a quiet and relaxed getaway, this is it! Hope to visit there again!

Owner's Response: I have had so many happy travelers this summer. I appreciate all of your support and encouragement to continue hosting even when the storms are disruptive to power, the Mosquitos are biting and the palmetto bugs are flying. It is island living and my staff remains vigilant to providing the best home away from home experience to you all. Thanks for a wonderful summer season.

Savannah Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our two dogs went to Savannah for a sight seeing vacation. The house was perfect! It's a lot bigger and roomier than it appears to be from the outside. It's located in a quiet neighborhood which was great. Everything we wanted to see in the Savannah area was within a half hour drive, and then we were able to escape to our quiet little rental house in the evenings. We went to see the New Years fireworks on Tybee Island and even with the traffic, we were back at the house before 1am! The kitchen's got just about everything you need- even muffin pans and a waffle iron! We'd definitely recommend this house to our friends!

Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I really enjoyed our stay. The house is beautiful and the artwork is amazing. The kitchen had plenty of utensils, plates, cookware and appliances. It was very peaceful and relaxing. Wilmington Island is only 15 mins from Tybee and 15 mins from Savannah. It was perfect. Next year we are renting the the house and guest cottage for a family vacation.

Guest Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the guest cottage and it was plenty of space for a family of three. My teenaged son enjoyed his own space in the loft upstairs. We found it to be exactly as advertised. A fifteen minute drive to the beaches of Tybee and about the same to downtown Savannah. We enjoyed staying off Tybee on pleasant Wilmington Island. It made for a peaceful respite away from the beach crowd. Bev was great to work with, checking on us and making herself available if needed.

Owner's Response: I am proud of the guest cottage and believe in small spaces providing more than enough space. The mezzanine 2nd floor offers a fun getaway. I appreciate the compliments from a family of three enjoying the guest cottage experience.
