NEWLY RENOVATED COTTAGE!!

Lovingly restored 1930's beach cottage. Huge porch, bonus outdoor shower, high ceilings, beadboard throughout. Small space but thoughtfully laid out. Wonderful location close to market, restaurants & clubs, yet in a quiet residential neighborhood! Jones Street is 3 blocks off the "main drag" (Butler Ave)...& just 3 blocks to the beach! The next street over (2nd) is primarily for bicycles!! Enjoy a quiet neighborhood, just steps from all the action!

The space
Tybee Island is a unique, relatively un-discovered beach town off the coast of Georgia with easy access to Savannah. It is not the "Cape"; it is not the "Hamptons"...not chic at all. Prepare for a laid back space with a Southern eccentric feel. Nobody is in a hurry here! Tybee Time is the standing rule! Maybe tomorrow! We hope it always stays the same, but enjoy it while you can & appreciate the uniqueness of this little island.

Sandy Shoes & Sea Glass Cottage are 2 attached one bedroom cottages on Tybee Island. Built in 1939, the structures are said to have been part of the old Fort Screven at the north end of the island. Fort Screven was an army base that was de-commissioned in the late 1940's & subsequently the buildings were sold off (early 50's ) & some moved to other parts of the island to serve as beach cottages. They can be rented separately or together!

They feature many historic details---beadboard throughout & high ceilings which give both an airy feel. They are small spaces but perfect for a beach vacation! Are you fans of the tiny house movement??!! These cottages from 80 years ago almost qualify !

The entire front of each cottage is shaded by private screened in porches. Furnished with wicker & a table for outdoor eating. Fans are also included for those hot summer evenings!

Guest access
Sandy Shoes is a stand alone apartment (small ---500 sq ft)..fully furnished; with a/c & heat; eclectically furnished with functioning kitchen (all utensils, pots/pans)...living room with tv (Roku, access to netflix, etc)..wifi. Off street parking provided for each unit. Complete new bathroom with tiled shower. Bedroom is small--almost like a treehouse with 6 windows. Although there are window coverings (blinds); there are no blackout curtains. If you need complete darkness to sleep, please bring an eye mask. Bonus Outdoor shower & bbq grill is shared with the other unit (Sea Glass Cottage)---or rent both for more space & enjoyment! That’s it. Your cottage is completely separate! Only grill & outdoor shower are shared!

Other things to note
These cottages are SMALL....there is a small single day bed in Sandy Shoes (cottage A). They are ideally suited for a couple. two couples may be pushing it. I'd really like to avoid the cram-in-as-many-people as possible scenario--for your own comfort & the safety of the cottage. Rent both cottages & enjoy more space! There is an additional linen fee of $25 if you require an additional set of sheets. This is the cost of having them laundered & ironed. Under no circumstances is someone allowed to 'crash' on the sofa.

Tybee Island, Georgia, United States

Fantastic neighborhood! One of the best parts of Tybee. Three of the best eating places are just blocks away (The Breakfast Club; The Tybee Social Club; & AJ's Dockside). Others (such as Sting Rays) are equally close--as is the pier & the shopping street of Tybrisa. The Island's only supermarket (IGA) is within easy walking distance for groceries & great deli sandwiches ( & wonderful fried chicken) for that trip to the beach. You won't need your car at all! Or better yet, rent a golf cart or bike (Fat tire bikes also within 2 blocks!) & cruise all over the island! Golf carts have resident stickers-- so no parking meters or fees!!!

My former life also includes 20 years in NYC in a banking/finance career. Love the big city & all it offers, but also appreciate living on a smaller scale in a place like Savannah.

After grad school, I bought a one way ticket & lived in Brasil for 2 years; working as an english teacher & living with brazilian students in a pension. Also traveled to Argentina, Paraguay, & Uruguay during that time...
