Cool restored 1939 beach cottage. Huge screened porch. 3 blocks to beach. Walk to restaurants, bars, & clubs, & supermarket! Island living at its best--fully updated with a cozy shabby-chic vibe.

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 "lost in time" 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, they 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!

Guest access
Sea Glass cottage is a stand alone apartment (small ---600 sq ft)..fully furnished; with a/c & heat; eclectically furnished with functioning kitchen (all utensils)...living room with tv (Roku, access to netflix, etc)..wifi. Bathroom has tub/shower combo. Off street parking provided for each unit. Outdoor shower & bbq grill is shared with the other unit (Sandy Shoes)---or rent both for more space & enjoyment! That’s it! Only grill & outdoor shower are shared! You have a full cottage to yourselves at a great price!!

Other things to note
The cottage is perfect for 2 adults, with a queen sized bed in the bedroom . There is a sofa in the living room but it is not a sleeper. Under no circumstances are guests allowed to "crash" on the sofa. If you have a larger party, why not rent both cottages!!??

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 (not to mention great 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 bike rentals-- also within 2 blocks!) & cruise all over the island! Golf carts have resident parking stickers, so no parking meters or fees!!
