The local artist sell their goods in unique shops, you can take home Tybee Souvenirs to remember your vacation when you return home. Bring your Resort wear or buy it here, plenty of great shops to buy clothing and all your toys for every thing you would like to do on the Island. My husband and I are raising our family here in this community and view it as safe, beautiful, peaceful and exciting. It is vacation spot receiving close to 30,000 guests a year. There are six exciting parades a year and four holidays with fireworks. Theses events are put on by the city and get better and better each year. There is a rich history here, people who have grown up living here, some where gifted the family beach house, the barracks can be seen from the war. There are two lighthouses on Tybee. You cross over five bridges traveling over a few islands before arriving on Tybee. The sand is perfect and the beach has been voted in the top ten of best family beaches on the US. Every restaurant on Tybee is fantastic! We are located nearest to Sting Rays, who have the best buffalo Shrimp on the Island. I could go on and on telling you about the fishing on back fishers men's pier which is a few blocks away, and the sunsets and the sunrises to be seen here. This is a such great island to experience you'll just have to come visit. We love it so much we want others to come, that's why we will always be the cheapest price available and keep our place clean and neat and provide all we can to make your stay the best experience possible.

We only accept two names signed at check in as guests for the nights paid for. We do not allow pets. Our little cottage needs to keep a fresh clean feel, for all that visit. No smoking on the property. Not to worry a walk around the block will give you an opportunity to see some of the great beach houses in the neighborhood, there is a certain old charm to this peaceful beach Island, that is worth seeing. We have no extra cleaning fees, we just ask you take your trash to the big house trash cans upon leaving.
Elaine was very welcoming from the min we arrived! She told us all about hot spots around the island to go to along with giving us the once over of her very cute place! It is the perfect set up for a wonderful retreat to Tybee Island! Choose Elaine and you can't go wrong!
Cute place, and just a short walk to the beach, restaurants, shops, etc. We were only there for a long weekend, but it had everything we needed. Unfortunately, because of the weather, we were unable to use the bikes. But it was a nice perk knowing they were available. Overall a decent place to stay by the beach, and just a short drive into Savannah.
Excellent location and comfortable bed in a fun beach town. Space inside the cottage is limited and there is no outside views. However, it is perfect for someone that just needs a clean and comfortable place to sleep as we did.
Elaine welcomed us warmly accompanied by her exuberant 2 yr old. Her attention to detail in shabby chic style was wonderful. Loved the bathroom/shower area, soft teal colored towels were super absorbent and added to the decor perfectly. The site was quiet, with cardinals and many other birds serenading us. Our bed was super comfy! We followed Elaine's recommendations for dining out and were wowed by the superior food on the island.
You are a perfect host, Elaine. Thank you so much for helping us get our dose of island life by the Atlantic Ocean!
What a cute place! The cottage is super cozy, clean and convenient to everything on the island. We had a great time on the old cruisers, biking all over and exploring.
Unfortunately we never made it to our reservation at this cute little cottage, but Elaine was great about communicating and checking in pretty quickly. Hopefully I'll be heading down and staying here soon.
The Palm Creek Cottage was cozy and sweet; we loved our stay. It's in a great location that is walking distance to the beach, The Breakfast Club, and the Tybee Science Center. We couldn't have asked for more! Highly recommend.
