Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Newly renovated cottage located on Talahi Island, half way between Historic Savannah and beautiful Tybee Island. Enjoy the view of the Bull River and cargo ships passing in the Savannah River from your private screened porch. Enjoy a nice breeze from the rocking chairs! Just 5 minutes away from restaurants and shops, Fort Pulaski National Park and scenic walking/biking trails.
Please note, the docks pictured belong to our neighbors - There is no dock or direct river access.

The space
It is very quiet and peaceful on Talahi. Located 10 minutes from Downtown Savannah, or Tybee Island, there are great places to explore for the historian, foodie or athlete. The sunsets and views of the rivers and marsh are gorgeous.

We are very sensitive about Covid-19 and clean/ disinfect after every guest party. ALL linens, including the duvet cover, are washed after EVERY stay. We are fully vaccinated.

Absolutely no smoking, indoors or out. Non-negotiable.

This is a 1 BDR, 1 BA cottage (650 sq feet) - perfect for a couple or one with 1-2 small kiddos. It is next to our house, and while you will have your privacy, we are here if you need anything. The dock you see from the cottage (with the green roof) is our neighbors- there is no dock or direct water access. The water views in the posted pictures were taken from the cottage porch. There is a public accessible dock at the Bull River Marina, approximately 2 miles away.

The gated area marked PRIVATE is our personal yard, and we have big dogs, so please respect the privacy signs.

I have removed wi-fi as an amenity, because it is spotty in the bedroom and Comcast can’t seem to figure it out. There are instructions to access Wi-Fi from the living room, but please remember this is not an advertised or promised amenity.

Businesses in Savannah are open, and the city jus reinstated mask mandates for city buildings, public transportation - however, it is the choice of the business owner, so I’d have one available just in case. As some restaurants and tours are running at lower capacity, we recommend making reservations early.

Enjoy your stay!

Where you’ll be

Savannah, Georgia, United States

There is a community park within walking distance with swings and a basketball court. Davis Produce is located at Quarterman & Hwy 80 - don't miss out on their Boiled Peanuts! Current, our favorite restaurant, is about 1.5 miles away and is family friendly. The Friendship Café is a go-to for coffee and the breakfast is wonderful.

We love the Low Country and whether it’s beach combing, fishing, or hunting for sharks teeth, we love being on the water! We’re an active gang, outdoors as much as possible in the sunshine.
