We rented this house for our 1st Girl Scout trip to the Savannah area. The girls absolutely loved their room and the rec room and the adults loved that they had their own space in their bedrooms. The house definitely needs more than 2 bathrooms, especially since one of the bathrooms is in a bedroom and not easily accessible at all times. Other than that it was a perfect beach house for our group! Thank you!
I am so happy the girls loved their SHIP Rec Room. Lots of fun for scouts.
I just wish you had told me about the floors. I would have sent your mer maids back right away. In their welcome email I do ask guests to call me upon their arrival in case there are cleaning issues and the cleaners will come right back.
I try so hard to get the floors really clean. They are dark oak floors. Being all ground level also tends to allow the dark sand to be brought into the house very easily. Even just bringing your items into the house can create dirty feet.
Also, please understand that this is busy, busy season and this is a large, large house with lots of beds so it does require plenty of cleaning time.
Insurance/bonding rules do not allow me to let guests drop off items early before the cleaners leave. They would be responsible for your items and just can't allow that. This also slows the cleaners down and they have a lot to do to get your house clean.
Yes, I wish we had another bath there. Codes will not allow it. I do have all of the amenities listed on all of my website as to only 2 full baths so I hope you were aware of the 2 baths. There is an outdoor shower in addition to inside showers and it is nice and private with curtains and hot water.
Thanks again for choosing Tybee and My Island Cottage.
Great location. just a few blocks from 2 great restaurants and the beach. House has some real character. Loved the ping pong table. Communication was very quick. We really enjoyed our stay.
Thank you, John. So you found Sting Rays and Social Club - or AJs at the Marina?
Did you know AJ's is also opening another restaurant on the strand - AJ's Beachside. Can't wait. Glad you enjoyed your stay. I always want to make my guests happy and provide fun things for them to do - in addition to the beach, pubs, restaurants, shops and all!
Please come back soon. You are now Tybee cousins! discounts for you on a future stay.
Thanks again for being great guests.

Lauren is a very gracious host, she upgraded us to the perfect home for our 15 member family for Thanksgiving. We each had a home base, with the large downstairs as a central location for eating, games and socializing. The triplex was spacious and clean and we had plenty of kitchen space for cooking our meals. It was great to have three ovens and three fridges! The kids loved Tybee Island and we were close enough to the beach that lots of sunrise pictures were taken. We all enjoyed ourselves and Lauren was always very quick to respond to messages and questions.

I am so very happy you enjoyed your stay and Tybee! I am glad I was able to upgrade you to Son Ray, 1415 2nd Avenue. I bet you all liked the screened porch, too?
I like that is is ground level and makes for easy carrying in and out of beach gear.
Please come back soon. You were wonderful guests.

Happy New Year1
The place was amazing! The neighborhood was great! We did find that there was no salt, pepper, or sugar there; but other than that we had such a great time and have already been talking about going back! Thank you so much for having us in your adorable house!
MY ISLAND COTTAGE
Thank you so much for the great review. Please do come back. I appreciate your note about the salt and pepper. I just try not to leave opened condiments for safety reasons. You just never know.
Hope this helps and thanks for being wonderful guests.

The pink cottage was perfect for a weekend with friends! We enjoyed using it as base camp for a wedding in Savannah. Having a lot of rooms/beds made it a flexible and easy choice since we were a large group (11 total!) of single friends and couples!
Emily was the best!! Loved having her and her family and friends.

I'm so glad the supplies came in handy.
I like the key idea, too. I used to get some many distress calls from guests with lost keys or lost keys and this does help especially with a large house.
Please come back soon. Tybee cousin discounts for you.

The house was absolutely perfect for the amount of ppl we had. It's within walking distance to the beach which was great considering the public parking on Tybee sucks. If you walk I would recommend a beach cart or wagon of some kind. The kids had a blast in the rec room. Lauren provided with the access code to get the key and we let ourselves in. Never even saw her (not saying that's a bad thing). She had everything set out for us before we arrived. The only disappointing thing was the lack of TV channels. The bigger kids would have liked having more channels to choose from. All in all the kids had a blast and thought the house was AWESOME.
Loved the house! It was a perfect getaway. Great for two families or a group a friends wanting to get away.
