Cottage in the Sky
Tybee Island, GA
2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6
Tybee Island, GA
Cottage in the Sky is the perfect getaway location! Nestled atop a historic sand dune, it offers views of the bay area and access to the north beach just a short walk away. If you are looking for a more relaxing Tybee vacation, the north end of the island may be just what you are looking for. This cottage is designed with vacation comfort in mind. It would be a perfect setup for 2 couples or a family with older children. Or a 'girls getaway'... perfect! The first floor is where you will find the living room, kitchen, dining area, bedroom and full bathroom. The bedroom on this level has a queen bed and a flat screen TV. There is also a flat screen in the living room. The kitchen comes with everything you will need to prepare a quick bite to eat before heading out for the day. And the dining table seats 6. You could opt to cook all of your meals here, but we recommend sampling the local cuisine that the island has to offer. You are on vacation, after all! The first level also offers plenty of outdoor deck space to enjoy. The second level is where you will find the sun room. This room will definitely be a gathering spot after the days adventures. There is a TV in the sun room. However, you will just want to kick back, relax and enjoy the view! The 2nd bedroom has a full size bed and flat screen TV. The 2nd full bath is on this level. The reading nook is a great place for a little quite time. And just when you thought Cottage in the Sky couldn't offer any more... The 2nd level guests will enjoy a personal refreshment area with a sink, mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. It will come in handy for a cup of coffee before the downstairs guests wake up or for that late night snack after the rest of the house is asleep! The large backyard with its brick pavers is a perfect place to spend the evening grilling and enjoying cocktails. Plenty of tables and seating and a charcoal grill. You will want to take advantage of the ocean breezes and tranquility in this backyard oasis! A vacation at Cottage in the Sky will be just what the doctor ordered! You will be planning your return visit before you leave!

Perfect Tybee vacation!!

Nancy K. from Lancaster, SC recommends this vacation rental.
This charming bungalow was perfect for me, my daughter in law and my 3 granddaughters. The floor plan allowed for both together time and private time. The backyard is absolutely amazing. The beach was a short pleasant walk. Perfect!!!

Doug I. from Norcross, GA recommends this vacation rental.
We had a terrific time in this property. My Son was getting married and we needed room for several families. We actually rented this house and a couple of units across the street. It was perfect! The upper glass porch area is a beautiful place to sit and relax. Beach access seems a little restricted at this end of the island but we were able to make it work. Would definitely go back!

Sherrill W. from St Louis, MO recommends this vacation rental.
The Cottage in the Sky provided a wonderful place to call home for the week. We enjoyed the short walk to beach each day as we spent countless hours relaxing in the calm water, watching the dolphins and ships, and searching for the perfect shells. A vacation to remember!

S~ We are glad your stay at Cottage in the Sky was memorable. There is nothing like a relaxing vacation at the beach to recharge the batteries! Hope you found some nice shell souvenirs! ~TTVR

A guest from Mount Juliet, TN recommends this vacation rental.
This was our first visit to Tybee Island and we could not have been any luckier to pick such an awesome cottage. This cottage was so much bigger then we expected with the extra space from the nice sun room. It was well stocked with anything you might possibly need as if you were in your own home. We loved outside on the patio and deck areas with such a beautiful landscape. Overall we were more then pleased with this cottage exceeding my expectations.

A guest from Seneca, SC recommends this vacation rental.
This adorable house FAR exceeded our expectations! Immaculate and comfortable, my family of six were able to relax and find our own niches when we needed a little space from one another. :) We loved watching the ships depart while relaxing on the porch and were constantly delighted by the dolphins swimming just off the shore. We could not have been happier!!!
Manager Responded on 07/11/2017
S~ Wow... we love it when we FAR exceed expectations! It's not hard to do with this cottage though. The owner's pride of ownership shines through. And the views are great, too! We can see another visit to Tybee Island in your future. ~TTVR

david m. from shreveport, LA recommends this vacation rental.
This cottage lives up to its name. This was my second time staying in this gorgeous cottage. Its in immaculate shape both inside/outside. What I loved the most is from the second floor glassed in sunroom you can watch the cargo ship sail by early in the morning on their way into Savannah's harbor. The cottage is in a very quiet area. Also there's a pathway in the backyard that allows you to walk into a little local retailers shopping center, which includes Hucapoos a local restaurant/bar so if you just want to have a lazy day without driving on the island this little shopping area is the perfect answer. I will always book this cottage when I vacation on the island. The only problems I had with the property is I wish I could of brought my 3 pound teacup yorkie and the front door occasionally you have a hard time locking the deadbolt on the door.

Perfect cottage, perfect location

Lesley C. from Madison, NY recommends this vacation rental.
This place is a gem! It is located on the north side of the island, which is nice and quiet--perfect for a low-key getaway. Tybean coffee house, Huc a Poos restaurant/bar, and a bunch of cute shops (and a bike rental place) are a stone's throw away, but not visible from the cottage (you just walk out through the back yard, down Solomon Avenue for less than half a block, and there you are!). The location is a perfect blend of convenience and privacy. The cottage was SPOTLESS, and had everything you could possibly need or want, with amazing attention to detail--there are even little signs posted around to tell you where the light switches are, and other helpful tips for your convenience. It's also a great size, with a kitchenette upstairs, which we didn't need but which would be wonderful for two couples or a family. There are two decks, and a beautiful sun room for looking out at the river. An added surprise--the back yard is HUGE and gorgeous, a perfect place for relaxing and enjoying the birds. Finally, Melba and the staff at Tybee Time Vacation Rentals were super responsive, prompt and friendly--the epitome of Southern hospitality. We couldn't have asked for more. Will definitely be back as soon as possible!!!

A Great Stay

Mark T. from Hudsonville, MI recommends this vacation rental.
We really loved our experience at Cottage in the Sky. All the amenities were provided, even spices and cooking supplies provided by other vacationers. We made use of the supplied blender to make margaritas, which we enjoyed on the patio. We had friends staying close by, and really enjoyed the outside spaces to grill and entertain. The close proximity to Huc-A-Poos was a huge plus as well!<br/><br/>The only drawbacks were the fact we couldn't open the windows upstairs to let fresh air in and we also could not access the upper/third level room, which was padlocked shut. I was looking forward to watching the dolphins from that room with my kids, (since I've read other vacationers were able to so), so it was a disappointment to find it locked up when we arrived.<br/><br/>But this was a minor issue at the end of the day, since we loved the space and layout of the cottage. We need to come back again, since we liked the place so much we barely ever ventured out to Savannah!
Manager Responded on 04/25/2017
M~ Glad that you enjoyed Cottage in the Sky. The sunroom windows don't open for safety reasons and the lookout at the top of the home is never available to guests and never has been, again for safety reasons due to the steep access. The prior guests who commented about watching the dolphins were doing so from the sunroom. We do hope that you come back for a repeat visit and some more Tybee Time! ~TTVR
Close to Savannah River Beach

A guest from Nashville, TN does not recommend this vacation rental.
Our family of four enjoyed our stay at Cottage in the Sky. The house is half a block from public beach access to the Savannah River, and from that beach you can walk to the North Beach. The kitchen was well-equipped, the house was clean and well-maintained, and the outside areas were great.<br/><br/>The queen bed in the downstairs bedroom was uncomfortable for my husband and me. Our two sons were comfortable in the upstairs bedroom and the pull-out sofa in the upstairs sunroom; they liked having their own space upstairs.<br/><br/>Although I enjoyed the location and overall quality of this house, my husband and I did not sleep well on the queen bed and cannot recommend the house to a friend.
Manager Responded on 04/10/2017
L~ Sorry that the bed was not to your liking. As everyone has different preferences of mattress size and firmness, it is nearly impossible to please everyone. We hope that you enjoyed your stay otherwise and that your family had a good time on Tybee Island. ~TTVR

A guest from Weston, WI recommends this vacation rental.
This house has everything plus more! It was spotless. The neighborhood is beautiful and quite. The kitchen is stocked with every type of cooking/eating utensil you can think of. The property management company was easy to work with and always timely if we had questions! It isn't on the beach but access is very close. You can watch the ships passing in the river from the deck and sun room. Gerald's Pig and Shrimp and Fannies Restaurants were very good. We will stay again! Hopefully soon!

Had a great stay on Tybee. The property was in great shape, very, very clean. Had everything we needed, except for food of course. Had several nice areas to sit and relax. Grill in the back with big sitting area. The upstairs/downstairs was really two separate areas which was perfect for our two sons and ourselves. I would rent this place again in a heartbeat.

Our stay at the property was fantastic! We loved the outstanding beauty of the artwork, the decor and the windows upstairs to view the ships coming and going. The cottage was well stocked with amenities that was truly a surprise. The pictures cannot describe how pleasant this place is. Beautiful back yard, close access to the riverside to watch dolphins and collect shells. Quick trip down the road to get to South Tybee beach. Ate at Sundae Cafe, best tuna and shrimp! Part of me doesn't want to build this place up too much, I secretly always want it to be available for me!:) Melba-you are fantastic and we will definitely return!

The Pefect Tybee Vacation

Cynthia (Cindy) U. from Salem, VA recommends this vacation rental.
We came "home" to Cottage in Sky for the second time after finding this gem last year. We hadn't ever been able to find a small house for our little family but we did with Cottage in the Sky. Perfect location! Perfect layout! Perfect, private lot! The location to the river is amazing. (The only thing that could make it more perfect would be if it was riverfront) We thought we might miss being on the ocean but once you experience the beach on the river, You'll never think about the oceanfront again. Dolphins swimming all day and the amazing cargo ships passing by add to the peaceful and relaxing mood.<br/>Everything you need is in this house. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the pots and pans, casserole dishes, dinnerware...anything you might need to prepare a meal. The beds are super comfortable. The second floor could accommodate a second family/couple with the bedroom, sun-room and mini-kitchen. The full size washer and dryer allow you to keep your laundry done in a flash while preparing dinner or relaxing watching movies. We'll most certainly be back! Hope to share time here with friends and family in the years to come. Thanks so much for another great experience! Can't wait to come home to Cottage in the Sky again!

Patricia W. from Lawrenceville, GA recommends this vacation rental.
This house was much more beautiful than the pictures captured. Upstairs felt like it's own apartment complete with full bathroom, kitchen, sunroom with panoramic views and outdoor patio. Downstairs was very inviting also and the entire house was extremely clean. The quiet north beach was a short walk down the street. We paid for a dolphin tour by boat and realized the whole boat ride was along the beach we were staying at, so we went back to the beach afterward and watched all of the dolphins playing at sunset. Overall, our stay was perfect, Melba was amazing to work with and we will definitely be back!

P~ Wow... what a rave review! Thanks so much for taking the time to write it. Cottage in the Sky is a fabulous cottage on the north beach.

Mandi R. from Atlanta, Georgia recommends this vacation rental.
I love Cottage in the Sky - I have stayed there several times. The nearest beach access is the north beach. It is a very short walk and great for walking and shelling The southern beach which is best for swimming is minutes away by bicycle or car. A path in the backyard leads to quaint shops across the dirt lane. Last time I went with my BFFs from high school was a much needed time with girlfriends. We had a wonderful vacation. This property is SUPER CLEAN and well maintained â everything works !!! The kitchen had everything we needed and there was even a very nice collection of cookbooks. I really appreciated that there was tin foil, plastic wrap, food storage bags, coffee filters and more stuff like that. The decor is cheerful yet relaxing and comfortable. The beds are very comfortable too - no back ache when I got home. There are several sitting areas including a wonderful sunroom that has a great view and also there a small deck off the sunroom- we sat there for morning coffee and a glass of wine before dinner.. There is plenty of room for everyone to spread out and have privacy. Aside from the kitchen, which is on the main floor, there is an area upstairs with a sink, microwave, toaster, and an under counter frig. Don't worry you'll find coffee cups, spoons, plates, forks, wine glasses etc. on both floors and they think of everything. Each morning we had coffee going on both floors. That was a really nice touch for us and no one had to wait for coffee. There is also a large deck on the front of the house with a table and plenty of chairs. The backyard is huge. The lot is wooded and very relaxing with a very large brick type of patio and a grill. There are tables and chairs for enjoying nature and for eating outside if you wish. This house really feels like a home â it has washer/ dryer/ iron/ ironing board. I love to visit Tybee and this house is PERFECT and did I mention VERY CLEAN. I will stay here the next time I visit Tybee. Thank you for sharing your sweet home with us.
Absolutely lovely beach house

Beth Q. from Huntsville, Alabama recommends this vacation rental.
We have stayed at Cottage in the Sky several times. It is an absolutely lovely property and you can tell that the owners have put a lot of thought into making it comfortable, practical and beautiful. It has LOTS of amenities you don't often see in a beach rental- from little things like coffee filters and spices in the kitchen, to extra towels, blankets and throws, books, etc. And, as an extra added bonus, the house is IMMACULATE. Not just clean, but Immaculate. No dirt, no unpleasant smells, and nothing that needs fixing. We really enjoy the privacy afforded by the yard- it's on a very deep lot, and you can sit out back on the patio and enjoy the evening without feeling like your neighbors are on top of you. The upstairs "florida room" , which is totally glass across the front, is a nice bonus too. You can see to the water across the street and watch the ships as they head up the Savannah river. Sometimes you can see dolphins too. The little side porch upstairs under the trees is a great place for morning coffee. The house is a few minutes drive from North Beach, which is nice for walking or shelling and less than 10 minutes to the South Beach, for swimming. The house is big enough to house 6 easily and the way it's split between two floors makes it work for 2 families as well. It's really a great property and we can't wait to go back.
