Starfish and Sand Dollar Cottage
Tybee Island, GA
1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2
Tybee Island, GA
The Starfish and Sand Dollar Cottage is new to the rental market this season. Be among the first guests to enjoy this cute getaway, decorated in a fresh "beachy" style. The rental cottage is located on the ground floor and is all on one level. No steps to navigate! The upstairs unit is occupied by full-time residents. You will have a parking space in the driveway and you have a private side entrance and side yard area. The side yard offers a picnic table and a gas grill. It's beautifully landscaped and offers a peaceful spot to have a morning cup of coffee or to enjoy a quick burger in the evening after a long day at the beach. The living room is spacious and offers a flat screen TV, DVD player and wifi. The living room and dining area are combined in an open floor plan. The kitchen is fully equipped with the essentials for cooking on your vacation. We recommend eating out on vacation. There are enough local restaurants to enjoy a different spot each day. The bedroom offers a comfy, king size bed and a flat screen TV. There is also a breezy, screened porch off of the bedroom. It offers a bug-free spot to enjoy that morning coffee or a late night cocktail. This cottage does not offer a washer and dryer. There is a laundromat on Tybee if you must do some laundry on your vacation. We recommend packing enough shorts, swimsuits, and flip-flops to last and worrying about laundry when you get home! Starfish and Sand Dollar Cottage is located in a quiet residential area of the island. It is 5 blocks to the beach, but is really an easy walk. Our blocks aren't huge city blocks. This is a great location for those that want to enjoy all that Tybee Island and Savannah has to offer and then come home to relax away from the hustle and bustle of a beach town. Come on down and start enjoying some Tybee Time!
The cottage is the ground floor portion of the home. The upstairs apartment is occupied by full-time residents.

Quaint and Quiet

Brandon E. from Poplar Bluff, MO recommends this vacation rental.
Cottage was very nice and located in a quiet neighborhood. It was well equipped with cooking supplies and had everything we needed. The screened in porch was great for early morning coffee. The manager was great and took care of anything or any changes that came up. We would most definitely stay in this cottage again.

Bigger than Expected
Stayed 3 days in July, 2017
Jennifer M. from Jefferson, GA recommends this vacation rental.
We booked this cottage a week before arriving in July so there wasn't much to choose from. We were so pleasantly surprised with the size of this property. Not sure why they only allow 2 people as kids could easily sleep on the futon. It is very well appointed. The only issues we had were that the blender leaked and the grill which appeared to be a gas grill had charcoal in it and the metal grills were flaking rust and metal. We made do and all was fine. The AC was nice and cold! We brought our bikes and enjoyed our impromptu visit to Tybee. I recommend this cottage.
Manager Responded on 07/27/2017
J~ Thanks for taking the time to review your stay at Starfish and Sand Dollar Cottage. We do occasionally have guests with a small child... the futon doesn't fold out so we don't advertise it for additional people. We will definitely get the blender replaced. That is a necessity on a beach vacation! And we will have the grill looked at... if it needs replacing we will have that taken care of. We do hope you will have a chance for more Tybee Time and that you will choose this little cottage when you return. ~TTVR

My husband and I had not been to Tybee Island prior to this trip and we found the island and the rental to be wonderful in all respects! The kitchen has everything you need and the apartment is very spacious and clean. We wished we could have stayed longer.

Really Nice Place

This was a nice bright, very clean rental that is nicely decorated and has about every amenity you would want. Quiet area with no traffic. Large rooms gave a feeling of spaciousness - very pleasant "beachy" feeling.

Terrific Time in Tybee
Stayed 5 days in April, 2017
A guest from Colborne, ON recommends this vacation rental.
We both found Starfish and Sand Dollar to be perfectly comfortable, roomy, convenient - everything we could have wished for. We could cook the odd meal (all utensils,pots, etc. included), we could relax, and the bed was very comfortable. We didn't feel like we were cramped. It as easy to go to restaurants, grocery shopping and most of all, the beach. On top of that, we had a neat chicken to look out upon in the back yard. Not our yard, but the owner's yard, so we could peek but not touch. I would come back again to Starfish in a heart-beat!!
Manager Responded on 05/01/2017
D~ Sounds like you had an awesome stay at Starfish and Sand Dollar Cottage! And I'm glad the neighbor's chickens were entertaining. We hope that you will be a repeat guest if you ever come to Tybee Island again. ~TTVR

A guest from villa rica, GA recommends this vacation rental.
This place was comfortable and had a well stocked kitchen with all the different types of cookware needed as we cooked all 3 nights. My only minor complaint was that the Netflix option on the tv did not work because the box needs to be updated for the app to work. We purchased a hdmi cord and ran our own Netflix account through our laptop but it would have been nice if could have just clicked the app on the tv. Also minor was the blender leaks so no blended drinks. But like I said a great place and the resident upstairs is friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed being close enough to the market to walk. Comfortable bed and great linens. Nice and clean.
Manager Responded on 04/08/2017
L~ Thanks for the review! Good to know about the Netflix... we haven't gotten that comment before. We will see about getting an updated box. And we can definitely get a new blender. Frozen drinks on vacation is a must! We hope you enjoyed all Tybee has to offer and that you will come back for some more Tybee Time in the near future. ~TTVR
Weekend on Tybee Island
Stayed 3 days in March, 2017
A guest from Portsmouth, RI recommends this vacation rental.
My wife and I enjoyed our weekend at Starfish and Sand Dollar Cottage on Tybee Island. We found the Starfish and Sand Dollar Cottage to be clean, comfortable, well-equipped and well-located for an active weekend of beach walking, biking, visiting Savannah and dining out. We enjoyed chatting with the owners who live upstairs in this building and found the folks who manage this property to be considerate and helpful.
Manager Responded on 03/19/2017
J~ Thanks for the review! We love 5's but I guess we can't be perfect. Thanks for staying with us and please come back to Starfish & Sand Dollar Cottage for some more Tybee Time! ~TTVR

The Hermine Trip
Stayed 3 days in September, 2016
A guest from Suwanee, GA recommends this vacation rental.
The cottage was clean and neat. Great location, as we bring bikes and ride on the island. Bed slept wonderfully. Only downside was a musty smell when we arrived, but remedied with Tybee Fresh Aroma Mist from Kelly & Co.
Manager Responded on 09/23/2016
E~ We are certainly glad you enjoyed your stay at Starfish and Sand Dollar Cottage. Sorry that the rainy weather we experienced with Hurricane Hermine caused a musty smell... do you always carry your Tybee mist? :) Now that you have discovered us, we hope that you will take time for a future visit! ~TTVR

Daryl S. from Simpsonville, SC recommends this vacation rental.
This is a very nice and clean cottage. We were gone most of the days and would be there at night time. The area is nice. We rented bicycles for the week and was able to get wherever we needed fast. Best value on Tybee Beach in my opinion.
Manager Responded on 08/17/2016
D~ Great! Sounds like you enjoyed your stay at Starfish and Sand Dollar Cottage. We hope you will be able to come back for more Tybee Time soon! ~TTVR

David B. from Wheeling, WV recommends this vacation rental.
Had a great time at this property. Clean as could be upon arrival. No problems checking in or out. No need to interact with property manager. Within walking distance to strip and beach. To nit pick a bit,wife was surprised that there was no hair dryer. (She bought one and left it for the next guest.) We flew to Savannah,which limited what we could bring, so a few cheep beach chairs would have been nice.(We bought two and left them as well for the next guests.)The bed was comfortable and the linen very nice. This property is great for a couple. We would highly recommend and rent again if the opportunity arises.<br/>
Manager Responded on 08/02/2016
D~ Thank you for taking the time to review Starfish and Sand Dollar Cottage. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and we hope you get that opportunity to visit Tybee Island again! I am sorry about the hair dryer... that is totally an oversight of mine. The owners look to us for suggestions on needed items and I just overlooked the hair dryer for some reason on this one. We appreciate you leaving one for the next guests, but I would have been more than happy to bring you one. ~TTVR
Wonderful Beach Cottage
Stayed 6 days in June, 2016
Lauren H. from Frederick, MD recommends this vacation rental.
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay in Tybee Island. The cottage was lovely - clean and well maintained and just a short walk to the beach. The rental company made check-in and check-out very easy and Melba was responsive to all of our questions/needs. We enjoyed the local Tybee Island restaurants and activities most nights, but were also close enough to venture into Savannah. The cottage's kitchen and grill were great for meal prep and for the nights we decided to stay in and cook. We would absolutely recommend this property to others and look forward to returning in the future!
Manager Responded on 07/13/2016
L~ Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review! We would love to have you back as a repeat guest in the Starfish and Sand Dollar Cottage just as soon as you can schedule more Tybee Time! ~TTVR

Malerie G. from Weaverville, NC recommends this vacation rental.
We really enjoyed our short stay at Starfish and Sand Dollar Cottage. The home was exceptionally clean and even included two flat screen televisions with cable! It is about five blocks from the beach, which was wonderful as it was quiet and allowed us to see more of the residential area. In the backyard, we saw small lizards and several frogs! It was just right and so wonderful.
Manager Responded on 05/18/2016
M~ Awesome! Since you are the first guests to stay at the cottage, we are glad you enjoyed your stay! Come back when you can stay longer! ~TTVR
