Indulge in joyous family moments and cherished memories at "As Time Goes By," a delightful haven boasting wide porches, airy rooms, a spacious heated saltwater pool, and easy access to the beach! This historic gem was named for its original 1920 Tybee Strand Cottage status, preserving its timeless charm while offering modern comforts for an unforgettable stay.

Step inside and immerse yourself in the rich history and character of this home, with hardwood floors, beadboard walls, and tall 14' ceilings adorned with transom windows, welcoming in the island's refreshing breeze. The claw foot bathtub and the wide curving porch on three sides exude a sense of nostalgia, inviting you to relax and unwind in style.

Designed by acclaimed preservationist Jane Coslick, "As Time Goes By" reflects her artistic touch in every detail, from the inviting porch bed perfect for napping, to the cleverly designed built-in bunk room featuring individual reading lights for each bunk. The beautifully curated furnishings exude comfort and beachy charm, showcasing soothing white tones paired with pops of beachy turquoise, pink, orange, and citron through original artwork, vintage furniture finds, and cool lighting from beloved makers such as Stray Dogs Designs and Ro Sham Beaux.

Upon entering, you'll find four steps leading to the main level, where an updated kitchen with island seating for four, a light-filled dining room with space for up to twelve, a laundry area, and a welcoming living room with a large TV. The primary bedroom is also located on this floor, fitted with a king bed and beautiful ensuite full bath. Down the hall, guests will find a guest bedroom with two queen beds and another renovated full bathroom.

Upstairs, a third bedroom with a queen bed features an adjoining reading nook, while the bunk room boasts four twin beds and a shared full bath. The upstairs den beckons with a TV and game table, offering a peek of an ocean view to savor.

The large wraparound porch welcomes you to read, visit, or dine al fresco, complete with a ping pong table for added fun. The large heated saltwater pool becomes the heart of your outdoor experiences, surrounded by a spacious deck with a dining table and an outdoor shower.

Located just one house away from the beach, you can easily access the sandy shores via a private walkway with steps, or opt for the public 13th Street walkover, just a short stroll or drive away.

"As Time Goes By" was featured by House of Turquoise and showcased on the Tybee Island Tour of Homes in 2019, epitomizing the ideal blend of historic allure and modern comforts for an enchanting Tybee Island retreat.

Recent Reviews About This Property

"We enjoyed this home so much. The pool was great and we loved that it was heated for our fall trip. We could have spent all day on the relaxing porch. There are great areas to sit and enjoy coffee or play games. We love that they had beach chairs and a wagon to bring it all to the beach. The walk to the beach was easy. The home is beautifully decorated and spacious."

Deann H. from Sheboygan, 11/21/2023

"This cottage was perfect for our family little getaway! So cute and loved the decor! Very well spaced out and plenty (a little extra) room for our family of 4. Super clean and felt like home.
The pool was great, and there were so many things provided (ie. towels, toys, wagons, chairs). It was perfect.
The walk to the beach was less then a 5 minute walk and super easy.
In the past, we have always stayed closer to the river side of Tybee, but loved this location. The cottage was tucked away off the main road, but yet so convenient.
Thank you so much for having us and we would LOVE to stay again!"

Kristin P. from Johnson City, 08/28/2023

"Our family had an amazing experience here. This historical house has terrific hangout areas, plenty of space in the bedrooms, and updated with modern necessities. Having a private pool is a huge perk.

A couple of things to be aware of, but not deal breakers:
-The Walk to the beach is through the yard of the property adjacent on the beach side. Most of the walk is in the dunes which can present a challenge for with a cart, small children, or elderly. Walking around on 13th street is an easy alternative.
-Not all bedroom doors close flush or lock as this is an old house. Did not hinder us but good to know."

Terry E. from Indianland, 06/20/2023

"Did I have to say that our time at "As Time Goes By" was fantastic. We had a great time and the location of this cottage was perfect. Close to everything.
Everything was beautiful inside and out of the home. Everything you could possibly need was there. The pool was clean and so refreshing and the closeness of the beach was so nice. I definitely recommend this rental!"

Heather M. from Savannah , 08/08/2022

Heather, So glad you enjoyed the home and your Tybee time. It seems we may have disappointed you with our services and please let us know on your return how we can better service you. THanks so much and hope to see you again soon, Denise and the TC Team

"We had a great time! Our entire family of ten including grandchildren , ages 12-17 enjoyed the large home plus the pool and close proximity to the beach. The home was clean and well-furnished.
We were very close to a grocery store and the downtown area with may restaurants. It was a great experience!"

Ronald C. from Woodstock, 07/04/2022

HI Ronald, So glad you and your grandchildren enjoyed our "As Time Goes By" because time we have with our grandchildren can go by fast and so happy we could be part of you making memories with them. Hopefully we will see you back soon for more great Tybee time and experiences. Denise and the TC Team

"From the manager's graciousness in allowing us to postpone our original stay during the pandemic to the wonderful cottage and its location, we were thrilled with our vacation at As Time Goes By. Spacious, comfortable and family-friendly rooms and porches, a nice pool just steps from the front door, and a convenient walk to the beach or to any of the many eateries and shops on the island--it was a glorious stay our family had on Tybee this year!"

Mary J. from Roswell, 04/11/2022

"This house is among the top of the best of the best in a long history of vacation rentals!! It offers a perfect combination of historical character and modern sensibility. We could not have been more pleased with this home or its manager, Jim. Everything was perfect -- the pool, the kitchen supplies, the linens and towels, the furnishings, the porch, and the most scenic walk to the beach I have ever experienced. As Time Goes By is truly that rare gem of a vacation home that you always hope to find. Thank you so much for sharing it with us!"

Stacy M. from Richmond, 08/02/2021

"My family had the BEST time at "As Time Goes By!" It is the perfect beach house with A TON of room which worked out nicely for having 12 people in the house. It is beautiful inside and so uniquely decorated. The grounds are well maintained and the pool was fantastic! Beach access was super easy and with little kids this worked out so well. We can't wait to come back!!"

from Mason, 07/26/2021

"We really enjoyed our stay at this home. The home with beautifully decorated with lovely furniture and bedding. I was also impressed with the kitchenwares - they had everything needed for a family that stays put and cooks all meals. The property manager, Jim, is a wonderful man, so kind to answer all of my questions prior to our rental and stay. The pool was a huge benefit, since having an infant with us. We also loved the location and especially the bike trail roads. Walking distance to everything. "

from Mount Pleasant, 07/14/2021

"We spent a week in this gorgeous home - so much well thought out space, tons of character, and very well equipped. I personally spent lots of time on the wonderful screened in porch. The kids played tons of ping pong. Outdoor area is lovely too, and we were really close to the beach - no big deal if you forgot something. Easily walkable to restaurants and stores.
Also want to mention that there was a problem with the AC downstairs one evening- I called Jim and literally it was fixed within 3 hours.
Would definitely return. "

Jennifer A. from Philadelphia, 06/26/2021

"Everything about the house was awesome!!!"

"We had the best time and the house was amazing! Pictures do not do it justice. Pool was amazing. We will definitely be back! "

from ATLANTA, 05/11/2021

"This is one of the best houses I have ever stayed in. This is one of those houses that actually looks better than the pictures. It's in the perfect location -- close to the beach, shops, and restaurants. You have everything you need at the house, which is spotless. Jim was so wonderful to work with and answered all of my questions and requests. I could not recommend this beautiful house highly enough! I can't wait to come back!"

Jessica T. from Wexford, 05/04/2021

Incredible House

"I never leave reviews, but I had to make an exception to recommend this house to anyone who is vacationing in Tybee. This house is incredible and has everything you could ask for. It is even more beautiful in person than the pictures -- probably the most stunning house I've ever stayed in. The location is perfect as it's close to the beach, restaurants, and shops. The pool is gorgeous and great if you want a break from the beach. I also had all of my questions answered and addressed quickly. I cannot recommend this house enough. "

Jessica T. from Pittsburgh, 05/03/2021

"This Tybee cottage is absolute perfection...the photos do not do it justice. The property is immaculate and well maintained. I felt honored to have my Family stay in this Jane Coslick designed home, and Jim at Tybee Cottages was wonderful in helping me plan this vacation. "

Beverly W. from Canfield, 11/02/2020

"We live in Savannah and frequently rent a cottage at Tybee. My family told me this was the best. The cottage is just beautiful. If you want a real Tybee experience this is your place. We had eight adults plus friends visiting during the day and had plenty of room. Well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Going to the beach and having a pool to come back to cool off, what could be better. Very close to shopping, bars, and restaurants all within walking distance, in addition the grocery store was just around the corner. With all of this, and you still feel secluded and peaceful. I thought being one house away from the beach was going to bother me. It didn’t! We still had a very nice breeze around the pool. Love this cottage, we all want to go back.

Wonder Tybee Retreat

"This place has everything... room, beautifully renovated bathrooms, proximity to the beach, heated POOL, beautiful screened wrap around porch, walking distance to everything you need and great parking for cars. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a luxury Tybee retreat. "

Steven S. from Atlanta, 03/03/2020

The Perfect Beach Cottage!

"We stayed at As Time Goes By last week and had a wonderful time! This is an amazing house! The decor is perfect for a beach cottage. It's very spacious but so cozy at the same time. I really enjoyed relaxing and reading on the wrap around porch. You couldn't ask for a better location, easy beach access and close to plenty of Tybee's restaurants and shops! The pool is heated so we especially loved that being there in February. Will definitely be staying here again! "

C E. from Atlanta, GA, 03/03/2020

The best house!!

"We stayed here this summer for a few days and absolutely LOVED it! The decor of the house was beautiful, and it had a great beachy feel to it. It is so close to the beach and is nearby some great places to eat. We especially loved the pool area and the porch. The upstairs is also great for kids! We would definately love to come back!"

Sarah D. from Atlanta, 09/30/2019

"11 of us stayed at Time Goes By and absolutely loved it. The house was clean, well decorated, perfect location, and comfortable for all of us. Highly recommend!"

Melissa P. from , 08/27/2019

"The home is perfectly decorated! It is truly charming. The wrap around porch is amazing and we loved having our morning coffee out there.
It is super close to the beach and there are plenty of chairs and towels!
The pool is amazing for when we wanted to get away from the beach.
This was out first trip to Tybee Island and will not be out last and we would definitely stay at "As Time Goes By" again!!

Shannon V. from Springfield, 07/29/2019

Tybee treasure!

"Our extended family vacation of 5 adults and 5 kids spent an amazing week at Time Goes By! The house was way bigger than it looked in photos. The decor was beautiful and welcoming - we loved all the unique touches. We had plenty of space and everything was clean and comfortable (I was amazed I did not see one bug in the house all week!). The pool and outdoor space was fantastic, especially since it was a super hot week! The beach access over the dunes was not easy to figure out, so we took the short walk one street over. Jim and the Tybee Cottages team was super helpful and quick with communication. Our family had a great time and would definitely recommend this house to others! "

Megan W. from Cincinnati, Ohio, 07/25/2019

"My family, friends and I absolutely loved our stay at As Time Goes By. The house had everything we needed for a relaxing stay, including a wonderful large pool. It was clean and very well maintained. We also appreciated our correspondence with Jim at Tybee Cottages, who helped answer all of our questions! "

Morgan P. from Los Angeles, 05/27/2019

"Amazing experience!!! The pictures dont do the home justice, it is even better in real life! We already want to stay again!!!"

from , 03/26/2019

Tybee Perfection!

"We loved our stay in As Time Goes By! It is perfectly decorated with thoughtful touches throughout. Spacious with comfortable bedding and furnishings. The location is ideal with both privacy and proximity to the beach and fun restaurants. So well designed -- almost made me want to skip the beach and stay inside all day to enjoy the tasteful and whimsical decor. A true gem! We look forward to coming back!"

Jenni J. from Raleigh, 07/30/2018


"This is an amazing house! It has so much character, is beautifully decorated, and so comfortable at the same time. We LOVED the huge wrap-around porch, which also has a ping pong table and is a great addition. Also, it is a quick walk to the beach, so very easy to go back and forth from the house to the beach. It was centrally located, so we were able to walk or ride bikes everywhere. We cannot wait to go back!!"
