Welcome to this stunning cottage, a true gem built in 1935 and lovingly preserved by renowned preservationist Jane Coslick. In 1996, it was moved and saved from demolition, becoming one of her first remarkable rescues, and its timeless charm and beauty were even showcased on the cover of Coastal Living in 2000.

As you ascend the steps to the welcoming screened-in porch, you'll be greeted by quaint and colorful beach decor, setting the perfect tone for a delightful stay. The porch offers a variety of seating options and tables, inviting you to lounge, relax, and soak in the serene atmosphere.

Step inside this sophisticated cottage, all on one level, and be captivated by the warm wood floors, abundant natural light, and delightful splashes of local art throughout. The open sitting, dining, and kitchen area seamlessly blend together, creating a harmonious space for gatherings. A TV and a dining table accommodating up to 5 guests ensure entertainment and dining pleasure.

A small bedroom, tucked off the living room, features two twin beds, offering comfort and privacy with the convenience of a privacy curtain. The master bedroom boasts a queen bed and a full bath with a tub/shower ensuite, providing a serene retreat for relaxation. Additionally, there is a convenient hallway half bath for added comfort.

Outside, a small open back porch awaits sun enthusiasts, adorned with two hand-painted Adirondack chairs, offering a perfect spot to bask in the warm rays. The porch overlooks the shady fenced-in back yard, where you'll find an outdoor shower and a charming picnic table, creating an idyllic setting for enjoying outdoor moments.

Experience the timeless beauty of this gorgeous cottage, where history meets coastal charm, and where every detail has been thoughtfully curated to create a truly enchanting retreat for your stay.

Recent Reviews About This Property

"The cottage is charming, and everything looked clean. The screened-in porch is simply to-die-for.
But: the kitchen really needs a step stool for shorter people. I had to rely on my travel companion to get dishes down for me.
And the really big but: the bed she used off of the living room? Had mouse poop in the sheets!!! Disgusting. Thankfully since there’s a washer/dryer and detergent, she washed the sheets and put them back off. But that was almost a deal-breaker.
Also, I left my (very expensive) pillow there. If I pay for shipping, would you be able to send it back to me?"

from Richmond, 11/19/2023

"My childhood friend and I had a wonderful few days together in this well-furnished vintage cottage. The beds were comfortable with plenty of extra pillows and blankets. There were lots of extra towels, and the kitchen had everything necessary and more. Close to the beach. The neighborhood was well maintained - perfect for walking and biking. Grocery store two blocks away. It was a comfortable drive to Savannah for great shopping and dining. We would recommend Palm Cottage. "

Laura M. from Milford, 10/24/2023

"The cottage should not be advertised as a two- bedroom cottage. It has one bedroom and a porch with two twin beds. The porch has no door. The windows have no shades. All of the curtains in the entire cottage are see through. The neighbors we kind enough to let us know this. The cottage is cute, but it is not two bedrooms. Put a door on the porch. Add some wood shutter shades to block off the windows from the kitchen. Maybe then it could be advertised as a two bedroom. Several simple maintenance items - shower diverter needs to be replaced it is only partially working. Shower curtain is too short (hint add double shower curtain rings.) Several areas of the flooring have weak spots and need to be replaced (in front of refrigerator and at porch entry area) The place has everything you need. Great location. The place is tidy but could have been cleaner - surfaces were not cleaned as well as they could have been. The place is perfect for a couple with two kids. "

from BYFIELD, 10/16/2023

"We had a wonderful stay at the Palm Cottage! We arrived the last week in July so as soon as we opened the door, the AC was blasting and couldn't have felt better! The cottage was everything and more! Beautiful decor, extremely and I mean extremely clean, and just wonderfully kept. It was BEAUTIFUL! Everything was provided, we only needed food of course :) Much bigger than what I expected it to be. My young teenagers enjoyed their private part of the cottage w their own beds. The books, games and such were a wonderful addition which they enjoyed. Such a short walk to the beach and the IGA. I do recommend reserving a golf cart as soon as you arrive. Tybee Golf Carts rental were very friendly and accomodating. We found it the best way to see the entire island, especially the lighthouse, and getting to most restaurants (especially Huckapoo's).
If I may, one upgrade I suggest (small, but needed) is to put new temperature dials on the stovetop. They have all but disappeared. When using multiple burners, it became difficult remembering how hot the settings were of each item. But, overall an incredible stay! I highly recommend! A wonderful vacation and lots of memeories made for our family! Do not look elsewhere."

from Williamsport, 09/20/2023

"Tybee Cottages was a real treat! Within walking distance to the beach, nice restaurants and cool shopping!! The sweet little cottage was so nice and comfortable! We will definitely go back and stay again!"

Mercedes S. from Sylacauga, 08/08/2023

"We were so delighted with both this property and the Tybee experience, To call this a "cozy cottage" is an emmense understatement. The charming decorating, and furnishings add so much to an "at home, peaceful" stay. "

John T Jr M. from Dayton, 07/24/2023

"The Owner thought of everything in this well-appointed cottage.....they chose to do a great restoration instead of tearing this down & building another big ole box. Very quiet & very cool. 4 minute walk to the waters edge"

Bryan K. from RICHMOND, 06/28/2023

"This quaint cottage was perfect for our family of 4. The screened in porch was relaxing and a great way to enjoy the island atmosphere. My family enjoyed every minute at the cottage and we plan on returning again. The cottage may look small next to other rental houses around it, but it felt spacious and functional. I recommend anyone wanting to enjoy the island life to stay at this perfect little cottage. My family voted this vacation the best one so far and it's hard to please teenagers."

from Hillsboro , 06/24/2023

"I absolutely adore this place! From the artwork to the beautiful mixture of colors you feel like you’re at home! It sits in the middle of everything and very quiet. "

from Guyton , 04/19/2023

HI Misty, It seems like you enjoyed your stay at Palm Cottage but I am curious as to why you do not feel you could recommend it to others. I'll reach out to you as I'm really wanting your feedback. Thanks so much, Denise

"My fiancé and I stayed here for three nights recently and really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is in a great location - about a 10 minute walk to the beach and a 25 minute drive to downtown Savannah. We really enjoyed getting to eat breakfast on the screened-in porch every morning. The only thing I wish we had known ahead of time is that the curtains are all sheers, including in the bedroom, and there are no curtains on the doors to the porch. This means the cottage gets lots of natural light during the day, but it can make it hard to sleep in. I recommend bringing a sleep mask and a robe. The washer and dryer are small but worked well, and the closet in the bedroom was well-stocked with towels. "

Amy S. from Atlanta, 10/16/2022

"Cottage was very clean and well appointed. We loved the location as it was just a short walk to the beach, grocery and restaurants."

Jessica M. from Tiffin, 07/30/2022

"My family says Palm Cottage looks like me. This was my second time staying here. My grandson and I stayed the week of the July 4th. He (age 11) always wants to stay here so he can use the outdoor shower! I just wish it had a full length mirror somewhere. "

Judi K. from Chattanooga , 07/11/2022

"Tybee is different from southern beach communities. The city does not allow high rises and numerous historic cottages have been saved and turned into rentals. They are part of actual neighborhoods where real people live. There is a picturesque historic fort and a lighthouse. Tybee is not therefore one of the highrise condo towns nor is it a Seaside type upscale planned community. You have to be careful renting. We have been renting from a friendly and helpful guy named Jim Heflin for several years. But he just sold it and we are not sure how his successor will handle things. I made some suggestions to the new manager but never heard back. Palm cottage is perfect for a couple and their child or for just a couple - we have done both. I do not recommend it for more people than that; It is on Second Ave which is a bike path street with little traffic. Palm cottage is a couple blocks and an easy walk or bike ride to the beach. It has a pleasant screen porch, a decent living room, an outdated kitchen which we used every night for cooking fish dinners, an adequate bathroom, a tiny half bath, a queen bed (prefer king but this one is comfortable) and two twin beds off the living room. Don’t go there thinking it is all perfect. Go there if you like ‘character’ and laid back slightly eclectic living. We will go back to Palm Cottage and recommend it highly even with the above comments. It needs a general update but given the choice of no update and the current price or update and a higher price, Im fine with Palm the way it is. Highly recommend Tim’s bikes they deliver to the cottage; the beach is fun to bike on at low tide (only). We stock up on fresh fish at the historic Russo fish market in Savannah and add food at Whole Foods and try to cook all meals at our cottage. You may find a place you like for dining on Tybee but the restaurants and grocery stores are not our favorites. Despite my comments Tybee and Palm are our kind of place. "

jim p. from , 06/11/2022

HI Jim THANK YOU so much for the feedback. We will certain miss Jim in his retirement buy I assure you we will take the best of care to you. Palm is an adorable laid back beachhouse in a laid back beach community! We always can find room for improvements and try and encourage the home owners to do so. We hope to continue to see you year after year and know we are always here for you, THanks again, Denise and the TC Team

"The location is wonderful (just 4 blocks to the beach, and about the same to south end restaurants and shops) and the decor/vibe is lovely. Terrific porch and nice yard. Being particular, the kitchen is in need of a bread knife and some overall organization in the cupboards, and new beach chairs are in order (several are bent or broken). "

Derwin and Darlene R. from Pittsburgh, 03/25/2022

Darlene, Thank you for your comments. We are glad you enjoyed your visit to Palm Cottage. Thanks, too, for letting us know about the condition of the beach chairs and kitchen needs. Both items will be addressed immediately. Jim

"Perfect location. Appreciate people who preserve Tybee cottage history. Loved the screen porch. Home needs a large mirror and another dresser for clothes. The refrigerator needs a thorough cleaning inside and out. We cleaned inside before we used it. We would stay here again and recommend to others. Had a very nice experience on Tybee as usual."

Kris K. from Green Bay, 03/07/2022

"Palm Cottage is charming, cozy, and comfortable! It exceeded expectations, and I’ll definitely rent it again. The folks at Tybee Cottages are so helpful and courteous as well. "

Lisa H. from Chattanooga, 02/06/2022

"Good thing we loved this cottage so much 'cause the weather was awful the whole time we were on Tybee Island. We watched a lot of movies and enjoyed our little cottage. "

Stella Y. from Lawernceville, 11/10/2021

"We stayed at the Palm Cottage and found it to be centrally located to all the things we wanted to do in Tybee. It was .3 miles to the beach. It was less than .5 miles to the restaurants we walked to for breakfast and dinner. A grocery store was close by too. While the cottage was very comfortable the beds were amazing. The beds in this cottage were great quality. We loved the decor and cozy feeling. "

Linda B. from , 10/04/2021

"It was a quiet and relaxing visit. The ocean water was very warm and beach was not crowded. The cottage was our comfortable home away from home. Thank you for another escape from life and work!"

from Lilburn, 08/31/2021

"It was enjoyable "

from Morristown, 07/25/2021

Hi Billie, We noticed your ratings were not what we strive for with all of our guests. What could we have done to make the home of better standards for you? We would love for you to let us know. We do appreciate ALL feedback, positive or negative, so we can continually improve for the betterrment of our guests. If you prefer to email, please send to me at . Thanks so much and we hope to see you again soon, Denise

"Didn’t have much time,but so happy with location & comfort "

Fay S. from Richmond Hill, 07/20/2021

"We loved every minute of staying at the Palm Cottage. The walk to the beach was shorter than we expected. The road barely had traffic other than bikes and golf carts. It was so quiet in the evenings and peaceful. The cottage was clean and exactly what we expected for a cottage built in the 40's. We would definitely stay again. We only had 2 people but a family of 4 could comfortably fit in this home. You won't regret staying here! "

Michelle J. from Winchester, 07/19/2021

"We really enjoyed our stay at the Palm Cottage. It was very clean and it was the perfect size for our vacation. It is located within walking distance of a lot of restaurants, close to the grocery store, and it's a quick walk to the beach. "

Amy Beth W. from Alliance, 07/05/2021

"Palm Cottage never disappoints! It's the vintage charm and being within walking distance to the beach that brings us back year after year!"

from Seymour, 06/07/2021

"Palm Cottage has it all...delightful décor, comfy furniture, sunny porch and deck, outdoor shower, great location and an extra half-bath. Loved our stay!"

Linda T. from Sarasota, 05/28/2021

"I enjoyed a very pleasant week at the Palm Cottage. The weather was mostly warm and sunny with only one overcast day. I had a good time spent at the beach, dining out, and visiting downtown Savannah one afternoon. I love the cottage and hope to visit Tybee Island again in the near future. "

David H. from , 05/17/2021

"Palm Cottage is so charming and perfect for a getaway. The house is neat and tidy. We loved sitting on the screened porch and taking our showers outdoors! The location is perfect for biking, beaching, and walking.

Small area for improvement: while the kitchen is relatively well-stocked, it would be great to update some of the items (pots/pans, spatulas, knives) and tidy up the cabinets. "

Gayle E. from , 05/14/2021

Gayle, Thank you for your comments. We are gld you enjoyed your visit to Palm Cottage. Thanks, too, for your suggestions which will be immediately addressed. Jim

"Cute, cozy, relaxing, and charming cottage! "

from Red House, 03/18/2021

"Loved this little cottage; perfect for one person or a couple. Lots of charm and a lovely screened in porch."

Margaret B. from Silver Spring, 01/12/2021

Hi Margaret, You indeed found one of our little gems! Come again soon, Denise & the TC team

"I had a wonderful week at Palm Cottage; it was so comfortable and tastefully decorated, I felt immediately at home. The large porch was my favorite place, though there were also many cozy places to sit inside when it was raining. It was close to the beach, to the IGA, to A.J.s Dockside, so I never had to get in my car the whole week. Jim at Tybee Cottages was responsive to my questions and very easy to work with. I would come back here any time. "

Virginia C. from Sewanee, 11/17/2020

"We’ve stayed in five different places on Tybee. This was our favorite. The location was perfect. We loved the history of the house and the vintage charm. But has everything we needed for a great vacation. We usually like to rent different cottages each time we visit.
This may be a repeat rental.!"

Kim M. from Lawrenceburg, 10/09/2020

"My friend, Susan Flaherty, asked me years ago if she should buy this cottage! "YES," I said. It will be a terrific investment. It has been one, indeed for her. I have stayed there several times as her guest with her as well as her quest in the rental program. I am always very happy in this tiny place! Always!"

Monica M. from Savannah, 07/06/2020

"We had a wonderful experience . Love every minute. "

Thomas R. from Rembert, 06/28/2020

"Very cute and comfortable cottage in an excellent location. There was a short walk to the grocery store and the beach. The screened porch was just perfect."

Jennifer B. from , 06/14/2020

"What a lovely, wonderful time we had at Palm Cottage! A quaint little spot on a beautiful island! The blue skies, the sunshine, the smell of jasmine (wild flowers), and the ocean breeze all made for a wonderful week at this special place! Especially loved the hardwood floors, shiplap interior, and the screened-in porch! We thank the Lord for our stay there!"

John R. from Portsmouth, 05/17/2020

"A lovely little cottage, very light and bright on the inside, clean, ideal for two but okay for up to four (especially if they are kids.) Great screen porch! A couple of blocks from everything important—the IGA, breakfast, dinner, or the beach. Great area for walking and on the bike path. Jim Heflin from Tybee Cottages was very helpful and all arrangements were exactly as stated."

Tina D. from Milton, 09/25/2019

"This is our second year staying in Palm Cottage. We love everything about the little cottage- already planning for next year!"

from PURCELLVILLE, 09/22/2019

"We love Palm Cottage so much, we went back and stayed a second time a few years later! It’s a great location, adorable, well organized. Jim answered a question quickly, and we like the outside shower for after the beach. It’s quiet, and close to the market, good restaurants, and like I said—just cute!!"

Barbara P. from Broomfield, 08/11/2019

"we cannot say enough about how great our stay was at the Palm Cottage. The home was clean and so welcoming for a long travel from St. Louis. Our 3 year old was delighted at her own space, in the front of the cottage there is a cute little room with 2 twin beds perfect for little ones to play and sleep. The screened in porch area was definitely our favorite place to be after a long day at the beach, perfect if mosquitoes love you and the last thing you want to do is load up on bug spray to enjoy the outdoors at sun down. This home was really perfect for our family of 3 and one of our favorite places to stay to date after coming to tybee for the last 20 years. Thank you to Jim for making everything so easy, we will be renting again very soon!"

Janelle P. from Lake St. Louis, 07/29/2019

"Tybee cottages did not disappoint! Palm cottage was home away from home. Everything we needed and more. The golf cart we rented made all the difference getting around the island and parking pass on the island is included in the rental!! Big help"

Carol W. from Alamo, 06/11/2019

"I love Palm Cottage! Every time I stay there, I think how much I love to RELAX at Tybee!!!!!"

Monica M. from Savannah, 06/10/2019

"We recently stayed at The Palm Cottage, another beautiful restoration by Jane Coslick, and we loved it! The cottage was perfect for us; so spotlessly clean and adorable. Great location within walking distance of everything. Jim is always so communicative and makes the rental experience so easy - I will always highly recommend Tybee Cottages every single time!"

Michelle B. from Falls Church, 04/28/2019

"This is a very nice cottage in a convenient location, close enough to the beah and the grocery store without the noise of Butler Avenue. We loved it!"

Jeff D. from Tucker, 04/06/2019

"Exceeded our expectations!"

Diane R. from Tiffin, 12/03/2018

"Don't be fooled by the unassuming exterior! This cottage is so much bigger than it appears, and the interior design is just fabulous!!!! I was still discovering new items after the first few days. Two beautiful bedrooms, a bath and a half, and a fully equipped kitchen gave us a lovely home away from home. A short walk to the beach, as well as the shops and restaurants, friend folks every where, perfect weather - what more could one ask for?! We'll be back!

Julia J. from Mulberry, 10/13/2018

"The cottage was exactly as pictured! My husband & I loved the cottage & easy access to the beach, restaurants & grocery store. Lovely neighborhood.
Jim @ Tybee Cottages was a pleasure to work with- only regret not getting to thank him in person. We have already recommended Tybee Island & specifically Tybee Cottages to everyone we’ve spoken to about our trip."

from PURCELLVILLE, 10/01/2018

"I don't have words to describe my rental experience...except perfection! I can't imagine a more perfect rental for 2 people than this. From a clean, well decorated interior to a perfect screened in porch for rainy days, this cottage was just what I was needing for a few days of relaxation. We were a 5-10 minute walk to the beach (depending on how urgent we were to get there) and a short walk away to many of Tybee's wonderful restaurants allowing me to keep my car parked in the driveway the entire vacation! It was sheer perfection that I plan on repeating next year!"

Anna H. from Murfreesboro, 09/16/2018

"My husband and I love visiting Tybee and staying at Palm Cottage. The location is ideal with easy walk to grocery store and the middle beach area. The weather was perfect and cottage is super comfortable. A most relaxing 7 days! Many thanks to Jim for taking good care of us once again."

Ismari C. from Lilburn , 08/20/2018

"Thanks his cottage had tons of character and was perfect for our family of 4. Love the decor, laundry area, screened porch and outdoor shower. The location was convenient to beach, grocery store and coffee!"

from Fort Mill, 07/30/2018

"We love Palm Cottage! It really feels like home the second we walk through the door. The location is great and it's easy to hop over to the beach or grab a bite to eat. The porch is my favorite, along with the front 'bedroom', which I think makes you feel like you're on a boat! "

Leanette R. from , 06/26/2018


"This was such a quaint and beautiful little cottage, it fit our every need & is a great little getaway. I would highly recommend, we will definitely come back!"

Kelly S. from Harrodsburg, 05/24/2018

"The cottage is a great place to enjoy the beach and everything it has to offer. Within walking distance of everything you need; a grocery store, restaurants and bars (AJ's is great and really close), the beach. It was clean and maintained and perfect for a getaway."

Joshua B. from Thornton, 05/10/2018

"We really liked the Palm Cottage. We have stayed in other places on Tybee, and unlike many houses labeled cottages, the Palm Cottage is a true cottage, which for us was a plus. We really enjoyed the screened porch and adjacent deck, spending most of our time there.

I cannot speak too highly of Jim Heflin. His consideration in helping us avoid major traffic problems in Savannah was above and beyond the call of duty. What could have been a fiasco for us was completely eliminated with Jim's help.

We are likely to rent the Palm Cottage again in the future, and we would recommend it to all."

Ellwood L. from ESCANABA, 03/28/2018

"A great cottage - charming, great location, had everything we needed and more!"

from Athens, 03/18/2018

"The cottage was unbelievable! Very cozy and quiet. Walking distance from anything you may need. The locals were very hospitable and we had a great visit. "

"Jim is very easy to work with and makes the rental process hassle free."

from Seymour, 10/08/2017

"After an eight year hiatus, I returned to Tybee Island and stayed at the Palm Cottage (1208 Second Avenue). It was a very enjoyable stay and the Palm Cottage was as delightful as I remembered it from years past. The cottage was very clean and well-maintained, as neat as a pin. The cottage is located just a short walk to the beach which makes it so nice. I enjoyed the beach and the pavilion for people watching. The food at Spanky's and Sting Ray's was very good. The visit to Fort Pulaski was very interesting and informational as well. I purchased souvenairs at Waves which has very nice merchandise and I my favorite store in Tybee Island. I had good customer service with Jim Heflin via phone conversation and e-mails. I only wished that I had seen Jim in person. Hopefully, I will return to Tybee Island next year and stay at the quaint Palm Cottage. I definitely would recommend this property to any friend or relative."

"This was our 2nd summer vacationing at The Palm Cottage, Tybee Island, which was relaxing, and extremely enjoyable.Every morning we would have our coffee on the covered porch. It is a perfect place to stay because it is off the main street and walking distance to the beach and food store is convenient. The cottage offers Coastal living and southern charm. "

Linda A. from , 07/25/2017

"I would live here if I could afford it. I guess that sums up my experience. "

Judi K. from Chattanooga , 07/24/2017

"We absolutely adored Palm Cottage! It really feels like another place to call "home". The location is great and the homes surrounding are well kept, making us feel even more comfortable in an otherwise unfamiliar location. The IGA is close by and the beach is fairly close, too. We sat on the screened porch several times. Something we were not prepared for-- the storm sirens sound with even a thunderstorm. Being from Oklahoma (we have tornadoes), this was especially nerve racking. I really wish there would have been some information on a local weather channel to watch or additional information on severe weather in the binder provided in the cottage. Also, there was no additional toilet paper or additional trash bags left for the duration of our stay (5 nights). I'm not sure if that's just something we should have been prepared to bring. Other than those little things, we really enjoyed our stay and loved visiting Tybee! "

Hello Annette, As we discussed and as it mentioned in the rental agreement that you signed, starter paper products are provided. Anything beyond that is not. As we also discussed, information on weather issues may be found on our local TV stations which I provided for you. We are glad that you and your daughter enjoyed the many wonderful features of Palm Cottage. Thanks again for staying with us. Jim

Love this cottage

"We have stayed at Palm Cottage many times. We absolutely love this classic beach cottage. You are within a five minute walk to the beach and ten minute walk to Tybee's business district which includes shops, restaurants, and bars."

Tracy P. from Kentucky, 05/19/2017

"The cottage was better than the pictures. I loved the Jane Coslick design, it is gorgeously bright and welcoming. Everything worked and is in good "cottage" shape. Loved the comfy slipcovered chairs inside and the quiet space on the back deck.The master bedroom was simply stunning & the bed was very comfortable. Lots of design books, Southern Living and O magazines to look at when having your tea or coffee on the back deck in the morning sun. Access to the beach is a mere few blocks away, easy walk. Two things I would suggest, perhaps its time for a new larger flat screen tv to replace the one in the bedroom & though the cottage was neat, it really could use a thorough cleaning (fans, lights, and especially kitchen & bathroom cupboards & door frames). One of those white Mr.Clean Magic Erasers would do a perfect job. That being said, I would stay at Palm Cottage the next time hands down. Its a real old school cottage with a fantastic history. Lastly, Property Management was perfect, considerate and professional, even leaving a hand written note for my arrival. Until next time.....cheers."

Gayla G. from Toronto, 02/15/2017

Gayla, Thank you for your comments. We are so glad that you enjoyed your visit to Palm Cottage. Thanks, too, for your suggestions. We have already completed a more thorough cleaning of the cottage. We hope that you will come back when your schedule allows. Jim

"Palm Cottage is perfect for a couple to get away from the hectic pace of daily life. The cottage was comfy, cute, clean, and tucked in a quiet area near the beach and grocery. We enjoyed the porch, outdoor shower, movies on the TV, beach, sunsets on back river and eating out. The kitchen is perfect for cooking breakfast in. Only negative is the bed.I know they got a new mattress two years ago but this one is spent - it sleeps like a loose hammock :) This place is still our favorite place for just the two of us."

Ismari C. from Lilburn , 09/28/2016

"This is by far the most relaxing place to vacation!! We rest, we sit on the beach, we ride bikes, we eat, rest some more, eat some more, beach it some more- all week!!!"

Barbara C. from , 09/06/2016

"The cottage was perfect in every way! Perfect central location to the beach, food, and night life! Absolute pleasure to work with the rental company. Very easy rental!"

Dana M. from Leitchfield, 08/08/2016

"We enjoyed our stay at The Palm Cottage and Tybee Island/ beach. It was walking distance to the beach and local food store. It could use a good dusting of the lamps, and ceiling fans. While we were there the lawn was cut. Not sure why because all they did was blow dust and dirt onto the covered, screened in porch. Instead the grounds could use a good raking, (landscaping) so guests could enjoy the outdoor space. "

Linda A. from , 08/01/2016

"We can't say enough about our week at Tybee Island and our stay at Palm Cottage. Beautiful, clean and very well furnished! Loved it!"

Susan M. from Holly Pond, 05/29/2016

"We have rented several cottages on Tybee Island but Palm Cottage was our favorite. It had everything we needed and was in our favorite location on the island...close to everything. We love that you never have to get in your car. Bike or walk to the beach, restaurants, shops and the grocery store is right around the corner. We will definitely stay at Palm Cottage again!"

Karen W. from , 05/23/2016


Charles M. from Winchester, 04/10/2016

"Truly enjoyed the trip! The cottage was super cute! Few things need fixing, such as the bathroom shower knob. It took me two days taking a cold shower to realize that the knob was incorrect due to it turns all the way around. Also, their is a community rooster that crowd when it is still dark but I got used to him. Other than that I loved the setting, furniture, and location of the cottage!"

Amanda H. from Peru, 03/26/2016

We are glad that you enjoyed your visit to Tybee and Palm Cottage. One call to our office would have taken care of both of your issues. Please let us know when there is anything that you need and we will be glad to help.

"I love this little cottage, it's the perfect size for a couple and just adorable. Clean, well supplied. Property managers were very helpful. We loved the location and using the bikes. The island is one of our favorites to visit. Not far from Savannah where we had the best time taking in the culture and atmosphere.
A very memorable vacation! Thank you."

from Clinton , 11/30/2015

"My stay at the Palm Cottage was just what I needed. Although it rained or was overcast everyday and I didn't get a chance to go to the beach, I rested and relaxed and spent the time writing in my journal, sitting on the porch and just "being". After months of working without a break it was wonderful just to get away. It was quiet and I love the shabby chic style of the cottage. It was wonderful and I would highly recommend it to anyone who just needs some time to relax and enjoy Tybee."

Wanda K. from Smyrna, 09/14/2015

"We spent 3 nights in the Palm Cottage and loved it. Jane Coslicks first cottage was enchanting and wonderful. We wish it had a pool? It was tough hearing the neighbors diving into their pool."

Dan F. from , 08/31/2015

"As a family, we love to be together. This small cottage allowed us to have room for our own beds while being together. We weren't far from the beach and the house was precious! We are all wishing that we were still there!"

Alison R. from Gainesville , 07/30/2015

"This was the most pleasant rental experience I have ever had. Access to the cottage was easy, the housing was perfect and charming. I will be back!"

Tierney F. from Harrisburg, 05/20/2015

"Overall, a very nice getaway! Cottage was located in a quiet neighborhood in a convenient location. Positives: nature abounds - we had chickadees and thrashers nesting on the property; many other birds sang and lizards and squirrels made appearances as well. Easy walk to beaches, wonderful sunsets viewed from Venetian Drive, close to IGA. Cottage was perfect for a couple, loved the screened porch. Negatives: Disappointed in restaurants and shopping options; Sunset Cafe was really the only good restaurant we encountered, shops were not unique and did not feature quality merchandise. We enjoyed kayaking, Fort Pulaski and the Tybee Lighthouse, but felt activities were somewhat limited. In the cottage, the master bathroom toilet sometimes ran at night, we had to purchase our own toilet paper and Kleenex, and the neighbor's dog was a bit noisy at night, but really these items did not deter from our overall wonderful cottage experience!"

from Fort Collins, 05/12/2015

"We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay at the Palm Cottage at Tybee. Loved the care and attention to detail that shows in the preservation of this spot."

"Very clean and well kept. Convenient location, short walk to beach. It was the perfect place to spend our 20th anniversary. We will certainly be back for another stay."

Sherry T. from Paragould, 04/15/2015

"The cottage was just as advertised, quaint, cozy and very clean. The amenities served our purposes. The proximity to the beach and Savannah made our visit pleasant. Although we know you can't control it, our only complaint would be the weather. "

from Chardon, 03/29/2015

"This was our third stay at Palm Cottage and we had a wonderful time. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. We spent most of our time out on the porch, bike riding, on the beach and eating out. Highly recommend for couples wanting to escape the fast lane reality for a week.Thank you Tybee Cottages for the great care you provided us! "

Ismari C. from Lilburn , 09/29/2014

"We ended up at the last second being moved over to a different property due to something unforeseen so unfortunately I cannot give it a proper review. That being said we were properly taken care of by Jim and the folks at Tybee Cottages and loved the cottage house we did stay in. Jim was very responsive answering questions and the whole experience was great. Will look to do it again."

Matt L. from Oakland, 09/29/2014

"This was a wonderful experience- perfect time of year- perfect weather- perfect cottage-beautiful surrounding areas to visit and spend time- wonderful restaurants"

Barbara C. from , 09/16/2014

"We loved being in a such a pretty cottage as it gave us so much more freedom and room. Palm Cottage was absolutely charming and we would stay there again. The location was perfect; close to everything but off the main road. We had a wonderful time and hope to return some day."

Susan B. from Toronto, 06/15/2014

"We walked straight into palm cottage and immediately felt like we were home.

Indeed it is a sweet little cottage on a quiet tree lined street, and only a few minutes walk from the beach.

Rent a bike to explore the island and relax into the tybee way of life!


- fun/ quirky decor, very in keeping with the local feel
- lots of books and magazines to keep you busy while relaxing on....
- a lovely screened in porch
- washer/ dryer and good Wifi
- great space for a couple with a baby, but would also be good with older kids

- the second twin bedroom doesn't have a door, so it would be hard to get young children to bed just off the kitchen/ dining area
- appliances are a little outdated ( all in working order though) and no dishwasher ( not a problem to us, but worth noting)
- seemed just a little bit cluttered ( maybe could do with clearing out some excess without removing the quirky knick knacky charm)

All said, I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to visit Tybee Island!"

from London, 04/09/2014

"We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at the Palm Cottage. The reservation process and arrival were smooth and just as advertised! The location was fantastic with all areas on Tybee within walking distance. The cottage itself was basic but all necessary amenities were included/available. It is an older cottage with plenty of charm. "

from Rogers, 02/24/2014

"This is the perfect little cottage for a few days or week of relaxation on our beautiful Tybee. Great location and quiet neighborhood. The screened porch is great for sitting at night and listening to all the night sounds and watching the bike riders go by. Love this cottage.

Shirley M. from Bloomingdale, 10/22/2013

"We had an amazing stay at Palm Cottage for our Honeymoon. The cottage was exactly as described on the rental website (clean, cozy, nicely decorated, and actually a little bigger than expected). The beach and restaurants were a minute's walk away. Great memories and a perfect relaxing atmosphere; would highly recommend both Tybee Island and the Palm Cottage to honeymooners and families alike."

Erik C. from Menomonie, 10/17/2013

"We stayed at the beginning of October and the weather was fabulous! The first thing I did was open the transom windows & turned off the a/c. A must! (besides, I'm 6'4" and my wife is 5'3"- she can't reach!) We kayaked twice, walked the neighborhood, went to the beach daily. and generally loafed around. This cottage is perfectly situated 3 blocks from the mid-beach area and 2 blocks from the grocery store. The Tybee Cottages folks are great & easy to work with. This is THE place we try to rent and you should, too!"

Craig C. from Lilburn, 10/08/2013

"We loved the cottage. We felt like real islanders. Everything that is needed for a great experience is provided at Palm Cottage. Location to the beach was great and to town. We were able to get our exercise in everyday. "

Patricia R. from Norton, 09/16/2013

"I loved this cottage! It was so cute, comfortable, and they thought of everything! 2 block walk to the beach. They even had beach chairs and sand buckets, and an outside shower for sand. Screened porch. Exactly as advertised. Just like I picture a cottage when I think of a cottage. Highly recommend!!"

Barbara P. from Broomfield, 08/30/2013

"This was just the right size and vibe for us to celebrate our 6oth birthdays and our new status as empty nesters. the screen porch and deck were perfect for early morning coffee and reading. Loved the décor and the light that make this place special. Had all the amenities we needed."

Kaye H. from Murfreesboro, 08/15/2013

"My wife and I made this rental for our son and his new wife for their Honeymoon. 26 years ago this month we were married. We had a very modest honeymoon which was special in our own way, but we wanted to give them more. They loved the house, the location, and were thrilled with their stay. This was a gift to us to see their joy and happiness. Also Jim Heflin the rental agent we dealt with was GREAT in every way. He made everything easy and helped us assure they had a great experience. He was the BEST!!!"

"We have stayed at the Palm cottage before and always enjoy our visit. The cottage is like a bit of heaven away from home. It's our favorite place to stay when we go to the beach."

Bob W. from Mableton, 08/02/2013

"My wife (Sheila) and I really enjoyed our stay. It was so relaxing to enjoy a home made breakfast before strolling to the beach to spend the morning and early afternoon. It had all the conveniences of home including a washer and dryer, which came in handy since I only brought one pair of short pants with me. we also enjoyed sitting out on the deck listening to the cardinals. The outdoors shower is also nice when coming in from the beach. The weather called for daily showers but they never interfered with out plans. We loved the Palm Cottage. We would definitely go back. "

"Wonderful cottage for two. Perfect walk to the best beach ever. Close to IGA for foods/wine. Would love to return. "
