Are you looking for a beach cottage with nothing between you and the ocean but sand and dunes? Look no further! This simple gray cottage, built around vintage Trolley # 604, is literally sitting on the sand and is steps away from the beach.
Long and lean, the actual trolley is the sitting room with two oversized denim sofas, a trolley bench, and a TV. The trolley windows look into the sunroom, and the sunroom has wall-to-wall windows. Did we mention the ocean view? This cottage is not about watching TV; it's about watching the waves.
Vintage and whimsical décor throughout makes you feel like you've returned to a simpler time. On one end of the cottage, a serene white king bedroom with a full bath leads into a small bedroom with twin beds. On the other end, there is a second bathroom and a queen bedroom with alcove large enough for a portable crib.
The kitchen is small, yet functional. Certainly not a gourmet kitchen, but who needs that at the beach! "Re-arrangeable" tables and chairs on the sunroom and the deck allow you to set up what dining arrangements work best for your group.
Restaurants, shops, the Y, and the library are all within walking distance. All on one level, this step back in time is perfect for a family, a girlfriend getaway or folks who truly love the beach?and being together. Hop aboard, and while you are here, maybe you can solve the mystery of how a trolley made by St. Louis Car Company (1887 to 1974) ended up on Tybee's beach.
Six person two car maximum.

Starting with Jim - great person to do business with, friendly and very helpful.
The Trolley had a lot of character, clean, amenities were nice and the deck got a lot of use. We both had a great stay. Thank you Jim
"Tybee never disappoints in the view of my wife and I! This is our first time actually staying ON the beach and it was very enjoyable. As it was mid-March, we were not expecting warm weather to be able to be out on the beach like in summer, so having the enclosed porch and deck right on the sand was a very nice amenity! The Trolley House was PERFECT for what we were looking for and already has us talking about returning! Can't ever go wrong with Tybee Cottages in our opinion!"
"The house was great. We had an excellent time. Future guests should be aware that there are several stray cats that live on the property and use the sand directly in front of the house as a litter box. They didn't bother us, but we did have to watch our step on the way to the beach. May be of concern if you have kids that want to play in the sand there. Also, the twin bedroom can only be accessed through the master bedroom. However, it was an affordable, nice, beachfront property."
"Jim has always been the best and easy to work with. Location and property was great. As always Enjoyed renting from Jim and Tybee cottages."
"The cottage was great and the loacation was perfect!"
" When it comes to vacation getaways, The Tybee Trolley has been one of the best I have had in resent memory. An that all started from the outstanding cottage which housed my family and I. This lovely beach front spot gave us the best of views to enjoy while we planned out our adventures for the day. Also the restored old timey St. Louis trolley frame gives to the well spaced cottage something for your eye to constantly move to and stay in awes of, if you can tear them away again from the fantastic view of the beach you will have. I can not speaker higher or kinder of the time we spent at the Tybee Trolley and know that I can't wait for my next stay."
"Our Stay was very relaxing and comfortable and even though the weather was a bit nippy, we were able to sit in the enclosed porch area and view the beach. The cottage was very unique and was exceptionally clean. It was in a great location. The kitchen was very small, but suited our needs for 4 adults staying here. "
"They Tybee Trolley was the perfect place for our after Christmas getaway. We loved being right on the beach. I worked while we were there and was able to sit on the enclosed back area and watch the ocean and ships while working! "
"The old train car feel is really neat. Ceilings are low but overall space is plenty big enough for 3-4 folks. Cannot beat location! Right on the ocean. Lovely porch and deck right outside. "
"A secluded quiet restful getaway."
"My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our week staying at the Tybee Trolley cottage. It did not disappoint - lots of character and charm. Due to dietary restrictions we ate most of our meals at the cottage. Kitchen was well stocked and enabled us to do all the cooking we needed to do. Lovely ocean views-great beach location. We alternated daily either going into Savannah to tour and explore or spending time on the island doing the same. That worked out wonderfully for us."
"It was wonderful as always! This home is well kept and always clean and comfortable. Its convenient to everything, especially the beach. I would recommend this property to anyone. We love the small town feel at Tybee like the IGA grocery, the small shops and the local restaurants. "
"Great location. Charming cottage and amenities. Our favorite place to stay on Tybee. Jim Heflin is wonderful with and very accommodating. Can’t wait to return. "
"Everything was great! The cottage is so unique & the location can’t be beat. I would literally open the back door & let the boys run straight to the beach. We loved everything about the cottage, from the trolley itself to the linens, amazing sink, super-comfy couches, and the beach chairs provided. "
"As always a stay in a Tybee Cottages home was awesome. The Trolley is not a 5 star resort, but it wasn't expected to be. It's very comfortable for 3 people, and I'd definitely rent again with 4. Being beachfront is special. Thank you, Jim! "
"Went there with family. Enjoyable experience. Only complaint would be the beds. We like a firm bed and they were very soft. "
"The Trolley is an older and very unique property full of quirky charm. We have stayed at the Trolley many times and hope to stay there again in the future. Our only disappointment this trip is that the recent beach reconstruction has blocked the view of the beach and ocean. "
