You and your family will enjoy happy family time in this great house with wide porches, airy rooms, a large heated saltwater pool and close access to the beach! As Time Goes By is named for its historic status as an original 1920 Tybee Strand Cottage as well as a sweet reminder of the owners' first dance as a married couple. The home has hardwood floors, beadboard walls, tall 14' ceilings with transom windows, a claw foot bathtub and a wide curving porch on three sides. Acclaimed designer and preservationist Jane Coslick's touch is everywhere in this home from the inviting bed on the porch for napping, to the built-in bunk room with individual reading lights for each bunk, to the beautiful and comfortable furnishings throughout. Jane has kept a soothing white color palette and added lots of beachy turquoise with pops of pink, orange and citron through original artwork, vintage furniture finds and cool lighting and accessories from some of her favorite makers (including Stray Dogs Designs and Ro Sham Beaux lighting).
There are four steps up to the main level which features an updated kitchen with island seating for 4, light filled dining room with seating for up to 12, laundry, living room with large tv, as well as the master bedroom (King bed) with private brand new full bath and guest bedroom (two Queen beds) with brand new full bath.
Upstairs is a third bedroom (Queen bed) with adjoining reading nook, bunkroom (four Twin beds), a shared full bath, and upstairs den with TV and game table along with a peek of an ocean view!
There is plenty of room and seating on the large wraparound porch for reading, visiting and dining al fresco. Or just hanging out and enjoying the Tybee breezes! The porch also has a ping pong table. The large heated saltwater pool is the focal point of the outdoor spaces complete with a large deck with dining table and outdoor shower.
This house is located just one house from the beach which is accessible via a private walkway (with steps) that takes you halfway over the dunes. Another option without steps is to access the beach via the public 13th Street walkover a short walk or drive away.
This home was featured by House of Turquoise as well as on the Tybee Island Tour of Homes 2019.
There is a 12 person three car maximum at 6 12th Place.

"Amazing experience!!! The pictures dont do the home justice, it is even better in real life! We already want to stay again!!!"
"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! "
"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!!
"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!"
"We loved the house. It was perfect for our needs and very comfortable for 8 people. The pool was awesome!"
"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.

"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. "
