"Our first trip to Tybee Island exceeded our expectations. The cottage is so warm and inviting. The attention to details in this beautifully decorated home is exceptional. Jim from Tybee Island Cottages was very helpful and made sure our stay was a great experience. We will definitely be returning.
"We had an AMAZING time. We plan on coming back every year. Tybee and Savannah area is one of our favorite places. Lots to do! Jim was AWESOME! Coral Cottage was PERFECT! See you next year."
"We (my 2 sisters and myself) had a wonderful time! Coral Cottage exceeded our expectations!!! From opening the door to the beautiful furniture, we were in awe! The place was in great shape and extremely clean, which made things so much more enjoyable! Jim Heflin our agent was VERY accommodating and very professional We will be returning! "
"The Agent was friendly and professional. The property was beautiful and located on a quiet street. We enjoyed walking and biking around the area. It was nice to get fish at a local fish market and cook in the evening."
"The cottage was just as beautiful in person as in the pictures. The decor, linens, location, just everything was wonderful. My family had a wonderful vacation and loved the cottage. It was close to the beach but in a quite nook of the island, so we had the best of both. We thought Jim was so professional and responded to our questions quickly. We will definitely contact Tybee Cottages again when we return to Tybee, which we DEFINITELY will."
"The pictures of this property do not do it justice. When my wife, daughters and arrived we were exhausted from our long trip, but we immediately felt like we were home. The cottage was very comfortable and the entire lot provided enough room for us to feel like we had private space. The outdoor shower was an added surprise that became a family favorite after spending time at the beach. There was a short walk to the beach and I was able to bicycle daily along the bike route and beach. I have told all my friends that Jim has some of the most beautiful properties. Next time I travel to this area I hope to be able to stay in one of Jim's other properties with my extended family and our dog. Thank you for providing us a wonderful place to stay so we could make this trip one that was full of many memories. "
"Coral Cottage was the absolute PERFECT place to stay in Tybee. Not only was it adorable and decorated so perfectly, but it's location to the beach is fantastic! I really appreciated the fact that the cottage supplied a cart to transport items to the beach.
My fiance and I had a fantastic time...we both keep commenting that it's one of the best vacations we've ever had! Coral Cottage made it that much more amazing."
"Our vacation was great! The beach was great. The food at Sundae Cafe was fantastic and the stay at Coral Cottage was the complete compliment! The cottage was clean, comfortable and welcoming. It was close enough to the beach that we walked. The outside shower was a great way to get all the sand off before entering the cottage. The time was so enjoyable that we asked for an additional two days. Fantastic memories!"
"The cottage was cozy, clean and charming. We loved cooking on the refurbished stove and watching the foot/bike traffic out the kitchen window. Also enjoyed the outside shower and relaxing on the back patio with paper and coffee. We walked and bicycled everywhere on the island so the location is fantastic and quiet for long naps and lots of sleeping."
"Better than expected. Very cozy and quiet. Perfect for 2 people.
"I loved this place! The decor is so inviting and relaxing, and the sun through all the windows was lovely. My only complaint is I do not like the shower -- very small and difficult to do things like shave your legs."
"Always good in the past with Tybee Cottages, it lived up to expectations"
"A last minute trip to Tybee turned into one of the best weekend trips for our family. The location of Coral Cottage was perfect...our kids loved being on the bike path, going to the park, being close to the beach and all the sites. Coral Cottage was the perfect "home" for our family while we were in Tybee. Clean, beautifully decorated and furnished, convenient, and the property manager is quick to respond and accommodating. Our kids keep asking us "when are we going back to Tybee?!?" "
"I felt like I was really on an island and the cottage was like something out of a book I've read. Amazing!"
"WONDERFUL PLACE...ENJOYED THE DECOR AND SIMPLICITY.VERY GOOD LOCATION.VERY CLEAN AND FUNCTIONAL"
"Well deserved 5 stars in any category. Close to a calm(er) part of the beach. Would be 6 stars if in the dining room the chairs is more comfortable and the table stands on an even ground. "
"We had a very nice stay at this cheery, clean cottage with lovely landscaping! Management was timely with bring an extra key...thank you! It was a short walk to the beach and my son and husband enjoyed riding bikes since it was on the bike route. We stay at Tybee every summer for my son to do Sea Camp at the Tybee Science Center. A few suggesstions: stock toilet papert to avoid last minute forays to the IGA, a few beach chairs would be nice, maybe add a few board games or puzzles for rainy days."
"Everything was great."
"The cottage was immaculate and very functional. Loved it!"
"This is an adorable cottage - even cuter than in pictures! We had such a wonderful stay on Tybee at Coral Cottage. It was perfect for my sisters and I! Close to the beach for walks, close to plenty of good eats, and the neighbors (a mix of vacationers and full-time islanders) were so friendly! We will be back. "
"We rented this cottage for a long weekend. It's a great quiet location with a good layout for a small group. The backyard is private, and the house is just 2-3 blocks from the beach. The kitchen is basic but adequate with a very cool, old 60s stove. The bath is tiny with just a shower, but plenty of hot water. Beds were comfortable, but the smaller room could use some heavier window shades since the street light was bright. Very clean!"
"We loved Coral Cottage from the start booking with Jim until the last day. The cottage is perfect for 2 people. Lovely clean and comfortable home. Everything you need is there! The inside bath is tight but the outside shower makes up for it. Easy walking distance to the beach and the beach cart is so helpful. Quiet neighborhood centrally located on the island. Just wonderful!"
"A charming, clean, vintage cottage four blocks from a quiet, family-friendly area of the beach. Who could ask for more?"
" My wife and I had a wonderful experience at Coral Cottage. We felt as comfortable as we do in our own home. The decor, with its bright colors and whimsical coral theme, is beautiful. The layout is wonderful for cooking, sharing a meal, or just relaxing. Our favorite amenities included reliable wi-fi, washer/dryer, the additional outdoor shower, and the beautiful restored stove. It is perfectly situated on a quiet street with an easy walk to the beach.
We were impressed with the friendly people of Tybee and the wonderful food - especially the local shrimp! Restuarant highlights included the Breakfast Club, Sundae Cafe, Social Club, and Fish Camp. We highly recommend Coral Cottage and Tybee Island."
"Relaxing beautiful cottage! Very clean!"
"The cottage was cute, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. My only complaint is that we only had one trash bag to last us for an entire week. Otherwise, it had everything we needed, including gourmet coffee. We enjoyed staying here and highly recommend it. "
"Since Tybee rentals in prime season usually require a weekly minimum, we rented a coach house from another landlord in Savannah for the two nights when we had to be in the area before our weekly stay. When we arrived at the coach house after a near thousand mile drive, there were obvious evidences of rats. Yikes! Faced with having to move places, I chanced a call to Mr. Heflin at Tybee Cottages and after he checked on the status of our cottage, welcomed us to come to Coral Cottage that night. We were very grateful. The cottage is perfect and iof there is the least problem, the management sends someone over to take care of it. It is attractive and what we like is that there are two living areas so one part of the family can watch tv while the other can peacefully read. The street - 2nd Avenue - is perfect for walking or bike riding with very few cars, and its just a couple short blocks to the beach. There is a great gym a couple blocks away in the park. The kitchen is equipped very well, but perhaps for safety reasons, the knives are not large or sharp, so you might bring your fav knify if you plan to cut up fresh fish! Speaking of fresh fish, don't miss Bowie's Fish Market an easy bike ride away... and speaking of bikes, we rent from Tim's, a reasonble and friendly place, which will deliver to your cottage but be clear that you want the bike as new as possible and looked over carefully. We had to take the time to return and exchange two of the bikes due to problems. Tybee Cottages is a certain winner. I did not price cottages this time, since we like Coral and just went for it, but prices have jumped - perhaps everywhere in the last few years. Perhaps this is due to celebs like Sandra Bullock who find "Tybee time" beats Hollywoood or Miami times. I highly recommend Coral and Tybee Cottages. Some day, a master bath addition would be way cool. "
"Awesome! Could not have been better!"
"We absolutely loved our stay in Coral Cottage! We live in Charleston & needed a short get-away before school started. We couldn't have had a better time. The kids shared a bedroom & actually got along (small miracle). Everything we could have possibly needed was there & easy to find. They were accommodating if our late night arrival & made renting the cottage easy. We hope to return next year"
"Our vacation rental was awesome. Jim was top notch and always attended to our needs though there were not many as our cottage was awesome."
"After hurricane Matthew foiled our original vacation plans, we were lucky enough to find this wonderful cottage rental at the last minute! What a gem - It was everything we needed and then some! The property manager was absolutely terrific to work with and assured us they were there for us if we needed anything. But who could possibly need anything when it's all been thought of and taken care for you? Everything you needed was readily available in the rental. Coral Cottage was so nicely renovated, extremely clean and gave us the relaxing atmosphere we were looking for. It's perfectly located on the island - situated on one of the best streets on Tybee for walking and riding bicycles and a simple 5 minute walk to the beach. Perfect! We will definitely be staying at Coral Cottage on our next visit to Tybee Island! Thanks for one for the best relaxing and de-stressing vacations ever!"
"My family had a great experience and would do it again.
Our only concern is that the cottage was over decorated which left little space for our personal belongings."
"Coral Cottage is bright, happy, and beautifully decorated. It was also spotless. I have rented from Tybee Cottages in the past and they consistently provide excellent customer service and lovely homes. "
"This is the sweetest house! Everything is super organized and certainly Jim is the cog that keeps the wheels turning. I would recommend this cottage to any small group visiting Tybee. Just make sure to bring your own beach towels. My only suggestion to the owner is please put nice mattress pads on top of the foam mattress covers for extra coziness. Thank you for sharing your Coral Cottage. "
"The cottage was so cute and clean! We enjoyed the pool every day! "
"I have been going to Tybee for the past 7 years. This was my 2nd stay at the Coral Cottage. For a family size of 4, it is hands down the best property on the island, especially when you consider the condition, the amenities and the location.
And Jim Hefflin at Tybee Cottages is simple the BEST.
"Great stay at a charming Tybee cottage. The interior is adorable. Two sitting areas and pool gave us plenty of room to relax. Good location with sort walk to the beach and restaurants. Perfect for a family of 4."
"Adorable beach cottage. Very clean, loved the decor! Was just a few blocks, short walk, to the beach! Close to restaraunts & shopping. Loved the private backyard pool w/fountain. Very peaceful & relaxing. Neighborhood was quiet. My Mom & I had a wonderful time & thought it was the most perfect place to stay! Jim, the manager was wonderful also. Very pleasant & helpful. Can't wait to come back! Was my 1st trip to Georgia & a beach! Beautiful!"
"So much coastal charm! Super clean, lovely pool and outdoor space as well. 5 minute walk to the beach easy peasy especially with the provided beach wagon.Can't say enough positives...also, the nice and PRIVATE outdoor shower made getting ready so easy as my husband used that, leaving me the inside bath. Two equally charming inside living spaces left me with a spot to read while he enjoyed football on the big screen tv above the fireplace.
Would love to return ?"
"This cottage is absolute perfection!!! The pool is great - the waterfall creates the most relaxing environment. I recently had knee surgery & the walk to the beach was easy, peasy - even for me! Every detail of this cottage is wonderful and the Jim was SUPER responsive! I'd recommend this or any of his cottages to anyone! "
"First time at Tybee Island. This was one of the most relaxing vacations we have taken in a long time! Coral Cottage was wonderful! Jim was very helpful. The cottage was adorable, well maintained and beautifully decorated. We will definitely be back!"
"This cottage was perfect for our anual girls trip to Tybee. We will be booking this same cottage again next year!
The only thing we really thought might makenhe experience a little better would have been hammocks..... theres a perfect spot for two right under the Gazebo :)"
"The Coral Cottage was warm and welcoming. The pool and garden area was very relaxing. The location was great. It was get to anywhere you needed to be in a short time. The cottage was very clean and well equipped. The pool was clean and well maintained. I would recommend Coral Cottage for a lovely vacation or just a weekend away. "
"We loved staying at Coral Cottage. Beautifully decorated and it is well appointed with everything you need for your stay. Great private pool. Close to the beach and on the bike route."
"Tremendous time at Coral Cottage and on Tybee Island! Jim was extremely responsive and helpful before and during our stay. Cottage has everyone you need for a fun and relaxing vacation. Pool was
clean and refreshing. Outdoor shower was so nice when you come back hot and sandy from beach (which is only 2 blocks away). Cottage very nicely decorated. Comfortable beds. Plenty of space to relax. Thank you Jim!"
