Remember your favorite aunt who enjoyed having friends over to eat, drink and tell wonderful stories ( some of them true ) on the porch? Well, she is away in San Francisco or some such and and you are invited to stay at Swan Cottage on Tybee Islands lovely back river.

If you love charming vintage beach houses ( 1930 ) with screen doors in your bare feet you will feel right at home.Four bedrooms ( 2 king , 2 with twins) all bedrooms upstairs. Full baths: 2 upstairs, 2 downstairs ( one is accessible from outside ) Comfy living room furnishings for that relaxing beach vacation. Plenty of room for board games with the family or find the perfect corner for catching up on the reading. Historic heartpine kitchen with a modern gas stove and white appliances, the gallery style does make it a little but that is not where you will spend your time,is it? For goodness sake,spend your time on the porch with a glorious view of the back river and Little Tybee ( maybe spot some sailboats and dolphins ) White wicker furnishings to lounge on and adrondiback chairs to watch that amazing sunset or soak in the water views. If you are feeling energetic, conquer the dune path and dip in the water, or walk around the point to enjoy the ocean side. This I know: you will enjoy some of the best memories and sunsets of your life. The huge wraparound porch is a dream spot in itself!!

Recent Reviews About This Property

"We had a great experience from the great folks at the rental company to the house itself, perfectly position on the dunes of the "Back" River."

Timothy S. from LaCanada, 09/14/2021

"The family loved the location of the property and the full screened in porch. It was perfect to sit in and enjoy each other and view of the water. Water was quiet and enjoyable but was short walk to the other side where the waves were for my grandson. "

Mike K. from Fayette, 08/09/2021

"If you love a throw back in time, this is the best place to be! Vintage Tybee beach house with the dreamiest porch. Right on the back river beach. We loved it!"

Emily S. from , 07/06/2020

"I used to live next door as a child and knew the people that lived in this cottage well. I rented Swan Cottage about 35 years ago for $1,000 a month. I loved it so much that when i developed "cabin fever" at home I decided this cottage would be the best one to escape to."

Anne M. from , 07/06/2020

"We stayed Labor Day weekend! Loved the house and the location!! It is an older house and that is what gives it so much charm! The screen porch is a great place to just sit and relax! You do have to go outside in order to get to the bedrooms upstairs, at first I was not sure how I would like it but turns out it was not a big deal. We had plenty of room and space for our party of 8! I will be staying again!! Tybee Cottages are great to work with!!"

Tara G. from Oxford, 09/28/2019

"Had a blast loved it thx"

Lynn H. from Louisville , 06/15/2019

"very good"

John L. from , 09/20/2018

"We love the location on the river so that we can kayak, swim, explore, etc. We spend most of our time on the screened in porch playing games, having dinner, and just hanging out. The house definitely has character and is perfect for our family. My only complaint would be that the doors sometimes lock someone in a room when a door knob gets stuck and it could use a little bit of a touch up as far as painting and some minor repairs. We love staying here anyway as the location is perfect for us. This is our third year; hoping to be back in 2018."

from , 07/24/2017

"wonderful place we love to come to Tybee. the maintenance was done quickly. Keyhole change not painted, downstairs toilet broken, wiring? "

from Louisville, 06/01/2016

"Wonderful location. Great views! The beds were comfortable but there wasn't a comfortable seat in the house including on the porch. The kitchen is awful the counter, drawers and cabinets are dirty and need to be updated. No surprise there are no pictures of the kitchen on the web site. "

Sheilah B. from Mechanicsville, 08/17/2015

"Our family loved our time at Swan Cottage. The house is perfect for a family get-together at the beach. Most of our time at the house was spent on the amazing porch with sweeping beach and Back River views. The home is very clean and well-maintained and Jim and his staff are very quick to respond when something needs to be fixed. The location is phenomenal; we paddled the Back River but were close enough to easily go to the Atlantic side as well. This is our third trip to this wonderful house, and we plan to return year after year."

Karen H. from Monroe, 06/16/2015

"We had a great time staying at the Swan cottage. The "Back River" of Tybee is one of the best kept secrets on the Georgia coast. The sunsets here are spectacular and the beaches are far more private than on the front beach. The Swan cottage itself has everything that you need for a great getaway. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked, and the wide screened in porch upstairs gives you one of the best sunset views on the island. You can absolutely not go wrong choosing the Swan cottage for your family vacation."

Steve T. from Asheville, 04/14/2015

"The Swan Cottage is fantastic. It has a beautiful porch w/ views of the water and beach. A walk over the dune to the beach. The best location in Tybee. Favorite activities: reading while laying on the porch, swimming, eating at great restaurants, cooking and dining on the porch, sunsets w/ a glass of wine! The house is perfectly charming, clean and comfortable."

Debra S. from , 10/22/2014

"We loved the house! I have a picture of the porch on my ipad home screen. I will rent this house again. Upstairs and downstairs beach facing doors were hard to keep closed just to let you know. The outside shower room was the best shower , I wish I were at the house now ??"

Jane A. from , 08/25/2014

"We had a wonderful stay at Swan Cottage! Bedding was great. Lots of towels. The cottage is large with a wonderful screened in porch that is super big. Look out over the inlet and watch dolphins play!"

from Sugar Grove, 07/31/2014

"Just spent a week with girlfriends at the most amazing beach house-Swan Cottage. Everyone loved the porch with unbelievable views as well as the coziness of the cottage. We enjoyed spending time on the Back River, kayaking and paddling to Little Tybee, the convenience to the ocean side and downtown, and watching the view change from our perch on the porch. We definitely plan to return next year."

Karen H. from Monroe, 06/16/2014

"Great house & location. Loved being able to walk to a little downtown area. Great fun at night ...a little shopping & a little bar hopping. Perfect!"

Susan T. from , 08/22/2013

"We've rented this home twice and really love it. The big upstairs screened in porch is the heart of the house with a great view of the sunset and Little Tybee. We've rented from Tybee Cottages for many years and have always had a positive experience -- Jim and his staff are great. Highly recommended."

from Decatur, 08/08/2013

"Relaxing, beautiful, child friendly and the most gorgeous view, not to mention a great beach with plenty of room to move around without infringing on anyone else's space. I have rented this property several times and it has been fabulous each time. Jim Heflin with Tybee Cottages is very helpful an a pleasure to deal with at all times. Thank you again Jim for a wonderful week at the beach with my family."

Roselyn l. from SAVANNAH, 07/16/2013

"Great view! Loved the screen porch. Mr. Hefflin was great to work with."

Shannon B. from , 07/02/2013

"without a doubt, this is a little touch of paradise."

Joan S. from , 06/10/2013

"We(2 Adults,2 young Kids)loved this house!!!It's located in a great part of the Island and the house was 's an old style Tybee Beach Cottage. We especially enjoyed sitting on the giant wrap around porch,watching the sunset over Little Tybee.Also,the rental agent Jim Heflin is very helpful.We shall return!"

Todd T. from Randolph, 09/20/2012

Towels & sheets very adequit with cleaning supplies, new refrig we had a nice time there and would probable stay again
Rich D. "

Rich D. from , 09/03/2012

"Where to start? The location? Right on the estuary, practically at the southern tip of the island. We actually never walked the few steps to the ocean because the water was perfect right where we were. Savannah was so close we explored its beauty often. Or should I mention the fabulous charm of this cottage? Wonderfully decorated; comfortable beds with quality linens; plenty of places to lounge and take in the incredible views; more than enough space for us to spread out, and there were 8 of us, mostly teenagers and adults. Mr. Heflin, the realtor who was so incredibly helpful? Thank you so much for your quick and kind responses to my many questions -- very appreciated.

Thank you for sharing your home -- the perfect beach house for us to take a break from life and relax and enjoy our children and their friends."

Lisa O. from , 07/30/2012

"My family and friends loved staying at Swan Cottage. The rooms were very comfortable; the house has plenty of baths with showers to accommodate a large group; and the views from the porch were magnificent. We enjoyed watching the changing tides, the human activity on the beach, and most of all, the amazing sunsets from the comfort of our screened porch. We plan to make Swan Cottage our family vacation spot on Tybee for years to come!"

Karen H. from Monroe, 06/13/2012

"This classic beach "cottage" was awesome! They just don't make houses like this anymore with the coolest 2nd-floor, wrap-around, screened, sleeping porch I've ever seen. I'll go back just for the porch that practically sits on top of the beach and gives you the front row view! You don't have to leave the house to experience the sunset, waves, water, gulls... It was wonderful! The house had everything we needed in terms of amenities for cooking at home, watching a movie or playing board games, and town was a short walk, maybe 10 minutes, which was nice. So happy to have had the experience and we look forward to going back!"

Adrian J. from , 04/11/2012

"Beautiful location close to everything."

from lock haven, 04/09/2012

"If you are the easygoing type, this is the perfect rental for an on-the-sand beach vacation. It has plenty of space, an enormous porch with furniture and a gorgeous view, and the owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable."

Michael R. from , 03/20/2012

"Great location for us, have small children and enjoy the waveless back river. Screened upstairs porch was great, a hammock up there would make it wonderful. Great time had by all."

Kathy C. from , 08/25/2011

"Over many years I have rented Swan Cottage in the Spring, Fall and Winter months, The porches, views, sunsets, beach access and house layout make it the best house of all at Tybee...and I have rented others so I know what I am talking about."
