About the property

Follow the gravel path to this four-bedroom cottage, complete with a screened-in, wrap-around porch and private access to the beach. Days spent here involve porch swings, washing sand from your toes, and sharing the sunset with loved ones. Walk up to the porch and step back in time as you enter into your very own charming Tybee cottage. You'll notice the jade green trim throughout the house, along with a well-loved collection of beach decor and family heirlooms. For those looking for a place to truly relax and reconnect with loved ones, 1923 By The Sea is for you.

The kitchen has kept some of its most charming features from the original design, but incorporates modern amenities to make your vacation a breeze. Past the kitchen rests the formal dining area with seating for six. Adjacent, the living room with plenty of places to sit and carry conversation with your group. A flat screen TV and shelves full of books are both perfect remedies for a rainy afternoon.

All four bedrooms occupy the rest of the home, with full bath with tub/shower combo on the first level. However, each bedroom comes with an original wash sink, which makes getting ready much more convenient. The first bedroom hosts a Queen size bed, outfitted with two large dressers and relaxing views of the front porch. Window shades allow for privacy from the outside. The second bedroom is across the hall and holds a pair of Double size beds, while the remaining two bedrooms are each furnished with a pair of twin beds. Tall ceilings and a ceiling fan can be expected in each bedroom, along with ample room to unpack your suitcase and feel right at home. On the ground level, two shower rooms, in addition to another bathroom - plenty of space for everyone in the group! A washer and dryer can also be found on the ground level. Access to the wrap-around porch can be found off the dining room and the front entry. Spend each evening with a glass of wine as the screens protect you from the elements. A private path (open to neighboring homes but not the public) to the beach begins towards the back of the home.

Wonderful Vacation

Sunman IN

Overall Comment

Staying at 1923 By The Sea was like stepping back in time. Located right on the beach, it was a perfect place for our extended family to reunite for days beginning with sunrise walks on the beach, nights enjoying stunning sunsets (from the other side of the island), and unforgettable “porch sitting” where we played cards or just sat around and talked. Although it was hard to find the drive to enter the property, that also added to the appeal as the property is surrounded by mature trees giving it a private and secluded feel in what I’m sure is a busy tourist town.

Back on Tybee Time

Stone Mountain GA

Overall Comment

1923 by the Sea is old, well loved, unpretentious, and comfortable... just like Tybee.
It’s not modern, but it had all we needed.
It’s crooked, but clean and cozy... the porch is great!
Best of all is proximity to the beach... you just walk out the back door and over the private crosswalk to the water.
We’ll stay again!

Great Place!

Overall Comment

We really enjoyed staying at 1923 By the Sea for the week! Great location, within walking distance to the pier, shops, and restaurants. Short walk over the dunes to the beach. It was great for us!

Beautiful old cottage could use a heavy dose of TLC


Overall Comment

My family has stayed here many times but we probably won't again until we can be sure everything will work properly (hot water had funky smell at first, dishwasher never worked during our 5 days), certain upgrades have happened (sister got locked in her bedroom because the ancient doorknob was broken), and we'll arrive to a cottage whose floors have been scrubbed clean, and the porch and porch furniture have been wiped down. It's a shame because this place is incredibly charming and beautifully and conveniently situated.

Beautiful historic home

Overall Comment

We enjoyed our stay at 1923 By The Sea. We loved the charm that an old home provides. It was quintessential Tybee. The oak tree lot is gorgeous - and rare on Tybee. We enjoyed family time inside and out on the porch. We walked 13th Street for beach access which was a short walk.

Old, charming, Southern beach cottage. Emphasis on old.


Overall Comment

We had a very enjoyable family vacation in this old Beach property. There is no view of the ocean or Beach but a short walk across a dune path to a beautiful Beach. The place is very clean but very old. We had basically zero contact with the management company but there was no need to be in touch with them either.

Quaint Cottage by the Ocean

Maybrook NY

Overall Comment

Overall we loved the location of the stay. Loved the screened in porch, that was a huge highlight. But the walk to the ocean was not the easiest, especially for an older person, the outlets and beds REALLY need to be updated, and do not be fooled when other reviews mention the beach equipment. They are old, broken ones that are left behind. If they just invested in 4-5 good chairs and 2 umbrellas it would be perfect.

Perfect One of a Kind Beach House

Anchorage AK

Overall Comment

Beautiful historic home! The screened in porch was great for relaxing. The proximity to the beach was great. We were able to walk the beach each morning. House came well supplied with linens and towels. Basement had plenty of beach chairs etc. Could use some new mattresses but other than that it was a fantastic rental. 100% would stay again.

My family, friends, and I thoroughly enjoyed our Tybee vacation. This lovely, historic cottage, tucked behind the dunes and natural landscaping, is a unique place. Most of our time was spent on the large screened porch and on the gorgeous beach.

Perfect Getaway

Overall Comment

Awesome location with private access to the beach and an easy walk to IGA to pick up any supplies we needed. The downstairs showers were perfect for coming up from the beach to shower and the screened-in porch was perfect for hanging out in the evenings after a long day at the beach. The house was well equipped with everything we needed and had plenty of room for the 9 of us to spread out and sleep comfortably. Would definitely recommend to anyone else coming to Tybee.

1923 By The Sea: Beautiful vintage home

Overall Comment

This is a wonderful old house full of vintage Character. Up to date appliances in kitchen. Washer and dryer quite old but still working. Loads of character in this house. Kitchen is very well stocked. Plenty of dishes, silverware, pots, pans and many other items. Everything was clean. Extra linens, towels and even several beach towels. Several beach chairs, sand toys, beach umbrellas & wave boards. Beds are bouncy but comfortable.
The screened back porch area is absolutely amazing. We spent a lot of time there and the beach. Beach access is wonderful . The walkway through dunes was beautiful but tough for this ol lady. Beach was not crowded.
The outside shower and the 2 in basement area are very convenient and clean. There is another nice and convenient bathroom down there not listed.
Location to downtown is very good. But sets back off road so no traffic noises. Plenty of parking for vehicles.
All in all this is a great vintage home. We had a wonderful stay.
