About the property

Doc Holiday Cottage is a truly exquisite cottage that exudes timeless charm. Originally built in 1930, it was thoughtfully restored and adorned by renowned preservationist and designer Jane Coslick.

Inspired by the captivating allure of the sea, this cozy and sophisticated cottage serves as a dreamy retreat for families and friends alike. The porches are adorned with cheery and bright elements, providing ample space for enjoying coffee in the morning or cocktails in the evening.

Inside, the home welcomes you with fresh furnishings and stylish light fixtures that infuse a sense of peace and vibrant coastal energy. The inviting living room beckons, leading to a spacious dining area and three beautifully appointed bedrooms. The fully equipped kitchen boasts thoughtful amenities conveniently arranged to meet all your cooking and entertaining needs. For casual gatherings, the breakfast bar offers seating for five, perfect for savoring snacks, appetizers, and refreshing summertime drinks.

The first bedroom is a custom-designed bunk room featuring two twin beds and a high-top dresser that maximizes space. This breathtaking home also presents two King master bedrooms, each with a private bath. The first main bedroom opens to a full bath with a shower/tub combo, while the second master boasts a private porch, a full bath, and a luxurious walk-in shower. An additional half bath and a walk-in laundry room, complete with a full-size washer and dryer, add to your convenience.

On the home's first level, you'll find the best of both worlds – a beautifully bricked patio with seating for four under an umbrella and a gas grill for delightful outdoor meals. An additional screened-in porch comfortably accommodates ten guests for entertaining and dining al fresco.

To enhance your experience, a luxurious private saltwater pool awaits on the other side of the property, thoughtfully enclosed by a privacy fence and adorned with plenty of loungers to bask in the warm Tybee sun.

Doc Holiday boasts a stellar location on 2nd Avenue, just steps from the beach, enchanting walking paths, bike trails, tempting restaurants, and captivating local attractions. Whether you seek relaxation or adventure, this charming cottage offers everything in one unforgettable package.

The Doc Holiday was the perfect spot for our group to enjoy all that Tybee has to offer. The place was neat, clean and had everything we needed to stay in and have a meal together. It was also so easy to walk to all the great restaurants and beaches. The property manager responded to text messages right away and was very helpful. If you are looking for a fun rental that is centrally located to all that Tybee has to offer, this is the place.

We loved Doc Holiday. This was our 4th visit to Tybee. We have always rented thru Tybee Cottages. This was the cleanest pool of any house we have ever stayed in Georgia, Florida or Alabama. Doc has everything you need, even a cheese grater--hey sometimes it's the little things that make you feel like you are at home. The property is very well maintained and loved.

House was perfect for our 10 day stay! We are regulars to the island and have been coming simce I was a kid. This house is by far our favorite! We LOVED the porch, easy access to the park, quick walk to the beach, quiet street, decor, and of course the pool! My favorite is the old captans door for the bathroom. We are going to stay next year and many years to come. My daughter LOVED the bunk beds and the opportunities for sleepovers with her cousins. Thank you for letting us stay here and being a part of our family memories!

We (family of two adults, 5 yo, 3 yo, and a 1 yo) stayed with another family (two adults, 5 yo and 3 yo) and had a wonderful time despite cold weather. The heated pool was wonderful! The under house provided great run around space to play. The inside was so clean and the kids bunks were great. The living space was a bit small for all of us, but we were still all very comfortable. We were able to get one pack n play in one of the rooms for the 1 yo baby. Overall great place and would definitely stay again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Doc Holiday. We ended up here on Tybee Island for our honeymoon, which was relocated from the Bahamas due to covid. We wanted a house with some space so that we could relax and cook in and just spend time together. Doc Holiday had everything we needed, the check in process couldn't have been easier, and the entire trip was wonderful. I would highly recommend this cottage and this company to anyone looking for a place to stay on Tybee Island.

Doc Holiday Cottage is the best! We usually stay in large houses on the beach side of Butler Avenue. This year due to COVID we opted for something smaller. We were so happy with our choice. Doc Holiday is the perfect Tybee cottage. The screened porch was the highlight. Sitting and watching people enjoy Memorial Park and ride by on bicycles was so relaxing. The location to the beach was wonderful. The Cottage feels very spacious and the outdoor space offers lots of room to spread out. I will definitely be staying at Doc Holiday Cottage again and again.

We settled in quickly to the charming and colorful Doc Holiday cottage making it our home away from home for the week. We enjoyed prepping family meals and snacks in the well appointed kitchen, sleeping in comfy beds, and used the screened porches as extra living and gathering space. Every nook was decorated with a colorful beachy vibe against a backdrop of shiplap, and pastels making photo ops easy! The outdoor shower gave the teen boys a place to clean up after the beach days. We used the washer and dryer every day to keep our clothes fresh and ready. It was a wonderful experience overall!

I cannot say enough good things about our stay at the Doc Holiday Cottage! First and foremost the place is adorable! You can tell that whoever decorated this cottage put great care into it. The kitchen was well stocked and comfortable to cook in (we had Easter dinner here). The beds are not your run of the mill cheap mattresses. They are nice, soft and good quality. In fact, my husband wants to change ours at home to what they have. The location is perfect for kids - the park is across the street! (bring your own basketball/volleyball/soccerball) and my personal favorite the screened in porch with the couch. It was perfect for early morning coffee and late night wine! Enjoy, we certainly did!

The most perfect beach mini-vacation for my two daughters, two granddaughters and myself! The house is exactly what we were looking for!It's more adorable than the description says! But we think anything that has Jane Coslick's stamp on it is just about perfect! She knows her colors and where they work. When we arrived we noticed how spotless the house was. The layout of the house is great. I decided while there that I could live in this house forever, that's true of any of the houses. Jim, with Tybee Vacation Rentals was the best to work with...Thanks! Will see you soon hopefully!!

We have rented the Doc Holiday cottage twice - each for a week. We had excellent stays both times. The house is spotless and is beautifully decorated. Clean enough to put you at ease, but not so fancy that you can't kick your feet up on the cocktail table. Ideal spot for relaxation. Excellent location - great for lounging around at the beach or taking day trips to Savannah. Loved the outdoor shower, the good sized kitchen and the overall layout of the house. We were surprised to see the house had gotten even better in year 2 with new outdoor furniture and additional kitchen amenities (hello crockpot!). Jim at the agency was responsive, organized and helpful (even when we locked ourselves out...he brought us keys).

We had a wonderful time. We stayed the week of 7/5-7/13 with my husband, three boys and my Husband's mother. Everyone loved their personal space. We have three boys and they loved the bunk room - they used the outdoor shower and the hall bath so it was perfect! My MIL loved her special suite with her own private screened porch - she read out there every night. The Master Bedroom with the nice bath was perfect for my husband and myself - a great cozy cottage!

The house felt like home and we were truly sad to leave. The kitchen was perfect - we had everything we needed- loved the big pot for our Low Country Boil!

We lived on the screen porch every night - we enjoyed having the twinkle lights on and watching the bikers and golf carts go by. Perfect spot for a post beach cocktail and relaxing reading!

The house was meticulously maintained. It was spotless and every need was taken care of immediately by Tybee Cottages. Jim Heflin was a pleasure to work with!!

We hope to get back very soon!!

We had the privilege of staying at Doc Holiday's cottage for 5 nights in August. From the initial planning phase, Jim Heflin was extremely helpful when we were trying to pick a cottage that best suited our needs. The cottage was absolutely perfect. It was stocked with everything we needed & more. The beds were so comfy. The beach decor was quaint and inviting. A very short walk to the beach and we found that our side of the beach was not as crowded as the pier side which was great. We did not want to leave and would've stayed another night if it had not already been booked by another party. We are already planning our return for next year. Thank you for an absolutely perfect family getaway.

This cottage is lovely with so many quaint details. It was so clean and tidy. The kitchen is well appointed. The linens we nice and soft and the towels were plentiful. We traveled with young children and they loved the bunk bed room with the individual reading lights. The other two bedrooms were both great- it is nice they each have their own bathroom. The screened porch is excellent to relax on. The cottage is right next to a park, on a bike route and very close to the beach.
The management company was accommodating with our requests and quick and friendly in all communications.
We were very pleased with everything and will consider returning again if we come back to Tybee.

What is there NOT to say about the Doc Holiday Cottage. We couldn't have imagined a better place to stay for our 10 year anniversary and we can't wait to go back and bring the kiddos along as well. The cottage was VERY clean and the towels smelled so good. There was even fresh cut flowers awaiting in the vases. The beds were very comfy. The cottage was very nice and decorated from top to bottom. Every detail has been thought about and done so nice that it makes you feel at home. Another great thing that we were surprised with was the parking. We were able to park our jeep with the top and doors off and lock it in the under part of the cottage. The outdoor grilling area and shower are very nice. Overall I can't tell you how impressed we were with the cottage. To top it off the property manager was VERY nice and we were VERY happy with the service we received. We can't wait to return to the cottage. Thanks again for a wonderful 10 year anniversary.
