About the property

Welcome to this stunning cottage, a true gem built in 1935 and lovingly preserved by renowned preservationist Jane Coslick. In 1996, it was moved and saved from demolition, becoming one of her first remarkable rescues, and its timeless charm and beauty were even showcased on the cover of Coastal Living in 2000.

As you ascend the steps to the welcoming screened-in porch, you'll be greeted by quaint and colorful beach decor, setting the perfect tone for a delightful stay. The porch offers a variety of seating options and tables, inviting you to lounge, relax, and soak in the serene atmosphere.

Step inside this sophisticated cottage, all on one level, and be captivated by the warm wood floors, abundant natural light, and delightful splashes of local art throughout. The open sitting, dining, and kitchen area seamlessly blend together, creating a harmonious space for gatherings. A TV and a dining table accommodating up to 5 guests ensure entertainment and dining pleasure.

A small bedroom, tucked off the living room, features two twin beds, offering comfort and privacy with the convenience of a privacy curtain. The master bedroom boasts a queen bed and a full bath with a tub/shower ensuite, providing a serene retreat for relaxation. Additionally, there is a convenient hallway half bath for added comfort.

Outside, a small open back porch awaits sun enthusiasts, adorned with two hand-painted Adirondack chairs, offering a perfect spot to bask in the warm rays. The porch overlooks the shady fenced-in back yard, where you'll find an outdoor shower and a charming picnic table, creating an idyllic setting for enjoying outdoor moments.

Wonderful wee cottage

Black Mountain NC

Overall Comment

This is the second time I have stayed in Palm Cottage. It’s extremely comfortable with a screened in porch and small side yard for sitting and grilling. Even has an outdoor shower which is a plus for me in the summer. It’s best suited to a couple as you can close the bedroom door. The second bedroom just has a privacy curtain and twin beds- suitable for children. The house was clean with an ample supply of towels. I highly recommend this property. Short walk to the beach and small IGA grocery store.

My childhood friend and I had a wonderful few days together in this well-furnished vintage cottage. The beds were comfortable with plenty of extra pillows and blankets. There were lots of extra towels, and the kitchen had everything necessary and more. Close to the beach. The neighborhood was well maintained - perfect for walking and biking. Grocery store two blocks away. It was a comfortable drive to Savannah for great shopping and dining. We would recommend Palm Cottage.

The perfect, most charming cottage for our family of 4!

Williamsport OH

Overall Comment

We had a wonderful stay at the Palm Cottage! We arrived the last week in July so as soon as we opened the door, the AC was blasting and couldn't have felt better! The cottage was everything and more! Beautiful decor, extremely and I mean extremely clean, and just wonderfully kept. It was BEAUTIFUL! Everything was provided, we only needed food of course :) Much bigger than what I expected it to be. My young teenagers enjoyed their private part of the cottage w their own beds. The books, games and such were a wonderful addition which they enjoyed. Such a short walk to the beach and the IGA. I do recommend reserving a golf cart as soon as you arrive. Tybee Golf Carts rental were very friendly and accomodating. We found it the best way to see the entire island, especially the lighthouse, and getting to most restaurants (especially Huckapoo's).
If I may, one upgrade I suggest (small, but needed) is to put new temperature dials on the stovetop. They have all but disappeared. When using multiple burners, it became difficult remembering how hot the settings were of each item. But, overall an incredible stay! I highly recommend! A wonderful vacation and lots of memeories made for our family! Do not look elsewhere.

This quaint cottage was perfect for our family of 4. The screened in porch was relaxing and a great way to enjoy the island atmosphere. My family enjoyed every minute at the cottage and we plan on returning again. The cottage may look small next to other rental houses around it, but it felt spacious and functional. I recommend anyone wanting to enjoy the island life to stay at this perfect little cottage. My family voted this vacation the best one so far and it's hard to please teenagers.

Lovely stay in a cute cottage

Atlanta GA

Overall Comment

My fiancé and I stayed here for three nights recently and really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is in a great location - about a 10 minute walk to the beach and a 25 minute drive to downtown Savannah. We really enjoyed getting to eat breakfast on the screened-in porch every morning. The only thing I wish we had known ahead of time is that the curtains are all sheers, including in the bedroom, and there are no curtains on the doors to the porch. This means the cottage gets lots of natural light during the day, but it can make it hard to sleep in. I recommend bringing a sleep mask and a robe. The washer and dryer are small but worked well, and the closet in the bedroom was well-stocked with towels.

my kind of place

Overall Comment

Tybee is different from southern beach communities. The city does not allow high rises and numerous historic cottages have been saved and turned into rentals. They are part of actual neighborhoods where real people live. There is a picturesque historic fort and a lighthouse. Tybee is not therefore one of the highrise condo towns nor is it a Seaside type upscale planned community. You have to be careful renting. We have been renting from a friendly and helpful guy named Jim Heflin for several years. But he just sold it and we are not sure how his successor will handle things. I made some suggestions to the new manager but never heard back. Palm cottage is perfect for a couple and their child or for just a couple - we have done both. I do not recommend it for more people than that; It is on Second Ave which is a bike path street with little traffic. Palm cottage is a couple blocks and an easy walk or bike ride to the beach. It has a pleasant screen porch, a decent living room, an outdated kitchen which we used every night for cooking fish dinners, an adequate bathroom, a tiny half bath, a queen bed (prefer king but this one is comfortable) and two twin beds off the living room. Don’t go there thinking it is all perfect. Go there if you like ‘character’ and laid back slightly eclectic living. We will go back to Palm Cottage and recommend it highly even with the above comments. It needs a general update but given the choice of no update and the current price or update and a higher price, Im fine with Palm the way it is. Highly recommend Tim’s bikes they deliver to the cottage; the beach is fun to bike on at low tide (only). We stock up on fresh fish at the historic Russo fish market in Savannah and add food at Whole Foods and try to cook all meals at our cottage. You may find a place you like for dining on Tybee but the restaurants and grocery stores are not our favorites. Despite my comments Tybee and Palm are our kind of place.

Response from Tybee Cottages

HI Jim THANK YOU so much for the feedback. We will certain miss Jim in his retirement buy I assure you we will take the best of care to you.

The location is wonderful (just 4 blocks to the beach, and about the same to south end restaurants and shops) and the decor/vibe is lovely. Terrific porch and nice yard. Being particular, the kitchen is in need of a bread knife and some overall organization in the cupboards, and new beach chairs are in order (several are bent or broken).

We stayed at the Palm Cottage and found it to be centrally located to all the things we wanted to do in Tybee. It was .3 miles to the beach.

We loved every minute of staying at the Palm Cottage. The walk to the beach was shorter than we expected. The road barely had traffic other than bikes and golf carts. It was so quiet in the evenings and peaceful. The cottage was clean and exactly what we expected for a cottage built in the 40's. We would definitely stay again. We only had 2 people but a family of 4 could comfortably fit in this home. You won't regret staying here!

we cannot say enough about how great our stay was at the Palm Cottage. The home was clean and so welcoming for a long travel from St. Louis. Our 3 year old was delighted at her own space, in the front of the cottage there is a cute little room with 2 twin beds perfect for little ones to play and sleep. The screened in porch area was definitely our favorite place to be after a long day at the beach, perfect if mosquitoes love you and the last thing you want to do is load up on bug spray to enjoy the outdoors at sun down. This home was really perfect for our family of 3 and one of our favorite places to stay to date after coming to tybee for the last 20 years.

We really liked the Palm Cottage. We have stayed in other places on Tybee, and unlike many houses labeled cottages, the Palm Cottage is a true cottage, which for us was a plus. We really enjoyed the screened porch and adjacent deck, spending most of our time there.

I cannot speak too highly of Jim Heflin. His consideration in helping us avoid major traffic problems in Savannah was above and beyond the call of duty. What could have been a fiasco for us was completely eliminated with Jim's help.

We are likely to rent the Palm Cottage again in the future, and we would recommend it to all.

After an eight year hiatus, I returned to Tybee Island and stayed at the Palm Cottage (1208 Second Avenue). It was a very enjoyable stay and the Palm Cottage was as delightful as I remembered it from years past. The cottage was very clean and well-maintained, as neat as a pin. The cottage is located just a short walk to the beach which makes it so nice. I enjoyed the beach and the pavilion for people watching. The food at Spanky's and Sting Ray's was very good. The visit to Fort Pulaski was very interesting and informational as well. I purchased souvenairs at Waves which has very nice merchandise and I my favorite store in Tybee Island. I had good customer service with Jim Heflin via phone conversation and e-mails. I only wished that I had seen Jim in person. Hopefully, I will return to Tybee Island next year and stay at the quaint Palm Cottage. I definitely would recommend this property to any friend or relative.

We absolutely adored Palm Cottage! It really feels like another place to call "home". The location is great and the homes surrounding are well kept, making us feel even more comfortable in an otherwise unfamiliar location. The IGA is close by and the beach is fairly close, too. We sat on the screened porch several times. Something we were not prepared for-- the storm sirens sound with even a thunderstorm. Being from Oklahoma (we have tornadoes), this was especially nerve racking. I really wish there would have been some information on a local weather channel to watch or additional information on severe weather in the binder provided in the cottage. Also, there was no additional toilet paper or additional trash bags left for the duration of our stay (5 nights). I'm not sure if that's just something we should have been prepared to bring. Other than those little things, we really enjoyed our stay and loved visiting Tybee!

The cottage was better than the pictures. I loved the Jane Coslick design, it is gorgeously bright and welcoming. Everything worked and is in good "cottage" shape. Loved the comfy slipcovered chairs inside and the quiet space on the back deck.The master bedroom was simply stunning & the bed was very comfortable. Lots of design books, Southern Living and O magazines to look at when having your tea or coffee on the back deck in the morning sun. Access to the beach is a mere few blocks away, easy walk. Two things I would suggest, perhaps its time for a new larger flat screen tv to replace the one in the bedroom & though the cottage was neat, it really could use a thorough cleaning (fans, lights, and especially kitchen & bathroom cupboards & door frames). One of those white Mr.Clean Magic Erasers would do a perfect job. That being said, I would stay at Palm Cottage the next time hands down. Its a real old school cottage with a fantastic history. Lastly, Property Management was perfect, considerate and professional, even leaving a hand written note for my arrival. Until next time.....cheers.

We enjoyed our stay at The Palm Cottage and Tybee Island/ beach. It was walking distance to the beach and local food store. It could use a good dusting of the lamps, and ceiling fans. While we were there the lawn was cut. Not sure why because all they did was blow dust and dirt onto the covered, screened in porch. Instead the grounds could use a good raking, (landscaping) so guests could enjoy the outdoor space.

Palm Cottage Stay

Fort Collins CO

Overall Comment

Overall, a very nice getaway! Cottage was located in a quiet neighborhood in a convenient location. Positives: nature abounds - we had chickadees and thrashers nesting on the property; many other birds sang and lizards and squirrels made appearances as well. Easy walk to beaches, wonderful sunsets viewed from Venetian Drive, close to IGA. Cottage was perfect for a couple, loved the screened porch. Negatives: Disappointed in restaurants and shopping options; Sunset Cafe was really the only good restaurant we encountered, shops were not unique and did not feature quality merchandise. We enjoyed kayaking, Fort Pulaski and the Tybee Lighthouse, but felt activities were somewhat limited. In the cottage, the master bathroom toilet sometimes ran at night, we had to purchase our own toilet paper and Kleenex, and the neighbor's dog was a bit noisy at night, but really these items did not deter from our overall wonderful cottage experience!

A peek at Spring on Tybee Island

The cottage was just as advertised, quaint, cozy and very clean. The amenities served our purposes. The proximity to the beach and Savannah made our visit pleasant. Although we know you can't control it, our only complaint would be the weather.

More a review of management since we actually didn't stay here...

Overall Comment

We ended up at the last second being moved over to a different property due to something unforeseen so unfortunately I cannot give it a proper review. That being said we were properly taken care of by Jim and the folks at Tybee Cottages and loved the cottage house we did stay in. Jim was very responsive answering questions and the whole experience was great. Will look to do it again.

Charming Cottage Experience.

We loved being in a such a pretty cottage as it gave us so much more freedom and room. Palm Cottage was absolutely charming and we would stay there again. The location was perfect; close to everything but off the main road. We had a wonderful time and hope to return some day.

Cosy cottage, a home from home!

London London

Overall Comment

We walked straight into palm cottage and immediately felt like we were home.

Indeed it is a sweet little cottage on a quiet tree lined street, and only a few minutes walk from the beach.

Rent a bike to explore the island and relax into the tybee way of life!


- fun/ quirky decor, very in keeping with the local feel
- lots of books and magazines to keep you busy while relaxing on....
- a lovely screened in porch
- washer/ dryer and good Wifi
- great space for a couple with a baby, but would also be good with older kids

- the second twin bedroom doesn't have a door, so it would be hard to get young children to bed just off the kitchen/ dining area
- appliances are a little outdated ( all in working order though) and no dishwasher ( not a problem to us, but worth noting)
- seemed just a little bit cluttered ( maybe could do with clearing out some excess without removing the quirky knick knacky charm)

All said, I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to visit Tybee Island!

Charming cottage - Great location

Rogers MN

Overall Comment

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at the Palm Cottage. The reservation process and arrival were smooth and just as advertised! The location was fantastic with all areas on Tybee within walking distance. The cottage itself was basic but all necessary amenities were included/available. It is an older cottage with plenty of charm.

This is the perfect little cottage for a few days or week of relaxation on our beautiful Tybee. Great location and quiet neighborhood. The screened porch is great for sitting at night and listening to all the night sounds and watching the bike riders go by. Love this cottage.

Beautiful time on our Honeymoon

Menomonie WI

Overall Comment

We had an amazing stay at Palm Cottage for our Honeymoon. The cottage was exactly as described on the rental website (clean, cozy, nicely decorated, and actually a little bigger than expected). The beach and restaurants were a minute's walk away. Great memories and a perfect relaxing atmosphere; would highly recommend both Tybee Island and the Palm Cottage to honeymooners and families alike.

Perfect for couples!

Lilburn Georgia

Overall Comment

We stayed at the beginning of October and the weather was fabulous! The first thing I did was open the transom windows & turned off the a/c. A must! (besides, I'm 6'4" and my wife is 5'3"- she can't reach!) We kayaked twice, walked the neighborhood, went to the beach daily. and generally loafed around. This cottage is perfectly situated 3 blocks from the mid-beach area and 2 blocks from the grocery store. The Tybee Cottages folks are great & easy to work with. This is THE place we try to rent and you should, too!

Screened porch. Exactly as advertised. Just like I picture a cottage when I think of a cottage. Highly recommend!!

The Honeymoon we never had

Overall Comment

My wife and I made this rental for our son and his new wife for their Honeymoon. 26 years ago this month we were married. We had a very modest honeymoon which was special in our own way, but we wanted to give them more. They loved the house, the location, and were thrilled with their stay. This was a gift to us to see their joy and happiness. Also Jim Heflin the rental agent we dealt with was GREAT in every way. He made everything easy and helped us assure they had a great experience. He was the BEST!!!

Tybee time

Overall Comment

My wife (Sheila) and I really enjoyed our stay. It was so relaxing to enjoy a home made breakfast before strolling to the beach to spend the morning and early afternoon. It had all the conveniences of home including a washer and dryer, which came in handy since I only brought one pair of short pants with me. we also enjoyed sitting out on the deck listening to the cardinals. The outdoors shower is also nice when coming in from the beach. The weather called for daily showers but they never interfered with out plans. We loved the Palm Cottage. We would definitely go back.
