We had a family reunion there after a Savannah wedding. It was phenomenal! Wonderful common areas to master and relax: nice living room, large dining room table, large kitchen, fabulous screened/enclosed porch, and lovely deck. More downstairs too. The location was perfect - right on the beach, especially good for small children, and just a few steps from the IGA. We had 4 couples, so the 4 full baths were fantastic.

Overall Comment

Our stay at Twelfth and Ocean was peaceful and relaxing. Morning walks on the beach followed by reading on the screened in porch were the highlight of our days. Easy parking at the house and a short walking distance to the market and a nearby coffee shop were also very nice as you have to pay to park on the street in Tybee. The kitchen was well stocked and plenty of clean, fluffy bath towels for all of us.

We had some minor issues upon getting to the house as we had been provided the incorrect code to get into the house and the information book had the wrong wifi password. We were able to clear these things up fairly quickly.

Response from Tybee Cottages

Katie, thank you for your understanding with the code and the password. They have certainly been taken care of. We are glad to hear you did enjoy the house and your Tybee time. Hope to see you back soon, Denise & the TC Team

Beautiful home, beautiful views, and a wonderful beach (just perfect, some people but not overcrowded). The only grocery store on the island just down one block was really nice too. We loved the house, and there was an "indoor connection to both levels," which I didn't think we'd have but we did. So that was a pleasant surprise! Plenty of parking and a great place to have a vacation!

This was our first visit to Tybee Island. The house's view of the ocean and its location close to both the beach and downtown met our expectations. There is a nice screened-in porch and an outdoor deck with ocean views.

We had a few minor issues that the management company took care of right away, so I was impressed with their customer service.

I will definitely stay at this house again when our extended family visits Tybee Island.

Canfield OH

Overall Comment

We had an enjoyable week at the beach. This property is right next to the walkway to the beach — very convenient and can't get closer. The screened porch regularly caught a breeze off the ocean, keeping it much cooler than outside. The place is simply spacious — plenty of room for all to spread out. Tybee Island has a small-town atmosphere but 20 minutes away is historic Savannah with the wonderful squares to explore. If you visit Tybee Island, take the time to explore the lighthouse. The dolphin tour was a blast. We also enjoyed visiting the Post Theater which had a Rolling Stones tribute band performing a COVID-19 delayed show.

Overall Comment

Location, Location, Location we chose this property because of it's Location along with the size, bed rooms, bathroom, view and did I mention Location "GREAT". We also chose this property because it was away from the big crowds but not far the restaurants and stores. Because of our nations current situation (COVID) we didn't want to be around allot of people and this was perfect. The only reason I rated satisfaction a 4 out of 5 stars was due to the city deciding to close the bridge to the beach for repairs, had nothing to do with the property. Hopefully when we return and we will return all the repairs will be done. Oh by the way the staff was very professional, helpful and nice so sorry I can't remember their names very nice friendly people. Thank you for the get away...

Response from Tybee Cottages

Sam, It was a pleasure working with you. Thank you for being so understanding about the closing of the crossover bridge. We were as surprised as you. The work will be completed by April 10th. We hope you come back to see us when your schedule allows. Tybee Cottages Staff

I have been going to Tybee Island for 52 years! Since we became grandparents, we have reserved a house on the island. This was the 10th year. This is by far the best house for us... We have 6 granddaughters ages 15 through 2 and the rooms downstairs were perfect....even has a kitchen and laundry room! Perfect! The location is the best! A very convenient boardwalk just steps from the house made trips to the beach easy and safe for everyone! Also, the grocery store is just a minute away! Perfect! The large sunroom on the second story was divine! Sunrise in the morning and sunset in the afternoon. We will be reserving this perfect beach house each year!????????????

Charming Family Beach Cottage

Marietta Ga

Overall Comment

This is our second and most delightful stay at this charming beach cottage. Number 2 Twelfth Street is now our family's home away from home. Three generations stayed together for a family reunion and family wedding with plenty of room for the week's stay.The home is perfect for all ages with the two separate living areas- the young adults hung out downstairs when they wanted their space. The whole family most enjoyed the giant screened in porch-sipping coffee in the rockers while watching the sunrise to playing board games during the afternoon rainstorms.
The amenities were all well stocked-we did not need to bring a thing. There were plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, beach towels and all the beach toys a family needs. The mid-island location is within walking distance to lots of great restraunts including the Social and the IGA Supermarket. The property mangers are fabulous and treated us better than family-very prompt, efficient, and courteous.
This home has won our hearts and we will definitely return! In fact, we would consider buying this home for our retirement years if it were ever to go on the market.

We had a great time from start to finish. The children loved the lower level where they could get away from the "old" folks. Would stay again without hesitation. When we had a slight problem with the stove, the response was immediate and pleasant and taken care of within two hours. Loved AJ's restaurant and appreciated the short walk to the IGA. Only recommendation would be to put reflective tape on the leading edges of the front steps. Hope to see Tybee again soon.

Overall Comment

Renting from Jim is always easy and you know the place will be clean. 2 Twelfth St has a great view and very easy beach access. The set up is great for multiple families since the downstairs is it's own little apt but still connected to upstairs. The only problem we had was lots of mosquitos in the yard because there was a lot of standing water in the street in front of the house. This isn't Jim's fault but one family member counted over 200 bites on his body. YIKES! The other inconvenience is the owners leave you no beach chairs, umbrellas or any other fun toys! They don't advertise it so I wasn't expecting it but it would be nice. Overall I highly recommend anything Tybee Cottages has to offer. We have stayed with them several times and will do so again!

Everything we had hoped for and more.

Overall Comment

We recently stayed at 2 Twelfth Street for our family vacation - seven adults and boys nine and 12. It is a cottage-style home with a wonderful, large screened-in porch and deck from which we had a full ocean view and sound of the surf. The "feel" of the house is truly coastal cottage - airy, comfortable, and a bit nostalgic.

The ground floor "apartment" with its own light-duty kitchen, bedrooms, and living area gave us the ability to "spread out" from the main upstairs. (Additional lighting would be welcome in the living area downstairs.) Being able to go upstairs from this lower floor directly to the screened-in porch rather than through the house was good for early risers.

The main upstairs is so well-arranged and well-appointed. We especially loved the fully-equipped kitchen because we ate at home several times during the week. Speaking of which, the island's sole grocery store is literally two blocks away. The design of the living room and large family dining table opening right on to the screened-in porch made the upstairs such a wonderful indoor-outdoor space.

The cottage is a two-minute boardwalk over the dunes to the beach. We wished there had been an outdoor shower, but there is a hose available for rinsing off. There were adequate beach chairs, toys, towels, and a cart. We added some boogie boards to the collection. You will need to rent umbrellas. Since some of us came in by car, we instead decided to purchase a canopy, adequate for our entire family.

I want to mention the service we were given by the management company, Tybee Cottages. Without going into detail, we had two different family issues that came up, one prior to our stay and one as we were leaving. We cannot thank management enough for going above and beyond to help us.

You will have a wonderful stay at The Cottage.

All I can say is WOW! We spent 5 nights at 2 12th Street during the last week of May. We were concerned when tropical storm Beryl made his way towards us, but that only slowed us down on Sunday - so we headed 40 miles north Sunday to Hilton Head and hit the Tanger Outlets!

The home was beautifully decorated, very clean, and provided a 24/7 view of the water. Beds were comfortable, and our entire family had a wonderful time. Jim was fabulous throughout the entire process from booking the home to closing up when we left.

We will not hesitate to book through Tybee Cottages again. I'm already looking at the calendar for next year.
