This wonderful family beach home has been in the Cole Family for over 50 years. A Classic Tybee Raised Cottage sits on a total of three lots full of trees. The cottage is just one block from the family friendly 12th Street Beach on the corner of Butler Ave and 12th Street.
A perfect place for couples, families, or large groups, the cottage can be rented as a 5 bedroom beach house (The Cole Cottage and Cole Cottage Too), a 4 bedroom beach house(The Cole Cottage only), or in the low seasons just Cole Cottage Too, a 1 bedroom, 1 bath with efficiency kitchen and living area. The cottage’s location is ideal. Shopping, gallery hopping, and dining are all within a leisurely walk of the cottage. An easy day trip can be made to Historic Savannah, Hilton Head, Beaufort, or Charleston.
Picked as the “Healthiest Beach” by Health Magazine, June 18, 2009, Tybee Island is the perfect place to ride bikes, walk on the beach, dine on local seafood, or just lie in a hammock and read a good book.
The Cole Cottage and Cole Cottage Too are special places for creating memories with family and friends.

Some have said that we have the best porch on Tybee Island. Whether you want to lie in the hammock and read a book, gather together for a memorable meal, or just sit and enjoy the ocean breezes with family and friends.
We had the BEST weekend at the Cole Cottage! It was cute, cozy and absolutely perfect! The location was convenient to everything on Tybee! Gus was also super awesome to deal with! Thank you for a GREAT stay!
Our family thoroughly enjoyed this charming house. It is beautifully decorated & in a good location. The screened porch is huge, peaceful & has plenty of seating for meals or relaxing.
Thoroughly enjoyed our week at Cole Cottage! We were a party of 8 ranging in age from 12 to mid 80's. Easy access to the beach and proximity to the grocery store. The cottage was comfortable and cozy-- more a family home than a sterile rental spot, which we enjoyed. The wrap-around screened porch is divine! Great place to dine and play games. Plenty of towels, dishes, kitchen amenities and parking. Also tons of beach gear: chairs, umbrellas, etc. Wonderful to have a washer/dryer available. We really felt Tybee in this house. We have stayed other places on the island but Cole Cottage provides the essence of Tybee.
The property is clean and only a block from the beach. The front screened-porch is amazing. I sat outside there for hours in the hammock with a book. We ate meals there and visited. Fantastic with an awesome breeze off the ocean. The interior of the house is generally clean, but very dated. It could use a bit of an overhaul. Shutters damaged, light repairs needed. Outside of the house is in need of a paint job. But everthing was in working order. The kitchen is also very dated, but had everything we needed to put together our meals. Given the repairs and general maintenance required, I think they should have come down on the price. If returning to Tybee, I would likely not rent the house again.
This was a great house for a "girls weekend" away. This house is very spacious, comfortable and equipped with everything needed for a stay at the beach. It was plenty large enough to accommodate our group with everyone getting a comfy bed. The porch is truly the best on Tybee. The house is very convenient to walk to the beach and to dining and shopping. We will definitely be back again next year.
We were looking for something like Cole cottage different from a major chain. Accomadations for four families were perfect. One block from the beach was great for carrying beach items and for small children. Proximity to savannah was good for addional sightseeing and activities.
