We searched for a number of years to find the ideal deep water property in Savannah. We lived in the dockhouse for 3 years, and still live in the same neighborhood.

The amazing waterfront views from inside the dockhouse and from the dock sold us on the property. Relaxing and eating on the dock with the ocean breezes, all set in a quiet residential neighborhood, made us feel like we were on vacation all the time!

Amazing best describes this place. We are a family of four that love water and boating. This was the perfect place. Words and pictures can never do it justice. You just gotta stay there. So peaceful, restful, and views from all rooms are great. The owners are some of the kindness people you can meet. Location was perfect, not far from the heart of Savannah, near some great restaurants and grocery store. We even got to see the Coast Guard doing training maneuvers on the river the morning we left. We will definitely be back. Loved Savannah, visited Tybee Island and slept and rested like we were at home. The wood work in this place is unbelievable. All I can say is Loved Loved Loved it. By far one of our best vacations.

The house was relaxing, very comfortable and decor was magnificent. Experiencing the low & high tides made the lapping of the water even more relaxing. Sitting outside on the decks were great. Wanda & Bob are very nice & friendly host. Had no problems while staying there. Very good location and very excessible to alot of the areas to go to places. Will be going back again for another "Girls Weekend".
Loved It!!! Robin, Pam and Tippi

Savannah Family Reunion/Wedding Trip

We were so fortunate to find this gem of a property in Savannah! We have been coming to Savannah for years for family gatherings and had no idea such a unique property was available to rent in the area. The owners were such gracious hosts - and this coupled with the central location of this meticulously restored 'boathouse residence' made for a perfect stay for our family of 4. We will be back to Savannah again and hope it is available for our next visit!

Great Family Vacation Over the 4th of July

We had a wonderful time staying at the Dock House and enjoyed the short drive to Tybee Island and dinner in downtown Savannah at Paula Dean's. The owners were wonderful and our young adults and younger child all enjoyed the boat ride on the intercoastal and the dolphins that greeted us in the morning while sipping coffee on the dock. We have recommended this spot to numerous friends looking for that unique get away. The last night we enjoyed the fireworks on the 4th of July that could be seen from the dock that were over downtown Savannah. The house comfortably sleeps 6 and everything is easy to find in town. We look forward to visiting again in the future. Kevin and Michelle

Wilmington Island Riverfront Holiday

My wife and I stayed here during the Labor Day holidays. My favorite thing is the 200' dock with covered area at the end. It is a great place to fish, sit, read, relax, watch the boats go by and of course watch the sunsets with an adult beverage. Hosts Bob & Wanda took us for a pleasant boat ride to a barrier island. This was a great place for looking for shells and seeing the dolpins. This was an extra cost option but well worth it. Bob offers a fishing trip as an option and he knows the local fishing areas well. If you have your own boat, I'm sure you could tie up at the dock. Bob and Wanda are gracious hosts and incredibly knowledgeable about Savannah. They were willing to answer any questions and give advice on what to see in the area. I would certainly recommend this destination!!

Great location on the edge of the beautiful Wilmington River (intra-coastal waterway). Relax in a delightful cottage built in the 1930's and completely remodeled in 2012. Hardwood floors throughout the house with an awesome close-up waterfront view from every room. A spacious living room, separate dining room, fully equipped kitchen and two bedrooms offer you a home away from home. Enjoy an updated bathroom. Cook your fish or steaks on the convenient outdoor grill under the large covered porch while the ocean breeze reminds you that you are on vacation. Or save your appetite for a low country boil on your dock that you share only with the family in main house. Plenty of room for vacation meals inside the house, on the porch or on the dock.

This perfect location between Savannah and Tybee Island means you are only 10 miles from historic downtown and 10 miles to Tybee.

You can fish off the dock or catch blue crabs right off the dock and cook them on the dock in the cooker provided. You can relax in the sun or swim in the river. You will have lots of room on the dock for sunbathing and a large covered area for picnics and reading that book you have been eager to read. Bring your own boat and tie up to the dock - you will be ready to take advantage of the great fishing in the area.

Cast off your boat at the dock and you can be in the ocean or playing in the sand on a secluded, barrier island beach in minutes. Collect seashells and walk on the beaches. No big crowds on these beaches that you can only reach by boat! Or you can fish for trout or bass in the rivers and marshes. Cook your own fresh fish some evenings and enjoy the fine restaurants on Wilmington Island

and, downtown Savannah or Tybee Island other evenings.

You will want to be at the cottage and dock at least one evening for the beautiful sunset.

For the golfers, The Wilmington Plantation Golf Club is located a quarter mile away. Another option is to take your boat across the river to Priest's Landing, dock the boat and play at The Landings on Skidaway Island (or you may choose to drive).

We have information for you on kayak rentals, dolphin and river excursions and inshore and offshore charter fishing, and barrier island tours.

We're sure you will have so much fun that you will want to return to this location for more getaways!
