About Paul or Shannon Strojny- Call or Email for Availability

I have been in the rental business for years and have lived on Tybee Island for 24 yrs. Once I retired from the Board of Education, I started my own Vacation Rental Business and invested in other properties here on the island. I am proud to say that it is a family owned business - both my sons are Captains with Savannah Fire Department & they handle all construction & maintenance, my wonderful daughter-in-law is my Agent, & my husband helps out with various important task, & last but not least, our 4 Lb. Yorkie, 'Scooter', is our mascot of my company, 'coastalgeorgiacottages'

Paul or Shannon Strojny- Call or Email for Availability purchased this cottage in 1980

Why Paul or Shannon Strojny- Call or Email for Availability chose Tybee Island

I chose this mid island location because it was so close to the beach and puts you in walking distance to many restaurants, shops, parks, gym, library, etc. The off street parking is a plus not to mention the view of the gorgeous sunrise and full moon at night from your front porch. If you enjoy the beach, you will love this house.

What makes this cottage unique

This property is unique and has that special touch inside and out. You have a fabulous courtyard to enjoy along with the pool. The tropical atmosphere & decor gives it that island look everyone welcomes along with a romantic feel throughout the garden. The cottage is totally equipped and the beach decor will put you in the island mood.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a great time this week on Tybee. We love it here! We have made many trips to Tybee Island and this is the second time we stayed at the Flamingo Cottage and Turtle Cottage. We will be back. Thank you again for another WONDERFUL vacation.

Exactly How I Imagined

  • 5 of 5

Just home from my 2nd visit to Turtle Cottage (3rd with Coastal Georgia Cottages). There is a reason I returned there - I love how it makes me feel! When you walk in the door a smile will spread across your face and you are instantly relieved that it is exactly how you pictured it. It is comfortable, clean and convenient. It has plenty of elbow room and a gorgeous courtyard. I have already made so many memories at Turtle Cottage and Tybee Island and I plan to make many more.

Home Away From Home!

Everything was wonderful! Paul answered all of our questions as soon as we asked them. Short walk to the beach. Very nicely decorated and clean. Full stocked storehouse full of nice things and necessities to take to the beach. Very comfy home like setting. I LOVED this cottage!

we came to the island to do something different for Thanksgiving. I envisioned sitting on the beach for several days relaxing; but instead we explored the island and Savannah. It was an absolute wonderful experience. Ending each day in the hot tub just capped it off perfectly! The property managers are responsive and so easy to deal with; we highly recommend this cottage for your stay. Its an easy walk to the beach, the shops downtown, etc. We did not eat at any restaurants. Instead we prepared fresh caught shrimp. The beds are super comfortable, the kitchen has basically everything you need to save money by preparing most of your own meals, and we definitely plan to return!

Enchanting, whimsical cottage

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I just just left Turtle Cottage yesterday. The pictures give you a glimpse of the effort the owner puts into the detail. We were all so charmed by the house. We were also very close to the beach, shops, we rented bikes, we enjoyed the awesome pool. Our neighbors were friendly and we enjoyed chatting with them. It was really a wonderful, wonderful trip, made most special by the owner's personal attention and care of Turtle Cottage. I'm going to do my best to come back and make more memories with my husband ... SOON! P.S. Richard, no tickets! And Alicia, thank you so much! You ARE the hostess with the mostest!

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Turtle Cottage the weekend of May 20, 2011. The cottage itself was like an island retreat. Absolutely full of island flavor with such whimsical decor throughout. Beautiful property including the garden arbor and pool/hot tub. We travel yearly to Jamaica and spents thousands of dollars to stay at The Sandals Resorts, however we found the Turtle just as relaxing and inviting. The location was awesome as well. Right across from the beach and a few blocks from bike rental shops where we rented bikes and traveled all over the island. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to experience such a lovely vacation. We have definitely found a new vacation spot and I am sure we will be back!!!

Delightfully Decorated and Conveniently Located

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great vacation at the turtle cottage in tybee. We consisted of 4 adults and 2 teenage kids. The kids slept on the pullout sofa and grandma and grandpa had the room with the twin beds. It was snug but we enjoyed the close quarters. The kitchen had everything we needed except a large skillet. There was plenty of closet space and towels and a nice washer and dryer. We loved the private back porch area and it's great location. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone.

Convenient mid-island location puts you in the heart of all activities, across from beach with cross-walk, access to the pool & hot tub through the sailboat gate outside your front door.

You have first class seats to watch parades & marathons from your own front porch & a back porch for family gatherings. A activity book is provided with useful information; maps, tours, restaurants, etc. Coffee is supplied upon your arrival along with a well equipped kitchen to whip up anything you desire. As a convenience to our guest, we supply your first roll of paper towels, toilet paper, garbage bags, hand soap,& kleenex, but you will need to supply the paper products & detergents afterwards. In addition, you have off street parking - no parking meters to pay - crosswalk is provided by the house and you're on the beach. Tybee Shuttle goes right by the house should you want to explore the island or just rent a bike around the corner & see for yourself.
