About Lesli

Our family shares responsibility for the house. I live on the island nearby. We've called Tybee our home away from home since 2000. We love Tybee!

Lesli purchased this house in 2008

Why Lesli chose Tybee Island

My late husband designed and built the house in 2009. The house was a small, cinder block home that he transformed into a unique, modernist cottage with a pool.

What makes this house unique

We love to all get together, open up the garage doors on to the sun porch, turn up the music, and hang by the pool. With the walled in pool, you feel like you have your own secret hideaway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A good winter break!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed being on Tybee Island and especially in this interesting and enjoyable house.

The weather was very cold but that didn't bother us.....we found good local restaurants and lovely places to explore. The ocean and dunes are lovely there. Glad we found this!

Perfect get away❤️

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for my husband and I. Pool was refreshing after being at the beach and the walk to the beach, grocery, and restaurants is close. Everyone on Tybee was very hospitable especially the homeowner Lesli! We will definitely rent this house again if ever in Tybee.

Beach Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The house has everything that you need and is well taken care of. I enjoyed my stay very much. I wish there was a TV in the master bedroom though. Overall, this home was very nice.

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for 2 adults and 3 kids (age 12, 11,9) We loved the pool and pool area. The bathrooms were resort like and the location was perfect. Kids loved the outdoor shower. The attention to detail with the house made it function perfectly for us. No need to to out to eat either with the great kitchen and out door eating and cooking space. We hope we can stay again!
