About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12, Water and Sunset Views

This wonderful single family home is located just one house back from Tybee's Back River beach and has nice views of Little Tybee Island and beautiful sunsets. Mere steps away from sandy toes and water. Or relax and enjoy the sea breezes from the spacious wrap around porches. The quiet residential neighborhood is tucked away from crowds, but is only a short stroll to the larger oceanfront beach, restaurants, shops, and the parade route (Tybee celebrates ''holidays'' in style... St. Patrick's Day, Christmas, Beach Bum, Pirate Fest...!).

The house is very bright and open with cheerful colors, lots of windows, and nice views of the water. Glass doors in just about every room lead to 10' deep porches. The wrap around porches host a hammock, dining table, and sitting areas. The fenced in yard has a swing set with a slide for little ones. The outdoor shower has hot & cold water and is conveniently located near the gate to the beach.

It is the perfect place for entertaining family and friends!

About Susan Wylly

Although we moved into 'town' to be closer to schools and every day activity, we love escaping to our beach house whenever possible. It's always refreshing to drive the Tybee road toward our piece of paradise!

Susan Wylly purchased this house in 1998

Why Susan Wylly chose Tybee Island

Personally I think this particular location on the island is the best... Somewhat undiscovered part of the beach in a quiet residential neighborhood, with commercial activity near enough to walk to (by beach or road). And it is a very convenient spot to nose your boat up to the beach, have friends hop aboard and take off to explore the surrounding waterways and nearby uninhabited islands.

What makes this house unique

A few unique benefits of the property: walking out of the door and being on the beach in a few short steps, relaxing in a chair on the sand or strolling around the front beach to see the action, kayaking across the river to Little Tybee Island (a paradise in itself!), capturing the beautiful sunsets, being close enough to restaurants and shopping but far enough away from the crowds, watching the dolphins play... the list goes on!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fabulous house served our family of 10 for our Family Reunion. Rough start due to tropical storm Hermine. When storm cleared there was a gorgeous full rainbow over the ocean pier. Thank you for sharing your home with us this wonderful Labor Day weekend!

Beautiful & well decorated home, Perfect location, Sweet owner

  • 5 of 5

Owner Susan offers a beautiful beach home to stay on Tybee Island. She is a sweet, warm host. The home is large and charming. Great for a family to spread out in. Beach access and quiet pier are steps away. Bonus: We had our boat docked down the street at AJ's which is super convenient.

Charming house, room for all, great location

  • 5 of 5

We used Anna Mia Cottage for our family Christmas gathering. Eleven people from 3 to 63 gathered, and we never felt on top of each other. Quick, easy access to the beach on the river, or a very short walk to the beach on the ocean made this a great location for everyone. For the five of us under 10, the decks, kid themed bedrooms and books kept us out of mom & dad's hair and never saying "I'm board".

Would love to come back here again! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Ana Mia house made my daughter’s wedding the perfect house for family quests.

  • 5 of 5

We were overjoyed by our choice of houses. My daughter wanted to get married on the beach at sunset. The location was perfect, just steps away from the most beautiful sunset. The house was spacious enough for strangers to become family without feeling cramped or forced. Every family member was more than pleased with our stay. The bride enjoyed a hot tub bubble bath before the ceremony, the football fans enjoyed watching GA defeat FL in the living room while the others relaxed on the porch. The kitchen was fully equipped with all our preparation needs for baking appetizers and pies. The grandchildren played in the yard and enjoyed exploring the old and spacious house. It was the perfect place for a perfect wedding weekend.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Great house in a great location. My friends and I rented the house for a "boys weekend." We were very comfortable here. Lots of room, well maintained and nicely decorated. Great natural light and awesome large decks, which were a favorite place to hang out. The house is in a less busy, more residential part of Tybee but is only about 75 yards to the water, with convenient beach access, swimming, and a fishing pier that we enjoyed for sun set cocktails. The house is located an easy walk or golf cart ride to the main Tybee beach area with lots of restaurants and bars and AJ's dockside restaurant is a short walk the other direction. The house owner/manager was delightful and very easy to work with. She even helped us line up a private boat charter with a local captain. We totally enjoyed staying here and hope to return soon.

Owner's Response: These "boys" are long time friends that live in various states now, but make a point to get together every year. Sounds like their first visit to Tybee was a success. Hope Anna Mia Cottage makes the reunion destination list again soon!

Fantastic beach house at great location

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was a home away from home with every amenity. It was well stocked with everything we needed for a long weekend. We had plenty of paper products and the kitchen was fully stocked with cookware, utensils and dishes. The furnishings and décor were up to date and very comfortable. There was more than adequate seating for dining and relaxing, both inside and on the porches. The location couldn't have been any better, with very close access to the beach and everything needed in close walking distance. There were games, books and items for the beach as well. We had no problems at all with our stay and Susan was great to work with. My family had a wonderful time and hope to return.

Great house with plenty of room for large families.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time for the entire family to vacation together, six adults and two children. Anna Mia was fantastic. Each couple and both children had their own bedrooms. The house is very spacious and the two decks were great for viewing sunsets. Susan was fantastic and great to deal with. The amenities of provided linens and towels is a great space saver for traveling. The house is very well appointed and the kitchen had all the supplies anyone would need on vacation. If we can get the entire family together again, we will definitely rent this house again.
