Overview

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.

The Best Stay Ever!

  • 5 of 5

The Ana Mia Cottage was the perfect home for my Bachelorette Weekend getaway! The host was extremely pleasant and helpful and the home was spacious and beautiful. The place is convenient to the beach, shops, restaurants, etc...all just a reasonable walk away. I will most definitely be returning to the Ana Mia Cottage my next visit to Tybee!!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had three families together, 6 kids and 6 adults, and everyone was comfortable and relaxed. The open floor plan was perfect and we loved using the numerous porch areas for eating and hanging out. Susan was responsive to our questions. We loved sharing this wonderful home. Quick access to the bay side. Beautiful sunsets!!!!! We loved walking along the beach around the tip of the island. We also drove the few minutes to the pier to hang at the larger beach. Cars park along the side road for access to the bayside pier. We had no issues. Easy drive to Savannah.

Ana Mia Cottage Mini reunion

  • 5 of 5

Ana Mia Cottage is a beautiful house perfect for a mini reunion. Owner, Susan Wyly is very nice and helpful. Answers your questions very promptly. Property is very close to the beach. It was so windy and cold when we were there but we still enjoyed little time at the pier. Would have been nice to stay at the two level wrap around porch but the weather did not permit. Our group had fun and laughter inside the very spacious house. Will definitely refer this to friends and family. Thank you Susan.
