Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 full bath, 1 half-bath, 2 shower rooms, sleeps 10 - 15

Newly renovated. The open floor plan and lots of windows make the kitchen/living area of Dreamsicle Beach Cottage a very appealing place to gather or to quietly watch the awesome sunsets we so often get. All 3 bedrooms are large (big enough for an air mattress, too, if desired). Besides the shower in the main bathroom, two hot showers are outdoors in enclosed shower rooms. A bedroom with 5 windows looks out onto the peaceful back yard. This back yard with its shade trees and palm trees is a wonderful place to congregate or just read a book. Have breakfast outdoors on the shady deck at the table for 6. Grill in the evening. Sit in the porch swing that is hung from an old live oak and talk with a friend reclining in a hammock strung between 2 palm trees. The back yard is completely enclosed by a combination of picket fence and privacy fence.

Dreamsicle is only 2 very short blocks from the beach. Stroll to the beach on a dirt lane alongside a creek with cattails and minnows. We are in a quiet residential area (no through traffic) but within 3 blocks of dining and shopping --- 6 restaurants, 2 clothing shops, surf shop, pharmacy, convenience store, liquor store, ATM, and Post Office.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Ted,

I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for sharing Dreamsicle with us. It was perfect for our needs. I loved that we could close off the two bedrooms we weren't using creating a little shotgun house for us. The fenced yard was great for the dogs and we enjoyed the deck on the few really nice days that we had while there. It is a perfect location. I walked the dogs up to the park a couple of times each day and enjoyed the Egrets, Herons and turtles we saw along the way. I've shared the links to your properties with several friends so hopefully they will choose your properties for their visits to Tybee, too. We will certainly revisit Dreamsicle on our next trip to the area. Thanks again and God Bless.

Nice house, good price, well-equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! The location was terrific and the house was clean and well-equipped. There were little things that needed repair and we gave Ted a short list (outlet, breaker...). The back yard could use some love (black plastic weed blocker shows through) but we didn't spend much time out there anyway so it wasn't a big deal.

We were surprised about the number of half baths (a toilet for each bedroom). We didn't end up using the outside showers because it wasn't very warm, but they looked nice and clean.

A few suggestions would be a few small area rugs since it's all tile, front and back window shades that are easier to lift and a small shelf/cabinet by the fridge to serve as a panty but these things aren't a deal breaker by any means! It's a good house and we'd stay there again! Ample parking and close to Sugar Shack, which my kids loved.

The only issue is I lost ONE puzzle piece from a puzzle I was working on but didn't finish and brought home to complete. I guess I can't blame that on the house! Haha!

Thanks Ted!

Still a Dream ..

  • 5 of 5

Dreamsicle is showing it's age, but still a comfortable, clean place to stay.

Enjoy the fenced in yard, large deck & outdoor showers. Short walk to beach, nice to walk dogs along Solomon Ave,, close to the Theater and Park. Looking forward to next year !!

Cozy cottage close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a great visit to Dreamsicle Cottage. Everything inside was clean and well maintained. Ted was very responsive and professional. We visited off season in March, and the backyard was in need of mulching (exposed black plastic sheeting everywhere) and the outdoor furniture needed a good sweeping off. It was still a little cold and we weren't able to spend much time outside anyway. I'm guessing it is much better maintained in season. The house is very close to the beach and also close to the fort and lighthouse. Perfect places for walking and biking. There are a few restaurants and stores within walking distance. We walked to the Sugar Shack almost every evening for ice cream! It was also close to St. Patty's Day, which I didn't realize was such a big deal. There was a parade in Tybee while we were there. There were many St. Patty's day activities going on in Savanah as well. Overall, I would definitely stay at Dreamsicle again and highly recomend it.

Excellent weekend !

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cute and cozy beach house. We had ample room for all 7 of us, and enjoyed sitting on the deck in the afternoons/evenings. Close to so much, and the beach was a block away. Definitely would stay here again!

Was perfect Location to tybee chapel for daughters wedding! Very accommodating for guest!

  • 5 of 5

The beach shack was perfect Location for guest driving in for wedding, to change or visit. With three toilets it was perfect for everyone. There was a cold snap that weekend so no one wanted to challenge outdoor showers but the heater kept inside toasty warm. Kitchen had all we needed, same for linen, TP, soaps etc. there was plenty for all! Great value and space! Internet was big plus w all grandkids gadgets! We could even walk to the beach!!

Pedicab is just a block away. This is like a small horse-drawn carriage except that it is powered by an enterprising biker instead of a horse. (The Crab Cab is the island taxi service) A short walk to the north is a large park with ancient live oak trees and a gazebo beside a stream. A short walk to the south is the library and another park with picnic tables. A YMCA is adjacent to this park.
