Overview

Coastal Georgia Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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.

A few things, bot overall a great stay.

  • 4 of 5

Pros:

Great location and space, well stocked except for the missing grinder;

The outdoor showers were a big hit

Great overall use of the backyard space (see below for exceptions)

Cons:

The hammock was down when we arrived, no big deal to tie the down end but the rope promptly broke;

If the advertised coffee grinder was on the premises we were unable to find it, so we took our Tybean coffee beans home instead:

Poison oak on the back yard. Any hardware store has a spray that will deal with it quickly and inexpensively.

Cute little house

  • 4 of 5

Although the outside of the house leaves something to be desired, once you step inside you'll forget about the rusty front door. There is plenty of room for a large group, plenty of bathroom space between the 1 full bath, 2 half baths and 2 outdoor showers (which where a huge hit). We had an issue with the fridge. It definitely took the full 24 hours to cool down our food so we had to make a few emergency ice runs. Overall, everyone thoroughly enjoyed their stay and we recommend the house to groups and families.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, comfortable, and well-equipped. The location was great. We especially appreciated being able to talk directly to the owner through the whole process. He was always helpful and available.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Dreamsicle Beach Cottage. The owner was attentive to our needs and the house was perfect for our stay. We really liked the short walk to the beach and the access to local businesses. We plan to come back!

Location, location, location

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic location, the house is nice, large, well stocked. The property could use some basic maintence and TLC. The biggest disappointment was the grills for outdoor cooking were unusable. They need to be removed from the property. Hopefully replaced because the yard (although the trees leaf dropping are impossible to keep up with) is beautiful. The hammock and outdoor showers were a wonderful bonus. Best food on the island North Beach Grill. 5-10 minute walk!

Car: not necessary

Within 4 blocks of this home, you will find 6 restaurants, a post office, convenience store, liquor store, a fresh seafood store, an ATM, a pharmacy, 5 bars, a bike rental shop, a surf shop, 2 clothing/gift shops, and a wide, white-sand 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.
