Half Baths


Tybee Island 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


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.

Cozy, clean, pet friendly cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and cute cottage just as appears in the pictures. Great backyard for dogs and chit chatting with friends and family though much more mulch is needed to cover the weed block plastic throughout the entire space. Everyone loved the outdoor showers, beds were comfy and house well stocked. Great beach access with nice sand and sunrises. Dogs are not allowed on the beach, but there are nice shady lanes to walk the dogs. Owner was very timely and thorough in communication. Would recommend this property.

Best cottage on Tybee

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stay here every year and we love it. Everything possibly needed is here. Close to the beach and restaurants. We love the outdoor showers and it's also pet friendly. Can't wait to go back and just as soon as my husbands work schedule comes out in January I will be contacting the owner to make reservations.

Great family vacation and anniversary!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just right for what we needed. The outside showers were great.

Suggestions: Put another trash can in the kitchen to keep the recycling items

separate from the non-recycling items. The location was just right for us. We

would use him again. The owner called me to let me know the storm had

knocked out the light in the back yard and to be sure we didn't need anything.

A few things, bot overall a great stay.

  • 4 of 5


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)


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.

Owner's Response: We couldn't find the coffee grinder either; so we got a new one. The hammock has been secured in place, swinging between two palm trees. There has never been any poison ivy at all on the property. The guest confused a virginia creeper vine with poison ivy.
