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.

Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

There wasn't anything we could have needed that the owners hadn't already thought of and provided. Plenty of parking, fenced backyard for our pooch, televisions with dish tv in each room, plenty of bathrooms, and all cleaned to perfection. We would most definitely stay here again and recommend to all our friends.

  • 4 of 5

Read the reviews. complaints were still the same. Lights outside not working. Outlets in the house unusable. No closet space or night stands. The stay was overall nice. This is not negative just some ideas to help make someone’s stay better. No hassle check in and out.

Owner's Response: An electrician solved the problem with the outdoor lights. All the outdoor lights are working perfectly. The wall switch that controls the kitchen lights also controls the kitchen outlets. When the kitchen lights are on, the outlets work. We have put a note on that switch that explains its operation. One of the bedrooms contains a standard closet (about 6 feet) and a chest of drawers. One bedroom contains a chest of drawers and no closet. The third bedroom contains a wardrobe closet and a dresser with drawers.

Very nice, would stay again

  • 4 of 5

Very nice & clean. House built in 1964, so older, but some if it has been upgraded. A few more upgrades would increase score. Two of the toilets would automatically flush, or run, throughout the night. So that was a little annoying. There is only one shower inside the house, but it is very nice, lots of hot water. The unit has DirecTV and has TVs in every room. There is a nice deck to sit outside in the evening, with two outdoor showers.close to beach too. If you're looking for a place for the Rock and Roll Marathon, this is a good choice. The shuttle bus downtown was only a 7 minute walk

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.
