Overview

About the property

4 BR 3.5 BA, 2 homes attached by deck offer privacy for groups and families.

Spend your Tybee Island getaway in “Blue Two.” Only a 5-minute walk to the beach!

Our vacation rental property includes 2 houses that are connected by a deck (There's an ancient tree that grows in the middle of it!). One house is named “Blue Cottage” (ID: 969676, sleeps 6), and the other larger one is named “Blue House” (ID: 969674, sleeps 9. Both described below).

In June and, July, we rent them together only, as a single unit, and call it “Blue Two” (ID: 969670 or 84674). It sleeps total of 15 – large groups love it! During those months, we rent Blue Two for full, 7-night weeks only, Sunday to Sunday.

In autumn, winter and spring, we also offer the 2 houses, each as a single unit, to be rented separately, if that is what a guest wants. After summer, for the rest of the year, you have 3 options:

1. Blue Cottage alone (969676 – sleeps 6)

2. Blue House alone (969674 – sleeps 9)

3. Blue House and Blue Cottage together as Blue Two (969670 or 84674 – sleeps 15).

Blue Two = Blue House and Blue Cottage

You and your family/friends will enjoy staying in these 2 historic homes, connected by a wrap-around deck. The larger house has 2 baths, 2 bedrooms with queen beds – 4 sleeping spaces, 1 bedroom with bunk beds. There's a regular size bunk mattress, plus a full size for 3 sleeping spaces in that room. There is a sofa-sleeper with 2 spaces in the living room for a total of 9 sleeping spaces in Blue House. Also, there is a full, well-equipped kitchen and a washer/dryer.

In addition, you can cozy up in the smaller private cottage off the deck. Blue Cottage has 1.5 baths, one-bedroom (king bed that sleeps 2) and a living room that sleeps 4, plus a well-stocked kitchenette with a second washer/dryer.

Guests really enjoy an enclosed, hot-water shower on the separating deck where you can wash off the sand under ancient trees and the sun or moon. Add a screened-in porch for morning coffee, lunch and games on rainy days, with Mother Nature everywhere around you, and you've got a vacation fit for royalty!

Homey décor, great layout, sun-filled common areas, high ceilings, large windows and pine floors—don’t miss this opportunity to be surrounded by extraordinary architectural character. Drive or walk to great restaurants on the island, and take a morning stroll (3.5 blocks) to watch the sun rise out of the Atlantic. You’ll say, “What’s not to love?”

Why Gail Lamb chose Coastal Georgia

Being a Georgia girl, I wanted a place at the most easily accessible beach to Atlanta and mountains of NC. Having old family ties to Savannah made the choice of Tybee feel like the perfect beach location. With its old homes, zoning requirements, and laid back atmosphere, it is great for bike riding, beach walking and enjoying a minimally commercial beach area.

What makes this house unique

The privacy of attached cottage is perfect for a master suite or children's area.

Conveniently located 3 1/2 blocks from less crowded mid-island beach.

Quiet residential street, close to High Tide Surf Shop, Sundae Cafe, The Sugar Shack, MacElwee's Restaurant, Pizza on Wheels, Chu's Market, Island Pharmacy and more.

Wonderful place to stay!! We are still talking about how wonderful the houses were!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in both houses, 12 of us, for my daughters bachelorette party, October 2016. Hurricane Matthew had just hit Tybee Island the weekend before. The owners had the property up and running for us! They were wonderful to work with! There was plenty of room, both houses were immaculate and beautifully decorated. We took Uber into Savannah for dinner, about a 20 minute ride, which worked out perfectly. The beach was a five minute walk. I am looking forward to going back!!

Wonderfully Charming

  • 5 of 5

We rented both blues for a very short girl scout trip. They were fantastic. We loved the layout and had plenty of room for 14 people. Every one thought they were beautifully decorated and clean. We would love to return. The caretakers were just leaving as we arrived and were very friendly and helpful. Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay at your place.

Lovely, blue house. Spacious, expansive main house and the cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Superb house for our Thanksgiving family gathering. The spacious house plus the cozy cottage allowed us to spread out and chill when we needed to and yet be together to cook and eat as a whole family. Very special holiday experience!

Family Reunion/Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Tremendous 4 day stay at Blue Two! Both the house and cottage are very nice and accommodated 14 of us with no problem. Searched high and low for an ironing board, so we just bought a travel board that we donated. Highly recommended for any large group - will stay here again if we ever come back to the area.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words about your visit to our Blue Two properties on Tybee Island. As always we really appreciate any feedback from our guests. We apologize for the missing ironing boards. We always try to provide them, and when the owner last looked, there were 2 small ones (table top type). One was next to water heater in cottage and one in walk-in closet in house. For minimal use of space, we thought those adequate. Thanks very much for your purchase, the donation, and for letting us know--we'll try to keep a closer eye on our ironing boards. Please come again for a Blue Two visit.

Comfortable and roomy!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 12 had plenty of room to spread out. The house is beautifully decorated. The beds were comfortable. We loved the outside shower to rinse the sand off after a day at the beach. The beach was an easy walking distance just a short 5 minute walk. This is a lovely house.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your kind words about our property (Blue Two) on Tybee Island. We were equally delighted with how clean your Girl Scouts left everything. It was a great help to our house-keeping crew to find the houses tidied up, including leaving the beach towels we loaned you washed and neatly stacked. We're so glad you enjoyed staying at Blue Two and hope you'll come back anytime you feel the call of the waves.

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. 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.
