Crab Creek Cottage~A Place to Feel the Breeze, Sun, & Hospitality

I spent 3 years and countless hours restoring this little 1940's Cottage with lots of love and care. It has a warm, beachy feel to it. The views boast both a beautiful sunrise on the front porch over Chimney Creek, and an equally beautiful sunset from the bedroom windows over Crab Creek. The Cottage is a small distance to the beach, but far enough away from all the touristy chaos, so you can relax in our QUIET little neighborhood or you can go to Little Tybee by boat with my father. Watch out though, I should warn you the neighbors show real southern hospitality and will talk to you :)

Find us on Facebook for more & better quality pictures. We're still getting set up, there will be more...

Please consider that this is a place for families and low-key getaways. The neighbors are awesome and very friendly, however we do desire that their peace is respected because this is a neighborhood of locals and not seasonal/tourist renting.

Want to bring your boat with you? You can put in at the marina across the street, and we have plenty of room for parking your trailer.

A little Gem

  • 5 of 5

Crab Creek Cottage is a most lovely secluded & peaceful retreat nestled amongst beautiful live oaks in a quiet & friendly neighborhood. It's obvious that the cottage has been & continues to be a labor of love for its owners. It's situated perfectly away from the crowds but with convenient access to Tybee's beaches & downtown Savannah. Ken and I thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing 5 night stay here. We rented bikes and so enjoyed exploring the island and our morning commute to get great coffee at Tybean. The cottage is bright, clean, cozy & comfortable. Owners Seth and Jessica are a delightful, energetic & friendly young couple - concerned with one's wellbeing, eager to please, warm, welcoming and hospitable. They are the most caring and gracious of hosts and have every reason to be proud of their rental and the service they offer. If you're looking for a quaint little beach cottage with loads of character - this is it. Many grateful thanks, Niks & Ken :)

A lovely renovation in a location that is equally convenient to beaches and Savannah downtown.

  • 4 of 5

Seth and family have done a fine job renovating and decorating this cottage. It has modern appliances and the decor is just right. Seth had taken some old bead board pine paneling that had been painted and he planed the planks down to leave just a bit of the old paint. The look is perfect for a down South beach cottage. There is a nice porch and just behind there is a dock that looks out over the marsh and creek...great for sunset evenings. It was perfect for my wife and me. The neighborhood is quiet.

The beaches are a few minutes drive away and downtown Savannah is 15 to 20 minutes away depending on traffic and destination.

Perfect cottage in a beautiful quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for two couples. We enjoyed the yard, garden and dock. Two bedrooms and two baths were just right for privacy. On the front porch we enjoyed the sunshine and played cards after a day of sightseeing. January gave us warm days to explore the island and day trip to Savannah. We'll be back!
