About Paul or Shannon Strojny- Call or Email for Availability
I grew up in Savannah (20 minutes away), moved to Tybee Island while employed with the Board of Education. I invested in rental property for many years & after taking early retirement, I decided to start my own Family Vacation Rental business, which is called Coastal Georgia Cottages. I am a mother of two fine sons, Mark & Paul, who are Captains with the Savannah Fire Department. They've done much of the maintenance and new construction; my youngest son, Paul and his wife, Shannon, handle all the bookings & cleaning service; I handle most of the decision making, decorating, small maintenance, purchasing, office work & advertising, etc.. My husband, Richard, helps out in the decision making & is very helpful in other areas. He too owns his own Logistics business and finds time to help me out whenever the cause arises. Last, my 4 lb. Yorkie, is our mascot for Coastal Georgia Cottages.

Why Paul or Shannon Strojny- Call or Email for Availability chose Tybee Island
I always wanted to live at the beach. It's like being on vacation year round with a laid back atmosphere. It is a small, friendly & safe community --- you can walk, ride your bike or golf cart any time day or night. Everything is so convenient & the island is so laid back. I love the gorgeous sunrises we get to enjoy every morning on the beach & all the water sports and festivals. We meet so many people from all over the world, share stories, and become friends for a life time. Sharing our island with others & watch their enthusiasm rise to a level where they can't wait to return is very rewarding to me. We aim to please & look forward to a lasting friendship.

Close to Tybee Beach, awesome quaint cottage! Front porch, back porch and porch swings so cool!
Love Flamingo Cottage! Will rent again! Owners were so gracious and helpful and quick to respond! Wonderful experience all around. Weather was perfect but we thought even if it were rainy staying at Flamingo Cottage would have still been a vacation.
Thanks for your kind remarks. We really take pride in making our guests feel right at home. We have a beautiful island and we love to show it off. Hope you will stay with us again.
Nice clean home. The pool is not heated which was unfortunate, and the hot tub was not working. This was disappointing as were the reasons we chose it. It’s a railroad style so keep this in mind for sleeping arrangements. The kitchen/tv is in front with the three beds in middle with king bed at end. Proved a little difficult when we put kids to bed as we were sequestered to one end of the house with our light sleepers! Right around corner was a huge playground for the kids so that’s a bonus.
Great place to stay!!
The Flamingo cottage is a very sweet place to stay! The house is so bright and eclectic. We had 5 people in our group and it fit us perfectly. The house was also in a perfect spot for going into town, to the beach or getting something to eat. The house was so clean and the porches were just darling. The porch out front is a great place to people watch and the porch out back was the perfect little private hangout spot.
Not to mention, Paul was also extremely helpful. I knew I could text him with any question and have an answer within 30 minutes.
Everyone in our group kept raving about how great the house was. We would totally stay here again!!
Family Weekend Getaway
Pros: This was just what we were looking for. It was a 3 minute walk to the beach, very comfortable home, lovely garden area, which we were able to use for an Easter egg hunt. The owner was very gracious in changing our nights due to an unexpected event. It was clean and cozy. Very colorful. Plenty of storage space.
Cons: It was too cold to swim, and the hot tub water was not even warm, so that was disappointing, but still a beautiful area to hang out. We were hoping to enjoy the fire pit, but the tank was empty and it was late, so we were unable to run to the store for a refill. Random, but important to note, the frying pan was not great, so I would encourage you to bring your own if you enjoy cooking. Out of owner's control, beach construction was going on, so that took away from some of the peacefulness.
Overall, we had a great visit. We all loved it and plan on coming back. Maybe even renting all properties for family gatherings.
One Word, Awesome!
This place is amazing! Affordable, clean, cute,comfortable. Four women on a vacay together can be a bit scary! In this cute beach house we felt we had plenty of room. There are two porches, a pool/hot tub area, two bedrooms and a kitchen/sitting area. Plenty of places to have our private time and when we wanted to hang. The people in the other house have been coming there for many years, that speaks tons. To get to the beach you walk across the street and the length of a building and you are there. The island is 3 miles long so you get anywhere you need to go really fast. The local people are great about telling you places to eat or just talk. What a funky, fun beach house to spend our week. I am so glad I chose this place and my buddies were glad too!
Thank you so much for your awesome review. It means the world to us to have such positive comments. We love repeat customers and strive to make you one. Please let us know what we can do to make you a repeat customer.
