About the property

6 bedroom, 4 bath cottage close to beach

Coast Awhile has just undergone a major renovation, with an expanded dining room area and farm table that seats 12! We've also added a ping pong table and enlarged one of the downstairs bathrooms. The house is bright, airy and charming, thanks to design work by Jane Coslick, well-known for her work saving old Tybee cottages and restoring their charm with lots of white and color accents.

Built in 1930, this is a classic-style beach cottage with a large front screened-in porch, bead board walls and hardwood floors. The main floor has 3 bedrooms, each with a king bed, and 2 bathrooms. All upstairs bedrooms have a flat screen TV. There is also a living room on the main floor with a TV. Downstairs is a bedroom with a king bed, a wonderful bunk room with 4 bunk beds and a third room with two double beds! There are two full baths downstairs. In addition you will find a kid's playroom, washer/dryer, kitchen with bar stools and a dining room with a large table that seats 12. Out back is a deck with an outside shower (with hot water), a fire pit and a grill.

MAX 12 people, please. Parking limited to 5 cars.

Amazing home- I would stay again.

  • 5 of 5

This home was beautiful and it fit a large group perfectly. There was a large kitchen and patio so that we could gather together. The rooms were very large which was nice because we each had our own space so we could relax. We loved the top porch area. The floors did leave our feet black but the rest of the home was very clean, well decorated, and put together. The location was incredibly close to the beach. We walked there and back easily. I would stay here again.

Great house and decor!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house and the beautiful decor, it sleeps so many people and the beds are all comfortable! My only complaint would be a lack of start up essentials and a much bigger trash can, otherwise it's a fabulous find!

What a retreat. We cannot say enough about this house, it is beautiful, perfect, and has been such a blessing. We had seen the pictures, but when you see the house it is hard to believe how much space you actually have. We had 10 people and were amazed the versatility of the house. There was space for us to be together as well as enough room for us not to feel like we were on top of each other. The beds were wonderful. The owner was kind and helpful with all questions before and during our visit. We will be back!

Beautiful, Large Home Close to the Ocean

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time here. The location is convenient to the ocean. There is a grocery story within walking distance. We used the firepit and my 9 year old loved the room with the four bunk beds. Two large masters with bathrooms, and large secondary bedrooms, but my favorite was the porch swing.

Owner's Response: The kids all love the bunk room. They each have their own space to store their special treasures! So glad you had a great time.

About Sherry Holtzclaw

We have lived in Savannah for almost 20 years and bought this house for an easy getaway. Our teenagers love the beach, biking, walking to dinner with friends and just hanging out!

Sherry Holtzclaw purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Sherry Holtzclaw chose Tybee Island

We liked this cottage because it has the charm of an old beach place with all the modern upgrades. It had just been completely renovated when we found it, and we fell in love with it!

What makes this cottage unique

we love sitting on the front porch, watching the bikes go by. The people are all so friendly. We also like the light in the house. The windows are large and the rooms are decorated with a lot of white and bright colors.

Car: recommended

Our house is located on Tybee's bike route, so it is quiet and peaceful. The grocery, restaurants and shopping are minutes away by foot or by bike. The beach is three short blocks from the house and access to the Back River is a 5 minute bike ride. Golf cart rentals are also available on the island for getting around.
