Sea Stars Cottage!

History: Sea Stars Cottage (aka the “Judkins-Seay” Cottage to Tybee historians) is an original Raised Tybee Cottage, a unique style of residential architecture that was introduced on Tybee Island after completion of the Tybee Road in 1923. The lovingly restored cottage was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2017! Percy Judkins, the owner of the Savannah Planing Mill Company, built the cottage in 1932 as a summer retreat, but also intended the cottage to serve as an advertisement and showcase for his company’s products. You’ll find his company stamp is prominently affixed to nearly every structural pier and beam on the ground level. Premium building materials were used throughout, from the soft Georgia pine perimeter fencing to the wrap-around lattice, to the interior of the cottage which features the original “Heart Of Pine” woodwork, perhaps one of the last of the Raised Tybee Cottages to remain untouched and in pristine condition.

Newly updated Fall 2016 with a brand new Jack and Jill bathroom!

Original heart pine wood on the walls and floors, large wraparound porch with EIGHT rocking chairs.

Located in the South end of Tybee- one block from the beach and 2 blocks to "downtown Tybee". Pets welcome, cottage has a fenced yard. Back deck off the kitchen to enjoy the morning sun. Full of original local art and decorated in the "shabby chic" cottage style.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved our stay at the Sea Stars Cottage! The cottage is big with a historic New England feel-- lots of rich, dark woods inside, but with beachy, Tybee-color accents throughout. Plenty of room for extended families to spread out, read, and visit, with multiple common areas both inside and outside including a wrap-around porch with rocking chairs. AND the cottage is just a few houses back from the beach! We loved the long, indoor sun porch, and enjoyed our meals on the sunny back deck-- even though it was January! For winter stays, the home is super-warm and cozy with a powerful central heater, and cozy "fire logs" in the living room. The kitchen is bright and airy-- fun to drink the Mermaid Morning Bliss coffee and feel the ocean breezes from the back deck. Loved it! #visittybee #mermaidcottages

Reviewer Comments:

We loved staying in this beautiful home. It has all the charm of an older home with modern conveniences. Our favorite part of the house is the 3 showers downstairs to rinse off in after our beach days. It is just a short walk from the beach. We loved our stay there.

Reviewer Comments:

Sea Stars was just the right size for our family and pets. We spent a lot of time on the front porch. You can walk to the beach but we always drove because of all the gear. We visited during spring break so there was a lot of foot traffic in front of the house which included late at night. You can hear people talking as they walk by and the apartments/condos to the right of the house had a lot of loud, late parties. The house is older so there aren’t a lot of plug-ins and some of the rooms were dark and a little musty. Overall we had a great visit to Tybee! Highly recommend Bubba Gumbo’s and the Cafe On 80 Deli and Bakery.

Owner's Response: Come and stay with us again ~ either at Sea Stars during a different time of year OR at a different cottage in a different location. ;) Sea Stars is definitely close to the beach and our downtown area, and spring break is a busy time, but that's part of the charm of being a prime beach home. Come see us again! ~ Jennifer & the Mermaids

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at Sea Stars Cottage in late March 2018. This was our first time staying on Tybee Island. In the past we have always stayed in Savannah and made day trips to Tybee. I don't think we'll do that again! Sea Stars is just as depicted in the photos - very clean, full of character, with lots of places to gather or sneak off and find some peace and quiet. The management was very helpful - two glitches in our stay were met with immediate assistance (the lock box would not open upon arrival and the kitchen did not have any dish towels or pot holders). We were a bit surprised that the kitchen, although well-equipped with pots, pans, dishes etc, did not have any staples other than coffee and sugar packets. There was not any salt or pepper, oil or cooking spray. BUT we loved spending time on the porch and at the beach. The location was just perfect.

The pictures did not do the property justice. The Sea Star Cottage was extremely roomy, beautifully decorated, very well equipped and spotless. Loved, loved the cottage overall and the location was walking distance to the beach, restuarants and shops. The staff was also very attentive. I would highly recommend this home and Mermaid Cottages overall. We had a fantastic end of the year vacation. I couldn't be happier.
