Cozy Tybee Cottage in Quiet Neighborhood - Walking Distance to the Beach
Discover the quaint coastal charm of Tybee Island from this cottage, a vintage home welcoming guests with a screened-in porch, a shaded backyard, free WiFi, and a great location with easy walking access to all of the island's best attractions.
Walk just a half-mile to North Beach and, on your way, sightsee at historic Fort Screven or the Tybee Island Light Station and Museum. But you'll also be just two miles north of shops and eateries along Tybrisa Street. If you have a larger group, consider renting both this house and the back cottage, Tybee Island Sunset, which has one bedroom, one full bathroom, and space for as many as two people.
Built in 1900, this beautifully preserved home is full of coastal colors, folksy furnishings, and artistic decor. Walk up a few stairs and through a front porch to view its single floor layout with a spacious living area, a full kitchen, three bedrooms, and a back porch. Spend some time in the gentle breeze from the overhead fan in the living area, or flip on the 60-inch flatscreen TV for DVD and cable entertainment.
Peer out over the neighborhood from a sofa and Adirondack chairs on the front porch, or head out back to sip sweet tea in the shade of Live Oak trees. You'll certainly love the backyard options, which include two tables for al fresco dining (one even with an umbrella), plus tropical landscaping and a screened-in porch attached to the house that overlooks it all.
Feeling hungry? Whip up a homemade meal back inside in the well-equipped kitchen. It features all that you'll need for whipping up fresh feasts while you're here, and there's even group seating at tables by the kitchen, on the back porch, and in the backyard.
Afterward, toss your dishes in the dishwasher, your clothes in the washer/dryer, and head to bed. Up to six guests are accommodated on queen beds in two bedrooms and twin beds in a third bedroom. Additional bedroom amenities include ceiling fans, reading lamps, and large picture windows with privacy curtains.
Whether you're looking for fun in town or relaxation on the beach, you'll find it all on Tybee Island. Reserve your spot on a fishing charter, or schedule surfing lessons on the beach. You could also explore the marshlands of the Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge by kayak, or head into Savannah (17 miles west) to sample the city scene.

Thursday upon check in, the code they gave us didn’t work, I called to get someone to the home because we had dinner plans with family that we haven’t seen in 10 years. I was told someone would be at the house to see what was going within the hour, nobody showed so I had to stay behind and missed dinner with family I haven’t seen in 10 yrs. Nobody ever showed up. Not even a phone call. Not lighting on front porch at night, have 2 elderly people in the home not safe. The house was not clean sand on the floors. In order to sit on front porch we had to clean it. Medication was left from previous stay once again not safe. Elderly family member was sitting in chair and it broke and he hit the floor hard, 2nd chair broke my sister-in-law of 90 pounds. Grill did not work and we had to make other cooking arrangements.a jug of cleaner was left on dresser once again not safe. Couch was dirty. Dryer needs cleaning major fire hazard. Husband is retired Fire fighter and has been to numerous house fires because of built up. Freezer needs to be cleaned. The house is cute, however poor lighting. Neighbor hood was very quiet which we enjoyed. Not enough bath towels and washcloths for 6 people. Thursday evening I can never get back with my family. Unfortunately I have pictures but I can’t post! Paying for a cleaning deposit and home not being clean they are making money off of this.

My family and I loved staying at Tybee Island Sunrise! I absolutely love anything vintage and was so nice to see this home so well cared for! It was both comfortable and cozy for us all! Plenty of room for my 3 kiddos to run around! The neighbors were so friendly in the area and very helpful as well!
I highly recommend staying at Tybee Sunrise! Also the staff with Vacasa were more than helpful and it is so appreciated! Highly recommend Vacasa anytime!

It’s close to everything. Quiet neighborhood.
Marta W.Sep 2022
We loved staying in this charming cottage. We didn't realize it was nearly 1 mile to the beach, but got in some good walking. Loved the tables out back and the interesting neighborhood. Wish there was an outdoor shower, but we made do with the water hose so we didn't track sand inside. Communication was a bit slow up front, but the team was great and immediately replied to our texts as need arose.
Jason E.Jul 2022
The home was nicely setup. It had all the amenities of home and plenty of space for a group of people visiting Tybee.
John A.Jul 2022
We loved spending our long holiday weekend at the Sunrise. The AC worked wonderfully, the endless hot water made for great after beach showers for our whole party. And we loved being within a five minute walk of the serene beach & the awesome sea Wolf restaurant. Staying out of our car and on foot made our short vacation all the more relaxing.
Yevangelina R.May 2022
Cute and has all essentials. Very walkable/driveable to beach and some restaurants. The porch is lovely to sit on. Neighborhood is quiet and tucked away. Only issue was that it really wasn’t amazingly clean (the floor particularly).
Jonathan C.Apr 2022
Extremely happy with our stay! The house was located on a quiet dead end road. All the amenities were fully stocked and house was clean on arrival.

Charming house. Perfect for a family vacation.

This adorable cottage is everything you could want for a stay on Tybee. So many special touches to make you comfy and at home. Older, historic residential neighborhood, convenient to restaurants, shopping and beach. Love it!
Jon P.Jul 2020
While the rental was very nice and offered everything we needed for our stay, the entire house could use a good cleaning. There were leftover eggs in one of the pans we pulled from the cabinet. The outdoor areas don’t look as if they’ve been swept in a long while.
Jon, we appreciate your feedback. We apologize if the cleanliness of the home left something to be desired, and we will follow-up with our housekeeping team to see that future cleans are completed to our standards. We hope to host you again in the future.

I loved the beautiful cottage and it's location! The only thing missing was steak knives! We had to use one of the large knives. Loved it and will be back!

This was such a nice place. Its an older home with alot of beauty

House was amazing. Will be back again soon!

This was our first trip to Tybee for a girls weekend. This house was perfect with 1 exception. If you stay during the winter months make sure you plan accordingly. The electric fireplace keeps the family room toasty, but at night the bedrooms got quite cold. We would not hesitate to stay again, making sure we were better prepared. The house has everything that we needed and is so convenient to the beach, shopping and easy access to Savannah. We really enjoyed it so much!
Echo M.Sep 2019
The house was cute and in a great spot. Just needs more than 1 bathroom for 6 people. They only left 1 trashbag and were there for 5 days. I would have brought some if I would have known that I needed to. The tv in the bedroom had a cable box but would not work. Also the door to that room would barely close and could not lock it. Great to have a place to be able to cook at and not have to spend a lot of money eating out all the time.
Hi, Echo! Thank you for staying with us! The owner is coming to stay and will be addressing the TV and bedroom lock at that time. We hope to see you again!

The right size and location for a relaxing break.

It's a unique and attractive little cottage and had everything we needed for a lovely visit--a pleasant porch for entertaining, a dining spot on the back porch, a beautiful live oak full of birds to watch. We loved it.
Jillian B.Dec 2018
House was perfect. It smelled good when we first walked in, everything was very clean, and it looked just like the pictures. The shower was nice. Such a cute home for such a great deal! The beach and the lighthouse was about a 12 minute walk away. There was a gas station about a 2 minute walk away. There were tons of restaurants that were within a 5 minute driving distance. We would stay here again and again!!

The charm of Tybee Island comes alive in this quant beautiful cottage. Step back in time with the heartpine floors & tongue & grove walls & ceilings. Even the bathroom offers surprises with its "Where's Waldo Appeal". You will not be disappointed with this Island Sunrise. We will visit Tybee Island again & again to stay in what we felt was our home away from home.
Jennifer B.May 2018
Quaint, 1920’s cottage. Close walk to beach and local restaurants. Was a fantastic place to relax and spend time with a friend!
Christopher G.Apr 2018
We visited this gorgeous Tybee Island holiday home as a family with our 2 children aged 1 and 7. From the minute we parked up we knew it was somewhere special. The location is ideal for complete relaxation surrounded by beautiful greenery and wildlife. The house itself is stunning. It is so quaint and quirky, we all absolutely loved it. There is lots of space inside with really comfortable beds. The bathroom is superb with its unique memory wall - every time we went in the bathroom we spotted something new on the wall! The kitchen had everything you needed including microwave, superb cooking utensils and pans etc. Loved the lounge, my husband was so pleased to be able to catch an English game of football on the TV. It was so clean and functional. Couldn't complain at all.
The only thing we struggled with was that it had no cot and no highchair for our baby. But, there's a Walmart 15 minutes away so we picked up a travel cot to use during our stay. Vacasa did mention you can rent a cot and highchair locally but it was cheaper to buy a new one and bring it back with us.
We would highly recommend this beautiful villa, without hesitation, and I am a person with high expectations and I want a lot for my money. This was a lovely place on a lovely island which now has a special place in our hearts. Thank you.
Jessy G.Apr 2018
This is a cute rental within walking distance to North Beach, the lighthouse, North Beach Bar and Grille, local craft shops, Gerald’s Pig and Shrimp and 80 E Gastropub! Had a great time at the family friendly North Beach swimming and finding sea shells! We went on Captain Mike’s dolphin tour and saw several dolphins! We also enjoyed Coco’s and a day trip to beautiful Savannah! My only complaint is we got stuck in long traffic lines on a Saturday trying to to find parking near South Beach and eventually gave up our search and went back to North Beach after 30 minutes of trying. We went back to South beach during the following Monday and parking was no issue.
Keith S.Feb 2018
Visited Tybee Island and Savannah on a scouting mission looking for places to rent as we are moving to the Savannah area in April. This house was perfect! Nothing too fancy, just a great little beach bungalow perfect for a small family. Short walk to the beach and lighthouse! Would definitely stay here again!
Lindsay B.Nov 2017
This was an excellent place for our family of 5. Our 3 children (ages 10,6 and 1) had a wonderful time. There was plenty of space to relax. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to cook breakfast and lunch. The house has clean and beds were comfortable. The beach and lighthouse is an easy 10-15 minute walk. We will definitely be back again.

Delightfully peaceful stay in your cottage. Quite, safe neighborhood, close enough to beach and lighthouse for a scenic walk. Convenient to restaurants and easy walk to a grocery for forgotten food items for stay in meals!
Jerry S.Oct 2017
It was exactly how we envisioned a quaint old beach vacation home. Much more room than a hotel and similar in price.
Melissa W.Aug 2017
Our family had a great stay in tybee island. It was our first trip and we plan to come back again. The house was just close enough to the beach and just far from the hustle at the other end of the island to give is the quiet, before school vacation we were looking for.
TAMMY B.Aug 2017
We had a great time and love the house it is a beautiful place to stay.
