  • Perfect in every way!


    This home and location were perfect for our stay. We wanted somewhere within a reasonable drive to Hilton Head and Savannah, but a quiet place to relax at night. This place and the hosts did not disappoint. We enjoyed catching crabs off the dock and nights on the covered patio. We would stay here again. 10/10!

    From the owner: "It was a pleasure having this guest at our home. They left it in really great condition. They are welcome back any time!"

  • Peaceful Retreat


    My wife and I stayed here for a couples getaway and really enjoyed ourselves. The owners have done an excellent job creating a peaceful and relaxing space. The home is was very clean and thought was put into the entire guest experience. From water bottles in the fridge, bath soaps and lotions, and coffee selections - you can show up and simply unwind. We spent most of our time out during the days - visiting Savannah, Tybee Island, and Hilton Head Island. It was a great place to come home to each evening. Communication was excellent and we had an great experience!

  • Perfect for a little R&R!


    We booked this property for some family time and rest and relaxation before some busy weeks to come. We really just wanted to decompress and stay in a quiet little cottage to spend time together. This place was perfect! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was very cute and cozy, and we even managed to catch a good amount of crabs with the provided traps. We also took a day trip to Savannah, which was only 40 minutes away. We loved spending time in the backyard and just enjoying the nature. The hosts were very gracious and easy to contact with any concerns. Would love to come back in the future!

  • Cute little cottage


    Such a cute cottage and the home decor was beautiful! The owners stayed in contact and made sure we were ok! They were very welcoming! We were busy going places so we didn’t spend too much time there but would love to plan a non busy trip soon and stay and enjoy the cottage a little more!
