Originally the cottage was built as a garage, it was also thought to have been used as servant’s quarters for a neighboring home and was left vacant and neglected for many years, most recently being used as a storage building; it was completely renovated and decorated with the help of local designer Jane Coslick and most recently updated in 2012. This little adorable 1950's honeymoon cottage offers eclectic furnishings, antiques, tile floors, and an I-pod docking station, and is so quiet and comfortable you may not want to leave! Located mid-island near the marsh; 3 blocks away from the back river beach where you can watch sunsets, go f...ishing, or just relax on the beach, only 6 blocks (1/4 mile) to main beach. Nicely furnished screened porch floor is made from salvaged Savannah grey-bricks and topped with tin roof, perfect sitting for afternoon showers.
Private parking is available for 2 cars and room for a small boat, too. Wireless High Speed Internet/WIFI is available for guest use.

As long as you like small, Sea Biscuit is just the ticket. Set in a quiet neighborhood away from the noise, it was perfectly set up for myself and my girlfriend. Easy access to everything you could need, yet secluded as well. The screened in porch was perfect at night to relax in and the set up in the house maximized the use of space. Strongly recommended by me. :)- Dylan

A wonderful place with all that you will need for two. We spent much of our time in Savannah or biking around Tybee. The Cottage was well equipped and wonderfully decorated. It is small, though. But that did not matter for us. Tybee Vacation Rentals made check-in and check-out a breeze. Thanks!

We had a wonderful stay at the Sea Biscuit Cottage. Spent a week for our honeymoon. Grilled out almost every night. The tiny bedroom is so cozy, and the kitchen has everything you need (bring your own spices, though!). My wife isn't the sitting-outdoors-type, but I loved sitting on the porch every morning for an hour with coffee and a book while she slept in. It is wedged between two other houses, but somehow the place still feels quiet and secluded. Other things:
-plenty of hot water
-the stovetop is tiny, but the outdoor grill is massive!
-it's humid down there, so the place gets musty quickly. Turn on the air for a little bit, or bring a de-humidifier and it'll clear up quickly.
-Wi-Fi is a *little* slow. Don't expect to stream any high-quality video
-the air is so damp that towels don't dry on the rack. hang them up on the shower curtain rod instead
Overall, a great, relaxing vacation with my wife. We wanted to get away from everything at the end of a long summer, and this was a great place to come and unplug for a week!
It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the pier/beach. Only about 5 minutes to aj's for a drink. 30 minute drive to Savannah.
Quiet and cozy!

Loved my little solo retreat in this adorable little cottage! Tybee Vacation Rentals has always been great - easy in and out and love the little care package at arrival. This little place was on a residential street toward the back of the island - very peaceful and quiet, but of course you can still walk everywhere on Tybee. It's right down the street from the IGa, so that is convenient! Adorable little place for one or 2 people, would definitely stay again.

Perfect for two. Loved sitting out on the porch morning, day and night. The beach is within walking distance (.25 miles). Other locals and tourists were very nice when we were out and about. We were able to keep to ourselves and truly relax. Most peaceful vacation stay ever.
This was a great little find!

The Sea Biscuit Cottage was a great find! Perfect for two. My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves. We would wake up and have coffee on the screened-in porch and have a glass of wine in the evening. Great little side yard for relaxing and grilling. Plenty of cool shade during the day. Located just a short distance from al's, my husband and I rode our bikes over for an appetizer and drink while we watched dolphins swimming in the lagoon. It is a small cottage and was difficult for my husband to stretch himself out of the couch, but as I reminded him, we weren't there to lounge on the couch and watch TV all day!
The staff at Tybee Vaction Rentals were very pleasant and helpful!

We could not be happier with our experience at The Sea Biscuit. It was everything I was hoping for and more. The cottage is set back on a very treed lot, making you feel secluded,even though you there are houses on both sides of you. The screened porch is adorable and the a amentities were great. The gas grill was brand new and the landscaping was very well maintained. Definitely bring your bikes, as it is centrally located and you can get anywhere you want within 5 minutes. Great stay; can't wait to go back!

Set amongst the stately trees, this little cottage is just the perfect getaway for two. Nicely appointed, with full kitchen and outside grill, it is convenient to the main drag and the beach. Quiet time of the year (except for New Year's fireworks at midnight 12/31), cool weather and plenty to see and do (Savannah just 20 minutes away, Fort Pulaski, Fort Screven, the lighthouse, the beaches and waterways). Wish there were more time to stay.

We greatly enjoyed our time at the Sea Biscuit Cottage! We were looking for a small, quiet spot near the beach, where we could be undisturbed for our week-long vacation. We really couldn't have asked for a more perfect stay.
The Sea Biscuit Cottage was the perfect size for just the two of us, and contained all the supplies we needed for our stay. We enjoyed the screened-in porch many mornings, while drinking our coffee, and also found the grill extremely handy. It was quiet around our cottage, but there were many destinations within walking distance, which we took advantage of.
The staff of Tybee Vacation Rentals was extremely accessible to us the entire time, but they were also very sensitive to our privacy, which we greatly appreciated.
It was such a wonderful trip, with great memories, thanks in part to the ease of working with Tybee Vacation Rentals. We will be back!

We can't say enough wonderful things about Sea Biscuit Cottage and Tybee Island! This quaint, charming cottage had everything we needed and them some. A very short walk from the beach, Sea Biscuit Cottage reminded us that it's all about quality, not quantity. The eclectic, yet classic decor makes you feel like you're in an actual home, welcoming you from the moment you walk in the door. We will certainly be back!

This is a great spot for couples. We loved making breakfast here and eating it on the porch listening to the birds sing. It was very peaceful. You are so close to everything but yet feel so far away tucked back into the trees. It was just what we needed.
Special shout out to the manager (Amy I believe is her name) who came to our rescue the first night of our stay when we locked ourselves out! She came to our rescue within 20 minutes after our call! Thank you sooo much!
Just a note: Maybe you could put a power cord for the appliances so that we wouldn't have to move things around to turn them on at awkward angles.

The Seabiscuit cottage was a quaint and relaxing. I loved the shabby chic decorating. It was so nice to be able to go back to the cottage every day to just relax. We took daily runs around the island and then went down to the beach to listen to the ocean. The sunsets on the back bay were gorgeous.
I love this cozy cottage.

On Tybee I thought the accomidations would not mean much. I thought the best attractions would be out of the house.We changed plans once settled into this adorable cottage. We walked to the market and used the fully stocked kitchen to prepare our meals. We were able to bask in areas of sun and shade within the yard. We ended up not getting out as much as planned because our Tybee cottage was paradise.

The cottage is too cute! It's just right for 2 people and the decorating scheme is very quaint. 5 minute walk to the beach, 15 minute drive to Savannah, lovely homes around you, a great restaurant (A.J.'s) a 5 minute walk away, who could ask for more?
The only thing I would change is the futon - a bit uncomfortable, a small loveseat would be a better fit.

Great cozy retreat tucked away from busier areas of Tybee Island, but still within walking distance of the action. Loved the screened-in porch to relax with a beverage. Only negative is that the yard doesn't have much grass, so with our 20 month old along, she really couldn't run around outside. Would love to go back soon!
Great stay! Aesome place!

I fell in love with Tybee at Seabiscuit cottage! So convenient to the strand and restaurants, esp. by bike, the only way to travel on Tybee! Quiet, clean, adorable, and TVR was so friendly and easy to work with. How I wish I lived closer so I could visit often! We will be back to Tybee someday! I visited with my mom, and the cottage is perfect for two. I hope to come with my kids some day, so we will have to stay elsewhere, but we will definitely use TVR. Tybee is casual but not gritty, upscale but not pretentious. It's perfect. The four star review on comfort relates to the air conditioning unit. If you stay hot, it would not cool enough for you. But we were there in July, so in cooler months this is likely not an issue. I would stay here again for sure! Bring your bug spray! Biking helps tremendously with the gnats; we did not notice them at all on our bikes. Enjoy!

My husband and I absolutely loved the Sea Bisquit Cottage. It was just big enough for the two of us to relax and enjoy our 6 night stay on Tybee Island. We had everything we needed to live comfortably and feel right at home. The location of the Cottage is ideal for walking to the beach at night or eating dinner after a long day in the sun. We enjoyed working out at the local Ymca and spent one night walking across the enitre island itself. We loved being able to walk to our destinations instead of having to drive and pay to park. The neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful and sitting out on the screened in porch in the early mornings was a delight. Almost everyday we traveled into Savannah and fell in love with the rich historical aspect of the city along with the friendly people and lovely atmosphere. The local restaurants were fantastic and we tried something new everyday. Our favorite dining experience was aj's on Tybee Island. We loved the short walk to the restaurant and the food was excellent. We waited a little longer just to have a seat out on the deck to watch the sunset on the water. All in all we made some memories that will last us a lifetime. We hope to come back to the Sea Bisquit Cottage soon and look forward to the gracious hospitality we were shown. Thank you so much Tybee Vacation Rentals for a lovely vacation!

A Charming Bohemian Getaway
Left on 05/24/2011 for a stay in April 2011 | Per and Beth
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Seabiscuit Cottage for a week and loved it. It's the perfect place for a couple's little bohemian getaway. Set way back from the road, everything we needed was there, including all the electronics and kitchen stuff one would need. It has a few quirks, like how everything has to be a little bit smaller to fit in a space this size, but nothing subtracted from the charm of the cottage.
I think our favorite part was the screened-in porch where we were able to relax for long periods of time and watch the surprising variety of birds, as well as some squirrels, play in the yard.
My opinion is that the Seabiscuit is for couples, or even an individual, with a bohemian sort of mindset. Basically, it's more charming than fancy. Anyway, totally recommended.
Great place to relax

The Sea Biscuit Cottage was adorable. Check in was very easy. The location was great - we were able to walk to the business areas and local restaurants. The cottage was charming, cute, small but practical, and everything was in order. There are space heaters in the winter and a window air conditioning unit for the summer. There was plenty to do and we did the following even in December - lighthouse tour, rented bikes, rented kayaks, hiked along the beach, restaurants, bars, casino boat, and nearby Savannah.

We found the cottage to be extremely accommodating. Everything you need and want is there. We spent 4 nights and we wanted to spend more. The island was amazing/food was yum and the people at Tybee Vacation Rentals were VERY helpful.
We were welcomed with a honeymoon gift bag and champagne that brought smiles to our faces after a long day of traveling.
Thank you all so much for a wonderful stay.

We have never stayed in Tybee before, but needed to find a place to stay so we could attend a friend's wedding. We found "Sea Biscuit Cottage" on VRBO and decided to book it. We weren't really sure what to expect, but were thrilled to find the Vacation Rental office clean, easy to get to, organized, and very friendly!
We LOVED our little cottage. It was absolutely perfect for the two of us. We had everything we needed and were very comfortable. The welcome bag that was left for us was such a sweet extra touch! And I couldn't help but notice how truly clean everything was. Not just tidy, but very well kept.
We were close enough to everything and felt very safe in the location. I love how the cottage is tucked back just far enough that you almost miss it if you blink as you're driving by.
Especially, I like that I felt as though I were really being treated to a vacation. I didn't get the impression that I am just another tourist, but another owner (at least in my heart) of that little home. Tybee Vacation Rentals could not have done a more superb job in making our stay more enjoyable. I have absolutely nothing bad to say. :)
Peace & "Quiet" Among the Cicadas & Mosquitos
Left on 09/02/2009 for a stay in August 2009 | cleomol
One of the best decisions I've made when looking for a place to stay out of the beaten path was going to Tybee Vacation Rentals (TVR). I was treated courteously, given lots of information, and help in finding accommodations that were within our budget. My husband & I had already spent several days in downtown Atlanta in a hotel and just wanted a place to rest & recuperate. Sea Biscuit Cottage was perfect - had all the amenities, located in a quiet neighborhood, was within walking distance of the beach and the shops & restaurants, and had its own unique charm. I had forgotten how loud cicadas can be but we soon got used to them and actually enjoyed their "music." It would have helped us to be reminded of the mosquitos so that we could have come prepared (they seem to be especially attracted to me) but a quick trip to the IGA for repellent helped. Overall, the service from TVR staff was excellent with good follow-up on email reminding us about check-in times & procedures; very friendly and accommodating as well as very clear instructions about what was expected from us. We will definitely contact TVR again when planning another visit.
Absolutely adorable; perfect.

The Seabiscuit was as cute and cozy as could be.There was much attention to detail both in decorating and practicality. I especially loved the screened porch in the mornings and enjoyed watching the birds and squirrel while drinking my coffee. The cottage was comfortable and adorably cute and the location was convenient. Also,the staff at TVR was helpful and courteous. I want to go back soon!

We enjoyed the experience of staying in this Little refinished Garage. In fact so much that we have booked another place just like it on the other end of the island. We have been vacationing to Tybee for over 7 years. This by far was our Favorite stay! We were close enough to the Beach to pack a cooler and the wagon provided and walk. Plus the grocery store was also within an easy walking distance. I have to admit I will probably miss the location and convinience this year. I don't know if any trip could have been so laid back and relaxing!!

We just spent a wonderful week at the Seabiscuit and had a fabulous time. This is
the first time that we stayed in a cottage instead of a hotel -- and it was perfect. We loved leaving our car in the driveway and riding bicycles all over the island! The pictues didn't even do it justice. When we pulled up in the driveway and stepped out of the car for the first time we instantly felt relaxed! We'd definitely recommend this perfect little cottage. I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE the paper lanterns on the screened in porch! All of the little details of the decor were so interesting. I could go on and on! It is just absolutely PERFECT for two people! We also loved reading the guest book that was in the living room with all of the people who had stayed there in the past's experiences and resturant reccomendations! I cannot wait to come back to Tybee!

We had been talking about Tybee for several years, and this was our year. We loved it! The Cottage was cozy, quaint and very nice. The decor was beautiful and it made you feel so at home. The Cottage was in a perfect location, good for walks to the beach and the back water, walking into town or just strolling the island. It was as "cute as a button!" I recommend a visit and a stay to Tybee Island, and I do recommend the Seabiscuit for your stay, especially if you are looking to have the perfect, romantic vacation!

My husband and I were looking for a place to spend 3 to 4 days for our 10th wedding anniversary that was within a couple of hours drive from where we live. We found it at the Sea Biscuit Cottage in Tybee Island, GA. It was just as cute on the inside as on the outside and the most perfect place we could have asked for: quiet, within a few blocks of the ocean, and with all the amenities we could have asked for. When we arrived there was a bottle of champagne along with a card wishing us a happy anniversary. That was such a nice touch. When we have the opportunity we will definitely stay there again.

We found this place after searching other options for a weekend rental on Tybee. The Price was right and although it was a little bit small, we didnt come to the beach to sit in the house all day. Its perfect for a couple going on the cheap. The only complaint would be to have a more comfortable couch. The location was great, just a short drive or stroll to the beach. It is in a quiet area and was very private considering that there are houses on either side.
