“a special location”

Reviewed 24 Jun 2015

Given the distance from Scotland we decided to extend a conference trip to Savannah to include a holiday. Internet research indicated Tybee Island to be the obvious option, although it looked crowded over developed for our taste. We opted for the cottage on Horsepen Creek because it was away from the crowded sea front and came with the option of using a Canadian canoe. It proved to be a lucky find. The cottage itself is clean and very simple with a decidedly old fashioned, homely feel. No ultra modern designer interior, dish or clothes washer but everything else you would need. Everything is practical and works. We didn't use the TV or DVD player but made good use of the good Wi-Fi connection. The real plus of the property is its central location on the Island. All the Island attractions, the beaches, restaurants, lighthouse, pier etc. are just a short easy walk or bike ride away. The back yard with access to the private floating deck on the creek is magical, particularly in the quiet of early morning and at sunset, with plenty opportunity to view the wildlife. It gives the illusion of wilderness because the friendly neighbours are largely screened by trees. The owner could not have been more helpful, promptly answered our questions and sent us very useful information about tides in the creek and how to get out to the uninhabited Little Tybee Island. We enjoyed our Tybee holiday more than we expected largely due to the special location of this property and the helpfulness of the owner.

“Wonderful stay...”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2014

This cottage is a hidden gem. It's spacious enough to comfortably house a family of five and has amazing dock/creek access. We enjoyed many hours on the dock. The beach is a quick ten minute walk away. I would highly recommend the TI Vacation Cottage interested in a weekend or week long getaway.

“Fun times on Tybee”

Reviewed 6 Jun 2014

Bob just wanted to send you a little note to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at the Tybee cottage last weekend, it was truly a great experience. Aniston our daughter and Georgia our Lab had so much fun exploring in the creek. The cottage was nice and provided everything that we needed but the best part was the back yard/dock and views. We spent a lot of our time out there, and listening to the sounds of the marsh at night was great. I just happen to have my parents staying with us before leaving and was telling them about our trip and about Mosby the cat, funny thing my mom was reading a novel in which they had used him in the story, so after doing some research on the Grey Ghost I got a good education lesson and understand why he got that name as I was only briefly able to see him as he scattered back across the street and blended in after getting a little meal. I attached a couple of pictures, one was a pretty good panoramic view that I got one morning of the creek at high tide. Look forward to visiting many more times in the future, my little one is already talking about going back. Thank again Jeff Yeomans

Nice, clean, and quite. Nice I could take my dog. Great location and a shot walk to the beach. Looking forward to my next trip.

“Relax, reconnect, renew”

Reviewed 2 Apr 2014

What a nice comfy cottage. Went there with friends to renew friendships and create some new ones. It was the perfect place to come home to every evening. Lots of great home cooking, fun, laughs and relaxing. It was a weekend we will all remember, and this cozy little cottage, with it's lovely views of the marsh and creek, will be at the center of them. The dock was a great place to sit out under the stars and tell secrets, make toasts and reconnect to dear friends. Thank you for sharing this wonderful place, with it's homey, comfortable feeling, with us. We all fell in love with Tybee, and we will be back to the island, and to this cottage.

Reviewed 20 Mar 2014

My daughter and I stayed in the cottage and it was perfect for us. We were able to walk from it to anywhere on the island easily and it was always nice to return to the quiet, private, cozy cottage and relax and cook our own meals. It's on a nice street, at the quiet end, that doesn't feel touristy at all. The neighbors were very quiet. It was a treat to have the creek in the back, where you might see an egret or heron in the morning. Mr. Hunter made our stay easy and fun by giving us lots of useful information and recommendations about things to do and see in the area. If you are looking for a place to relax and reconnect with friends or family, this is it!

“Perfect unfussy getaway”

Reviewed 18 Mar 2014

What a terrific retreat for a long weekend! The house is clean, well-stocked, and un-fussy, on a residential street not far from the 6th street beach access. The backyard is on the Horsepen Creek marsh, and is quiet and peaceful. Close to restaurants, the IGa store, and pleasant walks.

“Great time on Tybee.”

Reviewed 21 Feb 2014

The cottage was clean and comfortable. We were just seconds from the beach and everything Tybee has to offer. Every visit to the creek was a suprise, dolphins, birds, mullet jumping, never a dull moment. We will be back for sure.

“Relaxing!”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2013

My husband and I stayed here July 26 - 28, 2013. The house has everything you need for cooking, grilling and eating. Just bring food and clothes. My husband and I fished and crabbed. I ventured out in the kayak. I love taking pictures and took a lot while there. Close to the beach. Loved it and hope to return for another stay.

“wonderful cottage”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2013

We've stayed at Bob Hunter's cottage for several years and had a grand time each visit. The dock, creek and canoe make for fun and great nature watching, and if you get up early you can sometimes see the 4' great blue heron that stands at the back of the yard watching the marsh for fish and crabs. The cottage is an easy ~1/2 mile walk to the beech and away from the hubbub of Butler av. and downtown Tybee. Already made our reservation for next year!
