About the property

6 bedroom, 4 bath cottage close to beach with private back deck and fire pit

Coast Awhile has just undergone a major renovation, with an expanded dining room area and farm table that seats 12! We've also added a ping pong table and enlarged one of the downstairs bathrooms. The house is bright, airy and charming, thanks to design work by Jane Coslick who is well-known for saving old Tybee cottages and restoring their charm with lots of white and color accents.

Built in 1930, this is a classic-style beach cottage with a large front screened-in porch, bead board walls and hardwood floors. The main floor has 3 bedrooms, each with a king bed, and 2 bathrooms. All upstairs bedrooms have a flat screen TV. There is also a living room on the main floor with a TV. Downstairs is a bedroom with a king bed, a wonderful bunk room with 4 bunk beds and a third room with two double beds! There are two full baths downstairs. In addition you will find a new ping pong table, plenty of games, washer/dryer, kitchen with bar stools and a dining room with a large table that seats 12. Out back is a deck with an outside shower (with hot water), a fire pit and a grill.

MAX 12 people, please. Parking limited to 5 cars.

About Sherry Holtzclaw

We have lived in Savannah for almost 20 years and bought this house for an easy getaway. Our teenagers love the beach, biking, walking to dinner with friends and just hanging out!

Sherry Holtzclaw purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Sherry Holtzclaw chose Tybee Island

We liked this cottage because it has the charm of an old beach place with all the modern upgrades. It had just been completely renovated when we found it, and we fell in love with it!

What makes this cottage unique

we love sitting on the front porch, watching the bikes go by. The people are all so friendly. We also like the light in the house. The windows are large and the rooms are decorated with a lot of white and bright colors.

Beautiful home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect beach home! We had a group of 11 and the home had more than enough space to accommodate everyone. The huge screened porch and swing we great during the day, and the fire pit kept us warm in the evenings. I will definitely stay here anytime we come to Tybee. Sherry was also very responsive and answered any questions I had.

Loved this beautiful house and location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house for a large group to stay! Everyone had plenty of room to spread out and not feel on top of each other. The large screened in porch with the rocking chairs and large lounging swing was a favorite spot for adults and kids alike. The ping pong table was a plus too for entertaining. We also enjoyed the fire pit one evening. The location is great since it’s less than a 10 minute walk to the beach. The only downside is that there are no bathrooms close to that area of the beach so it’s necessary to walk down to the pier or back to the house and the local grocery store is pretty limited in their selection. (These are very minor) Overall would highly recommend!

Wonderful place for the entire family!

  • 5 of 5

Coast Awhile is the perfect place for a large family. The décor and furnishings are very tasteful and pleasant to be around. We did not use much in the kitchen but it was very well stocked to prepare large meals....lots of silverware, dishes etc.! Highly recommend.

Amazing home- I would stay again.

  • 5 of 5

This home was beautiful and it fit a large group perfectly. There was a large kitchen and patio so that we could gather together. The rooms were very large which was nice because we each had our own space so we could relax. We loved the top porch area. The floors did leave our feet black but the rest of the home was very clean, well decorated, and put together. The location was incredibly close to the beach. We walked there and back easily. I would stay here again.

Great house and decor!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house and the beautiful decor, it sleeps so many people and the beds are all comfortable! My only complaint would be a lack of start up essentials and a much bigger trash can, otherwise it's a fabulous find!
