“Nice cottage, GREAT POOL, BUT a few things we were not happy with.”

The cottage was very nice, the POOL was great! BUT, please be advised that the owner of the cottage owns the cottage NEXT door. the area is completely fenced in BUT you are fenced in with that cottage also. (we needed a fenced in area so that our dogs could be out when we were in the pool). Drive way was small/short and made parking more than one car impossible. We had three vehicles (two trucks and one SUV, my parents and daughter came down at different times.) NO oven, only a toaster oven. Washing Machine had missing part and we were not able to wash clothes the owner offered to have her SERVICE do our clothes for the week but I was not comfortable with that. Hopefully that is fixed by now, but it is only a small stackable washer and dryer (and the washer had terrible mold around the door and a terrible odor, possibly where water had not drained out all the way). For the amount that we paid to stay for the week, we were disappointed with the small aggravations that we had to deal with.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

Liked best: The Salt Water Pool
Liked least: The fenced in yard is actually fenced in around the rental cottage and the ownersn private cottage, we were only told that it was completely fenced in, not that the fence covered both backyards.

We believe that our guests should reflect their experiences for all to see, but we'd like to clarify a few things about this review. Yes, the washer is missing a knob, and we have ordered a replacement. We were unaware that water had failed to drain from the washer, and when the guests informed us about it on the first day we immediately cleaned and disinfected the machine. No guests since has complained. The yard is fully fenced and guests have access to both the area around the pool and guest house as well as the area around our personal home. We are very rarely there when we have guests, so we invite everyone to view the garden as theirs. Others have noted the large toaster oven but haven't complained. And yes, we offered to provide a laundry service at our expense since the washer was temporarily unavailable. However, when they declined that offer, we picked up their laundry twice personally during their stay and washed and folded everything and returned it. The house, which is intended to accommodate four adults and two children, has driveway parking for two cars and street parking for another. Unless the children drive, this seems ample to us. We're sorry they didn't appreciate the value of our guest home, but we believe the price is appropriate and we have never heard anyone else suggest it is anything but a bargain (see other reviews). We worked very hard to address these guests' needs, but it is occasionally impossible to satisfy some folks.

“One of the most relaxing vacations we have had since we've had kids”

I hesitated to write this review, purely for selfish reasons. I didn't want to encourage people to rent it because it could possibly create competition for the weeks I would want to rent. But this is unfair to the owners, who were gracious and accommodating, and this place really is a gem.

My husband and I have been seriously considering buying a beach house on Tybee Island. We have two little boys, ages 3 and 8. We decided that before we settle for sure on a location, we should check out some of the surrounding areas. Really glad we made the decision to rent on SSI. There is a lot to do and see, and there are a lot of little conveniences (such as a close by Anytime Fitness, grocery store, etc.) that made the trip that much easier.

I will say that the cottage is small, but the owners did an excellent job of renovating it and keeping it light, airy and open, so it feels much bigger, and they did the renovations in good taste. It's a beautiful cottage. I think the pictures of the pool speak for themselves, but I adored the pool and I had a difficult time getting the kids out of it. The shallow end is a good size and the hot tub also did an excellent job of doubling as a kiddie pool. There is also a nice elevated area that makes it very easy to watch the kids with one eye while you read a book with the other . . . something I haven't really been able to do with the kids before now.

If you like to cook, a couple of items to note: The grill is a very nice gas grill. There is no oven per se (there is an electric cooktop), more of a toaster oven, which works great (we were able to do fish in parchment in the toaster oven) but it will not accommodate a large pan.

Usually at the end of a vacation, the kids are ready to get back home, but this time they didn't want to leave . . . and neither did we.

“Outstanding property”

We are a family of 5 and a Golden. This rental was perfect for spring break with an amazing heated pool and spa with an awesome outdoor shower. The house has been recently updated with new kitchen, baths, and living area. There's a great grill, quaint kitchen, and lots of room outdoors to hang out and relax.

The neighborhood is very quite and very convenient to restaurants/shops/groceries and so on. The beach is about a 5 minute drive by car or you can bike to the peer area with lots of stores/bars/restaurants which takes about 15 minutes.

This is a great place to go for the week, I really can't find any faults from our week at SSI.
