Description Description
Splash into Coquina Cottage! Originally built in 1935, Coquina Cottage is a Tybee beach cottage that has been lovingly restored and decorated throughout with an eclectic mix of fun, new furnishings, and revitalized vintage finds. The adorable house pays homage to the past while providing a distinct, charming beach vibe throughout. It's truly a Tybee cottage enthusiast's dream come true. Guests will have a splashing good time in the brand new in-ground pool and patio with an attached jetted spa, ready to refresh and delight guests all year long.

The house is owned by New York Times bestselling author Mary Kay Andrews, who provides each guest with an autographed novel! Mary Kay Andrews collects thrift store finds and estate sale antiques that she lovingly restores to add to her homes' eclectic beachy feel.

The two-story cottage has five bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and sleeping space for up to 12 people. The living room is on the first floor, and it has large windows that let in plenty of natural light. The living room has a sleeper sofa as well as a large flat-screen TV. The adjoining dining room seats up to ten people and connects to the stunning all-new kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped, with stainless steel appliances, a farm sink, and a vintage-style dining booth where you can enjoy a quick meal. There is also a gas grill in the backyard, which is ideal for cookouts! The two downstairs bedrooms have a king-size bed and two twin beds, and they share a bathroom with a walk-in shower.

The second floor is home to the remaining three bedrooms and a comfortable sitting area with a large flat-screen TV and a delightful screened porch for sipping iced tea on a warm summer's night. Bedroom 3 has a Queen size bed, Bedroom 4 has a King size bed with a TV, and Bedroom 5 has 2 Twin beds. There are two full bathrooms on the second, the first with an all-new walk-in shower; the second has a vintage clawfoot tub with a shower.

The cottage is in a beautiful mid-island location. Enjoy the 8'6" X 17' in-ground heated pool and patio with an 8'2" X 8'7" spill-over spa (spa only, no jets). Guests can choose to add optional pool/spa heat for an additional cost of $25 per day (not available in January or February).

The home is located on Second Avenue, which is considered part of Tybee's bike trail. This property has parking is available for up to 5 cars.

Fabulous Home
This home has been beautifully remodeled! Very spacious and comfortable. Two living rooms so the kids could have their space and adults have a different area. Wonderful screen porch! The kitchen was well stocked. We ate every meal in the house except for sandwiches on the beach. The grill is large, too! Highly recommend!

Newly renovated large family home with a vintage flaire
This home really exceeded our expectations. It is very large and has a wonderful layout. The bedroom downstairs was very quiet, even with four people upstairs. Two large living rooms and a wonderful kitchen that is stocked with everything you need to cook all of your meals. We love a well done renovation and this home is tastefully furnished with many retro pieces of furniture and decor. We liked the privacy between the upstairs and downstairs living areas. Perfect for entertaining two families or grown up children. The upstairs porch was great for reading in the morning and gathering at night time to play games. You will be happy you chose Coquina Cottage for your vacation!

Amazing Retreat
Our family of 12 THOROUGHLY enjoyed our time in this updated & charming cottage. Kitchen was well equipped, filled with enough of everything for big family dinners. Kids enjoyed the pool, and we all loved the open air feel the screened in porch brought to the home. Our 1st visit to Tybee Island ~ we look forward to returning.
