Description Description
Guiding Light Cottage is a nicely renovated 4 bedroom beach cottage and a popular choice for family vacations to Tybee Island. Relax outdoors with a backyard patio with a large heated pool. The fully fenced backyard includes a patio with seating area, outdoor bed, a fire pit, gas grill, charcoal grill, and an outside shower with both hot and cold water.

The ground level of the home has a sitting room, kitchen and dining area, half bath, and the primary suite. The second level has 3 bedrooms, a family room, and a full guest bath.

The kitchen features all stainless appliances and a dining table. Additional dining space is located on the screened porch directly off the kitchen. Accessed from the porch is a laundry room with a washer and dryer. The primary suite is furnished with a King size bed, 32in flat-screen TV with Bluray player, Bose CD player/radio, and a full bath with a large walk-in shower (no tub).


The family room on the second level has a 50in flat-screen TV and a full-size sleeper sofa. (The fireplace is decorative only).

For example, Casa Azul is a four-bedroom home that sleeps up to 13, and The Oar House is a 4 Bedroom neighboring home that sleeps up to 10.

This home was perfect and so was the rental company you'll have to work with. It is far enough from the pier that the crowd isn't overwhelming, but close enough to take a 10 minute walk on the beach to the pier. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a private stay that's close to the crowd but also far enough away.

My small group of family and friends really enjoyed this very comfortable house. We had plenty of room and spent most of pur days in the pool which was an added plus being that the temperature was a hot 97 - 103. It was memorial day wknd and the beaches were crowded so we grabbed some frozen drinks from 'Wet Willie's' and came on bck to relax, grill, eat and relax in the pool. I felt totally comfortable in this neighborhood. I enjoyed taking my scooter out on the bike trail. People on bikes and joggers waving and friendly made me feel happy. In close proximity to bars, grills, restaurants and a grocery store is near. The mosquitos had a good time on this Atlanta Ga Peach so bring some off. I would definitely come back again to this rental.

Beautiful home we had a great time. The beds are very comfortable. The kids really enjoyed the pool. We stayed in March its definitely worth the money to have it heated. I was surprised how warm the pool water was. We all had a blast would stay again!

Wow! We had such a great family vacation. Three generations of adults and our dog stayed at this house, and we all loved it. The house is beautiful, clean, very dog friendly, comfortable, convenient, and with plenty of amenities. The rental company was very easy to work with, and they made checking in and out a breeze. Great job Tybee Vacation Rentals, and thank you. We had an amazing vacation!

Everything about our experience was amazing. The house was beautiful, cozy, and clean. We had 4 children and 3 adults and fit very comfortably. The rental company was so easy to work with, sending emails and text messages to make the check in and check out process very smooth. They were also kind enough to leave sample sizes of toiletries and things to make the stay very comfortable until we could go to the store to stock up on necessary items. The only thing I would change is that we paid for pool heat and it was definitely too cold to enjoy! The pool heat worked fine, but we were lucky enough to come on the edge of the coldest weather Georgia has had in a very long time! Overall, I would highly recommend the house and Tybee Island Vacation rentals.

We loved spending time on Tybee Island to celebrate our anniversary. TVR staff was very easy to work with. The house is on a quiet street & very comfortable with plenty of amenities and close to the beach. We are sad to be leaving but look forward to returning.

We enjoyed our visit to Tybee Island and staying in the Guiding Light Cottage. The Cottage had many amenities we did not expect, including all the pots and pans, bowls, dishes, and some pool toys we could use. The Cottage was very roomy and comfortable for the 9 of us. We particularly liked the fenced in backyard for the kids and pet. We felt very secure in this location.

What a beautiful house. The renovations are wonderful. House has everything you need to feel comfortable and enjoyable. The backyard hardscaping and landscaping make it a retreat, the plants are fabulous and love the pavers! We will be back to tvr.
