We had a great time. The house had plenty of space for our troop. The house was clean, not a 5 star, but it is a beach house it didn't need to be. Within walking distance of the beach, restaurants and shops.

Dear Sarah and Girl Scouts.
I am so happy to know you enjoyed your stay at ISLAND COTTAGE.
I'd love to have you back.
Tybee cousin discounts for you!
I am hearing that the SHIP REC room with the 6 twin beds is a favorite for groups of scouts and children.
Thank you for appreciating and taking good care of ISLAND COTTAGE

First, It says a lot that I am even writing this review, not because of Lauren and her house but because I recently found out Tripadvisor had removed a bad review of mine (and others) after a few months, allowing that company's ratings go up; in essence lying to all of us who share our experiences on their website. This is bad business. I use to love TA, because it was FOR the consumer, now I realize if you are a big company, (Holiday Inn, I'm talking to you) you can buy your way out of bad ratings. ANYWAY: Due to the fact Lauren was AWESOME; I am going against my rule and leaving a review here.

Lauren's cottage was great. It is exactly as described. This is not your luxury accommodations it is an old school beachy cottage with all the kitschiness of that theme. We loved it, our kids LOVED their own room, where all of them could hang out all night. All the parents loved not having to share rooms with there kids, which is normally how our family does family holiday.

I more would like to speak on Lauren though. She is how people should run vacation rentals. She gave us a great deal, and when I called with a few concerns, prior to our travel, she was more than accommodating and helpful. The kitchen was well stocked, although we bought things before finding out they were already in the kitchen ;), my uncle was able to get around in his wheelchair; although he did have to walk up the steps to get into the home. The WiFi worked well. There were some small issues, like a loose shaky chair, a loose screw etc. but we came in the same day as another family left so those small issues are not uncommon. The house was definitely clean when we arrived though.

I just wanted to thank Lauren for sharing her home with us. Her cottage will definitely be where we stay when we return to Tybee, next time in the warmer months!

Yes, we found that wobbly chair after you left. Thanks for telling me about that.
I would love to have you and your family and friends back.
You were wonderful guests.

I can't wait to get back to Tybee, and when I do, this is where I want to stay. It's the kind of place you want to bring your family and friends to for a really special experience. I would recommended this property to anyone and everyone. The cottage was clean and the decor is fun and puts you right into vacation mode. The house has everything you need, including the spacious kitchen, screened-in outdoor porch/play room, covered front porch, large bathrooms, outdoor shower, laundry room...everything you need, nothing you don't. Everything in the listing description is accurate, except that it's hard to describe just how perfect this spot is. Oh, and Lauren, Manager of My Beach House Rentals on Tybee Island, is just wonderful.

Hi Melissa,
Thank you so much for the wonderful comments about My Island Cottage.
The glass doorknobs are original to the house!
So glad your boys had fun with the ping pong and foosball, too.
I do want you all to come back and am looking forward to seeing your painting. I have not had a chance to go by but cleaning staff like it!!
Tybee cousin discounts for you!!

sincerely,
Lauren

“It was better than we imagined”
Reviewed 3 February 2013 for a stay in December 2012

My family had a wonderfully relaxing time at Seaside. It was more than we hoped for. Very relaxing, plenty of space, great location. The next time we get back to Tybee we want to stay there again. Perfect. Lauren was wonderful. She helped us through the process as it was our first time booking a rental.
