I loved the sights of Tybee Island so much, I had to write a second blog post about it! (If you missed the first, be sure to check it out ... including how it came to be that I discovered this place, through the notable designer Jane Coslick! Jane has been saving and restoring coastal cottages on this island for decades ... talk about inspiration!).
Above: one of the many sweet coastal cottages on Tybee Island that I had to stop and take a photo of! This one is truly unique with its neo-classical columns.
I can never get enough coastal inspiration for my work. There is always something about the ocean; its blues, sunsets and bright, tropical colors that renews my spirit and fuels new designs. This was my first visit ever to Tybee Island, and it did not disappoint. Here are a few pics of my favorite sights and stops.
The best part? Tybee Cottages, who I rented my cottage through, is offering my blog readers and followers 20% off (!) any stay between Oct. 1 - March 1st, 2021. So if you need a reason to go, there you go! Enjoy - and hope these pics inspire you, too.
This photo says "classic coastal cottage" to me, with its white exterior, tin roof and old wood doors (and yes, it is beachfront, too!!).
Below: this cottage was just a couple doors down from us; love the touches of coral:
Below: this cottage is right on the bike route and is another original to the island, restored ... the picture doesn't do it justice!
Below: best treehouse on the island; so much to love about this one - including that tree!!
If you know my husband, you know he is a foodie ... so we also discovered a wonderful little place to eat, the Wyld restaurant and dock bar. (Bonus: its outdoor seating, on the water!). Their menu changes seasonally and is infused with locally sourced seafood and produce. Highly recommend!! (Note: it is actually located in Savannah, just a short drive from Tybee).

And because I love color, I had to get a shot of their colorful bar:
Here's one more cottage I just loved ... just three blocks from the beach, it looks so happy! Love its aqua marine blues and yellow door.
So those are some of my favorite little coastal cottages and sights. I hope you get to make it to Tybee one day! It's a little gem of a coastal town, and one that's original charm from past decades is still evident in many of the homes on the island. ##
