Oceanfront Cottage Rentals, LLC is proud to present this one of a kind historic original cottage!  McNeal’s Historic Cottage overlooks the Atlantic Ocean on Tybee Island’s mid  island.  Constructed of cypress the walls and floors are natural wood where the ceilings are painted. This unique, free standing home has beach access next door, just a brief 3 minute walk for easy. Enjoy this wonderful 5 bedroom, multiple bath home with fabulous views and a huge L shaped wrap around porch. Walk under the beautiful oak trees and palms whispering in the breeze that welcome you to this 2.3 acre yard overlooking the dune and Atlantic Ocean. Bird watching is great here and you can also watch the ships as they enter Tybee Road, the international name for the shipping channel that is used from ships around the world. This beautiful home overlooks a dune, so your views are amazing. The dune structure is preserved, so you may not walk to the beach through the vegetation.



McNeal’s Historic Cottage was built in 1925 and has been owned by the same family for generations.  This cottage was built on the foundation of a former home that was blown away in the hurricane of 1983.  McNeal’s Historic Cottage is made of cypress that was harvested by the Argent Lumber Company in Hardeeville, South Carolina.  This family home is a vintage Tybee vacation rental cottage.  When you drive up through the oak and palm tree drive way you may park in front of the home.  Parking is abundant!



There are 2 stairwells to access the screened porch which is the main living level of the home.  The staircase closest to Butler is most frequently used when you enter the home.  You may want to sit on the porch and enjoy the breeze on the new patio furniture, relax in the rockers or laze about in the hammock.



When you enter the porch closest to Butler the kitchen door is immediately to the left.  For generations, this has been the most frequently used entry to the home.  There are 2 other entry doors from the porch.



McNeal’s Historic Cottage features original cypress cabinets painted “oyster white.”  The original oversized cast iron sink speaks of decades of family meals.  There is a pantry with cypress shelves for storage in the kitchen.  The kitchen cabinets feature vintage hardware that generations have used for their family vacation.  The family asks that you respect the vintage hardware throughout the home.



The kitchen is small but very functional with huge windows allowing tons of light.  A second stainless steel sink was added by the family with dishwasher to make clean up after a family meals a breeze. The kitchen features a stainless steel acrylic cooktop with stove, counter top microwave, stainless steel standard size refrigerator with built in ice maker, coffee maker, toaster and all standard small appliances you would expect in a vacation rental home. This cottage is fully appointed for meal preparation.



The living room and combination dining room are accessed by a small hallway from the kitchen.  Step out onto the large porch from the living room and enjoy a sunrise. 



The historic floor to ceiling windows throughout the home are simply stunning.



The family has just purchased new living room sofas including a standard size sofa, love seat and occasional chair.  The dining table seats 6.  There is a large flat screen television in the living area.



The queen bedroom is off the small hallway between the kitchen and living room with vintage furnishings and a small flat screen television.



The full bath with combination tub/shower is also off the hallway.



 When you walk past the dining area with fireplace the comfortable king master bedroom has views of the Atlantic Ocean.  Retreat into the bedroom and watch a movie on the flat screen television.  Enjoy nice ocean views through the floor to ceiling historic windows.  The king master bedroom in McNeal’s Historic Cottage has a private half bath.



 The queen bedroom with twin bed adjoins the living room with flat screen television.  It is just steps to the porch.
