Tybee's Dutton-Waller Cottage is a registered historic home that is steps from the beach. This unique vacation rental features 4 bedrooms, plenty of space and the charm of a vintage beach cottage.
This vintage home sits on a semi-private lot on Chatham Avenue. The home is surrounded by large oak trees, jasmine, and palm trees. Tybee's back river may be seen from the wraparound porch. The inviting white picket fences completely surround the cottage. The raised Dutton Waller Cottage was originally built during Tybee's "golden era" in 1910-1939. In 2008 the home was officially registered as a national historic place.
Hardwood floors and vintage charm mix with modern conveniences. This coastal home has three living room spaces. The entry formal living room is a cozy retreat that is perfect for watching movies or reading a book. There is another living room with plenty of seating, large HD television, dining table for games or meals, and access to the wraparound porch. The formal dining room is directly next to the fully appointed vintage kitchen. The kitchen was featured in Southern Living as "the kitchen of the month" in April 2009. The main floor of the home also has a large bathroom and two bedrooms (Bedroom #1 and #2). Each of these cozy coastal bedrooms has queen beds (2 bedrooms with queen beds). These comfortable beds are furnished with high-end linens and pillows.
The original staircase will take you to the top floor level of the cottage. The top floor has another cozy living space and a full-size bathroom in the hallway. Bookshelves are filled with books for you to enjoy and there is even a vintage VCR with VCR movies for you to watch. There are two spacious bedrooms on the top floor. Bedroom #3 has a queen-size bed. Bedroom #4 has a queen-size bed with two additional twin beds in adorable built-in hideaways (best suited for children).
The raised cottage has a spacious covered outdoor area that is perfect for entertaining, games and grilling out. This area is located under the home. There is a large outdoor shower and yard that is perfect for yard games.
Tybee's famous pier and pavilion and the popular back river fishing pier are a quick 5-minute walk away.
The Dutton–Waller Raised Tybee Cottage was built as a speculative investment by Edward A. Dutton in 1938. It was purchased in 1940 by Blanche S. Waller.
