Tybee Island Gives You Sandy Toes

tybee island gives you sandy toesTybee Island gives you Sandy Toes and that’s a good thing!  There are plenty of life’s stresses that give you gray hairs, crows feet, acid reflux and way too many frowns, so we’re always looking out for the good things that will make your heart sing.  The owners at our Sandy Toes Cottage have made some very cute updates and photographer Wen McNally has framed them up very nicely for us to share.  Kick off those clodhoppers, dig your toes in some sand and start thinking about your next visit to this cute, pet friendly cottage!

Sandy Toes is an adorable, bright and cheerful single-story cottage that’s located mid-island and about four blocks from the beach.  It’s conveniently within walking distance to Tybee’s Memorial Park where you’ll enjoy tennis, volleyball and basketball courts, BBQ grills, picnic tables and a great playground.
