Feel At Home In Canty’s Cottage circa 1957

Feel at home in Canty’s Cottage circa 1957 and enjoy your Tybee Time!  Let’s face it.  Many times vacation rentals can be cookie cutter, as well as kitschy, and not in a good way.  You always know your beach getaway is going to be something special when you instantly feel the soul of a vintage cottage as you walk in the door.  Your feeling of comfort and home continues to grow during your visit as your cottage reveals itself a little at a time.  The beauty is in the details, the thoughtfulness of the owner and of those who help care for it.  Such is the case with Canty’s.
