YaYa's Cottage is my newest renovation located in Thunderbolt, GA. YaYa's is just a few miles from Downtown. This quiet location allows you to explore downtown and get to Tybee Island easily. YaYa's is one-level and full of personality - there is a large living room, dining room, 2 bedrooms, and one pink bathroom! The outside areas area a huge plus and include tons of native plants, a fire pit, swing, and smoker! YaYa's is a stone's throw to 3 marinas & walking distance to 2 seafood joints.

The space

YaYa's is a renovated cottage is for those looking for the best of both worlds -- be halfway between Downtown and Tybee! I love being outside and have taken great care to create beautiful outdoor spaces, including a sunny front porch with swing, a deck off the kitchen, and big patio with smoker and fire pit! YaYa's is 3 doors to the Wilmington River, or the Intracoastal Waterway. Have fun as you cook in my cheery kitchen, walk to see the shrimp boats down the road, or have a cocktail on the front porch. YaYa's is one-level and features a large living room, dining room, and ample outdoor entertaining space. Ceiling fans in bedrooms.

We loved everything about Laurie's place. The cottage itself was so cute and very clean. The location was perfect for us because we we're visiting Savannah and Tybee Island and it was right in the middle of both. It's not even a full block off of the river so we got to take a nice little walk in the evening. Laurie was an awesome host, she responded to any questions I had very promptly. We felt right at home and would definitely stay again.

My girlfriends and I stayed in the cottage over the weekend (this was their first AirBnB). This home was lovely. When we stepped outside, we could smell the ocean air, the neighborhood was quiet and the neighbors friendly. The cottage was the perfect space. Hip and fun as well as spacious enough for 4 women. It was very clean and peaceful... and so much better than going back to a hotel after exploring every day. We will definitely be back!

One of my favorite AirBNBs I've stayed at. It was so darn cozy, quiet and central to everything we wanted to do. Tybee was about a 20 minute drive, downtown Savannah was a $10 Uber ride, and we did a charter fishing trip with Ms. Judy on Wilmington Island, which was only 10 minutes away. Several grocery stores as well as Target and CVS are close by. Check-in was super easy. We have family in Savannah and definitely plan to stay here next time we return.
