Tybee Island House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)
Our home is nestled in between Jaycee Park and the historical Officers Row homes that were built as part of Fort Screven. We have a walking right of way to the ocean through the yard of one of those big Victorians and through what was once the parade grounds for the fort for a total of 2 blocks. There you'll find miles of beach to walk or bike on at low tide and keep your eyes open for dolphin sightings.
Our beautiful, quiet neighborhood is full of 200 year old live oak trees, many draped with Spanish moss. We have a view of the antique Tybee Lighthouse from our porch and thin ocean views from one of the second floor bedrooms and full bath. The park behind our home has a basketball court, walking/bike paths, a softball field and playground, etc.
There are many good restaurants on the island and our favorite casual family bar, Huc a Poos is easily bikable. North Beach Grill and Sundae Cafe are within walking distance. There are two dog parks a few blocks north of our home--one for dogs under 20 pounds and one for everyone else to run in a fenced in environment.
Check-in is 4 p.m. Checkout is 11 a.m. unless other arrangements have been made.

We came to Tybee in January, 2005 for a getaway vacation. We rented a place for 6 weeks and didn't want to leave. We thought we would begin exploring various locations each winter before deciding where we would want to purchase a retirement place. Once on Tybee we knew we didn't need to see any other places and bought a building lot before we left. We built a very spatially and energy efficient home in 2008 we know you will love. We would live in this house year-round if it were not for grandchildren we want to spend time with in VA and CT. Cliff is a retired college math professor and Annie owns Mystic Cooking School in CT. This photo was taken on River Street, Savannah our first winter here with our American Bulldog, Dottie.
We were thrilled to find such a casual small town with such a relaxed pace. It is a pleasure to ride our bikes to the library, our little IGA grocery store, on the beach at low tide, and to friendly bars and restaurants. The residents are friendly and made us feel right at home. A quick trip in the car and we're in a good-sized city with all the shopping, restaurants, and more cultural offerings than you have time for--lot of college students to keep things hopping.
We have a great collection of cookbooks to browse or actually use, some DVDs (especially chick flicks and baseball movies) and CDs (playable in the DVD player). There are a few toddler toys, sippie cups and baby dishes, an umbrella stroller, running stroller, booster seat, and kiddie tables with two chairs.
