Retreat House – Fort Screven – Delightfully Private
Start your day with a sunrise Beach walk and spend the afternoon in Historic Savannah. The “Villa of St Francis” is once again open for quietude, intrigue and charm. This all wood home was originally 2 military properties/ buildings that became a “Retreat House” in old Fort Screven. The current owners have artfully restored and married the two buildings to create a unique 3BR/ 2 BA- “step into the past experience”.
Our “North Beach” and “Ft. Screven” location takes you away from the “Summer-Crowds” with all of the noise and traffic. Park the cars and walk to the closest beach - it’s a short 350 yards and the beach is handicap accessible - & you don’t have to cross Highway 80 to get there.
Ride bicycles to our local shops and markets. Walk to several nice restaurants, or have food delivered. Walking distance to the freshest seafood in the South – “Bowie Seafood”. This property offers a true epicurean experience with an AGA Legacy gas range. 5 burners-2 ovens! Kitchen fully stocked with a wide selection of appliances and cooks’ tools, from coffee grinders to zesters. As you indulge your culinary passions your guests can shoot pool on the “Brunswick pool table” or segue to one of the four large porches. Prepare your feast, and maybe you want to cook your steaks or shish kabobs outdoors on a real fire pit with an adjustable grill, or cook on the charcoal Weber.
Our hot summers are quickly tamed with our excellent air-conditioning and porches on all 4 compass points, - so you just move around to suit your taste for sun or shade. The private yard complements the Retreat effect, and is filled with birds and squirrels and offers plenty of shade with our large Live Oak trees. Come experience Tybee as it should be – Rich in History, Gentle Breezes and Good-Times!
You will be hypnotically relaxed by the quarter sawn flooring and honey-gold antique Heart Pine interiors. “Pet friendly” with gated areas on 2 porches. Fix a great dinner, after a day at the beach and settle into an evening of old-fashioned fun with friends and family! All on ground level, 2200 sf. air-conditioned and nearly a 1000 sf. in porches,one screened porch. The private master suite has its own porch and a new bathroom with large soaking tub & shower. The other 2 bedrooms are in the same building as the kitchen and feature a King -size bed in the larger bedroom, and a Queen-size bed in the smaller bedroom which has a beautiful beach mural painted on one wall.
We offer cable, wireless internet and a large collection of board games. Come, shoot pool & play Ping-Pong. With the hide-away sofa and a few air mattresses we have certainly slept 10 -12. Beach gear, and low-country cooking gear available upon request. This is a “perfect retreat for couples”, families or any get-together. Enjoy the beach!

Born and raised in the area and fell in love with the old house. It is a simply beautiful, quiet and peaceful location.
Jim purchased this house in 1994
Why Jim chose Tybee Island
As lifelong residents of the region, we chose to preserve and renovate this unique historic property. Our location is so off the beaten path, that we really never knew the property existed until it came up for sale.
What makes this house unique
The house really lends itself to entertaining because you can have activities and groups in 4-5 different locations. The Beach is so close you can hear the waves crashing and there is always a good breeze.
