BREATHTAKING VIEWS AT NATURE'S PARADISE, THE LANDINGS SKIDAWAY ISLAND

Skidaway Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 & 1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Offered for rent is a newly renovated 4 bedroom / 3.5 bath, 2732 square foot home nestled right up to the edge of Romerly Marsh at The Landings on Skidaway Island. Located only 12 miles from beautiful, historic Savannah. It is a perfect place to relax, reconnect with your partner, or reunite with family and friends. Immerse yourself in nature at this private home, which offers 180-degree marsh front views from nearly every room. This home offers Wi-Fi, HD cable with premium movie channels, fully equipped kitchen, bicycles, kayaks, breathtaking sunrises over the marsh, and full use of a golf cart! In water boat storage is available at Delegal Marina. The house is available for rent daily or weekly. Dogs considered, and must be pre-approved before visit.

Property:

Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, less than five minutes from the Main Gate. The Landings' 40-mile trail system can be accessed from the street. Delegal Marina is the favorite spot for viewing sunsets and is a 5 minute bike ride from the house. Large live oaks draped with Spanish moss shade the property. The Savannah area has unusually large tides, generally 8-10 feet. High tides bring water within yards of the deck. The water disappears at low tide and brings wildlife to the tidal flats. Egrets, blue heron, hummingbirds, raccoons, fox, and deer are regularly seen from the back of the house. The large back deck offers 180 degree views of the marsh and is very private.

Golf Cart:

Full use of our 4-passenger electric golf cart is included with all rentals. The golf cart is a fun way to explore the island's 40 miles of cart trails, or just take an evening ride to Delegal Marina to see the sunset. The cart has headlights for nighttime use and an enclosure for cold/rain. All drivers of the golf cart must be 16 years of age with a valid drivers license.

Kayaks:

There are four kayaks, paddles, and floatation vests available to explore Romerly Marsh. The marsh can be accessed from the back yard at around high tide. The marsh is a maze of salt water rivers that swell during high tide and is home to a variety of fish, sea birds, and dolphin.

Bikes:

There are 6 bikes (including one child's bike) available to explore beautiful Skidaway Island on more than 40 miles of bike/golf cart trails.

Fishing Poles:

There are 2 fishing poles available for guests. In addition to saltwater fishing from the marinas, the Landings has numerous lakes. The lakes range from saltwater, to brackish, to fresh water and many of them are stocked. And there is also a lake stocked especially for children.

Boat storage:

In water boat storage is available at Delagal Creek Marina in the Landings. Delegal Creek Marina is less than a 2 mile drive from our home. The cost is approximately $20-$25/night. Fishing and beaches are a short boat ride from the marina. For questions or to make a boat slip reservation, call Delegal Marina at 912-224-3885.

The home has an open floor plan with large rooms, 9' ceilings, and plentiful natural light. The great room, sunroom and main floor master bedroom have panoramic marsh front views. The upper floor consists of two spacious bedrooms separated by a shared full bathroom. A fourth bedroom is down the hall from the master bedroom. A two and a half car attached garage with a separate golf cart door provides ample storage space. All bedrooms have memory foam mattresses. There are 4 new flat screen televisions. A large dining room overlooks the sunroom and marsh. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed to entertain including a wine chiller.

My second stay at the house. First time with family including grandparents and grandkids. This time for girls weekend. Perfect home for both. They go out of their way to make sure you have what you need. Great location and perfect view. Hope to visit again.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME.

  • 5 of 5
Our visit in this home was so comfortable we didn't want to leave! We were in Savannah for our son's graduation and had several family members come by for meals and visiting. We played cards, sat on the deck, rode the golf cart and rode bikes. The kitchen was very well appointed which was a blessing since we ate all our meals at home. Easy access to downtown and to Tybee Island. I highly recommend this home and will be back again hopefully within a year. thank you so much Steve and Jane!

TRANQUILITY, LUXURY AND NATURAL BEAUTY

  • 5 of 5
Pros: Everything (view, house, amenities, location)
Cons: not wanting to stay in hotel again; high expectations for other rentals

This was my first rental house vacation and fortunately this house was so amazing, I don't think I ever want to stay in a hotel again. We had a three night trip to Savannah and this house accommodated us wonderfully. From the bedrooms to the living space this house is exceptionally well kept and decorated. The view from the deck is beautiful and peaceful. I enjoyed sitting quietly on the deck observing birds and the tides rolling in. We intend on renting this house again in the future.

GREAT HOME - GREAT OWNERS

  • 5 of 5
The house is very comfortable and inviting. Very relaxing location and furnished with everything you would need. Spent much time in the kitchen and had all the utensils that I needed. This was our second stay at this home and we have signed up for a third. The best part of this property is the owners. Very easy to work with and very accommodating.

LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
Perfect home away from home with everything we needed to make our stay wonderful. They even allowed our dog to vacation with us! And with Historic Savannah so close, we had lots to do besides playing golf and enjoying new friends.

WORHTY OF MORE THAN 5 STARS.

  • 5 of 5
If you are not happy in the house, you will likely not be happy in heaven! It is the ideal location to just relax, enjoy nature and explore. The owners have thought of everything and are super quick to respond to any questions or concerns.
We saw deer and fox every morning . We were fortunate enough to be there during a full moon, The moon's reflection on the water was breathtaking.
Only my husband and I occcupied the house but it is definitely large enough for 3 couples to occupy with more than enough room. The home is located in a quiet area but it very easily accessible to downtown Savannah. I have never had a more relaxing vacation and it is definitely because we stayed in this home. We have rented many times w/VRBO and have been happy. This was, by far, our best experience.

Tnank you Steve and Jane for sharing you wonderful home.
