PRIVATE DOCK! GREAT FISHING! SHORT WALK TO BEACH! + SAVANNAH!

Tybee Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Get away from it all on beautiful Tybee Island, Voted the #1 Healthiest Beach in America! Enjoy the peaceful serenity and surrounding nature at the Tybee Island Dockside Inn on Horsepen Creek. And if you like, you can even dock your Kayak, No extra charge!

The Dockside Inn is located directly on Horsepen Creek, nestled alongside the marsh and lush green trees, with a private dock away from the hustle and bustle of the public beach. If the #2 King Fish Unit is not availbable for your stay, Perhaps our beautiful #4 Panoramic View Unit, with breathtaking views of sunsets over Horsepen Creek, might just be your heart's desire!

Don't take our word for it; read this testimonial from a recent guest: 'We loved the rental! The bikes that were available for our use came in very handy. The kids enjoyed crabbing down at the dock, catching frogs, and shelling on the beach. The firepit was handy for smores in the evening, yum! The beach was just a 5 min walk. The laundry facilities were handy with the beach towels. There was so much to do and see. The light house, Fort Pulaski, and Savannah were so fascinating. There is so much history and beauty to experience here. We truly had an enjoyable vacation, and hope to come back next summer and enjoy the laid back beach life.'

Galadriel; Las Vegas, NV, Jun 26, 2010

The #2 King Fish Unit, as well a the #4 Panormaic View Unit, each have three bedrooms, and sleep a maximum of 8 guests; each has its own private entrance, with ample parking, so there is absolutely no need to hassle with the car! And did we say, Great Fishing !!!

The downstairs, #2 King Fish Unit, is located on the ground floor, very near the marsh and small creek that flows from the main branch of the river and Horsepen Creek. If you're a self-professed 'city girl', perhaps you may be more at home in our beautiful upstairs 'Panoramic View Unit'! The downstairs King Fish Unit, nestled so near the marsh, brings with it - some very special neighbors! A tiny wayward 'fiddler crab' might just wander over to welcome you! You will probably see a racoon crossing the yard on his way to his marshy home, great blue herons, and white egrets abound! Don't be frightened if you see the occasional 'palmetto bug' that flies out of the moss laden live oaks, and lush green foliage; inevitable during the heat of those sultry summer southern days. The fish are teaming, and nature abounds at the nearby dock and dock house; it's the perfect 'back to nature' venue for the whole family! Don't worry, that fin you might see, is just a dolphin swimming his way up the creek!

Tybee Island is where local award winning artist and writer,

Debbie Brady Robinson, grew up. The stories that Debbie writes are often about growing up during what she refers to as, 'Tybee Times in the 20th Century', and are published in The 'Tybee Breeze' local entertainment magazine. Most of the fun-filled adventures that Debbie tells took place here on Horsepen Creek and what is now the Tybee Dockside Inn.

Tybee Island is a tiny little island paradise, only two-and-three-fourths miles long, and three-fourths of a mile wide, surrounded by beach and ocean on one side, and river or creeks and marsh on the other side. You can walk or ride your bike to everywhere!

Yes, we said, G r e a t F i s h i n g ! Jump off the dock, swim with the fish, or catch them on a a fishing line! Have fun boating, fishing, crabbing, swimming, kayaking, or just enjoy the cool summer breeze while relaxing inside the rustic dockhouse and watching the herons and egrets in their natural marsh-side habitat.

The fun just never ends!

The Dockside Inn is located directly on Horsepen Creek, only four short blocks, and a quick walk down the end of the street to the public beach and the Atlantic Ocean!

Owned and operated by Tybee native, Debbie Brady Robinson, the Tybee Dockside Inn is located directly on Horsepen Creek, is where Debbie grew up. (The photo of the lady with the string of fish is of Debbie's Mom Chris who is the real fisherman in the family! Debbie's brother Jim, was the champion flounder gigger, and Debbie herself, the 2006 Tybee Island Pirate's Queen, also held the Queen of the 'crab scooping' unofficail title for much of the 20th century while she was growing up on Tybee!

Debbie often writes about her experiences growing up on Tybee in her 'Tybee Breeze' column, 'You Heard it in the Breeze', where she recounts, what she refers to as growing up during 'Tybee Times in the 20th Century'! Debbie, ten time 'Best Local Artist' award recipient, also owns and operates the Award Winning, Debbie Brady Robinson Signature Gallery, Local Art and GIfts business on Tybee, along with he husband Mark Robinson - owner and operator of Hall of Frames Custom Framing , located on the north end of Tybee, 1207 Hwy 80 E. It is also the headquarters for the Tybee

Dockside Inn Vacation Rentals package and key pick up!

Drop by and say 'hello' to Debbie, Mark, and staff at any time!

Debbie & Mark Robinson purchased this house in 1989

Debbie was fortunate enough to inherit this property, along with her brother Jim, that she refers to as Utopia! Spending every waking moment, from early Spring to late fall, in Horsepen Creek, held adventures that even Tom Sawyer could appreciate!

Tybee, of course, has been voted as the #1 Healthiest Beach in Americal! In addition, in ranks near the top for the most beautiful beaches in America, too! But, not everyone understands or appreciates the beauty and nature of Tybee's creeks and rivers. Low tide, and High tide are different as night and day. At low tide, you can walk the sandy bottom creek, with scoop net in one hand and bucket in the other, whoosh down, and snatch up a big blue crab - steamed up, as sweet and succulent as anything you can imagine eating! Or, squiggle your toes down in the sand, and pull up some fresh clams, perfect for chowder or fritters! At High tide, fish directly off the dock, and catch red drum (our spot tail bass), flounder, trout and more!

Enjoy a great fish fry and the dock with all of your delectibles caught during the day, and lay back and enjoy the breath taking sunset over Horsepen Creek! And, if you're an early morning riser, make the five minute walk to the beach and enjoy the glorious sunrise over the majestic Atlantic Ocean! Ahhh, this is the life, ya'll!!

Great for family getaway

We had a great stay at Tybee Island. The fishing was good off the dock catching a variety of fish. Short walk to the beach without having to pay for parking. The Dockside Inn is definitely not the Hilton but worked great for our family with four kids. The owner / operator was very friendly and accommodating. We loved the privacy and the ability to do a little fishing or be at the beach in a 5 minute walk. Great location as well.

So much fun, to much to describe! So close to the beach myself my wife my 10 yr old and two 7 yr old's walked there almost everyday other than the days we road bikes there. The cottage was super clean and had more room than I thought it would. The weather was great the only thing off was the fishing. I highly recommend this rental to anyone looking to be with in a short walk of everything but far enough away to be silent and relaxing! The kids had such a great time playing with the crabs at the dock and loved the bunk beds. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Guests always love the close proximity to everything, especially the quick five minute walk to the beach! Perfect spot for crabbing, fishing, kayaking and so much more! The dock and dock house is fun for the whole family! Fishing is really great for the experienced angler, but equally as much fun no matter what the experience level or whatever is biting! Be sure to bring your tackle box. Late Summer and the Fall is the best time of year to catch the BIG ONE!

Awesome Family Memories!

This place is an awesome family getaway on Tybee. We have stayed with Debbie twice and she is an awesome hostess, checking on us several times during our week in paradise. We have stayed both upstairs and down and love them both. We are far from prissy city folks, but are a well traveled mid 40’s couple with teenagers. We travel with other families when we come to Tybee and we always host the dinner parties at “our” home on Tybee. The Dockside is not the Ritz Carlton, but is always clean and ready for us, and the quiet back street setting is awesome. I wake up each morning to surf fish when we are there and it literally takes less than a half a cup of coffee to walk to the beach for the sunrise. At night the sunset over the marsh is one of my favorites in the world. The rising and falling tide in your back yard is awesome and fishing in the creek is like Forrest Gump chocolate, you never know what you’re gonna get. To have the extra room to play and relax as a family is priceless, I wish for you and your family the number of great memories that we have made at Deb’s on TYBEE!

Owner's Response: It's always a delight to have guests, continuously thrilled with the experience, return year after year! You really do have to experience it, for yourself, to appreciate all there is to offer; like a box of chocolate - and as Scott (and Forrest Gump) says, you never know what you’re gonna get! So come on down to our little piece of paradise and experience it for yourself! We think you'll love it!

Thanks Debbie--Not only was our stay wonderful but we couldn't have asked for more accomodating hosts. You truly showed that your number one goal was making sure our stay was enjoyable. The fishing was a big plus. If we decide to take another vacation on Tybee please be assured it will be with you! We will also be happy to highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a place to stay on Tybee. Feel free to use us as a testimonial. Thanks again!

Greatfully,
Brooks, Donna and family
