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.'

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!

What makes this house unique
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!!
