About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16-20)

Serenity is one of the newest and most spectacular additions to the Tybee Island community. A short walk to the beach or the Tybee Lighthouse, this 6100 square foot home includes six bedrooms all with adjoining full baths, and an additional 2200 square feet of porches and a one-of-a-kind roof deck with a fully equipped outdoor kitchen, hot tub, and sun deck. The house has an elevator serving all living levels as well as an accessible equipped bathroom. Learn about the historical aspects of Tybee Island, Fort Screven, and nearby Fort Pulaski during your stay-- the entire home is decorated with hundreds of photos, engravings and art cataloging the history of the area for the past 200 years.

We would like to encourage you to contact us with any questions, and visit our complete home website to learn more about Serenity. We are sure you will find our home to be one of the most exceptional homes you have ever seen, and we would be happy to accommodate you and your guests for a very special and memorable visit as you experience Serenity on Tybee Island.

The bedrooms consist of two identical masters- equipped with a king size bed with four assorted pillows. The two master bedrooms are all very large, with a bay window and views of the Tybee Lighthouse, a table with two chairs, two large dressers, alarm clock, phone, and CAT-5 access in addition to the Wireless network. You can also enjoy the large flat screen TV from either of the master beds. The upstairs Master includes a Sony Bluray disc player with free access to Netflix. There is a huge walk-in closet, and a Stairmaster stair climber available in the upstairs master for use as well. The master bathroom for each level is extra large and includes a Bain-Ultra deck jaccuzi tub with a spectacular view of the Tybee Lighthouse. You'll be able to relax in this tub with the built-in fireplace providing a warm backdrop in front of you. After your bath, you can grab a pre-heated towel from the towel warming drawer incorporated into the tub deck. If you would rather use the walk-in shower, you will find a unique overhead rain shower in addition to the standard showerhead, and a tile bench seat with hand sprayer. Finishing the bathroom are twin vanities and a linen cabinet including his and her linen hampers.

There are two further guest rooms equipped with queen beds, adjoining walk in closet and full baths. One of these rooms is equipped with a larger handicap accessible bathroom with separate tub and shower and also has a flat screen TV for viewing from the bed. The fifth room has two extra-long twin beds with full bath and walk in closet. The sixth bedroom is part of the recreation room- perfect for kids- it had four pull-down twin Murphy Beds and an extra large full bathroom.

The kitchen is unequaled, with all the amenities you'd expect in a commercial kitchen including a 60' Wolf gas range with griddle, grill, six burners and twin ovens, a built-in counter top fryer and separate steamer, microwave/convection oven, and plenty of storage space in two Sub-Zero Refrigerator and Freezers. There you'll find a large island with gourmet prep-sink, and an adjacent bar with beer & wine cooler, Keurig coffee machine machine and fresh squeezed lemonade press. You can literally have four cooks working in this kitchen with room to spare! To entertain your guests, you'll have use of the custom alderwood dining table that seats 12, and a wrap around couch in front of the 62" flat screen TV that seats just as many! (The couch cluster has two full-size pull out beds for extra guests) Also included is a sony Bluray player with free access to Netflix (also available in the rec room and upper master bedroom)

The recreation room on the ground floor includes a full size slate pool table with ping-pong table cover, a fooseball table, and a poker table with bumper pool. The kids can enjoy a movie or play the X-Box 360 on the 50" flat screen TV along with a Sony Bluray player for your favorite DVDs or access Netflix for free. For your trips to the beach we have two beach wagons, an assortment of chairs, coolers, and toys to last the whole day.

Just when you thought you were done...a whole new vacation experience awaits you on the huge roof deck. You can relax in the state-of-the-art 8 person Hotsprings spa tub,and soak in the panoramic views of the Tybee Light House, the Atlantic Ocean, Savannah River entrance or Hilton Head Island in the distance. There is a complete outdoor kitchen with refrigerator, ice maker, bar sink, 36" gas grill with internal smoker and rotisserie, and side burners. With the lights above the granite counter top you can enjoy this great amenity day or night. Adjacent seating for up to six persons on the dining counter. Finally, if you don't want to make the short walk to the beach for some sun, enjoy the lounge chairs on the sun deck area while you soak in the great Tybee weather!

About The Owner

I had been planning the construction of my home on Tybee since for about 8 years. Once I found my 'spot' the whole process took three years to completion. Once my home was built, people said how much they would like to stay there, and with the economy being down, I found myself open to the idea of renting my home. I really view rental of my home as having guests - for sure the money helps - but I enjoy being host and hearing all the positive comments on how much my guests have enjoyed my home, which affirms the years in planning in making my home a place to enjoy, and to remember.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Tybee Island

As a college student in Atlanta, I made frequest trips to Savannah, since it is the closest beach to Atlanta. Later, I had some business ties to Savannah and from that, began staying at Tybee for both business and for summer vacations. Over time, I fell in love with the atmosphere and decided that is where I wanted to build my retirement home.

What makes this house unique

My home is a 180 degree change from the hustle and bustle of Atlanta. That is why I picked the name 'Serenity'. Although I can function in my office there just as I do in Atlanta, there is something about walking out on my roof deck and taking in the view, or enjoying one of Tybee's many quirky events, that can't be had in Atlanta or other city places.

Amazing stay for a weekend with friends

  • 5 of 5

This is the absolutely perfect home for entertaining a large group of friends. Beautiful kitchen, lots of space for hanging out, and did I mention a hot tub on the roof?

Will be recommending this home to anyone looking to stay on Tybee!

Great Family Time

  • 4 of 5

This house is HUGE! We came down to Tybee to celebrate. A Birthday, An Anniversary and the BIG event, a graduation from PA school in Savannah. This house had everything we needed to have a perfect family getaway. Jonathan was great to work with and only had to call him one time. There is slight minor damage from the previous hurricane, so that is why I gave it 4 stars... but once that stuff is repaired it will definitely be a 5 star place to relax.

Wow. Wonderful Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented Serenity because we wanted our extended family to stay together for our daughter's Tybee wedding. I have to admit, I was a little concerned about 19 souls under one roof (ages 2 - 81). We couldn't have made a better choice! Serenity is a beautifully planned, well-built house with wonderful decks and stunning views; expect everything to be as detailed in the description. The first night, I walked onto the deck to find a magical moon and it seemed like I could have reached out and touched the Lighthouse. We did a lot of cooking while we were there and found we had everything we needed, unlike some vacation rentals. The elevator was a life-saver for my Mom. The beds were extremely comfortable, too. Jonathan is very responsive and pleasant to work with. Thank you, Jonathan for sharing your lovely place. Everyone loved it, and Serenity made the weekend all the more special for our family.

Winter Haven Reunion...NY..DE..VA..SC..GA..and FLORIDA!

  • 5 of 5

Huge!huge!huge!...MAGNIFICENT!!! We all wanted to get together and do something special with our family...very spontaneous. We're all spread out on the East Coast, but no one has a home large enough to accommodate all of us. This was the best weekend ever...we dropped er'thing and headed to TYBEE. The property owner has no idea the impact he had on the family by providing the most stunning,cozy,immaculate "our" home for the weekend...OMG with the most stunning views look out towards the ocean and you think you are on some exotic Island...I kept singing "Oh! beautiful for spacious skies"..So this home was way more than we anticipated, yes we were excited about the sq.footage bcuz we knew we needed a lot of space for the kids and adults. The kids loved the 1st.floor with the murphy beds and theater seating and pool table, games etc.etc.they were in a world of their own as the adults spent most time on the upper levels with the most admirable kitchen where 6 of us prepared er'thing from appetizers to desserts without bumping into each other. We rent often and have never, ever had access to every spice imaginable, the best ever cutlery,( I always pack my wustoffs and spices, but didnt need it)every type of cookware you need down to a waffle iron and panini press..REALLY?.Even though it was not beach weather the home and surroundings were beautiful. So much enjoyment in the home, we rarely ventured more than a few blocks away or to the lighthouse. Oh! did I mention how clean and orderly er'thing was..plenty of fresh linens and bedding and lots of paper goods and running to the nearest convenience or drug store. I cant say enough about this home except...WE'LL BE BACK!!!all 20 of us..Sooner than Later!!!

4th Year and Loving It!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th year our family has stayed at Serenity around Christmas. It is our Christmas gift to each other and we all look forward to it all year! The hot tub on the roof, location, and view are unbeatable!!! The house is perfect for our large family and everyone has their own space to get away to when needed. The owner is extremely responsive and helpful...thanks! We look forward to coming for many more years!

Every year a group of us go away for a women's say that we were impressed with this home is an understatement. The photos don't do it justice, and that's saying something! Every detail was wonderful, the owner was very informative about the area, everthing was very clean and of very high quality. We usually don't go back to the same house twice...but we have already booked our next trip to Serenity. Highly recommended.
