Our home is nestled in between Jaycee Park and the historic Officers Row homes that were built as part of Fort Screven. We have a walking right of way to the ocean through the yard of one of those big Victorians and through what was once the parade grounds for the fort for a total of 2 short blocks. There you'll find miles of beach to walk or bike on at low tide. Keep your eyes open for dolphin sightings.
Our beautiful, quiet neighborhood is full of ancient live oak trees, many draped with Spanish moss. We have a view of the antique Tybee Lighthouse from our porch and you can hear the surf. The park behind our home has a basketball court, walking/bike paths, a softball field and playground, etc.
There are many good restaurants on the island and our favorite casual family bar, Huc a Poos is easily bikable. North Beach Grill, 80 east Gastro Pub, Fish Camp and Sundae Cafe are within walking distance. There are two dog parks a few blocks north of our home--one for dogs under 20 pounds and one for everyone else to run in a fenced in environment. Tybee does not currently allow dogs on the beach. If you disagree with this policy as we do, please go on www.cityoftybee.org and let our city council know how you feel.
Check-in is 4 p.m. Checkout is 11 a.m. unless other arrangements have been made.

We came to Tybee in January, 2005 for a getaway vacation. We rented a place for 6 weeks and didn't want to leave. We thought we would begin exploring the GA coastline each winter before deciding where we would want to purchase a retirement place. Once on Tybee we knew we didn't need to see any other places and bought a building lot before we left. We built a very spatially and energy efficient home in 2008 we know you will love. We would live in this house year-round if it were not for grandchildren we want to spend time with in VA and PA. Cliff is a retired college math professor and Annie ran Mystic Cooking School in CT for fifteen years. This photo was taken on River Street, Savannah our first winter here with our American Bulldog, Dottie.

We were thrilled to find such a casual small town with such a relaxed pace. It is a pleasure to ride our bikes to the library, our little IGA grocery store, on the beach at low tide, and to friendly bars and restaurants. The residents are friendly and made us feel right at home. A quick trip in the car and we're in a good-sized city with all the shopping, restaurants, and more cultural offerings than you have time for--lot of college students to keep things hopping.
We have a great collection of cookbooks to browse or actually use, some DVDs (especially chick flicks and baseball movies) and CDs (playable in the DVD player). There are a few toddler toys, sippie cups and baby dishes, Chico high chair, an umbrella stroller, running stroller, booster seat.
My family stayed for a full week over the 4th of July. The location of the home was amazing. Being on the North side of the island, the house is far removed from the "tourist" section down by the pier. Very quiet and seemed much slower paced, which was fine by us. The house is less than 5 minute walk and we had sand under our feet. The lighthouse was just over a quarter mile away. Plenty of restaurants within a short drive. We couldn't have asked for a better location! The house was great too! The screened in porch was fantastic, especially at night. The kitchen was fully stocked with about anything you could ever need and there was plenty of space to prepping, cooking, and serving. There was plenty of room for everyone and the amenities were nice. The house (and owners) were very pet friendly. The half star deduction only comes from very few things, and it getting pretty nit-picky. The outdoor pet area (and the yard too) hadn't been cut in some time. The grass in the kennel was worse than the yard. The bicycles both had flat tires. Lastly, the door that leads to the living room from the downstairs bedroom needs some attention. Like I said, really nit picking. We would stay again without hesitation! You will love the property and location if you choose to do so!
A wonderful family vacation! My 85yr old mother walked to the surf each morning. We enjoyed a walk-around the park each evening. The large dining table sat all 10 of us comfortably and we spent much time within the screened-in porch with cooling fan. A most relaxing time we had!
We cannot say enough about our family vacation to Tybee. This home is beautiful with a perfect location! Annice was so kind to accommodate every request and need! Your home is beautiful thank you for sharing it with us! We hope to make this an annual trip and can only hope your home is available again! Believe us when saying you cannot go wrong when renting this home. The perfect location for a family vacation full of memories! Thank you! The Cottrell Family
We really enjoyed our stay in this house. It was very convient to every place that we wanted to go and eat. Close walk to get to the beach. We only stayed 2 nights but felt like we were in our own home. I would love to stay here again. We brought our Labrador and he had a great time. He even learned how to use a doggie door. We took him to Fort Pulaski as well, very pet friendly. Great place to relax and unwind.
We had a wonderful time at this home. A quick walk to the beach on a nice quiet end of the island. Exceeded our expectations for cooking! Made dinners in a treat. The bikes were rally handy and the kid trailer was perfect. Had a little trouble with the wifi, but definitely no deal breaker. We had a great time and are hopeful to go again next year.
Our vacation was wonderful, mostly due to this home. It is very lovely and cozy, with all the amenities you would need. The location was close to the beach and to shopping and food. We loved the quiet neighborhood. It was next to a park, so we had plenty of places to walk our dog. The kitchen was to die for and the heart pine floors were beautiful.We had bikes to read and comfortable spaces to stretch out and read. We truly enjoyed this home.
The island has some good bird watching/nature trails and eco tours. Good library tied into the county library system. Excellent hospitals 20 miles away.
