Overview

Coastal Georgia House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This beautiful 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom beach house is your 'home away from home!' It is a 3300 sf Charleston-style home on the secluded North Beach area of Tybee Island. It is a custom built home with 2 large porches, where you can relax and enjoy panoramic views of Fort Pulaski, Lazzaretto Creek, Savannah River, and the Shipping Channel of the Atlantic Ocean! You can relax on one of the porches and enjoy the views as large ships pass by regularly! You will also want to relax at the end of the day by watching the gorgeous sunset over the ocean! This home is located in the exclusive Sanctuary Subdivision of Tybee Island, with brick paved driveways and walkways! Enjoy private beach access, which is approximately 100 yards from the front door! This beach house is only a short walk or bike ride away from restaurants, shopping, and other entertainment!

This is the perfect beach house for relaxing and entertaining family and friends in a private setting! You are away from the crowded public beaches; yet, you can enjoy many recreational water activities in this area or simply lay on the beach with a good book. Jet skiing, boating, fishing, water skiing, parasailing, kayaking, swimming, and sailing are just a few of the activities that are very popular in this area! You can also enjoy playing horse shoes, bocce, volleyball, badminton or other fun games on the beach!

This beautiful home features heart pine flooring and an open, spacious floor plan with all coastal decor. The master bedroom has a king sized bed, a large bathroom with a whirlpool tub, and its own private porch! The other 2 bedrooms on this same level, each have a queen sized bed and a full bathroom in each room! The 4th bedroom is located on the level with the living room, and has 2 queen sized beds and a full bath. The kitchen has all stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and can seat 10 in the two separate dining areas! The Laundry room has a full size washing machine and dryer. The 2-car garage has a gas grill, charcoal grill, and a large ice machine, which is a wonderful benefit while staying at the beach!

The home even has an elevator to help 'save the day,' when you have luggage or groceries to carry upstairs!

About Ron Boyd

I live in Statesboro, GA, along with our 2 teenage daughters. Luckily, we are only an hour away from our beach house! We absolutely love spending as much time as possible at Tybee Island! We have been enjoying the summers at Tybee for many years. The hectic schedules of our two teenage daughters do not allow us to visit as much as we would like! However, we can honestly say that we enjoy every minute of the laid-back and relaxing life that Tybee offers, every chance we get! We consider Tybee to be the 'best kept secret of the south!' We are confident that you will fall in love with this little island, just as much as we have! Ron Boyd, Statesboro, GA

Ron Boyd purchased this house in 2008

Why Ron Boyd chose Coastal Georgia

We actually bought this beach house as a second home! We have just decided to begin using it as a vacation rental, since we cannot spend as much time at Tybee as we would like too! We hope that you will enjoy its charm, in a tranquil setting, as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

We enjoy relaxing on the beach with good friends and family! We love boating, jet skiing, and other water activities during the day; but, we also love relaxing on the porch and enjoying the beautiful views of the ocean in the evening! This beach house is truly a 'home away from home!'

Not What Depicted

  • 2 of 5

I can only give this experience two stars. First the good:

1) Owner very responsive

2) Tybee Island was gorgeous. A great departure (for me) from nearby Hilton Head

3) The home itself was super lovely

4) We even met some of the neighbors, who were very enjoyable

5) Quite neighborhood

6) Nearby restaurants, shops, markets, etc.

I’m not a picky person at all and usually give great reviews, but now the bad:

The worst part is that although the beach (sound) was beautiful and close to the house at the end of the walkway as shown in the pictures, you really cannot swim in the area leading directly off the walkway. This area has a large oyster bed. One of our guests cut herself on the oyster bed and had to go to the urgent care for stiches. One of the permanent residents said there used to be a sign but it wasn’t there now. If you like actually BEING IN the water, you’d be better off driving to the real beach.

1) House furnishings not as depicted. Large (really large!) tears on outdoor cushions. Small tears on indoor couch cushions

2) Half of the mattresses uncomfortable

3) Kitchen not well stocked. Sleeps 10 and only 6 forks. Really low on some necessities like serving bowls. Coffee maker leaked and chipped. Stove top worn and needs to be replaced

4) Housekeeping was really bad. Drove up to full trash can overflowing with several bags around it. Floor was so sandy and dirty we wore flip flops in the house instead of going barefoot. Found solo cup willed with cigarette butts and water on top deck

5) Beach chairs – there were six – very rusty and worn out. Two of them completely gave out on the first trip to the beach (even though the persons using were very petite!) One a rusty screw fell out of. Bikes were also old and rusty. To be fair, owner said he could not guarantee condition of these items but they were in REALLY bad shape

I’m not sure how this property got such high rankings. Could these things have worn out so recently? Everything was on their “last leg”

Great for a group

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for us and our bridal party for our wedding weekend on Tybee. The house was perfect for the 3 couples and 2 individuals who stayed.

the only problem we had was the fact that we weren't able to slow down and enjoy ourselves more since we were all running around for the wedding.

We are already planning our next trip to Tybee and the house for a relaxing, fun vacation.

A fantastic week in Tybee!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a great week we had on Tybee island. We pulled up to the house and were blown away. What a beautiful property! This home accommodated our group of eight perfectly. We enjoyed sitting out on the three verandas each morning and loved the location of the home. We could easily access the coffee shop, the beach and a few other places. Our only complaint from the week is not having some of the essentials to complete our stay...we ran out of toilet paper, there was not laundry detergent to wash our towels, and a very small supply of paper towels. We also attempted to cook a few meals and found that we didn't have the necessary things like a strainer for pasta, etc. the pots and pans were also quite dirty. These things aside, we had an incredible time and hope to be back soon!! Thanks Ron!!

Tybee vacation

  • 4 of 5

This house worked perfectly for our group of eight. The large decks and ample sitting areas in the house worked well. The short walk to the beach and also shopping and a restaurant really worked for our group. Would recommend this property for a family or just friends wanting a fun island experience.

Wonderful Home!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is wonderful!!! As I look out the view from back deck (one of 3 decks), I am reminded of how happy we are that we found this rental home. It is beautiful, located in a great spot and more than we expected. The home is beautifully appointed, very specious, with a full bath in every room plus a 1/2 bath on the main level. The owner is extremely responsive and pleasant. We were hear for a wedding. I would highly recommend this property for any occasion.

Perfect for Family Celebration

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a perfect vacation celebrating a 50th birthday on Tybee Island in this beautiful beach house. Walking distance to a cute shopping district, a short taxi away from nightlife on Tybee, close enough to Savannah, and directly next to the beach. The house itself is huge and perfect for a large group of people. We particularly loved the patio with an ocean view! I would recommend this house to anyone!!
