On Tybee Island, “The Bakery” stands alone. It is not only a Tybee historical site, but is also the first house in Georgia to be fitted with solar panels, quietly tucked away and hidden on the roof. In a pleasant neighborhood on the north end of the island, it is just a short walk or drive to the north beach on Tybee. Your family can easily access the beach and the nightlife, but won’t feel smothered by other beach goers or the inevitable evening revelry of Tybee’s ultra-fun main strip. “The Bakery” is a drastically remodeled decommissioned Army bakery built circa 1925. Renovation by the current owner began in 2001 and no modern amenity was
overlooked while maintaining all of its quirk and charm.
“The Bakery” is the perfect rental for a family looking to vacation on fun and beautiful Tybee Island. Its yard is equipped with a swing and a Rolls Royce of a grill for Dad. Enjoying the perfect Tybee Island weather doesn’t stop there. As you enter through the side door, you’ll find a gorgeous sunroom with lights and a fan for the nighttime and a unique swing bed for lounging.
The house itself is custom-suited for a big family. The kitchen table seats 8 and is made of the old doors to the bakery finished with glass and photos of the renovation process. The kitchen itself is equipped with a dishwasher, full gas range, a huge oven, coffee-maker, breakfast bar, kitchen island, granite countertops……the works.
The vaulted ceilings and the working fireplace give “The Bakery” a sense of grandeur. The TV area of the main room seats 6 facing the flat screen TV and several more in an area more for chatting. The two kids’ rooms have two twin beds each, totaling four twins, and ample room to play. The rooms also have a very large stand-up shower and bathroom adjoining all to themselves. The master bedroom has a queen bed, wardrobe, and a luxurious master bathroom.

The Bakery is absolutely beautiful with their restoration. As far as staying in this house there were numerous issues. First be aware that the ceilings are open - this means the bathrooms too. Also there is only one shower. The tub only is useful for bathing the little kids, and even then we splashed water all over the floor and wall. The beds in the "boy" room had broken frames and were separated so I had to move one of the kids to the trundle bed in the "girl" room. Several faucet handles were not tightened down and moved as you turned them on/off. The dishwasher soap drawer was broken as was the washing machine - no cold water - which means no warm water either (which was a key feature when I rent houses). I had to pour cold water into the machine from the sink to wash clothes. Also during our stay we had several thunderstorms and discovered a roof leak in the laundry room and water coming in the door flooding the laundry room floor. When I emailed and called the rental company they just said they would get back to us/look into it, but I never heard from them. Called 3 times. Will also be asking for some refund when I return home! Not acceptable with the amount they are charging to stay here. Yes, it is beautiful, but as far as comfy and relaxing - it is not. Did I mention the rat bait stations that were under the bathtub and master bed!! They are in a great location and do have the historical value, but the lack of customer service response with the rental company, numerous issues, and the amount they are charging as compared to the neighboring rentals makes me give it a low score. Just being honest.
The Bakery was so amazing from the minute you walk in you are wowed by the open yet comfortable feeling. The pictures honestly do not do this home justice. I am so thankful the owners took loving care to restore this historical home and that they are gracious enough to rent this out so that others can share in this priceless historical treasure. If you have young children (our grandchildren were with us), they will be even more wowed than the adults with their special room (I thought I was going to have to call the owner to see if we could purchase one of the pillows - our granddaughter hardly put it down the entire weekend but we were able to cause a diversion and thankfully the butterfly pillow stayed for the next little girl to enjoy). This was so worth the drive into Savannah (which is a very easy and pleasant drive)!
We recently stayed in the rental property called the Bakery in Tybee Island. The home is absolutely beautiful! The large open combination kitchen and living area was perfect for our large group to enjoy each other with plenty of seating during eating and while visiting. The home is as lovely as the pictures. We gathered to celebrate our father's 80th birthday and I cannot imagine a more lovely place to have shared this milestone. The kitchen was well equipped and the furnishing and beds comfortable. The entire rental process was well handled by Savannah Vacation Rentals. Entry into the home went smoothly using their directions and they had the television on and the temperature of the home just right when we arrived. I highly recommend this property for your large or small group and Savannah Vacation Rentals will do everything to assist you with having a wonderful time.
Can't say enough good about this rental. As a seasoned traveler and renter I research my selections. This house exceeded all my expectations. Great house, great local, great short trip into Savannah....and just blocks to the ocean. BOOK THIS> you will not be sorry!
