Looking for the perfect place to get away in Tybee? Just steps from a secluded beach where the Atlantic ocean meets the Savannah river, this home has everything you need - hot tub, rec room with pool table and bar and grill. Half the second level is encompassed by a enormous master suite with a deck and separate sitting area that offers you spectacular views from every angle. Watch the ships coming and going or sit and enjoy both sunset and sunrise. The dolphins come to visit every day, just off the beach, with little to no waves. Perfect for kids and long walks.

No need to bring towels, sunscreen, or bug spray. There is a sundry basket with the essentials on the kitchen counter. Linens are provided, as is bath tissue, paper towels, coffee, filters, and beach gear. You'll also find a pack n' play and high chair tucked away. Much of the decor, from signs, figurines and weathered wood, are gifts left by guests or from friends who've enjoyed their stay. The place just feels like home.

Located in a quiet, residential neighborhood, fabulously appointed and professionally decorated, this beach house was designed with comfort and sophistication in mind. There are even two additional master suites on the second floor, each with private bath and separate seating areas. On the main level, you'll find one bedroom with two twin beds, and another with a daybed that expands into a king. Perfect for children or seniors.

Relax in the jetted tub in the master bath or the private hot tub built into main deck. Choose any of the 6 seating areas located throughout to escape to read or find a little quiet. The kitchen comes completely stocked with a coffee maker, built-in microwave and gas stove top.

Bright and airy, this private home offers guests more than just a place to stay; it's a place to play. A completely accessorized pool table is the centerpiece of the rec room. A short walk brings you to our private beach access, and an outdoor shower offers you privacy and convenience. Who could ask for more?

About Marisa Pope

I grew up in Chicago, and moved to Atlanta over 35 years ago. I have always loved the Georgia coast, with its unique wildlife. Tybee Island is one of my favorite places because of its unique restaurants and shopping, the kindness of everyone you meet, the events throughout the year and of course, their love of our turtles. I run a business in Atlanta, but try to get away as much as I can. I have a fantastic Italian family, including a niece and two nephews, and a tight circle of friends I've known for over 20 years. I never intended to rent this property, but after having spent so many weekends there, friends and family asked me to, so here we are.

Marisa Pope purchased this house in 2011

Why Marisa Pope chose Tybee Island

I love Tybee Island. It's whatever you want it to be. On the South side of the island you can play hard, and on the North side of the island you can recuperate. There is almost always something going on, from New Year's through Christmas every year. There are little shops I love to visit and fantastic restaurants in town like Sundae Café and the Crab Shack (musts on any visit). Add to that, the island itself is just minutes from Savannah with its shops and restaurants and of course, River Street. This home was hit hard by Matthew in 2016, as many were, but we turned that disaster into a blessing. We completely refurbished the home, from the roof to the gardens. There are special touches throughout, like shells collected around the world, hard and soft cover books, games, puzzles and cards. We created a place where we can either come together, or find privacy. What could be better?

What makes this house unique

I love coming in from the beach and being able to wash more than my feet. At my property, I installed an outside shower and changing area and it's extremely convenient - especially when I have a crowd (and I always do!). My family is Italian, and we've always been game players, so having a game table was a must. One that suited the decor was just a lucky find at Two Women and a Warehouse in Savannah! Huckapoo's is just a couple of blocks away and they always have something fun going on; bands, movies, and their pizza is out of this world. The neighborhood is quiet, which was important to me, and I love my built-in hot tub overlooking the ocean. I don't think I'm ever more relaxed when I'm lounging in it. Because there is street parking for four cars, I can always have my friends come visit and we never run out of room. I especially love the game table I recently got at a local shop that has a hidden compartment I've stocked with cards and chips. Although I do love to visit Savannah when I'm there, I've made it so fun at my home, I almost don't want to leave!

Can't Wait to Visit Again!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Tybee Island home, everything was great. We actually felt like we were staying in someone’s home, not just a vacation rental. Not only is the master bedroom/bathroom large, the other 2 bedrooms/baths on the top floor are more than accommodating in size. Any size/type meal can be prepared as the kitchen is fully stocked with appliances and utensils normally not found in a rental. The personal touches throughout the home were very much appreciated.

Great Thanksgiving Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house and property were as pretty, comfortable and well decorated as we hoped based on the description. Rooms and furniture were very comfortable and spacious. There were plenty of kitchen appliances and utensils. The only minor inconveniences were a couple of light switches that didn't work and one bedroom without a tv cable box, but these were well within tolerance and our entire family had a wonderful experience, and the adjacent beach was beautiful. I would definitely recommend this property and would lease it again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the thoughtful review. I'll check on the light switches and cable box for sure! It definitely helps to know if something has gone awry. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to Tybee.

Amazing location in a bright cheerful beautiful comfortable home with a caring homeowner

  • 5 of 5

After a slight issue With another property Marisa (home owner) and the home away staff stepped up and placed us in a beautiful home in a spectacular location. Home owner Marisa went above and beyond in welcoming us and in helping us discover the beautiful island of Tybee

We truly enjoyed ourselves and could not be more grateful to Marisa and the Home Away Staff for accommodating our large family! Truly amazing to relax walk down to a practically private beach or sit on porch and enjoy the view.

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the stay at your beautiful home. Loved the open space in the kitchen/living area. More than enough room for our family. The beach access was such a short walk and almost private .Our young grandchildren were able to safely play at the water without such large waves. Made some wonderful memories that we will cherish. You were great to work with. Thanks.

Thanksgiving Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week at Bella Costa over the Thanksgiving holiday and it did not disappoint! We all live in different cities in Florida and Kentucky so we decided we would all meet at Tybee Island and spent the week relaxing. Our children and grandchildren loved the house and it was perfect for our family. We had everything we needed and the beach decor was delightful. The grandchildren loved the hot tub and there were many pool tournaments during the time we were there. Even with 10 of us the house is large enough so you feel like you can spread out. We spent time in Savannah, walked on the beach and visited the fort at Pulaski. We made memories that will last a lifetime. I would definitely recommend this beach house!
