This incredible Tybee Island home was recently completely renovated.

Located just 2 houses from the beach, this 5 bedroom, 5 full bath home will awe you with breathtaking views from the rooftop deck, fabulous features and proximity to activities. The Beach walkover is just 65 steps from the property. Groceries are available just 6 houses away on the main street. Just 4 short blocks from 'Downtown' Tybee, you're within easy walking distance shopping, dining, fishing from the Tybee Pier or Visiting the Tybee Marine Science Center. This house is located on the beach side of 12th St, one of the finest beach access streets with one of the most beautiful beach walkovers on the island. The Beach walkover is just 65 steps from the property.

The home features a classic screened front porch and unique rooftop deck with spiral stair access delivering stunning views of the beach, ocean and even Hilton Head Island. People walking down the street stare in awe at the deck’s construction and imagine the views. It was designed by a master deck builder and enhanced by a structural engineer. The huge 20x12 feet rooftop deck seats 12 and has a picnic table and 6 Adirondack chairs.

The entire house sleeps up to 16 people -- 12 in beds and 4 in sleeper-sofas. The upper levels have 4 Bedrooms and 4 Baths. The large master suite has a king bed and spacious private bath with claw-foot tub, separate shower and twin vanity. The second bedroom has a queen bed, twin bunks and private bath with shower/tub combo. The third bedroom features and King bed and “peak” of the ocean, and dedicated hall bath with shower/tub combo. The fourth bedroom features a queen bed and full bath with shower and large vanity. There is also a full sofa bed in the family room as well as a queen air bed. All bedrooms in the home have their own TV.

The large kitchen is fully equipped with everything you’ll need including upscale appliances, a breakfast counter and granite countertops. The kitchen is adjacent to a separate dining area. The family room offers a wonderful experience with a large, flat-screen TV and access to the front porch and kitchen. The first floor features refinished heart pine floors and classic white wormwood cedar walls. The front porch has seating for 6. You will love the home’s layout. You can stay connected through high-speed cable internet and wireless internet as well. The upper 2 levels provide 1900 square feet.

The ground level features a large private bedroom, bathroom with shower and large family room area with a queen sleeper-sofa and extra seating. It is set up for spacious gathering. The ground level has its own separate heating and air system and provides an additional 800 square feet.

The home has parking for 6 vehicles: 3 large and three medium to small.

We are pricing this home below comparable homes. We don’t think you’ll find a finer home for a family and friends vacation anywhere on the island.

About Jack and Dee McKlveen

We purchased this home in late 2014 and began 7 months of renovations. We set it up for the perfect vacation home for our family and friends. Nearly every surface was touched in the renovation. It was important to us to have a bathroom dedicated to every bedroom. The house turned out even better than we imagined.

We also own 4 fabulous condos on the island. We love Tybee Island and all the wonderful experiences it brings to us and our family.

This home is a real gem. We especially liked the screened in porch. Plenty of room with the separate apartment downstairs. Great location. Love beautiful Tybee Island!

Owner's Response: We appreciate the kind words. We took great care during the renovation to set this house up for families and groups needing space and privacy. Guests tell us the 5 full bathrooms make a big difference. We personally love the location -- quiet street, beach access just a few steps away and only a few blocks from restaurants, shopping and the pier and pavilion. And the views from the rooftop deck are stunning and panoramic. Jack and Dee

I recently rented this property for a group of 10. It was ideal! The house is exactly as described on this site. I am a stickler for cleanliness, and the level of cleanliness exceeded my expectations. Check in was so simple, and everything was ready at the office. The house is right by the boardwalk to the beach, making for easy access. It was well equipped with everything you could possibly need while staying. I would rent this place again with absolutely no reservations! The owners are also extremely quick to respond to all communication and very easy to deal with.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review, Melanie. We work hard to keep the house in excellent condition and clean. We completely renovated the house in 2015 and took great care in making decisions that benefit guests -- such as adding two bathrooms and selecting nice furnishings and details. Being so close to the beach on a quiet street is a huge advantage for beach access. Guests also tell us they just love the panoramic views from the large rooftop deck and the 5 full bathrooms for privacy. We particularly pride ourselves in responding quickly and being available for questions. Jack and Dee McKlveen
