Heron Hideaway - 1003 10th St., Tybee Island, GA, 31328
Heron Hideaway has had over FIFTY Five Star Reviews since 2008. We are very proud of that. Some of the reviews are below. This is a new listing with very few reviews because our former management company, Mermaid Cottages, had control of our previous listing.
Heron Hideaway offers the best home away from home experience you can hope for. We visit often and we make sure the house is kept extra nice and comfortable for you and us!
You will find incredible marsh views from every room in the house and from the spectacular 2nd and 3rd level decks. And the beach is only 5 short blocks from our front door!
This is an ideal location for guests that want to be close to the beach, but away from it all. Your location is mid-island and near everything, yet you are in a secluded and relaxed neighborhood. Heron Hideaway is one house off the marsh.
The main floor, located on the 2nd level, is very large and open with a living area, a dining room that seats up to 8 and a full kitchen. Many windows provide lots of natural light. This house is 2,200 square feet so it is roomy unlike many Tybee houses.
The master bedroom is the only room on the 3rd floor. It is enormous with the most amazing marsh views. The master bath (remodeled in 2015) has a shower large enough for two and a heated towel rack. The views never end. You can see Horsepen Creek and the marsh while you shower! The 3rd level screened in deck is very large and has comfortable seating for 8 adults. We plan our days so that we are on that deck at sunset every night!
The 10th Street beach is an easy 5 block walk away - just outside your door and a straight path to the beach. Ideal home for a family, girls getaway weekend or even honeymoon retreat. The house is decorated with my art, my mother's art and the art of other local and regional artists.
Did we mention we have manatees in the tidal creek behind the house in the summer time? And dolphins year round? Two of Tybee's best Fishing and Ecotourism Captains live right next door! Captains Elizabeth and Cecil Johnson run Tybee Island Charters. So all you have to do is walk next door for a boating trip!
Complimentary off-street parking for 3 cars, an RV or even a small boat and trailer. Complimentary WiFi.

Some of our reviews before becoming owner managed:
Beautiful house with plenty of room for our group of seven. Had everything we needed and would definitely stay here again!
My sisters and I enjoyed a wonderful week with our families at Heron Hideaway. This house has it all - location, view, amenities, plenty of space and charm. An easy walk or bike ride to the beach (2-5min) while also enjoying amazing views of the marsh. So peaceful! The third floor balcony is outstanding and the 2nd floor is also great. Of course, you see more of the house in front (between Heron Hideaway and the marsh) on the 2nd floor but the view is still really lovely. We rented bikes, explored Savannah, visited Fort Pulaski, lounged on the beach, and watched sunsets and one spectacular thunderstorm from the porches. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Heron Hideaway. The house was lovely, the artwork great! Had wonderful sunsets every night! Be aware that the house is close to other houses. This is a year round residence neighborhood. We took our bikes and used them for everything. Enjoyed some very good food at Social, twice! Loco's was great too! The owner of Loco's (and everyone) couldn't have been nicer, she blows a conch shell at sunset with a special cocktail included! We will be back! Oh, the ping pong table was a great perk! Thanks!
We rented Heron's Hideaway for 4 nights for a long weekend escape. The cottage was perfect! Very clean, great location and plenty of room for everyone. We had a party of 7 ages ranging from 6 years to 65 years. I would recommend calling ahead to rent a golf cart. Parking on Tybee can add up. Golf cart parking is free and makes it easy to get around the island.
"Location, location, location! We loved it!"
Best vacation home on Tybee Island! Location, location, location! And so very beautiful and comfortable. The central island location with Marsh views cannot be beat. Heron Hideaway is near all the good restaurants and beaches yet it is in a private location on the marsh. We loved watching the tidal marsh fall and rise every 6 hours. We love the bird watching from every window! Amazing views from the 3rd floor deck of the tidal marsh and sunset. Big, comfortable home. The pictures do not do this house justice. Game room for the kids was an extra bonus. We took a boat tour with Captain Cecil next door that was amazing. A do not miss experience. Saw dolphins everywhere!
We spent a week at Heron Hideaway with 6 adults and 2 teenagers. There was plenty of room and plenty of supplies. We didn't need to bring anything for the kitchen except the ingredients. We only ate out 2 nights during the week. The sunsets were fantastic and we enjoyed watching the tide highs and lows in the marsh. It was quiet yet right in the center of everything.
Heron Hideaway Bliss"
Perfect location, accomodations and floor plan - separate 3rd floor like a honey moon suite. Loved food prep in well equiped kitchen. The beach is an easy walk to an unforgetable Tybee.
"It was a fabulous week!"
It was such a good time we extended our stay. Loved the accommodations.
Tybee Island was a fabulous place to be. Low key, friendly and beautiful. The house we stayed on was on the marsh side and had breathtaking views where you could watch the sun set every night. It was a beautiful house with such great furnishings and artwork. I look forward to go back and I want this house again!
Lovely spacious house was perfect for our family of five. Close enough to the beach but quiet and secluded.
We loved this house. It was very comfortable and had an amazing view from the upper deck. The ping pong table and the grill were heavily utilized. Renters should know that there is NO water access from this house, as there is another house between it and the marsh.
Excellent. The cottage was clean and neat and the view from the upper bedroom was incredible. The kitchen was well staffed with kitchen things. Parking was easy. We had a great time.
The cottage was located centrally for all amenities and it was only a 10 minute walk to the beach. The supermarket was only 2 blocks away and stocked a good range. Inside the property was dressed in a quirky, but pretty way with lots of seaside touches. All rooms were spotlessly clean and a good size. The kitchen was well equipped for preparing meals. The 2 outside verandas had chairs and tables, where we ate most of our meals, whilst watching the activity on the creek. The only area which could be improved was the small garden to the rear of the property. We wanted to sit in the sun for an hour, and it would have been nice to have a couple of loungers. The web descriptions were accurate. Tybee Island is fun to explore and we rented bikes for one day. Using the bike routes, we were able to cycle the full length of the island. We also took a boat trip to see the dolphins, which was excellent and we were treated to lots of dolphins in their natural habitat. Restaurants we visited were AJ's Dockside, North Beach Bar and Grill and the Crab Shack. All provided good food and AJ's also had entertainment. We would highly recommend Heron Hideaway to any future travelers.
