About The Owner

We are comprised of three sisters, Susan, Karen and Renee, and our respective families. Our parents rented a home at Tybee every summer and we grew up surfing the waves, strolling the beaches and crabbing on the back river. In 2005, we got together and decided to purchase a beach house of our own. We named the LLC, Charlie's Dream, after our father who had passed away years earlier but had longed to own his own piece of Tybee. Our dream with Yellowfin, has always been to enjoy wonderful family times there but to also open it up to other families so they could make there own special Tybee memories. Our grandmother lived on Tybee when the only access was by train or boat. Our grandfather was actually stationed at Fort Screven on Tybee's North end decades ago. Susan's daughter, Jennifer, was married on the beach the summer of 2001 and Renee's husband proposed to her in the one spot he knew meant more than any other...Tybee Island. It has been a magical place for us for generations and we hope at our beach home, Yellowfin, you can capture some of that same magic with your family!

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

What makes this house unique

When we gather as a family at Yellowfin, we love to cook family meals. The kitchen is huge and one of my favorite things in the house is the large green tile counter in the kitchen/dining area. It is our buffet table for meals and it is where the kids eat their breakfast. Like the kitchens at home, it tends to be the room we gather in. We also love to gather at the tables on the screened porch and play card games and board games or just catch up with one another. The children and their friends like to stow away in the downstairs surf shack and Lighthouse room as far away from the adults as they can get. It is always fun to see the pictures they take when nobody is looking. If the lemon tree has fruit, they like to pick lemons, make lemonade and set up a stand. When the children were a little younger, it was nice having the fenced yard. Sometimes they didn't want to be inside and they don't want to spend every moment at the beach. In the fenced side yard they have played frisbee, tag, volleyball and more. Renee's girls are now 13 and 15 and will spend plenty of time at the beach but also love walking down Tybrisa and going in the shops. We always go to AJ's Dockside on the back river at least once while we stay and the kids insist we get ice cream at Tradewinds. You have to try their Savannah Mud! We enjoy riding bikes on the island, visiting the lighthouse and feeding the alligators at the Crab Shack. If the adults are wanting a special dinner out, I would have to suggest the Sundae Cafe. It is actually my favorite restaurant on Tybee or Savannah! The food is delicious every single time.

It was a perfect house for all us girls. Tybee Island is a wonderful getaway place to go. Love it !!

  • 5 of 5

The house was the perfect size and location. We had a large group of adults and young children. It is close to the beach and to walk downtown. Best place for us was the big porch, we spent a lot of time there. We had a wonderful weekend at the house.

Perfect house for our stay

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved everything about this house. It held our family perfectly. Our favorite spot was on the back porch. We loved sitting out and visiting with each other. Great location to beach and IGA.

Great house.

  • 4 of 5

We used the porch most of all, the house is older as most on Tybee are, but laid out perfect for our group. I always take my own coffee pot so we can have 2 pots going at the same time but I did not use theirs. They have 2 and both need replacing. We ate all meals out, so coffee an junk food was all we ate there. so the kitchen was not a big deal. We had a little electrical problem with the TV, it just cut off in the middle of a movie and we could not get it to come back on , but after 5 men working with it, they decided to change to another plug in and it worked the rest of the weekend. Couldn't miss those college games. We were a Christian group and had a great retreat. However, it is the first time I had to make my bed when we got there, the rest was just normal for a rental.

Another great stay

  • 5 of 5

Our only problem with the house this summer is that we were only able to stay a week this year. Yellowfin is just a great place to stay. Renee and her family bend over backwards to accommodate. Nuff said. Hope to make it out for a third year in a row next summer but for two weeks again.

Very good location with plenty of room for a large family

  • 4 of 5

Downstairs has 3 BR (all with full beds and one with additional bunk beds) and 2 BA, kitchen area with full size fridge, a small table and chairs and an air hockey table.

Upstairs has 3 BR (2 with king and one with full) and 3 BA. This level also has the main kitchen, family and dining room. There is a huge screen porch off of the dining room with 2 tables and 10 chairs for extra seating during meal time plus a love seat and 4 more chairs for conversation time or relaxing. There are steps from the porch leading to a small grassy area where the gas grill is located. The grill had plenty of space for grilling burgers and dogs for my group of 12 adults.

Underneath the screen porch is a storage area that has chairs, an umbrella, beach toys and other items to use and enjoy on the beach. There are also multiple carts for hauling your gear to and from the beach.

The beach access is a short 2 blocks away.

The house was clean, except for the dust on some of the ceiling fans in some of the bedrooms. My wife and I cleaned them up a little when we first arrived.

My bed was very comfortable and I heard no complaints from other family members regarding their beds.

The owner was very easy to work with and was very prompt in responding to any and all communications.
