Overview

Tybee Island House Rental Photos and Description

4 BR 3.5 BA, 2 homes attached by deck offer privacy for groups and families.

Spend your Tybee Island getaway in “Blue Two.” Only a 5-minute walk to the beach!

Our vacation rental property includes 2 houses that are connected by a deck (There's an ancient tree that grows in the middle of it!). One house is named “Blue Cottage” (ID: 969676, sleeps 6), and the other larger one is named “Blue House” (ID: 969674, sleeps 9. Both described below).

In June, July, and part of August, we rent them together only, as a single unit, and call it “Blue Two” (ID: 969670 or 84674). It sleeps total of 15 – large groups love it! During those months, we rent Blue Two for full, 7-night weeks only, Sunday to Sunday.

In autumn, winter and spring, we also offer the 2 houses, each as a single unit, to be rented separately, if that is what a guest wants. After summer, for the rest of the year, you have 3 options:

1. Blue Cottage alone (969676 – sleeps 6)

2. Blue House alone (969674 – sleeps 9)

3. Blue House and Blue Cottage together as Blue Two (969670 or 84674 – sleeps 15).

Blue Two = Blue House and Blue Cottage

You and your family/friends will enjoy staying in these 2 historic homes, connected by a wrap-around deck. The larger house has 2 baths, 2 bedrooms with queen beds – 4 sleeping spaces, 1 bedroom with bunk beds. There's a regular size bunk mattress, plus a full size for 3 sleeping spaces in that room. There is a sofa-sleeper with 2 spaces in the living room for a total of 9 sleeping spaces in Blue House. Also, there is a full, well-equipped kitchen and a washer/dryer.

In addition, you can cozy up in the smaller private cottage off the deck. Blue Cottage has 1.5 baths, one-bedroom (king bed that sleeps 2) and a living room that sleeps 4, plus a well-stocked kitchenette with a second washer/dryer.

Guests really enjoy an enclosed, hot-water shower on the separating deck where you can wash off the sand under ancient trees and the sun or moon. Add a screened-in porch for morning coffee, lunch and games on rainy days, with Mother Nature everywhere around you, and you've got a vacation fit for royalty!

Homey décor, great layout, sun-filled common areas, high ceilings, large windows and pine floors—don’t miss this opportunity to be surrounded by extraordinary architectural character. Drive or walk to great restaurants on the island, and take a morning stroll (3.5 blocks) to watch the sun rise out of the Atlantic. You’ll say, “What’s not to love?”

Why BJ Snow chose Coastal Georgia

Being a Georgia girl, I wanted a place at the most easily accessible beach to Atlanta and mountains of NC. Having old family ties to Savannah made the choice of Tybee feel like the perfect beach location. With its old homes, zoning requirements, and laid back atmosphere, it is great for bike riding, beach walking and enjoying a minimally commercial beach area.

What makes this house unique

The privacy of attached cottage is perfect for a master suite or children's area.

Conveniently located 3 1/2 blocks from less crowded mid-island beach.

Quiet residential street, close to High Tide Surf Shop, Sundae Cafe, The Sugar Shack, MacElwee's Restaurant, Pizza on Wheels, Chu's Market, Island Pharmacy and more.

Comfortable and roomy!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 12 had plenty of room to spread out. The house is beautifully decorated. The beds were comfortable. We loved the outside shower to rinse the sand off after a day at the beach. The beach was an easy walking distance just a short 5 minute walk. This is a lovely house.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your kind words about our property (Blue Two) on Tybee Island. We were equally delighted with how clean your Girl Scouts left everything. It was a great help to our house-keeping crew to find the houses tidied up, including leaving the beach towels we loaned you washed and neatly stacked. We're so glad you enjoyed staying at Blue Two and hope you'll come back anytime you feel the call of the waves.

Great house!

House was great as advertised! Plenty of room to gather inside and out. Screened porch got plenty of use. I would recommend this house to friends and family.

A WONDERFUL VACATION

  • 5 of 5

There was a lot of room in the property for us to all spread out and have our own space. There was also plenty of room to get together for dinner and games.

Fabulous family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a week long family vacation at Blue Two. We maxed out capacity with 10 adults and 5 kids under 12, the house isn't large but we all fit wonderfully, were able to have great meals at the house and lived the beach life for 7 days. I think the screened in porch with ceiling fans and outdoor shower really add space. The house was well apportioned with everything you need. Three block walk to the beach although we took a car most days to transport our stuff and in a great neighborhood that was quiet but close enough to everything! Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: We are delighted that our groups have such a good time. And it really pleases us that guests are enjoying the new porch so much. It's just what we hoped it would be. Many thanks for your kind words and your 5-star rating!

Delightful beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

Three families rented both houses for a week over spring break. The three couples each had a bedroom while the five children had plenty of options- a bedroom with bunk beds as well as pull out sofas and futons. We loved the cheerfully decorated rooms with a tasteful beach theme. The large screened porch and outside hot/cold water shower were perfect for our children. The kitchen was outfitted with excellent cooking utensils. The beach was only a short walk away. We hope to return here for a future family gathering!

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

We rented Big Blue for Thanksgiving weekend. Our son is stationed nearby and he brought four friends for dinner, we had ample space for all of us (8), and the open floor plan was great for serving Thanksgiving dinner, and playing games later. We enjoyed the close proximity of the property to shops, restaurants, and the beach! Thanks so much for a great place to enjoy time with our son, it was so nice to have a home away from home.

Tybee Island
Car: recommended

Within 4 blocks of this home, you will find 6 restaurants, a post office, convenience store, liquor store, a fresh seafood store, an ATM, a pharmacy, 5 bars, a bike rental shop, a surf shop, 2 clothing/gift shops, and a wide, white-sand beach. Pedicab is just a block away. This is like a small horse-drawn carriage except that it is powered by an enterprising biker instead of a horse. A short walk to the north is a large park with ancient live oak trees and a gazebo beside a stream. A short walk to the south is the library and another park with picnic tables. A YMCA is adjacent to this park.
