Tybee Island house description

This traditional Tybee haven has recently been purchased and redecorated. Savannah Sands is a dream come true for us and we are delighted to share it with you. The house is now available for nightly and weekly vacation rentals. If your group needs extra room, please know that there is a one-bedroom apartment available downstairs with separate entry and backyard. It sleeps up to 6 and can be viewed on vrbo #96574

The property has a lovely private shaded backyard with palm trees, water features, dipping pool, and a large hot tub. The private driveway can hold 2-4 cars. There is a refreshing ocean breeze across the property that comes with the changing of the tide, and you cannot beat the front porch in the afternoon.

A short three minute walk through the park and down the block takes you to the beach. There is a beach wagon provided along with coolers and some chairs. You just bring your beach towels and sunblock and you're all set.

The kitchen is fully equipped with blender, toaster oven, microwave, coffee pot, and everything else we could think of for you. There is a new wall oven and huge stainless side by side refrigerator. The table in the kitchen opens to accommodate larger families... as many as 12, and we've left lots of empty cabinets and shelves for your storage.

The large foyer allows plenty of room for suitcases when you come in the door and floor space for games and fun when you're relaxing. The foos ball table is a fun addition and you'll find a large selection of board games in the hall closet. The hall closet also houses extra blankets, pillows and linens for the queen size sofabed in the living room.

The first bedroom is decorated in a red, white and blue theme. Designed with kids in mind, these bunks will sleep six comfortably, and the room has plenty of extra space. The children's movie selection can be found in here along with an empty treasure chest for their most precious toys. Adults need not feel left out, as the antiques, patriotic theme and comfy beds will make any age want to extend their stay.

The second bedroom is furnished with the queen size suite from my grandmother's farmhouse in south Georgia. The view from your window is of the palm trees outside and the park across the street. This room offers privacy for dressing and the perfect vanity table for your beauty routine while the hall bathroom is otherwise occupied.

The master bedroom is a beach retreat of blue and white serenity with a view of the backyard pool and hot tub. The private bathroom offers a large shower stall with a convenient seat for shaving and an adjustable shower head with long handle and hose for all that pesky sand. This room has a king size bed with lots of fluffy pillows and wonderful light. You will actually be inspired to make the bed every morning.

The laundry room is off the kitchen, and that's where you'll find the ironing board and iron and spare coolers. TV, VCR, DVD and radios available in all bedrooms with the addition of CD player/stereo and video library in the main room. Bring your beach towels all other linens provided.

We've tried to think of everything. Please sign the guest book and let us know all about your stay. And don't hesitate to call if you should need anything at all. Enjoy!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: We are a blended family with kids 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13. We both grew up in Savannah and love having this haven to visit when we go home. Please enjoy!

                  Why the Owner Chose Tybee Island:
                  I've been told that pictures don't do it justice. I've been asked to sell my antiques, that the sofas are nap traps, that the porch is heaven and the view of the firefighters across the street a close second! This place is an undiscovered treasure and we'd love to rent it out even more, so please tell your friends and family for a referral discount on your next stay.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This is a house. The main floor is upstairs and the first level is split into two apartments. One is occupied by my caretaker, who is a 24/7 handyman and 411 service local, and the other is available for rent when you have lots of extra folks with you.
