  • a little bit of heaven

    "This home is convenient, quite, comfortable & surprisingly well stocked. The island is beautiful & very laid back. We used Island Hoppers taxi a few times with great success. Hucca Poos pizza is fantastic for both food & environment. Tybee Island Social club has one of the best fish tacos that I have ever eaten and blood orange sangria. And of course the Crab Shack if you want fresh seafood. Captain Mikes Dolphin tours were a big hit with the our family, especially the 4 year old (thanks to a previous reviewer for the recommendation). If you are looking for shells I would suggest taking a drive down Polk St. (just over the bridge) park & walk the trail to the beach around mid morning. But all of the beaches were great. We had an amazing & relaxing stay. I can not wait to visit again."

  • Better than shown in pictures, attentive host, wonderful home and location!

    "We came to stay at Marsh Oaks as a large extended family including all ages, grandparents, teens and young adults and a couple with children. This house was the perfect fit for all! The rooms were large and clean, the common living area was well suited for all and the amenities were above and beyond the normal rental. The owner came before we even got back from sightseeing and took care of garbage and recycling! The beds were comfortable, the location was superb and the kitchens and baths were well equipped. This was one of our most favorite vacations, thank you so much! Would recommend to any age or group dynamic!"

  • Quaint cottage - close to the beach

    "This was perfect for our family! We have family on Tybee, so we wanted a place that was affordable and close to the beach because we knew we wouldn't be there during the day. The walk to the beach is just across the street. Be aware that this portion of the beach has underwater hazards - so you have to go about a block down to clear those. It's still better than driving to North Beach! The cottage is very comfortable and the perfect size for a family of 4. Everything was exactly as described and pictured, which I appreciate. The shower is a little odd because the tiled floor has a pretty steep slope to the drain, so you feel like you are sliding in - but the water pressure is great and there is ample hot water. We'll be back soon!"
