Recent Tybee Island reviews

  • Cozy, clean, and neat.

    "This was my first time staying on Tybee Island and trying out a rental property. The condo was very cozy, neat, and cleaned. It was basically as the ad described it and quite easy to find. A little walk down the road put you on the walkway to the beach and it wasn't that far a trek, not to mention the fact you did not have to cross a road to do so. I met up with one of the neighbors renting the other portion of the house in the laundry room. They were polite, nice, and also seemed quite happy with their rental as well. The children really enjoyed the condo as well. I hope to come back again another time and stay much longer."

  • Sea Sight Villa Unit D

    "Great location, good parking, clean and nicely decorated. The only negatives were the mattresses that were too soft. I had to sleep on the couch the last night. The Island was nicer than we expected. Rent bikes and tour the entire island in one day. Ride down the bike path to the light house and return on the beach at low tide. Lots of bars close by if you are into partying."

  • Our summer vacation

    "The location and home are fantastic, we made daily trips to the beach with our 4 year old granddaughter, we walked to restaurants, the pier, shops on tybee, everything is in walking distance. We loved the cottage, everything you need for your time away from home is here, (washer, dryer, wifi, cable, phone, outside shower room, deck, gas grill, many amenities I am sure I am not including, We love it here and would recommend it to all!!!!The cottage was clean, the owners provided an easy rental transaction. I would recommend, "The crab shack" and "Lighthouse Pizza". One of our favorite things to do was take nightly walks on the beach and to sit on the swings on the beach under the stars and listen to the ocean waves. "
