Recent Tybee Island reviews

  • Simple, but perfect

    "Our family and our friend's family recently rented this property and it couldn't haven't been more perfect for us. It was a little dated, or maybe I should say vintage, and there was a weird mannequin with a dress on in the sunporch that became the running joke while we were there, but everything was in working order, it was very clean and most of all it was comfortable with plenty of room for four adults and four kids to hang out and lounge. You really couldn't ask for more, especially because we were just steps away from the beach and close enough to the pier. The location allowed you to walk any place you needed including the grocery store just a couple blocks away. The island is bike friendly so we rode our bikes to the stores, out to eat and to the lighthouse. The cottage provided such things as four bicycles (not the best shape, but in working order), sand toys, beach chairs, beach towels, bath towels, bedding, extra blankets, and more. If you are looking for something fancy, this is probably not the place for you, but it was the perfect place for our families and we are already planning our next trip back and plan on staying here again."

  • My week at Tybee

    "My wife and I loved this place! It had so much charm and was decorated exactly how a beach house should be. The owner took great care in making certain everything that would be needed for a week at the beach was there. This was our first trip to Tybee, the experience exceeded our expectations and made our anniversary special. I can't believe how many dolphins we got to see up close. We thoroughly enjoyed it and will remember it fondly."

  • Great location!

    "We just returned from long Labor Day weekend. Had a great time with 2 adults, 4 college kids & 2 high schoolers! Very clean and well maintained. Pictured as is. Even though no first floor bath, boys loved outdoor shower. Beach was an easy walk with chairs, small cooler and umbrella. Loved the private beach away from crowds on Atlantic side but enjoyed walking around point. Awesome dolphin watching! Owners rec of Sundae Cafe and Wiley's Bbque great! Kids enjoyed Tybee Jetski for the dolphin watching but otherwise it was very restrictive in where they could go. Would def rent this property again!!!"

The fort itself along with the demilune, ditches, drawbridges and dikes provide you with a wonderful example of military architecture, while indoor displays showcase the fort's history from its construction to its eventual fall to improved military technology. You can even take a guided tour to learn even more interesting facts about Fort Pulaski and its history.

This historic station is one of the most intact in the U.S. as it still has all of its support buildings spread out over 5 acres. The station itself has been rebuilt on several occasions and currently displays the day mark from 1916. At the top is a First Order Fresnel lens, and it takes 178 stairs to reach it.
