  • Great Place on Tybee

    "We really enjoyed our stay in Tybee. Literally no sun so a lot of time spent walking around and watching football and just the perfect place to do so. The condo is in walking distance to a lot of little shops and restaurants and close enough to the beach where you can walk back and forth. The inside is very nicely decorated and accommodating for cooking and just hanging out. I am holding on to this condo information for another visit."

  • Wonderful "Tybee Time" get-away

    "We are 3 retired siblings from different parts of North Carolina. We were so fortunate to find this great condo - it suited our needs perfectly - really spacious, beautiful furnishings - comfortable beds. It was just a very short walk to the beach - and also to some great restaurants. We had several delicious dinners at Sting Rays! The wait staff was very friendly - a casual and comfortable eatery. We also liked Spanky's . The condo owners kindly gave us a late checkout since the condo was not rented for that second week in February! This first week in Feb. was a great time to be in Tybee - uncrowded, but mild temps, and most restaurants and shops open! Thanks for a great, relaxing time! Oh - the elevator was a real plus - not having to lug suitcases, etc., up a flight of stairs."

  • Perfect Home Away from Home

    "I can't say enough great things about our experience here. The house is wonderful. I could list all of the things that I loved about the house but just read the description they have and know that it's all of that and more. But my highlights are: the pool - it's bigger than it looks in the photo, the master suites are huge and have great bathrooms with nice jet tubs, the decks looking at the lighthouse are big and cozy and the furniture is very comfortable and not just "beach house" stuff that's only for looks - I've stayed in places with the latter and it's a bummer. And the owners are wonderful folks that take a great interest in making sure that you have a perfect stay. You absolutely can rest assured that they are active owners who take great care of their house and want you to relax and enjoy yourselves. Also - the Lighthouse is not bright at night, so don't worry about it's light shining in. :) If you have any other questions, I'd be happy to answer them (if that's an option on here). Thanks for such a great vacation!"

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.
