  • Great family get together

    "We just returned from this great home on Tybee Island and wished we could have stayed longer. We were there with family to attend a family wedding in Savannah and were so pleased we were able to find this home to accommodate all of us, 9 adults 3 children. The house had everything we needed and much more, kitchen is very well stocked. There is plenty of room to hang out and visit, and space for the children to play. It is a good location easy to get around with lots to do close by, sight seeing , shopping, restaurants, and easy on and off the Island. The beach access was convenient just a short walk over the dune, although we did not have to carry much as it is still not quite beach weather, but we all enjoyed walking and looking for shells . Our only complaint was there is no bathroom on the first floor where 2 of the bedrooms were located, but that was a small inconvenience. We enjoyed our stay very much and would certainly return to this home again."

  • Ships watch and wonderful time

    "My family and I just returned from a spring break trip stay at Captain’s View. This was by far one of the best places we have stayed at on Tybee; it is truly a home away from home. Your rental was just as described on VRBO and we enjoyed it very much I recommend this house to anyone who is planning a trip with family or a large group (if you rent both sides). The rooms are spacious, clean and private. We enjoyed walking on the sandy beach and seeing the container ships go by. The house was really nice and sparkling clean. The small town feel of the island was also great! If we get down that way again, we will be sure to check availability for the very same unit. It was wonderful!"

  • Relaxing Escape

    "The hosts were exceptional and the cottage was everything we were expecting. It was comfortable, clean, and cozy with the right amenities. The location was great for our outdoor activities. We kayaked in the back river and bicycled the island. Restaurants were within walking distance as well as the beach. The area was quite and very private. We chose this because it was pet friendly and that turned out to be very true. There were plenty of convenient streets and areas to walk the dog. We like Tybee in early March before the crowds arrived for St. Patie's Day."

  • BEAUTIFUL, CONVIENT TO BEACH, RESTAURANTS & SHOPS.

    "THE CONDO IS BEAUTIFUL, CLOSE TO THE BEACH, HAS EVERYTHING YOU NEED,..coffee pot, hair dryer, beach chairs, baby toys. Walking distance to everything .Never cranked my car while I was there. Definitely did not want to leave. It is one of the closest places to the beach., 2 minutes to Spanky's and shopping . Probably would not be good for anyone that cannot climb stairs as you are on the top of the unit. It was very clean and I will be staying there again on my next trip to Tybee. Would love to live there. Master suite is spacious and comfortable. Slept better than I have in years. Would not have been happier any where is. "

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.

- Tybee Island Light Station: Since 1732, the Tybee Island Light Station has been providing safe passage for sailors and mariners into the Savannah River. 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.

Throughout the space you can peruse artifacts, pictures, relics and exhibits detailing more than five centuries of history.

There's a cool, laid-back vibe here that makes you want to just sit back and relax as you enjoy a variety of crab dishes, oysters, soups, stews and much more. Take in stunning views of the water and enjoy a nice afternoon or evening out.

- A-J's Dockside Restaurant: Another great place to grab a meal is A-J's, where you'll find even more delicious seafood. They've been serving customers since 2003, and offer both indoor and outdoor seating. From the outdoor deck, you'll be treated to amazing views of the Back River throughout your meal, adding some serious charm and ambience. If you're having dinner, you may even get to watch the sunset. Try the conch fritters, crab stew, salads, burgers or fish entrees and then rent a kayak and paddle off all those calories!

The sausages and sauces are all homemade, and the chef makes sure that everything is served fresh. Egg dishes, breakfast burritos, burgers and waffles are excellent menu choices to give you plenty of energy to get your through the day's adventures.
