  • Low-Key Beach Retreat

    "We were Tybee rookies, so I was a bit nervous. However, this little island is packed with family fun. We appreciated this condo because we could walk everywhere we needed to go. It was wonderful to be footsteps from the beach, stores, and yummy seafood. The condo was much bigger than I expected. It is tastefully decorated and not cluttered. It fit our family of four well. The relaxed atmosphere and friendly people made the trip memorable. It was quiet, safe, and clean. It is one set of condos from the beach, but you can see the beach from the balcony. It is a two minute walk to the water. Comparing with other properties, I find great value in this condo because it was affordable, yet very close to everything we needed. "

  • Tampa Family of Nine--Ages 11-76

    "Staying in this home was a real mountaintop experience for my family...The spacious living areas, both indoors and out, provided endless opportunities for us to play games, read, watch TV, converse, knit, write and enjoy the ocean breezes. The view from the Crow's Nest on the third floor was spectacular, and the sounds and smells of the ocean lifted our hearts. The kitchen, while the smallest of any home we have ever rented (this was the 11th home rented by us), was VERY well-equipped and exceptionally functional...we would rent this house again in a heartbeat. One of our family is handicapped, and we require an elevator in any home if it is more than one story. While the elevator worked perfectly every time, we were grateful for the outdoor ramp that provided us with a backup plan in case something untoward happened. FYI: If a disabled person is a member of your party, it is key that a transfer wheelchair be brought to this rental...My son's power chair was too large for the elevator, but the transfer chair fit perfectly. We were able to enjoy Tybee Island, Savannah, Fort Pulaski, and all the surrounding areas. We highly recommend eating at The Crab Shack and having ice cream at the Sugar Shack. Take time to read at least one of author Bruce Feiler's books, which you will find on a shelf in the living area...This home belongs to his family, and they have spent many a summer day in these spacious rooms. Having read four of his books several years ago, actually being in the Feiler house thrilled me more than I can describe. "

  • Great Place- Hank B

    "This is a first class well cared for condo with a beautiful view. All of the photos are exactly what you get clean and well maintained. My wife enjoys the beach and this gave her the beach and me the beach without sand. Wonderful sea breeze and very convenient to every thing and still the noise from outside is very minimal. Plan to be back next year if not before. I have to say that Mrs. P was very patient with me and the unit is all she said it would be and more. "

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.

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.
