  • Great family beach vacation

    "So relaxing and the view is amazing! We stayed during one of the busiest weeks of the summer and never had to fight crowds on the beach and felt like we were 'home', exactly how we wanted our trip to be. The owners are so helpful and informative and guided us with tips on things to do and places to visit. The condo was so nice and accommodating with ample storage, plenty of towels and we loved all the extras like board games and movies. From the best sunrises right outside your window to the sailing ships and dolphins to the slow-paced, relaxing lifestyle, this condo is a must for anyone who wants a perfect Tybee Island experience!"

  • Tybee at its best!

    "My family of four thoroughly enjoyed Tybee. We typically stay on the south end, but found this property and the north end of the beach to be absolutely perfect. The pictures of the property don't do it justice. The house was clean, the furnishings current, and the jacuzzi was the icing on the cake. We were walking distance from everything from the lighthouse, to various eateries, and to shopping. We will stay at this property again next year."

  • Pure Heaven

    "Multi aged family of 9 stayed here for a week. The property was even better than described! The photos were very accurate. Home was very clean and has been well maintained. The owners were very helpful in answering all questions. The home was well stocked with everything you need: kitchen needs, beds, PAC and play, booster, sand/pool toys, beach wagons. The BIG draw was the pool! Beautiful and well kept. Hope to return again. Loved easy walk to beach. Must see: lighthouse, Ft. Pulaski. Cocos Sunset Grill was wonderful and the Crab Shack was fun for the kids."

  • We really enjoyed this rental!

    "This unit is accurately depicted through the photos and description. In fact, it seemed even nicer once we got there. It vas very clean and very well-maintained. Christa the owner is VERY personable, informative, and from Savannah! She was very available via various contact means to answer any questions. She also has many ideas on local activities. There was everything to do nearby from renting bikes, going the the YMCA for a good workout right across the street, to a couple of very good restaurants "right around the bend!". I would recommend this unit to anyone, and we would all be very happy renting it again! Thank you Christa!"
