  • Tybee Fiddler Cottage ROCKS!

    "Tybee Fiddler Cottage was an awesome place to stay. It was very clean and very spacious. The courtyard was very nice and relaxing. The beach was across the street and very easy to walk to. Tybee Island is very pedestrian friendly. There are plenty of places to get a decent meal on Tybee or there is a Publix and a Krogers close by. I recommend Capt. Mike's Dolphins Tours for an up close encounter with wild dolphins. I also highly recommend staying at Tybee Fiddler Cottage. Thanks for making our stay a wonderful experience, Paul."

  • Peaceful and Relaxing

    "My husband, two dogs (Corgis) and I found our visit to Tybee Island very enjoyable and relaxing. Linda was very welcoming and helpful although we didn't get to meet her in person until our last day. Sunset Isle is in a very peaceful location with a lovely view of the Marsh; my only disappointment was not seeing any dolphins playing during our brief stay. Maybe next time. Our dogs even enjoyed laying out on the elevated deck taking in the sights and sounds of the Marsh. The unit was spacious and comfortable; we had everything that we needed available to us. We appreciated being able to walk to the beach (we were disappointed that the dogs were not allowed on the beach, but there were other places to walk them). We loved the island, the proximity to Savannah and our choice in lodging.....We look forward to a return visit.N"

    "Amazing place and a few things already there for beach lovers...chairs, umbrella. Condo beautifully decorated & very cozy/comfortable and big enough for our family (me, my husband, our daughter & son in law and our two grandsons ages 12 & 3. Great location, 3 pools on site and beach was beautiful and not crowded. Close to area attractions: Fort Pulaski, Tybee Lighthouse, fishing charter boats, dolphin tour boats, downtown Savannah. Great place, very relaxing & laid back. Owners provided lots of info about area & very friendly when we called with questions & answered our emails in a very timely manner. Everything on the property very clean & well taken care of. We do plan to return Summer of 2015. A beach loving family from the great state of WEST VIRGINIA"

  • Great Location and Accommodations

    "The condo was very well equipped, clean and quiet with fresh paint and nice décor. The unit is an easy walk to the beach, shops and bars/restaurants. The bed was comfortable and it was nice to have laundry facilities in the unit. It was great for the 2 of us. Chris was very friendly, helpful, and promptly returned our deposit. I would definitely stay again when at Tybee."

Things to Do on Tybee Island

Today visitors can check out the Fort Pulaski National Monument that offers year-round activities. 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. This lovely spot if perfect for taking photographs you'll remember forever with such a beautiful backdrop, so don't forget the camera!

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

In fact, the eatery has been voted as having the "best seafood" and "best outdoor dining" for years. 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.
