  • Great for families!

    "We just got back from a fabulous vacation on Tybee Island. This house was wonderful in so many ways. We had SEVEN children with us--aged 1,1,2,3,4,6,12. The rooms were spacious and cool for sleeping, and the ample shared living spaces were just what we needed. The wraparound porches made our week! Our angels ran around chasing each other while we sipped pina coladas and hoped none of them smacked another with a sand shovel. Delightful! The owner went above and beyond, loaning us his own baby's gear to make for a lovely stay. The beach could not have been better for us or the kids...a short stroll down a private road, then a massive tide pool every morning! Thanks for a great week in a dreamy spot."

  • What a week!

    "Our family had the great fortune of staying here for a much too short week. We were a group of 14 (should have been 16) with 3 generations, the youngest being 18 months old. There was plenty, and I do mean plenty of room in this historic, comfortable, house for our happy chaos. We had such nice weather, so much to do, caught 400 lbs of tasty fish, and had F-U-N. What a week! I want to say thank-you, thank-you, thank-you for a lovely week in that wonderful house. It was a true blessing to us that your family chose to share this home with visitors. Thanks again for the opportunity. We loved everything about the Island and our stay."

  • Great place!

    "We rented Big Blue for Thanksgiving weekend. Our son is stationed nearby and he brought four friends for dinner, we had ample space for all of us (8), and the open floor plan was great for serving Thanksgiving dinner, and playing games later. We enjoyed the close proximity of the property to shops, restaurants, and the beach! Thanks so much for a great place to enjoy time with our son, it was so nice to have a home away from home."

    "A get away for me and my adult children. One a fisherman and one a beach-going shopper. My son could fish in the backyard or just down the street. My daughter could hang at the beach and we shopped downtown while my son was at work. The house is simple but provides for your basic needs while away from home. Debbie and her husband were so incredibly helpful and available! They were so kind! THEY GIVE MILITARY DISCOUNTS! I am amazed at how many don't and I will not rent from them. Thank you for providing a nice place for me to have some very amazing and enjoyable family fun time! We will be back!"
