Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 5 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Only 2 blocks from the beach, this unique rental home is the perfect get-a-way. Enjoy peaceful, quiet nights, in this residential atmosphere. The ocean breeze will completely relax you on the large upstairs screened in porch under the massive oak trees.

We own and maintain this gorgeous vacation home and stay there often. It is well maintained and has just been recently updated with new appliances, new tile floors downstairs and completely painted inside. The house is fully furnished and the kitchen has everything you need.

The upstairs features two large bedrooms, one with a king size bed and the other with a pillow top queen size bed. Both bedrooms have satellite HD TV as does the large family room upstairs that opens up into the kitchen with an entrance onto the screened in porch. Our kitchen offers everything you need if you prefer to cook, including a new gas grill on the porch. There is a full size bathroom with a tub/shower upstairs.

Downstairs has another family room with satellite HD TV so adults and children can each have their privacy. There is a third large bedroom with a double bed and a twin bunk on top, as well as a full bathroom and laundry room. The couch downstairs is a convertable queen size bed as well.

Tybee Island was originally called, the 'Savannah Beach' and for good reason. It's only 15-20 minutes from downtown Savannah. You can enjoy the beach all summer long or tour the island on the Tybee Shuttle. Our home is less than five minutes to the nearest boat ramp, shopping, and plenty of restaurants with fresh local seafood. If you can't bring your boat, there are plenty of fishing charters available. There's no way you won't enjoy your stay. Our home is a 3 minute walk to the beach with the beautiful sand dunes.

You should make definite plans to venture into beautiful Historic Savannah. River Street is an absolute must with shopping and award winning cuisine. There you can watch some of the worlds largest container ships sail right by you on the Savannah River literally only hundreds of feet away. Experience Savannah through the Trolley Tours, Ghost Tours and visit the many National Historic Monuments.

Super sweet and cozy house!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I love to stay at the Merriman's adorable beach house. It is decorated so cute and feels so welcoming. Very clean and well cared for. Such a peaceful place. Perfect for families or a "sisters only" getaway! Has every amenity you need. Super comfy beds! We stay here every year--love the cozy feel of the house. Walking distance to the beach. The owners have put their hearts into this special place-you'll feel it! We have made memories here that will last a lifetime!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay at this beach house immensely. It was a home away from home! This was my third stay at this property and it was exactly as it's been in the past. Very clean, tidy and welcoming. We found everything we needed in the home and even some things we forgot to bring. The bedrooms were lovely and I slept like a baby every night. The property is well located and within walking distance or bicycle ride from many venues. I look forward to returning again next summer!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Southern Comfort. The location to the beach was perfect. Less than 5 minutes to be sitting on the sand. The shaded, screened porch was a great place to relax and visit with our gang. The house was clean and had all amenities needed. I would definitely go back and recommend this place to everybody.

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Tybee Island for a few days, but I wish we could have stayed longer. The house is very clean, comfortable and full of character. There is a serene, white beach just a five minute walk away. The cherry on top of our vacation was renting a limo golf car to explore the island. We found good local restaurants and art shops and enjoyed mingling with the friendly locals. I recommend this place for a single family vacation, or two families comfortably on each floor. Ah, and I almost forgot... there is a great porch for having a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine!

Perfect for our family.

  • 4 of 5

This was a great find. It was the perfect location for all the things we wanted to do. It is a nice-sized lot, just two blocks from the beach. It was clean and well-maintained and the perfect size for a family with two teenagers. It was our first trip to Tybee, and I expect we will probably come back - and stay right here.

Thanks so much!

Fort Polaski, a civil war fort is at the entrance to Tybee Island. Tybee Lighthouse is a beautiful piece of history. For great seafood, go to AJ's Dockside (beautiful sunset) and Marlin Monroe's (on the beach). Also, 80 East Gastropub is a great new place with great craft beer!
