About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 7)
Our beautiful, quiet neighborhood is full of ancient live oak trees, many draped with Spanish moss. We have a view of the antique Tybee Lighthouse from our porch and you can hear the surf. The park behind our home has a basketball court, walking/bike paths, a softball field and playground, etc.
There are many good restaurants on the island and our favorite casual family bar, Huc a Poos is easily bikable. North Beach Grill, 80 east Gastro Pub, Fish Camp and Sundae Cafe are within walking distance. There are two dog parks a few blocks north of our home--one for dogs under 20 pounds and one for all dogs to run in a fenced in environment. Tybee does not currently allow dogs on the beach. If you disagree with this policy as we do, please go on www.cityoftybee.org and let our city council know how you feel.
Check-in is 4 p.m. Checkout is 11 a.m. unless other arrangements have been made.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: We came to Tybee in January, 2005 for a getaway vacation. We rented a place for 6 weeks and didn't want to leave. We thought we would begin exploring the GA coastline each winter before deciding where we would want to purchase a retirement place. Once on Tybee we knew we didn't need to see any other places and bought a building lot before we left. We built a very spatially and energy efficient home in 2008 we know you will love. We would live in this house year-round if it were not for grandchildren we want to spend time with in VA and PA. Cliff is a retired college math professor and Annie ran Mystic Cooking School in CT for fifteen years. This photo was taken on River Street, Savannah our first winter here with our American Bulldog, Dottie.
Why the Owner Chose Tybee Island, GA, USA:
We were thrilled to find such a casual small town with such a relaxed pace. It is a pleasure to ride our bikes to the library, our little IGA grocery store, on the beach at low tide, and to friendly bars and restaurants. The residents are friendly and made us feel right at home. A quick trip in the car and we're in a good-sized city with all the shopping, restaurants, and more cultural offerings than you have time for--lot of college students to keep things hopping.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have a great collection of cookbooks to browse or actually use, some DVDs (especially chick flicks and baseball movies) and CDs (playable in the DVD player). There are a few toddler toys, sippie cups and baby dishes, Chico high chair, a booster seat, pottie seat that goes onto a toilet.
