Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14-18)

Casa Oceano Rio is the ultimate Tybee vacation rental. Located at the convergence of the Atlantic Ocean and Tybee's Back River it is less than a block to 5 miles of one of the best beaches on the east coast. It is also less than a block walk to the secluded and protected Back River beach which offers a quieter and more tranquil environment.

We renovated the 1st floor and restored original 'bath house' from 1929. 1st floor has 2 large BR, 2 baths, including laundry facilities. 2nd floor has kitchen, living room, dining room, 2 BR, and 1 1/2 baths. 3rd floor is the master bedroom loft suite with large bathroom with dual sinks and a large walk in slate shower. Spiral staircase provides access to the roof top deck for a panoramic view of the island and the most amazing sunsets.

This custom built private residence features a 12 person hot tub/dipping pool that is ideal for relaxing after a day at the beach or on the water. This home offers all the toys for an unforgettable beach vacation including 6 kayaks with pull carts, paddles and life jackets, beach chairs, umbrellas, bocce balls, beach cart, boogie boards, beach toys and a large cooler on wheels. No need to pack up all this stuff and bring it with you.

This home is on Tybee's popular south beach area. It is off the main thoroughfares but within walking distance of Tybee's main shopping, restaurant and nightlife district.

Great place to vacation with multiple families and friends. Especially kid friendly as the kids like the privacy of staying downstairs with their own bedrooms and baths, with a TV for movies and a gaming system, while the adults like the quiet of being upstairs. This is a family type home in a quiet neighborhood and the rental party must be 25 years old.

Please check our calendar before inquiring on availability as it is kept up to date. Also, the Rates section reflects our current rates and all additional charges for taxes and cleaning fee are clearly defined.

About Shelly Fields

We used this home as our family residence for 17 years. We have raised our 2 sons here and we are now empty nesters and don't need all this space. We love Tybee and may move back some day but for now we're going to share our little slice of heaven with others.

Shelly Fields purchased this house in 1986

Why Shelly Fields chose Coastal

Willie bought this property and the public shower houses back in the 80s and built his dream home around it. He maintained the integrity of the shower houses and the original tile is still in the first floor bathrooms today. He loves everything about the water (sailing, fishing, boating, etc.) and it was his dream to live at the beach. He then built our home around the shower houses and the rest is history.

What makes this house unique

Just an ideal location. Close to back river and ocean, but also within walking distance to the Pier and the strand.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very clean, spacious and it had everything we needed. The dipping pool was awesome and we enjoyed our time in it as well as up in the crows nest enjoying the view! Loved being close to the beach, shops and restaurants. We did not meet Shelly and Willie but they responded very quickly to messages! I would highly recommend this home!

Great Locale for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Large house, plenty big for a family reunion, well located off the beach, and within walking distance of shops and eateries. Everything works, the pool is great for kids, and a large family room for entertainment. All kitchen items provided, as well as 2 outdoor grills. No complaints from me or my family. Well done, we hope to be back in due time.

Great house & location!!

  • 4 of 5

Great house for large families!! We had 12 people. The three couples had their own rooms while six teenagers shared two rooms on ground floor. Could have squeezed in another couple and child if families shared rooms. Very clean and close to beach. House has ton of beach chairs and toys - leave yours at home. Even had an extra fridge!! We had a great time.

A wonderful home perfect for a week at the beach and enjoying our time on Tybee!

  • 5 of 5

This house was all decked out and perfect for our stay on Tybee. The beach toys, beach chairs, and umbrellas made building the greatest sandcastle ever a breeze and kept everyone relaxing at the beach. The location was perfect for walks to the pier, Wet Willies, and the Science Museum.

We would recommend this house to anyone looking to stay on Tybee!!

Awesome Home and Location

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful! There was ample room for all 15 of us! The kitchen was stocked with every pan and utensils we needed! Having all the beach gear and the kayaks there were a great help to all of us. My family and I are still talking about our week long stay at Casa Oceano Rio and how wonderful it was!

The property was spacious clean and in a perfect setting,steps to the beach, and close to many rest!

  • 4 of 5

There were ten of us for a girlfriends trip! We found the property to be a wonderful space with lots of room for all of us to be comfortable! The kitchen was beautiful and well stocked. We actually ate in most days and had everything we needed. The living area was very comfortable and we really enjoyed the deck space. We had to spend quite a bit of time hooking up the DVD player to watch a movie, and the Wii was terrible, ATT came but didn't make a difference. Master suite and bed very comfortable. We were disappointed that we were unable to use the dipping pool until Thursday, when someone came to help us. This property is a close walk to beach and many local restaurants and shops. We would rent again. The four stars are due to the lack of wifi and that we were unable to use the dipping pool as the temperature was too hot! If these things are working, this is the perfect place!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the home and kitchen. We try to provide everything you could possibly want or need for your stay. I think Sonja is referencing the Wifi issue we had during their stay. Obviously, things like that are out of our control. I contacted AT&T immediately upon notification and trouble-shooted with them for several hours. Unfortunately, the troubleshooting didn't fix the problem and required a tech visit. I was there all day a couple days later and worked on the Wifi and had no issues. Guests since have not reported any issues either. Our maintenance man, Glenn, is on call for any needs guests may have. He was never contacted regarding the hot tub issue. He just happened to be there on Thursday doing routine maintenance when he was notified they'd like the hot tub turned down. If he or we had known sooner that simple issue could've been resolved in no time. We hope all guests reach out to us with any issues they may be having or anything we can do to assist them throughout their stay. We'd love to have you return any time.

Map

Car: recommended

There is no better way to see the saltwater marsh and natural surroundings of Tybee Island and Little Tybee than kayaking. It is exhilarating, relaxing and truly one of Tybee Island's best activities. Kayaks are around $40 a day to rent and we are providing 4 with your rental.

Tybee also has bike routes designated to safely bike around the island. Be sure and make stops along the way at the Lighthouse, Fort Screven, or stop at Seaweeds for an ice cream cone or Huc-a-Poos for a great slice of pizza. Tim's Bike Gear has daily or weekly rentals and will deliver/pick-up bikes to/from the house.
