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.

Recently 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 recently renovated bathroom with 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 in 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!

Beautiful home! Worked perfectly for our large group.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay every much, and the home was beautiful! There were more than enough beds and bathrooms for our large group. It is also only a short walk to the beach and nearby restaurants on Tybee. We would definitely stay here again.

Good memories, good friends, good times.

  • 5 of 5

This is the 6th annual fall boy's trip. We are now at 11 people. Eleven very difficult to please people. We had a great time! Very relaxing. Very close to everything. The pool offered a great end of day relaxation point for drinks and laughs. The house was very clean with little left to wish for. The kitchen is a little small for so many people who want to be involved in the cooking, but that is really minor compared to all the other great things this house has to offer. Thanks to the owners who provide such a beautiful place to relax and unwind!!

Great location with lots of beds

  • 4 of 5

We had overlapping guests, with 10, 14, or 16 close relatives on any one night. We had plenty of beds, but the kitchen, dining, living space would be tight if everyone would have been in the house. Fortunately, with the beach, lighthouse, fort, mini golf, etc, we were only all together for one meal at the house and one at a restaurant. Everyone loved this place. There appears to be some wiring issues as some lights in the kitchen were not working, and there was a power surge that took out the big tv, but an electrician had the tv up in short order. Couldn't have gotten such a quick response in my home town. My youngest grandchild especially loved the pool and for the first time could swim a pool length!l

Some houses we rent leave hotel sized toiletries, but this one doesn't, although we did appreciate the spices, coffee filters, storage bags, etc in the kitchen. Just remember to pack or buy soap, shampoo, toilet paper, etc.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jean. So glad you enjoyed the home and your stay. As a follow up for future guests, Georgia Power came out and cleared up a wiring issue outside the home and no issues since. And as Jean mentioned, we do not supply bath toiletries (shampoo, soap, toilet paper). Most guests usually stay a week and there would be no way to ensure we had enough of these sort of supplies for 18 people every week. Not uncommon in large rental homes.

great vacation

  • 4 of 5

Loved Tybee Island and the location of our house was wonderful, close to the river and the ocean. The house easily accommodated 4 individual families. totaling 15 people!!! Wonderful place for us and all our children and grandchildren to "re-connect".

The pool was a great "extra". The kayaks were great fun. Loved the crow's nest, especially for the sunsets. Owner was easy to work with and the house was very clean and well maintained.

Owner's Response: Thanks Judy. So glad you enjoyed your stay in our home and sounds like you took full advantage of all the "extras". Wonderful just to get away and create new family memories and happy our home was a part of it.

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.
