Property description

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.

Location

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.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1986

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Tybee Island, GA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Just an ideal location. Close to back river and ocean, but also within walking distance to the Pier and the strand.
