House, 6 Bedrooms, 4.25 Baths, (Sleeps 12)
This is a classic Tybee Beach House that is unfortunately become unique. It is a style that was prevalent on the island only a decade ago. Built around the turn of the century, this rustic home was built to capture the sea breezes with wrap around porches upstairs and down and multiple doors. In addition to the complete kitchen downstairs, there is a full kitchen on the porch upstairs which is perfect for boiling crabs and shrimp which are plentiful in the waters.
We are located at the preferred southern end of Tybee and have a have a walled in full back yard.

Wonderful historic home, full of character/charm (but rustic), perfect location on Tybee!
We had three families with young children and this house was PERFECT. It has so much charm and a great historic feel, but it is by no means fancy - it is rustic and we liked that. Relaxing on the porch overlooking the backyard was just so nice. The walled in backyard was perfect for the kids to run around without wandering too far (although the house is on the street, we just locked those doors and had no worries that the kids would wander into the street) and we all loved the upstairs and downstairs wraparound porches. It's a short walk to the beach and the southern tip of Tybee seems to be the nicest part. Short walk to shops/restaurants. We barely got in the car all week. The owner is very responsive by text. Nearby fort Pulaski was fun and the Monday farmer's market at the lighthouse was great. Kitchen could use better knives/pots/pans, a few mattresses/linens could be better, and they should put some stones between the outdoor shower and the house (otherwise feet get dirty again), but overall a wonderful place and we hope to return again!
We had 3 generations to come together for a week at Tybee. Since the house only had 2 showers we rotated between the adults which made it awkward and long. The kids used the tubs but then it would leak to the bottom floor. When it rained the house leaked in several places included the front door and onto one of the beds. The bottom floor refrigerator did not keep items cold but cool. The owner did offer to replace it but we just wanted to let stay until we left. Even though we had our problems we enjoyed our time together and it will be remembered as lovely.
Porches were the star.
Coffee and conversation each morning was everyone's highlight of the visit. The house has character and was comfortable. The surfboard was a hit with the kids. We will stay here again.
Great for families!
We just got back from a fabulous vacation on Tybee Island. This house was wonderful in so many ways. We had SEVEN children with us--aged 1,1,2,3,4,6,12. The rooms were spacious and cool for sleeping, and the ample shared living spaces were just what we needed. The wraparound porches made our week! Our angels ran around chasing each other while we sipped pina coladas and hoped none of them smacked another with a sand shovel. Delightful! The owner went above and beyond, loaning us his own baby's gear to make for a lovely stay. The beach could not have been better for us or the kids...a short stroll down a private road, then a massive tide pool every morning! Thanks for a great week in a dreamy spot.
I am so happy y'all had a good time. It makes us really happy when families appreciate the house as much as we do. You are more than welcome back any time!
We rented this property for a family vacation last year and loved it. We wanted to be in an original architecture Tybee house with plenty of room for our extended family to spread out in. The house is close to the beach and convenient to restaurants, clubs, and stores. The owner is an excellent landlord, local, and is quite reputable. We plan to rent the house again in the future and were very pleased. If you are looking for a place for a large family to spread out, want the old Tybee Island charm, a fenced in back yard, close to the beach this house is for you.
Thank you very much. We are glad you like it as much as we do. It will be a pleasure to have you back anytime!
