Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

This 'second row' beach house comes with its own private beach. Originally built in 2002, it has just been refurbished including brand new kitchen appliances. Situated at the mouth of the Back River this house allows boat and kayak access to Little Tybee island and the surrounding waterways.

In the past we have offered a wet slip for boat use at AJ's. Demand for the slip has not justified the cost of continuation. Based on availability, a slip at AJ's may be an option on a nightly or weekly basis.

Why Jim Bohmer chose Tybee Island

This location on Tybee is ideal. Quiet, but quick access to the oceanfront and boating opportunities second to none on the island.

What makes this house unique

Incredible sunsets over the Back River. Immediate boating access to the surrounding waterways. Very quiet area of Tybee with low density of vacationers.

Perfect beach house!

  • 5 of 5

I really don’t want to review this little gem so I can keep it a secret! But I have to share it with the world so others can enjoy it too. This house is fabulous. It is comfortable, clean and has everything you could possibly need. I was so impressed. Thank you Jim for being so thoughtful in your provisions for a relaxing holiday. It is perfectly placed in Tybee Island, right beside the beach and close enough to walk easily to all the shops and restaurants. You will not be disappointed by this house. We will definitely be back!

Perfect for a low-key getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My 5 friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay over a long weekend for our annual board game retreat. You could see the water from the house and easily take a walk on the beach! The site was secluded enough to be away from the busyness of town but close enough to walk/bike places or drive in to Savannah. The house was very clean and well equipped, and there was plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably. The washing machine was very helpful after going to the beach! The screened-in porch overlooking the beach was one of my favorite parts of the house.

The only problem we encountered was fitting our large car in the parking spot under the house since we got stuck in the sand. I recommend using the hose near the garage to wet pack the sand if your wheels get stuck!

Awesome family house!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our family vacation! The location is perfect! Walking distance to town, the ocean and the white sandy beach is your back yard!

We had an issue Thanksgiving morning and between the home owner and the manager, the issue was resolved within minutes.

Thanks again Jim!

Many great memories were made here! We hope to be back!

Great find and very clean

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! The house was exceptionally clean - probably the cleanest rental I’ve ever stayed in. The kitchen was well appointed and had plenty of utensils/plates/cookware etc. We did have to go on a scavenger hunt to find the outside trash can the last day - turns out they are all located near the driveway entrance and labeled with the house number.

This place was amazing! It was excatly as pictures showed. The private beach was great and so close to the house! The main beach was just a short walk. The house was equipped for everything we needed and had plenty of room for our family of 5. I highly recommend this place and we will definitely be booking again!

Nice location

  • 4 of 5

Overall was a very nice house and location. A few things the owner can improve on are the instructions for use of the TV and remote (we had to look around to find) and having a cable box outside of the closet for the main room (we had to open the door to use). Garbage can was not at the house and we had to figure out where it was located in order to use. We had a very large vehicle so parking was a challenge due to the location of a tree and the neighbors fence. I believe the latest storm (Irma) caused more sand by parking so you only had one way to get in and out. Luckily I am familiar with driving a larger vehicle so we were able to park where required. Again, nice location and house, but things to be aware of and the owner has the ability to improve.
