Property description

Our previous guests will notice that we're sporting a new coat of paint in 2016! But we are still located on a beautiful tidal creek on Tybee’s quiet north end, about a half mile from the beach on the Atlantic Ocean/Tybee Lighthouse side, about a half mile from the beach on the Savannah River side, and walking distance from the Tybee Wedding Chapel. Scroll down to the map to see our location. There's more noise and action on Tybee's south end by the pier, about 2 miles away.

Both our bedrooms have queen beds. Each bathroom has sink, toilet, shower and tub. All linens are provided. Hose that sand off at our outdoor shower!
Our living room has a queen sleeper sofa and a flat screen TV with DVD and streaming movies. We have wi-fi.
One set of French doors opens onto our gracious porch from the LR/DR/kitchen, and another opens onto the porch from the marshside bedroom.
Oh, did we say porch? This porch is 1/3 again the size of our indoor space, and it's our favorite room! It's all yours, and even boasts a private stairway to the carport.
The kitchen is supplied with everything you need for dining and cooking. Yes, there's a coffeemaker and filters, and no, it's not a K cup.
Please note: although children are allowed, we do NOT consider the Treehugger child-proof. Electric outlets are not covered, low cabinets and drawers do open, there are two glass table tops, no safety gates on stairs, no child sizes except a set of dinnerware.
The Treehugger is up 14 steps from the carport and is all on one level. The front stairs have handrails on both sides.

Tybee is a great place to be when things are happening and when nothing's happening! Walk the beach, enjoy wildlife, attend a benefit or community theater, eat out, order in, watch the full moon rise above the ocean, or just sit on the porch. It's the rhythm of life on Tybee.

In winter, there's the Tybee Critz Half Marathon. Spring brings the Wine Fest. There are numerous festivals, benefits and runs every year, in addition to community theater, birding, beachwalking, lighthouse and science museums, fishing, crabbing, dance halls, historical and eco-tours. The Savannah Music Festival, Rock n Roll Marathon and other activities are available in beautiful Savannah, which is 18 miles away. Or, just relax and enjoy the view!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We both grew up in the Carolinas. We first met in our teens, went our separate ways, and reconnected on Facebook in 2010. We married in June of 2011. His retirement career is captain and tour guide of Capt. Mike's Dolphin Tours; she has a day job in Savannah. Pictured above, we did the Polar Plunge on New Year's Day, 2011.

Why the Owner Chose Tybee Island, GA, USA:
We lived in the Treehugger first. In July of 2011, we purchased the upstairs unit, where we now live. We are fortunate to be able to offer the downstairs as a vacation rental and a retreat for our family and friends.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love it here! Tybee has a lot to offer in the arts, events, history, recreation, dining, entertainment, and nature. The Treehugger is off the beaten path, but close to a variety of activities. You won't run out of things to do, but beautiful Savannah is only a short drive away. Our visitors also enjoy day trips to Beaufort SC, Charleston SC, and the other GA sea islands.
