About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Sun room, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 10)
Our renovated 1930 Tybee cottage is one of the few private cottages available to rent on the south end. From our lot, it is one hundred steps to the dunes. It is great for families. The home is on a private lane with absolutely no traffic. Small children love playing in the tidal pools on the beaches on this end of the island. Sunsets over Little Tybee are amazing.
Unique for Tybee, the home comes with an extra lot to give kids more room to play. The extra lot also offers plenty of parking for a group getaway to the beach. House layout perfect for families with a family suite, play rooms and plenty of games. The location allows you to park your car and never drive again. Short walk to restaurants or just to get a snow cone. Call 912-433-4713 or email us at email@example.com if you have questions. Check out our Reviews!
The home is large enough for several families. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms with queen beds. The 'sun room' is a great place to gather as a group and includes a piano. It also has a queen sofa bed. In addition, there is a dining room off the kitchen, as well as a kitchen eating area with enough room to seat 12 for dinner. A perfect place for everyone to share their day over a great meal.
Downstairs there is a separate bedroom suite with a private bathroom, queen bed and two twin beds. The suite opens up to the back deck. The queen bed is separated from the twin beds with a privacy curtain. Downstairs also includes a play room, foosball game, another queen bed, extra 1/2 bath and laundry room. In addition, there is an outside private shower.
We love to entertain, so there are two decks outside. A large gas grill is also provided.
The house also has high-speed internet, wifi and cable.
Rest easy to a 'worry free' vacation, as we have a caretaker cottage on the property as well. 'Uncle John' will be sure everything with the home is perfect. John has been a member of our family for many years so he will gladly help you in any way.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

The beaches on the south end have incredible sun rises and sun sets. Though only a short walk to the historic Tybee Pier and Restaurant district, the beaches here are rarely crowded. Once you arrive, there is no reason to ever have to move your car again.
The southend beach also has a beautiful view of 'Little Tybee' a protected natural preserve and a short kayak trip away. A great family outing. Hiking on 'Little Tybee' is truly one of the experiences of a lifetime.
Tybee Island is itself is one of the few remaining true 'beach towns'. In addition to everything a beach offers, it also has great fun and educational activities for kids including surfing, kayaking, fishing, walking up the steps of a 1800s lighthouse, visiting civil war forts and taking guided beach walks at the marine science center. Just 20 minutes from Tybee Island, guests should also visit historic Savannah, considered by travel guides as one of the most beautiful cities in North America.
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: This was our home for ten years where we raised our two children. We originally moved to Savannah in 2002 and bought the Tybee house a year later as a second home. Yet, we fell in love with Tybee and sold our Savannah home and moved in full-time early in 2005. Four years ago we tearfully moved to Decatur where I took a new job. Decatur is great, but we miss the stars, sunsets and sounds of the surf. We have two great boys who are now 19 and 15. Currently, we live in Decatur, Georgia. I work for a healthcare software company and teach political science at Georgia Tech. My wife is a middle school language arts teacher.
Why the Owner Chose Tybee Island, GA, USA:
My wife and I for a number of years would visit Tybee and pull up our beach chairs on the beaches on the Southend to relax and watch the sunset. After the first sunset and cool breezes, we were hooked. When we decided to buy a home on Tybee, I spent months waiting for a home to come available between 18th Terrace and 19th Street. The Southend is also close enough to the Pier, restaurants and shops to walk, yet far enough where the beach isn't as crowded. Better yet, just walk around the tip to the beaches facing 'Little Tybee' and it will be almost empty. Also, the main road on Tybee Island ends on the Southend and becomes a narrow two lane road. Therefore, the cars go really slow. Therefore, we didn’t have to worry about my two sons walking down the street or riding their bikes. Why did we choose this particular house? The location is perfect. Since we are only the 4th house from the ocean you can hear the waves and the surf. It is really nice to have private access to the beach as well. I also like historic houses, so the home still has its original 'bead board' from the 1930s. The extra lot is a big plus. We had plenty of room to park and it gave our two boys enough space to throw a baseball, play football or shoot baskets.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love to invite people to our home. For entertaining, we have two decks surrounded by palm trees. We also converted the original porch into a 'sun room'. This room is large and surrounded by windows, so a great spot to share a cocktail with friends. When family visits us, we can put them in a separate suite downstairs. They really like the extra privacy.
