About Mary Ellen Sprague

We live in Savannah and love it!

Why Mary Ellen Sprague chose Tybee Island

Wonderful house for family and friend reunions. Plenty of space to be by yourself or enjoy the company of others. Second floor is more like living in a big tree house with its large porches. Very different than your average home.

What makes this house unique

Easy access to Back River with calm waters and fewer people. Great for small children. Easy access to ocean for those who like bigger waves and larger crowds of people.

This house is all about having fun!

Another great fall vacation at this house!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 7th year to vacation at this great old Tybee home. It it like going home when we walk onto the screened in porch. We have plenty of room to spread out for gathering and playing, and even secluded areas to get a little privacy or a special nap.The location is perfect for the many different activities my family and friends enjoy on the island. Each morning we have breakfast on the 2nd floor porch. In the evenings we gather for dinner on the 1st floor porch and and share our Tybee adventures of the day. We are already looking forward to next September's vacation at this wonderful Tybee home.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house was great. The only problem was with the gas grill. It had a lot of grease built up on it and a fire started on the grill. We tried to use the fire extinguisher and it didn't work. We did get the fire out without incident. The rest of the stay was great and we would come back in a second. It was very close to everything also.

Loved the Porches

  • 4 of 5

Grand home. Loved the porches. Only a short distance to either the river or the ocean. AC struggled in the afternoon as the temperature upstairs reached 81. But overall very good.

The house exceeded all expectations. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting Tybee Island over the 4th of July week as the entire family of 18 were gathered for vacation and my daughters wedding. The island itself was extremely busy with beach goers but the location of the house on the far south end made it not seem that way. It is in a great location, close to the beach and also over the sand dune and beach is in your back yard. The house is well stocked. Plenty of dishes, towels, sheets, etc. all you need to bring are clothes, personal items and food.

We rented the whole house,the upstairs and downstairs and both have huge wrap around porches. With big hammocks to relax in and plenty of porch furniture.

My husband and I highly recommend this beach house. It was the prefect house for all of us.

Perfect for our large family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at several of Tybee’s beach homes over the years, and overall, this home is our favorite! The layout is perfect for a large group (we had 17!). We had plenty of privacy, and loved coming together in the evenings for dinner on the beautiful porches. You can’t ask for a better location, with the choice of a short and easy walk over to the beach to play in the waves, or visiting the back river by crossing over the dune in the backyard! There were many beach chairs, extra beach towels, a wagon, (pretty much anything you might want to take to the beach) provided for us to use during our stay, and the outdoor shower was awesome for washing the sand away before coming inside after a day on the beach. This is a beautiful, well-decorated old home that is very well maintained. The kitchens had everything we needed for cooking big family meals. I’m told all the beds were comfy! We had a fan that stopped working (no big deal) and the owners did a great job getting it fixed immediately. We were so happy with our stay, and hope to return next summer!

Great place to enjoy Tybee

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time at our stay. The house is within easy walking distance to the river, beach, restaurants and shops. The house is was large enough for all of us to have our own space and still still get together when we wanted to. The porches were great for relaxing.
