Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We are comprised of three sisters, Susan, Karen and Renee, and our respective families. Our parents rented a home at Tybee every summer and we grew up surfing the waves, strolling the beaches and crabbing on the back river. In 2005, we got together and decided to purchase a beach house of our own. We named the LLC, Charlie's Dream, after our father who had passed away years earlier but had longed to own his own piece of Tybee. Our dream with Yellowfin, has always been to enjoy wonderful family times there but to also open it up to other families so they could make there own special Tybee memories. Our grandmother lived on Tybee when the only access was by train or boat. Our grandfather was actually stationed at Fort Screven on Tybee's North end decades ago. Susan's daughter, Jennifer, was married on the beach the summer of 2001 and Renee's husband proposed to her in the one spot he knew meant more than any other...Tybee Island. It has been a magical place for us for generations and we hope at our beach home, Yellowfin, you can capture some of that same magic with your family!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we gather as a family at Yellowfin, we love to cook family meals. The kitchen is huge and one of my favorite things in the house is the large green tile counter in the kitchen/dining area. It is our buffet table for meals and it is where the kids eat their breakfast. Like the kitchens at home, it tends to be the room we gather in. We also love to gather at the tables on the screened porch and play card games and board games or just catch up with one another. The children and their friends like to stow away in the downstairs surf shack and Lighthouse room as far away from the adults as they can get. It is always fun to see the pictures they take when nobody is looking. If the lemon tree has fruit, they like to pick lemons, make lemonade and set up a stand. When the children were a little younger, it was nice having the fenced yard. Sometimes they didn't want to be inside and they don't want to spend every moment at the beach. In the fenced side yard they have played frisbee, tag, volleyball and more. Renee's girls are now 13 and 15 and will spend plenty of time at the beach but also love walking down Tybrisa and going in the shops. We always go to AJ's Dockside on the back river at least once while we stay and the kids insist we get ice cream at Tradewinds. You have to try their Savannah Mud! We enjoy riding bikes on the island, visiting the lighthouse and feeding the alligators at the Crab Shack. If the adults are wanting a special dinner out, I would have to suggest the Sundae Cafe. It is actually my favorite restaurant on Tybee or Savannah! The food is delicious every single time.
