Very roomy and very close to beach & restaurants !

  • 5 of 5

Spacious upstairs 2 bedroom and 2 bath apartment gave us (4 adults and 2 children) lots of room. The 3 couches allowed us plenty of comfortable lounging. The rental had 2 balconies and a beautifully decorated common area outside. There is a uniquely decorated outside shower. Short walk to beach, three restaurants, and a convenience store. The apartment is the 2nd building behind Sugar Shack which makes it so convenient to walk to breakfast, lunch, dinner, and that afternoon delicious ice cream or milkshake!! FYI: bring extra towels and wash cloths if staying a week or more. No washer and dryer, but Tybee laundromat is near.

The owners are the best!! They quickly got the living room's 2nd air conditioner going for us. We had one bedroom air conditioner not working properly. The owners promptly checked it out, made a few adjustments to get us through the night, followed up with us the next morning, and installed a new air conditioner. They made sure we were comfortable and cool in the unit this hot, humid July!!

The closest you can get to the beach for the lowest price!

  • 4 of 5

We were literally 200 feet from the beach. The public access walkway was right across the street from the house, and it was one of the only access points that had a mat running all the way down to the shore. This made pushing a cart as easy as humanly possible! The house was perfectly climate controlled, even though they only had window units! The kitchen needs updating, but it was massive and allows you to cook easily for 6 people. We would stay here again, especially in the off season, when the already affordable price is even lower.

Cute Little Place

  • 4 of 5

Walking distance to the beach, as in, the beach access ramp is right there when you exit the building, which was definitely a plus for us. As someone who had never been to Tybee Island before, I wasn't aware that this wasn't near all the shops and restaurants, but there are still some really cool places to check out within walking distance. The "main area" to go on the island was only about a mile or so away, so it wasn't a deal breaker. The beach house is definitely dated but nice. It could use a couple of updates. One of the double bed mattresses was extremely concave and the other had a loud squeak to it with every movement the sleeping person made. The A/C units in the unit could also use some replacing, as they are very loud, so it's just something to be aware of if you are a light sleeper. The location was the selling factor for me, the space was large enough for two couples to be in comfortably, and it was a nice quiet area. Also, be aware that the outside area is for use by all of the units in the building - again, not a deal breaker by any means, but something to note.

Very, very clean. Nice location and well kept.

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice place. All appliances worked well and everything was well kept. The location is great! Got to the beach in two minutes walk. All AC units worked well and kept the place very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

We loved The Shipwatch property

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay at The Shipwatch. The place was cute, clean, and comfortable. It was hot outside while we were there, but the place stayed nice and cool the entire time we were there. We loved having the outside decks and the proximity to the beach was prefect! Pat has everything there that you would need! We loved it and hope to come back someday! I would recommend this place to anyone!
