Overview

About the property

Adorable and spotless, 2 Kings, 1 Bath, Large Patio, Twenty Steps To The Beach.

Papou's Place, Greek for Grandfather.

This small apartment was built for the family that owns it by their grandfather. They have chosen to honor him by calling it Papou's Place. It is a small but wonderful, well loved, ground level, two bedroom, one bath garden apartment, featuring a large patio with grill, all within view of the fabulous Atlantic Ocean. Decorated with the coast in mind, this is the place to be, in the heart of the south end, within walking distance of everything fun to do and see. All the amenities of home. Come stay a night or a week. Perfect for two couples or a couple and a child or two. Maximum occupancy is 6. The bedrooms are roomy and the beds are comfortable. The bathroom, which is shared between the two bedrooms, is very clean and quite adequate. There is room to lounge in front of the TV, sit outside on the patio, hang out in the kitchen, if you choose, but why would you? The beach is just steps from your front door. No pulling wagons or carrying heavy gear to the beach. If you forget something it's just a few steps back to the house. You can hear the ocean breezes from the patio and inside the house. Just in case you're not a beach person, we offer free high speed WiFi, for those of you who came to relax and surf the internet. We love the opportunity to offer this lovely apartment for you and your family and friends to enjoy all the fun activities that Tybee Island has to offer. We are one of the most affordable locations on the island, in one of the best locations on the island. We cater to families and very small groups looking for a clean, quite place to be close to the beach. Perfect for a weekend get a-away, elopements, honeymoons, anniversaries, girls get-together.

This home is owned by a local family and they have spent considerable time and effort making it special for you and we are all very pleased that you would choose us as your vacation location.

Why Paula Crowe chose Tybee Island

Location, location, location, and it is very clean.

What makes this bungalow unique

Without a doubt the location is the best thing about this home. Imagine, no pulling wagons or carrying tons 'stuff' to the beach. You can walk back and forth from the home to the beach in just a few steps. Kids get hungry, need to use the restroom, no problem, just a short walk and you are at home! After a day at the beach you can continue to enjoy the wonderful ocean breezes that invade the open patio just outside your door. No need to "pack " for the beach and make one trip for the day. From this location you can go to the beach as many times a day as you like, not to mention that "night time" stroll.

Cute, Quaint, and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Papou's Place the first week of April for spring break. The cottage was very clean, well-furnished, and extremely comfortable. We were just steps away from the beach. Overall, this was the perfect place for a short trip to the beach! Five stars!

Clean, tidy, cosy, and convenient to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Small but very nice place. Very comfortable. The beach entrance was actually up 18th street a short way (50 ft?) rather than right off the property as we had assumed from the pictures. However, there is very little traffic at this location, so it was not a problem. Don't really have a view of the ocean from the apartment or patio except by looking over the neighbor's fence. However, the beach is such a short walk away, it was not really needed. In the future, we will try to remember to bring a small brush to clean the sand off of our feet before going back into the appt. Using an old towel from the car sufficed for this trip.

Perfect little beach house

  • 5 of 5

We loved our few days at this location. It was steps away from the beach, but still felt private. The two bedrooms were perfect for four adults to share and get plenty of sleep. The small kitchen was enough for quick breakfasts and easy dinners. The table and chairs were great for a quick boardgame too. The television worked well and the wi-fi was enough to keep us entertained. Would have been nice to see a simple outdoor shower for washing off sand from feet after the beach, to avoid leaving sand in the bathtub. A handful of attractions, food and such, within a short walking distance was also nice. Overall we loved our stay and had a great time at the beach!

Fantastic Girls Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

What a charming place! We had the best time. We loved Papous Place. It is close to all the action and we didn't even have to wear flip flops to get onto the Sand! It was about 10 steps away. The decor was beachy, comfy beds and our favorite was the patio-I think we spent more time at the picnic table taking in the ocean air-it was an extension of the apartment! Thank you so much for opportunity to stay and hopefully we will get to stay again in the future!!

Papou's Place was very nice

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed out stay. Very close to beach, restaurants and shopping. Beds were comfortable and everything was clean and had off street parking, so we didn't have to pay to park.

While there are a lot of establishments just within a few steps of this home, the greatest attraction is the beach. You can sit on your patio in the sun and hear the waves, or you can take a chair just a few feet and actually sit on the beach. You won't have to pack a cooler because it's just a few steps back to your home!
