Located on Wilmington Island. 15 minutes from historic downtown Savannah, 15 minutes from Tybee Island beaches – but not sure why you would ever want to leave this view! Beautiful view of Half Moon River across the marsh to Wassau Sound, barrier islands and ocean beyond. We are renting to you the bottom floor of our vacation home which has its own separate entrances and is completely separate from the upstairs. Master bedroom with water view has a king bed, flat screen TV. Second bedroom has queen bed, flat screen TV. Sitting area has two large sofas and another flat screen TV. Fully equipped kitchen. Swimming pool with lounge chairs and view of the water. Gas grill and covered outside eating area. Two docks. The long dock, a 900 foot walk out to the deep water river, is a wonderful spot to fish, catch crabs or watch for dolphins. Great private outdoor shower also. You are welcome to bring your boat - public boat ramp or marina is 3 miles by land or 8 miles by water. From the house it is 4 miles by water to beaches and sand bars accessible only by boat. 4 more miles will bring you to the south end of Tybee where you can dock at restaurants such as A.J.'s and the Crab Shack. Bought this home because of the privacy, amazing view and the easy access to the ocean and barrier islands. So fun to go out to spend the day on the sandbars or explore the tidal creeks. Then at home, sit and watch the egrets and great blue herons in the tidal marsh. Because of the 8 foot tidal swing, the view is always changing.

What makes this House unique
Bought this home because of the privacy, amazing view and the easy access to the ocean and barrier islands. So fun to go out to spend the day on the sandbars or explore the tidal creeks. Then at home, sit and watch the egrets and great blue herons in the tidal marsh. Because of the 8 foot tidal swing, the view is always changing. We have also become very fond of the grounds around the house and hanging by the pool. The walk to the river at sunrise and sunset is always rewarding.

This house was a perfect vacation.
We totally enjoyed our stay and we were sad to leave. The house is well supplied and very clean. The view is beautiful and always changing. The house is conveniently located. Jack was quick to answer questions. We will definitely recommend anybody we know going to the Savannah area to Jack's house.
Would give more than 5 stars
I love this place. The owners have done so much to make their guest feel welcomed, and it shows. Spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable. Everything we needed was provided. Plus Plus. WHAT A VIEW! We will return again soon to enjoy the Howkins' hospitality. This is a real gem, so close to Savannah and other interesting things to do, but it always made me smile when I looked out over the incredible expansive view of the marsh outside the windows and from the deck.
Had a wonderful stay!
The place was spotless when we arrived and had everything we needed to be very comfortable for our entire stay.
The views looking out over the marshes changes by the hour and provides a very relaxing atmosphere.
The location is great for getting around and seeing Savannah and Tybee island.
Relaxing in the pool and enjoying the view was a real treat.
We got right off the boat fresh shrimp from Scuba Steve's and had a real feast.
We Spent a little time with the owner Jack, his hospitality was great.
All in all a wonderful experience!
We are presently planning another stay there next year.
Very secluded area with great views. Close to both downtown Savannah and Tybee island.
Rental deserves a rating greater than 5 stars!
Excellent rental that had everything we needed to make our vacation perfect. Watching the tide come in and go out was so relaxing. The pool was warm but that made it better to relieve sore muscles from lots of walking in Savanah. Great location near Tybee Island and lots of Savanah attractions. We recommend the bus tours in Savanah for learning the history of the area. The rental is in a nice neiborhood with friendly neighbors and we felt very safe. The owner responded very quickly to all of our questions. We will keep this rental on our list to revisit in the future.
Lovely and relaxing
We loved staying here. It was well appointed and our hosts were warm and made everything so easy and convenient. We would love to stay here again.
Very quiet location off the beaten path on Wilmington Island. Very little traffic on the street which is a favorite for locals to walk their dogs. Very scenic view of the marsh. There is a community park, playground and lighted tennis courts within walking distance. Nice area for bike riding, walking, roller blading or running.
