Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

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.

Exceptional home, spacious and clean.

  • 5 of 5

I had a very relaxing stay here with my pet, which was a prime reason for picking this home. It’s more spacious than it looks online, very clean and comfortable, with everything you could possibly need. The marshes are ever-changing and going out to the dock was fun. It was too chilly for the pool or outdoor shower but hanging by the pool was still nice. Exceptional place! I would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful house on a marsh

  • 5 of 5

We spent wonderful week in Savannah. The house was a highlight of our stay! Jack was very accommodating when I asked for a pack and play bed for our baby. He checked with me on the arrival to make sure we got there all right. He recommended outdoor shower that my pre-teen son absolutely loved! It even “inspired” him to wash his hair what he never does without a reminder 😉. The house is very tastefully decorated and spotless clean, beds very comfortable and plenty of pillows. It turned out to be too cold to enjoy the pool in the backyard. We might want to come back for it 😁. Both Savannah and Tybee Island beach are within 20 min drive. For me the best of all was watching ever changing marshes with tides high and low, water birds and full moon, all in the backyard. Perfect place to stay!

Pleasantville

What a great place! Relaxation and sight seeing was the goal on this trip and this location fully filled that goal. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful, great for early morning walks. sitting on the patio watching the tide come and go was fun and relaxing. It was far enough away from the city to provide the solitude we were looking for yet close enough that you could get to downtown in 20 minutes. 20 minutes in the opposite direction was the beach and within 30 minutes of less was lots of hiking trails and state parks. Perfect for a mix of adventures. The Savannah offers so much for every taste.

Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We just had a wonderful stay at this home. Jack was very helpful. The home is very comfortable and pretty roomy. We had 4 adults and never felt cramped. The bed in the master is amazing, we actually looked at the tag before we left so we could note it. The sunrises from the deck with a cup of coffee were incredible. The only glitch was the well pump stopped working (no water pressure) one morning however to Jacks credit he had someone there within 30 mins and we were back up and running. His responsiveness and making sure we were happy and comfortable were outstanding. I can’t say enough good things. This was an amazing way to speak Christmas with family.

Thank you to Jack for making this a wonderful trip.

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.
