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.

Owners were very nice and welcoming. The house is in the middle of a quiet residential area halfway between Savannah and Tybee Island. Pool is great and house is well stocked. I would stay there again.
We found our space clean, well maintained and functional! Attractive inside and out.
This was a getaway weekend trip with our adult daughter to see the sights of Savannah. The view is spectacular to get the feel of the unique area, it is secluded and quiet. The jasmine were in bloom and the scent will be part of our memory of the trip. Easy to drive in to see the sights .
Peaceful and Relaxing
The home is in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood and the backyard and dock felt very private as we never saw another person while back there during our stay. The back yard has many charming little areas and a constant cooling breeze. The rental unit had everything we needed and an attractive set up and decor, but several of the furniture pieces could use an upgrade. The king size bed was the most comfortable, yet firm, mattress that I have ever slept on.
Our big disappointment was the fishing. It was anticipated to be the highlight of our stay for my husband, but despite using the recommended bait and fishing at low tide, twice every day, he only caught one fish.
Our last day there, while we were sightseeing in Savannah, a lawn maintenance company came and mowed and trimmed. They also treated the lawn with some chemical and left a small sign in the yard warning people that it was hazardous to allow their pets on the lawn until the next day. This was the size of a postcard and we didn't see it until after both of our dogs had played and rolled around on the lawn in the back yard. We also had no choice but to take them back on it for potty breaks. Fortunately, we have noticed no ill effects afterwards but it was upsetting at the time.
The owner was very easy to contact while making our booking arrangements, and replied promptly. We didn't need to contact him for anything during our stay.
Exceptional home, spacious and clean.
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
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!
Such a beautiful view and lovely homeowners! Will definitely be back 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.
