1811 Chatham Ave. is a traditional Tybee Beach cottage on the Back
River, at the South end of Tybee Island. It has easy access to both
the Ocean and the Back River. The porches extend around three sides
of the house, and are 16 feet wide along the south side. This enables
the family to comfortably gather around and chat. This house is ideal
for large families or close family friends.
The house has air-conditioning, and each room has a ceiling fan.
There are two separate, fully equipped kitchens upstairs and down, as
well as a set of washer/dryers upstairs and down.
There are three bedrooms upstairs and three downstairs. Starting
upstairs, we have a bedroom with two single beds, and it is connected
to a full bath. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and an
adjacent full bath. This bath is shared with the third bedroom, which
has a set of single beds. We also have a pullout sofa bed in the living
Downstairs, the master bedroom has a queen size bed and a private
bath. The Children's room has two sets of bunk beds, and the third
bedroom has two single beds.
There are also two outdoor showers in addition to the others inside.
We have a strict, NO SMOKING policy. This is an old, wooden house.
The beach is the primary attraction. The house is close to both the
Back River and the ocean. Older children often enjoy riding the
larger waves in the ocean around high tide. The Back River is an
ideal place for sailing, kyacking, and swimming, particularly for
smaller children who do not like the waves. In addition, the Back
River has far fewer people than the ocean side.
