vacation rental description

Retreat House – Fort Screven – Delightfully Private

Start your day with a sunrise Beach walk and spend the afternoon in Historic Savannah. The “Villa of St Francis” is once again open for quietude, intrigue and charm. This all wood home was originally 2 military properties/ buildings that became a “Retreat House” in old Fort Screven. The current owners have artfully restored and married the two buildings to create a unique 3BR/ 2 BA- “step into the past experience”.

Our “North Beach” and “Ft. Screven” location takes you away from the “Summer-Crowds” with all of the noise and traffic. Park the cars and walk to the closest beach - it’s a short 350 yards and the beach is handicap accessible - & you don’t have to cross Highway 80 to get there.

Ride bicycles to our local shops and markets. Walk to several nice restaurants, or have food delivered. Walking distance to the freshest seafood in the South – “Bowie Seafood”. This property offers a true epicurean experience with an AGA Legacy gas range. 5 burners-2 ovens! Kitchen fully stocked with a wide selection of appliances and cooks’ tools, from coffee grinders to zesters. As you indulge your culinary passions your guests can shoot pool on the “Brunswick pool table” or segue to one of the four large porches. Prepare your feast, and maybe you want to cook your steaks or shish kabobs outdoors on a real fire pit with an adjustable grill, or cook on the charcoal Weber.

Our hot summers are quickly tamed with our excellent air-conditioning and porches on all 4 compass points, - so you just move around to suit your taste for sun or shade. The private yard complements the Retreat effect, and is filled with birds and squirrels and offers plenty of shade with our large Live Oak trees. Come experience Tybee as it should be – Rich in History, Gentle Breezes and Good-Times!

You will be hypnotically relaxed by the quarter sawn flooring and honey-gold antique Heart Pine interiors. “Pet friendly” with gated areas on 2 porches. Fix a great dinner, after a day at the beach and settle into an evening of old-fashioned fun with friends and family! All on ground level, 2200 sf. air-conditioned and nearly a 1000 sf. in porches,one screened porch. The private master suite has its own porch and a new bathroom with large soaking tub & shower. The other 2 bedrooms are in the same building as the kitchen and feature a King -size bed in the larger bedroom, and a Queen-size bed in the smaller bedroom which has a beautiful beach mural painted on one wall.

We offer cable, wireless internet and a large collection of board games. Come, shoot pool & play Ping-Pong. With the hide-away sofa and a few air mattresses we have certainly slept 10 -12. Beach gear, and low-country cooking gear available upon request. This is a “perfect retreat for couples”, families or any get-together. Enjoy the beach!

traveler reviews for this tybee island house rental

great vacation spot!

Review submitted: August 11, 2014   Date of arrival: May 15, 2014

My husband and I rented this house for us and about 9 others to stay for a friend's wedding. It was amazing. The kitchen was fully stocked as far as pots, pans, and dishware which made cooking for everyone very simple. The rooms were beautifully decorated and rather large. Slept all of us comfortably. It was nice to be just a short walk from the beach and other amenities. We have decided to make it our annual vacation spot! Cannot wait to go back!

Perfect Getaway!

Review submitted: April 19, 2014   Date of arrival: March 30, 2014

If you are looking for a laid back vacation spot then the Villa is for you. Our family of 4 and 2 dogs really enjoyed our time here. We had a family of 3 (1 adult and 2 kids) join us for a few nights and there was plenty of room for us all. The house is very spacious and has a rustic feel but has been very nicely remodeled. The kitchen was beautiful and well equipped with all the pots, pans, plates, etc. you need. There is a fire pit out back with benches and chairs where the kids enjoyed their s'mores and ghost stories. We had some friends come from Savannah for a shrimp boil we cooked on the pit as well. Tybee was so nice but a bit cool this time of year. We walked or rode our bikes to the Sugar Shack for ice cream almost everyday. I recommend bringing your bike as there are biking trails throughout the neighborhood and the beach, lighthouse and restaurants are just a short 2 minute or less bike ride from the house. We look forward to coming back here soon!

Second stay and better than the first

Review submitted: February 20, 2014   Date of arrival: August 3, 2013

This is the second year we've stayed here and with the new screened in porch it was even better! A 5 minute walk to the beach, 20 minute drive to Savannah, and bike ride to anywhere on Tybee it is the ultimate location. The house is awesome! Lots of room and great space to gather. Jim is the ultimate host, no rental company to deal with here. Looking forward to next year.
