vacation rental description

Welcome to our private summer home on Tybee's prestigious Back River.
Our house is one of the finest authentic two story beach cottages on
the Tybee Historic Registery, with wonderful large wrap around
porches and a sweeping view of the water, perched right on the beach
to catch the breeze. Ideally located on the south end of Tybee, it is
an incredible vantage point to see the sunsets every day of the year.
And of course, your own hammock to swing and nap in.

The Back River beach has smaller waves ideal for young children, or
for the more adventurous the Ocean is just a short walk around the
"Point". The house is located directly on the beach with a private
dune 'walkover'. If you wish, you can anchor your boat right in
front of the house.

For those of you who don't know the area, we are 20 minutes away from
downtown historic Savannah, with all of its cultural and historic
amenities, and a short boat ride away from Hilton Head.

There are three bedrooms and two full baths upstairs, and two bedrooms
and two full baths downstairs. There is a playroom downstairs with a TV,
VCR, and ping pong table for the kids.

We are sure you will understand that because this is an historic wood
structure, we have a strict NO SMOKING policy.

Here are a few comments from previous guests:

"Our stay at the Tybee Island cottage was like stepping back in time
to a simpler life.It is truly a charming and unique home. A great
place to idle your days away and spend time on many outside
activities. Thank you for sharing your home!"

traveler reviews for this tybee island house rental

Excellent Beach Location

Review submitted: July 18, 2013   Date of arrival: July 6, 2013

My brothers and sisters booked this cottage for a family gathering. We wanted a "classic" Tybee Cottage reminicent of the cottages we stayed in as children. This house did not disappoint. There was plenty of space for all of us.

For a house built around 1904 it was in good shape. We did have a minor issue with a door lock and screens, but the management staff responded quickly to our concerns.

More importantly, the bedrooms and linens were clean. The kitchen was large enough to accomodate several people at once, and the two refrigerators are a major plus.

The most attractive attribute for this cottage is LOCATION! The Back River Beach is just steps off of the porch. The river is kid friendly without the rough surf. There is plenty of beach at high tide.

The view from the upstairs porch is spectacular at sunset. Little Tybee Island also offers a beautful view just to the South of Tybee.

I would highly recommend this property to any family or group of adults looking to escape for a week of relaxation.

Fun Spot

Review submitted: November 3, 2011   Date of arrival: October 30, 2011

The house was old and very charming and comfortable. The house was on the bay and very safe for children and older swimmers that don't want the excitement of the large waves. But, the ocean was a short walk away for the more adventursome in our group.

It's nearness to Savannah was great. The bike path was nice.

Can't wait to go back!!!

Review submitted: December 14, 2009   Date of arrival: April 18, 2009

This place was a pleasure to experience. The location on the beach could not have been better. We had 5 kids in our party and there was plenty of space for everyone. The location on the Back River was great. No huge waves for the little ones and it felt almost like you had a private beach. The activity and crowds on the main Tybee beach did not impose on us one bit. Exploring the huge sand bar at low tide was like it's own little nature excursion. The sunsets were a pure attraction each and every night during our time here. The house itself was fine. It had it's share of creaks and moans but that is to be expected in an old house. We would return here in a heartbeat, in fact, we are.
