About the Owner

We are comprised of three sisters, Susan, Karen and Renee, and our respective families. Our parents rented a home at Tybee every summer and we grew up surfing the waves, strolling the beaches and crabbing on the back river. In 2005, we got together and decided to purchase a beach house of our own. We named the LLC, Charlie's Dream, after our father who had passed away years earlier but had longed to own his own piece of Tybee. Our dream with Yellowfin, has always been to enjoy wonderful family times there but to also open it up to other families so they could make there own special Tybee memories. Our grandmother lived on Tybee when the only access was by train or boat. Our grandfather was actually stationed at Fort Screven on Tybee's North end decades ago. Susan's daughter, Jennifer, was married on the beach the summer of 2001 and Renee's husband proposed to her in the one spot he knew meant more than any other...Tybee Island. It has been a magical place for us for generations and we hope at our beach home, Yellowfin, you can capture some of that same magic with your family!

Another great stay

  • 5 of 5

Our only problem with the house this summer is that we were only able to stay a week this year. Yellowfin is just a great place to stay. Renee and her family bend over backwards to accommodate. Nuff said. Hope to make it out for a third year in a row next summer but for two weeks again.

Very good location with plenty of room for a large family

  • 4 of 5

Downstairs has 3 BR (all with full beds and one with additional bunk beds) and 2 BA, kitchen area with full size fridge, a small table and chairs and an air hockey table.

Upstairs has 3 BR (2 with king and one with full) and 3 BA. This level also has the main kitchen, family and dining room. There is a huge screen porch off of the dining room with 2 tables and 10 chairs for extra seating during meal time plus a love seat and 4 more chairs for conversation time or relaxing. There are steps from the porch leading to a small grassy area where the gas grill is located. The grill had plenty of space for grilling burgers and dogs for my group of 12 adults.

Underneath the screen porch is a storage area that has chairs, an umbrella, beach toys and other items to use and enjoy on the beach. There are also multiple carts for hauling your gear to and from the beach.

The beach access is a short 2 blocks away.

The house was clean, except for the dust on some of the ceiling fans in some of the bedrooms. My wife and I cleaned them up a little when we first arrived.

My bed was very comfortable and I heard no complaints from other family members regarding their beds.

The owner was very easy to work with and was very prompt in responding to any and all communications.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure what house the previous reviewer stayed in, but this place is wonderful! My family is here while renovations are being done on our house, and I wish I had the same response from my contractors as he apparently did from the owners. Since there are FIVE bathrooms, one shower head shouldn't have ruined the trip. 😊 There is so much room in this lovely home. I am sitting on the screened porch as I write this, and we have the most wonderful breeze. It is within walking distance to EVERYTHING and, at the end of the day, has a beautiful jacuzzi tub to relax in. They also provide beach towels and beach chairs which is awesome. I, for one, would love to come back & bring more family & friends with me!

Great Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We just love going to Yellow Fin. If feels like our girls have grown up here and now they take the downstairs apartment. It's unbelievable how spacious the upstairs area is; large table to seat 6, counter seating for 4 and many coaches and overstuffed chairs. The jet tube in the Master is very nice and each room has its own theme, but the best, is the screened in porch! It's also very nice to not have to pack any beach equipment as they have it all! We look forward to going back again next year!

Great stay. Great place.

  • 5 of 5

Wow. We had a great stay. Four families with a total of 18 people. We had a couple of maintenance issues while we were there but the owners were very attentive and did their very best to address them as soon as we brought them to their attention. In our case a previous renter flushed a Swifter sheet down the toilet and stopped up the whole house. Hardly the owner's fault and addressed as quickly as possible. In regard to amenities. This house cannot be beat for a relaxing vacation and beach activities. Tons of beach chairs, boogie boards and other beach paraphernalia. We have stayed at several other houses on Tybee and none had anything close. Screened in porch has fans that make it very comfortable for relaxing anytime of the day. We found the kitchen to be well stocked and amenable to cooking for 18 people. We needed an even bigger pot for a lowland boil and the owners lent us theirs (remember we were cooking for 18). We stayed for two weeks this past July and are looking forward to staying there again.

Amenities

From the Owner

When we gather as a family at Yellowfin, we love to cook family meals. The kitchen is huge and one of my favorite things in the house is the large green tile counter in the kitchen/dining area. It is our buffet table for meals and it is where the kids eat their breakfast. Like the kitchens at home, it tends to be the room we gather in. We also love to gather at the tables on the screened porch and play card games and board games or just catch up with one another. The children and their friends like to stow away in the downstairs surf shack and Lighthouse room as far away from the adults as they can get. It is always fun to see the pictures they take when nobody is looking. If the lemon tree has fruit, they like to pick lemons, make lemonade and set up a stand. When the children were a little younger, it was nice having the fenced yard. Sometimes they didn't want to be inside and they don't want to spend every moment at the beach. In the fenced side yard they have played frisbee, tag, volleyball and more. Renee's girls are now 13 and 15 and will spend plenty of time at the beach but also love walking down Tybrisa and going in the shops. We always go to AJ's Dockside on the back river at least once while we stay and the kids insist we get ice cream at Tradewinds. You have to try their Savannah Mud! We enjoy riding bikes on the island, visiting the lighthouse and feeding the alligators at the Crab Shack. If the adults are wanting a special dinner out, I would have to suggest the Sundae Cafe. It is actually my favorite restaurant on Tybee or Savannah! The food is delicious every single time.
