Are you looking for Tybee vacation homes to host the whole family or a large group? Then you’re in luck, because Southern Belle offers a number of vacation rentals Tybee Island that can host over six people. Our Tybee beach vacation rentals give you the best of both worlds by being only a short drive from downtown Savannah while also giving you the relaxing and peaceful environment of an isolated island. Plus, with Tybee vacation homes, you get far more privacy, flexibility and convenience than you would get in a hotel.
One such vacation rentals Tybee Island is the Benton Cottage property located off 13th Street, which puts it only about 100 feet from the beach. This property can sleep up to nine guests with four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms feature large beds with a king and queen respectively. The other two bedrooms host multiple single beds, one with two and the other with three. This makes it a good setup for an extended family or even two families. Our Tybee beach vacation rentals always come with the conveniences you’d expect from a hotel, plus the additional amenities of a single-family house. That means you get full kitchens, cable TV, Wi-Fi, private parking and much more. The 13th Street location puts you close to both Mid Beach and South Beach areas and right in the neighborhood of lots of services such as restaurants and grocery. The Tybee Island Marine Science Center is only about 1,000 feet away.
Many of our Tybee vacation homes feature great outdoor seating areas, but Benton Cottage definitely kicks it up another notch with an expansive screened porch in the front. It’s covered and has plenty of seating for everyone. Inside, you’ll find a meticulously decorated house with fun nautical accents. The kitchen is massive with an island cooking area, double sinks, lots of counter space and provided appliances like a coffee pot, stand mixer and more. Bedrooms are amazing and comfortable with wood paneling, flat-screen TVs and additional furniture. If the huge screened porch out front isn’t enough outdoor seating, below the house is yet another area and this is also where the laundry machines are located.
One of the best things about staying on Tybee is that you get to fully enjoy the island atmosphere while at the same time having easy access to activities and attractions. There’s no doubt that the Tybee beaches are one of the top draws for staying here. This property on the east side of the island means you’ll be closest to the Atlantic beaches. If you prefer fresh water river beaches, you’ll find those on the other end of the island to the west. Tybee Island is less than three square miles in area so exploring it and getting around is very easy. Head north to visit Tybee’s top landmark in the Tybee Lighthouse and Museum. While up here, you can also visit North Beach and the bird watching area nearby. This area offers great views of the shipping lanes going into the Savannah River from the Atlantic.
The south end of the island is considered the most touristy, but you’ll still want to visit the many delicious restaurants down here as well as checking out the Marine Science Center and the Tybee Pier and Pavilion. If you have any fishing buffs or watersport fans in your group, then there’s plenty of opportunities to do both around the island. Charters and equipment rentals are both available. Dolphin watching tours are also popular.
Many guests stay on Tybee with the intent to visit Savannah. The heart of the downtown is only about half an hour away from Tybee on Highway 80. Once there, most of the city is quite walkable and you can explore the south end of the city such as Forsyth Park and the surrounding area, then head north and explore River Street. Numerous tours are offered in Savannah and one of the most popular is the Old Town Trolley Tour. Not only does it offer a very comprehensive experience, but you can even get on and off at any of its stops. Other popular tours are the horse and buggy tour, riverboat cruise and ghost tours.
