Tybee Island is a charming and a little bit quirky beach retreat about half an hour to the east of downtown Savannah. It’s often called Savannah’s beach as it borders both the Atlantic Ocean and the Savannah River. Tybee Island is considered a barrier island and it only covers about 2.7 square miles. You can access it by taking Highway 80 east out of Savannah. Once here, you’ll find peaceful stretches of marshland, stretches of smooth sand and quiet neighborhoods never far from the beach. Renting Tybee vacation homes from Southern Belle is the best way to experience this charming Southern island retreat up close and personal.
With Southern Belle’s vacation rentals Tybee Island, you get a winning combination of comfortable and convenient amenities along with the fantastic room and privacy of a full-size house. Our selection of Tybee beach vacation rentals is hard to beat as we have properties in various locations from the north end to the south end, from inland to right by the water. Not only that, but we have a variety of sizes as well, whether you need a cozy cottage or a roomy retreat. One of our north end vacation rentals Tybee Island is the General George Marshall rental. You’ll find it on the boulevard of the same name just east of Pulaski Street and practically right next door to the postcard-perfect Tybee Island Light Station and Museum. This also means that it’s only about 500 feet from the North Beach area.
Like all of our Tybee beach vacation rentals, this property features a number of attractive amenities. Five bedrooms and sleeping arrangements for up to 13 guests means that this is a property for a nice sized group or two families. One of the bedrooms offers a king bed, while another offers a queen. The rest of the bedrooms have multiple beds. One of the bedrooms even has two bunk beds, which makes it a great kids room. Three full bathrooms include a master bath and then two full baths. You’ll find both a full kitchen and a breakfast room with wet bar. There’s plenty of outdoor seating and a yard as well. Off-street parking is available.
Our Tybee vacation homes are always fully and carefully decorated and furnished. Inside of this one you’ll find a rejuvenating white and bright theme that reflects the calm island environment. Wood floors have area rugs in just the right places. Seating is plentiful, whether in the expansive living room or full dining room. There’s also a little breakfast/snack area right near the doors to the outside porch. Ceiling fans and flat-screen TVs are throughout. The bedrooms aren’t just boring rooms with beds, but always have extra furniture such as dressers, nightstands and even extra seating. The bedrooms with multiple beds are well-separated so everyone has a little space of their own. Outside porches are great things to have in a place like Tybee. You want to be able to enjoy the ocean breezes and surrounding scenery. This one doesn’t disappoint with a full, luxurious seating area featuring a roof with ceiling fan, wicker seating and light fixtures. It’s almost like a part of the inside, except outside. Enjoy the views and the beautiful lighthouse standing nearby.
Staying in Tybee vacation homes means that you’re only about half an hour from Savannah, but there’s still a lot to do on the island itself. It’s a great place for nature lovers. You can rent water equipment and head out kayaking, sailing or on a jet ski. Bike rentals are available if you want to tour the beaches this way. This property’s proximity to North Beach means you’ll be right next door to some prime bird watching opportunities. Considering the proximity, one of your first stops will probably be the Tybee Lighthouse. All the original outbuildings are intact and the museum will increase your knowledge about the history of the island. Don’t forget to trek to the top and take a picture of the panoramic view.
If you’re a foodie, you’ll love the coastal cuisine offered on the island. Down near South Beach you’ll find Spanky’s and Fannie’s, which are both great places to get some locally caught seafood. Tybee chefs love to show off seasonal and local fare. Tybee has its share of fun events too, whether it’s live music and fireworks at the Labor Day Beach Bash or some hearty fun at the Pirate Fest in October. Tybee Island knows how to have a good time.
Naturally if you’re staying on Tybee, you’ll likely be headed to Savannah at least for a day trip. While you’re there, make sure to check out Forsyth Park and River Street. As one of the most haunted cities in America, you might want to summon all your bravery to take one of the fantastically spooky ghost tours offered. Other can’t miss places include:
– City Market
– Davenport House Museum
– The Lady and Sons Restaurant
– Tricentennial Park
– Telfair Academy
