Upon entering this Tybee Island vacation rental, you’ll be greeted with an airy and bright interior with plenty of light from both windows and fixtures. The living room offers wood flooring, two sofas, a small dining area, balcony access and a large flatscreen TV. The kitchen takes up an open, yet small space right off the living room. It offers the perfect amount of counter space and modern appliances for all your cooking needs. The counter facing out into the living room can also double as an eating area and there are four bar stools available. The bedrooms are both well-appointed with nautical decor, ceiling fans and TVs. You’ll find the front balcony a comfortable place to spend a morning or evening. Four rustic wood chairs surround a tall bar table and the balcony is fully covered and even has a ceiling fan. Look out onto the surrounding neighborhood and enjoy the ocean breeze at any time of day. Whether you have a rental car or your own car, two private covered parking spaces will give you peace of mind.

South Beach Retreat is located on Butler Avenue, which puts it only about 500 feet from the nearest beach and not much further for a host of services. Check out popular beachfront restaurants in Fannies on the Beach or Spanky’s Beachside, or make your way over to the Tybee Beach Pier and Pavilion for some fishing. Just a little further north is the Tybee Island Marine Science Center. Check out the aquatic exhibits, learn about sea turtles or make a reservation for a beach or marsh trek around the island. If you head west, you’ll come across Tybee Creek and the Back River Fishing Pier. This side of Tybee Island mostly features freshwater beaches. If you head all the way north on the island, you’ll come across the picturesque Tybee Island Lighthouse. A climb to the 154 foot top and you can see a panoramic view of the island. Back down on the ground, don’t forget to explore the museum and the original outbuildings.
Unsurprisingly, Tybee is a great place to enjoy a variety of water activities. Whether you’re into fishing, water sports, dolphin watching or just wading, there’s something for you. You can also take charters out simply to enjoy being on the water.
Many guests come to Tybee and also take the short half hour drive over to Savannah to enjoy the historic downtown. Savannah’s downtown is extremely walkable and you may want to either explore on foot or take one of the many tours offered. One of the most detailed is the Old Town Trolley Tour. Two of the top destinations in Savannah’s downtown are the 30 acre Forsyth Park and also the long riverfront concourse of River Street, which is full of shopping and dining.
