This fully renovated home is a Garden Oasis, on Horsepen Creek, with a large fixed dock over the water for entertaining and floating dock for launching kayaks or getting close to nature. Fully furnished with a balance of new and antique furniture, multiple large living areas, a fenced yard with patio, furnished screened in porch, boat house and outdoor shower. The 5 bedrooms and 2 baths give this home plenty of room to spread out, relax and enjoy the sunsets over the water.
Centrally located on the island, with its gardens, large trees and landscaping, this home is a quiet nature retreat. It is a 10-15 minute walk down one residential street to the beach. The gardens start at the street with large mature trees, table and benches to greet your friends for coffee in the mornings. There is a lighted parking area for up to 4 cars directly in front of the house for easy access. The front entry opens to that comfortably furnished living room. Off the living room is a guest bedroom including a bunk bed with fold down double futon on bottom and a twin on top. There is a laundry room off this bedroom with a full-sized washer and dryer.
The kitchen is updated with granite counters, stainless appliances, dining table for 8, island seating for 3, and a breakfast table for 4. Behind the kitchen is another large living space which offers a 50in flat screen TV with surround sound, comfortable lounge seating, queen sleeper sofa, and a wall of windows looking out on the screened-in porch and courtyard. Off of this room is the true master bedroom of the home, offering a king bed, seating, TV, ceiling fan, beautiful views of the courtyard and an attached bath, which is also accessible from the hall.
Down the hall from the main entry you will find two guest bedrooms both furnished with queen beds and another full kitchen and bath. There is an additional king master suite including a door out to a "hidden" deck with swing and gated access to the courtyard.
The outdoor spaces are an added bonus! The house sits back from the street and away from traffic creating a quiet oasis. The home includes a nicely furnished screened porch, open courtyard, large patio, outdoor shower, large deck over the water, floating dock and a furnished "boat house". The boat house is a great additional living space with seating, Ping Pong table, sink with running water, window AC, ceiling fan, small mini fridge and more. The dock is perfect for entertaining, fishing, birdwatching and enjoying the beautiful sunsets. The 10X16 floating dock can be used to moor your boat or launch kayaks.

"Room to spread out - perfect for larger families"

Such a relaxing and blissful vacation from start to finish! Tybee Vacation Rentals is so easy to work with & accommodated all of our needs - including our dogs. The house was wonderful - spacious, with lots of rooms for the kids to hang out in & great gathering space for family meals, too; another bathroom would've been great, but we were able to make it work with only 2. The kids loved the outdoor space & ping pong table in the boathouse. We really enjoyed the screened porch in the evenings. It was not really walking distance for day trips to the beach (if you carry as much stuff as we do) but its never a big deal to drive there, and gave us a good excuse to head to a different part of Tybee everyday. The marshes are very quiet & peaceful. Having neighbors stay in the Captains Quarters next door wasn't ideal, but they were very nice & never complained about our noise. Next year, we'll probably try to rent both places & bring along another family. We'd most definitely stay here again!
