With its abundance of living space both inside and outside, Tybee Tonic is the ideal vacation home for family and friends. Comfortably furnished throughout with antique accents and modern touches, this home is sure to please.
Unwind from a day of soaking in Tybee’s beautiful rays in one of the home’s many sitting areas. Relax in the main living room or the den, both of which are furnished with plush sofas and large flat screened TVs. For extra sleeping space the den is equipped with a full size sleeper sofa. Tybee Tonic’s open floor plan effortlessly flows from the living room to the dining area with a large table that will seat 8, to the beautifully renovated kitchen large enough for cooks to share. Downstairs you will also find 2 bedrooms and 1 full bathroom. The first bedroom is furnished with a double bed and the second bedroom furnished with 2 double beds.
Upstairs you will find 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom boasts a large king bed, TV and direct access to the furnished screened in balcony.

The third upstairs bedroom is perfect for the kids with a twin bunk bed and down the hall you will find a second full bathroom. The home includes a washer and dryer and complimentary high speed WIFI.
The true treasures of this home are the outdoor spaces. Two furnished screened porches flank the home and are highlighted by towering oak trees and precise landscaping. Cool off by taking a dip in Tybee Tonic’s private pool or rinse off the sand from a day at the beach in one of the 2 outdoor showers. The covered floating dock on the tidal creek (7ft water at high tide, mud at low) is only 30 yard from the house and is the perfect place to fish, crab or launch a kayak. End the night by sipping a glass of wine and indulging in conversation on the fenced in patio.
Tybee Tonic is located mid-island near the marsh on Horsepen Creek and only 3 blocks to the back river where you can watch beautiful sunsets, go fishing or relax on the beach. If larger waves are what you desire the main beach is just a straight 6 block (1/4 mile) stroll down a quiet residential street. No matter what brings you to Tybee, this home is surely the ‘tonic’ to heal the ailments of everyday life.

We had a great stay. This home is perfect for a large family. Big kitchen and lots of beds. The pool is really nice for days you just don't feel like a sand mess from the beach. The only disappointment we had was fishing off the dock. The water level was too low most of our stay and we didn't catch anything like we did in the bigger channels at our rental last year. We rented a cart for the week to go back and forth to beach or in to town for supplies. Had a great time though it rained most of stay and was cold. Lots of Tv's in the house too! Would definitely rent again.

We arrived Saturday & was pleasantly surprised the house was as described and in pics. The house was very comfortable and clean & the pool was great! I was very excited that there were beach chairs available to use when we went to the beach! :)
We were all also very happy the 1st floor was so easily accessible for my 84 year old grandma. Everything she needed was on the first floor except the bed in her room was so high and she is short so we had to find her something to use as a step stool.
We liked the location being so close to aj's but if you want to go to the beach you'll have a bit of a walk...if you cant walk be sure to get a parking pass or bikes.
The only unfortunate thing about our trip was on Friday the 16th, my husband and my 10th wedding anniversary, there was really bad rain and the house flooded. It was so bad that no one could come with a shop vac or extra towels so we had to use what we had, broom and dust pan to get out as much water as possible.
Thanks for helping our family build some great memories.

Great house--kids loved the pool, adults loved the Kitchen/DR/LR. Great location--easy to get to the beach, backwaters, all over Tybee, and into Savannah. And all of you were so wonderful and easy to work with. Thanks for helping our family build some great memories!

We have always stayed beach front but this year we needed more space for our friends that were down for our wedding and this house was just perfect! We were within walking distance of the beach, Aj's Dockside and much more! The pool was nice to have for at night and the space inside was amazing. The first level is so open within the kitchen, dining and living room.
We had a great time in a fabulous home with a pool. Tybee Island is the place to enjoy the beach and a good time with family and friends. I appreciate the good service and helpful personnel. Only wish we could have stayed longer!!

Tybee Tonic was 6 blocks to the beach, on a private road--across the street from the marsh, and down the road from the best restaurant on the island, A.J.'s. We traveled with a large group; 6 adults and 6 kids. It was nearly impossible to get the kids out of the pool. Pool is smaller than the pictures, but served the purpose of entertaining the children. I liked all of the places around the house to get away. There were two living rooms on the main level and a screened-in porch. Also, there was a screened in porch adjoining the master bedroom--porch furniture needs replacing. The large bugs did get in the house pretty regularly by day 3--I am not afraid of bugs; but it got really old. I used to live at the beach and this is really normal. I called the realty and they came and sprayed--the bugs did not come back for the remainder of our stay. The walk to the beach is not bad, I liked the safety and privacy that the house offered. The kids could ride bikes and scooters in the street right outside the house. I was not impressed by the dining at Tybee Island. Eat in and enjoy Tybee Tonic! One more thing, the bed in the guest room with the adjoining bathroom has a great bed. It was the first time I've traveled where I did not wake up feeling achy and sore.

we stayed in February and had a lovely weekend in this house. I's a great older house with lots of charm. The kitchen and sitting room were one big area and it was a great gathering place. Also, the screened in porch was very nice. i would stay here again!!

The house is nicely decorated, with plenty of room for a group. The great room with kitchen & fireplace was perfect. We enjoyed cooking together & gathering at the huge farmhouse table. We had a group of 9 adults & were never crowded. The location was convenient. The only recommendation I would make to the property managers is to tell the cleaning crew to wipe baseboards & dust more thoroughly. Also, the silverware in the drawers was not clean. This was the 3rd time we have rented through Tybee Vacation Rentals & the first time the house wasn't immaculate. The house itself, however, was very nice. We would rent it again.

We really loved our stay in Tybee Tonic. The bugs were acceptable, especially since you warned us in advance in the contract. My only suggestion is that you clean the pool for those who stay more than a few days. By the end of our week there the pool was pretty nasty. We used it alot and it was so handy. If we came to Tybee again, I would definitely use your services and rent Tybee Tonic. Thanks for a very enjoyable family vacation! We made a lot of great memories there.

We loved Tybee Tonic! This was our extended family's first beach vacation in more than 11 years. The kitchen was amazing to cook in...had everything 2 cooks needed. The eating area was incredible for our troops. The kids- ages 3-19 loved to come back to the pool after a day at the beach- they would swim while we would cook. The younger kids loved the outdoor showers. The grill was wonderful- screened porch amazing! Sunsets on the dock beyond incredible. No one wanted to leave. I would say the only drawback to Tybee Tonic is the bathrooms- there is plenty of living space in the house, the laundry area was great for our crew but the bathrooms were small and lacking a bit for the rest of the house. We had the most wonderful stay at Tybee Tonic- many wonderful memories made- and isn't that what vacation, especially with family, is all about!?!
A quaint house on a quaint island provided a relaxed vacation.

Tybee Tonic is a beautiful house. It took me back in time when life was slower and much less stressful. We enjoyed our stay so much. We loved the pool and large kitchen. We cooked a low country boil and had plenty of room for our large family to enjoy a great home cooked meal. Had a lot of fun riding bikes and exploring the island. Cannot wait to go back.
A most laidback experience unlike we have ever had
Left on 07/18/2011 for a stay in July 2011 | M. Lackey
Really the one thing that made the stay at Tybee most memorable for us was the room we had at the house. The pool in the backyard. Tv's in every room. The "great Room" kitchen/dining room/living room in one. The seclusion of the property. The biggest drawback had to be the bugs!!! Woke up with them, went to sleep with them. I'm sure that may be a norm for the area but it isn't for us. The beach area was great. Not use to all the drinking on the beach that went on but I guess they hide it better at Myrtle. Not sure if will come back or not. Paying over 600 dollars in taxes just for the room was a complete sticker shock. Again maybe the hide it better in Myrtle. Going back and forth to Savannah was a experience. Never went to Savannah the same way or returned. Completely enjoyed Savannah. Looked for coupons in Savannah for the differant things to do. Like buggy rides and tours starting in Tybee and going to Savannah. All in all we really had a good time. Thanks again.

I loved this house and the location on the marsh. The set up was beautiful, and everything was very clean. The large bedroom with the upstairs patio was perfect!! The kitchen was amazing and I love the decor. We had a fantastic week in Tybee, and staying at Tybee Tonic.
We will for sure be renting Tybee Tonic again in the future.

Comfortable and conveniently located
Left on 10/15/2009 for a stay in October 2009 | Mike and Cindy H.
Service: excellent. effortless. Upon arrival, we found the lower house A/C to be out of order, but a quick call to TVR the next morning and it was fixed a few hours later, much to our satisfaction.
Likability: high. The house was cozy and interestingly decorated. The floor plan was really well thought out.
Amenities: As kayakers, we found the outdoor showers to be very helpful in caring for our gear and keeping the home clean and free of sand. The dock was very nice at high water, but not useful at low tide (but you already know this). The pool was a bit chilly (it was October), but it felt good in the 90 degree heat (I think it was a record temp).
Location: Perfect. It was well away from the main roads to be quiet and private. It was near to the dock for a few sunsets; close enough to the beach for a short walk to a morning sunrise.
Tybee Island really is a great get-away.
Liked best: The great room.
Liked least: Insects in the pool and entrances to the house (cockroaches...but understandable: GA).
p.s. A squirrel was nesting in the upper screened porch (there was a juvenile squirrel present), chewed a hole in the trim facing the street, and may have at least two entrance holes. This should probably be checked.
p.p.s. We would like to be entered into any contest that awards a free return visit!!! Heck, we would most likely be a return visitor anyway!

Staying on Tybee Island at Tybee Tonic was a great way to end the summer. The island offers many great pastimes and amenities. The house was beautiful and very well appointed. The group of 8 had a great time and plans to return in the near future. It is definitely a recommended trip to anyone who likes sun, warm water and fun!
Great Weekend Getaway
Left on 05/27/2009 for a stay in May 2009 | Don Miers
Tybee Tonic was the perfect tonic for our getaway needs! The house is situated within walking distance of the beach and the downtown nightlife, yet far enough away for us to enjoy the quiet of the neighborhood. Also, the sunsets on the back river amongst the docks were spectacular! The house itself suited our needs for 10 adults and 2 kids. Plenty of room to move around, private sleeping quarters and yet, a big dining area for all to be in together at the same time. The private fenced in pool was a delight and the outdoor shower stalls a fun find!
Our 3 days holiday weekend ended too soon as we really enjoyed this house and Tybee itself.

Wonderful Week of Family
Left on 12/29/2008 for a stay in June 2008 | A FlipKey verified reviewer
We had all 12 members of our family together for a whole week and it was the best time ever! The house is lovely and well located. We were dismayed to have to vacuum up pet hair when we first arrived, since it is listed as "no pets", but, as we were told, the owners had visited shortly before we did and brought their pets along. We loved the pool and the dock area. And with the grill located nearby, we cooked most of our meals and enjoyed a swim. I hope we can take the family back to Tybee in June 09. We will definitely check the availability of Tybee Tonic if we do. Read more
