Interaction with Guests
We will respond right away, especially if you text or call.
Our Bungalow is on the quiet side of the island known as the "North side". It is only 1 .5 miles from the main drag "Tybrisa Street", the peir, restaurants, pubs. Remember the North side of Tybee also has its own lure, in that the beaches are more serene, far the hustle & bustle and is a good location for relaxing far from the crowd.
You can practically walk anywhere on Tybee, but other options are renting bikes (there are bike rentals right down the street), renting a golf cart, or just taking the golf cart taxis.
Parking Hints and Tips: Pay-for-parking is almost everywhere (you private driveway is free of course). Remember, your parking slip can move w/ you around the island.
Downtown Savannah is less than a 20 minute drive. Guests should spend at least one day in the historic district enjoying river street and all the attractions.
Tybee also has a shuttle that will bring you back and forth between downtown Savannah and Tybee. The shuttle departs from the Savannah Visitor Center. The cost is $5 per person each way. The operating times are Friday, Saturday & Sunday, departing at 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 5pm. (Last daily trip is return service departing from Tybee only).
If you need more details, take a peek at the Savannah Visitor Website. Also, I suggest calling a day or two ahead just to ensure the Shuttle is going to be there when you arrive because sometimes they change their hours depending on the season.
Other Things to Note

I wish I had people like Gina working for me! she is on top of everything, had personal notes throughout the rental. her and her husbands phone number listed along with location of flash lights, fire extinguishers and extra batteries. she had a listing of DVD's and maps of the local area. This is a small rental! but if you are here to enjoy the beach it is the perfect location only a 1 mile drive to the north beach and a 4 minute walk to 80E gastropub (awesome food). this was lots of fun.
We had a great time staying at Gina's place! It had everything we needed and was clean and comfortable. We especially appreciated how close it was to the beach and that she had even provided us with chairs, beach towels and an umbrella.
We really liked this rustic beach apartment. Being a lower level place it stayed cool enough that we didn't even run the air conditioner. It's super convenient to all the Tybee Island attractions. Only a 10 minute walk to the beach. It's furnished with any kitchen stuff you might need, including an espresso maker. The hosts had really great communication preparing us for our visit. Free WiFi & restaurant guides were a plus. Comfy bed & towels included.
Gina made us feel incredibly welcome. She let us know as soon as the house was ready for check in and bought us an umbrella to fight the heat on the beach. She checked in with us to see if we needed anything with out being overbearing. The Bungalow is precious. It's the perfect size for a single person or a couple just looking to spend quality time at the beach or around on the island. We will be looking for this house again next time we visit Tybee.
The host canceled this reservation 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Gina's place is great for relaxing on Tybee. It's a good size for two, and the bungalow had everything we needed. There is a cute little patio for enjoying coffee in the morning, a well-equipped kitchen (small - fridge is hotel-sized, so don't go buying a week's worth of groceries), the water pressure in the shower is fantastic, and everything felt very clean. It's a 15-minute walk to the beach. Places like this are why we do airbnb - this is a truly unique, off-the-beaten-path place to stay with a lot of character and very friendly hosts. Gina and her husband have clearly thought about the best way to use this space, and they have done everything to make this a fun, live-able apartment.
A couple things to keep in mind - this is sub-tropical Georgia, so there are some bugs. We ran across a few palmetto bugs and lots of mosquitoes. This is no fault of the house or the host, just a fact of life in this type of setting and something to be aware of. Gina made it clear that they regularly have the place treated. The bed is another thing - I think it's a double or a full, our feet hung off the bottom. The mattress is a little hard, too, and we were a bit stiff from it. But again - beach house! Getting a little rustic is part of it. Bring your bug spray.
I would not hesitate to recommend this listing to anyone looking for a relaxing beach stay on the north side of Tybee. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and felt very at home.
About the Host, Gina
My name is Gina and I am from California. My husband Greg is from Baltimore, Maryland. I am a children's therapist and my husband is a middle school teacher. We manage the rental together. I moved to Savannah GA, (Tybee Island) 8 years ago for college. I ended up meeting my husband, fell in love... and the island of course! Tybee Island is perfect for fishing, kayaking and just hanging out at the beach,pubs and restaurants. I enjoy living near the marsh and beach. Plus downtown Savannah (historic district) is only a 20 minute drive. We are happy to share this sweet little place with you. It is so cute and fun. Also, since we live on the island we can take care of any last minute needs quickly. For example, if you have any special requests (like needing tools, a sewing kit, extra linens, tooth brush, etc). We can always drop things off at your doorstep. I'm quick with response time, especially if you text me.
