This neighborhood is the tucked away in a secluded woodsy area. The area is quiet, private and very safe. The bungalow is on the Northside of the island. It is approx. one mile from the main drag "Tybrisa Street". You'll find that Tybrisa Street has all he attractions: the main Pier (great for fishing) loads of restaurants, pubs and beach shops. Remember, the North side also has its own charm… in that the beaches are generally less crowded, and the restaurants, shops and pubs on the Northside beautifully bring to light the beating heart of Tybee.
Our personal favorite local hang out is “Huca-Poos" (bar, pizza parlor). Try walking to ‘Huca-Poos' there for a lovely experience. Huca-Poos is only ½ mile from the bungalow. This hidden gem is the locals best kept secret. It has a laid-back atmosphere, very hippy/boho, good food and cocktails that won't break your budget. Amazing prices such as $2 tall-boy PBRs, $3 giant slice of pizza, etc. You'll definitely get bang-for-your-buck here, and the service is consistently friendly, fast and efficient. They have a relaxing ambiance with quirky fun décor. Plus, they have live bands on the weekends. Huca-Poos fits all types of folks: singles, couples, families and children.
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.
This bungalow is 10-15 mins walk to the beach (depending on which rout you take). The guest binder includes a map that will guide you to the most direct paths to the beach. If you don't feel like walking, you can always call one the golf cart taxis to take you there.
The Grocery store IGA is only 1 mile past the bungalow. It is on HWY 80, on the right side of the road.
Downtown Savannah is less than a 20 minute drive. Guests should spend at least one day in the historic district enjoying riverstreet 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.

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) 10 years ago for college. I ended up meeting my husband, fell in love... and with 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 contact me via airbnb or text.
