Interaction with Guests
My phone number is (phone number hidden) and texting is the best way to reach me. Beach chairs & carts for beach transport are provided.
The neighborhood is quiet but close enough to the action that it can be quite entertaining. At the end of a long day it's very tranquil and you can get away from the bustle of the beach and relax on the upper deck or swing yourself to sleep in the porch swing.

Other Things to Note
One towel, bath cloth, & hand towel is provided per guest. If you think you'll need additional ones please plan to bring extras for yourself. One roll of paper towels and 2 rolls of toilet tissue is provided. Again, if you think you'll need more please plan to bring it with you. Dishwashing liquid & dishwasher detergent is provided as well as shampoo & conditioner. The central A/C unit will only cool to a certain temp (there's nothing wrong with it it's just logisitcs) & if you turn the thermostat down to 60 it will freeze the unit up.70's usually keeps it from freezing up & being out of commission.
No smoking is allowed in the house or on the screen porch. Anywhere outside of that is OK. There are houses around you so please be considerate of late night or loud noises. Also, please be considerate of the property & contents.
This home was the location for my friend's bachelorette party and it was absolutely perfect. Gloria was very personable and answered any questions we had in a timely fashion. The location is perfect, with shops and food directly across the street. The home's easy access to the beach and proximity to what both Tybee and Savannah had to offer made it exactly what we needed for our weekend getaway. Would definitely rent this again. :)
Tybee Island is a great place to stay! Gloria was an exellent host and very helpfull when we had questions, she was not around but she answerd us quicly on mail og sms. The house was cosy, but it was to small for a family of six people. If our yongest had been older we would not have bed for everyone (she sleept in a bed that was not at standard size). But we are happy with the place and I hope we will return some day. Thanks Gloria for hosting us, we loved it.
This place was almost exactly like it was presented on Air B&B. Great location- just a short stroll to the beach. Shaded parking. Glorious outdoor shower. Simple and quaint. Lots of little extras. Our only problem was the air conditioner. There's a small wall unit in the living room area but it does not sufficiently cool the place. The bedroom was extremely hot with no windows or air flow and the living room area didn't get below mid-80s. In Georgia, June weather this was unacceptable. By the time we could reach Gloria, our kids were already in bed asleep. She was quick to solve the problem and offered us a refund for the first night and let us move to her other larger unit next door. We gladly took her up on it but weren't able to relocate until the following day, with the kids being asleep and with a babysitter.
The other unit was much nicer and had sufficient AC. We wouldn't have originally picked it because the living area is in an upstairs loft with a one-slat railing that our toddler and baby could easily fall through. But at this point it was too late to relocate and we were just happy to have a better place with AC, even if we had to police the kids from going upstairs. The larger unit is perfect for a family with older children- it's way too hazardous for small children. All in all- the original place would be just fine if the air conditioner was fixed or replaced, or the central heat and air was activated. (there are vents but nothing comes out of them)
It was a GREAT place! We really enjoyed the screen porch and the upper deck. It was very clean and everything was just as described. It was right down from the beach and very convenient to everything Tybee! We look forward to coming back again!
Gloria gave us all the details and information we needed to get in. There was a lockbox containing the key and it was all very easy. Gloria was very responsive, even mailing us our phone cords, which we inadvertently left behind. We loved Tybee and we were indeed within a short walk to the beach. Everything inside the home was ready for guests just as described, very clean and homey. We particularly enjoyed the first floor deck and spent a lot of time out there. It is a small home, but it was just the two of us and perfect for our mini-vacation.
This place was almost perfect! Short walk to the beach, bars and bring your bike to take a ride to the pier and stores. Literally the only complaint was the flies. Every morning we woke up to 5-10 new dead flies and 5-10 which were still alive they were in every room but mostly the kitchen. The place is nicely decorated and would be comfortable to fit 4 adults. One of the showers leaked so we only used the larger shower. BBQ outside was clean and ready to use just bring your utensils to grill! Gloria is a great host who answered all questions quickly. I will be returning!
Extremely charming little house withing walking distance to the beach!! Thanks Gloria :)
