This is our second time renting from Gloria, and this time it was very last minute. Her house is a great location, but does require a car or bikes in order to get to the beach. Please be aware, the tree top quarters are VERY small. It served our purpose and would be good for no more than two people. We'll rent from Gloria again :)
$70 per night was too much for this attic space--even at beach prices. There is a motel on Tybee that rents rooms for $70 per night. The space is accessed by a spiral staircase that is barely held together by screws, and the base of the staircase is directly on the rotten wood of the porch with no support underneath. The room is as pictured, but smells terrible. When we arrived it smelled strongly of sewage--the room had 5 or 6 air fresheners in it that just made it smell like chemicals and sewage. The downstairs tenants (permanent) apparently smoke, and the room also smelled like smoke. The floor under the toilet is rotten and spongy. The kitchenette is on the same electrical fuse as the downstairs unit, and you can only use one appliance at a time or you'll blow the fuse. Although the listing says there is wifi, it was a very weak signal and we did not even have a signal a couple of the nights we were there.
Good things about the room were the AC worked well, the kitchenette is handy (but by no means can you cook meals easily), the location is about 5 mins from the beach, the outdoor shower is convenient, and you're very close to shops. There is a deck you can hang out on, but the downstairs tenants' AC vents out there so there is hot smoky air pouring out, as well as a lot of mosquitoes and road noise. The grill is a tiny $30 table top variety, so don't plan on grilling out anything big.
Overall we had a fine time, and if we had paid 40 or 50 a night, would have been well satisfied.
Our stay at the Treehouse turned out to be just right for me and my boyfriend. The place is small, but It uses the space well. The bed was comfy (full sized) and the kitchenette was stocked with lots of useful things like plates, bowls, pans, and tin foil. There was also a Brita water pitcher in the fridge which was a nice surprise becasue the tap water is not good. Gloria even provided microwave popcorn for guests. I saw that people complained about the staircase, which does make bringing large bags up and down more difficult, but I found the spiral staircase added a nice charm to the place. I also really liked the deck below to sit out on. Another plus was the air conditioner that worked really well, and the ceiling fan. I would recommend this place to a couple or close friends because of the size. It's nice for two people who are close and comfortable with each other, because you're sharing every inch of the place and often at the same time. The neighborhood is quite and seems super safe (the whole island feels that way) and it's very close to the beach and the lighthouse. We took walks to watch the sunset and would wait for the moon to come up over the ocean as we walked back. Tybee was an amazing place for a vacation, and the Treehouse is perfect if you don't plan on spending your vacation inside. For the rate that we stayed, we would stay again in the future.
Need some improvements and updates, slightly overpriced and not quite what we were expecting at all, on the upside the neighbor was incredibly kind and helpful.
This was literally an attic. The bed only sleeps one person comfortably (I slept on the floor so my 61 yr. old mother could sleep in the small bed). The steel spiral stairs leading up to the room are in my opinion unsafe. It did not seem to be secure. After coming back to the room one afternoon we discovered we had no parking space because even tho they are "assigned parking spaces" someone parked in our space. I messaged Gloria about this problem and received no response. The ONLY positive thing I can say about this experience is the guy that lives below this room is EXTREMELY nice and has great advice about where to eat while in Tybee. If you decide to stay here....I suggest you pact light because getting your stuff up the stairs will be a difficult task for anyone.
Where to start. It's a great location but not a great place. If you are strictly looking for a place to sleep then it might be worth it. We chose this place because we were traveling with a dog. This place stinks of cigarette smoke even though you can't smoke in it. It is an attic space with a bed and microwave thrown in it, my apartment bedroom is bigger. We had a terrible stay. Too small for two of us, everything we brought smells like cigarette smoke, difficult stairs to carry anything up, located near a busy road, uncomfortable bed, dirty dishes, bugs inside. We payed for 3 nights and cut our trip early and only stayed 1 night. Very disappointed with it and really questioning staying at another place through this site
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights while visiting Tybee Island. As far as pros go, the A/C in the room was super strong and the bed was comfortable enough. And the apartment really is less than 10 minutes from a great beach (that is fairly empty on weekdays).
To be honest, we were not very impressed overall. This room is very small and feels cramped due to the ceiling tilting inward (this may have been an attic remade into a studio apartment), and there is little sunlight entering the room.
The bathroom has no real door but only a thin closet door with shutters--not very private. The bathroom also smelled strongly of cigarettes (perhaps from downstairs?). The spiral staircase leading up to the apartment is shaky and, while I was never scared of it actually collapsing, it was not a comfortable experience to walk up and down it each day.
The deck and the area in front of house (just below the deck) were cluttered with random objects, making the house look unclean. The deck chairs would need to be cleaned off before sitting in them.
The dishes in the kitchen were not clean and we had to wash things before using them. The house is also right on the corner of a busy road, so you are always hearing traffic.
Do not confuse the treehouse listing with the listing for the other apartment in this house--that one looks much nicer and has good reviews. We actually thought that was the one we were booking and must have clicked the wrong one somewhere along the way while booking. If you are not picky about the details listed above, this rental is in a good location near the beach.
