Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Tybee Island - Coral House

4 BR, 3 BA sleeps 16 (10 in 5 beds; 6 in 3 sofabeds)

Less than 1 block to the beach --- wide white-sand beach.

What is unique about Tybee Island?

. Barrier island due east of historic Savannah

. Just 3-mile diameter, and half that is salt marsh

. Birthplace and home of a C-list actor; chosen home of an

A-list actor; nesting home of loggerhead sea turtles.

. Great dolphin viewing --- virtually guaranteed on the

north end of the island. Dolphin boat tours are always

available, but sitting on the north beach is just as

effective. We once watched a band of dolphins frolicking

with a delighted kayaker.

. Impressive pier that extends way, way out into the water.

Each end has a nice covered pavilion.

What is close to Coral House?: . The beach

. Across the street: 5 restaurants

1) McElwhee's Seafood,

2) Mexican

3) Sundae Cafe - a hole-in-the-wall, white-tablecloth, Gourmet

restaurant. Sundaes? Nah. (go figure) But The Sugar Shack has great ones.

4) The Sugar Shack - a decidedly downscale, inexpensive

place that serves a good breakfast, sandwiches, and hand-

dipped ice cream. Indoor or covered outdoor dining.

5) Pizza

The 2 Lighthouses: Two lighthouses less than 3 miles apart but so radically different in character. As you approach Tybee Island, you see the impressive Tybee Light in the distance. Tall, dark, and handsome with a white cumberbund. He was honored a couple of years ago when he got his own US postage stamp. ( In lighthouse circles that is akin to an Oscar.) But then as you cross the Lazaretto bridge onto Tybee Island, you look down to the left and blink. Is that a lighthouse in the water? Indeed it is. That's plucky little Cockspur Lighthouse. Weathered, plain white masonry. Not flashy at all, except ... At every high tide Cockspur stands in the ocean well off-shore. Only at low tide does the stony spur appear that supports the little lighthouse. A firm foundation after all.

Lost in the 40's/50's: So far the quaint shopping district near the pier has pretty much escaped the wrecking ball. Witness Arby's --- Tybee Island's only fast food restaurant. This is pretty much what Arby's looked like when they began in the early 60's. As for shopping, no Sak's here. We're talking beach shopping: T-shirts, souvenirs, Sno-Cones, umbrella drinks, seafood. But remember, for culture and serious shopping, there is colorful, historic Savannah, just 20-25 minutes away. Recommended reading: Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, an amusing look at Savannah's high- and low-life (about 2 years on the NY Times nonfiction best seller list).

Coral House is located about mid-beach between south beach (home of the pier and shopping) and north beach ( home of the majestic Tybee Light and the former Ft. Screven, now a museum).

Fantastic Girl Scout Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 12 Girl Scouts staying for a weekend of activities in Savannah and Tybee. This cottage was perfect! So cute, clean, and well furnished. We saved money by cooking meals: easily done with the 3 kitchens and plenty of supplies. This was the BEST location! Just 2 houses down from public beach access for cool night ghost crab hunts! Easy access to everything fun! On Tybee you should visit the Lighthouse and Marine Science Center; in Savannah the JGL House, Savannah Theatre and Pirate House for lunch... all awesome attractions and welcoming to Girl Scouts.The cottage owner was super friendly and easy to work with. This is a nice alternative to a hotel room, and extremely economical too! The girls cant quit talking about how much fun we had!

Budget friendly

  • 5 of 5

We stayed on bottom floor. Our stay was pleasant and accommodating. Plenty of extras helped our stay be even more pleasant than we expected including extra beach chairs and a new beach umbrella. Floors were nice and overall I would stay again. As I titled this, budget friendly!!! Not a 5 star but very nice.

Beautiful and Cozy Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We visited Tybee Island during St. Patrick's Day weekend for a bachelorette party. The house was PERFECT! We had 14 girls staying with us and the house had all of the amenities that we needed. We were able to walk across the street to the convenient store for things we had forgotten and we walked to dinner on Friday night. There was plenty of room for everyone to park as well in the side yard.

The pictures of the house do not do it justice! We were amazed with how much room there was for everyone and abundant places for everyone to sleep. The backyard and side yard were perfect for hanging outside and playing games. Inside, we had plenty of space to store food (3 fridges!) and everyone to be comfortable. We had to be creative with making a schedule for showers since there were only 3 but everything worked out fabulous! The upstairs bathroom even had a huge mirror that pulled out while other girls were in the shower/bathroom. Everything was well maintained and cleaned. Customer service was quick the few times I contacted them before our stay too.

I will definitely be returning to stay again and tell anyone heading this way to stay too!

Relaxing thanksgiving with friends at Tybee island

  • 2 of 5

Me and friends of mine stayed at the Coral house for the thanksgiving holiday. The coral house location was perfect for us. 5 minutes walk to beach, close to liquor store, gas station and light house. However, the house itself wasnot what we expected. They claimed for 16 beds. 6 of beds actually were sofa beds and there was two twin beds which are not roomy for two. There were not enough towels, sheets, blanket and pillows. They were dirty. The first floor was not clean. The plates, glasses and other dishwares were not clean and we had to wash them off again. The dishwashers did not work properly so we had to wash off things by hand. The outdoor seats were very old. There was only a small charcoal grill in the yard. So for each meal we had to reload the charcoal 2 times.

The bottom line, we only enjoyed each other company and the first floor of the house and its amenities should be renewed. It does not worth the money that we spent.

Owner's Response: Coral House has 2 Queen beds, 1 King bed, 2 Full beds, and 3 Queen sofa-beds. That's 8 beds. With 2 people per bed, we can sleep 16 comfortably. I ran both dishwashers through a cycle and they cleaned normally. It's just not credible that all the dishes and glasses were put away dirty and nobody noticed before these guests arrived.

WONDERFUL CORAL HOUSE

  • 5 of 5

We really and truly enjoyed Coral House! The balconies, and the court yard! There was more than enough space for everyone! We cooked dinner every night and the kitchens were well stocked! We took advantage of the bike rental discount and the kids had a ball, touring the island. This is the third time we have rented from Ted and we intend to again! Ted is really sweet and will attend to any need you might have. No complaints:)

Peachy Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the penthouse. It was so peaceful. The views out the windows and sliding glass doors were amazing with the trees all around. I felt like I was up in a fancy treehouse. The penthouse was clean, smelled wonderful, and had everything we needed. The staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The porch was paradise. I loved sitting at night out there listening to the ocean waves, which by the way was just a short walk at the end of the street. Will definitely be back.
