About the property

Southend House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 18)

Casa Oceano Rio is the ultimate Tybee vacation rental. Located at the convergence of the Atlantic Ocean and Tybee's Back River it is less than a block to 5 miles of one of the best beaches on the east coast. It is also less than a block walk to the secluded and protected Back River beach which offers a quieter and more tranquil environment.

We renovated the 1st floor and restored original 'bath house' from 1929. 1st floor has 2 large BR, 2 baths, including laundry facilities. 2nd floor has kitchen, living room, dining room, 2 BR, and 1 1/2 baths. 3rd floor is the master bedroom loft suite with large bathroom with dual sinks and a large walk in slate shower. Spiral staircase provides access to the roof top deck for a panoramic view of the island and the most amazing sunsets.

This custom built private residence features a 12 person hot tub/dipping pool that is ideal for relaxing after a day at the beach or on the water. This home offers all the toys for an unforgettable beach vacation including 6 kayaks with pull carts, paddles and life jackets, beach chairs, umbrellas, bocce balls, beach cart, boogie boards, beach toys and a large cooler on wheels. No need to pack up all this stuff and bring it with you.

This home is on Tybee's popular south beach area. It is off the main thoroughfares but within walking distance of Tybee's main shopping, restaurant and nightlife district.

Great place to vacation with multiple families and friends. Especially kid friendly as the kids like the privacy of staying downstairs with their own bedrooms and baths, while the adults like the quiet of being upstairs. This is a family type home in a quiet neighborhood and the rental party must be 25 years old.

Please check our calendar before inquiring on availability as it is kept up to date. Also, the Rates section reflects our current rates and all additional charges for taxes and cleaning fee are clearly defined.

About Shelly Fields

We used this home as our family residence for 17 years. We have raised our 2 sons here and we are now empty nesters and don't need all this space. We love Tybee and may move back some day but for now we're going to share our little slice of heaven with others.

Shelly Fields purchased this house in 1986

Why Shelly Fields chose Tybee Island

Willie bought this property and the public shower houses back in the 80s and built his dream home around it. He maintained the integrity of the shower houses and the original tile is still in the first floor bathrooms today. He loves everything about the water (sailing, fishing, boating, etc.) and it was his dream to live at the beach. He then built our home around the shower houses and the rest is history.

What makes this house unique

Just an ideal location. Close to back river and ocean, but also within walking distance to the Pier and the strand.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very clean, spacious and it had everything we needed. The dipping pool was awesome and we enjoyed our time in it as well as up in the crows nest enjoying the view! Loved being close to the beach, shops and restaurants. We did not meet Shelly and Willie but they responded very quickly to messages! I would highly recommend this home!

Absolutely perfect location for kayaking and swimming beach!

  • 4 of 5

A few maintenance issues, but nothing that took away from our enjoyment! We saw dolphins and pelicans close up, terrific sunsets, businesses just a short walk away... and friendly hosts!

Perfect Beach Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous time on Tybee Island at Casa Oceano Rio! We were there in late April for a girls weekend away and the 10 of use all had ample room within this spacious home. The location is incredible, you have sunrise from the roof deck and sun set from the back porch and dipping pool and you can easily walk to the beach and the central areas on Tybee. It is also incredibly convenient for a night out in Savannah. The kitchen was well equipped - blenders, drink pitchers, extra coffee carafes, grill utensils, so many serving bowls, etc and the owners stock the garage with dozens of beach chairs and equipment. Shelley was fabulous and incredibly responsive throughout the process. I would highly recommend this home!

We had a great time! Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us! The location is perfect! If you are looking for a quiet getaway with easy access to the beach and close (enough) walking proximity to town this is it.

Great House, Location, View and the Pool was icing on the cake

  • 5 of 5

Family of 16 had plenty of room to spread out. Plenty of bathrooms and showers to wash the masses. Kitchen was equipped with everything imagineable. Pool was fantastic and the kids all loved it after hours at the beach. We couldn’t asked for a better house to fit our needs and Tybee Island is a fantastic place to vacation. We will definitely be back!

Car: recommended

There is no better way to see the saltwater marsh and natural surroundings of Tybee Island and Little Tybee than kayaking. It is exhilarating, relaxing and truly one of Tybee Island's best activities. Kayaks are around $40 a day to rent and we are providing 4 with your rental.

Tybee also has bike routes designated to safely bike around the island. Be sure and make stops along the way at the Lighthouse, Fort Screven, or stop at Seaweeds for an ice cream cone or Huc-a-Poos for a great slice of pizza. Tim's Bike Gear has daily or weekly rentals and will deliver/pick-up bikes to/from the house.
