About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms , 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

With over 40 5-STAR REVIEWS, this luxury townhome sits right on the ocean on Tybee Island’s northeastern beaches. In 2017, after 15 years of fun, we decided to completely renovate and upgrade the home.

We had a blast, adding millennial lighting, quartz counters and crazy cool fixtures. We blew walls out to optimize oceanviews from every room and built a nautical staircase out of reclaimed wood, iron pipe and steel cable. The furniture is sleek and comfy. The art is all original. The views are off-the-charts. And the end result feels like “SoHo on the ocean”.

This is the perfect home for family gatherings with spectacular views from the oceanfront living room and dining area. Settle in to the master suite with views of the ocean from your luxurious king size bed and built-in electronic fireplace and large screen tv. Step out on the private deck off the master and enjoy rocking chairs aimed right at cargo ships moving across the horizon towards the port of Savannah. Relax with an air bath in the custom master tub for two.

Enjoy private club privileges with pools and a world class restaurant (“The Deck” – Tybee’s only truly oceanfront restaurant) right next door on the property.

Walk right out the back door through the dunes and you’re on the beach!

Parking is available for up to three cars. The home includes a 2 car garage with 3rd space outside in a private gated lot with NO CROWDS.

Just a short walk or bike ride down the beach to the famous Tybee Lighthouse or the fishing pier on the Strand, it's the perfect location. Pets are welcome with a large park across the street with sand volleyball, tennis and basketball. This property has it all!

You'll find loads of island activities including eclectic shops, museums, biking and fantastic seafood restaurants. This Tybee Island charm is only twenty minutes from historic, downtown Savannah.

Call us today to book the perfect long weekend or week long vacation! We have some special last minute deals and very competitive rates.

About Donna Rumsey

Greetings! Our story started 12 years ago with a visit to Tybee. We rented in the community, loved it and decided to own. We waited for the one with the BEST view of the ocean... and got it! Tybee is about 4 hours from our home in the Atlanta suburbs. When we aren't skiing, we head to the beach, about 5 times/yr. It's a perfect creative space for us to express our love of original art and local crafts. It's just plain fun to decorate a home on the coast.

Donna Rumsey purchased this condo in 2003

Why Donna Rumsey chose Tybee Island

We love this beach. We don't like crowded commercial beaches. Tybee is the perfect place with plenty to do but still offers a quaint, local's feel. Our place is directly on the ocean and the views are truly amazing! There are only a small percentage of true oceanfront properties on Tybee so we love to share our unique find.

What makes this condo unique

Last time we didn't even use our car. The beaches are unlike most- they are huge with no shortage of very private walking space. There is a city park across the street with tennis courts, picnic tables, basketball and sand volleyball courts. We are in the perfect location and you feel like there is such privacy from our decks yet there is loads to do within a short walk.

Loved this place...very homey and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our 1st visit to Tybee Island. The location and oceanfront ease made it an excellent vacation with 2 small children. Pool on site and a great park was nearby. Savannah was a fun day trip and only minutes away!! The townhome was great...clean, new appliances and many more amenities! We plan to revisit next year!! Thanks to all for great Southern Hospitality!!

Great Place to stay in Tybee

  • 5 of 5

I spent my first visit to Tybee at this condo and couldn't have been happier. Beautifully decorated and very clean. Access to the beach is perfect and local eatery, Marlin Monroe's was great as well. I highly recommend this home!

Old friend reunion

  • 5 of 5

We are four old friends from high school days, plus two daughters, who went to the beach and had a wonderful reunion. The condo was fantastic. Great view, very comfortable beds, all new appliances and very clean. Our favorite restaurants were Sting Rays, Pirates House and Mrs. Wilkes. Thank you Donna for sharing your beach home with us. I highly recommend your condo.

The weather could not have been better. The place was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Your artwork is so good!!! Family of 6 adults and 3 children with plenty of room! With only 20 minutes to Savannah....this could not have been a better vacation. The beach here is wide and we enjoyed the island wide yard sale! The master bed spoiled me.....very comfortable....I want a new one! Can't go without going to The Crab Shack....that's a must. Would recommend this unit to anyone.
