Overview

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.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this townhouse! Not only was it beautiful inside, it was right on the ocean with beautiful views. A pool next door, a park across the street. Bike rides. Wonderful places to eat within walking distance. We will definitely come back. Thanks Donna for being so kind and generous with your place!

Perfect family vacation spot!!

  • 5 of 5

I thought long and hard about where I wanted to spend my 50th Birthday. We already had plans to go to Europe later in the summer for my husbands birthday, so I knew i wanted to stay in the US. Coming from Arizona, we go to California a lot so I wanted something different. Someone mentioned Tybee Island and it sounded great. I was so excited to be so close to Savannah so I could have a beach holiday and a city trip too!

The condo is perfect for my family of 5. The boys shared a room and had their own bathroom on the 3rd floor and my daughter had the queen bed and her own bathroom on the main level. My husband and I were lucky enough to have the view outside our window. What a wonderful way to wake up! There are plenty of towels and the beds are very comfy. We were so happy there was air conditioning, because if you weren't by the water, it was toasty!

The kitchen is filled with everything you could need to cook anything plus condiments! The grocery store is a quick bike ride or car ride away. There are beach towels and a few toys in the garage. There is a place on the beach to rent umbrellas and chairs daily. It was nice being on the northern side of the island as it's quieter and away from the crowds near the pier.

Donna was easily accessible and so helpful.

I felt so lucky to have found this place. Would definitely go back.

Great place on a great beach

  • 5 of 5

We went to Tybee and spent almost 2 weeks at this townhouse. It was perfect for our family. Conveniently located right next door to The Deck (a restaurant we went to twice), this place worked well for us. Nice living spaces, bedrooms, and views from the two decks. The owners are very customer friendly and are as much of a plus as the property is.

I encourage you to rent bikes while there. There is much to see, do, and eat that can easily be accessed by bike. There was a beach chair/umbrella rental stand set up right on the beach, so that's what we did most of the time. Chairs are each $5/day and the umbrella was $20/day although we were able to bargain that price down a bit when we got out to the beach later in the afternoon.

The kitchen had plenty of cooking gear, utensils, and glasses. There is a Keurig for coffee lovers. We cooked a lot at home during the time we stayed there, and there wasn't much in the way of containers for left overs. So, you might consider getting the disposable ones at the store. Speaking of stores, I would suggest going to Kroger or Walmart on the way in if you're traveling on a Saturday. The local IGA is crazy packed during that day.

Overall, this property is a great place and highly recommend it.

RELAXING! Beautiful condo right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

LOVED IT! A day hasn't gone by that my husband has asked "When are we going back?" Condo is right on the beach with two decks to enjoy sunrises. Easy access to the beach and an short walk to a community park with volleyball, tennis, picnic and play area. Condo is very nicely decorated and very comfortable. We felt right at home upon arriving. Thank you Rumsey's for sharing your home!

Oceanfront Gem

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Tybee Island and our first stay in the Rumsey's property. I can't say enough about their home. It was perfect in every way. Incredible views of the ocean with amazing sun rises every morning, direct access to the beach, and all of the amenities of home. We are already booking it for next year.
