Beach House/Private Beach

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,600 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

This 'second row' beach house comes with its own private beach. Originally built in 2002, it has just been refurbished including brand new kitchen appliances. Situated at the mouth of the Back River this house allows boat and kayak access to Little Tybee island and the surrounding waterways.

In the past we have offered a wet slip for boat use at AJ's. Demand for the slip has not justified the cost of continuation. Based on availability, a slip at AJ's may be an option on a nightly or weekly basis.

*The beach House will transfer ownership July 31, 2018. Please email Ellen Ebberwein for rental questions past July 31. Her email is her first and last name with no space at gmail and is taking reservations. A new VRBO account will be opened the week of June, 2.

Why Jim Bohmer chose Tybee Island

This location on Tybee is ideal. Quiet, but quick access to the oceanfront and boating opportunities second to none on the island.

What makes this house unique

Incredible sunsets over the Back River. Immediate boating access to the surrounding waterways. Very quiet area of Tybee with low density of vacationers.

Perfect beach house!

  • 5 of 5

I really don’t want to review this little gem so I can keep it a secret! But I have to share it with the world so others can enjoy it too. This house is fabulous. It is comfortable, clean and has everything you could possibly need. I was so impressed. Thank you Jim for being so thoughtful in your provisions for a relaxing holiday. It is perfectly placed in Tybee Island, right beside the beach and close enough to walk easily to all the shops and restaurants. You will not be disappointed by this house. We will definitely be back!

Perfect for a low-key getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My 5 friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay over a long weekend for our annual board game retreat. You could see the water from the house and easily take a walk on the beach! The site was secluded enough to be away from the busyness of town but close enough to walk/bike places or drive in to Savannah. The house was very clean and well equipped, and there was plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably. The washing machine was very helpful after going to the beach! The screened-in porch overlooking the beach was one of my favorite parts of the house.

The only problem we encountered was fitting our large car in the parking spot under the house since we got stuck in the sand. I recommend using the hose near the garage to wet pack the sand if your wheels get stuck!

Awesome family house!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our family vacation! The location is perfect! Walking distance to town, the ocean and the white sandy beach is your back yard!

We had an issue Thanksgiving morning and between the home owner and the manager, the issue was resolved within minutes.

Thanks again Jim!

Many great memories were made here! We hope to be back!

Great find and very clean

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! The house was exceptionally clean - probably the cleanest rental I’ve ever stayed in. The kitchen was well appointed and had plenty of utensils/plates/cookware etc. We did have to go on a scavenger hunt to find the outside trash can the last day - turns out they are all located near the driveway entrance and labeled with the house number.
