Description of the Tybee Island vacation condo rental
This wonderful first floor condo will provide all the comfort and amenities you will want for a great vacation home.
Ships Watch is newly remodeled with attention to every detail to make your stay the best it can be.
The living room has a red Lazy Boy sofa that is truly comfortable. A new 32 inch TV/DVD combo is wall-mounted for easy viewing.
The bedroom offers a very comfortable NEW King bed with built in vanity. You also have a small television, wall-mounted, in the bedroom. The bedroom wall that backs to the hallway has been soundproofed to reduce and minimize exterior sounds.
The newly remodeled bathroom is wonderful. You will enjoy the walk-in shower. A compact washer/dryer is installed in the bathroom.
The Ships Watch kitchen has all the conveniences of home. With the dishwasher and disposal, your meal preparation will be very efficient so you can spend more time on the beach or at the pool. This kitchen is nicely equipped with many small appliances and all the dishes, cookware and utensils you could possibly need.
Ships Watch is a great location. You can sit on the deck with WiFi and watch all the ships from the Savannah port pass by the complex. The deck, as you can see in the photo, is beside the upper pool deck. You have a front row seat to everything that happens in this complex. It's great fun for "people watchers".
Area Information
See and Do Tybee Island Georgia..
We don't have big attractions, for the most part. We, of course, are home of the Historic Tybee Lighthouse and we have Ft. Pulaski, The Racquet Club is on the north beach and is in a residential area away from the nightlife of the south beach. Our beach is lined with beautiful homes. We boast Sandra Bullock as our neighbor since she's just a few doors up the beach. There is limited public access so the beach is not crowded. We are just off the beaten path of the Atlantic so all the ships entering and leaving the Savannah port have to pass in front of us. You'll see amazing cargo ships and things like that. Dolphin tour boats, the gambling boat from Savannah, shrimpers, kayakers and all kinds of watercraft will be entertaining you. Dolphins are everywhere ... hundreds of them

Other Vacation Rental Amenities
We have great restaurants! You will cross the Lazaretto Bridge when you come onto the island and the highway divides there. Pay attention to the first and the second right turns as you come off the bridge. The first will take you to Cafe Loco and the second (right off 80 - quick left - quick right - 1/4 mile) will take you to the Crab Shack. Those are both great places to eat. Plan for the Crab Shack mid-afternoon and you'll save yourself a long line. The rest of the restaurants you'll see if you just drive around the island. It's not very big - 3 miles long. Those two you need to know where they are to find them. There is one other place, called AJs, that's very nice and a great place for nice dinner. Simple directions take a right at the second traffic light on the island (Jones Ave) and drive until it ends at Chatham Ave. Take a right and go about 1/4 mile and the street will make a sharp right curve. Look to your left at the curve and you'll see AJs. You can dine on the decks and be overlooking the inter-coastal waterway of the Back River. I have one other suggestion but it's for lunch Don't eat breakfast and go around 11:30 to beat the crowd. All the island residents eat lunch here police, too.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is there to see and do?
A: To See & Do!
We don't have big attractions, for the most part. We, of course, are home of the Historic Tybee Lighthouse and we have Ft. Pulaski, The Racquet Club is on the north beach and is in a residential area away from the nightlife of the south beach. Our beach is lined with beautiful homes.

I have one other suggestion but it's for lunch Don't eat breakfast and go around 11:30 to beat the crowd. All the island residents eat lunch here police, too. At that second traffic light I told you about on Jones is a little shopping 'thing' with a gas station. In the middle is a restaurant called Sundae's Cafe. They have the best food on the Island ... hands down. For lunch, Monday through Fridays, they have home cooked meals. They are so good. $6.95 for your meal and that includes drink. Monday through Wednesday are my favorite days ! Monday is pot roast, Tuesday is fried pork chops (best you'll ever eat) and Wednesday is ham day. They have a couple of options each day. The food is outstanding and plenty. A friend and I share a meal occasionally and it's plenty ! While you're there, ask for an evening menu. They have a completely different menu for the evening and it can be a little pricey so look, in advance. You may still escape some of the rush of the Island in April but not much. This time of year, all of the Island is pretty busy and the locals get lost in the crowds with the visitors. There are a couple of 'hangouts' on the south beach area that you might enjoy. Go towards the south beach and take a left turn on 16th St. This is one block of 'stuff' that leads down to the beach. Doc's Bar is on the left about halfway down. When you get to the end of the block, take a right and you'll see 'Fannie's' on the right. These are the two most popular with locals. You'll want to make a couple of day trips to Savannah. The historic downtown area is about a 20-25 minute drive. The waterfront and downtown area is wonderful. don't forget City Market which is where Paula Deen's restaurant is if you're a fan. Dolphin tour boats are down by Cafe Locos. You'll see that. It's a nice and fun boat ride and not pricey. One other thing As you approach Tybee, you'll pass Whitemarsh Island - about 12 miles out. Whitemarsh is just this side of Savannah. Regardless of how you come in, you'll see a large overpass over 80. There is a Super Wal-Mart and Publix grocery store in that shopping area. Stop there to purchase any grocery items you may need. We do have a grocery store on the island that's great for things you might have forgotten but it's a little pricey and the selection is not always great. They do have good meats ! Something that I find fascinating every summer is the turtles. you might be a little early. The official date hasn't been written yet, but "Turtle Nesting" is a big deal on island communities, especially where the Dept of Natural Resources or Marine Science Centers have presence, as they do on Tybee. This island protects turtles like I protect my grandchildren. It's amazing. You'll see turtle art work everywhere. Turtle art is the backing for a lot of directional signs. Anyway, normally from May through August or September, we have turtle nesting season. At night the huge sea turtles come on shore and make their way into the dunes to lay their eggs. Towards the end of the season, when the eggs hatch, mama makes her way back to the ocean with all the turtles following her. It's amazing and I've only seen it one time. Light has a terrible effect on the turtles and they lose their direction if they are confronted with bright light. They do their 'walks' from dusk till dawn because they lose their way in the daylight.
Last year, we had several baby turtles run over by vehicles because the turtles got lost on their way to the water. It was a big deal ! There are all kinds of notices about turning off porch lights and property lights during the nesting season and if you don't do it, the law will come and visit. We have to keep the property lights directed towards the inside of the property instead of in the dunes during nesting season.All of that to say this There are walks in the wee morning hours where workers from DNR and the Marine Science Center walk the beachline from one end of the island to the other. They look for turtle nest and they flag them with orange flags so people will know where they are and stay clear. If you see a bunch of folks walking down the beach, take the kids and go join them. It's great fun! Well that a liitle bit of what there is to see and do in and around Tybee Island or you just could lay back and relax!Have a GREAT time!
