Designer Townhouses near Secluded Beaches on Tybee Island
Georgia’s tiny Tybee Island is much quieter than its vibrant neighbor, Savannah, but what it lacks in bustle it makes up for in natural splendor. Travel + Leisure ranks the barrier island’s coast among the most beautiful in the country, and its sprawling wetlands are home to rare loggerhead turtles, egrets, and dolphins. The elegant townhouses of Luxury Living Savannah Tybee sit in the midst of this scenic landscape, near historical sights such as the century-old Tybee Island Light Station and Museum and Fort Screven, which served as a stronghold until World War II.
The townhouses feature jacuzzi tubs and balconies overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Bamboo floors, wicker chairs, and sea-green hues give the 1,700-square-foot Oceanfront Oasis a distinctly tropical vibe. The master bedroom has a Sony home-theater system, and the master bathroom features a vanity with two sinks. Outside, you'll have access to a charcoal grill and swimming pool. The 54 Captain's View property, meanwhile, occupies half of a secluded duplex brightened by colorful wall murals and stained-glass windows designed by local artists. With the beach just yards away, the view here is worthy of a postcard.
Tybee Island, Georgia: Quaint Island Retreat Minutes from Downtown Savannah
Tybee Island can be reached via a 30-minute drive east from Savannah. The small barrier islet is home to a 3-mile stretch of beach dotted by sand dunes covered in sea oats. Visitors and residents flock to the shore year-round for kayak trips and dolphin tours and to fish off the piers. Along the dockside, there's a string of outdoor restaurants that serve up beer-battered fish, steamed oysters, and shrimp right off the boat.
You can learn about the town's rich maritime history at a number of nearby forts, cottages, and landmarks, such as Tybee Island lighthouse, which offers panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. Just a 30-minute shuttle ride away is downtown Savannah, where you’ll find cobblestone streets, lively buskers, and energetic nightlife.
