We’re Porched On Tybee Island

Tybe's Summer Movie NightsWe’re porched on Tybee Island.  No, it’s not a misprint.  We’re not saying we’re parched.  Given that we live on a quirky little island with plenty of watering holes, we are not sucking in the lively libations department.  As we say in the South, “We’uns is porched!”  We love our porches and they’re just as much a part of our quirky, laid back, “it’ll get done when it gets done“, “don’t rush me and make me waste my Sweet Tea”, and “talk to the sand ’cause beach hair don’t care” laissez faire.  We like ’em down low so we don’t fall off of ’em after being sociable and neighborly with our afternoon cocktails.  We like ’em up high so we can rock in rhythm with the waves chasing the tides.  We even like ’em stacked up two or three stories high like a Church lady’s hair that gets jacked-up-to-Jesus before Sunday morning services.  Yep, we like our porches.  In fact, here are several saintly porches that make us feel closer to heaven every time we kick off our flip flops and relax.

Back River Bungalow

Yes, this large front porch comes with rocking chairs and there’s a large back screened porch, too. Guests love this super location, as it’s close to the Alley 3 paddleboard and kayak launch, the Back River fishing pier, and AJ’s Dockside. You’ll love the easy walk to our 14th Street beach and to downtown Tybee.

Brooks Cottage

Brooks Cottage includes three screened porches, each more magical than the other. It’s pet-friendly and it’s also a great house for family get-togethers! You’ll enjoy the fully fenced yard and it’s close proximity to the south end beach, as well as the Back River beach!

Enlisted Mens Mess Hall circa 1925

This Tybee landmark was originally built as a soldiers’ mess hall. It’s been lovingly restored and preserved for your pleasure. Pet-friendly, a fenced-in yard, a wraparound screened porch and just two short blocks to the beach along a secret, private path.

Screened Inn circa 1925

Tybee Tides circa 1930

Whispering Palms circa 1925

Yes, we’re porched on Tybee Island.  Now, this is just a sampling, mind you.  Listen to your flip flops.  They’re begging you to slip them on long enough to make the one tank trip.  Once you get settled in with one of our Mermaid Cottages, you’ll be overdressed if you’re anything but barefoot.
