We have rented three different houses on Tybee; the first was too big, the second was too small, but BREAKING AWAY was JUST RIGHT! When my three-year-old grandson walked into the house for the first time, he looked around and said, "Ooh, it's so pretty." And he was right; it is. It's furnished with an eclectic mix of vintage and seaside-themed decor, including many of my fav -- flamingos. The kitchen is equipped for people who enjoy both cooking and eating, and there's an abundance of dishes and flatware. That kitchen is stocked! The bedrooms are spacious with plenty of closet and drawer space. The beds are extremely comfortable. The full bath is quite large, and the half bath is affectionately referred to as the Tiniest Toilet on Tybee. There are two living/dining areas, which provide plenty of comfortable furnishings on which to read, watch TV or snooze the afternoon away. There is also a large covered side porch with additional comfy seating and a dining table. Should you ever want to leave the extreme comfort of this house, there are two playgrounds within easy walking distance and of course there's always the beach, which is a couple of blocks away. I love this house! And we will be returning this summer and can't wait.

Enjoyable vacation at 612 Gull Reef Our family thoroughly enjoyed our time at this condo. Tybee Joy was extremely helpful and friendly in booking a place that fit what our family was looking for. The condo was very clean, spacious with nice rooms, a great kitchen with modern appliances and a modern washer and dryer. One of the three pools was heated, which was perfect for this time of year (our kids particularly enjoyed swimming at night), and the restaurant fare was also enjoyable (they also enjoyed eating by the pool). Excellent beach access, and awesome playground right across the street behind the library. We were very pleased with everything.

After speaking with the Visitor Info. Center we had narrowed down our search for accomodations on the ocean side of middle island and I was recontacted within 24 hours by Brooke with new/different listings to meet our needs within 7 days of travel. Voicemails were returned promptly and all members willingly answered my questions and offered suggestions re: where to eat, providing island contacts for activities, etc. in emails and such.

Property Rating:
SUPERB CONDITION & LOCATION! We liked being so close to the beach and not having to cross the street with small children and senior adults. We also liked being on a non-trafficked street! Being across from the IGA was nice for short trips to the grocery store, and served well as a landmark. The private walkway with security code likewise made us feel safe by reducing foot traffic.

Bird Watching

Tybee Island is on the Colonial Coastal Birding trail and hosts over two hundred and eleven bird species. Located on the Atlantic Flyway we are host to tens of thousands of migratory birds making Tybee and Little Tybee is a must. We are also a safe haven and winter destination for wintering shorebirds like the endangered Piping Plover, Purple Sandpiper, Red Knot,  Black bellied Plover, Dunlin and many more. No matter if you are a birder that stays on the veranda, beats the bush, or just strolls on the beach, Tybee island will be a great experience for you. One of the best and easiest locations to find excellent birding is on the north beach at  the foot of the Tybee lighthouse. Park in the north beach parking lot at the far end and use the crossover.  From the beach you will see the Northern Gannett, various Terns, Ducks and Gulls flying offshore, or probing in the sand  for food. The rock jetty at the edge of the water is the place to find the Purple Sandpiper. Walk further north towards the Savannah River and you will see mixed flocks of shorebirds roosting, that include the American oystercatcher, Black Backed Gulls, Black Skimmers, Red knots and Plovers. The American Oystercatcher is rare with only approx. ninety breeding pairs in Georgia. However we regularly see them on our beaches and  in our tidal creeks, perched on the oyster rakes waiting for the oysters to open up. They use their bills to pry open the oysters for a treat.  The Black Skimmer is also often clustered here in numbers of a hundred or more. The Skimmer is named after its feeding method. The bird has a lower beak that is a third longer than the upper beak and skims the surface of the water with their bill snapping shut within a hundredth of a second when they hit a fish. Look closely at birds on Tybee and see if you spot a band. Many of the Piping Plovers and Oystercatchers will have a color band on them. The place to report all birds with bands or tags is the Bird Banding Laboratory at the Patuxent Wildlife Center. The number is 1-800-327-2263. The lab will take the report and pass it on to the bird’s original bander. Eventually (it can take a while!), you will get a note telling you where and when the bird was originally banded. Local Birders here can actually pinpoint a small group of approx. twelve banded Piping Plovers that spend their winters here and there summers in the Great lakes. Year round, we often see and hear  the American Oystercatcher, Great Blue Heron, Black and Yellow Crowned Night Heron, Green Heron, Great Egret, Snowy Egret, Louisiana Heron, Black Skimmer, Clapper Rail, Osprey, Brown Pelican, Cormorant, and Willet. In the winter we see a variety of ducks/water fowl including Bufflehead, Merganser (both Hooded and Red Breasted), Loons, and Scoters. The Sally Pearce Nature trail is a great place to stop for the amateur botanist and birder. Although it is a short walk, it is a good spot for warblers the Painted Bunting and many different local plants. The trail starts back from Route 80  on the right between the first and second light on Tybee. The south end of the island offers two different piers. The Pier at the strand and the Back River Fishing Pier with  a great view of the ocean, one can also see Little Tybee Island from these vantage points. Little Tybee is a 7,600 acre Natural Heritage Preserve owned by the state of Georgia. The birding is spectacular as it is undisturbed and only accessible by boat. Contact a local captain/naturalist or a kayaking outfit to set up a visit. When leaving Tybee there is another great birding spot on your right, Fort Pulaski. The marsh that surrounds the fort and near the bridge are a great spot in the winter for Sparrows,  both varieties of Sharp-tail; Nelson’s and Salt marsh and Seaside, as well as Marsh Wrens. There are plenty of trails to walk around on and you may spot a flock of Cedar Waxwings. This is another good spot for warblers and the Painted Bunting. On the bridge to the park you will see Forester’s Terns lining the railing in winter. We welcome you and may you have great birding!
