Location, location, location. One guest made this comment in his five star review of 1709 Inlet Avenue. We think you will agree! This house feels quiet and secluded; you may see dolphins swimming in the Inlet Waterway, yet you are close enough to walk to shops and restaurants.
Enter this family friendly townhouse rental through the two-car garage stairs, or from the outside steps (15). As you walk into the spacious, open living/dining/kitchen, you will see what another guest calls THE VIEW. The Inlet and Little Tybee are visible from every part of the room, and there is an angled view of the Atlantic.
Comfortable seating, a large screen TV, and a dining room table that seats six or eight with the leaf are great for spending time together. The kitchen has a bar with three chairs and a separate bar area for vacation libations. Also features a screened porch with a cathedral ceiling and an even closer look at the Inlet and Little Tybee and a balcony for sun bathing.
There are two bedrooms and two baths on this level. The king room has a wicker bed and desk, a TV and opens into a vanity area and then a private area for the rest of the bath. The second bedroom has twin wicker beds, a TV, and a full bath with tub/shower combo that can be entered from the bedroom and the hall.
13 steps will take you to the master suite that occupies this whole level. The spacious king bedroom has a panoramic view and a TV. There is a Jacuzzi tub and two pedestal sinks opening into a separate vanity with private toilet and shower.
There is also a queen bedroom and private bath on the ground level next to the garage.

"My husband and I took our 2 grown sons and family for some seaside relaxation. This was exactly the ticket. We were slightly disappointed by the function (or lack) of some of the features of the home (jacuzzi, DVD player, dishwasher, icemaker) but the view was breathtaking and although the beach was not private, it never felt like a public beach. We plan to do this every year."
"Had some bug issues in kitchen and downstairs bedrooms and think that the kitchen equipment needs restocking ( no cookie sheets for example), but otherwise, it feels like home since we have rented this property a number of times in the past. This was the first time in the summer, however, and proximity to the ocean beach was an issue when hauling kids and equipment."
"brick wall made manuvering of cars difficult...obviously for others also - as it had been hit many times!"
"THE HOUSE WAS IN A WONDERFUL LOCATION. VERY PEACEFUL! IT WAS A PERFECT VACATION COTTAGE."
"Great house; great location."
"Location was phenomenal , Jim Heflin made the process of booking a breeze, and our time there was refreshing and peaceful."
"Awesome stay! View took my our breath away! Closer to the beach than most homes on the ocean! Beds were comfortable. Drive way NOT for larger vehicles! Very difficult."
"The location and beach were great. The parking was not too good right at house but very small.
However, the screened pourch was the greatest and made up for any short comings the property might have, I recommend this property highly and plan on staying again."
"My family & myself stayed here at Inlet Ave. recently. My family who lives out west had never been to the beach. There were seven kids all seven years old & younger & this place was PERFECT for us. Not only were the views great from the cottage itself but not having to load & unload kids every day was great but being on the river where small kids could swim without being beat up by the waves & also being that close to the ocean made it convenient. Just like anything over time the house has taken some wear & tear & could use a little work. All & all this is a great place to stay & my family had a blast."
"Enjoyed the view and the beach. Time went by to fast there!!!"
"location,location,location. what a great screen porch."
"The property is in a great location on the south end of tybee. Many recent upgrades made this year's stay even better than in the past. We will be back!!"
"Our family of five had a great time on Tybee Island. I love the fact that Tybee is not too commercial, yet we found plenty of fun things to do. We will use Tybee Cottages for all of our future stays. They were very helpful, answered all of my questions, and made finding our ideal vacation spot easy. We have told all of our friends about our fun trip!"
"This is our third vacation at this home. Great location right on the back shore beach. Appreciated the renovations completed since our last visit, however I did miss the small deck that was removed from outside the master bedroom. I have previously enjoyed sunsets from the deck. We had a few problems. The stove has a child lock on the oven (it was locked)and we had to go on-line to find tech data to figure out how to unlock this setting. This home has many, many lighr switches. It would make use easier for a visitor if they were labeled. You need to do a perimeter spraying in the garage and the outside door on the lower level. We had a problem with bugs of the very large variety. I love this place. We will be back."
"Perfect house for a family to share. Looking forward to returning to Tybee."
"The beach house was very nice, well equipped, and offered a terrific view. We really enjoyed it and the location was excellent. We have used Tybee Cottages many times and they are always very professional and accommodating."
"Property location and views were wonderful. Great, quiet location with easy access into Savannah and surrounding area. Watched dolphins swimming in the inlet from the back porch. Rain and 35mph winds failed to spoil our trip."
"Trips to Tybee are made easier by Tybee Cottages. I always use them to rent when I visit."
"We had a great time on Tybee Island. We loved the location of this house. The inlet was much less crowded and the clam water was great for little kids.
The 'big ocean' (as the kids called it) was a short walk, or drive away. We would spend a few hours there playing in the waves with the buggy boards and then go back to the house, where the kids could play in the water without us having to be right there with them all the time.
The only down side was that we could not hear the ocean waves from the house.
The house was very nice. It is well maintained and was clean and comfortable.
The 10:00 check out time was a little early though. Especially when you are supposed to have all the dishes washed, garbage out and laundry in the laundry room. It was hard to get all our stuff packed and the house picked up and out by 10:00.
The house cleaner showed up at 10:30 and we were just finishing up our packing. She was pretty rude about us not being out yet.
I understand that they have to get the house clean and ready for the next guests, but they could send more then one person to clean which would make it go faster and they could have an 11:00 check out time."
"We live only 20 minutes from Tybee, but love this house and the location so much!! It is a great getaway and the property management is awesome!"
"We were very satisfied with our stay. The location was awesome and the house was roomy and had everything we needed."
"The bath tub drains were not functioning well. The overall maintenance and cleanliness needs work."
"This house was perfect! It was just the right size and had everything you could possibly need. You could walk right out to the beach, there was plenty of parking and it was close enough to walk to most restaurants. Jim Heflin was incredibly helpful in getting the home booked and we loved our stay!"
"My family have rented this house for 5 years and we always enjoy it. This year was even better- dated wallpaper had been removed and everything freshly painted. Jim Heflin, the manager, is always helpful. We rented a smaller property from him, before our family grew. He's a great guy!"
"Me, my husband and some of our extended family stayed here. It was great! So roomy and comfortable. It is technically a duplex but it felt so secluded. THE VIEW! Oh my, spectacular! I could go on forever here! I will definitely be renting the house again for future getaways! "
"The house was absolutely amazing. Plenty of room for the whole family and perfect access to the beach. We arrived a day early and Mr Heflin was great at getting us into the house early without flaw. Will absolutely stay in this house again!!!"
"Loved the location on a super quiet inlet. Not many people on the beach, great views of the water, and you can hear the waves when the breeze picks up. House has tons of light and windows, charming screened porch and open deck. Gorgeous lower patio could use some furniture. There are a couple of windows in the master suite that could use some curtains. The bedrooms were a little dated but very comfortable. All four bedrooms had their own bathrooms. Jim Heflin, the manager, was super-helpful. I hope we can come back!"
"The location and view are incredible. Most of our time was spent on the screen porch enjoying the view and time together."
"What a home! We were so comfortable and pleased with this house. It is in a perfect location on the river side, yet steps to the ocean. The sunsets are incredible and the dolphins play just outside your windows. We spent every morning and night on the screened porch, which made our trip. Thanks for allowing us to create a wonderful family memory. We'll be back. "
"We had a great family vacation at Inlet Ave. The view is lovely and we spent the majority of our time on the porch enjoying the views. We already want to book it again for next year!"
"This location was a perfect location for our family vacation. Near the inlet but close enough to the ocean and also businesses. Didn't have any issues with noise from cars or other vacationers. House was clean and in good condition. Plenty of room for the 7 of us. Spent lots of time on the screened in deck and enjoying the view. Can't wait til next year. Glad this home was available."
"Thank you Tybee Cottages! My family had a great week at the beach! The house and view was wonderful. "
"Enjoyed the trip, looking forward to exploring Tybee Island again soon. The house was great only had a hard time figuring out the stove other than that property was as advertised, the downstairs bedroom could use some brightening up make it more inviting."
"Great service from the rental agent. Beautiful view from the porch. Clean, well designed house with all the amenities you need for a great beach vacation."
"the home was wonderful and the view spectacular
would stay here any time
"Tybee can be a bustling vacation spot, but the tip of the island is quiet, with fabulous sunsets and quick access to the beach. "
"wonderful and will be back next year"
"Great house and location. The large screened porch is awesome! The property is very well maintained. Enjoyed The Sundae Cafe, Tybee's best kept secret."
"Our vacation included people from 5 to 67. The location was ideal for all. The teens could easily walk or bike to the convenience store or to get a bite to eat. We were so close to the water, that it was easy to get back and forth. There was hardly a day that dolphins weren't entertaining us from the screen in porch, which, in my opinion, was the best feature of the house. Everything was clean. The kitchen was very well stocked with whatever pots, pans, or utensils you would need. Plenty of counter space. "
"Wonderful location. Beds were all comfortable. House could use some minor repairs(screen porch broken rail, etc) but maintenance requests were handled properly. Housekeeping appeared to miss many dust bunnies, otherwise clean. Bedrooms could use curtains to help block out morning light. 3 windows in master suite with no window covering at all. Easy beach walk with excellent swimming area. We would rent this house again."
"Great views of dolphins swimming, Nice house large master bedroom, everything you can ask for, walking distant of stores,food."
"WE have rented this home for at least 5 years now. We love it! The location is good- just around the 'corner' from the ocean, with a wonderful view of Little Tybee Island as well as the water. Watching the tides come and go from the screened in porch is guaranteed to relieve stress. Bedrooms are on three levels, so each couple/family can have some privacy with a common kitchen, Dr and LR. Basement level has it's own kitchen and walk-out brick patio. We love Tybee ,
1709 Inlet Avenue AND Jim Heflin, the realtor whom we have dealt with for years."
"Very Enjoyable and relaxing."
"Beautiful home, great location"
"Girls weekend getaway and this house was perfect for our group of 7. Enough room, big kitchen to cook, deck with a fantastic view. We were all really happy with this house, thank you!"
"Great views Walking distance shops, food."
"We've been renting from Tybee Cottages for close to 10 years, 1709 Inlet for most of those years. Owner Jim Heflin runs a good company, very professional and quick to fix a couple small repairs over the years. This year we found new kitchen range, and other newer items, which we enjoyed. We love this house, and will always ask for it- the perfect size for 6 adults and one 5 year old! The location offers gorgeous views of Little Tybee, the inlet and constantly changing sand bars and cloud formations."
"The house was in a great location with a grand view of the water. The grandkids went to the beach almost every day. I spent most of my time on the screened in porch watching the waves and the birds. We liked the way the house was laid out. With three floors we could separate or come together as a group. I would rent this place again."
Great. Outdoor shower full of debris but usable."
"Our families LOVE this house and it's location. We have been staying here for 7 years now. Previously several years at smaller Tybee Cottage rental. I can't say enough good things about Jim Heflin, the manager, and the owners. They are very responsive to any problems- repaired almost immediately. This year old window AC went out downstairs and was replaced the next day before 11am. We like cooking at 'home' and kitchen is well-stocked, altho I always bring my own spices and sharp knives.This time couldn't find lids that fitted larger pots, though. But that's a mere quibble to a glorious location where you can sit on screened porch and watch the tides roll in to inlet and across to Little Tybee Island, as well as ocean. MUCH less crowded here even on the weekends and ideal for small children as water is shallow and less rough. We will continue to come to 1709 Inlet Ave. as long as we're able!
"Have been returning to this home just because it is a great home and the location is perfect. The home is kept clean and being updated. The location has a beautiful view of the inlet and out to the ocean. Walking distance to the south end of town and also getting to the ocean. I would highly recommend it to anyone."
"Nice. quiet location, close to all the shops,food and bars. Loved the screen porch and water views."
"Location! Location! Location! Perfect!!!"
"The house was wonderful and views are magnificent, House was very clean and stocked with the basics (hand soap, toilet paper, tissues, dish soap, bath soap. Rental agent was easy to work with and quickly responded to all the details of the rental. W! will definitely be back. "
"Six candidates for a coastal kayaking certification course stayed at the house for 8 days. The house was beautiful, close to the beach for launching kayaks and had a great view of Tybee Creek and the coastal area we used for training."
"We have stayed here in the past and always enjoy the location, the property, and Tybee Cottages."
"We visit this property every year and continue to enjoy great family vacations!"
"Great Views from house , close to beach and walking distance to food, stores, pier. "
"Great place to stay on Tybee Island. Kids kayaked all day. Fantastic views from the deck. Upstairs master suite (wife and I used) with jacuzzi. Used it, nice.. Overall, would recommend to anyone.
Now, VERY minor critiques. Not enough not to stay again. Haven't had toilet paper like that since I was in the military. Jucuzzi kinda worked when it wanted to. As I said minor. Would stay again anytime.."
"MY FAMILY AND I WERE THERE THE FIRST WEEK OF OCTOBER 2018, VERY PEACEFUL AND HAD AN AWESOME VIEW AND AN AWESOME TIME. PLAN ON RETURNING AGAIN NEXT YEAR"
"Family Thanksgiving. Just right for 8 of us. Nice to have enough bathrooms and bedrooms. Perfect location if the weather had been a little nicer to enjoy being outside. The only complaint that I have is that there weren't washcloths in every bathroom."
"Everything was fabulous! Loved the location and the house itself! Right beside the public access walkway so quite a bit of foot traffic. The property is somewhat blocked off by trees so that wasn't an issue. We will definitely choose this house again!"
"Our 8th year at this house. We love it. The perfect location with views across the inlet to Little Tybee, spectacular sunsets, and just a a short walk on beach to the ocean proper. The scene changes every years as the sand bars shift so it's always new when we come. Kitchen well equipped. Great views from master suite on second floor which is huge."
"My family and I had a wonderful experience with out rental at 1709 Inlet Avenue. The house was exactly as expected and comfortable for 6 adults and 3 children. The house was clean and well maintained. My family has been vacationing at Tybee Island for 20+ years so we knew the area that we wanted to rent in. It is a short walk to stores and restaurants. We loved the easy access to the back was perfect for the kids. I would highly recommend this rental."
"We enjoy returning to this house multiple of times. It is cozy and close to the inlet. Comfy and in good condition. The management company is very responsive. Would highly recommend for a place to relax. "
