"House was lovely even though it was the 3rd house from the beach and the houses around it were in need of some sprucing up."
"What a lovely beach house! A perfect spot for a relaxing vacation."
"It was an all girls weekend. My sisters, Mother and I stayed over Labor Day weekend. It was the first stay for each of us, but it won't be the last."
"Overall this was a great place to stay. The location was a very close walk to the beach. The parking situation was difficult, however managable. Plenty of places to sleep. Very high tech electronics and accommodations. We were very satisfied. "
"2 families. 4 kids. Perfect place to stay. Steps to beach. Appeared to be newly remodeled. Nice place to stay, especially for the price. "
"Propery very nice. First trip to Tybee & unhappy with no town planing & unfriendly town parking controls. Prefer planned resort community so will not return, but would recommend property management."
"The house itself was a beautiful surprise - the pics don't really do it justice. This was an extended family vacation, so we had adults as well as children ranging from 1 to 13 year olds. When we weren't all on the beach or exploring, the older kids loved using the 4th floor cupola as their "space" and the younger ones loved the hammock swings and fluffy couches in front of the surround sound tv's. The adults all enjoyed the easy layout and the ability to get away to our own space for privacy when needed. The house is not "on the beach", but may as well be, as it is so close that it felt on the beach. Perfect location that put us close enough to the pier to use island hoppers and close enough to Savannah & the wildlife park to have short rides there. The amenities were a plus, especially the elevator and the enclosed outdoor shower with hot/cold water. The only thing I would note is that the house is not baby/toddler friendly, so make sure you bring at least 3 baby gates if you have any small ones in your party. Jim w/property management was a gem throughout the entire process from booking through our stay. He went WAY above and beyond to try to help us be comfortable. We were all very sad to leave at the end of the week and are already planning the next visit!"
"I rented the house for a Christmas present for my two daughters families. We all had a great time. My eldest daughter told me it was one of the most relaxing vacations she had. If only the weather was a little warmer."
"Our stay on Tybee was made even better by staying at 5 Second Terrace. The main living area is on the third floor - providing excellent views of the ocean from both dining and living areas. The neighborhood is very quiet at night and the beach is a few steps away. Added pluses : hammock swings on porches, ping-pong table downstairs, beach toys in the closet, 360 degree view from the cupola & elevator for move in/out. I (unfortunately) had to work a bit one afternoon - but it was easy with the excellent wi-fi and printer/scanner/fax machine. "
"Clean, great amenities, super location (steps from the beach); friendly, professional service! May need to state 2 1/2 parking spaces instead of 3, or ask what type vehicles."
"This was out 24 anniversary trip to a new place. We truly enjoyed the house, and whoever decided to put the elevator in had a God sent idea. Didn't think I would use it that much. WRONG just about everyday especially with the groceries, after bike riding, and washing of the swim wear. Double plus for the HOT shower outside beat cold water any day. We made this a family vacation and the children ask every day what time are going to the beach. The short walk to the beach was great especially when you are trying to carry the things need. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we might do it again next year.
Jim was very helpful with the property, location, and even suggested a couple places to visit that I didn't have on the to do list.
Overall I can say that everyone had a great time and hated to have to come back to reality."
"We love 5 2nd terr. However, The couch and stuffed seating are beginning to show a lot of wear. Miss the balcony swings. The previous renters were not very considerate as the cleaning crew filled the trash to overflowing.
The management company was wonderful!!
Love the house - spacious, great location A perfect Family vacation."
"Picky items, need updated sauce and fry pans as averything stiks to them.
Issue with water in the bedrm during a Bad storm. Had to pull all the beds out. Cleaned up the water to mitigate damage to he hardwoods for the owner.
Nice location. Try sundae cafe, stay away from stink rays (sting,,,) horrible service, food. Felt the effects for a while after the fact....ugh ."
"Other than being hard to find (the house had no discernible number) it was GREAT! We loved the elevator-my parents are in their 80's and found it a nice 'extra'. We were 5 adults and the bed & bath arrangement was perfect. It was extremely close to the beach and away from the maddening crowd. Tybee is so easy to walk and we found most things to be within walking distance-either by beach or sidewalk. Thank you for sharing this wonderful spot. My mom said it was the most relaxing vacation she'd had in years and we all agreed! "
"we love Tybee and enjoyed staying here! the location is super convenient to beach! amenities were nice, especially the cool sound system. If it were mine, would have to have a high daybed in lookout for naps and reading! "
"We had a wonderful vacation on Tybee. The location was great for us. This home was the perfect size and layout for our needs. Loved the outdoor shower Hope to be able to return to Tybee soon! "
"Wonderful! We really miss the swing chairs that were on the upper porches 2 years ago. This was our familt's 3rd year at 5 2nd Terr. The elevator is fantastic for Granny."
"Great house in a great location. Steps away from the ocean with ocean views. House was clean and perfect for my family."
"This is a casual beach home perfect for extended families or a group of friends. The elevator is so helpful for moving in/out and bringing in groceries for your stay. Beautiful sunrises awake those on the north side of the home every morning and the south side balconies are perfect for happy hour. Guests should bring a blow dryer as there are none provided. Otherwise, everything you need is right here. Be aware that as with all beachfront property, your neighbors are very close. "
"We had a great time here with extended family. Not sure there is much they could improve."
"The Vacation got off to a rough start when our flight was delayed and we missed our adjoining flight, the Management Staff, Jim Heflin, went out of his way to help us when we did not arrive until 1:30 am. The house was beautiful and the location could not have been any better. The elevator was big help since my wife is in a wheelchair and also after a day of exploring. The views from the many windows were breath taking. I would highly recommend this location for an unforgettable vacation, we hope to come back next year with the rest of the family."
"Don't miss out on this great vacation home. It's steps away from the beach (on the beach side of Bulter Ave) on Tybee Island. The beds are comfy, the house is very clean and well appointed. Jim with Tybee cottages delivers some of the best customer service I have ever experienced. If you don't rent this house, please still consider renting from Tybee cottages, you won't regret it."
"We had a wonderful stay at this property on Memorial Day weekend! The house is very light and bright, and has a view of the ocean from all the main living areas and decks. The owners and/or management keep the house in great condition and spotlessly clean. Very short walk to the beach with no roads to cross. And the beach here is nice and wide - plenty of room to play! The bottom level of the home is great for dropping off beach chairs and sandy flip flops, and we loved the ping pong table there too. The elevator worked well, as did the whole-house speaker system. There is a manual in the house that explains how everything works, which was also helpful. It is just a short walk to some restaurants and a convenience store. If we plan another trip to Tybee in the future we would certainly stay at 5 Second Terrace again. "
"Very pleased. Great location. Wish we had more time!"
"This house was just the perfect place for a family or friends get away. We enjoyed the great floor plan, all the amenities and the location. The home was clean and neat and ready for relaxation. The property manager was wonderful to work with. Everything we needed was there and more. I am so looking forward to planning our next family outing and staying here at this beautiful beach house."
"We loved our beach house in Tybee. It was literally a 60 second walk to the sand and we could see the ocean from our balconies. The house was perfect for the eight of us and was beautiful. "
"It was a wonderful experience. It was clean with lots of amenities. We enjoyed our stay. Thanks!"
"This is our 2nd trip to, 5 Second Terrace it is great for beach lovers, short walk to the beach. outside hot/cold shower, or just to hose off the sand. We made great use of the ping pong table. Great views of the ocean from the living area and especially from the top floor copula. The elevator was definitely a plus. Wifi was excellent. Short walk to ice cream, gas station, restaurants. We watched the 4th of July fireworks from the beach! Jim Heflin is easy to work with and will take care of all your concerns."
"What a wonderful week at 5 Second Terrace! Great Beach House for multi-generational vacation. Great Location, Home well-maintained and the "lay out" was perfect. Tybee Cottages was a huge help - very prompt in taking care of anything we needed. Thank you for a great week!"
"My brother owns a house at Tybee Island and this was a family Thanksgiving celebration. The location of the rental house was close to my brother's house with some of the rooms having a view of the ocean. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable. The elevator worked fine and was an essential asset for us to use this house. There were no coat hangers in any of the bedrooms and after going to several stores, we could find none. We finally found coat hangers that were broken but usable at a Dollar Store. If you have little children be careful of the top of the stairs. Be sure to bring your own supply of paper products and soap."
