A Beach Vacation on Tybee Island

beach vacationHow does swimming, surfing, kayaking, fishing, paddle boarding, or snorkeling sound? If it sounds like something you would enjoy you’ll want to consider a beach vacation within a community that can offer you all of these activities. Fortunately, you are able to do this on Tybee Island. Tybee, is located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean just a half hour drive east from historical downtown Savannah Georgia.

Vacationing in Tybee is, without a doubt, more than adequate to provide you with everything you’re looking for in a vacation getaway, good food, great people and fantastic weather. If you’re looking to making your beach vacation all that it can be, you should consider renting a beachfront condo on the island. A beachfront condo is the perfect addition to any Tybee vacation, particularly if you want your vacation to focus on the beach and the many beach activities available.

A number of condos, especially in the mid section of the island are newer and have many modern amenities. The island condos can accommodate almost any size family with 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units available. Newer units come with flat panels TV’s, Bluray players, Ipod docks, granite counters, and stainless appliances. What’s great about condos is the manner in which they resemble a vacation home with separate bedrooms, bathrooms, family rooms, dining areas, and kitchens and many are furnished well. In addition, most of the beachfront condos have private balconies with fantastic views of the beach and ocean. For added convenience, a few of the complexes have heated pools and an on-site restaurant.

As you may expect, Tybee’s beach front condos are highly rated and well recommended. For that reason, there are a fair number of travelers, each year that reserve a condo on the island. If you intend to visit the island during the summer months, you are urged to make your reservations well in advance. In fact, many visitors make their reservations for a beachfront condo as much as a year in advance. There are only a few quality condo complexes with beachfront access available, so you don’t want to wait till the last minute to make a reservation.

To reserve a Tybee beachfront condo, you have a number of different options. You can often book through one of the islands property management companies, through VRBO, (Vacation Rentals by Owner) or possibly by working directly with the owner. Many of the properties can be viewed online, with details and pictures of the properties available.

If you want to add a little extra to your next vacation, I recommend a visit to Tybee Island and a stay in a beachfront condo. Quite honestly, there’s nothing better than sitting on a private balcony, drinking your morning cup of coffee and watching the sunrise over the Atlantic.  It doesn’t really matter how you go about reserving your condo as long as you do it well in advance. Once you’ve stayed in a condo on the beach you’ll never want to stay anywhere else.
