“Another Wonderful Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2011

We just spent six nights at Tybee Island Inn for the third time in 12 months. Once again we stayed in the charming Flamingo Room which is perfect for us and our three tiny chihuahuas. At the entrance to the door of the room is a patio with porch swing which is convenient for us and a welcome rest after a day on the beach. Kathy's breakfasts are always interesting and delicious! We had a different, plentiful and delicious breakfast for six mornings in a row! We enjoy the view from the front porch with huge moss draped oak trees forming a canopy over the gardens and waterfalls. This place is simply enchanting to us and we are always welcomed to feel at home. We can't imagine staying anywhere else and as long as they keep at least one pet friendly room, we won't have to. The online pictures don't do the place justice, because upon arrival you feel transformed somewhere else. We'll be back again in the Spring and we're already looking forward to it!

To note: I HAVEN'T STAYED HERE YET - but I visited yesterday and got a tour of the B&B with the opportunity to see ALLL the rooms. I have chosen a package offered by the Inn that includes renting the entire Inn for the weekend and having a beach wedding -among other services). Myself, my fiance', and my entire wedding party will be staying together over the weekend here and I frankly cannot WAIT to stay! It is located in the Ft. Screven area. It's an older home, very charming, beautifully decorated, and well-kept. The grounds are breathtaking! It's surrounded by beautiful gardens, a large fountain, seating areas, and the entire front yard is blanketed by a HUGE tree covered in long streamers of hanging moss, giving a secluded feel to the place. Miss Jackie Manos is the wedding coordinator there and she is FABULOUS! She was attentive to my needs, receptive to changes / odd requests, and anticipated things I had not thought of yet! She immediately put me at ease and I feel glad to put much of the details of my most special day into her capable hands! They are altogether such a great group -they even have our "save the date" magnet up on their personal refrigerator! I can't wait to give Tybee Island Inn a second "excellent" review after I have had the pleasure of actually staying overnight and having my wedding on the sand at Tybee!

My friend and I headed to Tybee for a girl's quick getaway. The Inn's entrance sells it. So charming, terrific porch, peaceful surroundings. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was just OK, a bit warm. It had everything you could need, except maybe a little blanket so you don't have to use the old, heavy comforter. The breakfast, although delcious, wasn't gourmet or plentiful, but good. The location was perfect. Less than 10 minute walk to beach. Not in the downtown shop area, which was good. They provide beach towels and chairs--nice touch. We had kitchen access to get a quick snack, coffee, tea, etc. Overall, nice stay.

A beautiful, cozy, and very welcoming and friendly place to stay. Renovated old house splashed with creativity and things to read / explore in every corner. Kathy cooks a mean breakfast, sets out wine and cheese in the afternoon, and has lots of good info about the island. only downside: upstairs was not quite cool enough, but the fan provided does the trick.

Room Tip: each room has a different theme, very cute, we stayed in one upstairs which was nice for honeymooner...

It was better than being at home with all of the items supplied, suntan lotion. beach towels, hats , unbrellas, bicycles, books etc, The staff was terrific, the breakfast was wonderful, the rooms adorable. In the evening there was wine and all the guests sat around talked for hours. The only problems was that our schedule only has there for one night.

We came from Texas, really sight unseen, to this B&B! Kathy, the manager, was AMAZING and made us feel right at home from the time we walked in!! Every possible need was met, and she even scolded us for using our own towels instead of the B&B's, so ours would stay clean for our drive home!

Also, from the time we parked and entered the yard, there was a calm on this property!

Oh, and the beach is literally a couple of minutes walk away!!! The tub in the Sea Cabin was AMAZING! Breakfast was fresh, hot, and AMAZING! It wasn't just a cheapy breakfast; it was wonderful and delicious! Every SINGLE need was met and we just felt like we were at home from start to finish!!

The ONLY thing that was disappointing was that we decided to stay another night while there, and they were BOOKED SOLID!!! We will be BACK to TYBEE, and to this B&B as often as we possibly can! We just LOVE it!

We have stayed at other, better, B&B's for less money and came away wanting to return. This Inn was lacking in amenities and ambience commensurate with the nightly cost. However, this was greatly offset by the charming Inn Keeper Kathy, who made our stay enjoyable. If only the owners would invest in some better decorating and services (ie: ice for the room) this would be a place to come back to.
