There are three main areas for Tybee Island oceanfront rentals – the popular pier, which is just steps away from parking, and Tybrisa where you’ll find souvenir shops, snack bars, dive bars, sports pubs, and lunch spots. This area of the beach is where larger groups tend to gather.
Mid Beach is a little quieter but does involve some walking to your car and beach amenities.
Finally, North Beach, near the lighthouse, is popular with families and has a large car park.
Let’s find out which rental is right for your vacation!
Tybee Island Oceanfront Rentals Near The Pier
Hotel Tybee (1401 Strand Ave) is a popular beachfront accommodation offering rooms with a view, two outdoor pools, free bike rental, and one parking space per booking.
Unless your rental offers a space, visitors have to pay for all-day parking on Tybee, a complaint made by many, so this is a great bonus.
Rooms start at 205 sq ft, accommodating one to five guests, some rooms face inland, while others have full or partial view of the ocean.
Amenities also include a microwave, a refrigerator, a coffee/tea maker, air-conditioning, an iron/ironing board, and a flat-screen TV with digital channels.
The hotel is less than a five-minute walk from the popular restaurants and bars on Butler Ave and Tybrisa Street.
Beach Haven Cottage
Beach Haven Cottage (6 17th St) offers a home-away-from-home experience by the beach.
Just steps from the sand, this house is located at Ocean Block/Butler Avenue, less than a minute’s walk to Fannie’s on the Beach and all of the bars at Tybrisa.
Tybee Pier, with its snack and licensed bar, is located minutes away by foot, which some visitors love and others don’t enjoy so much.
If you prefer a quieter beach, see our North or Mid Beach sections.
The cottage sleeps eight – two bedrooms with king beds, one bedroom with a queen bed, one loft with two twin beds, two bathrooms, a fully equipped, kitchen, and a private deck.
Personally, I love a deck. One of the highlights of my Tybee vacation was listening to the wild, lapping waves while reading my book in privacy.
Amenities also include air-conditioning, Wi-Fi, a Smart TV with cable, a barbecue grill, and off-street parking for three cars.
Remember to pack your beach towels and gear.
Sea and Breeze Hotel and Condo
If this sounds like your kind of vacation – wake up, grab a breakfast bagel on Tybrisa, buy a few cold beers for the cooler at Dizzy Deans, settle at the beach ’til the night comes in then bar hop along Butler before some shut-eye, consider the Sea and Breeze Hotel and Condo (16 Tybrisa Street).
Room amenities include air-conditioning, a microwave, a small refrigerator, and cable TV, and parking is free.
There is also a guest pool.
If you prefer a cottage that is a little more secluded from the partying that goes on near the pier, consider the restored 1930s Sandpiper (15 18th Ter).
This two-bed, one-bath, plus kitchen (minus dishwasher) sleeps up to four people and can accommodate one small car for free parking.
Amenities also include air conditioning, Wi-Fi, and a patio.
This oceanfront Tybee Island rental is less than a five-minute walk from the southern tip of Tybee where you can catch incredible sunsets.
Be sure to check out AJ’s for dinner at dusk too, I am still dreaming of the sweet potato fries and cinnamon butter.
Whoah, Oceanview Mansion (8 18th St) is something else.
This Tybee Island holiday rental is a stone’s throw from the beach and has an ocean-view balcony and swimming pool.
Plus, six bedrooms, three bathrooms, a flat-screen TV with satellite channels, a dining area, a full kitchen, and parking.
Similar to Sandpiper above, Oceanview Mansion is close to Tybee Creek’s sunset spot.
Looking for Tybee Island oceanfront rentals with a pool?
Whispering Palms (1700 Inlet Ave) sleeps 13 in its six-bed, five-bath vintage beach home, and has an outdoor pool.
Dating back to 1926, this historic home has been lovingly modernized and features a landscaped garden, fire pit, and screened porches.

Whispering Palms is also a pet-friendly holiday home, so your furry friends don’t have to miss out.

Mid-Beach Tybee Rentals For The Quieter Beach Experience
DeSoto Hotel (212 Butler Ave) is just a short stroll down to the beach.
There’s also a small outdoor pool and games room.
Rooms feature cable TV, a refrigerator, and a microwave, and some rooms enjoy ocean-facing balconies.
Free continental breakfast is included in the price.
Beachside Colony Resort
Beachside Colony (404 Butler Ave) holds the title of the only oceanfront resort in Tybee.
It offers one to three-bedroom condos, some with beachfront balconies.
Located between Tybee Island Light Station & Museum and the Pier, this resort has its own beachfront access, heated pool, and restaurant with beach bar onsite.
Check out an example of a condo on VRBO.
The Deck, the hotel’s bar, is always bustling and serves delicious cocktails that can be enjoyed while the sun goes down and fairy lights turn on.
If you are familiar with Charleston, you may have had brunch at The Collins Quarter Forsyth.
Well, the CQ owners have kitted out The Deck to the same standards as The Collins Quarter and CQ Forsyth.
Cool tip: we were chatting to a a honeymooning couple at the Beachside Colony who told us that they had seen bioluminescent glow-in-the-dark activity in the water!
A quick note, while this oceanfront rental is dog-friendly, Tybee Island beaches are not.
