Benefits of staying at a Vacation Rental

Vacation home rentals are, hands down, the best way for you to enjoy a truly relaxing, rewarding and budget-friendly family vacation – one you’ll remember forever! Vacation homes give you the room to relax after a long day and provide unique and luxurious amenities and services versus the limited accommodations and space found at even the highest-rated resorts and hotels. And for some, vacation homes are a vacation unto themselves.

Book Direct & Save

OTAs such as Airbnb, VRBO, and Booking.com charge the guest extra fees during the booking process.  Guest can pay between 11% – 20% more by booking their reservations on these platforms!  Plus, by booking directly, the guest is able to communicate with a Vacation Planner who has local knowledge, they have more property choices as not all properties are listed on OTA sites, and they have access to special offers.

Dining – with full kitchens, you can make your own meals and snacks at a fraction of the cost you’d pay at restaurants and area attractions.

Entertainment – with private pools, community playgrounds, clubhouse movie theatres, game rooms and other unique amenities to enjoy, you’ll save big when staying in.

Accommodations – with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, you’ll keep your family or group together instead of spending more on additional rooms.

Beyond saving you money, vacation homes provide truly unique values you can’t put a price on:
Time for yourself and family to kick back and relax. Room for your group or family to play – indoors or out.
Lasting memories of a truly relaxing, one-of-a-kind vacation experience.

Exclusive Luxury, Unmatched Privacy

Vacation home rentals provide what resorts and hotels can’t – luxurious amenities like:
Private pools, spas, patios or decks, fireplaces, beach access, State-of-the-art home theatres. Multiple master suites and bedrooms. Game rooms with amenities like billiard tables, ping-pong, air hockey, board games and more. Full kitchens plus large and multiple dining areas. Entertainment and electronics amenities like TVs and DVD players throughout, computers with high-speed Wi-Fi internet access and even video game systems! When it comes to privacy, vacation homes are second to none.

Location, Location, Location

You’ll find vacation rentals in all locations on Tybee Island. Whether you’re looking for an oceanfront home or condo, a quiet beach cottage off the beaten track, vacation homes are the best choice for getting away from it all while staying close to the fun. All vacation home rentals on Tybee are just minutes away from your favorite sightseeing spots, attractions, the beach, restaurants, island galleries and shops and other vacation hot spots.

Renting from a Professional Property Management Company

When renting from a management company, guests enjoy additional benefits and services that are not typically offered by single homeowners, including a 24-hour customer service contact, concierge services, housekeeping, partnerships with local vendors, and sometimes the ability to search and reserve a home securely online. If a vacation home is not managed, the individual homeowner is responsible for the property’s maintenance, upkeep, and the customer service offered to renters, often as an absentee owner from other states or even countries abroad. Management companies handle all of this for individual homeowners, ensuring consistency and quality in both customer service and the level of accommodations. 

Professionally managed means...

On-site help, local staff & secure payment for a safe rental experience.
