We were totally surprised at how beautiful and how large this house was. We needed space for 13 and we had sleeping spots left over. The ping pong table, pool table and all the games for our teens and adults were a huge hit. We kind of have a ping pong competition in our family so this may have been the biggest item that sold us on this house. Our son actually sent his Dad a specially ordered paddle for their games weeks before we got there. Thank you so much for the work you've put in the decor because it certainly showed your beautiful choices. Absolutely recommend to large families, especially for the children.
This house is great! It has everything you need for a great vacation. We had a group of 12 who fit very comfortably. The pool was really nice and the outdoor shower was a favorite of many. The beach and lighthouse were in walking distance. Everything was really clean and the house decor was beautiful. We had a few small issues with the firepit and bathroom sinks which were attended to the same day that i contacted them. We also had an issue with the AC in the front half of the house. That was attended to by the maintence man but they needed to send an HVAC guy out to fix it so it was pretty warm on that side for 2 days. Once it was fixed it felt great! I would highly recommend this house as well as Tybee Vacation Rentals. I would also stay here again!
We were looking for something bigger and booked the Beach Bum Inn last year after our stay at another TVR home, that was getting to small for us. In Feb 2018 when I looked at the home again I was greatly surprised that there was a pool being added! When my family and I arrived this Aug, we were blown away on how big this place really is( you will need a golf cart to go from one end to the other). The pictures don't do it justice online. The location to the North Beach was awesome. With the addition to the fencing, we were excited that our little Chi's had a safe place to roam. The screened in porch with game tables was a great place for all of us to gather and chill as well as the pool table inside the house. We loved the pool and hung out at it as much as we hung out at the beach. I could go on and on. Now for my negative on the property and the only reason I say this is because of the jump in rate for next year 2019. I believe that the property owner should invest in some new appliances, especially the dishwasher and some updating on the showers in all the rooms. I also think that some sort of reconfiguration of the laundry room would also be a plus. Again we really enjoyed our time at this place, it's just that for the new updated price, I would like to see some newer appliances and some modern updates to the showers. Kevin Tate
My family, along with my two sisters and their children plus my parents had a great week at this house. It was so nice to spend a vacation together as we live in different states. Even at full occupancy the house was comfortable. The teenagers enjoyed the games in the enclosed porch and playing pool inside. We all spent a lot of time in the outdoor pool which is nicely shaded on one end. The privacy fence and outdoor shower were great. This house is truly a hidden gem! We were a little disappointed that the bicycles were not for guest use; nevertheless, it was such a great location. We could easily walk to the North Beach to enjoy the sunrises and sunsets.It is close to the Lighthouse and small gift shops featuring local artists' works. We will definitely want to return to Tybee Island and this house!
The house was amazing! We stayed with 16 girls for a bachelorette party and all had plenty of room. The pictures online were impressive, but in person the house was stunning. The house is a bit hidden, which is great for privacy and noise, but if you're taking Uber's/taxis around town, they had a difficult time finding us. The only complaint I have is one of the bedrooms and half of the back kitchen lost power very early on in our trip. Despite contacting the main office several times, it was not fixed by the time we left. I understand that it was an electrical issue, but it was inconvenient for a good portion of our guests and it did not seem like a priority to have it fixed by anyone in the main office. For a large group, the property is definitely worth the price.
The Beach Bum Inn was a great place to stay for our large group of guys. Lots of space and activities for everyone to stretch out and enjoy.
We loved it..house was great..kids had a blast..will be back for sure!!! Beach, food, capt . Derrick AWESOME
Had a great time at the beach bum on tybee island. Enjoyed all the sightseeing lighthouse forts downtown Savannah
The Beach Bum Inn was a perfect weekend getaway. Though small on the outside, the inside was spacious and adorable. We loved the extra additions of the ping pong and pool table to round out a fun place! Also, the beach walk is two blocks and North Beach was perfect for a relaxing atmosphere! The staff at TVR have been so helpful and their attention to detail with this vacation app is amazing! I have always had all my questions answered! All in all, we have been very pleased with our stay!
We really enjoyed our stay. There were 16 of us with plenty of room. We were comfortable able to visit, play cards and shot some pool. My children, grandchildren and our 104 year grandmother came for a wedding, my neice from Savannah got married. Grandkids got to see and play in the ocean. We will be back and will come here to stay when we do.
It’s a long story on how we got to this little blessing in disguise! Covid put us back a year for our trip and then our 1st home downtown Savannah was sold and only had two months to find a new home! Boy we are so happy this all happened to get us to the Beach Bum Home!! The home was a vacation in itself for a family (Girls Trip) of 12. We had a wide range of ages but the home was perfect for all which was a plus to have it all on 1 floor with no stairs! Had plenty of open space and lots of room to move around even though we all liked being in 1 room together! Our favorite hangout was the two large swings and yes all 12 of us fit in that area!! Beds were comfortable, nice quiet area and the home was equipped with everything you needed for the week we were there especially the two kitchens! Another wonderful thing about this home was the closeness to the beach! Easy walk to the North Beach Entrance and Tybee lighthouse! Easy check in and easy checkout. Staff friendly and quick to respond with questions we had. We loved every minute of our time spent here and are blessed to have found this blessing in disguise!
This house was everything and more! We stayed for 6 nights with 10 people: 2 couples, 4 boys ages 9, 7, 3, & 2, and 2 girls ages 7 & 6. This house is so spacious, each couple had their own master bedrooms and each child had their own queen or twin bed. There were full bathrooms attached to every bedroom which allowed for everyone to have their privacy. The kids LOVED the game room, we played A LOT of ping pong and used the pool table everyday as well. And the swimming pool, WOW, that was essential for our group of 6 kids under 10 years old. We spent hours and hours in the swimming pool! It was a perfect temperature for swimming and it was a salt water pool, which I prefer. A staff member from “the pink team” came and cleaned our pool mid-stay. The house was clean, comfortable, and cool; there are 2 air conditioners working to keep the house cool on the hot summer days. The house is secluded and private and it is only 2 blocks from the beach, easy to walk. Thank you Pink Team, we had an amazing vacation thanks to the wonderful Beach Bum Inn. If we come back to Tybee, we will be staying at this house again!!
It was a wonderful place to spend our 50th wedding anniversary with our family who traveled from Florida, North Carolina, California and Warrensburg , NY. If we weren’t enjoying the ocean we loved the pool. Pool table, ping pong table, corn hole boards and just enjoying our time together. It is a short walk to the lighthouse, ocean and Marine Center. We really enjoyed our stay.

Example: "Is the balcony screened in?" or "Is there a toaster oven?"
We have a big group coming from multiple places. Is there any flexibility in the parking?
There is enough room to park 5 cars back to back (first car in, is last car out). If you need extra parking spaces, we recommend the North Beach parking lot near the Lighthouse. You can download the TYB parking app. From 8am-8pm you do have to pay.
Do you provide wood for the firepit?
We do not provide wood. but several of the local grocery stores in the area sell bundles of wood.
