Description Description
Enjoy beautiful views of the creek, salt marsh, and sunsets from Creekside Captains Retreat, a uniquely built vacation home that is set back only 5 feet from Horsepen Creek. This one of a kind home was built to mimic the inside of a ship and offers many special touches from the woodwork to the doors, high ceilings, and decking. The builder of the home was a locally based sea captain who piloted vessels around the world and wanted a tranquil retreat back home.

Guests will enjoy the feel of almost floating above the creek while enjoying views of the water, fish, and sea birds. A great bonus is the detached screened porch on the ground level right on the waterline. This space is set-up perfectly for relaxation - enjoy drinks, dinner, a good book, all while observing the wildlife enjoying the salt marshes. There is even a gas grill right off the screened porch for cookouts, a fishing platform, and a hot/cold outdoor shower.

Creekside Captains Retreat offers a perfect setting for small family vacations or romantic couples getaways on Tybee Island. The main entrance of the home is on the second floor. Guests are welcomed by beautiful oak flooring throughout the living spaces and guest bedroom. The living room includes a sleeper sofa along with a flat-screen TV and great views of the marsh and sunsets. The kitchen is well equipped and includes a dishwasher. There is also a storage room available to place your beach gear and bikes. The bathroom is accessible from both the kitchen and primary bedroom and offers a walk-in shower with a sauna-like feel as well as an all-in-one washer/dryer. The primary bedroom features vaulted ceilings and lots of windows that really take advantage of the setting. It is well furnished with a King bed and a flat-screen TV. The guest bedroom offers 2 Twin size beds and TV. The deck overlooking the marsh is accessible from both bedrooms.

Don't miss a chance to experience Tybee Island in this special setting! This property is perfect for nature and animal lovers, as well as bird watchers. Guests will love the fantastic views from every angle! Enjoy the pristine marsh views from the privacy of the home, and take in the sunsets from the private deck over the marsh.

Creekside Captains Retreat includes parking for 2 cars. Bringing a boat or kayak trailer? Call for approval. Wireless Internet is available for guest use.

Wonderful stay! Loved how peaceful and quiet it was! Loved all the thought that went into the design of this property making it so unique and unlike any other place to stay.

What a unique and interesting unit!! My five year old and I had a great time. There was one of everything you need in the kitchen and the bed was super comfy!! It was rainy and cold and the views of the marsh were stunning from inside he living room!! Centrally located for all our needs and the staff was stellar in their response to any request! Would highly recommend this unit and this agency!!

I would like to start off by saying that we loved the Creekside Cabin and love Tybee Island! My children and I traveled from Ohio by plane to do what many will never have to do. I lost my 16 year old daughter Olivia in a car accident on January 17, 2017, our hearts are broken and we needed a vacation terribly. In 2014 Olivia and I took a road trip to Florida and we ended up in Tybee somehow, we both loved it here so this was the spot that I wanted my children and I to be at on the 6 month mark of her passing. This place has helped us in our healing process and we have felt so close to her here. I have spent many hours out on the patio, which has been so helpful in spiritually and mentally healing me. My little family has much enjoyed our stay here and can't wait to come back! Thank you!

This place was awesome!!!! SO relaxing!!! Can't wait to book our next trip here!! The island was like a step back in time away from the hustle and bustle. Couldn't afford to live here though. The seafood restarants would kill us!! $$$$

We really enjoyed our stay at Captains Retreat. The house was very cozy and comfortable. I would recommend adding some patio furniture on the balcony so people can take advantage of the beautiful view. Other than that, we were very satisfied with our visit!

Place was really unique and perfect for a small family. Interior was really cozy. Exterior looked like it was not quite finished which was odd. Great little place in a fantastic location!

Great property with a wonderful view! The only draw back to our stay was not being able to completely use the deck. We would love to come back to Tybee again.

Cozy retreat
I booked this for my family of 4 which had 2 teens. This is a cozy and comfortable place. Every bit of space is well designed and appointed. Kitchen has all the things you would need. They even had a blender. Covered patio has a grill, outdoor shower and beach stuff. The balcony/look out can be accessed via both the bedrooms. Its THE BEST place to relax. We saw see plenty of marine birds. We saw egrets and cormorants. We were also lucky to see three dolphins cruise by! There is something soothing to watch the tide go up and down from the balcony.

Peace on the Creek
If you want to imagine you are on a boat traveling the world but in reality anchored in a creek, enjoying morning coffee surrounded by breathtaking peace and quiet, except for bird songs, This is your place. A beautiful deck to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sunset adds to the reasons why we enjoyed our stay. Friendly, helpful staff makes check-in so easy. Very clean, cute decor, a few quirks (bathroom). Close to beach, many restaurants. There are steps to entry, so a bit difficult if a handicap or elderly. Would return in a minute!
