The Tybee Island Sea Turtle Season has begun and it’s a wonderful time to visit! Our sea turtles are some of our most beloved visitors this time of year, so here are a few tips to show them sea turtle love!
We ask that our property owners change their outdoor lighting to turtle friendly bulbs and install proper blinds and shades to block out interior lights. Please keep all light sources and reflections off the beach by using light shields, blinds or by keeping fixtures low to the ground. Only use red LED flashlights and headlights on the beach at night. Lights and fires may discourage sea turtles from nesting and lead baby turtles away from the water.
Please take beach furniture, cabanas, tents, and ALL beach equipment with you when leaving the beach. Do not store anything on the beach or in the dunes. Beach equipment may harm, disturb, or trap nesting or baby sea turtles and disturb the dune system.
Please clean up and pick up any litter, whether it’s yours or not. Litter can harm sea life and disturb nesting sea turtles.
For more information about our fantastic island ecology and the importance of Tybee Island as a barrier island, please visit the Tybee Island Marine Science Center and/or schedule an ecology tour. Celebrating our sea turtles is a fabulous way to experience our Tybee Joy!

The Beach Bum Parade might surprise the unsuspecting visitor. Like most parades, there are floats pulled behind cars and trucks. Unlike most parades, however, the floats, often trailers or boats, are filled with water-throwing paraphernalia. Spectators, lined up along the parade route on Butler Avenue, armed with buckets, squirt guns and hoses. What results is an all-out water war for fun loving beach bums of all ages.
Tips for our guests:
If you are arriving and checking in to your cottage on Friday, May 18th, you will want to try and arrive around 4:00 PM or after 8:00 PM, especially if you are staying mid-island and will need to travel down Butler Avenue or Jones Avenue. Also, just to make you aware if you are not already….you will want to stay away from Butler Avenue during the duration of the parade if you prefer not to get wet because if you do go down in the parade route area, you will for sure get wet!
It’s another great week of our Tybee Joy!
The joy of our island living aways gets better as you cross the Lazaretto Creek Bridge and pull up to your home away from home. Just feel the layers of stress and care and worry peel away and fly out the window, as you get ready to live like a local!
One of the best homes to get that tropical feel is our ! Just three blocks to the mid-island beach, this 3 bedroom/2 bath ground level cottage couldn’t be easier for seaside living.
Imagine an open space with two living rooms and a private secluded back yard. Fantasize it’s steps from the beach and shopping and restaurants, yet relaxing and quiet. Envision a big bright kitchen and soaring ceilings. Dream of a place where the master bedroom is on one side of the house for privacy and the other two bedrooms on the other side of the house for loved ones. Be awed at a large front yard for playing outside and chairs for sitting and reading.
Snap out of it! It’s not just a fantasy! You won’t have to imagine…you’ll have it all at Tybee Seahorse Cottage. You will love our decor and our layout. You will want to come back again and again. Tybee Seahorse Cottage will be your favorite getaway…that is close to everything.

You’ll love the beautiful pink colors of our Tybee sunrises and sunsets and now you can even help Paint Tybee Pink!
On May 5th, come enjoy an afternoon into evening 10K walk in beautiful Tybee Island (5k option available as well)! There will even be a Sunset Ceremony at Fisherman’s Walk pier, then each walker will receive a pink glow stick and will travel the last mile along the beach (optional). The walk will finish at the Tybee Pier and Pavilion with a Celebration of Life Party complete with TropRock artist Jim Asbell playing on the Pier!
There’s a $50 registration fee with no fund raising minimum and anyone who raises at least $500 will get their registration fee waived!! Fund raising is the lifeblood of any charitable organization, so fund raising and sponsorships are strongly encouraged to help make a bigger impact on the cancer community in Coastal Georgia! The event also needs crew members to come out and help the walkers along their journey, so if you can’t walk, please consider volunteering as a crew member.
Proceeds from Paint Tybee Pink will be specifically set up to provide direct assistance to patients battling breast cancer. Many of these worthy recipients may be hourly workers who have to take time off from their job for surgery, recovery, and follow up treatment. This sometimes puts them in a circumstance where not enough income is there to cover their monthly obligations. Breast cancer patients fighting for their lives against this disease do not need the added stress of worrying about financial obligations they were able to meet before breast cancer struck!
Proceeds from this walk will benefit LibLines Breast Cancer Fund at the Curtis and Elizabeth Anderson Cancer Institute of Memorial University Medical Center, Savannah, GA. Come join us and let’s Paint Tybee Pink! Give me a call and I’ll help you choose just the right beach house or condo, so you’ll be close to the action!

If you’ve never joined us for our wine festival just give me a call. It’ll be a JOY to help you select just the right beach home for your visit!
Did you know that Tybee Island has been honored as a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists?
Well, it’s true and by earning this designation we have joined an elite group of communities across the United States. After careful review and consultation with local cyclists, the League recognized Tybee Island at the Bronze level, celebrating the City of Tybee Island’s commitment to bicycling. Tybee is one of 179 communities in 44 states recognized by the League of American Bicyclists and one of only two communities in Georgia to earn this four-year honor.
I enjoy seeing my Tybee friends and visitors out riding the island’s bike routes and on the beach throughout the year. But, remember this is Tybee, so don’t be surprised when you see someone towing their kayak or a small boat on a trailer behind their bike. You’ll also be impressed at the bikes that are decorated with flowers and lights and that have unusual horns. Heck, you’re just as liable to see island residents arrive by bike at social events, all decked out in their finery. Most of our bikes have their own cup holders, but just remember to fill them with plastic cups only.
You don’t even have to worry about choosing which friends to join you on a bike ride. Invite all of your friends and hop on the Tybee Island Slow Ride! It really comes in handy if you’re someone who can’t pedal and drink from your plastic cup at the same time. Just hop on, pedal when you can and let the driver worry about keeping it in the road.
I’m all about the joy of managing the business of each day. There’s always an email or a phone call that is waiting for a response. I make it a point to check on our beautiful beach homes and condos and touch base with our wonderful staff. I look to hear from our guests, both checking in and checking out, to make sure I’ve met their expectations. It’s the business I’ve chosen and the business I love. I’ve also learned I have to make time to be about the business of things that give me joy, too.
Tybee Island is a beautiful barrier island and today is just one of those days when I get great joy from walking the island and checking to see how it’s doing. Our beautiful beaches are a given and there’s no more wonderful sight than to watch families and couples and children and friends as they enjoy the waves or just lay about in the sun.
For me, it’s all about wandering off the beach and strolling along the paths and trails that connect the different parts of the island. Little cuts that draw my eyes out among the Spartina grass and nest sightings up among the trees. Sometimes, walking with good friends who share the joys of island living and other times just listening for the quiet whisperings of nature’s conversations with the wind and sun and waves.
Yes, I’ve learned a very important part of my day includes the business of finding joy in my life, so that I can continue to find joy in the business of taking care of our island, our homes, our guests and all those that come my way. These are some of the joys of my day and I can’t wait for you to get here to share them with me!
