Description

Drift Inn is a circa 1958 beach cottage which offers guests all the modern touches but still keeps that classic beach cottage charm! The home is 4 bedrooms and 2 baths and sleeps up to 10, and you can even bring your dog! Located on Chatham Avenue in Tybee's Back River neighborhood just steps away from the Back River fishing pier and beach. You are also just a couple of blocks from Tybee's most popular kayak launch point, Alley 3.

The main living area of the home offers a fully open layout with kitchen, dining space, and living area all-in-one. The kitchen is fully equipped including dishwasher and washer and dryer and a dining table offering seating space for 10. Just off the living area is a comfy screened porch perfect for relaxing and outdoor dining. The home is pet-friendly and offers a fully fenced yard which is accessible either from the porch or front door. There is also a gas grill for your vacation cookouts!

Drift Inn offers a great split bedroom plan. The back two King bedrooms are each separated from the front bedrooms by two full bathrooms with walk-in showers. The front 2 Guest bedrooms are both furnished with one Double and one Twin bed. Both beds in these two bedrooms have new memory foam mattresses (installed in 2017). This set-up offers a nice sense of privacy for guests.

This home is located in a great location, as it is just a short stroll to Tybee's main business district. Located within a short 4-5 block walk are the Tybee Pier and Pavilion, Tybee Marine Science Center, and many shops, restaurants, and night spots. Just park your car and enjoy Tybee on foot or bike for your entire vacation!

We loved our stay at the Drift Inn! Quick walk to the beach and town, right by the fishing pier, steps away from the incredible sandbar...great location! The house was equipped with many of the comforts of home. Wed highly recommend!

We have stayed at the Drift Inn several times. We adore this little beach house. It's perfect for our family. We love how close it is to the back river fishing pier. Can't wait to come back next year.

Celebrating my 50th birthday and enjoying family good times. The drift end was surprisingly bigger than what you see in the pics. Plenty of room for everyone- walking distance was even great for our little ones. Everything was great!!

Great place to kick back on vacation. Looks kind of small on the outside but it has 4 big bedrooms and it accomodated two large families with ease. Open area with kitchen and living room is great for entertaining. Short walk to the fish pier to watch the sunset was a great ritual with the locals. AJ's ( restaurant ) is a short walk if you dont want to worry about drinking and driving. They have really great food. It is a great cottage with lots of charm.

Location-Charm-Spacious-Cute-Clean-Relaxing-Perfection! I was one of 7 girls staying for a long weekend at the Drift Inn and it could not have been a more lovely stay. The space is so perfect for large groups with the amount of beds, seating, and parking! The decor in this mid-century cottage is adorable! Brilliant mix of a 50's flair with beach theme and bright colors. I didn't know you could do that! So creative and fun. Steps out the door and you can choose a three minute walk one way to the river/pier, or a five minute walk down to the beach. We also really enjoyed hiring Savannah Canoe and Kayak to have a paddle board yoga experience which was unlike anything else I've ever done! Jessica was a pro bringing us all to a peaceful namaste moment while tethering us together in a class like group on the water! And Nigel took us across the river to Little Tybee and gave us some great ecological knowledge about the area. I highly recommend this as a great group activity. Loads of fun here on Tybee and we can't wait to come back and stay at the Drift Inn!

The house was perfect for seven of us with room to spare! It looks small from the front, but it runs deep on the property and is really big and roomy inside. The house was spotless, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked, and the furnishings are adorable (and comfortable)! We loved hanging out on the porch, gathering around the huge dining table for meals, and strolling right across the street to the back river pier to watch the sun set over "Little Tybee". It was so easy to carry over our kayaks and paddle boards without having to drive/park. To get to the beach we just walked along the river to the best beach on the island (the south end) or just strolled down the street a few short blocks to the same beach. I've rented many Tybee houses, and this is my favorite, so far, for so many reasons!!

We will definitely be back! Had a great week and the house was in the best location for our needs. Only one complaint and that was low water pressure in the showers. Other than that everything was perfect!
