Description

Located on the North end of Tybee, White Caps is a breathtaking historic home that will offer your family a quiet escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Dating back to 1897 this home will charm you with its unique beauty and abundance of history. Whitecaps is one side of a large duplex home located the historic Fort Screven area of Tybee, in a quiet residential setting across from Jaycee Park and only 200 yards from the beach access which is a short walk just across the quiet road.

Upon entering you are greeted with crisp white walls, high ceilings, and beautiful pine floors that will lead you through the home. The foyer opens into the light-filled and spacious living room with plush seating. The light pours into this room from the 2 large doors that open up onto the furnished porch. The living room features the original fireplace and mantel with built-in bookshelves on either side. The room is accompanied with a large flat screen TV. While you relax on the plush sofa, be sure to check out the elegant pressed tin ceilings and rich architectural details throughout the home.

The living room opens into a striking formal dining room with accents of exposed brick and natural elements. The polished glass dining table will seat up to 8. The dining room flows into the renovated kitchen with beautiful beadboard cabinets and stainless steel appliances. A small breakfast table awaits for you to enjoy a morning cup of coffee.

Just off of the kitchen is a bedroom with a double bed and attached bathroom. This room is perfect for the early riser. From the kitchen hallway, you will find a staircase leading downstairs to the renovated red, white and blue bunkroom. The bunkroom is furnished with a double-on-bottom twin-on-top bunk bed, flat screen TV and plenty of seating. Off of the bunkroom, you will find a bathroom and a separate laundry room with full sized washer and dryer.

When you venture up the double staircase from either the foyer or the back hallway, you will find 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The first bedroom you come to is the Master Suite, furnished with a king bed, large flat screen TV, and abundant storage space. Attached is a large spacious bathroom with a walk-in shower. The second bedroom is light-filled with 2 large windows and furnished with a queen bed and a day bed. The 3rd room has 2 beautiful brass twin beds and a window seat. In the hall, you will find an additional bathroom with a clawfoot tub, and pedestal sink adorned with retro black and white tiles.

Guests will enjoy the added amenity of the large fenced semi-private courtyard with an outdoor dining area and outdoor seating for 4. The fire pit in the courtyard is decorative only but is a great space to gather in the evenings.

This home is ideal for friend and family reunions or to accommodate the perfect girls’ trip. Additional amenities at the property include WIFI access and many special touches throughout. This home is not pet-friendly. There is parking for 2 vehicles.

Whitecaps provided the perfect ambience and location for our family to congregate. Our party consisted of 6 adults and 4 little ones. The home is breathtakingly beautiful without being fussy. Lots of natural light and very clean. We loved eating dinner outside on the wooden table next to the fire pit. Having a well-stocked kitchen made meal prep easy. Also appreciated all the extra dishes, glasses and kid-friendly dishware. Having 3 living levels, including 4 bathrooms, allows for plenty of privacy. Being able to walk directly across a quiet road to access the beach is very convenient, especially with little ones. Outdoor shower was a definite plus. The only improvements I can think of would be an option of larger tables inside/outside that would seat 10. Also, it would have been nice to be able to use the fire pit. We hope to come back and reserve this property again--amazing. Also, easy walk with the grandkids after dinner to the Sugar Shack for ice cream :).

Fantastic house that felt just like being at home. It surpassed our expectations and Tybee vacation rentals provided very helpful service with great communications.
