Tybee Beach Vacation Rentals & Property Management, LLC introduces one of it's most unique home rental properties on Tybee...

“Blackbeard’s Beacon”

Originally used to guide British ships into the port of Savannah, Georgia, the Tybee Island Lighthouse was also helpful as a guiding beacon to pirates landing on its sandy beaches. The notorious pirate Edward Teach, “Blackbeard”, whose crew sourced for freshwater supplies in the inland waterways, is believed to have buried some of his ill-gotten treasure in the sands of Tybee Island…

Welcome to “Blackbeard’s Beacon” at 29 Meddin Drive, Tybee Island, Georgia.
From “Blackbeard’s Beacon” 360-degree wrap around covered deck you can gaze at 30 Meddin Drive, home of the Tybee Island Lighthouse, one of the few remaining 18th-century lighthouses still in operation in North America. At 154 feet in height, climb its 178 steps to reach the viewing platform with its amazing island and ocean views.

Or… view Battery Garland at Fort Screven, built in 1899 and once upon a time armed with 12-inch rifled guns to fend off invaders. Inside is the Tybee Museum which houses Indian, Pirate, Civil War, and many other historical exhibits.

Or… ride a bike along the quaint streets of Tybee Island and perhaps run into your favorite movie star, singer, food mogul, or author. Sandra Bullock, John Mellencamp, Paula Deen, and Mary Kay Andrews own homes on Tybee Island. Or, perhaps bump into a crew working on the newest film being shot on location. The Last Song, starring Miley Cirus, Greg Kinnear, Kelly Preston, and Liam Hemsworth was filmed on Tybee Island with scenes at North Beach Bar & Grill. Baywatch, starring the Rock, filmed on our beaches. As well as Live By Night, starring Ben Affleck. So did Gifted with Chris Evans, Magic Mike XXL with Channing Tatum, The General’s Daughter with John Travolta, Dirty Grandpa starring the one and only Robert DeNiro, and yes, even Sponge Bob frolicked in our surf while filming Sponge Bob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.

Or… walk across the street to North Beach Bar & Grill, 33 Meddin Drive, located between the Lighthouse and the beach, and offering a lunch and dinner menu, featuring some of the area’s freshest seafood with a Caribbean flair. Part of The Last Song was filmed here. Check out the adjoining table, Miley may be sitting there!

Or, simply… take a 3-minute stroll (and that is walking slowly!) to Tybee Island’s North Beach. Go sunning, shelling, surfing, or, perhaps, even searching for Blackbeard’s treasure?

It can start at daybreak, or at any time of the day when you stay at “Blackbeard’s Beacon.” Arrrr!

The team was great from beginning to end. Check in was seamless, and the amenities offered at the home were perfect. Top notch experience.
This property was absolutely amazing! There was plenty of space for a large family. The home had every detail attended to, with games and entertainment for the kids, and tv's throughout the house. The pool and wrap around porch made it a tough call whether or not to even go to the beach! We also loved that it was walking distance to the lighthouse and the beach. Will definitely stay here again!

All staff were super nice and pleasant. We had to call 2 times due to air conditioning issues, and both times, the staff members were very helpful and the repair person arrived very quickly.
It was a great vacation and plenty of space for 2 families.
