What time are check-in and check-out?
Normal Check-In Time is between 4:00 PM and 5:30 PM. We cannot guarantee a specific Check-In time and access to the property will NOT be permitted until the property has been cleaned and inspected. Check-Out Time is BEFORE 10 AM. Overstaying the Check-Out time of 10:00 AM may result in additional charges.
Are there beach chairs and umbrellas?
Most properties do not offer beach chairs and/or umbrellas, however, there are places to rent beach gear, bikes, etc. You can view links for beach rentals in our local area guide.
Are paper products / toiletries provided?
We provision our properties with a “starter” supply of bath and dish soaps, paper towels, toilet paper and dishwasher tabs. For shorter stays (2-3 days), these supplies may be enough for your entire stay, but for longer stays (4 days or more) you may want to bring extra supplies or purchase them locally after you arrive.
Can I check in early or check out late?
We cannot guarantee early check-in, however, you may contact our office after 1:00 PM the day of your arrival to see if your property is ready. Tybee Island properties are booked so solidly during the In-Season that it is quite a feat to get them cleaned, inspected and ready for the next guests coming in, but our housekeeping and maintenance departments rise to the tasks and do a wonderful job. Because of our busy summer seasons, we do not allow late check-outs from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend, however, during the rest of the year you may contact our office no later than 1:00 PM the day prior to your scheduled departure to discuss the possibility.
How old do you have to be to rent a vacation rental property?
