This is one of my favorite rooms! Peaceful and Calming is the best words I can use to describe this room. A Queen Bed that features therapeutic mattresses, Egyptian cotton percale sheets and 100% down filled pillows and alternate pillows. High original ceilings made of heart pine. The private Bath features all new Eco friendly plumbing and fixtures. This is the room I feel was Ophelia's, the first owner in 1910. It is on the back end of the house on the Second floor so you do not get any street noise. It is across from the kitchen and just outside the Breakfast Hall but since we only serve breakfast that really is not an inconvenience. In fact, I like to tip toe across the barefoot clean floors to the Keurig Coffee Pot station for a fresh cup of brewed coffee and a homemade cookie. It is located on the back northwest corner of the building. This suite has four windows for extra light but you will be able to sleep late since the rising sun does not shine thru as in the front of the hous

Our Honeymoon Home

5 on July 21, 2013

What a fantastic hidden jewel we discovered on Tybee Island when we checked into the Beachview Bed and Breakfast. Greeted by possibly the warmest welcome team, we immediately felt at ease and comfort after a very long trip as Frank and Karen allowed us early check-in into a presidential suite of romance. The Beachview offered not only a very clean and beautiful vacation rental, but it offered a home away from home, as well. Each morning started with a delicious assortment of breakfast delights, while throughout the day, small extra consolations, such as beach towels and chairs and sweet snacks, were provided so that we could just enjoy our day. Down to the smallest detail, Karen had planned how to make the most of our stay, offering her best recommendations and accommodations. She truly loves Tybee and the Beachview, and that passion is exuded in the Beachview’s essence. I have yet to even mention the flawless wedding ceremony she arranged for us. When talking with Karen, we planned for a very simple and intimate elopement ceremony, and what she created was just that with a twist of enchantment. Just as with her bed and breakfast, she planned down to the least detail, capturing the “small” things and the fabulous memories they make. Karen arranged and scheduled everything; we only had to show up dressed and ready to say, “I do.” No stress, no planning, no fretting; she worked behind the scenes so that we could experience a magical Tybee wedding. From the gorgeous flowers to the charming sunset beach ceremony to the fun photographer pair, Karen planned everything perfectly, better than we ever could have planned ourselves. Karen and Frank embody the heart of “Southern Hospitality.” ~Beth P., Oxford, MS

Beach View Bed and Breakfast

5 on May 29, 2013

3 of my girlfriends and I stayed at the Beachview B&B the end of April, 2013. We loved this place and the owners were very accommodating and friendly. The landscaping was very nice. Everything very clean. The breakfasts are gourmet-tasting and presentation lovely. We sat at the tables on the second-floor porch, which felt like a plantation of old with the balmy breeze making the outside curtains gently flow. We didnt get to partake in the afternoon refreshments/appetizers, but the other guests told us they were wonderful. The beach was only a couple blocks away. Savannah was only a 15-minute drive away. Staying at this place on Tybee Island was a perfect mix for relaxing and laid back feeling with the history and culture of Savannah just minutes away. Be sure to ask to see the photo-history book of how the owners renovated this place. We stayed in Marys Suite - it was roomy enough for the 4 of us, charmingly decorated and we had our own sort-of private patio.

Who knew... Beach view?

4.6 on January 19, 2013

I had visited Beach View B&B during a house tour in the spring of 20122 and knew it would be a lovely place for a "birthday getaway" close to where we live. But... who knew Beach View would become the perfect choice for its warm hospitality, top-notch accommodations and exceptional breakfasts? It has been and will be highly recommended to friends and family.
