Very nice property, love the creek view and near a pier, the pier in the property is broken, would be great if we can use it, otherwise we enjoyed our stay!

We visit Tybee every year and each year Kelley and the team leave a handwritten note or card and flowers for my wife! It seems like a small gesture but it is HUGE and each note or card is filled with kindness and compassion! It sets the tone for an amazing stay! This is our second stay at Bart's Back River Retreat and the home is our favorite!! We love watching the dolphins for the deck. Thank you Kelley!!!

This is an absolute hidden treasure place to stay on Tybee Island. Your back door is 40 feet from the intercostal, and 600 yards from a quiet beach. 15-minute walk to the Atlantic Ocean and downtown Tybee. The views from the 3rd floor are amazing. You will enjoy great Sunsets from your 3rd story balcony. Plenty of space, 3 full baths, large owners suite, plenty of storage.

We loved the townhouse and it’s location. Spacious with beautiful views and walking proximity to local beaches. With a few improvements it will be better. Kitchen needs to better equipped. No salad bowl, no mixing bowls, no Pyrex like baking dishes. There was no cork screw so we bought one and left it. Toilet in master bath does not flush down consistently. Someone came out to fix it but it continued to be problematic. Hose on outside is ideal for washing off sand but it is full of holes. So take care of these minor issues and 1505 Chatham will be that much better. Thanks.

Beautiful home with stunning ocean views. Close proximity to all beaches and restaurants. Gorgeous property well maintained and management company superb - above and beyond in all aspects of stay!

The view was amazing and it was very calm and peaceful at the end of the island. With a few minor improvements, I would have given this place a 10: the people who stayed in the master bedroom said that the mattress was saggy and there were no towel bars in the master bath. Also, the carpet on the stairs had several stains, and none of the carpet looks like it had been vacuumed. And one very minor thing: there were no serving bowls in the otherwise very well equipped kitchen. If the bed and the carpet had been in better shape, I would have given this place a 10. And I would definitely go back there!

The house was ready when we arrived. It was very very clean. Plenty of room for a family of four to spread out. The landscape surrounding the house was gorgeous. The location is convenient just a short walk to all the restaurants, shops, bars, and beach.

Photos online were EXACTLY what the beach house looked like in person. We were so pleased with our stay and hated to leave. It was perfect for our family and I hope we can stay there again in the future .
RachelJune 2020
Great place! We would definitely stay there again or recommend others to stay there. We had 6 girls for a fun girls weekend in Tybee and the place was perfect. It comfortably slept all 6 of us. The decks and views off of each room were beautiful. The perfect size and location for a weekend away!
