We came to the Beachview as the 3rd leg of our trip (Charleston, Savannah, and then Tybee Island) for 3 days of relaxation. We wish we could have stayed longer. The Beachview rooms are beautiful and clean, the location is 1 block from one beach and 2 blocks from another beach. It's in walking distance to a lot of shopping and restaurants and within biking distance (provided by the Beachview) from anything else. The owners are warm and welcoming. The breakfast was absolutely delicious every single day and the 5 pm wine and cheese hour was wonderful. The island itself is extremely pretty, charming, relaxing, and laid back.

We drove to Tybee somewhat spur of the moment; no premade reservations. We drove around and stopped at several places inquiring about vacancies and we saw this place and noted there were 2 vacancies, right away we called and after speaking with Karen we took one of the rooms and were so glad we did! It is a charming place with big porches which were able to be used by everyone, not a select 1 or 2 people with a specific room. The room was spotlessly clean and decorated so perfectly. It was quiet and within walking distance to shops, restaurants and the beach. We were able to park our car and leave it for the weekend (which is nice because everywhere on Tybee are expensive meters for parking). The owners have beach towels, bikes, umbrellas, beach chairs, etc for use by guests. This was convenient so that we didn't have to pack wet towels after going to the beach the morning that we left. Breakfast was yummy, too! I can't say enough great things about Karen and her husband and the Beachview Bed and Breakfast. We will definitely be return guests on our next visit to Tybee Island! Thanks for making our weekend so special!

It is very rare in life to meet someone who loves their job as much as Karen does. She sincerely loves what she does and is extraordinary at it. She redid the whole b&b herself and has decorated with found pieces. Each room is extremely warm and welcoming with an effortless piecing together of mix and match furniture. The rooms are beyond clean, I didnt find 1 spec of sand! It was almost astonishing. But beyond all was the incredible breakfast she made in the morning. Her cooking is above and beyond and the amount of food was incredible and often lead to 3 o'clock lunches because we were so full. The B and B is located directly in the center of the point of tybee which lead to being surrounded by beach on both sides. Everything was a short walk or bike ride (which she has available for your use) away and was a great way to get a feel for the island. I honestly don't think I have ever met someone so great and truly enjoyed every minute spent there. If you are going to Tybee, beachview bed and breakfast is a must!

We stayed at Beachview for 6 days and loved it! We were never at a Bed & Breakfast and we really enjoyed it. The owner Karen and her husband were such kind and warm people. Karen made you feel so comfortable! She makes you feel right at home while still giving you hospitality with privacy. The rooms are beautiful! We stayed in Waterscape and had a private room with our own porch. The included breakfasts were delicious every morning! There was nothing you can complain about, Definitely a first class place! Karen also knew it was my sons and my birthday and surprised us and made the best pound cake! She also made my son delicious brownies! The house is located in a beautiful quiet section of Tybee and you also have access to bikes which made the location fun! I would highly recommend this place and we definitely look forward to going back!

We visited Tybee Island as a special trip to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and stayed at the Beachview B AND B and how glad we were that we choose it because it took the trip to next level special. This place is an absolute gem. The welcoming feel of the place from the moment we arrived (it was late as we traveled from UK) was fantastic. The room (Garden Suite) was beautifully decorated (bathroom wall is stunning) immaculately clean as is the rest of the house and very comfortable,Sleeping in the beds is definitely not a problem at the Beachview, breakfast is out of this world and cooked fresh as you arrive and is really delicious (home made grits are to die for), The porch with its rocking chairs is a must to spend time chilling, relaxing a whiling away some lazy hours in the afternoon. The highlight of the Beachview is definitely Karen and Frank, they are the most gracious, helpful and accommodating people as you would wish to meet.
If you are surfing the net to check out somewhere to stay when in Tybee, save yourself a lot of time and take it from me, just book into Beachview.
Five stars is not enough for this place
A special place with special people, good friends made including Karen and Frank.
Thanks Karen

Room Tip: The garden suite is stunning

What a great place to stay on Tybee Island. Karen and Frank were first-rate hosts and the room (Waterscape) was awesome! Everything you coukd possibly want or need is available, including bikes, beach towels, beach chairs, and umbrellas (which we unfortunately needed one night). The expansive front porch is the perfect gathering area for guest, and we were lucky enough to be there with a very ecclectic but fun group of people. the beach is a short, easy walk, but far enough (just a block) that the house feels very private. The breakfasts were very good and plentiful, though I did miss going to the Breakfast Club on this trip. You must stay here at least once!

Here are a number of reasons why you SHOULD absolutely consider this location:

1) This old home has been renovated and updated and turned into an incredibly lovely, beautifully fitted and furnished beach guesthouse.
2) The laid back, relaxing and welcoming ambience of this b/b envelopes you before you even step into your room.
3) The attention to detail is astounding, the inside, outside, common areas, bedrooms, gardens, front, back…all are immaculate.
4) Spotlessly and scrupulously clean! Once again…not just the bedrooms, but the entire place is well maintained and shining.
5) Little extras that really make this place stand out – cookies and muffins put out beside the all day help yourself coffee bar, wine and beer along with savory munchies come out in the early evening, a topped-up fruit bowl for afternoon snack, iced tea and lemonade on ice, soda cans and fruit juice in the bar fridge…all help yourself.
6) Best for last – the hosts: Karen and Frank. I have never encountered such gracious, helpful and friendly proprietors! Karen is so gregarious and will do anything to be of service, Frank is quieter and more businesslike, and yet, nothing is too much to ask either of them. Really makes this location stand out as a gem!

Here are only 2 items to know though before visiting:

1) While beach access is only steps away, this site is not ocean view. There is an angle on the fabulous deck which does allow a glimpse of the beach and ocean, but the rest does overlook homes, yards and streets.
2) The atmosphere is lively! This means if you are looking for private and quiet, lots of sleep and a solitary retreat, then “Beachview B/B” is not for you.

In summary:

Now knowing points 1 and 2 above, I would return in a heartbeat, and if I could afford it, knowing all the other items I listed in 1-6 above, would stay a lot longer!

PS: The photographs on TripAdvisor do not do this place justice!

Room Tip: "Presidential Suite" is gorgeous, but not in a private or quiet spot.
