“enjoy the character of a historic home with updated beach fun furnishings”
Surf Song offers a unique opportunity to enjoy the character and beauty of a historic home with updated beach fun furnishings. The home was built in the late 1890’s for one of the senior officers at Fort Screven. In all there were 11 homes on “Officer’s Row” of which 9 still remain. The homes are an impressive sight all with Victorian styling and large porches sitting atop a large earthen berm created by the army engineers to protect the homes from potential flooding due to tropical storms or hurricanes. Much of the homes original charm has been retained including fireplaces, tin ceilings, pocket doors and other wood trim. The house is one block from the beach and has a park with great walking or running trails immediately behind the home. Tybee history spans well over 400 years and is full of exciting events. Tybee Island played many parts in forming our great nation. The Origin of the name “Tybee” like the history of the Island itself has many interpretations. Most historians believe “Tybee” derives from the Native American Euchee Indian word for “salt” which was one of many natural resources found on Tybee. Those resources have played an important role throughout the Island’s history including Spanish exploration for riches from the new world in 1520 by Lucas Vasquez de Ayllon who laid claim to Tybee as part of Spain’s “La Florida” which extended from the Bahamas to Nova Scotia.
