Certified Military Residential Specilaist

The Islands Homes for Sales. Home buyers in search of a less-historic but easy-going setting might consider the islands east and southeast of downtown Savannah. One of these, Tybee Island, is a barrier island fronting on the Atlantic Ocean. The others are separated from the mainland by rivers or tidal creeks, but all of the islands exude the “getting-away-from-it-all” feeling that comes when you cross a stretch of tranquil marshland on your way home from work or school.

Eastside Islands

Oatland Island 
Oatland Island Wildlife Center’s environmental education facility operated by the Savannah-Chatham County public school system takes up much of heavily wooded Oatland. The remainder of the island is residential.

Talahi Island
Although near to commercial activity, Talahi conveys the feel of countryside living. Many of the homes there sit on large tracts bordered by waterways.

Whitemarsh Island
While for the most part residential, Whitemarsh offers islanders opportunities for shopping at several retail centers and is the home of an elementary school, a middle school, a high school and the area’s police substation.

Wilmington Island
The largest of the several inshore islands east of Savannah, this area is mainly residential in nature and is dotted with heavily forested neighborhoods, parks and recreational facilities. The island’s business district is the site of numerous restaurants, two supermarkets and a variety of retail stores.

Tybee Island
Located 18 miles from Savannah, this small seaside island is graced by a wide, 3-mile long beach that draws sun lovers and water-sports enthusiasts from throughout Georgia and the rest of the Southeast. While Tybee is a resort replete with a full complement of restaurants, modern hotels and motels, luxurious condominiums and quaint rental cottages, it’s also a residential area whose offerings range from historic homes to classic beach-style abodes.

Southeastern Islands

Dutch Island
This gated community of spacious homes and manicured yards is about 20 minutes from downtown Savannah.

Isle of Hope
One of Savannah’s most picturesque neighborhoods, Isle of Hope exudes the look of the Old South. Beautiful old cottages adorned with white picket fences line narrow streets and overlook the Herb and Skidaway rivers. Bluff Drive, which rambles along the Skidaway under moss-strewn oaks, is one of the area’s most alluring streets.

Skidaway Island
The residential jewel of Skidaway is The Landings, a large gated community that’s the site of upscale homes featuring a variety of styles — Southern Lowcountry, Colonial, Federal and traditional ranch — set on beautifully landscaped grounds. The Landings is a retirees’ paradise, with its two deepwater marinas, six private 18-hole golf courses, 34 tennis courts, fitness center and four clubhouses.
