eCREATIVE is the virtual creator of coastal shabby chic - Jim Heflin has ten of the nearly 40 on the island, including his own. Also available through Jim for those purists are the original ocean front cottages with authentic architecture and details, like the 100year Randolph or Swan Cottages with the hauntingly stark and elegant lines of an Andrew Wyeth painting. These are right on the beach and harken back to turn of the century. Tybee Island has gorgeous beaches, modest cottages, and its own rendition of a miniature Versailles at the luxurious 27 Taylor Street. For a lark, Sundial Fishing and Nature Tours ( will take you out on a half-day or full-day chartered boat adventure with dolphin sightings as well as beach combing, swerving, and careening insider access to the inner salt marshes, birding, and fossil and shell hunting.
