Homes for Rent East of Savannah
Thunderbolt and Gordonston
For those looking for something just a bit farther from the bustle of downtown, the neighborhoods of Gordonston and Thunderbolt are just far enough away to afford quiet while still being conveniently close to the downtown, Islands and Southside areas of Savannah.
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. Whitemarsh, and the neighboring Wilmington, are both centrally located between downtown Savannah, and the beaches of Tybee Island.
The largest of the several inshore islands east of Savannah, GA, this area is mainly residential in nature and is dotted with heavily forested neighborhoods, parks and recreational facilities. Wilmington Island has a library, as well as a YMCA facility with a gym and various youth sports and activities programs. Wilmington Island is home of the Wilmington Island Plantation Club, which features a golf course, tennis court, and swimming pool. Throughout the island you can find gated and non-gated communities, as well as neighborhoods with and without swimming pools, tennis courts, and boat ramps. Many of the homes on the island are single-family homes, and are primarily ranch style homes from the 1960s to the 1980s.
Tybee Island, known as “Savannah’s Beach,” is only 20 minutes away from Historic Downtown Savannah. Tybee is known for its quirky, laid-back charm, gentle waves, and 3 miles of sandy beaches. Tybee Island is host to several museums and historic sites, including Fort Pulaski, Fort Screven, and the Tybee Island Light Station and Museum. Those looking to explore a little more can take in the “back side” of the island via kayak or SUP, both of which are great ways to explore the surrounding salt marshes, creeks, and uninhabited Little Tybee Island, which is only accessible by water.
