This yellow-and-white frame house is a quiet getaway, a place to unplug and renew, to sit on the front porch and make the rocker creak while watching the sun drop. There are absolutely no pretentions here, no airs, just the salt breeze. Tucked away on a lovely residential street in the Fort Screven Historic District, it's just minutes from a magnificent beach and the Tybee Island Lighthouse. Birders come with their binoculars because of the island's abundance of feathered
specimens. Each of the rooms of the onetime officer's home is tastefully—not overly—decorated with appealing original art, and overlooks the treetops.
