Tybee Island condo description
Designed for two, the Herons' Nest condo is a private and unique hideaway. Nestled in Tybee's historical Venetian Terrace District and sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean and the Backriver Inlet the Herons' Nest offers a quiet retreat for honeymoons, anniversaries and rest and relaxation for hardworking couples. Lovingly designed by Tybee artists, Fred and Malinda Urvant, the condo reflects their eclectic Art-Deco style of design. Original paintings by the late Soho artist Larry Urvant and photographs by Fred Urvant adorn the walls. Restored Art-Deco furnishings and white tile floors complete the condo's cozy design.
Play on Tybee's scenic Backriver Beaches and return to your own private tropical garden to rest and relax. Enjoy a cool drink on your spacious screened porch or soak in the warm waters of your own private 4-person Jacuzzi. Rejuvenate in a soft-water shower and wrap yourself in fluffy towels of Egyptian cotton and sleep on European style linens. Luxury at the beach is only a moment away during your stay at the Herons' Nest.
We invite you to experience the true flavor of Tybee. Beautiful beaches, scenic landscapes, historic sites, excellent cuisine and a laid-back 1950's culture. Since the early 1900's Tybee has been called a utopia and we could not agree more. Please join us at the Herons' Nest where pleasant memories begin.

HOT TUB MUCH APPRECIATED!!Guest comment entered by owner
HOT TUB MUCH APPRECIATED!!
We had a wonderful time at the Herons' Nest; as my wife ran her 1st marathon in the Critz Tybee Run. The weather left much to be desired as it rained during the race, but she was a trooper and completed the whole 26.2 mile run!!! The hot tub was much appreciated after the race! We look forward to a much more relaxing visit to the Herons' Nest next time. The bed is fabulous! It made it very difficult to get up and pack on Sunday morning. We recommend: Sunrise Cafe's Breakfast Buffet-excellent buffet Uncle Bubba's_-seafood was great The Crab Shack-best atmosphere on Tybee

Year Purchased: 1995
About the owner: Fred and I are both transplants from the East Coast who met in Atlanta. Our dream was to return to the Atlantic Ocean and in 1994 we began a search for the perfect spot. I had been retired from Dupont Corp. after 20 years and Fred was ready to make a career change. Our search ended on Tybee in the Historic Back River District. My mother moved from Canada and settled on Tybee with us and my son and grandchildren settled in the city of Savannah.
Why the Owner Chose Tybee Island:
Tybee was the perfect little beach city, quiet, picture perfect and so small that no one lived more than a few blocks from the beach. Housing values had not exploded yet and you were able to get a good value in a fixer upper. ** fast forward almost 20 years** Tybee is still the perfect little beach city and has retained it's 1950's atmosphere.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
You only have to spend a few hours on Tybee to know that this Island is a one of a kind spot and be captured by it's unique culture. Close to Savannah and activities; Tybee offers a peaceful contrast. A calm, quiet and peaceful atmosphere is abundant. Walking the beach, riding bikes and watching sunsets is complimented by the generous and friendly nature of Tybee's local population who feel just grateful that they are able to reside on this little piece of paradise.
