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.

EXACTLY WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR!!
What a wonderful and beautiful week we have had. The Herons' Nest is exactly what we were looking for. Our quiet walks on the beach, great tours of the lighthouse, plus the day in Savannah has provided us perfect memories and stories to take home. Thank you for a clean, safe and peaceful home away from home. The wine and hot tub was a great plus.

Wonder stay at the Precious Herons' Nest!!
Thank you for a wonderful stay at the precious Herons' nest! It was a great relaxing way to end our honeymoon. We will be back!! P.S. After biting into an oyster at AJ's; I found a decent size pearl, but lost it in the laundry area ( or the dryer monster ate it )

Another Enjoyable stay at the Herons' Nest
Thank you for another enjoyable stay at the Herons' Nest. Our first visit was our 3rd anniversary and now we celebrate our 8th anniversary as well as the anticipated arrival of our son. We will be back for more memorable times on Tybee Island. Our close friends Cara and Richard are getting married this weekend and will be here at the Herons' Nest for their honeymoon. I think they will love it here as much as we do!

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.
