Tybee Island condo description
Please note first...weeks only in June and July. 3 nt. minimum otherwise.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST in these luxury Tybee condos that we think you'll agree are 'above the crowd' if you've visited this location before! Please contact us for availability..we have only one calendar and that's can't work for several condos! :) IF THE CALENDAR IS BLOCKED IN RED, IT MEANS NONE OF THE UNITS ARE OPEN.
To see pics of individual condos, please go to tybeevacations dot com and to page 2 and click on Savannah Beach and Racquet Club.
Ask for our email references from previous guests...always be sure you get those.Cleaning,decor, extras, supplies, service,furnishings, etc. vary a great deal as in all neighborhoods.:) PLEASE NOTE!!! WE SEE SOME CONDOS AT THIS LOCATION SHOW PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN WITH A WIDE ANGLE LENS TO BE VISUALLY DECEPTIVE. NO CONDOS ARE LARGER! Our pictures are actual size. If you're going to be deceived on pics, what else? :)
Please email us and we'll be delighted to give you a prompt and VERY complete answer, NOT just a 'yes, give me your credit card.' If you're coming June through the end of November, we suggest that you get a guarantee in writing of refund for unused nights for hurricane evacuation no matter what you rent before you give anyone a dime. It was a huge problem for many Tybee guests who got no refunds after the Hurricane Floyd evacuation ,and we disagree with that way of treating visitors.
Savannah Beach and Racquet Club is the perfect spot for ship and shrimpboat and dolphin viewing. The dolphin boats bring their tours to the waters off of our beach! THE PICTURES WILL SHOW YOU THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 'OWNER LOVED'CONDOS AND THE REST!! :) YOU'LL LOVE OUR RATES..very upgraded property for no more than most area motel rooms.You will find extras you have to bring or buy generally, even beach towels and beach chairs.
This is about a short 15 or 20 minute drive from downtown Savannah... island hopping across beautiful water and marsh views! Our secluded, private condos are situated on the sought after North Beach at Tybee Island... looking across toward Hilton Head! There is no real estate company involved on this VRBO listing like so many!!! You'll enjoy the largest beachside pool on the island and one smaller one that is also beachside! Only one other spot (large condos) on the island has abeachside pool!
We offer properties remodelled and lovingly decorated and VERY well supplied! Important....we have an emergency repair gentleman on call for OUR property should you have a repair emergency! This is most important if your toilet clogs, etc. You'll find so many differences with us! You can also arrive at whatever late hour you choose...very rare. You don't have to rush to get to a real estate company before it closes or wait around for someone to let you in! (You'll have the means to let yourself in.)
You do not get stripped down bare provisions and you do NOT need to bring your house with you.
Pool, beach, and tennis and parking included in fee. Security gate. Maximum comfortable occupancy four adults and two children (one queen bed, one queen sleeper, and two bunk type beds). Join us and you'll never forget Savannah or Tybee Island.
NO hidden charges! Guest packets in the mail before you come so you'll be well acquainted with the wonders that await you! Please visit tybee vacations dot com and go to page 2 and click on Savannah Beach and Racquet Club to see interior pics of each condo.

We usually stay at Beachside Colony but was able to get a last minute reservation at Captains Quarters due to a cancellation. Oh my goodness, so glad we did! Had a wonderful time, loved the accommodations, reservations were a breeze, will definitely stay again. Thank you for letting us stay. Alice Jones

Owner response: Alice, we know you're busy planning a family wedding, so your taking the time to write such a lovely review is very much appreciated. We may have turned you into a North Beach addict.:) It's such a wonderful spot, isn't it, to see the huge cargo ships pass, the shrimpboats, the dolphin play off the beach (the one great spot on the island for that.), etc. It's so nice I think to be away from the noisy, crowded beaches and have some more quiet, peaceful beach. Thank you again for visiting and for your comments. We'll look forward to the honor of having you visit again we hope.
A hidden treasure

This was the first time we've ever chose a place blindly online, but I am glad we trusted Susan our contact and her information shared about this condo and the wonderful TYBEE BEACH! The condo was nice and just the right size for our family of four who came in for our daughters gymnastics event in nearby Savannah. It was also our kids first experience at going to the ocean. They loved it! Tybee Beach are is a hidden treasure that i think is not known by many. Lucky us,our room was right by the pool, and we got to enjoy watching the dolpins every day both in the morning and evening. It was quite a delight! We hope to come back and experience this wonderful place again soon!

Owner response: Todd and Elaine, we so appreciate your taking the time to write this lovely review for us. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the condo..and Tybee! (was chosen the number one beach in America for all the good reasons.:) A search on cnn.com will bring up that article.) This IS the one spot on the island where dolphin are generally seen playing off the beach; it's where the dolphin tour boats come! :) It's wonderful that you enjoyed those wonderful animals as well. The beach seems almost private as you may have noticed since there aren't any big public parking lots in the area AND the security gate keeps out people who are not guests! We look forward to your next visit.
PERFECTION in the Captain's Quarters!!!!
PERFECTION in the Captain's Quarters!!!!
We've been here less than two hours, but I had to sit right down and write a review because it is deserved. First, I'm online which I need. We've stayed in a number of condos here randomly and not had that before. The owner wouldn't guarantee because it's wireless in the pool area and from the office, but she said this condo could usually pick up the office internet and everyone who can is welcome to use it per the association.So far,it's working great. AND...this condo has a complete kitchen with even a dishwasher! We've never had that before and it's so handy with three children. The opened up wider bedroom door is WONDERFUL! All we've had before is those tiny doors you can't get in easily. AND...there's an extra closet in the bedroom we've never seen before and shelves in the bathroom we've never seen before. We have 2 televisions which is also new to us..and SUCH comfy and cozy furniture. The main thing is how immaculate everything is!!! Obviously the owners take great care in making sure there is a thorough cleaning between each guest. My wife is very picky and she's so very happy.We have beach chairs and beach towels and an eating table on the balcony..never had those things before either. We LOVE all the nautical decorating. The owner had sent us a packet in advance of a lot of area information, so we're headed out to do some things we never knew about before thanks to that. When we get back tonight, we can watch movies that have been provided for us! There are other nice condos here I'm sure; we've just never had one like this one OR such an easy time getting in! I recommend for restaurants the Sundae Cafe and A.J's and Singray's since we've been here before. Anyway, taking the time to write this review we thought was important because we'd get busy when we get home and forget. .Clean, Clean, Clean my wife says to say. Oh..this whole complex isn't great if you have a disability; there are a lot of steps around. Other than that, it's good for anyone! (no pets though..against the condo rules we were told. Sadly had to leave "Muffin" home but we understand.We lucked into April weather in the 80's and love that too!

Owner response: Gentry..thank you and your family so very much for visiting us AND for taking part of your vacation time to write such a special review. Yes, "your" condo has been changed from how they were built. We didn't like the little corner kitchenette with no dishwasher so we added that. We re-did a lot in the bathroom, opened up that narrow bedroom door, AND put another closet in the bedroom so there would be storage for linens for the sleeper, etc. You're at the beach:), so we feel nautical decorating is important. A lot of the cabinet and door "beachy" scenes were owner painted, so we're glad you like it all.:) The guest packets are honestly time consuming and expensive to send, but we feel owners have a responsbility to provide as much info as possible to help visitors plan their time when in a new area. Even repeat visitors to Tybee like you often don't know about a lot of activities or places to visit, like the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge. Again, your kindness and your visit are both very much appreciated.
This condo is perfect. It is in a great location! The view from the balcony is beautiful, especially when its time for the sun to set! The condo is stocked up with everything you could need; dishes, towels, linens, appliances. The beach is clean and private, quite relaxing. The reservation process was easy, the landlords are pleasant to deal with. I have zero complaints and will return soon!

We know everyone is very busy these days; your thoughtfulness is very kind. We're glad you enjoyed Tybee even though it was very unseasonably cool for your stay! :) I wish we could control that; it was rare for now. We'll look forward to your next visit with us!
My ten years of experience tells me to advise ignoring the ONE bad review and believing the others!
My ten years of experience tells me to advise ignoring the ONE bad review and believing the others!
I signed on to write the owners for availability for our next trip, and I happened to scroll and see one bad review for the Captain's Quarters out of a zillion five star. I don't like the concept of reviews, but I decided to write one because it's needed. I am in the travel business; it's more and more common every day I find for travellers to threaten bad reviews if they don't get some money back. It's quite a game. I rather suspect that might be the case with that review, because I've stayed in the Captain's Quarters 18 times so far over almost ten years. It's a great condo..offers so much that many here don't...and these owners are great. They changed their keybox not long ago. For a while we couldn't get in and called them. Guess what..it was our fault..we just didn't read!!!! The information they sent us in the mail (with our huge package of area information..who else DOES that?) was correct. We went to the wrong key box out of old habit. Even though it was OUR fault, they brought us a box of candy just because we had a little inconvenience they didn't cause! This many five star reviews probably tells a story I don't need to tell; I just got mad that someone would trash these overboard lovely people and their property.

Owner response: Bob, thank you so very much for your kind review and comments. Yes, it does make the review process "suspect" these days when many travellers are learning to use review as a "scam tool", so to speak. We've had one party threaten a bad review if they didn't have at least half of what they had paid waiting for them in their condo when they arrived. This was a call made from their home the day before they were coming to this area. Hopefully most people can filter through reviews and determine what is true by majority opinion. We always appreciate your visits and look forward to having you back on Tybee with us when you can.
My wife and I booked this rental from Sue and Stu with only a weeks notice, They were wonderful to work with, emailed the forms and details to us and check-in was a breeze. This is a wonderful location right on the Savannah River leading to the heart Savannah only 15 miles away. The beach is beautiful, the large ships passing by are amazing. This is a gated community and no pets are allowed so you are assured of a good nights sleep. We loved the location and would love to be able to come back. We spent nine nights there and had a wonderful time.

Owner response: Thank you two so very much for visiting us AND taking the time to write such a lovely review. We are so extremely glad that you enjoyed your stay with us/ It IS a wonderful geographic location, isn't it? Actually, it's not on the Savannah River. (Stu is a Coast Guard licensed master captain and has the charts, etc.) The Savannah River starts just west of Tybee at Cockspur Island basically. Since Tybee is an island, it has other islands in view, so one could easily feel like being on a wide, wide river. It juts out into the Atlantic Ocean though like Hilton Head. (the lights of Hilton Head are gorgeous from this spot on clear nights.) The Colregs will show this as the Tybee Roads area of the Atlantic Ocean. Even though it's not river though, the ships do have to pass by to get into the river and watching them is a treat of which we never get tired! The dolphin play off our beach too (this is where the dolphin tour boats come), shrimp boats are often in view, etc.) A great new year to you and we so hope to have you visit us again.
We were so impressed with our wonderful condo! We came down for my brother-in-laws wedding this weekend and found this to be the perfect place to bring our kids, so close to the pool & the beach! I can't wait to plan a trip for next year!!!

Owner response: Thank you so much, Ashley! We appreciate your taking the time to write us such a lovely review. This is a wonderful spot, isn't it, for easy access to the biggest pool on the island and the beach...AND to see the huge cargo ships and shrimpboats, etc. pass offshore and watch the dolphin play. We're blessed to be situated in the one great spot on the island for these views! We're glad you enjoyed the condo and so look forward to your next visit.
Captain Stu and Susan, my husband and I wanted to take a few moments to say thank you for making this a memorable Anniversary/ Family vacation. Captain’s Quarters is a great retreat. The condo was very neat and clean. All we had to do was enjoy it. The kids really enjoyed their own bunk beds- made them feel special. The condo is very convenient to shopping and food. The food was FANTASTIC. We had everything that we needed and more. My husband and I have never stayed in a condo where beach towels, chairs and umbrellas were available in the room. Definitely a Wow factor. The swimming pool was very large. My kids liked it more than the beach LOL...mind you we were only on the beach a few times. The goody bag was so thoughtful. I would recommend AJ’s, Breakfast Club and The Crab Shack on Tybee Island. I would also reconmmend the Savannah tour in Historical Savannah and Jimmy Johns for a quick sandwich and Lady and sons for a great dinner experience. Everyone is so helpful and friendly too. Great Vacation!!! Thanks again Captain Stu and Susan for EVERYTHING and look forward to returning soon! Would definitely recommend this condo to everyone.

Owner response: Thank you Dana for the lovely comments, especially since you didn't have cable service for a day and a half. We so appreciate your understanding that Comcast problems weren't in our control and that we worked feverishly to get the situation resolved. We're so very glad that your family vacation combined with your anniversary provided such pleasure for you. AND...your wonderful children charmed everyone.:) Everyone does enjoy visiting Paula Deen's "Lady and Sons", and her family also has Uncle Bubba's Seafood House on the way out to Tybee which many visitors do not realize. That is worth a try as well. We agree that a trolley tour of the nation's largest historic district in Savannah is a must for all visitors...it's the main reason the Paris newspaper has named Savannah the most beautiful city in America. It's wonderful for all Tybee visitors that the trip back and forth to Savannah is so easy, short, and pretty. Oh..the pool is the largest by far on the island and tends to work well for all sans all the awful crowding of so many places. Thank you again and we look forward to your next visit..and DO bring the kids again.:)

I would like to give thanks to the wonderful owners of the The Captain's Quarters, Mr. Stu and Mrs. Susan. This was a wonderful condo. It was furnished to meet all of our needs. The condo was very clean and enjoyable. This was the very first condo/resort I have ever been that catered to your every need. My family and I had a wonderful experience and plan to return to Tybee Island, especially " The Captain's Quarters. Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!

We were very surprised to find the "captains quarters" dirty upon arrival based on the other reviews. The carpet was filthy with what appeared to be years of dust/dirt. There was indoor/outdoor carpet taped over the wall to wall carpeting in the hallway. There was dust caked on the ceiling, return vent etc. The condo is very outdated but we would have been ok had it been clean. The owners had someone come to shampoo the carpet but were unwilling to offer any other solution. The mattresses were very old and uncomfortable. The condo is way too small for 6. The description should only indicate 4 max. The wireless connection is not reliable inside the condo, only on the deck. The building overall is aging but in decent conditiIon. The view is nice and pool area was fine. The owners seem like nice people but the condo description is very misleading and the positive reviews must be in reference to one of their other condos. We do not plan to rent from these owners again in the future.

Owner response: Goodness. We hope these visitors did not have personal problems prohibiting their vacation enjoyment. First, the condo was cleaned as always by a professional cleaning co. The owner of that, knowing how picky we are, has her number posted on the fridge for anyone to call her to come if there is any cleaning issue. These guests did not call her. Our other guests ARE intelligent enough to know which condo they are in.You see the previous five star review posted on July 2 by a guest in this condo..just before this group. That five star is our 12 year norm. The mattress is not old,and there is a feather topper which many comment on as being wonderful. It is not possible to FEEL the mattress through that topper and the visitor cannot have basis for this comment. The guests called on day four of their stay, having decided the carpet was dirty.It is cleaned often, but sand can be a challege anywhere beachfront in summer. So, we had it professionally cleaned for them the next day. The complex mgr. could verify that the condo is not dated. It's one of the very few with a dishwasher for example. It has a full kitchen rather than the corner efficiency, an opened up bedroom wall, new bathroom decor, an extra bedroom closet, new wall t.v, couch and chair this year and so forth.Wireless is available in the pool and clubhouse areas and no one is promised otherwise. It often does work in this suite though. Many are pleased that the condo sleeps six with queen bed, queen sleeper, and bunks. The guests had seen complete and up to date picture before coming. No surpises and no misrepensation or someone else would have mentioned that in hundreds of guests over 13 years.The indoor outdoor carpet in the hall was to help with summer ssand and many have expressed appreciation for that easy cleanup area. These guests wanted a refund. It was not warranted and they used the condo for a full week. Perhaps they wanted a large, luxury suite. We have those available for more money of course had we had any idea. We received none of these complaints during their stay, except for the carpet which we didn't agree with but took care of.Read our guestbook when you come. You'll not only be able to judge by your own experience but also that of countless others. We expect that most can easily determine what this review is about. We won't ever yield to refund blackmail but will do whatever is necessary to take wonderful care of our guests AND solve any problems that might crop up quickly.

About the owner: We live on Wilmington Island, Savannah. It's our pleasure to provide all the hospitality we can to help you enjoy the exquisite Savannah and Tybee area! :)
Why the Owner Chose Tybee Island:
Savannah Beach and Racquet Club is the perfect spot on Tybee to us for vacationing couples and small families. We have the largest pool on the island (one of only two beachside), with a kiddie pool. There's lots of parking (often a BIG problem on Tybee), outdoor grills and tennis courts. This northern beach area where Tybee juts out into the ocean like Hilton Head does (just to our north..the lights are gorgeous at night) is THE spot on the island to see dolphin play off the beach, ships and shrimp boats pass, etc.
Largest pool on the island with kiddie pool attached...beachside!!
