Tybee Island condo description

Thank you for visiting the DANCING DOLPHIN at Savannah Beach & Racquet Club. You are in for a real treat. This condo is fresh and updated with beadboard walls, carpeted floors, updated furnishings and many goodies for you. I want my guests happy and comfortable and I want you back to visit with us again.

A wonderful, comfortable king bed will provide restful sleep after your days on the beach.. This is a Sealy ultra plush pillowtop and it's really comfortable !! There have been upgrades in the kitchen, as well. There is yummy new carpeting and a super comfortable sofa. The bathroom has shelves built into the wall to give you a little more for your 'stuff'. Also a vanity has been added in the bedroom for your 'stuff'. So ... bring all your stuff cause there is now plenty of room for you to be a little more comfortable.

The Dancing Dolphin is offered for couples only. Many of the updates and improvements have been made to appeal to vacationing couples. Providing a special place for honeymoons, anniversary celebrations or just a special vacation home for couples is something I've found a great need for at the Racquet Club. These wonderful condos are small but make great places for couples. I have a variety of other condos availabe, all very nice, that will accommodate a small family. We have a maximum of 4 is all the condos in my group. Please email for information on the others if you're looking for accommodations for up to four occupants.

Please note that photos were taken with a wide angle lens to give you a better view of the condo. It can cause rooms to look larger than they really are. Please use the furniture, kitchen appliances, sliding doors and windows to help you determine the actual size of the rooms photographed. There is no intent to deceive - only the desire for you to see and know exactly what you're getting.

Whether you're looking for a vacation spot for a few days or a few weeks, you will find the comfort here is second to none. You truly can sit on the deck, with and watch the dolphin dance. Dolphin (lots of them) are a common site following the various watercraft that will pass in front of your beachfront vacation home. This wonderful condo is conveniently located on the first floor of Building B and only 80 feet from the swimming pool and dune walk to the beach. The view is wonderful from this vacation dream and will entertain you for many hours.

Wireless internet is provided in the condo for your convenience.

The SBRC community is located on the north beach and you never have to leave the complex. We are located in a nice residential area on the north beach of Tybee with limited beach access. You'll find the beach here is much less congested that the main beach on the south end of the island.

We have a large beachfront pool. There are three tennis courts for your fun and enjoyment. SBRC shares common areas with a sister community so you also have access to the pool next door. Walk out either side of your building and you're just a few feet from a pool or walkway to the beach.

You'll find beach towels and beach chairs are provided for your use.

All the 'extras' you would expect from an owner who truly cares for your comfort and enjoyment are provided in the Dancing Dolphin. We provide the amenities for you that we would like to find in our vacation spots. The kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher and disposal. I've added new pots and pans and dinnerware.

You will enjoy the 42 inch TV and DVD in the living room or the 19 inch TV in the bedroom, both wall-mounted.


You'll also experience 'service' that will bring you and your friends back to us on your next vacation to Tybee. And, you will be back! There is no place like Tybee.

For a more prompt response to your inquiry, PLEASE use email. Email requests are answered several times each day. I try to return all calls but am away from my phone from early morning until late afternoon and sometimes the volume of calls doesn't allow me time to return them all.

You will be happy with the provisions in the Dancing Dolphin. We don't charge extra for a reasonable supply of towels. Your dishes and cookware are plentiful. We even have a good selection of DVDs and CDs for your enjoyment and we don't charge you a deposit to use them. We don't require a damage deposit. Accidents happen and we understand that.

I truly want you to enjoy my Dancing Dolphin - feel at home, and have what you need and want for a great vacation. And, yes, I ask you to treat it as you would your own home. That's the most that I ask of my guests.

I have a generous cancellation/refund policy. I do not expect you to ride out a hurricane while I head for higher ground. Neither do I expect you to suffer the loss of your vacation money if a hurricane happens to visit while you're here. Your unused days are gladly refunded if the island is evacuated due to a hurricane. And, I won't try to sell you insurance to make sure that I do the right thing.

I have on-call help 24/7 so you're never left unattended if you need assistance.

I use a private housekeeper for cleaning and laundry. You can expect to have a clean place to vacation with good quality, comfortable linens.

                            Love this darling condo. Everything you need for a relaxing vacation. Nice furnishings, decorated so cute, clean and well maintained. What a wonderful location on Tybee's North end. Steps to the beach. Viewing the huge ships going to and from the Savannah River was very interesting. Must see Fort Pulaski...even if you are not a history buff the Fort and the grounds are wonderful. Downtown Savannah...so charming. Tybee Pier provides a great view. We did not dine out much because My husband likes to cook (kitchen had everything he needed), but never had a bad meal out(Huckapoo's, Coco's, A.J.'s and North end beach club). I liked the shops within walking distance from the condo the best. Patti answered all of my questions and offered a lot of information to help us discover the area. We had many beautiful beach walk/sit/read/fish days even though the locals said it was the coldest winter they can remember. We are from the frozen North...so we thought is was pretty nice. This community is a fine example of Southern hospitality. Thanks again Patti for making us feel so welcome...See you next year!

                            This was exactly the vacation we envisioned when we booked with the owner of this lovely condo! It has all you need for a fab beach experience..we loved exploring the island and some of our fave dining experiences were Sting Rays, Crab Shack, AJ's, Tybee Time and Sunrise and Breakfast Club....we walked a lot and enjoyed watching the shrimpers and container ships constantly going and coming. Great vibe and we will come again...this condo is well furnished and the bed is very comfy! Thanks for the great accommodations!

                            Owner response: Randy and Linda ... you are so kind. I appreciate your wonderful review of the Dancing Dolphin. What they don't tell is they were on Tybee during the coldest weather we've had in 20 years with the water pipes frozen overnight. These sweet people didn't have running water for 24 hours and still didn't care. That's loving a condo. Please come back next year and I'll owe you a night !

                            We chose the Dancing Dolphin condo because of the description, the owners willingness to work with you if there is a hurricane, and because of how nice Patti was. We've never used VRBO before and despite all of this we were still a little leary about it. When we arrived at Dancing Dolphin we were more that pleased with the condo. We loved it from the beginning! The condo is very clean. The pictures are accurate, it is a beautiful condo. You can tell that it is decorated by someone who actually cares about their property. Everything is so thoughtfully placed and utilizes the space perfectly. They have provided everything you might need. I forgot beach towels and thought we would have to go buy them, but there was some there. They had beach chairs, a boogie board, a beach bag, and even jellyfish sting spray, just in case. The kitchen was very well stocked. There were plenty of towels, washcloths, toilet paper, etc. for us. There were CD's, DVD's, and a stash of tour pamphlets and maps to help you plan your stay. The bed is super comfortable and cozy to crawl into at night. Our favorite place to sit was the porch. You can watch freight ships go by, shrimp boats, and dolphins everyday. The dolphin tours go right in front of the condo. The condo is close to your car and only steps away from the beach. If you choose the Dancing Dolphin you will not be disappointed. There is a lot to do in the area. After touring Fort Pulaski, going on an Old Savannah Tour, doing a sightseeing boat ride, walking up the steps of Tybee Lighthouse, or just walking along the beach the Dancing Dolphin was a great place to come back to and just relax. Patti was really nice and very helpful with everything. We didn't have any problems while we were there, but before and after she e-mailed us back quickly and answered every question we had. We would love to stay at the Dancing Dolphin again when we go back to Tybee Island!

                            I just want to say THANK YOU. WeI found the condo to be everything you said it would be and more. Nice, clean, comfortable, nicely furnished, and more than adequately equipped-stocked ... all that we might have wanted. And, the dolphins were such a nice BONUS. Thank you very much, and don't be shocked should we visit again.

                            Having decided to spend the week of the 4th of July in Savannah I set off to find the perfect place to lodge while there. After scoping out quite a few places on HomeAway.com I found the add for the Dancing Dolphin and after reading the reviews and seeing the pictures of the condo I e-mailed the owner and after getting a very fast reply I knew this will be a great vacation. Patti was so helpful and friendly it made me that much more excited to finally start the vacation. And if I was excited then it was tripled once my husband and I walked through the front door of the apartment! The first thing that struck me is how immaculate the place was. It is decorated beautifully and is super cozy and comfortable. It has THE MOST comfortable bed I have ever slept in . Having spent a few days here I was amazed hto noticed how very equipped the condo was with every little thing you might need. There were even boogie boards and beach chairs on the patio for us to use. And did we ever! The pool and the beach are literally right outside. I have to say that I have absolutely no negative words about the Dancing Dolphin. I must also say that Patti is one of the nicest people I have ever delalt with. Thank you very much for a very memorable vacation!

                            The one bedroom was very nice and beautiful decorated. We could look out back patio and see the big boats pass by and lots of other boats. There wasn't a day We didn't see Dolphins . Enjoyed the walks every day to the mouth of the Savannah River to main body of ocean. Bring your fishing gear and fish just behind condo. I'm not a fisherman but enjoyed watching others. We spent 2 days in nearby Savannah and that was a lot of fun. I have recommended Tybee Island to my friends. Lots of great places to eat and A.J. was our favorite.

                            Our stay at the Dancing Dolphin was so enjoyable and relaxing. The condo has a spectacular view of the ocean and Savannah River. Everything was provided from boogie boards and beach towels to a comfy bed. Patti was so wonderful to offer the easiest set up/take down Aerobed which was also comfortable. The condo was pristine and well kept. There is a short walk to the beach where dolphins, shells and sun abound, but not crowds. We grew up on Tybee and find this part of Tybee to be the most charming and quiet. Patti was so delightful, helpful and accommodating and I would stay here again without hesitation. Our sincere gratitude for a memorable time!

                            Our experience was wonderful at the dancing dolphin. The view from the deck was spectacular. Watching the dolphins and the big ships coming in was pretty cool. We will definately go back.

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          Why the Owner Chose Tybee Island:
                          After working on Tybee for 10 years, I decided to purchase a condominium so I bought the Dancing Dolphin in 2005. I've lived in Savannah my whole life but spent very little time at the beach. Working on the island I was able to have a unique view of the island activities and the people. This island, genuinely, has the most loving and carefree people you will find anywhere. It's a peaceful place and the kind of place you're proud to offer and share with others. I've now been working on the island 15 years so I'm always close by for my guests. I'm now excited about upcoming upgrades to make the Dancing Dolphin my second condo offering a special place just for couples. I hope everyone will enjoy the new Dancing Dolphin.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          I don't spend a lot of time in the Dancing Dolphin. Because I work on the island and rent the condo, I usually go home at the end of the day. My grandchildren love the beach and enjoy the condo. My relatives look forward to the off-season when they get to have 'their turn' with the condo. I tell my friends that my daddy didn't build me a dollhouse when I was a little girl. So ... when I got to be a big girl, I bought the Dancing Dolphin and made my own dollhouse. I enjoy decorating it. I love changing the pictures and the bedding. I look for things to add that will bring my guests enjoyment. It's a fun experience.
