  • Beautiful and spacious beachfront condo!

    "My mother and I stayed here for a week in early October. This condo is wonderful. It is so much more spacious than other 1 bedroom condos, very nicely decorated, it was right on the beachfront, and the balcony was great for watching the sunrise! We had weather in the mid to low 70's and were able to sleep with the slider open each night to hear the sound of the waves. We enjoyed dinner at the Sundae Cafe, loved the fried oysters at Coco's Sunset Grill, and found some other great restaurants in Savannah."

  • We really enjoyed this rental!

    "This unit is accurately depicted through the photos and description. In fact, it seemed even nicer once we got there. It vas very clean and very well-maintained. Christa the owner is VERY personable, informative, and from Savannah! She was very available via various contact means to answer any questions. She also has many ideas on local activities. There was everything to do nearby from renting bikes, going the the YMCA for a good workout right across the street, to a couple of very good restaurants "right around the bend!". I would recommend this unit to anyone, and we would all be very happy renting it again! Thank you Christa!"

  • Family Vacation

    "This house is very clean and well kept. Loved the outdoor shower for rinsing sand off children before coming into the house. The Decks are a nice place to gather and have dinner and family time. Both a gas grill and charcoal grill were provided. The kitchen has everything you could possible need. The bedrooms were perfect for what they were used for and that was just to sleep. The beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of linens and pillows. The backyard was also fenced in which made it nice with small children, they could play and we could worry a little less. The walk to the beach is short and easily traveled with small children, it is sandy dunes. We had chlidren aged from 5 months to 11 years old. The owner is very thorough, and provides you with all the information needed for a great vacation. John is very friendly and was there to greet us upon our arrival. He made sure we knew our way around the house and even offered to pick us up anything from town that we may have forgotten. Overall I would stay here again if available when we decide to come back. "

  • House of Blue

    "This place is even better in person than you can imagine from the photos. No matter what type of vacation you are looking for, this house is the perfect backdrop. If you want to come with some friends, drink some beers, enjoy a homemade low-country boil, or find a relaxing place to have a family getaway, hands down you won't be dissatisfied. After a long day at the beach, one of our favorite things to do was come home, get a little refreshed in the outdoor shower and then head over to the dock house. There, we would unwind a bit with some cold refreshments and rehash the fun we had earlier that day all while trying to have a conversation that wasn't focused on how awesome of a time we were then having at the dock house... it was like an endless loop of feeling great and being in a place that fostered feeling great. Either way, you're a winner (and that's just kicking it in the dock house). The blue house, itself, has a screened patio for both upstairs and down, it's extremely comfortable and has all the amenities you'd find at home. It's the kind of place you stay and the whole time you're trying to get used to how awesome it is. In fact, I wish I was there right now! Also, the location is perfect... you're 15 minutes from Savannah, a couple minutes from downtown Tybee and the beach, and a short walk down to the Crab Shack (which we thought would be hokey, and it is a little, but it's a lot of fun, the people who run the place are very nice, and they even have real live alligators!). And I know I've mentioned the dock house, but one more thing really stands out... When the tide goes out, you get a chance to see all these little creatures that are normally under cover of water. It's really truly amazing in that you begin to realize they too have their own little communities and families and it all goes together in a giant circle. And then the tide rolls back in, and hides all those secrets, and if you're lucky and want to spend the time relaxing with it all, you get to be a first hand witness to this circle. And it's something little, but it's affirming, much like blue house. If you want a place to stay that will actually save you money, save on the frustration that vacations tend to spawn sometimes, and feel comfortable, safe, clean and at home, then definitely don't procrastinate. Go, have fun, and if you can, never leave! "
