  • Great Value

    "This property is a great value coming in priced slightly less than a hotel. The condo is not on the beach but is on the bay and has a beach/sand/water play area. You could easily launch a paddle board or kayak in the bay. The pool is very nice with a large deck, separate shallow pool for kids and large pool for big kids and adults. There are two bicycle rental stores within walking distance. Biking is the best way to get around Tybee Island. The beach is within biking distance or a short car drive. The condo complex is clean, quiet and safe. The unit itself is equipped with just what you need. You can cook a meal. But if you want all the creature comforts from home, bring them with you. The unit is spacious enough for two adults, maybe three if you all get along - or two adults and two small kids. "

  • 2 adults, 3 teens and a tween and never once did we feel crowded!

    "We got married on Tybee on June 6th and were lucky enough to enjoy this condo with our 4 children for an entire week. Private gated parking, 20 steps from there to the elevator, up one floor, and you're there. Nicely finished newer condo with all the comforts of home. Modern appliances and electronics, fully equipped kitchen, wood and tile floors, excellent location, well maintained, tasteful decor, and a great view from the huge patio added up to a wonderful week on the GA coast. Walk to one of many nearby bars, restaurants, and shops or rent bikes to get around the rest of the island and you'll never need to move your car (until you're ready to go explore historic Savannah, a quick 20 minute drive away). Excellent beach access and a well kept pool and hot tub were a hit with the kids. French doors to the patio from the master bedroom were great for enjoying a quiet cup of coffee in the early morning hours. I had spent quite a bit of time on nearby Hilton Head Island, SC so Tybee was new to me. After spending a week getting to know the island I can definitely recommend it and will surely visit again! A MUCH more laid back feel than HHI (think Key West) and a wonderful, eclectic group of locals. The perfect place to let your hair down and relax. Thanks so much Brett and Suzanne - we'll be back!"

  • Perfect Weekend at The Beach

    "I came with a large group of friends, and the space was perfect. We came inside and were extremely satisfied. Very clean, well kept, lively decorated/furnished and well supplied! It was a 3 minute walk to the beach, and pretty much incredible for the price. Not sure why anyone would want to waste money at a hotel with this wonderful house as an option."
