  • Nice Condo for a short vacation

    "This was our first trip to Tybee Island and the condo met our expectations. Don't be fooled by the "Savannah Beach Racquet Club" title though, it's just a few condo buildings with a pool and a walkway to the beach, nothing special. My husband and I did appreciate the availability of the bikes, we used them to ride down to the starting line of the Tybee Island half marathon and back to avoid the traffic. We also loved the books available to read, especially the destination/adventure ones, since we like to travel. The condo was small, perfect for two people. I wouldn't recommend anymore than that. My only two gripes were the queen size bed was very uncomfortable and the towels smelled kind of like mildew, like they hadn't been washed for a while, which I'm sure wasn't the case, but they just smelled like that. Other than that, it was the perfect spot for our long weekend and we did enjoy ourselves. Thank you very much for letting us stay and enjoy the property!"

  • Very close to beach

    "We stayed for a short getaway. The unit is very close to the beach. The kitchen is well appointed, the furniture very comfortable and good quality. It is more than we typically afford, but fairly priced for what you get. Favorite place was the upper deck comfy chairs overlooking the ocean. Perfect for morning coffee or an evening cocktail."

  • Great getaway!

    "I recently spent 4 nights in this beautiful home with 8 women for a getaway. It was well appointed and so comfortable. It was perfect for our group! I especially loved the bright kitchen/living room area with lots of windows. The location was great, within easy walking distance of the beach and many restaurants. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us!"
