About Karen Merritt

My husband and I both grew up in Georgia. I grew up in Savannah and he in Atlanta. We have been married for 32 years and were lucky to live in many places across this country as we traveled for work and raised our three children. We returned to our beloved coastal Georgia 4 years ago. We currently live in Savannah and desired a weekend getaway place of our own and found this piece of heaven on the Sapelo river.

Karen Merritt purchased this townhome in 2017

Why Karen Merritt chose Townsend

While searching Zillow for waterfront properties for sale in coastal Georgia , the townhome caught our eye . We decided to take a ride down I-95 one Saturday and check it out . Upon arriving and seeing the water views and meeting the people we were sold!!! We could see ourselves relaxing on the deck watching the sunrises and sunsets and enjoying the beautiful coastal scenery. It brought back all the memories of spending time in the area as a small child and we knew we could share with our kids and grandchildren the unique coastal experience. Living a short distance up the road gives us the ability to enjoy our new place and also share with others looking for relaxation and tranquility!!!

What makes this townhome unique

There is nothing like the marshes of coastal Georgia - where wildlife is abundant and the breezes are special. Time is measured by the tide. This townhome offers a boat launch ramp on site and a deepwater floating dock if you desire to vacation with your boat . The dock has a place to clean fish or crabs and the ability to launch your kayak in the coastal waters. The views from the living area and the deck are breathtaking. Stroll in the evening down to the dock and enjoy the breezes and watch for dolphins or take avantage of the views from the swing on the river bluff.

Beautiful view and townhome on the Georgia Marsh!

  • 5 of 5

The marsh views from the deck and living room were gorgeous! The tide clock was very helpful for us Out-of- Towners. House is very clean and well stocked. Plenty of towels & hooks...comfy beds and pillows. Board games came in handy on rainy nights. The location is perfect if you want to visit different islands and towns. We visited St Simon’s and Jekyll. Karen’s Restaurant recommendations were spot on and her neighbors gave us several tips. We had a great time & this is one of the cleanest rentals we have visited.
