About Marsha Marks

Owner Marsha Marks is an author of several books - google her, and has been happily married since 1987 to the man of her dreams, Tom. They have one daughter, Mandy Marks.

Marsha Marks purchased this house in 2008

Why Marsha Marks chose Tybee Island

Tom and I met on the West Coast and always wanted a home near the beach, but were unable to pay LA prices. And hated LA traffic. When Tom took a job here in Savannah, we discovered Tybee Island and realized it was just 15 minutes from Downtown Savannah, and we loved the laid back Artsy, non-resort kind of feel. So, we looked for three years for the perfect piece of property - well, the perfect piece in our price range and in the location we wanted. We finally ended up buying a woman's back yard. We had the yard divided into a legal lot. The woman who sold us the lot, still lives behind our home. She purchased the lot our house sits on - 30 years ago for $1500.00! (She made a good investment!)

When we were looking for a bit of land to build on Tybee Island, we knew we might want to use the home as a vacation rental someday, and we wanted to be close to the beach, yet away from the noise. Close to the shops, yet away from the crowds. Within walking distance to all the eating places, and especially close to The Breakfast Club! This lot, seemed to have it all, Location, Location, Location, plus, it was the only lot we could find that didn't look into someone elses house - our lot looks onto a 60 foot tall live Oak tree. And OK, I confess, it was the only lot for sale on the whole darn street. So we bought it.

What makes this house unique

The large spacious upstairs. The pool. The double convection ovens. The Master Suite that has three seperate sections and a private deck. The pale yellow bamboo floors. The six burner cooktop with the pop up vent. The loft feel with tons of windows and natural light. The THREE large decks - two off each floor. The Air conditioned and insulated sleeping porch, that feels like a treehouse - on the top deck! Location, Location, Location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Marsha. We're all home safely after a wonderful week in your house. I want to thank you and Tom for all you did for us! You both went above and beyond any VRBO owners we have dealt with in the past. It was a perfect week, perfect house, perfect beach and great lifeguards. (They transported me to and from the beach in the lifeguard jeep.) I wrote a glowing review. If you didn't receive it let me know and I'll rewrite.

Thanks again, J

Perfect place for large groups to stay on Tybee!

  • 5 of 5

This house is nothing short of amazing! The amenities and finishes are top of the line. We rented this house as a base-camp for our bridal party the weekend of our wedding. 20 people may sound like a lot to be sharing one living space, but there are so many rooms and places to spread out, we were all still friends by the end of the weekend! The beds are pillow soft, the kitchen is huge, and the porches provide the perfect setting to sip on a drink and listen to the ocean. Marsha and her husband have put a lot of love and care into this home, and it shows. We couldn't have asked for a better accommodation for our friends and family on such a special weekend!

We too think the house is Amazing - and it is so nice when guests agree with us. We hope to be your repeat destination. We only have ONE vacation rental - and so we pour our life and love into it! :) Thank you for saying, 'it shows'

Perfect home for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I host a family vacation every year. This year I chose Tybee Island.

I was looking for a home that would accommodate my 3 children, their spouses and my two young grandsons along with my husband and myself. The Tybee Island Joy home was the most perfect home I could have chosen!!

The owner of the home, Marsha, was gracious and so very accommodating. She met us at the home when we arrived and walked us through the home showing us where things were and how things worked.

Anything that we needed such as baby gates, highchair, pack n play was available!

Marsha was only a phone call away to answer any questions we may have had.

The home is pretty much in walking distance to anything you want. You are able to walk to both the ocean and the bay! The most delicious sushi awaits within a few steps, and a ice cream and gelato shop just a few doors down from the sushi shop.

Back to the home...bedrooms galore (we each had our own bedroom and bath) and the beds were really comfy! Decks galore! Garage has a ping pong table which we had so much playing..or in my case, trying to play! The hot tub was very relaxing!

We happened to be in Tybee Island at the time of their annual Pirate Fest so we purchased some pirate items from the local shops and joined in!

All in all, this year's vacation is one we will be talking about for a long time!

Our 2 year old grandson is already asking "when can we go to our Tybee house?"

Thank you Marsha for everything!

Owner's Response: Wow! So kind of you to write such lovely things about your stay! We only have ONE vacation rental and I try and manage it with a small staff - and your review made my day! As a seasoned traveler - your words mean a lot. We also agree with you - that the house is just perfectly located to get to the shops (ice cream, sushi, and all the restaurants - with just a short walk) and we also love the Ping Pong Table in the Garage. Please make us your yearly get away home!

Lovely, Large Tybee Island Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed this large home for a wedding weekend and it slept all with privacy and multiple bathrooms. We had plenty of fun and conversation around the pool in the backyard. The owner was extremely accommodating with our group and concerns since our visit was right after a hurricane. The house and yard were in good condition with everything in working order.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jeanne, we were so happy to be able to host you after the Hurricane. Because we had the home built to the latest Hurricane standards - we survived with no flooding and no damage. We too love the many bedrooms and extra privacy on the three covered decks and one open air deck. My family loves the house so much - it's great when a 'stranger' agree's with us! So happy you enjoyed your stay - and hope to see you back! Thank you for the lovely review.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for saying the one thing that attracts more people to our home - than anything else. LOCATION! Right in the heart of Tybee - walking distance to 30 bars and restaurants and shops. 800 feet to the Atlantic Ocean. - I think the home is amazing as well - but so nice to hear 'strangers' say that. Please come back!

Tybee Island Joy and what a joy it was to stay at this house!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Marsha Marks' house the week of August 5-12 with 9 adults and two small children. The house was absolutely perfect with large spaces for gathering, a great kitchen and decks off of most rooms. The house is completely stocked with everything you will need from a baby chair to a pack n play to lots of dishes, etc. The location is perfect, easy to get to the beach, restaurants, bars, etc. If you rent a bike, which I highly recommend, you can virtually anywhere on the island. Marsha is the perfect host. She is extremely quick to answer any questions and has great advice on rentals, restaurants, etc. The week went entirely too fast and we can't wait to return. Thank you Marsha!!

I'm so pleased you found everything you need in the home. We also love the multiple decks and spaces. And I"m so glad the pack and play and baby seat for the table - worked for you!

Hendrix Family , WI

  • 5 of 5

Tybee Joy has really been a joy to stay at. We had 19 of us in our group that came down from Wisconsin to visit family and enjoy the beautiful island. The pool was awesome but tiny. It kept us cool on those hot days. I think the best thing about the place was the location. You could walk almost to everything that there was to do and see on the island. We all didn't have to get in our cars everyday and our big group could go do their own thing. Awesome! Marsha too came to the rescue when the central air had a water leak. She and the handyman came ASAP and fixed the problem. We had a wonderful vacation . Thank you Marsha .
