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 19 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.

Marsha was so kind and professional. This was the most amazing place we have ever stayed. We had five families plus two girlfriends in the wedding party stay and there was more than ample accommodations. All the beds were soooo comfy and the kitchen was fabulous!! Perfect home to celebrate my daughter’s wedding weekend!!
Awesome house in Tybee Island
The Owner of this beautiful house is amazing. She was immediately responsive to any minor issues we had during our stay in February. In addition to enjoying our amazing kitchen which has everything you could possibly need, we loved the location. We could walk to everything except our trips to Savannah!
We had an amazing time here in Tybee Island staying at Marsha’s home. Pictures do not even do it justice. It’s so much cuter in person. We had a blast. Thank you for everything.
There were 18 of us from 5 families and it was a wonderful reunion week! Marsha couldn’t have been a better host.
Great house for family Christmas gathering
Great house and location! Marsha was very accommodating. We had a very enjoyable time!
