About Kent Failing

Retired programmer living on nearby St Simons Island with my wife, June, who is an Episcopal priest.

Kent Failing purchased this house in 2011

Why Kent Failing chose Coastal

Tybee is such a great place. When we found this great house with balconies, and elevator, a large 2 car garage, and a spacious rooftop for stargazing or sunbathing, we had to buy it.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Just wanted to let you know that our prom group had a great time at your beach house this weekend. Thank you for allowing us to stay. I will be back bringing family with me next time.

Outstanding stay

  • 5 of 5

The Tybee Island Lighthouse looks like a painting outside the large windows of Egret's Nest, with lots of porches, an elevator, five bedrooms and close enough to Huck-A-Poo's restaurant for gyro salads and carnivore pizza. Dogs loved chasing each other around the enormous coffee table, and sticking their noses out the balcony with their people to watch people bicycling and jogging down the quiet streets or walking to the beach. Swap your cares for a lapful of relaxation.

Ho Hum rental

Pros of this house:

We could bring our dog

Large enough for our multi-generational family

Low key and relaxing vibe

Cons of this house:

I think the cleaning team is ripping off the owner because:

we found food under a bed

we found someone's e cig under another bed

the kitchen cabinets were splattered with food

there were food drippings in the freezer

we found a child's faded tank top tucked at the end of a bed when we were stripping them

broken lawn furniture sitting by front door

the kitchen cabinets lack organization -- there are all sorts of things jammed in cabinets and some of the pans in the cabinets did not appear clean

the dining room rug is fraying badly and is taped down with orange duct tape

the handle on the oven fell off twice when we were trying to get hot dishes out

dishwasher really really did not work -- we would run it and then have to hand wash the dishes.

If I had come in the summer time, the walk to the beach would be tough with little ones.

I think the biggest disappointment is that after our stay, I chose not to post this review, but contacted the owner first to let him no. Almost a month later he never responded. That speaks volumes about the fact that this house is no doubt an investment and not a property he really cares about personally.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing to stay in our home, and thank you for your very specific review. We are quite concerned about the issues that you raised, and we are working to resolve them. Please know that this is our home. We have spent time there with family and friends, and we find it peaceful, serene, and lots of fun. We especially like the porches and the almost constant breeze from the ocean that we get to enjoy. Our purpose in renting our home is to allow others to find those same pleasures. Tybee Island affords a gentle, unpretentious lifestyle that we like to share. We have discussed with the cleaning contractor the specifics of what you found – bedrooms and kitchen – and have been assured that nothing similar with happen again. We have not had a single complaint about cleanliness in two years, nor have we seen a problem when we have been there ourselves. We are very sorry that this slip in quality happened on your visit. It should not have happened on anyone’s visit and we are setting new checks to be sure that it never does again. To insure better service and complaint response in the future, effective 1/8/2014, we are turning over management of our property to a management company.
During this stay the property was under previous owner or management.

great stay at Tybee

  • 5 of 5

This house was just as it was described, very large, comfortable and located right near an entrance to the beach. You can't go wrong with this place if you need a place for 13 which is what we were. Communications with the owner/manager were easy also.

The island is slow, low key just the way we like it. We went kayaking with the rental of a boat from Ocean Kayak people on the main drive into town. They are great.

New Years Day at Tybee!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was amazing!!! Everything was clean and beautifully furnished. The views of the ocean and river from the porches and widows walk were breathtaking. The beach was literally a 2 minute walk from the house. Restaurants and shopping were all within walking distance. Historic Savannah was only a 25 minute drive across the beautiful marsh. The sunrise and sunsets were unreal. I would recommend this to families, wedding parties, college students, and anyone just wanting to get away for a beautiful vacation. Egret's Nest on Tybee Island my vacation destination!!!
