About Paul & Mary Gilker

We bought this condo because of its great location so close to the beach at the South End of Tybee. We live on Tybee full time and wanted an extra place just for rentals, and overflow when our family visits! We have many wonderful summer memories spent at the beach and want to provide a place for you to make your own memories. Tybee is a special place and we want to share it with you.

Why Paul & Mary Gilker chose Tybee Island

We like the South end of Tybee because it is close to the beach, Back River, and you can walk/bike where ever you want to go.

What makes this condo unique

We set the condo up as a place we would want to stay and are proud to have our family and friends vacation in it. We hope you enjoy staying there, too!

Clean, comfortable and close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleased with the condo, really is just steps from the beach! Very clean, very comfortable and plenty roomy enough for the two of us. The balcony was a favorite place to sit when we weren't enjoying the surf sun and sand!

It was within an easy walk to shops and restaurants. Thanks, Paul, for the tip on where to watch was a bonus to be able to see both sunrise or sunset from the beach. (And we loved AJ's Dockside restaurant!)

One note: grills are charcoal and in an unlit area. So, if you plan to grill out, be sure you have what you need. We were glad we had our bikes...they made getting around on the weekend (when the traffic was crazy) much easier.

Great place to stay!

5 star all the way...Both the condo and the owner !

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo, literally 101 steps to the beach. Kind and friendly owner, easily accessible and eager to be a great host. The owner lives only minutes away if you ever need him (we haven't in 4 stays total now), and responds promptly to and questions or requests. Our favorite place to stay on our favorite island !

Great location and great owner

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late to Tybee and Paul was very accommodating to meet us late in the evening. He took additional time to share his local knowledge and to ensure we felt at home. This condo is very clean and highly recommend the property.

Very clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by Mary who was extremely friendly. She showed us around their very clean and comfortable condo. Gave us the low down of Tybee Island and let us know to call if we needed anything. There was no need to call, they have everything you need to enjoy your stay. The condo made our visit to Tybee Island a very fun and relaxing trip. Thanks

Awesome weekend trip

  • 5 of 5

It is great location to the beach and resturants. I would recommend renting a golf cart to get around the island. Paul is an awesome person to rent from. Rooms and condos' very clean.
