About Maureen

Hi and Welcome to Tybee!! My husband was born and raised in Savannah so he has been coming to Savannah Beach (Tybee!) since he was a child. I first visited Tybee in 1999 and fell in love immediately!! It's just a great little beachtown and a great place to kick back and relax. You can walk, bike on the beach, enjoy great food and good ole southern hospitality!! There's surfing, kayaking, jet skiing, dolphin watching, and many other fun activities for couples and families alike. We know once you visit Tybee you'll be back!! Enjoy your time with us!

Maureen purchased this condo in 2002

Why Maureen chose Tybee Island

Although we live only 10 minutes away in Savannah, something about being on Tybee always feels like a vacation!! Also, having Marlin Monroe's right there is great if you want a cold drink, or a bite to eat without leaving the beach! Or order and eat in!

What makes this condo unique

Our Condo is 59 steps to the beach (YES, my hubby counted them!), so you don't have to worry about finding a parking place, crossing the street with children and lugging beach chairs, coolers, etc. a long distance. And after a long day at the beach, you're back 'home' in just a few minutes!

A welcome surprise

  • 4 of 5

we stayed from July 18th through the 22nd. The condo was larger than most we have ever rented clean and very very well furnished with everything you could possibly need in the kitchen and bathrooms,,,many many towels . It is an easy walk to the beach ,and parking was easy and gated. The pools were small only one real pool small,and very crowded and 2 wading pools,but we were there for the beach. The owners were gracious and accommodating and easy to deal with. There were beach umbrellas in the condo and it is located right beside the elevator,but you never hear the elevator,,,we loved it !!

Every bit as advertised, plus responsive owners

  • 5 of 5

Our third trip to Tybee in as many years brought us to "Beachy Keen" in the Summer Winds building at Beachside Colony. Great stay, too brief!

No, it's not waterfront, but that's not what's advertised. It's a nicely kept, nicely equipped unit in a really solid location toward the head of the island, practically on the sand, across the street from the city park and playground, and with pools (plural) and Marlin Monroe's right on site. (Go-cups, anyone?)

Stayed with our two little girls and had a really relaxing time.

On top of which, the owners were terrific about an unexpected change in our plans. We booked in advance for four nights, then had to arrive a day late on account of a hectic cross-country move. Owners invited us to stay an extra day on the back end, and when our schedule wouldn't permit that, they insisted on refunding us the fourth night. Our check was waiting for us when we arrived at our new home out west.

With service like that and such a prime location for such a reasonable rate, you can bet we'll start our search here when booking a place for our fourth visit.

We booked this condo because we wanted an ocean front condo. This condo said oceanfront so I never thought to ask if it was since it said it was. We arrived and our view was the back of another building and a parking log. We were so disappointed. We would have not booked knowing this. I feel like this was false advertisement. The owner did offer to refund us the remainder of our stay if we wanted to find something else but it was the middle of July and everything was booked. I think that this should be stated somewhere on the owners VRBO ad. After contacting the owner letting them know we couldn't find another place and asked from some kind of discount since it was not as it was advertised I never even got a response. I thought even something would have been a nice gesture but I got NO response at all.

The condo is decorated cute but when you go to the beach you love to sit on the balcony and watch and listen to the ocean. Not happening here. No breeze because of the building in front of it blocking everything.

Seemed kind of dirty as well. My daughter took her shoes off and walked around and within the first hour her feet were black on the bottom. There was sand on the kitchen table when we arrived. Black hairs knotted into the towels which was kind of gross when you grab a towel to dry off after a shower.

We booked this because of all the great reviews and knowing it was ocean front. I hate to leave a review like this but I feel that others should know if they expect to look at an ocean from this condo.

Owner's Response: We would first like to say that our goal is always for our guests have a wonderful vacation and enjoy all that Tybee has to offer. It is never our intention to over promise and under deliver. We sincerely believe that this negative review is undeserved and unfair but unfortunately in this instance not entirely unexpected. These guests checked in on Saturday, July 18th but did not contact us with their concerns until Monday evening, July 20th. Although the assertion that we advertise our condo as Oceanfront is untrue, we immediately offered them a refund so that they could find another place more to their liking. There were, in fact, other rentals available. After refusing our offer of a refund, the guests said they would continue to stay at our condo but began asking for a discount/reimbursement again insisting that our Condo listing is deceptive and described as oceanfront. This demand for money became a common thread in their communications. Our listing clearly states that we are located 59 steps to the Beach. The cleanliness complaint is also an anomaly but I did want to address it as well. The best way for us to refute this complaint is to point out that the most frequently repeated complement in reviews regarding our condo is just how comfortable and clean it is. We discussed this via text several times until it became clear that no matter what our VRBO location description and numerous reviews actually states, they believe it reads oceanfront. After 8 years of being on VRBO and many delightful guests who continue to come back and visit us year after year, perhaps dealing with a difficult situation was inevitable. We pride ourselves on being accommodating and accessible to all our guests and not being able to communicate satisfactorily and sensibly with these guests was disappointing and frustrating to say the least. We do hope that anyone who reads this one negative review of our condo will also take the time to read our many positive ones.

Summer Winds

  • 5 of 5

Stayed over Memorial Day weekend at Summer Winds with my wife, 21 year old daughter and her boyfriend. The condo was perfect for us. It was very neat and clean with comfortable beds and was very well stocked with everything you would need. The location was right at the beach and was also convenient for going into Savannah. The owners, Maureen and Jim made check in and check out very easy and were great to work with. This was our first time at Tybee and we found a relaxed beach town with a wide beach and great restaurants to enjoy. We would definitely come back and stay again at Summer Winds.

Amazing place and a few things already there for beach lovers...chairs, umbrella.

Condo beautifully decorated & very cozy/comfortable and big enough for our family (me, my husband, our daughter & son in law and our two grandsons ages 12 & 3.

Great location, 3 pools on site and beach was beautiful and not crowded.

Close to area attractions: Fort Pulaski, Tybee Lighthouse, fishing charter boats, dolphin tour boats, downtown Savannah.

Great place, very relaxing & laid back.

Owners provided lots of info about area & very friendly when we called with questions & answered our emails in a very timely manner.

Everything on the property very clean & well taken care of. We do plan to return Summer of 2015.

Great vacation! Clean, pet friendly condo.

  • 4 of 5

We chose this condo because it is pet friendly and close to the beach. It is always a risk choosing a pet friendly rental because most of the time the place is pretty nasty...but not this one. You could never tell that another pet had ever stayed there. It was clean and had everything needed for our stay.

It is very close to the beach, has a great pool area with a restaurant and bar and is at a good location on the island.

This was our first trip to Tybee and we'll surely be back!

Thank you Maureen and Jim for helping my family have a wonderful vacation.
