About Caren Madsen

I am a creative soul. Living on the island at the end of the world... at least that is what it feels like sometimes. Surrounded by water on 3 sides there is no where to go except Savannah. And what a place that is! Two of my favorite places, Tybee Island and Savannah.

Caren Madsen purchased this house in 2013

Why Caren Madsen chose Coastal

The house is lovingly restored, integrity true to it's age. It is in my thoughts, the perfect summer house. Porches and beaded board, bright and airy, the house has many spaces and many amenities not found in modern structures. It has grace and charm of it's own. Located 1 1/2 blocks from the ocean and close to the grocery. Most everything you want on the island is within walking distance.

What makes this house unique

Porches, an outdoor shower. A porch swing. Privacy and outdoor spaces. Antique home with modern fixtures. Hardwood floors and ceiling fans. A comfortable place to take your shoes off. Clean and lived in, not overly designed.

The home was comfortable, convenient, and had all the necessities!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Tybee Island! The location of this house couldn't have been more convenient, as it was across the street from the market, walking distance from the restaurants/bars, and of course, across the street from the beach! The home is equipped with everything we needed, from kitchen stuff, plenty of blankets and pillows, beautiful porches, and beach toys/chairs! Check in/check out was seamless, and Caren had some great recommendations! I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great Tybee Beach rental!

Perfect beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Summer House on Tybee is an absolute jewel. We felt so comfortable and at home. Caren goes out of her way to provide the nicest of everything needed. From bedding and kitchen supplies to games, movies, books, beach stuff and even a shell and rock collection. I will be back!!

Great cottage for the weekend

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage for us and our 2 kids. The furnishings were nice and the beds were very comfortable. The screened porch was very nice. We loved having access to bikes and beach equipment provided by the owner. We will definitely be back.

Great family retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was wonderful. We had our 3 year old and one year old with us, and the second bedroom with the bunk beds was perfect. She also had a pack n play for the little one. As previous reviewers have said, essentially everything is walking distance from the property. The house was in great shape. No complaints at all. Owner lives on first floor of property and was very responsive, and even gave suggestions regarding things to do.

Great cottage rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice rental. The screened-in porch is great. The outside shower is fantastic for showering off the sand from the beach. It's only a couple blocks from the beach so it's a very easy walk. The house is very comfortable and has everything you need. The grocery is just across the street which is very convenient but be aware there's a lot of noise from trucks backing up and unloading early in the morning. I would recommend replacing some of the beach stuff that is unusable from being rusted out like a new useable beach umbrella would have been nice. There's plenty of restaurants in the area. I'd highly recommend Coco's and AJ's Dockside for the ambiance and food. I would not hesitate to stay here again. We had a fantastic vacation here with our two 4 year old boys.

Owner's Response: Mike, I am so sorry about the beach umbrella, and wish you would have mentioned it in time for me to correct the problem while you could enjoy it. It is the nature of metal in this climate to corrode easily. I am getting another umbrella today - hopefully you will return and I'll be sure to check the beach equipment prior to your visit. Unfortunately the proximity of the market is both a blessing and a noise maker - some days are worse than others and unfortunately you hit the wrong days. I am happy to see these problems did not impact your overall enjoyment during your vacation. I hope to see you back on Tybee in the future! It is always great to see young children visit - and your boys are adorable! Thanks for staying and do come again. Caren
