About Mary Jo Weaver

Frank and Paula Fox (Teamfox) hail from Lebanon, TN. We honeymooned in Savannah in 2004 and bought 2 condos in the Historic District. With bad knees and stairs to climb, and the fact that we came to the beach every day that we could while in Savannah, we ended up purchasing 'Foxhaven' at 3 Jones Avenue. Our home in Lebanon was built in 1906 so we have very little fear of tackling the renovation and upgrading of this home built in 1898. We love to travel and we've tried to include all the amenities that we would look for ourselves. We can't believe we are so close to the beach! Frank loves surf-fishing and flew his first kite on Tybee's beach. Paula loves the ocean and kite-flying and wave watching. . . and turning old houses into enjoyable homes. They have two grown children. Their son will be married on the beach, 6/7/2015. And the wedding party will stay. . . .at FOXHAVEN until they boot us out for their honeymoon! Their daughter is an event planner (go figure) and is thrilled to add FOXHAVEN to her event venues. So book early and often, we'll be filling up quickly. We believe in angels and the efforts that 'they' have made to ensure that FOXHAVEN becomes a reality for many to enjoy through the years.

Mary Jo Weaver purchased this house in 2014

Why Mary Jo Weaver chose Coastal

Teamfox was 'just looking'. We had recently sold condos in Savannah because of high association dues, traffic, etc. There were no plans to add another property for some time. 'Just looking' we passed the 3 Jones Avenue listing that our wonderful real estate agent, Lyn McCuen, Coldwell Bankers, gave us, we pretty much kept on driving. We said 'too much of a fixer-upper. we already have an old house'. Then . . . .we took the right turn onto Solomon and there was the access to the BEACH. We stopped in the middle of the road with our mouths open. And we prayed that if this was in any way possible, we would try to make it a reality. Well, the stars lined up and the angel army has gone to work and . . . . .we'd like to welcome you to FOXHAVEN. A lazy, crafty get-away to the beach.

What makes this house unique

SOoooooo VERY close to the beach. Screened in porches with furniture and mini-fridges (no need to go inside for another beverage). LOTS of room. Two of the bedrooms are large with a full rec/bonus room upstairs with internet, wifi, HD flat screen TV, microwave, mini-fridge, blender and coffee maker. A game table upstairs can be quickly assembled and games are available. Frank believes in king-sized beds, so they are in all the bedrooms. The dining room seats 10 and there is a crock pot and roasting pan for a family dinner if eating out becomes a hassle. The large laundry room with full-sized washer and dryer allow you to keep it all clean and dry. Each bedroom will have a laundry basket and clothes rack available, AND there is a 'dressing area' downstairs between two bedrooms, bath, and laundry. This area has mirrored medicine cabinet for primping, so one can get ready while others are sleeping or bathing. There are hair dryers in both bathrooms (with adequate lighting for makeup, etc) and iron and ironing board (but our humidity makes them a rarely needed commodity) in the laundry room. The porches, a 4-burner gas grill, and rather large lot make life outside as much fun as indoors, in case there are those who aren't totally in love with the nearby (really!) beach. We are pet friendly with an extra deposit and prior approval. FOXHAVEN is on the 'shuttle route' so you can probably flag a ride if you need to run into town. Certainly you can call them to come for you. There is trash pick up and an on-call handyman for minor emergencies. Please. . .book early and often. You'll be pleased with the experience.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for letting our Girl Scout group use your house. The painted furniture throughout is so cozy. The decor is so fun for the area. Three big bathrooms. Everything was very clean. 8 girls slept upstairs and each adult had their own bedroom downstairs! had plenty of dishes and towels for our large group. Extra condements and syrup in the cabinet completed our stay.

Many memories made here for our Girl Scout Troop

  • 5 of 5

Our Girl Scout troop stayed at this house. We had 11 girls and adults and had plenty of room (and hot water). The girls took over the upstairs and pretty much only came down for meals and the ocean which is so close.

The house is in a quiet neighborhood and is constantly being updated. Don't miss that there are 3 bathrooms in the house. We were able to get everyone in and out of the bathroom quickly and all sit down to eat together. The outdoor shower to rinse off after being at the beach is a nice addition. The girls loved it.

Speaking of beach, it was like having our own private beach. We had very few people at it when we were there. The girls loved it. Other things we did while we stayed was a day trip to Savannah's historic district where we did a trolley tour with Old Town Trolley, ate lunch at Lady and Sons and toured Juliette Low's Birthplace. We also toured Wormsloe Historic Site and Tybee Lighthouse and at The Crab Shack. Last day we did an ecology session at Tybee Marine Science Center (Emily was the best) and did a dolphin tour with Captain Mike (saw lots of dolphins).

Thank you Fox Haven for a wonderful time and memories of a lifetime. This house did not disappoint.

Perfect Beach House In A Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Don't let the age of this house fool you. It is clean, very cool and roomy. We had plenty of space and it was no trouble getting to the beach. It is a short walk to the ocean; great access! The style of this house fits right into the environment of Tybee Island and the owner has even provided a little bit of history on this place. Convenient walking distance to The Sugar Shack, a seafood place, liquor store and a souvenir shop so once you arrive, you don't have to drive anywhere if you don't want to. There was a small issue with a breaker and it was repaired very quickly by an electrician. If I ever come here again with a large group, will definitely book this place again.

Great beach Home with lots of room!!

  • 5 of 5

Fox haven will be where my family stays every time we go to Tybee! The beach is just a small side street away. Very nice walk way right to the waters edge. The house is very spacious and comes with amenities not even listed! There are two washers and driers which was great for our multiple large family. The owner was very nice and answered all my questions before our trip and Amy was very helpful once we arrived. This was our first time to rent a house. Thanks for the memories Foxhaven!!

Charming Beach Shack Close to Beach

  • 5 of 5

Great for a low-key getaway, especially with small kids. 3-minute walk to the beach, fully equipped kitchen, great outdoor shower, tv/cable in almost every room. Two screened in porches were a nice, cool, bug-free spot to wind down at the end of the day. Plenty of good dining spots on/around the island. AJ's was the best of the ones we tried, but the seafood restaurant and ice cream shack around the corner were great too. Mattresses had you looking forward to your home bed by the end of the trip. If 30A and Gucci loafers are your scene, Tybee isn't for you, but if you're looking for a relatively cheap way to get a bunch of people to a nice, family beach that's not crowded, you'll love it.
