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.

Why Mary Jo Weaver chose Tybee Island
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.

Beautiful house with everything you need close to the beach!
The house was about a block from the beach one way, and shopping the other. It was very nice and spacious fitting 15 of us perfectly. The two screened in porches and large back yard was great. 10/10 would recommend, great property and owner!
We absolutely loved staying at Fox Haven!!
We had 13 adults and 3 children in our group & we all had plenty of room! The kitchen was my favorite, because as the family cook, it had everything (plus some) that I needed to make everyone breakfast each day! There was plenty enough seating & all of the utensils, pans, etc that I needed! We loved being so close to the beach & the backyard was awesome too! Mary Jo was so great, we will definitely be back! Thank you for sharing your beach house with us!
Great location! Everything one needs for a comfortable stay.
Loved being so close to the beach!
House had plenty of space for everyone. It was a nice home to stay at. Felt like I could stay there forever.
Foxhaven Survives ANOTHER hurricane beautifully
We didn't actually get to stay! Hurricane Irma caused a change of plans. But, we've stayed before. The booking agent and site managers were Very Good to keep us advised in advance of the steps to be taken in case Irma hit while we were there, and then to inform us of pending evacuations. Money was refunded quickly. We understand there was NO damage; just debris in the back yard and screened side porches which will be cleared in a few days. We've stayed at Foxhaven before and learned that the first phase of the house was built in 1898. So Foxhaven has seen more hurricanes and tropical storms than we can imagine. The house rental calendar fills up quickly so we suggest you check it out and book soon. We are!!
Spacious, close to beach
The house is close enough to the beach that a few trips back and forth for lunch or snacks is no problem. The house had plenty of space for 10 of us. Thanks for a great stay!
Turtle Watching, various local YMCA and Art Association events. Owners have participated in: Early St. Patrick's Day Parade, Pirate Festival, Easter Sunrise service on the Pier, 4th of July fireworks on the beach. Also surfing events, charity marathon runs.
