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.

Bachelorette Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was very beachy and comfortable! We had 15 girls for a bachelorette party. There was plenty of room for all of us to hang out and play games or have meals. We walked to the beach during the day and we caught Ubers to Savannah at night (which was surprisingly reasonable). The beach is so close and we could just walk back if we forgot anything or wanted a sandwich. There is also a restaurant, liquor store and convenience store within walking distance. We had a wonderful trip and we are so glad that we chose this house!

great location and yard

  • 3 of 5

Hands down, the best thing about this place was the location, minute walking to the beach. The yard was also great and I am thrilled they took pets. Another favorite aspect was the large kitchen, which sat 10 comfortably. The owner was helpful and easy to deal with. The house itself is old, which is fine, it just meant the rooms inside were pretty small. The up stairs with its own bath, king bed, and living space would be great for a family. The two downstairs rooms did not have any closets, which was bit challenging. The reason I gave it a 3 was that it rained pretty hard when we were there and we had a active leak. When I called the local number they knew where the leak was (in-between the kitchen and the side porch). If you know there is a leak, why not just fix it, rather than have renters deal with it?

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We have been working to get the leak repaired over the last several months as to not inconvenience renters, and are hoping to have the issue resolved very soon, once the house is unoccupied for a few consecutive days so workers can have the needed time to make the repair . We do apologize that this was an problem for you and will continue working to improve.

Welcoming place for a group beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was great--very helpful and communicative, even before we had settled on a date. The home was clean and all of the descriptions were spot on. We stayed for a long weekend with 7 adults and 5 kids and had plenty of room. We loved how close to the beach Foxhaven is! The kitchen was well stocked & we really enjoyed being able to grill. It was very hot but there were plenty of fans--even on the fabulous porch off the kitchen--and the AC worked great. We're already talking about when we can come back and stay again!

Great Girl Scout Trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our Girl Scout troop in July! The beach was so close the girls wanted to go all the time! The house was great and had everything we needed! The owner was easy to work with and helped us find our missing Kindle when we returned home! Thanks for a great place to stay while we visited Tybee Island and Savannah Georgia!!

Perfect location for a family

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Foxhaven. It was the perfect location for our extended family. We had grandparents, to parents, to college aged kids to infants with us and everyone had a great time. The house was beautifully decorated and had plenty of sleeping space. The drawbacks were the location of the second bathroom ( inside the master suite which made it a little difficult for everyone to access) and the bunk bed and trundle beds were uncomfortable.

Overall, we had a wonderful stay!

We were very pleased. FoxHaven met our needs perfectly.

  • 4 of 5

For our group of 15, everyone was comfortable and had plenty of room. An extra bathroom would be great, but not that big of a deal. Loved the screened porches and laundry was good to have. Would stay again!
