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 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.

Foxhaven Survives ANOTHER hurricane beautifully

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

Perfect and fun

  • 5 of 5

This is our second trip here this year. We LOVE the new bathroom! We continue to love the location, the size of the house, and how comfortable we are squeezing in 4 families. Can't wait to go again next year!

Loved the place. Lots of room. Amazingly close to the beach!!!

  • 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.
