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'. Full-time residents in Middle TN, 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, sent us. We barely slowed down. Obiviously '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 went to work and . . . . .we'd like to welcome you to FOXHAVEN. A lazy, crafty get-away at the beach.
What makes this House unique
SOoooooo VERY close to the beach. Screened in porches with furniture, lights, fans and heater. LOTS of room. Two of the bedrooms are large with a full rec/bonus room upstairs with internet, wifi, flat screen TV, microwave, mini-fridge, blender, toaster, and coffee maker. A small table upstairs can be used for breakfast, then cleared to play games and puzzles that are available. Frank believes in king-sized beds, so they are in 3 bedrooms. Then there's the kid-friendly bunk room. The dining room seats 10. Dishes, glasses, silverware and cookware suitable for your gang; even a crock pot and roasting pan for a family dinner if you'd rather eat in. The large laundry room with 2 full-sized washers and dryers allow you to keep it all clean and dry. 3 bathrooms, a hot/cold enclosed shower, and 2 convenient "make-up" areas make sure everyone is ready to hit the streets of Tybee or nearby Savannah in style. There are hair dryers in all bathrooms, and iron and ironing board, in the laundry room. The porches, fire pit, hammock, and enclosed yard 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. There's even a large crate and bowls onsite, so no hauling from home. FOXHAVEN is on the 'shuttle route' so you can usually flag a ride if you need to run into town. Certainly you can call the Tybee Trolleys 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.

Great older home with character
We had a wonderful time on Tybee Island. The house perfectly fit our needs and though it is an older home, we found nothing lacking. The beds were comfortable, the amenities were sufficient and the baths were well-stocked. There could have been additional towels and washcloths, but thankfully, I always travel with extras! We had an issue with the a/c, but our contact on the island worked with the homeowner and contractors to get the situation remedied quickly and to our satisfaction. Our fun was not interrupted in the least! I am so thankful to Amy, our island contact, and all those who helped fix the problem. This is a great place to stay and just a short walk to the beach with easy access.
It was the perfect place for our family to spend the holidays together
We had a great experience at foxhaven. The house was great, location was great and our overall trip was great. Would highly recommend and look forward to future visits
So glad we found this property...it was wonderful! Space is accommodating, and location is perfect. Would stay here again.
We had a great family reunion. The property was quite adequate.
We had a couple issues that did made life a bit uncomfortable. The downstairs thermostat kept reverting to 69 degrees and we froze. Had to keep getting up in the early morning hours and turn it back to a tolerable temperature. The dehumidifier is extremely noisy. Also, there was no propane in the BBQ grill tank so we ended up using the small charcoal grill. Our entire group had a nice time and we were happy to find a location to accomodate us.
