About Melissa McAlpin

We are George and Barbara, the Owners of this Condo, and usually live in Virginia. We are very fortunate to have Melissa, who lives in Tybee, as the Manager of our Condo. We first came to Tybee while visiting SCAD with our son in 2003 to help choose a college. From then on, we stayed on the island whenever we came to visit or pick him up. We loved the beach, the people, the food, the music and the special events. In 2008, after looking at many properties, we purchased our Condo. Our daughter was engaged on the island and later married in Savannah with her reception on the Pavilion/pier. It was a great party with many family and friends from all over the country. We visit Tybee as often as possible and are active in the Idle Awhile Condo Association. We have rented our condo for several years with a rental company, but decided this year to go on our own with the help of Melissa. Hopefully we will not just have renters but maybe make some new friends. We hope you enjoy our condo and Tybee as much as we do.

Why Melissa McAlpin chose Tybee Island

We looked at several properties and the the proximity to the beach as well as Tybrissa and the action was the way to go. 17th Place is a very quiet street and within close walking distance of the beach but also the Back river and its beautiful sunsets. Our daughter actually became engaged while enjoying a sunset from the small pier on Back River. Once at the condo, you may not have to move your car until it is time to leave. However, if you can tear yourself away from the sun, fun and charm of Tybee, it is only a 25 minute ride to Savannah. There you will find the arts and culture of Savannah College of Arts and Design, beautiful parks and squares, great food and of course the abundance of history and ghosts of Savannah.

Had a great time

We enjoyed our stay at the condo. The condo is well equipped and close to the beach. Melissa was very quick to reply to any issues we has and even mailed the phone charger my daughter left behind back to us.

Really nice place, about 1/2 block from beach. Within walking distance of almost everything.

  • 4 of 5

Nice kitchen, had everything we needed. Furnishings could use a little updating, but that’s the only “less than positive” comment. Close to beach, restaurants and shops. Located at South end of island, but still easily accessible.

Paradise Found, Tybee Beach, Georgia Sept.21-25

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condominium. Thank you for sharing your home. It is located in an ideal location, close to beach, shops, restaurants, etc. The condo was clean, even after a hurricane had gone through Tybee Island the previous week. Thank you so much.

Melissa was super! Whenever I called with questions, such as where to park, arrival,, etc., she called and responded right away. She even checked on us the morning after we arrived to make sure everything was as expected. Melissa had been dealing with aftermath of a hurricane, along with many in Tybee Island. She still remained helpful and kind. Super lady and very sweet and kind. Thank you, Melissa!

Close to the beach, clean, good neighbors, and easy property manager to work with.

  • 5 of 5

Tybee Island is a great family getaway. We always have lots of fun. Everything you could possibly want to do easily accessible. (Beach, fishing, nightlife, dining, historical sites, wildlife, etc. Only negative thing is parking is at a premium and very tight at most properties.
