Why Marsha Marks chose Tybee Island
Tom and I met on the West Coast and always wanted a home near the beach, but were unable to pay LA prices. And hated LA traffic. When Tom took a job here in Savannah, we discovered Tybee Island and realized it was just 19 minutes from Downtown Savannah, and we loved the laid back Artsy, non-resort kind of feel. So, we looked for three years for the perfect piece of property - well, the perfect piece in our price range and in the location we wanted. We finally ended up buying a woman's back yard. We had the yard divided into a legal lot. The woman who sold us the lot, still lives behind our home. She purchased the lot our house sits on - 30 years ago for $1500.00! (She made a good investment!) When we were looking for a bit of land to build on Tybee Island, we knew we might want to use the home as a vacation rental someday, and we wanted to be close to the beach, yet away from the noise. Close to the shops, yet away from the crowds. Within walking distance to all the eating places, and especially close to The Breakfast Club! This lot, seemed to have it all, Location, Location, Location, plus, it was the only lot we could find that didn't look into someone elses house - our lot looks onto a 60 foot tall live Oak tree. And OK, I confess, it was the only lot for sale on the whole darn street. So we bought it.
What makes this House unique
The large spacious upstairs. The pool. The double convection ovens. The Master Suite that has three seperate sections and a private deck. The pale yellow bamboo floors. The six burner cooktop with the pop up vent. The loft feel with tons of windows and natural light. The THREE large decks - two off each floor. The Air conditioned and insulated sleeping porch, that feels like a treehouse - on the top deck! Location, Location, Location.

We had an amazing time here in Tybee Island staying at Marsha’s home. Pictures do not even do it justice. It’s so much cuter in person. We had a blast. Thank you for everything.
There were 18 of us from 5 families and it was a wonderful reunion week! Marsha couldn’t have been a better host.
Great house for family Christmas gathering
Great house and location! Marsha was very accommodating. We had a very enjoyable time!
Christmas away from home
Well how should I start upon arrival we were greeted by an employee or friend of owner to somewhat show us the ropes of the house and she did not leave out a thing. The house is nice and roomy there were 4 couples ranging from 27- 50 somethings, a 7 month old, and a 83 year old. Form baby to great grandma everything you could possibly ask for was there even a Christmas tree. Plenty if parking and not a glitch anywhere in the house or outside.So if heading to Tybee or Georgia and need a place near the beach and you have a crowd with you this the place . Thanx again Marsha . Pasquale and Cyndi
Comfortable roomy home
This was really a lovely home. Marsha who owns the property greeted us warmly and friendly. The hot tub wasn’t working when we arrive but she made sure that her repair man came by that day and fixed it. Plenty of room and everything was in working order. I would stay here again if I was back on the island.
Thanksgiving Family Trip
This property, the area, the atmosphere and the owner are all amazingly wonderful! The house is everything and is equipped for any and everything you can ask for. My family (18 people) met here for thanksgiving and we not only had a fully equipped kitchen (pots pans plates bowls silverware but as well as seasoning condiments coffee and more) but we also had restaurants close by the beach is a block away and the owner is a text/call away. Very accommodating and helpful when needed and when not needed you don’t hear from her. My family and I are overly appreciative and happy with this property definitely would not go back to Tybee without staying here. Absolute best!
