CONDO BANANA --- BEAUTIFUL BEACH BARGAIN--- PET FRIENDLY. WIFI

Tybee Island Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment, sleeps 4

Newly refurbished and redecorated Condo Banana in Coral House on Tybee Island

Wireless DSL Internet service.

You don't cross any street to get to the beach. We are the 3rd house off the beach; that is, two houses are between Coral House and the beach. We are less than 1 block from a public beach access, which is an elevated wooden walkway that starts at our street (2nd Ave) and crosses about 50 feet of dunes before ending on the beach. We have a beach wagon that you can load your beach gear on and pull onto the beach.

A queen bed in the bedroom and a queen sofa-bed in the living room can sleep up to 4 people. For added comfort, central air conditioning is supplemented by a window air conditioner on the west side of the house.

Condo Banana is on the 1st floor just 3 steps up from the street and it is all on one level.

Restaurants Nearby: Within a block:

1) McElwhee's Seafood,

2) Tybee Grill

3) Sundae Cafe - a hole-in-the-wall, white-tablecloth, Gourmet

restaurant. Sundaes? Nah. (go figure) But The Sugar Shack has great ones.

4) The Sugar Shack - a decidedly downscale, inexpensive

place that serves a good breakfast, sandwiches, and hand-

dipped ice cream. Indoor or covered outdoor dining.

The 2 Lighthouses: Two lighthouses less than 3 miles apart but so radically different in character. As you approach Tybee Island, you see the impressive Tybee Light in the distance. Tall, dark, and handsome with a white cummerbund. He was honored a couple of years ago when he got his own US postage stamp. (In lighthouse circles that is akin to an Oscar.) But then as you cross the Lazaretto bridge onto Tybee Island, you look down to the left and blink. Is that a lighthouse in the water? Indeed it is. That's plucky little Cockspur Lighthouse. Weathered, plain white masonry. Not flashy at all, except ... At every high tide Cockspur stands in the ocean well off-shore. Only at low tide does the stony spur appear that supports the little lighthouse. A firm foundation after all.

Lost in the 40's/50's: So far the quaint shopping district near the pier has pretty much escaped the wrecking ball. Witness Arby's --- Tybee Island's only fast food restaurant. This is pretty much what Arby's looked like when they began in the early 60's. As for shopping, no Sak's here. We're talking beach shopping: T-shirts, souvenirs, Sno-Cones, umbrella drinks, seafood. But remember, for culture and serious shopping, there is colorful, historic Savannah, just 20-25 minutes away. Recommended reading: Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, an amusing look at Savannah's high- and low-life (about 2 years on the NY Times nonfiction best seller list).

Coral House is located about mid-beach between south beach (home of the pier and shopping) and north beach ( home of the majestic Tybee Light and the former Ft. Screven, now a museum).

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was our first visit to Tybee Island. We had such a great time! We almost cried when we had to leave. We brought our golden retriever, Scout, along, too. The Condo Banana was just perfect for the three of us. The owner, Ted, was very easy to reach and quick to respond. The island was awesome! We also enjoyed spending time in Savannah. We plan on returning next spring break!

Nice place, good location.

  • 4 of 5
This was a great place to stay on Tybee in a great central location close to everything. Room was decorated nicely and had a fully stocked kitchen. The only negative was the bedroom was kindof cramped and the bed small. My husband and I are both tall and our dog sleeps with us so it was a bit crowded. But it would be fine for shorter people. We chose this place because it was dog friendly, and we were thankful that we could bring our doggie daughter along. It was super hot and she got tired a lot, so we let her stay in the room at times when we went out. She enjoyed sitting on the bed and watching out the window. We would definitely stay here again if we bring her along. If we went alone, we might try something else with a view of the beach.. but I should also mention it is a short walk from the room.

Be wary

  • 2 of 5
Although there was sufficient room for the 3 of us to stay, the condo was not at all like it was pictured. It was very run down and in desperate need of a good cleaning. We had to mop and clean upon arrival and when we asked the owner if the condo had been prepped for our arrival he dismissed our concerns. Up to that point he was very attentive and answered all of our questions being first time vacationers. We were also disappointed that the grilling and outside area was not as described. One last mention is that we brought along extra towels and supplies after being told there were 2 towels per person even though we were staying 3 days and we come to find a stocked laundry room in the back of the house. It was nice that it was there but if we would have been told about it we could have packed much lighter. All in all, I would return to Tybee Island but we would never stay in the Coral House again.

In love with the banana

  • 5 of 5
Super cute condo! It was very clean and neat when we arrived, There were 3 of us (adults) staying and there was plenty room. Just a short stroll to the beach which was awesome since my mother walks with a quad cane and can't walk long distances easily. Location is great, easy access to everything we needed. Would def stay at the banana again!

Great time on Tybee

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have always had fond memories of Tybee - we actually got engaged on a trip down in 2002, so when our two year old kept asking to go to the beach, we thought it would be the perfect spot close to home. Condo Banana didn't disappoint. Ted was very accommodating to our weird arrival and departure time (my husband's employer cancelled his vacation, so we had to be creative with a late night arrival and early departure.)

Conveniently located right on the main drag, but just a short walk to the beach (without having to cross the busy street). We walked over to MacElwee's for dinner and really only needed the car when we went to church at St Michael's. Tybee really hasn't changed that much over the years - and that's not a bad thing. We set up a cot for our son in the bedroom with us. We brought PBJ makings for lunch, so we didn't really need the stove, but it was good to know it was there. Everything was clean and as promised. We had a great time and our son kept asking when we were going to go back to the beach, so we'll surely return soon.
