Overview

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!

Loved the Banana at the Coral House!

  • 5 of 5
My brother and I and our little Shih Tzu had the greatest stay at the Banana over a long weekend. The beach house was stocked with everything we needed and was convenient to everything. We enjoyed cooking out in the back by the pond and watching the big screen TV too. We can't wait to come back!

This was the perfect place for my husband and I during the 2014 Tybee Pirate Festival. Great location, not too far from the middle of the island. The beach was really close and we enjoyed walking on the beach. We will rent this property and in the future! Thank You for being so accommodating.

Not quite what we had in mind.....

  • 3 of 5
This is undoubtedly at first glance a very pretty and comfortable little condo, with an exceptionally petite and pretty bedroom, very relaxing. There are two air conditioners in the windows, but are quiet and super-efficient. Everything that you need is there, including an enormous flat screen TV; a dishwasher; micro-wave; coffee maker; blender etc. There is also very efficient washer and dryer which are available for the use of all three condos in a very well equipped laundry room on the side of the building. The owner was very laid-back and easy to deal with.
However, I have to say the bad stuff.....it really is in need of some maintenance work: all the paintwork is grubby and shabby; the doors to the cupboard under the sink don't close properly and the small garden outside which we had hoped to sit in in the evening with a glass of wine was so scruffy as to be completely uninviting. The patio/grass was full of weeds and there were lots of old rusted beach chairs, a beach trolley which was ripped and sundry other grubby items. It really did look very run-down. There is also a seating area at the back which is in much the same state of repair. Walking down the side of the house is a sort of open shed which is full of other junk. I'm sure that when it was all originally renovated, this was a delightful little house.... not so these days.
Inside there is a marked lack of cupboard space in the kitchen with the assortment of mis-matched dishes, and some pots and pans being stored under the sink along with Windex and Cascade for the dishwasher. Another cupboard had some cups and odds and ends of glassware.... no wine glasses either !
I am sorry to be so negative about this little condo as it is very well located, and really could be very pretty, but it has to be updated.

Owner's Response: The dishes and pans were out of place. The dishes should have been in cabinet drawers; the pots and pans should have been in the stove drawer. We have since added a wall cabinet that is dedicated to dishes. At this guest’s suggestion we have provided wine glasses. The only paintwork that needed touching up was some nicks in the paint on the lower cabinets. Our handyman will take care of this. He always repaints anyway in the off-season. The sink doors could have been closed properly with effort, but our handyman has adjusted the hinges so that the doors close properly without effort.

The patio for this unit is enclosed by a picket fence and covered with white pea gravel. Some low weeds were growing around the edges. Our yard maintenance service was asked to keep that area weed-free, as well as the rest of the property. We frequently see people enjoying that patio, which has a rather nice wicker umbrella table with cushioned chairs.

Beach supplies and beach toys sometimes get scattered. We have organized them and eliminated those that are not useful. Salt water and salt air are rough on beach chairs. They usually don’t last a full season. We probably should not supply them, but we will continue to do so, at least for a while.

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.
