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 HOT (Home of Travelers) 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 HOT 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 (similar to a Radio Flyer) that you can load your beach gear on and pull onto the beach. Bikes are also available to guests --- a great way to explore the island.

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) Thai & Hawaiian Cuisine

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).

HOT 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).

Great time on Tybee

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 30, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
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.

LOVED THE BANANA!!!

  • Stayed: Jul 2012
We had such a great time and enjoyed our stay here! We love Tybee and have been coming for the last 5 years, this was our first time staying at the condo. It was cute and cozy and provided everything we needed for our short stay. I would reccomend bringing a blow up mattress or something for the pull out the Hubby complained a bit about his back in the morning, but other than that it suited us well! Close walk to the beach was a plus for us! Ted and Jody were super great! We like to buy groceries and cook to save money, and it was easy to have our family pizza night, and mexican night in the stocked kitchen! We did leave behind an apple pie and some other things (by mistake :) So I hope someone was able to enjoy it! LOL Anyhoo great time on Tybee again! We hated to leave, our 2year old, Tybee (yes we named her after the Island:) refused to get out the car when we arrived home! Ya'll will be hearing from me soon!
Owner's Response: In the storage room of Coral House we have thick memory foam mattress pads for all the sofa-sleepers. The sofas won't fold up with the pads on them. I dropped the ball in not letting these guests know that the pads were available. I have now made sure that the information book in each unit has a note about these pads. By necessity sofa-sleepers have much thinner mattresses than normal.

Cute Condo

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 5, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
I was worried about the walk to the beach with 2 little ones, I have to say it was not bad at all. A 2 minute walk straight down the road. All in all the condo was clean with cute decor. I will say for a family of 4 it was a bit tight and the sofa bed was not comfortable so I would highly reccommend it for a couple not neccessarily for a family. We may consider one of the larger units in the back next time for more space. For a dog friendly unit there were no smells which was good and we really appreciate having a place that accepts pets. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your condo. We LOVE Tybee!!
Owner's Response: Sofa-bed mattresses are thinner by necessity than regular mattresses. This one is fairly new and in very good condition.

Almost Cried

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!
