About Meg Shelton

I lived in New Jersey until age 12 when my family moved to Warner Robins, GA. After attending the University of Georgia I moved to Atlanta and I currently reside in Atlanta. I Loved my summer vacations as a kid "at the shore" in NJ so my first choice for a beach house was at the Atlantic Ocean. Since I was still working full time when I decided to buy a beach house it had to be the shortest trip for me to get to there. I now LOVE Tybee, Savannah, and all of Coastal Georgia.

Why Meg Shelton chose Coastal Georgia

As I researched Tybee Island, I found the long-time family owners prefer the South end of the island for it's proximity to the Ocean pier, the back river fishing pier, the boat launch and the solitude provided by the beach that wraps the southern end. I couldn't be happier with the location of my home on this peaceful side of Tybee.

Our December Weekend at Meg's House

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful time meeting our daughter, son-in-law and three grandchildren at Meg's house in Tybee Island. The layout of the house was ideal for us, with the master suite upstairs and the two bedrooms downstairs. All rooms were spacious. The entire house was fully equipped, with all we needed in the kitchen, lots of toys and videos, TVs in each bedroom and living room, a pingpong and foosball table in tne basement garage, as well as seven bikes! All we needed and more. And the location was perfect - a short walk to the beach and the grocery store. We highly recommend this place!

Wonderful, except for Hurricane Mathew

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Meg's place even though Hurricane Matthew sent us packing a few days earlier than expected. The house is in a great location and we loved all the bikes she had, that was one of the main reasons I picked her place. They were all in good shape to ride all over the Island. The house itself has a great layout and very comfortable. My adult children kept on saying how impressed they were with the house. Since we had to leave early due to a mandatory evacuation of the Island, Meg was wonderful to work with on returning 2 nights stay in a very timely manner. We loved eating at the Crab Shack and AJ's, wonderful local fare. As we were preparing to evacuate we were in frequent contact with Meg about her place, not sure of what the hurricane would do to the area. She was kind enough to keep us updated on what we should do and how to help her with the property. We definitely would like to return to Meg's place and finish out our exploring of Tybee Island sometime in the future.

Owner's Response: I think this review is for another property as I didn't have guests come in on Oct. 13. Also, owners names mentioned in the review are incorrect. Just FYI in case you want to post on the correct property! Meg
