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.

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.

What a great get away Tom & Sue took very good care of us and provided all the small details about the area and what to do while we were up there. We will be back for sure.

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

Immaculate home with every detail covered for you!

  • 5 of 5

Meg has thought of everything! You need only bring clothes, groceries & toiletries. She has a traditional coffee maker & a keurig! Koozies, different table settings, any & everything you would find in your own home! Beautifully decorated & very clean. Would definitely stay there if we were to visit Tybee again.

We enjoyed our stay in the house. It was clean and just like it is described. It was in a good location and the homeowner had lots of stuff to take and enjoy the beach from sand buckets to bikes. That was a nice plus of the place. My only complaint and the only reason i didn't give it 5 stars was the overwhelming feeling of being afraid to live in the house because of all the fees. We had already paid over 100 dollars for a cleaning fee but told if we didn't do all the laundry and folded it we would be charged even more. I got confused why we paid so much for a cleaning fee but we had to do most of the cleaning. This is understood (maybe) if we had stayed longer than two days but some of my time was taken in laundering and making sure it was dried and folded in order to leave which was a requirement on the list of rules on the fridge. I didn't appreciate that part. It was a definite weight to make sure our last night was about laundry instead of family and we had just done our vow renewal so instead of a nice evening we had to spend time going thru the house. It takes a lot away from family time on a very short weekend. Other than that it was the house we expected.

Owner's Response: I have called this guest to inquire about her complaints. Guests do not have to do laundry. There are beach Towels at the house for those who don't bring their own and I do ask that if they are used they be washed before check-out. I apologized that this stressed her so, and said it would have been perfectly fine if she had not laundered them. I have a check-out list that I email to guests Before they arrive so everything is understood ahead of time. I have no "hidden fees". My cleaning fee includes towels and linens and is very reasonable compared to other comparable places on Tybee. And, the cleaning fee is the same whether someone stays 2 nights or 2 weeks. Everything must still be cleaned so there is no way around that. If anyone has a problem or complaint while staying in my home I ask that they please Text Me, Call Me, Email Me and I'll respond immediately. This is stated on the Check-In instruction letter. I want guests to have a Perfect Time at my home and do have Many repeat guests.

Our family of 5 stayed here during labor day weekend and could not have enjoyed it more. This house had everything we could ever want and we easily could have fit a few more people comfortably. I would highly recommend this house on Tybee Island!
