Coral House is a duplex less than one block from the beach. Banana Tree covers the entire first floor and middle level (loft) of Coral House. The 3rd level of Coral House is The Peach Penthouse, which has its own outside entrance and stairs. Banana Tree has 2 living rooms and is much more spacious than the normal 3-bedroom cottage. With its large back porch, balcony, privacy fence, and lily pond/fountain, Banana Tree is ideal for outdoor entertaining or simply enjoying a summer rain shower.
What is unique about Tybee Island? Barrier island just 20 minutes due east of historic Savannah . The island is small, just 3-mile diameter, and half that is tidal salt marsh . Birthplace and home of a C-list actor; chosen home of an A-list actor; nesting home of loggerhead sea turtles. Great dolphin viewing - virtually guaranteed on the north end of the island. Dolphin boat tours are always available, but sitting on the north beach is just as effective. We once watched a band of dolphins frolicking with a delighted kayaker. Impressive pier that extends way, way out into the water. Each end has a nice covered pavilion.

Wonderful experience! (:
The coral house is beautiful & well maintained! The owner,Mr. Ted, was super nice & attentive with anything we needed. He made sure we were ok & had everything we needed to make us feel at home & comfortable. The house is very close to the beach, that we didn't have to drive there. Great service & the house has everything you need! From shampoo to a blender. I loved how its pet friendly & how I was able to bring my dog along without having any problem. The neighborhood is quiet & calm. Me & my family enjoyed everything about it (: its a wonderful experience & a wonderful place to chose to stay on your vacation (: I STRONGLY RECOMMENDED IT TO EVERYONE who wants to visit Tybee island! Call the owner & make reservations,trust me you won't regret it!! (: thanks Mr. Ted for allowing my family & I to stay there! (: may God keep blessing you always!
Love, Abby & her family! (:
Such a comfortable house!!
Our stay at Banana Tree house was awesome! Owner was always just a text away and very prompt in responding! House was close to the beach and yummy restaurants!! Would def stay here again!!
The home was comfortable and neat and had nice additions. The walk to the beach is excellent and it is an easy drive to downtown Savannah. There were some issues with the back kitchen where repairs were needed and the curtain in the loft in the picture was not there when I visited. Check to make sure those things are taken care of before your stay.
The curtain had been damaged by a previous guest and was taken down for replacement. The curtain has now been replaced with a new one. All repairs in the kitchen are completed.
Amazing in every way.
Ted and Matthew were wonderful and helped us with everything. The house was decorated, clean, and stocked to perfection. I have stayed at many places on Tybee and Ted/Matt's properties are always spectacular. They have a full crew: housekeepers, maintenance, and technical support at your disposal. Its so rare to rent outside of a hotel and have that service available. Me and my family will defiantly be back.
Very clean and convenient !
Banana Tree was VERY clean and well-furnished with everything we needed for a family getaway. It is an older true "beach house," nothing fancy but I think that makes everyone relax! It could use some updates and definitely a woman's touch as far as kitschy stuff on the walls - I was itching to get started! Really sleeps 6 in COMFORT (beds were VERY nice and comfortable) but kids would be fine on sofa beds. Plenty of free parking, which is a pain in most areas of Tybee. Owners very nice to deal with. Would gladly stay here again.
Shouldn't be rented. Need lots of work. Bathroom smells like urine. House has a damp moldy smell in whole house. Shower curtain is missing half of the hooks. Big holes in the bathroom walls from the towels bars breaking off the wall. Towel bars haven't been repaired. Walls are filthy throughout house and need to be repainted and patched. Outside exterior of front door is filthy and covered with spiders and cobwebs. Only 3 old gross towels in bathroom, 3 wash rags and no hand towels. Towels are all mildewed smelling.
I am shocked by this review. We are always quick to correct any problem that arises, but this very unhappy guest gave us no clue that anything was amiss. Some of this review is just mystifying. The front door and porch had been freshly repainted about a week before this guest arrived and was certainly not filthy. Of the 2 bathrooms one of the towel rods was loose. It was easily re-tightened. A previous guest had knocked a toilet paper holder off the wall. There was no time to patch the hole between guests, but it has now been patched and looks like new. The missing shower curtain hook has been replaced. Any time the towels are unsatisfactory, the cleaning service will bring more. All the guest need do is ask.
