About Tom Colasanto

Cathy & I met after we both suffered tragic marital losses. We were both born and raised in New York, but actually met an fell in love in the Savannah, GA area.

We first lived in a rural suburban but realized that without any children living at home, that an urban area was more our liking. we moved to downtown Savannah in 2005 and have enjoyed every day here in our walking community.

Tom Colasanto purchased this condo in 2006

Why Tom Colasanto chose Coastal Georgia

Cathy always wanted a place by the water. We looked for years until we settled on our Magnificent Ocean View Condominium. However, since we are both very active people and discovered that we could not spend as much time at our Ocean View Condominium as we would have liked to, we elected to share our home and all its beauty with others, and began using it for short term rentals.

What makes this condo unique

Our home is in an excellent prime location within walking distance of almost everything Tybee. Our home is a show place and has a fantastic ocean view. We are located on the south end of the beach where most of the activities take place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tom & Cathy,

I would love to brag on your condo again at links below, except we bought a new computer and I have not bought Microsoft Office yet, so I have no word doc. to type anything in. Weather was perfect for us, after all, we left below zero temps in Illinois. We also love the peacefulness of January, so it was all good. Hoping to stay again next year for 2 weeks if you'll have us!! Thanks so much for the gift certificate also, we always eat at Spanky's at least once & this time I had something other than the stuffed quesadillas I love so much, because we ate there twice! Thank you again for everything!

In all the years I’ve been vacationing on Tybee Island, I’ve always gotten a hotel room. On this year’s spring trip, my friends and I decided to try out a condo and I’m so glad we picked this one. Not that there’s anything wrong with the hotels on Tybee, I’ve always had good stays and service out of all the hotels I’ve stayed in, but having the amenities of a condo made a definite improvement. The condo was beautiful. The location on the South end was near perfect. Within walking distance of all the shops, restaurants, night life and pier, and just steps from the beach. The view of the beach and ocean from the porch was fantastic. I love to cook and entertain and having a fully working kitchen was wonderful. We loved having the washer and dryer in the condo also, helped keep things tidy for the time we stayed. Cathy and Tom: Thank you so much for your hospitality. The bottle of wine, bottled water and chocolates you left out for us on our arrival was such a nice personal touch. I just can’t say enough wonderful things about our stay and accommodations. We had a great time and look forward to staying in your condo again in the future if you won’t mind having us. Thank you again. – John V. Cronan

This year in Tybee Island

  • 4 of 5

Great place to get together and visit. The four of us have been meeting some where every year. Two of us have been doing this for the past 40 years. This was my 33 year and our newest friend for the last ten years. Really nice condo with ocean view. Tom and Cathy made us feel welcome with a personalized note and refreshments. We even had a piece of chocolate on each pillow. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Quick drive to the lighthouse. Easy drive to Savannah for sightseeing and shopping. Thanks for the hospitality.

First time in a rented condo, but not our last.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely condo. We felt so at home. Loved having a washer and dryer on premises, so handy. The view of the ocean from the balcony was a wonderful way to start each day with a cup of coffee. The location of the condo to restaurants, shops and most importantly the ocean couldn't have been more convenient.

Great Location on Tybee

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend getaway on Tybee. The condo was nicely decorated and very clean. When we arrived there was a personal welcome note with our names, and water bottles and a bottle of wine. That was a very pleasant surprise! The condo had everything we needed. Restaurants were right around the corner. We loved sitting out on the deck in the rocking chairs and porch swing as we people watched. From the deck there is a nice view of the beach. I had questions for Tom and he was quick to respond via text. Thanks for your hospitality Tom and Cathy!
