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!

Wonderful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

My son and I spent 3 nights here on a much-needed break. The condo is beautifully decorated, the owners had some surprising welcome gifts (including chocolates on the pillows!), and there is no way to beat the view from that balcony! Tall chairs make it easy to see over the dunes to the beach and the ocean. It was a fabulous vacation, and we felt we could have stayed forever. I'm definitely planning to return!

Owner's Response: The basic reason Cathy & I chose this home for our vacation rental and leisure getaway is not only the fabulous ocean view, it also involved the comfort of being a home away from home. The relaxed atmosphere that we have created overtime is the result of our guests providing us with their opinions and reviews. We are proud to be one of very few homes that have such a high standard and an excellent history of guest reviews. Cathy & Tom Colasanto

Beautiful view, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this location. It was just what we needed- the view and closeness to the beach that my sister in law has to have and the close proximity to restaurants and stores that I love. I would highly recommend this condo.

TRULY OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5

WE HSVE BEEN VISITING THIS CONDO OWNED BY TOM & CATHY SINCE 2012, WE VISIT EVERY SEPTEMBER. WE EVEN WENT ON OUR HONEYMOON AT THE CONDO.

IF YOU WANT A CLEAN CONDO, REASONABLY PRICED,WITH A GREAT VIEW OF THE OCEAN AND VERY VERY CLOSE TO SHOPS ,GROCERY STORES ,AND RESTAURANTS ,LOOK NO FURTHER. THE LOCATION IS PERFECT AS THE SOUTH PART OF THE ISLAND IS MORE SMALL TOWN "BEACHY" ATMOSPHERE WHICH MAKES THE WHO;LE TRIP UNIQUE. TOM AND CATHY ARE TERRIFIC PEOPLE AND VERY HONORABLE AND SINCERE.

Wish we could have stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

We had booked a week long stay but after a day and a half we were evacuated from Tybee Island because of Hurricane Irma. What a shame because we loved the place. Sitting on the balcony the ocean was in view and the breeze was divine. The condo was well appointed with everything one needed for a week stay. The beach was a two minute walk away. Tom and Cathy were very informative and available for any questions. Just wish Mother Nature had cooperated because we know this would hav been one great week to relax.

Owner's Response: We too were disappointed that Hurricane Irma disrupted your stay. We looked forward to you sharing our home and exploring Tybee Island and downtown Savannah. Unfortunately Mother Nature took preference! Irma was gracious enough to pass us by Tybee Island with very little damage to some homes. Fortunately our home did not suffer any damage whatsoever, and part of that reason was the fact that your and your family took the time out before you left to secure all the outdoor furniture. Thank you once again for visiting our home and we look forward to a future visit where you can enjoy more agreeable weather. Cathy & Tom

Such a great condo!!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is in a great location with a great beach view. It was stocked with everything we could have needed and then some! The covered parking was great for the rainy weather we (unfortunately) had with a tropical storm off the coast. But, I did find 3 shark teeth on the beach! We would definitely rent this unit again to come back to Tybee. Thank you again, Tom and Cathy! And thank you for the sweet welcome for our wedding!
