About Tom Colasanto

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

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.

What makes this condo unique

Excellent location within walking distance of almost eveything Tybee. Our home is a show place and has a fantastic ocean view.

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!

Great Condo - Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as advertised - Tom and Cathy were great hosts - reachable by telephone with any questions. The location directly near the beach on the south end of the island was perfect for access to the beach, restaurants, 12th street pier, and shopping. I would highly recommend to other families.

Nice rental with a great view

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are accurate, although they don't do justice to the beautiful view from the 2nd story covered porch. The beach is just across the street. Tom worked with us on an early check-in where we found a bottle of wine and chocolates awaiting us.

We would definitely stay here again and hope to do so in the near future. There are restaurants in easy walking distance as well as many others not quite so near. Our favorites are AJ's Dockside, the Crab Shack, the Sundae Cafe and the Breakfast Club.

Tybee Island is a unique and wonderful place and this is a well-maintained condo with a view that makes the price a steal.

Great location, property, etc!

  • 5 of 5

Will most certainly stay here again. This is in the perfect location on Tybee island. Right in the middle of all the shops and restaurants. Walking distance to everything. Condo was spacious and clean. The bottle of wine and chocolates on the bed are a great touch. Parking under the building is nice, keeps the car cool. 2 parking spots in really nice. The only downfall is there is no elevator and the entrance is on the 3rd floor, 2 stories up from ground level. Our group was fine but if you have trouble climbing stairs, this is not the place for you.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at your vacation home so thank you for opening your home up to us. When we first arrived there were chocolates on the beds which my daughters thought were fantastic and exclaimed "Best Vacation Ever!" We also enjoyed the wine left for us by Tom and Cathy.

The view was stunning. Could smell the ocean and watch the waves all day and night!

They happened to be filming Baywatch 2017 while we were there, so we had fun watching the actors come and go, and all the camera people.

We could walk to the stores and many of the restaurants, which was a huge plus. The rocking chairs on the porch were our favorite.

So highly recommend this vacation home. Thank you again!
