About Cathy anmdTom 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 development 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.

Cathy anmdTom Colasanto purchased this condo in 2006

Why Cathy anmdTom Colasanto chose Tybee Island

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, andoffering 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. We are proud of the more than 100 reviews from past and returning guests.

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 location and terrific unit

  • 5 of 5

We stayed from Feb 20-25. The weather was perfect and the off-season smaller crowds made the island even more enjoyable. The unit was well provisioned, very comfortable, and nicely decorated. The view of the beach on the balcony was great with our morning coffee and evening wine. If you have trouble climbing stairs this may not be the unit for you since it is three flights up. I hope to return.

Great Stay at Tybee Island

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Cathy & Tom’s beach view condo! Very cozy place and practical layout. When we weren’t out exploring Tybee Island and Savannah, we spent a good portion of our time on the deck overlooking the beachfront. We would definitely recommend to others.

Relaxing Babymoon!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a rental unit that would provide the relaxation of being on the beach, but also close enough to Savannah to venture out for day trips to explore a new city. Tom and Cathy's condo was perfect! They were very responsive to any questions we had prior to our arrival. The condo itself was clean and had a beautiful view. We got lucky and had 75 degree weather in February. It was walking distance to a number of shops/restaurants and was an easy 30 minute drive from Savannah. Overall, we had a great time and enjoyed our time on Tybee Island & Savannah.

Listen to the rolling waves!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on Tybee Island even though it seemed to be the rainy season. The condo was very comfortable and just the right size, and the location was perfect. Just a hop across the street to the beach, and a couple blocks from shops and restaurants. Thank you Cathy and Tom for the welcoming bottle of wine!! We enjoyed the lighthouse and the history of Savannah and the surrounding areas.

Beautiful condo perfectly located near the beach

  • 5 of 5

Spent four nights after Christmas in this wonderful condo just steps from the beach. It was a little too cold for us to enjoy the beach, but we still had wonderful views. The condo is in an excellent location, near the south end of the island, nice and quiet, but a short 20-minute drive to Savannah for daily tours of that city. We also visited the pier, the lighthouse, and several arts and crafts shops on the north end of the island. And there's a convenient grocery store just down the street.

The condo was very comfortable and spacious. All needed kitchen gadgets and utensils are provided, so I was able to easily cook dinner two of the four nights we stayed. There are plenty of comfortable seats in the living room, and the beds are very comfortable, too. The owners also put little informative notes everywhere, and I found the note on the tv remote to be most helpful! I also did a small load of laundry in the large capacity washer and dryer!

I highly recommend staying at this condo when visiting Tybee Island or Savannah. Thank you Tom and Cathy for allowing us to stay in your sweet island home.
