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!

Absolutely loved this condo and Tybee Island. We were there 5 days and it was great. The beach was amazing and the condo was so very nice. I would certainly recommend this rental to anyone looking to go to Tybee Island. Thank you Tom & Cathy for your warm hospitality.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The Condo was nicely furnished and had all the amenities that one would need. The condo was within close proximity to numerous restaurants and the beach was just a short walk across the street. Two parking spots (bumper to bumper oriented) was the only challenge we encountered. We had one truck and one smaller hatchback. Our neighboring parking mates had a truck as well. The two trucks made things very tight getting in and out and required a little coordination. The view was perfect and the balcony was a great place to enjoy the evenings. We truly enjoyed our stay.
