We just got back from staying at this place. It was so nice. Very clean and Mrs. Cole was quick to answer any questions I had. We wanted to do a dolphin tour but decided not to spend the money on it cause we literally was swimming with the Dolphins at this place. The condo is very nice And quite. I would definitely go back again. My only complaint is water pressure. But over all I give this place 5 stars. Private beach, Dolphins everywhere and just a nice relaxing place to spend a vacation. Thank you Mrs Cole for sharing your place with us.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the wonderful 5 star review and for choosing to stay with us during your trip to Tybee! It is amazing how much dolphin activity there is on this end of the island, it is almost as if they put on their own private show just for you! So glad you had such a nice time while at My Ships Ahoy. We look forward to having you and your family visit us again!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay on Tybee Island. The owner, Donna Cole, was great to work with and answered my questions immediately. The condo was clean and had everything needed for a pleasant stay. The north beach area was quiet and not crowded during our stay. I can't wait to visit next year!

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for allowing us to stay at your condo. We had a wonderful time. The bed was comfortable and perfect for a small family. The condo was clean and provided basic things like towels, washcloths, and paper towels/toliet paper. We've stayed in condos around this club before and this one was probably one of the best so far.

The only things I would say is maybe some more comfortable furniture on the balcony and this condo is on the third floor opposite the elevator. There are two flights of stairs, though not a problem for us, it might for others. Also, there is no cable/satellite in the bedroom, only a TV/DVD player. There is strong wifi though.

Donna was very responsive to my questions and readily available via cell. I had no problems getting the keys/card nor did I have any other issues during my stay.

Owner's Response: I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay at My Ships Ahoy. I am happy to report that the futon has been replaced with a Chaise Lounge Sofa, and there new balcony furniture on the way! I will need to check on the cable in the room, as Comcast recently updated everything and they were supposed to hook it up to the bedroom. Thank you for the 5 star review, we hope to have you visit us again the next time you are on Tybee Island!

Great location and property!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our trip to Tybee Island (4 older ladies). The location was perfect - on the beach, pool nearby. My Ships Ahoy is more suited to a couple or very small family. It was a little crowded for 4 women but we made it work! We enjoyed eating out at local restaurants and a little shopping in addition to nightly walks on the beach and sun beside the pool. We contacted the realtor regarding a chair missing off the balcony and no beach umbrella. She quickly assessed the situation and got back to us. Just a few minor things we noticed - a few dishes should be replaced (cracked cup, bowl, glass/nonstick skillet in bad shape) but we were able to save some money cooking breakfast and lunch each day in the condo. With 4 women getting up at different times, a little WD40 on the door hinges would be helpful so they do not squeak as much! We also observed you might want to put some large felt squares on the bottom of the futon so the people below your unit do not hear it as much on the floor when it is being set back up into a couch position from being in the bed position. Thank you for sharing your place with us! We hope to come back again sometime!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the information as this is the first report we have had of the issues with the dishes, pans and doors. I was there yesterday putting in new bar stools and could not find any cracked dishes, so I assume you got rid of those for us. Thanks! Also, we have replaced the skillet with a brand new nonstick skillet. And took your advice to spray WD-40 on all the hinges. Again, I appreciate you letting us know so that we could correct these things. We look forward to having you back if you ever come this way again!

Not my best vacation

  • 2 of 5

First of all, I must say that the condo was clean and seemed well taken care of.

My husband and I did not care for the bed. It was very soft, however, it was almost too soft and it seems to roll you in toward the middle. There was a lack of comfortable seating otherwise within the condo. The futon is to be used mostly for seating in the living area, but the mattress slides down (like most futons) constantly. Other than that, there really isn’t a comfortable place to just kick back and relax. I also expected there to be more of a view of the water from the balcony, but there really isn’t. The balcony faces a parking lot and you have to basically go to one end of it and lean out to see a small part of the ocean.

We had an issue one day where the electricity was turned off. This was a result of the bill not being paid by the owner. The situation was remedied and we did re-gained electricity within only a couple of hours, however, it was an interruption to our stay that should never have happened. I feel that this was just poor business.

We ended up leaving the condo a day early and forfeiting a night’s stay that we had already paid for. This was mainly because we did not enjoy the area in general, not necessarily because of the condo. There was not much beach weather during our stay and there just wasn’t a lot to do in the area otherwise.
