About David smith

My love of the ocean and fishing brought me to Tybee Island. I fell in love with the relaxed easy lifestyle of Tybee. I was married on the south beach at sunset and decided to make my dream of owning a beach home a reality. Tybee is truly a magical place with so much to offer.

David smith purchased this townhome in 2012

Why David smith chose Coastal Georgia

This home offers the best of both worlds, beach living and privacy. Although it is situated just three blocks from the beach it is located on a quiet dead end street. Enjoy the beach life during the day then retreat to this quiet sanctuary for a relaxing evening under the stars.

What makes this townhome unique

This house offers more that just a place to sleep, its the perfect family get away. Being centrally located on the island your only minutes away from the north beach where you can visit Fort Screven and the historic Tybee lighthouse. Head south and enjoy shopping on Tybrisa or strolling on the pier. After a day of exploring the Island or playing on the beach you can relax on the screen porch, or enjoy lounging in the cabana bed by the hot tub. This home has an outside kitchen area that compliments the hot tube area with two decks and plenty of outside seating. Don't want to be outside? You and the kids can enjoy a full game room with pool table, dart board and putting game. This home is very kid friendly with a separate gaming room downstairs, wii video game systems upstairs and wifi throughout the house. You can enjoy satellite television or watch movies on the dvd players. This is truly your one stop vacation oasis!

Live like a local

  • 4 of 5

Donna and David's home on Tybee was a great find for a reunion of extended families to spend a week on the Georgia coast. The house is just a few blocks from the beach and all of the local restaurants. Compared to the other homes we researched in the area, this location is an excellent value. The bedrooms are spacious and the common areas are very comfortable. There is a grill and smoker on the lower deck, so you can cook while watching the kids splash around in the oversized jacuzzi (which our nephews/nieces used as a pool). Above that is a screened outdoor deck with comfortable table and ample seating to enjoy meals outside, or, if the weather becomes too warm, a quick step inside to the dining area and kitchen. On the bottom level you'll find a game room complete with full sized pool table and a small entertainment room. We didn't use the downstairs entertainment room because the living room off of the kitchen area provided us with all of the seating and movies/video games our group of 7 needed. David and Donna even included a golf cart. There were 2 carts available to us on the property, however the guest prior to us damaged the 6 seat golf cart and although David worked hard to get it repaired before our departure, we weren't able to use it. The 4 seater (with parking pass) worked great to carry the kids and beach gear the few blocks to the water. The home even includes beach chairs, coolers, fishing gear, just about everything you'll need for a great time with family - no need to cart all of that stuff from wherever you're coming in from.

There are a couple of quirky features with electrical switches that David walked us through, but overall, this home is a terrific value for a large family looking for a relaxing getaway. I rented a couple of beach bikes for the week at a shop just down the road, so my son and I truly felt like locals when the rest of the group had the golf cart. There are dozens and dozens of blocks dedicated to cyclists and we encountered families at all hours enjoying the flat back streets on their bikes with minimal automobile traffic.

Our family had a great time. Thanks to Donna and David for making their home available to us.

Nice condo in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Loved the golf carts. Condo was nice. Backyard and spa was a mess due to recent storm before our arrival. Owner sent someone out to clean the spa. We would have liked to enjoy it more.

Owner's Response: I did everything in my power to get the spa ready...I contacted them many times with no response back. It rained a lot and storms rolled in. I can't control the storms but I did my best to accommodate. Thank you

Awesome Stay!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Every year the men in our church do a Men's Retreat. This year was by-far the best one we've ever had and it was all due to our stay in this home. It met all of our needs and more. There are two golf carts to make getting around the Island more convenient than jumping g in your vehicle. The pool table stayed busy, while Madden kept others busy in the game room. Their is a spa for those who just like to relax. The home comes furnished with all day to day living needs. Some of the guys enjoyed the beach, however most enjoyed the home so much that the beach was not an option (myself included). We had two guys who love to cook, so the grill and the smoker was right on time. Direct T.V. met the needs of those who enjoy just kicking back and watching a movie. Mrs. Donna responds quickly to your emails to answer any questions or concerns that you may have. The good thing is, we didnt have any concerns to address with her. The home was very clean and well kept. We only contacted her for instructions and to answer questuins about where to locate the key to the golf cart. She respI nded immediately. I recommend this home to anyone except for the first weekend in May, because we have decided to make this home our annual retreat home if Mrs. Donna will have us.

Great Island Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Donna was a very sweet lady to deal with. The house is very nice and she has loaded it with extras. The beds were all comfy and all guests slept well. There was construction next door but we were up by the time they started making any noise. Plus it was a small construction crew so they didn't get too loud. The backyard was a really nice oasis with a very cool hot tub. It was a big hit with the family! Having a pool table and game room was definitely an added bonus for our group during rainy days. We loved the various beaches located around Tybee and fully enjoyed exploring the island with the two included golf carts. The parking passes on the golf carts are a God-send! We really enjoyed our visit! Thanks Donna for sharing your house!

Everything you need and want to have a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

This vacation house felt like home from the moment we walked through the door. It literally has everything you could need or want to have a relaxing and fun experience. Our days consisted of making coffee in the keurig, hopping on the golf cart to head to the beach (which the adults and kids loved!), sitting on the swings at the beach, taking walks, picking up seashells, watching the dolphins that were fairly close (could've swam with them if the water wasn't so cold since it was December), riding back to get in the huge custom built hot tub, grilling out steaks and burgers on the electric grill, playing multiple rounds of pool, reclining on the sofas reading books, and falling asleep on the plush king size beds. New Year's Eve was a blast sitting on the beach watching the fireworks over the ocean. It was the best family vacation we have been on and can't wait to go back. The property owner, Donna, was so friendly and helpful, and was easy to work with. The only suggestions I can think of would be to provide a few more instructions such as the rules of driving the golf cart for those of us who don't have experience (fortunately everyone on the island is so nice and a friendly neighbor told us that both the headlights and the blinking light have to be on and that we couldn't go down the main road) and some instructions for checkout (we didn't know what time checkout was and what we were expected to do). Overall these two things were so minor, but would make it a little more clear 😃򐰮 Overall I can't speak enough praises of this place and look forward to more vacations at this wonderful property.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I Sideview the advice on things to improve on. It never crossed my mind. Sorry. On my listing it says 2 is check in and 12 is checkout but it might not show up on VRBO. I am very new to this. So I probably didn't put it into the right space. Thank you for pointing this out. :) Again I thank you for leaving my home so clean and for the wonderful plant.

Would stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place for my family of eight to stay. There was ample room for everyone. The condo looked just like the pictures. There were two golf carts (one 4-seater and one 6-seater) which made getting to the beach quite easy. It is about three blocks from the beach so if you had to walk you could. The condo was tucked away on a dead end street which made it nice and quiet. Donna responded right away to any and all questions. I would definitely recommend this condo and would come back again and stay here!
