About Paul & Mary Gilker

We bought this condo because of its great location so close to the beach at the South End of Tybee. We live on Tybee full time and wanted an extra place just for rentals, and overflow when our family visits! We have many wonderful summer memories spent at the beach and want to provide a place for you to make your own memories. Tybee is a special place and we want to share it with you.

Paul & Mary Gilker purchased this condo in 2010

Why Paul & Mary Gilker chose Coastal Georgia

We like the South end of Tybee because it is close to the beach, Back River, and you can walk/bike where ever you want to go.

What makes this condo unique

We set the condo up as a place we would want to stay and are proud to have our family and friends vacation in it. We hope you enjoy staying there, too!

Excellent Home away from Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. Mary kept us updated on everything as we made our way to Tybee. She went over everything thoroughly and offered several dining recommendations that were outstanding!! The condo was immaculate and everything we needed was readily at hand. The beach was so close that even oceanfront would have not been any better. The decor was impeccable and we could not have ask for anything more. When we return to Tybee, you can guarantee that we will stay again!!!!!!!!!!

Perfect Tybee Condo

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our trip to Tybee. This was our third time to stay in Paul and Mary's Condo. As usual, everything was perfect. Everything needed was available to us, including extra beach chairs. Paul offers immediate assistance for any request. The condo is very clean, bright and nicely decorated. The beach, restaurants and shops are just steps away and made everything we did so convenient. We had a wonderful 4th of July vacation! We are already planning our trip to Tybee for next summer .

Another Great Stay at 101 Steps to the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th time staying at 101 Steps to the Beach and I would summarize each experience as "consistently excellent!" The condo was extremely clean and had all the amenities needed for the kitchen, bath, bedroom and the beach. Paul and Mary are always there to assist in unloading the car and to share with us what has changed at Tybee since our last visit. The beach, pier, beach shops, bars and restaurants are within easy walking distance, yet the condo is far enough from the downtown area that you don't have excessive noise or foot traffic. I only wish there was a ceiling fan on the porch to create more air movement during the warm summer mornings and evenings. We look forward to our 5th stay at 101 Steps to the Beach!

Above and beyond condo and owner.

  • 5 of 5

Our experience started with great communication with Paul and Mary. I had several questions prior to our stay and Paul was very quick to respond and provide me with the information I needed. The day we arrived, Paul was there to greet us and give us the tour of the condo. This was a welcome change from some previous rentals where you were on your own and left to figure it out. This condo is well equipped with everything you need to enjoy your vacation. I especially enjoyed walking only a few steps to enjoy the sunrise and a morning walk on the beach. You can tell that Paul and Mary care about their condo and the folks they rent it to. Looking forward to future visits.

Excellent place to stay if you are in Tybee!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean and well maintained condo!!! I loved the personal touches as well. From meeting the owner and him giving us a personal tour of the condo to giving us tips and recommendations of things to do and places to eat. If I get a chance to vacation in Tybee again, I will definitely consider renting this condo or his other condo in the same building. For anyone else considering to rent Paul and Mary's place, you will not be disappointed!

This is the perfect place to stay on Tybee--Just Book It!

  • 5 of 5

What makes this place so special? It's not just the cheery, clean condo with the ocean view off the balcony or the well-appointed kitchen or the fact that it's in the perfect's the amazingly personal service provided by Paul and Mary.

We are a family of four from Colorado and we felt like we experienced true 'Southern Hospitality'. Paul kept in touch with us throughout the day as we were traveling across Georgia to Tybee. When it became clear we were going to be very late he even went to the store and stocked us up with breakfast supplies (In addition to his standard wine, cheese, etc.). He met us when we arrived and helped us upstairs with all our luggage then proceeded to explain to our landlubber family everything we needed to know to enjoy our week in the paradise that is Tybee. It was like having an instant best friend. A really cool best friend that knows everything about the island and is willing to share what the natives know.

The condo itself was extremely comfortable and there was not a detail that was overlooked for the comfort of the guests. The layout of the condo is great--felt very roomy, bright and welcoming (even with 4 adults!). I'm not sure it would be possible to get much closer to the beach. Great dining, shopping and nightlife is right around the corner but because of the location of the condo we slept in peace and quiet. Honestly, there is not one thing I can think of that would have improved our week in Tybee.

We can't wait to go back. And of course we'll be staying in one of Paul and Mary's condos.
