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!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is nicely decorated and well equipped. Paul met us upon arrival and gave us a great introduction to ensure a pleasant stay.

The porch was so pleasant. We got around with bikes and there were many restaurants within walking distance.

To address the concern in a previous review--- recycling was at the bottom of the stairs!

The condo was lovely and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

It was our first stay at Tybee and staying at the condo made it great. It was like being at home yet having the ocean right outside. When we weren't at the beach we were talking on the porch. It was also close to a few good restaurants so we didn't have to drive every night for supper. We will definitely come back. The owners were lovely and helpful.

Great and convenient place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the apartment, its furnishings and amenities. Location could not be better and host was very welcoming. He was always available and gave an excellent rundown of sights to see, places to eat, etc. The concern of all 3 of us was that he said there was no recycling and even questioned the advantage of recycling. We later saw recycling containers at many residences. We encourage him to recycle and understand the importance of doing this for Tybee and the world's environment.

Photos tell the story: wonderful place to stay; Paul and Mary are caring, friendly hosts

  • 4 of 5

TIP: Look at the TVs in the photos of a lot of OTHER properties. They look like business envelopes. People take pics with special lenses to make their properties look bigger; it's not an honest representation of the property. Paul and Mary's photos are accurate and tell the true story. We use VRBO many times and this property and owner are faithful to their ratings. This is a very nice, very comfortable condo with plenty of room for a family of 4. And a real big screen TV, by the way. A/C is a must in the summer and it works perfectly. Well appointed kitchen. Everything we needed: bathrooms/showers, laundry worked fine. WiFi was okay. It truly is just a 1-2 minute, traffic-free walk to a beautiful beach. It's not a panoramic vista but you can most definitely see the ocean from the balcony. Covered parking. Would be so happy to stay here again. Another tip: bring an HDMI cable and you can stream a movie from your computer for evenings when you'd like to stay in.

My fault that Paul's e-mails were going to my junk folder and that understandably caused some problems but Paul, was fantastic and it didn't affect our visit one bit. He was great about showing us around the condo and giving us tips to the property and the island. A gracious host.

Minor issues: The "mattress" in the pull out couch is not for comfortable sleeping. It would have been nice to have had an umbrella, some beach mats or beach towels and a cooler, maybe even a body board to take to the beach. These items are relatively inexpensive and if we had purchased them we couldn't have taken them hope and would end up donating them. In August, the sun and heat can be brutal and this would have made our beach time more enjoyable.

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 .
