“Just OK.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012 for a stay in July 2012
person found this review helpful

We stayed on Tybee at the Desoto Terraces, top floor, 2 bedroom unit in July. The unit is fairly spacious, the view is nice, but looks over he roof top of the house in front which is directly on the beach. The vreanda/lanai is spacious, however, the furniture cusions are filthy and need replacing or a good cleaning. The two teak rockers were great, though cushions would be nice.. The living room furniture also needs serious cleaning. Furnishings are "beachy", however, on our first night the king bed in the master literally fell apart. Upon investigation, it had been "rigged" together previously. It was fixed the next afternoon. The wood/laminate floors are nice, but the rugs are filthy and fraying-we tripped over them several times. Stack washer/dryer is nice. Kitchen is open, but very basic. Soap, paper towels, etc were provided.
If you are view conscious, do not bother with the first or second floor units. There is a very small, slow elevator. It is literally about 3X3 feet. Took several slow trips to retrieve our gear.
The beach is OK, definitely nothing great. It was nice watching ships pass on the way to Savannah. Tybee itself is old, run down, and dirty. Restaurants are not great-and we love "seafood dives". It looked as though these places were re-burbished fairly recnetly, but have taken a beating since. Will not return to Tybee or The Terraces.

“Location, location, location with a great view on Tybee Island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

A very short walk to the water. We had a beautiful view from every window. The front porch balcony is A great place to relax and enjoy the ocean as well. We spent our days in the ocean and had dinner out each night at the local restaurants. We were able to make our breakfast and lunch each day in the kitchen that had e everything we needed. Thank goodness for the washer & dryer, it was a lifesaver for all the towels and clothes we were using daily. The kids enjoyed our stay and it felt very safe and we were surrounded by families enjoying the same. We will be back...
