“A Very, Very Nice Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We booked a condo at this property through Tybee Time Vacation Rentals. The property is wonderful -- even if the 10 p.m. "silent time" isn't always observed by all the property's guests. We had no problem parking in our reserved spaces, and the condo we rented was reasonably priced, very clean, well-appointed and otherwise excellent. The two-bedroom, two-bath condo featured gated parking, pools, an on-site restaurant and -- best of all -- access to the beach steps away from all condos on the property.

Only two problems: one of the bedrooms on the front of the condo overlooked the main drag in town, and the sound of traffic was pretty loud and the security light shining through the blinds made it a little hard to sleep. Also, the sliding door to the bathroom from the front bedroom had no handle on it. Trivial, really. Unless you’ve had, like, six or so beers before bed. Then it’s sort of important.

This property is a short stroll up the beach to the lighthouse, and is near several stores selling souvenirs and beach supplies.

Anyway, we were all very happy with Tybee Time and Beachside Colony and will use them again if we’re ever back down Tybee Island way again.

Love going to Tybee and staying at Beachside Colony we always stay in a unit in Beach House and just love the cleanliness and the great ocean views. I especially enjoy having coffee in the morning while watching the ocean. The staff is always helpful and friendly. Tybee is unlike any other beach town, very laid back. The pool being heated is a nice extra and our kids really loved to swim in February.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean front

We stayed over my daughter's spring break, just the two of us. First week of march, so LOTS of renovations going on. Loud hammering and stuff going on all day AND night long. My window was next to the street, even though we were "ocean side." The hammering all night didn't help. Our washing machine was broken. We reported it, but it never got fixed, so we came home with a week's worth of dirty laundry even though we paid for the room. Lousy location, as there's nothing to do unless you go into Savannah. We thought it would be quiet there, but it wasn't. You could hear everything and the lady that checked us in was rude. They said the condo-restaurant would be open, but it wasn't when we were there.

Room Tip: don't stay here.

Just returned from another week-end on Tybee Island at Beachside Colony. Another great experience. Front desk service was exceptional. These are all condos; not just rooms. There were three of us who shared a 2bed/2bath condo with a view of the ocean & pool (which was heated to a balmy 85 degrees). What a great time! All of the comforts of home with a great on-site restaurant and bar and the Atlantic right at our door !
On Sunday the restaurant had an oyster roast and it was a the most fun we've had in years! Live music, great food, all right on the ocean.
This was my third stay and I can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: most of the accommodations are ocean front or have an ocean view

WOW! A great place to stay. I can't wait until I return to Tybee Island. This is where I'll stay. The room was fabulous, as was the pool area and on-site restaurant Marlin Monroe's Grill. The beach is right outside your door. Ocean Song is up the beach from the pier, so it is a nice distance from the crowd. You will love it if you have children. There are other condos on the property and I recommend any of them for the best stay of your life. You could probably buy the condo that you stay in and there is even a Real Estate Agent on the property. Ask for Trey - he'll fix you up.

Everything was wonderful. Check in was easy. The condo was attractively decorated and spacious. Everything was nice and neat. There is a playground right across the street that my son loved. The pools were fun and my girls loved the water slides. We will visit Beachside Colony Again!

An adventure...without reservations...brought us to this property August 20-21. A "special" plus walk-in discount made the rate very affordable for a 2 bdrm 2 bthrm condo. Kitchen was new with granite and nice cabinets. Funiture a little worn but just fine for "beach". This is an older building so you get LOTS of room for the money. Great for families with 3 pools to choose from, onsite restaurant and room to spread out in the condo. Also, wider doors and step-in shower makes it accessible for some who need it. A must ---dinner at The Crab Shack and a visit to the lighthouse. One word to describe Tybee - unpretentious. Some Advice - throw your expectations of Hilton-Head-like away and have a great time!!! Hoping to drop in again very soon!
