Last trip, mom is 85!

Good morning to all the tybee island experts!

My mother loves Savannah and Tybee.. She has been a few times, but wants to make the trip one more time.. She is 85 years old and this is probably the last time she can make the long drive. She has never stayed in a Bed and Breakfast. I have looked at so many B and B's and can only find rooms with two beds in downtown Savannah, but only B and B on Tybee have one queen or one King..So, if we wanted to stay on the island instead of downtown Savannah, do you have any suggestions? Thank you in advance :)

Have you thought about renting a cottage on Tybee instead? There are many small cottages on the island that might suite your needs?

There are also houses and condos. I understand the thought behind a B&B, but a 2-3 bedroom condo on the beach might be a better option (and probably cheaper). I would base it on her decision, does she like Savannah because of the HD and all it has to offer, if so B&B in Savannah. Is it the beach/ocean that she loves, if so, condo on Tybee.

Idea: Assuming she still has most of her faculties, give her a couple of those disposable cameras that only require you to push the one button (they are like $5-6 at Walmart), and see what her eye finds important while she is there, and give yourself a lasting memory.
