About Tom Colasanto

Cathy & I met after we both suffered tragic marital losses. We were both born and raised in New York, but actually met an fell in love in the Savannah, GA area.

We first lived in a rural suburban but realized that without any children living at home, that an urban area was more our liking. we moved to downtown Savannah in 2005 and have enjoyed every day here in our walking community.

Tom Colasanto purchased this condo in 2006

Why Tom Colasanto chose Coastal Georgia

Cathy always wanted a place by the water. We looked for years until we settled on our Magnificent Ocean View Condominium. However, since we are both very active people and discovered that we could not spend as much time at our Ocean View Condominium as we would have liked to, we elected to share our home and all its beauty with others, and began using it for short term rentals.

What makes this condo unique

Our home is in an excellent prime location within walking distance of almost everything Tybee. Our home is a show place and has a fantastic ocean view. We are located on the south end of the beach where most of the activities take place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tom & Cathy,

I would love to brag on your condo again at links below, except we bought a new computer and I have not bought Microsoft Office yet, so I have no word doc. to type anything in. Weather was perfect for us, after all, we left below zero temps in Illinois. We also love the peacefulness of January, so it was all good. Hoping to stay again next year for 2 weeks if you'll have us!! Thanks so much for the gift certificate also, we always eat at Spanky's at least once & this time I had something other than the stuffed quesadillas I love so much, because we ate there twice! Thank you again for everything!

Great condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were onTybee Island for a family wedding. This condo had us within a 5 to 10 minutes walk from everything we needed including family. We only moved our vehicle on the day we went to Savanah. It was great to have the kitchen and washer and dryer. So quick and easy to walk across the wooden bridge to the beach. We walked the beach at least 2x a day during our stay. Our favorite spot was the wooden swing on the balcony listening to the waves. The condo is on the 2nd floor (which give you a great view), so make sure you are able to walk up/down steps. We didn't have any problems. Tom was easy to work with and responded to questions quickly. Great place and I would recommend it to my family and friends.

Great location with a wonderful beach view

  • 5 of 5

This condo is great! The location is perfect, just steps from the wooden bridge to the beach. Cathy & Tom showed such hospitality with a warm welcome via bottles of water, a bottle of wine & a personalized welcome card. We enjoyed the kitchen & it was wonderful having the ability to wash our clothes with the onsite W&D. Highly recommend this as a place to stay when visiting Tybee.

Great location...

  • 5 of 5

What a great location. It was very easy to book our rental of Cathy & Tom's beach home. Tom was prompt in his replies to my emails and sent plenty of directions and descriptions on where to park and how to access the condo.

The condo itself was exactly as pictured and everything that we needed for our stay—towels, toilet paper, garbage bags, etc—was provided. They even had beach towels and a few beach toys in the bedroom closets. The balcony is nice and big and has a fantastic view of the water. My family of four fit out there comfortably and spent a lot of time out there just relaxing.

If you need restaurant recommendations....While staying in Tybee we went into Savannah twice and loved Molly MacPhearson's Pub so much we ate there both times. We also ate at Spanky's Beachside right around the corner one night and The Breakfast Club one morning. Both were great.

We would stay at Cathy and Tom's beach home again in the future.
