Wonderful Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

Donna and Steve have supplied everything needed for a comfortable stay at Fishtales.

The sofa sleeper with air mattress was very comfortable.

The WIFI in the unit worked really well.

We enjoyed the views from the third floor balcony for watching ships. There was a lovely view over the Island

in the other direction. We also watched the work being done to improve the pool area and noticed the entire

property was well taken care of.

No time is long enough to spend at Fishtales on Tybee Island.

Relaxing on the beach or exploring the area or visiting Savannah, there is always something to to see or do.

Beautiful little condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was well equipped with everything we needed. It was very spacious and the balcony had nice views of the ocean. It was clean and comfortable. Great beach out back of the property to enjoy a stroll. Lots to do nearby. Owner was very quick to return all our emails. We enjoyed our weekend stay very much.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Fish Tales is a great place to stay while on Tybee Island. Donna and Steve were very helpful with all my questions and even emailed us a few days before our arrival to make sure we had all the information needed for our visit to Tybee. They have set it up to be very welcoming and have everything needed from binocular, plenty of towels, and lots of storage. We only had three days on Tybee but could have spent three weeks there.

We were lucky to have been in town for the Beach Bum Parade - what fun.

Only thing which would have helped was wifi, we were not able to connect from the balcony could only get access by the pool.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you found a great place for your vacation. We try to make sure to answer all your questions in a timely manner so you feel at ease with your decision to choose our condo on the north shore of Tybee Island. We love watching the dolphins frolic just off shore and the tankers, and shrimp boats that go by on a daily basis. Many of our guests love the peace and quiet of this side of the island. The management does an excellent job of maintaining the grounds for our guest's enjoyment as well. We are sorry you were not able to use the pubic internet access from the balcony as we, and most of our guests, have always been able to do so. Thanks again for choosing our condo and your review of Fishtales on Tybee. Hope to see you again soon!!

Perfect for our little family!

  • 5 of 5

Fishtales is our new favorite place on Tybee! The views from the room are just enough, you can see the beach and the pool. We enjoyed being on the third floor without having any overhead noise. Everyone at the complex was extremely friendly. The walk to the beach was just right and we could see the large ships going by. We slept great. Had everything we needed in the condo. Our 5 year old son stayed on the pullout air mattress bed (its a couch with a pullout bed, the bed part is an air mattress) and loved it. The beach chairs that were included was very nice touch. Everything was exceptionally clean! The hot water was FABULOUS. We never ran out of it, and took the longest, hottest showers possible. A tour of Fort Pulaski is a must do. We really enjoyed our stay!

Could not have been more comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 5 wonderful days at Fishtales on Tybee Island. The condo was exactly as described. It was clean, comfortable, and peaceful. The complex was perfectly located for a relaxing vacation. There were no crowds and the pool was never busy. The kitchen was perfectly stocked with anything that we needed. The bed was very comfy. The living area was wonderful for relaxing after our days being tourists. We took the beach chairs out to the beach and watched the beautiful sunset and the tide rolling out. It was also fun to watch the pelicans dive for their dinner! I also enjoyed walking the beach with my cup of coffee in the mornings! The owners were very helpful and prompt in responding to our requests. We would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone and would love to return one day soon!

Cozy getaway!

  • 4 of 5

For our 4th visit to the Savannah area, this was our first stay on Tybee Island. My husband and I were here to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. The condo is just as the photos show and was perfect for the two of us. It was nice and clean. The complex was quiet - I think we saw one other person the entire time we were here. We had planned to spend more time on the island, but the weather kept us from enjoying the view from the balcony, the pool and the beach chairs included in the condo. The condo includes a well-stocked kitchen complete with plates, cups, glasses, pots, pans and cooking utensils. We fixed breakfast here one morning, but since it was just the two of us, we ate out all other times. The first night we were here, we ate on the oceanfront deck at Marlin Monroe's. The food was good, but the quality of service left much to be desired (had to ask for a cracking tool for crab leg dinner and ask again for wet wipes, etc). We toured the Lighthouse one windy day. Very nice site to visit.

The rest of our week we spent in the Historic District visiting our favorite spots and exploring ones we had not yet seen and dodging the rain.

Thank you, Steve & Donna, for sharing your adorable condo with us. We would happily recommend it to family and friends wanting to stay on Tybee Island.
