Ernest Hemingway once wrote to a friend, ?I have to get to Key West and away from it all?. If you feel as he did, but don?t want to travel so far south, this condo is the place to be! The soaring 18-foot ceilings, woven paddle fans, and private lanai with a hot tub perfectly evoke the tropical beauty of the Keys. The master bedroom features a king-sized bed and ensuite bathroom with an enormous jetted tub and walk-in shower, and has its own entrance out onto the lanai. The second and third bedrooms have a queen and full-sized bed, respectively, and share the second full bathroom. Each bedroom is equipped with its own flat-screen TV. The fully stocked kitchen opens out into the airy living room with plenty of seating for any gathering. The sumptuous leather sofa even opens into a queen-sized bed for any extra guests! Beachside Colony is located on the beach, right in the middle of Tybee Island, a spot that puts it one mile from the pier, the hub of the island?s nightlife, and one mile from the Tybee Light Station, one of only 7 colonial-era lighthouses still in use in America. The resort boasts 3 pools, the largest of which is heated throughout the autumn and winter, and Marlin Monroe?s, an on-site restaurant and bar acclaimed for its oyster roasts and live entertainment.

Allison S. from Middlesboro, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2016 Unit 706 is a beautiful updated condo. The decor and furnishings are all nice and comfortable. I enjoyed having my morning coffee out on the private lanai. Only negative I can say about this one is there is no ocean view from this unit.
Ellen W. from Lexington, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2016 Very roomy and comfortable beds. a little difference in temperature in bedrooms vs. living area. dryer needs to be cleaned out, vent full of sand but does work. maintenance came quickly to address light bulbs out and air conditioner (air not really fixed, but addressed). able to make it cool enough by turning ac down. pools a bit small if you are looking for large swimming area. We prefer beach. Quiet. would have liked shades to block lights from outside.
Gloria Lea H. from Kermit, West Virginia recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2016 I enjoyed my stay here and would like to return. The unit I stayed in was great except it had no scenic view which I knew when I rented it. Others in my traveling group had rentals on the same property with views of the pool or beach and that is what I will choose next time. All three units we rented were very nice.
Hilary L. from Cincinnati, OH does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 After having satisfactory stays in the past this time was very disappointing. Pools were closed multiple times with little to no communication regarding the issues and timeframes for them to be re-opened. Apparently a recent change in the pool maintenance company was to blame for that, but the guests (and employees who have to deal with upset guests for reasons they cannot control) shouldn't have to worry about that kind of stuff. Also, multiple times during the week for no apparent reason our key cards would stop working and we would have to go to the office to get new cards. Again, a bit ridiculous.
John S. from Williamston, SC does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 we had some problems and reported them twice during our stay and nobody got in touch with us I finally gave up we were on vacation and I didn't need to spend time on it the toilet leaked/some problems with the tvs/stove burner/the patio definitely needed some work/most towel hangers were missing/ the plants were dead not like in the picture/the elevator was out a day and we had some issues getting up the stairs with bad knees other than that the room layout was nice it could have been better at least in working order or at least fixed in a timely matter
Somewhat disspointed with the condition of drapes, hanging off ro
Madeline H. from Lyons, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2016 Beds were very comfortable but we always prepare meals in condo, this one was not equites for that. No pot holders, dish towels, stock pots so we bought what we needed. The management were awesome amd re-embursted our purchase. But was annoying had to go searching the island for proper pots.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2016 Wonderful accommodating people at this resort. We rented a unit with a hot tub and had troubles with the hot tub right away. 4 days into our stay the hot tub was still not working and we were moved to another unit... where the hot tub only worked for a few hours. This facility is very nice but I think there needs to be more attention to unit inspections and owners responsibilities for meeting the resort requirements as advertised.
A guest from Dillon, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2016 This is second to none home away from away. This is the very best placed i have stayed in my travels every year for my Birthday i pick a destination and this time i struck GOAL i would return over and over again please pick this place to take your friends family etc. AWESOME JUST AWESOME
Donna F. from Chuckey, Tennessee recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2015 Our family had a great vacation on Tybee Island. The condo was very spacious and the private garden with the hot tub was an awesome addition to have morning coffee. The only thing that could be improved is cookware. I would recommend that the owners invest in a full set of "good quality" cookware. The furniture was nice and the beds very comfortable. I would stay here again.
Marlayna A. from Auburn, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2015 Two of my college friends and I stayed here at the Gardens 706 and it was perfect. We a had an absolute blast! The decor and comfortable living area was just what we had in mind. We each had out own room and there was plenty of space for us to spread out to get ready. We enjoyed the hot tub on the balcony. The location was perfect, just a bike ride away from everything we wanted to do. Can't wait to come back so we can play at the beach!
Ken B. from Milledgeville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2014 Had a great time again been back home for 2 days still on Tybee time! The place is great plenty of room an feels like home! Can't wait to get back! Thanks to Kellie an staff for everything !!!!
Katie A. from Emerson, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2014 Our experience was pretty great! It was my family's first vacation and it was a beautiful place to stay. The pictures do not do this place justice. It is massive! There were a couple minor things that were just a little disappointing however. The biggest was the fact that on the website it says there is a king size bed and the other two rooms both have queen beds. That is not true. The beds are full and if you have ever had a queen, downsizing to a full is a big difference. We actually thought they may be full beds and then we put a sheet on that we brought from home and it fit perfectly with alittle slack. There were also several lights out throughout the place, including the closets so it made it alittle difficult to see sometimes. The elevator closest to pur room was also not functioning properly so it was difficult to go up and down the stairs with a baby and luggage.Other than that the condo was beautiful and the staff was super friendly and we would definitely stay again!
Nathan B. from Swainsboro, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in August, 2014 Well to start off, we got there and checked in, then we headed straight to the beach. So from our perspective the weekend was starting off great. We Sat down there and had a few drinks and caught a little bit of a tan. The next thing we know we are gettin a call up to the front desk. We didn't know what to think? So,we got up there to find out we have been upgraded to a three bedroom with a hot tub. We obviously agreed to that and spent the rest of the weekend enjoying the beach and the hot tub.
George A. from Savannah, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 We enjoyed our stay at the Beachside Colony; however, we feel that some things in the condo were in need of repair. There were lights that didn't work, bathtub needed repairs, metal bar in shower was taped together, patio fixture was falling apart. (sink area) We were provided with good customer service, and we loved the location.
Gail M. from St Augustine, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2014 Neat and clean. Very accommodating . Good location. Two little guys loved the pool. Restaurant very convenient. Easy access to beach.
A guest from Harriman, TN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2014 Condo had a few problems: shower head and towel bar in second bath had been "duct-taped" which meant they both fell off when touched. The sliding door to hot tub area was torn up and was difficult to open/ lock. Drapes in living room would not close completely due to bent hardware. POSITIVES: beach was great and kept clean.
Robin F. from Copley, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2014 Overall, enjoyed our family vacation - it was a perfect time to visit the island as we did not have to deal with crowds anywhere; optimal weather; feedback relative to the condo is: kitchen sink faucet was broke and could not get hot water; curtains not able to draw open/closed correctly; bathroom door off the roller and not able to use properly; overall cleanliness of condo could have been better
Rodney L. from Iva, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2014 This was the 4th time we have stayed at this resort,3rd time in this unit room needs a a little more upkeep minor things pocket door wouldn't close between the 2 bedrooms some other minor things,All an all great place to stay,excellent location ,great restaurant on site some of the best food on tybee,wish they sreved breakfast and you wouldn't even have to leave the resort.always a great time on Tybee
A guest from Douglasville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2014 We really enjoyed our stay at the Gardens. This unit was very clean very accommodating in every way! We could not have asked for better place. Will come back soon!!
Laura N. from Lula, Georgia recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2014 The condo was beautiful and we loved the garden room the most (along with the quick walk to the beach right outside). Only issues were the appliances were really worn out and made the stay a bit of a headache. The TV was fuzzy and you couldn't see a single channel which was a pain with a toddler around, the shower(s) adjustable nozzles were both broken, the sink was broken and you had to wiggle the knob just right to turn it off. The stay would have been absolutely perfect if it wasn't for those minor inconveniences which can easily be fixed. If they are I highly recommend staying here, the garden room alone with the hot tub is beautiful
A guest from Nokesville, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2013 Good: great size for the cost, great location, easy check-in procedures, clean floors, nice furniture, clean linens, nice tub/hot tub, staff responsive to requests/questions.Needs Attention: About 1/3 lights did not work, including shower lights. Not many dishes (no bowls) or cooking amenities; some of those that were there weren't clean (food stuck on them, had to clean pans and some dishes before using). Ceiling fans extremely dusty.
Ron C. from Jefferson, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 Nice Condo, the only area that could use some attention is the patio area. The complex in general is a little run down and could use some TLC.
A guest from Chattanooga, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2013 We had 6 adults (3 couples) and a baby stay in the Gardens #706. The condo was very nicely decorated, very spacious, and had all the kitchen essentials to make some meals in the condo. The condo comes equipped with a stroller, a highchair, and a pack-n-play. All 3 of these items were in nice condition and it made it great not to have to pack and bring these items along. The private patio makes a great place to hang out. We really like that the condo was on the beach and we never had to drive anywhere! This part of Tybee Island has great beaches and is much less crowded than the beach area by the pier. Overall a great place to stay!
Robin D. from Washington C.H., OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 We were very pleased with our condo, except the kitchen could be equipped a little better. It was clean with comfortable beds and furniture. We had some issues with the TV, curtains and water faucet, but a nice man on staff took care of them. The office staff that we dealt with were somewhat rude. The elevator on our floor was dirty and trash cans on our floor were never emptied. The trash can at the pet area was never emptied. I would stay at the facility again, but the grounds people need to do a better job keeping things clean.
Tammy and June E. from Hephzibah, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2013 We hosted a family vacation at Tybee Island this year. Most guests stayed at Beachside Colony. The location was great, the rooms were nice, and the staff was so accommodating. We have been asked to host the next reunion because everyone enjoyed themselves so much. Thanks Beachside Colony.
Beeran B. from Austell, Georgia recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2013 We thought that we would have a real problem with the passing of tropical storm Andrea,but the weather cleared up nicely. We took our children and grand kids, we had an absolutely gorgeous weekend. The condo was large, clean and accommodating.The facilities, pool restaurant etc were great. The kids love the sea with the large expanse of beach which was just footsteps away.I think it was a great time of the year to be there.
Carrie H. from Burnsville, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2013 We were so pleased walking into The Gardens #706! It was perfect for my fiance and our family. This will definitely be our go-to place to stay next time we come to Tybee!
amanda s. from felton, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2013 My family and I (my husband, myself, and our 3 small children) needed to escape the cold of PA. We decided to take a last minute trip down south. We found this condo online. It was EXACTLY what we were looking for! The pictures do not do it justice. It's even more fantastic in person! GREAT location. Steps from the beach and easy parking. The rooms were beautiful and very comfortable! I fell in love with Tybee Island and this was the perfect place to stay. I can't wait to go back!
A guest from Newnan, GA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in February, 2013 Well appointed, clean, roomy unit conveniently located but has no visibility to the outside save sky lights. Only one egress (main door) as the three windows face a wall. Strange site, pun intended.
Matthew D. from Clyde, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2012 Our stay was excellent.The room was great inside and more than exceeded our was nice to be on the beach and have a hot tub in the room.We enjoyed the swimming pools.The pools were small but at this time of the year it was wife likes to go were there are pools with what is called a lazy river and big pools but she was very pleased as we all were with everything.We will definitely be back again in September as our children go to year around school and have two weeks out then.Great place Thanks.
