2B/2B Townhome - River views-Deepwater dock / a seasonal screened swimming pool
About Karen Merritt
My husband and I both grew up in Georgia. I grew up in Savannah and he in Atlanta. We have been married for 33 years and were blessed to live in many places across this country as we traveled for work and raised our three children. We returned to our beloved coastal Georgia 4 years ago. We currently live in Savannah and desired a weekend getaway place of our own and found this piece of heaven on the Sapelo river.
Karen Merritt purchased this Townhouse in 2017
Why Karen Merritt chose Townsend
While searching Zillow for waterfront properties for sale in coastal Georgia , the townhome caught our eye . We decided to take a ride down I-95 one Saturday and check it out . Upon arriving and seeing the water views and meeting the people we were sold!!! We could see ourselves relaxing on the deck watching the sunrises and sunsets and enjoying the beautiful coastal scenery. It brought back all the memories of spending time in the area as a small child and we knew we could share with our kids and grandchildren the unique coastal experience. Living a short distance up the road gives us the ability to enjoy our new place and also share with others looking for relaxation and tranquility!!!
What makes this Townhouse unique
There is nothing like the marshes of coastal Georgia - where wildlife is abundant and the breezes are special. Time is measured by the tide. This townhome offers a boat launch ramp on site and a deepwater floating dock if you desire to vacation with your boat . The dock has a place to clean fish or crabs and the ability to launch your kayak in the coastal waters. The views from the living area and the deck are breathtaking. Stroll in the evening down to the dock and enjoy the breezes and watch for dolphins or take avantage of the views from the swing on the river bluff.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Merritt's condo. It was well stocked and furnished. The neighbors were very friendly. I spent a lot of time on the dock fishing and crabbing. I look forward to my stay there next year.
Will be back!
What an amazing vacation - rest & relaxation! I can't wait to go back! Thanks Karen for your advice for great seafood places!! The unit is beautiful, clean & comfortable & we will definitely rent again - soon I hope!
As advertised.... clean, quiet, and relaxing
Beautiful location and very quiet. The small community helps to make you feel like you are miles from the hustle and bustle of the city. Entire unit was clean and issue free during our stay. Owner was very responsive with all the questions we had too.
We stayed during the second week of March when temperatures were very comfortable and sunshine plentiful. It was absolutely wonderful waking every day to the absolute quiet broken only by the sound of birds and a gentle breeze,.The condo was immaculate and had all the amenities, including washer and dryer. The location was convenient to Brunswick, Savannah, and all the Islands. I-95 is close, but US 17 is a much nicer drive. This accomodation provided us with one of the most restful and relaxing trips we have ever taken. Long before the week ended, we had already decided to return.
Beautiful and peaceful.
Excellent condo and beautiful property. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to get away for a week or a month or two.
Quiet and relaxing
After a long flight and drive from the airport what a delight when we arrived. We parked right in front of the house, and once inside the lovely view through the rear sliding doors across the river was delightful, as the sun set. In the morning, we had breakfast on the rear deck as the sun warmed through enjoying the view from the high seats, of the wetlands. We did this most mornings, reading and soaking up the natural surroundings. There is lots of space with almost all the equipment you will need throughout the townhouse. The kitchen is well equipped (needs a kettle for those that drink tea though) although we ate out almost every day. Both bedrooms are roomy with comfortable beds. There is air con but as it was the end of October beginning of November we didn’t need it.
It is a good central base to visit Savannah, the golden isles, Brunswick and all the local parks. The area was very quiet and relaxing. The neighbours were very friendly without being in any way intrusive. We especially loved Jekyll Island which is only 30 mins drive away.
