About Lesli

Our family shares responsibility for the house. I live on the island nearby. We've called Tybee our home away from home since 2000. We love Tybee!

Lesli purchased this house in 2008

Why Lesli chose Coastal Georgia

My late husband designed and built the house in 2009. The house was a small, cinder block home that he transformed into a unique, modernist cottage with a pool.

What makes this house unique

We love to all get together, open up the garage doors on to the sun porch, turn up the music, and hang by the pool. With the walled in pool, you feel like you have your own secret hideaway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After having searched for days looking for the right house to stay in on Tybee Island, I found House 203. It had everything we needed for a nice and relaxing vacation. I love, love, the pool. After spending all day on the beach (2 blocks away), we could rinse off in the outdoor shower and then jump into the pool. I cannot say enough good things about this house and the owner Leslie and her daughter Carly were the nicest people to deal with. Leslie gave us a tour and a brief history of the house which was designed by her husband. I liked the eco friendly body wash and hand soaps provided as well as the lovely towels for the bath, pool and beach. The house is super clean, simple and very modern.

Our favorite restaurant for seafood was Mac Elwee's where we had some amazing snow crab legs. Our waitress was named "Mike" and was really good fun and had great energy considering she was the only waitress for the whole restaurant.

Tybee has the friendliest people I have ever met.

Coming from New York City, this was a huge plus.

I can't wait to rent House 203 next year again.

Thanks Leslie and Carly.

Mike Robinson

Great Little Tybee island rental

  • 4 of 5

My friend and I were looking for a girls weekend getaway. We found this home all the homeaway.com site. We were looking for something with a pool, with two bedrooms near the beach. This home had all of that and more. The back patio with the garage doors that open directly out to the pool was fantastic. Everyday after spending some time in the sun on the beach it was wonderful to come back to the home and take a dip in the pool. Everything was in good working order except for the pool heater which was fixed during our stay. The owners were very nice and did compensated us for the few days that we spent without heat for the pool. The only negative thing that I can mention about this home, is that there is not much privacy from the outside. There are no curtains or blinds in the main family room which gave us a little bit of a feeling being exposed at night. Over all, we were very pleased with this rental and its location. The owners are also very responsive and friendly, which is great. We hope everyone enjoys this rental on Tybee Island!!

A perfect holiday.

  • 5 of 5

I travelled with 2 teenagers to Tybee for a week in August. House 203 was perfect.

The location was quiet, safe, a 4 min walk to the beach - and close enough to restaurants to walk yet far away enough from the madness of the pier. The pool was a perfect place for hot afternoons and lazy evenings - with the back porch being our favourite place to sit and laze.

Easy travel in an out of Savannah if you are looking for more upscale shopping or cuisine. With Hilton Head only 1 HR 20 mins away - a nice drive for an afternoon too. Tybee is an easy island with casual eateries, fresh fish, cold beer, and demands nothing more than shorts, T shirts and flip flops - low country living. You can't get more relaxed than this.

This home is lovely - carrying a great story with it. Every detail of its modern design and decor is so thoughtfully planned out. The house was well equipped with anything you would need ( towels, linens, duvets, soap, beach gear, bikes, board games, books, and some kitchen staples) - a novelty for many summer rentals.

This is an absolutely lovely home. I recommend it to anyone looking for a little Frank Lloyd Wright get away who appreciates a design aesthetic. However, if you are seeking the white decor beach house with rocking chairs, plump white pottery barn furniture and sea shells, this is not the house for you ( not a bad thing ).

Thank you for sharing your home with us and we will definitely be back.

My husband and I loved staying at this house. The location was excellent (two blocks from the beach), and the house itself was beautiful. We especially loved having the pool--looked like many of the houses around us did not have one. Carly was wonderful to work with. I would strongly recommend this house to any couple or small family (no more than two kids) looking to vacation on Tybee.

Wonderful relaxing home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 year old daughter, and I greatly enjoyed our stay! The home was cozy and the perfect size with a spa like feel. The pool was wonderful and it was warm enough for us all to swim under the stars before bed! Very clean and a wonderful location. We rode our bikes everywhere! The neighbors across the street were very sweet as well as the home owners! We will be back!

Perfect for Us

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful oasis, modern and sleek! The renters are very informative and helpful with our needs. ( Not recommended to persons not used to high end cabinetry or gentle with their use.) Tasteful decor and furnishing, but lacks storage to hide our junk to keep up the uncluttered look. ( ... Totally our fault for bringing too much stuff.) We thoroughly enjoyed swimming and playing games, hardly used the T.V., conducive to reading and great social interaction. We wish it had more rooms to accommodate adult couples, but one can't have everything for a fair price.
