About Jimmy Edwards

Welcome to Tybee Island! I am a proud native Savannah-ian! Savannah and Tybee Island have grown and changed a lot over the years, all for the better! When I was a kid, they called this Savannah Beach! When my mom was younger, they held dances on the pavilion, which has since burned and has now been replaced by the Tybee Pier and Pavilion. Savannah was established in 1733, so there is much history to be found in our beautiful downtown too! I am continuing the family tradition with my wife and two sons (8 and 17 months) by ensuring they enjoy the benefits of coastal living too. The photo of me and my son were taken on the Back River at Tybee.

Jimmy Edwards purchased this condo in 2004

Why Jimmy Edwards chose Tybee Island

We purchased this property as a second home and investment property in 2004. We began renting the Tybee Island Pelican Drive house last year (2013) with great success and have expanded that to both downstairs units this year. This house is used by our family, and we enjoy it quite a bit. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

The Pelican house is true Tybee living at its best. The house is backed by Chimney Creek, a tidal creek. The creek has six feet of water at high tide and goes completely dry at low tide, exhibiting the extreme tide changes that we experience at Tybee. You can fish and crab out of your back door or just enjoy the sun on the secluded floating dock. Out of the front door, you have the beautiful marsh and coastal winds 24 hours a day.

Morning Coffee with a Cove View; Evening Wine Watching Constellations

  • 5 of 5

I spent several nights in a cozy and very clean upstairs apartment overlooking a cove of the Lazaretto Creek/River. The porch/deck overlooking the water was my main "hangout"; different times of day gave a variety of different scenes, extremely relaxing. Kitchen was equipped with all the necessities, and even though night time traffic is regular on hwy 80, it is dark enough to see lots of starry sky at night. The location is only a few miles to Tybee Beach proper, and I had fun exploring restaurants and shops. Hosts were always available by text to answer questions. I will definitely go back asap!!

Affordable. Pet Friendly. Great owners!

  • 5 of 5

Jimmy and his family were incredibly accommodating...especially within less than a week of dealing with the damage and clean up from Hurricane Irma. Great communication. Great location. The owner quickly took care of a small electrical issue that was related to the storm. It's a really nice place to stay and within short driving distance to just about anything on Tybee Island. We enjoyed ourselves and would go back for sure.

Tranquil Island Get Away

  • 5 of 5

The Palm Cottage on Tybee Island was perfect. Being a lighthouse enthusiast, I was thrilled with the view from the top of Tybee Lighthouse & was able to get a close up view of the Cockspur Island Light on Captain Mike's Sunset Dolphin Tour. We picked up some history knowledge at Fort Pulaski & just enjoyed the tranquility of Tybee Island

You need to separate the bedroom for some privacy.

A nice place to stay if you don't have kids, or friends with you.
