Like many other Americans, we are hoping for the absolute best outcome for our beach vacation rental friends in the Gulf States. The threat to their rebounding Gulf hospitality industry livelihood from the ever widening oil spill is sobering. Not to mention that those that make a living in the gulf coast fisheries providing seafood to approximately half of the country is foremost on everybody’s mind in this new economy. A recent article in the Savannah Morning News tells of tourists coming out to Tybee Island in coastal Georgia rather than wait to see what is going to happen in the Gulf.
Our phone has started ringing with folks that are looking to come to Savannah’s Historic District PLUS take in the beaches of Tybee Island for the first time. As recently as a few days ago we had guests that had reservations at Destin, Gulf Shores, and Gulfport checking out availability and townhouse rates in Savannah in the event they have to cancel their reservations in the Gulf. For those guests, the good news is that we do have some 2 and 3 night rates available at low season rates in the summer months, all situated within the landmark historic district just 20 minutes away from Tybee Island and their high summer season vacation rentals. We are personally hoping that things work out for the best and folks get to visit both Coastal Georgia AND the Gulf Coast, this summer season.
