Meet Your Host at Savannah Villas

your Savannah Villas host, Robbie Bell, and his mother, Helen RicheyRobbie Bell, your host at Savannah Villas, has been in real estate for over 15 years and has always admired the historic architecture of Savannah, Georgia. His first venture in the Landmark Historic District of Savannah was the purchase of the Broughton Street Guest House at 511 E. Broughton Street operating as a Bed and Breakfast in 2000. With the success of this property converted to a Savannah Vacation Rental, he was willing to take on the challenge of restoration of the home at 109 West Liberty Street for a two-year project. This effort successfully transformed the home into 109 West and to what is now the ultimate in Luxury Vacation Rentals in Historic Savannah, Georgia.

Robbie’s latest venture was a joint purchase with his mother, Helen Richey, of the three bedroom O’Connor House at 507 E. Broughton Street, Savannah, Georgia.

Tybee Seafood Festival

The Tybee Seafood Festival takes place on the Tybee Pier Saturday, May 7, 2011. It’s a good excuse for guests of our Savannah Vacation Villas to visit Tybee Island, which is about 20 minutes from Savannah’s historic downtown.

The Tybee Seafood Festival features lots of fresh seafood, prepared by some of the island’s finest chefs and caterers. Enjoy live music as you eat, surprise fun performances, and people watching.

In conjunction with the festival, Mega Midway Carnival will be open from May 4 – May 8, 2011, not far from the Tybee Pier. Daredevils will be drawn to rides like Spin Out, while others will simply enjoy the view from the Ferris Wheel.

Some guests of our Savannah Vacation Villas never make it to Tybee Island; there is, after all, plenty to do in historic Savannah. Yet Tybee Island is an interesting and lovely place, well worth a visit. The Tybee Seafood Festival is as good a reason as any to head to Tybee Island.
