Tybee Island house description
Castaway is a classic 1950's mid-century cottage completely restored and renovated in 2008. Full of vintage furniture, art and tropical treats, the home is located just two blocks from the beach on quiet 2nd Avenue, Tybee Island’s best walking and biking street. Our home has been completely restored and decorated. While the cottage has been updated with all the modern conveniences, careful attention was given to preserving the original character of this 1950’s beach home.
Pet Friendly welcoming pets under 25 lbs, there is a fenced yard in the front making this an ideal home for all memebers of your family!
Mermaid Cottages is proud to sponsor a guide/service dog puppy each year (we have sponsored 7 dogs!) These service dogs give the invaluable gift of more productive, more independent lives to their owners. Our pet-friendly homes feature complimentary Beach Bum Dog Biscuits for your furry friend’s enjoyment! These wonderful treats are organic, peanut-butter based and made especially for us.
We support Sea Turtles in Georgia and around the world. The Tybee Sea Turtle Project has been working very hard to increase the number of loggerhead sea turtle nests. 2012 was a record-breaking year in large part because of our successful 'Lights Out For Sea Turtles' education we've helped sponsor. All our homes feature a starter supply of Mermaid Morning Bliss coffee which supports the sea turtle projects. This coffee is 100% organic Columbian craft-brewed coffee; again, created just for us!
Complimentary WiFi and DSL High Speed internet service allow you to be connected while still enjoying the beach and island. We also offer free long distance phone calls!
Renovations and updates to Castaway include a new kitchen, fully equipped for those who love to cook. And if you don't find what you need, a quick call to us and we'll bring it over!
Other pluses include a cozy, glassed-in sunroom filled with bright cheerful colors and original art.
Outside space offers lots of places to gather and relax. Two private patios, one fully enclosed, and the other a courtyard adjacent to a private outdoor shower with hot and cold water.
The cottage has three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. All bedrooms have queen beds, and the master bedroom has a private master bath.
Castaway is the perfect place for a quiet, tropical beach getaway located in the residential mid-island, cottage section of Tybee Island. Easy bike ride to shops, restaurants and 'downtown' Tybee with the fishing pier.
NO SURPRISES HERE! Our cottage is professionally cleaned and managed by one of the top management companies on Tybee Island with 24/7 customer service.
Discounts available: AAA, AARP, Educator(active or retired), Military (active or retired). We accept Mastercard and Visa.

Tybee TwoGuest comment entered by manager
This is our second stay on Tybee and staying in a Mermaid Cottage, we had such a good time, the charm of the houses that are perfectly equipped for a girls trip: several outdoor patios for lounging around, a kitchen fully stocked for cooking, outdoor shower, walking distance to the beach and local grocery store. We know we'll be back and we know we can find the perfect location and house through Mermaid Cottages.

Great Cottage for a Relaxing Week Away!
This beach rental was perfect! It was even cleaner and nicer than originally expected. There is a large sunroom taht I spent most of my time in. You can read in the window and close the doors to shut yourself off from the noise in the rest of the house. There is a great outdoor shower and they provide a Weber grill for cooking. This is a must-rent property. We will DEFINITELY be back!

Castaway: A Home Away From Home
We absolutely loved our stay at the Castaway Cottage. The home was well stocked and extremely clean. The only reason I gave four stars for the general property condition was because the patio furniture had not been cleaned and there were spider webs on it. The beach is only a short walk away and was never crowded, no matter when we went. I would highly recommend you stay with the mermaids on Tybee Island.

Wonderful Getaway!Guest comment entered by manager
My girlfriends and I rented this cabin for a girl's weekend. The space was fantastic!! I truly felt swept away and relaxed! The walk to the beach was easy. The furniture was very comfortable and we made ourselves right at home. I would definitely stay here again!

Under the Tybee Sun
"Castaway" was perfect for our family reunion. Very comfortable, colorful furnishings & the A/C felt great after hot hours on the beach.There are games, puzzles which we enjoyed.The patio was a pleasant retreat early and late in the day for reading and the site of our grilling activities, too. Neighborhood was nice, quiet and houses well cared for on that street.Mermaid Cottages always does a wonderful job of welcoming and preparing for your arrival and stay!

Wonderful, as usual!
I have stayed at Mermaid properties for years; I have to say that each time I am thoroughly impressed with the cleanliness and attention to every detail! Castaway was so nicely decorated, sparkling clean, and very comfortable. We had everything we needed and more! The location was perfect as well; we were two blocks from the beach in a quiet, friendly neighborhood with bike-friendly streets. I would gladly recommend this property to a friend.

Great Cottage and LocationGuest comment entered by manager
Great Cottage and Location
We have stayed at Castaway now for 4 years in the month of May and would not stay anywhere else. We ride bikes everywhere so we do not have to pay for parking and it is close enough to get everywhere (beach, downtown, restaurants, etc). The cottage is perfect for us (just two) but could accommodate more folks). We just don't want anything smaller, as we can spread out and be on the porch, or in our rooms, or in the living room. The place is in a quiet location and on a great tree-lined street. The amenities are perfect and if you ask for something additional that you might need, they accommodate you. ALL IS GOOD!

Year Purchased: 2007
About: Our family purchased this home to have a place we could gather and enjoy being together. We live in Atlanta and can't come to Tybee as much as we'd like which is why we love to share our home with visitors. We took great care to fill the home with vintage delights, local art and treats we've been collecting over the years. Our goal is you feel like your in your own beach cottage.
Why Tybee Island:
2nd Ave on Tybee is a great place to be. You are two short blocks to the beach, 2nd Ave is the main bike riding street on the island, there are charming cottages and homes all along the street. We love living here part time!
