Tybee Island house description

Our 'A Mermaid's Tale' Vacation home is a wonderful cottage ideal for families, girls weekends even romantic couple honeymoons! A 5 minute walk to the main Tybee Island Beach, 2 blocks from door to beach. The main beach is wide, flat and ideal for walking, surfing and just enjoying the sand and surf.

Our home was featured on the 2008 Tybee Tour of Homes and was a big hit with all the visitors.

Pet Friendly- all pets welcome ( note- no fenced yard) Complimentary High Speed internet, both DSL and WiFi.
The home is ground level ( easy acess for all ages) with off street parking for 4 cars.

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!

The home has been completely remodeled and restored and full of bright and cheerful beach colors, art and comfy furniture. Updates include a brand new fully equipped kitchen and a family friendly open floor plan.

Each of the bedrooms feature flat screen TVs with DVD players and a 42' flat wall mounted TV in the spacious family gathering area which includes the living room, dining room, and kitchen.

There are ceramic and wood floors throughout.

Our outdoor areas are just as special! This includes a rocking chair filled side porch, a private back yard with two separate seating areas, and a perfect place for a relaxing outdoor massage.

We have two master bedrooms! The Garden Room and the Nautical Room are both large Master Suites with King Beds including their own full baths. Our other bedrooms include what our grand children love -the Bunk Room with it's bunk beds, trundle bed, seating area and flat screen TV with DVD.

This is the perfect family gathering home and if you have more then one large family, we have other Mermaid Cottages directly across the street including Under the Tybee Sun which also has 4 bedrooms AND a private pool! Pet Friendly as well!!!

Don't forget- if you're looking for a mountain getaway- that is Just as wonderful as our Tybee Beach house is our Mountain House on the highlands of the Roan at 4200 feet elevation (the views are breathtaking) in the mountains of north east Tennessee. We would love to have you visit there too. You can see pictures and details at our VRBO listing #29493.

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.
