Tybee Island house description

'Basking Under the Tybee Sun' is a 5 minute walk to the family friendly 7th Street Beach. 1.5 blocks to the beach. Our location in the desirable and ever so quiet mid-island neighborhood makes sitting in a rocker on the screened-in front porch a delight. This is also the main bike riding street on Tybee and you'll see more bike riders then cars on 2nd Ave!

Pet Friendly- mulitple pets welcome. Fenced in yard in the back.

Complimentary High speed and WiFi internet service.

Private pool!!! Kids love the petite pool...and adults love the adjacent screened -in back porch for watching them. One of our favorite additions is a wonderful spacious sandroom/changingroom with outside entrance and with an adjacent outside shower with hot and cold running water.

Screened porches- not one but two! There is a screened porch on the front of the home for people watching and enjoying the rocking chairs AND a screened porch in the back of the home and view of the pool. Outdoor seating areas on the deck and patio on the back as well.

The fenced in backyard has a patio area with a gas grill.

Off Parking is provided for 5 cars and or a boat or even small RV.

Inside, our kitchen is fully equipped and the dining area is large and open. There are two bedrooms downstairs: the Master with a huge private bath and another bedroom and bath. Upstairs and private are a full bath and a bedroom with a king bed and another bedroom with full bed and sitting/child sleeping area.

Added plus- all bedrooms have flat screen TVs and DVD players. The living room features a wall mounted 42' flat screen TV with DVD, a CD player. There is also complimentary WiFi and DSL.

The biggest decision you'll face will be where to enjoy your morning coffee...front or back screened-in porch, sun porch, back patio, pool, family living area??

If you are bringing a very large family or several groups of people, directly across the Street is our other Cottage, 'A Mermaid's Tale' which is also completely renovated this year and was featured on the 2008 Tybee Tour of Homes. With 4 bedrooms (two of them Master Suites) and 3 baths, both can be combined for a great extended- family vacation. See VRBO # 208455 for full details.

Looking for a mountain visit? Besides Tybee, our other favorite place is our Mountain House located on the Highlands of the Roan (1.5 miles from the Appalachian Trail) in North East Tennessee. At 4200 feet elevation, the views are breathtaking! You can see details at VRBO # 29493. We'd love to have you visit.

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!

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.

Additional information about rental rates:
Longer minimum Night stay requirements will apply throughout the year to include Holidays, Spring Break and our Summer Season.

                    We had a wonderful week in Tybee. The house was appointed nicely and although we did not have a functioning DVD player, it was very quickly rectified. The decor is very charming.

                    This was our second time staying at Basking Under the Tybee Sun. We loved this house two years ago when we first came to Tybee. My kids only wanted to stay at "our" little house again. The house is very close to the beach and we loved that we could just walk there in a couple minutes. My son was stung fairly badly with a jellyfish the first day we were there...the Urgent Care staff were super nice. The pool in the back yard was great..we could not get the kids out of there! We had a bad storm one night and the pool drain was clogged the next day. The Mermaids got someone out and fixed the pool within hours. Thank you Mermaids for helping my family to make another vacation full of great memories...we really love Tybee and that house!

                    We rented this house in May (and 3 others)on a class trip for Juniors and Seniors. The house accomodated 4 teenage girls and 3 adult chaperons perfectly. The location is FABULOUS! Right down the street to beach access. Maybe 2 blocks? The house had everything you could think of. Including a really neat outdoor shower, and complimentary pet tags and treats. Loved the complimentary coffee. :) The staff at Mermaid Cottages is top notch.

                    Carol was amazing and helped me plan my trip every step of the way - my sisters and I had a fabulous long weekend with my mom to celebrate her 75th birthday and also the last of her chemo treatments. Carol and Diane made it all possible with advise, encouragement and also served as our own personal concierge service. These ladies know the area and the ins and outs and really bent over backwards to make this trip one of the best I have ever had! Love you ladies and I will be recommending you to everyone and I plan on coming back!

                    House was very nicely decorated. Loved the Christmas decorations. It made the cottage almost as nice as being home for Christmas. Beds were very comfortable. Kitchen was nicely appointed. Little extras left in the house were a pleasant surprise. Faux fireplace added great ambiance to our holiday visit and made nice photos.
