Tybee Island house description

Welcome to The Breeze Inn, the fully restored circa-1940s vacation home of New York Times bestselling author Mary Kay Andrews. Named for the fictional motel in my Tybee-set novel SAVANNAH BREEZE, the Breeze is full of my favorite vintage beach finds collected from junking jaunts around the country. Bring your book club, girls group or family! Unlatch the gate and slip into the picket-fenced front garden filled with hot pink hibiscus, fragrant jasmine and white plumbago. We like to sit in those vintage motel chairs here and sip our coffee on lazy mornings.

Remember the slap of a screen door? It's here, and when you open the front door to The Breeze Inn you'll find barefeet-friendly recycled heart pine floors, slipcovered vintage rattan seating, a fully stocked library of beach reads, music and movies, and an enormous flat-screen TV with enough cozy seating for entire group.

Antique farmhouse table seats 8, and there's a vintage high chair for our youngest guests. Gourmet kitchen is stocked with every convenience, including high--end coffeemaker and grinder,coffee and tea service, glassware, silver and china--even a stockpot for your seafood boils and oyster knives for oyster roasts on the convenient charcoal grill right outside kitchen door. Screened porch offers dining space for eight, vintage wicker sofa and chairs and a creaky glider for afternoon naps.

When you're back from the two-block trip to the beach rinse off in the hot/cold outside shower, or in the full downstairs bath, then drop your flipflops and sandy suits in the downstairs laundry room and head upstairs to three charming bedrooms. Sunny master bedroom has pillow-top queen bed, flat-screen TV with DVD player, office area with printer/fax/copier and charming bath with vintage claw-foot tub and shower, even a separate outside stairway. Guest room one has pillow-top queen bed, bedroom two has nautical decor and twin beds. Upstairs guest bath has walk-in tile shower. All bedding is luxury 100 percent cotton, guaranteed for sweetest dreams ever.

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.

                            Six long time best friends from grammar school til now celebrating a very big birthday together. Five of us came from N.J. and one all the way from Arizona. The accommodations couldn't have been better.

                            We had a wonderful long weekend celebrating our family ties and memories. The cottage accommodated 6 adults very well. The Breeze Inn is centrally located on the island and fun to ride bikes to all the popular spots. Being a Mary Kay Andrews fan helps in appreciating the decor of the cottage. I am in love with Tybee Island!

                            We have rented Tybee homes through Mermaid Cottages several times and The Breeze Inn was another winner. It is well located on the bike path, well kept, and artfully decorated. We'll be back!

                            We stayed at Breeze Inn for our annual Girls Weekend. As soon as we pulled up to the house, we all fell in love! What a great beach cottage! It is in a convenient location with the beach and restaurants just minutes away. I would definitely recommend the Breeze Inn and Mermaid Cottages! The services provided by Mermaid Cottages was exceptional. They went above and beyond any of our expectations to meet all of our needs!

                            We had such a great time on our Tybee vacation. This house was the perfect place to stay. Love all of Mary Kay's special touches throughout the home. She's one of my favorite authors. Can't wait to read the autographed book she left for us to keep! All of the decorations in the home are adorable. We took so many pictures of all of the cute little knick-knacks. My fav part of the home was the back porch. Also loved the master bedroom - a gorgeous space to wake up in every morning. The location was perfect. Just a short walk to the beach - not even long enough to get sweaty. We had my 10 month old son with us and he rode in his red wagon down to the beach. And if you walk a little further, there are some great restaurants and shopping at the pier. The house was clean and the property management was very responsive. Great place to stay!

                            This house was absolutely gorgeous and had SO many cool details. The kitchen was beautiful. We also rented another cottage nearby which had a bigger open area for meals w/ a group of 16. But for all of our "just hanging out" time, people gravitated here. We especially enjoyed the novelty of the outdoor shower. Highly recommended place to stay!

                            There were 5 adults, 1 child and 4 dogs at the Breeze Inn, and we all loved it! Great kitchen (with herb garden!), spotless and comfy, close to the beach yet quiet - with room for the dogs to romp outside. So pretty - people kept stopping to take pictures. Excellent communication with the Mermaids - you can't go wrong staying here!

                            My family and I just got back from what has to be the best vacation we have ever had. The Breeze was the hands down best vacation spot we have ever stayed at. The house was amazing in amount of room, deco and the 40's theme. The cottage was within walking distance to the beach and close to shops and Savannah. This was a first trip for my 3 month old grand daughter and it is a memory that we will all cherish. I would highly recommend Breeze Inn and Mermaid cottage rentals! My family will make The Breeze our annual vacation home in Tybee! I am already homesick for The Breeze!

                          Why Tybee Island:
                          Our family are long-time visitors to Savannah and Tybee who wanted a fun spot for relaxing, fishing, entertaining and family get-togethers.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Relax and enjoy Tybee Island's funky, low-key beach atmosphere. Home is named for and inspired by a fictional motel in author's novel, SAVANNAH BREEZE. Guests receive their choice of one of my autographed novels. Two block walk to beach, house is located on quiet and scenic block on Tybee's Bike Trail. Beautifully landscaped organic gardens include blooming fruit trees with fenced front and back yards. Home is family and pet-friendly and convenient to all the best of Tybee Island. This circa-1943 beach home was completely remodeled and restored in 2009, retaining its mid-century charm with the addition of modern conveniences.
