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.
COMPLIMENTARY AUTOGRAPHED MARY KAY ANDREWS NOVEL & WELCOME NOTE WITH EACH STAY!

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.
