ENLISTED MEN'S MESS HALL ONLY: 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.

                      Why Tybee Island:
                      Tybee holds so many good memories for me. I grew up in Savannah and, in my teenage years, spent every spring and summer weekend at Tybee (then called Savannah Beach). One of my mother's best friends lived in Fort Screven and we visited with her family often. I loved the old homes (large and small), the big porches, the mossy trees and the relaxed beach life. I fell in love with Screened Inn before I ever saw it in person. I happened upon Layla and Kevin Palmer's blog and video of its renovation and called to arrange to see it.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      I love the old hardwood floors, the sense of history in the house and its peaceful location.
