Our family stayed in the Mermaid Cottage in September, including my husband and myself, my brother and sister-in-law, three children, and my mother. We had a WONDERFUL time! The furniture, beds, linens and pillows were incredibly nice and comfortable. We loved the heated pool, and there were plenty of beach towels to spare. We also enjoyed the close proximity to the Pier Village and beach, which were fun to explore. Martha was a gracious host that made us feel like welcome personal guests. Most of all, it was a wonderful “home” for our family – now spread across the country – to share for a long weekend!

Great Family Vacation
Great Family Vacation
The Mermaid Cottage was a great get-a-way spot for kids, parents and grandparents. Martha was easy to work with and very helpful in planning our stay. The house is in a great location for exploring SSI. That said, we couldn't get our kids out of the awesome pool!

What a wonderful place for a family get-together! The house was beautiful and comfortable--every need anticipated--even sunscreen and a first-aid-kit! Short walk to the beach and beautiful little village--done several times. One of the most fun things was getting to use Martha's awesome china collection--beachy- patterned dinnerware made meals more fun! My 5-year old grand daughter LIVED in the pool! She even learned to swim there with the able help of her aunts and uncle. My son and son-in-law enjoyed late evening ping pong games. Martha's recommendations on eating places were right-on. We enjoyed them all! We would love to go back sometime! Martha is wonderful to work with on reservations and such!

This was our second visit to the precious Mermaid Cottage. We can't imagine staying anywhere else. We have a big family with members ranging in age from 5 to 88. It is suitable for everyone. Our favorite things about this cottage include the well equipped kitchen, 2 living room areas, adorable guest house, pool (of course), and the close proximity to the beach and town. The street isn't busy at all and allowed my kids to ride bikes and play ball without worrying about cars. We can't wait to return to the Mermaid Cottage. It is a little piece of heaven!

We stayed at the cottage 5 Years ago. It is still the same great place to get away from everyday grinds. The location is great for people of any age, not to far from the Village or the beach. Rooms are well decorated with just the right theeme for an island enviornment. Enjoyed every minute of our stay. Jim

The Mermaid Cottage is the perfect get away on St. Simon's. It is conveniently located near the "Village Area" and only three blocks from the beach. The fact that the house had a heated pool was wonderful as well! The pool is shaded by large oak trees. Therefore, those in our party who were more sun-sensitive were able to enjoy the water, without the beach and the sunburn. The house is perfectly sized, with a wonderful quaint atmosphere.

Always the perfect Getaway!
Always the perfect Getaway!
I have stayed at the Mermaid Cottage more than ten times now. I can honestly say it feels like a home away from home. Pictures just do not do it justice. We have done several other vacation rentals and nothing compares to this one. First of all, the location is fantastic...multiple parks, the ocean, and the village area are just a walk or a bike ride away. We love the neighborhood and the kids love to ride their bikes there while we love the limited traffic, beauty and quietness of it. The house itself is spacious, with a den to hang out in as adults when we put the kids to bed, without worrying about tiptoeing around. Along with the poolhouse, we find enough space and privacy despite usually staying with multiple families. Everything about this house is comfortable, from the luxurious linens, the fully equipped kitchen, to the wonderful warm pool. Although the island has wonderful places to eat, we usually take full advantage of the kitchen most nights and always have what we need. The beds are comfortable as well, and there is plenty of everything. Martha, the owner, is wonderful and has always been responsive with any small issues that arise. The house is always clean and well maintained, something I can say about each and every visit. You truly could not ask for a better place to stay.

The Perfect Retreat
The Perfect Retreat
I rented the Mermaid Cottage and invited several of my female friends to join me for a 60th birthday celebration at SSI. We could not have asked for a more idyllic setting to visit with one another away from our individual daily lives. This cottage is perfect in just about every way imaginable, and it is apparent that the owner, Martha, is invested in making certain her guests have an enjoyable and trouble free experience while staying there. I, like one of the other reviewers, have stayed at various rental properties through VRBO (and often at SSI), but I have never taken the time nor had the inclination to write a review before this one. Not only is this cottage completely stocked with anything you might need other than your clothing and toiletries, the quality and abundance of the furnishings and linens and supplies surpasses by far that of any rental property I have ever stayed at before. If you are interested in cooking rather than dining out, the kitchen truly has everything you need and more. In fact, it has more appliances and tableware than I have in my own home. One of the main things we all liked most about this cottage is the floor plan which allows guests to spend time alone or together as desired. The house is quaint and cozy, yet spacious and roomy, and it has plenty of seating arrangements both inside and out. The pool house is perfect for anyone who needs or wants a little more alone time and the heated pool is a special bonus. In addition to being extremely well maintained, the cottage owner is just a phone call away, and she is completely responsive to any needs or concerns of her guests. The best summary description I can post for this rental property is that it does not really feel like a rental property; rather, you feel as though you are staying at a friend's home on SSI - and a great one at that.

This is the quientessential SSI beach house! Can't say enough good things about Mermaid Cottage! Full of whimsy decor and more than adequately stocked w/ all of the supplies a family needs. Very charming, clean, well-equipped. Have no complaints at all. Have used VRBO almost a dozen times and this is the first time I have ever felt compelled to actually comment on an experience!

My husband and I just finished a week in the Mermaid cottage. the peace and quiet was welcoming, the cottage is beautiful a home away from home. Everything you could have wanted or needed was supplied by Martha (cottage owner) what an angel she is! St. Simons Island is the place to be for great food, shopping and relaxation, especially in the pool. The Mermaid cottage made the trip worthwhile and a special birthday treat for my husband. If we ever come back, it will be to the Mermaid cottage, Thank-you Martha for sharing your home with us. The listing was accurate regarding location; the pictures did not do the Mermaid cottage justice, much more beautiful; property was very clean and maintained; the owner was a phone call away and concerned about our happiness; I would recommend this property to friends and relatives; Martha has a book of restaurants in her cottage, they are all delicious! Definitely bring your bikes or rent a golf cart to get around and see the sites! What a treasure we found in the Mermaid Cottage and Martha!

About the owner: My husband and I LOVE the ocean. As our family grew,and grew, we found St. Simons to be the perfect place to take the kids. They couldn't get enough of the ocean and the biking trails. There was no question, we had to invest in our own 'St. Simons beach house.' We hope you'll enjoy all that Mermaid Cottage has to offer. You'll want to keep coming back too! Martha & Bob Takacs, Roswell, GA
