  • Great Time at Tybee Island!

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The cottage was a perfect location for walking to the beach, or making day trips to Savannah. There was plenty of room in each cottage so we weren't in each other's hair during the rainy days or after the sun went down. The kitchens were perfect for making shared group meals, and we really weren't missing any vital utensils. Everything was clean when we arrived, and comfortable enough that we didn't want to leave. Thanks Mermaid Cottages!"

  • Beautiful condo - great location

    "We loved the condo. Its exactly as the pictures. It was absolutely beautiful. We had everything we needed. The condo is close to all restaurants. We spent a lot of time in Syvannah and neighboring towns and we never ran into traffic going back and forth from the island. We went to the beach which is just a very short walk. Most of the beach chairs at the condo were falling apart so we just layed on towels. On our last day we unfortunately witness a vicious attack of a defenseless dog in the back of the condo and reported it to the condo owner. She assured me that she would look into it. Other than that it was a perfect week. The condo owner was very friendly and accommodating."

  • Highly recommend it

    "That is an awesome vacation house! Highly(!), totally(!!) recommend it!!! First, the owners are extremely friendly and attentive. They did a great job creating a welcoming and cozy atmosphere in the penthouse. Second, everything was even better than described. The house is a few years old and absolutely charming. The beds are comfortable, which is extra important when renting for more than a night or two. We had two fantastic kitchens. We were able to cook all meals while visiting with my family, because of the open floor layout. The estimated 2 minute walk to the beach is accurate. The neighborhood is quiet and after returning in the evening, it was relaxing to sit on the balcony. We were within walking distance of many restaurants, shops, arts and all the sites. Price is very reasonable as well. Thank you"
