  • Friday the 13th Treat

    "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: This is the classic beach home of my dreams! Comfy, cozy, beautifully decorated, with a fabulous kitchen! I treated my staff of 10 women to a Friday the 13th long weekend getaway to the beach and this house was perfect! The "mermaids" at Mermaid Cottages were SO helpful and friendly! I want a repeat!!"

  • Wonderful stay

    "We just returned home from a week at Footprints, and we had a wonderful time! The condo is exactly as advertised-- plenty large for two people and well-appointed. We had everything we needed to cook in the kitchen, and the condo was very clean. Best of all was the AMAZING view from the balcony! We spent most of the week sitting at the table, either reading, eating meals, or just watching the boats and dolphins. Almost every night a shrimp boat would anchor just offshore, and its light in the darkness was pretty cool. Donna was very helpful when we had a question about getting on the internet, and when the coffee pot breathed its last gasp, she told us where there was a second pot in the condo closet. We will recommend this condo to friends staying on Tybee, and hope to return again ourselves!"

  • Secluded and wonderful!

    "We came to Tybee without knowing it was Spring Break! Fortunately, for us, we had booked a great place on the North end of the island away from the hustle and bustle that is Spring Break. We could go to the other side but when we wanted privacy we could go back to our own little oasis. If you are going to Tybee for relaxation, you HAVE to check into this place. There were practically a handful of souls on our beach. What a wonderful experience. We will come back time and time again."

  • First time on Tybee

    "Seabreeze on Tybee is a perfect place to stay. There were 3 children and 4 adults in our group and we all had plenty of space. The sofa's and bed's were comfy and the entire home was spotless! The bathrooms are beautiful, especially the master with the skylight, Jacuzzi tub, and two person shower. This home is in walking distance to the lighthouse and the beach. The owner Tom and the lady's at Ocean Front Cottage office were very helpful. There were fresh flowers in the kitchen when we arrived! That's what I love about the South... that southern hospitality can't be found anywhere else!"
