About Missy Woolf
Currently live in Augusta, Georgia and love our Tybee getaways. I also own Acorn Falls Cottage in Highlands NC, which is another amazing vacation rental if you need to get your mind and soul lost in the woods, while only 4 minutes to Main Street, Highlands.
Missy Woolf purchased this House in 2014
Why Missy Woolf chose Tybee Island
I fell in love with Tybee Island immediately, upon my initial visit. The escape to this amazing quirky town is the perfect place to be a beach bum. Tybee doesn't have any "airs",... only the fresh, saltwater air on this island! Plus, you can't beat biking and boozing on Tybee, which is my favorite pastime. Tybee Island offers a refreshing and relaxing vacation and now I’m proud to be a regularly visiting Tybean.
What makes this House unique
I fell in love with the historic aspect of the property. I am drawn to historic homes. I enjoy old doors, old knobs and creaks in the floors. I had an immediate connection with this cottage and felt it was my job to bring it back to life. I have really utilized pops of color throughout the cottage, because happy colors make happy cottages.

Great place to stay.
The front porch with the swings is awesome.
That’s my favorite spot too! I’m glad you enjoyed your stay. XX, Missy
Family vacation at the Salty Mermaid
We had a great time together at the house. Kids loved the pool. The house is adorable and was walking distance to the beach . House gets pretty hot in the afternoon But once we went and got a large box fan it helped a ton my only suggestion would be providing one more large fan for guest during the hottest months . Thanks so much for sharing your adorable place with us!!
I am so glad you had a great visit at The Salty Mermaid! Yes, due to the heat index over 100 degrees... our AC guy said everyone on the islands was buzzing him. Your so welcome for your stay and I loved hosting y’all!! XX, Missy
Look No Further!
Our family, for over 25 years, have been coming to Savannah and Tybee every summer to enjoy a group vacation. My grandmother lived off Thunderbolt, so beach days were always a part of tradition and we have kept it alive with summer stays on the island. This was the first year the group was over 20 so we had 3 separate homes to help fit everyone and our group of 6 plus 2 little ones (5yrs & 6yrs) lucked out with this charmer!!
From the onset Missy was open and clear with all communication and available during our stay at a moments notice. Check-in was seamless and when we checked out it felt as if we had known Missy for most of our lives. It was as if we were staying at a friends home.
The grand porch with swing beds were lovely for a lazy afternoon or a nighttime cocktail gabbing with everyone. The pool is delightful -with secluded trees reminiscent of Key West- and the hot tub "hit the spot" on many nights. There was table tennis for the kids (and some youthful adults) and plenty of beach toys to enjoy.
The kitchen is open and clean, with all the amenities. We knew about the Keurig so brought some k-cups beforehand.
The location is great! You are just blocks from the beach and a short golf cart ride to the local grocery store.
It was voted by our family as a MUST HAVE for next summer...now we just have to see who wins the coin toss for it! We will Look No Further.
THANK YOU MISSY (and Jason :))
Oh my goodness,... what an amazing and sweet review of my cottage & me ;). I’m beyond grateful when my guests thoroughly enjoy their stay & y’all were amazing!! Can’t wait to have y’all back!!!! You’re more than WELCOME! XX, Missy
Book for 2 weeks
The Salty Mermaid cottage is what dreams are made of. It’s so close to the beach but tucked away privately at the same time. The home had everything we needed and Missy was so great to work with. She responded ASAP to any questions I had. Check in process is extremely easy. The porch is where we spent most of our time. We will definitely book again. Be sure to get a golf cart, so peaceful riding through the island at sunset!
... what dreams are made of,... I love it! You put a smile on my face. I loved hosting you for a week and I can’t wait for your two week return visit!! ;) XX, Missy
