Why Mermaid Cottages chose Coastal

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.

What makes this cottage unique

I love the old hardwood floors, the sense of history in the house and its peaceful location.

Guestbook comments from the manager

From the first contact by phone to the last by email, Mermaid Cottages provided the best service of the 4 rental agencies I used this month on Tybee. Personable service, efficient, best price quality.

Reviewer Comments:

It was a nice little cottage perfect for 4 people. My parents joined us for the week, they are in their 70's. We had beautiful weather and thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the screen porch and watched the dog walkers, joggers etc. It is actually a busy street. Lots of choices for good food. The lighthouse & North Beach grill is within walking distance. The shower is amazing-the water pressure and temp-perfect. Also worth noting, the storm that hit this area at the end of 2016 damaged the cottage we first reserved and they quickly acted and got us into a comparable cottage. They weren't sure if the repairs would be done in time. Also others talked of Palmetto bugs - we saw none.

The cottage couldn't have been any better for myself. A few nights my grandkids spent the night and the second bedroom was a perfect accommodation. I'd definitely lease it again.
