About Martha Takacs

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!

This is the perfect cottage!! We vacationed with three generations and the space and amenities were the background to a wonderful week.

My parents stayed in the cottage and enjoyed the quiet and privacy. Going to the beach isn't that easy on them so having the pool right outside their door was ideal. My husband and I enjoyed the master bedroom and bath. We had plenty of room and storage.

Having two separate living areas worked out perfectly. We could relax in the front room while the kidults enjoyed the back room.

The kitchen was well provisioned and made eating in easy. We enjoyed gathering around the table with everyone.

The pool was great and we used it several times a day. It was very relaxing.

It really feels like a family friend has let you stay in their home. It's comfortable. Clean. Well stocked. Decorated perfectly. I can't say enough good things. By the end of the first day we already knew we wanted to come back to this house again next year.

It's also very convenient to everything and Martha is terrific to work with.

Mermaid Cottage is FANtastic!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time at Mermaid! It is roomy, comfortable, well-equipped, and the location is great! All of our family enjoyed it. Very close to the beach, and not far from the pier and the downtown shops and restaurants! The pool is wonderful, wee really enjoyed going in after the beach, after dinner and in the evenings the kids would take a dip before dinner.

Great House, would go back, will brag to everyone.

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for my Groomsmen and I for my wedding. The house was great!


1. The house was clean and well appointed.

What was cool:

1. The layout is kind of a maze and you like it. Plenty of open space with also plenty of sectioned off space so that different groups of people can do different things at once.

2. The detached guesthouse allowed my brother and his girlfriend stay in privacy.

What was Great:

1. The eclectic and fun nature of the decor and the house itself seemed remind me that "I am on an island, and I am on vacation." I had a wonderful time with some of my closest friends and relatives before I got married. Solid spot.

Charming cottage with easy walk to beach and town!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip to SSI! Mermaid Cottage was perfect for us. The cottage welcomed us whimsical charm. We found it well stocked with necessary items in the kitchen and for the pool and beach. It felt comfortable and had a variety of spaces from which to choose for socializing. Additionally, it is quiet and yet a short walk to town and/or the beach. We loved using the pool at the end of the beach day while we had cocktails and appetizers. Mermaid Cottage is wonderful for families!
