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!
