Our Girl Scout Troop had a awesome time. They loved the house! Very comfortable and plenty of room for all 9 of us. It was the perfect location to go into Savannah and stay on the beach. I will definitely recommend to all my family, friends and GS troops! Thanks Mermaid Cottages! We will be back!

Reviewer Comments:

This was our 4th time staying on Tybee Island in a Mermaid Cottage. Flips Flop House was amazing. The location was perfect, close enough to ride bikes to the beach, across from AJ's and near all the shops. We enjoyed breakfast on the screened in porch and hanging out in the large and bright living room. I was a little nervous about the kitchen because the pictures make it look very small, but it is actually quite large, nice and new and had all the amenities we needed. The decorations and furniture were perfect and so beachy. We had a little issue with the refrigerator leaking and the Mermaids took care of it right away. They are awesome! Flips Flop House is the perfect beach vacation. We will for sure be back next year.

House was well equiped, especially in kitchen. Nice side porch. Seemed a little run down, could use fresh paint. Also seemed a bit dark inside.

Reviewer Comments:

This home was way more than we could have asked for. The side porch that has entries indoors to three of the bedrooms was our all time favorite feature. We spent many mornings and evenings here talking. Everything was clean and this one-of-a-kind house gave us all the charm we were looking for. It accommodated 10 people easily and comfortably. We will definitely consider another visit to the Flip's Flop house next time we are on Tybee!!
