Tybee Island Vacation - Mermaid Cottages A Mermaids Tale Cottage – I have a personal love for all things mermaid-related.  This delightfully named cottage is on “Mermaid Cottages Corner”.  Mermaid Tale Cottage was built in 1950, sleeps 9 and has dining for 9.  It has 2 master suites with king beds and master baths, TV’s in the bedrooms and living room, is pet friendly, backyard and side yard for children to play in, and a fully equipped kitchen.

A Mermaids Tale Cottage was “featured on the 2008 Tybee Tour of Homes.”

Key LimeKey Lime Parrot c1936.  One of their most popular Tybee Island Vacation cottages is Key Lime Parrot that is painted such a cheery color.  It has an outside shower with Jasmine surrounding it that surely gives an amazing experience.

Tybee Island Vacation - Mermaid Cottages Old Love Cottage c1921 is another classic with ocean views from “Tybee’s original cottage row.  Tin roof, bead board walls, pocket windows, and picket-fenced yard.  Less than 100 steps (99 1/2 to be precise!) from the beach.”

I’ve gotten carried away and featured so many of Tybee Island Vacation cottages.  I might do a series including a cottage of the week.  Paula Deen’s Savannah Beach House Y’all Come Inn is on my to-do list too.

  1. That is so great that you were in the area Debra. As I sit here my hands and feet are both so cold on this -0+ degree day and this post has given me some internal sunshine too.

  2. I have visited the Tybee Island Lighthouse but did not spend enough time in the area to explore the residential neighborhoods. I certainly missed out — these are wonderful cottages. The colorful beach decor brought some needed warmth to a cold Michigan afternoon. Thanks, Sue!
