Mermaid Cottages debuted Skipjack Cottage circa 1929 this week and it’s ready for your next Tybee Island Getaway!
Skipjack Cottage will bring back childhood memories of visiting a favorite family beach house! It’s the perfect beach retreat for nostalgia lovers and for lovers of all things vintage. This vintage, circa 1929 raised, southern-style beach house offers everything you can think of for an unforgettable beach vacation!
The wood-paneled walls envelop you in a cozy feeling of relaxation and history as you imagine how good life was for those who called this place home so many years ago. Up the stairs on the front of the house, the outside features a wonderful, expansive front porch with comfortable furniture and a porch swing for enjoying those Tybee nightcaps or your Mermaid Morning Bliss coffee!
There’s also a large screened side porch with lots of comfortable outdoor furniture and a table and chairs for dining al fresco!
The kitchen has beautiful white glass front cabinets and all of the modern amenities needed, including your very own icemaker. Simple and elegant, you can prepare a Tybee seafood feast or a simple beach picnic. Brand-new stainless steel appliances and granite countertops give you all the modern conveniences in a beautiful, historic beach cottage!
The living area features beautiful, richly stained wood paneled walls and ceiling, a fireplace, lots of very comfortable furnishings and a flat screen TV. Throughout this home, beautiful antique furniture pieces mingle with new pieces in a perfect mix of today and yesterday.
This cottage features three full bedrooms on the upper level all with queen beds. There is one full bath with claw foot tub and shower and an additional half bath.
Heading down to the “street” level, there is a very large open area which stores beach chairs, umbrellas and everything else you need for a fun beach stay.
Additionally, and one of our most favorite features, is a lighted pathway leading to the outdoor shower. You have to see it to appreciate it! Covered on top and the sides with beautiful foliage, it’s a private, romantic canopy with the overhead lighting.
Additionally, at this street level there are two additional bedrooms and another bath. One of these bedrooms features a double bed and the other bedroom features a daybed with a trundle (two twin beds).
You will absolutely love everything about this home. Nestled down 13th Lane, you’ll be just five houses from the beach (an easy walk to the private beach access). You can even get a glimpse of the beach as you stand in front of this beautiful cottage.
