Mermaids (and mermen) adore the details that make up our Tybee cottage swoons. Will It Go Round In Circles has us thinking about our love of décor, architecture and the little surprises peeking out from our little color boxes. Circles are frequently used as sun symbols and as representing things associated with the sun. Likewise, circles can also signify unity, wholeness and infinity. We just love how circles frame up the best features of our Tybee tiny houses. They’ve got us all wrapped up with hugs and here are some of our favorites.
Come now. Just how cute and fun can an outdoor shower be? Well, just reach up and grab the shower curtain attached to the semi-circular frame.

It comes with a screened porch, fenced-in yard, and partial marsh views from the back deck and the porch!
Can polka dots make you happy? You bet they can. Especially, when they dot the shutters and the outside shower of this cottage on the marsh. Just wait ’til your eyes light up and the corners of your mouth turn up. That’s what’ll happen when you watch the amazing sunrises and sunsets here.Our favorite circles? Yep, you guessed it. The smiling, round faces of our guests who celebrate their love of Mermaid Cottages, Tybee Island and for each other. We are family. Circle back around and create some cottage swoons you’ll never forget.
We love the coastal colors of our Mermaid Cottages and they each have special and unique Tybee tints. Looking for something in blue? Well, on Tybee Island there’s the sky. The ocean. The blue-gray of the dolphin who frolic and thrive. The turquoise Mermaid-Mobile that makes it’s rounds up and down the laid back streets of the island. Then, there are the blues of our cottages, their exterior trims, their shutters, their doors and their pops of blues throughout the interiors. Whatever shade gives you calm and peace and that beachy vibe. You’ll find them all here.
