Our Favorite Tybee Island Porches

Brooks Cottage

It’s Spring, so we can’t help but feature some of our favorite Tybee Island porches.  With weather this gorgeous, even our pods of Mermaids love to perch in just the right places to see and be seen.  Some are perfect for alone time for reading and for napping, while others provide just the right ambience and ocean breezes for al fresco dining.  Whether you like ’em way up high or down low on top of a stoop, Mermaid Cottages has all kinds of porches.  Come on down.  Pick one out.  Get really comfortable and hold out your hands for sweet tea, water melons and decadent desserts.  It’s porch sittin’ time and we’ll show y’all just where and how to do it!

Brooks Cottage

Sprawl out, belly up like an old cat drawing on the morning sun, jackknife across the hand made quilts after a few too many mint juleps, or gather up all your sweet dreams to savor amongst these twins beds out on the second floor sleeping porch at Brooks Cottage.
