Eight Times Our Guests Turned Into Mermaids

Here are eight times our guests turned into Mermaids (and Mermen).  Splish, splash, poof and there they were.  No worries.  No stress.  No lines.  No wrinkles.  It’s as if time stood still in that perfect moment.  It’s called Tybee Time.  See for yourself.

“We loved our stay at The Shrimp! It was the perfect Honeymoon cottage for us. Tybee was such a relaxing place. We thoroughly enjoyed the beach, food, and people! We will definitely be returning! We loved the proximity to Savannah and the excellent Mermaid Cottages hospitality.

Mermaid sightings on Martha’s Vineyard

I thought my beloved tybee island was full of cottage charm and mermaids but Martha’s Vineyard may be our equal. This charming cottage we are renting in the area called East Chop called the Mermaid Boathouse is ideal for our much needed rest after a long rental season and passing of my mom. This cottage was also featured in Coastal Living magazine and the book Coast by Janelle McCulloch who also came to tybee and included several of our cottages in the same book.

Loving our time here! Let day 2 of our adventure begin!

About the artists, Bo and Morgen:

Mona's Christmas Mermaid

“In August of 2011, an introduction by the pianist at our church led to a personal and professional relationship which has encouraged us to explore our creative talents.
Bo uses wood, both harvested and found, to create beautiful pieces of furniture and home decor items.  He also enjoys capturing local scenery with watercolors.
Morgen enjoys painting with acrylics, photographing the beautiful region in which they live, and creating whimsical items with polymer clay.”

We love learning about these wonderful artists from Darien, GA and we look forward to meeting more of their mermaids!  Thanks to Mermaid Mona for sharing and y’all be sure to send your Mermaid Sightings to diane@mermaidcottages.com.  Mermaids add just the right touch to your holiday decorations!

Iron Mermaids

We’ve got another great Mermaid Sightings for y’all!  It’s called Iron Mermaids!  It looks almost like there’s a Mermaid Convention going on at The Beach House Market in Panama City Beach!

Mermaid Sightings: The Beach House Market

The Beach House Market is home to a lot of fabulous things! They’re filled to the brim with shabby chic home decor that includes lamps, shells, depression glass, nautical items, jewelry, rugs and Mermaids!

You’ll find this unique shopping experience just past Pier Park and Highway 79 in Panama City Beach, FL.  They’re located inside the shopping plaza next to Dollar General, on the right.  Y’all better hurry before I get down there and bring every one of these fish-tailed beauties back to Tybee Island!

Remember, Mermaids are everywhere and they come in all shapes, sizes and colors.  When you see them, email your photo to diane@mermaidcottages.com and you could be featured in an upcoming Mermaid Sightings blog!

We’ve got Mermaid Sightings in Tucson, Arizona!  Jackie, one of our West Coast Mermaids-At-Large, spotted this all the way out west!

Mermaid Sightings in Tucson!

McNesby’s East Coast Super Subs in Tucson, AZ!

“This photo was taken in Tucson at a bar/restaurant called McNesby’s. It’s a Philadelphia place – the guy is a transplant and wanted to have a Philadelphia dive bar that makes great Philly cheese steaks (they are GREAT!) and feels like Jersey Shore (it does)….. And of course, when I saw this sign on the bathroom, I had to send it to you since you post photos of mermaids on your blog….. this one would be FABULOUS… lol…”

– Jackie C., Los Angeles CA

Thanks, Jackie!  We’re sending coastal waves to our new friends at McNesby’s!  We know Mermaids are everywhere, coast to coast!  If you experience Mermaid Sightings be sure to email the photo(s) to diane@mermaidcottages.com and you could be featured in a future blog post, too!

Mermaid Sightings and Big Girl Dreams

We love Mermaid Sightings and big girl dreams!  Melissa S., one of our Florida Mermaids, discovered this wonderful blog called House of Estrogen.  It’s a wonderful blog about raising a family and we particularly love the entries about the transformation of a little girl’s dreams into a big girl’s new bedroom.

Mermaid Sightings and Big Girls' Dreams

“This My Big Girl Room!”

The transformation from nursery to big girl room is complete. While my heart aches that we’ll never have another little one in a crib, sanity takes over to remind me that we are COMPLETELY MAXED OUT – in energy, money, patience, and time. When I think about it that way, I’m thrilled to say BUH-BYE to all the baby gear. It is all going to a good home… to my housekeeper’s son and his girlfriend and their due-to-arrive-this-fall baby girl. – Ann and Addison, House of Estrogen… read more
