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.

Tybee Island: What, When & Wear In May

tybee island: what, when & wear in mayTybee Island: What, When & Wear in May is full of great tips to make your Sun Days the best fun days during your visit!  The Mermaid Cottages mermaids and our cottage management teams have been working with our cottage owners to update, redo, fluff and stuff our happy homes by the sea with everything you’ll need for your girls getaways, mancations, vacations, weddings and babymooners‘ visits.  With mild temperatures, clean beaches, arts, entertainment and fresh seafood that’ll have y’all saying, “Goodness Gracious!”, here are some of our favorite things to see, do and snap up while you’re here.

Drip Dry and Water-proof

Cast off those overcoats, scarves and sweaters.  Spring has sprung and you’ll want to be able to hit the beach at a moments notice.  May is also when the locals kick off our high season with an all-out, but very friendly water war known as Beach Bum Parade.  You and your wardrobe may be all wet, but the laughs and the smiles will ensure you’re cute and giggly.  Keep it beachy and breezy with our new Mermaid Cottages shirts, tees and caps at Seaside Sisters.

Be A Part of the Artsy Crowd

Whether you sing it, act it, sculpt it, paint it or cover it in sand, it’s still art.  Get tickets to the best live shows in town at Tybee Post Theater and Tybee Arts Association.  Then, explore intimate and cozy cottages and splendid beach abodes with Tybee Island Tour of Homes and get that swing with Jazz at the Beach!
