DSC_0265Mermaid Cottages’ Buoy 117 has joined our collection and you’re going to love it!  We’re so well known for our cottage charm and coastal calm and that’s just what you’ll get with this wonderful condo.  We asked the owner what she likes most about her condo.  “Ours is two doors down from the pool and the beginning of the dune walk. I fully set up the kitchen with everything that is needed to bake (including a Kitchen Aid mixer), as well as all tools and equipment needed to make cocktails.  It was my mother’s home for 12 years and we have so many happy, fun and beautiful memories. We are blessed to be able to share it with others so that we can keep it in our family.” mermaid cottages' bayside retreat Cute and cozy, this one bedroom condo is in the beachfront condo community of Savannah Beach & Racquet Club…. read more
