Keepin’ It REAL!

The lookouts are on alert!

We’re on hand to greet the next REAL…

No, it’s not a new installment of the Real Housewives Franchise…it’s something better!


Everyone knows that human-folks enjoy our quirky island and our vintage cottages, but some of our favorite sightings are the dogs (and some Puddy-Tats) we encounter.

Some are year round residents while others are here just for visits, but either way we love meeting them and learning about their adventures around Tybee.

Send us photos of your furiends enjoying Tybee and they just might end up on The Real Barkhounds of Tybee!¬† Oh, come on…if you send us photos of your pets enjoying themselves no matter where they are we’ll probably post their pics, too.

And, you can’t get a better shot than that of your dog enjoying our delicious, all natural dog treats, Beach Bum Biscuits.

Just go to mermaidcottages.com, click on our BLOG link, post your photos and stories on our Beach Bum Biscuits¬†FACEBOOK page and we’ll do the rest!



It’s another picture perfect day on Tybee with loads of stuff to do.

Get out there and have a dog-gone good time!

Drop by the Guard House and meet Tybee Police Chief, Bob Bryson from 3-5 pm.

Call or email Dr. Joe and reserve your spot for a Tybee Beach Ecology Trip! 912-596-5362 or joe@ceasurf.com.

But, first and foremost, grab the leash and take a long walk through our island community with your best furiends!

It’s the best way to get Tybee-ized!

Mermaids Make A Difference:You Gotta Have A Fancy Hat!

It’s Springtime on Tybee and that means it’ll soon be time for the Tybee Trolley to take a trip as part of Tybee’s Irish Celebration Parade.  Riding on the trolley will be some very special revelers-residents from the Oceanside and Savannah Beach Nursing and Rehabilitation center!

If you’re an honored guest you’ve got to have a special Irish hat, so the Mermaids from Mermaid Cottages, their guests and friends recently gathered to help the Oceanside and Savannah Beach residents create some fabulous chapeaus for their ride in the parade.  Blarney!

Mermaids Make A Difference in many ways and they’ll tell you if you want to be in a parade you gotta have a fancy hat!
