Screened Inn Charm

Our guests love our Tybee Island paradise and our Screened Inn charm!

Historic and charming Tybee Island vacation rentals

Kerri T from Muldrow, OK recommends this vacation rental

“We had a lovely stay at charming “Screened Inn”. The cottage was just as it appears in the photos online and was perfect for myself, my daughter, parents and sister. We loved the screened in porch, the cozy kitchen, the comfy living area and the beds were absolutely heavenly to sleep in. The access to the park and the beach was easy and convenient. We drove into Savannah on several occasions and found it to be a quick and uncomplicated drive. Would recommend Crab Shack and Fannies on Tybee, Old Savannah Trolley Tours, Wormsloe Historic Site, Bonaventure Cemetery, River Street, Tybee Island Light Station and the beautiful beaches of Tybee. We’ll be back!!! The Mermaid Cottages staff was wonderful!!” …

Georgia Peach

Hand Picked Georgia Peaches

These are truly the taste of summer to me.  I remember when I was a boy. That would be the 60’s for me. Biting into a fresh picked and tree ripened peach and thinking it was the most delicious thing I’d ever tasted.  I had on of these for lunch today and that long ago food memory came back to me.  They are hard to resist so don’t.
