Foam For The Holidays

Instead of crowding everyone in your home this year, invite everyone to book a Mermaid Cottages home full of cottage charm and coastal calm.  And, instead of spending all of your time in the kitchen you can just eat out in Tybee Island or Savannah or have your Thanksgiving meal catered in!  That’ll leave plenty of time for you to just sit back, enjoy the beach and let our delicious sea foam wash away your cares. …

This show celebrates the unique artistic relationship between mother and son. In the words of Mallory, “I am an artist, because of my mother”. The influence worked both ways and we are proud to display the results. Mallory has published 15 books with Dover and recently added “The Lowcountry-A Naturalist’s Field Guide to Coastal Georgia, The Carolinas, and North Florida” to his accomplishments. …

Southern Island Getaway

Is it getting a little breezy and chilly where you are? Well, a southern island getaway is in order and we’ve got just the cure for your cold weather blues! Tybee Tides Cottage!

Southern Island Getaway

“Vacation to me means relaxation and no schedule. It means a quiet place to stay and miles of beach to walk. Tybee Tides provided exactly what I was looking for. This beautiful cottage is located on a quiet street that overlooks a salt marsh where I can watch the tide come in and out and the sun go down. I can walk a block to a nice shoreside restaurant and ten minutes to a great beach. I can sit on a beautiful screen porch and chat with neighbors I have never met before walking their dogs. There are many great little restaurants to have a meal and talk to the owners who actually run them. The main street is not fancy or even quaint but has a beach town feel where wearing your cargo shorts and a tee shirt and riding your bike with a baseball cap on your head seem right at home. Mermaids made coming and going as simple and welcoming as could be hoped for. No finding an office, hoping it would be open, and waiting in line for a key and signing a bunch of paper. Just go to the cottage and move in. It was as clean and neat as home and I loved the outdoor shower. We are moving from Cleveland to the Charlotte area next year and one of the big pluses will be that we can return to Tybee Tides with a half day drive. We will most certainly do so. Thanks to the Michauds for making this treasure available to lovers of the laid back.” …
