It’s busy time for Tybee Island vacation rentals and that means lots of guests staying a week or longer back to back. Maybe it’s not convenient for you to stay an entire week, but most places require you to book 5-7 nights at a time. What do you do? Well, thanks to the growing interest in our little barrier island we sometimes have two nights open here or three nights available there, which means more options for you! Just give us a call when you’ve got a couple of days for a getaway and say, “Give me some more Mini Mermaid Getaways!” These are also great for last minute, spur-of-the-moment road trips to the beach, too!
For instance, June 28th and 29th some of our favorite cottages are available. Wouldn’t it be great to hop down for some Tybee Time? You can just finish up your work week on Friday and get a good night’s rest at home. Then, pop out of bed Saturday morning, pack a light bag and hit the road. Even if you can’t spend the night Sunday night (boy, those jobs really expect you to show up Monday mornings, don’t they?) by booking both nights you can enjoy a late check out on Sunday. Spend the entire day at the beach and then take your time heading back home with no worries about checking out at a certain time.
