Cottage Charm, Coastal Calm

Tybee Island Is So Adoorable

Tybee Island is so a-door-able!  Just like our down home folksy charm, shopping at the Tybee Mall and our penchant for costumes, hilarity and outrageousness, the doors to our cozy cottages welcome you in.  Let’s take a tour around the island and you’ll see some doors that speak to you.  We might even get to look inside what’s behind some of them.  Look out, Tybeetians.  We’ve come a knockin’!

Blue Heron circa 1940 is a restored 1940’s beach cottage with all the coastal charm imaginable.  You’ll enjoy its high ceilings, hardwood floors and a luxury master bath shower you must experience to appreciate.  We love when our pet guests bring along their well-behaved humans and there’s a fully fenced yard to keep them safe.  Our many, many repeat guests to this cottage love the large screened porch, as it’s the perfect place to enjoy your Mermaid’s Morning Bliss Coffee!

Breeze Inn circa 1942

We love this “Pretty In Pink” front door at Mary Kay Andrews’ Breeze Inn circa 1942.  This is one of Mary Kay Andrews’ two personal beach cottages.  She furnished and named this gorgeous home with a nod to the fictional Breeze Inn Motel in her best-selling novel, “Savannah Breeze”.  She designed the awesome chef’s kitchen and recently renovated her screened back porch.  Each stay comes with a complimentary autographed MKA Book, too!

Ebbtide Cottage circa 1932

Ooh, la, la describes these fancy French double doors that lead you in to one of the bedrooms at Mary Kay Andrews’ other beach house, Ebbtide Cottage circa 1932. Ebbtide is an original Tybee raised cottage brimming with vintage charm, modern conveniences and ocean views.  It’s named after the beach house in her New York Times bestseller “Summer Rental”!

Blues Away Cottage circa 1955

Some of our “adoorable” doors lead to luxury amenities like our trademark outdoor showers.   Blues Away Cottage circa 1955 is a short four block walk to the beach and it’s always a special treat to shower away the sand and the sea here.  This colorful gem was just remodeled throughout by Jane Coslick Designs & Restorations, so you know it’s a real showplace!  The large, fenced-in backyard is ideal for children and there’s a beautiful screened porch, too.  Blues Away is close to other Mermaid Cottages, making it perfect for groups traveling together who want their own individual cottages!

Whitecaps circa 1897

Even the doors to the TV cabinet in the master bedroom at Whitecaps circa 1897 are vintage.  This elegant and historic Officer’s Row home is just steps from the beach with ocean views from the front porch.

Tybee Daze circa 1958

The gates into our outdoor rooms and gardens are “adoorable”, too.  Tybee Daze Cottage circa 1958 is located on a quiet street only five blocks to the beach.  This special home is filled with the original art by the owner and his sense of style is apparent throughout.  It’s located close to the Back River Beach, the fishing pier and the Alley III Kayak area.

Tybee Island is so “adoorable” and we can’t wait for you to come down and walk through our doors.  Each one is like an opening into the soul of each cottage.  They’re cozy, coastal, warm and happy.  Just think how “adoorable” you’ll be once you’re here!
