The Midwest Mermaid

The Midwest Mermaid is our winter guest blogger and Mermaid Cottages is so happy to introduce you to her. She’ll be sharing a photo blog of her snowbird stay with us as she works remotely from Tybee Island.  We know you’ll enjoy her escapades and you’ll look forward to each new blog. Who is The Midwest Mermaid? One of the many mermaids-at-large from around the world we’re happy to have in our pod.

“It occurred to me I could mix things up and create an adventure.”

“Living in a high rise in Chicago, I realized late last year that it wouldn’t be healthy for me (mentally or physically) to stay all winter while in the middle of a pandemic.  I knew I couldn’t continue to live in a place where I am not able to be outside due to snow, ice and wind chills.  On top of that, for the first time in my life, I wasn’t heading to the airport every other week as I am in sales.  I had this unique window of time where I was working from home exclusively.  It occurred to me I could mix things up and create an adventure.

“I knew I couldn’t continue to live in a place where I am not able to be outside due to snow, ice and wind chills.”

I decided to rent a cottage for two months to break up the monotony of life.  I now wake up to birds chirping instead of sirens. And, all of my friends in Chicago are envious of my new office view of Palm Trees verses snow.  Mermaid Cottages affords me the ability to create a productive work space in a tranquil environment.  Although my “snowbird” lifestyle came earlier than expected in life, I wouldn’t trade this for the world.  I now understand the charm of Tybee and I am excited to be on island time for the foreseeable future.” – The Midwest Mermaid

“My temporary home! I haven’t lived on the first floor of any place my entire adult life. I have always had a doorman or needed to buzz someone up. This is wild.”

We’re as excited as you are to see her photos and to read about her Tybee Island adventures. And, once you see how easy it is to stay and play and to remotely work and learn from a Mermaid Cottage, you’ll be planning your snowbird getaway to Tybee Island!

  1. Sue, I love the smiles and happiness coming from your posts! It lifts the spirits of us poor souls under gray skies! Please keep it up!

  2. I have stayed in this charming cottage a couple times and I can honestly say that it is a comfortable and relaxing cottage. Time slows down on this beautiful island. All the stress you have been holding inside you leaves and you start to actually breath like never before. Tybee island is a recommended RX for anyone looking for peace and harmony with nature’s gift.
