Gramping With Mermaid Cottages

Gramping with Mermaid Cottages is a new trend whose time has come.  Grandparents who love to travel and who are looking for new and inventive ways to connect with their grandchildren are also giving some much-needed time alone to their children for a win-win-win situation. We’re entering the shoulder season that’s very desirable for those travelers who love beach vacations without the crowds, the traffic and the long waits for restaurants and recreation. As it turns out, it’s also a great time to indulge grandchildren, strengthen family bonds, and nurture one’s love for connecting families and generations. Tybee Island and Mermaid Cottages just happen to be among the best places to enjoy these skip-generation getaways.

Celebrating Vacation Rental Week March 7-11, 2022

Mermaid Cottages is thrilled to participate in the third annual Vacation Rental Week! Professionally-managed vacation rentals provide value and benefits for guests and property owners alike. This celebration of Vacation Rental Week is our chance to highlight these and to encourage you to book a stay or entrust your vacation property to a professional manager.

FOR GUESTS As a guest, vacation rentals are a great alternative to hotels in every aspect, offering you much more for your money, including additional space, privacy, convenience, and amenities. As we continue navigating the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to point out vacation rentals offer a cleaner, more socially-distanced experience as well, with less touchpoints and outside interaction compared to hotels. Vacation rentals also present you with a unique opportunity to create a more personalized, memorable vacation experience when compared with traditional hotels. You’ll have the practical comfort of an actual residence, the ability to explore the neighborhood, and the opportunity to discover aspects of your destination you might not encounter when staying at a hotel. If you’re vacationing with family, vacation rentals are an excellent option, typically offering multiple bedrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, and easy access to local entertainment.

FOR PROPERTY OWNERS Safely renting your space as a property owner through a professional manager can be an easy and reliable revenue source, transforming it into an asset that offers a significant return on your investment. You’ll also be able to use the property when you choose, spending your own vacations there with family while renting it to guests the rest of the year. A professional vacation rental manager will handle all the logistics, securing responsible guests, and maximizing your return through an expert understanding of the industry and in-depth knowledge of the local community. They’ll also handle cleaning the property to the highest standards, advertise, handle inquiries, collect deposits and balances, generate agreements, and follow-up post-rental, so you can sit back and simply enjoy the experience. HOW TO CONNECT Finding a vacation rental to book or a professional manager to represent your property is fast and easy. Our friends at the Vacation Rental Management Association (VRMA) [] provide a free search tool [] to locate property managers and their available properties worldwide. Find a vacation rental or professional manager for your property and get started in this exciting industry today!
