Mermaid Cottages Guest Reviews

Mermaid Cottages guest reviews are the best advertising that no amount of money can buy. Just as every cottage in our collection has its own soul, each of these guests came to Tybee Island to receive their best Mermaid experience and our owners and our team members work together to make sure that happens. A life of service is a life well-lived and our Mermaids are the best at what they do.  Don’t just take our word for it.  We’re happy to let our guests say it best.

Another Great Stay at Enlisted Mens Mess Hall. We usually stay in May, so going in August we got to experience new things. Surfing competition, we never dreamed was possible, but there it was! Weather was great, a little hot but that’s what the beach is all about. We got to enjoy more local produce and the seafood was great as always. Tammy took care of everything and Adam and Constance had the cottage clean and ready. Special kudos to Lauren the Wasp Eliminator for his efforts. See you next time!

Great House Close to Beach and Restaurants. We had a great time staying at the house. Was walking distance to the beach and several restaurants on Tybee Island. It was everything we were looking for and definitely will be back in the future. Tammy was fantastic as well.

Tybee Daze – The home you will never want to leave! This was my favorite rental Ever!! The place was beautiful and the area was Perfect!!
These ladies thought of everything to make it easier to stay away from home. The coffee is beyond wonderful – be sure to buy some from Seaside Sisters. This is by far the best shop on Tybee!! Make sure to get your Mermaid Cottage T-shirts and ball caps while you are there. Don’t be in a hurry! There is so much to look at in this great shop! The Tybee Daze Cottage was so clean and neat! Another wonderful blessing was Tammy! She went above and beyond to help with everything I had questions about.

Couldn’t ask for a better cottage to rent!! From the walk in the screened porch, we knew this was going to be a great place to stay. Once inside the cottage, we were immediately taken with the beach decor. The open concept living/kitchen makes cooking a meal or two actually enjoyable. The bedrooms are a decent size and the bathrooms in the older home are bigger than in other cottages we have rented. And best of all, the beach is just a short two blocks away. We have been renting from Mermaid Cottages for seven years now. This is our fourth cottage (we rented Nora’s Cottage for 3 years)and it’s now our new favorite. In addition, the staff at Mermaid Cottage are the best!! They are one of the main reasons we come back year after year. Tammy called me a few days before our trip to make sure we had all the information needed, checked on us after our arrival and answered any questions we had. Every chance we get we recommend to friends vacationing at Tybee Island to reserve a cottage from Mermaid Cottages.
crabby pirate cottage
Crabby Pirate to the rescue! Diane and Tammy at Mermaid Cottages were beyond excellent! They worked with me not only to book a Tybee vacation within my budget but also to make the rental as allergy-free as possible. We used our vacation at Crabby Pirate to relax and recharge after a couple of busy weeks of preparing for a long vacation and celebrating my nephew’s wedding activities in Savannah. We had not stayed by the marsh with any of our previous Tybee adventures and did not know what to expect for the 10 days at Crabby Pirate. The beds were comfortable, the air conditioner unit and appliances worked great along with the shower and bath water pressure. A lot of meals were enjoyed outside on the patio. Chairs at the back of the house by the marsh were so welcomed as we enjoyed reading our books and just peacefully relaxed looking at the marsh and birds. While inside on rainy days, we enjoyed movies, TV shows, playing cards, and reading. Thank you Mermaid Cottages!

Tybee At Its Finest. The house is absolutely wonderful, and only a short walk to the beach. It was well furnished and very spacious. 4 kids and 4 adults fit comfortably. There is a playground directly across Butler, and many shops and restaurants within walking distance. Tammy was very helpful and easy to get a hold of. She even dropped off some delicious cookies!

Teamwork makes the dream work and we couldn’t ask for a finer group of owners, managers, customer service specialists, vacation planners and friends. When are y’all coming? We’ve plenty of Mermaid Magic to make your stay, too!
