Tybee For The Holidays

Tybee For The Holidays is everyone’s favorite time of year when we string tinsel and lights on everything that stands still long enough to get a proper draping. It’s also when our guests get to enjoy complimentary parking with the Park TYB App until New Year’s Day. This offer is only valid while using the Park TYB App on your smartphone. It’s also a time when our Mermaid elves get busy decorating some of our most popular cottages for your holiday getaways. Tis the season to enjoy Tybee, so come on down and experience your happiest holidays ever!

10 Best Landing Spots For Santa Claus

The 10 Best Landing Spots For Santa Claus

The 10 best landing spots for Santa Claus just happen to be on Tybee Island and all are cottages from Mermaid Cottages. Ordinarily, with snow on the ground where you are, Santa must land his sleigh on the ridges of steep roofs around the world. Not so on our little barrier island. Tybee Island has a long stretch of flat, sandy beaches just perfect for that soft touch landing Rudolph and the other reindeer dream about. No matter which cottage you choose for your Christmas vacation, the ocean is not far away, which also pleases the reindeer team so they can cool off their hooves in the surf. Which cottage is best for you? You decide and when you make your reservations, let us know if you’d like your cottage decorated for the holidays.  Our Mermaids and our cottage owners love to decorate, so just imagine how magical it will be to open the door to your own holiday-themed decor.

Mermaid Schools

Mermaid Schools

Mermaid schools are in session. No, we’re not talking about pods of Mermaids in the ocean (they’re everywhere, though…). We’re talking about the schools, teachers, and classrooms Mermaid Cottages has adopted for this school year. Head Mermaid Diane got schooled recently when she learned over 96% of teachers provide school supplies with their own money so their students aren’t left out. In fact, most teachers spend over $750 of their own money each school year. With these facts in hand, Diane rallied our team to adopt some local schools with teachers, classrooms, and students who need help. Teachers are working harder than ever to help students catch up and excel. We’re doing our part to help. These teachers are teaching us how to be better helpers, too.

Take A Selfie With A Sea Turtle

Take a selfie with a sea turtle? Well, it is sea turtle nesting season on Tybee Island and most of the action takes place in the dark of night. These nesting mommies are on a mission, so they may not welcome the intrusion or any flash of light. The solution? Plan to stay at our Blue Skies for your next Tybee vacation. A very colorful sea turtle also lives there in the front and she never minds posing for photos with our guests!

Blue Skies is a beautiful, newly updated and decorated beach townhome full of art by local artists; the only thing missing is you.
