Mini Mermaid Getaways In July Updated!

Mini Mermaid Getaways in July are perfect for those last minute beach retreats we all love and enjoy when we have two or three nights to take a road trip. Summer is always busy on Tybee Island and many of the available cottages we have open are for week day visits, so they’re easier to enjoy with less traffic and fewer crowds. As always, nothing beats a tropical beach retreat. Tybee Time is the best time to just relax, luxuriate, enjoy wonderful beach eats and to be as active or as inactive as you’d like.  Where can you stay? Take a look at these cottages and these open dates and start planning!

Re-Beachables And The Tybee Clean Beach Volunteers

Re-Beachables and The Tybee Clean Beach Volunteers campaign is a cause very dear to our Mermaids, Mermaid Cottages and our guests. Each year, Tybee Clean Beach Volunteers remove hundreds of discarded or forgotten toys from the beach and give them to a network of volunteers (kids and their parents), who created the Re-beachables program. They clean them up and place a fun selection in a reusable beach bag and offer them to visitors and residents as a gift. What a great way to re-use perfectly good toys and prevent microplastic pollution from entering the ocean. If you have reusable beach toys to donate, please drop them in the marked box at the Tybee Island Visitors Center.

As you valued guests, you can support this program and other beach clean up activities by making a donation to Tybee Clean Beach Volunteers here:

Re-beach. Renew. Refresh. Rejoice. Vacation with a purpose at Mermaid Cottages in Tybee Island. Join in celebration and support of Re-beachables and The Tybee Clean Beach Volunteers!

Mini Mermaid Getaways In June Updated!

Mini Mermaid Getaways are waiting to welcome you to Tybee Island for short getaways that are still full of our cottage charm and coastal calm. It’s going to be a glorious summer of getting back to normal. We’re excited to see repeat guests and to meet new guests who are just as elated to be on vacation again.  Understanding that not everyone has the opportunity to spend a week or longer at the beach, we’re happy to be flexible with our minimum night stay requirements to welcome guests who are looking for two and three night stays.  Here’s what we have available for June, so check your calendars and choose a marvelous Mini Mermaid Getaway that’s perfect for you!

Masks Off And Paddles Up For Tybee Time

Masks off and paddles up for Tybee Time with Mermaid Cottages. We’re all breathing much easier and that means we should get out and enjoy lots of outdoor recreation. From our coastal cottages’ decor to the beautiful surroundings of our little barrier island. Stunning and natural. Relaxed and bodacious. Just wait until you take it all in from the water level of a kayak or standing up on a paddleboard. Celebrate our island life.
