Happy Little Cottages By The Sea

Cottage Charm, Coastal Calm

Conch Cottage

Conch Cottage is the hidden jewel of beach cottages! This newest addition to our collection of happy little houses by the sea is a true, iconic Tybee Beach Cottage.

Conch Cottage

With three full bedrooms and two full bathrooms, it offers plenty of space including a roomy screened porch to relax after a day at the very nearby beach (it’s just two short blocks to the Second Street Beach!)

Conch Cottage

Conch Cottage is the perfect blending of old Tybee and new conveniences. To add to its already great guest-ready benefits, Conch Cottage is pet-friendly (dogs and cats are welcome) and offers a beautiful outdoor shower with hot and cold water amenities that beach guests love!

Conch Cottage

The backyard is fully fenced-in to allow dogs to be outside. Another new amenity available at all of our cottages is our electric bike service. Our friends at Bee Bikes will deliver your bike rental right to your cottage. Choose from Segway and traditional electric bikes and be sure to save 10% off the rental rate when you use our special guest code Mermaid 10 with your advance reservation.

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.

Mermaids And Pirates

Mermaids and pirates go together very swimmingly and there’s still room for you to come in fins up for Tybee Island Pirate Fest. Escape the ordinary, if only for a weekend, this October 5-8, 2023. Entertainment includes live music, pirate performers, a parade, and a few surprises in between. This family fun festival is designed with fun for pirates of all ages. Even the littlest pirates will enjoy an entire area devoted to quality family entertainment. Children also enjoy participating in our costume contests and pirate parade.

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.

Mermaid Cottages invites you to vacation with a purpose during your stays. You’ll find our favorite voluntourism events on our calendar and you can always check with our Mermaids for other opportunities that might be available, too. Also during your stays, here are ways you can help us stay more green.

* Use the outdoor clothesline to dry your clothes (they smell good too!)

* Open the windows turn on the ceiling fans and enjoy the ocean breezes!

* Use Cold, not Hot in the washing machine

* Draw your curtains/blinds during the heat of the day

Save Fuel and Drive Less

* Walk, ride bikes, rent scooters or electric cars!

The City is requesting that residents participate in a voluntary recycling drop-off program.

There are four locations where residents may drop off their recyclables. Recycling trailers are located in Memorial Park, Jaycee Park, and on the west side of Polk Street between Fort Avenue and Bay Street.

Residents may also drop off their recyclables at the Department of Public Works (DPW) Facility located at 76 Polk Street. The trailers are available 24 hours a day, but the DPW facility is open between the hours 7:30 AM to 3:30 PM weekdays, and 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM on the weekends.

The City is currently accepting the following recyclable materials at all locations:

Plastics #1 and #2
Aluminum cans and bottles
Tin Cans
Mixed paper – office, newspaper, and magazines
The recycling trailers each have four compartments to separate your recyclables. Plastics #1 and #2 will go in one compartment; aluminum and tin cans will go in one compartment; mixed paper in one compartment; and cardboard in the last compartment. Please put the appropriate materials in the designated compartment.

At the DPW facility, there are separate dumpsters for cardboard, plastics, aluminum and tin, and a separate smaller dumpster for mixed paper. Staff will direct you to the appropriate bins.

Please separate recyclables and put them in the appropriate containers. In addition, please breakdown cardboard prior to putting it into the containers to allow more material to fit.

Reduce, Reuse

* Take your own bags to the grocery store

* Use Dish Cloths and cloth napkins and less paper products

Conserve Water

* While brushing teeth, turn water off, and use a cup of water to cleanse mouth of toothpaste
