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!

Why Choose Mermaid Cottages Vacation Rentals

Why Choose Mermaid Cottages Vacation Rentals? Our happy little houses by the sea have been popular choices for solo travelers, couples, friends, families and groups vacationing for many years. More recently, our cottages have gained mainstream attention. Our cottages offer a home-away-from-home feeling while you’re on vacation. You have many of the same luxuries of home in a Mermaid Cottage, and then there’s our brand standards of cottage charm and coastal calm, and hi-speed Internet for remote working and learning, too. All of our cottages are individually owned, they are comfortably decorated, well-maintained, and fit for everyday life.

Aloha To Our Midwest Mermaid

Aloha To Our Midwest Mermaid. The Midwest Mermaid has been our winter guest blogger and Mermaid Cottages is so sad to share her final blog post. She’s shared a photo blog of her snowbird stay with us as she worked remotely from Tybee Island. Aloha can mean hello or goodbye. In this case we’re hoping it means ’til we meet again. Read along, enjoy her beautiful photos and her Tybee Island Adventures.

One of the best ways to see the island is on a bicycle. There is a specific route that you can take which brings you through parks, former military areas and allows you to see all of the brightly colored houses.

I love that people on the island don’t care how bright their house is, they just embrace the beach colors which makes it so unique and special.
