Gramping With Mermaid Cottages

Gramping with Mermaid Cottages is a new trend whose time has come.  Grandparents who love to travel and who are looking for new and inventive ways to connect with their grandchildren are also giving some much-needed time alone to their children for a win-win-win situation. We’re entering the shoulder season that’s very desirable for those travelers who love beach vacations without the crowds, the traffic and the long waits for restaurants and recreation. As it turns out, it’s also a great time to indulge grandchildren, strengthen family bonds, and nurture one’s love for connecting families and generations. Tybee Island and Mermaid Cottages just happen to be among the best places to enjoy these skip-generation getaways.

Mermaid Cottages And Novelties

Mermaid Cottages and novelties are a match made more perfect when you visit and admire them during your stays.  Some cottages are solely decorated by their owners and sometimes owners ask us to add a few mermaid touches here and there.  Other times, our guests have such special bonds with their favorite cottages we often find secret baubles and mementos they leave behind and that’s okay. One of the greatest pleasures we enjoy is when our guests love our happy little houses as much as we do. Here are some of our favorite geegaws, gimcracks and objets d’art. Some you’ll recognize from your own stays and others are included to entice you to seek them out during your end-of-summer and fall getaways.  Are any of these among your favorite bijou?

Rain Porches And Mermaid Cottages

Rain Porches and Mermaid Cottages go together like cottage charm and coastal calm. The slanted roofs that hang out over them do serve a purpose.  They help protect our happy little homes by the sea from wind and rain and their designs help the overhangs adjust to the dampness and the humidity. No matter their functional aspects, it’s the very calming and romantic serenades they produce with the rain that makes them so desirable and enjoyable.  Porches with ceiling fans and screened additions help extend our porch-sitting season and when these roofs shield us from the wind and direct the rain away from our rockers and swings the tunings of the rainfall delight and enchant. These are some of our favorite rain porches and mermaid cottages.  Have you enjoyed rainy days during your Tybee Island visit?
