Tybee Cottage Swoons: Will It Go Round In Circles

crabby pirate sun at mermaid cottagesMermaids (and mermen) adore the details that make up our Tybee cottage swoons.  Will It Go Round In Circles has us thinking about our love of décor, architecture and the little surprises peeking out from our little color boxes. Circles are frequently used as sun symbols and as representing things associated with the sun.  Likewise, circles can also signify unity, wholeness and infinity.  We just love how circles frame up the best features of our Tybee tiny houses.  They’ve got us all wrapped up with hugs and here are some of our favorites.

Whispering Palms circa 1925

Vitamin Sea Cottage

Come now.  Just how cute and fun can an outdoor shower be?  Well, just reach up  and grab the shower curtain attached to the semi-circular frame.  Say “swoosh” as you close off all of your worries and cares from the outside and wash away your troubles.  Guests love this light, cheerful cottage!  It comes with a screened porch, fenced-in yard, and partial marsh views from the back deck and the porch!

Madelyn’s on the Marsh circa 1940

Madelyn's on the Marsh circa 1940Can polka dots make you happy?  You bet they can.  Especially, when they dot the shutters and the outside shower of this cottage on the marsh.  Just wait ’til your eyes light up and the corners of your mouth turn up.  That’s what’ll happen when you watch the amazing sunrises and sunsets here.

Tybee Tides circa 1930

The circular design of these pavers delights us with circles set in stone. Go ahead and hop and skip and twirl around. The setting of this cottage is quite the moving experience.

A Tybee Island Vacation

A Tybee Island vacation is one that helps you let go and unwind.  It’s a place where the hands on the clock are a reminder to slow things down and to live in the moment. Of course, it’s always easier to let the stresses fall away when you’re enjoying a happy little cottage near the sea.  We have just such a cottage in mind for your next getaway.

Mermaid Cottages Have Circa Dates

Some Mermaid Cottages have circa dates and that’s our way of identifying the time periods that some of our structures were built.  Often times, we know from historical records exactly when a cottage was erected.  Other times, we may not know the exact dates, but we know a cottage can be tracked back within a general range of dates through tax records and/or real estate transactions. Regardless, we are committed to saving, restoring and maintaining as many of Tybee Island’s historic structures as possible.  Fortunately, we are not alone.  Our individual cottages owners and our fabulous team of Mermaids (and Mermen!) are dedicated caretakers.  Our wonderful Tybee community supports historic preservation, as well.  Just take a look at some of the decades and eras represented in our collection of happy little seaside homes.
