Our Favorite Tybee Island Porches

Spring is the best time to enjoy our favorite Tybee Island porches. We can’t help but feature some of our best places in celebration of warmer weather.  With weather this gorgeous, even our pods of Mermaids love to perch in just the right places to see and be seen.  Some are perfect for alone time for reading and for napping, while others provide just the right ambience and ocean breezes for al fresco dining.  Whether you like ’em way up high or down low on top of a stoop, Mermaid Cottages has all kinds of porches.  Come on down.  Pick one out.  Get really comfortable and hold out your hands for sweet tea, water melons and decadent desserts.  It’s porch sittin’ time and we’ll show y’all just where and how to do it!

Brooks Cottage

Sprawl out, belly up like an old cat drawing on the morning sun. Jackknife across the hand made quilts after a few too many mint juleps, or gather up all your sweet dreams to savor atop the day bed swing.

Back River Bungalow

How ’bout a gracious, wrap-around porch that sits way up high?  This one sits along the Back River where you can throw up your hand to wave at the kayakers and the paddle boarders making their way to launch

Sea turtles on Tybee Island

Sea turtles on Tybee Island

Welcome to Tybee Island,
home of nesting sea turtle mamas!

Just in time for Mother’s Day, sea turtle mamas are coming back to Tybee to nest!

Every year sea turtles come back to Tybee to lay their magical eggs, and Mermaid Cottages is a huge supporter of these hardworking moms.

You can help too! Stay in a Mermaid vacation rental and every sip of our rich delicious Mermaid Bliss (#MMMBliss) coffee helps sea turtles on Tybee and around the world!! 

YOU can be Mermazing, too ~ our coffee is available for purchase so you can share the love! 

Every stay at a Mermaid Cottage and every sip you take of Mermaid Morning Bliss helps Tybee sea turtles… and sea turtles around the world! 

With each small batch, hand-roasted bag, we donate a portion to help the NESTS project here on Tybee Island with the Tybee Marine Science Center (plus we donate our time watching turtle nests!) and the Georgia Sea Turtle Center!  

Be a hero and buy a bag for yourself AND take some home for Mermazing gifts!
 Tybee had 23 (!) sea logger nests last Turtle Season!
We love supporting these sweet babies and their moms in any way we can. 

For your first wake up on Tybee! 

We make it easy ~ and philanthropical ~ to wake up on Tybee in a Mermaid Cottage. Your first wake up on Tybee will be filled with fresh, salty ocean air AND the enticing aroma of our freshly brewed coffee
