This allows families to pack light and travel easier, while still having everything they need to keep their little ones safe and happy.

As an Independent Quality Providers (QPs) BabyQuip will deliver, and set up clean, safe, and insured baby gear at Mermaid Cottages. BabyQuip can even meet families at the airport!

Safe And Healthy Stays With Mermaid Cottages

All the Mermaids are delighted you’ll be coming to visit our beloved Tybee Island. The entire world has changed and as a result there are changes we’re making as a Professional Vacation Rental Management Company. Should you have any questions, please call or email our head mermaid, 912 313 0784

Arrivals and departures. More than ever, our housekeeping professionals need the full time to clean our homes between visitors. As a result, we are not allowing any early check ins before 4PM or late check outs after 10AM. We’re sure you want you want your home to be as spotless clean as possible just as the guests checking in after you will. This does require the full cleaning time.

Supplies in the home. We provide a starter supply of Toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, dish soap and dishwasher detergent. We do NOT supply hand soap or disinfectant wipes for the homes. We strongly suggest you bring both with you. The local stores do supply toilet paper and paper towels in the stores, but if you are driving, you might want to bring extra from your home.

Maintenance Issues. For any non emergency issues, our maintenance team will NOT be coming in the home while you’re there. Ideally any non emergency issues can wait until your check out. Any emergencies- AC, appliance, major plumbing issues- our professionals in these areas will come into the homes IF You’re ok with that.

Thank you very much for coming to visit. Our island’s economy relies completely on visitors and tourism and we truly appreciate your support.

26 Tybee Island Doors That Knock Us Out

These are 26 Tybee Island doors that knock us out. Our collection features vintage and historical cottages, but they’re definitely not old and stuffy. They’re happy little houses near the sea and each has a soul of its own.  The eyes are the windows into the soul and these doors are your invitation into our cottage charm and coastal calm.  Knock. Knock.  Who’s there?

Green is the color of balance and growth and emotes self reliance.

Coronavirus Update

To our upcoming Mermaid Cottages Guests,

We hope everyone is staying home, staying safe and staying healthy. As you may or may not know, we have shut Mermaid Cottages down until the first of May, 2020. We are not accepting reservations for the next 30 days. Beyond that, we are allowing new reservations but we are not billing the first half of the payment due until we know what’s going on. We will continue to determine if those reservations are allowed to happen based on the guidelines being set for travel.

Regarding your reservations any time from May 1st, 2020 thru the end of the year. At this time we are not taking any cancellations for those reservations. We are literally taking this situation day by day, even hour by hour. Hopefully, if everyone stays home as they should, the world will open back up. We are NOT charging your second half of the payment the rolling 30 days out like normal. You may still receive an automated email from us saying we are charging your card, but we are not. We need to determine if we’ll need to cancel your reservation or not based on the travel directives.

VERY IMPORTANT: As we have done for all our guest reservations for April, we will refund your money back- everything but the $89 plus tax reservation fee should the recommendations and guidelines continue for NO TRAVEL and to STAY HOME. We are watching the news daily and we will continue to treat each of your situations with care and love and humanity.

We hope this will answer the questions many of you have regarding your reservations and what will be happening.

Thank you!
