Cozy Cottages & Happy Homes

Cottage Charm, Coastal Calm


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!

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!

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
