Eight Times Our Guests Turned Into Mermaids

Here are eight times our guests turned into Mermaids (and Mermen).  Splish, splash, poof and there they were.  No worries.  No stress.  No lines.  No wrinkles.  It’s as if time stood still in that perfect moment.  It’s called Tybee Time.  See for yourself.

“We loved our stay at The Shrimp! It was the perfect Honeymoon cottage for us. Tybee was such a relaxing place. We thoroughly enjoyed the beach, food, and people! We will definitely be returning! We loved the proximity to Savannah and the excellent Mermaid Cottages hospitality. (One example of their hospitality was that they came by our cottage and turned the lights on for us since we would be arriving …

Mermaid sightings on Martha’s Vineyard

I thought my beloved tybee island was full of cottage charm and mermaids but Martha’s Vineyard may be our equal. This charming cottage we are renting in the area called East Chop called the Mermaid Boathouse is ideal for our much needed rest after a long rental season and passing of my mom. This cottage was also featured in Coastal Living magazine and the book Coast by Janelle McCulloch who also came to tybee and included several of our cottages in the same book.

Loving our time here! Let day 2 of our adventure begin!

About the artists, Bo and Morgen:

Mona's Christmas Mermaid

“In August of 2011, an introduction by the pianist at our church led to a personal and professional relationship which has encouraged us to explore our creative talents.
Bo uses wood, both harvested and found, to create beautiful pieces of furniture and home decor items.  He also enjoys capturing local scenery with watercolors.
Morgen enjoys painting with acrylics, photographing the beautiful region in which they live, and creating whimsical items with polymer clay.”

We love learning about these wonderful artists from Darien, GA and we look forward to meeting more of their mermaids!  Thanks to Mermaid Mona for sharing and y’all be sure to send your Mermaid Sightings to diane@mermaidcottages.com.  Mermaids add just the right touch to your holiday decorations!
