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.

(One example of their hospitality was that they came by our cottage and turned the lights on for us since we would be arriving …

What The Shell? Let’s Go Beachy

what the shell?  let's go beachyWhat the shell?  Let’s go beachy with our décor!  Of course, we love working with our cottage owners to create that special cottage charm and you can do it, too.  Who says your home has to be right at the waters edge for you to let all shell break loose?  You might be land locked, but you go right ahead and create your own island paradise in your own home, too.  Here are a few inspirations that’ll have you going coastal in no time.

Mermaid Mona visits several beaches up and down the east coast every summer and she has a great eye for just the right items to compliment her coastal style.  She regularly shares her decorating projects and her photographs of her cottage style and here’s a beautiful tablescape she recently created.

Mermaids Make A Difference At Second Harvest

Mermaids Make A Difference T-ShirtOne of our brand standards at Mermaid Cottages is our commitment to conservation and volunteer opportunities in our area.  We put on our Mermaids Make A Difference T-shirts and Mermaid hats and we dig in to help where we’re needed.  This Saturday, February 1st, is when our Mermaids make a difference at Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia.  Each month, Second Harvest volunteers pack approximately 765 boxes of food to be delivered to local senior citizens in need.  Many times, our seniors are forced to choose between refilling their prescription medications, paying utilities and buying food.

The mission of the food bank is to feed the hungry by distributing nutritious food to nonprofit agencies and at risk elderly and youth, to assist in disaster relief, and work towards long term solutions to hunger and poverty. Their statement of purpose is “Utilizing food and education to improve lives and create a Hunger-Free community”. …
