Mucho Mini Getaways


Mucho Mini GetawaysHey all you Mermaids-In-Waiting, we’ve got some mucho mini getaways that are available and we want you to come enjoy the beach.  Sometimes, we end up with “holes” in our calendar and we want to fill them up.  As of today, three of your favorite cottages are available right away and that means huge savings for you.  Just check out these cozy cottages and the date ranges and them give us a call or email us.  Just what will make your last minute trip to Tybee Island too good to resist?  Do you need lots of bedrooms, coastal charm, room for pets and a great beach, too?  We’re ready to make magic happen, so tell us how we can make this work for you and then start packing! …

Race To The Sea

There’s a race to the sea going on this week and you can come out and cheer!

Sea Turtles in Tybee Island

Since we had two nests hatch in one night, we will have two excavations in one night, this Friday, July 27.  They will be happening AT THE SAME TIME at 8:15pm  in two very different locations!  Turtle Tammy and Tybee Sea Turtle Project advise they must do this to make sure they can release any possible live hatchlings at dark. …

How’s Your Penmanship?

I’m gonna sit right down and write myself a letter…and pretend that it came from you…

…and I’m gonna write it on a Mermaid Cottages Note Card  from the new collection by the fabulous Fifi Flowers!  There’s the new cottage collection and the always wonderful pet collection and Fifi’s wonderful, whimsical calendars to mark off the days until your next visit to Mermaid Cottages and Tybee Island. …

Sea Turtle Season: Tybee Island’s Sea Turtle season runs from May 1st thru Oct 31st. During this time Loggerhead Sea Turtles come to our beaches to lay their eggs, and 60 days later hatch, and the babies race to the sea.

Mermaid Cottages has always been a proud supporter of the NESTS program and the Tybee Island Marine Science Center Sea Turtle Project. Now, the Mermaid Morning Bliss will help us in these efforts!  For more information about Tybee Sea Turtles or to find out how you can be involved, click here to visit the website or call (912) 786-5917 for more information.


A Wrap-up to the Tybee Turtle Season

Great news! Nest Number Nine hatched September 16th! There were a few reports of disoriented babies, but they all made it to the waiting waves just fine. The wonderful people with the Tybee Sea Turtle Project excavated the evening of  September 20th and in all, 45 healthy babies hatched! There were no stragglers or casualties left in the nest, so this nest was a super success!

Tybee Island Sea Turtle ProjectIt’s a great way to wrap up the 2011 Tybee Island sea turtle season for sure! Thanks to everyone with the Tybee Sea Turtle Project for all your hard work and dedication. We can’t wait to see what the 2012 season will bring!
