Overview

Tybee Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 7

1411 Jones Avenue, Tybee Island, GA 31328 This fully renovated cottage faces East and is hidden behind a canopy of grapefruit , orange, fig and lime trees. No smoking - even on the porches, please. This mid-century, all-electric home has been restored using the "reduce, reuse and recyle" concepts. The owners were as "green" as possible - the "Energy Star" high efficiency washer, dryer, refrigerator, bamboo blinds; and all the rooms have ceiling fans to circulate the air inside and all light bulbs are CFL. We do have an outdoor shower ( solar powered) and enclosed; a great hot and cold outdoor shower for rinsing off beach sand and saltwater before heading inside! The original 1950's bathroom is still Mamie Eisenhower pink which was the color of choice for the women of the 1950's. The 2nd bathroom is a large walk in shower with rain forest shower head. Our guests love this shower!!!

This cottage is the beach home of a couple from Tennessee who had discovered Tybee a few years ago . This beach haven reminded them of the shore towns they had visited as a children. The home is a summary of the owners' love of the ocean, coastal south and the wonderful memories they have from trips to the beach. They look foward to sharing their cottage with others who need a peaceful retreat to rejuvenate and create Memories at the Beach with their family and friends.

Complimentary off-street parking for 3 cars.

Complimentary WiFi.

Minimum Age Requirement: Must be 25 years of age to rent this property.

Please note: Longer minimum stay requirements of up to 7 nights will apply during certain times of the year including holidays and our summer season.

About Mermaid Cottages

We fell in love with Tybee Island over 10 years ago and it continued to draw us nearer each time we visited. Always being partial to the eastern beaches we enjoyed the quaint, unspoiled features of Tybee and decided that a vacation rental might be something we would enjoy. A lot of work and expense later we now have the most wonderful cottage that we can share with visitors and friends and family. We have gone to the extreme to make it comfortable and fun. One of the best compliments we have received is how peaceful it is. Memories are precious and we have so many wonderful memories of trips to the beach. We now can provide a place where other people can create their own special memories. Thus we have named our cottage 'Memories at the Beach'. We promise you will love it!

Why Mermaid Cottages chose Tybee Island

We purchased this home in Tybee Island, Georgia after visiting the area over 7 to 8 years and staying in vacation cottages on the island. We loved the casual lifestyle, the friendly residents and the concern that they have for preserving the island. It is so convenient to Savannah, Georgia and its wonderful history. Tybee Island is 'Paradise Found!'

What makes this cottage unique

The 1950's cottage has been completely 'greenovated'. All improvements were made as environmentally friendly as possible. The home is quiet as it was insulated with spray soy insulation. This also makes is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It has easy access with just one step to the inside of the porches and one step to inside the cottage. The entire home was painted with NO VOC paints where possible. Light fills the home from the sky lights and the new shower has a skylight and glass blocks. The new porches provide lots of seating areas to visit after a day at the beach or a tour around Savannah. There are 3 new queen size beds plus a twin bed in one bedroom. A roll-away is available upon request. There is a dining room with seating for 8. New washer and dryer are in the utility hall. The floor plan flows and makes the entire home useable and comfortable. Coffee service is provided and includes a sample of Savannah Bee honey. This is truly a wonderful retreat.

Reviewer Comments:

Once again, the Mermaids come through! We had a great vacation, and this charming cottage made an excellent "home base" for us from which to stage our ventures throughout the area. The property was clean, comfortable and very inviting The decor put us in "beach mode" immediately, and breakfasts on the screened porches was the ideal way to start the day. The owner and property managers did an awesome job in making us feel welcome! We would recommend unconditionally not only this property, but also the Mermaids and Tybee to anyone looking for a great experience! While there, enjoy the beach and restaurants on Tybee and all the wonders of Savannah!

I cannot express how perfect this Cottage was. The moment you arrived, and smelled the honeysuckle you were instantly lulled into a sense of pure relaxation. The Decoration within the cottage was wonderful. It was better than it was even described. We were all very hoppy about it. It is right near the beach, and not far from the Stingrays restaurant. I would highly recommend this location for all, and I am already trying to plan another trip.

From start to finish. my two month stay was the best rental experience I've had on Tybee. I am in my eighties and have been coming each winter since 2006. Mermaid Jan was very helpful guiding me thru the difficult process of choosing a rental through photos etc. and after settling in she and the housekeeping staff were fantastic in responding to my questions, concerns, and special needs. The layout of the house allowed me to have my privacy with bedroom, bathroom and large hang-out space with a TV, easy chair and a desk for my computer. My parade of guests used the bedroom across from the other bathroom and had their own hang-out space with a TV and computer desk. The lovely sunny dining room was common space and the kitchen was well equipped and well lit. Everything about this rental was welcoming to my small poodle who especially liked the fenced in back yard, where he happily ran in circles and sniffed every tree and bush each morning. My memories of this particular cottage are sweet and satisfying. It is a home that welcomes with comfort and peace.

This cute cottage was PERFECT for our weekend stay. It’s in an excellent location close to Butler Ave and a quick drive to just about anywhere on the island. The house is well maintained with an open layout featuring two living rooms and two screened in porches making it perfect for families. The grapefruit from the tree in the front yard are a delicious added bonus. Everywhere you look in this adorable house you’ll find personal mementos added by the owners that will make you feel so much at home you’ll never want to leave! Our family enjoyed our stay and we're sure you will too!
