Welcome to Jensen Cottage! Jensen Cottage is a wonderful, historic beach cottage built in 1920 for Mr. and Mrs. Jensen when they were married. She was a nurse at the nursing home from what we understand and shared her life here with her new husband. The current owner is only the 2nd owner, so it is a house filled with lots of memories and love! Charm everywhere you look with a private screened porch where you can sit and read or relax with Mermaid Morning Bliss coffee or evening cocktails. Bird watching and outdoor grilling are great ways to enjoy Jensen Cottage as well! Wonderful, large yard with quaint white picket fence and yard décor and flowers everywhere! The cottage is decorated with vintage and antique treasures. Complimentary high speed internet and WiFi as well as flat screen TVs! A truly unique and cozy cottage perfect for spending lazy days at the beach! The quiet, North End neighborhoods are perfect for long walks, exploring with your pets or cycling with nature. Complimentary off-street parking for 2 cars.
Mermaid Cottages is proud to sponsor a guide/service dog puppy each year (we have sponsored 7 dogs!) These service dogs give the invaluable gift of more productive, more independent lives to their owners. Our pet-friendly homes feature complimentary Beach Bum Dog Biscuits for your furry friend’s enjoyment! These wonderful treats are organic, peanut-butter based and made especially for us.
We support Sea Turtles in Georgia and around the world. The Tybee Sea Turtle Project has been working very hard to increase the number of loggerhead sea turtle nests. 2012 was a record-breaking year in large part because of our successful 'Lights Out For Sea Turtles' education we've helped sponsor. All our homes feature a starter supply of Mermaid Morning Bliss coffee which supports the sea turtle projects. This coffee is 100% organic Columbian craft-brewed coffee; again, created just for us!
NO SURPRISES HERE! Our cottage is professionally cleaned and managed by one of the top management companies on Tybee Island and offers 24/7 customer service.

Although it was a typical February weekend,windy, on again off again sprinkles and cold, we enjoyed our stay in Jensen cottage. It was well appointed and charming. I especially appreciated the deep claw foot tub for soaking away the chill and catching up on my reading. The Mermaid Cottage staff seemed to anticipate our needs and it is reassuring to know there is a 24/7 person on call just in case.
