Flat screen TVs in the living room, king bedroom and queen bedroom. Dining table that seats 8 comfortably with fun, orange chairs and another cute, aqua table with pink & green chairs & separate bench. This table makes a great workstation/playstation for laptops or kids’ play. (It's a great space if kids need a separate place to dine.) Also makes a great area to spread out goodies and snacks for everyone to enjoy! Living area very spacious with beamed ceilings, large flatscreen TV, comfy sofa, ivory slipcovered chair and two great wicker side chairs separated by a darling aqua/cream striped table. Plenty of seating for all; very cheerful, beachy colors! Cottage has been decorated in tones of aqua/orange/pink/red/ivory and captivates with beachy bold color! This color palette is followed throughout the cottage and it is truly a gem.

Completely renovated/redecorated throughtout with fresh paint, new linens & great built-ins in the bedrooms with lots of counter and storage space! Lots of fun, beach & coastal pictures throughout lets you know you are “on vacation at the beach!” New tile flooring throughout. The bungalow has a very open, spacious layout and the bedrooms are also very spacious and inviting. The kitchen cabinets have been updated in a bright, beachy turquoise/aqua and kitchen is fully stocked including our very own Mermaid Morning Bliss Coffee! Washer and dryer located in the kitchen area. Full bath with shower in hall and half bath in the king bedroom.

Covered carport is great! Can park out of the weather. Entry door from carport opens directly into the kitchen area. There is plenty of parking area in the carport and driveway.

Livin' the Dream is directly across the street from other Mermaid Cottages (The Shrimp & Key Lime Parrot); great for families and large groups needing multiple cottages; very close and can walk back and forth between these 3 cottages.

Park features lots of picnic tables; great for group gatherings and multi-family gatherings. Also has a beach volleyball court, basketball courts, and an awesome playground!

Guestbook comments from the manager

I’m still unpacking from my stay at Livin’ the Dream where I just hosted a couple’s baby shower but stopped to post this review before Life gets going again and I forget! The cottage was perfect for the shower: spacious with plenty of seating and a fresh beach decor. And, wonderful Mermaid Carol made everything super easy-and that is a huge deal when your scheduling and planning from afar! Many many thanks :)

This cottage was perfect! It is decorated so cute & the beds are comfortable. Really, the best part was the attention by the mermaids. I was called before arrival & when our coffee pot didn't work, they were over in ten minutes The deck was a great place to relax. We also used the grill! Great location in the middle of Tybee. We could walk or bike everywhere ibcluding the beach & lighthouse. We had two kids, their parents & my older parents plus our dog

Reviewer Comments:

My husband and I decided to go to Tybee for what we called a mini honeymoon to relax and get away for a couple days. When we arrived at the house the place had not yet been cleaned. There were dirty towels in the bathroom and the sheets had not been washed or changed. We had to leave the house for 2 hours while they cleaned after being in the car for 5 hours. Not exactly how we imagined our first night. The ladies were very prompt at responding to the mistake but there were definitely things that were skimped over. There was still hair in the shower and the tile is in serious need of a scrubbing. Overall, the weather was awful but we enjoyed visiting Savannah with the pup and relaxing at the house. We just wish that it had been properly cleaned. Next time we plan to stay in Savannah.

Loved this was a bright spot in our rainy and cold weekend at Tybee! The reservation process was easy and rapid. Questions were answered by the "mermaids" promptly, Loved the turquoise and pink and green colors everywhere. The candles on timer made a lovely evening atmosphere. The cottage was well-equipped, including a highchair and fun toys for kids. Be aware that there is no bathtub which we found to be a bit of a problem with 2 little kids. The location is an easy walk from the beach and just across the street from a great playground!

It was exactly what we wanted. Lots of space, close to the beach. Quiet. The outdoor shower was awesome and very useful. And there were lots of friendly dog amenities so we will be bringing our pet next time. The whole experience with Mermaid Cottages was very pleasant and we will be using them again.
