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 with 24/7 customer service.

It all started in September of 1999. Chris and I met at a Braves game, in the Chophouse. We married in 2002, and lived very happily in Sandy Springs, Ga. We loved our home in Atlanta, and all that there was to do. The one thing it was missing though, was a beach! We both loved the beach, and camping, so decided to check out Tybee Island. We spent 4 nights here at the Rivers End Campground, and were hooked. We came back a few times over the next couple of years, always staying at our favorite little tent site. Each time we came, we fell more and more in love with Tybee, and finally purchased a home here in August of 2003. The next two years were spent very happily driving down from Atlanta every other weekend. In the summer of 2005 though, we realized that we just couldn’t wait until retirement to live here permanently. So, on a Pirate’s Fest weekend in October 2005, we made the big move, and have never looked back.
Life on Tybee was blissful: riding bikes to work, kayaking on the back river, partaking in all of the many fun events and festivals year round. What more could one possibly ask for? Well, apparently, my husband had one more thing he needed: a little “fixer-upper”. A computer programmer by trade, he’s always been handy around the house, and decided he wanted a bigger project. Well, of course, my answer was NO! (You can see who won that argument!) So, long story, sort of short, he found 1308 Miller Ave, and the rest is history. We spent the next 2 years, slaving away evenings and weekends, and spent most of our savings in the process. But, after all was said and done, I had to admit that it was a great decision!
Throughout the renovation process, we dreamed of the day our guests would come to Tybee and fall in love with it as we did. We wanted folks to be ‘blissfully’ happy here and make their own wonderful memories.
