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.

This mid-century, all-electric home has been restored using the "reduce, reuse and recycle" 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 forward to sharing their cottage with others who need a peaceful retreat to rejuvenate and create Memories at the Beach with their family and friends.

No smoking ~ even on the porches, please!

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 Coastal Georgia

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:

We enjoyed our stay very much! This was the perfect place to stay for our family (includes kids) as well as the grandparents. It was a short and enjoyable walk to the beach. The kids enjoyed the fenced in back yard and the enclosed back porch (just bring mosquito spray). The two different sitting rooms also accommodated us well as one became the kids area to play and watch tv and the other for the grown ups. Another highlight for my daughter was being able to pick a lime from the yard to use for cooking! We are a Navy family and picked this house because of all the Navy flags, posters, and signs. Hope to stay here again! Thanks to the mermaid staff for setting us up with this place. The downloadable app is very easy to use, provides a lot of useful tips, and keeps all the info in one place.

Reviewer Comments:

My family enjoyed our stay at Memories At The Beach. We have stayed here several years and love it. The house works well for our family and it is convenient. It could use a little updating but in general is very nice. We love TYBEE ISLAND! The weather was a little hot (100 every day) but didn't keep anyone from the wonderful beach.

House is cute. Close to restaurants and beach. However, the Queen size bed in the back bedroom that has the day bed in it too, is horrible (the queen). It has a deep middle and you fall into it. Needs replaced desperately.

As usual, Memories was a comfortable, homey, place away from home. Love this cottage, which is why I stay often. Perk in April: fresh grapefruit for the picking - best ever! Thank Mermaids - you always do right by me!

Reviewer Comments:

This was our second trip to Tybee Island staying with Mermaid Cottages. The communication and availability of the property management team is fantastic. This was a great easy walk to the beach and some of our favorite restaurants. This is a sweet, older home, and it reminded me of visits to Grandma's house (if Grandma had lived three blocks from the beach).
