About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 7

305 Jones Ave., Tybee Island, GA, 31328

Charming beach cottage located on Jones Avenue!

3 bedroom, 1.5 baths. Great new and private outdoor shower with hot and cold water! Sleeps 7. 1940's cottage with lots of vintage charm! 1 King bed, 1 queen bed, 1 double bed and a twin (double & twin are configured as bunk beds!) Perfect for a family with kids! Handicap-friendly with wheelchair ramp. Bright, cheerful and newly-renovated and just 3 blocks from the beach!

Livin' the Dream is a one-story bungalow with a very spacious deck; deck offers lots of seating for enjoying cocktails in the evening or Mermaid Morning Bliss Coffee in the morning! 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 throughout 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. Blues Away Cottage, Mimosa Cottage and Maddie’s on Jones also nearby. Livin' the Dream is located directly across Jones Avenue from Memorial Park and the Tybee YMCA. 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! All located right across Jones Avenue from Livin' the Dream! 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.

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 :)

Reviewer Comments:

The cottage is great and we enjoyed our stay here. Beds slept great and we have stayed at other places not Mermaid Cottages where the beds have been uncomfortable.The cottage was clean when we arrived. The deck/patio is a great outdoor space and the charcoal grill was utilized during our stay. We hope to be back next year at Livin the Dream. We made some great family memories.

We loved the house! It was spacious and the outdoor area was a great place to hangout. The location was perfect; it is walking distance to a few beach access points so it was very convenient.

This home was perfect for us. 5 adults and 1 baby stayed here. The house easily accommodated all of us. We also had family that was staying in Savannah and often had up to 10 adults for dinner. The outdoor and indoor seating accommodated us for all of our social interactions. The location was ideal, an easy 3 block walk to the beach.

Our rental experience was nothing less than perfect! The house was in amazing condition. Me and the girls said all weekend the pictures just don't do it justice! It was perfect for our girls weekend. Just a short walk to the beach, and the shuttle to Savannah. I want to give a big thanks to Jennifer for always calling and checking on us, and also giving us the best tips for our stay in the city! Not only was she kind, she was more helpful than anyone I spoke with the whole vacation. She went well above her duties to make sure our stay was perfect, not just at the home, but the experience as well. I would recommend this to anyone an everyone!

We had an awesome week at 305 Jones. We rented 401 Jones also and had all three of our children and their spouses with us for a mini reunion. They all wanted to visit "grandma's house" again. We spend days visiting Savannah and Tybee, eating at our old favorites. Nights were spend around the large table playing games and putting puzzles together. We had a blast.

Reviewer Comments:

We have stayed at Livin the Dream several times. It is always a great time for us.Tybee is a special place. It is relaxing and easy to get around. This time we did notice that the "starter items" seemed less than ever. Ther we fewer hand towels, no dish soap, and fewer trash bags. It may be that we just don't remember these not being provided... Two areas of concern this trip were a slowly draining sink in the 1/2 bath and the shower curtain being too short causing water to pool on the floor in the full bath. I have no doubt that we will be back,but hope these issues might be addressed.
