    So loved this house, didn't want to leave the pool! Plenty of room for everyone, quiet and is very convenient to everything, but you don't even notice any traffic, etc. Perfect location! Hope to be back next year...

    Our overall stay was excellent. We did think that you could use a few more pots and pans in the kitchen. There was plenty of room for our crowd of 14 and we had a great time on Tybee Island. We hope to be back soon.

    • Manager Responded on 8/23/2017

      Thank you for the nice words! We love 'excellent'. If you would like to let us know any suggestions on what types of pots/pans, we're happy to get right on that. We like suggestions from excellent guests. :) ~ Jennifer & the Mermaids

    Simply put, our experience at Whispering Palms was outstanding. Every detail of the house was exceptional and the distance to the beach was perfect for our needs. You have done a wonderful job with the pool, garden areas and the interior of the home. We look forward to staying again! This was our first trip to Tybee Island and the Georgia coast and we could not have picked a better home or rental company to stay with.

    Robin H from Clayton, NC recommends this vacation rental

    The house was amazing!!! The pool was heated and was awesome for late-night swims. The back yard is so private it almost feels like you're miles away from the world. The house has so much character and is super cute. The kitchen is stocked very well. We walked to the beach a few times. Having the convenient store a block away was great. A liquor store was also within walking distance.

    You will LOVE this house!!!! It's great for a girls weekend. 13 of us slept comfortably.

    Jane D from Evans, GA recommends this vacation rental

    Whispering Palms was more than we expected!! The outdoor living spaces alone were amazing! We had two families staying together and this house had more than enough space to accommodate us. Everything was clean and in good working condition when we arrived. The location was perfect for our group--short walk to the beach, restaurants and shops. It DOES get busy with all of the public parking around, but it didn't affect our stay. The porches and yard/patios were awesome! We loved the pool/whirlpool (small pool with jets) and the kids took turns in the hammock! It is a three-story home, so lots of stairs to consider. We would definitely stay here again!

    a guest from Palm Coast, FL recommends this vacation rental

    Whispering Palms was absolutely perfect! Stayed during St. Patrick's Day holiday and the shuttle into Savannah was just a short walk a few blocks away. The house itself was magnificent - beautiful gardens out back and loved the heated pool/spa. Tybee Island is a perfectly laid back beach town - Can't say enough how perfect a fit this was for our family.

    Kathleen O from Savannah, GA recommends this vacation rental

    We had family in from Florida, Ohio & GA for an 88th birthday party and wedding. The property couldn't have been more perfect for our group. We had both chilly and warm weather so enjoyed the fire pit, hot tub/pool and sunning on the patio all in one weekend! The kitchen accommodates multiple prep/cooking people and has everything needed to prepare meals for a crowd. There are more than enough place settings, glasses, etc. The grill and oven/warmer made everything flow. It was also nice for some of us to be able to put kids to bed with grandparents in the house and walk to the bars! We biked to anything we couldn't walk to. Overall, an amazing weekend, thanks to the Mermaids!

    Whispering Palms provided great accommodations for 11 people. There's a place for everyone to gather and also have a private quiet place. The lounging pool was a great addition to an already great house. Parking was ample for six vehicles. The location was also prefect and within walking distance of the beach, the shops, and bars/restaurants. Hope to make this an annual event!

    a guest from Asheville , NC recommends this vacation rental

    The house is large and perfect for a large family beach vacation. Being an older home and a popular rental, there were a couple of minor issues with the property's condition, but everything was quickly addressed by Mermaid Cottages, whom were very nice and helpful to deal with throughout the entire stay. They were very quick in getting back to us with answers or maintenance to our requests and easy to work with. The house itself is well appointed for a beach vacation and the backyard is incredible.
