Welcome to On-A-Whim! Located on Meddin Lane near the Tybee Lighthouse, this cottage is truly a historic Tybee cottage and a real step back in time!

This cottage was built for non-commissioned officers stationed at Ft. Screven in 1910. It is a 940 square foot cozy, sweet, nostalgic cottage that makes great use of the space to comfortably sleep six!

Brimming with vintage décor, it is located down lane with shade from trees planted many years ago! It is very close to the beach and features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and an outdoor shower with hot and cold water! Walk to the Lighthouse or the beach and then have lunch nearby!

This cottage sleeps 6 with a master bedroom with queen bed and private bath, a 2nd bedroom with a double bed and a 3rd bedroom with 2 twin beds. There is a second bathroom and a fully-equipped kitchen (no dishwasher) as well as a washer/dryer. Beautiful screened porch with porch swing and seating to relax and enjoy your Mermaid Morning Bliss coffee (MMM Bliss!) or an evening cocktail! Outdoor shower to enjoy! Great for washing away the beach sand and salt before heading inside!

On-A-Whim is very near our other Mermaid Cottages' properties - Enlisted Men's Mess Hall and Screened Inn duplex so it would be a great option if you have a group that wants to stay close by each other!

On-A-Whim was showcased during the 2017 Tybee Tour of Homes! Come and enjoy this very adorable vintage cottage! Get your reservations in now for a Winter/Spring stay! We hope to see you soon!.

    Ellen L from Saint Paul, MN recommends this vacation rental

    We, unfortunately, had nearly all 4 days with cool weather and rain, so will try to ignore that for the review since it’s out of the property’s control. We truly enjoyed Tybee Island and this little cottage’s proximity to the beach is great! It has a nice, simple floor plan with three small, but very functional, bedrooms and two bathrooms (hooray!) and everything was clearly well cared for and clean. Check in and check out process were super easy. Everything worked (laundry, showers, appliances, etc), including AC which we didn’t need. The the outdoor shower is nice, considering all the beach sand. The screened-in back porch was a family favorite. The owner clearly cares for her property as it’s all very quaint and personal. We do, however, agree with some previous reviews that there is a lot of “stuff” everywhere, which makes sense when you learn this was the owner’s home, not simply her vacation destination. We have young children (5 & 7) and were a bit nervous about so many breakables and historical items.

    The location, on the northeast side of the island, is actually great for those that don’t like crazy busy. The walk to the beach is short and exploring in the area of the lighthouse and old fort is easy. We appreciated that we could walk to so much of what we did. The public restrooms by the beach are very clean, which was a pleasant surprise. It is easy to get on/off the island and simple to do Savannah for day trips or venture to the rest of Tybee for food/fun. Owner and rental company leave behind brochures and maps and we recommend you read through the guest book for other ideas.

    The rental/management company tells you to bring your own of everything beach related, but the owner does have beach towels, boogie boards and beach chairs available (nice surprise). There were no beach/sand toys, though, which we think would be a nice add to the property for those who travel long distances.

      Thank you for the nice review. Cold weather or not, we're glad you found awesome things to do on Tybee and in Savannah! We will definitely pass along the word to the owner about the toys and tchotchkes. Come stay with us again! ~ Jennifer & the Mermaids

      Well now you have to tell us what your favorite room was. The cowboy room? The angel room? Screened porch? Outdoor shower? I love them all, can't decide so maybe you can help me out. ;) ~ Jennifer & the Mermaids

    Juliet S from Arlington Heights, IL recommends this vacation rental

    This cottage was charming and quaint. It was quite clean and had everything we needed, and was just as it was described. Having two baths was a real plus. It was in a great location--very quiet and just a short walk to the is also a very short walking distance to the historic lighthouse and museum, plus a fun beachside restaurant. There is a small grocery in town with the necessities--as well as a few little shops and coffee places.

      Thanks for the nice words! We love it when guests who have enjoyed the cottage let other guests know how great it (OK, and us) are. ;) Come back and stay again soon! ~ Jennifer & the Mermaids

    Johnny K from Murphy, NC recommends this vacation rental

    I was completely mesmerized by the fact that the house was truly a vintage home, decorated with memorabilia from the past that will give you a history lesson from the living room alone. My wife and I meet the owner and instantly made a new friend. Ms.J is an encyclopedia of the history of Tybee and Fort Screven. She gave us a tour of the island which was not part of the rental package but was a wonderful bonus. She also knows the best places to eat and local "things to do". The house was clean and maintained. I personally recommend a stay at On A Whim and hopefully will return.
