Your picture-perfect Tybee Island vacation awaits at Blues Away Cottage!

This colorful circa 1955 charmer is a "Mermaid Row" classic -- made all the more delightful in Fall 2013 with designer Jane Coslick's redesign and renovation. Bright, beachy and filled with original folk art (ORIGINAL FOLK ART: Howard Finster, Woody Long, R. A. Miller) & special touches throughout, Blues Away lets you leave behind the everyday world and immerse yourself in the breezy joys of Tybee.

Welcoming you to your Island home are such creature comforts as central air-conditioning, spacious living area, two dining areas, well-equipped kitchen, 1½ bathrooms and washer & dryer, WiFi, and three bedrooms: one with a king and twin bed, a second bedroom with queen bed, and a third bedroom with two twin beds. Each room delights you with fun details and comfy furniture that keep you smiling.

Beyond the cheerful and inviting screened porch, choose from three outdoor sitting areas to gather, relax and savor the sea air -- including one with a turquoise chandelier that glistens from its overhead perch in a shady oak.

Location-wise, Blues Away truly “sits pretty” on the Island. Memorial Park, the Sundae Café and the Sugar Shack are each two blocks away, and the beach is as close as a pleasant 6 minute stroll or a 5-minute bike ride.

Come make your getaway a special one at Blues Away -- a Tybee treat in every sense of the word!

    Wonderful vacation. This was our third trip back to Tybee and first stay at Blues Away. It is such a beautifuly decorated house with plenty of room for seven adults. The Mermaid staff are always friendly and responsive. It is a short walk to the beach. Relaxing time was had by all.

    Jeannie V from Madison, GA recommends this vacation rental

    We have stayed at many other houses on Tybee, larger and smaller, but overall, I would say that we loved this house and would stay here again in the future. It was really quite big enough for at least 5. It is very close to the beach, only a one block walk, and (although you would not think this is that important) it was really nice that the gas station, the pharmacy, the ATM, and the liquor store were only a short block away as well. Unlike some of the other houses that we've stayed at, the beds were extremely comfortable as well. When I called to extend by one day, the rental company was very gracious, and offered me the extra day for free. Will definitely stay here again! Thank you Mermaid Cottages. We had a great trip!

    This was our first time to Tybee Island and Savannah. We had heard about the Mermaid cottages from a friend. What a darling cottage. The Mermaids were all so nice and professional. The cottage was spotless when we arrived. But, best of all was the cottage itself. The decorating was so fun and colorful. It was so comfortable and inviting. Most nights we just stayed in and enjoyed our little vacation home. Thank you for a wonderful week Mermaids!

    Stayed here for four nights for a girls' getaway with three longtime friends in July. Can't say enough about the house. It is cute, clean, and roomy. There are little details in every room that make it a fun place to stay. There were even cute dishes and glasses! It is not "upscale," but that's not what you come to Tybee for! It is beachy, homey, and comfortable. Loved the beds! We sat on the screened porch most evenings. We walked to the beach - it's very close! We also walked to two different restaurants that were only a couple of blocks away. The Mermaid Cottage ladies called a couple of times to make sure everything was going smoothly. We were totally satisfied with our experience here and highly recommend this adorable property!

We loved being so close to the beach & the layout couldn't have been more perfect. Also, you can't stay there & not become creatively inspired. Love, love, love this place!

    I have stayed in a Mermaid cottage twice and I have asked to look at others that were unoccupied at the time. The mermaids are wonderful and very accomodating. The cottages are always spotless and beautifully furnished. The overall experience of staying at a Mermaid Cottage on Tybee Island deserves a 10 star rating! It is better than owning your own because you get to experience a different one each time. I am looking forward to my next visit. I have recommended the Mermaids to everyone I know who is interested in a wonderful beach experience. Be sure to rent bicycles. I hope to retire next year and my dream is to spend every April and October in a Mermaid Cottage on Tybee Island.

    Some girls and I came in from different parts of the country for a "girls week retreat". None of us had been to the area. Blues Away Cottage was the perfect "home base" to come back to after visiting Savannah and of course Tybee Island. It is so comfortable and inviting. It has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. The beds are even comfortable! It also is in such a great location on the island. Just a short 4 minute walk to the beach! There was a day or two that we just hung around the cottage because it is so peaceful. I would definitely stay at this beautiful cottage again!

    My wife and I stayed at Blues Away for our honeymoon for a week. The cottage was very clean and had just about everything we needed. Everything worked fine. We were close to the beach which was perfect for us. Mermaid Cottages did contact us a few times before we arrived to make sure we had all the information we needed and that everything was ready for us. Overall it was well worth the money spent to stay here. We definitely plan on coming back again for another vacation.

    The cottage was absolutely amazing! We arrived to Tybee Island early and the staff was very accommodating, and allowed us to check in early. After the 23 hour car ride from New York, we were greeted by the cheerful and helpful housekeeper, Mrs. Kaye. She was also very accommodating. Everything about the house was great and welcoming! The beds, couches, and pillows were so comfortable! The beach was very clean. The weather was showed a week of thunderstorms, but the weathermen got it wrong! We were able to soak up the sun everyday! Thank you for a great stay!! We will surely be back again!

The house is decorated in a very fun manner, and is well stocked for cooking. Just a great place to stay. The bike route street, just one street away, provided a great way to get around the island on our rented bikes.

    Blues Away Cottage circa 1955 on Tybee Island took our hearts away! We stayed in this sweet little cottage right on Jones Ave June 7 - 14, 2015 and loved absolutely everything: the location, the decor, the bright & sunny colours, the tranquility and more. The cottage was fully equipped with everything a family needs for a week at the beach including a well-outfitted kitchen, ample room to spread out in three beautifully decorated bedrooms, or to gather together around the dining table for some amazing Low Country BBQ or game night.

    We especially enjoyed the screened in porch for reading, cocktail hour, or to just listen to the rain clearing away the late day humidity.

    The mermaids, Jan, Francis, and of course head mermaid, Diane, made sure we had everything we needed and checked in with us regularly to make sure we were enjoying the best of Tybee Island. This was our first trip to Tybee, but it definitely won't be our last!

We walked to the beach--only took minutes--- so didn't have to deal with parking issues.

    Our June trip to Tybee was wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed Blues Away cottage, which was comfortable and well-stocked. It even had a blender to make smoothies. It felt like home thanks to quiet location, the fenced in yard and plenty of outdoor seating. It is about a three block walk to the beach and the hose in the front yard allowed us to clean our feet when returning back each time. Thank you for helping us to enjoy a memorable family vacation!

    You couldn't possibly feel "blue" after stepping into the Blues Away Cottage. The happy colors, adorable furnishings and art, and gazillion windows made us smile every time we walked through the door. Hats off to Ms. Coslick for the décor! And, to the maintenance team who've kept everything sparkling clean. The kitchen was fully equipped and there were plenty of towels, washcloths, and anything else you could think of. For a little extra fun, you might consider renting a golf cart from Ed @ 912.226.9676. He was delightful and we had a blast riding around looking at other Mermaid Cottages. Can't wait for the next visit!

    Warm, inviting, captivating, charming. This cottage is all that and more! Our family of 5 (which includes 3 picky teen girls) fell in love at first sight with the Blues Away cottage. The kitchen has every convenience. Beds and furniture are so comfortable and cozy. Beautifully decorated this is the perfect beach house. We were so sad that we couldn't stay the whole week, and would love nothing more than to pay a return visit!

    We loved this house! It was clean, spacious and had all the things we needed to keep our three small children happy. The house has all the comforts of home including a stocked bathroom and kitchen. I have never seen a rental vacation house have so much consideration for their guests. Very close to an ice cream shop, grocery store and the beach. We have already started checking the availability for our next trip down.

    What can we say? This is a beautiful little (yet roomy) cottage that was perfect for our family of 6. The place was well supplied and exactly as advertised. We loved the location (only a few blocks from the beach) and appreciated how central it was on the Island. All communication with the folks at Mermaid Cottages was very professional & we honestly have no complaints about anything. We had a wonderful relaxing vacation and would do it again in a heart beat!

It is located in a quiet residential area amongst other cottages & homes. The cottage was so bright & clean (THANK YOU FRANCES KAYE & CREW)! The amenities that the cottage provided made our group feel very comfortable and "at home". There were no maintenance issues that needed immediate attention. The property owner was very pleasant and provided an immediate response when a question arose. I would definitely recommend Blues Away Cottage to a friend or relative and hope to return one day!

    You can only be happy and at peace when you stay at blues away cottage. My family loved this place and our stay on tybee here. The home is a wonderful space - from all the pretty little beach and vintage details to the outdoor shower and outdoor seating areas. Loved the screened in porch at night! I gave a 4 on cleanliness because we noticed the floors needed mopping after arrival. The mermaid team took care of it right away. We've stayed at mermaid cottages before and I will be back and continue to recommend to everyone.

    My daughter and I celebrated Mothers' Day at Blues Away cottage and had a spectacular time. Even the weather cooperated nicely! We were very happy with the cottage. It was nicely appointed and had everything we needed! It was very clean too. Only two things could be improved: The queen bed I slept in in the back bedroom had an extremely squeaky mattress/box spring, and the bed itself wasn't that comfortable. I would suggest replacing it with new. And the grout in the main bathroom looks like it could use cleaning and regrouting, a simple fix. Just looked kind of dingy. Overall, the cottage and our stay was wonderful and we plan to come back to Tybee again for another visit. We might try one of the other cottages, just for a change. They are all so cute!

    We welcomed several family members from Texas to Tybee for the weekend for my mother's 70th birthday. The Blues Away Cottage accommodated all six of us comfortably, and we all loved the bright, beach-colored decor.

    We shared family meals at the dining table, sat beneath the trees and drank wine and talked, got to know some of the neighbors, and slept like babies in the comfortable beds.

    The only thing that would have made it better would have been to be located right on the beach - but we were only a short drive to the sand, so that didn't really matter.

    Management was quick to respond to our needs and friendly with follow-up. We've talked now about making this an annual retreat.

It was a short walk to the beach and some local restaurants. The house was equipped with everything we needed.

    The Flip Flop cottage has a prefect beach feel. The outside is eye-catching, with beautiful seafoam green and bright colors. Everything from the outside to the inside is decorated with a truly unique touch. We found it very interesting that the cottage is part of the cottage preservation program. The walk to the beach is not very far, but a little inconvenient if you have a lot to carry. Tybee is prefect, and the Flip Flop Cottage just adds to the magic of the little island. The shower inside is slick on the bottom. Maybe the mermaids can do something about that so the older guests will not have to worry about slipping. Stay here!!

    Enjoyed our stay. Cute & bright Cottage. we had more than enough room for our family of four. Only wished that it had been available for longer. We would have stayed! The Mermaid cottages staff were wonderful to work with. Everyone was happy, professional and easy to work with. They made the whole process easy. We'll definitely try to rent with them on our next visit!

    John S from Detroit, MI recommends this vacation rental

    It was something that I had never experienced before. The people were excellent, their service was beyond approach; especially when asked for assistance with handicapped capabilities. Also, I would like to recommend night lights in each cottage. A couple of the rooms were pitch black at night. Other than the issue with the lighting, I have no complaints regarding my visit to Tybee Island. Everyone in our group was very satisfied with our vacation. We plan on returning next year, if that is okay with you guys!! On a scale of 1 to 10, I give Mermaid Cottages/Flip Flop cottage a 10! I would also like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for a happy, happy, happy vacation!

    John Spillman and Group

    P.S. If possible, would you please send informational brochures/price lists for tour guides, etc for when we book in the future. That would greatly assist in planning our next vacation! Once again, my group and I would like to say 'Thank You' for a job well done and giving us a lovely vacation! Give your staff a pat on the back!

    I received a call on our way down to the beach saying that the oven in our original property was broken and was given the options to either wait a day for a new oven to be installed or stay in another property. We chose the latter and were very happy. As always, the cottage was very clean and comfortable. I only gave 4 out of 5 stars for location because Jones is a pretty busy street. Other than that, everything was perfect!

    I very much enjoyed my week's stay at the Flip Flop Cottage. It is conveniently located at the northern end of Tybee and within walking distance to the beach, a playground, a convenience store, pharmacy and several restaurants. I also walked to the lighthouse and once to the southern end of the island. The cottage is set a little away from the street and I found it peaceful. There is a fenced backyard which was safe and convenient for my two dogs. I would definitely recommend this cottage.

      Hi Marianne! Thank you for taking the time to complete our survey, and for your comments. Flip Flop Cottage is in a perfect location - close to everything, very peaceful and terrific for families with 4-legged friends. We hope to see you back with us on Tybee very soon.

    A couple of friends and I were in town for the Critz Run in early February and we had a great time. The house was super clean, had so much space and was conveniently located to a lot of stuff. It's sort of residential so it's not the place to stay in you are trying to stay in the middle of everything, but it was perfect for us. Overall, we had a great time and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The folks at Mermaid were excellent, courteous and so professional!

    Kathleen B from Winston-Salem, NC recommends this vacation rental

    Flip Flop cottage was adorable. Loved the location close to the beach, but Jones Ave. is a busy street. The only negative about the property was that the outdoor shower was far away from any door and seemed like it was in the woods, with pine needles everywhere and not very hospitable. My kids saw a snake and refused to shower anywhere but inside. Otherwise it was a fun stay. I'd choose other Mermaid cottages, just not this one.

    • Manager Responded on 9/28/2011

      Thank you so much for the feedback on the outdoor shower and I have forwarded this to our housekeeping manager. Because it is the secondary route from one end to the other end of the island, Jones Ave can be busy at times and the city has taken steps to slow it down by reducing the speed limit to 20mph and placing stop signs at some of the busier intersections. But the location also gives the advantage of the proximity to the city park and playground with the tennis courts and beach vollyball across the street. On your next visit, please let us know about this visit and we can assist you with a cottage at the quieter end of the island. I'm glad you did enjoy the cottage and the beach and we hope we see you back soon.

    Flip Flop was just the right choice for a group of 5 teens and 2 adults! We had plenty of space and 3 min. walk to the Beach. Close to everything. We liked it because it was on the quite side and not too buggy. The only things that we would suggest is
    another trash can or two inside the cottage, and maybe a covered can out back. Also, the refrigerator needs a checking froze everything we put in there (didn't touch the dials)except the things in the door. But it was perfect for our needs. I know my family
    will be back very soon!

    wonderful about our stay there and we look forward to "coming home" again in future years. Thanks Mermaid Cottages for making our stay stress free and totally relaxing with 4 kids and two dogs.
