    My family from Ohio, GA, and FL rented The Shrimp for a weekend. The Shrimp was adorable and the pictures were accurate. The property was extremely clean and well maintained. We loved The Shrimp and look forward to coming back to Tybee Island and staying at a Mermaid Cottage.

    Kelly B from Pooler, GA recommends this vacation rental

    I am a Savannah area resident, and had 3 of my best girl friends coming to visit from Minnesota. I knew Tybee would be the perfect place to spend a long weekend vacation with the girls. I fell in love with The Shrimp as soon as I saw it. It was a fantastic cottage! So close to the beach, a big screened in porch- and my favorite was the outdoor shower. We loved all of the colorful details too. The cottage had everything we needed, and it really feels much larger than it looks in the photos. There was plenty of room for the 4 of us. The weather was hot and sunny, much time was spent at the beach, nights out dancing, and many great restaurants were explored. I know my friends will be back, and we are forever loyal Mermaids! Thank you Diane, and the rest of the Team for a phenomenal weekend!

    • Manager Responded on 9/4/2014

      Thanks so much Kelly! We are thrilled that you and your friends had such a memorable, fun girls' weekend at The Shrimp Cottage! Thank you, too, for the wonderful photos you shared with us!

    My sisters and I were guests at The Shrimp for one week and loved our stay. The Shrimp is clean and had everything we needed. Our blow dryer didn't work and a new one was delivered immediately. The Mermaids were helpful when I called to ask information about Tybee Island. We look forward to our next visit.

    Wonderful! This was one of the best prepared beach houses we have ever stayed in, and wonderfully kid friendly. Everything you might need for cooking, sleeping, grilling, playing, and cleaning. THey even provided a kitchen sponge.
    The layout of the cottage was great for a small family, and so nicely decorated, cheerful and clean. A few minutes to the beach. Easy to book, and management easy to work with. Planning to come again next year, or if not available at one of the other mermaid cottages.

    Cottage was very cute and convenient to the beach. Check in was super easy. Kitchen was stocked nicely for what we used it for. Beds were comfortable. We really enjoyed our visit! Although, I did wish there were a DVD player in the main room and we seemed to have seen many small spiders. This was not a main concern to us so we didn't report it.

    • Manager Responded on 5/16/2014

      Thank you for your review and recommendation for The Shrimp Cottage! We're delighted you enjoyed your stay! Thanks for the feedback and we will pass this information along for resolution regarding the spiders; we have regular pest control but we will double check to be sure things are taken care of....we always appreciate guests' feedback and we would have taken care of this issue during your stay if we had been aware. Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    From the moment we walked into "The Shrimp" my family with kids (11, 8, 3) adored it. My pre-teen daughter loved the colors, my middle son loved the location "cool to walk to everything" and my younger son we literally had to drag away kicking and screaming from his "borrowed house." In-spite of three days of rain and chillier than expected weather we still enjoyed beach combing, local restaurants and games and crafts at the cozy kitchen table. We all can't wait to come back (with some sunshine) next time!

    • Manager Responded on 4/29/2014

    My daughters and I would love to give more than 5 stars to all of the questions. The cottage was tastefully decorated with attention to small details. It felt more like a home than a rental property. The management company made the experience so enjoyable due to their professionalism. They made everything from reservations to check out easy. The cottage was well maintained and comfortable. It was very clean and located the perfect distance from the park and a short walk to the beach. We all agreed that we will return again soon.

    My best friends of 25+ years took a trip to celebrate turning forty, and we chose Tybee Island and The Shrimp as our destination. This cottage accommodated our needs quite nicely. The bike ride to the beach only took a minute, which was important to us. We were also able to easily ride to the other places that we needed to get to, as it is fairly close to much of the dining and shopping on the island. We loved the cottage's outdoor shower, and we all slept very well each night. The king-sized bed was one of the MOST comfortable I have ever slept in, and my traveling companions reported being comfortable in their beds too. We did not choose to do much meal preparation at the cottage, but could have easily. It looked like most everything we would need to do this was provided. There was a pretty raggedy wicker ottoman on the screened- in back porch that needed to be replaced, because it was falling apart (a very minor issue to us), but other than that the rest of the furniture out there and throughout the cottage was in good shape. The ottoman certainly didn't keep the porch from being a favorite spot, especially as we enjoyed our morning coffee. The hammock was a popular seating pick. Overall we were satisfied with the cleanliness of the cottage. We did not have any problems we needed to contact the management about while there, but all of my contact with Diane in planning this trip was very pleasant. She made the whole booking process very easy. The "girls" and I all agree that we would not hesitate to work with Mermaid Cottages in the future based on our satisfaction with The Shrimp and a very positive experience there. We were already in the process of looking for cottages that would accommodate our bigger families for a return trip before we ever finished this one! A big THANK YOU to the Mermaid Cottages team for helping make our girls' getaway a big success!

    My daughter and I went for a long weekend to stay at this cute cottage. It was so cozy and we felt very comfortable and right at home. I loved that you could ride all over the island and just a short car ride to downtown Savannah. I would definitely stay at the shrimp cottage again. We loved it!!

    Perfect for a family of 4. Stop researching now & book the Shrimp! You will not be disappointed! We stayed 4 nights @ the shrimp. Our kids are 2 & 5. We all loved it. The beds were so comfortable & the place is so clean. I can't say enough great things about it. The park is close with a great playground. It isn't close to the beach, but we knew that before we went. Great place, great vacation!

    When we first arrived at the Shrimp, we just loved the beachy feel to it. It was really cute, cozy and homey feeling.

    The Shrimp was in the perfect location for walks to the beach (rent an umbrella & beach chairs there). We had a great time swimming & the water temp was perfect in July. Never too crowded. We ate lunch & dinner out often, but breakfast and some dinners at the Shrimp were easy because the kitchen was well-stocked with all the pots, pans, dishes & necessary utensils. The washer & dryer saved us from having to pack so many clothes, and kept our beach towels clean and ready to go.

    We came from outside of Philadelphia for a family get away from it all. A couple and two children, ages 13 and 9. We knew nothing about Tybee Island. The Mermaids pointed us in all the right directions to rent bikes and things to see and we had a ball. The location of this house with kids is wonderful, feet from a park with basketball, tennis, things to climb. This is the best equiped rental we have seen. My daughter has asthma and allergies and this place was very clean. I had a lot of questions and the Mermaids were quick to answer. They treated us and our needs in the most professional manner! Tybee is wonderful. We loved it and the Shrimp made the vacation a real vacation. I loved not worrying about sheets and towels. We cooked more than half of our meals in comfort. The beds were unreal! So comfortable. Thanks Mermaids!

    Our family enjoyed our stay at The Shrimp even more than we expected! The cottage is darling - decorated perfectly for the beach! It was spotless and the furniture was all very comfortable. After long days on the beach we enjoyed the outdoor shower to clean up and relaxing in the hammock on the screened in porch. The kitchen was great - had everything we needed to prepare our meals.
    We also enjoyed the location of The Shrimp. It was close to the beach (walking distance) and very close to several great restaurants! Also, make sure to stop by Seaside Sisters to pick up some of the Mermaid Cottages' Morning Bliss coffee before you leave the Island!
    We will definitely be back to visit Tybee Island and to stay in a Mermaid Cottage (hopefully The Shrimp!) soon!

    We enjoyed everything about The Shrimp! We were able to walk outside to see the NYE fireworks without fighting the crowd on the beach. The cottage is close to eveything but blocks away from high-traffic areas. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking and doing laundry. Mermaid Coffee is excellent! And the outside shower was great for cleaning up after The Polar Plunge. The king bed in the master and the living room sofa were so comfortable that we wanted to bring them home with us. The only thing the Mermaids couldn't control was the chilly January weather our last two days on Tybee, but The Shrimp was still warm and cozy.

    Jeff H from Green Cove Springs, FL recommends this vacation rental

    I managed to stay at the Shrimp during a warm week in mid-December 2011. Winter is definitely the off-season in Tybee, but that also meant no lines and a beach practically all to myself.

    As for the Shrimp itself, after I couple of days, it felt enough like home that I forgot I didn't actually live there. The decor is bright and cheerful, the house was very clean and well-maintained, and the kitchen was equipped with all your standard utensils and appliances. Like I said, it felt like home or I was staying at a friend's house.

    Be prepared for some walking. The house is three blocks from the beach, but that cuts down on noise and traffic. It's also adjacent to the city park, if you need more activity space than the cottage's backyard. I'd suggest doing most of your grocery shopping beforehand--the local shops carry the basics, but the closest Walmart and Publix are about 10 miles away. And remember that paid parking is standard in Tybee; I found it easier to just walk a few extra blocks than deal with the pay-and-display meters and maybe limited parking spaces during busy season.

    Overall, I had a great experience and would definitely recommend Tybee and Mermaid Cottages.

    From the moment I walked in the front door, I knew I was in for a good time. Colors galore...everywhere! I loved it. The cheerfulness of the decorating made up for a couple of cloudy, rainy days while I was there. The KS bed in the Master Bedroom was the most comfy ever, with soft and colorful linens. Great windows, easy to open and allow a fresh breeze in. The back porch with hammock was a place I spent loads of time in! The back yard is completely fenced with a fire pit and a private shower for washing yourself off after a day at the beach. The kitchen had everything I would ever need and I loved eating off a different beach-themed plate everyday! Polka dots, stripes, shrimps and lobster designs. Colorful Stemware made the champagne go down a little faster! I would never ask for more than what the Shrimp has to offer.

    I found the Mermaid Cottages staff extremely helpful in making an easy reservation and the website showed photos true to my experience. It was the perfect retreat I needed for a little getaway on Tybee Island. The cottage would be ideal for individuals, like me, families, friends getaways and so close to everything! They recommended Tim's Beach Gear who was so helpful in delivering a bike rental to the cottage and picking it up on my checkout day, it was a nice option instead of driving my rental car. The hammock in the enclosed porch was perfect as some of the days were foggy and damp, but I could still enjoy the porch and read in the hammock day or night. The bed was extremely comfortable and it was nice to have the option to play dvd's if I had chosen to bring any. Just really the perfect getaway for this exhausted mommy who needed a break in peace and quiet, time to walk on the beach and set my own schedule for a few days. I enjoyed the beach at high and low tide and felt very safe on the island. Thank You Mermaid Cottages for making this alternative to a hotel possible, it was exactly what I was looking for!! Will highly recommend to others and have plans to return with my family next time. THANK YOU!

    The cottage was fine. Tybee Island is one greedy townfor charging to park in every available space to shop or sightss.

    • Manager Responded on 11/7/2011

      I' glad you enjoyed The Shrimp. We agree at times it does seem overwhelming with the parking, however, please be aware Tybee has a very small year round residency of less than 3000 so in order to accomodate all of our wonderful visitors and keep our beaches in their best condition for them and offer the best possible services, we have to charge for parking. Most of which goes back to pay for the beach renournishment (which we get very very little Federal/State funds), life guards, etc. If you find you are coming to Tybee often you may look at purchasing an annual parking pass which I believe is only $100 and is good for parking as much as you want all over the island. Thank you for choosing Mermaid Cottages and we really hope you do not let the parking deter you from visiting us again.

    Mermaid Cottages made our vacation the BEST! The cottage was very clean & homey. We loved everything about it! We loved relaxing in the hammock at night! The Shrimp was in a perfect location too! 5 minute walk to the beach & park. We fell in LOVE with
    Tybee Island!!! Tybee is a wonderful, relaxing family island! We're already planning our next trip to Tybee...Thanks for all the awesome memories!:)

    We had an amazing time staying at The Shrimp. The house is adorable and we all loved the cute "beach touches!" And, that back porch! We spent most of our time out there enjoying the hammock and spending time together. We had one very minor issue with the bath tub and the Mermaid Cottage property manager had it fixed in less than hour. Amazing service and concern for our comfort. Thank you for a wonderful trip!

    This was our 3rd visit to the Shrimp and we always enjoy our stay. Love the hammock, outdoor shower, and just overall decor of this cute little cottage. So convenient to the beach, just love it. The only downfall of this trip was the fact was that the dryer was broken for the first 4 days so that was hugely inconvenient. But the Mermaid staff made sure to help us out and had laundry service for us. Other than that, great as always, definitely recommend it.

    What fun we had in this cottage. It gave us a warm, welcoming feeling as we pulled in the driveway and it took away stress and worry when we walked into it. We had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. We were 3 blocks from the beach and it was an easy walk first thing in the morning. What glorious sunrises! We plan on doing another family vacation and want to go back to the Shrimp when we do.

    The shrimp was such a charming little cottage. What a bright and cheerful place to walk into. It was clean and had everything we needed. It was located in a great location, just a short walk to the beach and some of the restaurants. we were so thrilled with the area that I called on Wednesday to see if we could stay Thursday night and Diane was great about accomodating that request. Would recommend and hope to get back there again.

    From the ease of booking online to just leaving the keys on the counter, the Shrimp was truly a getaway for our family. Clean and comfortable, our cottage was the perfect home base for a spring break trip to Georgia. The brochures and travel information in the cottage helped us find great meals and great things to see. We had an excellent stay and are looking forward to visiting the Shrimp again!

    The cottage was great. Of course being on the water is always better. We were there in the off season so the outdoor furniture was clean and ready for use, even though it was warm enough to be outside. My husband is a large man and always favors rentals with a man size recliner and a larger TV. But don't get me wrong, we had a great time and everyone was most accommodating.

    Great place to stay! It was like having our own little place at Tybee Island! We have a 7 year old and a 2 year old. It was perfect for our little family! We had the best of both worlds, the kids had the beach and I had Savannah! We would go to the beach during the day and Savannah at night! I cant think of anywhere else I would rather go on vacation other than Tybee Island!

    We love staying at the shrimp. Everytime we visit - we feel as if the house was created just for us. All the little touches - down to the sand buckets on the back porch. There are only a few things we noticed. The hammock hangs at an odd angle - should be placed length wise. The sofa is so very uncomfortable - no one wants to sit on it - and the wicker chairs are not comfortable either. Need a small table beside the main bathroom sink - to place curling iron/rollers/bath things. Thank you for making our visits perfect. We look forward to our visit in July - we'll be staying in the Lemon Drop Cottage this time. Thanks again. And BTW, Diane is marvelous! Pam

    The first stay was wonderful, we were told we need only bring our toiletries and our food and that the property was stocked with everything else. The first time this was true, and the lady that check on us told us if we needed anything or were out of anything, to call her, she was VERY helpful. The 2nd stay we never saw THAT lady. There was one roll of toilet paper and no garbage bags or beach towels (all things that were included the 1st year). When we called we were told "we start you off with one roll then you're on your own", and there were 2 beach towels in the entire cottage, so we had to share among 4 of us. The screened porch was not as clean, and the outdoor shower was not working the 2nd time. Had we known, it may not have mattered, but there was just a major difference in condition and attitude the 2nd year. I don't think with a hefty housekeeping fee that toilet paper and a few beach towels is too much to ask. Overall, the cottage is still cute and comfy, but the first year (2006) really built up our expectations and they weren't quite met the 2nd year (2007).

    My husband & I stayed here on our honeymoon last year. We were very satisfied with the cottage until the last night when cochroaches started showing up everywhere! We killed 5 or 6 before going to bed that night. We were honestly afraid to go to sleep there because we were so creeped out. We did think about going to a hotel but we knew we had already paid & it was late so we stayed. We had no problems prior to that. We were not slobs while there either. We thought about that but we knew we had kept the trash up & hadn't left food out & open. We weren't sure what to think! We loved the cottage until that point.
