    Louise B from Owensboro, Kentucky does not recommend this vacation rental.

    Property location was great. The layout of the home was also very good. Did not quite meet my expectations as far as furnishings. Found some to be a little too rustic. Lighting was very poor. Chandeliers in dining and another were awful. They also put out very little light. I am short and could not see in the mirror in bathroom on main floor that is hung way too high. Mirror on dresser in bedroom unable to be used. A good mirror was hung ion wall in that same room but unable to see in it as no light. Kitchen was well equipped. The farm sink in kitchen has been broken and poorly repaired. This is something that was boasted about in the description of the cottage and the Southern Living article is displayed. I certainly would have thought it would have been replaced. It would be a good rental home for young people with small children. Your marker that says the home is on the historic registry appeared to have been made by a child. Fence surrounding property was overgrown and cought us each time we went through it. This was quite annoying when it rained. Sounds as though I am being awfully critical but just didn't meet what I expected even though we had a very good time. Would I recommend this property? Probably would to young people. Would I rent it again? Probably not.

    • Manager Responded on 8/7/2014

      Thank you for your review and honest feedback! We do want to let you know that the sink is being replaced this week. We value our guests' feedback as it is what allows us to continue to improve and continue to offer our guests the very best beach vacation experiences possible. We hope you will plan to return to Tybee Island and Mermaid Cottages very soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    Perry R from Louisville, Colorado recommends this vacation rental

    What an amazing experience. The home is beautiful and tactfully decorated. Plenty of space for 4 kids and 8 adults.

    Absolutely wonderful time. Wish we had another day!

    For such an old house, the AC is surprisingly strong and kept the entire house cool the whole trip.

    The one drawback to the property is it was a little further from the beach than we thought it would be. Doesn't matter much though: just a 5 minute drive and you're there.

    Catherine P from Cordova, TN recommends this vacation rental

    We spent a wonderful week in small, quiet beach town - the cottage is in perfect location - walking distance to beach and sunsets on back river from the front porch- enough room for family - clean and in great shape. I would like to say that I would like to see a microwave in the kitchen the next time we stay - with a large kitchen to cook in and with all the room it would be nice to be able to reheat leftovers after a long day at the beach - otherwise a perfect paradise! Thank you to the amazing Mermaids once again for another memorable week in our favorite little beach town!!

    • Manager Responded on 6/10/2014

      Thank you so much for your review and recommendation for Dutton Waller Cottage! We are delighted that you had such a memorable, wonderful week in your favorite little beach town!! A perfect paradise....great praise for Dutton Waller! We will certainly pass along your suggestion regarding a microwave in the kitchen to the owner. We look forward to seeing you again soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    Karyn P from Wilmington, NC recommends this vacation rental

    We were surprised to see the amount of space in Dutton Waller. Not only was it well decorated, but space was well used and comfortable...though we had 8 people, we never felt like we were on top of each other. I really appreciate the owners letting us bring our dogs, especially since one has cancer and needs constant care. The only suggestion I would make would be to have a microwave in the kitchen.

    Gregg W from Orlando, Florida recommends this vacation rental

    A large group of friends came into town to ride our bicycles in the Savannah Bike Century ride. Included in our group were some non-riders. The cottage was perfect in regards to sleeping accommodations and lounging with friends. There is so much room. The weather was hot but the Front porch was always a draw in the mornings and evenings. It is not often that you can watch the stars in central Florida but at Tybee they seem to shine extra bright. I think only two people walked on sand the whole weekend because the cottage was the draw not the beach.

    • Manager Responded on 9/5/2013

      Well, we are so happy to hear that Dutton-Waller was such a perfect place for your group! Sounds like everyone enjoyed its charm! How interesting that it beat out the beach as the place everyone wanted to spend their time! That says a lot about this wonderful cottage! We hope you and your friends will plan a return visit soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    Kathy S from Asheville, NC recommends this vacation rental

    Actually our first rental was "Barefoot Bliss" which we adored. Alas, after incredible rainstorms we had to move and Mermaid Cottages did an AWESOME job of helping us, finding us a big rental and checked on us several times. I think this management company is just the best! I will certainly come back.....and the owners of Barefoot Bliss are the best too. They put their heart and soul into their property and into service.

    • Manager Responded on 8/23/2013

      Thank you for your wonderful review! We are so happy to hear how much you enjoyed your stay at both Barefoot Bliss and Dutton Waller! Thank you for your comments regarding our mermaids; our goal is world-class customer service right here on little Tybee Island and we appreciate you letting us know what a great experience you had! We are delighted that you are already planning to return; we look forward to seeing you again soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    Cynthia B from Savannah, GA recommends this vacation rental

    Wonderful home with a combination of a quaint traditional Tybee beach house AND modern comforts. Plenty of space for family and friends. If you are looking to be right on the main, congested beach, this is not the house for you. It's located across from the back river and a short walk to the back river beach - awesome spot for just beaching it or all kinds of water sports.

    • Manager Responded on 7/10/2013

      So happy that you enjoyed Dutton-Waller! Definitely plenty of space and yes, it's a great location to access the Back River Beach area! We hope you will plan another visit very soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    Our family enjoyed every aspect of our Mermaid Cottage and visit in Tybee Island. The cottage was so special, with delightful surprises and comforts in every room.

    This was our second year a Mermaid cottage. Dutton Waller was warm and inviting. Once we put a few lights out on the porch to have our traditional al fresco Thanksgiving, we were all set. Diane and her Thanksgiving Turkey elves took care of everything we needed. The concierge service is impeccable. I highly suggest you rent any of the Mermaid Cottages. I know we will be back again and I cannot wait.

    I love old houses, antiques (especially in the arrogantly shabby style), being at the beach and walking so this lovely getaway was perfect. The screened sleeping porch is where we all gathered for meals and conversation. All the old wicker, chandeliers and slipcovered pieces were lovely and certainly added to the charm of this old place as did the tree swing in the front yard. I would recommend this as an ideal place for a women's retreat/getaway!

    Caroline A from Newnan, GA recommends this vacation rental

    The cottage was full of art, cozy seating, and sufficient kitchen amenities. Our two nights were spent on a very comfortable bed, and it was extremely quiet: our slumber was heaven-sent. We were tempted to try the bed on the screened porch. We appreciated the recommendation that we reserve this spot, as it was so close to the kayak launch site. Wi-fi quality was just fine. As dog lovers, we enjoyed the pieces of canine oriented art. Overall, Mermaid held the key to a lovely mini vacation.

    Loved the Bellamy art in the house - ended up buying one of her pieces. Please update the doctor list - there is a new doctor on Tybee (J Williams) and I was sick and found him helpful. He doesn't take insurance though. Also, would really appreciate more direction regarding local places to eat other than AJ's.

    We had such a wonderful time on this trip, and the best part was this charming cottage, which felt like home from the moment we walked in. The front porch offers the best sunset view around! Why wait for a table at AJ's? And the charming screened back porch was perfect and private for long evenings spent talking. The staff was so helpful from the time of booking forward! They let us know they were there for anything we needed. Tybee Island is so charming, and the locals were more than welcoming at every turn. We'll definitely be back!

    Thanks so much Diane and Dave for a wonderful visit to Tybee. We had a great week of photography staying in the Dutton-Waller. The two of you could not have been more generous or helpful! We got some beautiful photos and will make sure we send you copies of QUILT magazines!

    Dutton-Waller is a wonderful cottage, very homey with great furniture/decoration from a bygone era. If you're looking for HD big Screen TVs and modern furniture this is not for you. The cottage was wonderful to stay in and discover....when we left it felt like we were leaving home not going home,that's how Dutton-Waller captivated us. Thank you Mermaid Cottages for helping us with this wonderful experience......we will come back "home".

    Carol B from Johns Island, SC recommends this vacation rental

    My husband and I along with his mother and sister stayed for (5) days at the Dutton-Waller cottage. We absolutely loved every minute of our stay. The view from the front porch was incredible. We all enjoyed sitting on the porch in the mornings and the evenings talking and having a cocktail. We will definitely be backed to Tybee and will be calling Mermaid Cottages because of their wonderful policy about our four-legged family members. You guys are terrific and the Cottage was gorgeous.

    My family and I had the amazing privilege of vacationing in Mermaid Cottage's Dutton-Waller Cottage during spring break. Staying at the cottage was like stepping into a page from Southern Living magazine--it was absolutely charming! From enjoying the view from the front porch to playing board games on the screened sleeping porch, my family enjoyed every minute. Even my never-stop, always on the go New Yorker mother slowed down enough to just sit and enjoy the Tybee vibe! The cottage is walking distance to popular Tybee restaurants and the beach. We can't wait to go back!

    From the porch swing to the sleeping porch to the charming homey was an ideal getaway for our family to relax and reconnect. Wish it was a longer stay.

    The cottage was totally charming. A perfect retreat for myself and my lab. (The property is pet friendly). Furnished in typical "shabby chic" style, it had been restored and updated while maintaining the true beach cottage feeling.

    The cottage is very charming! The porches were probably our favorite feature; when it wasn't raining we were on the porch! The property manager was very friendly and helpful.

    a guest from Crete, Greece recommends this vacation rental

    My young daughter and I spent a wonderful and memorable few weeks here. It's a perfect cottage in a perfect location, just minutes on foot from some of Tybee's quietest and prettiest beaches. Swim, sun-bathe, beach-comb, crab, fish or kyak, then head back home and cook up a meal you'll eat in the cosy dining-room or out on the spacious and private screened porch. This is sweet, simple 1930s island living but with modern comfort seemlessly woven in. Come evening, head to the Hunter House for dinner or hit an ice-cream parlour, then stroll along Tybee's vast pier (there may be dancing!) before heading back along the darkening sand-dunes. The cottage is an idyllic retreat for two couples or a family. It has two pretty bedrooms and a period bathroom, plus another bedroom and bathroom suitable for occasional use at yard level. As you Americans sometimes say, enjoy!

    Margaret F from Lockport, New York recommends this vacation rental

    We couldn't have been happier or more pleasantly surprized upon our arrival at the Dutton-Waller cottage at Tybee Island, Georgia. Everything was so lovely and well thought out for a pleasurable, relaxing stay. We loved having our dog with us, and she enjoyed the island breezes as well. Everyone back home is now well acquanted with Mermaid Cottages and Tybee Island as a destination, the vacation was really a highlight for us that year. Our family looks forward to another visit soon!

    Tammie H from Woodstock, GA recommends this vacation rental

    We travel with our dogs and we have had one very bad experience, but this was definitely quite the opposite. Diane, the property manager was more than helpful and really did everything she could to get us a last minute rental. She also lived in the home next door so if we needed anything we could just run over. The cottage was really adorable and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I am extremely picky about rentals because I feel that you work hard and when it's vacation time the home you're renting should be CLEAN, decorated nicely and well appointed. Well, this place hit the mark! We will be visiting again in June but we're staying in a different home, since we have a few more guests. Mermaid Cottages is a top-notch business and Diane is awesome! I would recommend any of the homes.
