    The house was clean and comfortable. Perfect for dogs as the floors are all tile. It was an unusually hot week for May, and the AC worked perfectly. Beautiful view of the creek and salt marsh. The one thing that would make this a perfect rental would be a screened porch with a view of the marsh, perhaps at the side door. A major expense I know. But over all, very nice, and very quiet.

    DeAnn J from Conyers, Ga recommends this vacation rental

    Upon Arrival we immediately smelled the fantastic Confederate Jasmine blooming. The little cottage was well stocked and clean, a little residual sand on the floor but it is on the island so you come to expect that in my opinion. I was very impressed buy the fact that we never ran out of hot water! The view off of the marsh was beautiful and if a dock could be added one day that would be awesome even with the bugs! I am so glad I was finally able to stay in a Mermaid Cottage and I cant wait to come back and stay in another one there are so many to choose from its hard to pick a favorite!

    The Crabby Pirate was spotless and in great condition. The location is perfect for us as it is a quiet street and the fenced yard is great for our dog. It is roomy and the bath and 1/2 is nice when our family members visit. A very comfortable and cozy cottage. The Mermaids do a wonderful job and took care of one minor problem (dead battery in smoke alarm)immediately. We would most certainly recommend this cottage to a friend or relative.

    a guest from Decatur, Georgia recommends this vacation rental

    My two sisters and I loved the vintage charm of the cottage and the lovely view of the marsh. There was a lot of construction going on as neighbors up and down Lewis Avenue recover from the recent storm. All construction crews were very respectful and conscious of not hammering too early or too late. Two small suggestions for making future guests happy and comfortable: 1. There are some gaping holes in the fencing in the backyard that made it impossible to let our little dog run around freely. And 2: There were a couple of rainy days during our weeklong stay, and it would have been great to have a slightly bigger TV (with a functioning stand) and at least basic movie channels. Both are relatively inexpensive fixes that would have a big impact. Overall, the cottage didn't seem quite as immaculate and well-maintained as other Mermaid properties I've seen. But we still had a great week!

    The cottage was perfect for three little ones with my daughter and helper. it was great, because with my daughter being Kosher Diane the owner provided a new microwave and my daughter was able to handle meals etc. They were there to greet us and help us with luggage etc as well as answer questions... Really wonderful people. Will definitely return.

    We have never been to Tybee Island and did not know much about the Island. There were 6 of us (4 adults & 2 children.). The place was good for us. We could have used more room but we didn't spend a lot of time there. It was very hot and humid so we didn't use the yard much at all. The biggest disappointment was too few restaurants and how hard or long it took to get in one. The beaches are great! A cute place and it had everything we needed. Mermaid cottages made it easy for us. Thank you

The cottage was spacious enough for the 4 of us and was clean and inviting. You can never go wrong staying at a Mermaid Cottage!

    We love Tybee Island, so we were excited to head back there for a four-night stay for Memorial Day weekend. We brought our two dogs, and every thing about Crabby Pirate was perfect -- size, location, and cleanliness. Even though it rained for most of Sunday from the edges of a tropical storm, we were able to enjoy our stay. The beach was only a 15 minute walk, and we also walked to Bowie's seafood for local shrimp to grill. The dogs loved the fenced in yard, and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting and enjoying the salt marshes behind the house. We would definitely stay here again.

    Family of 5 plus weiner doggie - Loved everything about this cottage. Cute, clean, comfortable. Rained one afternoon, so we used the Pictionary game in the closet. What a blast! Great people to work with, came immediately for a minor problem with bath faucet. The 10 min walk to the beach is fine unless you are carrying stuff - then it is 10 min too long. Cannot wait to return one day and maybe try some of your other cottages. Great Job and thanks for a marvelous vacation.

    If you like "comfy and cozy" then this locations would definitely fit your needs as I love comfy and cozy. I brought my dog; my parents brought their dog and they definitely enjoyed the freedom of the spacious backyard which was nice. The A/C unit is a little loud but not too bad and the guest bathroom could have used a little more cleaning which was an easy fix. Other than that, we all really enjoyed ourselves and my parents especially since it was their 30th Anniversary! The property management team was extremely friendly and quite generous to us and we were so thankful. I'd recommend this location to a small group of friends or even a small couples retreat! I'll be back here again soon!

    My family had a good time over the 4th at Crabby Pirate. My fiancé Jim was bitten by a wasp while trying to get the key out of the lockbox. We called Mermaids and they promptly had a guy come out and spray the wasps. We also had water dripping onto our food on the top shelf of the refrigerator the first morning. Again called and Linda made several phone calls over the weekend trying to make sure everything was alright. Washed a lot of dishes over the weekend. Really missed my dishwasher and garbage disposal. Overall, the cottage was a comfortable, pleasant home for my family.

      thank you so much, wasps have been a real problem this year and we're trying very hard to find products that rid the homes of wasps, but still don't affect the environment with toxins.

    After taking a two month road trip across the US I can honestly say our accommodation at Crabby Cottage was some of the best we have encountered. A delightful cottage, well cared for and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. We loved the vintage feel of the
    house and it's decor but still it had all our home comforts. My only small suggestion would be the addition of a dishwasher-but then I really hate washing up! Apart from that, I thought Crabby was almost perfect.

    My family and I enjoy this cottage so much we have stayed here for the last three years. We have enough room for three teenagers to enjoy. The place is always clean and well stocked for our stay. We enjoyed the fact that we were within walking distance of the beach and lots of the shops. We would love to try another of the cottages next year or maybe we will be back in this one again!

    We had such a great experience at the crabby pirate. The fenced in yard was perfect for my 1.5 year old twins and 3 yr old daughter. A member of the mermaid team even stopped by to check on us and see if we needed anything. That's was so sweet. And thanks for recommending tims for cribs... so great for the little ones to have cribs away from home. Thanks so much for everything. Plan on coming back next year and getting bigger placed for some extened family to come too!!!!

    Kim S from Smyrna, Georgia recommends this vacation rental

    This was our first experience staying in a marsh view cottage. I liked that the traffic was less and it was more quiet on this side of the island, and the sunset view is also a plus. The only downside is that I wished the outside sitting/chilling area was a little more inviting. There was a table, chairs and umbrella, but compared to other Mermaid Cottages this one needs a little more "cutification" and coziness.

    The cottage inside was great and had all the necessities. This trip was clouded by the very recent loss of our 16 year old chocolate lab, Timber. She was going to join us on this trip, but unfortunately she could not. When I walked into the cottage it was lovely to see the picture of a chocolate lab like dog looking out onto the ocean. It felt like she was there with us in spirit. We love how Mermaid cottages does a lovely job of offering cottages that are pet friendly. Timber loved the special treats.

    This time we rented bikes and will be making it a habit. The location of the Crabby Pirate is convenient and it was very easy to ride to the shops, beach, and restaurants. If you like to find unique items, be sure to checkout the artist market. We had a great sunset dinner at Coco's, explored a few historical sites in Savannah, took a sunset dolphin tour, and relaxed on the beach.

We truly appreciate our guests' feedback as it is what allows us to continue to improve and continue offering our guests the very best beach vacation experiences possible! We sympathize with you; we know very well the sadness and heartbreak that losing a beloved pet brings; we are glad that you felt Timber was a part of this trip in spirit! We look forward to seeing you again very soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island he Mermaids

    My 28 year old daughter, grandkids ages 5,4,3 and myself rented the Crabby Pirate cabin for almost one full week. We were delighted! The cabin was extremely roomy with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Everything we needed was there, including coffee! Our 1st day there we had a bar-b-que in the yard after spending hours at the beach (only minutes down the road). The location was perfect, we were close to the beach but also close to the exit off the Island as well. We spent a lot of time in Savannah and it was just a short drive away. I would definitely come back to this cabin, or any of the Mermaid Cabins again.

    The last day the AC quit at the Crabby Pirate quickly became unbearable pushing 90 degrees inside. Mermaid came to our rescue & quickly relocated us to a nearby cottage, the Shrimp. We spent our last night in comfort ( including a patio hammock) & were given ample time to check out of both locations the next morning. A slight inconvenience, but considering the extreme July heat & the unexpected circumstance, we were very pleased with the outcome. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to relax on Tybee. Both properties had everything we needed & more. We plan to return asap! Thank you MC!

    The Cottage - Based on our experience and rental needs, this cottage was the perfect place for us and we highly recommend it. The cottage was very clean, well laid out floor plan, large fenced yard, plenty of parking, very pet friendly and very family and I were very comfortable there.
    Mermaid Cottages - This was our first time visiting Tybee Island so I decided to contact as many property owners/managers as possible and decided to work with the ones that wanted our business. I sent out some 14 e-mails requesting rental info/pricing based on our specific rental needs. Overall, I received 8 e-mail responses, 2 phone calls and 4 no-responses. Of the 8 e-mail responses I received, they either had nothing available based on our rental needs/price or they were up-selling me. Of the 2 phone calls I received, one did not meet our needs/price and the other was Jan with Mermaid Cottages (on a Sunday afternoon, within 2min after she received my e-mail). Simply put, working with Jan and the rest of the team at Mermaid Cottages was the best vacation rental experience that I have ever experienced! Starting with Jan....she listened to my rental needs and heard the details....The team at Mermaid Cottages is very organized, they provided prompt & detailed information, that was very important as we had never been to Tybee. My next stay(s) on Tybee Island will be with Jan and Mermaid Cottages.....I wish I could use Mermaid Cottages for all my vacation rental bookings at other locations.

    Lish H from Asheville, NC recommends this vacation rental

    I used to run my own vacation cottage in Asheville, NC. We were the # 1 booked cottage with our agency; I worked very hard to keep it that way. I mention this because I read some of the reviews and could not help thinking that things like sand burs are simply not preventable (It's the beach) and hand washing dishes was no problem for us. The price for this house is lower than most which is a huge advantage if you live on a budget, but I assure you that this house and the vacation it allowed us was very special. The cottage has THREE (!) very comfortable bedrooms. We arrived with my in-laws, their small dog, my 6-year-old, my husband and myself. We had no problem sharing the full bath (there is a 1/2 bath in the master) and the kitchen was wonderful. The house was immaculate- the kitchen, the bathrooms, every room was spotless. I LOVED waking up in the morning to have coffee overlooking the marsh and the sunsets are of equal beauty. This is a neighborhood composed of mostly full-time residents and it is extremely quiet. My family loves to ride bikes and we were able to roll out through the garden gate several times a day, hang a right and bicycle to the main beach in about 3 minutes. My daughter is six and still not a completely stable on a bicycle, but the street to the beach had few cars so were were able to get out and bicycle daily- which she says was her Favorite part of the vacation...along with walking the dog. I was able to cook a nice Holiday turkey in the ample, new kitchen, do laundry with the large washer and dryer, cook out on the grill, shop or dine easily with the close proximity of stores and restaurants. I have to say that for my hard earned money, this was one of the nicest week-long breaks from life we have ever taken. PS- The Mermaid Cottage staff are always only a phone call away: they clearly care about each and every Mermaid visitor. THANK YOU FOR A FABULOUS, PEACEFUL ESCAPE FROM LIFE. We look forward to coming back as soon as possible.

    We were very pleased with our island stay at the Crabby Pirate! Jan was very helpful and attentive with our last minute booking, being a Holiday also. She seemed to be eager to help us with any problem we might have during our stay there. We only wished we could have stayed longer but our country store at home needed us back. We will definitely look up Mermaid Rentals again soon!

    Had a wonderful time. The cottage is great very clean and cozy. The only issue I had was the sandspurs in the yard. I would have a hard time letting my kids and dog run around out there..

    • Manager Responded on 11/9/2011

      we are glad you had a wonderful time at Crabby Pirate. Thank you for the heads up on the sandspurs, they are one of those drawbacks we have to put up wiith being in the sandy beach communityl, but I have passed it on to our outdoor maintenance team to give it some special TLC!

    a guest from New Port Ritchey, FL recommends this vacation rental

    The cottage is adorable and extremely comfortable. The mermaids were exceptional, no matter what the problem, they were there with a quick solution. Only problem we encountered was that this time of year, the sand spurs are blooming and there were many in the yard. There's nothing anyone can do about that problem. We just kept "de-spurring" the dogs when they came in. But they absolutely loved running from the back yard to the front yard, chasing each other. I would highly recommend the Crabby Pirate and the services of the Tybee Island Mermaids. Will definately be returning for another wonderful vacation. Thank you ladies.

    It was so beautiful! We will forever be a customer of Mermaid Cottages and will recommend them to all of our friends!

    We come to Tybee every year - sometimes several times a year - and love it. A quiet family beach is just right for us. And always ALWAYS we stay in a Mermaid Cottage. They are gorgeous, the folks at Mermaid Cottages are super helpful, and we love them! We've stayed at the Crabby Pirate a few times, as well as others of their cottages, and are are clean, well-equipped, and cute! I love to come here to relax, write, and have some family fun! Thanks, Mermaid Cottages!

    Denise H from Union Grove, Alabama recommends this vacation rental

    During this trip to Savannah, my family and I decided to try a stay in a vacation rental on Tybee Island instead of a hotel and now we are hooked. The Crabby Pirate's size on the outside is very deceptive. It was much roomier inside than we imagined and we loved having an actual house with a kitchen, living room, and separate bedrooms instead of being cramped up in a small hotel room. The house was extremely clean and the location wasn't that bad. We walked to the beach and restaurants each day (about a 15 minute walk). I have been informed by my family that we will never stay in a hotel in Savannah again. I may try other vacation rentals in the future but only if they are extremely close to or actually located on the beach. Otherwise, my family would be very happy to stay at the Crabby Pirate for each visit from this point on.

    This house was great for the price. We only had a short time to stay, and would have liked something closer to the beach. A good 10 minute walk! Had to always pay for parking at the beach, but it was better than walking every time. House was clean except one bed was full of hair and sand. We had to wash the bedding to sleep in it. Great yard for the dogs! They loved being able to run in a fenced yard! The biscuits and ID tags were a great amenity. Overall, a nice place. Would stay with this company again, but would probably try to get a house closer to the beach.

    • Manager Responded on 7/8/2011

      thank you for your honest feedback! We have addressed the bedding problem with our housekeepers. Also - to all our guests- remeber- we offer 24/7 Guest Services and we will come and fix anything that is not 100% perfect for you. These numbers are all posted in both our cottage info book as well as the refrigerator. Thx you again for your feedback!

    Lynn S from Kingsport, TN recommends this vacation rental

    Overall, we had a great vacation stay at the Crabby Pirate. It could use some fresh paint pretty much throughout and some rocks in the driveway to keep guests from walking through a "little lake" in the parking area when it rains, but it was in a nice, quiet location where we were able to enjoy a very peaceful and relaxing stay. We loved being on the marsh because it brought back memories of "home" (New Orleans) where we lived our entire lives prior to Katrina. We had a bit of rain during our stay, but that didn't stop the fun. We spent some time in Savannah and, as always, highly recommend The Pirate's House buffet for lunch. It's really not that costly considering the food that is available, and the atmosphere is great. The Crab Shack on Tybee was the most wonderful experience and the atmosphere and food was amazing. Take it from our gang. That's coming from New Orleanians . . . and we know food!!! We brought our bikes and rode all around Tybee quite a bit. Our one good day at the beach was a little disappointing because the strong winds were causing us to get a bit "sand-blasted," but we certainly weren't hot! There's always a good way to look at things! We had a couple of problems that required intervention from the staff at Mermaid Cottages and they handled everything quickly and definitely with the guests' best interest in mind. They were wonderful. We'll definitely be considering another vacation back to Tybee and will use Mermaid Cottages again.

    Our stay at the Crabby Pirate was just what this Crabby Teacher needed to get revitalized over Spring Break. The cottage was just the right size and very clean. It was decorated beautifully and the management at Mermaid Cottages couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. We rented bikes from Tim's and they are the best. Thank you Mermaid Cottages and thank you Tybee for some fun in the sun! We'll be back!
