    Catherine C from Decatur, GA recommends this vacation rental

    Specacular! Loved the location and my dog and I loved the yard - big enough for a beagle to explore and wander. We loved walking all over the area and looking out over the water from near the pier and the kayak launch, and lounging on the porch in the afternoons. Wouldn't change a thing - the house is beautiful and comfortable. Tybee is a very cute town, too. Hit some rough surf due to the storm off the coast - fun, but got tossed about even more than I did as a child! Lesson - wear a one-piece suit in rough surf!!

      We are so thrilled to hear what a terrific getaway you had at Blue Heron! We are happy to hear that it was the perfect cottage for you and your furry friend! We look forward to seeing you back again for another Tybee visit very soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    Blue Heron is a sweet little cottage and it was a wonderful place to spend our vacation. We found everything to be as it was described and we loved the huge shower in the master bedroom. We ate dinner on our first night at A.J.'s Dockside which was a short walk from Blue Heron. As always, we enjoyed our visit to Tybee Island and Blue Heron. We love staying in Mermaid Cottages and we're looking forward to our next vacation on Tybee Island.

    This was our 3rd stay in the Blue Heron (one of the stays, the cottage was still named the Lemon Drop. This home is extremely comfortable and relaxing for our family of four. We love the location and the yard and it's so convenient to the beach and restaurants. The large kitchen and great room provide room to spread out. We've stayed with Mermaid Cottages every year for 6 years and we plan to return every summer! I recommend Mermaid to everyone I know..amazing company and staff!! Love our mermaids!!

    a guest from Bowling Green, Kentucky recommends this vacation rental

    Tybee Island during the 4th of July week is amazing. From the Fireworks off the Pier to the Cannon firing demonstration at Ft. Pulaski. Blue Heron Cottage managed by Mermaid Cottages is awesome. Best shower in America guaranteed. We loved the location near the back side of South Beach away from all the night life yet only a 5 minute bike ride to the beach. Being able to walk to AJ's Dockside restaurant to eat and go kayaking was awesome also. Already planning our next vacaation.

    Robert S from Dekald, Il recommends this vacation rental

    My fiance and I stayed here for days leading up to our wedding with our two little dogs. We also stayed here after our wedding until we had to go home. We loved how much space we had within this home, and we loved how historical and the charming beauty this home brought to us. We can't thank Mermaid Cottages enough for allowing us to stay in such a beautiful home for our wedding. Our dog's and family loved this home as much as we did. Carol was a blast to work with, and Brandi our dog sitter was amazing with our little furbabies. I would say that there were many nights spent on the hammock, as well as the back screened in porch. We LOVED IT! We can't wait to come back on our future anniversaries in the next upcoming years! THANK YOU DIANE AND CAROL!!!

    Blue Heron is so much more than the pictures show. Upon arrival you feel at home, it is warm and welcoming. Very comfy beds, and towels so soft they are like velvet. Perfect lay out for us, and the dog friendly is very important to us traveling with a service dog.
    Easy walk to the beach-and if you have a dog with you-make sure to visit Alley 3, early in the morning. I will be back-thanks to all the Mermaids and the owners for such a great place to stay.

    I had such a wonderful experience at the Blue Heron!! I was obsessed with the decor and the amazing shower off the master. It was the perfect little house in the middle of the island but located close enough to the beach and the bar to walk. There wasn't a single thing I would change other than extending my stay for the rest of my life!

    It was hard to believe, but when I unlocked the door to the cottage it was even nicer than it looked in the pictures. The beds were comfy, the kitchen was well appointed-thanks for leaving a few spices and cooking oil.
    I had to take a tub bath and a shower both mornings because they were both lovely.
    We didn't because one of us was injured, but the cottage is walking distance to restaurants.
    There was a souffle dish, so of course we had spiche souffle for breakfast. Could use a cookie sheet, but enough other pans to improvise. Absolutely amazing. I plan to come back with my family.

    Lisa R from Cataula, GA recommends this vacation rental

    The Blue Heron cottage was just charming! The colors, décor, and provisions enhanced the experience. Nothing was lacking. The cottage was clean and well maintained. My husband and I were able to walk or ride our bikes everywhere we went, so the location is great. Thank you, owners, for sharing your place with others. Mermaid Cottages has, hands down, been the best and easiest rental agency we have ever worked with! We have rented many vacation homes in many places, and always have a very intimidating, tedious, list of rules and checkout procedures to follow. We are on edge before even arriving because of possible consequences that might apply if we accidently leave a smudge or God forbid, break something. My husband and I always go in and look for things that might need cleaning or repairing when we first arrive, afraid that they will think we did it. Rental companies certainly need rules, and Mermaid's agreement/contract/rules are written/worded in such a way that is positive; not harsh. Yes, there are requests, but not many. It seems that they truly want you to enjoy your vacation. It makes all the difference in relaxation while you are there. We had just a couple little things that needed repair while we were there, most likely due to the weather, and no questions were asked. The nice maintenance man was there in minutes, and not only took care of our little repair, but checked out other things while there, ensuring we were in good shape. We would definitely rent from Mermaid Cottages again. It was a pleasure dealing with them! Thank you, Mermaids! You should train other agencies!

    My family has made annual visits to Tybee for the past 5 years - and we'll keep coming back. There's something special and unique about "Tybee Time" that's refreshing for the soul. Diane and the Mermaids are a huge part of the overall experience - a pleasure to work with and nothing is left undone. Blue Heron is in a prime location near the back river with a short walk to your choice of beaches. the home is convenient and comfortable with a fenced in yard that is perfect for pets or children. We're already looking at the calendar for our next visit!!

    a guest from North Chesterfield, VA recommends this vacation rental

    Absolutely loved this place. If only it were a little closer to the beach...not a bad walk, but when you are carrying a lot of stuff and it's hot the walk can seem long. Only other issue was the two bedrooms are right next to each other. Every time one of the girls turned over in the bunk bed it would hit the wall. The headboard in the master is right next to the wall where the bunk is. Overall a great experience. I would stay here again and recommend to family & friends.

    Dana B from Charleston, IL recommends this vacation rental

    My husband and I agreed that this was THE BEST vacation we’ve ever been on. The Blue Heron was very clean and absolutely gorgeous. It’s huge, so we weren’t stepping on each other. Our two kids shared the second bedroom and my husband and I took the master bedroom with the heavenly shower! Once the kids tried the shower, though, it became everyone's shower! :) That's okay. It was worth sharing. The cottage is in the perfect place on the island. I worried about being near the river rather than the ocean, but really, it's close to both and the river was much more peaceful, less crowded, and the sea life seemed to be more abundant. We saw sting rays and dolphins and crabs and some fisherman we walked by kept catching baby sharks! Amazing. Plus, the river is just like the ocean, just not so vast, and the views were spectacular. We walked down to the fisherman's pier (VERY short walk) and then onto the beach for a walk around the southern tip of the island to the main pier on the ocean and back again, every morning and every evening. It was so peaceful and my mind literally emptied of all the worries of the world. The Blue Heron is just down the street from A.J.'s Dockside restaurant which was very good. We also enjoyed North Beach Bar & Grill and Huckapoo's (for pizza). One thing you have to be ready for is that everything is laid back. When they say shorts, a tee, and flip flops are all you need, they are not kidding! Most restaurants either serve you outdoors or in a screened in area. It's all about the outdoors here. After our morning walks on the beach, we drank our Mermaid Coffee in the screened-in porch and it was absolutely perfect. On one rainy day, we played games with the kids on the porch. That porch was where I spent most of my time (when not on the beach!). I loved it and want one of my own! Actually, I want the Blue Heron as my own!!! Wish I could afford it. For now we just plan on going back as often as we can!!!

      Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are thrilled that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Blue Heron so much you didn't want to go home!!!

We hope you do come back often; see you soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    I spent 5 nights here with my daughter and her friend. We all loved it! Plenty of room, comfy chairs for reading, big dining table for art projects. Easy access to beach. We even baked a birthday cake and found everything we needed in the kitchen. The online pictures really did not do this cottage justice. It is bigger and prettier than it looks. And we loved the shower! Thanks!

    I can't wait to return to Blue Heron Cottage. One teensy complaint would be the fridge wasn't cold upon arrival, but that was only because it had been opened for cleaning. It was spotless, just like the entire house! Our visit was over much too soon. The cleaning lady was extra nice, the books were great, and we grilled outside often. Thanks for making our stay so easy and carefree. I hate to recommend it yo others, simply 'cos I want Blur Heron all to myself!:-)

    Erin K from Mount Horev, WI recommends this vacation rental

    We began to relax almost as soon as we arrived. The "super-shower" and fireplace were just what we needed for the brief pause in our busy lives. Our interacation with Diane and her ingenue, Erin (from mermaid cottages) was so very pleasant. They dropped by to loan us a crate for our dog, and gave us a good amount of information about local eateries, etc. (Thank you so much, Diane!) We took them up on their recommendations and were not disappointed. Diane came back by to drop off some left-over passes to a local attraction and she is just so helpful and kind. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Tybee, and the Blue Heron home. It felt like it was ours during our stay. My husband said several times that he wants to buy it and live there! Guess he had a good time! Tripadvisor ratings aside, we had a great time at Sting Rays (conch fritters to die for/great musical entertainment), Breakfast Club (fast-paced diner/brasserie atmoshphere, great staff) and Fannies (you MUST get the Jalapeno Bottle Caps - hand battered and amazing) Oh and also sweet potato fries and crab stew at Social Club. Yum to all! I tried to make that crab stew and couldn't do it as well - that's the best recommendation I can give!

    The Blue Heron Cottage was the perfect setting for a reunion of four grade-school girlfriends! We woke up each morning of our stay to a refreshing cup of "Mermaid Bliss" coffee. We parked our cars on arrival and didn't get back in them until we left to go home. This cottage is in sucha convenient location. We walked everywhere. AJ's Dockside Restaurant was so close as well as the "downtown area" and the Breakfast Club. The walk to the beach was very quick. I will be going back to this great Historic Cottage...hopefully very soon.

    Our visit to Tybee this time was two fold -- first to celebrate our anniversary and relax and to attend Jane Coslick's Cottage Tour which was just awesome. We got to see the results of Jane's renovation of 17 cottages -- all of which were outstanding.
    Our stay at Blue Heron (this was our first time there) was wonderful -- Blue Heron is a great place to stay with all the amenities you could want -- and the new shower -- well, you could spend the day in it!!! The staff, as usual, at Mermaid Cottages is simply superb -- accomodating and responsive in every respect. Overall another great visit to Tybee and thank you to the owners of Blue Heron and of course to Diane and the Mermaid staff.

    We got there and found our cottage completely clean and stocked with what we needed for our first night. Everyone including our dogs loved the cottage and yard. The little guest dog tags were the MOST thoughtful! Mermaid Morning Bliss coffee on the screened porch the first mornings was perfect. The master bedroom bed and shower were the icing on the cake. The complete quiet in that neighborhood was just what we needed. The staff was amazing, professional and gracious. True southern hospitality. Go there if you NEED a total break from your real life!

    We were so glad to discover Tybee Island and what better time than Pirate's festival weekend. Thanks to the wonderful staff at Mermaid Cottages we were alerted to the festival when we booked our rental. My wife and I invited our daughters' and grandsons to join us for the Pirate Fest and we were happy that they could take time to share our first trip to the island.
    The Blue Heron cottage was everything and then some that we expected it to be. It's location was excellent for walking to Town or beach and also very close to the marshes. We enjoyed the cottage,plenty of space,nicely decorated and clean. I would really like to thank Diane of Mermaid Cottages. She was very helpful in recommending a boat tour (which in itself was worth visiting Tybee) and just her down to earth friendly personality making it great to work with Mermaids for our first visit to the island.
    We hold very special memories of our vacation and can't wait to visit Tybee Island again with the help of Mermaid Cottages!

    We were byond delighted with every aspect of our cottage-- especailly the incredible multi-jet shower heads and extremely comfortable beds. we regretted we were not able to put the Blue Heron cottage in our suitcase to bring home. Pure perfection by every reasonable test

    One of the best little vacations. Everything about the cottage was great! It was clean, comfy and had everything we needed (Our dogs loved the complimentary dog biscuits)! Close walk to the beach and little shops. This was our first trip to Tybee and we loved it! Can't wait to come back for another stay with the Mermaids!

    • Manager Responded on 9/18/2012

      We are delighted to hear that your first trip to Tybee was one of your best vacations; and we are so happy you chose Mermaid Cottages for your stay!

    I stayed in August 2012 for several days. Everyone mentions the main bedroom shower and I will too - it is fantastic. The house is gorgeous and roomy, beautifully decorated but also comfy, with a large kitchen. The beach is about 10 minutes away on foot and the location is fantastic. Mermaid was great to deal with as usual!

    Thank you for providing such a lovely property for us to relax in while on vacation! The Blue Heron was a lovely home! We were able to walk to the beach and several restaurants. We brought our dog because even though Tybee does not allow pups on the beach we prefer to have them with us. They very much enjoyed the fenced yard and long walks around the island. The kitchen at the house was lovely, and we were able to cook wonderful meals. Best part of the house was the shower in the master bathroom - that was amazing after a day on the beach! We will definitely be back to Tybee and renting from Mermaid is the only way to do it! An outstanding experience all the way around - thank you all!

    My family of four just left blue heron and we're already planning another stay. The pictures online were great, but the house was better than expected, much more spacious and such a wonderful location! This was our first time on tybee but we hit the jackpot with our first visit. The home is just a short bike ride from the south beach and a mere 3 block walk from a fishing pier where fish abound- we caught a shark! Also you're just down the road from AJ's where you can rent and launch a kayak. The mermaid staff were attentive and checked in to be sure we had everything we needed. The only thing I hope to see updated when we return is the porch couch/chairs. Super fun and funky, but they're a relic for sure, you kind of stick to the vinyl :) this house and the mermaids are true gems, best place on tybee for sure!!!!!

    Amy S from Glade Spring, Va. recommends this vacation rental

    The house was nice, floors were not that clean....had to wear socks to keep our feet clean from dirt and pet hair. However I am aware this house is pet friendly so in the future I will choose a house that is not pet friendly which will take care of that problem. I would recommend this house to my friends who have indoor pets.Other than the floors the rest was super clean! We enjoyed the shower and the nice screened in porch. The tv or cable I'm not sure which kept cutting out but only in the living room.The master bed was super compfortable! Over all I enjoyed our stay with mermaid but next time I will try to get a different house. This was our first yr staying with mermaid cottages, in the two previous years we stayed on the "marsh" or creekside I guess you call it, which was more private (with a different company) hopefully we can find something about the same with mermaid next yr.

    This was our third stay with Mermaid Cottages and our second in Blue Heron. Being a born and raised Georgian, Tybee Island/Savannah has long been my happy vacation place. Since moving north several years ago I haven't had as many chance to visit so we decided to spend a week this summer. As expected, the cottage was in great condition-super clean inside and out. The location is perfect for us. Close enough to the beach to walk there but far enough back on the island that it is peaceful and quiet. The biggest change since our last visit was the new shower in the master bath-amazing and a great addition! The Mermaid staff has always been friendly and helpful and I love how they support local artists and organizations. I would, without a doubt, recommend Mermaid Cottages and the Blue Heron to anyone looking for a spacious, quiet retreat on Tybee.

    The Blue Heron beach cottage is absolutely wonderful! My husband and I brought my mother to Tybee Island for a Fall getaway trip, and we could not have been happier when we walked through the doors as we arrived at the cottage. The screened-in porch was our favorite! And the master bath shower is definitely an added luxury! The cottage is decorated nicely, and the open kitchen area to the living room was great when preparing meals in the kitchen. The location is great (although it was a little bit of a long walk to the beach for my Mother who is in her 70's)... My husband and I took our bikes, and the area is perfect for a bike ride. I would defintely recommend this property, and I would stay here again. In fact, we are thinking about a much longer stay on our next visit. (Oh.. and the staff at Mermaid Cottages are wonderful and helpful. When we arrived, we were greeted right away and received a phone call from the staff on the second morning to ensure that we were happy with our accommodations! I think this is great customer service! Thank you again, Mermaid Cottages!) We will be back!.... and soon!

    We visit Tybee about once a year and we loved the Blue Heron, it was better than expected. It has a large screened in porch--one of the best features. Lots of room for everyone. You would never believe this place is pet friendly--you cannot detect any previous pets. Our English Bulldog loved it too.
    The beach is about 5 blocks away, but not a problem for us--we either walked or packed up the kids and all their stuff and drove.
    We will probably be using the Blue Heron on our future visits. We have stayed at several places and The Blue AHeron is our favorite.
    Thanks so much for such a wonderful time at Tybee Island.

    The Blue Heron Cottage on Tybee Island was Fantastic. The cottage was very clean with large rooms and had everything we could possibly need. The master bath was wonderful and we loved the screened porch. This was our first trip to Tybee and Mermaid Jan
    was very helpful and took great care of us. Tim from Tim's Beach Gear had the bikes we rented at the cottage when we arrived and picked them up when we left, great customer service. Now I know where the saying Southern Hospitality came from, Tybee and Savanna.
    We will defintely be back and stay at the Mermaids cottages again.

    We were expecting a great cottage having rented from Mermaid Cottages before but our expectations were exceeded! This quaint cottage was just perfect - a great mix of convenience, modern amenities with touch of old fashioned beach house! Highly recommend

    This will not be our last trip to the wonderful Blue Heron Cottage. We were just so happy with this cottage it is more beautiful than the photos online. at first when we booked this cottage we were concerned about its location but our concern was put to rest it was just a short walk to the beach and shops . We recommend this cottage it fit six just right with lots of room no cramping at this cottage. and the shower in the Master bedroom is like a spa. We have stayed in a lot of places and this is the best. Thank you Mermaid Cottages for doing such a wonderful job .

    We had a wonderful week at Tybee Island, the house was outstanding, our dog loved the yard and walks. We plan to visit again, Thanks

  • The house was great, plenty of room and kept up well. Close enough to walk to the beach or anywhere downtown, we loved it.

    The house was wonderful. There were a few minor maintenance issues with the place (ran out of propane, a/c compressor broke down), but I only mention this as a testament to Mermaid cottages commitment to customer service, they were quick to respond and fixed everything rapidly. Altogether a perfect trip and a great place to stay! We will definitely be back!

    My daughter, grandchildren and I loved the cottage. We felt like home the minute we arrived. Could walk from the cottage anywhere you wanted to go if you got tired of the Tybee Island parking fees! Hope to return.

  •  
  • This is our 2nd visit to Blue Heron and it is still a favorite. The open floor plan for living/kitchen/dining is a plus. Soothing colors and low key decor are great. Upgraded shower in master a big plus.

    Lynn M from Suwanee, Georgia recommends this vacation rental

    BLue Heron is a spacious house for relaxing. The living room/ kitchen is large and the screened porch is also roomy. We enjoyed the fireplace with the weather being a little cool for Tybee. We like the location to the backwater sunsets, the march views, and to the beach. All are a short bike ride on non-busy streets. All in all, a nice vacation home!!

    The cottage is quite large for a two bedroom, and decorated beautifully. The living area is surprisingly large and open to the kitchen which was fully equipped to cook any meal. Location was also a benefit, being in a quiet area but also close to the water. Thanks Diane and my neighbor David!

    We were extremely pleased with the responsiveness and helpfulness of Diane in finding us a place to get away from February in Indiana. The cottage was in great shape, everything we needed was there and we loved the low-key, quiet, pet friendly atmosphere. Locals were friendly and helpful, we will return!

    Sandra J from Ferrum, VA recommends this vacation rental

    This was our first visit to Tybee Island which was a treat in itself. However finding a nice place to stay could not have been easier. The cottage information online for Mermaid Cottages is very detailed and allows you to choose the best fit for your visit. Lemon Drop Cottage matched it's description and looks wonderfully and was a comfortable place to retreat for a weekend away even in February. Although we did not attend the Tie the Knot event on Friday night, it looked fun as we left the beach after an evening walk. We hope to come back again soon!
