    My group of 11 came to Tybee Island for my bachelorette party and rented the Castaway and the Breeze Inn next door to it. The homes were so comfortable, walking distance to the beach, decorated adorably and the check in process was almost TOO easy. I can't recommend this enough!

    The house was wonderful and very comfortable, as described on the web site. I loved the décor and the location. Our family had a great time. We enjoyed a trip to Savannah, eating at Sundae Café, Sting Ray's and Sugar Shack. The beaches were great but a "potty" at each beach would be nice.

    Makenzie S from Stoney Fork, Ky recommends this vacation rental

    This house was amazing. It had EVERYTHING we needed, and was so comfortable and decorated perfectly. It was only 3 blocks from the beach and extremely close to the restaurants we love! We came down with a group of friends for my boyfriend's 31st and Carol made it so special! She hung up a personalized banner I sent down, had balloons everywhere, a banner inside, and it was so sweet of her to make sure that those special personalizations were made. He loved it! So thank you Carol! Anna also does a great job at cleaning the house and making you feel right at home. Mermaid Cottages is a great rental group to go through and I will use them again! My boyfriend proposed to me in the living room of this house, now it has even more character... I hope others can make memories just as special at Castaway Cottage! Thanks Mermaids, it was AWESOME!

    • Manager Responded on 7/29/2014

      Thanks so much for your wonderful review and recommendation for Castaway Cottage and Mermaid Cottages! Congratulations on your engagement! Castaway Cottage will always be a special place for you! We will be sure and pass along your thanks to Mermaids Carol and Anna; we appreciate you letting our mermaids know how much their attention and customer service is appreciated! We hope you will come back and stay with us again soon; maybe for your honeymoon??? Again, congratulations! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    Our stay at Castaway was fantastic! The cottage was darling, and very clean. (Thanks Anna) There was plenty of bedding, and nice thick towels. I especially loved the dark colored washcloths for makeup. The outdoor shower was used more than any other shower. Essential for 3 kids and the beach! Carol made the reservation process easy. We are already talking about returning next summer.

    • Manager Responded on 7/14/2014

      Thanks so much! We are thrilled to hear how much you and your family enjoyed your great family getaway at Castaway Cottage!

    We had a wonderful week visiting Tybee. Castaway was very cozy and relaxing. Anna did a very nice job preparing it for us. We love mermaid cottages and can't wait to return!

    One suggestion for the cottage would be more towels. We felt one set per person wasn't quite enough for a week stay.

    • Manager Responded on 7/13/2014

      Thank you for your review and recommendation for Castaway Cottage! We are delighted that you had such a wonderful week! We do have 24/7 Guest Services available and encourage our guests to call if they need ANYTHING during their stay. We provide one set of towels per number of people each cottage sleeps and that is usually sufficient however, if not, Guest Services is but a phone call away AND each cottage has its own washer and dryer on site if guests prefer that option. We are so happy that you are already planning to return and look forward to seeing you soon! The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    We had a fantastic time at this precious cottage! The pictures do not even do it justice--- it is so cozy, comfy, colorful. i want it. When we arrived early, mermaid Anna was finishing up and was so accomodating and really friendly. We rested so well here, had perfect beach weather, saw dolphins, and had great family time. We will definitely be back!

    Thanks to y'all, we had a wonderful holiday vacation to the beach. So, so happy with all the amenities, cleanliness, decor, comfort of Castaway. The third bedroom does lack same level of appeal and comfort of rest of cottage, and Could use some attention, in our opinion. Special thanks to Anna for her attention to detail in cleaning the whole house, top to bottom. Her effort really shows. Thanks, again, Mermaids! We WILL be back to Tybee and look forward to another wonderful stay in a Mermaid Cottage.

    Castaway is a great cottage!! It was a girl's week away with our "furry babies". The house was super clean and had all the amenities one could want. Great location on the quiet bike path. Super short walk to the beach and the IGA (where you MUST get up early and take advantage of their homemade cinnamon rolls at the deli....but, hurry....they don't last long!). We always rent through Mermaid Cottages and have never been disappointed. I highly recommend Castaway....you won't be disappointed.

    Once again, for about the 6th year or more, we had a great stay at Castaway. Anna did a great job cleaning the house for us before arrival, and it was perfect. We love the location and the proximity to the beach as well as the downtown and restaurants. (we do bike most places). Hoping to come again next year and stay again!

    Linda B from Selah, Washington recommends this vacation rental

    We only had two days to cram as much as we could into our Tybee Island stay! Our first stay with Mermaid Cottages was at the Castaway. It was such a cute cottage and we had fun just looking at all the fun décor and items in the cottage! So quaint! We stayed next to the Breeze Inn and were hoping to catch a glimpse of Mary Kay Andrews! We definitely needed more time to drive around the island and see all there was to see. Each restaurant we ate at was great. Loved the "Seaside Sisters" store and other fun shops. The weather was a little cool. Would love to come back again when the weather was a little warmer and we could stay longer! A big thank you to Mermaid Cottages for a fun stay!

    Tybee Island was a delight to visit, but our cottage was THE BEST!! It was so well decorated, was completed furnished and appointed with everything we needed, and the Mermaid crew was available 24/7 if we needed them. Cottage was **** and span clean. We were right in the middle of the island which was perfect. There was outdoor space in the sun, and in the shade. Outdoor shower was private and connected to an inside bathroom. Can't imagine what would make this cottage better.

    I love everything about Tybee and Mermaid Cottages staff and rental property. The Castaway was nicely decorated and comfortable. My best friend and her teenage daughter and a friend joined us and it was great. The teens stayed in the back bedroom with the sunroom and they had a blast. The only complaint was that the kitchen was poorly stocked. We cook and there just wasn't much to choose from and the pots and pans were in bad shape! Other than that it was great.

    This beach rental was perfect! It was even cleaner and nicer than originally expected. There is a large sunroom taht I spent most of my time in. You can read in the window and close the doors to shut yourself off from the noise in the rest of the house. There is a great outdoor shower and they provide a Weber grill for cooking. This is a must-rent property. We will DEFINITELY be back!

    a guest from Hyde park, Ma recommends this vacation rental

    We absolutely loved our stay at the Castaway Cottage. The home was well stocked and extremely clean. The only reason I gave four stars for the general property condition was because the patio furniture had not been cleaned and there were spider webs on it. The beach is only a short walk away and was never crowded, no matter when we went. I would highly recommend you stay with the mermaids on Tybee Island.

      Thank you for your review! We are delighted that you loved your stay at Castaway and we sincerely appreciate your recommendation!

We always appreciate guests' feedback as this is what allows us to continue offering our guests the very best beach vacation experience possible! We look forward to seeing you again soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    "Castaway" was perfect for our family reunion. Very comfortable, colorful furnishings & the A/C felt great after hot hours on the beach.There are games, puzzles which we enjoyed.The patio was a pleasant retreat early and late in the day for reading and the site of our grilling activities, too. Neighborhood was nice, quiet and houses well cared for on that street.Mermaid Cottages always does a wonderful job of welcoming and preparing for your arrival and stay!

    I have stayed at Mermaid properties for years; I have to say that each time I am thoroughly impressed with the cleanliness and attention to every detail! Castaway was so nicely decorated, sparkling clean, and very comfortable. We had everything we needed and more! The location was perfect as well; we were two blocks from the beach in a quiet, friendly neighborhood with bike-friendly streets. I would gladly recommend this property to a friend.

    We have stayed at Castaway now for 4 years in the month of May and would not stay anywhere else. We ride bikes everywhere so we do not have to pay for parking and it is close enough to get everywhere (beach, downtown, restaurants, etc). The cottage is perfect for us (just two) but could accommodate more folks). We just don't want anything smaller, as we can spread out and be on the porch, or in our rooms, or in the living room. The place is in a quiet location and on a great tree-lined street. The amenities are perfect and if you ask for something additional that you might need, they accommodate you. ALL IS GOOD!

    Hillary D from Athens, GA recommends this vacation rental

    The Castaway cottage on Tybee was absolutely fantastic!!! It literally looked just like the pictures (which doesn't usually happen) and was so cute and comfortable we immediately felt at home.
    The location was perfect; only a 5 min stroll to a non-crowded beach where there were no painful sea shells to step on, it's only a block away from the local grocery store and a 1/2 mile (still walking distance) to the more touristy pier area of Tybee. At night you don't hear a single car and the rooms are pitch black since there are no streetlights outside the windows.
    I brought along a UK friend who had never been to a beach before and to quote her "I never realized why people were so obsessed with beach vacations before, now I don't want to leave!"
    Thank you Mermaid for making our stay wonderful!
    We will definitely be back!!!!

    Nancy S from Niskayuna, NY recommends this vacation rental

    We were so happy with the Castaway. Great size for our family of 5. It was both cuter and roomier than the pictures portrayed. Our teenage daughters quickly made themselves at home in the small bedroom and lounge that at one time must have been a porch. Location made it easy for them to walk to stores/restaurants on the north or south end of the island and the walk to the beach is a breeze. We loved Tybee's small town vibe. Since it was late August, we had huge swathes of the beach to ourselves and sat right down in every restaurant. We would happily recommend this or another Mermaid Cottage and hope to return ourselves, especially if our daughter chooses Emory for college. Mermaids responded quickly to a plumbing issue and we loved an afternoon charter to Little Tybee with Captain Rene, who we found on the Mermaid website.

    James C from North Royalton, OH recommends this vacation rental

    My husband and I stayed at Castaway March 8 - 14. The house was so comfortable and cheerful! I loved the lime green kitchen and all the beachy accents! Since there were only two of us, we each had our own bathroom and plenty of space for our luggage and clothes. I think Castaway would be great for four people, but six would be tight. The bedroom on the right side of the house is quite small - would be OK for small kids.

    The location of Castaway is great! It's a short walk to the beach, and restaurants are also in walking distance. The street is very nice and quiet. It's also on the bike path.

    We would definitely rent this house again. The Mermaids are great!!

    I would like to thank Mermaid Cottages for helping to make my family's New Year vacation a complete success! I was blown away by the fantastic decor of this cottage. The location was unbeatable and the kitchen had everything I needed to serve up fantastic breakfast, lunches, and dinners. The town is wonderful with restuarants nearby and the store right down the street (all walking or biking distance). my dogs loved the cottage also and the neighborhood was quiet and neighbors friendly! I can't wait to go back to Tybee and stay with mermaid Cottages again! Thanks again for making our stay such a pleasurable one. :-)))

    The only thing I would change is the location - had to drive to places we usually walk to - otherwise I would always pick Castaway while on Tybee.Very cute, clean, well stocked down to the spices, and we felt right at home.

    • Manager Responded on 11/27/2011

      So happy to hear you felt right at home at Castaway! That is the experience we want for all of our guests-"to feel at home away from home". So sorry you had a difficut time with the location. Usually centrally located a few blocks from the beach is easier to get everywhere. On your next visit, just let us know if you prefer to be closer to the lighthouse North end or the downtown shopping area on the South end and we will love to help you with that. See ya next time!!

    willa J from Mc Roberts, KY recommends this vacation rental

    My parents and I, and our two little yorkies were looking for an affordable but comfortable trip to the beach this year. My dad usually hates going to the beach, he had only ever been to Daytona and Myrtle Beach. We had to struggle to get him to go, but once we were there he went crazy about our little cottage! We had the most relaxing trip and could not have enjoyed our time at the cottage anymore than we did.

    The staff at Mermaid cottages was AMAZING, and even helpful when our car battery died one day at the beach. We could not be more thankful for their kindness.

    The only thing that could possibly be improved is the water pressure in the shower. It took forever to rinse shampoo out of your hair..the water was just a trickle. Sink pressure in the bathroom was fine.

    Very nice cottage. We were there with four adults and our 3 year old son. Super clean, the kitchen was stocked beyond our expectations. We had a few questions while at the property that were communicated via E-Mail, and all were answered promptly. Would
    definitely reccomend to a friend.

    a guest from Charlotte, NC recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great trip to the Castaway in Tybee. This was the family's first week long stay and we can not wait to come back again. The cottage was perfrect for the family (Mom, Dad, 2 small boys ages 3 and 1). We had to do a little babyproofing for the 1
    year old but my 3 year old got a kick out of all the nooks filled with interesting things. The location is an easy walk to the beach with the help of our wagon. All in all a great experience.

    a guest from South Windsor, CT recommends this vacation rental

    We couldn't have been happier with both the cottage and the helpfulness of the staff. The cottage was spacious and comfortable, with plenty of room for 6 adults. The Mermaid people were incredibly helpful, from putting shades in the bedroom windows before we got there when we expressed concern about it being too light, to bringing us more hangers half an hour after we asked for them. It was great to be able to walk back and forth from the beach. Thank you for helping us to have a great vacation.

    Anna C from Tucson, Arizona recommends this vacation rental

    This property and the staff from Mermaid Cottages was fabulous. 3 colorful bedrooms, 2 baths (one perfect for someone who cann't climb over a bathtub) and a sunny fun sleeping porch make this the perfect cottage for a family or a couple. My husband and I were so confortable, the beds were cozy and the kitchen was equiped. Plenty to do on Tybee and the surrounding areas. The best dinner was at Sundaze Cafe (amazing) and we were glad to see that the North Beach restaurant was back in business. I'd recommend Mermaid's David as he was extremely responsive to our requests. Go and Enjoy!

    Beverly P from Lakeland, Florida recommends this vacation rental

    We were extremely pleased with everything in the cottage. Location, decor, and layout was wonderful. The only disappointment we had was a ball jar almost fell on my head when I closed a kitchen cabinet and then the owner's charged us an overpriced amount for it. We understand that it probably wouldn't have fallen if we weren't there but it wasn't like we were slamming the cabinets either. We would definitely stay there again but we would remove anything breakable on those shelfs.

  • This was the very best vacation we have ever had!!!! Tha way we just arrived and went to the castaway house and were able to begin our stay without paperwork or check-in problems was the greastest of all. Great job to all staff of the mermaids!!!!!

    A few things. The small 3rd bedroom didn't have a working light. Also, we didn't have a plug for the bathtub (we had toddlers and needed to set up a bath). Overall, a nice, clean, and comfortable place.

    We were so pleased with our stay here. It was all we were hoping for and more - with only one disappointment: The photos on the web showed the sun room with a futon which made us feel this was perfect for us 4 "girls." But when we arrived, the sunroom no longer had a futon - and instead had a window bench installed. We no longer had a 4th bedroom, and my sister and I had to share a bed. It was our only disappointment, and we all agree that you should update your photos and description to match what is actually offered. Otherwise, it was a perfect weekend.

    This was our 5th stay at Mermaid Cottages and our 3rd stay at the Castaway. Everything was wonderful as usual. When I return to a place each year, consistency is very important. Everyone at Mermaid Cottages works hard to maintain this.The Castaway is just perfect for a small family vacation or a few friends. Quaint and comfortable, we have always found it just right for our taste and location is just perfect. Thanks Mermaids for a wonderful 5th time at Tybee!! We'll be back soon...

    It'a really hard to have a Stay vacation because you always think why stay so close to home, but I want to tell you I had the best vacation ever just staying 20 minutes from my home on Wilmington Island. Staying on Tybee I choose to contact Mermaid Cottages and that was the best thing I could have done. Mermaid Cottages made me believe in customer service again, the staff was over and above accommodating. I will suggest Mermaid Cottages to anyone planning on staying on Tybee Island, and I feel like they have become friends. The Best!!!! I will plan anothe rStay Vacation with them before summer is gone.

    We made last minute plans to go to Tybee for the weekend, and Denise, Diane, Betty and everybody else from Mermaid helped to make our weekend wonderful. The Castaway is in a central, quiet location, right on the bike route, and two blocks from the beach. The cottage was very well-appointed and maintained and UNBELIEVABLY clean. My husband and kids enjoyed the cable TV, and I enjoyed the peace of the sun room for evening reading. We all would have been happier if we could have stayed longer! I've already recommended Mermaid to our homeschool community. Peace!
