    a guest from Ruston, LA recommends this vacation rental

    My husband & I came to Tybee with another couple to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. It was the perfect get away. Old Love is small & cozy. My husband & I stayed in the house out back. It was a little wet having to go to the restroom in the middle of the night but very relaxing listening to the rain on the tin roof. Tybee was beautiful & I enjoyed just sitting on the beach reading a book. I usually go to the beaches on the gulf & really enjoyed a totally different kind of beach. I also enjoyed being able to go into Savannah each night and eating at all the great restaurants! If you're looking for a great & relaxing trip then Old Love is your place!

    • Manager Responded on 7/28/2014

      We're so happy to hear what a perfect week you had at Old Love Cottage! We think it's adorable and love it when our guests think so too!

    Teresa S from Cincinnati, Ohio recommends this vacation rental

    We enjoyed every minute of our stay at the beautiful cottage Old Love. Close to a quiet beach and walking or bike ride to everywhere. We didn't want to leave.
    The path to the beach was a bit tight and needed to be trimmed a bit but that was minor!

    • Manager Responded on 7/22/2014

      Thank you for your review and recommendation for Old Love! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed every minute of your stay and didn't want to leave! Regarding the beach path, it is part of the dunes and by law cannot be trimmed. We hope to see you back again very soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    Tim S from Goldsboro, NC recommends this vacation rental

    We absolutely loved Old Love, we spent our Honeymoon on Tybee and it was the perfect spot for us. We loved all the little touches that gave it that warm and cozy feeling of a home away from home. The private little trail leading to the beach was just a yard over and it is located on a quiet street. The location of the cottage is central to anything on the island and every was so friendly. Will definitely return to Old Love and can't wait until we do!!!

    • Manager Responded on 7/3/2014

      Congratulations on your wedding and we are thrilled that you had such an enjoyable stay and honeymoon at Old Love Cottage!

    Robin S from Savannah, GA recommends this vacation rental

    This was our first overnight stay on Tybee (we live in Savannah), celebrating our 10th anniversary and brother-in-law/sister-in-law's 34th. Our cottage was so cute and I instantly relaxed as soon as we set foot inside. Super-close to the beach and very quiet. Our cottage and its yard were spotless and charming. The Mermaids were wonderful. We'll definitely be back!

    Old Love Cottage is wonderful!! The location is awesome, a short walk for anything! It was so neat and clean. We wanted for nothing. It was just my wife and I so it was like a second honeymoon. We didn't even used the extra bedroom out back.The fire pit and short walk to the beach were our faves. We loved it and we will be at old love again.

    My wife and I had a great time staying at Old Love. Its a perfect cottage, with a great backyard that makes you want to keep your bathing suit on all day, crack a cold one, and soak up the sun. You might as well list this property as "oceanfront" with how close you really are to the beach. It's on the sleepier North Beach side of town, which is awesome, with some great restaurants and the ultimate beach dive bar nearby.

    This was my family's first trip to Tybee and Old Love and may I say they were both amazing. We had the time of our lives and are already planning a trip next summer.

    I PLANNED A VACATION FOR MY MOTHER AND MYSELF. WHEN LOOKING FOR PROPERTY, I SHOWED MY MOTHER THE PICTURES OF "OLD LOVE" AND OTHER MERMAID PROPERTYS. SHE LOVED THE "PINK HOUSE" AND WANTED TO STAY THERE. WHEN I WENT TO RESERVE THE PROPERTY, IT WAS THE ONLY ONE LEFT. KINDA LIKE DESTINY. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY AWESOME. IT WAS THE PERFECT LITTLE COTTAGE FOR A RENEWAL OF FRIENDSHIP AND LAZY RELAXATION. THE DECOR WAS PERFECT. EVERYTHING WAS PROVIDED JUST AS THE INFORMATION SAID IT WOULD BE AND MORE. WHEN I CONTACTED THE STAFF REGARDING OUR STAY, THEY WERE WONDERFUL. THEY ANSWERED ALL MY QUESTIONS AND IT FELT LIKE TALKING TO OLD FRIENDS. ACCESS TO THE BEACH, RESTUARANTS, SHOPPING, AND EVEN THE HOSPITAL (WHICH WE HAD TO VISIT DURING OUR STAY) WAS ALL CLOSE BY. WE FELL IN LOVE WITH "OLD LOVE" AND PLAN TO RETURN SOON. THANK YOU SO MUCH MERMAID'S FOR THE PERFECT TRIP FOR MY MOTHER AND MYSELF.

    Judith J from Golden, CO recommends this vacation rental

    We rented two different cottages. One was a larger home further from the beach and the second was a much smaller one 99 1/2 steps from the beach to experience both. Our family had children as young as 10 to adults as old as 70. There was something for everyone a great family place. WOW what a great time!!! Sundae Cafe was fabulous. Weather was great because we got rain which doesn't happen much here in CO. I have travel all over the world in business and personal and I can say I was impressed with Mermaid Cottages.

    A great beach cottage that emphasizes simplicity and comfort. Uncluttered interior with a relaxing color scheme and comfortable where it needs to be. Big back yard with a standalone sleeping shack that introduces angles into the space that keep it visually inviting throughout, not just a yard. Location at the hook convenient to all of the island.

    My family had a terrific time at Old Love! It's cute, quaint, a short walk to the beach and had all the amenities for a short stay.

    We loved the cozy, quaint cottage. The bright colors and decor were wonderful. My 22 year old wants to buy it. She is single and needs a cozy place to come home to after work. The weather was awful so we got no beach time, but at least we had a fun place to be inside instead of a regular boring hotel room.

    • Manager Responded on 4/26/2013

      Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy that you and your family loved cozy, quaint Old Love Cottage! It is definitely a favorite and we can understand why your daughter wants to live at Old Love fulltime! We are so sorry you had bad weather for your stay; we hope you will plan a return visit in the sunny summertime! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    I cannot begin to say how wonderful my stay was at this Mermaid Cottage. The beds were truly the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Three of us went down to Tybee for a Girl's Weekend and we laughed ourselves silly and loved being so close to the beach. The cottage is inviting and bright and chock full of happiness inside. We all cannot wait to book from Mermaid again. Truly -- from the very minute we booked it until we had to leave to come back to Athens -- you can't ask for a more professional and FUN company to rent from. I am ready to run away to Tybee and work for the Mermaids. I've been going to Tybee for years now and should have been renting from Mermaid all along. No going back now. Many, many thanks!

We look forward to having you back on Tybee Island and back with us at Mermaid Cottages! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    It was such an honor to stay at Old Love. Everyone in our group loved it. My husband mentioned it again this morning. It is the most wonderful place imaginable. The beach is a tiny walk away. We enjoyed our wine in the backyard at night and I read my book on the blue swing with my coffee in the early morning. The cottage is tiny, like the original beach cottages and ever so charming. I loved the easy check in and check out and the mermaids are ever charming and ready to assist with anything 24/7. Everyone knows mermaids never sleep. I loved this cottage and can not wait to return. Thanks for the wonderfully charming, relaxing visit. Old Love will forever be in my heart.

    Stayed at Old Love cottage. It was heaven and had everything we needed. I loved the slipcovered chairs...backyard furniture, especially the swing. Could make a cup of coffee and walk the few steps to the beach to enjoy the sunrise. So quiet and peaceful at night--could see the stars. Very, very clean and beautifully decorated. Loved shopping at Seaside Sister as well. Very private! Loved hanging laundry on the retractable clothesline. Very eco-friendly.

    My husband & I LOVED the ambiance at the cottage. A true shabby chic cottage,... Reminded us of key west! We relaxed in the main cottage with our 15 mo daughter,...while my boys enjoyed the rear cottage (9 & 13). We took a baby "monitor" the boys at night ;). The only recommendation take bug spray and if extended stay,... Bring many citronella candles or a means to ward of the Mosquitos,...the bug of the south was horrible,...not being able to enjoy the outside area,..which was adorable.
    The mermaid cottage rental company is amazing,...the girls are great & more than helpful!!
    We will be back & will work with the mermaid rentals!

    Our family had a blast!!! The little pink house is sooo close to beach, no hassle to find parking or tote supplies to beach. We loved the outdoor shower and firepit. Absolutely adored the decorations and linens in the house and back bedroom. So stinkin cute. Compared to condos and other houses on Tybee, this one is by far the BEST! Even though it is small, there was plenty of great storage. The backyard bedroom was perfect for the in-laws!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!

    From the moment I walked up the stairs and into the cottage- I could not stop smiling. I love cottages. I have books and magazines in abundance. I don't just look though the books once - but study with passion! Old Love was just what I have read, studied, clipped pictures and bunny tagged pages about! A true cottage. One that in all it's tiny glory- is bigger than the grandest of mansions. Each square foot filled with character. Everything in its place. My husband laughed at me daily as I moved his things out of sight- not to clutter my view of the cottage ... And made the bed daily- just so I wouldn't disturb her beauty! Waking up in Old Love is so magical the way the sun bounces around the white walls. You feel refreshed just opening your eyes to the new day! Thank you to the owners for sharing this beautiful place!

    The island is so full of history. There is more than just the sun and beach to see. Taking in all of Tybee allows you to be apart of history. Riding bikes is a must! The sun and the breeze and the beautiful scenery- bring peace to such a busy life!

    The Mermaids picked this spot for I guess it's true- mermaids are magical!

    Loved our easy,quick access to the beach and our quiet dead end street. I was nervous it would be loud and busy so close to a main road through the island, but we felt very secluded. And we could hear the tide at night. Very quaint cottage, great trip for our family! General condiditon, especially for the age of the cottage, was great! There are just a couple things that could maybe use a little attention, but nothing worth complaining about. Met our needs perfectly! Wish we could have stayed longer. We loved Tybee and Savannah. Sunrise on Easter Sunday was an incredible experience! So glad we brought our bikes, fun to ride around with everything being so accessible from our location. Thanks for the effective and easy rental process, we really enjoyed working with your company.

    My sisters, daughter, & I wanted to celebrate turning 50, 55, & 60 years old with a special road trip, highlighted with time at the beach. Found this cottage & found it to be just as quaint & special as it looked in the pictures. The beach was wonderful, clean, not crowded. And our last morning, the dolphins played in th water, almost like it was just for us. Staff was awesome, so helpful & friendly. Have & will recommend to friends. If we ever plan another trip to the area, this will be our first choice.

    My mom and I decided to do something different and stay in a cottage instead of a hotel or condo for our annual trip together. Overall, we had a nice experience. We found the staff helpful & informative. The main negative w/ us was not having access to the thermostat. It was locked up. Our last morning, the temp. was in the 40's and we were really cold as we were preparing breakfast and packing.

    • Manager Responded on 10/6/2011

      We are so glad you still enjoyed your experience at Old Love and we thank you for your feedback on the thermostat. Our housekeeping manager has already unlocked the thermostat to give our guest some control with our fluctuating temperatures. Our ultimate goal is that all of our guest enjoy our homes with the greatest comfort and best experience and we strive to make sure you all know our Mermaid Team is available 24/7 during your stay. If you had only called us we could have made the adjustments for you then to assure your continued comfort. We hope to have you back on Tybee soon and let us know if we can assist you with your next visit.

    We had a great time at Old Love cottage! The house was so cute that I am already planning my retirement that house! :) It was like walking back in time. My only suggestions to the owner would be to get a much larger television set. It rained while we were there and it would have been nice to be able to watch a movie together, but the set was too small and the volume not loud enough. The other suggestion would be to continue the oyster stepping stones to the back Sleeping House, again, it rained and we had to slosh through the water to go back and forth. Overall, our stay was just great!

    Old Love exceeded my expectations in every way. Nestled on a quiet little beach street, the cottage was perfectly clean and just what I needed for my "mom" retreat. Given the confined kitchen space... everything I needed was available. I especially appreciated the sharp knives... a rarity in beach places! Will definitely stay again.

    Storm S from Westerville, OH recommends this vacation rental

    In 2008 by best friend and I stayed for 8 days in Jane Coslick's "99 Steps from the Beach," the house next door. We loved it so much that I knew someday I had to bring my husband of 38 years - also an Old Love - to Tybee. At that time, Jane was selling "Old Love," then named the "Luscious Litte Cottage," and she gave me a tour. It's been sold and redecorated since then & is still just as adorable. My husband and I agree that our stay was WONDERFUL! We have no complaints whatsoever. We found it clean & cozy thanks to responsive heat and cooling (we used both and none, weather depending). We feel so blessed to have had such a romantic, relaxing time. It felt like we were in our own home on the beach! We'll be back!

    The cottage was fantastic! We are a family of 4 and had plenty of room to stretch out. Not to mention how adorable it was, love the decor and the location. We were close to the beach for nice walks, our only complaint was the weather. It rained everyday, but because Savannah was so close we got to enjoy the city. We would like to go back and enjoy more of the beach. It was a great cottage & the staff was very helpful.
    If you have never been to Tybee Island, we all recommend it, great restaurants (The Breakfast Club!, A.J.s Dockside), great stores, great beaches, you can relax or drive into Savannah for more great dinning and history lessons! Dolphins, stingrays, manetees, aligators, gorgeous sunsets, oh my!

    Angela R from New Albany, Indiana recommends this vacation rental

    We definitely enjoyed our stay at Old Love cottage. It was a great place for our family of four to enjoy our first trip to Tybee Island. We had a great time at the beach, visiting the light house and Ft. Pulaski. The restaurants were great as well as the relaxed, layed back environment.

    The only thing about the cottage that should be clearly listed in the description is that the second bedroom is actually in a different building than the cottage. We figured this out before hand but when I booked this cottage I did not realize there were too separate buildings. Since we have small children, one adult and one child had to sleep together. Bummer for mom & dad!

    Oh well, over all Old Love was a delight to stay in and we were very please that we found such a great place to spend our spring break.

    Thanks, God Bless

    The location is truly within earshot of the beach along a dune trail at the end of a quiet street. The cottage was like a magic getaway, with the little cottage at the back an added bonus. Beautifully decorated, the cottages have a beachy, cozy, welcoming feel we have held onto long after returning to the cold North. We can't wait to return to the warm hospitality of Mermaid Cottages, both the people(David was wonderfully welcoming and helpful) and the accommodation.

The cottage was absolutely adorable and just perfect for our needs. The staff was great and very attentive. There's nothing like good old Southern Hospitality! Thank You Mermaid Cottages!

    a guest from Boston, MA recommends this vacation rental

    Mermaid Cottages made it easy to see this and several other attractive cottages on Tybee. The place was sweet and comfortable, on a dead-end street genuinely only a five minute walk to a beautiful open beach. As our visit was off-season (early March), we enjoyed a sense of real seclusion. The property includes a second building that feels like a huge (screened in) treehouse for afternoon naps. We would definitely stay at Old Love cottage again.

    We loved Old Love, it was in a perfect location. The Cottage was spotless and comfortable. The linens smelled so good, if we could bottle it up we would be in heaven. So close to the beach, fine dining and a convenience store. The "Tree House" behind the main cottage as we called it, was so unique and quaint; a room surronded by windows with the ocean breeze coming through at night. The staff was amazing and always available to assist. Old Love is a must stay!

    We stayed in Old Love cottage for the week of our wedding in October 2010 and most of our guests stayed in other Mermaid Cottages. All of the cottages got rave reviews from our wedding guests and the Mermaid staff gave us impeccable, personal service all weekend. Jan and Barbara even made a point to introduce themselves to us personally during the weekend and called us to make sure everything was going smoothly with the accomodations. As always, we give Mermaid Cottages our highest recommendation for Tybee accomodations and we will never stay with any other company. Thank you, Mermaids!!
