1515 2nd Avenue Tybee Island, GA 31328 United States

1515 2nd Ave., Tybee Island, GA, 31328

We just adore this cottage! Close (3 minutes) to downtown Tybee and all that means... shopping, ice cream and gelato, fishing pier, restaurants and the Marine Science Center - yet quiet and residential and a haven to relax.

The beach is an easy 8 minute walk as well (either the downtown beach area or the Back River Beach). We are pet-friendly with multiple pets welcome. Fenced-in yard. NOTE: Yard is fenced but beware that dogs may be able to breach the fence in some areas. We do not recommend leaving dogs in the yard unattended.

This cottage has been recently redecorated and is absolutely adorable! It is very clean, fresh and comfortable with a Queen bed in the master bedroom and a double bed in 2nd bedroom. This cottage sleeps 4 comfortably.

The bathroom is a small, vintage-size bathroom. If you are 6'2" or taller, this cottage and bathroom may not be for you, but would be perfect for a couple or small family.

Complimentary WiFi and Mermaid Morning Bliss Coffee!

Come visit soon!!!

Complimentary off-street parking for 2 cars..

Please note: Longer minimum stay requirements of up to 7 nights will apply during certain times of the year including holidays and our summer season.

    Marya D from Boxford, MA does not recommend this vacation rental.

    The cottage was close to many beaches. With bike rentals near by we had access to the whole was a wonderful week!! The management at Mermaid called us before our stay to ask us if we had any questions.....which was a real plus in customer service. The cottage is updated quaint and clean. Having said this, the only consideration I offer is an overhaul on the shower. After day after day on the beach and lots of exercise, it would have been great to have more than a dribble of water pressure and an updated shower!!

    • Manager Responded on 8/13/2017

      Hi Marya! Thank you for letting us know how fabulous the Mermaids were to you, and about the shower! We will definitely take a look at that (Mermaids love water, ya know) and see what we can do to fix that for the next person. We value your opinion and thank you for taking the time to let us know! ~ Jennifer and the Mermaids

    Our stay at Sanford Place was wonderful! The cottage was so quaint and cozy. The decor gave it a definite vintage beach feel. My family and I enjoyed lazy mornings deciding what to do for the day and was excited to return home in the evenings to relax. Mermaid Cottages was a joy to work with and very accommodating!

    One word....perfect. My best friend and I take a weekend every summer and just escape. Never been to Tybee before, but I know we will be back. We parked our car on Friday morning and didn't move it until it was time to leave. Everything we needed was in walking distance. The owner has done a great job trying to make sure the guest were comfortable. I am telling you that if I could have gotten one of those beds in my luggage I sure would have....

    • Manager Responded on 6/16/2017

      Thank you so much for the sweet words! It will for sure put a smile on the owner's face! She takes great pride in trying to make sure every guest has the best Sanford's experience and is as happy in her home as she is ........when she gets her short Tybee time! Please come again soon, Mermaid Denise and the Mermaid Pod!!

    Cheryl W from Peachtree City, Georgia does not recommend this vacation rental.

    This was an adorable cottage. I spent most of my time on the front porch which was very small but adorable. It was very cute and decor was adorable. But this had only one bathroom and the shower was a closet made into a shower. It was dark and scary. We could not get hot water for longer than 2 or 3 minutes and the water pressure was very poor. It was so frustrating to come in from the beach sandy and dirty and need a warm shower and not be able to get one. After calling to address my concerns they sent a plumber out and he told me that it was fixed. Later that day we came in from the beach and again the same problem no hot water. We were then given another rental to stand which was very nice rental. We have spent many vacations in Mermaid cottages and never had a problem. But this cottage was a big disappointment due to the shower. Also there is a washroom area that next to the door when you are walking out of the washroom area there is a foam strip that is nailed to the door with Clarmarc's on it that looks like a poor animal had been shut in this room and climbed all the way up to the ceiling to get out. It was very disturbing to look at. I think if that were changed it might help the cottage as well.

    • Manager Responded on 6/18/2017

      Thank you so much for your feeback. we always appreciate and value what our guests have to say. we have worked to resolve the plumbing problems so hopefully this will not be a problem in the future for our guests. the mermaids

    Sanford House was just perfect. Good location to the beaches, super clean and well stocked. We rode our bikes around Tybee daily and even collected a few seashells at the beach. Be sure to try Huc-A-Poos for a pizza and don't miss Gerald's for pork and shrimp. All around Tybee and Sanford house are a nice laid back time.

    Mermaid Cottages was very helpful and went out of their way to accommodate us. Denise and Brandy could not have been nicer,or easier to work with.
    Sanford's Cottage was a perfect fit for the 4 of was clean,has a fully stocked kitchen and the washer & dryer were a bonus.
    The beds were unbelievable with memory foam toppers,
    The location was perfect,a quite neighborhood and just 2 blocks from the beach,grocery store, shopping, and restaurants.
    Thank you for making our time on Tybee Island a memorable stay.

    Cottage was clean, well stocked, and very close to restaurants and the beach. We loved being able to travel with our dogs and we enjoyed walking them on the streets. The fence and yard need some repairs but we were able to sit outside with our dogs and enjoy the mornings and afternoons. The cottage was comfortable and we enjoyed our spring at the beach. Lots of long walks and bicycle rides. Coco's has the BEST shrimp and FANTASTIC service of all the places we visited. Definitely look forward to our return.

    We loved this little cottage. Very cozy and comfortable. Everything you could need was provided in above average quality. It is true that the toilet is in a weird spot. I don't think a person of considerable size could stay here. And even though there are two bedrooms, I wouldn't recommend this place for more than two people comfortably. The beds are both doubles. It was tempting to peel off into separate rooms haha. Our doggie Junebug thought the place was totally phenomenal! ?? And thanks for the delicious organic coffee!!

    Master Bedroom with tv has a poor mattress that needs replacement. There is a piece of foam over the mattress but when two people are in the bed you easily roll to the center or if turning over roll off the edge of the mattress on to the floor. Plus one of the yellow metal chairs on patio next to the house has a rusted broken leg which should be scrapped for safety purposes.

    This place was amazing. Me and my wife staid here on our honeymoon and could not be more pleased. The cottage is located 3 blocks of the beach and walking distance to almost all the bars and the pavilion. The beds were cozy had a great little back porch to drink your morning worked great, Neighbors were great,TV worked great, Wifi worked great. Just everything was spot on. I will say that the only complaint I have is that it needs a bit of TLC but hey its a 90 year old house so no biggie there. If your looking for a great little cottage you cant do any better than this place.

They were great and would use again!

    We booked a house from Mermaid cottages (the Stanford's Place and Doyles on the Dunes) for our last week of summer vacation. Day in a half into it, all is well until they called to say we needed to vacate! Water leak under the house…oh bother. Well they put us up in a nicer house, with an extra day and a nice chartered boat tour of Little Tybee Island, which I highly recommend. I think they handled the situation professionally and we were all happy in the end (except for the people with the broken water line…oh well stuff happens!). We've stayed in many of their cottages and have always are pleased and they are the first people we call when we are planning a visit to Tybee!

    Broken tiles under rug in bathroom were a little scary the first time we stepped on rug & felt the floor give. Relieved to find missing/broken tile underneath.
    Very comfortable beds & pillows. A major plus.

    Cathy H from Bartlett, IL recommends this vacation rental

    Sanford Place really fit the bill for us and the dog. The fenced in yard was perfect for him to wander through the yard and enjoyed seeing people and dogs walk past.

    Located only 2 blocks from town, the pier and the beach, it was wonderful to be able to walk to town for restaurants, shops and people viewing!

    The house was clean and comfortable. As mentioned the bathroom is small, but these two seniors were able to use the toilet without challenge. We loved the sun porch, and enjoyed a few afternoons on the daybed reading and taking naps! I would highly recommend the Mermaid Cottages to anyone who is visiting Tybee. This was our second stay on Tybee, and hopefully not our last!

    I would recommend a walk on the pier, the Crab Shack, Back in the Day Bakery in Savannah, and Gerald's Pig and Shrimp.

    Savannah was only a 15 minute ride away, so it was ideal to be able to visit this great town, but get away from the crowd by staying on Tybee. We visited after summer, so the pace was a bit slower on Tybee, but still vibrant and fun!

    Our stay at Mermaid Cottages was absolutely magical! We were looking for a place for a safe sisters' getaway and came across Tybee Island through Pinterest. The staff was amazingly friendly and professional! They helped make our trip possible AND helped us find the right place for us! Sandford's Place 1930 is the perfect location--steps from the beach, restaurants and the grocery store. Our cottage was picturesque, relaxing, inviting and truly captured the spirit of the beach! We felt right at home, and the staff made sure all our needs were met! We highly recommend Lighthouse Pizza (beach), Fannie's On the Beach, and The Tybee Island Social Club! We also enjoyed the Marine Science Center, and a day trip into Historic Savannah (and dinner at Lady & Sons).
    We hope to return one day!

    a guest from Decatur, Georgia does not recommend this vacation rental.

    The house was clean, the location is ideal for kids and the staff are fantastic. The bathroom however, needs some help. The sink is pretty much over the toilet - sitting on the toilet means your legs go under the sink. Getting my 3 year old on and off the "potty" was not easy and my mom just could not do it. The bathroom really needs to be remodeled. Don't stay here if anyone in your party has mobility issues, they will not be able to use the bathroom. And, the Mermaid coffee was not bad!

    • Manager Responded on 10/18/2012

      Thank you for your review and feedback. We appreciate feedback such as yours as it is what allows us to continue offering the very best beach vacation experiences possible for our guests. While Sanford's Place is a vintage cottage and not for everyone, it is one of our most affordable cottages, is in a great location and is pet-friendly. These attributes sometimes override the fact that the bathroom is very small. And, we do note in detail in the online description of the home the fact that the bathroom is very small and would not accommodate everyone. We hope you will plan a return visit to Tybee Island and Mermaid Cottages very soon! Let us know your preferences when you call; we would love to assist in selecting the perfect cottage for all of your needs! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    We had a wonderful time at Sanford Place! The home reminded me so much of my grandparent's home- I felt like I was in a familiar place!
    We were close to everything. Walking to the pier and the beach was so convenient!
    The Mermaid staff was attentive all the way through - from reservation to arrival!
    Thank you for providing a cozy retreat for us before we head back into the hectic schedule of a school year!

    The Sanfords Place location was GREAT! It was in walking distance to the beach and AJ's restaurant. The island life is laid back and everyone is so friendly. The house was on the small side but it was as described and no complaints with that at all. The staff called to check in with us and has always returned calls for any issues. I will always use Mermaid Cottages for my stay at Tybee.

    We (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed at Sanford's Place for four nights in April and loved the convenient location of the cottage. The bathroom is very small, and there is no dishwasher, but we loved hanging out on the screened-in porch with friends. Besides being on the small side, the cottage had everything we needed, and the Mermaid staff called and came by several times to make sure everything was to our liking.

    • Manager Responded on 4/24/2012

      We are delighted that your family had fun and enjoyed hanging out at Sanford's Place. That screened porch is a favorite gathering spot.

    Leonard C from Marietta, GA recommends this vacation rental

    Small place but reminiscent of 1930's Tybee (not that I'm old enough to remember--not even close). Kid's loved the retro TV and I disagree with the "if you're over 6'1" not the place for you" I'm 6'4" and handled it just fine. Excellent front porch for reading and our family of 5 handled the one bathroom house very well. Loved the short walking distance to everything Tybee (Tybrisa shops, beach, breakfast, beer, etc.) Never took the car out. Will indeed stay here again.

    • Manager Responded on 3/14/2012

      So glad to hear how much you enjoyed Sanford's. It truly is in a great location! And, it's unique retro style is definitely like a step back in time! Hope to see you back again real soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    a guest from Duluth, GA recommends this vacation rental

    Loved our stay on Tybee. The easy walk to the beach, shopping, and the pier was fantastic. The Sanford cabin was great with a few exceptions. The bathroom was a little awkward. This could be rectified by moving the sink to the shower wall. My furry friends enjoyed the yard and the walks. A back door from the utility room would have made the fenced-in backyard easier to use. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will certainly have fond memories of this vacation.

    • Manager Responded on 2/24/2012

      So glad to hear you and your furry friends enjoyed the cottage/yard. The location of this cottage is one of the favorite things about it; sounds like that was a plus for you too. Thanks so much for your suggestions to make the bathroom more accessible as well as suggestion regarding addition of a back door from the utility room. We are passing along your review and suggestions to the homeowner. Your honest feedback is what gives us the opportunity to make your stay with Mermaid Cottages the best vacation experience possible.

    The cottage has all the essentials for a family of four. We got to know the history of Tybee and people were very nostalgic about the cottages from this era. The master bed was a bit soft for us but still comfortable. The location was great. We took morning walks on both sides of the island. Saw dolphins, pelicans and more hermit crabs than you can imagine. Magical!

    Wonderful location and the fenced in yard was great for our dogs ( you can't leave dogs out alone, but it was nice to let them blow off some steam). Our only complaints were that the water pressure in the shower was pretty low and the two bedrooms share a wall. The Mermaid staff was great and we would certainly (and probably will!) return.

    Gary and Ann B from Monticello, IN recommends this vacation rental

    This cute cottage was very clean and pretty much as described in the website. It is very 'vintage' which adds to the charm. Love the linens on the bed. Nice touch! We were sorry not to be able to make much use of the cute screened porch but it was much too hot. It's right on the bike trail, which we used a lot, and an easy walk to town. The cottage itself was very dog friendly. The back yard was fenced in but not too convenient as you have to go outside and open a large gate to get into it.
    Since you asked here are a few 'could improves':
    We were disappointed that when we arrived the grass was about a foot tall and was never mowed until the day before we left. We were excited to see ice cubes ready for cold drinks, but then discovered that they reeked of a dead fish smell. I had to completely scrub out the freezer before any use. The kitchen could use some EMPTY cabinets for items guests bring. There was no where to put our things. The bedside lamp was of no use because the cord wouldn't reach an outlet. And finally, the wasn't a problem for us but if you are over 250 lbs I'm not sure how it would be possible to maneuver to get yourself seated on the toilet. My husband is 6'3 and height wasn't really a problem as I had seen in previous reviews. Just an FYI.
    I exchanged several emails with Diane and found her to be most helpful. They have a very efficient payment and check-in process. I think most people would enjoy this place. This has nothing to do with the cottage but would like to mention that you have to pay to park wherever you go, beaches, restaurants, even to the park! What a turn off!!! At least from this cottage you can walk or bike most places.

    It was a wonderful escape into the past. I’m a Georgia girl living in a “Roll Tide” world and it brought back pleasant memories of visiting the coast when I was a child. The Mermaids were so efficient and the ultimate dream team. Next time I will book “early” and obtain a house with more space with at least two (2) bathrooms. This is not a slap to Sanford’s Place because it was charming and we could tell it was loved! I know there must be a story about the bathroom and would love to hear it. My only suggestion would be to fix the leaking drip in the shower. Loved being on Tybee! Everyone was so friendly and just enjoyed the laid back attitude.
