Brooks Cottage

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental cottage. Sleeps 7, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms. Dogs allowed.

1714 Chatham Avenue Tybee Island, GA 31328 United States

1714 Chatham Ave., Tybee Island, GA, 31328

When you think of a "beach house" you think of white washed walls, lots of places to relax and nap and touches not found in your year-round home.

Brooks Cottage is the perfect definition of a beach house! Accommodating 7 guests, this home is large enough to take care of everyone's "alone time" but to also have space to come together and enjoy each other. Lots of comfortable seating for talking and napping, and an outstanding kitchen for concocting fabulous fresh seafood dishes. The fireplace is not a working fireplace. Downstairs you have a pool table and ping pong table to enjoy while you wait on your fresh seafood to grill!!

Note: Master bedroom has an extra twin bed.

South end of the island is superb for long leisurely walks, bicycle riding and getting to the beach in a flash. Restaurants and shopping all within a few blocks. For sunset watchers, the south end is the one spot to take in the gorgeous colors of dusk. A great place for making memories! This home is right beside Southern Cross Cottage so you can have two families stay together. Pet-friendly with fully fenced yard.

Complimentary off-street parking for 4 cars.

Minimum Age Requirement: Must be 25 years of age to rent this property.

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.

    Kimberly F from Mooresville, Nc recommends this vacation rental

    This is our fourth year renting through Mermaid Cottages and our third home. They have all been lovely, but Brooks Cottage was by far the best location for us. The beach was easily accessed going across the street or down the road. Town was right around the corner for breakfast, ice cream, shopping, bike rentals. We were still close enough to walk to AJ's Dockside restaurant and kayaking/paddle boarding rentals.
    The screened in porches on this home were wonderful for relaxing and watching the rain fall. We did have several rainy days but enjoyed the time together in the cottage. Kids had fun playing ping pong and pool.
    We hope to return soon!

    • Manager Responded on 9/10/2017

      We hope you will return soon, too! You always have your vacation home to pick from with Mermaid Cottages, but when you find your favorite it's hard to choose a different one. ;) We enjoyed having you! Fall is a great time to be here ~ watch our Facebook page for specials. ~ Jennifer & the Mermaids

      We love those porches, too! We're glad you noticed!! It's in such a nice location ~ you're minutes to the beach in 3 different directions and that makes it extra awesome! Come back again. Our fall and winters are amazing as well, and you can really spend time on those porches then! ~ Jennifer & the Mermaids

    This was our first time renting the Brooks cottage and it exceeded all of our expectations in every way. Upon arrival of the house, the ambiance was so relaxing! There was music playing as we walked in the door and the house was impeccably cleaned. The cleaning crew of Candace and Adam did an amazing job and everyone of the little details was evident. The house smelled fresh, the beds were so clean (and comfortable) and even the porches were pristine. The location of the house was so convenient. We thought we would have to rent bikes but we were so close to everything we just walked. The house is one (short) block from a less populated section of the beach or two blocks from the pier section and all the restaurants and shops. The house itself is shaded by wonderful landscaping so it stays cool, even on the back porch. All in all, this was my favorite rental place ever on Tybee!

    4 of us had a wonderful stay at Brooks Cottage. The house is clean and bright and has everything you need. Excellent service as always from the Mermaids - they called the day before our arrival to let us know the built-in microwave was broken but that a repair was scheduled - and they brought a counter-top microwave in the interim!

    With all those beds, the ping-pong and pool table underneath, and easy walk to the beach I would definitely come back with the kids.

    Brenda H from Marietta, GA recommends this vacation rental

    The home was immaculate and very comfortable. I can't say enough about the three beautiful porches. The home is in walking distance to the beach which was actually a dual-edged sword. On Saturday, cars descended on the area and traffic was coming and going for most of the day with the alley behind the house parked full of cars. It definitely detracted from the charm of the beautiful back porch. I would also caution anyone who has an issue with stairs that this may not be the best property choice for you as there are a lot of stairs to navigate. However, the house is lovely, clean and well-maintained and close to the beach and restaurants.

    Last minute decision to get away for a 3 day weekend and Jennifer from the Mermaid cottages answered my call at 9 pm was just the start of the great weekend we had. 1st of all the pics look nothing like the real home. Don't get me wrong the pics shown of Brooks Cottage were good but when you get there be prepared to be amazed! We walked in after midnight with flood lights in and soft
    music playing just like we were coming home. The decor is a breezy, whispy and
    bright beach cottage with a HUGE Farmhouse table and a Dream kitchen with all
    the extras. There are 3 huge screen rooms one when yr coming in the front door,
    1 out the back door and 1 off the master suite with 2 sleeping beds! A big soaker
    tub and walk in shower with frameless glass is not in the pics and it's gorgeous! Only a couple blocks from the ocean this place is so peaceful! If you get lucky enough to get Jennifer when you call you will be nothing but amazed! She
    helped us with every question. Myself and my awesome Husband will be back
    and will definitely stay longer! We barely left the cottage we were so comfy!

    This was a return visit and well worth it. Brooks is a lovely home, in a perfect location on the south end of Tybee. We were able to spend Thanksgiving with our sons and their family who live in Georgia. The beach access is so close and a quick walk to the fishing pier. Mermaid Cottages are the best. Had a problem with ripped screen on back porch due to hurricane and they had it fixed the next day. The porches were so nice and the weather in Nov. was perfect. We have stayed on Tybee the last 5 years in the fall and by far this is the best rental. Thanks you for being pet friendly!

    Stayed with 2 grown children, husband and mother. We all have memories from Tybee as children and I especially have good ones of the Back River area. The house was decorated beautifully and had everything we needed. We loved the large back porch. The only negative comment is the bed in the Master bedroom was a little soft. Might be time for a new mattress. We all said we would like to stay at The Brooks Cottage again.

    Great location. One block to beach where river meets ocean. Three blocks to second beach entry. Walk to breakfast and pier.
    . Beautiful home.
    Excellent Mermaid service.
    Dog friendly. Fenced yard for dog.
    I read the previous reviews so I knew to bring a Teflon pan since we would be cooking breakfasts. Otherwise, the kitchen is fully stocked.
    Also, the master bedroom has no hanging closet. There is a three drawer chest and a hall closet with shelves. And the other two bedrooms have closets.
    Porch off master needed cleaning but it was still pollen season.
    The porch off kitchen has an awesome bed swing. Loved it!
    We will definitely be back.
    Thank you for a great 30th anniversary vacation!

    We stayed here for the month of February 2016 and had a wonderful time. We grew up in Savannah and have family and friends here so it was nice to be able to spend time with them during the month. The Brooks Cottage was perfect for us. There was plenty of room when our family and friends came to visit. The location is great...a block from the back river and a couple of blocks to downtown and the beach....great for walking and riding bikes. The sunsets in the evening were amazing...a short walk to the back river. The house was lovely and had everything we needed. It was clean and very well-maintained. The Mermaids were awesome. I called and left a message with a few questions I had and they promptly called me back. Tybee has great restaurants too. Some of our favorites are the Sundae Cafe, North Beach Bar and Grill, 80 East, Spanky's (great chicken fingers and spuds), StingRay's, A-J's Dockside, The Crab Shack, and MacElwee's. We also loved the Tybean Art and Coffee bar....great latte's. If you enjoy a nice breakfast, head over to the Breakfast Club or the Sunrise Restaurant. We brought our yellow lab with us, so we put in quite a few miles walking during the month. There is also a dog park on the island that I took him too. I would definitely recommend the Brooks Cottage. We will be back and will be renting from the Mermaids again and hopefully the Brooks Cottage will be available.

    Brooks Cottage is just a dream for our family. The kiddos love the porch and there is plenty of space for them to be kids. It is super close to the beach (in two different directions) which is great to keep the cars from getting sandy and equally close to downtown shopping and restaurants to avoid having to pay those nasty meters! This was our second stay at Brooks and our kids (4mths - 4 yrs) feel like it is there home. Lots to do with lots of amenities. We will be back! The only thing I wish is that some of the non-stick cookware in the kitchen was in better condition but next year we will just bring our own.

    My husband and I, plus our young adult daughters and boyfriends/husband for various parts of the week, spent a week at Brooks Cottage in mid June. The cottage was beautiful and had everything we needed except was a little short on beach towels; but we had brought some of our own. Although the open concept main level had plenty of room inside, the comfy porches were everyone's favorite place to hang out. The cottage is an easy walk to several different beach areas depending on whether you want quiet or more action. It's also an easy walk to AJ's where we ate a couple times. The mermaids were awesome and a great source of info on restaurants and things to do. In addition to AJ's, other favorite restaurants were the Breakfast Club (AMAZING!), Hucapoo's, and Tybee Social Club. Also, a must do is a trip to Little Tybee with Dave and Renee of Sundial Charters. It was a highlight of the trip for everyone.

    Madeline C from Franklin, TN recommends this vacation rental

    Several years ago I read an article on Mermaid Cottages in Southern Living and after more online research I wanted to visit myself! Having never been to Tybee or Savannah, this trip was definitely on our family vacation list. The appeal for me was the charming decor, old cottage style homes and the fact that the area is so walkable/bikeable and not overcrowded like a lot of other beach destinations. I'm also a huge fan of Mary Kay Andrews and have read all of her books with the exception of Beach Town (her latest). She also has a Mermaid cottage there
    Brooks cottage was wonderfully appointed, making it a very comfortable home away from home. We spent a lot of time on the porches, even napped on the sleeping porch! The kids loved playing ping pong and pool each night and it was a nice walk to the beach.
    The mermaids took great care of us while we were there. The Mermaid coffee was delicious and much needed after our long drive. When we got in late the first night we accidentally locked ourselves out and they were very kind and timely in coming to let us in! There were definitely things that we didn't get to do our first stay on Tybee, but we will definitely be back! Thank you.

    We had a group of sea kayakers working on rough water skills. The house was perfect for group cooking, classroom presentations on the large back porch and for relaxing at the end of the day. This is a well built, well thought out house, nicely decorated and comfortably appointed. It's a fairly new house with all the modern conveniences, but with a nice, old feel, built in the tradition of the old Tybee cottages with wood floors and bead-board walls. The folks who built this house knew what they were doing. What a wonderful place.

    • Manager Responded on 5/9/2015

      Thank you so much for the lovely review! While you were working on your rough water skills did you see us Mermaids splashing around with the dolphins? And porch living and open ceilings is definitely where it's at after a long day. We appreciate your kind words. ~ The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    It was great. It is rare to rent a place on-line and the pictures to be accurate. In most cases the pictures on the internet were taken when the place was new. With Brooks Cottage the pictures were spot on. We really enjoyed the cottage!!

    We stayed in Brooks, a lovely cottage at the south end of Tybee. The weather was wonderful and the water lovely. Unfortunately, Comcast turned off our cable Monday morning. Mermaids and the owner did everything possible to solve the problem but it was off for 4 days. We would have spent more time on the beach but a movie crew blocked our access for days. It was necessary to walk to the next access. Mermaids came out immediately to solve a kitchen problem when we checked in. Frances was most helpful.

    • Manager Responded on 10/22/2014

      Thank you for your review and recommendation for Brooks Cottage. We sincerely apologize about the issues you encountered with the cable and the beach access. Although we did what we could (including a partial refund for the fact that cable TV wasn't available for part of your stay), we are sorry that you had this problem. And, we wish the movie crew had not had to inconvenience you although we had no control over that particular issue. Tybee has become a popular movie location and while we always welcome these opportunities as it is good for the local economy, with that does sometimes come temporary inconveniences. We realize things were not perfect, but we are glad that you still had a lovely stay and enjoyed beautiful weather and beautiful beach! We hope to see you again soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    My sister and I rented two Mermail cottages, side by side, the Southern Cross and Brooks Cottage. It a wonderful vacation. The houses were great, the porches were wonderful, they were the best!! The location of the two homes on the island was ideal. We had a number of beaches in walking distance along with the river.
    We were in walking distance to AJ's , a great restaurant, sort of off the beaten path.
    My car was packed with some items that were never used because both homes had everything that was needed for cooking for a total of 19 people.
    The Mermaids were so accomodating, they made sure we were all tucked in a clean home with great pillows and sheets, they even brought us more hangers for clothing...and we didn't even ask!! Carol Martin was our go to person and did an outstanding job.
    We will be back!!

    We had a wonderful week at Brooks Cottage. The house is conveniently located near the 18th Street beach access. The spacious and well-equipped kitchen made cooking dinner for our gang of teenagers so easy. Loved the 3 screened porches. Please provide sheets for the twin beds on the porch off the master bedroom and a replacement nozzle for the hose outside. While the dining table seats 6 fairly comfortably, another dining area outside would be nice (the small table off the kitchen doesn't work particularly well for anything other than morning coffee). Constructive criticism aside, we will definitely rent Brooks Cottage again!

    Unaware of how busy St. Patrick's Day is in Savannah, I booked flights to meet up with family for a long weekend. When I mentioned how crazy expensive hotel rooms were, a friend recommended I call Mermaid cottages. They were great! The house was beautiful spotless and in a location on Tybee that allowed for walking to town and the beach (and cheaper than two hotel rooms). I will most certainly be back, and will call Mermaid again.

    Beautiful house, well-appointed and furnished. Super clean w/ great light, and lots of decks upstairs and down. Would love to host a gathering of friends and family they next time we're down. A few bugs got in, but it's the tropics, at the beach, so it's to be expected. Plus, we have small kids, so we'd prefer the pests over the pesticides. Some natural remedies would be welcome. Would highly recommend Mermaid Cottages, staff and customer service, and especially Brooks Cottage. Thanks again.

    We LOVED Brooks Cottage. We've rented many houses/condos in many places and this is the best ever. This was truly a home away from home. The house was very clean. The furnishings were better than most beach houses. The proximity to the beach was great for us. Just a 5 minute walk,with more than one choice of entry points.
    It was relaxing just sitting on the porch setting in the morning, reading a book before hitting the beach. The fact that we had three screened porches to choose from was a bonus.
    The house was well equipped with kitchen items, appliances and two washers/dryers!
    Would I recommend this house to others? Well, yes, but maybe not. It's a nice secret to keep for ourselves!

    My wife and our adult children really enjoyed our stay here recently. The location is terrific, walking distance to beaches and restaurants. The porches were wonderful, mornings in the back, evenings on the front. Ground floor had ping pong, billiards,bikes and the grill, which were all used to great enjoyment.

    A couple of cons: The master bedroom had no closet space (locked for owners use) and so I had to stow my gear on the porch outside the bedroom while my wife took the small chest of drawers for herself. Also, the climate control on the main floor barely worked, but by design it was trying to cool a downstairs stairwell, an upstairs stairwell and the main floor. Finally, we had our share of low country insects in the house, but nothing a can of Raid couldnt control.

    Overall, 4 out of five stars for us, felt we got our moneys worth, even for peak season rent.

    My family and I loved the Brooks Cottage! This was our first time on Tybee Island and the cottage had available many of the comforts of home. We absolutely LOVED the crockpot and used it several times. It was so nice to have a cooked meal waiting when we would return from the beach or bicycling. Thank you for all the amenities. The location was close to several beach accesses and both piers. A-J's Dockside restaurant is very close also - at the end of Chatham Avenue. You can see very beautiful sunsets while enjoying dinner. Thank you so much for allowing our two little chihuahuas. They loved the screened front porch; watching people go by. We screened porches were GREAT! We ate out on the back screened porch a couple of times! The mermaids were WONDERFUL folks! Very friendly and very attentive! Loved every minute of our stay and will be back again! We left behind four little "crabbing" sticks with rope, hook and sinker attached for anyone else to enjoy. We left them in the big silver tin basin downstairs next to the pool table. We used them down at Fisherman's Pier. We also left a small blue umbrella for anyone else to enjoy down on the beach.

    This was our family's first trip to Tybee and we had an amazing time. Best beach vacation we ever had and we've been renting beach homes for years. Brooks Cottage was spotless, bright, and comfortable. Plenty of room to spread out and relax, ceiling fans everywhere, and lots of extras you don't often find in rental homes. Like coffee service and soap by the sinks. Great spot on the quiet end of the island. We had a short walk to the beach and our kids enjoyed the boogie boards, skim boards, and beach toys that were available. The Mermaids crew couldn't have been more accommodating! Always on call and ready to do anything to make the stay even better. We will definitely be returning to Brooks Cottage! Thank you Mermaids!

    We loved our 3 night stay at Brooks Cottage in Tybee Island. Loved the location and close walking distance to the inlet and beach. We, the parents, took turns sleeping outside in the screened-in sleeping porch off the master bedroom. Sleeping outside in the evening breeze was great. My 85 year old mum (with a year old hip replacement) walked up and down the stairs with no problems at all. The kitchen was well stocked with everything. The only thing missing was a sponge to clean up with, but the management brought it over quickly with just one phone call to them :)Thank you for sharing your home with us.

    We stumbled upon Brooks Cottage and the Mermaids via an online search. We wanted to "try something different" this year and this was our first experience with Tybee Island. We were extremely pleased with the location of Brooks Cottage (proximity to beaches, walking distance to "downtown", relatively quiet on Chatham Avenue). This is a well-kept "newer" property and is nicely appointed. The porches are just great. So was watching the sunsets from the "fishing pier" out on the back inlet. When not at the beach, our kids liked hanging out at the pool table and ping-pong table underneath the main floor. We were VERY comfortable here. We were extremely pleased with the booking, reservation and follow-up process and service from the Mermaids. Although we had no issues and did not have to call upon them - we definitely felt comfortable in knowing we could if we needed to - both for "house" issues as well as "vacation advice". We enjoyed a day in Savannah (our son loved the Georgia Railroad Museam) and an afternoon at Fort Pulaski...nice side-trips. We hope to return to Tybee and Brooks Cottage some day! PS - I'd come back just for the "Morning Bliss" Coffee!

    The fresh, clean coastal living interior of Brooks Cottage was a perfect fit for my family! It was just a short walk to the beach, the shops, and the restaurants! The screened in porches were awesome for hanging out and enjoying the cool evening ocean breezes! We loved our stay on Tybee Island and at Brooks Cottage!

    Nicole R from Suwanee, GA recommends this vacation rental

    We loved Brooks Cottage and would stay again! Layout of house was perfect for putting our toddler to bed upstairs away from living room noise, screened in porches were great, master suite very comfortable, outdoor shower great for minimizing sand tracked into house. 2 blocks from beach perfect walking distance and convenient location near pier. Very clean and spacious. Very helpful staff. Only suggestions, master bedroom doors to porch need blinds and the valance is very annoying as it gets caught in the door. Also needs large griddle or electric skillet for family style pancake breakfasts. Otherwise, absolutely fantastic!

    • Manager Responded on 7/5/2012

      Thank you for your reviews as well as suggestions! We appreciate your candid comments and this is what allows us to continue improving and continue offering our guests the very best beach vacation experience possible! We are passing along your suggestions rgarding blinds, valance and griddle/skillet. We hope you and your family will visit Tybee Island and Mermaid Cottages again very soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    We had such a lovely stay at Brooks Cottage. It is the everything a beach cottage is...beautful screened porches with comfortable furniture and porch swings. The location was excellent for the beach and neighborhood for biking and walks. I loved cooking in the kitchen and quick access to the back porch for eating or reading. This is our third Mermaid Cottage to stay at and so far our favorite.

      So happy to hear you enjoyed your third stay; and sounds like Brooks was perfect for you! We hope you are already planning your next visit! Call us! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    We had a wonderful relaxing Christmas in TybeeIt was our first trip and I want to come back again.Everything was sparkling and clean at Brooks Cottage. It is a property where the owner has spared no expense to have top of the line fixtures and accents. Beautiful, comfortable and just what a vacation home should be.

    Liz S from Wesley Chapel, FL recommends this vacation rental

    Our two families met at Tybee for the first time. It was a wonderful experience! The house was gorgeous! Casual, comfortable, roomy and looked to be decorated by a professional. It was light, airy and beachy in a lovely tasteful way. I loved the art work in the house, it represented the island and beach perfectly. The sleeping porch was a blast. Everyone fought over who got to sleep there. We also got to bring our dogs, which made the vacation complete. The island is wonderful with beautiful new houses but most of all the super neat historical ones. Being from the gulf coast of Florida, I was surprised how beautiful the beaches were. I love that they are so natural. The proximity to Savannah was great also.
    Great house! Great Island! Will go back as soon as we can!

    My four girlfriends and I just returned from a stay in Brooks' Cottage on Tybee Island. The cottage was convenient to the beaches, restaurants and kayak ramp. The cottage was perfect for us with three bedrooms and decorated so cute. The Mermaid Cottage staff were so nice and accommodating. I highly recommend them. Great place!

    The Brooks Cottage was perfect for having my Grand babies come to town for the Piratefest. We were close by to the activities so we could come home for naps. The porch swing was perfect for snuggling with grand babies and reading them books. We all look forward to renting the Brooks Cottage again.

    We(a group of young ladies)stayed in Brooks Cottage over Labor Day Weekend and I can say, with confidence,that we LOVED it! It had everything that we needed plus some. The location was excellent- we could walk to two beaches on the island and to nearly
    every restaurant/shop. From the cottage, it was only 25 minutes or so to Savannah- easy van cab ride. The propery was immaculate and very well kept. If we come to Tybee Island again- we will be sure to book Brooks Cottage.

    What a wonderful vacation - peaceful, relaxing, unhurried. The house was beautiful - exactly as it looks on the website. Great location - 2 blocks from the ocean, 2 blocks from the inlet. A water spout took out power to Tybee on our last night and the
    sleeping porch came in very handy! I miss my morning coffee on the back porch and my evening wine on the swing out front. Wishing I could fold up Brooks Cottage, put it in my pocket and bring it home. The staff is wonderful; the house is wonderful; the island
    is wonderful. Already planning our next trip to Tybee and will definitely be booking with Mermaid Cottages!

    Salli T from Bremen, GA recommends this vacation rental

    This place was fabulous, but just a few thoughts to make it better:

    (1) The full size bed needs to be replaced with a queen sized bed; (2) there is very limited closet space, so an armoire would be a good addition; (3) in the limited closet space, there are no hangers; and (4) there are no hooks to hang towels on in the master bathroom.

    We look forward to staying here again!!
