Atlantic 1 (formerly Doyle's on the Dunes circa 1930)

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental cottage. Sleeps 6, 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

2 18th Lane Tybee Island, GA 31328 United States

2 18th Lane, Tybee Island, GA, 31328

What an amazing home.

There are views and then there are views. Not only can you watch the sun rise over the ocean, but you can also look back over the south end of Tybee and see the sun set. And a full moon over the ocean is something you want to see!

We have completely re decorated this vintage family home. The cottage sits directly at the end of 18th Lane which is a private lane.

We also are big supporters of Sea Turtles and these two cottages are "sea turtle friendly". We have installed sea turtle safe lights and want to be sure all our guests know "Lights out for sea turtles" during sea turtle season May 1st- Oct 1st. We need you to be sure you have the blinds or shades pulled after 9 PM so sea turtles can nest safely and then the eggs can hatch and the babies go towards the brightest light- which should be the ocean, not our cottage. Don't moon our turtles! A portion of each rental; both Atlantic 1 and Atlantic 2, goes to support Georgia Sea Turtle projects.

Complimentary off-street parking for 3 cars.

Complimentary WiFi.

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.

    Roxanne B from MOORE, South Carolina recommends this vacation rental

    Mermaid worked with us on check-in details and some lost eyeglasses after we checked out. The 'Mermaids' provide wonderful customer service!

    The rental was in a great location with easy proximity to the beach and views. The house was very clean. It was the first time we've stayed at the beach and NOT seen any Palmetto Bugs!

    The one suggestion for improvement is a sign in the kitchen that lets guests know that the flatware is under the microwave. Since it's in the dining room, I looked for quite a while before finding it.

    Robin D from Acton, MA recommends this vacation rental

    Had a really nice 4 day stay on Tybee Island with my mom, two sisters, my daughter and my niece. Weather was blustery but beautiful. It was quiet and private for the older generation but easy access to the night life for the younger crowd. Cottage was charming. Kitchen a little tight Spent as much time as possible on the deck which was warm and sunny most of the day. Would have appreciated beach towels and beach chairs. We flew down for this visit and there is a limit to what you can bring. Was thrilled to learn that the Tybee Fire Dept would loan us a beach chair/wheel chair that enabled my mom (90)to get out to the water. Path to the beach was a bit challenging and overgrown but the view of the water was beautiful.

    We have been at this wonderful cosy cottage in Tybee Island with our family. Every day We had our breakfast on the balcony and enjoyed the sound from the sea and birds. To the beach you only need one step. It's a great location when you want to enjoy the beach vacation. We also could find a lot of animals on the beach. It's also nice even for small children. Twice we took a small excursion to Savannah, which we also love. We'd like to come back to the Tybee Island asap!!!

    Amanda G from WEST COLUMBIA, South Carolina recommends this vacation rental

    This house was perfect for us as a family traveling with 6 adults (2 grandparents) and 2 children under 2 years old! We loved the open concept of the house since you could see all the way from the kitchen through the living room. The beds were super comfy and there was plenty of furniture for everyone to sit comfortably, including on the beautiful deck outside! Sunrises were gorgeous! It's not a long walk to the beach, but is kinda tough because of having to walk through so much beach sand. Since the house is located on the far end of the Tybee strip, the beach wasn't as crowded, which was nice. Overall, we LOVED the house and would definitely stay again!

    We discovered Mermaid Cottages and Tybee Island five years ago and have returned every year since! Doyle’s is bright and cheery and makes our stay at the beach feel like a home away from home. We love the view from Doyle’s deck, which overlooks the dunes and provides a beautiful view of the beach and rolling waves. And when we felt like cooling off, we strolled along the private path from the house to the beach to swim and splash in the tidal pools. Thanks again for another wonderful family vacation!

    Absolutely love this property. We stayed for a week in early June and had a wonderful time. Love the small cottage feel, very "beachy", unlike some of the mammoth houses going up in the area. Easy walk to the beach, great deck for watching stars and listening to the waves crashing. Rent it while you still can -- saw a For Sale sign on it last weekend. I hope the new owners do not tear it down for something more modern. It would be a crime to lose this 1920's gem!

    Anne H from Hebron, NE - Nebraska recommends this vacation rental

    My daughter and I absolutely loved our time at Doyle's on the Dunes. The location was perfect for us. It was wonderful to be so close to the beach. We really appreciated the cottage feel of the home; the outdoor deck was our favorite part of the house.
    We also liked that it was within walking distance of the pier and surrounding district, yet it was far enough away from the crowd to make for a peaceful getaway.
    Linda was great about checking in with us before and during our stay to make sure that we had everything that we needed. She was always pleasant and accommodating.
    The cottage has all of the amenities needed, but you do need to bring your own shampoo and conditioner. This was a small blip for us since flying in without checked luggage restricted the amount of liquids we could bring. However there is a store within driving distance that has all the basics needed for your stay.
    Overall, we had a lovely time and were able to relax and rejuvenate our souls.

It's a short walk to Tybrisa to visit the pier, shops, restaurants & marine center. Mermaid Jan was great to work with & she made sure we had everything we needed.

    Dortha J from Winterville, GA recommends this vacation rental

    All four of us were very impressed with the property. A few things could be improved and that is some of the windows could not be opened. The weather was lovely and we did not need AC. The blinds were in rather poor condition and one set pulled down off the wall when I tried to raise them. The staff took care immediately, however, which was very professional. The new house being built behind the deck will seem intrusive when finished. We think it would be improved by building a pergola on that end to avoid direct vision with the other house. None of this spoiled our vacation and we all completely relaxed and had a wonderful time.

    I chose Doyles on the Dunes from the Mermaid's website because we wanted an ocean view for our visit to Tybee Island. The house was exactly as depicted. It's a 1930's charmer with beautiful ocean views from the deck, sun room, and two of the bedrooms. We had a wonderful stay on Tybee and would love to come back. I've already recommended Doyles and the Mermaids to several friends. Nice work Mermaids - Thanks!

Mermaid Cottages provides exceptional customer service; the ladies are friendly, professional, and very accommodating.

    My husband I had not been to Tybee island since we were in college, so we were pleasantly surprised with both the island and the house we rented. Although Doyles is very close to nearby houses, it seemed quiet and secluded. We loved the large sunroom and deck, and found the original wood flooring and paneling charming. The weather was perfect (Easter week 2014), and we enjoyed beautiful sunrises, sunsets and visits from all kinds of birds. Unlike other homes we've rented, the house had pretty much everything we needed and felt like a home, not someone's rental property. The Mermaids staff were super friendly and helpful, and even stopped by with a map and restaurant recommendations. Tybee is a much more charming place than I remembered, and we really enjoyed our stay. There were just a couple of little things I'd want the visitors to the house to know about, like the oven and stove burners that heat up verrrry slowly, and the lock on the laundry room door that we had trouble unlocking. We reported that so it's probably been fixed by now. Also, there is no landline in the house, but there is WiFi, and cell reception on the island is pretty good. All in all, we had a wonderful stay and can't wait to come back!

    Had a great time with 4) 17,18 yr old teenagers. Located directly on the beach and close to the pier and pavilion (hot spots for the girls). I believe those girls explored every square inch of that island via foot and bike. The girls' last school spring break will be remembered fondly! Must note we received a personal visit the day we arrived to make sure all was well, as well as, a phone call from Carol later in the week. The mermaids do a great job!

    This was our second visit to Doyles on the Dunes and it was another wonderful trip. We were warmly greeting by one of the Mermaids when we arrived, and she gave us great suggestions for our time on Tybee. I would second everything I said in my review a year ago, just a perfect place to spend Spring Break. The weather even cooperated this year! We spent a lot of time on the front deck with its amazing views and shelter from the sometimes strong winds. I also have to say that the bed in the master bedroom is the most comfortable I've ever slept in! It was hard to drag myself out to watch the beautiful sunrises, but worth it.

    Our whole family thanks the Mermaids for such an amazing experience and will look forward to our return someday!

    We had a fantastic time staying in the Doyles on the Dunes. It is a charming place with a fantastic beach front view! It was so relaxing! We enjoyed time working, relaxing, playing and breathing in the sea air. It is the perfect place to get away from it all .

    We also found it to be a great location. We walked to restaurants and a small grocery shop, had great food delivered and visited Savannah on a couple of occasions.

    The whole process of renting the cottage went so smoothly, we were in such good hands. We were pleased to find an easy to use lock box so we could arrive late in the evening and lights on to make the cottage feel extra welcoming. So many little touches that made our working vacation so relaxing and comfortable. We will definitely return again!

    Everything was fine. The view and the location was the best part. Suggestions, ...fix the downstairs shower in the laundry room. Can't tell where water is going and it drips terribly. Water is too precious to waste. Kitchen could use some utensils, plastic wrap and foil. Also, why NO screens on any windows or a door. Part of the ocean is hearing it. Check out time @ 10 a.m. Is unreasonable. 11 or noon would still give time to clean for check in.

    • Manager Responded on 6/5/2013

      Thank you for your review and feedback! We are delighted that you had fun at Doyle's at the Beach! Yes, we agree; that view is awesome! We appreciate your feedback and letting us know about the shower drip and we will have our maintenance department take a look at that ASAP. We will also pass along to the owner your suggestions regarding screens and kitchen utensils/supplies. We do need to let you know that we at Mermaid Cottages have a very high expectation for cleanliness; we want our cottages to be "Mermaid clean" for each and every guest. Additionally, as you might imagine, cleaning a whole cottage is much more time-intensive than just a motel room cleaning. We realize that motels offer an 11 AM checkout; we at Mermaid Cottages want our housekeepers to have the time needed to make sure the cottage is spotless and sparkling for each and every guest; hence the 10 AM check out. Sometimes, if we do not have a guest checking in the same day you check out, we are able to offer a later check out; we encourage our guests to check with us if a later check out is needed...we are more than happy to extend that option if we can. We hope you will plan to visit Tybee Island and Mermaid Cottages again soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    This cottage is absolute perfection! Of course its best feature is the view. Nothing but dunes and ocean out the east and south windows, you feel surrounded by the water. The pictures on the website are beautiful, but not even they can do this view justice!

    The cottage itself is wonderful. Feels like a cottage from days gone by -- so relaxing, but updated with beautiful linens and towels. The colors just make you happy as soon as you enter. The cottage was spotless, I was very impressed with how clean it was especially being on the beach with all that sand! Kitchen was very well equipped and the dishes were again colorful and fun like the rest of the place. It was also great to have a washer/dryer.

    The location is wonderful. The beach was not crowded like it was closer to the pier, but it is close to everything. We rented bikes and were able to bike along the beach at low tide and all over the island. It was fun to see all the Mermaid Cottages as we were biking along the streets.

    When we had questions the Mermaids got right back to us via email. I really cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our vacation in Tybee. I just wish we didn't live so far away so we could return sooner! But we will be back. We felt completely spoiled.

    Walking into this beautiful nostalgic cottage was refreshing - I think we smelled Suntan Lotion fragrances (welcoming) when we came in (like Sea & Ski when we were kids) but the house was impeccably clean. We loved the old pine walls with the beautiful artwork. And we mostly are concerned if the beds are strong sturdy and comfy-and those options were met with high marks. The Ralph Lauren linens were a welcoming refreshing Plus for us so we felt this should receive high marks. Linens and sleeping and relaxing makes such a huge decision on how you feel and breathe on an anniversary weekend. And this was a '10' in my book instead of a high 5.....just sayin' it was great to have Mermaid coffee bar in the mornings and watch the sun come up over the horizon of the water, spectacular show at 7:00 am and loved the deck and palms blowing as the sun rose over the water. You Mermaids have a crafted out a "niche" market in how you make your guests feel and welcoming them to Tybee. Our first visit to Tybee was wonderful. We visited with locals a great little back river seafood restaurant and we couldn't have been happier with your choice for us in a cottage. Thank you for all of the hospitality. We only wish our adult children could have been with us, they would have loved the remembering the days we had in a nostalgic setting like this when they were little......the pine paneled walls, white billowy curtains, large living room porch and beautiful deck with a 6-seat table for eating outside in the breeze. Wow, thank you for everything you did for us. We'll be back; and this has to be on my list for my next 'GIRLFRIEND'S WEEKEND'........

    Can't believe places like Doyles still exist! It's like grandma's cute little cottage on a million dollar beachfront lot. Too many accolades to list here but I thoroughly encorage anyone who is looking for the ultimate beach vacation to consider Doyles. The only downside is that with all that Tybee has to offer at our doorstep we had a hard time getting out butts off that patio! Guess will have to be more adventurous next time.

    This house is so laid back & comfortable & the location can't be beat! We enjoyed the large front deck & sitting room windows which made it ideal for this mommy with 3 little ones, the youngest being just 7weeks old. I was able to sit in the a/c with a beach view without taking baby out in the heat. The Mermaids were so accommodating & even tipped us off to a sea turtle excavation that was a once in a lifetime experience. We will be back & would stay at Doyle's again in a heartbeat! Thanks Mermaids! Wonderful stay as always :)

    The location was ideal. Everyday, we walked out to the beach, staked our spot and easily maneuvered to and fro within a matter of minutes. The sound of the ocean lulled us to sleep every night. The construction, however, woke us every weekday. Being that we only had one real bathroom (the one in the basement was creepy as it was a musty basement) was difficult when we had family over for a day at the beach. The porch was beautiful and the sunsets were to die for... I would definitely stay again. As we did two different beach houses this year, we really got to see the Mermaids in action. They were a gem. I will only rent from them going forward. They were responsive and very agreeable. A delight to work with...

    • Manager Responded on 1/16/2013

      Thank you for your review! We appreciate the positive comments regarding Mermaid Cottages! We are thrilled you enjoyed Doyle's on the Beach! There is a home being built next door and we are making every effort to let guests know of potential for noise; we never know when they will be or will not be working there. Doyle's does have only one full bath upstairs and one half bath but guests find the downstairs showers great for showering off after a day on the beach! We look forward to seeing you again soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

We were very close to all entertainment, shopping, the strand, and comforting walks on the beach.

    Couldn't have been happier with our stay at Doyle's on the Beach! The home was perfect for our family and the location was even better. We had a mix of an 11year old and three teenage children and there was never one word of someone complaining they were bored! The only complaint I have is that we had to leave. We as a family have created a memory that none of us will ever forget and we can't wait to go back. Mermaid Cottages treated us fantastic and were exceptional in helping us find the perfect home!

    a guest from Savannah, GA recommends this vacation rental

    We have stayed at these two cottages (the Doyles or Crabby Jo's) a number of times in the past, and we absolutely love them. We prefer the south end - away from the mobs of people at the pier, plenty of shallow runnels and pools for the little ones to play in, and plenty of parking for our local friends to come out and join us for a day on the beach.
    Doyles on the Dunes did not dissapoint. It has been updated since we last stayed, and we found all the appointments to be nicely done. The A/C works great, the sunroom has wonderful views, and the deck and the deck chairs were perfect for cocktails and watching the stars come out. It is exactly as it was advertised, complete with downstairs showers and laundry. I do wish the property management company had specifically pointed out there was a separate key to access the basement - we assumed for the first day that it was the owner's closet.
    We had a wonderful stay and look forward to returning next year.

    We loved the house. Only complaints would be the back door wouldn't lock easily, the washer downstairs kept going out of balance (severely) and there were quite a few bugs in the house. Also, the bathtub would not drain the entire time we were there.

    We have stayed on Tybee for vacations several times and this was the perfect spot! Close enough to walk to anything you might need but tucked into the beach enough to give you privacy. This cottage has a comfortable coastal 1940's feeling that leaves you feeling relaxed from the moment you arrive. It's decorated and stocked with everything you need making it a home away from home. We will definitely return to Doyle's on the Beach!

    Doyles is the ideal location on Tybee. You can BE at the beach without ever leaving the deck or the sunroom for that matter! The ocean views are incredible and access to the beach is a step out the door. The ocean practically surrounds the property, providing views from almost every room in the house. The house is clean and well maintained. The towels, bedding, dishes and cookware are all first-rate.The Mermaid staff was never summoned, but I was well aware they would come at a moment's notice if needed. I look forward to returning one day.

    Pam M from Arlington, VA recommends this vacation rental

    We felt like we'd won the lottery when we arrived at Doyles on the Beach (or "on the Dunes" as the house's sign proclaims). 300 degree views of ocean, dunes, palm trees and Little Tybee from the spacious deck and the living room, water views from 2 of the 3 bedrooms, step off the deck onto the dunes, zero street noise at the end of this private lane. The cottage is artfully decorated in cheerful, well-coordinated colors, with comfortable upholstery, imaginative accessories, thick towels and beautiful linens. We found everything we could possibly want in the kitchen, right down to coffee, filters and sweeteners (OK, so if you wanted to go way over the top, a one-day supply of creamers would really be amazing for those arriving late the first night), and were delighted to find washer and dryer, extra showers and toilet and plenty of room for bike storage downstairs. This is an older family cottage with lots of traditional charm, and we wouldn't change it. That said, visitors should be prepared for the fact that the bedroom sizes don't allow for a king size bed (which would have been great for me and my 6'4" husband), and the cunning and really adorable half bath is fitted into what is also a walk through closet between two bedrooms. It's brilliantly done and the skylight makes it work well--just be ready for something a little quirky! We were there for spring break and were concerned on our first night to see that construction had begun on a house next door (out of the view line to the water, thankfully). We got really lucky, though: the only work they did while we were there the first week of April was pour concrete for the foundation, so we enjoyed the deck in great peace.

    This is a beautiful and restful location. The view is stunning. There is plenty of room for the family to sprawl out and relax. The kitchen was extraordinarily well-stocked. We swam with dolphins right out in front of the cottage! This was just what we were hoping for.

    Relatives of the owners did come by to use the beach and were surprised to find us at the property.

    Tucked into the dunes on the south end of Tybee, Doyle's was THE perfect beach cottage. My bedroom had a beach/ocean view and a subtle glow kind of wake-up call about 15 minutes before sunrise each morning. I got my clothes on and was able to enjoy the sun waking up with sea birds. Heavenly.

    Doyle's itself has three bedrooms, a fully-equipped galley kitchen, a spacious dining area, great gathering area and awesome deck.

    The Mermaid Cottages are all very cool. Doyle's on the Beach is worth the price for a memory that will last a lifetime.

    Doyles on the Beach is a classic Tybee Beach house. This is the way life on the beach should be. All the rooms are decorated with much loving care. The view of the ocean was breathe taking. We watched the sunrise every morning on the large deck. Also, an unexpected view of Little Tybee was an added surprise from the deck as well. Oh, did I mention it was a full moon during our stay as well. So, we also enjoyed watching the moonrise from our deck as well. We had immediate beach access and were able to grab our surfboards and walk to the surf! A beautiful spot and would be perfect for 3 couples or a large family.

We arrived late on a Friday night, and by Saturday afternoon, the property management company was calling to ensure that we arrived without problem and to check to see if we needed anything. It was completely unexpected and a great touch. Thanks!!

    A fantastic location and classic beach house make for a great time on Tybee Island! The view of the beach from the huge deck has to be among the best on Tybee. You're a few steps away from the ocean, and just a few blocks from the restaurants and nightlife.
    The huge sun room gives the same panoramic view from the inside as from the deck. Very comfortable throughout the house. And a class-A organization running things.

    Location, location, location. Hard to beat the views in this cottage, with a nice deck to enjoy them from, or a quick walk through the dunes to the beach. Sunrise with coffee on the deck is a must. The only drawback is that for the price, you might expect a bit more luxury inside the house. But if a cute little cottage on the beach is your thing, then this is your spot.
