Welcome to A Shore Thing!

1207 6th Ave Tybee Island, GA Ground level coastal cottage. PET FRIENDLY. Cheerful and bright updated 1949 Tybee Island vintage beach cottage. This ground level, tin roofed cottage, on Tybee’s southeastern end, is cottage living at its finest with plenty of gathering space for guests. Updated February 2011 with a new AC/Heating Unit, new tiled shower in Master Bathroom and two new Ballard Design Wing Chairs and new sofa in Living Room. Cable television in Living Room and each of the three bedrooms, and Hi Speed Internet and WIFI provided. Pet Friendly, with a natural wood fenced-in yard in the back and on both sides of the property, and a classic wooden white picket fence bordering 6th Avenue in front of the cottage. A large screened-in porch off the living room has an extendable futon that can be used to sleep an additional person. The three bedrooms include two Queen, & one Full sized beds sleeping seven (if you use the porch). Outside, on 6th Ave and Chatham Ave, there is abundant trees and lush vegetation, both common on the property and the Back River area. There is a gas grill in the backyard, and hot/cold outside shower. The two largest bedrooms have door access to the backyard. The cottage is a three short block walk to the back river beach, fishing pier and kayak launch, and a short five block walk to the front ocean. The southeastern end of Tybee Island is great for long leisurely walks, and bike riding on the island and on the beach. Take in the gorgeous colors of dusk at sunset over the Back River and be adventurous... bike down to the ocean early for sunrise. Restaurants(AJ’s is barely a two block walk), and shopping(remember Tybee Island is small, quaint and intimate, only 3/4 mile wide and about 3+ miles long) are also in walking/biking distance. 6th Ave, Tybee Island was also the location where Miley Cyrus’s 2010 movie, The Last Song, filmed all the church scenes.

    Connie C from Saint Michael, Minnesota recommends this vacation rental

    This cottage is very sweet. It has a lovely private fenced patio. It's truly vintage and we enjoyed our stay there tremendously. The Mermaid Cottage folks are very responsive and do an excellent job. There is only one suggestion I would make for the owner and that is to provide at least a couple of adirondack or other chairs so guests can sit outside on that fabulous patio and enjoy the wonderful sunshine and beautiful evenings with a glass of wine.

    • Manager Responded on 4/14/2014

      Thank you for your review and recommendation for A Shore Thing Cottage! We are so happy to hear what an enjoyable stay you had! We thank you for your feedback and will pass along your suggestion regarding chairs for the patio. We invite you back and hope to see you again very soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    I have stayed with Mermaid for over 15 years. The cottages (we have stayed in over 10)are always great, no matter which one we choose or is available. Denise is my favorite Mermaid.

    David J from Lenoir City, Tennessee recommends this vacation rental

    We really enjoyed the house. It looked like the pictures and my wife and daughter thought it was very cute. The only problem we encountered was with the plumbing in the bathroom (sewage backup into the shower). Mermaid Cottages were prompt in taking care of the problem with someone coming out to the house and assessing the problem. We went to Savannah for the afternoon and returned later to find the problem all taken care of. It was otherwise a very nice vacation!

    • Manager Responded on 10/22/2013

      Thank you for your review! We are so happy to hear how much you enjoyed A Shore Thing! We are so sorry there were plumbing issues when you were there but we're glad we were able to get the issue resolved for you right away! We invite you back and hope to see you again very soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    Leslie M from Greenbelt, MD recommends this vacation rental

    My husband and I just spent a week on Tybee Island for the second time. Tybee Island is our second favorite beach in the U.S. It's is relaxing and "A Shore Thing" was a wonderful home to stay in for our week. Diane Kaufman and her staff run a world class vacation rental business. Our home was beautifully furnished and incredibly clean. It was like staying in a 5 star hotel elsewhere in the country. But we had more - a wonderful porch, an incredibly beautiful beach and the most incredible sunsets on the back river which was only 1 block from our home.

    • Manager Responded on 8/26/2013

      Thank you for your review! We're so glad to hear how much you enjoyed your stay at A Shore Thing! Yes, you can't beat having a wonderful porch and incredible sunsets to enjoy right there at your cottage! Definitely a 5-star plus experience! We hope you will plan a return visit very soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    Suzanne G from Nashville, TN recommends this vacation rental

    My family and I stayed at A Shore thing for a week, and had a wonderful time. The house was bright with cute decorations. We loved the screened in porch, and the location allowed us to have fun on both ends of the island. It was our first time renting a house instead of a hotel room, and we would come back in a heartbeat!

    • Manager Responded on 6/21/2013

    We had a great time on Tybee. There was so much to do. Our cottage was adorable and very comfortable. The back yard is completely fenced in and we never worried about letting our dog out. I'm ready to go back!

    Everything was just right! We took our bikes and rode all over the island within a couple of hours. The house is adorable, was very neat and clean and had everything we needed--just like the pics, and the mermaid staff was very attentive, called once we got settled in to see if we needed anything and responsive to our request in getting the Wi-fi set up with our daughter's I-pad. We would definitely stay here again and stay in any Mermaid Cottage. Great Experience!!

    My two daughters and I decieded to have Christmas this year at the beach. We knew of Tybee Island, but had never been there. Mermaid Cottage Rentals made the whole renting process easy and affordable. The cottage was clean, well appointed and met our needs to a tee.
    Will be sure to go back.
