Newly renovated, including all-new kitchen with stainless steel appliances, updated bathrooms, plank tile flooring throughout, fresh paint and air conditioning unit.


The cottage is ideal for families, girls' weekends or even just a getaway for 2. This house is also directly next door to Crabby Pirate, so you can have a larger group stay together, but separate.

Sometimes, dolphins will entertain you as they swim near the dock looking for fish. Experience the ebb and flow of tides....


The back yard is fully fenced in- great for small children and small dogs. The covered outdoor patio with ceiling fan and festive white-strung lights faces the marsh for incredible sunsets.

    I was unable to go because of a family emergency so my husband hosted our California family. They all reported an enjoyable stay. Some furniture was worn. Ceiling fan and light failed to work in one room (user error?) my husband says he'd go back so that's a great review in my book. Stuff happen!

    • Manager Responded on 6/25/2017

      Thanks so much for staying with the Mermaids! We will certainly have our ops team take a look at the ceiling fan. Let us know when we can help with your next Tybee time! The Mermaids.

    We had a wonderful time at Tybee! Horsepen Cottage was perfect for us. We especially liked having the dock to sit & have coffee in the morning or enjoy the sunset. The beds were super comfortable; kitchen had good assemblage of utensils, pots, & dishes. Mermaid Cottages staff were helpful and easy to work with & I especially like the app for check in/check out.

    Michelle G from Newnan, GA does not recommend this vacation rental.

    While the size was sufficient and we didn't mind being farther from the beach (the area was very quiet at night), the pictures are MUCH nicer than the actual property! The kitchen was run down and dated but at least the appliances all worked except for the fridge which struggled to keep our food cold. The AC also struggled mightily to keep the property cool even at night - management did provide fans which helped. The dock could use some love and lights for night, and you would have be very creative to get a kayak in the water for all the marsh grass growing at the end of the dock. The beds were very hard and both my husband and son were bitten by something in the bed at night. The outside shower came in handy and it was nice. The neighbors were very sweet. This place could use an update, desperately! I won't stay at this property again. Management was responsive but also lots of excuses for the fridge and AC condition.

    This was our second visit as a family to Tybee. The Horsepen Creek Cottage was very accommodating with our family needs. It was nice having the dock on the marsh as it provided some additional educational experiences for us. We had a visit from a raccoon, several lizards, and various birds. The beach supplies were a great help for us too.

    Deirdre S from Athens, GA recommends this vacation rental

    My family and I spent an incredibly relaxing break at Horsepen Creek Cottage. We loved everything about our place!

    Horsepen Creek Cottage is situated on the marsh. It has a dock, which is an excellent location to watch the sun rise and set, as well as bird watch. We saw herons, osprey, and other birds. There is also a shaded patio which is a wonderful place to dine, read, or work.

    We loved the location, which was quiet and removed from the bustle of the town. It takes about fifteen minutes to walk to the beach- the perfect length for an after-dinner stroll.

    The cottage itself is very comfortable. The kitchen was well-stocked with cooking tools. The living area was a great place to hang out. And the beds in the four bedrooms were firm. The neighborhood was quiet. We slept very well. I highly recommend this rental.

    The dock is a wonderful place to have early morning cup of coffee..

    The cottage was in excellent condition considering its age & that it's constantly rented. There were 3 small things I'd like to bring to your attention . There was no light bulb in the living room lamp. The kitchen light nearest the sink would not turn off. There was no switch we could find that operated it. The floor of the stall shower was very slippery. We had a great time and would love to come back sometime.

    Had a great time with the grandchildren. We loved the outdoor space at the cottage. The outdoor shower was GREAT when we came back from the beach. The only downside (and it has nothing to do with the house or management) is that previous guests were not considerate and did not "scoop the poop". So it was a little messy if we weren't careful when we walked in some of the pinestraw areas.

    • Manager Responded on 6/15/2015

      thankyou so much for your feedback! and thank you for letting us know about the dog poop from the previous guests. we'll b sure to keep a better eye out for the details like this . thx for the heads up!

    We couldn't have been happier with Horsepen Creek Cottage. Just as described, it's a versatile space that is perfect for 2 but can easily house 6-8. There were 4 of us on this trip, plus our dog , and we're already making plans to come back later this summer with a few more. Clean, comfy and plenty of room. Spacious kitchen and living area, two full baths, nice bedrooms. The best part of all -- the dock and back yard area. There's a wonderful, covered and gated area in the back - perfect for a cookout -- and the long, private dock is the ideal spot to enjoy the breeze, cocktails and conversation. We were very pleased with our Mermaid Cottage experience and definitely recommend this cottage!

    We actual rented 3 mermaid cottages and all were great. The older guest stayed at Horsepen rental and loved the layout and the outside yard and dock. Everything was clean and all of the beds slept well. We were part of a bridal party, and it was so spacious that the photographer actual took a lot of the brides photos at our place along with hers which was Madelyns Cottage. All of the staff was so accommodating, from Carol who showed us the properties and gave excellnt recommendations based on our needs to Denise who helped us find vendors for the wedding.

    My family (my husband and I, our 10 year old son, our dog, and my parents)stayed at Horsepen Creek Cottage and Dock for 7 nights. We loved sitting out on the dock watching the tides come in and out. We observed the birds, fish and crabs while enjoying the peacefulness out on the water. The layout of the house was perfect for allowing some of us to sleep in and others to get up to enjoy their morning coffee without disturbing anyone. The Mermaids provide the VERY BEST in guest services. Mermaids Jan and Carol were both extremely helpful while we were planning our vacation. They had wonderful recommendations for things to do and places to eat in Tybee and Savannah. We especially loved our Sundial Charters Boat tour to Little Tybee Island. We will return to Tybee and will definitely only rent cottages through Mermaid Cottages!

    Our family vacation was great. Each of us found something that we especially enjoyed. All of us especially enjoyed the marsh. We watched the tides coming in and going out everyday. Did not realize how interesting that could be. Watching the wildlife from the dock over the marsh was a relaxing way to spend a part of each day.

      We are so happy to hear that you had a great family vacation at Horsepen Creek Cottage & Dock! Yes, that dock and marsh wildlife is definitely a favorite! We hope you will plan a return visit very soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    Bill T from Dahlonega, GA recommends this vacation rental

    We planned on grilling a good amount while on the Island. The grills were both pretty worn out. Replacing once at the beginning of every season would be a improvement at very little expense. We had to delay our check in due to plumbing issues; but the staff gave us a "heads up" and we were able to adjust our plan.

    • Manager Responded on 7/24/2013

      Thank you for your review and feedback. We apologize for your check-in delay due to plumbing issues and appreciate your understanding. We will pass along your suggestion regarding a replacement for the grill to the homeowner. We always value feedback from our guests as this is what allows us to continue to improve and offer the very best beach vacation experience possible. We invite you back and hope you will plan a return visit to Tybee Island and Mermaid Cottages! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    kristine b from San Juan, Puerto Rico recommends this vacation rental

    My family stayed here for almost 2 weeks and we had a blast. Got some bikes from FAT TIRE bikes on Butler Ave and we didnt even have to bring our rental car anyplace on the island. The dock was great for late afternoon/evening gatherings. Beds were very comfortable. Rooms being located in the back part of the house with a door between the kitchen and the hallway made it very private for anybody that likes to sleep in and not hear the rest of the family in the dining area. We were highly satisfied with this street, neighbors, and overall conditions of the rental. Great vacation for all of us!

    My in-laws, mother, husband, son, and I rented Horsepen Creek Cottage and Dock for a week in June and every one of us had the time of our lives. The cottage itself is beautiful, well maintained, and located in a great neighborhood. We cooked out in the back almost every night and watched the tide come in. We could walk to the beach in less than 15 minutes or drive around the corner in less than 3. It was a relaxing vacation for our family and we made memories that will last forever. Thank you for your hospitality and we will see you again soon!

    Our entire family, including our dogs, really enjoyed our stay at Horsepin Cottage! The house was located in a quiet neighborhood. Horsepin was maintained very well- clean and comfortable. It was also well stocked with all the essentials needed to enjoy our stay. We loved sitting on the dock and enjoyed fishing when the tides were high. Thank you, Mermaid's, for your hospitality! We hope to make this an annual weekend for our family!

    Everything was great! There was a problem with the wi fi but it was resolved very quickly. The tech guy was friendly and professional. He came to the cottage and got the problem "fixed". The dock/pier lights did not work but that did not really affect our stay. The fenced in back yard was wonderful to have since we took our dogs. It was nice to be able to let the dogs out and sit out back. The neighbors were friendly. We would stay there again.

    This was our 3rd vacation stay with Mermaid Cottages. We loved everything about Horsepen Creek Cottage. It had everything we needed and the layout, etc. was perfect for our family of six. We also really enjoyed the dock and marsh view. It's a healthy walk to the beach, which didn't bother us at all. Would love to stay here again!

    Our children actually stayed in Horseshoe and we were next door in Crabby Pirate. Because of space and having a dishwasher we cooked and ate at Horseshoe. It is a very comfortable cottage and the dock over the marsh is a great gathering place. My grandchildren loved the outdoor shower. I would reccommend this cottage and also renting the two cottages, Horsepen and Crabby Pirate, for a large family.

    My husband and I treated our son, wife and three grandchildren to a Tybee get-away. Unfortunately, we chose the hottest weekend ever, but despite the heat we had a great time. The house was very kid friendly and had everything we needed. A bit far from the beach, but the dock was nice, too.
