    The cottage is great and we enjoyed our stay here. Beds slept great and we have stayed at other places not Mermaid Cottages where the beds have been uncomfortable.The cottage was clean when we arrived. The deck/patio is a great outdoor space and the charcoal grill was utilized during our stay. We hope to be back next year at Livin the Dream. We made some great family memories.

    This home was perfect for us. 5 adults and 1 baby stayed here. The house easily accommodated all of us. We also had family that was staying in Savannah and often had up to 10 adults for dinner. The outdoor and indoor seating accommodated us for all of our social interactions. The location was ideal, an easy 3 block walk to the beach.

    Our rental experience was nothing less than perfect! The house was in amazing condition. Me and the girls said all weekend the pictures just don't do it justice! It was perfect for our girls weekend. Just a short walk to the beach, and the shuttle to Savannah. I want to give a big thanks to Jennifer for always calling and checking on us, and also giving us the best tips for our stay in the city! Not only was she kind, she was more helpful than anyone I spoke with the whole vacation. She went well above her duties to make sure our stay was perfect, not just at the home, but the experience as well. I would recommend this to anyone an everyone!

    Erin G from Mount Peasant, South Carolina recommends this vacation rental

    We have stayed at Livin the Dream several times. It is always a great time for us.Tybee is a special place. It is relaxing and easy to get around.
    This time we did notice that the "starter items" seemed less than ever. Ther we fewer hand towels, no dish soap, and fewer trash bags. It may be that we just don't remember these not being provided...
    Two areas of concern this trip were a slowly draining sink in the 1/2 bath and the shower curtain being too short causing water to pool on the floor in the full bath.
    I have no doubt that we will be back,but hope these issues might be addressed.

    We had an awesome week at 305 Jones. We rented 401 Jones also and had all three of our children and their spouses with us for a mini reunion. They all wanted to visit "grandma's house" again. We spend days visiting Savannah and Tybee, eating at our old favorites. Nights were spend around the large table playing games and putting puzzles together. We had a blast.

    Joseph G from Absecon, NJ recommends this vacation rental

    This property is located a short walk from the beach on the north end of the island. It was a perfect location for beach time, and a short walk to the grocery store. The home was well equipped for mealtimes, including pie and cookie baking! The bedrooms were spacious enough to place a portacrib in each. Indeed we took 3 babies under 21 months to Tybee and still had a great time! The outdoor shower was wonderful for cleaning off prior to coming in the house. We visited the lighthouse, farmers market, attended a family wedding at the Main pier and many shops. Spent a delightful day in Savannah which is a short drive away. We cannot speak to area restaurants as with a toddler and pair of 3 month olds we did not visit one! Yes, you can thank us for that. We hope to make this an annual visit. Enjoy your time at Tybee Island, the Mermaids will take good care of you!

    Because of allergies and previous bad experiences with other companies, we usually look for properties that are pet-free. But we decided to roll the dice and stay at Livin' the Dream and couldn't have been happier! The house was perfect for our family and had everything we needed for a great week, with plenty of room for everyone. The floors need a good cleaning and the top bunk bed was full of sand, but otherwise everything was clean and comfortable.

We used the board games. Nice variety. Our three grandkids enjoyed playing with the toy trucks! It was very family friendly, family welcoming! We emailed about departing on Sunday and leaving our vehicles there. Diane got back to me that since they didn't have anyone checking in on Sunday we could wait and check out at 1pm. We really appreciated that! :)

    Very nice property and Mermaid Cottages totally rocks! Awesome experience from the first phone call to reserve, all the way through check-out. If I had to nit-pick a bit, I would ask for a vent hood over the stove, and for the dining room to have a light fixture centered over the table. Minor issues though. The house was extra clean, furnishings great, and the beds comfortable. The outdoor shower is fantastic. We will definitely rent from Mermaid again. Oh, and the coffee is super tasty. I bought some from Seaside Sisters to bring home with me.

    We had a great time taking our 8-month-old baby girl to Tybee! The cottage was decorated so cute and our stay was very comfortable. It was an easy way to the beach...we were pleasantly surprised to find a heavy duty stroller in the closet which helped immensely on our strolls to and on the beach(: also was a high chair! We also loved the outdoor shower! Though there is only one shower in the cottage, the outdoor one is so spacious and the water pressure is great so I never even used the indoor one. We definitely want to visit Tybee and stay with Mermaid Cottages next year! The "Mermaids" attempted to call multiple times during our visit to make sure things were great, although I was always away from my phone when they would call, it was comforting knowing they were available and cared enough to check-in.

    Livin' the Dream was a delight! Spotless, and cheerful! Our 2 dogs loved the fenced in back yard. The park is just across the street and it is a short walk to beach access. The local grocery is well stocked though we enjoyed the local diners as well. Breakfast Club has wonderful food, and we also enjoyed the Crab Shack! Tybee is so relaxing compared to other beach destinations .. everyone is friendly and it is easy to navigate. Thanks to the expert Mermaids who made our vacation fabulous! Our son and his girlfriend really enjoyed the Dolphin sunset tour.. and did I mention the glorious beach? We will be back!

    This cottage was perfect! It is decorated so cute & the beds are comfortable. Really, the best part was the attention by the mermaids. I was called before arrival & when our coffee pot didn't work, they were over in ten minutes
    The deck was a great place to relax. We also used the grill! Great location in the middle of Tybee. We could walk or bike everywhere ibcluding the beach & lighthouse. We had two kids, their parents & my older parents plus our dog

    Our first stay in Tybee Island was made exceptional by our accommodations in this adorable cottage. The space was beautifully decorated and had all we needed for our stay.

    The only recommendation would be to outfit the kitchen with a few more of the essentials for cooking as we enjoying staying in for our meals.

    Hope to visit another Mermaid Cottage in the future!

    Loved this was a bright spot in our rainy and cold weekend at Tybee! The reservation process was easy and rapid. Questions were answered by the "mermaids" promptly, Loved the turquoise and pink and green colors everywhere. The candles on timer made a lovely evening atmosphere. The cottage was well-equipped, including a highchair and fun toys for kids. Be aware that there is no bathtub which we found to be a bit of a problem with 2 little kids. The location is an easy walk from the beach and just across the street from a great playground!

      Thanks so much for your review! We are so happy to hear what a great stay you and your family enjoyed at Livin' the Dream!

    Walter E. H from Midland, Georgia recommends this vacation rental

    We loved "Livin The Dream", as it was very convenient to the beach and most of the establishments. The thing we were most unhappy about was the cleanliness of the tile floors. They were swept, but not mopped. Every time you walked across the tile floor barefooted, your feet would be dirty, so we learned to walk across the floor with our flip flops on. Another thing was the drain in the shower would become clogged. We had to get the plunger to unclog the drain. It could use a good dose of drano. Overall, we had a good experience, and I would recommend "Livin The Dream".

    • Manager Responded on 8/27/2014

      Thank you for your review and feedback. We apologize that you experienced floors that were not as clean as you would like as well as a clogged drain. We have alerted our House Manager and Maintenance Team to the issues you experienced so that they can resolve the problems for any future guests. We are glad that you had an overall good experience and will recommend Livin' the Dream! We hope you will plan a return visit with us soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    we had a lovely time on Tybee Island. The house worked out great. We enjoyed a few visits to Savannah, and the beach, went to Ft.Pulaski,kayaked with Sea Georgia. Was disappointed in a few things: the bike rental companies were both very unprofessional, the dog park, and the lighthouse is closed on Tuesdays (what??) I had called and gone to Tim's Bike Shop and reserved bikes for the next day. When I arrived they had given my bike rental to someone else. I would suggest to anyone going to tybee that wanted to bike to bring their own. I would recommend Livin the Dream to anyone with dogs it worked out well.

    This house was great for our girls weekend! My favorite things were the fun colors, comfortable beds, plenty of space, walking distance from the beach, and was very clean! The only thing I would have changed is better outdoor living space, but that is so minor when you have the beach a few blocks away. Will definitely rent from Mermaid Cottages again!

Also, dealing with Mermaid Cottages was so nice. They really value customer service and it shows. Overall, great vacation experience.

    We had such a wonderful experience with Mermaid Cottages! I was shocked at how sparkling clean our cottage was! All of the furniture was excellent quality and in great condition (with the exception of one extremely hard queen size bed). The furniture in the common areas was luxuriously comfortable. The linens were amazing! Our only complaint is that the stove and oven cook unevenly. But the kitchen was so well-stocked it made up for it! It made for some interesting meals. But what a lovely gathering place! We had a wonderful time. The staff was so friendly, and the accommodations so welcoming. I am now a Mermaid Cottages customer for life!

I had searched and looked at all the pictures that of the Mermaid cottages and they are just all too cute. The house was clean and it had everything we needed.

    Perfect for our family of 4 adults and 2 children. Cottage has adorable furnishings, so bright and beachy! Having only 1 1/2 baths could be a real problem in summer with everyone needing to shower at once for dinner but since weather was cool, we didn't have that problem. 1/2 bath sink slow to drain and floors could have used steam cleaning. A bit farther from the beach than what we would have preferred but for spring break, it was perfect! May want to spray yard for sandspurs. They were awful! We would definitely stay there again. Nice to be "livin the dream" for a few days! We LOVE the beach!!
