    Melody S from Alexis, NC recommends this vacation rental

    the location was great allowed us to walk to the beach verses drinking and paying to park each day and through out the day. The house was great there were 2 addtional beds in the house upstairs bedroom that were not listed on the house desctiptions when we reserved. This worked out great for our family prevented pairing up 2 children in each bed. If you are looking for yard space to play there is no back yard at this house however the carport made for a great game playing location "corn hole". Our family loves spending time on Tybee and renting through the Mermaid Cottages we will be back in the future!!!!!!!!!

    Julie L from Los Gatos, Ca recommends this vacation rental

    You know it's a good vacation rental when you start planning to use some of the decorating ideas to make you own home look better! Barefoot Children was perfectly located on a quiet street but right near the beach and not far from restaurants etc. The house itself was lovely and spacious for our group, with fun and whimsical casual decorating that was perfect for a stay at the beach. Mermaid Carol in the office was so helpful with making the reservation and with giving us tips and suggestions for things to do and places to eat in Tybee. We would love to come back here and stay longer next time!

    • Manager Responded on 8/25/2014

      Thank you so much for your review and recommendation for Barefoot Children! We are delighted that you had such an enjoyable stay! We will be sure and let Mermaid Carol know how much you appreciated her assistance! We, too, would love for you to come back and stay longer next time; see you sson! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    Arlyce E from Melrose, WI recommends this vacation rental

    We loved the location and the bedrooms were exactly what we needed for our family which included 5 children under the age of 6:) My daugher in law said it was the best vacation she had ever been on. She got a little spooked when seeing several cochroaches. Given that we came from Wisconsin by plane I would have appreciated some clotes hangers in the closet(there were none).We would definitely chose this Mermaid Cottage again. Thank you for making our vacation one to remember. The location to the beach is great. We were told to bring beach towels so stopped to buy them when we arrived. Only to find many at the beach house.

    • Manager Responded on 7/16/2014

      Thank you for your review and recommendation for Barefoot Children! We are so happy that you had such a great time! Yes, in the south bugs are always around but we do exterminate monthly. We apologize for not having clothes hangers; we do have 24/7 Guest Services and we wish you had called us; we would have been happy to provide so your stay would have been even more enjoyable! We want our guests to let us know ANYTIME they need something! And, while some of our homeowners choose to provide beach towels, many do not so we let guests know they might want to bring them to be certain. Also, many times, our guests choose to purchase towels once they are on Tybee as a souvenir to take home! We are delighted that hear that you would stay at Barefoot Children again; we hope to see you again soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    Kim S from Atehns, Ga recommends this vacation rental

    It was just me and my 6 year old grand-daughter staying together in this very child friendly home...I could relax while she played in the Pirates room and the Princess/Hippo room. She had a ball and I was able to relax. We experienced the beauty of the beach when it was extra windy and cold...and even the cold wind felt good, A special new Memory we will Cherish. Last but definitely not last "Denise" a super mermaid , that made everything just extra special for us...Thank you Denise!!! All the mermaids are great!

    • Manager Responded on 11/29/2013

    Fran S from Frankfort, KY recommends this vacation rental

    When 3 generations of a family (age range 6 months to 69 years) want to vacation together, finding the right location can be a challenge. We think we found a near-perfect place in the Barefoot Children cottage on Tybee Island. There's space to spread out and have some privacy, yet everybody can get together in the living-dining-kitchen area and on that wonderful screened porch. The only thing I would change is that the person sleeping in what we called the "Hippo Room" on the second floor had no access to the second-floor bathroom without walking through another bedroom. This was less than ideal, but we worked around it. We appreciated the cottage's family atmosphere and the delightful decor planned with children in mind -- no expensive, breakable, "designer" stuff to worry about. We had a 2-block walk to the beach, so renting a beach cart from Tim's Beach Rentals was the smartest decision we made! The "Mermaids" were highly responsive to two calls for help during our stay. All in all, we had a wonderful experience and hope to make a family vacation an annual tradition.

      Thank you for your review! We are so happy that you and your extended family had such a great family vacation at Barefoot Children! We appreciate your recommendation and we invite you back!

    A floor plan prior to coming would be great. However, when we had a problem with bugs, the company responded quickly and professionally. We really appreciated the personal and kind help that we received. Changed our mind about changing companies in the future. Thanks.

    • Manager Responded on 9/30/2013

      Thank you for your review. Feedback such as yours is what helps us continue to improve and continue offering our guests the very best beach vacation experience possible. We wanted you to know that we immediately addressed and resolved the issue with bugs. We located the area around the plumbing that was the entry point and have made all necessary repairs and extermination. This issue has been completely resolved and we thank you for letting us know about it so quickly so we could take the appropriate steps to eliminate this issue. We are delighted that you have made the decision to stay with us again in the future; we hope to see you again very soon! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    Claire R from Ellijay, GA recommends this vacation rental

    Barefoot Children was easy walking distance to the beach. The house was absolutely charming. The princess bedroom was a huge hit with my granddaughter and the pirate room tickled my grandson. We had plenty of room and bathrooms, and the kitchen was very easy to use and also had plenty of room. It is our new favorite place to stay in Tybee. We'll be back! The Mermaid Cottage mermaids were a delight to work with.

    • Manager Responded on 10/3/2013

      Thank you for your review! We're so happy that Barefoot Children was such a huge hit with your grandchildren! It definitely is the perfect beach house for children!

    a guest from Roswell, Ga recommends this vacation rental

    We've just returned from a wonderful week at this house and could not have asked for a better experience. The beach was a quick 1.5 block stroll down the street, shops and restaurants were two blocks away, and the immediate neighbourhood was well kept, quiet, and lovely. The house itself was clean and adorably decorated and the two very minor issues that we encountered were addressed by the Mermaid staff literally within minutes. The one drawback was that the Internet was painfully slow, but we managed to work around that for the most part. We are strongly considering this house for next year's vacation.

    • Manager Responded on 7/31/2013

      Thank you for your review! We are delighted that you had a cozy, relaxing and wonderful stay at Barefoot Children!

We look forward to seeing you and your family back again next year! ~The Mermaids of Tybee Island

    What a wonderful cottage for kids ... so many fun places to play (the reading nook, the pirate room, under the stairs). Right down to eating popsicles on the porch swing, it was a perfect summer vacation.

    We rented from Mermaid for the second time this past weekend. It was a very impromptu trip for us...less than 12 hrs notice and the mermaids were very accomodating, knowing we were driving 15 hrs to get there!! Not only did we get a good deal, but the home we stayed in was awesome!! It was big with plenty of room for our kids to run around and play and we were just two blocks from the beach and just one block to IGA and walking distance to shops and restaurants. I can't say enough good things about Mermaid Cottages. I am so happy we have used their services and we look forward to our 9 day vacation this summer with our family! Can't wait to check out these two properties! Give Jan or Diane a call! You wil not be disappointed!
