    We liked the screen porch a lot. They really need to repair the hot and cold faucets in the front bathroom because they move around and it's hard to wash hands. The pedestal sink should be repaired to look cleaner too. Several of the outlets didn't work, so we had to use the hair dryer in a different room. A couple of the night lights didn't' work either. Otherwise, I liked the house.

    Flips Flop house is an amazing vintage cottage. We loved the backwater location. The cottage is spacious and we loved the screened in porch. Kitchen lacks abundant cupboard space and counter/prep surface but that wasn't a huge issue for us as we dined out a lot!!

    Our stay at the Flip flop house was great. Mermaid cottages was very accommodating and organized.

    All decorations were beautiful and the cottage was very homey. Our only comment was there was mold in the kitchen,but we heard there was recently a major storm and I am sure it will be taken care of!

    Would definitely use them again! Location is perfect.

    We had a great time visiting this house for the weekend. There were 10 of us and there was more than enough room for us to spread out and not feel cramped. We loved the side yard for games and the two porches for morning coffee. We were a short walk to the beach (about 20 minutes), which wasn't terrible at all. Just bring your backpack beach chair! :)

    I have to say that Mermaids is a most professional company!!! They have their act together and are the client is "in the know" before you arrive at their properties! Location was fine except a bit far from the beach. We thought the house could have been a bit cleaner especially bath floors, but overall it was fine. It was an adorable cottage...decorated so nicely!!! We enjoyed sitting on front porch talking to all the customers coming to A J's for dinner! We also liked just walking around the corner for a drink or dessert, at A J's, on several occasions while there. Lively place on the water!

The kitchen was FULLY stocked with all needs met. Beds and sheets were very comfortable. The location could not have been better. Daily walks to the beach a few blocks away. Breakfast around the corner at AJ's. Quiet neighborhood and gorgeous sunsets. Would DEFINITELY stay there again!! Management called twice to make sure we were happy and were available if we needed anything! We could not have been happier!

    This house is in a great location, but anyone that plans to rent should know that the twin bedroom has no door, only a curtain to shield it from the kitchen. Also, one of the bathroom's shower head is hand held, not overhead. The kitchen is also very small and has only the barest minimum of amenities. BUT, great front porch that shields the wind and catches the afternoon sun, AND roomy living room and dining room.

    The house was very clean and nice on the inside. We had 10 people stay and did not have any issues with dishes or bathrooms. The propane ran out and they were very prompt in replacing it for us. The house is close to the beach, IGA,and some nice restaurants. The twin beds are in a room together and the three queen beds were all in separate rooms. We also enjoyed the screened in back porch to eat dinner or just relax. Very nice rental for vacation. The property management called us to make sure we did not have questions or issues.

We love this home and will be back for many years to come!

    Flip's Flop house was perfect for our vacation. Lots of space - 3 queen beds, the 2 day beds which had 2 trundle beds under them - and the house was beautiful. We didn't feel like there was a ton of traffic from AJ's across the street and the beach was close. We recommend the south end of the beach where the sand is very soft.

    We had a wonderful time and a fabulous experience renting from Mermaid Cottages. I was looking for a rental that would allow our family to stay together for a family wedding. They went above and beyond to make sure that we had a great experience. The Flip Flop house was perfect. It had plenty of space for all to crash and wonderful porches to hang out on! We were only going to be there for a short time and Jan arranged for us to check in a bit early and then allowed us to leave late! Thank you Jan!!

    How do we begin to describe the wonderful time we had during our week at Tybee Island staying in Flips Flop? This was our third time staying in a Mermaid Cottage property and as in the previous two times we were so very pleased. The house was wonderful, clean and had everything we needed to make our stay perfect.All the rooms were so beautifully staged. We all commented on the comfort of the beds and how well we slept each night. We enjoyed the access to the screened in porch from the bedrooms. It was wonderful to sit out there early in the morning and enjoy our coffee or to gather for conversation or games. The location of the house was perfect for us. We enjoyed being just an easy walk to the beach to enjoy the sunrise and the short walk to the back river to enjoy the sunset. We felt the area was quiet and very family friendly. There were five adults and two children in our group.The flow of the house was wonderful and allowed plenty of space for all of us. One of the adults in our group needed a wheelchair and there were no problems moving around in the house at all. We loved the short walk to AJ's and to Stingrays for wonderful seafood. The laundry room was a great place to come in from the beach and leave your wet towels before entering the house. We also enjoyed the convenience of the outdoor shower. The owners have made their home a wonderful place for families to come and feel at home while staying there. We are already trying to decide what week we will be going next year to stay in this same house! I highly recommend this home for any family wanting an excellent place to stay during their visit to Tybee Island.

    Beverly G from Indianapolis, IN recommends this vacation rental

    I have visited Tybee several times, staying at many different properties, but I can stop looking for the perfect house now, because Flip's Flop House is it! This house was charming. Perfect beachy decor, very tastefully done. It looks like no expense was spared when it was restored. It has so much more room than it appears from the outside, too. Our group of two adults and two teenagers had plenty of space to get away, and the house could easily accommodate several more. We prefer a quieter location on the island and this was perfect for that. Some reviews mentioned the AJ's parking as an issue but it didn't bother us at all. We especially liked the outdoor shower and the beautifully decorated screened porch. The only thing that could have made the porch better would be to add a ceiling fan or two, as it was very hot and humid during our visit. We can't wait to go back and will plan to stay at this house again. Excellent customer service from Mermaid Cottages staff as well.

      Thank you for your wonderful review and recommendation for Flips Flop House! We are delighted that you had such a wonderful stay and have found "your place" on Tybee!

    We had a wonderful stay at the beautifully renovated Weil-Atkinson house! We cooked most of our meals in and would have found it helpful to have some kind of shelving/pantry area to store food and some more basic spices for our use. The house and property are gorgeous. The only critique is that the view from the front porch is of overflow parking for AJs Dockside restaurant.

    • Manager Responded on 8/18/2013

      Thank you for your review and so happy you enjoyed the cottage! We will take this suggestion of more pantry space and spices to the homeowner and housekeeping team! AJ's is such a popular restaurant on the island with breathtaking sunset views we do hope you had an opportunity to enjoy it. The other porch has a view of the side yard also. We appreciate your review and honesty, we do point out on our website that AJ's restaurant is close by as well as their parking. We hope you will stay with us again! ~ the Mermaids of Tybee Island

    This is a lovely cottage on Tybee, renovated and restored with beautiful furnishings from years past. The cottage has a brand new kitchen as well as washer and dryer. All 3 bedrooms have french doors that open to an amazing side porch. Great location on the back river, with a short bike ride to the beach down 14th street or on Chatham. AJ's Dockside is next door and their parking lot is across the street from this property. However, no issues and very quiet. You have some privacy on the side porch, the restaurant closes at 10.00pm. Thank you, Mermaid Cottages for a wonderful vacation! Your company provided outstanding service from beginning to end. Already thinking about a return trip next year and Mermaid Cottages will be our first call.

    a guest from Webster Groves, Missouri recommends this vacation rental

    We have rented beach houses all over the country and this was by far the best in terms of cleanliness, quality, and decor. It's much bigger than it looks online and the huge side porch was a favorite gathering place. It was the perfect extended family entertaining spot. I was worried about AJ's restaurant being so close since we like quiet and secluded, but there were no issues there. The parking lot across the street is busy with people coming in and out and walking by, but they don't linger, they don't park in the yard, and they're all gone by 10:00. The side porch is somewhat blocked from the street by trees, so we didn't feel exposed at all. Bottom line - great house, wonderful rental company, would not hesitate to rent this same house over and over again. I wish we could just move in for good - we loved the house that much.

    • Manager Responded on 6/10/2013

      Wow! Thank you so much for your wonderful review and recommendation!

    We picked this property to stay at for my wedding in case it rained, we would have the big wrap around porch for our guests plus it was close to Chatham and 19th for our wedding. Thankfully it didn't rain that weekend! :) This home is beyond charming and was bigger than I thought it would be! The washers and dryers are awesome front loaders and came in handy after the water parade! :) Somehow we managed to have our destination wedding on the same weekend as the Beach Bum Parade on Friday. What a fun experience! Plus you could easily walk to it from the house. You can also easily walk to AJ's from the house, but the wait is quite long! I can't wait to get my professional pictures back from my wedding as the house was a big part of them! Thanks for offering such an amazing home; I can't wait to come back one year for our anniversary, if it's not sold by then. ;) Also, I have to add, Jan is incredible to work with. For planning from Florida, she was so helpful with locations, etc. THANK YOU! :)
