Our Home Away From Home

2.24.2015

When you get away from home you hope your new accommodations are up to par. Well, let me tell you our little home away from home was better than I thought it would be.



Welcome to Tybee Isand and our cottage "Basking Under the Tybee Sun". Isn't it cute with the white picket fence?

If it had been warmer we would have enjoyed this cute screened in porch.

This is the table just inside the front door holding the extra keys and you can see the wifi box. They offer free wifi which was really nice. My mom realized that the table needed to be scooted over a bit, but I had already taken pics and put the camera up. Good eye, Mom.

This is the cute living room area we hung out in at night after our long days out. It is your typical coastal decor and it was colorful and comfy.



I loved these bamboo chairs.

Step down sun room off the dining area.

I borrowed this shot from the website since I couldn't find the photo I took. At least I thought I did.

The other side of the sun room.

Nice kitchen and stocked with everything needed except food of course. There are stores close by for groceries. You can see I took this after I made our morning coffee.

This is my cute bedroom and it was quite comfy. I slept really good.

My bathroom was right next to my bedroom. 

This was my mom's room across the hall from me with an attached bathroom.
You can visit my sister's blog to see her room.

Not a good photo, but this is one of the cottages that has a tiny pool. The owners added it for there grand kids who visit when they all vacay together.


This cute cottage's rentals are handled by Mermaid Cottages. They have several properties you can choose from to accommodate small or large families and some even allow pets. Ours did, but we didn't bring ours with us. The beach is a few blocks way so you can either walk or drive to it. 

I highly recommend that you check out Mermaid Cottages if you want to visit Tybee Island where the cottages are located or if you plan a trip to Savannah. It is about a twenty minute drive to Savannah. Lots of great restaurants and shopping.

Thank you, Mermaid Cottages for easy booking and a very comfortable stay.

I'll be back with some photos from a few shops.

Hope to see y'all tonight for Wow Us Wednesdays!

  11. Tybee is so fun! The girls and I stayed in a condo there for a few days two years ago over spring break. We took the dogs and had a great time walking the around town -- they were welcome everywhere but the pier and the beach. Love the little cottages on the south end and the grand old houses on the north end.

  13. I had actually googled those cottages several weeks ago when I thought my daughter and I might have a couple of extra days to spend to see Savannah. What a darling place. It is one thing to look on the internet and another to know someone that has actually stayed there. Just perfect! I am so glad you and Kelly and your Mom had a good time. I saw her room over on her blog, too. xo Diana

  27. Cute little cottage! I love Tybee Island. We used to vacation every year at Hilton Head Island and we always made a point to go to Savannah and sometimes over to Tybee too. One of my favorite areas in the US!!
