    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Old Love Cottage. It is a perfect place for a couple to get away to the beach. It is well appointed and clean and comfortable. You are basically on the beach without paying for beachfront property. You are walking distance to many great restaurants and conveniences. This will be our place to stay when ever we return to Tybee Island.

      Old Love really is a wonderful little cottage and we hope you're already making plans to come and see us again, and soon! ~ Jennifer & the Mermaids

    Very cute cottage steps from the beach! The extra bedroom in the back with the queen bed is really unique. Outdoor shower was a lot of fun. Well decorated and has a lot of the tools you need to enjoy your stay. Steps from Tybee restaurants including Salt, Island, Fish & Beer which is delicious.

    Michele C from Traverse city, Mi recommends this vacation rental

    The perfect little home for a couple to experience Tybee Island! The home had everything that was needed. It was super close to the beach...the only bummer part was the jellyfish. Didn't realize that the jellyfish were everywhere in the water when we vacationed at Tybee Island. We really wanted to enjoy the beach and the ocean, but could not due to the jellyfish.
    The home had amazing airconditioning!!!! Which was awesome, because it was super hot when we were there. Shower had great water pressure and so warm when needed. The outdoor shower was great to cool off, when it was so warm outside. The beds were so comfortable and we felt very relaxed in the home! The home was within walking distance to some of the great restaurants and little gift/shopping stores.
    We also took a day and drove to some of the other islands to experience the beauty in the area!

    • Manager Responded on 10/4/2020

      Michele, We love to hear when our guest experience and enjoy the best of the cottages! That is awesome. Old Love does have that beach charm for a great beach experience. So sorry your timing visiting was the same as our unwelcome visitors, the Jellyfish! They can be very aggravating and we are happy to see them leave when they do. We hope to see you back soon for more Old Love and Tybee time, Mermaid Denise and the Mermaid Pod!

    We really enjoyed the cottage, felt like Grandma's house at the beach. The outdoor shower was refreshing and close proximity to beach was a plus. Many feral cats in the area that left poop in our backyard. It would be helpful to have a shovel at the cottage for clean up. We spotted a few roaches in the cottage. Overall we enjoyed our stay with Mermaid Cottages.

    Whitney S from Fishers, IN recommends this vacation rental

    What a great vacation!!!
    We celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary with our second trip to Tybee, and our second stay with the Mermaids.
    Our house was well stocked with what we needed. And, when I needed a basket for laundry transport to/from the house and clothesline.....Mermaid Jennifer and Alfie made it happen!
    We enjoyed the short walk to the beach, the lovely outdoor seating area, the detached bedroom, AND the outdoor shower (it was VERY windy during our stay, so the outdoor shower was a great addition!)
    Old Love is the perfect getaway for a couple of (old) love birds.
    We visited Savannah a few times, the lighthouse, and Fort Pulaski.
    Usually, I’m ready to go home after vacation. Not THIS time.......I was honestly plotting how we could get someone to transport our dog to us, so we could stay longer.
    Well played, Mermaids!

    It is a wonderful process to check in and out. Every thing is ready for you. Well stocked with all you need to enjoy your time at Tybee.

    Leave a good tip when you leave....they have worked hard to meet your needs and provide you a lovely place to call home while on vacation!

    We had a wonderful week celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary! We were sad to leave....cannot wait to visit again!

    Difficult to find a small cottage on Tybee for just 2 people but Mermaid Cottages always comes through for us with lovely, clean, historic cottages close to or on the beach. We will definitely revisit OLD LOVE because that elevated, detached bedroom at the back of the property is heaven for sleep. The Mermaids have it together and never miss a beat on making it real for us.

    It was a very cute cottage. It was clean, and the decor was adorable. It was farther from the beach than we had thought it would be. It is a nice island, with a nice beach. The also provided a special blend of complimentary coffee. which was a nice touch.

      We're happy you had a good time! The beach is just steps from the cottage ~ the actual ocean can be further out with the tides, and of course the shoreline changes all the time ~ but the distance from the cottage to the beach itself is always 99 1/2 steps! :) We can't wait for you to come again. ~ Jennifer & the Mermaids

    This was our second stop on our honeymoon to force relaxation and be close to the beautiful Tybee Island beach. The home was well-maintained and updated with modern amenities. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the at-home feel of the cottage and look to return for a second stay.

    This was the perfect little cottage on the beach for my wife and I to get away to for a long and wonderful weekend. Everything was clean and well appointed as we have grown to expect from Mermaid, and the location right by the beach can't be beaten. I will note that it does not have a beach view due to the dunes and other houses, but with it being such a close walk that hardly matters. We were able to walk to restaurants, grilled a meal, and spent most of our time enjoying the uncrowded beach.

    My family had a great time!! Cottage was perfect; clean, organized, and family friendly for sure. Beach access was amazing too! We have friends that live on the island, so we had them over and had a BBQ in the backyard. Great times and we'll definitley be back again!! Needed assistance and they were quick to respond and help us. We also left a couple of items and had no issues having them shipped back for us. Zero complaints, except that I wish we could have stayed longer. Love Tybee!!!

    I arrived to a pretty Christmas tree, the lights on and soothing music. Perfect start to my relaxation vacation! Diane was very pleasant and responsive. The cottage really is only a few steps to the beach. Everything I needed was in the cottage and the bed in the main house was very comfy. I liked my getaway so much I had a local island artist create an oil painting of the cottage on canvas as a keepsake, and a reminder to myself to breath and relax a little in the course of my busy life.

She was so excited to see us pull up to mermaid cottage and began to cry again because she was so happy and excited to be staying in the cottage. I perposed to her on the beach right in front of the lighthouse and she said YES!!!!! It was a PERFECT weekend. One that changed our lives forever!!

    This cottage is packed with character and charm, from the décor to the colors outdoors. The place is full of fun beach decorations -- plus just walk down the short little path and you are right on the beach! The shed in the backyard had some beach chairs and beach toys too, which was a wonderful bonus. The outdoor shower for washing off sand and the laundry machines were great conveniences. The back additional mini-cottage is a very nice plus as well -- we could each watch different tv shows at the same time! On top of the cottage itself being so great, the Mermaids are top-notch at providing quality service. They are so helpful and professional. And the housekeeper had the cottage in immaculate condition! I highly recommend the Old Love Cottage. Young and old alike will love it.

    Old Love is the ideal stay on Tybee. Yes, it is literal steps to the beach, great for enjoying the ocean, strolling the sands or rising early to watch the sun come up.

    It is a small space with every amenity you need. The back building is great for either a second couple or kids. The property is spotless and super comfortable. If you want to stay in and relax with TV, do that too (plenty of TV and streaming options).

    On top of that, the customer service is 5-star. Walk across the street to Chu's if you need a convenience store or right beside Chu's, eat at Sundae Cafe. Three beach stores are right down the road.

    As good as advertised and a stay you'll always remember. We hope to be back ASAP!

    We came for a before the holiday rush get away. This is a lovely little cottage which is indeed very close to the beach. There was no coffee but when I called about it, we were encouraged to go by a local store to be given a free bag of their Mermaid brand. It was very thoughtful of them. Many businesses were closed for the winter but there were still plenty of places to eat and shop. We were only 20 minutes from Savannah which was great. I would recommend this cottage to a couple or small family that prefers their own space over a hotel.

    My friend and I met in Savannah to celebrate our 50th birthdays. We wanted something relaxing & Old Love Cottage was perfect. It's located on a quiet street, just a short walk to the beach, and near restaurants and shops.

    The cottage and the crab trap out back were great! The decorating was great & the backyard was a good spot to relax with a glass of wine after a day of sightseeing.

    The cottage was spotless & had all the things you needed in order to cook some meals at home. There was even a grill in the backyard, but we didn't use it.

    The beach in this area of Tybee Island is more secluded and quiet in comparison to the main beach/boardwalk. You felt almost like you had your own private beach :)

    We had a small issue after the first night (new heat in the crab trap that we couldn't figure out). They had someone out within an hour to get it working for us!

    We had a fabulous time- if you're looking for a relaxing getaway, this is the place!

    My daughter & I first stayed here in 2011 & loved it. The cottage is so charming & light filled. It was the perfect getaway for us, but would be a great cottage for a romantic getaway too. Unfortunately, it was not great beach weather. We found plenty to do visiting the lighthouse, riding our bicycles in soft rains, picking up shells on the beach, shopping, & eating. Perfect cottage for two, but more than that, I would not recommend.

    We were very satisfied with our stay, however in the extra room I was bitten on my face by an insect the or spider in the night. Therefore, we would not use that room after that. Additionally, the flood lights from the surrounding neighbors made the extra room very hard to sleep in. I would suggest better insecticide and different curtains for the outside extra room (the roost).

    The location is ideal if you want to be 99 1/2 steps to the beach and not in a condo complex.

The cottage was clean, charming, small and cozy. The Crab Trap (separate sleeping cottage) was also clean, charming, and cozy. Our group consisted of mom, dad and our 20 year old daughter so, having a main cottage and the Crab Trap were just perfect for us! If you are traveling with young children I am not sure this arrangement will work well for you. The outside shower was great, although hot water was not guaranteed but not really needed either. A hot shower was always an option in the main cottage bathroom. The washer and dryer were especially appreciated -- we visited Tybee in July so the humidity was high so towels did not dry well on the hooks inside the main cottage, consequently we would shake off the sand, run the towels through a rinse cycle in the washer then use the dryer for a complete dry. Recommendations to the Mermaids would be to extend the stepping stones from the main cottage to the Crab Trap and to add one or two more stones to the path to the outside shower, and find some smaller chairs that could be placed on the deck of the Crab Trap -- an afternoon beverage on the deck in the sun would be more enjoyable if chairs that fit the space were available. Also, I would recommend adding a pizza cutter to the utensil drawer. For future renters -- Old Love Cottage is not a luxury 5-star hotel or condo but it is definitely a 5-star beach cottage!

    We fell for Tybee's charm right away. This is what we envisioned in a great little beach town. The people are amazing, kind, helpful and friendly. We stayed in Old Love Cottage because of its fun history plus wanted to see a Jane Coslick rehab. Old Love Cottage is exactly perfect for what it is ... a simple well loved very comfortable beach shack. Our only criticism is the property details ( mostly outside) should be maintained more meticulously...for example fresh flowers in the flower boxes. Otherwise we will be back and will use the Mermaid Cottage service again. Thanks for the great stay. We hated to leave!

    This wonderful little cottage packs a real punch. We could not have asked for better. The kitchen is fully equipped for all of your needs. The home was very clean upon our arrival. The walk to the beach was not far at all. Being on the north end of the island and at 300 yards+ away from the start of the multi-unit complexes allows you to feel like you have your own section of private beach. The grill and backyard entertaining space is very welcoming and we utilized it a great deal. I would say that this cottage is best described with the phrase "good things do come in small packages."

    We had a great time. This was our third stay at Old Love and could not have been better. The cottage was super clean and just delightful. The kitchen was well stocked and we could not have been happier. We rented bikes and rode all around checking out the other Mermaid Cottages. The proximity to the beach is wonderful and we enjoyed the time so much. As usual, I loved my time reading and drinking my morning coffee on the sweet blue swing in the back yard.
    The Mermaids provide impeccable service so there is absolutely no point in ever renting from another service. I was able to introduce my daughter to the magic of Old Love and I believe she adored it as well .
    Thank you Mermaid Cottages for another special time.

    My husband & I came to Tybee with another couple to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. It was the perfect get away. Old Love is small & cozy. My husband & I stayed in the house out back. It was a little wet having to go to the restroom in the middle of the night but very relaxing listening to the rain on the tin roof. Tybee was beautiful & I enjoyed just sitting on the beach reading a book. I usually go to the beaches on the gulf & really enjoyed a totally different kind of beach. I also enjoyed being able to go into Savannah each night and eating at all the great restaurants! If you're looking for a great & relaxing trip then Old Love is your place!

    We enjoyed every minute of our stay at the beautiful cottage Old Love. Close to a quiet beach and walking or bike ride to everywhere. We didn't want to leave.
    The path to the beach was a bit tight and needed to be trimmed a bit but that was minor!

    We absolutely loved Old Love, we spent our Honeymoon on Tybee and it was the perfect spot for us. We loved all the little touches that gave it that warm and cozy feeling of a home away from home. The private little trail leading to the beach was just a yard over and it is located on a quiet street. The location of the cottage is central to anything on the island and every was so friendly. Will definitely return to Old Love and can't wait until we do!!!

    My wife and I had a great time staying at Old Love. Its a perfect cottage, with a great backyard that makes you want to keep your bathing suit on all day, crack a cold one, and soak up the sun. You might as well list this property as "oceanfront" with how close you really are to the beach. It's on the sleepier North Beach side of town, which is awesome, with some great restaurants and the ultimate beach dive bar nearby.
