About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 7

305 Jones Ave., Tybee Island, GA, 31328

Charming beach cottage located on Jones Avenue!

3 bedroom, 1.5 baths. Great new and private outdoor shower with hot and cold water! Sleeps 7. 1940's cottage with lots of vintage charm! 1 King bed, 1 queen bed, 1 double bed and a twin (double & twin are configured as bunk beds!) Perfect for a family with kids! Handicap-friendly with wheelchair ramp. Bright, cheerful and newly-renovated and just 3 short Tybee blocks from the beach!

Livin' the Dream is a one-story bungalow with a very spacious deck; deck offers lots of seating for enjoying cocktails in the evening or Mermaid Morning Bliss Coffee in the morning! Flat screen TVs in the living room, king bedroom and queen bedroom. Dining table that seats 8 comfortably with fun, orange chairs and another cute, aqua table with pink & green chairs & separate bench. This table makes a great workstation/playstation for laptops or kids’ play. (It's a great space if kids need a separate place to dine.) Also makes a great area to spread out goodies and snacks for everyone to enjoy! Living area very spacious with beamed ceilings, large flatscreen TV, comfy sofa, ivory slipcovered chair and two great wicker side chairs separated by a darling aqua/cream striped table. Plenty of seating for all; very cheerful, beachy colors! Cottage has been decorated in tones of aqua/orange/pink/red/ivory and captivates with beachy bold color! This color palette is followed throughout the cottage and it is truly a gem.

Completely renovated/redecorated throughout with fresh paint, linens & great built-ins in the bedrooms with lots of counter and storage space! Lots of fun, beach & coastal pictures throughout lets you know you are “on vacation at the beach!” New tile flooring throughout. The bungalow has a very open, spacious layout and the bedrooms are also very spacious and inviting. The kitchen cabinets have been updated in a bright, beachy turquoise/aqua and kitchen is fully equipped including our very own Mermaid Morning Bliss Coffee! Washer and dryer located in the kitchen area. Full bath with shower in hall and half bath in the king bedroom.

Covered carport is great! Can park out of the weather. Entry door from carport opens directly into the kitchen area. There is plenty of parking area in the carport and driveway.

Livin' the Dream is directly across the street from other Mermaid Cottages (The Shrimp & Key Lime Parrot); great for families and large groups needing multiple cottages; very close and can walk back and forth between these 3 cottages. Blues Away Cottage, Mimosa Cottage and Maddie’s on Jones also nearby. Livin' the Dream is located directly across Jones Avenue from Memorial Park and the Tybee YMCA. Park features lots of picnic tables; great for group gatherings and multi-family gatherings. Also has a beach volleyball court, basketball courts, and an awesome playground! All located right across Jones Avenue from Livin' the Dream! Complimentary WiFi.

Minimum Age Requirement: Must be 25 years of age to rent this property.

PLEASE NOTE: Longer minimum stay requirements of up to 7 nights will apply during certain times of the year including holidays and our summer season.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I’m still unpacking from my stay at Livin’ the Dream where I just hosted a couple’s baby shower but stopped to post this review before Life gets going again and I forget! The cottage was perfect for the shower: spacious with plenty of seating and a fresh beach decor. And, wonderful Mermaid Carol made everything super easy-and that is a huge deal when your scheduling and planning from afar! Many many thanks :)

We had another house rented for Spring Break for our daughter and she wasn't 25 so the other agency wouldn't allow her to stay. We received Mermaid Rental's number from a friend and they were super helpful and worked great with our daughter.

Our experience at Livin the Dream was more than we could have ever asked for. It was a perfect temporary home that our whole family loved. Better than the home was our experience with Mermaid Cottages. They are by far the most professional and courteous vacation rental company I have ever dealt with. If you are considering a trip to Tybee (and you definitely should) I highly recommend using a Mermaid Cottage!

Living the Dream was the perfect place for our family and friends to stay while on Tybee. Denise from Mermaids was super helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. The cottage was very inviting, and it had all the comforts of home. Our youngest is in a wheelchair and she was able to get all around the house with ease. The outside shower was amazing! And we all used it after the beach!! The beds were super comfy and we slept like logs after our long days at the beach!

I love this house! So spacious, yet still cozy. It was very clean and our dogs loved the yard. And one of the most well-equipped kitchens I've ever seen in a rental. Seriously, this place had all the perks. Fans, board games, and big tables for a puzzle. I will definitely say here again! P.S. As always Mermaid Cottages took great care of us with nice check-in calls. I love y'all!
