The rain is falling softly and I’m sitting on my porch swing as I write about today’s charming home tour, which I’m super excited about by the way! You get to tour an adorable, vintage cottage on Tybee Island in Georgia. I’ve known about the collection of rental properties at Mermaid Cottages and finally reached out to them asking if I could showcase a few. There are so many pretty beach cottages it was hard to choose which one to feature first, but I finally chose Tybee Tides and will share a few others over the summer months. (Cottage photos courtesy of Mermaid Cottages.)
At the opposite end of the porch is a small dining room with great views all around. I’ve visited Tybee Island a few times while vacationing at Hilton Head Island. I’m head over heels in love with the low country area of the southeast. There’s something so romantic and intoxicating about it.
Step inside and be charmed by vintage cottage surroundings. I love the soft colors in this cottage, paired with the white walls and warm wood tones of the floor. And did you notice the light fixtures on the post? So cute! I’ll try not to overuse the word “cute” in this post but seriously … this cottage is so stinkin’ cute!
And the kitchen!! If you read my blog regularly you know I love white kitchens (and contrary to popular opinion, they really aren’t that hard to keep clean). I love the vaulted ceiling in here with the double window over the kitchen sink. A handy breakfast bar is perfect for grabbing a quick lunch before running off to the beach for the afternoon.
I love its rustic appeal and the bench is equally charming!
Note how the bedding and pillows match the colors of the shutters.
I’ve yet to stay at Tybee Island … but fell in love with it when vacationing at Hilton Head. We drove around the island and I was oohing and aahing at every turn of the road. I told myself someday I’d go back and spend a week at one of the cottages … so it’s on my bucket list. You can see more of Tybee Tides or any of the Mermaid Cottages on their website and even check for availability if you want to vacation there!

And stop by later tonight when I join a group of bloggers for a collection of no-sew projects!
