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.

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 :)

Reviewer Comments:

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!

Reviewer Comments:

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!

Owner's Response: We love you, too! And we're so happy you came back and stayed with us again. If I were a dog I'd be 'digging' that yard too. :D Can't wait to see you again! !~ Jennifer & the Mermaids

The cottage is great and we enjoyed our stay here. Beds slept great and we have stayed at other places not Mermaid Cottages where the beds have been uncomfortable.The cottage was clean when we arrived. The deck/patio is a great outdoor space and the charcoal grill was utilized during our stay. We hope to be back next year at Livin the Dream. We made some great family memories.

We loved the house! It was spacious and the outdoor area was a great place to hangout. The location was perfect; it is walking distance to a few beach access points so it was very convenient.

This home was perfect for us. 5 adults and 1 baby stayed here. The house easily accommodated all of us. We also had family that was staying in Savannah and often had up to 10 adults for dinner. The outdoor and indoor seating accommodated us for all of our social interactions. The location was ideal, an easy 3 block walk to the beach.
