Reviewer Comments:

Seven of us stayed in tybee for a friends bachlorette weekend. We had a great time on the island. The house was true to the pictures and the staff very friendly and accommodating. They called the day before to just make sure we had directions and codes to get in. I've stayed in many houses such as this but never had a management company to this. There were several restaurants with in reasonable ubering distance and cost. And even a waterview restaurant within 3 minute walking distance! We are beach lovers and the quick drive was quick and had plenty of paid parking. However with only one inside shower (one bathroom had a tub only) it made it difficult for all of us to get ready quickly. There is an outside shower that several of us used and didn't mind but some guests might prefer not to. We would definitely go back and stay here or check out another mermaid cottage on The island!

Owner's Response: We're so happy you enjoyed Back River Bungalow (or BRB as I call it, and always think 'Be Right Back' because it makes you want to be right back)! We do note that there is just the one shower, but I agree a gaggle of girls getting gussied can take a little fancy maneuvering. ;) Come see us again soon! I'm sure The Girls will need another trip really soon. Watch our Facebook page ~ we always have great fall and winter specials! ~ Jennifer & the Mermaids

Owner's Response: Don't you just love all those porches! We had one guest that went home and replaced all the back windows on her house with doors and added a screen porch across it because of her time at Back River Bungalow and the other Mermaid Cottage next door, Flips Flop. Come see us again soon for more Tybee time!---The Mermaids

The Back River Bungalow was so cute and cozy! It was so accessible to everything. We walked to the grocery store and the beach. Just a short distance. We will definitely use Mermaid Cottages for our next visit to Tybee!

Reviewer Comments:

The rental company did an amazing job in giving us all the information we needed for the stay, including area information which was helpful about Tybee Island. They also called the day before to ensure we didn't need anything else for our stay. The house itself was ok. One of the towel racks was half ripped out of the wall in a bathroom, and the floors were stained in the bathroom. Older property, and not a ton of room for the 8 people we had, but it was ok. The kitchen has very little counter space, but the back covered patio was lovely. All the beds looked like Fulls, and were small, but the furniture was sturdy enough. About a 15 min walk to the main road and all the restaurants. I would recommend this house for groups of up to 6 maybe, not 8, if you're looking for comfort and room. Overall an ok weekend.
