Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10

15 11th St., Tybee Island, GA, 31328

NOTE: THIS HOME REQUIRES A 3 NIGHT MINIMUM STAY

Happy Ours is located on the beach side of Butler Avenue on 11th Street so no crossing the street to get to the beach; it is just a few houses back from the beach!

This wonderful cottage offers a spacious living room and dining room, 5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms and 2 outdoor showers; a perfect place for a large family, a girlfriends' getaway, or a multi-family vacation! Happy Ours is also a great place for bridesmaids coming for a wonderful Tybee wedding!

NOTE: 2 OF THE BEDROOMS AT HAPPY OURS ARE DOWNSTAIRS (STREET LEVEL) WITH A BATHROOM BETWEEN THEM. THE KEY TO ACCESS THE DOWNSTAIRS BEDROOMS IS ON KEYCHAIN ON A HOOK IN THE LAUNDRY AREA UPSTAIRS. THE DOWNSTAIRS ROOMS ARE ACCESSED FROM STEPS OFF OF THE KITCHEN THAT LEAD FROM THE MAIN LEVEL OF HOUSE UPSTAIRS TO THE STREET LEVEL. THESE STEPS ARE UNDER THE MAIN HOUSE AND THE ROOMS LOCATED AT STREET LEVEL ARE COMPLETELY SEPARATE FROM THE MAIN FLOOR OF THE HOUSE AND WOULD NOT BE SUITABLE FOR ACCOMMODATING CHILDREN WITHOUT ADULTS ALSO STAYING DOWN ON THAT LEVEL. THERE ARE LOCKS ON THESE ROOMS THUS THE KEY UPSTAIRS IS NEEDED TO OPEN THE ROOMS. THERE ARE ALSO 2 SHOWERS AT THIS LEVEL AND A SITTING AREA AND GAME AREA. WHILE IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO TECHNICALLY GO OUTSIDE FROM UPSTAIRS TO ACCESS THESE ROOMS, YOU DO HAVE TO LEAVE THE MAIN HOUSE AND THE STEPS LEADING DOWN TO THESE ROOMS AS WELL AS THE WHOLE STREET LEVEL AREA IS ENCLOSED BUT OPENS TO THE OUTDOORS. TO ACCESS THESE ROOMS FROM OUTSIDE, THERE IS A COMBINATION LOCK FOR THE 11TH STREET DOOR.

Happy Ours is pet-friendly. A great screened porch is a must for a beach house and this one has that covered! An expansive screened porch across the front of this great house with lots of great outdoor seating, it's the best place to hang out! Great place for pets too! Gas grill in the covered downstairs area as well as the 2 outdoor showers; both are locker style and include a small space with bench and places to hang clothes/towels; both with hot & cold water; great for getting all of that beach sand and salt water washed away before entering the house!

Walk to local Tybee grocery store just across Butler Avenue. Also within easy walking distance to Tybee Pier and Pavilion, restaurants and Tybee nightlife!

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.

New electric fireplace for cozy winter stays!

Reviewer Comments:

Great location to the beach and to downtown. Unbeknownst to us, there was also a grocery store right around the corner that came in handy for quick trips throughout the weekend. House has a bit of a kooky layout, but worked out well for the number of girls we had. Overall, would stay here again because of location (5 min walk to beach!)

Owner's Response: We're so happy The Girls enjoyed Happy Ours ~ the layout is a classic Tybee beach home layout from 'back in the day' ~ it made it easy for parents to enjoy adult time while the kids did their own thing. ;) Come see us again ~ with The Girls, The Fam, whomever! ~ Jennifer & the Mermaids

Reviewer Comments:

Being Tybee Island first timers, we were unsure of who to rent from or where our rental should be located. Luckily for us, we made the right choice by going with Mermaid Cottages. The staff was exceptional - very hospitable and they were there in a jiffy when we had issues with our keys. Happy Ours is an adorable cottage in an excellent location - steps away from Middle Beach. While the room set up was a bit strange - 2 of the bedrooms are completely seperated from the rest of the house (so keep that in mind if you are traveling with small kids), we loved how it easily accomodated our family of 10. The best part of the house, though, was the screened in front porch. It was the perfect spot to hang out both day and night. We can't sing enough praises for this rental, and we have all already decided that Happy Ours is a must rental for next year.

Mermaid cottages, and Happy Ours in particular, were amazing! The staff was kind and helpful. The home was perfect for our family with 2 young kids, both sets of grandparents, and an aunt and uncle. It's very near the beach. We were able to rent baby equipment for a reasonable price from a company on the island. I highly recommend tybee, mermaid cottages, and Happy Ours!

We had a great time at Happy Ours! Two families stayed together with a total of ten vacationers. We loved the proximity to the beach, the pier and Tybee activities. Our calls and questions were answered immediately and Linda at Guest Services was friendly and helpful. Our only suggestion would be to more fully explain how and where to find the keys for entry and the basement bedrooms. We would love to stay here again!

Reviewer Comments:

This was our family's 5th stay with Mermaid Cottages and we absolutely loved our time at Happy Ours. There is so much we love about this house it is hard to begin. The house was close to the beach so we did not have to worry about parking. The front porch was where the adults spent much of our down time relaxing. The downstairs area with the ping pong table was where the kids loved to be when not at the beach. The house is in such a great location we walked to eat at Stingrays and The Breakfast Club as well as the grocery store. The kitchen was great and had everything we could possibly need. We loved cooking at home and the dining room had such great seating. The kids loved sitting at the bar for their meals so they could talk with us working in the kitchen. The bedrooms were so relaxing especially the master that allowed for a quiet get away for the adults that slept there. Our oldest grandson loved having his bedroom downstairs with his grandparents so he felt more independent as he could be away to sleep from the younger kids. One of the absolute favorites of everyone was the two showers downstairs that allowed us to clean up from the beach. They were awesome! We also appreciate this home being pet friendly. Our dog loved the porch also as she could watch the people going by and snooze away when she got tired. The only thing we found for us staying downstairs was the WIFI available for our computer consistently. Happy Ours is where we hope to stay again and again since we have found it. It was so relaxing to just walk out to the beach at sunrise or sunset and come right back to the house without ever needing the cars. Thank you Mermaid Cottages and the owners of Happy Ours for making our family time at Tybee another wonderful stay.
