Vacation Rentals Marketing by Thrasher Photo and Design

Mermaid Cottages Skipjack Cottage

Over the years, Thrasher Photo and Design has helped brand lots of vacation rental and travel companies.

Here are a few great images from a recent photo shoot Jason did for Tybee Island’s Mermaid Cottages’ “Skipjack Cottage circa 1929”. Skipjack Cottage is a fully restored, historic cottage with all-modern amenities. It’s definitely one of my favorites– and we’ve stayed in dozens of cottages on Tybee.

You can read more about our stay at Skipjack Cottage on the Mermaid Cottages’ blog, where I made this guest post earlier this month, featuring a few of my own snapshots, along with a story about Spring Break on Tybee.

We’ve also just finished a full branding package, website and copywriting for a new worldwide whitewater paddling outfit, Paddle World Adventures. And, we recently created a new mobile friendly, responsive website project this month for a company up in Ely, MN, near the beautiful Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, The Adventure Inn.

But back to Tybee…

This image below is of my favorite room at the Skipjack Cottage. I love the colors! There were also two more master-sized bedrooms like this upstairs, and another two twin rooms downstairs– so it’s a great place to bring a family or two, and just a few steps from the beach.

Here is the great room with fireplace and lots of places to relax, read or listen to some beach tunes.

This is the front of Skipjack– just a few houses back from the beach, on the seaside of Butler but a few houses back from the road so it’s peaceful and a super-easy two-minute walk to the beach with a sweet porch swing the kids love. Downstairs is a game room with all kinds of beach gear to make your trip easy.


We had some rain on Tybee Island that week, but that never dampens our spirits when we have a great house to hang out in– here are some of my snapshots. We made watercolors on the screened porch– and used one of the many cute paintings in the house as inspiration. Here’s the original

and some of the art we made, inspired by the cottage’s palm tree painting…

But our favorite thing about Tybee is… the beach! Even in early March the sun is warm and the breezes are gentle.


All you need for a stay on Tybee is a pair of flip flops…
