Quaint Beach Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, comfortable, clean beach cottage. Loved the decor and the house fit our family perfectly. The weather wasn't great so we didn't swim from the beach but we enjoyed walking the beach and seeing the horseshoe crabs. Fully stocked with fun family games too ! We drove to Lewes and enjoyed the town and nearby State Park. We are from a "land-locked" state and the Mermaid House gave us an authentic beach experience!

Mermaid Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This beachfront house had fenced-in yards (front and back) for our dog's freedom and exercise. It was clean and adequately provisioned for our 5 day stay. Appreciated beach accessibility and serenity. Enjoyed peaceful evenings with a bottle of wine. Yet, met and enjoyed the company of a few locals while there. Visited Rehoboth, Lewes, Milton and Milford all within half hour ride. Longer stay would have allowed for an Ocean City, Maryland visit as well. Great location and a great time!

Charming Cottage on the Beach where Mermaids are Plentiful and the Ocean is Steps Away

  • 4 of 5

True to its description, this really was a Mermaid Cottage - just the right size for my family with mermaids playing a starring role in the decor. My toddler son loved exploring the closed in porch and playing with the games that were provided. Beach access is literally steps away from the back door. Wish I had more time to spend relaxing on the quiet Slaughter Beach.

Loved our stay at Mermaid Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The cottage was very nice and cozy. Our dog loved the fenced in yard! The closeness to the beach was great. We would definitely come back.

Privacy and comfort !

  • 4 of 5

We just got home from our stay, we really enjoyed how private the beach was ! We loved that our dog could be apart of our everyday beach trips without any worries! The house was everything we needed; the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the view. You cannot see the ocean from the house, if a little maintenance was done I believe you would be able to see the ocean. The front yard being fenced in was also really nice for our pup! Thank you for the memories !

Very nice location. Very comforatbale and well supplied, felt like home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, very friendly neighbors, great location with the beach just steps away. Plenty of games and fun activies. Very close to many attractions, Dogfish Head Brewery was amazing and Broadkill Beach was fun. Would absolutely stay here again. Nora was wonderful with giving us any information we needed.
