This property is ideal. THE BEST beach in the world is only 45 steps from our door, and great dining and fun bars are all in walking distance.

Enjoyed our stay at the mermaid cottage! Owners do a great job of comforts of home. Location is great and enough to see and do in the area if you are looking for something other than the beach. We wish we could have stayed longer! Hope to be back again! Thanks!

Super location

  • 5 of 5

We loved The Mermaid Cottage! Cute, cute, cute...perfect for my husband and I and our two little doggies. The private courtyard area was an unexpected, pleasant surprise. The open layout of the cottage maximized the space. The location was great...very short walk - less than half a block to the beach and about two blocks from the business/retail area. This afforded access to everything we needed while at the same time provided privacy and quiet. The owner was very responsive and helpful. We would recommend The Mermaid Cottage to anyone wanting to experience Clearwater Beach!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Mermaid Cottage! It was the perfect location for our family. Close to the beach, walking distance to many restaurants, shopping and places to have an evening cocktail. Already planning another trip back.

Lovely Seaside Property

  • 5 of 5

Mermaid Cottage has been recently renovated and is fresh and well-equipped. The owner was staying next door and was keen to make sure that everything was all right. The location is perfect with the beach nearby and Clearwater restaurants and shopping within easy walking distance. The garden area is nicer than suggested in the photos, larger than it looked and secluded. We enjoyed Mermaid Cottage and would happily stay again if we returned to Clearwater.

Perfect for our Family

  • 5 of 5

We really loved staying at the Mermaid Cottage in July! It was absolutely everything we needed for my husband and two little ones (ages 3 and 1).

Location is perfect, down a quiet little side street and the beach access is right there. It was easy to find and the off street parking was so convenient. When we arrived the cottage was perfectly clean and ready for us. Everything inside is updated in and in great working condition.

We absolutely loved the cottage! Beds were comfortable, the washer and dryer was so helpful, the showers were large and spacious. Oh and the outdoor shower was one of our favorite things! Coming back from the beach with two young kids in tow and being able to clean everybody down and cool off in that shower was amazing. Providing the beach umbrellas and toys was so helpful, it was one less thing I had to lug with us. I really can't think of one thing we would change about. It was our first family vacation and it will go down in the books as a winner. Thanks so much for allowing us to stay in your home! Highly recommend and if we ever return to Clearwater Beach again, this will be exactly where we would want to stay!

Cute cottage very close to beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here July 12-17, 2016. Very clean, very cute just steps to the beautiful Clearwater Beach. Everything you need is already here: beach towels, sand toys, beach chairs and umbrella, cooler. Quiet setting within walking distance to Pier 60, shops and restaurants and the Marina. We only used our car to get to the Aquarium to take our granddaughter to see Winter and Hope from Dolphin Tale. There is an outdoor shower which is very handy when coming back from the beach. Private outside area with table. Would definitely stay here again! Thanks Jen

Clearwater Beach

Perfect beach location! Enjoy Florida like a local and walk 45 feet to the white sugar sands of the Gulf of Mexico! No roads to cross or cars to park. Watch the sunset over the water from your front porch!

Walk to many restaurants and bars, clothing stores, souvenir shops, a fine cigar lounge and the world-famous Pier 60 with many fun activities and live music. Feel like venturing farther from your home-away-from-home? Catch “The Jolley Trolley” and let it take you anywhere you want to go from North Clearwater Beach to St. Pete Beach!

Many boat excursions and fishing charters are located at the Marina. Walk to a public pool...just minutes away (2 blocks). Jet-ski rentals and parasailing are located on the beach, and don’t forget to visit the Clearwater Marine Aquarium and see Winter the Dolphin!
