Very Nice

The house is in great condition and accommodated our family of 8 very well. The short walk to the beach was excellent and pool was tremendous. Definitely will be a repeat customer.

Thanks so much for the great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent week at Mermaid Cottage. The shower head fix worked great and the maintenance team was quick. Your decor is so great at Mermaid cottage and we loved the paint colors. :) 

The pool and beach, and grill all worked out great and were very nice. The beds were all comfortable and the kitchen was so well stocked.

Relaxing family getaway home with all you will need!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay here. The location was just perfect for us (2 families, 4 kids). The beach is so close and the pool was as well. The unit had lots of appliances and dishes to use in the kitchen. It also had a great beach wagon and so many sand toys. Our kids had a great time here. The neighborhood was nice and clean. The property had a great amount of space in the rooms and was just as described. Kathy was very responsive and helpful whenever needed. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting here!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house was extremely clean and smells new. It looked exactly like the photos. We enjoyed our dog joining us and there were plenty of places to walk her. It was also very secure and walking distance to the beach. We will be booking again next year!
