Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We love the beautiful aqua water and white sandy beaches of Bradenton Beach and are proud to say we have just completed renovating and decorating this private stand-alone cozy cottage.

Why the Owner Chose Shell Cove:
We bought this cottage because it was a challenge to transform it from an ugly frog to the lovely princess mermaid and we liked that. We knew we could transform the rough jewel into a warm and romantic place for others (many from northern areas) to escape and enjoy the warm climates of Anna Maria Island.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Little Mermaid is no more than 50 steps to the beach. It's a compact, well-laid-out cottage. The large bedroom has a king bed, private bath with tiled shower, lots of drawers for your clothes, nice tropically landscaped and fenced yard, private free washer and dryer and private parking ten steps from the front door.
