EASY will be this vacation from packing-- throw in the bathing suits and beachy attire-- to planning-- why not wake up and see where the gulls take you?
You'll make memories at Mermaid Bay.
About the owner: Hi Fellow Beach Lovers! I'm a former tourism director now turned full time writer. I built Mermaid Bay Beach Cottage in the 90s and happily raised my daughter Alex here. There was no finer place for a child to grow up connected to the rhythm of the tides and small town Southern sensibilities. We welcome you to share our serene shores with you and your loved ones.
Why the Owner Chose Cape Charles: If you're like me, body packed, sterile beaches with expensive blocks-away parking raise your blood pressure. Instead recharge, relax and reconnect on quiet sands where eagles and osprey soar. Kick your shoes off on the porch and step right onto your own secluded, sandy beach with miles of natural beach to explore. Tucked away yet an 8 minute easy drive to our lovely hometown of Cape Charles. Bistros, shops, day spa, first class golf courses and most importantly-- friendly, helpful people. :)
The Unique Benefits at this House: Pets negotiable.
