                                                        Charming, cute, and great location!

                                                        Omar S.Atlanta

                                                        This was our family’s first trip to Clearwater beach and we loved the mermaid cottage. Everything was clean on arrival and the location is perfect. Sixty second walk to the beach and 2 minutes til you hit water. Walk anywhere and everywhere or hop in the car and drive 3-5 minutes to other parts of north beach. Our cottage was stocked with beach towels and chairs (but we brought our own). Stopped at Publix and cooked breakfast at home every morning. Thanks for sharing your home and making it a great vacation!

                                                        Nice little place

                                                        Ryan M.

                                                        Exceeded our expectations. The weather was great the place was clean and the proximity to the shops and restaurants was within walking distance. The owners stayed on the property when we were there and were helpful and friendly. Extremely close to the beach! We will visit again and really enjoyed Clearwater Beach and the mermaid cottage!

                                                        Perfect location to the beach. Great place

                                                        Christine K.

                                                        We took our 7 month old for a beach vacation. It was perfect the mermaid cottage was clean and comfortable. The kitchen is full stocked with all u need for cooking. There is also a extra closet outside full of everything u need for the beach. We also loved the pizza shop right across the street great for the night u don’t want to cook. There are two rooms and two nicely renovated full bathrooms with walk in showers. We would stay here again perfect spot steps from the beach and a little away from the busy part of town but everything is in walking distance.

                                                        Adorable, clean, close to everything - LOVED it

                                                        Rena J.

                                                        We had a fantastic time in the Mermaid Cottage at the end of February. The place is literally just steps from the beach and is an easy walk to downtown with plenty of restaurants and things to do. We loved being somewhat away from "the strip" -- the cottage is nice and quiet but still felt accessible to everything. We walked and biked most places.

                                                        We arrived to a beautifully clean little cottage -- it's updated, bright, and very comfortable. Everything we needed for the beach (great chairs, umbrella, cooler, towels) and cooking (fully equipped kitchen) was available and we were pleasantly surprised to also find plenty of great paperbacks and games. You could easily rent the neighboring cottages for a larger group.

                                                        The property owner was incredibly responsive to questions and was very accommodating. We would 100% stay here again !

                                                        Almost excellent

                                                        John R.Coventry, CT

                                                        Generally, this was a good rental. It is in a convenient area, near, but not to near the commercial area of Clearwater Beach. The unit was spotless and well maintained, although some of the furnishing were on the tired side. The unit is very close to an excellent beach. It is well off he street and has a nicely private patio area that had a mix of sun and shade most of the day. When we arrived, I was a bit concerned to find that there is a another unit, a one-bedroom upstairs. That is not what I assumed would be true for a "cottage." Fortunately, the couple in that upstairs unit were very considerate, and we didn't hear anything from them. Both the bathroom are directly off the livingroom/diningroom area, an arrangement that is less than idea and might not suit some folks. Overall, I though the unit a touch small for a two bedroom unit. Would I rent this unit again. Yes, but not without first seeing what else is available.

                                                        Wonderful location

                                                        Rick C.Green Bay, WI

                                                        The cottage is in a wonderful location on the quiet side of the beach. It was everything we needed. It could use a little TLC.


                                                        Clearwater Beach, Clearwater, FL, USA

                                                        Perfect beach location! Enjoy Florida like a local and walk 45 feet to the white sugar sands of the Gulf of Mexico!

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!
