Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This place is a short barefoot walk to the beach which makes it handy for running back and forth as needed. The house is nice, but I wouldn't recommend a 4 person family. With only one bathroom and small bedrooms, 2-3 is best. Nice screened -in porch but the landscape is messy and not fun to look at. Outdoor shower needs some help.

Overall it was great, they just need to attend to some details.

We would rent it again.

What a sweet place.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was just right. It was recently renovated, had everything we needed, was comfy, and had a cute lanai and nice outdoor space, too. It is just steps to the beach and close to Ginny and Jane E's, where you can get great sticky buns and other baked goods, wonderful breakfast and lunch items and cool gifts. We would definitely stay here again.

Found Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was renovated before our arrival. Everything very tasteful. New appliances in the kitchen.

It's wonderful for a week ore more holiday on this wonderful island. We enjoyed breakfast on the screened lanai.

Just a few steps to the most beautiful beach section of the island.

Thanks to Matt from annamariaparadies for supporting us in everything.

We definitly will come back!

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Mermaid's Purse! It was so comfortable and had everything you needed. The location was perfect; just two houses from one of the prettiest beaches we have seen. Beach towels, beach chairs, and umbrellas were furnished, which was great. Check in and check out was easy and fast. We would love to stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone wanting a laid-back, relaxing vacation!

The Perfect Cottage for a Week-Long Getaway for 2 or More

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mermaid's Purse for a week during Spring Break. We had a 2-year-old and an elderly grandparent in tow and the place was simply perfect for our stay. Grandpa stayed in the guest bedroom and our toddler stayed with us in the master in a crib we rented. (You can rent all sorts of kids stuff on the island). We ate breakfast on the lanai (screened porch) every morning then walked the few yards to the beach for a full day of activities. Before dinner, we wandered back to the beach to watch the gorgeous sunsets.

The location can't be beat. The cottage had everything we needed: beach chairs, sand toys, beach towels and kitchen items we neglected to buy. You can walk or bike to great shops and delis from the cottage.

Although we ate out almost every night, our favorite dinner was the one we made at the cottage. We grilled steaks and asparagus on the grill and roasted potatoes in the kitchen, then ate by candlelit on the screened-in porch. Perfection. And no need to worry about reservations.

The bedding was comfortable and the air conditioner worked great the one night we used it (we prefer to spend our days and evenings without air conditioning and with the windows open, feels more like a vacation!).

The decor was a bit kitschy, which is the only negative in my opinion. The couches, though comfortable, were worn and the house is full of mermaid decor, which isn't my thing, but hey! It fits in with the theme of the island.

We'd definitely stay again.
