Cute cottage on a nice quiet street

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our time in the cute cottage on the nice quiet street. Great spot. Close to beach, restaurants, groceries, etc. Shame we couldn't use the backyard more due to loud neighbors overlooking directly into space from 2nd storey...but there is a small private front yard that we used daily.

Perfect Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The beach cottage was a true treat. We were just a few houses from the beach and could hear the ocean waves at night. The beach access and area was very clean. The cottage had an outside front and back area that we could enjoy the outside ocean air with a glass of wine and conversation. The kitchen was fully stocked and we were able to enjoy meals in. The beach cottage was open, friendly and warm. We would highly recommend it and hope to book again for an upcoming wedding. Sandy was very accommodating and we were able to follow her to the cottage and she was able to answer any questions we had. Great experience!

Relaxing Beach time with my family!

  • 5 of 5

The moment we entered the Mermaid Cottage, my boys and I felt home away from home! We loved the short walk to the beach and biking to the local yogurt shop and restaurants!

My boys were fully stoked with the beach toys the house provided as well as the beach towels! It was especially fun during the month of December with the boats and houses decorated for the holidays. My family of 4 look forward to a return visit in the future!

Perfect cottage.

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect getaway from Dallas. This cottage has everything you need. Every morning I walked to the beach with coffee and every evening I walked back for the sunset. The outdoor hot shower was a special treat! I loved being able to walk everywhere! Even though we ate out most meals, when we cooked the kitchen had everything I needed. I highly recommend the mermaid cottage for a romantic getaway or small family vacation.

Family time at Mermaid Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Mermaid cottage twice now. We were thrilled to see that it was available again this year when we were scheduling our vacation. We are a three generation family: 60-somethings, 20-30-somethings, and a baby. The house was perfect for us. We love that that it has several comfortable areas to hang out: the lounge chairs in the front, the nice living room, the seating and table in the back. This works great for a family that loves to be together, but also maybe wants some separate quiet time too. We also love the well-outfitted kitchen since we love to cook. The location to the beach can't be beat! Also, we spent some time at the nearby playground with our granddaughter and walked to the grocery store. If I had one quibble, it would be that I wish all the door had screens on them. We were battling flies all week. And sleeping in the little extra house in the back would have been such a joy if we could have kept the door wide open with a screen in place. But really, we loved our week at Mermaid Cottage!
