Two of us stayed for a week and we had a wonderful time. The cottage is clean and the kitchen well stocked with all you need . The owner was available through email to answer any questions you might have. We explored the entire island ... Went to different beaches each day, then ate out for late lunches and then came back to the cottage to cool down and shower. Each night we went across the street to watch the sunset. A lovely, relaxing vacation! The cottage has everything you need for the beach: towels, chairs, floatation things , a cooler and even a cart to carry it all to the beach. Strongly recommend this cottage and the island for a fun filled yet relaxing vacation.

We stayed at the Little Mermaid with out two little doggies. We were so impressed that we will more than likely to go back. We didn't want to leave. It's like a little house with everything you need for a beach vacation. The dogs loved their fenced in yard, which made it nice for us as well!! It's right across the road from the beach, which made it very easy access. The house is beautiful and very clean! Not one spec of dust! It even has a shed with a full size washer and dryer with all the things you will need for the beach, floats, chairs, etc. There was plenty of parking. We didn't worry about anything!! When we go again we will no what we don't have to bring. It was a glorious stay. We especially loved the nautical theme in the house!! It was very beachy! Thank you Betty and Cody for making our vacation stay more than what we could have expected!! The dogs didn't want to leave either.

“Best location and value on the island”

My wife, son and I just stayed 5 nights at the Little Mermaid. It is a very clean, cozy and comfortable cottage with all the amenities you need. It is in a great location just across the street from the beach. The owners even provide beach chairs, umbrellas, rolling beach cart, boogie boards and coolers for your use. Betty the owner is very flexible and took care of all our needs. It was great to be only steps away from the beach and we noticed other families that were having to walk several blocks with all their supplies. The cottage is perfect for a family of 3-4. There is a bedroom with a king size bed and a pull out sofa in the LR, one full bath with shower and one 1/2 bath. Towels, linens, pots/pans, plates, utencils, coffee pot, and a gas BBQ grill are all provided. A full size washer/dryer is also provided...and you WILL need it! They also provide a book for visitors that lists the owners favorite restaurants with price categories and reviews which we found to be very helpful. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again. I highly recommend this property for the location, value and comfort.

“I didn't want to leave!”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The only thing I regret about our stay at this lovely little cottage is that I didn't plan a long-enough visit. Even my 9 yr old grand daughter noticed the great attention to detail, from the pretty, "beachy" decor to the little things that were thought of from the beach towels, toys and chairs to a cupboard of things like a first aid kit that could come in handy. The bed and sleeper sofa were super comfortable. We enjoyed the outside area and it was nice to have the outdoor shower to wash sand away. Naturally a huge plus is being literally a quick walk across the street from the ocean! One thing I thought about later is that it feels very cozy and almost "private" in spite of the actual close proximity to other places, and feels very safe. I loved it, and definitely want to come back.
