Quaint Beach Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, comfortable, clean beach cottage. Loved the decor and the house fit our family perfectly. The weather wasn't great so we didn't swim from the beach but we enjoyed walking the beach and seeing the horseshoe crabs. Fully stocked with fun family games too ! We drove to Lewes and enjoyed the town and nearby State Park. We are from a "land-locked" state and the Mermaid House gave us an authentic beach experience!

Great access to the beach. The fenced yard was excellent for my dog and the house was charming and clean. Would definitely stay here again. The owners were also very accommodating, since I was only going to be there for a night they allowed an early check in and a late check.

Mermaid Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This beachfront house had fenced-in yards (front and back) for our dog's freedom and exercise. It was clean and adequately provisioned for our 5 day stay. Appreciated beach accessibility and serenity. Enjoyed peaceful evenings with a bottle of wine. Yet, met and enjoyed the company of a few locals while there. Visited Rehoboth, Lewes, Milton and Milford all within half hour ride. Longer stay would have allowed for an Ocean City, Maryland visit as well. Great location and a great time!

Charming Cottage on the Beach where Mermaids are Plentiful and the Ocean is Steps Away

  • 4 of 5

True to its description, this really was a Mermaid Cottage - just the right size for my family with mermaids playing a starring role in the decor. My toddler son loved exploring the closed in porch and playing with the games that were provided. Beach access is literally steps away from the back door. Wish I had more time to spend relaxing on the quiet Slaughter Beach.

We had a great time! The cottage was very nice and cozy. Our dog loved the fenced in yard! The closeness to the beach was great. We would definitely come back.
