About Betty Ramsey

We love the beautiful aqua water and white sandy beaches of Bradenton Beach and are proud to say we have just completed renovating and decorating this private stand-alone cozy cottage.

Betty Ramsey purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Betty Ramsey chose Bradenton Beach

We bought this cottage because it was a challenge to transform it from an ugly frog to the lovely princess mermaid and we liked that. We knew we could transform the rough jewel into a warm and romantic place for others (many from northern areas) to escape and enjoy the warm climates of Anna Maria Island.

What makes this cottage unique

The Little Mermaid is no more than 50 steps to the beach. It's a compact, well-laid-out cottage. The large bedroom has a king bed, private bath with tiled shower, lots of drawers for your clothes, nice tropically landscaped and fenced yard, private free washer and dryer and private parking ten steps from the front door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Little Mermaid is as cute and accommodating as advertised. Everything a guest could need was available. Betty, thank you for all timely communications. Our time at The Little Mermaid was everything we hoped for. The notebook and the TV instructions were very helpful.

An Amazing Place to Relax and Enjoy the Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved this cottage. From the time we opened the door for the first time until the end of our stay, there was nothing we would have changed. It is only steps to the beach, yet offers a feeling of privacy and seclusion when the day is done. We loved the trolley system only steps from our door and also appreciated all the beautiful flowers and landscaping that the owner has added. We usually ate lunch at one of the nearby restaurants but enjoyed both breakfast and dinner sitting in our little courtyard. Just the right size for two people...we definitely hope to revisit.

Exceeded our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our month stay at The Little Mermaid tremendously. This little cottage is equipped with everything you need. Both the King bed and Queen sleeper sofa are very comfortable. The sheets and towels were also very nice. Having the additional half bathroom was a real bonus. It was a such a pleasure to have our own washer and dryer too.

We love this location on the island because it's just across the street from the beach.

Betty, the owner, is delightful and always available if you need her, plus full of information about the island.

GREAT BEACH COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5

This beach cottage was perfect for our family three. The proximity to the beach was great. The owners provided beach chairs, beach cart, umbrellas, and more which was so convenient. The walk to the beach across the street took a minute at most.

The beach has been replenished and was just beautiful. We arrived on Sunday and loved that the beach was not crowded at all that week. We enjoyed cooking on the outdoor grill and walking across the street each evening to watch the sunset on the water.

The owners were great. We had a change of plans and were able to check in a day early. There was an issue with the A/C unit in the kitchen area, and the owner bought a new unit and had it installed that day. We were at the beach, so it was not an inconvenience to us at all.

Great cottage and owners. We hope to visit again in the future!

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house. The location was perfect. Just across from beach. Everything you needed was provided. Perfect size for our family of three and we even brought along one of our daschunds- who LOVED looking out the doggie window. Owners were great. Would stay again if we are ever in the area.

Very cute well appointed beach cottage.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year spending Thanksgiving week at Little Mermaid and we loved it!! A lot of the "old Florida" beach cottages are being replaced with larger capacity oversized buildings that in my estimation are really out of place for the area. This is the real deal and though it is smaller in size it has a very cozy, comfortable atmosphere. The location is great and the beach is very quiet in that area. I cannot think of anything I would change about Little Mermaid and give it an A+. Hope to be there next Thanksgiving!!
