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.

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!!

We stayed 1 week in April,& wished we stayed the month. Absolutely loved everything ! The location was perfect,right across the street from the beach. We could actually unlock our car from the beach chairs.Our only disappointment was that the Little Mermaid was already booked for the time we wanted for 2015. Betty however gave us a list of properties she knew of that may be available. What more could you ask for !

Mom and Daughter Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I just spent a great week in one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited. The Little Mermaid and owners, Betty and Cody were THE BEST!!! Everything we needed for the perfect beach vacation was available. My perfect beach home would be something just like The Little Mermaid...picket fence, palm trees, the beach, and pretty flowers plus enjoying time with my daughter. The only thing we would change would be to stay longer!!! We would definitely stay here again!

A real beach house

  • 5 of 5
I don't even know where to start… this was the perfect place for us. I stayed here with my auntie last Oct. and we had the best time here. Not only was the place clean and organized, it is very well decorated with a tasteful beach theme. The owner was available when I couldn't figure out how to work the tv and she was so sweet about it. She came to greet us and show us around too. There is an outdoor shower to rinse off the saltwater and sand and a shell patio that reminded us both of a time long past. The cottage is off the busy street and only a short walk to the beach. Everything was easily accessible and we really didn't need to leave the island. In the laundry room, there is plenty of beach equipment, so if you don't have an umbrella or a kite, you have no need to worry. I must also say one little funny comment about the sofa bed… it was comfortable! Albeit, with the ply wood support place under the mattress, I never knew that would do the trick, but it did and it was not even hard. I plan on going back with my husband this time in Sept. for two weeks. I have longed for the island and the little mermaid cottage all year now.

Adorable, Comfortable and Perfect in Every Way!

The Little Mermaid is absolutely adorable and only steps to the beach. Everything we could need or want was available and just as described. We found the cottage immaculate. Betty and Cody were inviting and welcoming. They provide their guests with a wonderful binder with useful information about the cottages' amenities but also about places visit on the island. We had a perfect vacation and would not hesitate to recomment The Little Mermaid. This vacation rental definately deserves 5 stars!

Charming, cozy, clean and comfortable cottage.

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time to AMI and we were so happy to have found The Little Mermaid for our stay. From the first communications with owners to the time we checked in, we received first rate service. We found the cottage equipped with everything we needed and appreciated the beach chairs, towels and cooler for convenience to the beach. The king bed and soft linens were very comfortable. Thank you for providing all the amenities in a clean, bright, stylish and cozy cottage. The walk to the beach is only a few steps away with an easy access. Even though we wanted to be "unplugged" for the week we appreciated the wi-fi and the cable TV. And having the washer and dryer came in handy so we don't have to take our sandy clothes back home. We hope to return to The Little Mermaid soon.
