My husband and I loved staying at the Mermaid Cottage with our friends. It was the perfect weekend getaway. House is very clean and comfortable. Would definitely recommend!
Me, my sisters, and mom had a fun weekend getaway at the cottage. It was almost perfect, loved the private beach front, hardly saw any people. The house was very comfortably cool, nicely set up, and did not have ANY pet odor.
The only things that I was not totally pleased with was the filthiness of the place. I realize it is pet friendly, but pet hair all over the furniture, floor, etc could be avoided. Our comforter was very badly stained, and the water in the shower did not go down very well at all; till the end of the shower you were up to your ankles in water. We were a little surprised that we had to clean the house, and take out all the trash, (this was not mentioned on the site). There was less pet her when we left the cottage than when we came.
All this said I would still recommend this cottage, because of the wonderful location and privacy. We had a wonderful time. The owner was also very accommodating; however I would recommend new cleaning staff. :)"
Update on review....The owner called me personally after I posted this review and was very nice and said she will take care of the shower issue right away and make sure the cleaners are doing they're job! She was very concerned about the pet hair etc...I would recommend this cottage to a friend!!
The cottage is located in the slaughter beach, only couple steps away to the water. it provides mostl the necessity you need in the cottage; Nora is very nice to order a brand new playpen for my 4 month old. We planned a get away weekend after memorial day but unfortunately hit a raining/shower weekend. We stayed in the cottage for most of the time and devoured crabs from a local seafood company(that's right seafood) on light house road.
Slaughter beach is very quiet in September but with lots of dead horseshoe crab shells on shore. It does look like a slaughter field. LOL. I guess it would be much exciting to come at the hatching season when lots of red knots are around.
thank you for having us.
The Mermaid Cottage was really cute and had everything we needed.
A little dissapointed with the fishing..or the complete lack of any fish in the bay..
And found it very strange that we didn't see anyone swimming for the few days we were there. The bay is great for Kayaking or somebody learning to sail or wind surf..etc.
The cottage is very charming !
The cottage was nicely decorated and furnished with everything you might need to be creative in the kitchen, relax in the living room (TV, books, games), nice screened porch, outdoor furniture, etc. Campfire on the beach was nice under the stars. The beach itself is perhaps not the soft sand you are seeking, but it is not a terribly long drive to Camp Henlopen where we traveled each day we wanted a beach to relax on, we rode the Harleys to sightsee and dine out, rode bicycles and played tennis down the road a short distance.
Peaceful Quiet Perfect spot to find peace and quiet beautiful sunsets Delaware Bay Fishing gentle surf
