About the property

Charming coastal cottage across the street from the ocean.

OCEAN DRIVE BEACH. The cutest house at North Myrtle Beach at the corner of Ocean Blvd and 9th Ave South. Unique 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage built in 1950. Original heart pine ceilings and mermaid decor throughout. If you prefer to stay outside of the common condo-boxes, this is the place for you! With the sleeper sofa, she sleeps 6. Cheery colorful and surprisingly quiet due to the solid block walls. Outdoor shower, tile floors, covered porch, minutes to dining, entertainment, and shopping. We consider toy breeds/20 lbs and under. No exceptions. Non-smoking cottage.

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

Couldn’t ask for me. Close location to the beach and lovely neighborhood. Very pet friendly. We were concerned before arriving that it would be too cold inside, but the heat works well and the place is just perfect.

Our dogs enjoyed their walks on the beach. Our daughter was especially pleased with the Mermaid Decor.

Our only regret is we couldn’t stay longer. During our stay it was extremely quiet and peaceful.

Thank you for sharing your beach cottage and we look forward to visiting again sometime in the summer.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This cute little bungalow was just perfect for our Mother-Daughter get-a-way! Clean and convenient to everything, but especially the beach!! It was great to be here off season and have so much privacy on the beach as well as the neighborhood...which is very residential and quiet. We always felt very safe to walk and play on the beach any time of day. There were beach towels, chairs, and an umbrella (and toys and buckets if you wanted to build sand castles) for enjoying time on the beach as well as everything you might need inside for making dinner or just relaxing. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We hope to return again and again!

We LOVED staying at Mermaid Manor!!!

  • 5 of 5

This trip was for our parents 40th wedding anniversary. We need a place to stay at that allowed dogs, because my mom wasn't going to let me leave her grand dog with a pet sitter. So happy to have found The Mermaid Manor! Copper enjoyed it just as much as the rest of us. We hope to come back soon! The only thing in which isn't a fault of the owners is the traffic noise. Overall it was a great place to stay at close to the beach and North Myrtle Beach strand. Also Victoria is the best she is very quick to respond to your emails, texts, and calls.

Perfect beach cottage close to the ocean

  • 5 of 5

Mermaid Manor was perfect for our family of three adults. We rented in 2015 and again in May 2017 and both times loved this cottage! The beds were comfy, as were the sofa and love seat. The kitchen table with raised seating was perfect for dining or playing cards. The convenience to the beach access was also a plus. The cottage included linens on the beds, and was well stocked with towels, hand towels, wash clothes, as well as kitchen clothes/towels. The area is relatively quiet at North Myrtle/Crescent Beach area, yet just blocks away from shops, grocery store, etc. The owner is very prompt in correspondence, and I recommend this to singles, couples or families with children. There are two bedrooms, one bath and the kitchen/living room is one large open area. One bedroom has queen bed and the other has two twin beds. The living room sofa is a sleeper sofa. There is no dishwasher, nor clothes washer/dryer, but we still found this be a very relaxing vacation cottage. We will definitely return!

A wonderful get away.

  • 5 of 5

The homes location is great; shops, beach and yet quite. The homes interior is clean, well furnished and many kitchen/bathroom essentials present, we loved the fences in yard for our kiddos to run around in. The owner was prompt to answer any questions I had through the process and wonderful people to work with. I would highly recommend this place but also want to keep this manor a secret :).
