Guestbook comments from the owner

We couldn't wait to get to Mermaid Pass cottage. Our winter this year has been very cold and lots of snow. Imagine you are starving and thirsty and suddenly see this oasis that all yours! The cottage is adorable and very clean, with a large master bedroom that has sliding doors to the deck and hot tub. Great kitchen and eating area, living room and lots of closet space. One bath has an old claw foot tub which would be great for kids bubble baths. The owners have given you everything you need to have a wonderful, casual vacation. There are two tv's in case adults and kids want to watch different shows. Also, getting on the internet is very easy. Just look at the first page of the cottage rules book. But who wants to be on the internet when you can go shopping, swimming, fishing, etc.? Check out the "board walk" for ice cream, candy and shopping, especially the $10 Jewelry store at the far end of the walk. What makes this place great is the convenience to everything you could possible want! The beach is across the street but be careful when crossing. Use the left side to cross over so that you won't have to contend with the on-coming traffic that turns onto the main street. Lots of places to walk dogs or stroll with your baby. 7-11 right across the street for morning paper, shell store, bait and tackle, etc. Even with all of this around you, there is no noise and you are all tucked away from the road. We visited Ybor City with a long time friend who gave us a city tour after we had a tasty meal at the original Columbia restaurant. Be sure and have a meal there. The waiters are dressed in formal attire, the pictures and artwork are great, especially the 1905 tile work; and, the chandelier is gorgeous! But, the atmosphere is very casual. We ate a lot of our meals at Foxys; we discovered that place last year and loved it then. Good food and low prices. The servers are friendly and the owner is always asking how everything tasted, etc. We had our 2 small dogs with us and they were very happy with walks and being on the deck. Charlie is very responsive to any questions you may have about the cottage or surroundings. Just ask. This is a great place to chill out and have fun! We will definltely come back.

2014 Vacation/Married

  • 5 of 5
This was by far one of the best vacations ever. Partly to do with we got married while we were there, but the cottage was perfect. Beach was two minutes away where we spent most of our time doing nothing except soaking up the rays. The cottage was exactly what we wanted, private but close to everything. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Easter break getaway

  • 5 of 5
Would recommend Mermaid Pass to anyone. Our family(5 with 3 teens) had a great week together. Close to the beach, room to spread out, all the necessities provided, and very clean. The gulf was warm enough for swimming but the hot tub provided a nice quiet diversion each night. We grilled, stretched out, relaxed, made some day trips, and had a great week spending time together. Worth it: boat trip to Egmont Key! Don't waste your money: Parasailing. Thanks for everything! Steve, Jill & kids

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Mermaid Pass. The location was so perfect that I did not need to drive my truck the whole time. We would just walk across the road and we were at the beach. The kids enjoyed the fact that they could come back to the house and go on their laptop when they got a little tired of the sun, but I stayed at the beach all day. I also loved having the grill on the back porch, we grilled steak and shrimp nearly every day. We will definitely look you up when we are ready to come back.

Thanks again,

Had a Great Time!!

  • 4 of 5
Mermaid Pass is a nice quiet cottage with all the amenities. It is perfect to spread out a bit, rather than be stuck in a super small hotel room. It is a very short walk to the beautiful beach, but you do have to cross Gulf Blvd which can be kind of risky (there is crosswalk farther up the street, but not where you would naturally cross). We were a bit worried that it would be noisy because the front of the cottage is behind a row of businesses, and there are rentals close on each side and Caddy's bar (popular spring break bar)has extra weekend parking nearby, but it was extremely quiet and very peaceful. The kitchen was well appointed and we had plenty of towels and beach items. We only really had 3 minor complaints..the hot tub was extremely dirty so we didn't touch it, the dryer left black marks on our clothes, and the shower pressure was non-existent (can't even get shampoo out of your hair!). It is a great place for the price and we had a wonderful time. The area is beautiful, the water and beaches are gorgeous and there is plenty to do. I would rent this cottage again. Have fun!!

Awesome Gulf Coast Retreat....

  • 5 of 5
Wow.... First off Checking in was a breeze... No lines, no waiting. The Photos do not do this Cottage justice... It is spacious, clean and well appointed, big enough for a large family's needs. Everything was provided, a fully equiped kitchen, and all the linens needed.
The White Sand Beach was just Awesome, clean, sunny and best of all just a few steps from the cottage, our days started out with fishing by the Bay which is almost outside the back door, and yes even my 12 year old caught enough fish for a fish fry, and then walking over one block at the front of the cottage to the best beach in Central Florida...
I have already reserved my time for next year, my family and I had a ball and we could not have asked for a better place to stay, we have stayed in many places over the years but this one was truly one of the best. From the cottage itself, the awesome hot-tub spa, the beautiful beach and the comfortable surroundings... I cant wait for my next trip.
Charlie thank you for having us, see you next year...

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We loved the location and everything about the house. Everything was perfect the way it was! Wouldn't change a thing!

Having stayed in numerous rentals down there, I think Charlie and Liz really have it together. Their house was warm, inviting, and immaculate! They know how to do it right and I was very impressed with everything. They had all the little 'extra' amenities. I think it was nice that they provide chairs and beach towels, too.

I'd give them an A+ rating!!

Specifically, we liked: the location, the quiet beach, the hot tub, the patio, the colors of the walls, the kitchen table, the big big comfy bed, the walking-distance from so many things, the front entry-way, the washer/dryer, the price, the mermaids, paying a cleaning fee so we didn't have to clean at 5am, the cozy family room, and just how easy it's been to arrange this with them. Couldn't have been better! Thank You!!!!

It proved to be a grand location for the group since everyone was rather on separate schedules—all could come and go to the beach or wherever on their own.
