Beach front cottage, dog friendly, fully furnished, we love the Marlin. Great sunsets. Clean quiet beach. We appreciate the extra parking place for family and friends who visit for the day. We love the Marlin!

Thank you Liz, for providing us with the greatest place to spend the winter. 6th year,have gone from 2 to 4 months. I would think you have a 95% repeat guest rate.So nice to see so many of the same people every year, we've made great friends over the years. The Marlin is the perfect place, right on the beach,...

We booked the Marlin for 10 days for a family celebration. Our parents celebrated 60 years of marriage. The Marlin is a quiet getaway directly on the beach. The owner and manager, Liz Barrett is very nice and checked in on my parents a few times when they were there by themselves. At 80 years of age, remote controls can...

What can I say.....Liz Barrett, and this location was a great find...the location, the cottage...right on the beautiful sandy beach....it was everything you could ask for. The property listing was right on the money, and making the reservation was a cinch! Nothing better than a tasteful cottage, with a lovely pool, laundry room, free parking, and fabulous private area overlooking...

Great place for a vaction! The bungalows were all awesome. Very clean, great rates, great staff. The pool is fantastic. The beach is even better. Can wait to get back. We really enjoyed out trip. Close to anything you would want to do, yet you feel you are secluded!

We stayed in Mermaid/Seahorse with 6 adults and 5 children in mid-May. We had everything we needed and had a wonderful time on the beach and in the pool. We would love to go again. The kids headed to the beach right after breakfast each morning, played and swam, took a shower and swam in the shaded pool in the...

We are back again! And we love the Marlin! So does our dog. We live in Florida and this is one of our favorite places. Everything you need is in this cottage. Washer/dryer, barbecue grill, 2 bedrooms, a fantastic fenced in deck area for our doggie. The area is much quieter than the Jimmy Buffet Margarita style at other beaches....

Our three grandchildren had soo much fun in the pool and especially on the beach. a lot of very close attractions to go and...

On the plus side, the proximity to the beach was great, and the beach itself was really nice. On the negative side, we booked this place at the last minute because everything else was taken. We stayed in the Dolphin knowing it wasn't going to be brand new, but the furniture, especially the sofa, was in pretty poor shape, and...

We stayed in the Mermaid/Seahorse with 7 adults and a dog. Couldn't have asked for a better location, more comfortable and more relaxing place for our family vacation. Many great restaurants nearby to choose from, but we hated to leave. Grilled out every night on the beach, talked and laughed around the campfire. It was hard to leave, but we...

“Make sure you check the cupboards before heading to the store. There was seasoning/spices, coffee, plastic cups, ect that was left from other renters.”

“We love the "Marlin" because it isn't connected to any other buildings/rooms. It has its OWN patio deck, table and chairs (that could be replaced for a larger one so you can eat dinner outside) and its own gate to the ocean, as well as to the pool. It has a fun beach feel without being tacky or too tropical.”
