Ella's Mermaid beach house was perfect for our girls weekend. It was the cutest beach house and had everything we needed and was within walking distance of the beach and boardwalk. Ella was an excellent host and answered any and all of my questions in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend staying here for the perfect beach getaway!

Our stay was awesome! The house is in the best location. We never walked to the beach from the house, but we did drive 5 minutes to a very private section of the beach. Walking distance from bars, gas station, trolley stops. The house had everything we needed for the 4 days we were there. The cable selection was VERY limited, but the living room tv had Netflix so that helped. The patio was great, & we LOVED the outdoor shower. Would definitely recommend to someone who wanted a simple place to stay!

This house is in the best location! It is walking distance to many restaurants and bars. Also, it is only steps from the beach. The house was clean and cozy. It fit all 6 of us comfortably. Ella was super responsive and gave us the code to get in well in advance. Thanks for a great stay Ella!

Pictures really do not do the Mermaid Cottage justice. It is cuter than you would expect, unbelievably clean, and convenient to everything. It is just a few blocks from the beach and the location on the beach is close enough to walk to everything including the pier, but far enough away to not be crowded. The outdoor area and outdoor shower are also a big plus. The beds are very comfy which you do not always find in more commercial rentals. I would definitely recommend Ella's place. It is not necessarily any less expensive than some of the more updated high rises nearby, but if convenience and space are what you are looking for, it cannot be beat.

I am a retired real estate broker. I enjoy traveling in Europe, England, Ireland and America. I like to read especially books by John Sandford, Jeffery Archer, David Baldacci, John Grisham, Jeffery Deaver and Gillian Flynn. My favorite musician is Adele. I love Mardi Gras on Pensacola Beach and am a 25-year member of "The Mystic Krewe of Nereids" which are mermaids. I first visited Pensacola Beach in 1981 and fell in love with the Island Paradise. So I moved from New Orleans to Pensacola Beach in 1982. My life motto is: "Love your neighbor as yourself." It would be my pleasure to be your host at my home on Pensacola Beach. If I'm a guest at your home, I will treat it just like it was mine.
