Ghost Girl At My Family Beach House


At one point I was at my cottage in Florida last summer. It was built in 1907 and bought by my great grandfather a few months after it was built. Before there were other beach houses but soon plowed down because they were falling apart. (I think they were built in the 1800's.)

I stayed in a room with my cousins and all was well the first night. It gave me a weird vibe though. When I stepped into the room I felt light headed and got the feeling that someone was watching me but shook it off.

Alright, this was the first time that I stayed in that particular room. My old room was taken because my cousin got married and needed a room for him and his new wife so me and my three cousins slept in his old room.

The second night was my first experience. I woke up in the middle of the night for some reason. It was around 2:30 and I heard a little girl giggle. I thought it was one of my little cousins who woke up and was playing with her toys or something but I went to check in their room but they were dead asleep. I went back into my bed and noticed that my blankets were pulled off. By then, I was so tired that I didn't think anything of it. A few minutes later I was almost asleep but I heard a girl whisper in my ear and said, "wake up! It's time to go swimming!" I was scared out of my mind. My cousins were all asleep and I was the only one awake. That was the last time I seen her activity that night.

The next day I asked my cousins if they heard anything and they said they didn't. I told them what happened and they said that I was so tired I was probably dreaming while I was awake.

That night. I made sure to stay up until 2:00 in the morning to see her. Sure enough I did. I saw a little girl about the age of 8 skip down the stairs. I went to follow her and I found her at the edge of the stairs sitting there and laughing. She saw me and said, "Hello! I'm ready to go swimming!" I ran up the stairs as fast as I could and forced my self to sleep.

The next morning I told my cousins and at this point we were all freaked out. They said that last night one of them went to the bathroom and something threw a hairbrush across the bathroom and giggle.

Again, that night we all stayed up. We recorded some EVP's like they do on the ghost show. We asked her a few questions and then went back to sleep.

The next day we listened to them. We heard it very closely and heard a girl say, "Anna." We decided that the girl's name was Anna.

We didn't see much of Anna the next few nights. On the last day we asked our grandpa if he knew anything. He said that his dad say (our great grandpa) that about a hundred years ago a girl drowned in the ocean and her name was Anna and she was 8.

We told our grandpa that we saw Anna and he told us that when he was a kid he saw the little girl himself but wasn't too sure and finally told us that he saw her since we were the only ones that saw her as well. My cousin said that when he slept in there that Anna used to talk about going swimming and giggling.

Let me tell you what Anna looked like, She was see through, of course, she was wearing a navy dress and her hair looked wet and her face was pale and her lips were blue and her blue eyes were sunken in.

This summer me and my cousins will be on the lookout for Anna. We'll try to take pictures and see if we find Anna.

Sorry if this was long! Thanks for reading!

That story made me feel very emotional when I read it, if I were you I would've talked to Anna, I would say, 'How old are you? What is your name? Are you alright?" and I would be supportive and friendly, but I suppose if that really were me I would be freaking out as well! 😆 Anna seems like a lovely girl and it makes me sad to think about what she has gone through and how lonely she must have been! 😭 😢

It is sad to see a little soul wondering there by herself. Do you want to help her to cross over to be with her loved ones? Tell her to go see the light where her mom and dad are, they are waiting for her on the other side.

A girl who died about 100 years ago is showing herself up!...Oh My!...U have to be lucky to see her,Seriously! Well let me tell You what I feel she's very young (only 8) so please don't do anything that might upset the little girl. If you happen to see her again, tell her politely that it's now time she should leave this place (and must cross-over to the other world). Yes, this you should tell her even if she's not harming you.Well,just an opinion.

Very Interesting I think you should research the house and see if there is more information on it and its ocupents around the time Anna lived there, just an idea. Thanks for sharing!
