Old Florida at its Best

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, the house is comfortable, well stocked and just steps from the beach. We spent our days on the beach or at the nearby state park, swimming, paddle boarding, looking for shells and sharks teeth, and spotting wildlife. Darlene the property manager met us at the house, got us settled, and gave us great advice on local activities and restaurants. We could not have asked for a kinder or more helpful host. We will be back next year!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

I am a teacher, mother and runner. My in-laws had vacationed at the Mermaid House several times and raved about how beautiful and relaxing their time had been. When I was told I had a "fall break" last spring I immediately contacted my in-laws to schedule a much needed vacation in warm sunny FL. This place was PERFECT! My 6 year old daughter traveled with us. The water on the Gulf was warm and waves were small on most days, which is perfect for small children. My daughter and I spent hours looking for shells and shark teeth, swimming and relaxing on the beach. There is a small state park not to far from the property which I ran to several times. We went jet skiing and paddle boarding and we walked into town for dinner. The sunsets here are AMAZING! My daughter keeps asking me when we can go back. The best part was that we only needed to pack our clothes! Everything else we could have possibly needed was there for us. If you are in need of a quiet peaceful retreat I highly recommended the Mermaid House. You will not be disappointed. :)

The last 3 years this has been the vacation spot of our choice. We pack our personal items in a suitcase and board the plain...Everything and I mean everything is at the Mermaid House that you need to enjoy your vacation. From the sunrise in the morning to the sunsets in the evening your only feet from the beautiful beach it is breath taking. My husband loves fishing while I love the quiet of beach. Thank you Darlene for another great vacation. xoxo

Wonderful Gulfview Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Mermaid house, Darlene was more than hospital! We were steps from the beach, had beach equipment provided, we had our meals on the balcony looking at the Gulf. The house was extremely clean, well stocked, lovely beds and linens. Darlene was informative on the local events and amenities on the island. We would absolutely stay here again!

Our New Vacation Spot-and pet friendly

  • 5 of 5

As native Floridians and former beachfront luxury condo owners it takes quite a lot to impress us. And impressed we were. This home was exactly as advertised. The location and the home were both wonderful but what made this vacation stand out was the customer service and communication provided by Darlene. Our outstanding customer service began 2 weeks prior to our arrival. The dreaded red tide was present on the beach. Darlene took it upon herself to call and advise us of the situation and gave us the opportunity to reschedule if we so chose to. As we were really looking forward to some beach time we agreed that we would take the 'wait and see' approach. Thankfully, that issue resolved itself and once again we were counting the days to get to the beach. The day before we were to depart we took a pretty big hit from hurricane Matthew. Oh boy, here we go again....what happened next was a true show of character-Darlene offered us the option to reschedule our trip! How sweet was that especially since it was weather related. In spite of the set back we did eventually make it to our new vacation spot. Had a wonderful time in a lovely home. Darlene, we really want to come back for Thanksgiving! Please try and make that happen. Hope we see you soon.

Blessings,

Bobby and Patricia
