About Laura Keegan

We both grew up in different parts of the country but always spent time at different oceans every year from Florida, Jamaica and California to the Jersey Shore. We knew we wanted to live by the ocean and once we saw this island we fell in love with the lifestyle and beauty of Anna Maria Island. We traded snow for sand and have never looked back. We hope you enjoy a bit of island life, we welcome you to Mermaid's Cove.

Laura Keegan purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Laura Keegan chose Anna Maria Island

We chose the location because of the beautiful beach that we could easily walk to. The area is relaxed and quiet but you are close to activities nearby for shopping or dinner. Also, we chose the beach as it was one of our favorites on the island, more quiet yet gets some gentle surf sometimes too and is great for fishing. Good area for skimming, kayaking and also for surfing when the waves are up. Can ride your bike to many shops/restaraunts.

What makes this townhome unique

The beach on 65th street is wonderful. The large, heated, screened pool and patios are fantastic. One of the largest pools on the island and one of few screened ones. When the surf is up, it's delightful to sit outside by the pool or go for a night swim and hear the waves and see the many stars at night.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our guest book at the home:

"Our annual sisters with daughters get away enjoyed a week on the island. The beach, the pool, and the beautiful weather...made for a very good time. Thank you."

Clean, beautiful house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for my destination wedding and we couldn't have been more pleased with this house! The house and pool was very clean, and all of the rooms were exactly as pictured. The master bedroom was huge and gorgeous, and served as a great backdrop for my bridal getting-ready photos. The beds and bedding were super comfortable, all of the appliances and air conditioning and everything worked perfectly, there was plenty of bath and beach towels and it was very nicely decorated. We were within walking distance from the beach, close to everything we wanted to do on the island, and on a nice little quiet residential street. Laura was really responsive to email, answered all of our questions quickly and easy to reach once at the house. She also gave us lots of great restaurant and other recommendations. The price was really competitive too! I loved being able to spend my wedding week with my whole family here, and would definitely stay again!! Thank you Laura!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We are quite familiar with the Anna Maria Island and have stayed at several places (we have family so we have stayed quite a bit in the area). This was by far the best accommodations we have had. The pool was absolutely wonderful. We had two little ones with us so they preferred the pool to the beach so this was great. Thanks so much Laura and we will surely be back!

Fun stay for whole family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six (me and husband, 3 kids (8, 5 and 3 years) and my mom) stayed at Mermaid's Cove in early June and LOVED IT. The set-up was perfect, allowing our girls to share the sweet pink room, my oldest son to have his own space, my mom had the first floor bedroom and bathroom, and my husband and I indulged in the space of the master. The kids would wake up each morning and play with the toys they found in the closet until it was time for breakfast. The kitchen was great--lots of space and had everything we needed. Pool was AWESOME! My kids would have stayed at the pool everyday! Loved having outdoor table and chairs for quick snacks or easy dinner from the grill. Overall, a comfy, homey, fun place to stay!

The home was beautiful and very spacious. It was perfect for our large family.

  • 5 of 5

There was so much space for our many children to run and play. We never felt cramped. The home offered all the amenities you could ask for. The pool was amazing, a lot of screened in space. Great for keeping the kids in, and the bugs out. It was just a short walk to the beach. Also, there was a trolley stop at the end of the street. A perfect way to travel the island for free. It was perfect for two large families vacationing together
