Charming bungalow with all amenities of home. Wood and tile flooring, 2 comfortable bedrooms; one has a queen size bed and the other a trundle bed that is either two twins or makes into a king, a fully equipped kitchen, spacious dining area and comfortable living area with flat screen t.v., books, games and DVD's to satisfy everyone. Indoor utility room has full size washer, dryer and sink. Enjoy the tropical backyard and take a nap in the hammock, cookout out on the courtyard or have early morning coffee or tea in the Sun Room.
Doug and I are empty nesters with the exception of our two Bichon Frise's, Bailey and Cali. We're beach bums first and foremost and we love to play golf, snow ski and travel.
Susan Engle purchased this bungalow in 2013
From the moment I turned onto this street I felt that I stepped back in time-that I had come full circle to a place I love. The 'Old Florida' ambiance was very reminiscent of the Florida Keyes back in the sixties, a childhood playground for Doug and I. It was a favorite place then and is now (a favorite hideout). Having a passion for travel and always looking for just the right place to stay combined with our background in real estate sales we stumbled upon this quaint neighborhood while 'taking a ride.' And there she was...a diamond in the rough, waiting...
Currently, 'The Mermaid House' is enjoyed by those who are seeking the perfect oasis for a relaxing vacation and we are thankful to provide the opportunity to be able to share it.
A special thanks to our family and friends that made it possible to recapture 'The Mermaid Houses' original beauty and charm. We hope you enjoy your stay and will return again in the near future.
Location, Location, Location! The Mermaid House is in close proximity to an enormous amounts of Sun, Fun and Culture. Within a 6 mile radius there is a plethora of shops, restaurants, spa's and markets to satisfy your needs.
From the Mermaid House it is approximately a one hour drive to Orlando (Disney World), Sea World, Epcot, Millennia Mall and the Outlet Shopping District. Beaches: The best beach is right down the road however it is a 25 minute scenic drive along the Atlantic Ocean to the famous Cocoa Beach or continue on for an additional 10 minutes to Cape Canaveral and the cruise line port. There are two Historical downtown areas to visit: Melbourne Historical Downtown (go over Melbourne Causeway) has shopping, antiquing, a playhouse and many restaurants, Eau Gallie Historical District (go over Eau Gallie Causeway) has an art venue and restaurants; each is only a 5 minute drive.
Golfing your cup of tea? Stay beach side: A 10 minute drive south to Spessard Holland Golf Course or across the Melbourne Causeway to Crane Creek Golf Course location on 192. or visit the Brevard Zoo in Viera, a short 15 minutes away. Enjoy!
Our excitement of getting there was quickly quelled by the age and condition of the house. My wife spent the first three days cleaning. The shower was three shades whiter after we cleaned it during the first three days. The cleaning included windows in the sunroom, counters in the kitchen and most horizontal surfaces in the living area including the floor. The weather was cold and the heat pump in the living area barely kept up with the cold and there was NO heat in any other area of the house. There was a daybed in the living room for TV watching. It was so uncomfortable that you couldn't set there for more than 2 hours. Most of the nice chairs outback are broken. The bathroom is so small that only one person barely fits. The owner and manager are very nice people and did help with a few issues, but this was a very disappointing Florida vacation mostly because of the house and partially the weather. Would not rent again at half the price.
What a perfect place for our honeymoon! We will be returning. So clean and comfortable. We married on the beach and then we all walked back to the house for a wonderful reception. Our families and friends enjoyed the house as much as us. Grilling in the back, sitting around just enjoying the ocean breeze, and taking walks on the beach.with our dog...who could ask for more. We felt like it was our home after staying there for 2 weeks. The neighbors are wonderful. Our dog loved it too! Susan is very sweet and helpful. She has all the right connections to make a stay in her home perfect. Just ask and she delivered.
