Guestbook comments from the manager

Mermaid Cove was perfect. We had a group of 9 for a bachelor party. The location was perfect and the setup was ideal. If you have a group and you are looking for a place that gives you the togetherness and also the ability to have your own little sleeping section, Mermaids Cove is it. I wouldn't hesitate to rent or stay at this place next time i go to Key West.

Good times in Key West

  • 4 of 5

This space is in a great location on Duval St. with easy access to all that Key West has to offer. Go to the Rum Bar down the street and ask for Jill! We had a large group and it accommodated us nicely. The central courtyard was great for gathering as a group and entertaining as expected. Very easy check-in/out process as well.

Nice Location

  • 3 of 5

Nice location, walking distance to shops and southern most point. Each Cottage is unique in its own individual way. Was nice for family members. Upon arrival there was no clean sheets for the sleeper sofa, Management Company was called. They said would send someone over with sheets, never happened in four days. Units were what we call Key West Clean, tolerable but not really clean. Liked the location but not sure would return because response time (or lack of) of Management Company.

Owner's Response: Dear guest, we are very sorry to hear that we failed to respond to your issue on a timely matter. Our cleaning staff is working very hard to make the units clean and fresh for our guests, but unfortunately sometimes they miss something. I hope this was not and issue that ruined your stay. We will work on trying to eliminate these kinds of issues in the future. Best regards, Key West Hideaways staff

Great Location, Great House for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

I traveled with a group of about 8 people. The place is extremely well laid out. There was plenty of room for all of us. The courtyard is a great place to hang out and enjoy the beautiful Key West weather. Its within walking distance to all of the sights and sounds that Duval Street has to offer.

Perfect for Us!

  • 5 of 5

Our group included 4 couples with a desire to be together in a common area but with private sleeping accommodations. This eclectic property provided all our needs. It's location on the quieter end of Duval Street was enjoyed by all. We rented bikes and found all of Duval Street accessible. Randy represented the Owner well and the in/out process was painless. The security deposit was returned to us in a timely manner. We recommend this property!

The Perfect Bachelor Party Pad

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for a 13-person trip. The courtyard in the middle is a perfect atmosphere for cookouts and socializing. Right on Duval with easy access to the beaches, restaurants, and bars. Couldn't have been better. Thank you!

Great Value for Key West

  • 5 of 5

If you want to experience Key West like the locals do, then Mermaid Cove is for you. Quaint hideaway in the midst of historic Key West close to shops and few restaurants Mermaid Cove is excellent for family get-away. Great value for the money. Taste old Florida like the natives do.

Tropical and island motif is decorated around the property. This is a private secluded, secure locale.

We had our family reunion here and we totally enjoyed the accommodations. Our grand kids were able to play in the courtyard and we enjoyed walking to the beach and downtown.

Mermaid Cove is the place my family and I will be renting here every year for our family reunions.
