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.

Amazing Vacation at Mermaid Cove

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house. It is 4 separate units that sleep up to 12. All the units were clean, air condition was cold, and courtyard perfect for a bbq and social time. Keith keeps the place in top condition and checks in daily to make sure all our needs were met. I recommend this house to all groups looking to be close to all the action, but also tucked away for privacy.

Adorable spot, great location!

  • 5 of 5

A few friends in the group arrived early before me and I booked the place. They were allowed to keep their luggage at the rental office while waiting for the place to be ready. They were given the keys without me being there. Very convenient! The rest of us arrived and fell in love with the place. Adorable decorations, great location on quiet south Duval. We rented bike and scooters for the week - which is located across the street and about a half a block away - and had plenty of space to lock them to the railing walking up to our front door. Banana Cafe and the smoothie place are next door and made it very convenient for breakfast in the morning. We did take out some days that we had early excursions booked. The common courtyard in Mermaid Cove was perfect for drinks and socializing before heading out on the town. The separate bungalows made it great for privacy and getting a group ready to go out. Great spot for a group of friends and couples traveling together. Hope to stay here again in the future! Thanks Mermaid Cove for a great vacation!

Soooo this was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for a big group. I literally have nothing bad to say. It's worth every penny you spend. I'd give it 10 stars if I could. Everyone has there own areas when they want them and then the social spot on the deck in the middle. Thanks again

Great decision!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Key West for the wedding of one of my children. (The newlyweds had their own place.) My other three children, their spouses and children and my husband and I stayed at Mermaid Cove. It worked perfectly for us! The enclosed courtyard was wonderful for little kids as they were essentially "locked in" and we didn't have to constantly corral them. Each family had their own space, yet we could gather as a group when need be! We did have an AC issue the first night, but it was remedied before bed the next night. They are very prompt in taking care of problems. Having a washer and dryer onsite was extremely handy as well. There was a new establishment next door that had installed security lights that did not shut off. I simply called them each night and they turned them off for us. I know the Key West Hideaways property manager was working on the situation when we left. Definitely a wonderful setting for a large group. Location was fantastic! Wedding was wonderful :-)

I would definitely consider staying here again!

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
