Great House, Great Location and AMAZING service!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in the Mermaid House for Spring Break and it was perfect for us. Let me start by saying how wonderful and accommodating Angela and Rosemary were. We were booking fairly close to the date of our stay and Angela was fantastic in helping us line things out. Also, we made a last minute decision to drive straight through and asked if we would be able to pay for an extra night and check-in early. Not only did Angela and Rosemary make that happen, they got us codes to the house super fast and even left a light in for us. We were sooooo happy to settle in to the beautiful, convenient and super clean house after a long day of travel and traffic.

The decorations were beachy and cute, the kitchen fully equipped, towels in the closets, bicycles in the garage and floaties and toys throughout the house for kids too. We had many meals and game nights at the HUGE dining room table and sat around the pool outside to enjoy the weather.

We have never traveled with a pet before and were nervous about what “pet friendly” meant. Just that....friendly for our little schnauzer. No odors from prior pet guests, no stains or hairs...super clean and fresh.

The only thing that I could say would make it a 5++ on the Star scale would be a heater for the pool or hot tub. It’s a huge pool and super nice but a little chilly in March. We hope to come back during the summer and enjoy it while it is a little warmer.

Great house, well equipped, clean, great owners and we loved the bikes! Rode them EVERYWHERE!! We will be back!!!!

Nice layout, excellent location, interior nice, 4 bedrooms!, however back yard and pool disappointing. Pool not heated, deck needs replaced and furniture including grill needs updated.

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our vacation staying at the Mernaid house! Great location, great pool, plenty of room for everyone. Angela was so nice to work with and very quick to respond. The golf cart was kind of fun but it never would go faster than 10-12 miles per hour so we were afraid to drive it very far so that was a little disappointing but other than that, everything else was wonderful and we had a very nice time. Would definitely love to stay there again!

Nice location

  • 3 of 5

This house was a lot roomier than what it appears in pictures and on the outside. For the most part, it was a decent stay, I have stayed in WAY worse but I do have a couple of complaints. The golf cart had expired tags, and we paid to rent it but were unable to drive it more than once because the battery's were so corroded that my husband had to get off and push it up a hill with a line of traffic behind us. After the battery was charged all day and night, there were other golf carts zooming past us not to mention cars behind us. When we first walked in there was a lady cleaning the pool, and the pool did not appear to have been cleaned at all, there was debris everywhere, so not sure what she was even doing to the pool. Also, upon our arrival there was a cockroach so big I thought it was a beetle on the ceiling in the dining room, along with several other cockroaches we found scurrying out from underneath kitchen hand towels we picked up and out of drawers. There was also someone elses hair on our bed sheets when we pulled down the covers on our first night. We also found what appeared to be blood stains on our bed skirt, and the towels were also all stained. My dogs also kept finding left over food (not from us) under couches, and cracks between cabinets and under the fridge. The property manager was easy to get ahold of by phone call only, she did not respond to messages on here after we paid our payment. We also had no clue how to get into the house, because a gate code and house key information was not messaged to me, or on any of the paperwork, so I had to call for that.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend staying at this house. It is close to the beach and a lot of great restraunts. Highly recommend Pompano Joes. We had 6 adults and 2 kids and we all had plenty of room here. We can't wait to return and would definetly stay here again.
