About BARBIE EVERETT

My husband and I built this unit in 2005 and have successfully rented it out ever since. We have another family home in the community and are down there almost every weekend from May until October and always New Years Eve. We have been coming to the Cape for almost 30 years and have as many friends that live there as we do in our hometown of Tallahassee (2 hours away). I am very fortunate to have a good friend who lives right down the road, Glenn, who does my cleaning and maintenance.

We love to fish, snorkle and go boating in the bay as often as we can. We love the beach, especially in the fall and early spring but scalloping is our favorite sport and we do it every chance we get during season, July to September.

BARBIE EVERETT purchased this townhome in 2005

Why BARBIE EVERETT chose North West Florida

Affordable for the small family that does not want to share a more expensive house with a ton of people in order to pay the weekly rate.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi, Barbara. I meant to send you an e-mail once we returned, but work intervened. We had a great trip. The weather was wonderful and the location perfect.



The house is in a great location. Close to both beach and bay. The house is very clean and well-maintained, not your typical rental house. The screened-in porch is a great place to have coffee in the morning, with a distant view of the bay. Furniture is comfortable and linens are nice quality and in good supply.



We met Glenn (?) after we arrived and he said to call him if we needed anything. It was good to know that there was someone there, nearby, if we had a problem (which we never did).



I was a little apprehensive about staying in a "pet friendly" house, as you never know what you might find. But, we didn't need to worry. Everything was fine -- you would have never known that a pet had been there. We made sure we left it just as we found it. Our dog had a blast -- a non-swimmer before her trip, she ventured into the gulf several times during our week-long stay. She met several other dogs who loved to run, play, and swim and she just had to fit in. We were all disappointed when we had to leave on Sunday!



Although we usually pack a lot of kitchen supplies, it was nice to find the basics already in the house.



We loved the area and will be returning. Kayaking in the bay, hiking in the state park, walking on the beach, eating oysters............what a vacation!

Super friendly place

  • 5 of 5

The description was accurate, it was clean and well maintained, the owner was fantastic, friendly and kept us informed as to what was in the area, eg restaurants etc. We have already recommended this listing to other friends. We loved the restaurants in Port St. Joe and also Apalachicola, we went to Wakalla Springs and had a great day, we also went to the Dixie Theatre in Apalachicola which was great, we golfed and the golf course was good. This listing was well equipped, and had everything we needed and felt like a home and comfortable.

Great house, great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at the Blue Mermaid. Barbie was extremely easy to contact and very responsive and accommodating as we were making our plans as well as during our stay. Comfortable bed, nice decor, and good location. Shower water pressure was good. Beautiful views! From every window you see the trees, so it feels like you are in a treehouse, and you can glimpse the water of both the Bay and the Gulf from the porches. Very private and quiet. It is about a five minute walk at a leisurely pace to the gorgeous, serene Gulf beach, and in mid-August we had the entire beach to ourselves most of the time. One thing I had been worried about was that this is a pet-friendly rental and I have asthma. Well, there was no odor and we did not see so much as a single dog hair. We never saw any bugs in the house, either, which in this part of the country is pretty much unheard of. The screened porch was a nice place to sit and rock in the mornings while we enjoyed our coffee. Bay access is just short drive down the road and we took our canoe out every day, seeing dolphin, sharks, sea turtles, stingrays, an alligator, and a huge variety of birds, fish, and shellfish. If you love nature this is a great place to visit!

Super Cute and Clean

  • 5 of 5

Blue Mermaid was everything we expected; very clean and really cute décor! There were plenty of sheets and towels, and the beach toys and cart in the storage unit made our stay more fun. There were no keys when we got there but they responded immediately and we were inside within minutes. We completely enjoyed our stay. We had great communication with the owner and no problems whatsoever. I would definitely rent from them again.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Cape San Blas and it was amazing! We are actually going back again this year but the Blue Mermaid was not available for our dates. The property was well stocked and clean. I loved all the mermaid decorations! Even on the last day I was still noticing those extra details that I had missed. It was only a short walk to the beach and being in late Sept the beach seemed to be all ours on certain days. Our Lab, Dallas loved it too. Everyone we met on the beach were super friendly.
