Reviewed June 11, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Everything was wonderfull: the home with the comfortable rooms, the terrace under a palmtree and the beautifull view to the beach. We found all the things we were dreaming for.
The owners were very friendly. So we will come back!

“The most relaxing, beautiful and perfect vacation ever!”
Reviewed June 9, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The Cottages are just wonderful. The Location, the configuration, the surrounding is picture perfect. We've had the Meirmaid Cottage and felt right at home. It is spacious and well outfitted.The beach starts just a few steps away and provides an endless area of pure white sand.
The owner and all of his staff is very friendly and helpful.
We 've had a unforgetable vacation and will definitely come back as soon as possible!

We are returning once again to Mermaid Cottage at Cottages of Paradise Point. There is so much to enjoy: a delightful cottage on the white sandy beach, the proximity to all that Fort Myers Beach has to offer, spectacular sunsets at the end of the day, and owners Dennis and Lisa who always make us feel welcome. We hope to return year after year!

“This was a wonderful cottage with magical views of the Gulf of Mexico.”
Reviewed March 23, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We stayed at the Mermaid cottage for six weeks. The views were fantastic, the cottage was well cared for with wonderful decor, and the attention to renters was exceptional. Everything you could possible need, or want was immediately provided. The cottage was clean and well maintained. We will be back next year for another six week. Thanks to the caring of Dennis and his wife Lisa.Great place!!!

“Heaven is a place on earth!”
Reviewed January 5, 2015 for a stay in December 2013

This is the perfect getaway on the Gulf! We stayed in the Mermaid cottage with our two little girls (four and two years old at the time) for 11 days. The cottages are absolutely charming, tastefully decorated, fully equipped and in excellent condition. The beach starts right at the bottom of the stairs and is super-clean. The water is shallow for a long way out and safe for children. You get to see dolphins and breathtaking sunsets basically every day or can watch the pelicans nose dive for fish right in front of you.

The cottages are in a more calm area of Ft. Myers Beach, about 0.5 mi away from the pier, where you can find plenty of stores and restaurants of all sorts. We walked there with the kids a couple of times also in the dark, not feeling unsafe at all. A Publix store is only a five minute drive away.

We had a truly fantastic time and are CRAVING to go back there someday.

Just got done vacationing at the Purple Mermaid at Paradise Point in Fort Meyers Beach, Florida. White sand beaches and sunsets were beautiful. The Purple Mermaid where we stayed was very clean and had all the amenities of a hotel. Only steps from the beach with stunning gulf views. Dining and shops are within walking distance. Would definitely go there again and recommend you stay here if you're

“Best spot on the beach!”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The Mermaid Cottage exceeded our expectations! Booking, check-in and arrival were a breeze, but be sire to open and read your packed before leaving the office. We had to make a trip back with some signed forms. Not a big deal. The under-house garage was perfect for our car and storing sandy item we didn't want to take indoors. The house itself is fully equipped with anything one could ever need! Kitchen was stocked with dishes and utensils as well as small appliances and cookware. We had the use of hangers, laundry basket, broom, mop, vacuum, cleaning supplies and all other needs of home right in our cottage. Every unit even has its own washer and dryer. Didn't need to bring a thing; it was all there including, laundry soap, dishwasher detergent and paper products. They even provided the beach towels! Beautifully decorated home! Traveled with husband and two young girls who loved their pink zebra print bedding on two twin beds in the 2nd bedroom. Hubby and I enjoyed the kind-sized bed, although the high-quality mattress was a little too soft for our liking, Others may enjoy it. Literally, feet from the beach with a great view. Children enjoyed the pool more than the gulf! Would wholeheartedly recommend the Mermaid Cottage to friends and family and hope to be able to stay here again!
