“pricy.....but the best”
Reviewed August 7, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

excellent view...was kinda pricy for an older bunglow...but would go back again as we (3 families) all had a great time and good communication with the realtor.

“Absolutely GREAT!”
Reviewed August 5, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Stayed from July 23-30, and cannot say enough good things. We had seven in the Mermaid-Seahorse, and loved every minute. The website was not wrong--it IS about 40 steps to the water, not just the sand, and I loved that.

The beach itself was idyllic; soft, white sand with gentle warm water. We saw dolphins, manatees, and a guy fishing on the beach caught a small shark, which was cool.

Would definitely go back!

“The best place for family vacation!!!!!!”
Reviewed May 19, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This is the amazing place for family vacation!!! We came with small kids and grandparents, Everyone enjoyed this place. The bungalow was nice and clean,4 bedrooms with 2 full baths, everything was there for us. The best thing was getting out from the house to the pool and then to the beach and ocean, eating on the beach bench, having food on the grill , a lot activities, very private, fireplace at night. The beach was long with white sand and the water in the ocean was shallow and warm with views of dolphins. This place is very safe and quiet with great location of ice cream shop and irish pub. Local attraction is bus, easy travel to Clear Water beach(only 15 min away) every 20 min. This brilliant place has everything you need for perfect vacation!!!!! We loved and missed it!!!!!

“A little Spot of Heaven to relax IN is waiting for you !”

We visit Key West regularly and have stayed in most of the best spots in Florida. Hotels, Condo's, private Homes, Boats, it's just a matter of what you are in the mood for. This is the perfect relaxing place to bring your kids or not, the groceries and plant your self on the beach, by the pool. Very clean Old Florida accommodations with the perfect view. Not over done, just perfect and a home feel where you don't feel like you have to fuss with much. The little private beach area is worth it's weight in gold...The pool and grill is there if you need it..close enough to the mall just in case, but don't bother you won't be going anywhere. Staff is great, efficient, we love the entire experience.

“Relaxing in paradise”
Reviewed June 1, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

The rooms in the mermaid are a little small and the smoke detector kept going off every time you made toast since next to stove, which was annoying for those sleeping in! Parking is tight, but we got used to how to pull in and out. Hard to see sing for cottages from the road. The pool was not heated., but the pool and lounge area was really nice and great area to sit and read, etc when the sun became too hot for the beach. The property is beautifully landscaped and the bungalows are cozy. Nice private beach for watching sunrise and sunset. Lots to do close by! My 3 adult children, with two DILs and granddaughter and mom vacationed together and we made great memories! They all said they had a great time and so did I. Reasonably priced!

Management Response
Jun 15, 2015
We appreciate the time this guest took to write this review.
We supply all guests with 2 phone numbers to call/text 24 hours/day if they have any problems. If we had been told about the smoke detector, we could have moved it or moved the toaster. Yes beach bungalows/cottages are not known for huge parking spaces but fortunately ours does not back up directly onto Gulf Blvd like so many other places. We have a nice 20 ft wide driveway to back up into then pull onto Gulf Blvd. Also there is free parking right across the street for guests with bigger vehicles.
Our pool is heated to 81-82 degrees for all guests comfort. It is a new heater installed JAN 2014 and has been working fine. Once again we greatly appreciate any feedback as we are always striving to do better!

We rented the Mermaid-Seahorse. (3 couples). It was the perfect set up for us as we all had our own bedroom, with queen size beds and 2 bathrooms. The kitchen was had everything we needed and more. Pool was great to cool off in and the beach was footsteps away! Perfect location and Liz was great to deal with. We can't wait to go back next year!
