We stayed at The Mermaids House for four nights including New Years Eve. The description of amenities is right on so I won't go into a lot of those items but we loved everything the house had to offer. If anything, the pictures do not do the house justice.

The location was almost exactly half way between the north and south end of Duval. Was very convenient although the walking back and forth 3 - 4 times a day got to be a little much. We never noticed any noise from Duval Street even though it was packed the entire time we were there.

We used the washer and dryer without any issues at all. Never used the soaking tub/shower because we loved the outdoor shower and used it exclusively. We got in early but Dave was very helpful and kept our luggage for us until the house was ready. Don't worry about soap, shampoo, lotion, etc. Absolutely everything is provided and seems to be higher end products as well.

Wi-Fi worked great and each bedroom has a tv. We found the bed to be very comfortable and the towels were much better than I would have expected. The back yard is fabulous and we spent late evenings and early mornings on the patio.

We could go on and on but we would only be duplicating what others have said. A big thank you to Barbara for making this available to all of us and the pride and care she obviously gives to the house.

“Charming house in the heart of everything.”
Reviewed January 17, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Mermaid House is charming, old Key West style charm, with a great backyard. It's near everything, just off Duval Street but quiet and peaceful. Kitchen has everything one could need, ditto bath, and the outdoor shower is pretty and private. Nice.

Liked best: The charm and convenience.
Liked least: The bathroom is at one end of the house and the bedroom at the other so if you get up at night it's a pain but it's a small house.

“Wonderful home!”
Reviewed November 19, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Great little house in a great location. Well stocked and comfortable with lots of charm. Backyard is a paradise--I could have spent the entire trip there and been happy. Convenient location. Never even got in the car during our visit. Didn't have to.

The Mermaids House in Key West is a rental that instantly makes you feel like a resident. The manager, Dave, was absolutely fantastic to deal with and check-in and check-out was quick and painless. The house itself is extremely well equipped and the beds are extremely comfortable. The backyard is private with a deck, hammock, and lounge chairs and is perfect for relaxing during the day or night. There are laundry facilities on site as well. The outdoor shower was an added bonus (there is also an indoor shower and tub). It is very centrally located in Old Town and it was a very quick walk or bike ride (bikes are provided, free of charge)to anywhere we wanted to go. No one in my family wanted to leave and my daughters kept taking pictures and videos because they "never want to forget The Mermaids House." We go to Key West a couple times a year and we like to experience new things and stay in different places but the Mermaids House will be a place that we would like to stay in again in the future. I can highly recommend this property!
