    Wonderful pet friendly home. We brought our two small dogs with us and there was no trace that dogs had ever stayed there before. Home is very close to the beach and just a short walk! Love that it’s close to everything too! Outlet Mall is just a short drive away 7-8 min. The bicycles were a hit for the kids to ride in the evenings too! Loved our stay and we will be back!

    Our family decided to rent this home last minute just a few weeks before. Not knowing that the weather “Tropical Storm Alberto” would be visiting the Destin, Florida area. We still ended up driving 14 hours to get to the Florida destination place from south Texas as we couldn’t get a refund or move dates. Upon arrival to the mermaid home it was a very cozy feeling. The house beach decor was awesome throughout the home. The kids loved the rooms and each restroom had there nice clean white towels. The kitchen is equipped with all the dishes, cookware and utensils you need to cook. Our family enjoyed the little time we had in the pool due to the rain but overall great. A couple of things that were a little disappointing were the roaches. There were roaches in both restrooms in the master bedroom and a couple we killed in the garage trying to make there way in. Everyday we killed 2 to 3. Also the second restroom toilet seat was broken. Overall my family had a good time and the home was a way better option that a hotel. We would rent this home again hopefully in the near future.

    The house has an exellent location withing walking distance to the beach. Well furnished with great amentities. Pool is excellent. We did encounter some minor issues that were quickly resolved by the rental agent. Rental agent was very very responsive. Several restaurants within walking distance. Beach service available to rent. Beach attendent was excellent.

    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!!!!
