Mermaid House Exceeds Expectations

  • 5 of 5

From the outset, renting Mermaid House was a delightful transaction. Communication with the owners and the housekeeper was clear, enjoyable, and extremely helpful. The house is very generously equipped (high kudos for the kitchen) and furnished, going above and beyond what their website may include. For example: original art, telescope, current DVD's, intriguing books, floaties that stay inflated, enough plates, glasses, and silverware to entertain half the island. The property is very clean and well maintained. The floor plan affords a lot of privacy between bedrooms, with all of them opening onto a gorgeous wrap-around deck. There is ample seating for lounging, dining and sunning. (I'm always perplexed by rentals that offer more bed space than chairs! Not this one!) I noticed a crib and a toddler bed in the house. The view is gorgeous and the beach is great for swimming and walking (particularly at low tide). Within 15-20 minutes of the house is another beach (Cocoplum) with lazy wave action and depths allowing one to wade, seemingly, for miles. Renting a boat and visiting nearby cays is highly recommended and easy for even novice boaters. Food selection is a bit limited on the island, so you may want to bring some favorite items from home. Restaurant menu offerings are similar to one another and somewhat limited--a concession to make for a beautiful, unspoiled, moderately developed local. (We tried to eat at locally-owned establishments so this comment reflects no experience with the restaurant offerings at the Four Seasons.) The owners and housekeeper are determined to assist in making your stay delightful, and the people of Exuma are welcoming, friendly, and helpful. At your request, a bottle of rum will be waiting on the counter and a package of lobster tails in the refrigerator. We hope to visit again!

A wonderful holiday in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our multi generation family has recently returned from holidaying in beautiful Exuma. We have rented world wide and staying at Mermaid House was one of our best experiences. The pictures do not do it justice..The house is situated on the best part of Tar Bay. Fabulous white sand with not a stone to be found on the ocean floor. Gorgeous sunrises from the deck (or your bed if you have one of the two front bedrooms. )Kitchen has enough cutlery/dishes/glasses for the entire island. There is Apple Tv, DVD's and Wii to play. (our 5 yr old grandson had to bowl every night before dinner!). The Annex is newer and is clean and bright (altho no ocean views). The top deck provides gorgeous views (at this time of yr best at sunset as too hot during the day!). The teak outside furniture is plentiful on the deck and there are loungers and beach chairs for the beach. Tons of beach toys for kids (as well kiddie bed/high chairs/pottie if needed). A highlight for our family was the outdoor shower. Never used the indoor! Jeniece is there to help with any needs and local stores have more than enough supplies. We enjoyed Prime Island Meats which is 4 mins down the road and will take Credit card with no surcharge.

But it is the water...that glorious blue water and the miles of beach to walk which is the main draw. Go to Exuma and enjoy Mermaid House. You won't be disappointed

Owner's Response: THANK YOU very much for taking your time to write this review. We appreciate this very much. We are also happy to learn, that you and your family have had a wonderful vacation in beautiful Exuma and that you have enjoyed our little "corner of Paradise". We also appreciate that you mention all the amenities, we have furnished the house with. We have tried to think of what to do to make our guests stay as comfortable as possible. And therefore also we have bought the two seakayaks and the two paddleboards for free disposal for our guests. We have really many returners to the Mermaid House, and we certainly hope, we also can welcome you back one day. Again, thank you very much for your time and thoughtful comments. Warm greetings from Denmark.

Mermaid House

We stayed at the Mermaid House for two weeks. We couldn't have had a more beautiful place to stay. There were 9 adults and 3 children. Jeneice was fantastic. Everything we expected and more. I would recommend it in a heartbeat.

Just as beautiful as it looks

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mermaid House this past April. The house is absolutely beautiful and very comfortable. We could not believe the attention to detail. It is obvious that the owners have put great thought into all of the amenities (and believe me, there are MANY) that would make for a wonderful stay. They were also very friendly and made the rental process easy.

The house really is on the perfect part of Tar Bay!! The beach is fantastic and has powdery sand. The color of the water was almost shocking every time I turned around and looked out through the many sliders.

We loved the Mermaid House and can't wait until we are able to return. It really is a little piece of heaven here on earth!

Mermaid House Exuma Review

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a quite place to spend our 20th wedding anniversary, we have been all over the Caribbean, Mexico and Belize so we were not sure where to go until I came upon the Mermaid House located on Exuma. As I sure you will agree the house and island is great, we enjoyed the daily happy hour at the house as well as many of the fine places to eat and hang out (Augusta Bay, Chat and Chill and Catch a Fire). we also had a few good offsite activities as well we enjoyed diving the blue hole with Dive Exuma, we also had a full day with Captain Greg, got to feed the iguanas, see the swimming pigs and walk along and explore several bueatful beaches and Sand bars. I highly recommend having Jeniece whip up dinner one night we had her do it for us Lobster, Rice Bean, Slaw Salad and Mahi Mahi all were outstanding, she is also a handy crafts person as well, we were able to do bit of shopping here in the house for the folks back home.

Absolute privacy peace and quite, great people, great weather.

All in all a great trip, the owners were a pleasure to deal with as well.we plan to return.

Owner's Response: Dear Ken and Ann. Thank you so much for your very kind review. Anders and I are pleased to hear that you have had a lovely vacation in Paradise. It is interesting to learn about your favorite places. Yes, Jeneice is wonderful and as you probably have read in our guestbooks, you are not the only guests, who have had a great dinner prepared by Jeneice. She is good at cooking, has a great knowledge about her island and she is very helpful, so if the guests want her to do some shopping before arrival, maybe get some fresh fish, she will love to arrange it. We always ask her to arrange for a lobster, we can prepare the first evening and say "welcome home" to each other. - And as you mention the people in Exuma are very nice - and the nature - the water around Exuma - is outstanding - and breathtaking! Thank you again for taking your time to do this review, we really appreciate it, and we will be looking forward to welcome you back one day to the Mermaid House - to a little corner of Paradise. All the best Anders & Anne-Grete Hvass www.mermaidhouse.info

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been staying in Mermaid House on Great Exuma for the past 7 years. It is without a doubt the most beautiful spot in the Caribbean that we have been to. The house is wonderfully furnished, very comfortable and you have an awesome beach just steps from the door. Our kids have also been several times and loved the boating, fishing and snorkeling that the island has to offer. We have met some really nice people on the island. Everyone is very helpful. We rent a boat from Minn's every year and spend most of our time touring the harbor, swimming, snorkeling and fishing. There are so many little islands to explore out on the water. You can't go wrong renting Mermaid House and staying on the beach or getting out and exploring.
