Fantastic beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mermaid's cove (6 adults, 3 children) in early May 2015 and had an absolute great time. Laura did a great job providing customized recommendations on what to do, where to eat, how to navigate the island and much more. The house is super clean inside and the pool was fantastic. Laura made sure that there was a child booster seat and pack-and-play crib for our 8 month old and my 3 and 5 year old girls loved the pink room with the toys in the closet.

The neighbors house/duplex was occupied for about half our trip by the owner and his sons, and they were very friendly and inviting as well. The house was an easy 2 block walk to the beach and there was a wagon/cart to help lug chairs, umbrellas, etc back and forth. The house came with plenty of beach toys, 2 beach umbrellas, about 6-7 chairs and some odds and ends (floaties, frisbees, etc) that was really nice.

Also, in the kitchen, there were leftover spices, condiments, some coffee filters and many of the things that are annoying to have to buy on vacation only to use them 2-3 times and throw out, so whether that was the previous travelers or Laura that provided them, it was really nice.

There's also plenty of board games, a Nintendo Gamecube with 8-10 sports games, and some DVD movies to watch. My girls watched Anastasia about 10 times during the trip.

Lastly, on e of the nicest things is that there is an electronic keypad on the door, so you dont need to mess with picking up and dropping off keys at an agency or a lockbox or anything. You show up and get in and leave when you check out. Laura sends the code a week ahead of time and it worked out great. I cant imaging why more owners dont have this installed. Nice job!

Overall it was fantastic and next time we come to Anna Maria Island, we'll be back in touch with Laura to rent again.

excellent trip

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at mermaid's cove and we absolutely loved it. There were 5 adults and 2 children and we had plenty of room. The home was cozy and comfortable, the pool was fantastic and we loved how close we were to the city pier. We travelled the whole Island on the trolley and we found our neighbourhood to be a fantastic family friendly and quiet neighbourhood, yet it was a short trolley ride to other areas. We rode the trolley every day to City Pier. We just loved it ther. Every day we saw dolphins, manatee and Rays right off the city pier dock, they were so close and at times the manatee swam by right as we were in the water. The beach was a short walk from the home and it was a more private Beach with less people than the public Beaches.

Laura was very helpful and easy to reach.

We definitely enjoyed our stay and hope to return again.

Great house, great value

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our group (5 adults and 3 children, ages 5-10). Lots of space for great family time, but also private as there is a nice layout of four bedrooms and two bathrooms. So much to do and see on the island and the general area - it really is the best of both worlds, having such nice, quiet beaches steps away, but also being 45-60 min from so many larger attractions (ie. we went to Busch Gardens and the Clearwater aquarium for a couple day trips - also, I took my nephew to a Lightning hockey playoff game). The house itself has so many fun things for the kids as well - basketball net, toys, Nintendo game cube with many video games, pool, pool toys, beach toys, etc, etc, etc!

Our only real issue was the Wifi which was unreliable at times.

The bottom line is that I would definitely recommend this house for larger groups as a nice, spacious, affordable home such as this is difficult to find on AMI. The owner is fantastic as well, which is always nice!

Great Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on AMI. The weather was fantastic, the beach was beautiful, and our accommodations were great! We rented Mermaids Cove with another family and we had plenty of room to sleep and sit around the table to eat meals together! The basketball hoop and large swimming pool were perfect for our teenage kids and their friends! Laura shared a lot of helpful information with us prior to our visit (restaurants, bike rental, shopping, etc...), it was excellent! The short walk to the beach was easy with the beach wagon, cooler, beach/pool toys, towels and a lot of beach chairs. We hope to return for another relaxing spring break vacation in the future!

A vacation you won't forget

  • 5 of 5

Honnestly, other reviewers sum it up. You can't beat the value of this house on an exceptionnal island. I may want to stress on the greatness of the pool: BIG and WARM! Perfect for the kids who swam on everyday, rain or shine!

Pour les québécois qui fréquentent peu cette région, Anna Maria Island est une région de la Floride à découvrir absolument. Un rythme de vie et une atmosphère complètement différents de la côte est. C'est les Caraïbes aux États-Unis!

Fantastic Island Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family spent Thanksgiving Week at Mermaids Cove and we can't wait to go back! The house was perfect for us. Six adults and four kids slept very comfortably and played our vacation week away on beautiful AMI. We loved exploring the island and the Sarasota area, and even spent one day in Orlando at the Magic Kingdom. My favorite part of the week was our visit to the Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium. If you get the chance to visit the island or Sarasota, don't miss it. Laura is 100% committed to exceptional guest service and as someone who travels frequently, i'm not easily impressed. Big thanks to her for helping make our vacation/family reunion so special!
