About Heather

Why We Chose Anna Maria

We fell in love with Anna Maria Island in 2007 while visiting on our two-year wedding anniversary. We loved the “old Florida” charm, the quaintness, the friendly people, the laid-back feel and the beautiful beaches. We also enjoyed seeing no high-rise hotels/condos, fast food chains and other things that make typical beach towns feel too “touristy.”

Heather purchased this villa in 2012

Why Heather chose Anna Maria

We spent Thanksgiving 2011 on the island with family and it was then we began our mission of finding a second home on AMI. One year later, we closed on our new island villa and returned for Thanksgiving at the “Mermaid’s Hideaway”.

What makes this villa unique

Guests of the Mermaid’s Hideaway have one complaint…they never want to leave. We too love sneaking away to paradise with our two daughters (ages 5 and 3), along with our dog Max. We plan to create many fond family memories here. Hopefully you will as well!

We have had fun decorating the villa and putting our own personal touches on making it not only comfortable and relaxing, but a place that our guests can call “home away from home.”

We know that you won’t be disappointed. Thank you for your interest in Mermaid’s Hideaway.

Awesome pool deck and very close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

The pool deck was beautiful and the beach was very close. The inside was decorated in cool beachy colors. WiFi was very fast. On the whole, it was a great place to stay for the main reasons we came to Anna Maria.

I didn't give it 5 stars for a few reasons:

1) Many of the vertical blinds going out to the pool deck window were missing or crinkled.

2) The bath towels were damp when we arrived. My wife said the dryer was not very good.

3) I think they could be more forthcoming that you share a wall with your neighbor. While you have a private pool deck, this is a duplex. Perhaps in standard vacation rental lingo "villa" means duplex, but it caught us by surprise when we arrived. I do not think it's apparent solely by the pictures available online.

Paradise Found Indeed!

  • 5 of 5

I almost don't want to share my review as I know this will be a hard rental to reserve in the future as it is absolutely AMAZING! The owners have carefully considered everything one would need while on vacation. The property itself is stunning. Clean, bright, spacious and comfortable. The backyard boasts a beautiful pool surrounded by lush landscaping. You are a very short 1 minute stroll to the beach. An absolute gem!

A Delightful Property

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a trip to the Mermaid's Hideaway. A delightful property. Well maintained and equipped! The pool area was very relaxing. These folks have thought of almost everything to meet your needs. The housekeeping crew does a fantastic job! My only thought would be to have two bikes for guest use. We rented bikes this time and it was 75.00 for two bikes for a week. In previous years we actually went over to Goodwill and bought two bikes for $30.00. Goodwill is a great little find. We have been coming to Anna Maria for over eight years and love it there. Our one discovery this time was Mermaid's Restaurant. The best food and dining experience of our whole week! Absolutely delicious. For the first time I saw schools of stingrays and they were actually flying out of the water very high! You will love this sweet vacation spot. I spoke with the owner and what a delightful, sweet person she is. Georgie, Innkeeper of the Olde Square Inn Mount Joy PA

GREAT GETAWAY FOR THE MID-WINTER BLAHS

  • 5 of 5

After the December holidays, the bleakness and cold of January and February are real downers. Our escape to the Sunshine State and to this particular cottage were just what the doctor ordered.We had a terrific week at the Mermaid Hideaway.Modern touches such as granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen did not diminish the charm of this "old Florida" setting, only a block from the beach. The heated pool surrounded by lovely Florida plantings added to our enjoyment, while the nicely appointed furnishings and interior decor provided a sense of being at home.The mid-island location is really convenient and offers easy access to dining and shopping whether walking,driving or using the free municipal trolley that runs right by the front door. We'll definitely be back which is about the highest recommendation you can give a vacation rental property!!!

"A Totally Magical Experience"

  • 5 of 5

Mermaids Hideaway is appropriately named! The mermaids scattered magic all around this vacation destination. When we saw the oasis of palm trees surrounding the heated pool we made the decision then, to forget all of the many activities that Anna Maria Island had to offer. We had everything we wanted at the villa...a fully equipped kitchen with all of the amenities of home, tastefully decorated spaces including luxurious beds, beautiful bath rooms, laundry area, flat-screen tv, wifi and much, much more...add in the Mermaids' picturesque sunsets and walks on the beach...you could NEVER ask for more! We will definitely go back!

Mermaid Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We would recommend this rental to anybody. Nice and roomy, well kept up and very clean. Only a block from the beach, which is awesome.

The pool deck has a outdoor shower where you can rinse off after coming out.

We loved it.

Notes:
Pool heaters in private homes are locked for your safety and controls must not be tampered with as they are monitored by the pool company. 85° is the highest heat temperature setting. Pool temperatures will probably stay around 76° during the winter months. Please note if cold days occur, water temperatures will drop and may stay cooler longer. Pool heaters will not operate and will automatically shut down if outside temperatures get too cold. While we take every precaution to ensure that pools are heated as specified, weather conditions may affect the temperature of the pool. Outdoor spas are not hot tubs. The temperature of a spa is typically set at the same temperature as the pool. In the event of pool equipment malfunction during your stay, Duncan Real Estate will expedite repairs as quickly as possible. It may be necessary to close swimming pools for maintenance purposes. No refund or rent adjustment will be made for circumstances beyond our control.
