Located between Seaside and Destin in beautiful Santa Rosa Beach, Happy Mermaid is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath cottage that is part of a small neighborhood of only 75 cottage style homes called Old Florida Village, on the north side of 30A.

The property has a nice covered front porch that leads into the main living area which has a 40' flat screen HD TV, DVD & sleeper sofa. Queen bedroom, 32' flat screen HD TV & private bath. Dining area seats 6. Kitchen has granite counter-tops, stainless appliances & small bar. Laundry room with stacked washer/dryer. There is bedroom with 2 twin beds & shared bath. Another queen bedroom with shared bath.

Covered back porch overlooks natural preserve with small lake.

Old Florida Village is just a short ten-minute drive to Silversands factory outlet mall as well as all the family and adult activities of Sandestin. Across the street is Goatfeathers, a great seafood restaurant, and other great restaurants, shopping boutiques, summer concerts, artist fairs and continuous entertainment options at gulf place which is just a short walk. The quaint villages of Grayton Beach, watercolor, and seaside are just 4-8 miles down the beach highway. Old Florida Village is ideally situated within a quarter mile of 2 public beach accesses with clean public facilities and plenty of parking.

We first heard about this area by reading an article in Coastal Living magazine in 2010. We didn’t get a chance to visit until June 2012. We immediately fell in love with the area, particularly the sugar white sand beaches, and decided we had to have our own place in the area. By the end of the summer of 2012 we fell in love and purchased “Happy Mermaid”. It is our pleasure to offer our cottage as 'home' to vacationing families. We take great pride in our property and we are pleased when our guests have a wonderful experience staying in our home.

Dino DeNicola purchased this cottage in 2012

We selected 'Old Florida Village' because of its wonderful location and appeal to families! It is close to everything but not commercial or congested like the more urban areas. Traffic on 30-A is slow and easy! We hope it stays that way for a very long time.

As we mentioned earlier we take great care in our cottage and keep it impeccably maintained. It is wonderfully appointed and tastefully decorated. The cottage is immediately across the street from one of the two neighborhood pools. The best part is the cottage is within walking distance to two public beach accesses so you don’t have to worry about finding parking on those busy beach days.

HAPPY. MERMAID

  • 5 of 5
We were delighted with our accommodations at Happy Mermaid. The property was extremely clean and well maintained and the pictures did not do the home justice. The owner responded to all questions within less than 24 hours. We hope to rent again. . .just waiting for dates of next years family reunion on 30-A!

DELIGHTFUL!

  • 5 of 5
We had a delightful time during our stay at the Happy Mermaid! Lovely, like-new cottage with ample space for six (two adults and four kids). Can't beat the view of the nature preserve off the peaceful back deck. We made good use of the kitchen and grill. Recommend purchasing your seafood from Goatfeathers Seafood Market, but if you want to dine out, try Stinky's, Red Bar, or The Great Southern, all a short distance away. We loved having the pool right across the street from the house. Though small, it was never crowded and we either had it to ourselves or shared it with less than a half dozen others. Quick drive or short walk to the beautiful beach. Quiet community, which made for a relaxed and restful vacation.

FIRST TIME AT THE HAPPY MERMAID & NOT THE LAST!

First Time At The Happy Mermaid & Not The Last!
  • 5 of 5
This was our first true family vacation and we were pleasantly surprised with the Happy Mermaid and the Old Florida Village. With two children (7&3), the size of the house was perfect. The spaciousness, colors and decor really made the house feel like home. The beds and furniture was comfortable, wifi, enough TVs to accommodate everyone at night, and every utensil and appliance you need. The parking was no problem, the neighbors were all friendly and the pool across the street was an added bonus.

The house location was perfect for us too. Riding bikes to the beach was a fun daily adventure. We rent bikes from Big Daddy's who delivered and pick up the bikes at a reasonable cost...so convenient.

The owners of the Happy Mermaid could not have been more accommodating. They quickly answered all my questions before and during our trip. We're making plans to return and will most definitely recommend the Happy Mermaid to family and friends. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

GREAT RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay. The pictures online really don't capture the size of the house. When you walk in you will be shocked at the space. Our party included 5 adults and one child and we were all comfortable with the space and sleeping accomodations. The house was clean and the kitchen was well equipped. The walk to the beach is not bad if you are just going with a few items but if you want to take chairs, coolers or a great deal of equipment for fishing etc you will want to drive, but there is ample parking at the beach access just down from the village. The home is convenient to several restaurants and a short trip out to Hwy 98 to reach Wal-Mart and Publix. The pool is literally steps away and though it was a bit too cold for much swimming we enjoyed sitting with our toes in the water and then soaking up the sun from the lounge chairs. All of the patio furniture at the pool was in good condition which is not always the case with these rentals. We come to Santa Rosa every year at this time and I believe we may have found a rental to stick with this time!

PERFECT MOTHER/DAUGHTER GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was just perfect. From the cheerful way in which it's decorated, to the spacious floor plan, this place creates a peaceful and relaxing retreat. The well appointed kitchen makes it possible to eat in every meal. But, if you don't feel like cooking, there are plenty of food options very near by. The entire cottage was so clean it looks brand new. The only complaint we might have had is that the Wi-Fi can be unpredictable. Since my sister wasn't supposed to be working anyway, that was a minor problem. We highly recommend the Happy Mermaid and hope to make staying there an annual event.
