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. A community pool directly across a private drive makes keeping tabs on those loved ones especially convenient and beach access is a short stroll (approximately 550 yards or .3 mile).

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.

About Dino DeNicola

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

Why Dino DeNicola chose Dune Allen Beach

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Great beach house!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house! This was our first time to stay on 30A. We usually stay on Okaloosa Island or in Sandestin. The location was perfect. There are two public beach entrances very close by. We would usually drive to one and unpack beach gear since we had kids. You could definitely walk, but would be difficult with lots of chairs, boogie boards, floats, toys, etc.

We loved the restaurants in this area. Some of our favorites included Stinky's Fish Camp, The Red Bar, Chanticleer, The Donut Hole, McGuire's Irish Pub. It was not to far to drive into Destin.

The house is decorated very beachy. I loved EVERYTHING about the house. My kids enjoyed riding around the neighborhood on their bikes. The pool was right out the front door which made it easy to get to/from. Parking the car right at the front door was a delight! I just left and am ready to go back.

The Internet did not work all the time at this house. That is the only issue we had with the house.

You will not be disappointed if your choose this for your beach vacation!!

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.
