Just what I needed

  • 5 of 5
I found this wonderful place thru a friend. What a great find!! It was so quiet and relaxing all the while being just a few steps to the beach and walking distance to restaurants / shops. Not to mention being a few steps to the Trolley Stop that takes you all over the island. This getaway in very clean, well equipped and nicely decorated. You have a parking space right in front of the unit on a quiet street. I'm already planning my return trip. thanks Sharon for your great hospitality

I pulled in late.. And was greeted by an absolutely quaint patio with lights... Walked inside and wanted to move in.. Or somehow incorporate this super cute getaway into my home!! Perfect location.. Walked to Bridge Street for dinner before sunset.. Sharon is amazing... Bruce made it all happen.. Can't wait to go back.. Will be recommending to everyone!

Just Paradise...

It would be so very easy for me to repeat all the wonderful comments in other reviews left for the Merry Mermaid because they all are true & completely accurate. But I will try to add some 'new' glowing compliments to the mix :) Sharon & Bruce immediately feel like friends you have had for years when they personally greet you & the next thing you know, you're laughing so hard at their witty banter that you have to sit down to catch your breath! They have thought of everything to make your visit fun, relaxing and literally stress free. Yummies of all kinds are in the wonderfully decorated kitchen to get you by until you decide to venture out to a nearby grocery, including a vast selection of delicious wines that visitors can enjoy & then replace. The Mermaid is spotlessly clean & decorated in soft blues, greens & khaki colors...very easy on the eyes and senses. The bathroom is ready for guests, just like the kitchen, with soaps, shampoos, towels, everything you'd need and more. Outside is your own private sitting area with a gas grill, sparkling mini lights, flowers & plants. Just a few steps across the street is what every visitor has been longing for...the beach. Sharon & Bruce have made sure there are plenty of chairs, umbrellas, & coolers available for you to set up on the sand, then kick back & enjoy the sights & sounds of the wonderful Gulf waves. I didn't want to leave and I bet you won't either. Enjoy!!!

The Merry Mermaid exceeded our expectations. Location on the Gulf could not be better. Sharon and Bruce both ensured our experience was personal and tailored to our needs. Upon arrival, amenties were already in place, no need to rush out and buy supplies. Throughout our stay, our hosts checked in to "make sure" everything we needed was provided. Private parking, patio and gas BBQ made us feel as though we lived on the Island, not just tourists! Great place to home base, or enjoy beach life everyday.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words. Sharon and I understand that a vacation is getting away from it all and being able to relax. We have supplies ready upon arrival so you can sit down and enjoy yourself before running out to the store. We just want to make your vacation as special as possible and we believe the "little things" that we do, do just that!

A Lovely Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Merry Mermaid for 2 weeks. The hospitality was great and every little need we had was taken care of immediately. The living space is lovely and the outdoor patio is thoughtfully done. It is a great location with the beach across the street and the Bay at the other end of the block. We enjoyed being within walking distance of Bridge street for restaurants, entertainment and shopping. Thanks for your wonderful care on our getaway from winter!

The Magnificent Merry Mermaid

  • 5 of 5
It has been said that "if it seems to good to be true..........." you know the rest, well the Merry Maid on Anna Maria Island is clearly an exception to that rule. Upon our arrival, my wife and I were greeted by Sharon, as pleasant and upbeat a person as you could possibly ever know. The unit was more than adequate in size for the two of us. Once inside we were impressed with the charming decor and cleanliness. The kitchen area was stocked with fresh pastries for our first days breakfast, a basket with "munchies", fresh bottles of water in the refrigerator, wine, condiments, spices and all the necessary appliances for meal preparation. A full and stocked bathroom, a dining area, a seating area with a flat-screen television and two rocking/reclining chairs and a more than comfortable bed. The unit is also equipped with central AC and a ceiling fan for the warm days and nights you are hoping for. Outside there is a fenced patio with a barbecue, lounge chairs, a table and chairs for outside dining and a fire pit. There is no need to bring beach towels, chairs, cooler or an umbrella. It is all there for your usage. Bruce, the rental agent, made it clear that if we had any needs, we needed only to make him aware. We had no additional needs because Bruce and Sharon had thought of everything in advance. Best of all, the Gulf of Mexico beach is a mere 100 yards away, while the bay is slightly more than that in the opposite direction. The white sand is complimented by the clear and turquoise blue water. In other words, everything is and was as represented in the VRBO web site. You will not be disappointed.

Say hi to Sharon and Bruce for us.
