Another amazing vacation on AMI at the Merry Mermaid

  • 5 of 5

Here we are on our way back to snowy New Hampshire after a wonderful two weeks at Sharon's. This was our second year at The Merry Mermaid. We will be back next year for three weeks. Everything is just as great as we reported after last year's visit. If you are looking for a small but adequate accommodation 30 seconds away from the Gulf of Mexico, where you can park your car and forget about it, this is the place for you. Anna Maria Island is a great winter get - away for you New Englanders. See you next year Sharon and Bruce.....

P.S.....We would like to order the same weather we had this year......

Fabulous cottage on the gulf!

This was our first experience on Anna Maria Island and we hope, hope to come back many more times. Bruce and Sharon went out of their way to provide anything we needed. The fridge was stocked with beverages, there was a basket of snacks, beach chairs, and a grill on the lovely patio. The location couldn't be better. We could walk across the street to the beach and in the evening, we could walk to wonderful restaurants and shops. We took in several Pittsburgh Pirate games, which was an easy drive. Bruce also included several suggestions for restaurants complete with a map. It was very helpful. We loved it! Joyce and Ron Hoellein

The Merry Mermaid was just what we needed. Just right for the two of us. Really not room for any more than that. Sharon & Bruce were great hosts. Everything was very clean, comfortable and cutely decorated. It was very close to the beach, walking distance to restaurants, shopping & nightlife. The free trolley took us about midway up AMI to places too far to walk. Motorists were gracious when crossing the street in spite of the heavy traffic in March. Traffic was really not a problem. We want to book it again for next spring.

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

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!!!
