The Magnificent Merry Mermaid
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.
