Surfing Mermaids is a wonderful beach house. The house is very comfortable, attractive, and well-equipped with a nice view of the beach from the balconies on both levels. The covered area underneath the house is a fantastic place to hang out complete with a enclosed shower and bar. We had a large group (13) and had plenty of space and beds. We hope to return again some day after our wonderful Thanksgiving holiday there!
I will (and already have) recommend this home to our friends. Surfing Mermaids Guest Home feels like home away from home. Everything you need is there. The home is new and well-equipped with modern appliances.
Christmas is a special time for our family. We enjoy being together in a home, enjoying each other's company and playing games. The Surfing Mermaid Home was outstanding. Since up to 14 adults and children can stay here, the accomodations were exclellent for our stay.
We normally go to the mountains for Christmas. This year's beach stay was one of our most memorable Christmas seasons. The weather was a wonderful: wet and cold (about 41 to 45 degrees), with a lower wind chill. We took warm clothes and even had a "polar plunge."
It was a great Christmas!
My husband and I had a great time staying in this beautiful and comfortable home. We loved dining outside on the deck and being walking distance to the beach. Will be returning very soon for another tranquil weekend.
We had an amazing week and have already booked for next year. The home is emaculate and the view of the Gulf is perfect. I love the dual master suites. Thank you for sharing this beautiful home!
Overall, this house was very nice!! In fact, it was the nicest house we have ever had at Crystal Beach. My husband's family has been going to Crystal Beach for over 40 years. This was our first trip without our grandmother, mother and father, as they have all passed away during the last 2 years. So, we decided to head to the beach to keep the family tradition going and to make them proud. Upon arrival, we were very impressed with the location and the house had the "wow factor" when we first walked in. We had a total of 14 people. The house fit our family's needs in the fact that each individual family had their own bedroom and bathroom. And, the bunk room (with a closest that turns into an awesome fort), was perfect for the kids. The whole layout was perfect. Having T.V.'s in the bedrooms was definitely a plus, though, I never watched mine. And, the W/D off of the kitchen was very convenient. The A/C was fabulous and kept us quite cool. I do have a few things I wanted to mention that are not so great. Not having Wi-Fi is not so good. The kids couldn't play some of their games, use Ipods, etc. And,
we had no phone service in this house anyway. All but one of us had AT&T. We had to go to the end of the driveway to get service. So this is something people need to be aware of before renting this house. The ice maker never worked. It was bone dry when we got there and never produced a single ice cube. The owner's initial response was that "its been fine". But, we noticed loose ice in the bottom of the freezer so we know the previous renters had purchased ice as well. Not that we expected the ice maker to produce ALL of the ice we would need but we did expect it to "make ice". The kitchen sink leaked all the way down unto the carport the second day we were there. We had to call the owners and a plumber arrived 2 1/2 hours later. Then, later in the week, the upstairs Queen master shower leaked into the kitchen. The plumbers came right away that time. Another 'bummer" was that I, personally, had to take two cold showers in the first floor "gorgeous" shower. I got up at 6:30 a.m. and let the water run for 10 minutes hoping hot water would appear, but no such luck!! The kitchen had hot water and so did the upstairs showers. Only 2 mornings did I have a hot shower. The website did say it had a gas grill and an outdoor refrigerator. These did not exist. Overall, we expected more from this luxury home.
