About The Owner

Hi, I am a single mother of two girls. both of my girls lived on the beach and loved it so much when they grew up and moved away I decided to share my small part of paradise with the world . It's the most natural and clean beach in florida . I say natural cause you never know when you may be taking a walk on the beach at night and just about walk into a turtle laying her eggs . yes its on the web site ck it out on my other web site SEE THE TURTLES RIGHT ON THE BEACH !!

call me or email me and I will send you the pictures of the turtles on the beach . I make my home yours. My guests become like family . In 23 years of renting I can say I have never had anyone not happy with what they got for the money. My places are cleaned by me the owner. And if you need something I am here to get it . I am never more then a phone call away.Ok, I hope to see you on the Beach gotta go it's Sunset !!!

The Owner purchased this house in 1992

Why The Owner chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

MANASOTA BEACH & ENGLEWOOD BEACH is old FLORIDA. I know I am safe to walk the beach at anytime day or night . You can still have a firer pit on the beach except in turtle season MAY THROUGH OCT IS TURTLE SEASON COME SEE TURTLES ON THE BEACH LAY THEIR EGGS AND IN APPROX 67 DAYS THEY WILL HATCH . I can still take a sleeping bag down and sleep under the stars and no one is going to come run me off. The fishing is great ! I can walk to a charter fishing boats and be out fishing by 6-7 in the A.M. . FREE YOGA ON THE BEACH I can feel completely safe at night with my doors unlocked. So to me its my paradise .

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

I am a teacher, mother and runner. My in-laws had vacationed at the Mermaid House several times and raved about how beautiful and relaxing their time had been. When I was told I had a "fall break" last spring I immediately contacted my in-laws to schedule a much needed vacation in warm sunny FL. This place was PERFECT! My 6 year old daughter traveled with us. The water on the Gulf was warm and waves were small on most days, which is perfect for small children. My daughter and I spent hours looking for shells and shark teeth, swimming and relaxing on the beach. There is a small state park not to far from the property which I ran to several times. We went jet skiing and paddle boarding and we walked into town for dinner. The sunsets here are AMAZING! My daughter keeps asking me when we can go back. The best part was that we only needed to pack our clothes! Everything else we could have possibly needed was there for us. If you are in need of a quiet peaceful retreat I highly recommended the Mermaid House. You will not be disappointed. :)

The last 3 years this has been the vacation spot of our choice. We pack our personal items in a suitcase and board the plain...Everything and I mean everything is at the Mermaid House that you need to enjoy your vacation. From the sunrise in the morning to the sunsets in the evening your only feet from the beautiful beach it is breath taking. My husband loves fishing while I love the quiet of beach. Thank you Darlene for another great vacation. xoxo

Wonderful Gulfview Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Mermaid house, Darlene was more than hospital! We were steps from the beach, had beach equipment provided, we had our meals on the balcony looking at the Gulf. The house was extremely clean, well stocked, lovely beds and linens. Darlene was informative on the local events and amenities on the island. We would absolutely stay here again!

Our New Vacation Spot-and pet friendly

  • 5 of 5

As native Floridians and former beachfront luxury condo owners it takes quite a lot to impress us. And impressed we were. This home was exactly as advertised. The location and the home were both wonderful but what made this vacation stand out was the customer service and communication provided by Darlene. Our outstanding customer service began 2 weeks prior to our arrival. The dreaded red tide was present on the beach. Darlene took it upon herself to call and advise us of the situation and gave us the opportunity to reschedule if we so chose to. As we were really looking forward to some beach time we agreed that we would take the 'wait and see' approach. Thankfully, that issue resolved itself and once again we were counting the days to get to the beach. The day before we were to depart we took a pretty big hit from hurricane Matthew. Oh boy, here we go again....what happened next was a true show of character-Darlene offered us the option to reschedule our trip! How sweet was that especially since it was weather related. In spite of the set back we did eventually make it to our new vacation spot. Had a wonderful time in a lovely home. Darlene, we really want to come back for Thanksgiving! Please try and make that happen. Hope we see you soon.

Blessings,

Bobby and Patricia

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely fabulous! From ample parking, outdoor spaces & shower, indoor dining & living - this property has it all! The kitchen(s) are fully stocked with everything needed for a family gathering or intimate dinner. The location of the property could not be more perfect. A few steps to the gulf of Mexico! Darlene could not be more accommodating! Meeting us with an umbrella at the car when we arrived because of a pop up shower, really! I need to mention the cleanliness of the unit(s) - you will not be disappointed. I am very particular about cleanliness and Darlene's property was impeccable. We will be planning another visit - sooner than later!

Great "Home" for our vacation

  • 5 of 5

Darlene was prompt with a response to my inquiry. Others did not even return calls or emails. She was great to work with and went out of her way to make our stay pleasant. The place had the feel of Key West with direct access to the beach. We had a great 4th of July and would recommend you stay if you have the chance. We had several friends and family over who all enjoyed their time there. You need bring nothing but your clothes and food! Thanks for the great service Darlene.
