We had à wonderful time in Destin! The house
was great, well furnished and equipped. A nice
pool and very close to the wonderful beach.
Everyone should go!
The Delightful Mermaid Cottage was, in a word (or two) Absolutely Delightful! It was clean, and welcoming and comfortable, and in a great location just steps from the beach.
When we arrived at the Mermaid Cottage we were happy to see that it was just as described in the listing. It was clean, in good repair, and the kitchen was well stocked. There was plenty of room for the ten of us. We enjoyed how close we were to the beach and also spent a lot of time at the pool. We didn't have any issues during our stay and the owner was great to work with. We would definitely stay here again.
We had an incredibly amazing stay! Hands down the best beach house we've been to!! So clean, so nice, such an amazing location!!
Overall, you all do a FANTASTIC job, I will HIGHLY recommend your place, and we will be back in the future!!
Property was nice as previous years and Mike and Kathy do a GREAT job. Would recommend and have done so.
Loved our stay at the mermaid cottage. We loved having a 'home' for the week! Spacious, well laid out and cozy. My ONLY complaint during the stay was the home obviously didn't get deep cleaned very often... Our dog got under the master bed & wow, there was a plethora of trash under it.
Convient location, parking etc. loved private beach set up.
We loved our stay at The Mermaid Cottage! I've stayed at many homes over the past few years and this one was awesome! I loved that the AC unit was upstairs so it kept the house nice abd cool. It was clean and beautifully decorated! Well stocked with Tide for laundry and detergent for dishwasher. This was the first time staying at a house with a community pool and it was great. Nice and cool as opposed to very small bath water pools. Very nice vacation home!
