  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at many properties over the years and some outside of Homeaway, this by far was the best. Pink Mermaid had everything we could have asked for. The single floor residence was a nice change from the NC and VA coast properties with many steps to haul luggage and groceries. The pool area was awesome, we saw dolphin on several occasions in the canal. My husband and daughter also spent time fishing there and caught snapper and catfish. Carol, the owner is very responsive to queries, not that we needed her much with such a great home. We thank Carol and her husband for sharing this gem with us, we'd love to come back soon!!!

A Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Carol's home is beautiful. It is spacious and comfortable and always feels just like home. We have stayed in Carol's home a total of 4 times with my family and each year gives us the most beautiful memories to take with us. Comfortable beds, a great kitchen, two cozy TV viewing areas, wonderful washer/dryer, and a fabulous pool right on the canal. I never want to leave!!

This home is clean and well maintained and working with Carol is a pleasure.

The beach is within walking distance and Carol has all kinds of beach equipment. I would highly recommend this home to any family looking for a true beach experience. The Pink Mermaid is PERFECT!!

Wonderful home

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at this home on a Saturday and was very impressed with everything. The pictures don't do it justice. We didn't need anything as far as cooking utinsils or cooking pans and such. The house was pretty clean and the pool was fantastic. We will definitely stay here again.

AMAZING Vacation Home!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a week's stay at the Pink Mermaid House and can't say enough wonderful things about the house.

We traveled as a family of 4 with two young children, along with grandma and grandpa and there was plenty of space for all of us. The home literally has everything you need and it's SUPER clean and comfortable. There are plenty of linens, beach towels, fully stocked kitchen with all sorts of spices, salts/peppers, cooking spray, syrup, condiments, dishwasher pucks, etc, (2) Hair Dryers, great washer and dryer, rollaway bed that we used for our 3 year old, beach wagon, (5) Beach bikes (with bike locks), coolers, beach toys, pool toys, a bucket of sunscreens and shampoo/conditioners, High chair (Although it's not super sturdy), tons of lounger chairs/couches/tables by pool, Fishing Poles, Gas grille and much more!

The home is in a wonderful quiet neighborhood on the South End of the island with a very short walk to the beach. We really enjoyed being on the South End of the island where there is less traffic and safer/quieter for our family. Although we never had to contact Carol (the homeowner) for anything while we were there, we experienced really quick responses prior to our trip from her. She was very helpful and friendly.

The home literally had everything we needed, with one exception, being a Pack-N-Play for our 1 year old and the only frustration we experienced was with the TV's. They were a little difficult to operate and didn't give us many channel options BUT who needs TV, when it's 85 and sunny out everyday!!

We highly recommend this home. You will not be disappointed, should you decide to rent it. We can't wait to come back next year!

Thanks Carol for a great week in Paradise! ;-)

Pink Mermaid is perfect for families or couples, hospitable, well equipped, conveniently located.

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with the Pink Mermaid house. The walk to the beach is short, safe, and had good access. The neighborhood is quiet, friendly and well maintained. The house and garage was well equipped; the beach wagon was perfect for our needs and the bicycles so handy. The pool area was lovely even with our rainy cool weather. The house was clean and well maintained. We appreciated the well -stocked linen cabinets, washer, dryer, and ample and generously equipped kitchen. The owner kept us well informed of storm damage prior to our arrival and repair was made in a timely manner. All communications with owner were quickly addressed. We would love to vacation again at the Pink Mermaid and would readily recommend the place to our friends.

So thankful we found this home

  • 5 of 5

It's very hard to express the gratitude we have for being able to stay in such a lovely, well cared for home over Christmas. There was not one detail left for us to have to take care of during our stay. Everything was well thought of for a family to stay without hassle or many trips to the store because we needed something that wasn't provided. Only thing would have loved more is a Christmas Tree...Tall order, I know!

The pictures and description just don't do it justice.

No regrets staying on the south side of the island away from Times Square. We will most certainly book in this area again (if their house is already taken) rather than more north. We found ourselves enjoying more the drive and dinning on the southern end and onto Bonita Springs.

Thank you again! You are so fortunate to own such a gem!
