About Dino DeNicola
We first heard about this area by reading an article in Coastal Living magazine in 2010. We didn’t get a chance to visit until June 2012. We immediately fell in love with the area, particularly the sugar white sand beaches, and decided we had to have our own place in the area. By the end of the summer of 2012 we fell in love and purchased “Happy Mermaid”. It is our pleasure to offer our cottage as 'home' to vacationing families. We take great pride in our property and we are pleased when our guests have a wonderful experience staying in our home.
Dino DeNicola purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Dino DeNicola chose Santa Rosa Beach
We selected 'Old Florida Village' because of its wonderful location and appeal to families! It is close to everything but not commercial or congested like the more urban areas. Traffic on 30-A is slow and easy! We hope it stays that way for a very long time.
What makes this Cottage unique
As we mentioned earlier we take great care in our cottage and keep it impeccably maintained. It is wonderfully appointed and tastefully decorated. The cottage is immediately across the street from one of the two neighborhood pools. The best part is the cottage is within walking distance to two public beach accesses so you don’t have to worry about finding parking on those busy beach days.

House met our needs but kitchen utensils need to be updated and 2 frying pans under the sink still had grease in them when we went to cook. Priced a little high especially with a 10am checkout.
WE LOVED IT. COTTAGE IS CUTE AND QUAINT.!!!!!!!
ENJOYED EVERY MINUTE
A Bright and Cheerful Home
The interior is brightly decorated and quite a beachy feel. The kitchen was well equipped and the appliances were is good working order. The house is located across the street from the pool and we enjoyed a couple of "meet and greet" cocktail parties around the pool for the residents and all the snowbirds. The large pine trees around the house kept us aware of the cones dropping on the metal roof and the pollen that fell during February.
The neighborhood is very inviting and we really like meeting so many great people and their dogs as we walked around with our dog. We were happy there and would return for another winter get away and golf season in Florida.
Perfect little house for a family vacation!
This is our second time at the Happy Mermaid, and we enjoyed it just as much. We cooked in the kitchen several times, and it was adequately prepped for cooking. We also enjoyed walking to ice cream and restaurants. Dino provides great customer service, and had someone come out the same day when one of the sinks clogged!
Very Nice Place to Stay
We truly enjoyed the stay; very comfortable and good location for access to pools. beach, other small beach communities, and grocery stores, as well as to Destin. We would stay again.
Perfect family vacation
This is our second year to stay at the Happy Mermaid and we absolutely love it! The community is great and the home is very close to the beach and across the street from the pool. We also enjoyed biking down 30A for a nearby dinner/shopping. I can't recommend the Happy Mermaid enough:)
