Located between Seaside and Destin in beautiful Santa Rosa Beach, Happy Mermaid is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath cottage that is part of a small neighborhood of only 75 cottage style homes called Old Florida Village, on the north side of 30A. A community pool directly across a private drive makes keeping tabs on those loved ones especially convenient and beach access is a short stroll (approximately 550 yards or .3 mile).
The property has a nice covered front porch that leads into the main living area which has a 40' flat screen HD TV, DVD & sleeper sofa. Queen bedroom, 32' flat screen HD TV & private bath. Dining area seats 6. Kitchen has granite counter-tops, stainless appliances & small bar. Laundry room with stacked washer/dryer. There is bedroom with 2 twin beds & shared bath. Another queen bedroom with shared bath.
Covered back porch overlooks natural preserve with small lake.
Old Florida Village is just a short ten-minute drive to Silversands factory outlet mall as well as all the family and adult activities of Sandestin. Across the street is Goatfeathers, a great seafood restaurant, and other great restaurants, shopping boutiques, summer concerts, artist fairs and continuous entertainment options at gulf place which is just a short walk. The quaint villages of Grayton Beach, watercolor, and seaside are just 4-8 miles down the beach highway. Old Florida Village is ideally situated within a quarter mile of 2 public beach accesses with clean public facilities and plenty of parking.
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
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.
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.
Happy Mermaid is everything advertised and more! While the bedrooms are a bit small, the living area is quite comfortable, and the kitchen is well-appointed. We had family renting a large house on the beach side of 30A, and we were within walking distance of their place and the beach there. Dino is an attentive host, making sure everything was to our liking. I highly recommend the Happy Mermaid!
We stayed at the Happy Mermaid nov6-12 and it was wonderful. The weather heated up every afternoon to where we could hit the beach and do some snorkeling. Beach is a 5 minute walk away and 2 pools are just steps from Happy Mermaid. Such a perfect little beach house!!
We enjoyed our stay at the Happy Mermaid. The cottage is so cute! It is so clean and comfortable. We loved sitting and talking on the front porch. Old Florida Village is a wonderful family oriented, quite community which is close to the beach, restaurants, shopping and grocery store. We enjoyed Stinky's Fish Camp and Great Southern Cafe. We also enjoyed cooking in the cottage. The owners are very attentive and easy to work with. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to come back!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Happy mermaid & plan to come back next summer - hopefully twice. The area was beautiful, very quiet & well kept. My husband & I enjoyed walking through the Old Florida Village every morning & relaxing on the porch in the afternoons. Access to the beach was so easy & I loved having the clean restrooms right there.
This beach house was perfect for our little family. It had everything we needed, and was set in a beautiful community. The pool is right across the street, and the beach is in walking distance. Also, a few restaurants that we were able to walk to. Would definitely consider staying here again!
