About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

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.

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.

Perfect little house for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

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:)

We used the porch daily! People very friendly!

  • 5 of 5

The living area and front bedroom are great! Back two bedrooms a little snug. Back yard good for walking our dog in the morning and evening. Great pool across the street! Close to everything. Its 1/3 of a mile to beach access road/bike path but another 2/10 to the actual beach entrance. We would definitely come back!
