Blue Mermaid is a premier Island property with a Heated Pool and amazing Gulf Views that you will have to see to believe! Only one house from the brilliant white sand beach sits this immaculate abode with a view. Impeccably decorated with an eclectic mix of rustic coastal decor and perfect in every detail. The upper level patio, outfitted with an outdoor high-top dining table and pair of colorful Adirondack chairs, provides the sights and sounds of the Gulf of Mexico and its spectacular sunsets. The screened-in ground level patio boasts a collection of unique seating options and an HD flat screen TV for your viewing pleasure in the event you become all beached-out. The expansive back yard and stone pathway lead to a set of swinging saloon doors which open up to the beach access only steps beyond them. The kitchen is fully stocked so you will feel right at home when preparing your family's meals. Rinse off the day's sand in the completely enclosed, bamboo wrapped, hot and cold outdoor shower located on the back side of the house. This rare gem of a beach house sleeps up to 6!
This property is professionally managed by Anna Maria Island Accommodations, located on the sunny and beautiful Anna Maria Island.
This place was so charming, clean and a perfect location. Our kids enjoyed scavenger hunts with all the beautiful Floridian art work throughout the property. Not only can you walk to the beach but it is within walking distance to all the shops. Looking forward to another stay at the Blue Mermaid.
We spent a week here in December with family members: we were six including two children, ages 8 and 10. We liked the place and found it very comfortable. It was a 2-minute walk to a very beautiful Gulf beach, so the children could come as go as they liked. The house was well-equipped with modern and working appliances, dishes, and cooking equipment. The main living area is elevated (second floor), which meant we had very good light and ventilation. With the breezes we never needed the a/c. Only drawback was that many of the beach chairs were broken and needed to be replaced.
The management office was very responsive when we needed a few items.
The location was very convenient to restaurants (many within walking distance) and to some small shops. The nearest supermarket is about 10 minutes away by car.
There are two screened rooms on the first floor, but they are both quite dark and we never used them. In case of rain, they might be usable. We rarely used the pool in the yard.
Absolutely wonderful rental! Every detail is addressed. Kitchen is well equipped. House is spotless. Beautifully decorated. Nice view of the ocean. Only steps to beach. No complaints at all. We would definitely rent this property again. You do have to climb a full set of stairs to get inside the house which may be a consideration for people with disabilities
Walking distance to Historic Pine Avenue and all of it's great shops, eats, and treats.
