Delightful and an excellent find!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful stay! The cottage was well furnished, clean and a pleasure to stay in. We had a sense of privacy and a restful environment while being close to the beach and John's Pass. The pool area was perfect -- surrounded by palms and equipped with lounge chairs, tables, umbrellas and BBQ equipment. Extra amenities like outdoor shaded tables, bikes, and equipment for the beach were provided. Bedding, towels, TV's, kitchen and bath supplies were all top quality. Judy made everything easy. We loved this property and would definitely recommend it.

Truly Paradise

  • 5 of 5

These cottages were fabulous. We had all four cottages rented for the week. The pool area was so nice that is where we stayed the whole week.

We did not even go to the beach. It was also nice to be able to bring our dog.

Judy was a very gracious host, thank you for such a much needed vacation.

Great Beach Vacation!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We didn't stay in Flamingo, but the Mermaid. However we saw all cottages and all were set up for a perfect vacation stay. About the one we were in, Mermaid. Outside: Beautiful pool and pool area, we ate outside several times, great set up for grilling, small fenced in back yard with table and umbrella, great for a small dog and people too! Cruiser bikes provided, also large beach umbrella, beautiful beach a few blocks away, bike ride, walk drive. Great area to ride bikes. Inside cottage: beachy deco, most comfortable bed, plenty of room, kitchen with EVERYTHING one could want. Judy (owner) thought of and provided everything one could want or need for the perfect beach vacation! Thank you for sharing your beautiful property with us. We drove a verrrry long way, worth every mile!! We would recommend this property to anyone that would like the perfect beach vacation. Greg and Cathy

Wonderful 2nd time around

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mermaid for 2 weeks this April and enjoyed our stay just as much as last year.

When we pulled in the drive way to the cottages, it was just like "coming home". The cottage was just liked remembered and we settled in right away. The cottage was just as clean and well maintained as the year before. Beautiful and relaxing.

We met some new folks who were staying at the others cottages and got reacquainted with the others who were At the cottages from the previous year. It was "old home week".

We used the bikes everyday and walked to the resturants and beach everyday. Our favourite place was the Hut at Johns Pass for a drink and chillin to the live music. Check it out!

Judy and Drake truly are great hosts and we look forward to another two week stay in 2017.
