              Year Purchased: 2013

              About: Doug and I are empty nesters with the exception of our two Bichon Frise's, Bailey and Cali. We're beach bums first and foremost and we love to play golf, snow ski and travel.

              Why Indialantic:
              From the moment I turned onto this street I felt that I stepped back in time-that I had come full circle to a place I love. The 'Old Florida' ambiance was very reminiscent of the Florida Keyes back in the sixties, a childhood playground for Doug and I. It was a favorite place then and is now (a favorite hideout). Having a passion for travel and always looking for just the right place to stay combined with our background in real estate sales we stumbled upon this quaint neighborhood while 'taking a ride.' And there she was...a diamond in the rough, waiting... Currently, 'The Mermaid House' is enjoyed by those who are seeking the perfect oasis for a relaxing vacation and we are thankful to provide the opportunity to be able to share it. A special thanks to our family and friends that made it possible to recapture 'The Mermaid Houses' original beauty and charm. We hope you enjoy your stay and will return again in the near future.

              The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
              Location, Location, Location! The Mermaid House is in close proximity to an enormous amounts of Sun, Fun and Culture. Within a 6 mile radius there is a plethora of shops, restaurants, spa's and markets to satisfy your needs. From the Mermaid House it is approximately a one hour drive to Orlando (Disney World), Sea World, Epcot, Millennia Mall and the Outlet Shopping District. Beaches: The best beach is right down the road however it is a 25 minute scenic drive along the Atlantic Ocean to the famous Cocoa Beach or continue on for an additional 10 minutes to Cape Canaveral and the cruise line port. There are two Historical downtown areas to visit: Melbourne Historical Downtown (go over Melbourne Causeway) has shopping, antiquing, a playhouse and many restaurants, Eau Gallie Historical District (go over Eau Gallie Causeway) has an art venue and restaurants; each is only a 5 minute drive. Golfing your cup of tea? Stay beach side: A 10 minute drive south to Spessard Holland Golf Course or across the Melbourne Causeway to Crane Creek Golf Course location on 192. or visit the Brevard Zoo in Viera, a short 15 minutes away. Enjoy!
