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.
