  • Snowbirds at the Mermaid House

    "After a long two days of traveling from Wisconsin, we arrived safely at the Mermaid House to find it just what we expected. It was clean as a button and had everything we needed to call it home for the next 2 months. Angela was readily available for any questions or issues we encountered. We had to leave for a death in the family and when we returned all was again in order and we even had a different stove. The weather was not warm but surely warmer than what Wisconsin was experiencing in January and February. We did not have to shovel anything and we could enjoy our daily walks absent of winter coats. Our buddy Wilbur could go potty without digging in the snow! He loved to kick at the grass he remembered from summers past. Our neighborhood was quiet and safe and we could enjoy walks around the block or to the ocean. My only complaint: We are great dog owners and we were always out with a bag to pick up the waste. Each morning we were surprised by a gift from someone else's dog! Right there in the front yard. What will Angela do when we are no longer able to pick up the waste? It is not Willie. Also, dog owners from our community leave their dogs waste bags along Sandy Cay and we would have to gather them when returning from the beach. It surely does not show the neighborhood off well. We always say: One bad apple can ruin the basket. We are returning to stay in a home managed by Angela. Thanks VRBO for the ability to find what we needed."

  • Great family reunion

    "My husband, six adult children, and grandchild had a wonderful time at this beautiful home. Everything we could have possibly wanted including baby items such as a bathtub and pack and play were included in the house. This is a really great location and nice walk to the private beach. We didn't go to the public beach. We cooked every meal in the gorgeous, fully equipped kitchen. We would highly recommend this vacation home to other people looking for a relaxing beach trip."

  • Awesome vacation home

    "I have stayed in several beach homes and this one was the best by far. We had an excellent time. Loved the pool and the golf cart. It is a little further from the beach than I would have liked, but the golf cart made it so convenient. Loved the floorplan of the home and all the amenities. I cried when we had to leave. We will definitely come back to this awesome home. Wonderful wonderful wonderful"

  • summer vacation

    "I am just returning from my week stay at the sandcastle, overall my stay was good,the home was just what you need for vacation, the pool was very nice to have, the bedrooms/beds are small you will want to rent the golf cart as the walk to the beach is a little further than I expected. Angela (property manager) was great greeted us upon arrival and answered all questions"
