About Darlene Plank
Hi, I am a single mother of two girls. both of my girls lived on the beach and loved it so much when they grew up and moved away I decided to share my small part of paradise with the world . It's the most natural and clean beach in florida .

I make my home yours. My guests become like family . I can say I have never had anyone not happy with what they got for the money. My places are cleaned by me the owner. And if you need something I am here to get it . I am never more then a phone call away.Ok, I hope to see you on the Beach gotta go it's Sunset !!!
Darlene Plank purchased this House in 1992
Why Darlene Plank chose Englewood
MANASOTA BEACH & ENGLEWOOD BEACH is old FLORIDA. I know I am safe to walk the beach at anytime day or night . You can still have a firer pit on the beach except in turtle season MAY THROUGH OCT IS TURTLE SEASON COME SEE TURTLES ON THE BEACH LAY THEIR EGGS AND IN APPROX 67 DAYS THEY WILL HATCH . I can still take a sleeping bag down and sleep under the stars and no one is going to come run me off. The fishing is great ! I can walk to a charter fishing boats and be out fishing by 6-7 in the A.M. . FREE YOGA ON THE BEACH I can feel completely safe at night with my doors unlocked. So to me its my paradise . SLEEPS 1-5 BOOK NOW FOR THAT SUMMER OR WINTER VACATION OR FAMILY REUNION. WE PRICE BY THE SIZE OF YOUR PARTY AND THE TIME OF YEAR .
What makes this House unique
DEEDED TO BEACH & BAY WATCH THE SUN SET ON THE BEACH SIDE & WATCH IT COME UP ON THE BAY . WOW ALL THIS IS WITHEN 300 WALKING STEPS

Old Florida at its Best
We really enjoyed our stay, the house is comfortable, well stocked and just steps from the beach. We spent our days on the beach or at the nearby state park, swimming, paddle boarding, looking for shells and sharks teeth, and spotting wildlife. Darlene the property manager met us at the house, got us settled, and gave us great advice on local activities and restaurants. We could not have asked for a kinder or more helpful host. We will be back next year!
You will always be welcome back. I enjoy having your family

Wonderful Gulfview Accomodations
We had a great stay at the Mermaid house, Darlene was more than hospital! We were steps from the beach, had beach equipment provided, we had our meals on the balcony looking at the Gulf. The house was extremely clean, well stocked, lovely beds and linens. Darlene was informative on the local events and amenities on the island. We would absolutely stay here again!
Best Vacation Ever!
I am a teacher, mother and runner. My in-laws had vacationed at the Mermaid House several times and raved about how beautiful and relaxing their time had been. When I was told I had a "fall break" last spring I immediately contacted my in-laws to schedule a much needed vacation in warm sunny FL. This place was PERFECT! My 6 year old daughter traveled with us. The water on the Gulf was warm and waves were small on most days, which is perfect for small children. My daughter and I spent hours looking for shells and shark teeth, swimming and relaxing on the beach. There is a small state park not to far from the property which I ran to several times. We went jet skiing and paddle boarding and we walked into town for dinner. The sunsets here are AMAZING! My daughter keeps asking me when we can go back. The best part was that we only needed to pack our clothes! Everything else we could have possibly needed was there for us. If you are in need of a quiet peaceful retreat I highly recommended the Mermaid House. You will not be disappointed. :)
The last 3 years this has been the vacation spot of our choice. We pack our personal items in a suitcase and board the plain...Everything and I mean everything is at the Mermaid House that you need to enjoy your vacation. From the sunrise in the morning to the sunsets in the evening your only feet from the beautiful beach it is breath taking. My husband loves fishing while I love the quiet of beach. Thank you Darlene for another great vacation. xoxo
