Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our vacation staying at the Mernaid house! Great location, great pool, plenty of room for everyone. Angela was so nice to work with and very quick to respond. The golf cart was kind of fun but it never would go faster than 10-12 miles per hour so we were afraid to drive it very far so that was a little disappointing but other than that, everything else was wonderful and we had a very nice time. Would definitely love to stay there again!

Nice location

  • 3 of 5

This house was a lot roomier than what it appears in pictures and on the outside. For the most part, it was a decent stay, I have stayed in WAY worse but I do have a couple of complaints. The golf cart had expired tags, and we paid to rent it but were unable to drive it more than once because the battery's were so corroded that my husband had to get off and push it up a hill with a line of traffic behind us. After the battery was charged all day and night, there were other golf carts zooming past us not to mention cars behind us. When we first walked in there was a lady cleaning the pool, and the pool did not appear to have been cleaned at all, there was debris everywhere, so not sure what she was even doing to the pool. Also, upon our arrival there was a cockroach so big I thought it was a beetle on the ceiling in the dining room, along with several other cockroaches we found scurrying out from underneath kitchen hand towels we picked up and out of drawers. There was also someone elses hair on our bed sheets when we pulled down the covers on our first night. We also found what appeared to be blood stains on our bed skirt, and the towels were also all stained. My dogs also kept finding left over food (not from us) under couches, and cracks between cabinets and under the fridge. The property manager was easy to get ahold of by phone call only, she did not respond to messages on here after we paid our payment. We also had no clue how to get into the house, because a gate code and house key information was not messaged to me, or on any of the paperwork, so I had to call for that.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend staying at this house. It is close to the beach and a lot of great restraunts. Highly recommend Pompano Joes. We had 6 adults and 2 kids and we all had plenty of room here. We can't wait to return and would definetly stay here again.

Convenient location

  • 3 of 5

This was a nice place and a very convenient location. We stayed in the beginning of April. The pool water was still a little chilly, but not cold enough to stop a four year old from swimming. It did warm up some by the time we left. This would be nice to have in summer before the water got TOO warm.

The beach is about 2 blocks walk from the house. There is public parking about 1 mile down the road and that's what we used every day. With hauling the "stuff" for the kids and adults, it was the easiest place to park.

The house is equipped with all the expected appliances and dinnerware. (one hint: Bring your own plastic forks and spoons as we were constantly doing dishes.)

The beds were ok. Son-in-law complained of the mattress being VERY hard in guest room.

Both toddlers enjoyed their own rooms.

There are some games and puzzles for the youngsters, which was handy.

Some of the furniture is worn and dated, but still functional.

Water pressure was adequate for showers.

The area was very nice and we would definitely stay in this area again. Central to restaurants and shopping.

All-in-all, a pleasant stay.
