About BARBIE EVERETT

My husband and I built this unit in 2005 and have successfully rented it out ever since. We have another family home in the community and are down there almost every weekend from May until October and always New Years Eve. We have been coming to the Cape for almost 30 years and have as many friends that live there as we do in our hometown of Tallahassee (2 hours away). I am very fortunate to have a good friend who lives right down the road, Glenn, who does my cleaning and maintenance.

We love to fish, snorkle and go boating in the bay as often as we can. We love the beach, especially in the fall and early spring but scalloping is our favorite sport and we do it every chance we get during season, July to September.

BARBIE EVERETT purchased this townhome in 2005

Why BARBIE EVERETT chose Florida Main North West

Affordable for the small family that does not want to share a more expensive house with a ton of people in order to pay the weekly rate.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi, Barbara. I meant to send you an e-mail once we returned, but work intervened. We had a great trip. The weather was wonderful and the location perfect.



The house is in a great location. Close to both beach and bay. The house is very clean and well-maintained, not your typical rental house. The screened-in porch is a great place to have coffee in the morning, with a distant view of the bay. Furniture is comfortable and linens are nice quality and in good supply.



We met Glenn (?) after we arrived and he said to call him if we needed anything. It was good to know that there was someone there, nearby, if we had a problem (which we never did).



I was a little apprehensive about staying in a "pet friendly" house, as you never know what you might find. But, we didn't need to worry. Everything was fine -- you would have never known that a pet had been there. We made sure we left it just as we found it. Our dog had a blast -- a non-swimmer before her trip, she ventured into the gulf several times during our week-long stay. She met several other dogs who loved to run, play, and swim and she just had to fit in. We were all disappointed when we had to leave on Sunday!



Although we usually pack a lot of kitchen supplies, it was nice to find the basics already in the house.



We loved the area and will be returning. Kayaking in the bay, hiking in the state park, walking on the beach, eating oysters............what a vacation!

One, Two, Three ... RELAX

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the splendid Blue Mermaid the first week in June of this year, and I am just now reviewing. The décor is beautiful in its soothing tones of soft blue and green, with touches of lime. We especially love the screened in porch, and ate the vast majority of our meals there. [The St. Joe Shrimp Company is about five minutes away, and has the freshest seafood I've encountered]. Yes, I'm one of those weirdos who love to cook ... and on vacation, no less! The Blue Mermaid's kitchen supplied everything I needed ... short of a charcoal grill outside. But back to the whole point of reviewing, this is just a beautiful accommodation that I wouldn't hesitate to rent again. Love, love, love the loft and read three books there! Thank you Barbie for offering this gem of a rental!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying at The Blue Mermaid and for your kind review. Would love to have you back anytime. I also love to cook, even on vacation. Can't beat your own fresh seafood and St. Joe Shrimp is opening an additional new store on the Cape and everyone is very excited to have them even closer.

Super friendly place

  • 5 of 5

The description was accurate, it was clean and well maintained, the owner was fantastic, friendly and kept us informed as to what was in the area, eg restaurants etc. We have already recommended this listing to other friends. We loved the restaurants in Port St. Joe and also Apalachicola, we went to Wakalla Springs and had a great day, we also went to the Dixie Theatre in Apalachicola which was great, we golfed and the golf course was good. This listing was well equipped, and had everything we needed and felt like a home and comfortable.

Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable and clean. Barbie was very nice to deal with and allowed us to check in early which we really appreciated. Longer trek to the beach than what I anticipated (since I fish I had to drag a bunch of stuff) but we needed the exercise. Overall, good stay.
