Overview

About the property

Tropical dream on a wide canal with quick access to the bay or beach.

Best of Everything!

This beautifully appointed home has 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths upstairs, and a convenient ground level bathroom. A brand new hot tub was just added to this already delightful home! Enjoy the hot water outdoor shower under 40 foot palm trees that will make you never want to shower indoors again! Comfortably sleeps eight adults on 3 queen sized beds and a new sofa bed. Well equipped kitchen with all appliances, microwave, coffee maker, blender, toaster, and waffle iron. Table/bar seating for 10 people to dine indoors although you will probably spend your time in the beautiful outdoor space with 4 tables and plenty of seating. If you are indoors you can enjoy the original art on the walls or watch television from the main bedroom or family area.

Bask in the sun on a huge upstairs deck or relax in the expansive shady space downstairs. Listen to music from the outdoor speakers with stereo and i-pod connection while mixing a frosty beverage in the Margaritaville machine or grabbing a cold drink from the downstairs refrigerator. Outdoor grill available for your steaks and propane burner with stock pot for a memorable shrimp boil.

Need a little outdoor fun? Four kayaks and cruiser bicycles are there to cruise the canals and the bi ways.

Enjoy fishing in the bay? Bring your boat (capacity 22 to 24 foot) which can be docked onsite in the convenient boat house with lift. Jet ski lift is also available. Night fishing is great fun from the fishing deck into the underwater lights where you can see the fish swimming. Just a short distance to dining, drinking, grocery shopping, and convenience stores.

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time last weekend at The Mermaids Lair! The house was clean and had plenty of room for all. My boys, ages 12 and 17, had a great time kayaking in the canal, fishing off the dock and of course fishing out on the boat with their dad! Very relaxing.

Checking in and out was easy, as Tana is wonderful to work with and responded quickly! We are looking forward to a future stay at The Mermaids Lair! Thank you Tana for making our stay absolutely AWESOME!

Our family really enjoyed our time here. We wish we could've stayed longer

  • 4 of 5

The outdoor areas were beautiful and the hammock was my favorite place for relaxing with my book. Having access to the kayaks was a huge plus for our family with teenagers. There were some general maintenance things with the house that need to be fixed ( dryers & mini blinds not working) but still an overall good experience here.

Owner's Response: I apologize for the dryer problem. I know Tana tried to fix the problem as soon as she was aware of the issue. I will have the mini blinds checked. Over all we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and would like to have you stay with us again.

Wonderful stay at Mermaid's Lair!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I truly enjoyed our recent stay at the Mermaid's Lair. The house was very clean and the well stocked kitchen provided everything we needed to cook some of the meals for our vacation. There was plenty of space for all of us to feel comfortable. The boys enjoyed fishing from the canal and we all enjoyed the kayaks and the close proximity to the beach. The little community pool was fun too. It was a wonderful stay for us!

We make every effort to provide amenities that will make your stay one that you will remember. If you have any suggestions please email Tana, the manager. We hope to see you again. Oh, by the way, fishing is the best in the main canal about a two block walk.
