Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

The Mermaid Beach house is a townhouse located directly on the beach on Okaloosa Island. Spacious and roomy, this nicely decorated unit is great for a large family get together or for 2 families to meet. Friday to Friday rental during the peak season!

Destin, Florida is known as "the worlds luckiest fishing village", but we do not stop there! The whitest beaches of Florida and the Emerald Green waters are unmatched. Shop in an outlet mall, an upscale outdoor mall, or one of many boutique stores. When you are through shopping, there are endless places to enjoy the local fare or just get a quick bite. Don't forget about our water park, amusement parks, and our dozens of golf courses.

Reviewer Comments:

What's right about Mermaid House: 1) great location and very clean 2)Harmony Beach Vacations was attentive and polite What's wrong: 1) given 8 towels and 8 washcloths/stay TOTAL! 2)sliding glass door to beach IS INOPERABLE 3) writing on dryer knob is illegible 4)toilets upstairs do not flush, must hold handles for around a minute 5)sink in master bath DOES NOT DRAIN 6) tub downstairs DOES NOT DRAIN 7) electrical outlets in upstairs bathrooms DO NOT WORK, forget about drying your hair or using a curling iron 8)light over stove needs to be replaced 9)shower rod in master bath is disgusting, peeling 10)mirror in master bath has black spots all over it 11) no pillows or blanket for pull out sofa 12) all Teflon frying pans were peeling, we had to buy a new one so we could cook eggs for breakfast We stayed 4 nights. This condo is listed as sleeping 8. There is no way. We slept 5, 2 in the master, one in the full size bed upstairs and one downstairs, and one on the sofa. This townhouse is currently on the market for $675,000. I wonder if the owner doesn't want to invest ANY money for repairs/maintenance because of this. This townhouse needs some serious TLC.

Great location. Great price. As close to a private beach experience as you can get without having a private beach. Very convenient townhome.

I can't even begin to say how much we are in love with the mermaid house and location, from the time we walked in and saw the view we knew this would a vacation to remember, other then a few needed updates to the house it was excellent, we will be booking a vacation there really soon, if the mermaid house is not available I think we won't go to fort Walton.

We have been staying at the Mermaid House for the last few years. It is always clean and welcoming and the proximity to the beach is the best, just open the door and walk out. We used the shopping services and that was great having supplies already there we we arrived. We had to have maintenance come and fix a door that would not open and they were there promptly and fixed it right away.

We enjoyed our stay on Okaloosa Island. The beach wasn't crowed and it wasn't too "touristy". We spent a quiet week relaxing on the beach. If we wanted entertainment, we could drive a short distance and find anything we wanted to do. It was an awesome experience for all of us!
