About alice archibald

My husband and I are both from Florida and live near the property. We enjoy boating, fishing, scalloping, kayaking and all the beauty of the Weeki Wachee River along with the Gulf waters.

alice archibald purchased this house in 2014

Why alice archibald chose Florida

We purchased this home the end of Dec. 2014 and completed remodeling Feb. 2015 as a vacation home. Because we are from this area and generations past, we wanted to share with others what we appreciate daily. The Weeki Wachee River gives you peace, relaxation and takes you to a place where you can hear the birds in the morning, watch the ducks swim and see manatee swim by as you kayak or paddle around in our fun paddle boat.

What makes this house unique

The Mermaid Bungalow is fun and unique. It is a feel good, feel happy place with a fun purple kitchen and tropical soft colors in the bedrooms and bathrooms. You are able to relax and enjoy the simple things in life with that added adventure! SEE OLD FLORIDA in it's best with nature and have fun watching the MANATEES!!!

We are truly known for the cleanliness, save area and the extra fun features our Mermaid Bungalow gives. With having bikes, kayaks, paddle boat included make your stay an even more fun one!

Mermaid Bungalow is Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

This little bungalow was awesome!!! We live locally and wanted to spend some family time on the Weeki Wachee River. I'm so thrilled that we chose Mermaid Bungalow. From the moment that we arrived we loved it. Alice the owner really goes above & beyond to make your stay special. She even leaves special little treats for you :) Just about everything you need is there from sunscreen to sunglasses & even bug spray!! The place was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. We plan on staying here again in the future.

River House

  • 5 of 5

The Mermaid Bungalow was wonderful and Alice was a super host. We felt at home hanging and relaxing around the house. Everything in the house was cute and everything we needed was provided. We used the kayaks to explore the river. And we enjoyed reading on the screened in porch. We were a short drive to both Pine Island State Park (great sunsets) and the mermaid shows at Weekie Watchee Park. We had a great trip. Brett and Camryne

Better than ANY hotel. The Mermaid Bungalow truly felt like home.

  • 5 of 5

Alice is a wonderful, thoughtful host. From the moment we walked in the door, we felt at home. The house itself made our vacation one of the most memorable and enjoyable trips we've ever had. Alice thought of everything, and welcomed us like family.

We visit Weeki Wachee regularly, but this was the best time we've ever had, due to the efforts of the owners, to make their guests feel welcome. Thank you for such an awesome experience!

The Weeki Wachee attraction and water park is only minutes away where you can see live mermaids along with the mermaid show. Walt Disney and other Orlando attractions are only 1 1/2hrs from here. Local golfing, Pine Island which has a small white sandy beach and park (salt water) and Rogers Park with a white sandy beach (fresh water) are all very close by. Rogers Park has a playground fun for children, sandy volley ball court and have fun swimming in the Weeki Watchee River watching kayaks, paddle boats, boats and people having fun rafting on the river. A nice selection of places to eat located within minutes from our home or enjoy cooking from you own gas grill.
