"Our family of five stayed eight glorious nights at Mermaid Cove. Our family has stayed at several Homeaway rentals throughout the years. This rental is one of the top rentals that we have had the pleasure of staying at. The amenities are top notch. The kitchen is simply beautiful and is one of the largest kitchens I have ever seen. Every utensil you could ever want. Double sinks, double ovens, granite countertops, barstools, coffee maker, double dishwashers, a blender for margaritas, etc.. The view of Buck Island is second to none. Every morning we would wake up, enjoy a fresh cup of coffee and take in the surrounding views of crystal clear blue waters. We would watch sailboats every morning sail by in cobalt blue waters. The living room has a flat screen 60" television with surround sound, DVD, and Dish TV. The living rooms large sectional couch had plenty of room for our family of five. We spent most our evenings there just enjoying time with one another or watching a movie. There is air conditioning in every room and each adequately cooled us comfortably. The washer and dryer are newer upscale appliances. They are a life saver after a day at the beach and are located in an exclusive laundry room. The thing that sets this rental apart from other Homeaway rentals is that it's very clear the owner has spent considerable time covering every amenity a guest could ever want or desire. I was very impressed with how much thought was put into every room. Oh, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the two cats that would come to visit us on occasion....my nine year old has missed them dearly. They are the sweetest! Restaurants are nearby. We really enjoyed Cheeseburger in Paradise and Blue Water Terrace. Both are nearby and the food was excellent. Some of the best snorkeling and beaches are nearby. Shoy's beach is no more than a 5 minute drive. Issac's bay was excellent for snorkeling and nearby also (a bit of a hike for the adventurous). If visiting St. Croix don't forget the beer drinking pigs...that was amazing. Lastly, we really enjoyed our time at Rhythms @ Rainbow Beach. Here you can jet ski, paddle board, play sand volleyball, snorkel, or just relax and sunbathe with a pina colada from Rhythms restaurant nearby. Probably the best part of our St. Croix vacation was being able to come back to Mermaid Cove at the end of every day. We couldn't have asked for a better home for our vacation. Thank you Melissa."
