The FUNkY Mermaid - Comfortable Cottage, Private Courtyard and Great Rates!

The FUNkY Mermaid - Comfortable Cottage, Private Courtyard and Great Rates!

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Mar 28, 2015
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Special memories can be made at this very private oasis on the quiet west end of Panama City Beach. Known for its festive decor and tasteful mermaid accents, this colorful Caribbean cottage is a short walk (1+ block) to the sugar white beach and beautiful emerald water. The beach is dedicated to the community and has no motels or condos.

Imagine a little Margaritaville as you walk through the welcoming gate. On the other side is a private entertainment courtyard complete with bar-b-que grill. It is perfect for private bathing in the sun or reading in the shade. There is even a chiminea for warming up on cool evenings.

Colorful Caribbean ambiance welcomes you into the cottage. Two sets of double doors open to the courtyard to create a secluded island atmosphere. Ceiling fans keep the cool breezes flowing while you enjoy your very own paradise.

Inside and out, this tropical 3 bedroom and 2 bath cottage is both fun and relaxing. There are 2 like-new firm queen beds, 1 new king bed 2011, and a new sleeper sofa 2012. Both bathrooms include a shower, sink and toilet.

Every year we upgrade items to make this cottage even more neat, comfortable, and fun. We added a new washer and dryer, all new rugs, and renovated the master bath to include a roomy 5-foot shower and a spacious 5-foot sink space. The dishwasher and roof are new and we added a TV in the master. In 2011, we replaced the king mattress, stove, and refrigerator and closed in the courtyard/backyard for pets. In 2012, we replaced the sleeper sofa. For 2013 we replaced all the patio furniture and painted the patio.

We are serious about making your stay a comfortable and memorable one. We hope you will consider our cottage for your vacation getaway or special occasion.

About the Owner

We both grew up with regular vists to Panama City Beach with our families. In 1974, the family bought a place right here in Laguna Beach. With our love of the ocean and this area, we wanted to make sure the kids and grandkids would have the same experiences so we found our special vacation home.

We have stayed in this house for 3 winter and could not ask for a better place to stay. The owners are excellent people
to handle your request. The idea of being close to the beach, with Pier Park not far away. Good neighborhood to walk
your dog and the people around you are nice and quiet. The beds are very comfortably and you have everything you
need in the house. Many close places to visits and lots of things to do.

My family and I had a great time in the Funky Mermaid House!!! The house was big enough for our family and the extra kids we had. We had so many compliments on the house from other friends that went on the trip to. Thank you for letting us use the Mermaid house, we had a great experience for our first time in Florida!!

a Good Time at the Funky Mermaid

  • 4 of 5
My Family including 3 teen aged boys a teen aged girl, my wife and I stayed here for 1 week. we had a blast. The location was great very conveient. We rented a golf cart for runs to the grocery store and back and forth to the beach, it was just the trick. The only thing I thought the house could have used was a wireless internet connection.

Owner's Response: Hi! This is Cheryl. Thank you so much for the review! We have added internet and as the writeup says we have remodeled the Master Bath. I am glad you had a great time!

Location

From the Owner

Our FUNkY Mermaid caught our eye immediately. The pine ceilings and tile floors bring back the nostalgia and the courtyard is a great place for private family fun. Even our pet, Sirena, can enjoy the courtyard without being leashed.

Activity and Interests

This unique cottage is a very short and easy walk to Thomas doughnut/snack shop, Carrousel grocery and wine store, and the most beautiful beach you can imagine! Restaurants, golf, miniature golf, movies, parasailing, jet skiing, the pier, water parks, and shopping are minutes away and it is just 2-1/2 miles from Frank Brown Ballpark.

Our new Pier Park shopping mall, with over 1 million square feet of shopping, includes Old Navy, Dillard’s, Ron Jon Surf shop, a 16 screen movieplex, major restaurant chains like Longhorn, Outback, Johnny Rocket, and local favorites like Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville.

There are enough restaurants to fill your every desire for eating out, or you can get fresh steamed shrimp or fish (with potatoes, corn, the best key lime pie, and more) from Buddy's market and eat at the cottage. Our new favorite is Mike's new Oyster Bar beside his Mike's Diner. Oh my goodness, the food is awesome!
