Mermaid's CastleMermaid's Castle
Mermaid's Castle is on a less traveled section of the beach. The grand kids enjoyed boogie boarding, kite flying and exploring. The house is beautifully decorated in tropical style and comfortable in every way. The floor to ceiling windows brought the outdoors in.The view was beautiful with trees, palms, dunes and ocean. There was a nice breeze on the deck. We enjoyed sitting out for coffee, dinner and games.
Our son's family liked the privacy of being downstairs. It has a king bedroom with bath across the hall and a lovely two queen bathroom suite. They also enjoyed quick access to the pool! We all gathered upstairs for meals and family time together. Table actually seats ten with four more at the counter!
The gardens in the front and back of the house were very relaxing to experience. Thank you James and Marla for being quickly available and presenting such a welcoming beach house. We hope to vacation at Mermaid's Castle again!
7th Family Reunion
The entire house is beautifully decorated and you truly feel so comfortable no matter where you are. The upper outside deck was a perfect spot for picture taking of all the different families; with the ocean and palm tress in the back round. The walk through the dunes was so nice everyday; we saw many turtles along the path. The beach is gorgeous and very family friendly. We brought our paddle boards and bikes and used them quite a bit. Daily boogie boarding was on the agenda as well. I brought two 10x10 tents for shade of which we put at the top of the dune nightly and they were completely safe.
Our trips into downtown St. Augustine were less then 30 minutes away. This is the 3rd time I have rented this home (the first two were for our group of 12 women for our annual chick weekend) Our pictures and memories this summer were priceless. Thank you to James and Marla for sharing their beautiful home.
