Mermaid's Castle

Review submitted: July 24, 2013   Date of arrival: July 6, 2013

My husband and I live in St. Augustine,Fl. We had been looking forward to finding a beach house to celebrate our 40th anniversary with family. We looked up and down our Florida coasts to find the right house. We found a treasure right here in St. Augustine on Crescent Beach.
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

Review submitted: July 8, 2013   Date of arrival: June 22, 2013

We had our 7th family reunion with over 40 people this year. Six other houses were rented in the same neighborhood. I shared Mermaids Castle with my sister and her family and we all had more than enough room and space. Our home was the go to place for our evening gatherings around the pool and throughout the upstairs. What an awesome week we spent with our families from all over the US. Mermaids Castle held us all very comfortably and we even played corn hole poolside and on the beach. The weather was perfect for our outdoor evening get togethers while grilling. Lots of places for all to spread out to eat, drink and be merry.

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.

8th Annual Chick Weekend

Review submitted: January 25, 2013   Date of arrival: January 17, 2013

WOW! Once again the Mermaids Castle was just perfect for our group of women. So much space for all of us very comfortably. The view is awesome, the walk to the beach through the sand is just so pretty. The house was spotless and everything in perfect working condition. The pool and upper deck area are awesome gathering places and we were blessed to have gorgeous weather this weekend. The open kitchen to the dining and living area allowed for all of us to be together. I personally have rented the home for a week this coming June for my family and very excited to be back at Mermaids Castle. Great home, great vibe, great location......the owners James and Marla and wonderful and very accommodating! Thank you again for an awesome weekend!
