vacation rental description

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 community's 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.

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!

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!

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

Review submitted: January 8, 2010   Date of arrival: January 8, 2009

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.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with teenagers, pet-friendly, romantic getaway
