Relaxing Stay on a Beautiful River

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved our time on the Weeki Wachi River while staying at Pam's Mermaid House! Clean and comfortable lodging, while being surrounded by colorful unique furnishings. We highly recommend the place and Pam was a wonderful hostess, making sure we had everything we needed and advising us on local things we could do.

We enjoyed the opportunity to prepare breakfast in the outdoor bar area which really worked for us and added to the ambiance of the experience. Just make sure if you plan to stay at this wonderful home that you are aware that there is no formal kitchen. There is a full size fridge and coffee maker in the sun room along with a griddle under cover in the outside bar. Again, this was idea for us, but just make sure significant cooking is not in your plans and you will be beyond satisfied with your stay in this wonderful abode.

We put our kayaks in at the backyard steps and paddled up to the head of the springs 5 miles up river and then back down. What a beautiful river and such a unique experience to launch and complete your paddle at your own lodging. Sitting out by the river before bedtime was so relaxing you could hardly make it to the bed due to being so chilled out.

Again, we can without reservation recommend your stay at Pam's charmingly whimsical lodging on the banks of the Weeki Wachee River!!

Flamboyant, fun and ready for a party

  • 4 of 5

Pam's Mermaid House is as bright and splashy anything your imagination could conjure. The bedrooms are very comfortable and surprisingly quiet. Pam is an excellent host and did everything to make sure our visit as enjoyable. The home was clean and bright. The location, right on the river, and the availability of kayak use was the big draw for us, a couple in our early 60s. We were very put off by the riotousness of the young people on the river in kayaks, canoes and motor boats (mostly ignoring the no wake sign) on Sunday and the holiday Monday, Until late afternoon the din of the music from many revelers plus the shouting and obnoxious behavior kept us inside. Later afternoons and weekdays were wonderful with fewer river users and therefore the ability to enjoy the wildlife and the natural beauty of the place. I can see no reason why blaring music should be allowed when the whole idea of being on the river is to be in a natural setting.

My hold out in a perfect rating is the lack of a reasonable way to prepare food, and especially, clean up after eating. Most of the kitchen equipment, except for the coffee pot and a refrigerator, are outside. In the dark, negotiating the microwave behind the bar is tricky. I got stung my some unseen insect while negotiating the area which caused significant swelling on my leg and worries about what else i could not see there. The wash up sink is across the lawn next to the river. A hose provides the water source but it literally drains straight into the river. As an environmental educator, I cannot wash dishes with Dawn and dump it into a natural waterway. I would prefer not to use paper products and add to the trash. So another set up would be very appreciated.

I would recommend the rental. It is over-the-top in decorations with bling on most everything, including glitter on the driveway and patios and plastic flowers and lights everywhere. You are guaranteed a memorable experience on a lovely location.

Exactly as described and perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We watched manatees swim in the pristine water in front of house, kayaked for hours with provided kayaks, ate at all the places Pam suggested and they were wonderful, danced at night to sound system and fabulous light show. Never even turned on a TV! Pam even provided a birthday ballon for my daughter!

Just Like The Photos!

We loved spending the days on the river and thought the home was unique and charming. Pam was a lovely hostess and took us through the home upon our arrival. She asked us to contact her for any questions or concerns, but we didn't have any as the home is perfect.

You could not ask for a more beautiful location on the Weeki Wachee River.

  • 5 of 5

We adore Pam and her creative mermaid house. She made us feel like friends, welcoming us with Happy Birthday painted in the driveway because she knew we were celebrating my daughter's birthday. In addition to comfortable beds and an incredible outdoor space to hang out in, she makes sure you have everything you need. If having manatees swim by throughout the day wasn't amazing enough, she has a light show that automatically turns on for you when the sun sets. We didn't want to leave and have already made reservations for a return visit. Thank you Pam for providing us with an amazing get away.
