Property Details

Updated: Jul 2, 2016
Truly an Oasis in the heart of Old Englewood Village!

Mermaid Cove is in Olde Englewood Village on Lemon Bay, an inlet of the Gulf of Mexico.

This vintage-style 1940's renovated bungalow is just one block from Dearborn Street, the artistic district with many quaint shops and restaurants.

Wake up in the morning to the birds singing, take a nice stroll over to the local coffee house for your morning wake-up call. Bicycle over to Indian Mound Park for a little afternoon fishing. Grill your catch for dinner, then watch the beautiful sunset on Lemon Bay, just two blocks from the property! Enjoy the lovely beaches, hike the nature trails in the surrounding parks or just laze under the Florida pines with your favorite book. Or of course, SHOP til you drop or GOLF to your heart's desire - at the 20+ golf courses in Englewood alone!! The possibilities are endless!

This newly renovated property is a small, private complex located in a quiet residential area, on a large treed lot with ample free parking for your boat and trailer. This unit comes complete with a fully equipped kitchen, but who needs to cook with all of the great restaurants within walking distance! Come and enjoy Old Florida with us. Book now! Don't miss out!

Please note: This listing and rates are for Bungalow #3, a one bedroom / one bath unit.

Additional Units Available At Mermaid Cove are :

Unit 1 - 2 BR / 1 Bath

Unit 2 - 1 BR + Extra Sleeping Room / 1 Bath

Unit 4 - 1 BR / 1 Bath

my favorite Florida Destination!!!Ii

  • 5 of 5

I love the "Old Florida" atmosphere of the Englewood area of Southwest Florida, and the proximity to the lovely

beaches, state parks and great dining. It was fantastic to find Mermaid Cove Resort-everything I was looking for

and much more. The apatrments are fresh and inviting,decor is lovely, guest-friendly , including screened lanai

and private patio. The shops and galleries are steps away on Dearborn St. and there is usually a fair or festival

happening nearby. Lemon Bay State Park [fishing, boating , picnics] is just a few blocks away. Your amazing host,

Julie, will make you feel at home, and is a great resource for what's happening locally. Looking forward to my third

visit soon. Marge V. from Bucks County, PA>

We stayed here for over a month and enjoyed it immensely!

This is a comfortable, clean place, in a nice neighborhood.

Julie and Michael (the owners) were very helpful and provided us with lots of information about the area, it's restaurants, shops and activities.

The beaches and nature parks are tops!

We felt right at home our entire stay.
