Mermaid House

3-Bedroom, 2.5 Bath

This charming family beach house offers the perfect spot for beachfront relaxation.  The front porch, living room, kitchen and dining area all have dramatic views of the Gulf of Mexico. Open the front doors to bring in the cooling Gulf breezes or sit on the shaded downstairs front porch, swing on the porch swing and watch dolphins and manatees roam up and down the sandbar.  This home is situated directly ON the beach for the best views ever of our Little Gasparilla sunsets.  Yet it is just a short walk from the community dock.  Dock 38 is shared by other owners on the lane, and this rental comes with access to a slip on the dock if you choose to rent a boat or kayak during your stay -- or bring your own.  The Mermaid Beach House has two grills, gas and charcoal, and comes with beach chairs, beach umbrella and beach toys along with a kayak for guest's use.  The master bedroom has a king size bed and an en suite bathroom with shower.  The guest bedroom has a queen and there is a third bedroom with a twin.  These two bedrooms share a second bathroom in the hallway.   The home sleeps 5 guests comfortably.  There is also a third small half bath downstairs on the deck level.  The kitchen is fully equipped with both a drip coffee maker and an espresso machine, trash compactor, dish washer and all the appliances you need to cook a simple beach meal or a gourmet feast.  The home is stocked with basic pantry items and all cookware, dishes, utensils and linens are available for your use, including beach towels. The home has a covered porch upstairs in addition to an open porch for sunning.  There is also a covered porch under the house which allows you to sit in the shade and still watch the kids on the beach.
