MERMAID'S HIDEAWAY - Kick back and relax at this beautiful ground floor villa. This cozy island retreat has been impeccably furnished with a decorator's touch. With 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, the layout comfortably accommodates 6-8 guests for the perfect beach getaway.
The villa is ideally suited for fun and relaxation, with comfortable furnishings and plenty of amenities for a laid-back vacation. The wireless internet, DVD player, portable speaker system, and flat screen TV's in every room will keep you plugged into the modern world if you so desire. This home was completely remodeled and offers vaulted ceilings, solid wood cabinets, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances. The living area has a queen sleeper sofa and opens to your own private pool with lush tropical landscaping.
Grab some chairs and towels because you're just steps away from one of the most beautiful sugar-white beaches in all of America. If you're feeling adventurous, you can grab the kayak or paddle board and explore for dolphins in the turquoise waters of the Gulf. Once back from the beach, rinse off in the outdoor shower and relax by the heated pool in your own tropical paradise. If you want to explore the island, jump on the free trolley across the street.
Small pets will be considered with an additional fee. Inquire about availability for stays less than 7 nights.
Must be 21 years of age or older to rent. There is a strict no smoking policy within the villa. Dogs less than 30lbs will be considered with a non-refundable $150 deposit. All guests must pay a $125 cleaning fee regardless of duration of stay.
Our stay at Mermaids Hideaway was just perfect. The house was clean and immaculate with plenty of room for our party of four. Everything in the way of fixtures and fittings were at hand and we loved the decor and homely touches which reflected the vibe of Anna Maria Island perfectly. We also loved the pool and well- tended tropical garden at the rear. Just a couple of minutes walk away was the beautiful beach, perfect for early morning walks and beautiful sunsets. Brian was a great host, responsive and on hand if needed. We have fallen for Anna Maria Island and hope to return soon.
Our host was very prompt in answering any questions about the home or traveling around the area. He left us a little gift for when we arrived, and the instructions for checking in and out were very clear. The home was as beautiful as I expected, and looked like the photos on the website. I might recommend adding square footage to the listing, as this home was a bit smaller than I anticipated, but still fit our needs comfortably. Brian went above and beyond what other homes have offered in terms of beautiful dishes, everything you could need to cook (or make a daiquiri!), and fun toys for the pool and beach. We had a wonderful time and I would recommend the mermaid's hideaway to everyone!
Brian is a wonderful, responsive host with the perfect home. You cannot beat the location nor layout of the home- perfect for a family. The gorgeous gulf and free trolley are just steps away and great restaurants are nearby in Holmes beach! The home also offers a fully stocked kitchen, beach towels.. Essentially everything you need for your stay. The heated private pool was just another added bonus. I would highly recommend Brian's home. Our only regret is forgetting to sign the guest book!
We have just had a fantastic stay in this super house. We are a family of 5 persons and there was enough space for all of us. The house has a wonderful location near the beach. The little garden with heated pool is well cultivated and very beautiful.
The house is lovely decorated with seashells, starfish, seahorses and very nice pictures. Everything was clean and well functioning.
We found everything what we needed. Our kids loved that house and we can recommend the house and his very friendly host Brian. Many thanks for the wonderful time. Best wishes, Harald & family
Mermaid's Hideaway was great! Every bit as beautiful as it looks in the photos. Brian and his family were lovely and gracious hosts. Many thanks! We had a wonderful time.
We had a wonderful time. The property was beautifully kept and had everything we could need. We look forward to our family vacations since it is so hard for us all to get together. This was the perfect venue. Brian was very gracious and helpful.
My wife and I fell in love with Anna Maria Island in 2007 while visiting on our two-year wedding anniversary. We loved the “old Florida” charm, the quaintness, the friendly people, the laid-back feel and the beautiful beaches. We also enjoyed seeing no high-rise hotels/condos, fast food chains and other things that make typical beach towns feel too “touristy.”
Guests of the Mermaid’s Hideaway have one complaint…they never want to leave. We too love sneaking away to paradise with our two daughters (ages 5 and 3), along with our dog Max. We plan to create many fond family memories here. Hopefully you will as well! We have had fun decorating the villa and putting our own personal touches on making it not only comfortable and relaxing, but a place that our guests can call “home away from home.” We know that you won’t be disappointed.
