The single-level home can sleep as many as six people—and one or two pets as well. That’s right: You don’t have to board your four-legged friend in a kennel while you enjoy the good life. Both bedrooms include a luxurious king-size bed, a flat-screen TV, and a ceiling fan whose gentle breeze will help lull you sleep. The primary suite features direct access to the sunroom, so you can get a jump-start on the morning without waking the others. It also has a private bathroom that, like the house’s second bathroom, includes a combination shower/tub. You can rev yourself up with a brisk shower in the morning, then wind down with a relaxing bath at night.
Additional guests can sleep in the living area, thanks to the sofa that opens into a queen-size bed. Along with the couch, the living area has a roomy armchair and a well-cushioned recliner. The whole gang will be able to gather together to watch a movie on the flat-screen TV with cable or play Balderdash.
The living area flows into the dining area. The dining table seats six people with ease. Two people can belly up to the adjacent breakfast bar, which is a handy place to set up your laptop and take advantage of the free WiFi. The breakfast bar also serves as additional kitchen counter space. Even if you eat your main meals at the many local restaurants, it’s still great having a fully equipped kitchen like Mermaid Retreat’s at your disposal 24/7. Whether you’re making a batch of margaritas or a holiday feast, you’ll find all the appliances, cookware, and tableware you’ll need. Have a hankering for barbecue? There’s a gas grill out back too.
Like the primary bedroom, the dining area opens onto the sunroom. Spanning the width of Mermaid Retreat, the sunroom is furnished with a sofa, bistro table, and plenty of chairs. You could easily while away your entire day out here, watching palm trees sway in the fresh breeze. Or bring the chairs out to the dock and fish or watch for dolphins and manatees in the canal.
When you arrive at Mermaid Retreat, you’ll find the beds perfectly made up with extra bedding ready and waiting and plenty of clean towels for both bathrooms. No need for you to bring your own sheets or bath towels. In fact, you can pack especially light due to the in-house washer and dryer!
While the canal and the beach are no doubt the key attractions, Mermaid Retreat is close to many more things to see and do. You can drive to Marineland, Fort Matanzas, and St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park in 15 minutes or less; the Lightner Museum, historic St. George Street, the Old Jail, and Ponce de Leon’s Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park are among the many attractions with a half-hour’s drive.
