We have stayed here for 10 years, we are extremely happy with Mermaid's Reef!
Overall, the home was incredibly located with spectacular ocean access and well equipped for our 4 families.
Twiddy and the Owner made sure to check in and ensure that the home and vacation were perfect for us. The kitchen with double appliances was a must for making dinners, and the poolside bar was a big hit for daytime drinks as well as evening outdoor meals. Being right on the ocean with just a short walk over the dunes to the beach allowed everyone to spend as much time in the sand as they wanted with no extra effort. The bed rooms were great for the couples and the bunk room was perfect for the single guests among us. The house was laid our perfectly to allow anyone who needed their own space to find it readily and avoid the crowds. Conversely, when we wanted to have everyone together, the shared areas were plenty spacious for us all. Overall, it was a perfect vacation made possible by a perfect home.
