"Such a wonderful place! Beautiful and relaxing! The facility is going through some renovations, but still great. When we stepped inside everyone was so impressed and felt at home. We all slept great, which usually doesn’t happen. The office managers and staff were very helpful. We all needed a break from the rush of every day and Dancing Mermaid was just what we needed! Thank you! We are already looking to book another stay this summer!"

"Overall this property is adorable, clean, and cozy with all the amenities. I would definitely stay here again. The floor wasn’t as clean as I would have wanted. I sent an email about it, and with in the hour they sent three people to clean the floors. The owner of the property called and apologized. She made it right with good communication! The large balcony overlooking the large pool and palm trees was nice! You can see the ocean from a far distance but, I wouldn’t necessarily call it an ocean view."

"Comfortable and quiet. Very impressed with the overall look and comfort of the place. Facilities were good. Workout area could use some attention. Pool area was cleaned daily and we had the place to ourselves most of the time. Loved how the apartment sat back away from the road and was protected from the wind and car noise. Kids loved the wildlife that hanged around the pool area and the birds made for a very tropical experience."

"The place was beautiful and just as described in the pictures. The fully stocked kitchen was a huge help. There were board games, plenty of regular and pool towels, and beach toys for kids. We fully enjoyed our stay. The only changes I would make would be the shower curtains (I think it's time for new ones), a good mopping of bathroom floors (we found hair when we entered), and the tub was very slow to drain. Other than those minor things, I would definitely stay again."

Kitchen had lots of supplies and make cooking easy. Warning: Be sure to bring all food items you need including things like salt and pepper. Property has multiple pools plus a hot tub. You can walk to the beach. There is not cross walk and street is busy but there is a center turn lane. Beach is a bit narrow at this point.

"We love your place. We have a few suggestions you might consider. 1. Guest room needs a dresser for storage with a surface area for guest items such as books, laptop, paper. 2. The orange drapes are harsh, a softer relaxing color would be great. 3. The light under the microwave doesn't work and 4. Condo needs a broom."
