"The setup of the house is great. Loved that it was only two story, instead of three like we usually end up with for 4 bedrooms. Love there was a bedroom on the first floor, but it’s a bit tight. Wish my parents could have had a king, but there was not enough room. Wonderful to have a shower out back, and you guys did great stocking up the Beach equipment. That was a nice surprise! Lots of chairs, boogie boards, and sand toys. We brought our own, but just so the next guest sees this. They have them. Great three bedrooms upstairs. The bathrooms need an update, and I do agree with previous guests, the cleaning wasn’t great when we got there. (Mostly the floors were still pretty dirty, I know sand is hard to get up, but our feet were really dirty day one). We had a broken coffee maker, but the management company was extremely responsive, and we had a new one within a few hours. Thank you! Pots and pans are rough, they need to be replaced when you can. The neighborhood was so peaceful and quaint. We loved sitting out on the porch in the evenings.
Walk to the beach was a bit longer than we thought, BUT the beach access stairs were the BEST we ever have had down here! Only 17 steps! We counted because my mom just had her knee replaced this year, totally thought she’d have to skip the beach, but she was able to get down there! A bit crowded, condo right there at beach access, but pool was great. Very friendly people. Overall great trip. Thank you for sharing your home!"

Couldn’t ask for a nicer place in a perfect location so close to the beach. My family and I loved it and will definitely stay again here.

"This was our second year in a row booking Mermaids Rest. Positives, great location, great house with lots of room and bathrooms. Only issue we had was the floors downstairs are so dirty your feet turn black, but I honestly think this is a battle at any beach house. With the battle of sand on the tile floors it’s almost impossible. They did have a well stocked kitchen and a grill. The neighborhood was super friendly as well. Parking is super easy, enough for 3 good sized vehicles. I would definitely rent the property again."

"Lovely home for a week away. This was my family’s second time staying here. Everything was great except there were a few things (water bottle, empty bag of chips in a bedroom closet) that didn’t get cleaned up from the previous renters. There was also a cabinet in the kitchen that wouldn’t stay closed."

"Mermaids’ Rest is in a great location. We love this area of Seagrove and this was our second time staying in Cassine Village. It is about an 8 minute walk to the beach access and is in a very quiet area, close to community pool and tennis courts. We had air conditioning problems throughout our whole stay. We had to contact benchmark multiple times about the issue and the temperature stayed 75 even after the unit was supposedly fixed. The air conditioner can’t manually be changed to below 72 degrees even if it would have worked our average temperature was 75 and one day went up to 85. The freezer also didn’t make ice at first and the fridge wasn’t cooling well until a few days into the trip. The house is as pictured and most of the house was clean except the floors were very dirty. Our feet were black within minutes of taking our shoes off. The downstairs mattress also needs to be replaced, it sags very bad in the middle. One last issue we had was with the TVs, they weren’t working and benchmark had to come out and reset them. Overall we had a great trip, but there were a few inconveniences throughout the week, especially the air conditioner."

"A lovely place for families of all ages. If the beach is too crowded, and the one within walking distance usually is, the pools were not, so you could choose where you wanted to be. The location is within walking distance of great restaurants and a bit of shopping."

"We stayed at Mermaid’s Rest for two weeks and absolutely loved the neighborhood. It was quaint and quiet, perfect for our family and in a great location. We biked all of 30A from here, and spent a lot of time in Seaside! We loved that the owners left a binder of all local recommendations and a guide of the area. The house was spacious with a good layout and equipped with everything we needed. We were able to walk or quickly bike to the beach!

The downfall was the cleanliness of the house. It did not appeared properly cleaned at all. Our feet were black within an hour of entering the house and walking around. It felt there was a layer of grime on everything. There was a ton of very visible dust under the beds, there was hair in the showers and mold in the toilets. It took my husband 45 minutes to clean the grill before using. I ended up spending a day doing a full clean of the house before we were able to settle in.

Aside from that, we had an Incredibly memorable trip and would definitely rent in Cassine Gardens again!"

"We did have a couple of maintenance issues before we arrived- and I am so happy to say they were all resolved before we ever checked in. It was all smooth sailing after that. The house is so charming & conveniently located to so much, yet the neighborhood has the perfect small town feel & was always so quiet."

"Lovely home in a lovely community & convenient location. Home needs some TLC, though. Floors were extremely dirty (black dirt; not sand). Dishwasher smelled horrible when we opened it to load a few dishes so we could run it as we departed. Toilets had a lot of black crud up under the rim. Various minor repairs need to be made. We did not let any of these issues deter us from enjoying our stay, but this lovely home definitely needs a deep cleaning & better overall maintenance. I would recommend this property to a friend b/c it’s such a nice home in a great location—BUT ONLY IF this home first receives some TLC."

"The rental's location is absolutely perfect. We loved the neighborhood and the proximity to the beach. The property itself is well maintained and the set up of the house worked perfectly for our family with 6 adults and 3 kids. However, one major glaring issue was the mattresses. They were all uncomfortable and looked to be very old. I would absolutely come back but only if the mattresses were replaced."

"What a beautiful destination! The location of Mermaids Rest is perfect. Quiet neighborhood within walking distance of the beach. The included umbrella/chair service is a great addition, although the guidelines could be a little more clear. Watching fireworks on the beach on July 4 was a highlight of our trip! Unit has everything you need to enjoy time at the beach including chairs, toys and floats. It also has plenty of appliances/perks to make it comfortable to stay inside. A welcome addition would be a map of the Cassine Garden neighborhood, showing the two pools and the trails. Keyless entry made it easy for individuals to come and go on their own schedule. An option to reduce the morning sun in the bedrooms would be helpful for the guests that would like to sleep in. I hope that I can return to enjoy this beautiful home again!"
