Charming Cottage stay!
5/5 stars
From the booking to the departure we could not have been more pleased with the process, accommodations and amenities. Each room in this cottage has been delightfully yet tastefully decorated. It was impeccably clean upon arrival with adequate paper towels and tissues for our entire stay. It was a bonus to find a few essentials in the kitchen spice cabinet and plenty of coffee pods for the Kuerig. There is also a coffee pot for those who prefer. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking. Both bathrooms had shampoo/conditioner and soap. Thoughtfully, also a few laundry pods for the washer/dryer. There was a table with two chairs on the patio at which to enjoy morning coffee. Unfortunately, the intense heat prevented us from using the gathering area in the back yard. Of note, the cottage is a short drive to the historic district with a bounty of great restaurants. Our family of 3 adults, 1 teen and 2 11 year olds (1 with Autism) enjoyed the trolley, touring the jail and museum, The Alligator farm and lots of meals out. Heat index often drove us back to the air conditioned cottage to rest and refresh.

Betty, thank you for your spectacular review. We are so pleased you and your family had an enjoyable stay. We hope that you come again, perhaps when it is not quite so hot. There is so much to see and experience all year in our beloved city!

Very Cozy Cottage!
5/5 stars
This home was very lovely. Owners were rapid to respond when rental third party company did not provide entry access code. Checked back with us to make sure we got in ok. This cottage is filled with very nice decorations. There's area in the home were there wasn't anything interesting to look at. Welcome hand written note on front table, complimentary gourmet coffee and other essentials. There were local attraction brochures and coupons. House was very clean and in order. If and when we go bract to St Augustine will seriously consider staying here again.
- Carmen

Carmen, it was a pleasure hosting you! We are sorry you had confusion with the door code, as our team strives to provide very clear instructions for check-in. The owner's and our team make it a goal for our guests to feel at home here, and are glad to hear those expectations were met during your time with us! We look forward to the opportunity to host you in the future!

Stellar St. Augustine Spot!

I truly enjoyed my stay at the Mermaid Cottage. It is in a quiet neighborhood with all of the thoughtful touches that are needed and wanted, away from home. The kitchen is ample, common spaces cozy and bedrooms above and beyond. It is also close to downtown and convenient for sight-seeing. I highly recommend this location for your next St. Augustine stay. I certainly hope I’ll return!!

Great place! .. Mermaid Cottage is magical. So envious of the creativity that went into this house. Tiny and quaint on the outside but don't let that fool you, this place is very spacious. Well kept and most important...clean! Loved the fully stocked coffee bar. Close to EVERYTHING in St. Augustine. Again, the repurposed creativity and decorations are amazing

Florida Wedding
4/5 stars
The home was a great place to come home to after a hot day of sightseeing and wedding activities. Private and welcoming and comfortable and cool. The only complaint was the mattress on the hide abed. It was a "torture rack" with springs and coils every way you turned.
- Susan

Susan, thank you for your review, we sincerely apologize that the bed was not was not to your liking during your stay. It is always our goal for guests to be able to enjoy all amenities our homes have to offer. Thank you again for this valuable information as we always welcome the opportunity to improve.

Awesome weekend
5/5 stars
We came into town for our daughter’s wedding. We had a wonderful weekend and we couldn’t have asked for a better stay. The Mermaid Cottage was way more than we expected. The house had plenty of room and was equipped with everything you need plus more. Enjoyed my morning coffee out back on the deck. Neighbor hood looks a little rough but it’s like that throughout St. Augustine. The neighbors were really nice. We loved our stay and would definitely be back more.

Thank you for the great review, Sheleta! We are happy to have played a part in your daughter's special day. We hope you stay with us again soon!

The accomodations were great - welcoming and cozy. It was more spacious than I expected. The downside was the neighborhood. It seemed run down and for the majority of our stay, there was a large load trailer parked across the street.

Exceptional Property, Exceptional Hosts
5/5 stars
Our stay at Mermaid Cottage was so enjoyable, easily a 5 star rating. The cottage is spacious, comfortably furnished and the decorations are whimsical and attractive. There are thoughtful touches throughout: night lights in every room, knives that are sharp, pads of paper & pens, a very helpful welcome book, even a yoga mat. The hosts provided a more than generous pantry with supplies of every kind. The location was ideal for us: quiet, residential, nice backyard and very close to shops, highways and attractions. The hosts are amazingly responsive, answering questions within minutes and replacing a toaster that stopped working the same day it was reported. Could not ask for more.

Ellen, we so enjoyed hosting you and your husband! Thank you for the amazing review, and we are thrilled to hear you had such an enjoyable time! Please stay with us again!

A Pleasant Stay At The Mermaid Cottage
5/5 stars
I chose the Mermaid Cottage for a reunion with my sisters. We had not seen each other for 3 years. I could not be more pleased. The cottage is warm and welcoming. There seems to be nothing was overlooked in meeting a guest’s every need. The neighborhood is quiet yet close to all St. Augustine attractions. We had a wonderful stay and I’m sure I’ll be returning. St. Augustine is my favorite Florida city.

Loved the cottage, decorated beautifully. Has everything you need. We even brought our keurig, but there was one here. It is very convenient to hop on hop off trolley and to everything downtown. Winn Dixie right down the rd. Close to the marina for sunset tour. Will definitely return. The only thing better would be if it was pet friendly
- Mary

Mary, Thanks so much for staying with us at Mermaid Cottage. We are so glad to hear you enjoyed the cottage and its proximity to everything. The reason the cottage is not pet friendly is because the owner has medical issues. We hope you will come again soon! Thanks for the review:)

FL/GA Family Vacay
5/5 stars
Our stay at Mermaid Cottage was nearly perfect! A comfortable, beautiful and whimsical delight ... home away from home for a wonderful family visit. Quiet neighborhood, convenient to historic St Aug, spacious and well-appointed. This home is obviously loved and has been well cared for by the current owners. Their renovations are beautiful! I noted some other reviews commenting on the musty smell ... having grown up in Florida, I can assure you, this is normal for the age of the home; it was a complete non-issue. The train is nearby and does run (and sound the horn) at all hours. Another non-issue. Personally, I found the sound soothing and reminiscent of my carefree Florida childhood ... we lived along the FEC Railroad tracks 4 hours south of here. All in all ... this home, the owners and the host all deserve our gracious thank yous for a wonderful stay.

Mermaid Cottage - St. Augustine
5/5 stars
The Mermaid Cottage was delightful to stay in. It was definitely a home away from home in an extremely quiet neighborhood. We were just down the street from historic St. Augustine and minutes from the beautiful beaches. The house was clean, beds were comfortable (better than some hotels I've stayed in) and we had no issues during our stay. Although our stay was short as we were in town only to conduct a couple of college tours, it was extremely pleasant. I will definitely consider this home for a family vacation in the future.
