Annual family beach vacation, 4 couples and 3 children. Mermaid Cove was a perfect fit for us. Clean, comfortable and great location. The golf cart was a big plus! We had never been to PSJ and were very pleased with the Windmark Beach Community. The beaches were great. We loved the Mill Mercantile, Bruno’s Pizza and the pool. The kitchen at Mermaid Cove served us well as we all like to cook. The two restaurants we chose turned out to be bad choices. We definitely do not recommend Crazy Fish or Southern Patio….the latter was the absolute worst. The neighborhood is quiet, ride bikes a lot, nice golf cart/bike trail. We enjoyed a beach bonfire provided by Light Up the Night; complete with s’mores makings, tiki lights, illuminated toys fir the children. We highly recommend Light Up the Night. Overall, Mermaid Cove made for a fabulous vacation. We will be back. Owners were receptive and responsive when needed.

We had a great time at Mermaid Cove. The house is as pictured, plenty of room for everyone. It says 4 bedrooms, but it is really 5 with the bonus room. Living spaces are large and open. Beds are comfortable. We had everything we needed. The golf cart was a huge plus to minimize sand in the car. We also rode bikes or walked to the beach when we weren’t loaded down with umbrellas and chairs. Restaurants, stores and the pool are within walking/cart riding distance. WindMark had live music every weekend night. It’s a cute, quiet little neighborhood. I felt safe walking back to the house from the beach alone after dark. We had parking space for more than 3 cars. We will definitely be back.
This was the best vacation our family has had to date! The property was truly a home-away-from-home. The thoughtfulness that went into every detail was remarkable. So much of what we needed was provided that we could have packed much lighter! There were beach towels, beach toys, beach chairs, beach umbrella, a golf cart to get to the beach, kayaks with life vests to ride in the bay, bicycles, etc!! This home is located in the cutest little neighborhood which is like its own little town. The golf cart was such a luxury which enabled us to keep our personal vehicle free from sand. We were also able to use it to drive to "the other side of the neighborhood" where we could stop for coffee on the way to the beach or eat dinner at night before heading back to the house. Not a single member of our family was ready to leave; our only regret is that we didn't book a longer stay. We love Mermaid Cove!

My family and I had a wonderful time at Mermaid’s Cove. The house is great, we had plenty of room for the 10 of us. The house has a great location. We could and did go to the beach daily, either by walking ( easy walk) or using the golf cart ( great to have, ). The house had lots of extras, the bikes, the paddle boards, and chairs. The house had everything we needed and more. All too often there is not enough dishes but we had plenty. The decor is wonderful, the couches were comfy. I highly recommend Mermaid’s Cove. Thanks for a wonderful beach week!
Wow! We had an amazing 3-night stay. Perfect get-away destination for so many reasons:
Charming neighborhood tucked away from the hustle and bustle. Perfect place to relax and rejuvenate.
I covet how immaculate this home is. Beautifully decorated for a homey ambience. The floor plan is perfect for family get-together. All 4 bedrooms are gorgeous, pleasantly comfortable and cozy.
3. Amenities and add-ons
There’s a boardwalk access to the beach, biking lanes, restaurants, community pool and a Christian church within the community/neighborhood.
Golf cart, bicycles, kayaks, floater boards and swim ring/water donut are available for use.
4. Nature’s bonuses
Perfect place to watch the sunset by the beach.
Towering pine trees serves as hedges along the main road and oaks trees provide shades along walkways.
Their kindness and being so hospitable is undeniable. We are so grateful for how awesome they are.
I highly recommend and would definitely come back to remake the beautiful memories we had.
