Mermaid Cottage, a beachside 1938 Craftsman bungalow, has just been lovingly restored and updated for today's lifestyle. This lovely 3 bedroom, 2 bath home is a perfect vacation or weekend retreat for anyone desiring a quiet and private getaway.
The cottage features a very private pool with teak loungers, umbrella table, waterfall, stainless steel gas grill, and of course deluxe pool floats in an enclosed courtyard graced by swaying palms.
You can relax in the master bedroom as you listen to the trickling waterfall of the pool or lounge on the daybed in the keeping room with a good book.
Mermaid Cottage was inspired by a painting the owners fell in love with titled, The Mermaids, which hangs over the masonry wood-burning fireplace in the living room. The owners have a passion for antique rattan and the living room features a unique Heyward Wakefield design. Designer fabrics have been used throughout the home to create a tropical Key West atmosphere. The kitchen features blue quartz countertops and all new Kitchenaid stainless appliances (including an ice machine). Cooks will love to try out some traditional Florida dishes from the cookbook collection. Guests will also enjoy reading books from the library and relaxing in the adirondack chairs on the front porch.Go to http://www.mermaidcottage.net for more details, rates and availability.
