Even better than expected

  • 5 of 5

Property is exactly as described. It is clean, comfortable, well laid out and very well located. Pools are a must with younger kids and the pool here was better than I thought it would be. Everything plus is provided unlike many rental properties. You really just need clothes and beach towels.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Mermaid Lagoon! The pool is a great feature, especially after a long day on the beach! We hope you will be back to beautiful Holden Beach soon! :)

Another Great Year!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Mermaid Lagoon and we will be back. Great house, clean, very well stocked when we arrived so we didn't have to worry about paper products, hand soap, dish soap, etc when we arrived. Thanks to Dianna for being available as needed before and during our trip, very responsive owners. I would and have recommended this house to family and friends.

Perfect house for our family if 6 adults and 3 children

  • 5 of 5

Mermaid Lagoon is a beautiful well planned house. The kitchen is well stocked with the right pots,pans,dishes and spices. Loaded with extras you don't expect from a rental house. Only thing missing was aluminum foil! I'm sure the last renters used it all.We really appreciated the towels, hand soap, toilet tissue and paper towels. Also we enjoyed the bicycles and beach cart. We only missed the beach umbrella that was there last year.

Owner's Response: So happy to have you all back again at Mermaid! Yes - foil goes surprisingly fast on vacation! :) Even when our family goes to Mermaid, we are happy to see the different spices, containers, maybe foil, even books that renters leave for the next guest. We try to add new things each year, or remove things that are broken or not used much. Sounds like an umbrella may be called for - thanks for the heads up and we hope to see you all again next year. :)

Holden Beach Beauty

  • 5 of 5

I cannot begin to thank the David's for sharing their beautiful home with our family! We had ages 63-4 in our party and there is something for everyone. This home is very well stocked, decorated with style, and is super convenient for anything and everything you could want in Holden Beach! The pool is always a big hit but there is so much to discover here! Thank you again and we can't wait to return!!

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great week! Even after all the years we've been at Holden Beach, we are still discovering new things, too! :) We look forward to your return visit!

Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

When looking for the perfect vacation spot, we looked for 3 different things; a beautiful beach, a cozy home with a pool and a quiet beach town with modern conveniences. Not asking too much, right? It seems almost impossible to find the perfect blend of everything you want during your one week of freedom, but Mermaid Lagoon provided all of this and more. We loved our home that comfortably accommodated 3 different families, a total of 9 different people, and enjoyed all the island had to offer.

Mermaid Lagoon is a close walk to the beach, Sunset Slush (the most amazing Italian Ice ever), the summer concerts, and the turtle talks. We had 3 generations vacationing with us and everyone found something to enjoy.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your family time at Mermaid Lagoon and Holden Beach. We love the location, too! There are so many places that we (and our children) can walk to - beach, music, food...Holden Beach has it all! We hope you come back to visit us again. :)

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our first experience at Holden beach. It's was the quietest beach we've been on, not crowded and the pool at the mermaid lagoon was the best to come back to after beach time.

A very honest review would be stating the downstairs bed wasn't very comfortable for us. We were very, very pleased overall and would come back!

Thank you for a great stay!
