Other things to note

In the living room, a common area, there is a very comfy sofa/daybed (pictured) that has a pop-up trundle. This lends potential for a THIRD or FOURTH person in your group for and additional fee of $10/person/night. I am present as much as necessary or as little as required for any assistance needed. I am dedicated to ensuring that you have a good time and enjoy your stay! Enjoy a cup of coffee or a refreshing drink on the lanai while watching bikers and joggers go by on the Withlacoochee State Trail. Listen to steel drum music or any music you prefer from the sound system on the lanai.

Sue is so sweet and her place was perfect! She was very accommodating, her place was very beachy, clean, and she even had clean towels, toiletries, and offered use of her Keurig coffee machine. This place has a pool which is hard to find, the bed was very comfortable and sheets were soft and clean. She lives right next to K. P. Hole and Rainbow River, which gave us quick access to our PADI dive spot! Stay here!!! It's worth it and Sue is awesome!

Sue is a gracious host and her place is very comfortable. House is a split design so the guest area is private nice comfy bed, lots of pillows, clean and comfy bathroom that you can soak in or take a shower. The swimming pool, although I did not take a dip, looked beautiful kept clean like the rest of the home. Sue knows the area well so can direct you to what you need. I brought food to cook there is a fridge which can hold some goods. Sue offers coffee in the morning. I would recommend the Mermaids Inn to anyone that likes a homey home away from home ! Tim.

My fiance and I stayed at the Mermaid Inn during a weekend trip to Rainbow River. Sue's place is very conveniently located and she is a great host. We had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend the Mermaid to anyone staying in the area.

This was our first airbnb experience and it was wonderful! Sue's home is beautiful, clean, and very convenient to dining and to Rainbow Springs State Park. Sue was a gracious and friendly host, but we had plenty of privacy when needed. Sue was helpful with suggestions for restaurants. Everything was comfortable and we hope to go back again.
