“Excellent location and house”

There is so much to say about this rental. From the great rentor Michelle to the house on the Great Abaco Sea. The owner is very helpful and responsive. Before we got there we had so much good information from her about places to eat and rent cars or boats and places to see whether it's diving or boating or driving. The house sits on the ocean, east side of Great Abaco between Marsh Harbor and Treasure Cay. Great middle of two location. The house is part of a large development but the development is all "behind" you and you don't see any other places unless you look out the front of the house, which you won't do because the back is where you will spend your time. All bedrooms have great views of the beach and ocean. Small islands off the beach are good to snorkel and see some of the excellent colorful fish and find some lobster if you wish. The house itself is furnished very nicely in an "island" feeling. There are some nice extras in the house such as a kayak, sunfish and paddle board. There are also a whole "boatload" of snorkel masks and fins. I counted at least 10 masks. Lots of stuff is left by others that stay there and decided to leave things behind instead of traveling with them I guess.

Now just a couple words about a car rental we made and a boat rental. We rented a car from Cornish car rental. They must get their cars from the junk yard for cheep. Just a warning.. Seaside boat rental on Elbow Cay was ok. They will pick you up in Marsh Harbor to deliver the boat, if they remember.... Right., I called them the afternoon before we were to pick up the boat to confirm and the next day they did not show up until I called again at the dock to remind them. The boat was nice though, an Albury Brothers 20 foot..

Oh, air travel. Silver Air is horrible. If you can find an alternate way to get there do it. You will avoid a lot of stress. We lost a day of vacation because of them.

A word of advice. if you go out boating take a GPS with you to mark spots you may find. Locating anything more than once if you find them is like a needle in a hay stack. The Abaco Sea is bigger than you think. Also, if I had it to do again I'd rent a 23 foot or larger boat. We used the mooring off the front of the house and it worked just fine. You will just have to wade out there to get in the boat.

There is much more to say about the stay and all of it is excellent. I'd stay there again if I went to Great Abaco. Michelle, the owner, is wonderful to deal with and the house is great. We will be there again.

“Little piece of Heaven in the Abacos”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

This was the perfect getaway for our family. The Nutty Mermaid is a little piece of heaven and we were blessed to get to enjoy it. The house is loaded with everything you need and the pictures don't do it justice. We loved snorkeling around the island, swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding and walking on the beautiful beach. We visited the blue hole and our kids thought it was an amazing place. We loved Treasure Cay's beach as well and JIC boat rentals took great care of us in providing a boat for our needs. (Go to pizza night there on Thursday at the marina!) We enjoyed BBQ night at "The Burner" and Chris entertained us. Make sure to visit the Pineapple Bar on Green Turtle Cay, excellent conch! Also, feed the sharks and stingrays at Manjack Cay. We loved all our excursions to the other islands, but nothing better than returning to the Nutty Mermaid for dinner and beach time in the afternoons. Oh and the sunrise is beautiful too! Michelle has thought of everything you could need while staying in her beautiful home. Thank you for a great vacation!!

“Beyond beautiful and relaxing at the Nutty Mermaid”

people found this review helpful

The Nutty Mermaid is a great place to travel to with spouse/partner, friends and family. How can you not love waking up to the beach as your backyard every morning!! The house is very accommodating and spacious!! There is so much to do whether you want to just hang out on the beach and relax or go kayaking, snorkeling, and fishing. The location is great it's only a short car ride for restaurants/bars, site-seeing, exploring and shopping!
