My wife and I stayed 6 nights at The Nutty Mermaid in April 2018. The house has a great layout to support 1-3 couples. The house is spacious and well equipped for cooking your own meals. It also comes with a lot of water toys and bicycles. I used the stand up paddle board and the two man kayak almost everyday. There are also two brand new one man kayaks with very nice backrests and a pretty worn Sunfish sailboat. The last couple of days we used some of the floaty chairs and blow up pool rafts to just float around behind the house. The beach is right behind the house, about 50 steps to crystal clear, relatively warm water. From the beach and living room we watched sea turtles swim past regularly. We also had a large stingray and a 3 foot nurse shark swim right the house. About 400 yards down the beach is a spot where we saw an eagle ray and at least a dozen sea turtles every time you paddled down there.
We flew into Marsh Harbour and rented a car with SG Rentals. The house is in a pretty remote neighborhood about 2/3rds the way from Marsh Harbour to Treasure Cay so you’ll need a car and you’ll want to pick up provisions in Marsh Harbour before heading to the house. Be sure to pick up or bring your own shower soap and shampoo as the owner doesn’t provide any. Also pick up some TP as she only provides a couple of rolls.
Michelle, the owner was great to work with.
The view from The Nutty Mermaid is spectacular - crystal clear water that almost glows with a green- blue tint depending on the angle of the sun. There are several small rocky islands to snorkel or paddle around in the water behind the house. A few of the neighbors occasionally walk by on the beach, but it feels very private and secluded there. I would recommend the Nutty Mermaid to my friends and family.

“Fantastic, yet private location”
Reviewed 21 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

We found a perfect spot in Abaco, quiet and a mile Long Beach to ourselves. Well appointed Home and grounds. Sea turtles, lobster and snapper right out your door. The owner was fantastic at communicating and orientating us to the home and the island. Went sightseeing and bottom fishing with Captain Thomas Sawyer. Pete’s Pub and Grill in beautiful Little Harbor is a must! Will definitely be coming back!

“Sublime”
Reviewed 19 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We've rented vacation homes in the Bahamas multiple times and this was by far the best experience we had. Michelle is incredibly responsive and helpful and that set the tone for the whole experience. The beach and water is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the sun and sand. It was the best beach I've been to for my 4 year old. She could play in the water while I sat on the beach, because the water was so calm, clear, and shallow near the shore that I had no worries. But a short distance away, you'll find some awesome snorkeling and the little islands near the property were fun to swim or kayak to. It made it feel like an adventure. We had a great time looking for seashells and even found a few sand dollars. The house is equipped with everything you need to enjoy both the beach and the water.

The house was also perfect for our group. It's rare to find bedroooms with all King size beds and they were comfortable -- another rarity! The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you might need. One small issue we had in the house was immediately remedied by the caretaker, who was there in minutes, despite the raging rainstorm we were experiencing.

We spent more time at the house than anywhere else. But it was nice to have Treasure Cay right up the street. We spent some time at Coco's and their amazing beach. The best beach we found as far as sheer beauty and nice waves was on Guana Cay, just a short ferry ride from Marsh Harbor. It's in front of Nipper's, which was a fun place, but a bit crowded for us (because were were there on New Year's Eve). We also spent a little time at Snappas and elsewhere in Marsh Harbor. Every place we visited had a very friendly atmosphere and we even spotted a few celebrities.

We can't wait to visit the Nutty Mermaid again!

Excellent ! So happy you had a great time!! I have Great caretakers that will be there if anything happens- the important part is telling them so they can help and make it a great stay They told me about the storm that blew water in the french doors upstairs and then put the shutters up to stop the water from coming in- must have been a strong strong wind- it has been such a harsh winter up here - I wish I was there in Abaco and having the 70s instead of the teens.
Would love to have your family and you
back!

“Perfect Beachfront House in Bahamas”
Reviewed 21 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

We found the Nutty Mermaid in our search for a Honeymoon destination it was more than we expected. First, the house is clean and well supplied/equipped. Beach was beautiful, even more so than depicted on website pictures. Snorkeling, fishing, kayaking (yes, they come with the house), and relaxation. Beach walking, shells, and more green sea turtles than I would have believed. Short drive to restaurants and shopping... Leisure Lee was quite and very private. Overall, could not have been a better experience.... Winner!!!!!!
