Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Excellent value for money
Our third stay at Freshwater East but 1st in Mermaid. Fantastic location, very close to the beach and a great vase for exploring the local area. The owners were very responsive and really helpful. Well equipped, really clean chalet. Fantastic spot for wildlife too.

I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and found Mermaid to be clean and well equipped. The opportunity to view wildlife at the back of the chalet in the woodland is a plus which most chalets at Trewent Park do not offer. .

Thank you for your comments. We have had plenty of rain in recent times and have a plastic mat for muddy footwear just inside the front door. I will consider the suggestion of an outdoor storage box. Your review shows that a mid winter visit to Pembrokeshire can be enjoyable given suitable accommodation such as Mermaid..

A perfect place for a perfect holiday
Mermaid Beach home is a perfect place to have a great holiday. It is ideally located, only a five-minute walk from the beach. The house is so comfortable with everything you could ask for whilst on holiday. Especially the kitchen is extraordinarily well equipped, the beds are all super comfy and the allocated parking space is almost directly in front of the door. You can tell how much passion and attention to detail the hosts have put into this place – little mermaids decorating all rooms and lots of additional beach accessories that come in handy. Peter and Ian are fantastic hosts, always available and extremely helpful with the booking. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mermaid and would absolutely recommend it to our friends.

Thank you so much for your kind review. Ian and I hope that the collection of mermaids is fun to discover and popular with children. We try to provide all the kitchen equipment that anyone could need when on holiday although the on site cafe/restaurant (Jacks) provides excellent meals. I hope you are able to return one day. Peter

Peaceful and close to the sea
Clean, quiet and an excellent base for a week by the sea. We have stayed in two other Trewent Park chalets, and this was the best. Beautiful setting with woodland behind. Very helpful owners

Thank you for your review. I am pleased that you mention the woodland behind the house as this is a feature which most of the homes at Trewent Park are not able to offer and helps ensure guests at Mermaid Beach Home enjoy a very tranquil setting.

Thanks for your feedback. Yes, Mermaid is only a short walk to a beautiful sandy beach. We aim to provide excellent value and to keep prices as low as possible we ask guests to bring their bedding (duvet covers/ sheets/pillow cases) and towels with them. We hope this does not prove to a problem for our guests virtually all of whom arrive by car.
