12863 Dauphin Island Parkway Coden, AL 36258 United States

Mermaid Hideaway is an adorable bay-front cottage on the western shore of Mobile Bay, just perfect for your winter getaway or a quiet retreat. It has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths and will comfortably sleep six. Nestled in the trees with a nice grassy yard that goes down to the beach, it is a wonderful place to relax, read or even start that novel you been promising to write. There is a nice fenced area so bring your fur baby along. The master bedroom features a king bed, flat screen TV and a private bath. The second bedroom has a queen bed and there is also a queen sleeper sofa in the charming great-room. The adjoining kitchen has an island for extra storage. A large flat screen TV provides indoor entertainment with Netflix included and large windows surround you with excellent views of the bay. Comfy furniture on the shady screened porch invites you to sit and watch the cruise ship sail by. Or grill some fresh seafood for dinner. You might even experience one of the famous Mobile Bay Jubilees! A Jubilee is a natural phenomenon that occurs sporadically only on the shores of Mobile Bay. During a jubilee, crab and shrimp, as well as flounder, eels, and other fish will leave the deep water and swarm in large numbers in the shallow water near the shore, making catching them a breeze! But you probably won’t see a Mermaid – they're good at hiding!

    Katherine B from Dyer, Tennessee recommends this vacation rental

    My husband and I live extremely busy lives and have little downtime. I am a teacher; he is a veterinarian. Our students and clients take up a lot of our time, so we planned a quiet week and chose this cottage for the beautiful views and the screened back porch. The cottage did not disappoint. The best thing about it was the screened porch. We sat out there many afternoons and watched the variety of boats pass through the bay. The wildlife was awesome as well - pelicans, squirrels, butterflies, and terns all gave us a show. The cottage itself was amazing! The air conditioning was outstanding and we were nice and cool even during the hottest of days. The kitchen was really efficiently put together and the Keurig coffeemaker was a definite plus. The owners here thought of absolutely everything one would need or want in a quiet getaway. This stay was one of the best experiences, as we got to enjoy the solitude of the cottage, but be a short fifteen minute drive from West End Beach. This was exactly what we were hoping for and we had a vacation to remember. Thank you owners and Island Resort Management for a lovely stay with lovely accommodations.

    Valerie C from Dauphin Island, AL recommends this vacation rental

    The days blened into one another, it was so very peaceful and relaxing. We read books, sat on the lawn perched over the wide expanse of Mobile Bay, watched big TVs with all the channels and DVR so we didnt miss our programs if we went out. We grilled local fish, went to the Pelican Reef Restaurant for dinner one night, shopped at the local Greer’s Market for groceries, went to Dauphin Island, but mostly relaxed. Everything in this renovated cottage was done with care and quality, and tasefully decorated. It was a home away from home, but with a spectacular view of the water and boats going by. Amenities were great. You can even play croquet on the huge lawn. A forested driveway hidden from everything, but within 10-15 minutes of shopping or activities on the Island. Quiet, peaceful and comfortable. Thank you!
