The Minty Mermaid

300+ft of Private Beachfront, Rooftop Deck, Swimming Pool, Kayak & Paddleboards

5.0 out of 5 stars (based on 4 reviews)

Looking for the perfect estate to host an exclusive beach wedding? The Minty Mermaid is undoubtedly the most unique, serene, and picture-perfect property you will ever come across. Located in an environmentally protected sanctuary, this 4 bedroom 4 bath authentic Keys Villa is unlike any other home you will ever see. Watch baby sea turtles hatch on the beach in your backyard during late summer, or catch a glimpse of the world famous Key Deer roaming throughout the salt ponds. Did you know Big Pine Key is the only place in the world these tiny deer are found?

If you’re looking for an “off the grid” home with enough amenities to make you want to stay forever, you’ve come to the right place. Pour yourself a drink at the poolside tiki hut, while you indulge in the salty island breeze blowing through your hair. At sunset, take a long walk on your very own private beach or paddle board by the mangroves, along the shoreline, while bird watching any of the 286 species that exist in the Florida Keys.

When the hot Florida sun has worn your body down, cool off in the crystal clear blue water of your private swimming pool (heating optional), while relishing in the sheer beauty of the euphoric open ocean. Take in the endless seas of blue and green from each balcony of the home, as you make your way to the rooftop to spy on the undisturbed Florida Key’s ecosystem. From a bird’s eye view, stare deep into the Atlantic Ocean while sun bathing on the top deck of this stand alone, 3 story, Keys mansion. You’ve never felt this free.

Entering the home is like entering another world. Beautifully decorated and recently remodeled, experience more and more originality with each step you take. Whether you’re a family on vacation or an artist looking for inspiration, this home will speak to you with a captivating poetic whisper. Three of the four bedrooms come equipped with en-suite baths, and each bedroom boasts a balcony with peaceful oceanic scenery. You will find plenty of space to entertain in the living room while your meal is prepared in the full chef’s kitchen. (We can also recommend private caterers to handle your wedding or even just a special private dinner for you and your loved ones to enjoy). Savor your food at any of the outdoor dining tables located on the 2nd floor balcony or by the pool overlooking the private beach. You’ve made it to paradise. The only question you’ll ask yourself now is, “Why Leave”?

The location and setting of this property are entirely unique in BPK. Being here truly feels as if one is on a private island. We sat on the comfortable balcony every day to drink in the beauty of the very diverse and active bird life. Best of all, Bert, the manager, is responsive and immediately helps with any questions.
