I recently had the pleasure of staying 4 nights at Mermaid's Secret with my two girlfriends to celebrate my 30th birthday and we had an AMAZING time. The grounds are phenomenally beautiful, Tim and Sam are so lovely and helpful, and the cottages are truly fantastic! We stayed in the Calypso cottage and we found it to be super clean and very comfortable.
In spite of an unusual amount of rain, we truly had a lovely time and didn't let the rain stop us from swimming, hiking, relaxing and enjoying the fantastic locale that we were in. We got to spend some time in the Mermaid's pool which was very refreshing, Sam showed us a lovely hike to "Secret Falls" which was so much fun and oh so gorgeous, and Tim even took us to Rosalie Bay one evening where we had the rare experience of seeing a beautiful leatherback turtle nesting on the beach. It was incredible!
To make the visit even more special, as it was my birthday, Sam surreptitiously worked with my girlfriends to bake me an adorable butterfly shaped birthday cake and surprised me with it after a long day of fantastic hiking. I could not have asked for a better place to spend my birthday, Mermaid's Secret is truly an amazing place and I hope that I will have the chance to visit again.
