Response from Jekyll Island Property Sales & Management, INC.Thank you very much for your review of Austin Mermaid. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We aren't sure what could have caused the house to get hot at night during your stay. After reading your review, the heating/cooling system was checked and seemed to be functioning correctly. We hope to see you again on your next visit to Jekyll!
Response from Jekyll Island Property Sales & Management, INC.Dear James V., Thank you for your review of your recent stay at Austin Mermaid, we are delighted you enjoyed your time at this very popular vacation home. We apologize you found the cleaning wasn’t quite up to par but are pleased you noted the home to be neat and tidy. This summer, like many others in the service industry, we found ourselves in the position of doing more work with less staff. Thankfully it was only temporary, we’re confident that on your next visit to Austin Mermaid you will once again be posting 5 star reviews. Thank you again!
We had a wonderful week here. The house is so cute and comfortable and was extremely clean. The kitchen is stocked with pretty much everything you could possibly need. We rented a Red Bug for the week so having a garage where we could keep it charging was a bonus. And the pool!! Absolutely beautiful. We could hear the ocean at night while enjoying a fire in the fire pit.The house is an easy 2-5 minute walk from several beach crossovers. This north part of the island doesn't have much beach at high tide and they are doing erosion control, so we drove or biked just minutes down the road to other Jekyll beaches for long beach days. There's also lots of beach and pool toys, chairs, etc in the garage to use. Jekyll Realty was wonderful to work with and was extremely responsive when I called a couple of times asking where to find something. We loved it so much, we've already booked a week for next year!
Our only issue, and it had nothing to do with the house but should really be addressed by the rental company: on two different occasions service workers had to come to the home. One worker came for a scheduled check for the air conditioning and two came to check the pump for the pool. None were wearing masks! I can somewhat understand the pool workers not being masked, and we were able to distance communicate, but the air conditioning worker came in the home and understandably touched the thermostat and other surfaces. We disinfected after he left, but there was nothing we could do about him being unmasked save not to let him in.
We realize many people do not take recommended Covid guidelines seriously, but we do, especially considering our ages and underlying conditions. We’d love to be able to completely relax on vacation and believe as a professional courtesy service workers could wear masks for fifteen or twenty minutes! Might influence our decision to return.
Response from Jekyll Island Property Sales & Management, INC.Thank you for your kind words, the owners of Austin Mermaid are most interested in assuring that their guests have everything they could possibly want in a luxury accommodation. We understand you to say that the house is worthy of 5 stars but interaction with the servicemen caused the reduction to 4 stars. We are very sorry for that portion of your vacation experience and have been told by their superiors that these were isolated incidents and will not be repeated as long as restrictions remain in place. For future stays, please keep in mind that any routine maintenance can always be rescheduled to a more convenient time. Thank you again, we look forward to your return to Jekyll Island and the beautiful Austin Mermaid. - Jekyll Realty –

The only complaint that we have is the beds. They're horribly uncomfortable. Otherwise we would have given it 5 stars.
