Now that travel is reopening again, our minds are drifting off to all the dreamy locations that are just a plane ride away.
For those who fancy themselves mermaids in a former life, there's an stunning Airbnb nestled between vineyards and farms in California, with your name on it.
The homestay comes complete with five king and queen size bedrooms, gorgeous communal kitchen and living areas, an arcade, volleyball court and the pièce de résistance: a fantasy-like lagoon fit for mermaids.
The lagoon comes surrounded by boulders, palm trees and tiki torches for late night swims and even features a floating bar and jacuzzi attached to the main pool.
The home - aptly called The Mermaid - is based in private grounds in Paso Robles in the sunshine state. According to the ad, it's only a mile from the famous Firestone brewery, five minutes from all the main wineries in Paso Robles, and just a short ride to the infamous Vineyard Drive. So ideal for wine lovers, then...
While there's tons to do in the local historic Paso Robles downtown area, the owners warn the home is packed with so many exciting feature you may never leave.
"Our enormous backyard includes a sand volleyball court, a shuffleboard, bocce ball, horseshoes, an outdoor dining area, lounge chairs, and a waterfall. Fire torches are also placed around the pool for your use," says AvantStay, who are hosting.
"Our home includes an oversized main dining table, a bar area, soft water, radiant floor heating (for cozy warm toes!), arcade games (DDR, air hockey, Golden Tee), two smart TVs, and a fish tank. Not just any fish tank but one created by the company behind HGTV's hit show Tanked!
"If guests are lucky, they may get the chance to watch the fish tank get cleaned. A professional cleaner is required to jump directly into the large fish tank via scuba suit. That's something you don't see every day!"
A true mermaids dream...
While that all sound great, we imagine we'll be spending most of our time at the swim-up bar sipping on refreshing cocktails.
Dates for The Mermaid are getting booked up fast, so gather your ladies and book your stay soon.
It's worth noting, however, that travel to the US is still subject to entry restrictions and you'll have to self isolate for up to 14 days after arrival and return.
TBH, there are worse places to get stuck...
