2 Full baths
On Kauai's North Shore, this non-smoking, vintage all redwood classic "beach house" was designed by world class yacht racer and sailing enthusiast Peggy Slater. Keeping true to Peggy's inspirations, the Mermaid House emerces its guests in a uniquely Hawaiian experience featuring Hawaiian and nautical decor.
A 3 bedroom, 2 bath standalone home, the Mermaid House is located on a side road in a quiet and well-maintained neighborhood. From within, banks of sliding windows open in multiple combinations to take advantage of the tropical breezes and sounds of the Pacific. The house includes all the necessary amenities, including ceiling fans in each room, a well-equipped kitchen with gas range, HD television, stereo, linens and towels. A large lanai provides guests with opportunities for outdoor dining or sunbathing.
A key feature of the location its proximity to the the pristine golden sand beach across the road - a two minute walk from the Mermaid House's front door. The beach is reef-protected and great for swimming, snorkeling or just catching the rays. Sunsets on the beach are truly exceptional and a "must see" for any visitor, with Bali Hai and the Ne Pali coast taking center stage in westward gazes.

“Authentic Kauai beach house”
The Mermaid House is wonderful, relaxing vacation getaway, just 200 steps from a pristine sandy beach. It is a well-maintained, tastefully furnished mid-20th-century bungalow, built by a woman-sailor who appreciated the distinctive Kauaian style. We have stayed there a number of times, and the house has always been immaculate, with near-new linens, and well-equipped galley kitchen. Jane, the owner, has always been responsive and most helpful.
“the real Hawaiian experience”
I have stayed at Mermaid House with my family for extended periods many times over the last ten years. When we get there, it is always like returning home. The ambiance of this historical cottage is warm and inviting, like staying at the home of a friend. The house is very roomy and comfortable and decorated with many pieces of hawaiian art and crafts. If you seek a resort style environment, this is not the place for you, but if like us, you seek the comfort and quiet of a private home with real Hawaiian style, and so close to the beach you may never put your shoes on, Mermaid House is it! We have recommended Mermaid House to several friends who have stayed there, and all have thoroughly enjoyed their stay. We are already booked for next year and can't wait to get back.
“Paradise in magical Kauai...”
A dear friend and I are still talking about our incredible extended stay at the very well equipped Mermaid House - a month of bliss in true Kauai Bali Hai style - & we would return in a heartbeat! The owner Jane, was such a pleasure to deal with in planning our extended stay, so helpful with her added touches to the home, making our booking experience a joy. The Mermaid House with it's unique and beautiful seascape style throughout, its woodwork interior and vaulted ceilings is situated in the quiet lovely area of Ha'ena - a very short walk to stunningly beautiful beaches...all around (with the Bali Hai [Makana Mountain] backdrop, & Tunnels Beach for unbelievable snorkling. Morning beach walks & early evenings we saw green sea turtles and a few Monk seals, & chatted with the few people seen on the quiet beach - felt like our own beach some days! Loved waking up to lush tropical greenery & the beautiful birdsongs, enjoying the Lanai, hearing & seeing the roosters/hens walking the grounds, seeing the Geckos and cooking wonderful local seafood dinners -it felt like "home" ~S. Evidence everywhere of Janes' special touches of Kauai living throughout this dreamy home & abundant local reading material, made our stay both magical and unforgettable. Would highly recommend going to see the wonder of Limahuli Botanical Gardens nearby, surrounded by Bali Hai (Makana Mountain), and the end of the road Napali Coast trail and Ke'e Beach...and Tunnels Beach & also a tour of the Na aina Kai Botanical Gardens, a bit further away past Princeville. It's a short 15 minute drive into the beautiful river valley town of Hanalei,beautiful with winding roads and one lane bridges...where we shopped for groceries & local seafood (Dolphins Restaurant and fresh fish take out), the Organic Market, restaurants and galleries & local shaved ice. The local Farmers Markets - amazing. We'll definitely come back to this magic! "Mahalo nui Jane" from your new found friends M&M;, "A hui hou" ~S
“Head to toe enjoyment-paradise!”
The Mermaid House is not only a comfortable and beautiful place to live (for however long?) but the accommodations are clean and quite beautiful , the gardens are inviting and wonderful and the proximity of the beach makes this a wonderful place to visit. I want to return many times,
