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.

Interaction with guests
Once guests confirm their booking intentions, I 'hold' the dates they have chosen for 4 days to give them time to confirm other aspects of their travel and forward about 1/2 of the booking. I immediately send via USPS a statement/receipt signed by me. I require the balance 45 days prior to arrival. Once all funds are received, I send, with the receipt, a map to the house as well as an information sheet detailing what they need to know for a smooth use of the house ( entry code, wifi info, trash disposal etc) Anywhere along the way I am happy to serve as a reference about the house, the northshore or the island of Kaua'i more broadly. Aloha nui, Jane

About the neighbourhood
On Kauai's North Shore in a quiet, well-maintained neighborhood. The Mermaid House is across the road from one of the most beautiful and secluded reef-protected beaches in the world. Approximately 0.5 miles down the road is Tunnels Beach - famous for snorkeling and great for kids. At the end of the main road (about 2 miles) is Ke'e Beach - the furthest point accessible via autombile on the North Shore; the beach usually has an on-duty lifeguard and is also great for kids and snorkeling. The entrance to the Kalalau Trail is also at Ke'e Beach - and hiking at least the first two (somewhat difficult) miles of the trail will reward you with views and memories that last a lifetime. Retrace your way across seven one-lane bridges back to quaint Hanalei town where you can grab a gourmet meal,...
