    About this property

    Mermaid's House - Tomales Bay Waterfront, Point Reyes, Marshall

    There are two suites at The Mermaid's House, separated by a 20-foot entryway. Each suite has its own private deck and private hot tub. This is the Vrbo page for the Crew Quarters at The Mermaid's House. For the Vrbo page for the Admiral's Quarters at The Mermaid's House, visit Vrbo 118725. The Mermaid's House: The Mermaid's House is the perfect West Marin getaway. Located on the waterfront of pristine Tomales Bay, it is an ideal spot to relax and unwind. The house is literally built out over the water, so there is nothing between you and the picturesque Point Reyes National Seashore as you gaze out through the giant glass windows. The Mermaid's House offers amazing views of the abundant birdlife that inhabits Tomales Bay and it is not uncommon to spot a seal or two swimming by to say, "hello." The house, nautically themed, creates the illusion that you are traveling aboard a lavish ship, without the seasickness of course. The spacious interior of the house has an air of tasteful class while maintaining a cozy rustic feel. Complete with a grassy front yard, large deck with a hot tub, and its own pier, the Mermaid's House is also well equipped for outdoor living. Whether you spend your time in West Marin hiking in the park, kayaking on the bay, or just relaxing, the Mermaid's House is the perfect setting to enjoy some world famous oysters, have a drink, and look out across the bay as the sun sets. Amenities: Jacuzzi/jet outdoor spa, gas log fireplace, Wi-Fi (wireless internet), phone (free long distance within the continental US), satellite flat screen TV with built in DVD player, stereo/CD player, fully equipped kitchen, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, barbecue, deck tables and chairs, teakwood "steamer" reclining deck chairs. *(No smoking. Sorry, no young children: due to the location of the house over the water. No pets: due to the sensitive nature of the environment.) **(Sorry, we cannot accommodate large gatherings or parties.) Activities: Hiking, bird watching, horseback riding, hanging out on the beach, kayaking, biking, scenic driving, wine tasting, fishing, shopping, restaurants, sightseeing, whale watching, swimming, boating (rentals at dillon beach), sailing, surfing, windsurfing, tide-pooling, wildlife viewing, golfing (Bodega Bay or San Geronimo).

    5/5 Excellent

      Really great location, nice fun place and access to outside water.

      Creatively built and decorated. Perfect for 2 people (that can climb some pretty steep stairs up to the bedroom - stairs well built and excellent railings). The deck with hot tub was amazing along with the lounge chairs to enjoy the outside. Everything in good shape. Kitchen did the trick but not a place if you are planning on doing fancy cooking! We loved our time there.

      5/5 Excellent

        Happy in Marshall

        We were very impressed by the Mermaid Crew Quarters in Marshall. Lots of lights, outlets etc. and very cozy and clean. The deck and view of Tomales Bay was wonderful and so relaxing and great Nick's Cove restaurant just down the road. Had to watch our heads in the loft bed area but worth it. Thank you owners!

        5/5 Excellent

          Peaceful and relaxing

          Lovely location. Quiet and serene. And the communication with Fred was excellent.

          5/5 Excellent

            Lovely space on Tomales Bay

            This is a wonderful place. Just be aware that the stairs to the loft are steep. If that's not an issue for you, than this is a five star place!

            5/5 Excellent
