    About this property

    Mermaid's House - Tomales Bayfront, 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 Admiral's Quarters at The Mermaid's House. For the VRBO page for the Crew Quarters at The Mermaid's House, visit Vrbo 836945. 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), 32" Sharp flat screen satellite TV, stereo/CD player, fully equipped kitchen, refrigerator, dishwasher, 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).

        Great Weekend Away From Stress

        This rental is exactly as seen in the photos. It is wonderfully nautical. The kitchen has everything you need with the added bonus of spices already there. The bedroom is cozy and very comfortable. Loved the Jacuzzi on the deck. We had a wonderful time and would definitely come back again to stay. Check in and check out was as easy as can be. I met the owner and he was so nice!

        4/5 Good

        • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

        It would have helped to have info on food shopping and nearby restaurants.

          Amazingly wonderful

          I truly loved this property and its location. I would buy this place if I could. It's beautifully designed, very well stocked, so close to The Marshall Store you can walk (I had oysters two days in a row) and it was so relaxing to be right on (over) the water. I seriously cannot rave about this place enough. Definitely a top rental for me and I used VRBO a lot. I will be back! Hopefully every single year!!!

            Stay in Admiral's Quarters

            Our experience exceeded our expectations. This is a great weekend getaway location. It's quiet, well appointed, and close to all there is to see and do in West Marin. We will definitely book the Admiral's Quarters again.
