The Mermaids House:
The Mermaids 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 Mermaids House offers amazing views of the abundant birdlife that inhabit 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 Mermaids 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 Mermaids House is the perfect setting to enjoy some world famous oysters, have a drink, and look out across the bay as the sun sets.

This was a perfect place to unwind and relax – just what we needed! Had a stormy weekend - but it was cozy in here! Thanks for providing such a beautiful, peaceful get-away.
We have stayed at the Mermaids House 7 times in the past 8 years and absolutely love it. It is the perfect getaway. Very comfortable, very elegantly appointed but with a very cozy warm feel. The kitchen setup is easy to use and we always cook when we are there.
The view is gorgeous, sitting on the deck is so peaceful. Being out over the water is the best. We love it every time regardless of the weather or time of year.
The owner is very helpful and gracious. We plan to continue to visit there at least once a year.
My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at The Mermaid House in March 2012. After spending a week in St Helena we wanted to end our vacation in a special place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We were SO happy we chose The Mermaid House. The owners were wonderful as we contacted them before our arrival andthey had a fishing pole ready for my husband to use upon arrival! The house is more than we imagined, wonderful decor- unbelievable views - you are right on the water! We found something new each of the 3 days we were there. The weather was a bit cool but did not stop us from our daily hot tub/glass of wine on the deck. We enjoyed dinner (fresh oysters bought right down the road) at the dining room table nightly overlooking the water. We took a drive to the Pt Reyes National Seashore and enjoyed stopping in Tomales Bay. Very quite area, just what we were looking for. Looking forward to making this a yearly stop!
Whether you are seeking a getaway for respite and relaxation or outdoor adventure, the Mermaid House offers the ideal atmosphere with an absolutely stunning view and positively serene location. The decor of the home is uniquely designed and provides the image of being on a ship with all the spacious comforts of a cozy home. The nautical theme creates a feeling of being lured away to a far away destination. Awakening in the morning to the rising sun and seascape view, was truly delightful. The privacy of the deck offers an opportunity to experience solitude, soak up the sunshine, and spot sea life swimming in the bay. The hot tub offers a romantic escape underneath the star lit sky. This accommodation is a perfect destination for a special celebration with friends, romance or a rekindling of the soul’s body and spirit. I look forward to returning again sometime, as the home hosts insured our visit was enjoyable and comfortable. Thank you for helping to make my birthday truly memorable.
