We stayed in the Mermaid's Liar after a 9 day backcountry trip- with its stellar view, beautiful bath and the warm welcome and gracious hospitality of owners- it was a wonderful place to transition to re-entry. Convenient to the Kodiak downtown hub- we were carless but found it was an easy walk from staying somewhere sweet with a neighborhood feel to any wanted amenity.
My roommate and I stayed at Awesome Views B&B four nights and loved it. The view really was awesome and the room clean with super comfortable bed and sleeper sofa. Our room was the Mermaid's Lair which was decorated to reflect the Hawaiian colors and ideas. The location made it easily accessible to the road that leads to everywhere on Kodiak Island. The bathroom has a beautiful, but very high, claw foot tub. Both of us are short so getting in and out was a challenge. Even with this slight difficulty, we would stay in the Mermaid's Lair again.
Great room with a great view. The location of this rental is close to everything. We were even about 100yards away from my family members that love in Kodiak!
The owners weren't in town, but a very sweet lady filled in for them and took care of everything we needed.
We visited Kodiak in May of 2013 over Crab Festival weekend and we couldn't have found more picture perfect lodging for our group than the Mermaid's Lair. The location is ideal as it's just a short and easy walk to town right along the waterway. The accommodations were surprisingly spacious, and very comfortable for four adults, though the room would be perfect for a family with small children, too. There is a fabulous view of the Kodiak channel and nearby islands from all windows, as well as a roomy deck with a table and chairs...we had our morning gourmet coffee out there each day (along with homemade fruit salad, yogurt, and croissants!) and watched the fishing boats go by. The Mermaid's Lair was extremely clean and very well maintained, with plenty of fresh towels and new linen. We have stayed in several VRBO properties from Florida to California with mostly good experiences, but we have never met hosts as gracious, friendly, and helpful as Mike and Gina. We highly recommended this property to other travelers and are looking forward to a return visit soon! Thank you, Mike and Gina!
We are right on the ocean with spectacular views, wonderful beds and linens, convenient parking and location. Our beds and linens are top of the line, tasteful and comfortable.
