Joe and Monique met several years ago and began what many would describe as a second life together. Joe is a cabinet maker and a native of Bar Harbor but has lived in Hulls Cove for many years while Monique now works at a locally owned pharmacy and at the MDI hospital.

.Together their personal goals merged on a paralell path,Joe now has the cabinet shop he has alwas wanted and for Monique a small buisness ownership that puts her in contact with a variety of interesting people.

They now very much look forward to the new friends and experiences that sharing their property and the Island's treasures will bring.

Monique Hanson purchased this apartment in 2011

Wonderful apartment, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Last week we spent five wonderful days in Bar Harbor/Arcadia National Park experiencing beautiful fall foliage and the tastes and sights of the area. A major contributing factor to our enjoyment was our stay at the Wayfaring Mermaid Suite. I received a quick response from Monique and the booking was seamless. The property was spotless, big full sized appliances with a comfortable bed and thick towels. For us the location was perfect very close to the park entrance and a short drive to town. We have rented many apartments and this is by far one of our favorites. I highly recommend this place and want to thank Joe and Monique for their hospitality.

Everything you need for a comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is very comfortable and has everything you need for your stay. It is very clean, has a well-equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, and a sweet little courtyard outside. We enjoyed the well-made cabinets and counters, constructed by Joe. It is decorated in a charming, relaxing way by Monique. We spent most of our time in the park hiking, and when we returned to the apartment, we felt at home and rested well.

Beautifully appointed and very private!

  • 5 of 5

This was a first trip north for my husband and I, and we thoroughly enjoyed our sojourn to Maine. The Wayfaring Mermaid Suite offers quick access to the many wonders of Acadia State Park and the charms of Bar Harbor. This apartment is immaculate and very well-designed. Every convenience has been anticipated and provided. We especially appreciated the well-equipped kitchen, full-size washer and dryer, and private parking. There is plenty of space to stash luggage, and a lovely side-garden with a fire pit. The owners could not be any nicer, even arranging flowers to welcome us upon arrival. We loved every minute of this vacation and would highly recommend this rental to couples or small families who appreciate quality and great value.

Perfect Place to Stay in Bar Harbor... especially if you have a little one!

  • 5 of 5

I'm still here and was just very eager to write a stellar review. We couldn't be happier staying here!

We had never been to Bar Harbor before, so we were "blindly" looking for accommodations. When booking at first, I was concerned that the apartment is a few miles out of town, but I AM SO GLAD WE ARE NOT IN THE MIDDLE OF TOWN! The apartment is quiet with ocean breezes and lots of sun-- none of which I think you would get amidst the business of town. Town is only a quick 5 minute drive and there is plenty of parking. Very convenient.

The apartment is also a stone's throw from the Acadia entrance, which turned to be perfect when traveling with our 2-year old. We can enjoy part of the park in the morning, conveniently head home for nap time, then head back. If you plan to visit the park (and it will take you DAYS to enjoy all parts), this is the perfect location. There is also Hull's Cove, a little beach, and restaurant about a block away.

As far as the apartment-- it is absolutely lovely! It is so clean and well-maintained that I feel like we are the first family to stay in it. Very comfortable. Every detail is gorgeous and meticulous (including fresh flowers upon arrival! And sand toys and coolers for trips to the beach!) Monique and Joe are kind and attentive. They even have a lovely outdoor patio for tenants with a fireplace stocked with wood and gas and charcoal grills. Perfect place for wine in the evening after putting the little one to bed! We are also very appreciative that they have a Pack and Play. That means we all get a good night's sleep!

We highly highly recommend staying here!

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The Wayfaring Mermaid Suite is simply is one of the few places I have visited where the actual property is even better than the photos. My mom and I were able to enjoy this beautiful apartment in the most perfect location, along with my 2 year-old daughter. It is clean, well- stocked, comfortable, well appointed...I was able to set up a pack and play in the bedroom, and my mom used the sofa sleeper in the main room. She said it was very comfortable, and she loved the breeze from the open windows! The bedroom bed was just as wonderful as my own bed! Monique and Joe are both so kind, and the attention to detail when building this unit is very impressive! Joe is a highly skilled craftsman, and he handcrafted the entire apartment...gorgeous (I know I am using this word a great deal...but, it's the best word to describe this place). The courtyard, which we didn't get to spend nearly enough time enjoying, was adorable...

We were able to walk to the Chart House Restaurant, which is just steps from the apartment; we also took advantage of the ice cream shop at the end of the street, as well! The rocky beach (also steps from the apartment), was the perfect spot for photos!

It was a quick two minute drive to the Acadia National Park and just minutes to downtown Bar Harbor.

You must visit Cadillac Mountain! I lived in Hawaii for two years (which has always been my favorite place on earth), and I really think Bar Harbor and the park might have moved past the islands:) We took a little drive to Bass Harbor, which was also gorgeous (beautiful sunset by the lighthouse).

If you're looking for the perfect place to in the most perfect location...this is exactly where you need to stay! I hope to be able to return and enjoy this property with my husband!

Private, Comfortable, Very Clean and Even Better than Reviews!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I arrived in Bar Harbor for a five night stay after what was left of Hurricane Arthur. We found the town dark and buzzing with generators as a large portion of the town was without power. After a brief stroll through Bar Harbor, we arrived at the Wayfaring Mermaid suite which was also dark. Monique greeted us and gave us a thorough tour. Monique and Joe were very thoughtful to offer us flashlights and lanterns.

To say that the suite was accurately represented on the VRBO site would actually be an understatement. The place is gorgeous, well-appointed with necessities and extras and incredibly clean. We have stayed in places that are not as well represented by pictures and descriptions on VRBO.

Monique and Joe's attention to detail and concern for the comfort of those who stay with them was extremely evident in some of the extras. The kitchen is more than adequately stocked with higher end utensils and cooking items. We had dish washer detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, laundry detergent, a hairdryer and linens. Many other places we have stayed do not offer those additional amenities.

We took advantage of the beautiful picnic basket and chairs provided in the outdoor storage closet to spend an afternoon on the rocks overlooking Frenchman Bay.

The park is easily accessible from the suite and downtown Bar Harbor is a short 5 minute ride. There are plenty of brochures in the suite that highlight the restaurants, attractions and activities in the area.

Though we never had the time to enjoy it, there is a very private, quaint courtyard which would be perfect to wind down the evening with a fire.

If you want a private, beautifully appointed and meticulously kept spot to call home while in Bar Harbor, this is the place for you.

Thank you so much for making our visit incredibly relaxing and comfortable! The fresh flowers and stairway lights that were lit for us every night we arrived back home did not go unnoticed.
