cozy and convenient

The Mermaids Lair was all that I hoped for! Great view of harbour and short walk to town. I wasn't feeling well when I was in Kodiak...I appreciate Gina and Mike's kind hospitality. I had a super day trip exploring the island with local tour guide.. Kodiak island is beautiful!

Beautiful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay at the Mermaid's Lair - The room was adorably decorated and extremely comfortable. And the view was awesome, as promised. An amazing oasis to relax and enjoy everything Kodiak has to offer. And I loved the breakfast treats that the hosts left for me. Would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful accomodations in Kodiak!

  • 5 of 5

I used the Mermaid's Lair as my home away from home while working in Kodiak for 2 weeks. The room is beautiful, and nothing can beat this view on the channel! Lots of privacy in a quiet location and close to town with a nice breakfast and comfy bed. Gina is a wonderful host - these are perfect accommodations for a short stay, or a long stay.

Great spot, nice views!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Awesome Views B&B! We had beautiful views of the water, saw tons of wildlife including sea otters, seals, sea lions, and eagles. We enjoyed it so much, we extended our stay another day. The room was very comfortable and clean. It's location is close enough to the downtown area to walk. We will stay here again!

Love the Mermaid's Lair

  • 5 of 5

Traveled to Kodiak for work and loved my stay at the Mermaid's Lair. The room was decorated very nice, the view was fantastic, the bed was super comfortable and I appreciated all of the little extras. Gina couldn't have been more accommodating and nice. I will definitely book with Gina again when I return to Kodiak.

Awesome Stay At the Memaid's Lair in Kodiak

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mermaid's Lair in Kodiak in mid-August. I can't say enough good things about this B&B. The views were unbelievable and the location was very convenient. Most of all, the host were extremely accommodating and went out of their way to make our stay special. Can't wait to book another stay on our next visit.
