"I agree with everything other reviewers said, so I hate to add anything negative, but...
The sky lights create a hot-house effect and the ocean breezes don't blow thru the house. The house didn't cool off until about 9pm. Granted, the weather was unusually hot due to El Niño. Two hurricanes (Hilo and Ignacio) passed a few hundred miles from Hawaii while we were here. Looks like 2 more on the way after we left. A whole-house fan would do wonders to pull in the cool outside air.
With all that being said I would stay here again, but I would check the weather patterns when making plans."

"I visited Kauai for the first time about 3.5 years ago and left a piece of my heart in Haena. When planning my return trip, I knew that a stay on that beautiful stretch of beach was a must. This was the perfect house! It has everything I want when traveling: every home convenience, stunning views and quiet seclusion.
The property and house are beautiful and just a walk through the trees to a great snorkeling beach. I loved the plumerias in bloom under the dining room windows. The wonderful scent was carried on the breezes. The house was clean and well appointed and we didn't find ourselves wanting for anything for daily living. All the rooms were large and comfortable. The garage is filled with tons of beach toys, snorkel gear of varying sizes and beach chairs. It was oversized with room for a large vehicle and had a ping pong table.
While all of that was wonderful, nothing could best the spectacular views of Makana from the lanai and bedrooms. Waking up to the view of the mountain in the glow of dawn with the sound of the waves lapping at the shore is sheer peace and joy. I had the fortune to travel during a new moon and the night sky took my breathe away! The yard is expansive with few large trees, allowing for a fantastic black canvas punched by tens of thousands of stars, at least one shooting star each clear evening, and the Milky Way. A short, early morning stroll up the beach to Haena Point was rewarded with golden sunrises over the bluff at Princeville.
Willi, the owner, was great to work with and very accommodating. She was always pleasant, responsive and answered any questions I had. Many thanks to her for sharing her home!
I love the island and will definitely return! When I do, I will be booking this property again."

"We love the Mermaid House! My husband and I and our kids (12, 9 and 7 yrs old) loved coming back to this cozy home after our days adventuring around the island. The layout was very comfortable and we felt we had more than enough room. The kitchen was well equipped and we enjoyed cooking almost all of our meals that week at home. (Great money saver!) Thank you for such a beautiful place to call home for our vacation."

"Great house RIGHT on the beach, what more can I say.
Would not recommend if you are looking to go out to dinner every night as Hanalei is not far in distance but is far in time. Haena is not a town at all."
