About the property

Sleeps From 6-8 in three bedrooms and an upstairs studio with fold-out couch

Mermaid's Hideaway: Come and getaway where the ever-elusive Mermaids love to stay.

Casual cottage/beach bungalow style with Hawaiian and oceanic decorative touches throughout. Sitting well above the rest, this home offers panoramic views from nearly every room. Relax on the expansive 700 sq ft deck as the tradewinds roll off of the ocean to keep you cool outside.

World famous Lanikai Beach is about a 300 meter/5 minute walk, just over a city block away with easy public access.

Come hideaway in a quiet & cozy neighborhood that boasts jogging, biking, hiking and fun in the sun....private feeling, conveniently close to the beach, but just a bit set back to give quiet and privacy on days when it is busier on the beachfront.

Caretaker lives nearby for responsive service. Neighborhood is quiet and residential, so a premium is placed on mellow, respectful and neighborly guests. House is a main floor and upper level -- separate downstairs apartment unit is now empty (January 2017) until further notice.

Property not appropriate for parties, reunions, large family gatherings, receptions, wedding gatherings, etc. due to limited parking (2 spots) and noise concerns. Property has strict 8 person guest limit, generally 6 adults is the comfortable maximum with youngsters on the fold out sofabed.

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I has lived in Kailua for many years so it was a dream to be able to come back and spend 10 days on a perch overlooking the Mokes and the turquoise blue waters of Lanikai.

Mermaid Hideaway is a perfect spot, less than a 5 minute walk to the beach but a world away from the hussle and bustle of the loop.

Our hosts Harry and Barbara were extremely accommodating and caretaker Terri was phenomenal, bending over backwards to make our stay as amazing as the view!

The place has everything you need to feel at home. We absolutely loved everything about our stay. This is a MUST!

Lovely Compromise - Beauty and the Beach

  • 4 of 5

Lanikai is a lovely beach in general, but specifically for snorkeling. We were three 65 year old, quite active couples.The owners had this property for sale at the time, but held off any showings for the week we were there. Kim was very helpful with some of the problems we encountered such as needing lounge chairs and replacing cracked boogey boards. The property was clean and, as others have said, we found ourselves spending much of our time on the huge deck. If it were still on the market we would come back.

Great home away from home. THE VIEWS FROM THIS PLACE ARE INCREDIBLE!!!

  • 4 of 5

Caretakers were great to work with. Very easy to communicate with and answered any questions we had promptly. Thanks for everything Kimi and Terri. Mahola!! Gave us perfect instructions so we found the place no problem at 1:30am!! Woke up to an absolutely amazing view!! There were seven of us here, and there was plenty of room. Ran into each other a bit in the kitchen but that happens at home too! We loved sitting out on the large deck, my husband and I had our morning coffee out on the upper deck off the bedroom every morning and just stared out at the view. Actually any time we were at home we were sitting up on "our" deck. Beach towels were provided, boogie boards and beach chairs were there for our use. Only a short walk to Lankai beach. We were very sad to leave. House was very comfortable. Our first time in Hawaii and it was truly an amazing and unforgettable vacation. Will definitely be coming back to this area.

We loved this place

  • 5 of 5

Not sure where the 1-star review about this place came from. Someone had a bad day? This place is really great. The home is a comfortable beach-chic bungalow feel with nice bedrooms, some cool retro tiling in the bathrooms, and a cozy kitchen and common area hangout. But the lanai is best and where we wanted to spend all our time --- well, when not at the absolutely AMAZING beach! It's a short one block walk away, and nice to be a little away from the crowds with our private and majestic views. The information pre-trip, the greeting and briefing, and the responsiveness during our stay by the caretaker was great. (We needed some more paper products) Definitely coming back next year, bringing friends.

Beautiful Home in a Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place to spend a week of vacation on Oahu. The beach, a 4 minute walk, is beautiful. The hiking in the area is varied and excellent. Kailua beach is a 10-15 minute walk if you want to visit another beach. There are some nice restaurants in Kailua (we liked Buzz's the best) and good grocery stores to stock up on provisions.

The best feature of the house is the huge deck. We spent most of our time on the deck when we were at the house. The deck is great for grilling and dinner, or just relaxing with a good book. Having the Moku islands to look at adds to the view off the deck. Thanks, we had a great time!

Everything we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Mermaid's Hideaway. First off, the home was very clean upon arrival and the views are just amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed the large deck, which we ate breakfast at almost every morning, as well as several dinners. The gas bar-b-q was awesome, and added to our lovely dinners. The upper deck was perfect for an early morning coffee to watch the sunrise.

The layout of the house was quite conducive to our family--there are two bedrooms, a bathroom, laundry room, and a living area downstairs and then an upstairs living area adjacent to another bedroom and bathroom. It was spacious and allowed for privacy for our family.

The kitchen is stocked of all the necessary items--we cooked in almost every breakfast and dinner.

We loved the closeness to the beautiful Lanikai beach--it's just about a 5 minute walk. Kailua is very close as well. Terri made sure we had beach chairs and boogie boards to use. There is nice lounging furniture on the lower deck which we took advantage of, too.

Terri was very helpful and wonderful, checking via texts with our family throughout our vacation, making sure all was up to our expectations, if we needed anything, offered suggestions, etc. We are very thankful for their hospitality! If we vacation again in Oahu, we would definitely stay at this lovely home again. I would highly recommend this home for others, especially families! Thank you for a relaxing and memorable week.
