Looking for authenticity? Feel the Aloha in our luxurious mansion, a magical getaway nestled romantically on the sunny Kona coast. Voted #1 Best B&B Hawai'i West 2017. Our mermaid theme attracts ocean and nature lovers from around the world. Rest, restore and revive yourself in the clear blue waters of this Big Island, our lush tropical gardens, yoga deck and chlorine-free pool. Enjoy heartfelt hospitality, amazing breakfasts, island culture and laughter around the fire in the evenings. Come for ocean adventures with a mystical mermaid twist. You may even discover parts of yourself you haven't met before! Choose from one of our beautifully appointed rooms, all with private baths, robes and slippers. Feel like part of our ohana (family). Make some unforgettable memories at Mermaid Dreams where orchids sing, geckos eat breakfast at their own table, and honeybees get the royal treatment in their floating bee hospital. Sip back at our complimentary lanai tiki bar during sunset.

I had the most amazing experience staying at the Mermaid Dreams Bed and Breakfast last month, so much so that I decided to bring my husband back with me! I arrived on the island exhausted and depleted from work. After two nights in this wonderful healing sanctuary, my energy

Aloha, Yes, you definitely need a car on this Big Island. I suggest an economy car from Alamo. We offer transportation from the airport for the same price as a Taxi, $84, if you prefer we pick you up. Warmly, Heather & Bud

Aloha, The palm trees have now grown so high that we can no longer see the ocean from any rooms, but we can still enjoy the sunset. The good news is that the trees provide privacy and quiet. Yes, all of the rooms have a full private bathroom, except the Seahorse room guests must walk 6 feet across the hall to access theirs. The mermaid room has only a shower, not a bath tub. All rooms have luxury robes. It's a 4 minute drive to the closest restaurants, grocery store and farmer's market. South Kona is rural and car rental is HIGHLY recommended.

Dear Kay & Mike, None of our rooms have AC, and that has been true for over 25 years, presumably because we're at 1200 feet elevation which is nice and cool in the mornings and evenings. Regardless, we just installed ceiling fans in each room and the hallway for more airflow, and it's comfortable to us. The lower rooms are MUCH cooler than the upper ones and have fewer stairs. That would be the mermaid room and the garden room. The garden room is much larger. There would still be about 10 stairs to get up to the kitchen area for breakfast. I'm happy to serve breakfast in bed if that is an issue. Hope to meet you, Heather Reynolds
