About Monique Hanson

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.

Best spot in town

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this apartment is perfect for your time spent on the island. Its as advertised..neat and clean with an incredible outdoor space for grilling or relaxing. It is less than 1/2 mile from the entrance of acadia national park and its a quick drive to downtown bar harbor. If you are comfortbale on a bike, you could bike to downtown as well. Monique and joe were awesome hosts and communication was excellent throughout! If we make our way back to bar harbor we will be staying here again for sure!! Thanks for a great stay...

Owner's Response: We do indeed hope to see you again and look forward to more of the driveway chats we had. When these chance meetings happen it's nice to shed some light on this area for our guests and we get to learn of many other areas of our country and the world as well. Thank you for taking the time to write and aid our future guests in their decision. Monique and Joe

Excellent ANP experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our week stay at this property just minutes away from the visitor center of ANP. The amenities were perfect after a day of hiking and you are only a few minutes drive from the restaurants and shopping of Bar Harbor. We highly recommend the Wayfaring Mermaid Suite and look forward to our next visit.

Owner's Response: It's those very quality's that give our quiet little street the comfort to call it home. There is a distinct joy in sharing it with truly appreciative guests and with that thought we include the entire Acadia area. Thank you for choosing us and we look forward to your return.

Absolutely awesome vacation apartment/home in Bar Harbor!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful stay at the Wayfaring Mermaid Suite! Monique and Joe have thought of everything, and they are such sweet, kind people. We loved coming home everyday from our adventures to this charming, comfortable apartment. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Bar Harbor!

Owner's Response: We have said many times before what a funny business this is. When all the things you would do without hesitation for a friend or family member is by nature the best business decision as well. Thank you for those kind words and letting us know we have not slipped. But if we had we would want to hear that too. Joe and Monique

Returned again and again and again!

  • 5 of 5

We first stayed at Monique and Joe's beautiful Wayfairing Mermaid Suite in the fall of 2012. We were so pleased with the comfort, the cleanliness, and the attention to detail, that we just keep returning for a few weeks every year. They truly have thought of everything to make your stay perfect. It's close to the park entrance and just minutes from downtown Bar Harbor. We have been vacationing in Acadia for over thirty years so we have stayed just about everywhere but no where compares to the Wayfairing Mermaid. I highly recommend staying here!

Owner's Response: When we began this adventure we were mentored by others with rental experience and of the many things we learned two things stand out. Listen to your guests and the bench mark of success is the growth of return guests. You have helped us so much on the first and your returns add credence to the second. We look forward to your next visit. Thank You Joe and Monique

Absolutely a must stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay in this gorgeous suite located perfectly for our sightseeing adventures throughout Mt. Desert Island, Bar Harbor, Ellsworth and the surrounding areas. We were close enough for most of our activities to be a 5-10 minute drive into Bar Harbor or Acadia National Park, but were pleasantly secluded when we wanted to stop and rest. Joe and Monique were incredibly kind, friendly and accommodating throughout our week-long trip. The suite had everything we could possibly want and need and we enjoyed several nights by the fire in the beautifully crafted courtyard. I would highly recommend this property for vacationing in the Bar Harbor area, especially for couples looking for a romantic getaway, and we hope to return sometime soon!

Comfort, Function, Location

  • 5 of 5

This place felt like home for four days/nights. It is very clean, expertly crafted, comfortable and well-decorated. It is about 5 minutes (at most) from Bar Harbor, and is a nice respite from the bustle of town. It is situated at Hull's Cove, which has a couple of restaurants, a general store and a bit of a stone beach to explore. And just up the road from the entrance to Acadia Park entrance. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed coming back to the Mermaid after each day of sight-seeing and even spent time just hanging out admiring Joe's woodwork and Monique's fine decorative touches throughout. It is one of, or perhaps the most comfortable, clean and functional vacation lodgings we have ever stayed in.

Owner's Response: If blushing in this format were possible we might be doing that just a little bit right now. We are glad to know our part in your vacation was relaxed and worry free but isn't that what a vacation should be. We would want nothing less than what we provide and are always open to any suggestions our guests offer. Those suggestions over time have led us to where we are now so that you are the ones who benefit and that is rewarding to us. Many Thanks Joe and Monique
