Our guests all say they didn't want to leave! Mermaids Landing is a super comfortable, extremely functional beachfront cottage that lives very big! With a magazine-quality decor and easy care finishes, it's the perfect place to spend a weekend or a couple of months on the Oregon coast!
The great room is big enough to host a party, but intimate just the same; satellite TV, filled bookshelves, comfortable & beautiful furniture. A daybed that also converts to a queen bed allows 4 people to be very well accommodated in this special place!
The compact, very functional, artsy kitchen is an entertainers delight (6 burner gas cooktop, quality small appliances & equipment as well as pretty dishes and plenty of glassware!)
Two unique, very beachy 'dock' decks add real character to this cottage, one the entry porch and the other heads from the great room out toward the beach. Enjoy your morning cup of coffee, summer barbecues and/or wine afternoons!
Upstairs, the bedroom is a respite, light & airy in creams & aqua with vaulted ceilings, a subtle 'wave' wall (so soothing to drift off to sleep or waken to), and an extremely comfortable king bed (seriously: 6 people have purchased the same bed after sleeping in it, and the 7th just said they plan to!) There's a desk at the window for those who must do a little computer work, the view from it might make it a bit hard to concentrate on work however!
A full size washer & dryer plus a custom bath ( lighthouse stripes climb the wall, while a glass tile octopus surrounding a porthole in the shower giving you peek at the bay!) completes the upstairs.
Be forewarned: a stay at mermaids cottage may cause addiction... you WILL be back!!
Babyboomers that love to travel, Susan and Greg have opened their homes to vacationers for 18 years. Originally from Alaska, currently spending their time between Washington, Oregon and the Puerto Vallarta Mexico area (where vacation homes Casa Kaeli and Casa Susana are located.)
Susan is a fused glass artist, decorator and aspiring writer, Greg a finish carpenter and maintenance man extraordinaire!
Most important in their lives are their many friends (some they met as rental guests) and wonderful family (3 grown children and 9 incredibly gorgeous & smart ~ of course ~ grand kids!)
We built Mermaids Landing in 2012 as a 'temporary' cottage, actually the future double garage of a larger planned beach house next to Clambake Cottage (our first vacation house on this beach.) After living in the cottage for a summer, we realized we loved little!! We sold the larger house, and since we spend much of the year in Washington and Mexico, decided to offer this sweet retreat to others to enjoy. And enjoy, they have!!
Stained concrete floors downstairs make for easy-care, barefoot beach living! The open plan make this space absolutely delightful with a ton of light and excellent views of the water, sand and ever-changing weather patterns. Take your morning cup of coffee for a beach walk, sit around a beach bonfire at night. In between, there are countless things to do... or just do nothing. Either way, we are certain you will be more than delighted with this simple but beautiful beach abode... deigned especially for casual living at the Oregon Coast.
Right in our local area (Taft), there's a great neighborhood gym (Fitness 101), grocery store, kids arcade gallery, great restaurants, bonfire building, kite flying, kayaking and clamming on the flats and fishing up the Salmon River or along Salishan spit if you've got a boat.
