Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeper Sofa, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

We are centrally located to visit Yachats and Newport. Come visit the beach and rejuvenate!!! Ocean views, a woodstove, and our new Hot Tub with rainbow LED lights provide a truly relaxing beach getaway. We have close beach access and one of the best sandy beaches for beachcombing.

The Moonstruck Mermaid is owned by two artists who come to the home frequently to get inspiration for their glass and quilt art. You will see examples of their art throughout the house. The home has hardwood and ceramic tile flooring with cedar ceilings and walls throughout. As soon as you walk thru the door into the gathering room of the home your shoulders will feel lighter. The Moonstruck Mermaid has both a living room and a gathering room with game table. Our guests have enjoyed being able to watch a movie in one room and listen to music in the other. We provide HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, and On Demand for those evenings when it feels so good to just kick back and be entertained. The gathering room has a cedar cathedral ceiling with three skylights; you can watch the moon travel across the evening sky thru the skylights. There is a wall mounted 42' HDTV with DVD player and surround sound. This room also has a full size sleeper sofa that will comfortably sleep two, two leather recliners and a game table. Further there is a wet bar fully stocked with glassware, cocktail shakers, ice bucket, etc. Also there is a half bath off this room and an outside courtyard with morning sun.

There is a pass thru from this room into the newly remodeled kitchen with a JennAir convection range. There is even a crock pot to simmer a winter stew whilst you are on adventures during the day. The ocean view dining room will comfortably seat six. The living room also has a cedar cathedral ceiling, fabulous ocean view, woodstove, a 40' flat screen with DVD player and surround sound, and opens onto the expansive ocean view glassed in deck. The ocean view master bedroom has a queen pillowtop bed, large closet, 37 ' flat screen HDTV with blue ray dvd player, and also opens onto the deck conveniently close to the hot tub. The ocean view second bedroom also has a queen wrought iron canopy bed with handmade mermaid quilt. The large main bathroom has a bathtub/shower combination. The glass tile countertop and knobs in the bath were created by the owners. And finally, there is a utility room with washer and dryer.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of the Moonstruck Mermaid are all the outside relaxing areas. The lavender and herb garden with waterfall and pool are quite unique so close to the ocean. There is a seating area in the lavender garden with a dazzling ocean view and glass tile mosaic bench. There is a second lavender side garden with seating and ocean view. The expansive glassed in deck on the west and south side of the house are where the four person hot tub resides. The deck also has a private area for moonbathing after getting out of the hot tub. The deck furniture is comfortable and will seat six to eight people.

The back yard is securely fenced for your pets. Our pet guests have enjoyed this feature. The home is on the corner of Convoy and Clipper with the driveway on Clipper. The Moonstruck Mermaid is also conveniently close to our newest vacation rental..The Dancing Seahorse which is listing number 722395 on VRBO. I have another place to put quilts now!!!

About Debra

Rick and Debra found The Moonstruck Mermaid in 1998 and have been gradually transforming it into the relaxing home it has become.

Debra purchased this house in 1998

What makes this house unique

Bayshore has one of the best beaches in the area for beachcombing. Standing on the beach where the Alsea River meets the ocean is always interesing....seals and sea lions sometimes congregate. When the tides are really low; there are even tidepools in front of our home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After two nights at the Mermaid, our little family is feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. This space is homey and inspiring. We are celebrating an early Valentine's Day and a time of positive transition. We hope to come back before too long.

Lovely Home by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Moonstruck Mermaid. The home was spacious with views to the sea and lovely art everywhere you looked created by the owners. The hot tub was amazing especially with the blustery weather we had. The attention to detail left by Debra was very special - fresh flowers, fluffy towels, and just about everything one would need. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer - we will definitely be back!

Best dog friendly vacation rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our 4 night stay at the Moonstruck Mermaid was absolutely perfect! The house was very roomy and comfortable, and very well appointed. The location to the beach was less than a 5 minute walk. Having our dogs on vacation with us is very important, and this house is perfect! Having a secure fenced back yard was such a plus. The owners are very easy to communicate with and very accommodating. Great experience all the way around!

Moonstruck Mermaid

  • 4 of 5

This home was lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was well stocked for cooking, had TVs for the kids, and was pet friendly. The hot tub was fantastic and the beach was only a block away. The only thing that would have made it better is a beach view. If we head for Waldport again, we will certainly stay at the Moonstruck Mermaid second time around.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

My family has rented many homes on the coast and this is definitely one of the nicest. It's very clean, well taken care of and very comfortable. Plus, there is beautiful artwork throughout the home. We have a crawling baby and a 3 yo and the 2 bedrooms and 2 living spaces was plenty of room. We loved the hot tub on the deck. The walk to the beach is 5 minutes, but there are beautiful dunes to cross, so it was a little harder to get the stroller down there, but I did it by myself and it was fine. We also walked down to the beach club and went swimming one day.

The kitchen is well stocked and the cookware is in great shape. The only thing that we said the place needed was a cordless vacuum or at least a better broom for the sand, in our opinion. Will be coming back here, hopefully soon!
