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!!!

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
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.
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.
Three friends and I stayed at the Moonstruck Mermaid over NYE weekend. We loved the decor in the house, the wood stove, and the hot tub. The house is spacious and very tidy with a lot of natural light. Debra (owner) was very responsive! Beach access is a short walk, about a block and a half from the house, and you can see the ocean while lounging in the living room or sitting at the dinner table. We would definitely stay here again!
It's always nice staying at the Mermaid!! We hadn't stayed in a couple years, going back seemed like we never left! We will most definitely stay again and again!!
The Mermaid house was just as we had expected - the pictures tell it true. It is in good repair and well supplied throughout. Except, we did run out of dishwasher soap pods. Probably because we did a lot of cooking over the Thanksgiving holiday, and the weather encouraged us to eat in more than we had originally planned. Appreciated the supply cupboard and all of the nifty appliances that we tried.
Too bad there is not a better beach view from indoors. The house is warm and cozy without using the wood stove. There is a lot of space in the 2 living areas. We never felt crowded with 3 adults, a 5 year old, and 2 dogs. No shortage of TV's!!
Altogether a lovely place for our family to gather for a long holiday weekend.
We really enjoyed our experience at the Moonstruck Mermaid! If we didn't live so far away (Minnesota) we'd love to come back often with friends for a longer getaway. Debra was very responsive to all inquiries, and we loved the detailed instruction binder. Anything we had a question about was answered in there! The property had a great layout and was cozy and inviting; we loved the artful details throughout the home. Plus the kitchen was fully stocked with all necessary utensils, cutlery, etc. which made cooking there a breeze. Hoping to come back some day!
beautifully and comfortably furnished, great art works, everything in mint condition. Nothing amiss - all the cooking equipment you could possibly need. I had a great time - Thank You Debra for being available to answer questions, and most of all making this home available to guests.
The property is well kept and clean. We always enjoy the hot tub and wrap around deck. his place really fits our needs.The customer service is always great. We would recommend this property.
