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!!!

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.

Just perfect for our family getaway. Wonderful open spaces so you are not on top of each other
So many available things in the Kitchen makes making a meal easy.
We had such a wonderful time and enjoyed the beach, just beautiful!
Gross hot tub
The hot tub water was cloudy and greenish and the two kids each got an eye infection, we suspect from the dirty water.
I am so sorry the hot tub was not perfect. I am also shocked. We have professionally trained hot tub technicians from the most reputable hot tub company in Newport maintain the hot tub. We have never had this happen and have sent your complaint to them to analyze. I so wish you would have called us immediately to let us know the hot tub was not satisfactory. I specifically ask our guests to call us as soon as they notice anything that is not perfect in the welcome e mail I send with your access code. I would have immediately contacted the hot tub company and had them come inspect the hot tub. Our goal is to always provide a wonderful experience for all our guests.
Again....please do accept our apologies.
I did hear back from our hot tub maintenance company. Their records indicate that when they tested the tub the day before you got there it was well within OR state standards. They also wondered why you did not call immediately and if you had taken the floating chemical dispenser out during your stay. And they also noted that they did completely drain and sanitize the tub when you checked out because it was green.
Wonderful coastal getaway destination!
This property was wonderful! Lots of cozy space for lounging, super comfortable beds and a great hot tub with a view of the ocean. The artwork was intriguing and inviting and the whole place felt like a cozy, welcoming home. Perfect location in a quiet neighborhood and a short walk to a fantastic section of beach- dog friendly and miles of easy walking in both directions. Not far from the main section of Waldport and a short trek up to Newport for day excursions. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to others!!
Relaxing, cozy, beautiful
Prefect place for a girl's weekend getaway!
We’ve stayed here before and loved it just as much!
It’s a great place if you have family and a few furry kids as well! Everything is well maintained and well equipped.
Great house! Comfortable, clean, and charming!
Everything we needed! The art was amazing, too. Thanks so much for a great time away!
