Coastal Oregon Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Chic casual cottage on sandy beach across from Mo's Restaurant!

Mermaids Landing is a picture-perfect, super comfortable, extremely functional little beachfront gem of a beach cottage that lives very big! With a magazine-quality decor and easy care finishes, it's just the place to spend a weekend... or a month or two on the Oregon coast!

Writers & painters love it! Also great for those 'girlfriend getaways', honeymoons and other special occasions... most of our guests say they don't want to leave!

The great room is big enough to host a party, but intimate enough just for two! Satellite TV, filled bookshelves, lux white leather sectional sofa, and a fantastic coconut shell chandelier! A daybed that also converts to a queen bed allows 4 people to be very well accommodated in this special place!

The compact, but very functional as well as 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 true respite, light & airy in creams & aqua with vaulted ceilings, a subtle 'wave' wall (so soothing to drift off to sleep or awaken 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 computer desk at the window for those who must do a little 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 one wall, while a custom (created by the owner) glass tile octopus surrounds a porthole in the shower, giving you peek at the bay even while you wash!

Be forewarned: a stay at mermaids cottage may be addictive... you WILL be back!!

We accept pymt by personal check, visa/mstrcard or direct bank deposit. A 50% deposit reserves your stay, with the balance due 30 days prior to arrival date. Book your spring and summer stays now!

About Sue Lyons

Babyboomers that love to travel, Susan and Greg have opened their special homes to vacationers for 19 years. Originally from Alaska, currently splitting their time between Washington, Oregon and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (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!)

Sue Lyons purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Sue Lyons chose Coastal Oregon

We built Mermaids Landing in 2012 as a 'temporary' cottage, actually the future double garage of a larger planned beach house. After living in the cottage for a summer, we realized we loved little now!! We are happy to share this special retreat so that others can enjoy it too!

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at this cottage. I loved the decor; it was very unique and special. The view of the bay was fabulous. The kitchen had everything I needed to make a great meal and I could have left my french press at home since it even had that! We would stay here again.

Great location, quiet retreat with lots of natural light, clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

My sister came from Wisconsin for her Spring Break and I wanted to find a coastal home that was quaint and comfortable. This little beach house fit the bill perfectly. Great location, we explored the coast to the south and north. We experienced cold and blustery weather our entire stay but we knew we would return to a cozy, comfy beach cottage at the end of each day.

I will rent in the future and bring my husband for a romantic getaway. This house is perfect for two!

Thank you Sue for letting us enjoy for little piece of heaven!

Stormy Retreat on the Bay

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed the layout and location of this cottage. Every item was thought out so that the space was used to the maximum. If you enjoy cooking, there was a great gas range. We were there over Christmas and New Years so we did the traditional turkey dinner and it worked out great. We went down for the stormy season and were not disappointed. We fell asleep every night listening to the waves. In the morning we had a few of the bay from our bedroom. The shower was awesome. Having a washer and dryer made life easier (we were there 4 weeks).

We had a couple of concerns. We didn't use the BBQ as we did not care for where it was located and it was not as clean as we would want. The house was due for a really good dusting. The furniture in the living room was a disappointment as it was supposed to be white leather and it ended up being totally different from what was in the advertisement.

All this being said, we would recommend this cottage to our friends, and would stay here again ourselves. We really did enjoy ourselves.

If your are looking for a great restaurant to go and have seafood, we went to Mo's and their Seafood Chowder was divine!

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We loved this vacation cottage on the bay . . . . plenty of room for 2 people to spread out and enjoy the space (much better than a hotel!). Direct access to the beach for walks and great views/sunsets! The homeowner made things very easy and provided a lot of helpful information about the home and surrounding area.

cozy and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The two of us had a great time. With a week in the cottage, we though we'd make all kinds of day trips (to Portland, for example), but other than local exploring, we were very happy to enjoy the beach at our doorstep. We did manage to get out to the Depoe Baykery a few times. The house was exactly as described; there were no unpleasant surprises. The home's owner, Susan, was easy to reach and accommodating when we needed to change our plans. Our stay was sublime!
