Stained concrete floor means easy care for this barefoot beach cottage... just sweep any sand that gets tracked in right back out the door!
Everything you will need is here, and then some: plenty of assorted white dishes, glassware & cookware, utensils, spices & linens. Books, games, comfortable seating, and more.
The large & open upstairs bedroom has a king size bed (possibly the most comfortable bed you've ever slept in, 7 of our guests have bought one!), and a computer desk at the big windows (where you can do your work , if you MUST, and marvel at the ever-changing views at the same tie.
A beautiful bath features a shower with custom glass tile octopus surrounding a porthole = bay views even while you shower! A full size washer & dryer is also upstairs.

I've had the privilege of staying at Mermaid's Landing for a month, and I think I'm in heaven. But whether it's a couple of days, a week, or a month, the ambiance, the décor, and the view meld to offer the ideal get-away. Even the weather has cooperated. A typical april, for few days it was warm enough to sit on the deck and walk on the shore of Siletz Bay. However, I have also been cozy and snug inside when it was stormy outside. One of the things I've enjoyed the most is falling asleep watching the lights of the iconic Mo's restaurant in historic Taft across the bay. Yep, I think I'm in heaven.

I had a great stay at this cottage. It is in an incredible place, right in the Siletz Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Watching harbor seals, sea otters, eagles, hawks, is a daily treat just outside the large bay view windows. It is a beautiful place with spectacular sunsets and morning rainbows, incredible old growth trees washed up on the shore as driftwood.. families cozy up to bonfires to watch the evening stars.
The cottage has everything, a great kitchen and on-demand hot shower with a porthole out to the bay view. ( ! ) Comfy, big bed in a very quiet neighborhood makes for sweet dreams.
Lincoln City is a sweet little town, with great beaches and a cool glass art scene. I took a workshop at the local fused glass shop, Mor-Art, and made some glass souvenirs to bring home.
All the creature comforts are close-by... but not to be missed is the Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural area just south in Newport. At low tide, you can explore the tidepools full of sea urchins, sea stars, and anemones... incredible!

We stayed at the artist Cottage in Feb 2013 and really enjoyed it. While it is smaller, it lives much larger than we expected. Tall ceilings and an upstairs and downstairs made it seem large. It had plenty of room, great kitchen including stove, range and fridge and a great view. We really enjoyed the views from the living room and bedroom. Felt very private here and the location was good. We'd stay here again. Cindy said the decorating was stunning!
Thank you, Don and Cindy. We hope yo'll be able to return again soon!

“A Relaxing Waterfront Retreat”

The Mermaid Cottage is a wonderful haven to relax, unwind and enjoy fabulous views of the bay and great sunsets. The cottage is well appointed with many kitchen amenities as well as artistic touches and creative flair of the owner throughout the cottage. The only thing that was missing was a microwave but that was quickly taken care of with Susan's timely and thoughtful responsiveness, and the kindness of her wonderful neighbor.
The cottage and its location is a true slice of heaven - and yes, sending it over the top was the luxuriously comfortable bed! Definitely would love to trade in my Serta for that! Overall, the only drawback was having to leave and return to reality - ouch! We appreciated the owner's flexibility and we would love to return someday.

The cottage is perfectly located right in the dunes on a protected stretch of beachfront. The cottage is compact but idea for couples or small families. My husband & I stayed at the cottage with our 5 year old daughter.
The cottage is well appointed with everything you will need. Everything is clean & well kept making the cottage a really comfortable & enjoyable place to be. Enjoy a seafood meal at the wooden dining table overlooking the bay.
As with Clambake, Susie has done a great job of giving the cottage a nautical, simplistic look but with all the mod cons that we have come to expect.
A great place with endless beaches, restaurants, scenic drives & adventures to be had within close proximity.

My husband and I spent 2 amazing months at Mermaid Cottage and can't wait to repeat the experience. What can I say...peaceful, delightful, stimulating and perfect. The cottage is brightly and artistically decorated. Plenty of windows which brings the view of the water and sky inside 24/7. It had everything we needed, including a gourmet kitchen and a bed that was hard to leave. Thank you Sue and Greg for providing such a perfect "home".

Casa Susana is a wonderful place to spend time... Its location is terrific ! You have a choice of walking out on the Marina...or stroll thru the charming village community of La Cruz. Lots of restuarants,and entertainment to choose from right in the village. Its the perfect place to stay to get the true feeling of the local people !!!
The comfort at the casa is great, as well as its beautifully decorated...A much better way to spend time than in a busy hotel !

This was the first time that I have gone on a vacation without my husband, and it was with my friend who has just survived breast cancer. Sue's place was just what the doctor ordered for lack of a better statement. I have rented from Sue in the past and this house was no exception to the quality and service that I have received in the past. Of course Feliz & Chaba are always friendly and certainly do not try to inconvience you in any way while they are there cleaning. What can I say the weather was awesome and the pool was perfect.
