Moonstruck Mermaid-ocean view-pet friendly-hot tub
Description from the owner
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, DVR, 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, 36' TV 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 bed. 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 and has a picnic table.
The home is on the corner of Convoy and Clipper with the driveway on Clipper.

First and foremost, this was the cleanest and most well-kept beach house we have ever rented! The kitchen is bright, modern, and well-stocked with cookware, dishes, and appliances; both living areas and the bedrooms are cozy, comfortable and spacious; and the bathrooms are updated and spotless! Overall, the home is lovely and very welcoming - like a big warm hug! The enclosed deck makes sitting outside on a windy day comfortable, and the fenced-in yard was an added bonus for our dog.
Beach access is less than a 1/2 block away, and due to the time of year we were there, we were often the only ones on the beach (which is an added bonus for me)! The beach is not rugged and rocky like some of Oregon's beaches, but has wonderful soft sand dunes, sea grasses, and lots of driftwood. You could literally walk or run for miles on this beach!
We look forward to another stay and I would highly recommend this beach home! You won't be sorry! Read more
Wowsa!! Thanks for your kind words....I especially like the "big warm hug" description of The Moonstruck Mermaid. That is exactly what we are striving for .....it is so nice that we met your expectations.
We look forward to seeing you again..

What a wonderful visit we had at the Moonstruck-Mermaid home. It is beautifully decorated and cozy, and the most comfortable home we have ever had our vacation in. It was a very short walk to the beach and our little dog loved the fenced in back yard. The home is decorated in home made quilts and stained glass and the location is perfect for shopping or etc. We really loved every thing about our stay.

Very clean and comfortable place to stay. Very cozy. Beach access nice and close. We spent alot of time in the hot tub and cooking in the marvelous kitchen. Rain or shine, this home had plenty of things to help keep you busy or relaxed. The kids have voted this their new favorite place to stay at the coast!
