Property description

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!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: 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!)

Why the Owner Chose Lincoln City:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
