“Beautiful spot, unfortunate plumbing issues”
Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This is a beautiful home that unfortunately had some kitchen plumbing issues during our two night stay which cast a shadow on our overall experience. The problem showed itself immediately upon our arrival so not sure how it was missed by the cleaning crew. Anyway, I'd recommend MM despite our difficulties and add this one suggestion for improvement. Please add blankets for the hideaway couch/bed. What was provided was insufficient.

“This place is great!”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We really enjoyed our weekend at the beach. This house is very close to the beach, and the hot tub and comfort was fantastic. It feels like a home away from home. The artwork throughout the house was an added bonus.

“Incredibly fun”
Reviewed 21 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This was a perfect get away. Comfortable, well-stocked with towels and dishes and utensils, wonderful view of the waves, beach close by. Easy to get to, quiet, and just plain fun.

“Lovely home near the Ocean”
Reviewed 19 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

person found this review helpful

I chose Moonstruck Mermaid because I am a quilter and the photos of the house showed many quilts made by the owner. I wasn't disappointed. The description and photos on the website exactly matched what we found when we arrived. The house was spotlessly clean and fully equipped. This was possibly the most comfortable (and spacious) vacation rental we have had. It was also accessible for my 91-year old mother who uses a 4-wheel walker. We didn't use the hot tub, but did take our dog, who enjoyed the freedom of the fenced yard. It was an easy walk to the beach (hint: the walk over the dunes to the beach is easiest at the beach access south of the house). Waldport is a good central location for exploring both the north & south ends of the coast. I would recommend this rental to my friend and would definitely stay there again.

“Lovely, spacious home with beautiful art and especially comfortable furniture!”
Reviewed 7 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We really enjoyed the Moonstruck Mermaid. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated and furnished. Excellent wood-burning stove that draws exceptionally well - no unwanted smoke in the room when you open the door to add more wood. Many vacation rentals have rather uncomfortable furniture. Not so at the Moonstruck Mermaid, as the sofas and recliner chairs are soooooo comfortable! The location of this home makes it very convenient for exploring towns both North & South. We love how close it is to Yachats . . . My only suggestion for improvement would be to add a better set of dinner plates/bowls - for those who love to cook and appreciate appropriate vessels to accommodate a finely-cooked meal.

Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts about The Moonstruck Mermaid. We believe in comfort and hope our guests have a memorable experience during their visit. You do bring up an interesting point about the dinner ware. We purchased Corelle thinking that it's durability would be less stressful for guests. It is pretty difficult to break or chip Corelle. Being a klutz; I have dropped a plate more than once and been amazed that it didn't break. That being said; I do take your point that perhaps we should perhaps add additional pieces and we will. One of the benefits of a vacation rental versus a motel is the ability to cook versus dine out. And we do pride ourselves on having a well equipped kitchen.
Thanks again for your feedback and we do hope to see you again.
