    Annette A from Ottawa, Albert recommends this vacation rental

    I truly enjoyed my visit and stay. The location was super for us. My children were 5 minutes away by foot. The nearness to the main street was a definite asset as my partner cannot walk very far. The ability to see the ocean and hear the waves were a delight for me. I appreciated the quaintness of the " cottage" even the stove! I found the experience comfortable,friendly and welcoming.
    Thank you.
    PS we are Canadians from Ottawa ,Ontario, Canada! A long way from home!

    It was as advertised and much better. First impressions were surpassed until we locked the door on the last day. Such a great little 50's era stove...how many meal stories might it share if it could. The whole is a story ... relax on the ample couch adorned with attractive and comfortable pillows. Plenty of space for 4, a great space if just two. Everything from kitchen, bedroom, and livibg space was outstandibg. Access and view of beach and Pacific Ocean...stellar! Take the city pace edge off...disappear into relaxation at Mermaid house. Memories forever. Sunset Vacation Rental management team!!! loved it and thank you!

    Our stay in Manzanita was perfect. The location of the Mermaid House is an easy walk to the main street with grocery, restaurants, and shopping. You can stand in the front yard and see and hear the ocean. The home has all the basic amenities for cooking, and the old time frigidaire oven and stove works well and was fun to cook on.

    Kathryn C from Vancouver, WA recommends this vacation rental

    We had a wonderful time in the Mermaid house. The location was perfect. A block to the beach and a couple of blocks to the downtown area. We have 2 year old twins and the house worked out perfectly for them. The house is simply decorated, not too fancy but also not junky. Easy to toddler-proof. An anti slip mat for in the tub would be a nice addition as well as a floor mat for getting out of the shower.

    Becky S from Las Vegas, NV recommends this vacation rental

    The mermaid house has a lot of charm. It's very comfortable and clean. My two young children and I stayed a week and we loved walking to the beach, into town and to the park. The yard is nice to have also. It's definitely small, but we didn't mind. My two recommendations for the property are to get a new sofa and to put a screen/storm door on the front. That would help open the space up a little if you could leave the door open.

    Katie H from Portland, OR recommends this vacation rental

    First off, my daughter was sold when she found out the name of the house, and was even more excited when we arrived and she was able to go on a treasure hunt for all the mermaid paraphernalia inside. It was so pleasant walking it to this home - extremely clean, well kept & decorated, inviting. We felt comfortable soon upon arrival, such a great way to start our stay.

    Location, location, location! The half block walk to the short beach trail was ideal for my kids (ages 5 & 2), it made it so easy to take multiple trips to the beach each day. We were easily able to walk in to town & enjoyed a couple trips to the park as well.

    We were about halfway in to our stay when my daughter asked if this could become an annual tradition. I foresee us returning to the mermaid house again. Thank you so much for sharing your home!

    The Mermaid House was cute, clean, and very close to the beach. I've visited Manzanita a few times and stayed in a few places, but this was the best location – just a few blocks' walk to Laneda Ave., and literally half a block to a path that goes to the beach. The cottage isn't large but it's comfortable and pleasant. I'd be happy to return.

    a guest from Oceanside, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We had never been to Oregon before, it was a wonderful vacation! We landed in Poetland, drove the rental car to Manzanita, and were instantly in love with the Oregon Coast, the sweet little town of Manzanita and the lovely little Mermaid house on Edmund in Manzanita! We opened the doors, unpacked and headed to the beach, only 4 houses away! The sand dunes and beach grass reminded us of childhood holidays in France and Scotland.. The little house we rented was perfectly stocked and very nicely decorated! Our 11 yr old girl took the room with the Brecht decor, our teenage sun took the futon in the family room and hubby in I had the quiet room with big sliding door and views of the pine trees. We could not have found a lovelier home to rent for 9 glorious days!
    We spent all our time on the beach, fishing at the river, hiking in the forest, exploring the beachside town!

    A basic, comfortable spot in a great location--easy, short walk to beach & village main street. The one bathroom is cramped, but adequate. Back yard isn't sheltered from street or neighbors next & catches the wind, but there's a table & chairs. Altogether, rather expensive for what it is, but we were glad to be staying in our favorite N. Coast town.

    Our family of 4- 2 boys ages 7 & 9 had a wonderful 3 day vacation here. The beach is 50 feet away. Perfect for the kids to explore sand dunes and play in sand with a small stream flowing into the ocean. The home is well stocked for cooking and has towels- all the dishes and cookware you could want, if you want to cook with the market walking distance. The living room is comfy and has DVD player which was nice for family movie night after long days at the beach. Beds were comfortable. Lots of privacy, too. Great overall. While this is not a luxury lodge, this is really, really clean, comfortable, and perfect for people who just want to relax by the beach. No hassles.

    We've stayed at many Manzanita rental houses and this one is perfect for two wanting to get away. This is a good place to get away. The stove is OLD(!), baseboard heat is hard to get just right, but all else is very nice (oh, yeah, beds were soft)...not pristine and new, but very comfortable. With wifi, it had everything we wanted. Very close to beach is a huge upside.

    We loved the Mermaid House. It was just the right size for two couples. The decor was sufficiently beachy and felt authentic (we visited some friends staying in Rockaway Beach and that house was one of the tackiest places I've ever seen). The kitchen was well stocked with essentials for cooking. Everything was clean. The only thing I would change would be the size of the washer and drier. This wouldn't have been an issue if the policy about cleaning the towels and linens were different. We felt a little squeezed to put it all through before 11 AM on check-out day. But the house and location are wonderful otherwise.

    I arrived at the house at 5 pm. The house had not been cleaned, so we were not able to get in until about 6:30. The office did not notify the cleaning person the house was rented until about 5 pm apparently. Not the cleaning woman's fault. Office was not straight with me that we would be entered a dirty house from the previous renters. A frustrating start but after that our visit was fine.

    The "Mermaid House" is an experience, treasured and fruitful. It is a magical, whimsical place where family can hook into peace, simplicity....all the good things that we tend to forget in our busy, rushed lives. It is close to the ocean, and the town which is great. At the same time one feels set apart and away.
    The only thing that is negative is the yard and the care of the outside of the house. It speaks of sadness and lack of care. It totally belies(hides)the treasure of the inside of the house. It wouldn't take much to fix.
    I hope we can come back to the Mermaid House! House! Thank you for a gifted week!

    This has been our fourth stay at the Mermaid House, so you know we love it! It's simple, cozy, kinda rustic feeling, and fairly well stocked with dishes, pots, pans, etc. But mostly it's only one block from the beach, three short blocks to "downtown" Manzanita, four blocks to the market, making it simple to walk "into town" whenever we needed anything. Sure, I wish it had a larger TV (maybe a 32" flat screen?!?), because we also love to cocoon in with movies if the weather is not conducive to beach walks. But it's still comfy and cozy.

    Otherwise, we loved it. Manzanita is a gem.

    Two couples with two dogs shared this cottage comfortably. Baked cookies, cuddled up for movies, got gussied up for a beach wedding, stayed warm and cozy at night. Shower was surprisingly delightful. Close to everything. (Only "complaint" is that a fenced yard for the pups would have been convenient as our girl always wants to run out the door and back to the beach)

    Great cottage less than a minute to the beach and a short walk to restaurants & shops on Laneda. Well equipped for families with small kids--games, puzzles, videos. Excellent choice to unwind and enjoy the best of the coast. Highly recommended.

    We have stayed here before - maybe eight years ago and loved it. We started to bring our dog to the coast and was very glad you opened it up as a pet friendly house...thank you! The house was perfect for my family and hope to stay there next year!

    would have been 5 star but for the terrible hanging cooking pans, where everything stuck, poor poor quality and the couch that was highly uncomfortable, needs new futon or something. hate to gripe because we had a wonderful time other than those two things. thanks, jo

    A friend and I stayed at the Mermaid house October 14th-17th, 2010 and had a great time! We lucked out with fantastic weather but even if it had been rainy we would have enjoyed our stay due to the coziness of the house and great little town of Manzanita. We loved the open concept of the home and well appointed kitchen as well as the comfortable bedrooms, one of which had a sliding door to the backyard perfect for early morning jaunts outside for our canine companion! The house is super close to the main street of the town - walking to the pub, coffee shop, pizza parlor, shops, etc. is no problem. It truly is just steps away from the beach as well. The Mermaid house is definitely worth a return visit.

    Mary D from Portland, Or recommends this vacation rental

    We had a wonderful week-long beach vacation staying at Mermaid house. The house is in a perfect location--just a few houses from the beach and two short blocks to Manzanita's main street. Great for picking up morning coffee and newspapers and evening strolls for pizza and ice cream. The house was very comfortable for our family of three and the kitchen was well appointed. The house was also toddler friendly--breakables etc placed up high, toys and books available too.
    There are two things that would have improved our stay: It would be helpful to have a place (shed or garage) to store a jogging stroller and surf boards out of the salty ocean air/mist. It would also be helpful if the rental company provided recycling service--we had to take the recycling to a recycling center and sort it ourselves.
    All in all we had a wonderful time and hope to rent this house again for our next beach vacation!

    A small/quaint but very functional house about 200 feet from the beach. Full of thoughtful touches, especially geared to keeping young children occupied (games, puzzles, DVDs, etc). Very comfortable and relaxing. Great light. Felt instantly like home away from home. Already planning our return trip.

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Mermaid House. It's one block from the beach location made it super convenient to take our dogs to the beach. The house was very clean and had a nice small back yard. The only thing that would have made it better is a fenced back yard so the dogs could be let out on their own once in awhile. However, this house is a great value and we'd return again.

    From the tasteful updates to a mid-century cottage to the quality cookware to the "green" cleaning supplies--everything says these folks care. They care about the integrity of the home, the environment and the quality of their guests' visit. And it's a bargain. We will definitely stay here again. No question.

    Rebecca M from Portland, OR recommends this vacation rental

    The Mermaid House is a perfect getaway for our family of 4. Very cozy with an open kitchen/greatroom, a bathroom and 2 bedrooms (both of which were large enough to accommodate the Pack N Play for our 1 year old), it is a great little place for rest and fun. The home is very tastefully furnished and decorated and offers all the basic conveniences (microwave, dishwasher, TV/DVD). Many books, games, movies, and toys are available for relaxing indoors, and the house's location is ideal for heading outdoors: it is a very easy walk to the beach, shops, and city park. The property management was most helpful--quick responses and a generous extended checkout time (upon request and a reasonable fee) made for a very pleasant experience. We will definitely return to the Mermaid House again and again, and we are already planning our summer visit.

    The only recommendation we would have is for the cleaning person to check the grounds...unfortunately there was dog poop in the backyard. We are very good at cleaning up after our pup but, unfortunately someone else was not. Also, all the vacation rentals always have things like toilet paper. Obviously if you stay at one for a longer period of time, you might run out and need to run to the store but, there is always an initial supply available. Your agreement said to bring your own TP which was quite odd. Its the little things that make a difference and this is one of them...Hubby actually threatened to never rent from SSVR as he felt this was so ridiculous and cheap on SSVR part. We surveyed friends and they felt the same. We've rented from you before and had never seen this. Anyway, its a small thing but, I'd recommend you change it to at least have a roll or two to start and then if any more is needed, the tenants can supply. No worries, as we plan to rent this house again and again and again...but, wanted to share my TP survey as silly as it sounds.

    • Manager Responded on 8/6/2009

      Sunset always supplies 2 rolls of toilet paper for every toilet in all of our homes. We do ask to bring extra for longer stays. I apologize it was missed during your stay. I hope you will try us again in the future.

    Mermaid House is absolutely charming! It is just the right size for a small family - or a couple of friends on retreat (as we were this last weekend). It is convenient to the beach and to town. Just cozy, cozy, cozy! I will stay here again and again.
