The Mermaid House was a very short walk to both beach and town. We had a very comfortable stay but wondered if the electric heat would keep things warm enough in the winter.

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.<br/>Thank you. <br/>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.

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.

Managers Response

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and we will pass along your recommendations to the owner regarding the bathroom additions. We hope we can help you plan your next vacation here at the beach.

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.

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.<br/><br/>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.<br/><br/>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.

The Mermaid House is a cozy two bedroom house in a perfect location. You can hear the surf from the beach a half a block away. The nice little downtown is an easy two block walk. We enjoyed our stay and plan to visit again!

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.

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! <br/>We spent all our time on the beach, fishing at the river, hiking in the forest, exploring the beachside town!

Comfy cozy stay by the beach. Loved it.

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.

This is a snug, tiny house with everything you need to enjoy you time in Manzanita. I don't usually give straight 5 star reviews, but this place really merits it. Nothing fancy, which is just what we were hoping for.

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.

Very cozy house! Had everything we needed except coffee filters. The backyard was really cute with a picnic table and the beach was really close! We also could walk to get everything we wanted - take out, groceries, beach toys, ice cream, etc. Super cute little town. Beds were pretty soft but comfortable with really soft linens. Great water pressure in the shower. Overall a great house that we will likely rent again in the future!

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.

On a repeat visit, with two kids aged 4 and 7, I can safely say this is truly one of the most kid-friendly places ever. Nicely put together, but no fussy breakable stuff, barely a block from the beach, giant checkers, and simple living. We will be back!

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.

Proximity to the beach, as well as to restaurants on Laneda, is excellent. The house is in good shape overall, with fine amenities. The perfect place for a few days away on the coast.

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. <br/>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. <br/> 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.

The place was wonderful. The only thing was that the sheets were very mildewy. The first night the bed was a bit stinky and so we slept in the other bed the next night and it was the same. I think maybe they were put away wet. <br/><br/>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)

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.

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. <br/>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.<br/>All in all we had a wonderful time and hope to rent this house again for our next beach vacation!

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.

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.

Managers Response

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.
