About this listing
Private hot tub overlooking the ocean and harbor. Romantic, relaxed getaway or rejuvenating adventure, you'll find it here. Experience one of the best ocean views on the Oregon coast from your own room and deck. You will not be disappointed. Over 250 couples have rated it 5 Star!
The Mermaid guest suite is in a separate wing of the house and consists of bedroom with king size opium bed living room with sofa that can be opened up into a queen sized bed. (There is a small extra charge if you have more than two guests in your party.) The suite overlooks the ocean and harbor with mountain foothills in the background. The king sized bed is handmade from an antique opium bed, but with the modern comfort of a Chattam & Wells pillow top mattress. (We understand the importance of a good night's sleep!) Just through the sliding glass doors of your living room is a large deck with hot tub overlooking the ocean. We have a private acre lot so bathing suits are optional! Here you can relax and watch the moon glistening on the waves, the fishing boats arriving and departing, or the fog creeping down the mountains. Observant guests may see osprey, otters, harbor seals, sea lions, whales, or even the occasional mermaid.
You are welcome to use our large front room, joining us in lively conversation or reading a book and sipping on a glass of Oregon wine. For the music lover we have a baby grand piano for you to play while we form an appreciative audience.

Beautiful location and great hosts! The suite was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The views from the deck were great, and breakfast was delicious. One of the best AirBnB stays we've had. Would definitely stay again!
Our hosts made us feel very welcome including a glass of vino on arrival and a large breakfast with about any choice of food you can imagine. We certainly enjoyed the use of the hot tub after driving some hours up the coast. If we were to come this way again would gladly stay at their place.
Very friendly and helpful with details about the community,and restaurant information. Listing wa sac curate. Showed us around and breakfast was delicious. Gave us time to interact with other visitors. Ocean was amazing.
We stayed for two nights at Nancy's and John's place and we loved it from the very beginning! They could not be there when we arrived, so their charming housekeeper welcomed us and showed us around. The house is beautiful and tastefully decorated. The room and private bathroom are very spacious - more like a little appartment. We had everything we needed; there is a TV featuring netflix, an electric fireplace and above all am outdoor hot tub for your personal use - with wonderful views over the sea; the pictures just give a slight idea of how cosy and comfortable this place actually is. We were allowed to use the kitchen and fridge and there is a tasty breakfast served in the morning. The whole place is very clean and well taken care of, we felt at home in an instant. There are also two charming dogs who stole our hearts. Unfortunately we never got to meet Nancy and John in person, but based on their generous attitude we are sure you can have no better hosts and no better place to stay at while visiting the Oregon coast!
Wonderful experience at the mermaid Suite! Wonderful welcoming hosts! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!
Lovely hosts and great place. John and Nancy are friendly, happy to chat or leave you to your own devices as you prefer.
The room was private with a great shower/bathroom, view and the bed was massive. John cooked a tasty breakfast for us the next day. Super hosts - recommend staying here.
This was the best air bnb experience I have ever had! The location is perfect. The room had a spectacular view, very comfortable bed, beautiful bathroom, and great feel.
John and Nancy were very responsive while I was looking and extremely welcoming when I showed up. They had snacks and wine waiting even though I got in late and had booked that same day! Then I woke up to a beautiful breakfast spread and great company while we watched the waves. Never made it to the hot tub so I'll have to go back! I highly recommend john and nancy.
