Guestbook comments from the owner
Char,



We so much enjoyed your lovely home. You've really thought of everything. The rooms were so warm & comfortable & so nicely decorated. Everything was so clean and organized, plenty of towels, kitchen supplies, and lots of great movies to watch. Your furnishings were oh so comfortable. We were all very cozy when congregating in the living room.



Thanks again so much for sharing your lovely home. We will definitely be back soon!

OUTSTANDING EXPERIENCE!!!

  • 5 of 5
This house fit our needs perfectly. Off the beaten path but still easy access. We had 5 member men's fishermen group and the place was clean, well accomodated, the beds were all comfortable, the patio and barbeque were very nice, and we will be back next year. We have rented many different homes from Astoria to Seaside the last few years and this has been the best one. The television in the living room was a bit small for watching ball games, but since the fishing was great there wasn't too much time for that anyway.

I was a bit aprehensive after reading the previous review two days prior to arrival as to what I was getting us into. However, the ONLY negative thing we encountered was someone had left a YANNI CD by the player and I took a lot of flak from my friends that it could have been mine!! It's a big leap from George Jones, Merle Haggard and Hank Williams Jr. to Yanni. We all agreed it might have been left by the previous review writer...you know, Cheese, WHINE, and Yanni lover....lol.

The whole experience from communication, rental, and deposit refund could not have gone smoother.

Thanks.....John K.

WARRENTON, OR HOUSE, NOT CLEAN, ONLY 5 BEDROOMS, VERY MISLEADING LISTING!

  • 1 of 5
We rented this house last past week for the 4th of July. This house is listed as Astoria but is located in downtown Warrenton on Alder Avenue. We are charged a cleaning fee but this home was not cleaned prior to our arrival. Very dirty. Long dark hairs and hair balls all over the carpet, spider webs, bobby pins on the floor... gross. It has only 5 bedrooms not 6 as posted. The 3 bedrooms in the basement are dank...it is moist and smelly just plain dank in the basement. 2 of the rooms down there have nasty windows that do not even open. Just plain gross. The bathroom down there has a toilet that almost touches the wall on the one side so you can hardly sit down. The shower floor is going to fall in. Nasty. The owner response to some reviews was that she replaced the grill. No, she placed a small newer grill plate over the rusty grill on the BBQ, but it is not a useable grill. It is literally like this homeowner is doing the minimum to this place. We pay a cleaning fee and yet she asks you to now wash and dry all of your towels prior to leaving. There is a swamp directly behind the home. The listing says you can walk to the beach but that is a lie. You cannot walk to the ocean beach from this house...maybe she means one of the sloughs? I am not sure. We did not even get the address until I finally called to get it. Honestly, I would not recommend this home to anyone and I would never rent again. I have rented a lot of homes through VRBO and have never seen such a poorly kept home. She also had a appraiser come see the house during our rental period which I found really inappropriate. Do that on your own time not when I am paying. Also, no garbage can in the kitchen so we had to use bathroom garbage cans and she also makes you take glass recycling home. This place really took away from our family trip and I am pretty upset about that. I also think she should be required to list it as Warrenton, OR. Saying it is in Astoria is a total lie....as is most of this listing.

NICE HOUSE WITH LOTS OF ROOM TO SPREAD OUT

  • 4 of 5
My family stayed here on a visit to Astoria. We had a great time acting like tourists. It's not that far to see all the sites. Fultano's is the local pizza parlor and either delivers or you can drive- it's good pizza and close by. I think anyone interested in a relaxing place to be should try this house. This was our first try at vacation rentals. We usually stay in a hotel. This was so much better. Thank You Char!

A FAMILY REUNION...

  • 3 of 5
We were looking for a place in Astoria (as advertised on this property) and were somewhat surprised when we ended up in Warrenton. That aside, it was a quiet and peaceful location from we enjoyed evening deer. It really did not take long to get around and we were not too bothered by that detail. The living rooms were comfortable and roomy, however, we arrived on a very hot day and were dismayed that none of the windows opened on the main floor (with exception of kitchen window)...so, we bought a fan (owner would have happily reimbursed), opened the front and back door and did our best to stay cool. Speaking of fresh air, I must say in one breath that while the downstairs was lovely cool, it was somewhat dark and musty and due to no screen in our room and plenty of mosquitoes, we could not open our window - however, when it freed up, we moved to the top floor which was airy with lots of fresh air! Moving onto the kitchen... there was plenty of cookware and a clean refrigerator, however we almost lost a toe from the dishwasher door simply falling straight down to the floor (which also made loading it a bit tricky since the tray wanted to slide right off its rails). Minor issue. However, a much bigger issue was the BBQ! We had two BBQ meals planned and so looked forward to lots of outdoor deck time. We were very disappointed to find a dirty, greasy BBQ attached to a rusty, unusable grill. Our disappointment extended to the deck which was weathered and unclean, as was the patio furniture. However, we shifted meal plans and enjoyed the big dining room area instead. Although we enjoyed our time together and enjoyed some good memories here, we found this location did not meet our needs in terms of cleanliness and comfort. However, our standards are somewhat high, and there are many others who no doubt, would be pleased with this rental.

Owner's Response: The map of this home shows the location. Warrenton is a stones throw from Astoria (just acros the river). I have let my housekeeper go after this review and hired another housekeeper who is more meticulous. This guest was there on nearly the hottest weekend on record. I was not aware of the BBQ (the coastal air is obviously mercilous to BBQ's- this is only a few years old) and the dishwasher door. Those two situations have been taken care of. I can only take care of what I know. Another reason my housekeeper was let go. As for the deck, it was powerwashed a few months prior. There may have been some debris from a windstorm. The patio furniture may have needed wiping, from general wind and dust in the air, but was clean. This guest appears to have been very particular.

QUILT RETREAT

  • 4 of 5
We had a group of 12 quilters with sewing machines,fabric and all the stuff that goes with 12 women to a retreat.We had enough room and it was very comfortable.The only draw back were one of the eyes on the stove did not work and we cooked all our meals there so it was a bit of a pain.If anyone in the group is a smoker be aware you can't smoke outside on the property,you have to go out to the street or down the sidewalk.I look forward to renting again.Deposit was refunded quickly.

COMFORTABLE RENTAL ... HOWEVER

  • 4 of 5
Pros: The house was comfortable and fairly well-stocked. Owner was responsive to email/phone messages. Security deposit was returned quickly. The microwave,washer, dryer, dishwasher are in great condition. Property was clean. A list of restaurants is provided but if the phone numbers & addresses were included it would even better. Cons: I was irritated that even though we paid a cleaning fee - we were still asked to wash towels and wipe the showers. There were also rules about the garbage/recycle. I'd ask for a copy of the rules before you commit. The grill does not work, the internal parts are rusted away. The stovetop has some burners that work on low & high heat but don't work well on the mid-heat range. Overall, taking all of the above into consideration, I would recommend this property.

Owner's Response: I ask guests to do one load of towels, then pop them in the dryer. This is due to the fact that I sometimes I have a party of 12 folks & there is a lot of laundry with 8 sets of bed linens and the large amount of towels, and at times guests use the nice terry robes I provide. This creates a lot of landry to get done in a short time so guests can have reasonable check-in times & generous check-out times. In response to the shower 'wiping', I only ask that the last person out of the shower for the day squeegy the doors- this is not a requirement, just a consideration to keep lime away. I am a big recycler & it is my hope that people will do the same. The curbside recyclers are very picky, so I elaborate on their requirements. Also, they do not take glass. Not sure what else to say about this- again no requirement here, but if the recycling container has garbage in it, they simply will not pick it up & this causes problems for the next guest. As for the BBQ, I have paid my maintenance guy 100.00 each on two occasions in the last few months to repair & clean the grill (a 3 yr old Weber that does not get along with salt air), in fact the last time was just a few weeks ago. I guess I should get a refund :O). This is the first I am hearing of the stove having these issues (I do not cook when I am there). This will be replaced.
