Great Get-A-Way

Outstanding property in the perfect location to walk to the beach or town center. Great area for a romantic get-a-way, morning jogs and a family vacation.

Beautiful house! Very clean, perfect layout for our family of 6! The location is excellent, only 1 block away from the best pool in Seaside and an easy walk to the beach or the center of town. We didn't have any problems getting the TV to work. We typically wouldn't watch TV during vacation, but we were there during the Olympics this past summer and were happy to be able to watch every night. The porches were lovely, we really enjoyed the two porch swings on the first floor. Most porches in Seaside seemed to be screened, but we didn't have a problem at all with bugs and preferred the more open porches of Serendipity. Our kids are already talking about going back next summer and we definitely want to stay in this cottage again!

What's better than a porch? 4 stories of porch!

What's better than a porch? 4 stories of porch!
  • 5 of 5
Serendipity is a whimsical little charmer in a most excellent location. 5 minutes to the beach and 5 minutes to Seaside's town center. I love porches and this house has 4 stories of them, including the highest one accessible by a ship's ladder from the third floor wrap porch. That ladder is however, very steep and would be dicey for little ones, but the view of the ocean and Seaside rooftops is spectacular.

First floor contains a small kitchen, open living area, dining area that seats six, and a powder room. Second floor has two bedrooms opposite each other across an open space both with fun shutters that open so you can see into the area below. Don't worry, there are railings for protection. It's like New Orleans in the house, super fun--but we did not need privacy either since we are just one small family.

The hallway between the two bedrooms contains a twin window seat/bed which my kid loved and slept in over one of the bedrooms. Then there is a bathroom with a separated sink, and another small adjacent room with a toilet, the washer/dryer, and a small shower. There is a funky cool porch accessible from both bedrooms on this level through east facing glass doors.

Third floor has a cute little sitting area next to a full bathroom (the only one in the house) and then you step up into an open bedroom that has French doors on three sides. This room has an awesome view of Seaside rooftops right from the bed! There is a wrap porch outside each French door with some chairs, a bench, and a small table. You can see the ocean. Ship's ladder is outside the north set of doors to the small rooftop porch. The bathroom up here has a hair dryer in the vanity if you don't want to pack yours.

Pros: The front door has a lockbox so you don't have to carry a key, we loved that. Location close to everything. We loved the porches, especially the front porch swings. Views, lots of cool ones right from the house. The house is unique design wise and quintessentially Seaside with its fun details and colors. There is an outdoor shower on the side of the front porch (south side), helpful when coming from beach. The beds are comfortable. Excellent price compared to other rentals we looked at.

Cons: The decor is a bit dated and the house has some wear. Wish bedroom had reading lamps, the recessed can lights blaze in your face. Stains on twin bedroom duvet covers (others were very clean though). TV setup is confusing and none in bedrooms.

OK

  • 3 of 5
This cottage was minimally equipped. No stereo. We could not get the one TV to accept the access code so no television either (which only became an issue on our one day of downpours.) Not one lamp in the whole cottage (did not make it easy to read in bed at night.) No mirrors in any bedrooms--only small bathroom mirrors. (taking turns getting ready in the bathroom became a problem.)
Two of the three bedrooms have shutters that open into the main room--which allows for little privacy/noise control. If someone was up in the kitchen- you could hear them from both bedrooms.
House was in great location but definitely sparsely furnished.

Owner's Response: We may have a different aesthetic than this renter. If you look carefully at our cottage pictures, you will find that the cottage is very comfortably and amply furnished, with a minimum of clutter. Two bedrooms have recessed ceiling lights positioned over the beds for easy reading, and the tower bedroom has a reading alcove with two club chairs for reading. We have an iPod dock for music, and there is a detailed laminated TV instruction guide in the cottage. Lamp cords would be a hazard in our open cottage design, and many guests find the louvered openings to the second floor bedrooms a lot of fun.
A full length mirror is a good idea, and we will add one to the back of a door.

Serendipity Cottage

  • 4 of 5
Our Girls weekend at Serendipity was excellent. Although our week's stay didn't include much sun, we had a great time. Serendipity was well cared for, and included a new paint job and other upgrades. The bedding was very comfortable, and the views were really nice. The living room was spacious enough for 4 gals to watch movies and enjoy wine and cheese, and the bedrooms were well placed with 3 bathrooms to share. The hot water heater is small, so we did have to take quick showers, and there are no doors on the bedrooms - just shutters on two bedrooms - which are the two reasons our review is not a 5 star. Otherwise, this cottage is a great place to spend a week! We'll be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review! Our second floor bedrooms do have doors, but also have long shutters, which allow privacy and open to the living area below. The tower bedroom is the only room on the third floor, and is separated from the staircase by a reading alcove. The water heater is standard size, but the recovery rate is longer in the winter.
