The Owner purchased this house in 1996
Pacific City, Oregon is yet an undiscovered beautiful beach location. It is 2 miles off Highway 101 so is very peaceful and does not get any highway traffic. It is one of Oregon's few sandy beaches and is the main surfing beach in Oregon.
Beautiful views, sandy beach, very quiet.
We rented this house because of the large size, nice photos on the website, good reviews, and the location (walking distance to the beach). Upon arrival we found the house to be very dirty and had a strong odor. We immediately called the owner of the home. He was very nice but six of us had to take two hours out of our vacation to clean the house and make it livable! In the end he offered us a free night and waived the cleaning fee.
We enjoyed the size of the home and the location but when we arrived we found issues with the following:
1. The house smelled of fish or some type of strong cooking odor.
2. The hard surface floors were dirty throughout. Yes the floors were swept but not cleaned with a mop etc.
3. The dishwasher was not attached so every time you open it the dishwasher tilted forward.
4. All but one of the pans was unusable due to wear and tear.
5. The dryer vent was clogged.
6. The bathroom fan had not been cleaned in months. It was caked with lint.
7. The smoke detector in one of the bedrooms was missing.
8. The oven was very dirty and needed to be cleaned.
9. The cupboards and drawers were dirty. Many of the utensils were dirty.
10. Many windows did not have screens. There were flies in the house when we arrived.
11. The bathroom shower curtain had mildew on it and it needed to be replaced.
12. There was pet hair and human hair in the carpet.
In general there is a lack of oversight when it comes to cleaning and maintenance of this house. If you are looking for clean I would recommend a different house.
This beach house was splendid for our extended family of 8... a roomy comfortable and convenient vacation home! A short walk to a great sandy beach and dune to scale! Located in a small coastal village that was large enough for needed supplies. Locals provided friendly and helpful services for our needs. Lincoln City is close enough for city services. Enjoyed the resident rabbits, birds, and occasional deer in the back yard.
Supplies were ready for roasting marshmallows and wieners in the fire pit. We liked the spacious rooms, complete kitchen, A-1 laundry room, and the huge spa tub upstairs.
Actually, we didn't have any complaints about our vacation there. Upon arrival, our major problem of interrupted internet service was fixed quite quickly. Quick response of the owner to problems or questions is definitely an asset for vacationers at Blissful Beach!
We rented this home with an eye towards spending some quality beach time with my brothers family. We were not disappointed!
The house is very centrally located. Just steps from the beach, the Pelican Brew Pub, The Dory Pizza Parlor and the store. An nice Coffee house is just a 3 minute walk as well.
The home is located on the top two floors above a real estate office--we never even knew they were there--though with six children ages 8-13 I am pretty sure they knew we were upstairs!
The house is perfectly set up for families with children, or adult getaways.
The master bedroom with en suite bath with a jetted tub and a view was the highlight for my wife. It is HUGE and offers a quiet sitting area away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the house.
The kitchen was very well furnished with everything we needed to cook for our party of 10.
In short, this house is an affordable getaway in the heart of Pacific City.
We look forward to staying again and again...
This beach house is nice and has a great location if you are looking to be where the action is. It is located on the main street that runs through town and is right across from a market place as well as steps from the pelican brew house (a must visit). The view is from the master bedroom and it is lovely. Beds were comfortable, rooms were spacious. Kitchen was well stocked with all the necessities.
The owner was prompt on emailing/returning my phone calls in the booking process. He was easy to work with.
The house was not excessively clean, a little dusty. And several things were in slight disrepair (lock on downstairs bathroom didn't seem to work and bathtub knob was held by a plier).
Also, we had trouble finding the house at first due to the fact that it is above a real estate office. This didn't cause trouble for our stay, but those who are trying to find the house may have a easier time if you are aware of this.
Nice house and a great rate. Perfect for large groups.
We had a great time with all of our family at this home. We had plenty of room and it was a lovely home so if you have multiple couples this is perfect. The bedrooms are large and have plenty of room. The location was also perfect. It was very close to food and the beach. A surf shop next door, pizza across the street and a brewery/dining establishment a block away at most that served fantastic beer and food. We had a deer and her fawn in the backyard in the morning and evening along with a mother rabbit and her babies. We went clamming and crabbing 5 miles away at Waylen Island which was a nice place out of the wind for the kids and a park like setting. We golfed in Lincoln City but I would recommend early morning or evening walks on the beach to avoid the wind. The only negative thing was the lock on the bathroom door didn't work and there is no door on the upstairs master bathroom so for a large group we had to get inventive for bathroom privacy. This house is not handicap accessible (you must go up stairs to enter in the back) so if that is needed you won't be able to stay here. We did 2 short duration grillings before the grill ran out of gas so I would recommend they have the caretakers check that routinely because when you are on vacation you don't want to have to deal with that. I would recommend fixing the downstairs lock and somehow putting a door on the upstairs bathroom since we spent alot of time up there with everyone because it is a LARGE bedroom with a sitting room with a fantastic view of the ocean and beautiful sunsets with a baclony; in fact it is the best room in the house! We would have to chase everyone out when the bathroom was needed. All in all, we had a wonderful time and enjoyed the property very much and would certainly rent it again and plan to go back in the future. I would have given a 5 instead of a 4 if the gas on the grill was full but I was a little taken back when I called the owner and he told me to go fill it myself...instead of them calling someone to take care of it....after all, we were on vacation.
