Overview

Manzanita House Rental Photos and Description

View House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

The Lakeview Retreat is a two bedroom, two bath home that is just perfect for a small family or two couples wishing to spend some relaxing moments enjoying the Oregon coast. It has a grand room with a wall of windows that allows you to take full advantage of both the lake view and the lush, green Fairway view.

The Lakeview Retreat has a fully equipped kitchen that enables you to whip up a gourmet feast. Enjoy your meal in the dining room overlooking the lake and the fairway.

The Lakeview Retreat is centrally located so you can spend your days playing on the beach, exploring downtown Manzanita, golfing the links, biking the trails, or fishing and crabbing the waters of Nehalem Bay. The city has built a new bike/walking path that extends from the golf course clubhouse (just around the corner from our home) to the State Park. We are really excited about this new addition to the community and to the convenience of our location.

At night, you can enjoy leisurely evenings watching high-def TV or a Blu-ray or standard DVD on the 42' flat panel TV, or, you can read any of the books and magazines in The Lakeview Retreat's collection as well as play its numerous card and board games.

For those individuals who need to maintain a connection to the 'outside world', The Lakeview Retreat provides free upgraded high-speed wireless internet access. All this, and more, await you at The Lakeview Retreat.

Recent updates include: remodeled main bathroom with shower; Earth-friendly bamboo flooring and low VOC paint in the bedrooms; new 32 inch flat screen TV in the master with HiDef Cable and Blu-ray player; TV in the 2nd bedroom with DVD player (currently not hooked up to cable); new overhead lights in both bedrooms; new reading lights in the master; hot water heater for making tea; large bird seed container fill the bird feeder.

Previous updates include updated towels and linens, new easy to use electronic lock system, new thermostats for increased temperature comfort, freshly painted exterior, motion detector lights on the entryway and patio, new toaster oven.

About Brendan Joyce

We live full time in Portland with our dogs, but we slip away to The Lakeview Retreat every chance we can get!

Brendan Joyce purchased this house in 2007

Why Brendan Joyce chose Manzanita

We looked up and down the Oregon coast and nothing came close to the intimate atmosphere and convenient location of Manzanita. It is a truly special place that invites relaxation from the moment we enter the quaint laid-back town with its unique shops, galleries, and restaurants. The number of restaurants continues to grow, as do the amenities that Manzanita offers, but it's still not crowded like some beach cities.

What makes this house unique

The view from the living/dining room upon entering the home hooked us from the first moment we entered. It makes for a wonderful experience regardless of the weather conditions outside.

Beautiful Beach Haven - Loved Our Stay!

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely, well-maintained home with everything we needed for our Manzanita vacation. We just kept walking through the house saying how perfect it was, from the view of the golf course (we liked all that green grass and piney woods), to the cool framed maps, to the soaker tub, to the memory-foam bed, where I had the best sleep I've had in a long time. It had been a long while since we'd taken a vacation, and it was just what the doctor ordered. Short drive or walk to beach and downtown Manzanita, quiet and comfy retreat at your beautiful home. Thanks so much, we will return, hopefully soon!

Nice quiet location

  • 4 of 5
We spent 3 nights at the Lakeview Retreat and were extremely pleased with the property and the location-an easy walk to the beach or town. The house was well stocked with everything we needed to cook, there were loads of books, games, and entertainment options. The furniture was comfy and the set-up very relaxing. The property seemed to be well maintained and was clean, our only issue being that there was no extra toilet paper anywhere in the house and we had to supply our own, a small thing really though.
We had an issue with a light bulb being out in the living room and being unable to reach it because the ceilings were so high-we called the maintenance company and they were there within minutes with a ladder to change it. Everyone was very friendly and helpful.
Overall we felt like the description in the listing was very accurate and we would definitely recommend this rental to friends and family and hope to stay there again ourselves.

Perfect getaway beach house

  • 5 of 5
We shared the Lakeview Retreat with long time friends from Spokane. We have been coming to Manzanita for many years and owned a home of our own there for a time. The Lakeview owners certainly go the extra mile for their guests beginning with a thank you note and a bottle of wine on the table when we arrived. The house had many unexpected plusses like extra paper products, a full complement of bath products and condiments beyond our expectations. We loved the location - close to golf, the beach, the state park and an easy walk to town. Quiet, peaceful, laid-back and relaxing - the perfect combination. Very dog friendly as well. We'll be back - seems we have found our "go-to" house in our favorite little town.

Relaxing Couples Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolutely amazing vacation and really enjoyed our visit to your Lakeview Retreat. The home was very comfortable and quite well equipped (even more than we were expecting after reading other reviews!) The Kitchen amenities were very much appreciated as we love to cook and tend to bring all our spices down with us but found you had everything we would have needed. Also, the living room was very comfortable as well! We will definitely stay again in the future. Thank you for all your hospitality.

Beautiful home, well equipped, very relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5
This house is very well maintained, very comfortable and extremely well equipped. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook, even a lot of extra condiments and spices. The location was perfect for a short walk to the beach and a 10 minute walk into town. The beds were very comfortable as was the living room furniture. The owners were very accommodating and even had the house available 3 hours earlier than the 4:00 check in time. We appreciated the pet bowls and the towels and plastic bags for our dog. My only issue is with having to launder the sheets and towels before checking out. I have stayed in numerous rentals and have only been asked to strip the beds. It took us 3 loads of washing to get all the linens done. It took most of our morning to be able to accomplish this, which gave us little time to enjoy our last morning at the beach. I feel the cleaning person could do the laundry while cleaning the house.

Owner's Response: Hello Ellen, thank you very much for your review! We and our prospective guests appreciate your insights.

We do want to address your issue with the laundry. It is actually common in Manzanita for travelers to be asked to run loads of laundry as they prepare to check out. In fact, all of the Manzanita rental agencies have this policy on their web sites and as part of their requirements and the majority of the private owners do as well. Some rentals even request that laundry is folded and put away which we find onerous! We also provide laundry detergent which many places do not.

We do the laundry when we stay at the home. The home is equipped with modern, high capacity, high efficiency laundry appliances. It takes less than 1.5 hours total to run one load of all the linens through and leave a second load of all the towels clean and running in the dryer. We usually drop a load in, go for a walk, then start the second load while we pack up the car.

We can however accommodate guests if they run low on time with regard to the linens and towels. Just let us know ahead of time when possible or drop us a line when you are checking out so we can work something out with our exceptional cleaning crew.
