At the request of so many people, We built this home specifically for vacation renters. Many request a home that is on the water, one floor but still having breathtaking views. So we listened and did just that and everyone loves it. I'm a Washingtonian and my wife is Brazilian, So please let us know where your from, we love the diverse groups that come each year!
Joe purchased this House in 2006
Why Joe chose Ocean Shores
Great for elderly groups, as everything is on one level. Home is actually on the water, not posted as "waterfront" where you must walk 2 blocks through the brushes to see the it... We have a private dock for enjoying, Plus a 40 feet deck to relax on during your stay. Huge open concept home great to bigger groups
Pool / Spa
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We had the most excellent time!!! Short drive to the beach or town. Open floor plan meant lots of room to hang out inside. Everything was clean and in working order. Absolutely no complaints. The backyard is really cool. On the canal with a little dock to fish or swim from. Without the crazy beach wind or sand. Deck has large picnic table. The kids enjoyed the hot tub as well. And to be able to have our dogs there...well that was so great (I do hope nobody screws that up for everybody else lol.).
Thank you so much. We made some great memories.
Our family thoroughly enjoyed staying at this beautiful, clean, spacious home on a quiet canal. Perfect for the kiddos to play board games & watch movies in the living room while the adults to hang out around the dining room table!
We will be back for sure!
Awesome place to stay for Large group
We had a great time at this place. Our family and grandkids enjoyed staying there.
It was very spacious and the grandkids were able to play and have a good time. We enjoyed the hot tub. This is a well constructed unit with 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms.
very comfortable living space.
Beautiful property with concerns
The property is beautiful. The dishes in the kitchen are adequate to cook and serve Thanksgiving dinner on a large dining room table with lovely dishes. The living room is large, gas fireplace a nice touch for the holiday weekend. The covered front porch and back deck allowed the grandkids to get fresh air without getting soaked during rainy Thanksgiving weekend. My son-in-law spent time fishing, the ocean beach is a short drive from the house. The beds are comfortable and the decor is sparse but engaging. The coffee table in the living room is big enough for family to gather around and play board games or build a puzzle. Really lovely place.
We were surprised there was no garage access.
We were baffled that the hot water to the main bathroom sink had been shut off (we turned it back on)
Our weekend certainly took a turn for the worse when we realized two of the five smoke detectors in the house did not work.(We fried bacon and the fan above the stove is weak.It did not suck up any of the steam from the frying bacon. We opened windows so the smoke would not set off the smoke detectors.....no worries they did not work) We contacted the owner and he gave us the passcode to the garage so we could retrieve the spare batteries and the tall ladder to check out the smoke detector at the top of the 14 foot ceiling. The spare batteries were dead. The smoke detector in the main room had no batteries in it. Instead of watching the Apple Cup game as a family, my son and son-in-law drove to the IGA to get batteries and fix the smoke detectors.
The owner did offer waiving the fee if we wanted to leave late but we let him know that was not in our plans. The weekend lost its charm. I did not pay the money or drive several hours to spend the weekend in a space where we needed to do maintenance. The weekend was an opportunity for my hard working, busy family. to relax and reconnect. Between the hot water being shut off and the smoke detectors not working, rather than being able to relax we were on guard, wondering what the next surprise would be.
WOW, i'm a little shocked. We do our best to make sure our guests have a great trip and enjoy their time at the ocean. But for a weekend to be completely ruined and "turn south" over a battery??
Frustrating considering i heard my husband talking to your son on the phone offering to send the cleaner over to replace the battery (would have only taken 2-3 minutes at the most for her to do) but your son declined saying "don't worry it wasn't a big deal, saying he could just do it if he could get access to a ladder". Only to then turn around an post such a negative review, saying your trip was a disaster over an issue we couldn't control (we didn't cause the grease fire) Our business relies on keeping our guests happy, So We feel bad for all problems that arise and we do everything possible to personally resolve issues. We are told by many renters they are surprised how prompt we are to address anything that come up and they are use to rental agencies just telling them "sorry, we cant get there until next week".
In the future we do recommend you (the main reservation holder) call a host instead of someone else in the group so there isn't any miscommunication to whats "no big deal" and whats truly "a disaster in the making" for you, the reservation holder.
Lastly, it's very clear in our AD under amenities that there is no garage.
We really enjoyed our stay. The view is beautiful. The renter was accommodating. We liked how clean the house was and the open living space.
Only thing I would request to be changed would be one of the check out instructions says to have all dishes cleaned and put away. Cleaned is obviously reasonable. Most rentals I’ve used ask that the dishes be loaded and ran In the dishwasher before checking out not necessarily all put away. It made the morning that we left after eating breakfast just a bit of a hassle when we’re all trying to get out on time. But considering that’s the only thing I would change then that should be really encouraging to you as a prospective renters.
Paradise Home Away From Home
We couldn’t have asked for anything better. My Mom has wanted to take a family trip to Ocean Shores for years & this was a little paradise! The home feel so clean & spacious. We had everything we needed. It is in a phenomenal location, right on the canal & just a few minutes drive to our favorite beaches & restaurants in Ocean Shores. The boat rental is just across the canal from us and we rented a Duffy boat as well as kayaks a couple of times to explore these beautiful canals. We enjoyed the fire pit and hot tub as well as being greeted by deer in the front & back yard every day! We also enjoyed the Labor Day festivities in the area as well as horse back riding & kite flying. We really had such an amazing time & couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you!
friends rent an assortment of boats next door.
