Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

MCA # 1271. Our place is a charming beach house with lots of wood features: oak floors, pine panelling and cedar cathedral ceilings with skylights. There are two private decks separated by a gazebo with a large spa/hot tub that can easily accommodate six people. The side deck has patio furniture and a new grill perfect for barbecue.

The private, master bedroom has high ceilings and a new, king sized bed with new, excellent mattress and linens, and an adjoining (external) full bathroom. The second and third bedrooms are on the opposite side of the great room/dining room, making it easy for two families to share the house. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed with an Englander mattress (and internal bathroom) and the third bedroom has a trundle bed (two singles) each with a very comfortable mattress. Both the second and third bedrooms face out to the forest.

The house is located at the south end of Manzanita, a quiet residential town with a few great restaurants and shops. We are only half block from one of the most spectacular secluded beaches on Oregon's North Coast. It is bordered on one end by Neahakanie Mountain and on the other by a State Park. The beach ends in a spit and Neahkannie Bay which creates a whole different water landscape than the mighty Pacific Ocean. On the much quieter bay, there is crabbing, seal watching and kayaking.

The house is a 15 minute walk (beach or street) from the town of Manzanita, which is very much in the public eye these days. In 2005, there were articles in Sunset and Coastal Living about this sweet fun town.

Good location close to the beach.

  • 3 of 5

The house is cozy and has almost everything needed for a weekend stay. The living space was compact but it didn't feel like we were on top of each other. The little deck off the living space gave the perfect extension of room, allowing us to move in and out of doors and still be involved in what was going on in the kitchen or living room.

The beds were comfortable and the dining table seated all 6 of us easily, with room for more. The kitchen is galley style and allowed just enough room for two people to be in there without getting in each other's way too badly. We liked how easy it was to get to the beach on a short little walk through dunes to a beautiful expanse of shoreline. The hot tub was fantastic! Morning and evening soaks were enjoyed by all, post breakfast and dinner each day we were there.

The house had a good wipe down; sinks and counters were clean, but honestly the three star rating is because of cleanliness. The towels and house was musty smelling. We fixed that easily enough by airing the rooms; all windows are operational, and by washing the towels and bedding we pulled out of the cupboards. . Window sills, baseboards, lampshades, corners and floors were furry with dust and cobwebs . we tidied up as best we could and made do.

Overall, the place met our needs and we all felt it worked out well. while it won't pass a white glove test, it was a nice place to hang out for a weekend.

Hot tub only 95 degrees...no way to change. Ok otherwise.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The beds were very comfortable. The hot tub is more of a luke warm tub. Access to the beach was very close. I would have given 5 stars if the hot tub was not so disappointing.

Owner's Response: Easy to turn up the hot tub. Reading the guide book in the house or a simple text, email or call would have given you the solution: control is in the garage. How about asking for help before writing reviews?

Where to start? This house has everything needed for a lovely getaway vacation! The house was clean, well appointed and very comfortable. The location is ideal, in a wonderful community and perfectly situated for beach walking and walks to town. The owner is very responsive and genuinely concerned that your visit meets all of your expectations. We loved every moment of our visit and highly recommend this property. We hope to visit again!
