Perfect large family beach house!!
This wonderful home is absolutely perfect for a multi-generation vacation. Everyone has room to spread out with a large common area when all want to be together. Very clean home! The kitchen is well equipped and lots of shelf space for food supplies for a large group. Beach access is perfect and the large decks are amazing. Might want to bring a flashlight for nighttime access. Our large family was so happy with this home and the owner was wonderful to work with.
Perfect size for the whole family and so relaxing right by the water.
This home was the perfect size for our 11people! Plenty of space to spend time together or apart and a quick jot down the stairs to the beach. We LOVED watching the tides come in and out and even saw some orcas from the deck! As long as you don’t mind a few dust bunnies in the corners (which we don’t!) this place was as close to perfect as could be!!! High likelihood of booking again!
Thanksgiving with family and friends
We were 4 families that spend Thanksgiving at the house with a total of 8 kids. The house is in a great location and the views out the windows are amazing. We had enough room for all of us and the kids had fun playing. We used the family room as a kids sleeping room, which was perfect. Some things in the house are older and not functioning anymore, but that didn't have an impact on the fun we had. The owner is doing some repairs and once they are done it will be even better.
Dirty had black mold in the master bedroom Windows were dirty.
We got there at check in took him another1/2 hr to clean house was still dirty white dust under the couch had barely any toilet paper for 13 people had to go buy some the windows were awfully dirty the bbq barely worked it was dirty the black mold in the master bedroom was awful my sister has cancer so she almost left had hard time opening the sliding doors no screens. Had tons of garbage around his property its was over grown where you walk to the beach Just a bad overall experience I guess you get what you pay for will never go there again. And I will let people know .
Great place for families.
Beach access, views and whales, add family and friends along with sunshine what more could one ask. The house was comfortable and very family friendly
Fantastic location and view, whale watching
Had plenty of room for 12 adults and 2 teens. Good layout for folks to have their space but also gather together for meals inside and out. Cannot beat the view. Saw several whales spouting from decks throughout the weekend. I was in wheelchair and was able to get around main floor ok but some corners a little tight. Hot tub did not have enough water in it and had to add some so that jets weren't shooting water like a fountain outside of tub. Only worked when slightly overfilled, but jets not adjustable so would still shoot water out of tub. Lights did not work in Hot tub and seemed to lose temp quickly. Microwave and BBQ were gross, had not been cleaned in a LONG time and were not used as a result, which was disappointing as we had planned to bbq. Several lights did not work for porch or outdoor patio downstairs. House was not well cleaned upon arrival...chips/crumbs under the couch, dirty linens under futon and other garbage. Would be better if house had extra linens / blankets for use. Thankfully we brought an extra set of sheets and a couple of blankets just in case. The direct beach access in front of house wasn't the safest. Slippery and only a rope tow line to hold onto. Addition of steps would greatly improve safety and access for relatively low expense.
Even though some of the items above were disappointing and did not live up to expectations based on home description, we still had a great time and loved the view/location.
Shearwater is South of the Salishan Golf Course and Market Place; North of Depoe Bay, the World's Smallest Harbor and Whale Watching Capital of the World. A short drive to theYaquina Bay Light House and Yaquina Head Light House (Agate Beach). The Cascade Music Festival and Factory Outlet Shopping are located in and around Lincoln City, twenty minutes away. Miles and miles of sandy beach at your front door.
Other Activities: Whale watching, surf fishing and deep sea fishing
