Cute little cabin
The cabin is adorable and ideal for a family with lots of children bc of all the bunk beds that our kids loved. We also loved that we were able to bring our dogs with us and that it was a short drive down the driveway to the private beach.
This house was lovely, well equipped and clean. The beach quiet and wild. Good for nature lovers.
The late check-in of 5 pm seems unfair given the price. We were allowed to check in at 4 but it wasnt garenteed. There was rare cell reception and no internet. There should be an emergencey phone for safety.
We are so glad this guest had a great time. This is a small remote beach cabin, just above the Pacific Ocean.
Beautiful vacation house close walk to a private beach. House was clean and beds comfortable. Great kitchen for making meals and seeing sunsets at dinner. Big cathedral windows, private and secluded - we felt like only ones there. Beach great for exploring big rocks with tide pools full of star fish, crabs, sea anemones - and even saw two river otters enjoying tide pool. Great memories!!!
When we walked up to the house we noticed a broken stair leading up onto the deck. Both decks were covered in old pine needles and slippery. The back deck was filthy from needles and moss and unusable.
When we 1st stepped into the house, there was a strong mildew odor.
We checked all over and found wet, smelly towels in the dryer. There was no clothes detergent to wash them, but we did find dish soap and washed towels in dish soap to get rid of the smell.
We found potato chips on the stairs to the loft bedroom and the carpets were dirty.
We checked the queen bed, which we had to sleep in and found the sheets to be dirty. We stripped the bed and washed them in dish soap. Under the was a foam mattress topper that was terribly stained, no mattress cover or pad so we had no choice, but to replace the sheets after the sheets were washed in dish soap, back over that stained foam. There was no blanket on the bed, only a very large comforter, which it was obvious, had not been washed recently, as it was covered in dog hair. We removed it from the bed and used a blanket we had in our car.
We used another blanket we had in the car and placed it over the old, stained couch.
There was toilet paper, but after reading notes from the past 2 renters prior to our stay, the renters had to go and and purchase it. There was no soap, no hairdryer.
The window sills were all filthy and had not been wiped off in awhile. There were large webs in the corners of the large windows.
There were some dirty cups in the cupboard, so we made sure to first wash any dishes that we used.
The pans hanging over the stove were not usable, dirty, peeling Teflon pans and a filthy, sticky wok.
I did call and complain to “By the Sea Vacation rentals”.
They mailed me a $150 discount on my next stay!
We are so sorry the guest did not like the home. This is a small, modest cabin just above the Pacific Ocean. The guest had a cleaning fee refunded. Housekeepers then came and cleaned the entire home and left supplies. The guest choose to stay, so when then refunded money off the rent. We are always willing to help whenever we can.
Good potential but our experience was unpleasant!
The property was not cleaned - bunk beds had popcorn - so deducted that the sheets were not cleaned after the previous use - yuk! Cobwebs in the house, did not have toilet paper, laundry detergent; house smelled muggy when we entered first time.
We had an unpleasant experience, a local yelled racial insults and made us feel unsafe. We did not venture out on our own into the beach cause we did not know what to expect.
We expected better experience for the money we spent.
We are so sorry the guest had a bad time, often times if the guest contacts us we are able to help.

Overall very good, great location, cleaning & maintenance could improve, checked in slightly after 9 pm, no toilet paper, rather inconvenient.
We are glad the guest had a good time. We will strive to do better in the cleaning and supply department.
