About the property

House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 5

Come visit the sleepy little town of Neskowin and stay at this charming, laid-back one bedroom cottage. You and your family can spend relaxing days lounging out on the wrap-around deck, walking down to the beach, and enjoying the slower pace of life on the Oregon coast.

Enter through a vintage blue door and into the homey and open living room, dining room, and kitchen area. There are tall, slanted wood ceilings, comfortable furniture, and a wood burning fireplace to keep you warm and toasty on chilly coast nights. Just pop the popcorn and gather the family around for a night of board games or watching DVDs. There's even a DVD library if you forget to pack your favorites from home.

The cheery and eclectic kitchen is well-stocked with a refrigerator, oven and stovetop, microwave, tea kettle, and coffeemaker -- everything you need to enjoy a great meal. There isn't a dishwasher but hey, even doing dishes can be fun when you're on vacation!

You can savor your meals on a one-of-a-kind bottle-cap mosaic table designed by the owner and her grandchildren! The dining room area also has large picture windows for great views of the scenic, quiet neighborhood. There's also a breakfast bar with four stools for grabbing a quick bite to eat in the morning before heading out for a day of coastal adventures.

The bedroom has a queen sized bed, reading lamps, and cozy bedding. A twin rollaway bed is stored in the closet, and can easily be set up in the living room by the full-sized sofa bed. Two adults and up to three children can very comfortably enjoy this family getaway. You'll even find an outdoor shower so you can rinse your feet clean after a day at the beach!

The bathroom is bright and colorful, with handmade tiles and custom artwork. A roomy bathtub is the perfect size for a relaxing bubble bath: just lay back, have a glass of wine, and admire the bathroom's crafty charm. Right across from the bathroom is a high efficiency washer and dryer so you can keep everyone in clean and warm socks after a day playing in the sand.

As cute and quirky as the inside of this delightful cottage is, you'll find yourself spending a lot of time outside! Right out the door is a wonderful deck with comfy chairs, a picnic table, and fire pit for toasting marshmallows. There's also a quirky birdhouse collection and lots of lush green grass for kids. The fenced back yard is a very nice place to turn the kids loose to explore and play while preparing dinner on the gas grill. You'll find that this laid back community is really all about family fun. After dinner, head out on a walk around the neighborhood or spend the afternoons riding bikes down the quiet, residential streets.

If you take a stroll just two blocks west, you'll find yourself on the peaceful, uncrowded beach with miles and miles of coast to explore. Take your shoes and socks off and walk along the surf while you hunt for shells and pieces of agate. For golfers, the Neskowin Golf Course is mere blocks from the house, and for art lovers, the Hawk Creek Gallery is also nearby.

Many other shopping, entertainment, and dining options are plentiful in the nearby towns of Pacific City, about 15 minutes north and Lincoln City, 20 minutes to the south. Back in Neskowin, local favorite Hawk Creek Cafe is re-opening in July 2013 and located only blocks from the house. Darrs Beach Cottage is a special home base for enjoying this unassuming little beach town, perfect to help you slow down and enjoy some time together as a family!

So much potential but failed the mark.

  • 2 of 5

My family of four loves quirky things, we also love unique places, but one thing we couldn't get behind was outdated bedding and grandparent decor. I initally was excited by the actual house and location. Neskowin is a very charming town with picturesque beach homes and this house was very close to the beach. <br />

<br />

RENTER BEWARE: The house is filled with dingy grandma decor/ tattered bedding and has a HANGING PIRATE(with a wig and knife in mouth) IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LIVING ROOM. The reason why I am accenting that part is because I didn't know that until after I booked and my kids were FREAKED!<br />

<br />

COLD NIGHT: When we arrived the heat was not turned on and we spent a very cold day/night there trying to heat up the house with one heater located in the living room and no heat in the bedroom. I had to sleep with my jacket on....not even joking.<br />

<br />

COULD BE BETTER STOCKED: We have stayed in many places at the coast and I would say that this one was the least stocked as far as things like cooking oil, sugar, salt, pepper. There were none of these so be prepared and expect nothing in any cabinets. <br />

<br />

RENT IN THE SUMMER: It might be a nice place to stay in the Summer because you are outside a lot but if you are staying there during the wintery months, when you can't really go outside, get a better place that doesn't have a mannequin hanging in the center of the house.

Owner's Response: The home decor is owner preference and clearly visible on the website's photos and 3D tour. If guests are disturbed by the decor, they are more than welcome to contact local staff to have it removed or covered up temporarily during their stay. Typically our staff turns on the wall heaters during inspection a few hours prior to guests arrival--we apologize this was not done for this reservation. Guests are always welcome to call in for local staff to bring space heaters and blankets if needed. There is also a wood burning fireplace that can provide ample heat and wood is available for purchase at the Neskowin Trading Post approximately 0.25 miles away from the home. Homeowners are not obligated to stock the home with cooking supplies; however, we will notify them none of these basic items are available and have them stocked prior to the next guest.

Darr House Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a really nice stay at the Darr House Cottage. We had friends over for dinner and we took a long walk on the beach. The living room had plenty of seating and everyone lo so quaint and quiet!

This would be a great spot in the summer to enjoy the over sized deck and beautifully landscaped yard.

Fun small house

  • 4 of 5

A fun small house located in the heart of Neskowin, only a block plus to beach and the same to "downtown" Neskowiin--grocery story, restaurants, so very centrally located. Great deck and yard. Bed was very comfortable, as were furnishings. Very much the kind of beach cottage an average person might have, no fancy furnishings or granite but very comfortable!
