Gorgeous sunsets, while sipping wine 30 steps above 2.5 mile stretch of beach.
About Gary Acheatel
I bought this location because I loved staying in this exact same unit. Great stuff, leather couch, down comforter, flat screen TV. WIFI. Sometimes you'll close glass doors because the waves are too loud! I live in Ashland, a gorgeous drive inland following the amazing Smith River, past the Redwoods and Cave Junction. Grew up surfing in CA and now got the best of both! Surfing, and no crowds!
Gary Acheatel purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Gary Acheatel chose White Rock Resort
It doesn't get better than this!. Few neighbors. Beach is underutilized. There have been times when the surf got so big and tide so high almost felt like we had to evacuate. If you get sea sick but love being on the water this is your place! If you like comforts of home including flat screens, Jacuzzi, internet leather sofa, but also love a bonfire, look no further. Get discounts for longer stays!
What makes this Cottage unique
Views, views, views!!! Jacuzzi deck. Well appointed furnishings and kitchen. Private loft area. Safe off the hwy, private areas, don't have to worry about kids running into street. Send them down the private path to the beach and watch them from the deck! Good dogs probably ok but extra cleaning cost. Worth it to have a real clean stay.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Our stay was awe inspiring. The unit was small but adequate and the views and beach location more than made up for anything else. Friendly atmosphere too.
I am so glad you received what it has to give. We have been gone almost a year from OR and it is our cabin, we miss the most even more than our full time home. Typically it doesn't lack anything, so please let us know if there is anything more you would recommend.
An amazing view, very clean and cozy. Great hot tub and easy beach access! Wish we could have stayed longer!
Thanks and enjoyed having you. BTW, so many recent great reviews have disappeared off this site. I might be cancelling with VRBO because of this mishap. We have about 99% great reviews like yours. Please contact us direct next time if we are no longer with VRBO and save their expensive fees.
Check your beds
We arrived and were very pleased with our view. As we looked around found that some of the switches to turn on lights didn’t work. We walked dogs on the beach(that is the good part) just before we go to go to bed my wife pulls back blankets and finds a white ( possibly spit or drewel on the black pillow case and the black sheets had human and dog hair all thru it. It was late so we slept on the couches with no blankets . The next day we stopped by the office and told them and they gave us a phone number we called. The lady that answered said she’d be over to change them and offered us an extra night free. We told her we couldn’t stay another night so SHE OFFERED A REFUND ON ONE NIGHT. Further looking around noticed a Cobb/spiderweb in bedroom window with dead flies in it. Also be aware of the tiny hot water tank . I took maybe a 5 minute shower and ended with cold water. . After we left the owner backed out of the one day refund and accused us of trying to scam him. We didn’t ask for it they offered so that’s the maddening part. Bottom line this cottage has a bit of a history with complaints. Great places but needs to be better kept. I’d love to go back but to one of other cottages there with far better reviews and reputations.
My husband and I rented this place for a long weekend and loved it! The view and the hot tub were wonderful and it ended up being the perfectly relaxed weekend that we needed. Thank you!
Great location, poorly maintained
First, the cottage is in an amazing location and has tons of potential. But.
Check in time was supposed to be at 2pm. We arrived at 5:15 pm and the cleaning crew asked us to wait a half hour longer because they were still working on the cottage. When we finally got in, the place was filthy. The carpets are dirty and smelly, the rooms have lots of useless tchotchkes on the surfaces, all covered in dust. The kitchen cabinets are covered with funk from years of people touching them and never being cleaned, we had to wash every glass and dish before using them and there is a gross smell coming from the kitchen sink area. The bathroom is tiny and absolutely disgusting, plus there’s the bonus of a tiny water heater so two people can’t even take showers one after the other. Again, the gross smell was coming from the tub drain.
The hot tub was lukewarm, and to be honest I was a bit afraid to use it anyway since everything else was so dirty.
Neither of the sliding doors lock, so you can’t leave anything valuable in the cottage if you head into Brookings. The WiFi didn’t work. The front porch light has a short in it so the cleaning woman told us to “just reach up there and hit it” to get it to turn on. It didn’t, even though we tried. I could continue . . .
I feel really cheated that we spent as much as we did per night to stay here. Super disappointing.
