Great time with family!

  • 3 of 5

We had a wonderful time with the family for my sons 30th birthday. I was disappointed in the amenities of the home as they were not as stated in the description. We had planned on a bar-b-q dinner and I checked the stated equipment and it said there was a bar b q to use. There were two there. One a gas one that should have gone to the dump many years ago (very moldy) the other only had two of the three legs to stand on, missing. So we went to town and bought our own. The paddle boat is not a paddle boat at all but broken at any rate and totally unusable as well. The bikes had flat tires so no use there either. Ice cream parlor is to look at only. Overall we had a great time because we were there to celebrate my son. For the price per night it is not an upscale visit as the description makes it sound. I do have to give credit to Darcy and the theater room. They were the two highlights of the experience. Darcy met us onsite and was very helpful. The theater room has an extensive array of choices to watch from and the seating was great. The website needs to be updated with current amenities and pictures. Both are extremely outdated.

The location was perfect for us. But home needed a cleaning, carpet was dirty. We need to purchase a BBQ as the one there was unusable. The paddle boat was not usable. Given some TLC it could be great and some updating of electronics. One thing, need to have a better explanation on bedrooms, It worked for us but some may not.

Family Fun

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Waterfront Property last weekend. It was fun and we wish we would have had more time to enjoy the perks offered. It was nice that we did not have to go to the expense of eating out as the kitchen had everything we needed. Darcy was just so easy to work with and made sure we were familiar with the house. She was very accommodating and even sent us our pillows that we forgot. The biggest drawback was not being handicap friendly. This is stated on the website but I did not read it all. There were plenty of movies, books and wonderful things to do. The next time we come we will make sure to stay a couple extra days. It was easy to find and just a couple blocks from the Ocean and town. A great eclectic home.

Very nice and unique place, fun for everyone!

  • 4 of 5

More room than I thought and my family really loved it. I hosted a family reunion and this was the host house. Over 30 people were fed and entertained daily and many positive comments were made about the house.

Pro's: 2 Kayaks, fire pit, movie theater, ice cream bar to name a few

Con's: Dirty BBQ, DVD player didn't work, cabinets in kitchen crammed full of stuff, and paddle boat broke.

Thank you for a wonderful stay, My reunion was a success!

Have a beautiful rest of your summer in the most beautiful Pacific North West, where everything is so beautiful! Aster

fun place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for a girls' weekend and we all had a great time. There were a total of 8 of us and plenty of space for all! We enjoyed the theater, watching movies both nights we were there.

There was a kayak on site, and one of our girls brought one as well, so it was nice that 2 people at a time could enjoy the canal. We were sad to find out the pedal boat needs some work - only one set of pedals actually worked and it has been in the water for quite some time so the algae caused some steering issues - but that didn't stop the girls from trying!

We had planned on using the bbq however it too was 'out of order' but again, it didn't spoil our trip in the least.

The theater is so cute and the fact that they have VCR, DVD and Discs was cool! Several of the girls had never even seen a Video Disc before! The selection of movies was great - lots to choose from for all ages.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time and would certainly consider renting this place again.

Owner's Response: I am glad that you enjoyed our home. For the pedal boat, we fixed it so many times, but the pedal chain gets off from the rack very easily each time it's used, and, nothing will really help that machine at this time. So we recommend not to use it, and use the kayak instead. The propane gas grill is working, but, the guests need to buy and bring the small, portable one time use propane canister for it and hook it up to it just like camping. gear. We have other charcoal grill and out door fire pit you can use for BBQ just for your info.

About Aster Kim and Gi Chang

Love the nature, wild life, serenity, peace, incredible beauty, openness, harmony and love in nature..

Aster Kim and Gi Chang purchased this house in 2005

Why Aster Kim and Gi Chang chose Ocean Shores

Surrounded by all above, fresh air, and the mystifying Blue Pacific!

What makes this house unique

All above yet close enough to civilization if you want to be.

This home is definately not a place for a loud drinking party people. This home is perfect for a small, intimate family/freinds gathering to share love, and enjoy the peace and harmony in nature...
