It was comfortable, with a view of the beach, and pet friendly.
Great location. So close to the beach just a few steps. The walk to beach is easy and quick. It's at a beautiful part if the beach and the street it's on is lovely and quiet. It's so close to everything we parked the card at the house and didn't use it again until we left. Perfect.
We stayed 2 nights in the Cabana and it was perfect! For our family of 4 (7 & 4 yr olds) we had all we needed. The bedrooms are small but you don't need anything fancy to sleep and there was still room for our luggage. The tvs in the bedrooms came in handy for our girls. The kitchen is well stocked, the fridge is huge. Having the big dining room table was a plus as well. Tons of bath towels and the bathroom had lots of counter space. It really is close to the beach (a fewinutes walk) and a 3 minute drive to the downtown shops. Couldn't even tell that there were "neighbors" in the other unit. We would definitely stay here again. Our girls loved this little beach house.
PROS: Great location. Short walk to the beach. Quiet neighborhood despite some temporary construction going on next door. Good parking space. Nice walk into downtown. Double sinks in the bathroom. Nice stainless kitchen appliances. Comfy beds. Nice wall decor and furniture.
CONS: Numerous maintenance issues. Walls are dirty and have paint chips, scratches and holes. New paint is needed badly. Slight mold in at least one of the window sills. Baseboard trim is in bad shape all over the house. The window blinds in the living room do not open and the individual slats have been broken and replaced several times and are severely uneven. Blinds in the bedroom are also severely uneven at the base and in poor shape (looks terrible). Drywall in the bathroom above the shower is cracked and falling apart. Metal towel rack and shower rod are rusty and very unpleasing to the eye. Kitchen is very basic. Has pots and pans and a few utinsels but that’s about all. No cupboard space to hold groceries or snacks. Not a lot of space in the bedrooms for luggage. No usable closets.
This house has a lot of potential but needs a face lift. The pictures don’t reflect this. The attention to detail is poor. Because of the maintenance condition of the house it felt dirty to us. It was tolerable but glad we didn’t stay for more than a couple nights. We left slightly disappointed and unlikely to return.
We are glad to see our guest enjoyed the location and some aspects of the house. We are currently in the process of deep cleaning this home and will be getting into the nooks and crannies. Window blinds were on order prior to this stay and did not arrive in time; we apologize for this, and they have since been replaced. The manager will be addressing maintenance needs and work with the owner to get this home into better shape. Thank you!
This apt. was very clean, and attractive. The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of linens. It was quiet. There is also parking - wonderful when Cannon Beach is busy. We'd definitely stay here again.
Cozy spot near the beach. Recommend it!
Great cabana, one house from beach, easy beach access. Kept all the windows open & listened to the ocean. Perfect size, very clean, big bathroom. Would rent this cabana every year.
We loved having a TV in our bedrooms, convenience to shops, the beach, and restaurants.
We were disappointed that the very small units called cabanas, while clean, showed much deferred maintenance and very bland interiors. The Deere Earth Mover dug out a huge foundation right next door! Very noisy from 8-5. We would not wish to return. We left salt and pepper for the next guest! There was none in the kitchen. Kathleen
We are very sorry the unit did not meet our guest's size expectation and are very sorry for the construction work going on next door. The work should only last a short time, but we are sorry it disturbed this guest's vacation.
Very comfortable and right on the beach!
Only a few steps to the wonderful beach and haystack rock, this is a great little place to stay. Cannon Beach overall is a gem.
Very nice place near the beach and very quiet
This was a great choice for our family vacation. It was close to the beach and our boys loved it. The town was a walkable distance and the beach-just amazing. We would stay here again.
Cute, clean, and comfortable. Great location. Will definitely be back!
the home was just as advertised and perfect for a small getaway to Cannon Beach. It was immaculately clean and felt like hotel-quality. It was steps away from the beach and had nice chairs outside to sit in the morning sunlight with a cup of coffee. We liked that the windows all opened up with screens on them so we could enjoy the fresh air. The beds were comfortable and we had all of the amenities required for a beautiful trip!
Proximity to the beach, to town, and to favorite coffee shop
Overall, we were extremely happy with this property, the location and the amenities.
Great location - 1 house away from the beach... short walk into town. It's as advertised - 2 bed cabana. We felt it was clean, comfortable and had the right kitchen needs for our long weekend stay.
well equipped, easy access to the beach, pet friendly (which is a must for most beach walkers)
The cabin is super peaceful and very close to the beach. Very well stocked and we especially loved the gas fireplace!
Only down side was the cold and rainy weather but the fireplace was cozy and warm!
The place is small, but efficiently organized and has a great location, nice front patio and great price compared to other spots in the area. If you are looking to be out and about for most of your stay this place will work just fine. The beds were clean, there were ample towels and soap/shampoo and there were a few basic but helpful kitchen amenities (soap, sponge, coffee/tea). The gas fireplace is nice and heats the living space well.
If you are visiting during the rainy season and want some place comfy-cozy to relax, this might not fit the bill. The only soft seating is a small, stiff loveseat. There is a definite smell of moisture/mildew and it overall has a bit of a basement feel.
We are glad to receive this feedback! The love seat is new and might need some time to get broken in and feel comfy. The mildew smell is common in coastal homes when the humidity is higher and the home has been vacant for a few days. We apologize if the odor was bothersome to our guests.
Great location. Great price. Love the amenities (tv and dvd in all three areas, laundry, fully stocked kitchen, plenty of towels, early check in was awesome with 3 kids 🤗) Cleanliness could be improved.
We will work with housekeeping. We are glad to see the stay was enjoyable!
Great location, well maintained, updated and comfortable. Great location for walking to restaurants and shopping. Just steps from the beach and beautiful views of Haystack Rock. Everything we needed was available. We'd love to go back!
We had a great weekend celebrating my mom's birthday. Was great to be able to bring the dogs and have such great beach access.
AND dog friendly, what more could you ask for at the beach?
Excellent place, close to everything!
Clean, comfortable and fun!
A really cute two bedroom. Loved the location for beach local and dining, shopping.
Only draw back was excessive charge for one night stay cleaning fee. Works out to be more then half the price of the one night stay.
This was a great little place just one house in from the beach! We came for a quick family vacation before kids headed off to college and it was perfect. it has a great patio where we sat and played games on the picnic table. The house had a small kitchen but everything you need, we ate out most meals. Location is perfect, you can just park your car and not use it the entire stay because everything is within walking distance. Check in was easy and the place was nice and clean - they even had a special basket for our pup as well!
This is in a great location but is not worth the price of one night. The dishwasher didn't work very well and the place was not that clean. Smelled like a wet dog when we first got there.
Great location. 6 of us fit nicely in the space--4 adults 2 kids.
You cannot beat the location in town or its proximity to the beach and Haystack Rock. The apartment - the kitchen, living room and both bedrooms were top notch, but the bathroom looks like its from the '80s.
This is an excellent small vacation rental in a wonderful location. I recommend it without hesitation. We walked on the beach, had a nighttime campfire, ate delicious food, and slept with the rhythm of the waves soothing our tired, overworked selves.
Nice place! Very clean, bright & conveniently located. Close to the beach, close to town.
We were able to walk to both downtown and midtown, on the beach and/or the road. The unit was clean and tidy, and we had everything we needed.
My parents and my partner and myself spent one night here. Our beach weekend was actually a bit cold and rainy so we spent quite a bit of time cozy in the condo which worked out well for us. Property was very clean, conveniently located and with all the supplies needed for us to cook a great family meal. We appreciated the cozy fireplace which heats up the apartment fast!
The cabana was very neat and clean. We have a friend who won't stay at a place where she can't see the beach, we could see the beach out of part of the front windows. It would be a little cramped for 6 adults but was great for 4 adults and probably would be for 4 adults and 2 kids.
Place is great and friendly. We love this place and try to book it whenever we have time off to spend in CB.
We had a wonderful Mid-Winter break at the beach with our twin boys. The location is perfect for anyone wanting easy beach access. Once we parked the car we did not need to drive at all during out stay. Walk to the beach, coffee, grocery store, shops and restaurants.
Loved, loved the location. Very handy to beach and downtown activities.
Tha cabana was a decent size for the two of us and beds were comfortable , with nice linen. Nice to have access to the W/D for our two week stay.
HOWEVER, we will not return to this unit until the sofa has been replaced.
We had to stack pillows from the bedroom on the sofa to make it bearable to sit on.
I'm pretty sure the expense for a new couch would be tax deductible!!!
The location is fantastic, however, the property is advertised as 188 West Jackson, and doesn't reflect that the ACTUAL property is 188 West Jackson Cabana #2. It was pretty infuriating to see the outside of what we thought was our rental for the weekend, only to be sent around the corner to what appears to be a former garage remodeled into a miniature 2-bedroom cabana. There certainly isn't a fenced yard, and through the magic of forced perspective, the unit appears MUCH larger in the pictures.
At the end of the weekend, I guess it was ok, but we're probably not going to stay here again.
We apologize that finding the home was confusing for this guest. We hope they were comfortable while staying here.
Great location, clean and convenient! Handy rinse off for your dogs near door. All the necessities you need. The pull out couch NEEDS to be replaced ASAP. Not comfortable for sitting or sleeping and seen better days. An extra cushioned chair would be beneficial and is needed and would make the place much more comfortable and pleasant. Would raise from 4 star to 5 star!
Glad we stayed here, we will again! Unbeatable beach location.
A stone's throw from the beach and walking distance to town, shopping and restaurants. Perfect spot!
Lovely place to stay, one house removed from the beach, beautiful sunsets just steps from the front door, perfect for two couples or family of four.
Very clean, great spot--close to downtown, steps from the beach, could hear the ocean and see a little of the ocean from one of the bedrooms. Linens and towels smelled great (wonder what they wash them with). Very dog friendly--hose right outside the door to spray the dogs down before drying and entering the house. Very quiet area when we were there. Would definitely stay here again!
The unit is well located and convenient to the beach and town. It is small but was fine for our needs. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
One house from beach front. Central location totally walkable. Kitchen a bit tight for cooking and storage of your provisions.
Stayed in the unit with two other adults and our small dog. Can't beat the location, value and ease of the rental process. For the price, this is a great place to relax and unwind. Wish the living room space was arranged differently or utilized furniture better suited to fit the square footage of the living room / kitchen area. Overall, an excellent option in the heart of Cannon Beach.
We thought this to be a great location! Tucked behind a house gave it some wind protection, but still having some ocean view. Easy walking distance in either direction to coffee, restaurants, and shops. Unit was clean, comfortable, and very well equipped. We would stay here again!
This was the perfect place for us. We'd love to stay here again.
Walking distance to the town's shops, specialty stores, and restaurants, a very short drive to Ecola State Park (wonderful views of the handsome Oregon coastline), and a perfect location literally within yards of the beach! That's a hard combination to beat - we loved our stay
Just steps from the beach. A quick walk or bike ride to town. An affordable clean place to stay. We will come again
Very happy with this property! Wonderful location to beach and town. The space was not huge but had everything our little family of 3 could want and able to bring the dog too. Coming back for sure!
Very close to the beach, Haystack, and downtown. Great for people with a dog or two.
We loved our stay in this unit. The location couldn't be better--steps from the beach and an easy 10 minute walk to downtown shops. We loved the little touches such as a bottle of sparkling water and little box of candy for Valentine's Day and all the amenities for our dog such as bowls to use, treats, and even a bandana!
The unit was very cute with comfortable beds and good kitchen. Great beach access. Can't see the beach but it is literallyt around the corner. Very close to haystack rock. The city of Cannon Beach is great. Great restaurants and shops. Problems:The reservation confirmation email did not have the lock box key code. It was difficult to contact the reservation line (both Vacasa and VRBO) to get it. We didn't notice that it was missing until we were almost there thus reached an afterhours line. The couch was not very comfortable. The shower leaked continuously and we had to put a towel in to stop the dripping noise. Otherwise all good.
Thank you for your review. We are very sorry that we missed getting the code to you in a timely manner and can understand how frustrating that must have been. The Property Manager will take care of the shower drip as soon as possible. We are glad to see that you enjoyed the unit overall!
Perfect for 2 adults, 2 kids and 2 large dogs. Walking distance to everything. May just be our new favorite place to stay in Cannon Beach.
Perfect spot just a few steps from the beach. Lovely lighting effects in the parking area at night. Little green snowflake type lights on the ground and plants. Just delightful. Humming bird feeder outside the window. Big bird feeder at main house that is visited by a flock of doves every morning. We loved out time here.
Perfect location. One house down from the beach and easy access to downtown area. Cabana unit is in the same building as another apartment, but there is a closet in between the units and we never heard our neighbors. I'd go back for sure!
"Convenient" and "hideaway" can make for an oxymoron, but in the case of this "cabana" it stands true. The little cottage is tucked away behind larger residential structures, and yet it is one property off of the beachfront with a peekaboo view of the water. The size is not a factor because there are many large windows which make it seem more "airy". We leave the front door open most of the time because it cannot be seen from the street-adding to the little cottage's openness. You have to look for the place to find it since the cottage is invisible from the street, yet when you step off the property you are nearly on the beach.
There are two convenience stores with wine, beer, milk, eggs, chopped wood, and other essentials a short couple of blocks away. Tourist shopping is just down Hemlock, the main street with restaurants, ice cream shops, clothing, art galleries, and specialty stores galore.
The beach just a few steps away is spectacular, it is broad and long making for any recreation you like to do on a beach. I like sculpting sand and the beach has excellent sand for sculpting (not the glacial sand that the pros use, but good enough for me). My son and I went out during a brief rain shower and flew kites. My wife and I walked for miles without retracing our steps.
We have made this place our annual summer get-away for the last eight years, and we have been coming to Cannon Beach every summer for week-long stays for the last 18 years. 'Guess that makes us "experts".
We had a wonderful time...........thanks so much!!
Just spent 4 very enjoyable days at the cabana by the beach. The location is the key, i house literally from the beach. The unit is spotlessly clean, but does feel more like a hotel room than a "cabin" experience, especially as it is just one unit of several in the building. Smaller than expected from the photo's, it was fine for 2 people, could get a little tight after that. Having said that, you go for the location and the beach was our real living room, just take the patio chairs and watch the sunset a few feet away.
We will definitely be coming back!
It's a great location and perfect size for a family to enjoy the Oregon coast. We loved that we were only 27 steps from the beach. It was quiet and everything was in walking distance. The house was clean and had all the things we needed. It will be a place we would like to return. The fireplace was perfect at night when it got cold and all the board games.
The location is perfect... half way between Haystack Rock and town, everything in walking distance. The unit was very clean, warm and inviting. We will definitely book a future visit with this unit.
This property is everything you need for a beach weekend. Close access to the beach and Haystack Rock, very close to downtown Cannon Beach, and comfortable space with nice amenities. Really relaxing and enjoyable!

We stayed in the cabana with our 4 kids (10,8,6,4). It worked out perfectly for the 6 of us! We loved being just steps from the sand, and a short walk in to town. We will definitely be back!
We loved our stay at the Cabana. Can't recommend it enough! Every day started and ended with a wonderful walk on the beach. The location of the cabana is perfect, steps to the beach and an easy walk into town. The hummingbird watching was an added bonus. We can't wait for our next visit!
Thank you for your fabulous 5 star review! Pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay ringing in the New Year at this cozy Cabana and took advantage of its great location. Plus hummingbird watching, how fun! We look forward to having you for another visit.
We stayed at the Cabana over the weekend of the "Stormy Weather Arts Festival" with some friends of ours from the east coast who had never been to Cannon Beach. The rooms were cozy and just right for 2 couples to enjoy .
Every year my family and I visit different regions during the Thanksgiving season. This year we visited Cannon Beach for the first time and were very pleased with the rental property and the surroundings. The rental property is divided in multiple units and we got a small unit with 2 bedrooms. It seemed small at first sight but turned out to be the perfect size for 2 adult and 2 kids. The kitchen is small and functional and we successfully cooked a beautiful Thanksgiving turkey. We would rent this appartement again anytime. Thank you
Excellent location and value. The place is convenient to the beach and Cannon Beach itself. The house is cozy and clean and had all of the latest conveniences. A gas fireplace makes the place very inviting on a cold day. Overall, we would recommend staying here for 2-4 people.
We enjoy the stay. The location was good and it's one house from the beach.
very nice for 4. Wonderful location-able to walk to most Cannon Beach locals.
Great location. Within walking distance to both areas of Cannon Beach. Very helpful staff when we lost our key!
Thank you for this review. Its great to hear that we were there when you needed us. We look forward to seeing you again!
My family of 4 had the good fortune of staying at this lovely house a few steps from the Oregon Coast at Cannon Beach. The house was a pleasant surprise on its cleanliness, quiet tucked in location right off the beach. My 9 year old son and his buddy had a wonderful time playing outside on the patio of the house and running to the beach. We were a 5-10 minute walk to downtown Cannon Beach -- so everything was at our reach without having to drive. The house also had the added benefit of a nice kitchen and free laundry. Nothing is better than free laundry when you have children. It was a great affordable family rental. We are making reservations now for future dates. I strongly recommend the house to families on a budget...
We love Cannon Beach! The town itself is great and the beach is spectacular. It probably helped that we got some of the best weather we were told Cannon Beach sees, but still, there is just so much to love about this little town. We found the Oceanside Cabana with the help of a very friendly member of the Vacasa team who called me immediately after I'd tried to book another Vacasa property. The first property was not available but after chatting with me about what we were looking for, she recommended the Cabana. It was perfect for our young family - clean, well equipped and in a great location. We loved being able to hop onto the beach in seconds and enjoyed being an easy walking distance to downtown as well. The Cabana had everything we needed for a terrific family vacation and everyone we interacted with at Vacasa was helpful and a pleasure to speak with. We plan to return to Cannon Beach, either to the same unit or to something larger, because we hope to bring more relatives with us next time. When we return, we'll be sure to book with Vacasa again.
Very nice small cabin seconds from the beach
Came for few days midweek during our kids ( ages 8,5,& 2 months) spring break, just to get away. The cabana was just as beautiful as the pictures seen on-line. Smelled clean, was clean. My son has pretty sensitive indoor/outdoor allergies and we had no problems at the house. THANK YOU! The small, extra touches made all the difference....coffee/cocoa/tea package waiting by coffee maker was perfect. Loved the gas fireplace. The extra toothbrushes in the bathroom were wonderful as *someone* forgot to pack theirs. Overall, wonderful experience. Definitely would come again, probably in summer when the weather is more predictable; but the ocean is impressive to see when a rainstorm is blowing in.
Beach access was just what we wanted! There is a peek-a-boo view from the bedroom with the patio attached. This was just right for our family of 5, we even had one friend tagging along. The kids managed to play hide and seek in the 400sf cabana! Rain or shine, this was the perfect retreat. Priced right with all the needed amenities.
I will say, watch out for the shower! If you have children, make sure you set the water for them. It's either scalding or ice - I would worry about someone being burned.
When it comes to the kitchen, you are fully stocked. Only item we needed that wasn't available was a cheese grater :)
Great unit! Great memories!
