Nice kitchen and bathroom. Quaint fireplace. Loved that you could see and hear the ocean from livingroom.
carolyn m. Sep 2019
Everything was great! We appreciated it was dog friendly. Deck and window out front are a bonus!
Judith W. Sep 2019
it has a peekaboo view of the ocean and is only 2 short blocks away. has nice big kitchen and driveway accommodates 2-3 cars.
Kelley O. Sep 2019
View of the beach. Very clean and comfortable. Direct TV didn’t work though.
Jeanette S. Aug 2019
We had a lovely time on our little vacation. The house was clean and had everything we needed plus more! The beach is viewable from the porch and just a quick walk away. We would happily stay here again.
Julie B. Aug 2019
We loved the location of this house. So close to the beach and it was fun to have the view of the ocean. Very comfortable inside as well.
Karen T. Jul 2019
Had a very comfortable stay. Great view for not being oceanfront. Two blocks to beach access and close to Haystack Rock. The front porch was a perfect place for our morning coffee.
Agnes A. Jul 2019
Charming house with 2 bedrooms (queen bed in each bedroom), well equiped kitchen at 5 min. walking distance to the beach!
Jeffrey P. May 2019
Quick access to town, very close to beach, comfortable accommodations
Amy W. May 2019
Clean, cute and comfortable!
Marianne B. Apr 2019
We enjoyed our stay here so much. The beach is one block away and there is a good view from the living room. Once you’re at the beach Haystack rock isn’t far away. The kitchen had enough equipment to cook all our meals there even though we usually go out. This home has obviously been remodeled but still keeps its charm. Being south of the middle of Cannon Beach, you have a lot more privacy. We were impressed.
Jeri D. Apr 2019
Loved being so close to the beach. The house was so comfy and cute Would definitely stay here again.
Love, love, love this place
Elizabeth K. Apr 2019
Comfortable beds, nice layout. Great shower. Really liked the place. Would return.
Kelsey P. Feb 2019
Clean, updated, spacious. Nothing blocking the ocean view. Would definitely stay here again.

Steve S. Jan 2019
The location of the house was great. Not in town, but within walking distance of a beautiful beach. The home was comfortable and well thought out. We will definitely be back!
James A. Dec 2018
We enjoyed watching the waves from the comfort of the livingroom as a storm raged through. The house had all we needed for comfort.
John F. Sep 2018
Maureen M. Aug 2018
This house is in an ideal location. Southern end of Cannon beach away from the crowds and craziness. We could see and her the ocean and it was a very short walk to the beach itself. The house is LOVELY! It was perfect for us, our adult children and our two small grandchildren. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals and enjoy each other company. We would happily stay at this house again.
beth d. Jul 2018
We had a wonderful time, a great view and great accomodations.
Karen M. Jul 2018
Nice cozy comfortable home. The quick walk to the beach allows you to see all the funny bunnies in the neighborhood. The short walk to Sea Level Bakery is super convenient. Being able to see the waves from the living room and front porch is great. The dog friendly home was clean and well equipped for all our needs. I would choose this house again to vacation in. Thank You
Clifford O. Jun 2018
Was much more like being at home at the beach than living out of suitcases in a hotel or motel. Close enough to walk to beach and far enough not to have people constantly walking by as we sat on the deck. Thanks for a great vacation.
Charles L. Jun 2018
Right on main road. driveway too narrow. price too high for the location and house size and condition
Melanie S. May 2018
Relaxing front porch view, can walk to coffee (Sea Level) and market as well as Haystack Rock. Less than a mile to town. Lots of hiking nearby.
Anthony G. Apr 2018
We do not wish to provide a review.
Joseph K. Apr 2018
The kitchen was spacious and so was the bathroom, considering it's a rather small house. Great views! Wonderful front deck to enjoy the views from the comfortable Adirondack chairs. There was even a seagull we named Paul, who comes for a visit each morning and evening, looking for handouts. And, of course, the boys had a great time feeding Paul! (BTW...Paul does not care for carrots 😉) We enjoyed the back deck and bbq too! The best part...a quick walk to the beach!
Kurt S. Feb 2018
Great location, good beach access, close to town
We enjoyed our stay
Ann V. Feb 2018
This house has a great location only two blocks from the beach just south of haystack rock. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the view of the ocean. Much better than expected so we spent quite a bit of time just staring at the waves. We appreciated that the house took pets. It was very clean and well maintained. A great place to stay.
Sarah M. Feb 2018
I rented the Hemlock Modern Beach House for myself and a couple of friends for my birthday weekend and we had a wonderful time! The house is comfortable (beds and couch were amazing) and great access to the beach. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking ware which made preparing meals very easy! It is an easy walk to a nearby grocery store and downtown Cannon Beach is less than a 10 minute drive making it extremely convenient. The only drawback about this property was that it wasn't made clear that there is a tenant living directly behind the home. It was somewhat of a surprise to discover this upon arrival, but after the initial surprise it wasn't a big deal in the least. The tenant is friendly and introduced himself. Would recommend this property to anyone looking for a cozy rental with an easy walk to the beach!!
Christine S. Oct 2017
This house was perfect for a romantic weekend in Cannon Beach. The kitchen was well-stocked, the beds were super comfortable and the house was incredibly clean. Far better views than I expected and great help from Vacasa. Can't wait to return to this sweet house on Hemlock!
Valerie P. Oct 2017
Having a peek of the ocean, from the living room and front deck, was nice.
The house was on a busy road, but being off season, the road noise was acceptable.
It was convenient to grocery, shops and restaurants, as well as an easy walk to the beach.
Kitchen area was set up nicely and was very clean.
The bathroom was very open and bright and the towels were top rate.
Beds were very comfortable and the linens luxurious, clean and bright white.
The rental neighbor did have to cut through the carport, on several dog walking tours, but was respectful.
Back porch bbq area was spacious, but it was right in front one of the rental
homes front windows. It didn't seem like a very comfortable arrangement.
Katie S. Sep 2017
A beautiful home with a lovely view. We enjoyed sitting on the deck in the morning drinking our coffee and a quick walk to the beach for sunset, beach play and bonfires! Also a quick walk for a great cup of coffee at Sea level coffee and bakery and even a great grocery store within walking distance. We would love to stay here again!
Leslie H. Aug 2017
As a city dweller, S. Hemlock is not a busy street - there are cars, but we felt very safe crossing and there wasn't any noise. The kitchen was well appointed, had everything we needed and the place was clean and bright. And most importantly, we were 2 blocks from the beach, with a view from the front porch. Wish I was still there!
Jennifer H. Aug 2017
We had a great time in Cannon Beach. The house was very clean and modern. The only drawback is that it is on a busy street. However, you do have a wonderful view of the ocean from the house . There is a tenant who lives in the back, but he is friendly and stays out-of-the-way . It is hard to go wrong in Cannon Beach, as it is one of the nicest areas on the coast
Sean S. Jul 2017
Great little home
Karyn S. Jul 2017
Have been going to Cannon Beach since I was a kid in the 70's and 80's. Love the area always and forever. Renting through VACASA was a first and we arel pleased. The house was terrific! Yes it is on a busy street as are many of the homes nestled between the beach and hwy 101, the noise does die down about 830 and goes completely away during the evening. The renter behind the house (Jim) is a lovely gentleman who was friendly but not intrusive and his dog Buddy was quiet and out walking with Jim every day. The house is well stocked for a rental but if you are going to cook in you need to bring or purchase items (like foil etc), some basic spices are left behind but don't count on them. Coffee maker and a grinder are available and no filters are needed, toaster and oven in great shape and we love cooking with GAS. Fridge is side by side with ice maker so plenty of room for food! Grill was great and we used it! Washer and dryer in good shape and VACASA leaves you with a few detergent pods and dryer sheets as well as dishwasher pods, dish soap, sponge and trash bags. Vacuum available to keep up with dirt, sand and dog hair if needed. The view is nice from the front porch and for having cocktails in the evening. The walk to the beach is easy and several areas are set for building a fire and enjoying the sunsets so be sure to partake. The grocery, bakery and pub are a few blocks south and really nice. Loved the bakery every morning! If you want to walk into the center of Cannon Beach it is probably easiest to walk North up[the beach and go up just past Haystack Rock.
Karen E. Jul 2017
Very clean and good value for cannon beach. We have a big sweet 1 0 year old dog and he did great here. Thanks from Wuffda
Alastair R. Jun 2017
Nice accommodation in a great location>
Lisa F. Apr 2017
Clean, close to beach and town, beautiful home.
Mary B. Mar 2017
Awesome location, clean house. Loved everything about this rental
Lydia B. Mar 2017
Great view of the ocean from the living room and when it's not raining, from the front deck. The kitchen is modern and has all the amenities, The beds are comfortable and the bathroom is lovely.
Crystal T. Jan 2017
Loved our stay at the Hemlock in Cannon Beach! This was our first time booking with Vacasa and we will definitely use them again in the future. Before arrival we received detailed instructions about the rental - driving instructions, etc. it made the process very easy! We had one issue with a smoke detector but after a call in to customer service it was fixed right away! The house was super clean and the perfect size for our family. The close proximity to the beach made it a quick and easy trip to the beach for our little one. The only advice I would give to future renters is that the house is on the main road so use caution if you have young ones or dogs. We look forward to staying at the Hemlock again!!
Caroline B. Jan 2017
We had a lovely stay in Cannon Beach as the location of the house is close to the beach and a great coffee shop; Sea Level.

The images of the house are a bit misleading as its not that modern and its straight on the main the road, and there is another house on the property. Due to the images we were initially a bit disappointed, as we had very high expectations. But the location and the view of the sea made up for it. It should definitely list that its for 4 people max.

The house is clean, there is enough space for 4 people and the view to the ocean is great. Overall we had a great stay and its a good house.
Janet E. Jan 2017
The location of this house is great and has a nice view from the front. However there is a man that lives basically in the backyard and it's quite awkward. Had I known this we would have passed on renting. Unfortunately it's not disclosed in description of the house.
The house is in need of some improvements when it comes to amenities. I found the kitchen inadequate as far as cooking. There was no starter of foil, clear wrap or storage containers for extra food. Never have encountered this situation in the many times I have rented homes. No hot pads, no mixing bowls and the cookware in less than desirable condition. Rusty and teflon scratched off the bottom of pans that looked years old. There are large chains and padlocks on cupboards that are a bit offensive. Beware if you are a sports fan, no ESPN at all, we missed the bowl games. No extra blankets and pillows to be found. Table top on kitchen table is not attached, dangerous!! Disappointed.
Love Cannon Beach but will not be back to this house.
Manager response:
We are delighted to see this guest enjoyed the views from this home. The house is located in front of a full-time tenant; we are working with our editing team to get this information into the home's description so it does not come as a surprise to anyone else. The Property Manager has placed a brand new set of pots and pans in the kitchen as well as new cooking utensils, mixing bowls, drink pitchers, and hot pads. We do not supply tin foil or saran wrap in any of our Vacasa homes. The locked pantry is for housekeeping storage; we apologize that this was offensive and have clearly labeled it so guests know why it is unavailable for use. There are now extra blankets provided in the closets, and the dining tabletop has been secured. Thank you!
Jeff S. Dec 2016
The big picture windows look right down the lane where the ocean is just a stone's throw away. Clean, comfy and nestled in the quiet end of town but close to it all!
Ken S. Dec 2016
We spent the Thanksgiving week at this location. It was cold, wet, and windy but that did not deter us! The beach was amazing and can be seen from the bar in the house. We had all our meals at that bar just looking at the waves. The property is walking distance from everything. Our time there was amazing and fully relaxing.
Jamie H. Nov 2016
From setting our reservations to pulling out of the driveway on our way home, the experience we had was simply amazing. I cannot comment on any negative because we saw none. The price was fair, the home was clean and up to date, came with many extras to make our vacation headache free. The beds and all furnishings were comfortable, the shower is heaven, the kitchen was easy to use and came with everything we needed during our stay. We enjoyed our time immensely partly because we didn't have to worry about the little things. Perfect location, easily get to all the attractions, restaurants, cafe's, brewery and most of all a quick walk to the beach! Open up the blinds in the front room and there it is, we watched the waves crash while sitting on the deck enjoying morning coffee, lunch, dinner and everything in between. We will be staying here again!
Adrianna G. Oct 2016
This home has a great location! The beach is a straight shot from the house. You can see the beach out the front windows. The house has a fireplace for a warm cozy feel. The house is cute and modern. One thing we were so happy about was the carport. It was pooring rain when we arrived and we were not looking forward to getting soaked while bringing in our luggage. But when we pulled up and saw the covered carport we were really excited! The house is also about a minute drive from a very nice grocery store and short drive to all the shops and restaurants. Overall it was a great experience.
Ian F. Sep 2016
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. The space was perfect for us with a fully furnished kitchen, two bedrooms, a bathroom and living space. We enjoyed being able to make our own breakfast and dinners while looking across the street to the ocean. It is just across the street from a beach access and a 5 min. walk down the beach to Haystack Rock. There was a great little grocery store just 5 min away, and only 5 minutes into downtown Cannon Beach for shopping, restaurants, and breweries. I would say this space would accommodate up to 4 people, with two queen size beds and 1 bathroom.

We highly recommend Cannon Beach Cafe and Castaway if you are looking for a great meal and great service.

Cassandra P. Aug 2016
The listing said it sleeps 6 but we were hard pressed to find extra bedding to sleep our 5th person on the couch. I don't know where the 6th person would have been expected to sleep. Otherwise our stay was fantastic!
Lada C. Aug 2016
The house was clean and spacious. We were there on a hot day 90F so it was very hot inside but with the fans provided in the house, we were fine. The beach is just a short walk from the house. The hay stack rock is not too far from my two year old to walk there too. There are beach chairs and umbrella in the closet for guests to use. I like that. We use umbrella while watching our kids played on the beach. Bakery down the street is very good, we grabbed our breakfast from there. All in all, it was a pleasant stay.
Tara S. Aug 2016
Very nice house and value for the cost. Clean, well kept and great ocean view. Could use a few more dishes, but relatively well stocked. As others have noted, the house is situated right in front of other house, which makes for an awkward yard/parking situation, but we knew that going into it and it really didn't bother us. One thing I would call out if you are staying there in the summer months -- the house only has 4 windows that open, which means it got pretty stuffy/hot. There are a lot of fans available, but if you are someone that likes a lot of open windows/fresh air, this may not be the place for you.
Mary T. Jul 2016
We love Cannon Beach & were more then pleased with this house. It was modern, clean & had a great layout. We liked the proximity to the beach & view of the ocean from the house. I don't think the pictures did it justice! I was concerned that the road might be an issue but it want busy at all. We would definitely stay there again & recommend it to others.
Nikolai W. Jul 2016
Loved the house and it's location. Easy walk to the beach and the cafe down the street was amazing! Only a few blocks walk. The view was better than the pictures show.
Bryan M. Jul 2016
My husband and I had such a wonderful stay at the Hemlock house - just a few minutes' walk from Haystack Rock! The pictures in the posting do not do this adorable house justice. There is a great coffee shop and a wonderful little market with wine, food, and toiletries just a few blocks away. The house is in a very safe location, and I was able to go for a couple of runs around the quaint neighborhood, (not to mention my 1 minute jog to the market for more wine!). Seeing the haystacks has been at the top of my bucket list for almost a decade, and I was so so excited that it was everything I had always imagined it would be, and that the house was better than I had even hoped. If you're looking for a lovely house to stay in on your next vacation to Cannon Beach - this is it!
Erin R. Jun 2016
Second time staying here, first time with kids. Great location, we grabbed coffee and breakfast at Sea Level each morning (the cheese biscuits are incredible and they won't share the recipe, I asked). Easy walk to the beach - our 19-month-old was able to do it without trouble. We worried a bit about being on the main road, but it was a non-issue. It was quiet, traffic was never heavy, and we felt comfortable crossing the street with the kiddos.
Sharra S. Jun 2016
We loved having the ocean view. The price is good. Great location. Loved the house. The only negatives were the narrow driveway and poor drainage slope in shower.
Samantha H. Jun 2016
My brother, grandma and mother came here for my moms 50th birthday, we stayed three nights. The house is so cozy and open you can see the beach from the couch in the living room. Just loved this place. We found cranium the board game in the cupboard none of us had played and we ended up having the best night and bought the game back home.
My mom had a wonderful, relaxing time.
Carli B. Jun 2016
The house is exactly as depicted - very nicely renovated and a great view of the ocean from the living room/front deck. You can hear the waves from the house which is super nice and the beach access is a quick easy walk down from the house. We found the house fairly well equipped. Read the check in email carefully! We forgot that no beach towels were provided and ended up buying one, but there are chairs and an umbrella. We felt this house was a good value for the summer months and although we didn't have our dogs, it would be a nice place to bring pets. We had 4 adults and a toddler. The rooms were large and accommodated a pack and play no problem. It was the perfect place for a group our size.
Luanna B. May 2016
Good house for the price.
Robert S. May 2016
The view from the front deck(and the living room for that matter) is incredible. Very short walk to the beach. Fantastic sunsets!
Mary H S. May 2016
We loved our time spent in cannon beach at our little guest house! ????
Erin R. May 2016
We came for a girls' weekend and we're delighted with the location. It is on a major street, but in April it was a nonissue. Sea Level Bakery was our go-to breakfast spot and their lattes are as delicious as their pastries. Beach access is a two minute walk - a straight shot across the street from the house, and it is the access road that allows for ocean views from the living room. Even when the weather turned we enjoyed watching the waves from inside next to the fireplace. We enjoyed our stay immensely and are already planning a return visit.
KaetheJo B. Apr 2016
We loved our stay at the Beach House! If you can imagine this - we had four kids, two dogs, and my husband and I - and we all fit perfectly!( We did bring an aerobed and set it up in the living room for an additional bed.) The house was clean and well appointed - and literally a short, 5 minute walk to the best part of Cannon Beach! We loved it! We went to the beach twice a day and never got tired of it. Prior to booking I did read reviews regarding the busy street (with two little ones and two dogs, this made me a little nervous - so we just made sure, or tried to make sure that the little ones didn't go outside on their own) as well as the friendly neighbor in the back. He certainly was friendly as was his dog! It wasn't uncomfortable or weird at all. All of my kiddos enjoyed conversation with him and loved petting and loving on his dog. My only suggestion is to add a fan or two. Maybe tuck them away in the closets. It was unseasonably hot the first two days we were there (like middle of July hot) and we couldn't get the house or ourselves cooled down. We counted 4 windows that we were able to open, but that didn't provide enough cross breeze. We did leave all the doors open for awhile - but with dogs and little ones - that was a short lived feat. A fan or two would have been a God send. But all in all, we loved it there and we really hope to make this Beach House a regular family getaway to!
Barbara K. Apr 2016
The house was comfortable and quiet. It is easy to walk to the beach and Haystack Rock.
Michelle P. Apr 2016
We stayed here with two small children (7years old and 8 months). It was a short walk across the street to the beach. It's off a busy street so keep kids close. Walking distance to coffee shop and small market. House was clean and stocked with the items we needed to feel at home for our short stay.
Debbie M. Apr 2016

Shane F. Mar 2016
Definitely check out Mo's for informal dining and great food. Three of six family members ordered the blackened fish tacos...mmmmm, good! Wife loved Sea Level Bakery + Coffee within a short walk from the house. Of course, beautiful beach access with views of Haystack within 2 blocks. For those with dogs or young children, please be watchful as the house is situated on a busy road with fast moving cars. Also, know that the neighbor behind the rental house is very close, sharing the same lot (his front yard is the rental house's backyard). Nice guy, but felt weird at first so we didn't use the backyard.
Margaret H. Mar 2016
We were very happy with this house and it's location, and certainly would consider renting it again. Really, the only downside is the very narrow, sloping driveway onto a very busy street.
Maeve M. Mar 2016
It was very stormy and we had a nice view of the ocean waves. We enjoyed our stay.
Kristina M. Mar 2016
Our family four enjoyed the proximity to the beach (even though it's a block away, you can still see the ocean from the living room). Nice & clean, cozy & comfy, updated home. A few movies to choose from. Walking distance to Sea Level for baked goods and coffee. We love the walk into town, though it's a bit dicey if you choose to walk on the main road instead of the beach. Overall, a great place and we would definitely return!
Megan G. Feb 2016
The house was very nice and newly renovated. The location was a little far for us as we prefer to be closer to downtown with the shops and restaurants. This made for a lot of walking! Also, you share a yard with the person who lives in a house behind the rental property. He also has a dog. I wish this would have been disclosed to me before hand so there were not any surprises. Still a good property and would recommend to others if you are looking for a nice affordable place to stay with your fur babies.
Susan S. Feb 2016
This house was very convenient to the beach with easy beach access. It is simple and cute with an efficient layout.
Bill V. Jan 2016
Its alway nice to be in cannon beach, However when you pay for a cleaning expect it to be clean..while stsying at Hemlock house we came across a lot of dust and dirt under the couch and wrappers behind the couch..we accidently noticed it when I dropped my phone on the floor..we usually stay in nice hotels and they are very clean..for the extra money we spent on this house..we would rather stay in the nice hotel..most of your time is outside enjoying cannon beach and all it has to offer..In this case we didn't get what we paid for. My wife had to clean the coffee pot as well..Cannon Beach is a beautiful place to visit..we will definitely be back at cannon Beach..
Manager response:
Thank you for your review. We apologize that housekeeping missed a few spots while cleaning prior to your stay. We will ask them to be mindful of these spots in the future. We hope you were comfortable and enjoyed the beach!
Aaron Y. Nov 2015
Great location. Place was very clean and nice. Internet was a bit slow, but Directv was a plus. Short walk ( < 2 minutes) to the beach. 5 minute walk to a close pub. Great shops and restaurants to check out all within a 10 minute walk of the property. Great place to stay if visiting Cannon Beach.
Jared N. Oct 2015
The location is great however it is off a busy road and the drive way is very narrow. In general, the house was clean however there was a very strong odor of wet dog in the living room. So strong was this odor that it detracted from our say the first day. The second day it dissipated. Huge locks on many of the cabinets makes me think they may have had issues with vandals or bad guests in the past. There is a gentleman who lives behind the vacation home and you seem him walking by all the time. This didn't bother us but if this bothers you, you may not want to stay elsewhere. Lastly, the beds are older and so are the pillows.
Andrea O. Oct 2015
We had a great time at Hemlock Beach House! It was right by the water, which made it great for morning walks and an evening fire on the beach. The amenities were great, and perfect for relaxing and taking things a little bit slow. We would love to return!
Shaunessy J. Jul 2015
This place is perfectly situated 2 blocks from the beach on a main (often busy) street in Cannon Beach. It's sparsely decorated with beautiful, dark hardwood floors, a spacious kitchen, and big windows facing the beach. You do have to close the blinds mid-day though because those windows don't open & the direct sun really can heat up the place. There aren't a lot of windows that open in the place (I counted 4 in the entire 2 bedroom house). The backyard is not fenced so if you come with dogs, they will always have to be on leash. There is a nice deck with a grill, perfect for dining al fresco. I didn't find the mattresses comfortable but it's rare to find a rental with good beds. Great location in a wonderful beach town!
Krista K. May 2015
Great location and beautiful views. Other than 2 steps into the house (but there is a ramp at the front of the house), this was a very accessible property for elderly visitors. Very complete kitchen and comfortable furnishings.
Would stay here again.
PS We hope that Cooper is feeling better.

We celebrated our first year of parenthood with our little one and a few friends. The house is close the beach, has a spectacular view, and is not in the midst of the shops of Cannon Beach (though easily accessible via car or bike - or an ambitious walk). We loved every relaxing moment at this home. The kitchen is top notch and the bathroom was like a mini spa.
Selena H. Apr 2015
Can't beat the view! Easy to get anywhere by car or walking. Washer/dryer came in handy so you can limit your packing clothes. Take time to meet the neighbor, Jim, in the back and his dog Cooper.
Nathaniel S. Mar 2015
nice place, very close to the beach and my kids love it!
Patty B. Mar 2015
Loved this house as it was super clean, had updated furniture, excellent fireplace, and beautiful view of the beach from our front window. We actually got our children off of devices and put puzzles together. We had a really good time! Thanks
Diana . Jan 2015
This house is on the Main Street that runs through cannon beach. For dogs and small children this is a safety concern. In the winter less traffic. In the summer I would think twice.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review. We can understand how some traffic flow might make some guests nervous, but we do know that our guests love the easy and quick beach access from the home! Thank you for choosing Vacasa!

Cute, comfy, cozy, and clean! Picture perfect ocean getaway rental. One block off beach with living room view. Newly remodeled with upgraded shower. Overall a great experience with a highly easy rental process.

This is a GREAT house to rent in a great location with a great view. The gentleman that lives in the studio in the backyard was very nice and kept to his own. His dog, Cooper, is awesome too! We would most definitely stay here again!

The property was clean, reasonably well stocked; there is no television in terms of being able to watch programs. The driveway is very, very narrow making coming and going and loading and unloading the automobile very difficult. The location is very satisfactory with only a very short stroll to the beach. The Warren Pub and a wonderful bakery are easy walking distance. If you correct your advertising I would recommend this to a friend. We have come to the Oregon Coast for the last 8 years. We have stayed at more desirable locations.

This property surpassed all of our expectations. The location was fantastic, loved the view of the ocean and it's only 4 blocks away from the best latte you'll ever have.

I really preferred the location a little away from town. The deck and distant view of the ocean was nice. It was a short walk to the ocean and immediate view of Haystack Rock. While the cottage was on the main road, it was quiet and relaxing. The gas fireplace and stellar kitchen and bath really made the stay better than any hotel.

This spot is perfect! We had an amazing trip the only problem was that we didn't stay longer!! Our kids loved the beach and the house had everything we needed! Thank you for the wonderful time!!

Just want to mention that not only is there a guy living on the property and sharing the back porch and laundry but he also has a large dog so interaction with any pets you may have may be something to consider.

Good location in Cannon. Nice to sit and have coffee in the morning looking out at the waves...even better to walk to the rock each morning. It is also about a 20 minute walk into town.
No wifi was a bit of a hassle as we had not planned much so checking things like how late local attractions were open, etc. became more complicated.

Be sure to pack a hairdryer! There is not one anywhere in the house.

A bit unusual to have someone living in the back yard (in an apartment) but he was totally friendly as was his dog.

Overall I would recommend this location.

I stayed at the house for 10 days, and found it delightful! Staff was responsive to a minor problem that came up, and it was clean, quiet, and well equipped. No internet or tv, but a good DVD player with large screen. I highly recommend this place and Vacasa!
Manager response:
Thanks for the kind words and review about your stay. We really appreciate it!

This is a very ADA accessible house. It would be very easy to get around with a wheelchair. Lots of wide open spaces.
Great view. The driveway was tight with our SUV.

We have rented from Vacasa Rentals 2 times. They are a very professional and caring company. We liked getting the e-mails before , during and after our visit. It made us feel that you cared about our stay and provided excellent customer service. With so many choices in the Cannon Beach area, I would rent from this agency anytime, and would not hesitate to to rent the Modern House again.
Manager response:
Thanks for the great review. We appreciate the kind words and hope to be able to serve you again for your next vacation. Thank you!!

This was perfect for us as a three of us....our son is 8. Easy to get to the beach. It is south of the center of Cannon Beach but we preferred that. It is next to the road but there was no real noise issue. Would recommend!

We have been to Cannon Beach many times and staying at this property was perfect. We were traveling with our 1 year old baby boy and our chocolate lab and this house accommodated both of them really well. The layout of the property was great with space in the front room to relax and play while looking out to the ocean. The kitchen facilities were great and we enjoyed grilling on the barbecue on the back porch a couple of times while we were there. The two bedrooms gave us a place to put the baby down for naps and for the night in his own room, in our portable crib which we brought with us. Cannon Beach is such a great place to travel with a dog and we really appreciated the house being dog friendly with the small yard in the back. The only drawback in my opinion was no Internet or TV service but my wife saw this as a benefit. We would stay here again and I would absolutely recommend the place to anyone traveling to the area with a pet and small family.
Mary M. Jun 2013
We loved being so close to the beach and south of Cannon Beach. It was so peaceful and calm yet close to everything. We definitely will stay there again.

We had a wonderful weekend staying at this cozy home. It is so close to the beach and has very pretty ocean views.

My name is Carol Adams and we were originally reserved for the Monroe House. When we got there we were very upset with the cleanliness and condition of the unit. The closets were full of stuff, some of the owners belongings, vacuumm cleaners and the bathroom was terrible. The owner had all their stuff in the cabinets. The shower floor was cracked and moldy on the floor and ceiling. Neither one of us could take the moldy smell, and there was no place for us to put any of our things... It just did not seem cared for and we realize it is an old house but It really needed a lot of attention and serious cleaning and maintenance. The toilet top was cracked and the shower door had a note that told you that it leaked so be careful... (really). Anyway, we called your office and explained all of this to several of your employees, who were very professional and understanding. They were great and after a few discussions they made it possible for us to move to the Modern House unit on S. Hemlock. I can't tell you how much this made a difference in our vacation. None of your emplyees thought we were crazy or just complaining. We truelly are not that kind of folk. We have rented other places over the years and that was the worst situation we have ever been in!!! We just can't thank-you and Vacasa Rentals for turning this all around so quickly, efficiently and professionally. We loved the Modern house on Hemlock, we had a view, a block walk to the beach and you kept the rent the same. This is true customer service at it's best.!!! We would turn around and come right back to this unit, we really enjoyed it. We plan on renting a larger house from you when my family comes out to visit and we will make sure we use Vacas Rentals. Your great Employees, (Mary) and several others saved our vacation, Thank-you again. We will be back...
Manager response:
Thank you so much, Carol, for providing us all this information. We certainly want you to enjoy your vacation and we are dedicated to do whatever is possible to make that happen. As a result of your attention I want to let you know that we took a serious look at Monroe House and completely updated it. You will not believe the difference! We appreciate your understanding and we hope to see you again!

Love the layout and windows for our family.
Yan S. Oct 2012
Clean and fresh house.
Sue K. Oct 2012
I hope we can come back in warmer weather to experience the beach area more.
Cheryl R. Aug 2012
We just returned from a week in this beautiful home. It was very modern and absolutley spotless. The view from the front porch was breathtaking and the back porch was a delightful place for dining. The dual shower in the bathroom was amazing! You can pretty much see the ocean from every room in the house, even out the bathroom window.
The only thing that I did NOT like was the steady stream of people who came in and out of the small house behind the beach house. We are pretty private people and having a lot of people coming up and down the driveway and through the small carport was a little offputting. All in all it was great!
Barry & Marie D. Jun 2012
Great place for two couples very peaceful extreamly clean and well maintained. We enjoyed our stay would do it again.

The Hemlock House was the perfect place for our vacation with a 15-month old. The house is minimally furnished, and so there was no baby-proofing needed other than a few cabinet locks and outlet guards (which we brought with us.) We are accustomed to giving our son baths, but the large shower actually worked quite well for introducing him to a shower, as the tile floor was not slippery for him. The pictures speak for themselves--the house is clean, has a great view of the beach. The only unexpected part of the experience was learning that there are tenants that live in a studio apartment attached to the garage just behind the house.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review! The studio is attached to the detached garage so it has generally not been an interference, it is actually farther away than most neighbors to other homes in Cannon Beach but it is on the same double lot. Thanks again and we look forward to having you back!

This property was great, very clean and newly remodled. Loved the gas fireplace, double shower heads and ocean view. It is on a fairly busy street but has great access to the beach just a block down. We will stay here again! Vacasa was great to work with. We had a maintnace issue at the property that we originally booked and they were extremely responsive and accommodating. I will look at Vacasa for my next vacation rental!
