It may be older, but this place is lovely to visit. Absolutely the best view and access to the ocean, but nice fireplace and place to stay. Beds are not great, but they are upgrading it looks like.
I loved that we were right next to the ocean, with the sights, sounds and smells of the beach. I really LOVED being able to have a fire in the fireplace, watch the waves and relax. I also loved that it is a dog friendly setting(including the beach).
Hot tub was great, everything clean.
Looking forward to seeing it after remodel
Beach view and access to beach
-Nice Hot Tub on Deck (not in pics)
-Oceanfront (3 minute walk to beach)
-Oceanview (big window to view with morning coffee)
-You can bring your dogs (2 max)
-Softest towels ever
-Stocked with essentials (bath soap, hand soap and lotions were high quality)
-Cable with plenty of channels
-All the essential cookware/kitchen gadgets and cutlery/dishes
-A few small repairs needed: screen window broken in 1 room, 2 drawers broken inside and 1 missing handle, 1 piece of wood on deck missing with exposed nail (slightly behind hot tub), and the smoke detector went off for no reason right before we left the unit and we had to take the battery out
-The internet is really, really m, REALLY slow
- I had 1 bar of service with Verizon and my bf had no bars with Sprint
- We couldn’t get the DVD player to work, and trust me, with a 2 year old we tried.
- Mold on ceiling above shower
- A few cobwebs in corners of rooms
-Chips in a few of the plates and cups
-Not exactly sure where designated dog area was or where to take them to do their business
-Entering the parking lot was a bit scary as it’s right off of a byway (55MPH) and it’s busy. But this is true for all the other vacation rentals in the area too. It’s not impossible, just scary
-Parking area is narrow and steep, but not too bad
-1 bed is rather loud and neither are particularly comfortable
- The front doorknob is incredibly hard to twist open. This may be a Pro for some. Lol
- Carpet had a few little stains, but nothing too bad
- Although almost all the cleaning supplies were well-stocked, we used up the 1 trash bag we had within 2 days and there were no others in the room. We ended up using some small ones we had leftover from traveling.
Overall, we loved our stay. The bad things weren’t so bad and the good things were great. 8.5/10 would recommend to others and would stay again.
We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay, Angela. Thank you for providing us with feedback from your recent stay. We will be sure to bring your comments to the attention of the local staff. Thank you for staying with us, we hope to host you again soon!
Great location. Cottage is dated and needs upgrading but the location and view and hot tub make it worthy.
Pictures are accurate online. Wonderful location. Place is very clean but could use updating. Only a single sofa in living room, so more seating would be nice.
This cottage was located right on the beach and the view was gorgeous! We seen many sea lions and even a whale on our 2 day!:) The hot tub on the deck was amazing to soak in the sunset with a night cap:) There we’re hook ups for a washer and dryer but neither appliance, that would have been great to have available for our stay!
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Allison! We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed the fantastic views from this cottage. We apologize if this location does not offer laundry facilities, and we are happy to report that just four miles north is a laundromat service. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
What the house lacks in amenities (no laundry, no Netflix/dvds) it is totally made up for by the beautiful beach and hot tub. We spent our entire trip going back and forth between the 2 and had the best time. Kitchen works for basic cooking needs, house has the necessary things for a good trip. Lock on the front door takes a couple tries to figure out, but works.
Older property and they are in process of remodeling, but clean and comfortable. Loved soaking in the hot tub while watching the ocean. Would love to come back.
We love being right in the beach and the hot tub was amazing
Simple, comfortable, and convenient. A great view and close to some of fav spots, seal rock, Cape perpetua.....
Loved the woodstove and the hot tub! Very relaxing weekend.
Loved the 2nd time visit. View, Hot tub, and Fireplace make this worth it. Decor is dated and the kitchen is limited.
We loved the proximity to the beach and the hot tub. We also appreciated that they allowed pets.
We visit often and again, loved our stay. Great location!
Hot tub on the deck, over looking the ocean, what could be better?? Perfect amount of space for us and our two dogs. Will definitely come back.
Love this place! Quiet beach front home with fire place, hot tub over looking the ocean, and nearly floor to ceiling windows. Kitchen and bathroom are simple, but efficient. Easy to find, miles of sand beaches in either direction.
This unit is FANTASTIC!! Great for a family vacation!
We loved the easy access to the beach. The house is quite charming.
We had a wonderful time at the Cape Cod Cottages. It was like home away from home!! We can’t wait to come back.
Great location, unbeatable view of the ocean and loved the hot tub on the deck. Unit 10 is a tad dated but basically has everything you need.
The cottage was nice and cozy with plenty of room for three adults and two dogs. The kitchen was small, but had adequate room for simple cooking and included the essentials (dishes, utensils, etc), as well as a coffee pot, coffee grinder, toaster, microwave, and full size refrigerator and oven. Both the internet and cable worked most of the time which was pretty good for the coastline.
Great location right near the stump on Stump Beach. The oceanfront balcony cannot be beat, but the interior is getting a bit grubby and careworn. I know the owners have plans to refurbish, but for now it is not a great choice for fastidious travellers.
Location! Beautiful view from kitchen and living room. If a just a little customer service in inspecting and doing minor repairs, this could and would have been perfect! We loved the place but hated the lack of cleanliness and unsafe back deck fence.
We are sorry to see our guest disliked any part of their stay and will work to rectify these things. We have scheduled a deep clean, and maintenance is scheduled to work on the fence. Thanks!
The house is old and has seen a lot of wear and tear. The Locks are a little tricky to get to work. However everything else worked great and the kids loved the hot tub. The sofa's were comfy. Very close to the beach. I would for sure rent it again.
We have stayed in this apt. before and have enjoyed it. The addition of a hot tub on the deck really made it awesome! When we got there there was a huge lack of cookware(pots and pans) to prepare our food and we always bring food to cook meals. When I called Vacasa, Johnnie from Vacasa came in minutes and dropped off a brand new box of cookware!!! Now that's service! She told us of Vacasa's plans to upgrade the Cape Cod Cottages. While we are happy to hear that, we hope that the improvements enhance the property without losing the charm and history of the place. The wood stove/fireplace and the knotty pine walls, old pieces of furniture like dressers, tables, etc make the place what it has been all of these years we have been coming. New mattresses, flooring etc. would be great.
We spent six days here and had a wonderful time. The house is pretty bare bones but clean and comfortable, with a deck right on the beach and beautiful views. The only items inconveniently lacking were wine glasses and a coffee maker. The beach is huge and open for walking in both directions, and very quiet - not at all crowded. It was gray and foggy throughout our visit, but we didn't mind that. On the whole, a great spot for a peaceful getaway.
Great view, fantastic beach access. Great location. We were very happy with the place. Beds could’ve been a little more comfortable but other than that well worth it!
Loved the constant view/sounds of the ocean at all times. Made for a peaceful trip.
It was nice to relax in the hot tub while enjoying the ocean view.
You literally can’t get any closer to the ocean for a very reasonable rate! It was in a great location a litttle but out of town but easy to zip around all the little towns around you. We would definitely stay here again!
Simple accommodations, a little rough; excellent views of a quiet beach. Hot tub was a delight. Not much happening in Waldport, (except the Hilltop bistro cafe) but convenient to Yachats and many natural wonders. Friendly local people.
Delightful beach, quiet, cool, clean!
Fabulous restaurant in Yachats down the road!
Although the view is lovely the home is not. If you think you might need something (a satisfactory mattress, a window shade, salt and pepper) you'd better plan on bringing it with you. The view IS lovely but be prepared for urine stains on the carpet, shades that don't open and close, etc. etc. I feel badly leaving this review but, on the other hand, don't want others to fall into the same trap that we did.
The cottage was wonderful. Being that close to the ocean was amazing with easy access and almost private beach. The private hot tub on the deck was a great way to end the day and watch the sunset.
We always enjoy going to the cottages to unwind. It’s become a tradition we look forward to every year. One stay and a walk on the beach and you’ll be hooked too!
The views were amazing! The cottage was comfortable and you totally can just sit back, relax and enjoy the view with your four legged companion. Did not turn on the TV once! The beach is great for flying a kite.
I loved being able to look at the beach from the living room. Great customer service and easy to access. Definitely will be staying again.
Great view, comfy and cozy...easy to relax and unwind! We will definitely be back!
This is a great location and the House was awesome!! Will definitely stay here again schedule permitting!
Great homey spot, front door code didn’t work but thankfully the garage door was unlocked. Other than that it was a really cute spot.
We are sorry to see this guest struggled with the code. We have not had any other issues with this, but we'll keep an eye on it.
We made a lot of suggestions to property management.
Location was great!
Cleanliness inside was great!
We loved staying in this little cottage! It feels very private - with the windows open we could hear the ocean, but not the traffic from the highway. The kitchen had everything we needed . The space is cozy and comfortable. The view is amazing! There were extra blankets and pillows for the hidabed and cuddling on the couch. All the little details were taken care of ... matches for the fire, dish soap provided, shampoo, conditioner, soap, and even a hair dryer in the bathroom. We hope to stay here again soon!
Having stayed in many of the Cape Cod Cottages over the last 34 years, I can say that cabin 10 might be my favorite. The location is quiet, the views are wonderful and it is roomy and comfortable. With an upgrade in the beds, it would absolutely be my go to place to stay every time I am on the coast!
We loved Unit #10, it is right on the beach with a spectacular view, rustic cottage with a wood fireplace makes it cozy to just sit and watch the ocean. Stairs to the beach were easy to go up and down, made for walks on the beach so accessible.
House is perfect for 2 to 4 people. The new couches are very nice, we enjoyed out stay.
For the price point this place is hard to beat. While not a luxury rental with all the amenities, the view and proximity to the beach more than make up for the lack of creature comforts.
I hadn't been to Cape Cod Cottages since my eldest was a baby. She is 14 now. It was as I remembered - not fancy, but very comfortable and right on the beach. The whole family enjoyed our stay very much. We will be back often.
Bring your kids , bring your dogs but don't bring millenials.
We have never been disappointed coming here. My only concern now is that if this little secret gets let out, I will never be able to book it because it is nice, and everyone will want to partake...but, I would hate to deprive anyone of the experience because of my being selfish. Anyone reading this, enjoy the moments in time, they go by so quickly....this is a cool spot!
We enjoyed our stay at Cape Cod cottages Unit 10. It was furnished comfortably and of course, the view was magnificent. We truly like it because we could bring our two dogs and play on the beach. Yes, we will be coming back again soon.
Can’t beat the location or the price. House is a little bit dated but still quite comfortable. Different couches from what the picture show, very comfortable. Bed somewhat uncomfortable, but for $45 a night absolutely no complaints!
This was one of the best family vacations my family has taken. The place is very clean and updated. The beds and couches were very comfortable. The deck is just beautiful to sit out on. They give you plenty of towels. The kitchen has all the basics to cook just about anything!!!
Sitting on the couch in front of the fire place watching the ocean was so very comforting. My dogs felt very welcomed. It is a very dog friendly place. When you are cooking a meal you can just look out into ocean. The view and sound of the ocean is priceless. No matter what time of year it is a comfortable temperature. There were miles of desolate beach. It seemed as if it were a private beach. Couldn't have asked for a better time!!!!
Roomy house right on the beach. Great view from #10, nice to have a garage.
This is a great house with an awesome view of the ocean. The beach is beautiful! Very cozy and comfy place..feels like home. We will be back.
Cozy lil spot , beautiful coastal views
These are great cabins ~ right on the beach with excellent views. I prefer Waldport as it is less hectic and populated than some other areas. The accommodations are quaint but comfortable. Highly recommend!
Great beach location . Lots of room in this rental. Fun time and nice weather.
Pleasant beach cabin with amazing views and easy access to enormous beach.
it was good place to stay
Can't find a better view anywhere on the coast...even though fees are high and property needs maintenance!
The view is excellent, but the accommodations were not.
I love the Waldport area. It's quiet and not so over run by tourists. Cape Perpetual is a few miles away and is breathtaking. Newport is 15 miles and offers everything a person could want. Cape Cods prices were half of anywhere else on the coast.
Although other reviews said the place needed updating, there were also people who said the property was good so I was not worried. The place was ok for a weekend but a longer stay is not recommended. There was no kitchen space, no dishwasher, no washer /dryer. Everything but the newer sleeper sofa needs to be replaced.
We are in the process of making upgrades to these units and are excited to share them with our guests!
We were here for 3 nights and came in from the north. We arrived late and it was nice to be able to go straight to the room and relax. The beach is right there for all the walking , wading and swimming you could want. A day trip south offers more options than you can utilize and headed back north gives you more time to enjoy the area attractions like the lighthouse, tide pools, boats, etc. Each night was an easy drive back to the cottage.
our stay was perfect at cape cod cottages we knew going in that they were older but that was ok we planned on not being there much but we found we spent a lot of time there the cabin was very clean and had every thing for a great stay right down to sand toys for my 5 year old I would recommend staying here for anybody especially a family with young children the beach is really out the back door and very quiet!!
What I most enjoy is falling asleep to the crashing of the waves. My whole family loved our time there after a two week road trip - it was a great place to relax and do nothing but look at the ocean, walk along the beach and enjoy the small towns near Cape Cod cottages. Sitting on the deck having coffee or having dinner at the table with an absolutely beautiful view, even in the rain, was just what the family needed. Am looking forward to booking the same unit next year and including our four-legged girl as well.
It was like being home away from home as we had a full kitchen and two made beds w/ an extra blanket. Loved having a fireplace and most of all the view of the ocean w/ very easy access.
We stayed in unit #10 for the weekend. There were five adults and the cabin was spacious enough that we never felt cramped. #10 is located right on the beach with a breath taking view of the pacific and incoming weather. We all agreed we found a new favorite place. Cheers
We arrived Sunday about 4:00pm, our entry code did not give access thankfully a maintenance staff was on site and gave us a correct code. The cottage was clean and warm. The 2 bedrooms had plenty of bedding, the futon in the main room did not have any bedding at all, it was a good thing we had brought a couple blankets along. There was no laundry facilities or dishwasher as stated in the web-site. Dishes and cooking utensils were very minimal bring extra. We did however enjoy our 5 day stay.
Very cozy with a beautiful view.
This rental has an incredible view and superior beach access! It is a bit dated, but it is so roomy and comfortable we did not mind a bit!
My sister, her daughter and I decided to take my 84 year old mom and friend to coast for the weekend. I called Vacasa and identified our criteria; oceanview, easy beach access, affordable. They helped us to narrow it down and then gave us 24 hours to make changes without any charges. Great registration process!
We enjoyed the view from the house immensely! Loved watching the waves, fishing boats, saw seals and a whale. Enjoyed easy access to the beach, walking on the beach, went bird watching at Old Walport Bay, saw an Eagle at Seal Rock, great dinner in Newport. The place was clean, beds comfortable, livingroom and kitchen had great views while sitting and visiting. May want to bring an extra blanket or two and some games or DVDs. Kitchen has the basic needs met.
We all enjoyed a very nice weekend! And it is likely we will book with Vacasa again and stay Cape Cod #10 or #11.
Very cozy, loved the view, easy beach access.
I really enjoyed this place. Cant wait to come back.
We just spent our 3rd week-long stay, and what a great time we had. The cottage was great, and the surrounding beach area is perfect for long walks.
Cape Cod Cottages are very conveniently located. Waldport is a small, yet cute, town and Newport isn't too far north nor is Yachats too far south. The picture window is fantastic; the dogs just sat in front and gazed for hours. Lovely wood fireplace and a perfectly sized kitchen, too. It isn't modern, but it has great character and is literally steps from the beach. The deck that faces the beach is also lovely. I highly recommend this spot. It is very reasonably priced, as well.
We had a great time! The beaches were wonderful and our time was quiet and peaceful. We look forward to staying again someday.
This was a decent place for the price. Great view of the ocean. The huge stain on the carpet was a bit off-putting! Was nice to have the garage to pack & unpack when it was raining but garage door broken & wouldn't close which they did tell us before hand. Could have been cleaner. Nice to have our dog with us and be out on the deck with us as it was enclosed.
Reservation process was smooth & easy. Extending our stay an extra day was just a quick phone call. Room was very dated, as was the exterior of the cabin. Could really used some upgrades - new carpet, etc.. Bring your own Kitchen knives!!!
This place needs some TLC. Although it's in a great spot with easy access to the beach, it clearly hasn't been updated in 30 or more years. It smells old and doesn't have much in the way of niceties. For instance. The card table on the back deck is from like the 60s. And there's no BBQ on the premises. Just thinking. It wouldn't take much to make this place worthy of a repeat visit. Until then. We'll plan a trip elsewhere.
We appreciate hearing this feedback and will keep it in mind.
Perfect location! Unit 10 is awesome, nice having a garage and the beds were very comfy!
Loved the ability to bring my dog with us. Great access to the beach and all the amenities you could need. Enjoyed our stay.
We enjoyed our stay. Beach is unbeatable.
If you are looking to get away from it all, this is a great place to stay. Quiet with lots of low traffic beach access. These rustic, no frills cottages let you take your shoes off and act like a kid again.
We were pleasantly plaesed with our stay at Cape Cod Cottages. The view from our room and deck were breath taking! There are all the ammenities you need to stay and forget you aren't at your own home. Full set of cookware to have delicious meals all day long. Just bring your food and cook it there. Beds are very comfortable. From the main living area full ocean views! So quiet all you hear is the ocean. Our family will absolutly be back to Cape Cod Cottages!
No problems except that we could not get the DVD player to work.
We are sorry to see that there was a problem with the DVD player. There are instructions provided on how to switch to different consoles connected to the TV, and the batteries in the DVD remote have been changed so that everything works.
Quiet, relaxing, beautiful view of the beach. Loved every minute. Worth the money.
Felt however, that outside of building needs upgrades and more TLC of the original effort and construction that the original owners must have put into the property.
The views were gorgeous, the beach access was unbeatable, and the beach was not at all crowded. We had a great time!
Cabin 10 is rustic, homey and private. Very nice having a garage. The unobstructed view/access is just awesome!
We were very happy with this rental. The location right on the beach was awesome! And we loved that the beach had very few people on it, compared to the popular beaches in the bigger towns. We will be coming back for sure:)
Great spot for a family getaway and affordable!
I stayed at Cape Cod cottages probably 20 years ago. They look exactly the same. It's not fanciness that makes them special. It's the location and the home-like feel.
Beach view and access is wonderful. Family of five had a great stay.
I rented this cottage for a night for my lovely friends birthday and it was perfect. If only we could have stayed longer. It's essentially your place, just moved to the coast. Oh and the fireplace!! $5 for a bundle of wood at Rays 10 min away. Ocean, fire, hot chocolate, a lovely couple of friends. You're gonna feel heavenly.
We loved cabin 10 right by the beach a wood stove it was perfect!! Great beds!!
The place was great , rustic , good beach access , fireplace , just the getaway we needed. We would stay again and would recommend to others .
The carpet was extremely dirty with stains and fresh spots which appeared to be animal feces. We paid for a late checkout, but received a very rude note from the housekeeper that said "checkout at 11 doesn't mean 11:30". This was taken care of by Vacasa, but the filthy carpet made us not even want to stay there. We felt like it was the biggest waste of money we have ever spent on a "vacation".
Thank you for taking the time to share your review with us. We apologize that you did not receive better service from housekeeping; we have followed-up with our housekeeping team regarding proper cleaning and interactions with our guests. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Very enjoyable stay had a great time!!
Our family rented 7 of the units at Cape Cod cottages for a family get together. It was great for everyone to be together but still have their own space in the different units. The cottages are in a great location right on the ocean. It felt like we were the only people on the beach for miles most of the time.
If you want a place to getaway from it all, this is a great place to go. Be sure to rent a boat and go crabbing in Waldport and clamming at low tide!
This is NOT a super-fancy hotel. This is a rustic cottage with an amazing view stumbling distance to the beach. It was clean, it was cozy, it was equipped with basic cooking necessities, and it had two comfy adirondack chairs on the deck. The only improvement we could suggest would be trying to squeeze a queen-sized bed in one of the rooms.
This place is a real gem if you like peaceful, awesomely beautiful pure Oregon Coast experience away from a crowd. I took photos to plan a return trip with my wife. Standing in the living room you can perceive the curve of the horizon
although the units are new, the inside was very clean and fresh. It looked as if there had been some updates recently. When we arrived we found that it looked like the back door had been broken open. We called Vacasa and they indicated they would take care of it. We were still able to lock the back door so it was not a problem. The beds and bedding were wonderful.
The location and view was phenomenal. Only a few steps to the beach. Walport and Yachats offered interesting shops and a great assortment of restaurants. We will definitely come back.
We stayed in unit 10 and it was fabulous and very private. Got to watch storms roll through and then walk the beach. Beach views from living and kitchen area, wood stove with plenty of wood provided and very friendly staff. We found the best bakery in Waldport on Mill St., and the best chowder in Yachats at the Drift Inn.
It was a great, comfortable, relaxing stay . definitely affordable. My family will definitely go back
Thanks for this great review and recommendation! We can't wait for you to visit Vacasa again!
First stayed here in 1987, and we are still enjoying it. Best value on the coast for many years, IMHO. However, there is a major construction upgrade underway, so that will probably change.
We are so happy that you have a tradition to stay at the Cape Cod Cottages with Vacasa. We hope that you will love it also when we get some necessary upgrades done.
The weather was absolutely gorgeous and we knew it would be so we booked this stay just days before we arrived and was so pleased to get this unit right on the beach and be able to walk without any wind or rain...just fabulous sun rises and sunsets!!
Room was great! It was clean and really liked the view. I would definitely come here again!
Great View, if you are a chef bring your favorite knife or odd kitchen gadget, but basics are covered (barely). I loved the minimalist approach, comfy places to sit and lounge, wood stove, basic cable, comfy beds and pillows. strong shower lots of towels... not luxurious but clean and comfortable, we happen to like it a bit rustic. New windows fantastic but a wide trim between the upper large and lower opening windows is at eye level when on the couches... but can't be closer to the beach, very nice. Economical, warm and comfy and for the price very nice for us. bring movies/games/cards if you like that stuff.
Super cozy and cleanly property, great view, will come again if I am up there again
This is a wonderful "old-fashioned" unit. It features a terrific deck with a view of the ocean and great beach access. Even though the unit was older, it offered a functional kitchen, large living room with ample space for meals, a great shower, and comfortable beds. It turned out that my brother had stayed here (in a different unit) 20 years ago. He liked Cape Cod Cottages then and likes it now. Our family will definitely return.
Overall if you want a relaxing time, Waldport is the beach for you. With a shallow depth of water, tide pools abound in the area and did not yet mention it is not that rocky not like the other beaches I've been to.
