Everything was fine with the house except for the following:
The bottom right window on the north side of the living room west of the slider is broken and won't close all the way so there is a draft that blows into the room. There needs to be more than one dish towel in the kitchen. Also there were no coffee filters in the kitchen so we went and bought some. We just left them there for the next guests. And we had to unplug the drain in the bathtub downstairs.
Thank you so much for a wonderful week at the beach. What a luxury to have four bedrooms and bathrooms and be able to walk to the beach from the house. The views from the house are just stunning and watching the sunset from the deck or even from the kitchen window is amazing.
The views of the ocean, rock, and cape were perfect. The house had plenty of room for everyone during our large family gathering. Fairly easy walk to the beach. That said the kitchen could use an upgrade including the utensils and plates.
The location was great. Far enough away from down town, so less people on the beach, Beautiful Sunsets!, and. great beach access For our family, it was so great having 4 bathrooms and the bedrooms, and the big space downstairs for our grandchildren. We certainly were not asked to do much cleanup, but i am not sure we have stayed in a Vacasa home before so that may be the way they do it in all their homes.
There were some minor issues that could be changed. I did not like having all the puzzles etc. stored in the Master bedroom closet upstairs, and the sliding door of that closet had a problem that my husband tried to fix. The puzzles could be stored downstairs so guest could use that closet for clothes. There is no access to the garage which is fine, but no where to store the boxes for kitchen supplies or suitcases which i don't like to have sitting out all weekend. It wasn't perfect, but fit our family needs very nicely. I would certainly go back again, and we all had a great time celebrating my husband's birthday and Father's Day. Thank-you so very much for sharing your house with us.
We had been waiting months for our family trip to Pacific City to stay in the Ocean Front Sunsets house and then COVID-19 hit. We then had to wait 3 more months and somehow get everyone’s schedules coordinated once again. We did it, Vacasa Rental was terrific to work with through all of it and this house did not disappoint. I will definitely rebook it at some point.
It is a perfect house to gather the family...adults, kids and dogs! 4 big size bedrooms, 4 ba, open floor plan and a big kitchen that is well stocked. Just a few steps to the beach and a great view from the house. The house was clean and Vacasa was great to work with. 👍🏻👍🏻❣️ Thank you for the opportunity to use this house. We LOVED it.
The view and peace & quiet are wonderful. Would recommend a couple of additional kitchen chairs so you can seat 8. This home has so many extra utensils and cooking pans that make feeding your family easy. This was our second stay at this property and we’ll be back again. Thanks for the memories!
We had a great time, loved the house and the close beach. It’s was so great to have our family together and have everything we needed. Thank you!!
Because we encountered dirty sheets on one of the beds when we arrived, I had to give the Vacasa house only 4 stars. Other than that small oversight, the house was very clean. I loved the spaciousness of the house, the gorgeous views of the sky, the visiting deer and that we nearly had the beach to ourselves. I found Vacasa's emails particularly helpful; they concisely and timely informed me of everything I needed to know.
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay! We are sorry that you arrived to dirty sheets on one of the beds. We do have a 24/7 guest services team that we can always be reached at, and we would have been able to replace those sheets for you. Thank you so much for your feedback, we hope to host you again soon!
House perfect lay out for visit with kids Lots of room to have fun and safe area for kids outside. Kitchen was lovely. Also the deck was great for meals and relaxing
Perfectly situated, clean, and well-appointed. Room for a very large family or several couples. Absolutely the best stay we have had on the Oregon Coast!
This house has a very nice floor plan, accommodating 8 adults comfortably. Great views from the deck and super convenient beach access. It would have been nice if the dining table had seating for 8, but with the bar at the end of the kitchen counter, we were able to make it work. Speaking of the kitchen, they have a excellent array of pots/pans/knives/etc but were short on utensils, cups, and small bowels. Also, no grinder for your coffee beans and no wine glasses.
We are working on stocking up our kitchen inventory. We are glad to see our guest was otherwise happy with the home and location. Thank you!
fabulous location and plenty of room- but house is in need of some serious TLC.
Great location and living space.
This is our third year of riding and it was our best so far. The house was comfortable.
Our family had a great experience. The house was clean and had many appliances for your use. We would rent this house again.
A Comfortable 4 bedroom, 4 bath house on the sand dunes with direct access to the beach with magnificent views from the kitchen and living rooms. The condition of the house has seen better days, and is a bit over priced compared to others but it is clean, warm and comfortable and the location is outstanding.
Perfect place for eight+ people. You can’t top the ocean view and convenience of the private access to the beach. Large kitchen and comfortable beds. Plenty of parking.
This is a great location, just yards from the beach with windows viewing a full panorama of the Pacific Ocean. Easy to get to but not in the midst of the crowded parts of the beach. Much more relaxing than condos or hotels.
The local market has a good variety of food and supplies, drive a half hour south to Lincoln City to reach large supermarkets as an alternative.
We enjoyed our stay at the property and hope to get back to Pacific City again.
Twenty-two of us rented three different houses and ours was by far the best for family gatherings with a huge family room, huge kitchen and unbeatable views! We will definitely be renting this house again!
This was a very spacious and well equipped beach front house. It was quiet and peaceful. The closest large town is Tillamook, but no need to go that far for groceries - there's a Thriftway less than half a mile away, in Pacific city.
We had a wonderful and relaxing long weekend here and enjoyed all the space.
Even with 7 twenty-somethings downstairs we had plenty of room. The kitchen was perfect for this hungry bunch.
We had ten family members stay here and it was very roomy and comfortable. We loved the beach access and the large kitchen. One note on the location: the house is set up off the beach and the access is an extremely steep climb in deep, soft sand. This would be very hard for someone with mobility issues.
nice for having lots of people, but I would pack some extra blankets and cooking utensils as well as camping chairs.
Carpet needs to be replaced, hated to even walk bare footed on it. Lots of stains and smells. The deck is very unsafe, rotten in places, you get slivers from the floor and railing, it is very unstable and in the front deck one whole section swings back and forth and a child could fall right through. You would also expect that on the ocean you would have furnishings for cooking crab, but no crab pots and the stove would not be able to accommodate it anyways. No mop to clean up. We cleaned out vacuum since it was overflowing. Dog or cat hair all over the furniture and futon. Nothing is clean. Windows are dirty, floors are dirty. I pulled out the bottom drawer on oven, and the pan had a 1/4" layer of dust on it. Then I took the drawer out, and there was dirt, broken glass, garbage and food under the over. When pulling out other drawers they were all the same. Disgusting. Dog/cat hair all over furniture so we hand vacuumed it. Don't be fooled by the beach access, if you have anyone elderly it will be difficult for them to get up and down the hills to the beach. Basically it needs a lot of work to make it a nice beach house.
We are sorry to see this guest was dissatisfied with their experience. The carpets and upholstery will be professionally cleaned as soon as possible, and we are looking to get the carpet replaced at the end of the busy season. The owner is already working with a contractor on getting the decking replaced and refurbished. The vacuum has been replaced, and we will soon have the necessities for cooking crab. We have had housekeeping deep clean the kitchen, inspected all all amenities, and ensured all cookware is cleaned. The small sand dunes mentioned in the review are part of the Bob Straub State Park and cannot be manipulated to create easier access. Thank you!
The house was well equipped with everything we needed. The was plenty of room in the house to spread out and relax even with kids. The beach area is amazing with miles and miles of beach to explore. Access to the beach is a perfect distance. We would stay here again without a doubt. I would recommend booking a fishing trip with Pacific City Fishing while in the area. We had an awesome experience!
For the price this house was an excellent deal. You can't beat the location- there were multiple times were the only people you could see on the beach. We saw whales and sea lions. The house is well furnished and stocked with the bare minimum for kitchen pots/pans/dishes but is mostly very clean and comfortable.
Negatives- both the microwave and the coffee pot were broken. The microwave was labeled as "out of order" but we had to find out the hard way at 6 am with the coffee maker. The kitchen only came with one dishwasher detergent pod, so if you plan on doing more than one load of dishes you will need to purchase dishwasher detergent or bring your own. There was plenty of laundry soap though :) The garbage from the renters just prior to us filled both cans and there were multiple bags on the ground as well as broken chairs. If we had needed any, there would not have been any room in the garbage outside until about three days into our stay. The couches had something (food, I am assuming) ground into the cushions but other than that the house was very clean.
We're glad the guest enjoyed the home and it's location. The coffee maker has been replaced and the microwave has been deemed unrepairable and will be replaced very soon. Thank you.
This a spacious house, well designed and is located in a beautiful setting with views of Haystack Rock and surrounding shoreline. However, on our arrival we found notes telling us that the microwave and coffee maker were not working. We also found that a stove-top element was also not working further limiting the usefulness of the kitchen. Not an ideal situation for a sizable group on a self catering break. Windows could have done with a proper cleaning especially as the ocean view is a maiin attraction of the house. Top dollar charged but standards did not match the fee. Caveat emptor!
We apologize for the inconveniences this guest experienced. The coffee maker has been replaced and the stove-top element has been repaired. The microwave is scheduled for a repair, and we have suggested to the owner to have a window cleaner come to the home. Thanks!
Just a great place to stay! We'll be back! Hopefully the neighbor wont be so grumpy☺
Love the location and the house was just as pictured. Very clean, uncluttered and tons of space. Great ocean view, short trek over the dune to access the beach. All, including our beach loving dog, were very comfortable.
The deck is the spot to be! Spectacular sunsets, whale watching, relaxing.
The beach is steps away and it goes on forever!
We loved this house
We were all happy to spend our spring break at Vacasa
Couldn't be easier to play n the beach or watch the waves snd sunset. Open the slider and you get the full deal with the sound of surf!
This house was the perfect layout and location for our extended family's long weekend. A stellar view of Haystack Rock and the ocean waves was an impressive backdrop!
Four good-sized bedrooms and four bathrooms gave everyone plenty of space to spread out and sleep comfortably, and the large livingroom with beautiful views was a great place to relax. Some of the beds were a bit on the firm side, but everyone slept fairly well (including all three children along on the trip). The kitchen is simply but adequately furnished, with lots of room for multiple cooks to inhabit the space at one time.
In the past we've stayed at 'nicer' properties than this one (we did run into a maintenance issue or two, such as very slow Internet or circuit breakers we couldn't access to turn back on), but we've always had a hard time finding a property with enough comfortable bedrooms to host multiple families in one space so no one gets stuck in a bunkbed room. This home fit the bill perfectly on that front, and we'll likely be back again.
Outdoor activities abound, including beach walking or hiking at Bob Straub State Park just down the street. It's nice to be tucked away farther from Hwy 101 while still having some smaller shops and a grocery store right nearby. If you're looking for a low-key large home, and want amazing views and beach access, this is it!
Our family (My wife and I, my wife's parents, and our two adult sons) had a wonderful stay at this beautiful home. The view is breathtaking and the beach is just steps away.... A couple minute drive to the Pelican Pub or Stimulus Espresso which are right on the beach with Haystack Rock right in front of you. It's just a short drive north to Tillamook or south to Lincoln City, Depoe Bay, or Newport. We had a great vacation and are already making plans to be back next year.
I had a great time with my friends. We had 9 people in the home and it was a great fit. The only issue was the 4 car limit and the overall cleanliness of the home. It wasn't terrible by any means but it definitely what you would expect from a home that is being rented out. The 4 car limit was hard, because we had 9 people, and most drove separate so it was a challenge having that 4 car limit when we needed just 5 cars, especially since there was plenty of room in the drive way to fit all 5.
Great time with the friends though, it was really close to the beach and the trip into town was very short and very scenic.
Would definitely recommend if they fix some of the stuff around the house. Minor improvements would have really bumped my score up!
My siblings and I gathered here after both our dad and mom passed away to share stories and start to heal. It had plenty of room for us to be together yet we could go to our own places for quiet time. Friends and family dropped by to visit and there was plenty of room. The view was amazing and Mom made sure I got a beautiful sunset on the last night.
Well appointed property in great location.
This was hands down, the best beachside rental I've stayed in. It had plenty of room for 3 families and two dogs, a greT layout and being a little out of the main area, was quiet, yet close enough to be down there if you wAnnex to be.
There is plenty of room for four couples, and the kitchen as well stocked with quality pans and utensils. The view is gorgeous, and you can easily walk to town.
Would love to come back here with 3 other couples for a fun vacation. Awesome view of the ocean, beautiful dunes, trials through Bob Straub, and beaches and local activities were fun and varied.
What a special week we had in this home -- the view, the weather and lots of room to accommodate seven people, comfortable beds, spacious living/dining room and kitchen. Being able to bring two dogs was a plus. We loved the small town feeling with many offerings nearby. Thank you, we will return!
Right on the beach. Beautiful view of Haystack. Major cleanliness issues requiring us to do hours of clean up. Wet towels in closet, sheets in dryer. Note, no cover for anything like bicycles when raining. For the cost expected much better conditions.
We sincerely apologize that this guest did not arrive to a cleaner home; had we been notified we would have sent housekeeping to rectify the situation as quickly as possible.
It's a lovely home with plenty of room for the eight of us. And the location is wonderful with great views and beach access. Unfortunately the beds in all rooms but the master suite were extra firm which our guests didn't find comfortable. Also the outdoor grill was in sad shape.
Being right on the ocean was a big plus. big kitchen was good for more than one person preparing meals.
Beds were very comfy.
Wonderful location. Excellent views, particularly from the kitchen! Roomy layout. Seemed the interior was recently painted. Decks could use some work, but that did not affect how much we enjoyed the sunsets from the deck every evening. We will definitely be back!
Good, spacious beach house that accommodated our group of 10. Inside was clean and nicely maintained. Out side of house is in pretty sad shape. Back deck needs repairs and some of the windows are difficult to open. Both trash cans were also completely full when we arrived on Friday so there was nowhere for our trash to go.
We apologize that the exterior of the home was not in better condition. This home now has a new Property Manager who has promised to address these issues at the first possible opportunity.
This home was just perfect for our family of ten. Everyone was comfortable. We enjoyed the peacefulness we had here. Everyone enjoyed the views and being able to play by the ocean. We even had a visit from a whale and her calf who spent the whole day just off shore feeding. What a joy to see. Also the seals just off shore too and not to leave out the deer that came to visit a few times. The location was great as we could go either north or south and see all the wonderful sites and get into the tourist mix then return to our peaceful place away from it all. Truly a great place. The little town of pacific city provided all we needed for places to eat and shop as well. House was clean and comfortable. If I had one suggestion it would be to put a short hose onto the outside faucet for people to use when cleaning off from the beach. It might even help the siding on the house. What a wonderful experience. We loved it.
Spectacular view of the ocean, listen to the waves, catch a glimpse of the seal in the surf, watch the deer eat wild strawberries outside the back door. Easy beach access. Soft sand for barefoot walks down the beach. Great wind for flying kites.
If you want a quiet town, Pacific City is it. Small grocery store provides everything you need. Lincoln City is close enough for a visit, but you might not want to leave your beach!
The home is set up nicely for family gatherings, has a beautiful view and is nicely furnished. We truly enjoyed our stay.
Our family, 5 adults, 3 very young children had a wonderful stay. The house worked out well. Assuming rain, we had chosen this house for its extra space on the main floor, the big deck and the view of the ocean & beach. The weather was amazing, so we weren't inside as much as anticipated, but still enjoyed having room for the toddler to run and the preschooler to do crafts. The deck was great for blowing bubbles and for grilling. The kitchen had lots of dishes and pans, plenty of counter spaces for several people to be in there at once. All of the interior has been upgraded and was as good or better than described. We did buy a gate to put at the top of the stairs. I do wish that could be an add-on when renting since most of us flew in and couldn’t bring everything. We did the first major grocery shopping in Tillamook, but Chester’s, the local grocery store, had plenty for later supplies. The location near the state park to the south and the long beach & tide pools to the north were great. Everyone did lots of beach time.
Great location just off the beach.
The house was great. Clean and comfortable and the view was fabulous. Lots of room, kitchen had everything you needed to cook.
We had a wonderful vacation and are already making plans to rent this house again in the near future. The house was immaculate and the view was stunning! We anxiously look forward to our next stay!
We enjoyed the very spacious home with a great view of the ocean, and easy beach access. However, the dishwasher was loose , making it difficult to open. Also, there is no place to hang coats, or put wet sandy clothing and shoes when it is raining.
Thanks you so much for sharing your feedback with us. We have let our property manager know about the dishwasher and they will make sure it gets tightened. We appreciate the suggestion of the coat hook and will see if we can get one added to the home for our guests going forward. Its great to see that you had such a good time and we are excited to have you back soon.
We enjoyed this house.
The dunes, the ocean, and the space.
This property was amazing! More then enough room for my family. We had my in-laws, my parents, my husband and 3 small children. I only wish the weather would have been nicer, as it rained and was very windy the entire time. Over all it was great!
The house is comfortable, well furnished, and roomy. Its location is excellent and Pacific City is an interesting area.
The house was beautiful, from the outside it looks pretty run down, but don't let that fool you, it is beautiful inside! The views from upstairs living areas are amazing! Very quiet neighborhood, not a lot of traffic.
A prime location, 50 yards from the beach but not right in the middle of the busiest part. An easy walk to the north end of the beach or to the store, bakery and nearby Pelican Pub and Brewery. The beach and nearby haystack rock fill your view from every window on the ocean side of the house.
The inside of the house is very spacious and there is a very nice wood stove in the upstairs living area, bring some wood for a cozy fire if it's chilly outside.
We will certainly consider renting this property again the next time we come to the Oregon coast for a vacation.
Picked our son and his family up in Salem and came here to have more space for the 6 of us to spend time together. Weather was less than cooperative as it often is on the coast in late fall. Loved being right here so we could get walks on the beach during drier moments. We knew ahead of time there is not a full service grocery in town so we got food in Lincoln City where we have stayed before. Pelican Pub is delightful. None of us are familiar with satellite TV, so having a guide would have been helpful, but we only needed it for news late at night and managed to eventually find a Portland station. Very lovely home, nice big open spaces for children who need space if they cannot get outside. Wished the deck door had a screen, or that some of the windows would have opened other than the one kitchen window.
We love Pacific City and this house was perfect for us. We loved the view from the living room, kitchen, and deck. It was nice to be able to walk to Bob Straub State Park and beyond. The house was clean, the kitchen had everything we needed, and there was lots of room to spread out. It's on our list to return.
We were really impressed on how clean and big the house is. Really nice place.
Very nice to rent a place that was as pictured. We were pleased with the variety of kitchen accessories/pots/pans etc. Location is excellent ! We were lucky to have perfect weather and sunsets !
this is a nice furnished large house with the best views in pacific city!!
spent a lot of hours on the deck and dunes soaking up the sun and haystack rock view.
very comfortable beds too.
we made some special dinners there
will love to go back in the future.
We met some friends from Eugene at this house during our trip to the PNW. It met our needs PERFECTLY. Tons of room for two families, easy access to the beach, and right down the street from restaurants, grocery, etc.
Enjoyed this home constructed in 2002. Multiple bathrooms made it easier for everyone to get ready simultaneously. Note that trash service is on Wednesday morning and the hauler requests the cans be wheeled to the road, using the provided bungees to keep the lid closed in high winds. Also, note that the home's listed appliances do NOT include a microwave, which we had overlooked.
Great house to easily accomodate 4 couples with bathrooms for each. Good sized kitchen and attached living room to share meals. Direct access to the beach and great view from the house and deck.
Had a family trip, each had own room and bathroom. great view, right on the beach, very nice kitchen, will be back!!
Great location! Great access to the beach over the dune directly in front of home. Easy to walk to shops, stores & Bob Straub park & Pelican Brew Pub. Be sure to bring a baby gate if you have small children. This is a great place to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren. We loved it!
My siblings and parents and I hadn't been in the same place for over a year prior to reuniting at this house last week. It was the perfect place for a relaxing vacation reunion! We appreciated the layout of the house (and all the bathrooms!), the comfortable furniture and the well-stocked kitchen. It was very clean and updated without feeling fussy. We cooked every day and were grateful for all the pots/ pans, utensils, dishes and appliances (there is a blender). Bring your own kitchen disposables like aluminum foil and zip lock bags, also leftover containers and sharp knives (if you care about that).
Two challenges-- three of the bedrooms face east and only have white mini-blinds for window coverings. At this time of year, those rooms were bright as noon before 6a. If you're light sensitive, bring an eye mask or a blanket to put over the window. Also the sound of the dining room chairs moving over the tile floor is *very* loud downstairs. I wonder if some chair pads could lessen this noise.
BUT really these were minor issues! We loved the house, the easy beach access, the deck with an amazing ocean view and Pacific City in general. It was great to have the grocery store (Chester's) and bakery (Grateful Bread) so close! We happened to be there over the Dory Days weekend and felt sheltered from the touristy busy-ness at other end of the beach while appreciating the parade that went right by the front door! All in all a great time! We'd certainly come back!
amazing view, lovely place to stay for multiple family. kids love it. great place to retreat. I will stay again!!
We've stayed in this house for our annual multi-family beach vacation for the past ten years. This year we found it on Vacasa rather than the previous management, and we were delighted to find things cleaner, wifi added, new couches, and the convenience of a lock box rather than having to stop and pick up a key. Thrilled! Looking forward to next year.
Nice place with a small dune to get to the beach. Nice that it is away from where the popular beach accesses are so the beach is not very busy right there.
We recently rented 35730 Sunset Drive in Pacific City. We had a very enjoyable stay, and the view from the main living room, and Kitchen was phenomenal! The access to the beach was very easy and just steps away from the house. I would highly recommend this property!
This home was a bargin for our trip to the coast with our two kids and grandkids. Plenty of room to spread out and great for kids. (Glad we had read review about bringing a baby gate for stairway!) The house/ furnishings aren't fancy but is very adequate and comfortable. Great location for enjoying the beach and beautiful views from the house. House was further from the Pelican Pub area then we expected (1.3 miles) so we drove to dune, coffee shop, etc rather than walk like we had expected to but it wasn't a bid deal.
The views from this home really are spectacular. We are happy to hear that you were able to share this perfect retreat experience with your children and grandchildren! Thank you for sharing your review with us. We hope to see you again soon!
Four bedrooms, four bathrooms, all in impecable order. We loved it.
This is a great place to stay and access all kinds of fun things to do in Pacific City and surrounding area! The beach is a few steps away and we saw virtually nobody on it the whole time we were there. We had it to ourselves. Will definitely be coming back to this place and this property!
Thank you for your wonderful review! This home is so beautiful and is just what an Oregon beach rental should be like. Spectacular views, easy beach access and a woodstove to warm up to at night! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and this home and we look forward to having you back again!
Lovely property- cute town- great to be right on the beach. Perfect for a 2 family trip!
Our whole family had a blast. The beach is right there and it's amazing. We found starfish and shells and sanddollars.We didn't want to leave. The house is amazing but if you have small children like we do I would suggest bringing a baby gate to block the stairs inside the house. That was our only struggle. We didn't think to bring a gate but we made do and had a blast.
We loved this place. We had grandparents, parents, children and cousins and it fit us perfectly. We didn't mind that the furniture wasn't pristine, the place was very clean and everything else was pristine. The views couldn't be beat. We are already talking about our next stay.
FYI-no board games as listed in the description but lots of puzzles. We did a puzzle each day/night.
Hi, thank you for your review of Ocean Front Sunsets. We are very happy that you and your family had a great stay with us. This home is the perfect family vacation house with lots of space, yet isolated enough to get to enjoy quality time. We really love the amazing views from the upstairs windows, and the panoramic views from the wood deck. I will be looking into the games listed on the description and get clarification on that for future visits. We also apologize if you were unable to connect to the internet, this home does have WiFi listed as available. If at any time you are staying at one of our rentals and have any sort of issue, please call Guest Services, we are here to help 7am-10pm PST and will be glad to assist. Thank you again, we hope to see you all again soon!
I would stay at this property again. It was right on the beach which is what we wanted. The only setback were the couches they needed to be replaced, as well as carpet. The house was very clean and their was lots of room to relax.
