Beautiful oceanfront, dog-friendly condo w/ shared pool, & hot tub

With an unbeatable oceanfront location, pet-friendly attitude, and access to a shared pool and sauna, this home in the Sand & Sea condos has it all!

Located in a complex right on the Promenade, this condo is just a minute or two from the sand and a couple blocks south of the restaurants and shopping of Broadway Street, the main drag of Seaside. Whether you're here to enjoy the beach, do some souvenir shopping, go golfing, boat or fish nearby, or simply explore the city, you'll be within easy reach here.

This two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo is on the sixth floor of a complex, which means you will have absolutely spectacular views of the ocean from your windows and balcony. There's an elevator so you don't have to worry about climbing any stairs.

While you're here you will have a cozy living room with seating, a gas fireplace, and a TV with cable, DVD player, and VCR. There is also WiFi access, as well as a private washer and dryer where you can freshen up your sandy clothes. A balcony faces the ocean, and you may even want to spend all your time out there marveling at the views and breathing in the salty sea air.

A full kitchen includes all major appliances - even a dishwasher - and has all the tools you may need to whip up home-cooked meals. There are plenty of seats, either at the breakfast bar or the dining room table, to relax and enjoy a leisurely breakfast before heading out for your morning walk on the beach.

Down the hall are a bathroom and two bedrooms (one with a queen-size bed and the other with a king). This condo is an ideal size for four guests, and you can even bring your well-behaved dogs with you, though please note that a nightly pet fee applies. Around the complex you will even have access to a shared pool and sauna.

With so many great activities nearby, you won't need to go far to stay busy here! The beach is just across the Promenade, and within walking distance are the restaurants, shops, and other family-friendly businesses this town is known for. Seaside boasts a charming arcade great for children, plus a fun carousel mall, golf course, and easy access to other wonderful cities such as historic Astoria and bustling Cannon Beach.

Book a stay at this pet-friendly, oceanfront Northern Oregon Coast vacation rental and experience it for yourself!

Great view
Leslie G. Oct 2018
Love the view, love the deck. Beautiful 70 degree weather with sunny days and clear nights. Our elevation allows kite watching at eye leval. Seagulls flying by the deck made me smile. Beach fires flickering up and down the beach at night. So many families having fun and we enjoyed it all in the comfort of this unit. Appreciated the washer and drier.
William M. Sep 2018
We return to this unit many times through the years. The view is amazing and the location is perfect. We love Seaside and so does our dog.
Carol W. Sep 2018
We have stayed in this building previously, but would not recommend this suite to anyone. This is a dog friendly suite, but we didn't like our clean dog even laying on these badly stained carpets. Also our dog barked twice at a skateboarder going by on the walkway at 8:30pm and we immediately had a knock at the door (from reception) that one of the resident owners complained about our dog barking..not a dog friendly building. Our dog is very well behaved and we have travelled with her extensively and never had a complaint, it was not as iff she was barking non-stop! Master bedroom King bed was very comfy, second bedroom bed was hard like a board. Kitchen cabinets are in bad need of an upgrade. Try 604 instead if staying in this building with a pet..it's much nicer. Location is fabulous and views are stunning from any of the oceanfront condos.
Manager Response:
Thanks for the feedback! We apologize about the carpets. They have been cleaned since this reservation. We do have to act on complaints and apologize if our guest felt we weren't pet friendly or acted too hastily to responding. We work hard to please everyone and never intend to give unwelcoming impressions. We love animals and welcome approved pets in any of our pet friendly units. We will share the feedback with our owner and work with them on needed improvements. Thanks!
judie s. Sep 2018
Very clean & lovely place with best views in town. I plan on going again next year and want the same place.
NICHOLAS C. Jul 2018
We will be back for sure!
Alicia H. Jul 2018
We go back to the sand and seas annually and we often end up choosing this particular condo. Everything is great and the view is breathtaking. We struggled getting enough trash bags from the office this time but that was our only complaint.
Chris W. May 2018
The living room furniture was very old and uncomfortable. The kitchen badly needs to be renovated...cupboards from the 1970's that need at least a good painting. View was fabulous. Staff at the front desk were amazing. This was a pet friendly suite, but in poor condition, clean, just needed major renos. Best part was the extremely comfy bed. We'd choose a different suite next time, for the price there are better options out there. from Nanaimo, BC
Dylan F. May 2018
Clean and very nice place to visit.
Carrie L. May 2018
WE loved the visit with family, walks on the beach, and the view
Darla F. May 2018
Loved the view! The bed was comfortable. The condo really is old. Carpet is terribly stained as well as the couches. We moved the love seat and side table to allow for easier tv viewing. But we new it was worn based on earlier reviews. There wasn’t any construction noise. Location is wonderful. We wouldn’t rebook this unit based on the staining and couches.
Manager Response:
We appreciate the guests feedback. The carpets have been professional cleaned for future guest satisfaction.
William M. Apr 2018
This unit is very comfortable, well maintained and spacious. The view from the 6th floor is outstanding! In terms of the downtown area, the location of Sand & Sea is excellent.
Laurie P. Apr 2018
My daughter and I were very excited to return to this Seaside Condo - we decided to check out a unit on the top floor since we enjoyed the bottom floor unit so much last year. The view is definitely amazing. Unfortunately, our experience this year was so bad, we will not return.

the unit itself is so outdated and really gross. Everything is worn down and old. Not worth over $300 I paid a night.

The building is going through renovations that are very LOUD and definitely inconvenient in many ways.

I would never recommend this for anyone who wants to to enjoy a nice peaceful and quiet getaway - it is none of these things.
Manager Response:
We are sorry to see this guest did not have the visit they were anticipating; unfortunately, we are unable to control when private owners choose to do work on their condos unless they are working during quiet hours. We hope to have another chance to impress down the road!
Katie H. Apr 2018
Can’t beat the view and location. Place is old and in need up updating, especially the furniture, but it’s not a deal breaker. I would definitely book this place again.
Patsy W. Apr 2018
The view is fantastic. Older building, rooms need some updating, especially kitchen cabinets.
Donald S. Mar 2018
Fantastic view.
Brady A. Feb 2018
Beautiful view on the top floor of the building! Plenty of room and comfortable beds. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Our vehicle broke down , and had to be serviced by a local shop, and we were allowed to check out late - 7PM. Thank you!
Robert H. Jan 2018
Great view . Amazing location! Love the top floor! Inside is really tired and needs a major makeover. Worn out couches, beds, linens, cupboard need to be painted or replaced. Whole place needs new paint and new lamps and furniture. Still we loved it it! I would be very angry if I paid peak prices.
Tom W. Jan 2018
Booked on whim for weekend get away with small pet dag, this place worked out well for us and we're likely to stay here again in future.
Jessica M. Jan 2018
We stayed with two kids and a dog. The location was perfect for beach access and walking the strip in Seaside. The pool was key for the kids, especially in winter. The condo is definitely dated but comfortable enough. Beds were good! The staff were friendly and proactive in communication before our stay. Check in and out were seamless!
Diana D. Jan 2018
Second time we stayed in 2017 love the fact I can bring dog
Tony V. Nov 2017
Don’t stay in that suite.
Manager Response:
We are disappointed to read this guest's feelings about this unit. The property manager is working with the owner on making some updates. Thanks!
James A. Nov 2017
Look deep before you stay motel rat hole is more up to date this room is the pet stained suit so if you have dogs no need to walk them
Manager Response:
We apologize for the current state of the carpet. It has been professionally cleaned which has eliminated any odors. Thank you!
Jeremy L. Nov 2017
We really enjoyed our time in seaside. Love the dog friendly condo. Looking forward to our next stay!
Carolyn F G. Oct 2017
Views from this unit are spectacular! Comfortable beds and furnishings, yet pet friendly. Staff was great as usual. Our favorite Oceanside retreat.
Heather S. Oct 2017
This is not a new building so expect several places of wear and tear. Couch was dirty and difficult to sit on. It needs stitching in some places. Great views out the windows and loved the patio and glass door opening out to the patio.
Paul E. Oct 2017
We love the view from this condo, but for the price requested the interior really needs updating in this unit.
Stephanie W. Sep 2017
Love Sand and Sea, wonderful view and location close to Broadway and on the Promenade. Condo was quiet and relaxing.
DEBORAH C. Sep 2017
The view is second to none. Even on overcast days the unit is bright due to huge windows and well placed mirrors. The upholstery and carpet are in need of replacement. The cabinet finishes are worn and the entire unit could use a paint job. We were comfortable but expected a nicer, cleaner interior.
William M. Sep 2017
This unit is clean, comfortable and well appointed. The view is fabulous and the location is excellent. Also, I appreciate the fact that the unit is pet friendly. My Westie loves the deck.
Joe S. Aug 2017
Second year in a row staying at this property. Great experience. Only recommendation to owners is that it is time to update some of the furniture in the unit. Couches are old and not very comfortable. Other than that the experience was A+.
SHELLY S. Jul 2017
We have stayed at the Sand and Sea in past years for the 4th of July. This year due to health reasons we decided to up our budget for an ocean front condo so that we could still enjoy the fireworks while the grandkids could do the beach. The condo was horrible. The living room furniture was not fit to sit on - its so worn out the back cushions on the couch the zippers are broke and the stuffing is just pushed up onside. The dining room is fine. The bathrooms are okay. The bedrooms - the beds are worn out. The lamps are broken so be careful not to get shocked when tuning on the lamp the hold bulb holder will fall and wires will shock you. The electrical is a bit concerning - half the plug ins do not work and the ones that do you must hold them as you unplug your stuff because they are all loose. The over all appearance of the condo inside is not to great - popcorn ceilings that has collected years of dust and dirt have made the place look bad. The kitchen is stocked with the very bare essentials and it is the first place I have ever rented in 10 yrs that did not have movies - beach toys games etc for the guests. The only great thing about the condo was the view - but be careful the sliding glass doors slider is bent so if you open it to fast you may loose the door.
The staff and the management are wonderful and very helpful. I would stay at this condo again - just not in this unit. I am very disappointed in the amount of money we paid for the accommodations.
Manager Response:
We are so sorry to see this guest was not satisfied with this condo. The sliding glass door will be replaced by mid-September. The electrical system has been checked and all issues found have been resolved. We are working with the owner on making updates to the furnishings and to provide entertainment. We will keep our guests posted!
Paul W. Jul 2017
Gorgeous view, tired furniture.
Chrisse R. Jun 2017
We've been staying at the Sand and Sea for over 20 years. Although the individually owned units vary in comfort, equipment and maintenance, the layout of the condos can't be beat, with floor to ceiling windows the full length of the unit. The staff is always ready to help. We love it here and can't recommend it more highly.
Alicia H. May 2017
This was our fourth annual trip staying in this building. Nothing can beat the amenities this condo provides, coupled with the amazing views of the ocean. We also love the pool, which is surprisingly nice and warm. I don't want everyone else to know about this gem because my favorite place may book up quicker, but they deserve to receive high kuddos. Can't wait until next time! We have a one and three year old and they had a blast.
Jeffrey L. Mar 2017
Condo has a wonderful ocean/beach view. Terrific location
Nancy S. Mar 2017
Was great
Terri R. Mar 2017
We were surprised and disappointed about the condition of the unit. The bathrooms have no working fans, the toilet in the hall bathroom, only worked about 50% of the time, and the walls in the bedrooms and bathrooms are cracked and the paint is peeling. The hand grip in the hall bathtub has a lot of rust on it. The dryer did not work. The remote for the fireplace is very confusing and we frequently had to just leave the fire on as we could not get it to turn the fire off. The cupboards in all the rooms are pretty beaten up and should be painted or replaced. The couches are also pretty old and some of the cushions are totally ripped out where the zippers are. The best part of this place was the view and we even liked the strategically placed mirrors that made the view even better. For the price we paid we were expecting a nicer place. We would not return to this specific unit.
Terri B. Mar 2017
Can't beat the view or location!!
Construction was going on when we were there. They told us in advance so we knew what to expect. The workers were very respectful.
The room was very nice, needed a little more upkeep however. But, all-in-all, It was perfect for what we needed and I will come back for sure!
Alejandro C. Feb 2017
This was by far the best thing I could have done. My mother loves the ocean and hasn't had a vacation in a while so I booked this location and WE LOVED IT. The condo is right on the ocean and was very spacious and just amazing! I would totally recommend anyone to check out this place! It was great and will totally come back again!
David M. Feb 2017
As others have noted, the view is wonderful. The overall cleanliness and quality of furnishings was fair. I would consider trying a different unit at the Sand and Sea, but would not rent this unit again.
Eunice T. Jan 2017
I booked this condo through Vacasa and was very pleased with the cleanliness and spaciousness! I would come again!
Maggie B. Nov 2016
Great location and property staff is always very nice
John C. Nov 2016
Unbelievable view and staff!
Phoebe S. Nov 2016
A lovely spot!
Melissa H. Oct 2016
Love love love the view of this unit! One night here was definitely not enough! Will be back!
Genie H. Sep 2016
Location is the best & view is awesome.
Karin Z. Sep 2016
The unit really needs updating but overall we had a wonderful time. Great location, the unit is old but clean. Front desk was very kind, helpful. Love Seaside.
LaDonna H. Aug 2016
We stayed here for the Seaside Volleyball Tournament. It's a convenient location with a fantastic view.
Joe S. Aug 2016
Awesome location. Great place to stay. Would stay again. Front Desk staff was very nice and super helpful. Housekeeping staff could've done better cleaning prior to arrival.
Rita H. Aug 2016
I've stayed at Sand & Sea Condos 3 times and have always enjoyed it. Room 602 is the first room that I found needed serious updating, especially since one pays more for the location and view.
Overall, I don't think anyone can beat the location and access to the ocean for a better price.
Cherie S. Aug 2016
This is a very well managed property. They were very pleasant and quick to help with anything needed. We loved the well equipped kitchen and comfortable accommodations.
Margie G. Aug 2016
Beautiful view from room 602!
Cynthia M. Jul 2016
Loved walking in and seeing the ocean! Have a teenage son so second bedroom and bathroom was great! No A/C but opened slider and back windows and got a great breeze from the ocean air. On the top level so don't have to worry about upstair noise. Loved having the channel line up.
The floor to ceiling windows on the beach side are nice and relaxing and made for an awesome view. Far enough away from downtown not to be bothered, but close enough to walk. Found a new company to do business with, the owner of Freedom Shirts is a nice guy & affordable, if you need anything with your logo on it stop in and see them! Several great restaurants and gift shops, and the best is the beach! Went for walks at sunset, found tons of whole sand dollars in the morning. It was relaxing, wish we could of stayed longer.
Kelly B. Jul 2016
You will love the view!.......awesome.....
Connie R. Jun 2016
We had a great time. The view was awesome! The room was clean and fit most of our needs. We would definitely stay again.
Mark W. Jun 2016
Great view, which is the main attribute of this unit. The furnishings are older than our 30 something son. The info plate inside the microwave says it was 21 years old and the handle disintegrated in my hand. The reality is, we rented it for the view and putting up with the outdated decor was OK. We would come back if we are in Seaside again.
Jeffrey B. Jun 2016
The building and unit shows a little wear. But would stay there again in an Oceanview unit.
Christopher H. May 2016
We go to the beach to see the beach and the ocean. Often it is a bit cold and wet. Also we hate to schlep chairs, etc. down to the beach. Here is the answer - stay in #602. You will get a fantastic view of the beach and ocean, stay dry and have chairs on the balcony or at the huge floor to ceiling windows inside by the fireplace. Bonus - the refrigerator will be handy too! Walk to restaurants is also a bonus - no need to search for a parking space. We will be back for sure.
David C. May 2016
Unit 602 has great views but everything about the unit is dated and unappealing. It's very dirty and worn. Theirs peeling paint in both bathrooms. Kitchen cabinets are falling off their hinges and need to be refinished. The furniture in the living room is dirty and needs to be professionally cleaned. The carpet is dingy and dirty. I suppose if you don't mind living in squalor then you won't mind staying here. We won't be back for sure unless there are significant upgrades made to the building and the unit.
Manager Response:
We will advise the owner of these comments and want to apologize for any disappointments experienced during this stay.
Edmond K. May 2016
The location and view are outstanding. The staff were friendly and helpful. The condo needs some updating .
Morris S. May 2016
Nice place though dated. Convenient.
Shane B. Apr 2016
We had a wonderful time!
Paul & Judith W. Apr 2016
Sand and Sea has been our favorite place to stay in Seaside for more than 10 years. We love the oceanfront condos and even though many are not updated, they are spacious, comfortable and clean. Service is exceptionally warm and responsive.

When I went to schedule a three day stay in April, I discovered it was under new management. VACASA's website was not nearly as well done as the previous management's. One could not simply enter dates and find out which condos were available, which were pet friendly, which were oceanfront, as before. It was necessary to go to each individual condo to get that information. Fortunately, as long time guests, I knew which condos I could stay in with our dog. This isn't a big problem, but it is surprising that a large organization like VACASA has such a primitive website.

The real problems occurred when we arrived. VACASA had moved entry time from 3pm to 4pm, which seemed pretty late by area standards. When we arrive at 4pm, we were told our condo was ready. When we went to it, the cleaning people were still there. I went down to complain and was told that I was wrong, the room was done! I was stunned. I invited the woman to come up and see for herself. I also asked to have the half hour delay made up for by a delayed checkout. She said she did not have the authority to do that. I returned to our condo.

My husband had noted what looked like large dog poop stains on the rug. He filmed them with his iPhone as housekeeping left. When I returned, he explained that he had documented the stains, so we wouldn't be charged for cleaning them. I was not comfortable with leaving, especially the big one, uncleaned and walking on the rug. So we called and asked to have someone come up and clean them.

Two men came up. One had SECURITY in large letters on his T-shirt and a police type badge on his belt. He said housekeeping reported that we had filmed them and they were very upset. He was investigating the problem to find out what we had done. He was very threatening and indicated that he had police training and had been hired because of problems on the property. We were stunned and frankly frightened. I should say that we are retired professionals in our 70's and we had our young grandson with us. We hardly resemble the criminal element. After he "interrogated" us and said he had to further interview the housekeepers who had been so upset before he could determine what needed to be done. We then pointed out the carpet with stains. He said it would require professional cleaning and could not be done while anyone was staying in the condo because it would take a week to clean it.

We then called the front desk and asked to speak to the manager and were told he was not working on the weekend. We asked to call him and have him call us. He did call and we told him all that had happened. He said he would send someone up to clean the stains and would talk to us on Monday when he was back at work.

The SECURITY guy came up with a spray bottle and a brush which easily removed the pet stains. While he was cleaning, he apologized if his earlier behavior had upset us and explained that security was only one of his jobs. He was also receptionist and housecleaning.

When we checked out at the required 11am, the manager apologized very nicely. But he did say that change is difficult, but we need to accept that the former management is gone and things won't be the same. If that means that guests won't be treated with courtesy and respect, we would sadly recommend that no one else stay here.
Manager Response:
We are deeply sorry to see that you did not have a better first experience under our management and hope we will have another opportunity to impress. The necessary follow-up for this situation has been taken care of, and we believe guests will continue to love to stay here. This guest was refunded for their unfortunate experience.
Kristine G. Mar 2016
This unit was perfect. Don't let the exterior worry you. There is some wear but the unit was clean. We did have a little child proofing with some decor items in reach of small hands and keep an eye on the TV which was set low (really should be wall mounted for safety) but so minor to the overall relaxing time we had (even with bad weather we all had a great time). Great property with great views and location. We walked everywhere with the kids - the beach, promenade and Broadway were super close and convenient. The amenities in the units with laundry, full size kitchen and stocked linens made it perfect and comfortable to go in and out from the beach - even on colder days. The views with the massive windows - we could stand there forever and just watch the ocean - so relaxing. The other side of the building doesn't do it justice.
Mark C. Feb 2016
We were on top floor and had a magnificent view of the beach. We WILL come again!
CHARLES T. Feb 2016
This was a very pleasant and quiet stay. We enjoyed the whole experience. We were on the sixth floor and it was very private and a beautiful view of everything. The staff were all very nice and very helpful we appreciated that very much.
Leeanne M. Feb 2016
Couldn't have asked for a better, more relaxing stay.
The condo was awesome. The view, outstanding and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
We will definitely stay again. Thank you.
Quinnton & Ashley M. Feb 2016
Great location. Condo was a little outdated. Elevator was slow and malfunctioned. Spare bedroom bed was very firm and uncomfortable.
David M. Feb 2016
Loved the location and the wonderful views. Bed in master was very comfortable.
Andre M. Feb 2016
A very dirty, unkept, rusty place.
Sarah H. Jan 2016
This property has a fantastic view! If you limit your expectations (the furniture, carpet, and unit as a whole is very dated and in need of an update) and focus on the location and view the place is a good choice. Floor to ceiling windows provide amazing ocean views.
Lindsay B. Oct 2015
Absolutely loved our stay in Seaside! Gorgeous ocean views with evening sunsets. Walking distance to everything we could want from local shops to Starbucks and Safeway on the main drive. We will definitely come back and bring the rest of the family. Brought my small dog, she had so much fun running and sun soaking on the beach everyday, was a dream vacation. Everything was wonderful, didn't want to leave.
Mary Ann P. Jul 2015
Beautiful condo; comfortable and the best view on the beach. We had a wonderful long weekend away with great weather. Already planning our return trip to Seaside and this condo.
Sharon A. Jul 2015
We stayed in the Sand and Sea (#602) and loved it! The view was breathtaking! The room was comfortable, spacious, clean, and lovely. The king bed was super comfortable and we loved everything about this place. We have been coming to Seaside for many years and this by far was the nicest experience of all!
Bryan J. Jun 2015
The sunsets and view of the ocean are amazing! The condo is also clean and well kept! This is a great place to stay and very family friendly.
Shelly O. Jun 2015
All in all, we enjoyed our stay. The location of the condo and view was pretty phenomenal. The condo itself was pretty dated, and the kitchen was lacking in pots and pans. If all you care about is location and view, then it would suit you just fine.
