We enjoy this house and have rented it twice this summer, the first time was amazing and perfect, however this second time it was very dirty, sand in the bedrooms, stains on the counters, fridge was not wiped down, an outlet cover was broken, the Harry Potter like door with no stairs was open, obviously the previous renters trashed the place and looks like the housekeeper didn’t have time to do her job. The door knob was also broken to the patio which worked fine two weeks prior. The house needs some repairs, windows don’t work right and no blinds on the sides for privacy at night. Also adding a couple more chairs to the deck would be nice, we brought our own though. Great place just needs some repairs.
We've spoken with the housekeeping staff on how sandy the house can get due to being directly on the beach and how important it is to wipe the house down counters,floors etc. The outlet has been replaced as well as the broken door knob leading to the deck, and the trim across from the front door is repaired. The odd door that gives access to the attic is closed now and blinds are being ordered. We hope to have another chance to impress!
The place was beautiful !!! 💕we loved every minute of it. Only thing was I had to clean windows because we couldn’t see the beautiful view, but everything else was awesome! 😀
Great place we enjoyed it. Only complaint, which wasn’t a big deal but there are no blinds for privacy at night and only one chair on the deck. Luckily we had brought our own beach chairs.
First time at Pacific city, house close to beach, close to restraunts either 20 minute walk to three restaurants and about 10 minute drive to several others, short drive to Tillamook.
My family and I enjoyed our time at this house. Comfy furniture, high ceilings, open layout and big windows. Really loved the open kitchen layout. Just didn't have enough dining chairs, could have used some extra fold up ones. Cleaning was mediocre, floor was dusty and sandy, dishes dirty. Several light bulbs were burned out, seemed like it't not kept up very thoroughly. Hard to see in the dark coming up the stairs without porch lights. Bathroom heat doesn't work but they provided a space heater. Curtains missing from several windows so not super private. We could look past the inconveniences to be so close to the beach with a great view and comfortable furniture.
Nice views of the coast! Liked the surf house theme inside. It was great that the house was inside a gated community, we had the beach all to ourselves.
We are not very picky about decor when it comes to getting a great location, however basic up keep is expected. This place is very tired looking, cabinets falling off in the kitchen, missing kick board in the bathroom, cobwebs everywhere, curtains are transparent, kids didn't want to stay downstairs because so many spiders and cobwebs - all linens need to be replaced. Too bad because this is a great location with a pretty good view.
the house is very nice with lots of room and very comfortable. The bunk beds need better mattresses but the kids didn't complain, so it was fine.
We enjoyed our stay and especially the view from the livingroom. The downstairs was perfect with the playroom and bedroom for the kids.
The location is nice but beach access is a bit challenging. The sand piles so high you have to climb a mini dune to reach the beach.
Great location, central to both Tillamook and Lincoln City areas. Quiet neighborhood with great views. Some minor maintenance items in the house need attention but overall a fun place to stay.
Really comfortable, some small things could be done to make it even more comfortable but they are minor. Really great location. Clean house.
This house worked well for our family. However, the pictures belie the true aesthetics of the house. The above pictures show a beautiful house, but as soon as you see it in person it is obviously a rental. Aesthetically, thehouse is in poor condition and needs some attention. The two Queen mattresses are in good shape. The twin bunk bed mattresses need to be replaced. One Queen bedroom is well appointed the other is not. My biggest complaint is the lack of real curtains in both queen rooms. It was impossible to sleep in! As soon as the sun comes up it is in your eyes. All the window screens are missing. Half of the blinds in the front room are missing. But..... if you want the ocean, sand and beach experience for your kids and family you would be hard pressed to find a better location. My family enjoyed our stay.
Took my daughter and a few friends for her birthday. Had a great weekend and didn't want to leave!
Location can't be beat! ...but the property could use some updates and a good cleaning.
Awesome view and deck, so close to the beach! The cookware and fridge seemed on their last legs. Would stay here again.
The view was amazing - the house needs to be seriously updated, or at least more accurately advertised.
The beds were very comfy - the bonus room downstairs is probably great in the summer, however there is no heat source so this time of year is was completely useless. Not to mention the cable didn't work on the tv down there.
The kitchen didn't have any bowls for salads, baking dishes to cook in the oven with, no dish towels or dish cloths.
The fridge is missing a drawer, and the fridge door is missing the bracket on the inside for storing items, and it leaked horribly. The kitchen sink faucet leaks. The upstairs bathroom shower head needs to be replaced - overall the appliances need a serious overhaul.
We are so happy that you enjoyed the view. We really appreciate your detailed feedback. We are always looking for ways to improve the experience that our guests have and we have shared what wrote here with our property manager. Thank you again for choosing Vacasa.
My family went during spring break to stay on the Oregon coast. We were delighted to walk into this home and call it our digs for our stay! Well furnished and maintained. Amazing ocean view. We will be back!!!
We had a great weekend and the house was adequate, but if you have nine people in your party - be advised... The house does indeed have 2 sets of bunks and 2 queen beds. It sleeps 8, not 9. It used to have room for a 5th kid in the bunk room, but they have removed the twin bed that used to be between the bunks. You can still see the 5th bed in the photos, and if you call, representatives will suggest that the bed is there since it is clearly there in the photos, but it isn't. If you have 8 people, this house will work for you, and the view is great.
We apologize for the confusion with the sleeping arrangements; we did provide an air mattress for this stay to provide a sleeping space for the ninth guest. We have since changed the maximum occupancy of the home to eight. We hope your group enjoyed this homey vacation rental. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!
We have the joy of staying here in September during a huge wind storm. It was amazing to have a front row seat to the storm. The home itself was perfect - clean and cozy. We would definitely stay here again.
Went here for my 30th celebration. Unbelievable time, pacific city is way cool.
It was my 50th birthday and we had a family get together.We had so much fun! Friday afternoon everyone arrived and we had a BBQ on both night's This place was amazing. We had a great view of the beach. Played cards late into the night.The kitchen was fully stocked with anything that we needed for cooking.Saturday was a nice sunny day. We spent part of the day playing on the beach and then back to the house for a nice relaxing night. We will be back! Thank you Pam
Happy Birthday! We are glad the weather cooperated and we hope to have you back on your 51st!
Easy access to the beach, short walk to town, but very quiet location. Kitchen was clean and well stocked. Living area comfy and plenty of space. Our group had 6 adults & a baby. We felt like we had plenty of space, but I wouldn't recommend the bunkroom for adults.
Overall, I'd definitely rent this house again--- especially at non-peak rates.
We recently stayed 4 nights for Memorial weekend 20120 and had a great time. The view was wonderful. The beach access and house location is very convenient for beach combing, walking to town and playing in ocean. Not many outside chairs and BBQ is not in working order, but easy to bring your own folding chairs. Beds are comfortable. Stereo is a nice addition. House worked well for older people that did not have to use many stairs, only to enter and exit house. Thank you.
The House was AMAZING!! It is in a really good location, great views! Everything was perfect!!! Except for the natural alarm clock of "Woody" the woodpecker that is residing bird blocking in the South/East corner of the house. lol Besides that it was the best weekend I have ever had at the beach before!!! Will be going through your company again, for sure!!! Thank you very much.
A place you can go and relax, comfortable, easy access to wonderful beach. Beds comfortable, but limited amenities.
