There was plenty of room and it’s a great location on the strip. Also, Kenny was extremely responsive when we lost an earring down the sink. It took him less than 15 minutes to come to our rescue!
Jane D. Aug 2018
Our family enjoyed the shared living space, big deck and walking distance to beach and shops. Terrific spot in a lovely town.
David B. Aug 2018
The location to the main street and the beach was great. My only negative is that the first floor smelled of mildew/mold and that is where two of the bedrooms are located. The house was very well stocked and with clean linens.
Barbara B. Jul 2018
Great location a block from the beach and walkable to all the restaurants and shops in the town of Manzanita. Very bright and airy with large windows, attractively furnished, nice and clean. The space is used efficiently and was very livable for our group of five adults. It is on the small side though, especially the bedrooms. My husband and I slept in the bedroom on the main level and let our two adult sons and daughter-in-law have the downstairs rooms. The main level bedroom wasn't even large enough to open our suitcase in, and there were no nightstands or any surfaces on which to put our bedside stuff. Wish it had been just a tad more spacious. Also, the master bedroom contained a king bed as billed, but the supposed queen beds in the other two bedrooms sure looked like full beds, not queens, to me. But overall, we loved the house, loved Manzanita, had a great time!

The house is clean and generally well stocked. It is convenient to town, and the beach. It has a nice layout, and plenty of natural light. There were a few glitches. The cable box was broken, and needed to be replaced. The BBQ was also totally useless. There was plenty of gas, but the inside of the BBQ was rusted out. Lastly, and of the least consequence, there was no Saran Wrap, foil, or food storage containers.
Christina F. Apr 2018
Loved the location to both town and the beach! Hot water faucet outside to wash sandy feet was a treat! Water pressure in showers was great and we never ran out of hot water with 7 people taking showers, laundry, and dishes. King bed, two queen beds, plus loft with large futon, and 2 1/2 bathrooms made our stay for five adults plus two kids very comfortable. We missed the ocean view/ocean front property, but the price, location, and amenities made up for it this time.
Stefanie R. Apr 2018
This house was perfect! Exactly as described. Great location.
Mary Anne L. Mar 2018
We stayed here again for our 2nd annual ladies weekend. Looks like they did some updates, painting, more kitchen items etc. Just beautiful space, comfy and clean. Love the location, so close to everything we want! We had a little trouble with getting the hot tub up to temp, but it was great by the second night. We’ll definitely be back for next year’s trip!!
Betsie H. Feb 2018
The perfect getaway for your next trip to Manzanita. This home is located within a short distance of the beach or to the shops and restaurants. The kitchen and living room is laid out well for conversation or for curling up with a good book. We will definitely book again for our next trip.
Amanda V. Feb 2018
Very convenient location and nice house! Beds were a little too soft for us but overall very happy!
Meghan R. Nov 2017
This place is very comfortable and very convenient to restaurants and the beach!
Lovely home and the hot tub is a plus!
Anne S. Nov 2017
Perfect size house for a group of girls. Enough bed and super close to town.
Catherine E. Nov 2017
great place to spend a weekend
Dawn W. Oct 2017
We enjoyed our stay very much. Plenty of room for 5 adults. The entire house is stocked with everything you need. The location is perfect. One block from the beach and one block to town. Very quiet and peaceful.
Annette H. Sep 2017
We really enjoyed our stay. We will come stay again this is our second year!
Ann M. Sep 2017
This was a comfortable home for 5 adults needing 3 bedrooms. The location is great, one block from the beach and one block off the main downtown street. It would have been nice to have an ocean view and I was surprised that our deck overlooked the street and the houses across the street. However, the convenience of everything was worth it. The house is well equipped with everything you need and looks like it has been recently updated. We enjoyed our stay!

This was our 2nd time staying at this house. We love Manzanita and this house is very central to all it has to offer-just down the road from the bakery, pizzeria and beach. Hot tub and deck a bonus!
Thomas I. Aug 2017
This house was a nice little gem with a good location. We enjoyed the hikes in the area as well as the beach access. Manzanita has the most beautiful quiet beach in Oregon. Beach fires and sunsets are activities not to be missed. Hope to visit again!
Timothy O. Aug 2017
location, location, location . . . plus a hot tub!
Jesse Y. Jul 2017
Everything was great about this place except the terribly out of shape futon in the loft that is listed as a bed that sleeps two. It's not in serviceable condition and should be replaced.
James D. Jul 2017
New, tasteful and very well appointed home.
Great kitchen and wraparound deck with an outdoor dining area. Small ocean view.
While it's just 1/2 block off the main commercial street, it's surprisingly quiet thanks to superior construction and materials.
One block to the ocean.
Sometimes expensive is worth it.
Nothing not to love here.
Jan Z. Jun 2017
Family and pet friendly house with great deck, all amenities and close to beach. We loved every minute!
Karen Z. May 2017
Super great location to town and the beach!
Justin S. May 2017
We couldn't have been happier with this home. We took a trip for Mother's Day weekend that included three couples with their kids, which meant we fit six adults, two toddlers, one baby and one small dog in the home. The incredibly high ceiling made the living room/dining space feel massive, and despite having so many people in the home, we never felt cramped or crowded.

The home has three bedrooms with plenty of space, as well as a small additional bed in the loft that we didn't use. I can't speak for the other two beds our guests slept in, but ours was very comfortable, and the walls/ceilings muffled sound enough that all three kids slept soundly while the adults stayed up after the kids' bedtimes.

The wraparound porch offers lots of space and a partial beach view. We appreciated that it was well sealed; we didn't have to worry about the kids or dog being out there with us.

All appliances in the home worked perfectly. We didn't use the hot tub.

The home lacks a big ocean view, but its proximity to Laneda Avenue, the main drag in Manzanita, is a big draw. We loved being just a stone's throw from shopping and restaurants. And while being very close to businesses, the home didn't allow noise from outside, and we slept on the ground floor, where we would have heard it.

There are a couple minor issues to be aware of. The latch on the front door sticks; we had to use quite a bit of elbow grease to open the door from outside. None of the adults was unable to actually open the door, but children might have trouble with it. And we couldn't find a bread knife or a well-serrated equivalent. And an arm on one of the living room chairs was loose. But none of these things remotely got in the way of our enjoying the home, which definitely earned five stars.

Last, the home was perfectly clean. We really appreciated that, especially with little ones rolling around.

We'll definitely look to rent this home again. Thanks for having us!

This was a great house, slept all 8 perfectly well, the living room is small but cozy if all your guests are close. Really close to the beach, you can catch a glimpse from the porch. The porch is also fantastic, great place to spend the afternoon before walking to the beach for sunset. All around great place to stay.
Tia D. Apr 2017
I vacationed here for spring break with my friend and our kids ( four total). We had plenty of space for everyone and enough bathrooms. You couldn't beat the location . I would definitely rent here again!
Marian O. Apr 2017
Great location, very convenient for the town and the beach. Property was nicely maintained and clean. The TV/Blueray system was a little confusing to use, and the hot tub lid is a two-person job to remove or replace. However, these are minor things, and the house is clean, the beds comfortable even for taller people, and the location great. Manzanita is a lovely town, but do pay attention to local business hours. The local restaurants were all good and very friendly, as was the mini-supermarket.
Colin M. Mar 2017
Close to town, beach and manzanita activities. Hot tub was bonus.
Robert M. Feb 2017
Great location, perfect for walking to town or the beach! thank you!
April S. Feb 2017
Beautiful comfy home.
Elisabeth F. Feb 2017
I have a couple of complaints about my recent stay.

1) the hot tub was turned to a very low temperature so it was impossible to use until the second day of the stay.
2) the person cleaning our home wasn't finished cleaning at 430 when we came to check in ( check is at 4pm). We ended up removing towels from the dryer and setting our own bath mats out for the home because we just wanted to be in the house and out of the rain.
3) the fire detector in one bedroom was dying upon arrival and beeping repeatedly. We had to unplug it to sleep.
4) the television kept fading in and out of connection. We were unable to watch it for the movie night we had planned.

I've stayed with Vacasa many times and I've never been so disappointed in a home. I don't want to get the gentleman cleaning the house in trouble, but we paid $500 in off season to stay in a home which wasn't cleaned and had quite a few amenities unusable. This is out of character for your company and unfortunately has made me hesitant to book with Vacasa again.
Manager response:
We apologize for the inconveniences and disappointments this guest experienced. We have followed up with housekeeping and ask that our guests contact us if amenities are not working as advertised so that we can assist them.
Pam B. Jan 2017
Great location/beach access. Very comfortable living/cooking area.
Jim W. Oct 2016
Thanks
Jennifer S. Oct 2016
The place was beautiful and perfectly located. The weather was blustery and rainy but it was close enough to the shops and beach that we could quickly run back to the house. The house warms up quickly with individual heating adjustments around the house. Each room was adequately furnished including the loft. There were 5 of us that stayed here and we had plenty of room. The puzzles were fun for us to complete and the wi-fi was reliable and fast for me to work while on vacation. Certain aspects needed to be addressed like the washer will not drain and go into a high-speed spin and the master bedroom carpet needs to be professionally cleaned since it smells of pet urine and carpet cleanser. It masked for the first day while we were there but became very prevalent by the end of our stay.
Terra M. Sep 2016
This home has a perfect location, beautifully set up, cozy environment and everything we wanted. Each bed was very comfortable, plenty of towels and the kitchen had everything we needed. I will not only recommend this house to others I will stay here again.
Christine F. Sep 2016
The location of this home is perfect. it is so close to the beach and is also close to all the fun shops and restaurants.
Janet C. Aug 2016
This property is very close (1 block) to the beach and to main street of Manzanita. Sufficient kitchen to cook meals and the hot tub was a nice plus! We enjoyed our stay here and wouldn't hesitate to rent this property again!
Laurel C. Aug 2016
We booked this spot somewhat last minute and really lucked out. It is only a block from the main drag in Manzanita and a short two blocks to the beach. And the beach at Manzanita is one of the most beautiful on the Oregon Coast (which is all gorgeous). Despite it's proximity to the little town, the house was extremely quiet. It has a beautiful kitchen as well, if you enjoy cooking as much as we do, it's pretty fantastic. Overall had a terrific stay with 2 other couples. We'll stay here again... and be sure to try out the hot tub next time!
Nancy S. Jul 2016
Overall the house was very nice and the location was wonderful. You can walk to all the shops and restaurants and the beach.
Janice B. Jul 2016
This house is in a great location and has great updates and amenities.
Kathryn O. Jun 2016
We have stayed in this house for our yearly trip to the coast for a number of years now and each time we have seen improvements and upgrades which tells us that Vacasa / owners are responsible and responsive. We love the location and the amenities. I see that unfortunately pets are no longer allowed which will eliminate us from future bookings. This is a bummer for our family because we have built memories in this house and I'd have liked that to continue in future years.
David K. Jun 2016
Great place to stay. Very close to the beach.
Maira V. Apr 2016
This home is in great location everything is within walking distance, everyone is nice and friendly. My family had a great time.
Nikki G. Feb 2016
Great location, hot tub. Needs new dining table and more dining chairs.
Nancy U. Oct 2015
We were disappointed in the condition of the house. The floors were messy, the windowsills were dirty and the kitchen utensils/pots/pans were in poor condition. The oven did not work and it was not fixable during our stay. The online photos showed carpeting/rugs in the stairwell and mid-level. But only one staircase had carpeting. The entryway staircase did not and the mid-level floors were bare. This proved extremely difficult for our 10 yr. old dog to walk in/out and around the house. We would not have rented this house if we'd known about the lack of carpeting/rugs. Also, customer service took too long to call back and was unable to resolve any of the issues.
Manager response:
We appreciate your review and want to apologize for the inconveniences you experienced. We are working on the oven and the Property Manager will check to see if any pictures need updating so guests can see what they will be renting. We will also work with housekeeping on making sure the home is properly cleaned. We hope the house felt inviting and that you were able to relax in the hot tub!
Kim R. Apr 2015
we enjoyed our time here. wished two dogs were allowed. only improvement would be a nightstand next to the bed in the queen bedroom by the entry door. and a sharp knife. other than that, we had a great time and wouldn't hesitate to come back.
Manager response:
Thank you for your suggestions! We love receiving guest feedback and will take your comments under advisement.
Dianne R. Apr 2015

This is a wonderful property located a few minutes from the beach or the local shops in town. Once we arrived, we did not have to drive until it was time to go home. It has floor to ceiling windows that fill the rooms with natural light. It's decor is very bright and cheery, with very nice bed linens. The kitchen has all the utensils needed, and the deck has a gas barbeque. The hot tub was a hit with
our grandchildren as we were there during a very wet cool spring break.
Manager response:
Thank you for this great review! We are so happy that you loved the home and all it's great amenities! We hope that you will visit Vacasa again soon.
John K. Mar 2015
We had a wonderful time in Manzanita, and the house was great, we definatly will be back again soon. Thanks the King family
Kathryn Y. May 2014
the location cannot be beat. The sun radiated in all weekend and was awesome. There are a ton of windows and you can open them. 3 bathrooms on 3 levels so lots of privacy. If you have a large group and it's raining, there isn't a ton of living room seating and one TV but that wasn't a factor for us because we were always chatting on the amazing porch, at the beach or on the main street, not watching tv until 8 or 9pm. The group of girls said they would definitely stay there again and we had a great time. THANK YOU!!
Manager response:
Thanks for this great feedback. We're go glad that your stay was enjoyable and that you got a nice sunny weekend to enjoy time on the beach and relaxing on the porch! The home's location is so convenient to the beach main street. We hope you will come visit again.
Cecilia G. May 2014
Love the convenience of being so close to the shops downtown, and just a block to the beach. While the ocean view is a bit chopped up, from different parts of the deck you can see different aspects, and we thought it was fine. The house was immaculately clean and very well-equipped.
Manager response:
It's great to hear that you found the house immaculately clean and were happy with the distance to downtown and the beadch. We hope you had a great stay in Manzanita.
Jean T. Dec 2013
Beautiful family home. Well appointed kitchen. Full of light.
Denise W. Dec 2013
Our crafting group stayed in Manzanita and loved this house. Super close to the beach & fun shops. Kitchen could use a few more pots & pans, but other than that, it was great. The view from the upstairs loft is awesome.
Manager response:
Thanks for sharing your feedback with us. We are very happy that your group enjoyed your stay.
Chris M. Oct 2013
Very impressed with the location and amenities, highly recommend.
Manager response:
Thanks for the great review and recommendation. We truly appreciate it!
Deirdre O. Oct 2013
We loved out stay here. The house is new and in good condition, and is very comfortable and cozy. The hot tub does not have any privacy, however, and it would be great if it could be fenced or have a canopy or something that would allow guests to feel comfortable. Even though we chose the place because of the hot tub, we ended up not using it because it was too exposed.
Manager response:
Thank you for this thoughtful feedback! We'll be sure to pass your suggestions along to the homeowner. We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay!
Deborah E. Sep 2013
We try to vacation in Manzanita every year. We have been going since my youngest son was 4 and he is now 23. Even though my kids are adults now with several additions to our family now, we all still go. This house was fantastic. We were excited to stay there because we remember when it was being dug out and built into the hill. The house was beautiful, we had a view of the beach, and it was soooo close to the beach and town. It was very comfortable, even though we had eight people, a baby and a dog.
Manager response:
What a great story & tradition! We are glad we could be part of your annual trip to Manzanita and are so happy that you had such a great time at this house. We hope to see you back again next year!
David D. Aug 2013
WOW, What a wonderful location! My family loved this place. It was perfect for our family. We would highly recomment this property to anyone and everyone.
Cheers,

Erin O. Jul 2013
This property is very well maintained and spotlessly clean when we arrived. It is one block off the beach with a peekaboo view from the deck, across the street from coffee spot and walking distance to all local stores, cafes, etc. Our bed (king bed downstairs) very comfortable. Bathroom configuration was adjoining that room, the other guests would have to enter through the laundry room or king bedroom. Rooms are small, but they've made good use of the small footprint for this house. If you have more than 4 or 5 people, you may find the main gathering area smallish; there is one smallish sofa, and two other chairs. Table in kitchen has 4 chairs, so its good for small family. This area of Manzanita is very dense, so don't expect a lot of privacy; windows looking directly into condos next door--hot tub not particularly private, but for the convenience of being that close to the beach we think its worth the trade off. Everyone at rental agency we spoke with was very helpful, professional and easy to work with; even if you don't choose this property, the management company is excellent.
Janice S. Jul 2013
We had a wonderful time! The house is so close to everything...the beach, coffee shop, bar with entertainment, shopping. We even enjoyed the fireplace on the cool nights in July!
Marion D. Sep 2012
This property was very suitable for 6 of us on a girls' get away and reasonably priced. Plenty of room for all of us and comfortable accommodations. The house is 1 block from the beach and has limited view of ocean. Aside from the already mentioned maintenance issues, this was a most enjoyable stay.
Hanna C. Sep 2012
We just had a fantastic weekend here in Manzanita. The property is gorgeous - there are ocean views - okay partial - but it really is in a spectacular spot. We went with our son, and two other couples and it was perfect.
Rachel G. Aug 2012
We LOVED the house in Manzanita! It was beautifully decorated, very comfortable, and the location was unbeatable! One block to the beach and 1/2 a block to downtown! We were so happy with our stay!!!!
Joseph A. Aug 2012
We loved this place. Everything was new and in great condition. The deck was nice spot to sit and enjoy the ocean air. The beach & Manzanita downtown are both a block from the house. No ocean views from the house except from the loft. But, considering the proximity to the beach this did not matter. The only thing that was missing was a stereo or ipod dock for music.
Hal S. Jun 2012
This beautiful Manzanita house is a short block from the beach and the center of town. Built recently, the property offers wonderful amenities like granite countertops, ice machine and dishwasher. There was even a coffee bean grinder and bag of beans! It was just my wife and I but the house could easily accommodate eight.
Janet C. May 2012
This is a beautiful, clean updated unit. It is only 1 block from beach but the info on the unit said "wonderful views from the deck". The view is VERY limited and only available from a couple places on deck peering between trees and other buildings! That is our ONLY complaint.
