Oceanview home with a private hot tub & deck - one dog welcome! (MCA #520)

Manzanita Certificate Of Authority: MCA #520

This adorable two-level Manzanita vacation rental is just steps from the beach, shops, galleries, and restaurants. With unique touches and ocean views, you and your guests will have a memorable experience in this beautiful space.

Easily accessible from this location are a number of day trip destinations, including Cannon Beach for gallery browsing, antiquing in Wheeler, museums and the Fort George Brewery in Astoria. The first two destinations are about a 20-minute drive, and Astoria is just an hour north, with plenty of opportunities for photo taking along the way.

Inside this home, you will be enveloped in warm pastels and plenty of windows. Do a little storm watching out the west-facing upstairs windows. The main living area is upstairs, decorated with an eye-catching shabby chic aesthetic. With colors like blue, greens, and yellows, this space has a decidedly clean, beachy feel. Lounge back on the couch and watch a DVD on the flat screen TV, or pull out some board games to play with the group.

A dining table seats four right by a cozy window seat. After dinner, curl up on the cushions with a glass of merlot and gaze out at the ocean. In addition to the dining table, there are three bar stools at the kitchen counter to grab a quick snack or set up your laptop and check your email with the complimentary WiFi.

In the open kitchen, cheery bright yellow cabinets greet you, as well as all the major appliances you'll need for whipping up a pot of satisfying clam chowder or even pan-roasting some steaks. Once your finished with dinner, you will be happy to find a convenient dishwasher to make clean up a breeze. In the mornings, brew up a cup of fresh ground coffee in the coffee maker and head out to the deck to enjoy the morning ocean views.

Also on the deck outside, aside from a beautiful view, you'll have a private hot tub and propane grill at your disposal. After spending the day beach combing, collecting shells, and flying kites, come back for a warming soak in the hot tub followed by grilled salmon or skewers of shrimp. This upper deck wraps around the whole front of the home and has plenty of patio furniture so you'll be able to find your favorite spot to relax. You can even take advantage of the outdoor firepit to share stories and roast some s'mores!

The main level bedroom has a queen bed and a TV, as well as a futon for extra sleeping space or a cozy spot to lounge and read a book. This room also has tall, slanted ceilings and a pretty iron bed frame. Downstairs, the second bedroom awaits. This room also has a queen sized bed and a TV, making its inhabitants very comfortable. On this lower level there is also a second living room with a sleeper sofa for additional sleeping options. This home will sleep up to 8 guests, and though no dog bed is provided, there is no need to leave your furry friend at home! This vacation rental allows one dog under 50 pounds (though a nightly fee per dog and a minimum fee per stay will apply).

Two bathrooms are also conveniently located throughout the home - one upstairs and one downstairs. Other amenities include a laundry room with a washer and dryer for guest use, and central heating for those chilly coast nights. After a long day on the beach, come back to a warm and toasty house.

Outside, there's a yard for kids and dogs to play that is partially surrounded by trees. And just about two houses away - beach access! Enjoy seven miles of beautiful, flat, sandy beach. Run with the dog, fly kites, bring a picnic down to the beach and spend a sunny afternoon watching the waves roll in.

In the mornings when you don't feel like simply having bagels at the house, join the locals in line for pastries and coffee drinks at Bread and Ocean Bakery - and while you're there, you may want to pick up a loaf of freshly baked bread to go with your clam chowder dinner. After fueling up, if it's a nice day, make the hike up to Neahkahnie summit for amazing views all down the coast to Tillamook Bay.

Easily walkable from the house, in addition to the bakery, you'll find a nice collection of bookstores, restaurants, shops, and galleries along the main drag of Laneda Avenue. Pick up some books and spend the day reading on the beach or at your cozy dining room window seat.

On stormy nights, brave the weather and pick up a roasted vegetable pizza at Marzano's and spend the night inside, watching DVDs or playing board games. Or, hole up at Vino Manzanita for some wine, warming snacks, and live music.

Whether it's at the height of the summer season, or a quiet winter weekend, the Oregon Coast is truly a year-round destination. And at this cozy, Manzanita getaway, everyone in your group will feel right at home.

We were just so taken with this little house. Everything was comfortable and clean, just a beautifully kept place. And *ahem* a hot tub overlooking the ocean.

I wish it were ours. ❤️
Claire v. Nov 2018
The kitchen and loft area are great for hanging out and have wonderful views! The pullout couch is all springs so plan on needing to use the couches as beds but the couches are very comfortable!
Rebecca L. Oct 2018
Love the reading nook in the kitchen. View from hot tub is also nice of the beach.
Keith C. Oct 2018
This is a great, place to hang out and enjoy Manzanita. Short walk to the main business/restaurant area. Nice view of the beach and cliffs. Very clean, quiet and well appointed. Pet friendly. I'd stay here again and would recommend to friends.
Martin S. Oct 2018
Beds are comfortable foam mattresses. Lots of windows and skylights let in lots of sunshine. Nice separate zones allow spreading out and privacy. Hot tub was great for two; OK for three. Manzanita was a nice little town. When we went to bustling Cannon Beach, I was eager to get back to calm Manzanita.
Several lights were not working. Our lucky discovery: if you have trouble getting lights and electricity in the upper living area, try plugging in your computer at the outlet below the window seat -- somehow that made the lights come on in the living room!
Shannon W. Sep 2018
We loved all of it. The porch was my favorite, the kids enjoyed having a separate living room. Husband enjoyed the short walk to a baeutiful beach!
Lee H. Aug 2018
Great little home perfectly located to town and beach. Needed some updates and a little TLC but overall we had a wonderful time a would use it again.
Renee H. Aug 2018
Look the view was awesome. House very cute. Had all you need. However the hot tub was filthy, place stunk like urine. Couches to carpets you didn’t get the smell out. So bad our clothes stunk after sitting on the couch. So made it hard to relax as there was no place to sit that was comfortable or didn’t stink. Beds massively uncomfortable. And apparently the towels that were left for us to use weren’t washed with soap. So after using the towels then found that out. So pretty nasty.
Pauline B. Aug 2018
A comfortable and cosy family home. The proximity to the beach and the village was a plus. Very family friendly with games and spaces to gather. Our dog and grandchildren loved the space under the stairs.
Maryann L B. Aug 2018
Fantastic property for our family reunion of 7 people. Can't wait to return!
Rachel L. Aug 2018
Very clean house within walking distance to the beach. Right around the corner from the Main Street with lots of cute little shops and places to stop for a drink and some food! The pictures don’t do justice for the view of the ocean, you can easily see the beach from the back deck and watch the kite surfers. Great house we would definitely stay here again!
Jody U. Jul 2018
The view, was great, deck was great to sit on and watch the ocean. Very close proximity to the beach and town. it was kid friendly.
David M. Jul 2018
The house was clean. We loved the hot tub and view of the ocean from it. Also loved the location to the beach and town center. Thank You
Steve B. Jun 2018
Great little house and a great location. With easy beach access. The hot tub was a plus.
Tana V. Jun 2018
The house is perfect for a family gathering. We had a lovely stay and will definitely be back. The view is amazing and the beach is steps away. And everything you need in town is around the corner. Thanks for sharing your space!
Charles D. Jun 2018
Loved the quirky old house with lots of flare and updated amenities. Watching the sunset while in hot tub was lovely.
Patricia P. May 2018
Terrific accommodations for family stay. Conveniently located near beach and town. Very quiet with enclosed deck for pet.
Shannon W. May 2018
This home was great. It had a lot of character. Unique and not ordinary. We fell in love and will be back with friends. The view of ocean from the hot tub was grand.
Craig H. Apr 2018
The house and surrounding area were so nice to relax at for a weekend. It's a kid-friendly home with great views of the ocean!
Dawn S. Apr 2018
This is a fantastic property. Very clean and totally comfy. Right near the beach and town. Had everything we could want!
Katherine S. Apr 2018
Beautiful view. Interesting layout. Super comfortable. One great sharp knife ;) Didn't attempt the pellet stove but had a nice fire outside going. Easy access to the beach and shops!
Ryan T. Feb 2018
Great spot right off the beach and a short walk to all the main and restaurants on main street.

Would recommend to my friends and will likely stay again soon.
Sara S. Feb 2018
This is a great spot just a block for the center of town but feels quiet and private. Nice view of the ocean from the deck and very easy beach access. I would definitely stay again.
Lynsey S. Feb 2018
We loved our visit to Manzanita. This beach was perfect and right on the beach, really close to all the shop and quick beach access. We loved it and will be back!
Tracey S. Dec 2017
great location
Mali M. Dec 2017
This is my 3rd or 4th time at this house. The upgrades to the carpet, kitchen floor, and TV were great. As always, we enjoyed the hot tub! This house is perfect with a great view of the ocean. It's location is perfect for walking everywhere in town. I will stay here again, and again.
Lauren L. Nov 2017
We didn’t ever want to leave this lovely beach house. My favorite place is the kitchen and dining area with great, wood-trimmed windows, and a comfy window seat—perfect for reading. The deck offers a striking, multi-angled view of the coastline, perfect for taking in the sunsets; and we enjoyed using the jacuzzi every single night. On the last night, we burned a few logs in the fire pit, which features sparkling rocks and a simple design. The property offers a fair amount of privacy, and all of the neighbors we encountered were pretty friendly. We left feeling relaxed and invigorated, hoping to stay here again soon.
Amanda H. Nov 2017
This house has a great view, easy access to the beach, and is located very close to the city center. It was a lovely place for a girls getaway weekend.
Paolo P. Oct 2017
location and view is outstanding. I enjoy cooking and hot tubbin with a great corner view of the beach
Tim B. Sep 2017
Good location, interesting architecture, well-used but clean and functional. Internet and HDTV work great.
Martha S. Sep 2017
This home was very nice and a convenient location to the beach. We had a lovely time in Manzanita.
Terri B. Sep 2017
The view was amazing every morning to wake up to the view of the ocean.
Very nice upper deck off the kitchen was the perfect spot for entertaining
Dean S. Aug 2017
there were 6 of us (4adults and 2 children) plenty of space for everyone, the 2 living rooms and 2 tv's were a nice bonus. having the 2 bedrooms on separate ends of the home was nice for privacy. the deck was great. however the kitchen utensils (plates and pots and pans) need to be upgraded and increased in quantity. we seemed to running the dishwasher constantly. the location is close to the beach and to downtown and the view of the beach was great. it is a very quiet location. we would definitely stay there again
Manager response:
The owner has approved purchasing new kitchen inventory - this will be done soon!
Daniel J. Jul 2017
This was a nice house for our family of 5. It was a 2 block walk to downtown and 1 more block to the beach. The house was very clean and the 'coffee nook' pictured with the ocean view was great.
Divya S. May 2017
Location is very convenient from the main street and the beach. The hot tub is very nice (though a little small given that the house accommodates up to 8 guests.)
Relaxing place for sure. The bay window in the kitchen is nice and the views of the ocean make for enjoyable stay in the house even if the weather isn't very good.
Ali M. May 2017
This house could not have been more perfect for a group of 7 of us! Walking distance to the beach and town! Clean and well stocked! Lovely deck! Loved this place!
Randal P. Apr 2017
The window views are spectacular. Ocean views from living room, kitchen and bedroom. Sweet window seating in the nook. Was able to view the new moon and a rainbow over the ocean. Nice open and airy. Memory foam mattresses, very comfortable beds. Close to beach.
Rachel O. Apr 2017
Our family of 4 (plus 1 dog) had a lovely 3 nights at this vacation home. The location was perfect - just a few minutes walking to get onto the beach or into town. The window seat and views of the ocean waves were amazing - we called it the "cuddle spot" since my children curled up to read and snuggle there. The home was comfortable, bright and clean with all that we needed for a nice getaway. The beds were both comfortable and having laundry on site was a real plus for our dirty dog-towels. Even though we visited in April when it is usually grey and rainy, we were able to take advantage of the brief dry spells and had a great time. The proximity to the shops and restaurants, the beach, and the Oswald West State Park were perfect for us - running along the sand with the dog, hiking to Cape Falcon, meandering around town filled up our days. I would highly recommend this spot - it was perfect for us!
Lisa J. Apr 2017
Great location with walking beach access very close. Interesting home divided into many levels, but that allowed for everyone to have their own space and a little more privacy. We all enjoyed the hot tub. The kitchen was outfitted nicely and organized well, which was a big plus when cooking meals ourselves. Making the reservation was easy and we found the check in and instructional info to be very helpful.
Mark R. Apr 2017
Great location, great view w/hot tub, decent house. Details: downstairs bed was broken, hot tub had no filter (yuck), needs hooks to hang up beach items, missing some basics like scissors, dish towels, window cleaner, etc. We would stay again, but would be better prepared. A little attention to these details would have made the stay 5 star.
Manager response:
The Property Manager and housekeeping team have verified there are new hand towels in the home, there is a hot tub filter in place, and hooks for towels. If guests have any issues with, or questions about, these items, we would encourage them to call in so we can assist them. Thank you!
Daniella D. Apr 2017
The location of the house was great — close to the beach, stores, restaurants. Even though it was raining during our stay we were able to enjoy the covered jacuzzi.
Mike F. Feb 2017
Who says you have to go to SoCal or HA for a winter break? the Oregon Coast is great, and this Vacasa home was fabulous. Views of wonderful sunsets, feet from the beach, 2 blocks from great restaurants in Manzanita. Hot tub relaxing, 2 TVs (not used, who needs TV at the beach?!), books and puzzles and lots of visiting. the only complaints were little things...a couple missing staples, no broom or working vacuum cleaner. All around relaxing week.
Erika F. Feb 2017
As mentioned in other reviews, this house is nicer than photos may suggest. There were three of us (me plus a couple) and I thought it was perfect. I am not sure how 8 people would fit comfortably. The hot tub is the perfect size for three people and the living areas were comfortable. There were some fun games and puzzles too. Very close to beach and restaurants.
Anna M. M. Jan 2017
Property was very convenient, Vacasa very accommodating when I had questions or needed to make changes
Kathleen L. Dec 2016
4 of us stayed this weekend for a birthday celebration. The house was super cute, very clean and had an awesome view. We will be staying here again.
Jamie M. Dec 2016
We enjoyed the great ocean views in the dining area and living area on the main floor. The beds were really comfortable, and the house was very clean. The kitchen amenities were a bit disappointing, no kitchen towels, no extra cutting boards except for the pull out one on the counter and no broiling pan or tin foil so we couldn't cook our meat in the oven. Things that can be easily remedied. I would definitely stay here again. One of the Vacasa staff brought us over a tea kettle, which we really appreciated. The staff were very responsive to our questions.
Manager response:
We appreciate receiving this feedback. Aluminum foil is not something Vacasa provides; we would suggest bringing it from home or purchasing it at the grocery store that is less than 5 minutes away. There are several cutting boards in the kitchen, and housekeeping will make sure the kitchen towels are ready for incoming guests. Thank you!
Brandi R. Dec 2016
Beautiful view and the house was cozy and well decorated. It was better than I thought from the pictures!
Janice R. Nov 2016
This is an older property that was very clean. It was close to town and the beach. We had a lovely view from the kitchen and living room. Basics are supplied.
It could use brighter lighting in the bedrooms and living room for reading.
We love the town of Manzanita.
Sarah G. Oct 2016
We stayed in this cottage for three nights with our dog and baby. The views are incredible, as is the location. This house is a block or so from town, and a block to the beach, but also manages to feel private and is very quiet.
As others noted, this house is even bigger and nicer in person than the photos convey, which is always a happy surprise. The views from the 2nd floor living area, kitchen and dining area were amazing. The window seat in the dining nook was my favorite spot!
Everything in the house was clean and clearly marked. My only disappointment was that the wood burning stove didn't work, and also had a note saying it often didn't work. It also requires a special size of firewood, which I imagine would be difficult to find.
Otherwise, I would happily stay in this house again.
Ronnie H. Sep 2016
Love Manzanita, loved the house.
Joel H. Sep 2016
Great location and easy access to all Manzanita has to offer. Hot tub was a nice addition but only gets up to about 100 degrees max. We enjoyed a peaceful Anniversary getaway just two of us. If more people I think the lower bedroom may be best for kids or folks that can tolerate the loud Humm of the overhead hot tub. Wanted to use the telescope to view full moon but it was broken. Place was clean and well organized and priced well for location. We would rent this house again.
Annette H. Sep 2016
We would stay here again! this house was perfect! Homey, clean, updated, beautiful views, met all of our needs. I t was a perfect family weekend.
Bonnie N. Sep 2016
Wonderful beach house! Enjoyed the views of the ocean from the deck.
Robin C. Sep 2016
It's not the most modern of places, but the accommodations were great. The place was very clean with all the little details well thought out. The deck outside of the kitchen with the grille & hot tub is a sure winner. You won't want to leave.
Alison S. Aug 2016
the house is in great location, one block back from the beach in the town and with great beach view over the rooftops from the deck and hot tub. Just two bedrooms and two bathrooms was good for the 4 of us and the house was super clean with a well stocked kitchen. It's not modern and luxurious but we thought it was much better than the pictures looked, very cosy and warm and clean. definitely recommend!!
Michael S. Aug 2016
Just one house from the beach, quiet street, walk 3 blocks to the store. Loved it. Pretty small, with just two rooms, but there are some extra couches. The deck is amazing.
Pamela B. Aug 2016
This was a great getaway. We loved seeing the ocean from the deck, living room and hot tub, and the location is perfect - walkable to everything. Thanks for a lovely weekend.
Susan L. Aug 2016
You are only steps away from a trail to the beach and steps away from downtown Manzanita. The home is quaint and served its purpose of being a place to lay our head for sleeping. If you are looking for high-end, luxuriousness in a home - this is not the place for you. Yet, if you want just about the best location in Manzanita and views and sounds of the Ocean and simply use this as your home base - then this is the place for you. It fit our needs to a T.
Lisa R. Jul 2016
You can't beat the location, but the kitchen is poorly stocked (4 tiny water glasses + 2 tall ones, very scratched and chipped plates, very low end/cheap pots and pans) and we had a hard time getting Vacasa to help us with a minor problem.
Joan G. Jun 2016
We loved this house, it is so comfortable that we felt like it was our home. We will definetly come back!!!
Sasha W. May 2016
This is a fabulous little house with a great deck and a nice little hot tub. Very quick walk to down town. Two thumbs up!
Joe S. May 2016
Love manzanita.
Audrey G. May 2016
The location of this house is definitely great especially if you don't want to pay higher price of beach front rental. The kitchen was minimally stocked. The house is dated but comfortable. Primary negative was odor of cleaning product which hopefully will be addressed after this review. Great mattresses. Hot tub a plus. Lovely views from upstairs living area.
Melanie C. May 2016
5 adults and 1 dog
The property was easy to find and had a great view
This is a much older home with a few updates.
The spa moter runs 24/7 and you hear it all night in the downstairs bedroom.
We enjoyed our stay ,but would pick a different home on our next trip.

Peter D. Apr 2016
Great location, convenient to town and beach! Comfortable house.
Carole J. Apr 2016
The Beach Cottage was an enjoyable stay. It was clean, the house is very close to town, and a block to the beach access, so it was great! The hot tub has a wonderful view of the ocean and this is something we truly cherish. We would rent this house again.
Georgina J. Apr 2016
Great location for price,this house is only a few minutes stroll to the beach.
Great views from the balcony
The house is better than the photos suggest so we were pleasantly surprised.
Great house for the price.
Valerie A. Apr 2016
We loved staying at this beach house. I have never done a VRBO and it was a great first experience! The house was so perfect for our family and our dog. The living area and kitchen were cozy, the views are great, the deck is lovely and we enjoyed the hot tub several times a day. We brought our own crate for our dog so he would have his own safe place, but by the second night, he was very comfortable. My eleven year old son loved sleeping in the downstairs den by himself and I loved being able to see and hear the ocean from my bedroom window. We were there during spring break and Seaside and Cannon Beach were ridiculously crowded, but Manzanita was delightfully quiet. There are steps in the house to get up to the living area, so if you have a family member who is disabled, this isn't the place, but for able-bodied folks, scrambling up and down the steps will do you some good. We ate in the whole time and found the kitchen well equipped, although a few of the items were a little well worn, so, if you have a special skillet you use for everything, bring it. The house has great conveniences like a hose by the door to clean off your feet before you come in and a washer and dryer if you need to a load of laundry and the dishwasher worked great. Cable and wi-fi worked great, too! We would go again and already have family members asking about it. Keep in mind, about the price, though, the per day fee isn't the final cost, there are added costs like cleaning fees, etc, so the end price can be quite a bit more than you expect it to be, but I still thought it was well worth it.
Janet G. Apr 2016
Lots of room to move about, deck was great, hot tub was perfect! Easy access to beach and to the quaint town, filled with friendly people.
Derek W. Mar 2016
overall nice house and town but the beach was kind of dirty
Kim S. Mar 2016
Charming even in the rain!
Kimberly S. Feb 2016
no thanks
Sarah R. Feb 2016
My boyfriend and I absolutely loved this house! It was unique and had a marvelous view of the ocean! It is about a 7 minute walk to the beach and the surrounding town was great. I would definitely recommend people stay here!
Stephanie J. Feb 2016
The house is great for two couples has separate quarters for privacy. the beach is one house away and if that's too far you can sit in the bay window and watch the wave crash against themselves. For those wet days, a covered porch that looks over the Sandy beach. Town is a quick minute walk with quaint shops and galleries, the grocery outlet had everything you could need, a pub and some restaurants if cooking isn't your idea of vacation. The location, condition, usability of this home made for a perfect getaway! We will be visiting more manzanita homes
Ian F. Feb 2016
Hot tub on the covered deck with a view of the beach - what a treat! If you are having issues with the tub, try all the various switches (some other reviews had issues).
Lai-Lani O. Jan 2016
I would definitely stay here again! it's a shabby chic house, clean upon arrival - comfortable and very close to the beach. you can see the ocean from the deck, kitchen and living room - great for winter storm watching.
A short walk to beach access and to local shops. Its a great getaway - nothing fancy, but super comfortable and cozy. Good for parties of 4-6; 8 might be stretching it---unless you're all outside most of the time in summer months.
Ron B. Jan 2016
Great place to stay for a winter vacation in Manzanita - with the center of town being so quiet this time of year, the central location is perfect! The house is in good condition, & everything was in good working order. We had a great time, both hanging out & exploring!
Frances M. Sep 2015
Lovely view, quiet and well designed for our needs!
Lynne B. Jul 2015
The house is sweet. You can see the beach from the living room and deck. It is secluded enough to feel private. A short walk down the street is the beach access. The house is easy to get to and has easy access to the 101 to sightsee. Also the house is easy walking distance to the town which is charming with great places to eat and very nice shops. There were some issues of cleanliness which I'm sure will be addressed. We were, overall, very pleased with the house and the experience.
Darian C. Jun 2015
Everything was clean and had everything we needed to cook. Hot tub was nice and hot. Couldn't get the tv to work in the master for DVDs however no biggie. Couch was covered with sand but not a huge deal considering the house is so close to the beach. Just covered it with extra blankets all weekend. I would definitely stay again!
Debra K. Jun 2015
Very nice. Very clean. Very comfortable! Would definately do it again :)
Fawn H. Jun 2015
Our family of 6 with 4 girls ranging in age from 4 years old to 12 LOVED our time at the beach house! The view was spectacular and the setup of the home was very functionable. We were just a short walk from the beach with was fantastic, especially for those quick trips back and forth to refresh.
The town itself was a little inactive during the days that we were there, but we still found some enjoyable spots and short drives to other towns to enjoy as well!
Our whole family just loved it! It was perfect for us!
Manager response:
We're delighted to hear that this home was perfect for your family. It's close proximity to the beach and spectacular views make it an ideal getaway spot for kids of all ages. We hope to see you again soon!
Amy K. May 2015
This is a sweet house with lots of stairs and places to hang out. we are a family of 5 and each person found a nook to read and chill out. For people that have mobility issues, it's a rough house, lots of stairs and tight corners. This house is rustic, it's clean and bright, but not "fancy", not for honeymooners, but more for a casual vacation house experience. A bit dated but charming.
Shanna B. May 2015
Spectacular view, hear and smell the ocean, large windows and multiple places to relax both inside and out of the home. We never felt cramped or crowded - even with 4 teenagers and 4 babies 2 and under. I would not hesitate to rent it again!
Melinda Z. Apr 2015
We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Manzanita. The weather was cold but we dressed appropriately. The few people on the beach were very friendly, most locals. We enjoyed the quiet of the house and neighbourhood and loved watching the ocean from the deck. The hot tub was a bonus! We never had the tv on, just enjoyed reading to the sound of the ocean. A week was not long enough for us to explore the surrounding area. Next time we return, it will be in the early fall as suggested by the locals. And we will return!
Megan S. Mar 2015
My girls and I went for two nights in March. This house is in a perfect location just a couple blocks from town and steps to the beach. There's a really nice view from the deck and we loved having our coffee in the window seat and watching the waves. The layout is really good and would be perfect for two couples or even two families as there is an upstairs room with a bathroom and a downstairs room and bathroom. Both levels also have a living room with aTV. We did a little shopping and exploring but didn't get out as much as we wanted since it was like a monsoon out! I would definitely recommend this property to friends and even consider renting it again myself. My only complaint is that the hot tub was not hot. Really kind of disappointed about that since I had said to the manager that not having the hot tub was a deal breaker. Manzanita is a cute little town with a nice beach and overall we were happy with our stay. Just might order up more sunshine next time!

We couldn't have been more pleased with the house and accommodations. The area and beach were incredible. We definitely will return.

Our son turned 30 and his wish was to wake up at the beach! We made it happen with the great price and availability of this beach house. It was so close to the beach access and the view from the deck was perfect! Everything was thought of in the kitchen and bath. It was nice to have the space needed for everyone's needs. We had adults, a teen and a baby. Thank you for making his birthday and our weekend with him and his family unforgettable!

This house has a great location, not beach frontage but the next best thing: across the street from the houses that do. A multilevel house in a nice, woody setting, with good views to the water, and on a quiet back street, but only two minutes from the beach--and the main street of Manzanita.

Most of the house is bright, the one exception being the dark (and cold) downstairs bedroom. But the diverse levels make the house seem even bigger than it is, and there are lots of places inside to sit and look out the windows, or read. The L-shaped deck faces the beach and is partly roofed (so you can find some shade on hot sunny evenings), with an outdoor grill and hot tub (neither of which we actually used--but some would, no doubt, enjoy them).

The town has a range of eateries, from pizza and Mexican food, to classy small restaurants/bistros with excellent food and wine, and coffee (Blackbird and Vino), and a great bakery (Bread and Ocean).

Manzanita is MUCH quieter than Cannon Beach, but with a lot of its appeal from earlier days, Haystack Rock aside--and we'll certainly try to book 11 Merton Lane again when we return to Manzanita, which we hope to do again, and soon.

Nice two bedroom cottage; close to the beach; ocean view from the deck; short walk to main street -- what else could you want? (-:

Cute cabin. Tastefully decorated in beachy colors. Nice ocean views from kitchen and living room.

Beautiful views of the ocean, short walk to beach and downtown, nice deck that can accommodate eight people comfortably, well-stocked kitchen, washer & dryer, and two bedrooms (one up and one down) with separate bathrooms. Both floors have a nice living room space, too. Ideal set up for grandparents upstairs and parents and children downstairs (kids could sleep in living room).

The house was clean and had a nice view from upstairs. The stairs however, were narrow, and not deep enough. The step going in and out of the downstairs bedroom was awkward.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review and feedback. We are very sorry that you found the steps in the home to be challenging. Hopefully this did not effect your overall enjoyment of the home.

Great place to spend with the family for four days. Beautiful views of the ocean and very close to town. It is an older property but has been updated with some fun beach colors and is very clean. We'll be back!
Manager response:
Thank you for this feedback. I am glad that you were able to enjoy the beautiful ocean views that can be enjoyed from the deck. We look forward to seeing you again!

Excellent customer service from Vacasa. Lovely cottage and very quiet. Perfect for relaxation and just recharge your energy. Located just one block away from the beach but from the house you can see a big part of the ocean from the deck, dining room and living room!!

Had such an enjoyable weekend. Beach, ice cream in town, used the hot tub, BBQ, outdoor firepit for S'mores. The ocean view is great. Kitchen was well stocked with pots pans etc. I would def rent here again.

The house far exceeded our expectations. We packed a great deal more than we needed since the house was so well stocked with linens, cookware, firewood for fire pit etc. Hot tub and gas barbecue on the large deck with a fantastic view of the ocean . Only one block to Laneda Ave. where there are fun shops and great restaurants. Very reasonably priced . Will definitely rent again.

We only stayed for two nights but wished we were staying for a week. The cottage was comfortable with all the necessary items to make it like home. Walking distance to the beach was almost as good as beach front. Had a great time...looking forward to coming back.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review. We're pleased that you found the cottage to be comfortable and that you were happy with its proximity to the beach. We hope you come visit again.

This house is perfect for a beach weekend. Just steps from the beach and downtown Manzanita. Great views from the deck and windows. This house is both cozy and spacious, and is one of the best beach rentals we've stayed in!
