Loved the clean, newly updated unit! Soundproofing between the next unit poor.
BYOC - Bring your own couch! What an absolute piece that couch is, and to think of how many people have written in about this and the owners haven’t done anything is beyond me. I have sat on rocks more comfortable than that couch. The Oregon coast almost always has lousy weather so a good majority of your time will be spent sitting on a couch/chair relaxing, reading, watching a movie with your family, etc. if that is your plan, find something more comfortable.
The unit was clean and well kept aside from the couch. The beds were nice and comfortable.
Also note that this place is literally right off the highway, the vehicle traffic is very noisy. However, that does go away at night for the most part.
Location is very convenient to both Yachats and Waldport near Big Stump Beach. The unit was remodeled and very clean. Lots of windows and sliding doors so we were able to enjoy the sound of the ocean and fresh air. The deck was protected from the wind, with full view of the beach and ocean. The beds were WONDERFUL . . . all three of them (2 queens downstairs and king upstairs).
Things we learned from the previous reviews:
The Couch: It was still not replaced and was very uncomfortable to sit on. You could see the spring poking up against the fabric of the cushion. There is definitely not enough living room furniture for 6 people. Highly recommend replacing the couch and adding another easy chair.
Fireplace: still not operational. Please fix.
Closets: As other reviews stated, the upstairs has a closet but not in downstairs bedroom. It would be helpful to have some hooks added in the downstairs bedroom, in the bathrooms, and near the front door.
Deck chairs: Only two plastic chairs provided. Definitely need additional deck chairs, especially if accommodating 6 people.
Upstairs bathroom window could not be opened because the crank was broken. Please fix so that folks can get a nice cross breeze through the bedroom.
The VACASA staff checked in with us during our stay and we were able to report that the coffee maker reservoir was leaking all over the counter, but it was not replaced during our stay.
Overall, we had a wonderful and relaxing stay. The unit was cozy and equipped with essential kitchenware, and plenty of bathroom and beach towels. We look forward to vacationing in Unit 4 again!
This is our second time staying. Beds are heavenly. Everything was very clean and the ocean view was amazing. We loved being able to walk down to the beach.
It sleeps six but would be a tight squeeze in the living area. Seating is limited.
Overall a terrific place!
We love the location! Have been coming here ( cape cod cottages) for 30 years! Appears under new ownership updates nice. Beds bathrooms comfy nice. The unit we had 4 the couch’s springs we’re coming through foam. The chair in lvg room was comfy tho. But like I said we love ccc and location and will stay whenever we can!
This worked well for our family of six!
Pro: Location is stunning! Beds are comfortable , easy check-in
Cons: given that there is poor/non existent cell service, the wifi should not be so SLOW. Barely able to make a phone call, vacasa never answered phone and calls kept dropping because wifi so poor, sofa with a spring poking up in a couple places, sheets were questionably clean but extra linen in closet so we changed them.
We apologize for any disconnect or miscommunication in the care you received when communicating with our team, as this is not the high level of customer care we strive to provide. We will follow up with our team regarding your experience and will use this feedback as we grow as a company to better serve our guests.
Setting and beach access are outstanding. They really make the stay. The remodel was professionally designed and constructed. Bedrooms and bathrooms are clean and relaxing and we gathered around the fireplace every night, despite a ridiculous couch with broken springs? You should change that now.
A broom is provided but it doesn’t get all the sand that comes in from the beach, despite our best efforts. Each unit really needs a small cordless vac for the sand. The only hose to rinse shoes and feet is on the deck through the house. Bad idea. Also, the internet service is nonexistent. It wouldn’t even provide a signal for their own tv. But again, the beach access makes the place. We’ll be back.
The view is stunning from the living room and bedrooms. Clean, roomy, warm and cozy no matter what the weather. A short walk to the most beautiful, sandy, walking beach. Totally enjoyed our stay here.
Loved this house and will be back!
The house: Nice simplistic unit. The theme of the unit is all white with black accents and a couple pops of color. Stayed in #4. The place was so welcoming as we walked in we knew we were going to be happy. There is an amazing dining room table that would be great to play games on or have a big family meal with plenty of chairs. Kitchen is a basic full size set up. Make sure you bring salt and pepper as there was none in the kitchen otherwise it had everything we needed. The living room was nice and cozy. Sadly the fireplace was not operational while we were there, but we were told that with our confirmation. The BIG windows looking out to the deck was perfect. As others have mentioned it would be nice to have lamps in the unit, as the overhead lights are intense and there is no way to dim them in the living room. In the bedroom when your in bed and want to read you have to get up and turn the bright overhead lights off-not very convenient. The both upstairs and main level bedrooms were comfy with plenty of space. Beds were nice and plenty of pillows. On the main level it would be nice to have some place to hang coats even pegs or hooks. There is no closet or dresser in the main level bedroom. Upstairs there is a closet which was nice. There is also a lamp up upstairs too. OK the bathrooms were amazing. The tubs upstairs and down were fantastic nice and big. Perfect for tall people. Tons of towels in the bathroom cabinet but they really need a towel bar or hooks by the shower. There is really no place to put your towel while you shower. Loved that the floors were heated in both bathrooms as well. Nice touch!
Best part the beach: We wanted to not only have a beach view but to be able to walk down to the beach directly from the house. We did not want to climb over dunes, or crazy paths to get to the beach. This home has an amazing view from the ground floor as well as the second floor. Outside off from the unit is a nice gravel pathway leading down to a landing with benches and a beach view as well. Then there are stairs with hand rail leading to the beach. The stairs were a bit steep but not bad at all. Had the beach to ourselves pretty much the whole time with only a couple people walking by. The house also has a very nice deck with nice railing. The deck was perfect for soaking up the sun and then at night enjoy some star gazing while the waves were a soothing background noise.
We will definitely be back and really appreciate the attention to detail and support we received from Vacasa, including their new customer care text we received to make sure we had everything we needed and that the place was cleaned. Sometimes you never know what you're getting into with rentals and its nice to know that you have support if you need it.
Fantastic stay, great location, cute, cozy clean, right on the beach. Beds were great, tub was awesome. Loved it, we'll be back.
Unit was very nice. The bathrooms were especially lovely
Overall it was what we expected because we have rented units throughout the last 70 years. Always a fabulous view. The cleanliness of the unit at entry was not good. But that was the worst of it. We were also disappointed in the quality of the wi-fy and the television services. The fireplace was wonderful, the basic supplies were awesome, along with the service from the on premise Vacasa workers. Overall I can’t wait to return.
The beautiful views, kid friendly
This was the perfect spot for a short getaway to coast. Would stay here again!
We had a nice visit to the coast and was able to visit alot of the local beaches and hit spots. Make sure you bring coffee or tea with you as there is none there. Don't expect solid cell service ( Verizon) and the WiFi was terrible (spotty). I would definitely stay again but would have different expectations the next go around.
This nicely remodeled two bedroom, two bath, giant deck overlooking the ocean had everything we needed. The upstairs, primary bedroom had a magnificent giant soaking tub with a delightful walk in shower next to it. The downstairs bedroom had two queen beds with bedside tables and a well stocked bathroom. The kitchen had all the required utensils, pots, pans, dishes, cups, and bowls. It was easy access to stairs that led to the beach for lengthy barefoot walks in the sand. Added perks included a charging station for electric vehicles, working gas fireplace, and pets were welcome. Everything we needed for a quiet stay with a beautiful view of the ocean.
This is a nice pet-friendly beach rental. The beach is uncrowded and continues for miles. The unit is clean and as-advertised. But… The property has been recently renovated and some simple things have not been completed. There are no hooks anywhere in the house. No towel bars or bath mats in the upstairs bathroom. No bedside reading lights.
We loved the location and the amenities in this home. Has all the necessities in the kitchen, both bathrooms are amazing and you can’t beat this view. The place doesn’t look like much from the outside, but the inside is very modern and fully renovated. The only complaint we have is the lack of storage in the second bet room with two beds. There was nothing to put away or hang clothes on besides night stands. Neither bedroom had any lamps except overhead lights which was inconvenient when you gave up to 4 people sleeping in one room and not everyone goes to sleep at the same time. Not a major issue, but something to be aware of. Overall we would absolutely stay again. Everyone in the family lived the place
Very nice updated cottage! Clean as well. This place worked well for a family of 6 (4 boys ranging from 4-15yo). The walk to the beach was not that far and very empty! Parked our high roofed Ford XLT right outside the door.
I see other comments about not having a dishwasher and you'll find some dirty dishes, but they do provide dish soap and sponge. Kitchen thongs also would've been helpful. There wasn't a towel rack in the main bathroom to hang your towel, but they did provide extra towels. The wi-fi was spotty which my kids disliked, and couldn't play their xbox live or ipad games. But all first world problems right, we dealt with it; not a big issue.
We overall enjoyed our stay here and would stay here again.
We absolutely love it here!!!! Perfect location and wonderful accommodations! You can hear and see the ocean from every room. It was such a treat to just walk down the path right to the beach, perfect for our 2 dogs. The bathtub upstairs is heavenly. Loved the fireplace and the heated bathroom floors are a major plus! The kitchen set up is great. We had everything we needed appliance wise. Highly recommend the Hilltop bistro for lunch or breakfast. We cannot wait to return here again! Only constructive feedback is that it would be great to have a hanging rack in the closet and towel hooks. There isn’t anywhere to hang clothes. Also would be great to have a table on the balcony.
We love the place. Here's a couple things they need to prove in...they need to make sure they clean off the dog hair off the couches. Also need to add a rods in the closet to hang up clothes. And there's no lamps in the bedrooms.
We are so glad you stayed with us, David! We are suggesting the rod and lamps to the owner. Thank you!
The house was exactly as advertised. Clean, modern, comfortable. The views of the ocean are fantastic, either from inside or out on the deck. Beach access is easy. It could use a few things, like basic kitchen supplies, towel hooks, some way to hang clothes, but we knew those were in short supply before we left and brought everything we needed. The tv seems to be all app based, which is great for watching Netflix or Amazon Prime, but there was no way (that I could find) to watch broadcast tv, and the internet could be spotty. A supply of games, cards, and puzzles could help when the tv is not working. But, those are minor quibbles.
Hi, David! We're delighted to hear that you had a relaxing stay at this coastal home. Your feedback is appreciated and has been passed to local management so that they can work to improve this home. We look forward to hosting you again for a future stay!
Clean, soft beds, bathtub upstairs is amazing! Parents with young kiddo's there are three doors you would need to lock and the front door does not have a secondary locking device so bring your own if your children are quiet explorers or experience autism. Dog wash and laundry are also closed but this is not announced in the arrival information update due to COVID.
The view was amazing. Very nice beach that didn’t have many people around which was very nice for our dog to run around. The cabins were recently updated and very nice. It would have been a five star but with the update the cabin is a bit sterile. It could use something on the walls, lamps in the bedrooms, a coffee table. We did a lot of cooking while we were there and it had the basic amenities which was good other than there was no oven mitt. So that was unfortunate. I would stay there again. Very peaceful and relaxing
The view is great, and it has private access to the beach which is why we booked the place... But, it's on the highway so you can hear some highway noice... And it was recently renovated so it was sparkling clean and new, but there wasn't a single hook/curtain rod/hanger to hang up coats, towels, etc.
We had a great time here! We were able to bring our little pups and that was super great! It was their first time really traveling and all in all they did a great job. The cottage was super clean and beautifully updated. The kitchen was stocked with all you would need to make meals such as pots, pans, cutting boards, utensils, etc....The little heaters worked sufficiently to warm the cottage up as it was a little chilly the time we were there. The view was amazing...the deck wonderful. Would have been nice to have enough outdoor chairs to seat all three of us that were staying....the access to the beach was lovely and very close.
While there was a green space for the pups to use, it was not well lit....actually not lit at all...not even on the walk down to get there, so come evening that was a little challenging. We ended up using our phone flashlights to help us see our way.
We had to call to get help with the fireplace as the website said we needed a remote and it was missing. The cottage overseer tho was extremely helpful. He was very happy to help and easy to reach.
We did travel during Covid, so it would have been nice prior to traveling to know that we were not able to access the laundry facilities they have there. We had planned on being able to use them and packed with that in mind.
I would recommend taking your own beach towels. While they give you plenty of bath towels and hand towels, etc....had we not packed our own beach towels, we would have had to ask for more bath towels.
Internet was spotty at best, which made virtual school a little tricky, but overall it was fine.
All in all, it was a great little getaway...We would go again for sure!
We are happy to hear you enjoyed the cottage during your stay! Thank you for your suggestions regarding the chairs and exterior lighting, we have passed this feedback to our local staff. We're sorry about the lack of access to the laundry facilities. Thank you for staying with us, we hope to host you again!
The remodel is incomplete. No towel racks, no clothes rods, no hooks! No where to hang anything! No where to put your luggage. Fireplace does not work! Will be nice when they finish it. Should not be renting until then. The big deck was nice with full on view of the ocean. Could do better on the chairs out there, only 2 for a unit that sleeps 6. No table or end table on the deck either.
Like I said, nice remodel just need to finish it.
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Janet. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement as we work to complete this remodel. We'll pass your suggestions to the owner for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
We love the place beautiful views,(Fire started next day) otherwise nothing to complain, Mother Nature got the best of it, but even with haze smoke we had a beautiful time:)
A spotless cottage, spectacular ocean view with a cute fire place and two full bathrooms. Bathtubs to relax in. We love the remote location and will be back soon!
This unit is remodeled and is lovely. The view is perfect and a soft sandy beach is just a staircase away. The kitchen had everything we needed. Beds were comfortable. Because the unit is obviously new it could use a few final touches like doormats and shelves or hanging rods in the closets, but those are easy fixes. Be aware that cell service is spotty at best and the WiFi was unreliable, so plan to unplug. Also, the game/laundry room had a sign saying it is closed due to COVID restrictions. All in all we had a great stay and would recommend it!
The unit was extremely clean and newly renovated. Beds were comfy with warm comforters for the cool nights by the coast. I really enjoyed walking thru the lovely landscaped backyard down to the beach. There were no spices, coffee filters or cooking oil, salt or pepper, If you plan to cook, be sure to bring what you need. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return to the beautiful Oregon coast in our future!
Thank you for your feedback, Nancy. Our homes are not stocked with coffee filters or any perishable items. If our guests intend to use or need these items they will need to supply them for their stay. We hope to host you again very soon, thank you!
Love this place, beautiful beach, nice and secluded.
The view was gorgeous and the cottage was comfortable. I can't imagine how four people could stay there though-- there's a double bed in the bedroom and a loveseat that makes out into a single bed in the living room. There is a coffee maker but be sure to bring your own filters since none are provided.
Hi, Paula! We are so glad you enjoyed the view. We have verified the bed is a queen and the loveseat is a double. Thank you!
We loved this cute little place! Right near the water and super cozy...we can’t wait to go back! Thank you!
Adorable clean, cozy beach front cottage with everything you need for a simple relaxing time! Easy qwick beach access, fully equipped kitchen and bunny's right out side on the lawn area!! Vacasa was very easy and reliable to work with. They even gave us an option for late check out till 7pm for a small additional fee of $13.00...WOW..what other places have that!!! I highly reccomend and I will definitely be going back!!
The kitchen was very nice. The bed and sofa sleeper were comfortable. Liked the fireplace. Liked the view. The staff were very helpful and understanding. I mistakenly thought someone was in my cottage. Pursuing information by phone was interesting and funny. The woman apologized that the system was not working well, there was no supervisor for me to speak with and no one they could locate onsite. I thought that I had been scammed and said should I call the police. While the woman was still on the line, I called another Cape Cod number and spoke to another woman with began to assist me. Then a car came with an older couple who I asked questions on procedure. So, between you two wonderful staff members and the couple, I made a complete and udder fool of myself, received perfect help and got a good laugh at myself. Thank you for the humble honor of being a part of that experience. My profound thanks. One little problem I noted. Spiders. 😊🙏
We love the ocean right out your window. View is excellent. Cleanliness of room and furnishings could be better. Uncomfortable chairs and very rickety. Heavy people beware! We were disappointed that the sleeper couch was removed from the living room. No DVD player! So disappointed! We brought new movies to watch.
Hi, Rhonda! We are glad to see you enjoyed the view. We apologize for the disappointments you encountered with your visit. All new items will be in the home when it is updated this year. Thank you!
Location was great, but cabin needs an upgrade and some TLC.
Beach and access was great. Wonderful view of the ocean. Easy to get to and find off the highway.
We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay, Teresa! We look forward to hosting you again soon!
The view was fabulous, and the beach right in your backyard. The place was clean and comfortable.
Love the view... old but i see that there updating. THANKS
The view from the porch was great, and the beach was close. Great location. It was a little musty when we first arrived. But once we opened the windows and aired the place out, it was fine. Also property manager worked with us on booking. When signed up through Booking.com entered 3 adults & 1 kid. But when reservation arrived, it was for 3 adults. Property manager was great to work with and let us have all four in the house. Kind of tight, but we made it work for the family. Worked great for us!
The feeling if being at home but on the beach !!!! Everything you need to cook in the cute little kitchen !!! Front and back door and carport and steps away from beach !!!!
I loved the rustic cabin. My husband and I stayed in these cabins quite often 15-30 years ago and loved it. My husband passed several years ago and I brought my friend. It brought back fond memories. Loved the gas fireplace and the view.
Just steps to the beach. Great views of the oceans.
I am glad to see some up grading going on. I have been visiting your cabins since the middle 1970's and always enjoy them. the face lift is exciting to see.
The path to the beach was nice and the beach of course was awesome! The view from the window was excellent.
We are happy that you enjoyed your stay! We hope you will come back again soon!
Cozy, clean cabin has everything you need for a comfortable get away. Steps from a short pathway to the beach, it has a sweet wooden balcony facing the ocean, perfect for sunset viewing. I really loved the gas fireplace and the connected carport. I recommend this place highly!
Wonderful view and fireplace. Good beach access.
The cottages are nice and cozy. Right on a lovely beach with views! Pet friendly is a plus. They do need updating, which is why they are so cheap! Would stay again!
The setting and location and the beach are perfect and the house was clean but so much stuff was worn out and broken, no comfortable furniture to recline or lay on. The unit above out head was very very noisy, sounded like elephants in the ceiling.
We appreciate the guests feedback. We are sorry for the inconvenience and our Local Manager is working towards getting more comfortable furniture for guest satisfaction.
Rustic. Adorable. Fantastic view with access to a grand beach.
Giving average rating as #4 cottage needs bed upgrade. Getting good rest is sooooo important. And a shower wand would be nice in the teency bathroom stall. lol
right on the beach. great views of the ocean and close enough to both Yachats and Waldport. will stay again.
This little ocean side condo is hard to beat for those seeking a view of the ocean and easy beach access. It's also conveniently located between Waldport and Yachats and is not far from Newport. Hiking, scenery, and restaurants are all nearby. The condo was well appointed. The only drawback (and only a slight one; not disqualifying) was that there was another unit above this one, so occasional footsteps could be heard.
I can't say enough about how great this place is! Adorably rustic, and right on the beach. Clean, cozy, quiet, great parking, plenty of room, super comfy bed, loaded kitchen, fireplace, and the private deck all just made for a terrific couple of days to relax and unwind. Love the cottage feel!
I left my beach trip to last minute and was worried that I would regret it AND I AM SO GLAD I DECIDED TO GO. This home was the perfect size. I stayed in unit 2 and the bed was soo comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed to make a dinner to eat on the balcony, and the beach was isolated and beautiful! My first stay in Waldport and it certainly won't be my last!
The cottages are perfectly located for exploring the coast to the south and to the north. My favorite part was being able to take a quick walk to the beach every morning. The location is ideal.
Great location! Great stretch of beach and very close to Yachats which is a great area. This unit is dated, I would rent unit 10 or 11 if I return as they are truly right on the beach and have larger decks.
Nice location. Staff was very helpful. David was great. He helped with suggestions to make my vacation great.
This is a quaint group of cottages with great ocean views and a fairly easy walk down to the beach with a few stairs. We had a unit with a kitchen and all of the basics were provided. It is older, so don't expect luxury, but it has character and charm, and it was a comfortable stay. It even has a wood burning fireplace. Everything was clean and in good condition inside, although the deck on our unit needs some fixing. We would stay here again, but would choose a unit that did not have a separate unit above, as we had some noisy upstairs neighbors into the early morning hours our second night. We love that we were able to bring our dog!
Cottage was clean and the bed was super comfortable. Great view and easy access to the beach!
Cozy, clean, couldn't have asked for more!
This property had amazing views at a great location. Apartment needs some updating and is quite small, but it’s comfy and cozy. Great bang for the buck.
We loved our stay at this cozy little cottage with an amazing view. We were able to bring our pets and our kids. The nice little kitchen had everything we needed to eat several meals in the home.
We had a wonderful stay on the Coast here. It's perfectly fine, especially when there is so much to do outside. The accomodations are clean and adequate for 2 guests, but I don't recommend it for 4. The sofa bed is not at all comfortable for adults, maybe one child would be ok on it. Also, bring all of your condiments, there is nothing here. The wide beach here is so wonderful for strolling and beach combing and bird/wildlife watching, and nearby Yachats is so charming with nice restaurants.
You can't beat the ocean front view at the Cape Cod Cottages, however, the unit we stayed in could use a full refresh. The bathroom is small and the shower was tiny and didn't have a proper shower head. Kitchen and living room were an ok size. Patio was basic. Overall okay for the price but I likely will not stay here again.
We are sorry to see this guest does not expect to return. It is an older unit, but it's a great location with a true beach vibe.
A nice rustic spot with a lovely view and helpful staff
Make sure to bring salt and olive oil
We loved being right on the water and having the deck to enjoy it- it was perfect!! Steps away from the beach it was wonderful! We will come back next time for sure. The place was very clean and had everything we needed. The kitchen was great we never had to eat out.
We were very happy with the room and location right on the beach. Worth every penny!
Loved the untouched wood walls but updated appliances. The view is great and you can't beat the sound of the waves. Clean beaches, hardly saw anyone else.
The expansive ocean view from our balcony was spectacular, and it was just a short walk down to the beach! I could have sat in my Adirondack Chair all day for weeks and been in heavenly bliss! But, we did venture a few miles to Newport and found many nice places to eat.
We stayed in Unit#4. Room was clean upon arrival. Unit #4 has a deck that we enjoyed. These units were built prior to WW2. Do not expect new carpets , fresh painted walls and so on. The room was very clean and we liked the old look to the room. We will stay again. Very easy access to the beach.
If you want a place to stay simply off by Route 101 in a place feeling like a real beach home, this is the cottage!
Amazing view with the ocean right off our balcony! Close to everything, where we could explore towns on either side of us. I loved having a full kitchen at my disposal to make fresh home-cooked meals, helping us stay within budget, and not at the mercy of limited restaurants.
Despite that our cottage needed a little more dusting and discarding of a sofabed that was not sleep able, our stay was very warm and cozy , and relaxing. Just what we needed .
The Property Manager has followed-up with housekeeping regarding thorough cleaning, and she is currently working with the owner on replacing the furniture. Thank you!
We had a great long weekend here at one of the cottages. The view of the ocean from the deck and from the front window was awesome. For a quiet, simple getaway this is a nice place with very few people around and great beach access.
Microwave is dead. Love the new dishes, silverware and pots and pans! Bed was comfortable. View excellent! Had a great time appreciated the late checkout and fireplace. The lady came by with beach towels was so nice😍
Overall, cute and rustic cabin. Wood burning fireplace. Furniture not very comfortable for relaxing and watching tv in the evening. Very quiet with the exception of the road noice from the hwy. Beautiful view from deck and very easy access to beach.
Love the view out the back window and door. Would have liked to have had a grill on the back deck
Nothing beats a cottage with a fireplace on the beach.
Great view easy access to a nice beach. Cottage #4 needs some deep cleaning and updated furnishings.
Nice property right on the beach with a fantastic view. Has a separate bedroom, plus a sofa bed in the living room
Had a lovely 3 night stay. Very close to Hwy 101 and traffic begins at 6:00 am so bring earplugs! I would definitely stay here again!
This was a wonderful place to stay. Very clean and well equipped. The location great with views that go on forever. We enjoyed every bit of it and wish we could have stayed longer. We will be returning
My now fiancé and I stayed for two nights and three days and it was just perfect for the two of us. Nice little getaway. Very cozy. The beach view is so pretty. He actually asked me to marry him while we were there. Just the perfect moment on the beach. It truly was beautiful. We are already talking about planning a trip back in the future.
The view of the beach from the room is amazing. There were some hot tubs lined up behind the cottage that you do notice from the deck but not enough to take away from the view. The cottage was very comfortable and had plenty of room for 4 people. It has a rustic feel which is exactly what we were looking for. We will absolutely stay there again.
The cabins are really run down and in need of major upgrades and repairs. I'll stay here again because the view and beach are amazing! The cabin is basically just a place to sleep I between swimming and beach combing. The price is a bit hefty for what it is. A major remodel would make this a much better place to stay.
We loved our stay at Cape Cod Cottages, and Big Stump Beach. Mid-April accorded us solitary walks on the beach, and we had easy access to six miles of beach from the cottage. We even saw a pack of seals playing in the surf on one of our morning walks! Great place to stay
Even though there could be some updated furnishings, fixtures and appliances, overall the place was clean and the views from the deck were amazing (aside from the new hot tubs?) But for the price, this was a great value!
The #4 unit (we also rented #5) was clean and well kept. Although they are dated (think staying in your great grandmas's apartment) they are well appointed and were much nicer than staying in a Motel 6 . There is covered parking for the lower units (smaller cars or crossover suvs would fit) and an AWESOME beach with limited public access (but lots of private access) so we had the beach to ourselves most of the time.
The bedding smelled so nice and fresh, and everything was tidy.
Bring your own bedding if you intend to use the sleeper sofa, as they only have pillows and a light blanket for it.
The day staff is very friendly and helpful...all in all, a wonderful experience.
This little cottage is a great deal considering the views and beach access. It has an updated flat screen TV, which it doesn't show in the pictures, and was a nice update. The bed was comfortable and we slept well the second night we were there. The first night, we arrived late and found no sheets on the hide-away bed where my 12 year old son was to sleep. I didn't feel comfortable letting his sleep on the bare mattress so he slept in the room with me and my husband slept on the couch. The website said there were games, but upon arrival we only found and empty box of cards. Kitchen was well stocked with kitchen gear but no steak knives.
One warning that isn't apparent from the website: once we got the check-in/out info, found out we were required to wash and put away dishes. Of course I usually always keep up on the dishes when staying at a rental but to be required to do so, especially after paying a large fee on top of the price per night. There are also rules in the cottage itself to take out trash and sweep and vacuum before departure. When I am on vacation, the last thing I want to do is the job of the cleaning people, especially when check-out is at 11am.
Overall it was a good deal, but definitely not up to my usual Vacasa standards. For what you get for the money, I can stay in a similar place in Lincoln City without all the rules. I love Vacasa but this has been my least favorite place I have stayed with them.
Thank you for taking the time to send us this review. We are so pleased to here that you enjoyed the cottage and the beautiful views and beach access. We apologize for the extra signage in the units that may conflict with what is emailed to you. We will be doing a complete remodel of the cottages in the next few months and will have plenty of dishes and utensils for our guests as well as new furniture. We hope that you will return next year and see what we have done with them. Thanks again for this review, we look forward to having you as a guest again.
We loved the location and the view, but sitting outside on splintery chairs with nails sticking out took a lot of the pleasure out of it. The kitchen needed more attention in terms of available pots and pans, there were plenty of dishes, a couple of small knives would help with food preparation.
The signs in the unit were completely outdated, speaking of using the phone (none available) just lets the customer know that attention to detail is not top priority.
We would come back if things were cleaned up and updated.
Right on the beach, with easy access down to the sand. Sunsets were glorious, stars were beautiful, fireplace made the evening relaxing. Grass right outside the door to walk the dog. Loved it.
We enjoyed our stay there very much and are planning to come back!!
We enjoyed our stay here - property was clean, view was amazing. Upstairs guest was up at 2 am, and walking around making noise until morning (not something within management control, I understand) but future guests should be aware of noise levels between units.
We apologize that another guest made your sleep difficult and are glad to see that it didn't detract from your overall experience too much. These units do offer terrific views and are very affordable! Thank you!
I love that the cottages are right on the beach in such a lovely location ! Cliff Douglas was most accommodating as well as the staff that was on site. I would stay here again, I stayed in cabin 4, but was also shown cabin 11, which in the future I would love to rent. The location to the sound of the surf can't be beat ! The location is great to both north and south coast interesting things to do.
My wife and I wanted to get away from Portland for an overnight trip, and this property was perfect. The cottage was in great condition and the fireplace was greatly appreciated over the evening for games and hot chocolates. Warmed up very quickly when we turned on the heat, and the sunny deck was peaceful and amazing.
over all a good place too stay.
Cape Cod Cottage #4 gave us a wonderful view of crashing waves, passing seals and even whales. Access to the beach great. Bring gum boots so crossing streams is easy so you can go for long walks in either direction. The bed was very comfortable and the facilities adequate. The price was an excellent value. The Shower is small but the water hot.
I am thrilled to hear that you enjoyed this property along with the close beach access it provides. Thank you for taking the time to let us know. We hope you will visit again soon!
A beautiful spot to stay and so great that the path to beach is right around the corner of the house! Everything was right there to have a great stay. We will definitely be back again
The cabin was great and clean, but the floors were freezing constantly, and the shower room was tiny, but overall it was a good cabin, good location with great direct beach access!
Had a very good experience here. Great view of the ocean and very easy access to the beach. Would recommend staying here.
You cannot beat the view at any price! Very Quiet and relaxing.
If you are planning an off-grid time, this is the place for you.
WiFi is available if you perch under the deck of the office for connection. My Verizon phone didn't work from the kitchen table very well.
Check the fuse box for anything having been tripped before expecting the bathroom plug in to work.
This is NOT the place to stay if you cannot walk down a steep decline AND down a flight of stairs to get to the beach. Sunsets were magnificent.
Do not expect rapid response to concerns nor finding anyone in the "office" at any time.
Bring your own sharp knives and an extra roll of TP.
We appreciate you leaving your review with us and apologize for the inconveniences you experienced. The property manager is aware of your comments and appreciate the suggestions for improvement. We hope to see you again!
The cottage is very comfortable with an amazing view. There is relatively easy beach access. It's quite old but brings back fond memories. Nothing fancy about it which adds to the charm. We will do it again.
We had a few issues at the beginning with supplies, etc, since no one is on site now with the new management except housekeepers between 11:00 and 4:00, but this is our fifth year here. The location is perfect and it is great to have a living room, bedroom and kitchen. Also to hear the ocean and have a great view and easy beach access.
Thank you for your feedback. We're so glad to hear that this is an annual visit for you. Vacasa recently took over management of this great location and we look forward to making improvements in service. We hope to see you next year!
