It was clean and perfect for our family, the kids loved the staircase! It wasn’t super easy to navigate as a heavier adult but it wasn’t that bad at all! Beautiful view and a lovely Doe with her twin fawns came to visit!

We arrived around sunset and the views were simply stunning! The proximity to the state parks and beach were also perfect for our exploring. Highly recommend to any who want to relax and recharge!

Cute home, private and quiet. Exactly what we were looking for. Easy access to beaches and downtown.

Great feeling, wonderful views.
Jessica K. Jul 2021
Cute for a quiet relaxing getaway. Was pretty disappointed that the trail to the beach no longer exists. Furniture is wore out and not very comfortable, yards needs maintained more, and not very kid friendly.
Mark B. Jul 2021
This house was really a treat! Wildlife in the yard, a view of the ocean, and peace and quiet. It had everything we were looking for. Had a great time.

The view was outstanding, the bedrooms provided much needed comfort. Loved the selection of books. It would have been nice for the living room to have a recliner type chair, and the outside could use better yard furniture and a grill.
Otherwise, we loved the house and all of its other amenities. It made our stay on the beach very relaxing! We will definitely return!
Manager response:

A beautiful spot on the Oregon coast. Quiet and peaceful. Stairs to loft are tight to get up. Has most everything we needed. Could not find trail (listed in description of house) to coast and no instructions in the house for anything such as recycle rules, trail directions, heating, etc. Lots-and lots of books and plenty of kitchen supplies. A nice place overall.

This is a gem location with a very basic level of amenities and a drop dead killer view of the ocean and big sunsets. The wifi was adequate which is a plus, too. Good access to coastal walking trails. Good local grocery store just a few minutes drive. Check out the whales off the port!

Love this spot!!! A very quiet peaceful place. Great views and well protected from the wind. Easy walking to the park point and to town. Thank you

This house was the perfect size for two adults, and filled to the brim with amazing literature. The house was full of natural light and on a peaceful lot with views of the ocean.
Chris R. Jan 2021
This home is the perfect size, perfect location, and is loaded with personal touches that really make it cozy. We loved exploring the book selection (easily 400 books to choose from) and couldn't tear our eyes away from the view (no TV needed with windows like this.) We used this as a jumping off point for the Wild Rivers Coast Scenic Bikeway and it made for an excellent loop starting and ending at the house. One of the best rides/vacation homes I've been to and would love to return!

The privacy was the thing I most enjoyed. It felt like our own little ocean view house, with no nosy neighbors or anything of the sort. All of the books were a great way to spend an afternoon, leading up to a beautiful sunset over the ocean from the loft. Wonderful experience!

This house was amazing ! The look out from the most amazing loft was the jewel of the crown. Serene, private, quiet and perfect. Woke up to a rainbow and a sweet little doe looking in at me while i cooked breakfast. Enjoy!

This little cottage was a lovely break from our hotel stays on our road trip. It was just for overnight but we found the place very clean, inviting and comfortable.

Pick up dinner at Golden Harvest and while it's cooking you can enjoy a glass of Oregon wine and watch the sunset over the ocean view. Perhaps you'll get a visit from the deer as you head off to the trails or Battle Rock in the morning. A convenient launch spot to all types of great coastal fun.
Fei C. Jul 2019
Loved the view and location. House is clean too.
Great view
Angela D. Aug 2018
A great spot for a small family. Our 5 and 7 year old thought that the loft was the bomb. Be forewarned though that the stairs to the loft are very very skinny and not safe for for the youngest kids. Views were great and we had lots of deer visit!
Rachel P. Aug 2018
Great getaway. House is very private. View is amazing. We will definitely be back!
michael f. Jul 2018
Only sounds of the sea and excellent spot for observing the night sky. Only drawbacks were full trash receptacles and bins outside and some ants in kitchen. Still nice enough for 5 stars.
Manager response:
Sugar ants are fairly common on the coast, but we have set bait traps to handle this in the future. The trash issue is being addressed as well. Thanks!

This house, while small and best for no more than four people, feels larger because it has an open design and looks out onto nature and a great distant view of the sea. It is far away from other houses, so it has privacy and a nature yard for the children to play and make noise.
Joel D. Jun 2018
Great privacy with a close walk to the beach.
