I love the house, location, service , everything too
Mary O. Nov 2021
Cute updated & cozy cottage with nice view of the ocean & bay...great little kitchen, nice bathroom with big shower and washer/dryer. Comfy beds and bedding.
Holly F. Sep 2021
Nicely updated bath and kitchen, stocked with everything we needed to feel at home. Comfy, stylish furniture and huge windows looking out at the water! We loved our stay and our walks in the sand right in front of the place. We could see seals/sea lions swimming in the bay with the binoculars provided. Sunsets were so pretty to watch right from the dining room table! Clean, comfortable, and good communication. Would rent from Vacasa again. Thank you!
Jen B. Aug 2021
Cute, comfortable little house that was great for our family of 3 plus dog. The covered porch was great for sunny cups of coffee in the morning and the deck on the opposite side was awesome for sunset cocktails. Beach and store both close to walk to. Had everything we needed in the house.
Manager response:
Thank you for your generous review, Jen. We are very glad to hear that you found our home to be cute and comfortable! We greatly appreciate you taking the time to share this valuable feedback with us and we have shared your private comments with our local manager to review with the homeowner. We hope to have the chance to host you again soon!

Clean, updated cozy cottage. Had all amenities for full kitchen use and nice large bathroom.
June H. Aug 2021
Great views from the living room/dining room. Easy access to the beach. Large bathroom, comfortable beds and fully stocked kitchen. Lovely outdoor sitting/eating areas.
Dishes and under sink needed better cleaning.
Chandra L. Jul 2021
There were a lot of amazing aspects of this home. The view from the dining room is amazing, particularly during high tide. It is quick walk to the beach. The home comes with 2 kayaks and 2 bikes. There is an amazing coffee shop within walkable distance (Seaworthy Coffee and Gifts). Nevor is a short drive and is an amazing seafood market with a lunch counter. There are a few negatives or considerations--the house sleeps six but the home is very small. The house would be perfect for a family with 2 or fewer children. There was only one room with a nice mattress. The kitchen is very small with minimal counter space for meal prep and does not have a dishwasher.
Manager response:
Hi Chandra, Thank you for sharing your feedback! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we'll pass your comments regarding bed comfort onto our management team for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

Fantastic views of the ocean!
Julie C. May 2021
We had a wonderful 3-day break at the Bear's Den! Amazing job with the blue and bear-themed decor. Spotted seals, blue herons, a bald eagle, and lots of other birds from the great big windows with the help of the binoculars. Walked to the Schooner for dinner one night, grilled burgers at the den for another. Was a 20m drive up to Cape Meares where we spent 2 hours exploring and got lots of spectacular views. Otherwise, just enjoyed the comfy furniture, chatting with cups of tea or reading. Would definitely stay again - thank you!
Margaret A. Jan 2021
Bears Den is a great place to stay. The bikes, kayaks and covered outdoor eating area with grill and sink are a real bonus.
The location has a wonderful view of the bay.
Will be back.
Tom P. Dec 2020
Bear’s Den provided a comfortable and restful place for a family of four. Great views of crabbers in Netarts Bay, ocean waves and beach goers at Happy Camp. Very close to Netarts groceries and beach access.
Kimberley J. Nov 2020
Cute cottage with outstanding views. Very well appointed including the fully functional kitchen and laundry. Getting to the beach was easy, but not so much if you are older or physically handicapped. Parking was very convenient and we were so close to the grocery store when we needed things!
Jennifer W. Nov 2020
We absolutely loved our stay at the Bear’s Den!! Such a beautiful and welcoming space with everything you need to enjoy your stay in beautiful Netarts. The interior is so stylish and comfortable, and we loved watching sunsets from the deck. Plenty of toys (kayaks, bikes, crab traps) available at the house to keep you busy outside too. Just steps away from the path down to the beach, and just around the corner from a great little market. We love the Bear’s Den and can’t wait to return!
Olivia B. Oct 2020
Excellent place to stay! VERY clean and great views of the ocean, with quick access! Lots of towels, beach and bath. We'll be back for sure!
Sara L. Aug 2020
We loved the access to the beach, star gazing, and eating at Schooners Restaurant nearby. If you visit Cape Lookout then try to start early in the day as the hikes are 1-2 hours one way. The house was clean and well maintained.
Jimmi H. Aug 2020
Great little house! We have been visiting Netarts Bay for years and it was so nice to have a place with a view and so cute!
Karla B. Aug 2020
The cabin was super cute with efficient use of space. Overall design was spectacular and house had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. Steps to beach less than a block away. We did not use the kayaks (could not find life jackets). Bed in the room w/a porch could use a new mattress, there were some big soft spots that you ‘fell’ into.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Karla. We are so glad you were happy with the home. We have advised the owners to consider updating the mattress, and we have verified the location of the paddles and lifejackets is noted in the Trip Manager our guests are provided with for their stay. We hope to see you again!
Chrissy E. Aug 2020
The place is so nice great decor everything was perfect inside. Close to the beach great views. Loved that there are khakis there for use and bikes. House was super clean and kitchen had everything you needed . Definitely stay again
Alissa L. Jul 2020
House had amazing views of the bay and outdoor patio for relaxin in the sun. We had a great time!
Geneva C. Jul 2020
We rented this house on the weekend of July 4th. Before we arrived, Vacasa sent us notices about how it's increased its cleaning for Covid-19. Don't believe it. When we arrived, we found the house to be horribly dirty: dog hairs everywhere, urine stained mattress pad on sofa bed, dirty towel, filthy floors and couch. I called Vacasa to complain. They sent cleaners to clean up. The whole issue inconvenienced us for 2 hours. Vacasa refunded us $200 for our troubles. But when you're paying originally $435/night (w/fees), you'd expect much a better remedy.
Manager response:
Sunday, July 26, 2020 8:12 PM Thank you for your review, Geneva. We apologize for the issues you experienced upon your arrival. We have spoken with our housekeeping team to ensure future guests experience a clean and accommodating home for their stay. As our team promptly corrected the issues you experienced and provided new linens, we are unable to refund a night's stay, but we were happy to compensate for the inconvenience you experienced. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again in the future for a much more enjoyable stay.
Amber G. Jun 2020
We had a wonderful time staying in Netarts at this adorable little beach home. It was clean, modern, and had plenty of space for us. We enjoyed the balcony and many windows with views of the bay, the 2 cruiser bikes, and kayaks. It was also great to have beach access so closeby. We would definitely stay again if we were in the area.
Joy M. Jun 2020
Bears Den was such a fun getaway for my husband and I to enjoy as our honeymoon stay! The place was beautiful and very cozy, and had all we needed for a weeks stay. The beach view was perfect and so lovely to enjoy being that close to the water! The location was really nice as well, a perfect distance to go to Cape Kiwanda and not too far away to travel to Lincoln City and Sea Side!

We really enjoyed our stay, and hope to plan another trip soon!
Katrina D. Mar 2020
What a gem of a vacation spot! Fantastic views, easy walk to the beach, everything you need for a fantastic getaway! Thank you!
Lori P. Mar 2020
This property could not be set up any better! The space is beautiful and the view is outstanding! We saw whales, otters, seals, birds of all types, sunsets, moon rises and sets all from the comfort of the home while having our coffee! We are already planning a return visit! Shower carefully though! A glass door would save a lot of wet towels!😎
Emily C. Mar 2020
This house is precious and Netarts - believe it or not - has more than other towns nearby, including a coffee shop and two markets. (No restaurants.) Oceanside is walkable in low tide for a meal at Blue Agate or Roseanna's.

House is super super precious and the sofa bed is great - 6 people is definitely possible.
Ellen D. Feb 2020
We enjoyed our stay in this cozy cottage. The decor was lovely. The view was pretty with the exception of the cottage in front and apartment beside. Did hear children next door early one morning. The bed in the bedroom overlooking the ocean needs a new mattress. The mattress has a large dip on one side, not super comfortable. The shower head is a bit too powerful and there is no shower curb so that sprays water all over the bathroom floor. Close to a coffee shop & beach access.
Manager response:
Hi, Ellen! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Shower pressure is controlled by the lever, an extra cleaning has been completed, and we will turn the mattresses. Thank you!
Michelle L. Dec 2019
A little beach hideaway. Perfect for a romantic tryst or some beach fun between close friends.
Molly B. Nov 2019
Loved this place so much, we came back a few weeks later! Great access to the beach just down the road and super cozy interior to spend the evenings.
Elizabeth D. Nov 2019
Really enjoyed our time in this little house. The decor is fantastic. Every inch of the space is well layed out/used and there are lots of different places to be: the back deck, a front deck, a dining room table, an outdoor table, xcetera. It was sparkling clean and really cozy. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that while you have a view of the ocean you also have a big view of the roof of the house that's in front of this unit and a sad looking apartment building to the right. That said, I would stay here again in a heartbeat. We loved being able to walk from this home down to the beach which seemed to go on forever. Also appreciate being able to use the bikes and that helmets were available too!!
Molly R. Nov 2019
We loved our stay at the Bear’s Den! The view was incredible and the house was well equipped and perfectly decorated. It’s a small space, but well planned out. We can’t wait to go back!
Lindsay B. Nov 2019
The house was super cute, adorable decorations and design that makes use of every inch of this small dwelling. Nice view and easy beach access, too. The dishes in the kitchen weren’t all that clean, so everything we used had to be hand washed again before use (no dishwasher) and the knifes we so dull they were hard to cook with. We also had zero water pressure out of the shower the first morning which was a horrible way to start the day—barely able to rinse shampoo or soap, and we couldn’t shower our 2 1/2 year old at all. I was angry to say the least. But we called Vacasa to report the problem and they had someone out in a few hours. Super helpful guy who got it working great for our next morning. So A+ response on that one downside.
Manager response:
We apologize for the oversight with the dishes. Guests are responsible for washing their own dishes, but we will remind housekeeping to always check them. Thank you!
Caroline C. Oct 2019
Lovely home with Bay views and easy access to walk down for beach walks. Functional kitchen with all the cooking equipment you might need a a lovely bbq area with space to clean up and fuss with any fish your crabs you may acquire. We would have loved to have a slightly better shower set up, the water really just trickles out the head and we would have loved a black out curtain the bedroom. Perfect price for the home though
shawn David s. Sep 2019
Super well decorated, beautiful view, nice large bathroom.
Kristien S. Sep 2019
Loved the view the decor the thoughtfulness of the kitchen supplies. Very clean and comfortable. Would return for sure.
Nathalie M. Aug 2019
Everything was great!
Michelle D. Jul 2019
What a perfect little home! Just the right size for a couples' getaway (plus a pup). The back deck provides breathtaking views of the sunset, and we made good use of the kayaks, beach cruiser bikes, and easy beach access. Steps away from a couple of local markets, so you can spend all day without driving anywhere for supplies or activities. Multiple sinks made cleaning sand off shoes a total snap. I'm already planning my next getaway.

Misc notes: that the home is right up against an apartment building (with friendly residents) and motel, and there isn't a dishwasher in the home.
Vasil E. Jul 2019
Best view that changes everyday. Not just a beach view but one where you can watch people go clamming, stand up paddle boarding and kayaking and boating. The town people are fantastic everyone is so nice and neighborly. I will go back for sure. Easy drive to all surrounding locations.
Ryan K. May 2019
This place was beyond perfect. It was clean and comfortable. Adorable decor. Just a short walk down to the beach, however if you are older and have a hard time with steps or navigating over a few rocks to access the beach that could be difficult but other than that this is the place to stay. Our kids loved the kayaks and bikes! We felt right at home.
Brian B. Apr 2019
Our visit at The Bear’s Den was wonderful! Very clean, very comfortable and a close walk to the beach. Can’t wait to visit again!
Claire Q. Apr 2019
The Bear's Den was a very lovely place to spend our family vacation. The location is quiet and relaxing, with friendly locals. The cottage was immaculate, comfortable, and very well-stocked (I was able to prepare meals and the hubby was able to grill ribs without worrying about the lack of cookware and utensils). I look forward to vacationing here again!
Nadine L. Apr 2019
We spent a few days in Netarts with our three kids. The house was beyond anything we could have hoped. It was clean and stylish. The kitchen was well stocked and the bathroom was squeaky clean. There were stairs to get down to the beach and a hose out front to wash off all the sand. I would stay here again and again.
Kristen N. Apr 2019
I loved the layout, the decor, the shower, stack w/d, the lighting, blankets, cushions & sectional. The deck was fun for clam digger watching & stargazing.
The location is just enough off the hwy to be quiet & close to the beach. The bicycles, covered outdoor seating, ample parking & bbq are such a nice bonus.
Emily L. Mar 2019
I absolutely loved my stay here. The view is fantastic and the home is so cute and very clean. Will definitely stay again!
Maggie K. Mar 2019
My husband and I booked this beach home for a spontaneous getaway and it couldn't have been better! It has been recently remodeled and is beautifully maintained. The home was impeccably clean, well stocked, and in a great location. The view from the living room and dining room is spectacular! We can't wait to come back!
