This house was cozy with great views!
James T. Mar 2022
I will start with the positives that this house offers. First, with the ocean in your backyard (literally), the views of the ocean from the main living area and backyard are OUTSTANDING. My father in law saw multiple whale spouts out in the distance while sitting on the couch in the living room. Second, the backyard area is great and easily accessible through the sliding glass door that leads directly to the backyard. We spent a lot of our time in the backyard just sitting and enjoying the ocean views, and we used the fire pit to make s’mores. There is also a covered area in the backyard, underneath the perch, that I enjoyed sitting at when it was raining. Also, great bbq in the covered area in the backyard and propane was provided. Third, great shower water pressure in the bathroom that is adjacent to the bunk bed room. Fourth, the house is mostly one level (with the exception of two steps to get into the front door and two steps off the back deck to get into the backyard), which was important and appreciated by my elderly father in law. Fifth, it looks like there is a brand new washer and dryer in this house.

Now, the negatives. This house had a serious ant problem that we had to contend with each day of our stay, from day one to day seven. We found ants in both bedrooms and both bathrooms, and the living room/dining room area, and around the kitchen sink. We alerted Vacasa of the ant issue on our first day and, to Vacasa’s credit, Vacasa offered to come out and “spray” to take care of the ants. We have two kids and two dogs, and we didn’t want any chemicals from the spray to harm our family, so we declined that offer from Vacasa. Vacasa also offered to come out and set bait traps, which they did, while Vacasa admitted that the bait traps would not be a quick solution (it wasn’t, and we didn’t see a reduction in ants after the traps were set).

Due to the ants, our stay went from the potential of being “excellent” (five stars) to just being “good” (three stars). Being on the constant lookout for ants everywhere in the house and on our stuff (we found ants on our toothbrush the first day we were there, so we had to keep our toiletries tucked away during our entire stay), combined with the fact that my youngest daughter (five years old) screamed every time she saw an ant in different parts of the house, was mentally taxing and tainted an otherwise great stay. My mother in law also found an ant on her arm when she was in bed one morning, and I found one on my leg when I was sitting at the dining room table. We also had to be vigilant of the ant situation around our dog’s food bowls, as we discovered ants all over the dog food one of the days early in our stay.

Negative #2 - from this house, including the two nearest public access points on 8th Street and 9th Street, the beach was not accessible to my elderly father in law. The public access points had steep rocky steps to get to the beach, with no handrail. The closest access point that was doable for my father in law was about three blocks away at Rockaway Beach Resort, which provided normal wooden stairs with a handrail to get to the beach; however, I think this staircase is privately owned by the Resort and is not for public use.

Negative #3 is a combination of multiple small concerns. There wasn’t any laundry detergent available for the washing machine. With March Madness in full swing, we couldn’t find any of the basketball games on any of the channels on the TV, so we had to just stream the games on the internet. My father in law would like to add - A printed out channel guide to the tv would have been appreciated. And the DVD player was not working (there is a small collection of DVDs and we tried watching Night at the Museum one of the days when it was raining, and the DVD player wasn’t working).

Overall, we generally enjoyed our stay here, despite the ant situation. The main appeal of this house is the view of the ocean, and the views and roar of the ocean from the backyard is incredible. I hope whoever stays here next gets to enjoy an ant-free experience.
Manager response:
Hi, James! We're happy you chose to stay with us and appreciate your feedback. The home has been treated for ants, and we are replacing the HDMI cord for the DVD player. Thank you!

Very nice house with beautiful view of the ocean. This is our third stay at the SeaFarer and we are never disappointed. Easy access to the beach is a short walk from the front door. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms makes this home a wonderful place to stay. Very comfortable living and eating space as well. Kitchen is well stocked, only thing missing was a tea kettle. We will keep coming back here, this has been our "go to" place to stay on the Oregon Coast!
Barbara E Symons Survivor T. Feb 2022
I love how the home is decorated; how everything you need is included; the view and sound of the ocean!
Anne M. Jan 2022
We loved how close to the ocean we were. Also having a bonfire in January was pretty special!
David T. Dec 2021
Clean, well managed, and wonderful view.
Barbara W. Dec 2021
We had a wonderful stay at SeaFarer! Sweet little cabin with comfortable beds, very clean, and with everything we might have needed.
There was a broken part on the toilet but the manager came over immediately and repaired it. Very quick response, very professional, and polite!
Thanks Vacasa for a great getaway to our beautiful Oregon coast!
Marjorie A L. Oct 2021
The SeaFarer has one of the best ocean views on the Oregon Coast. The house is clean and comfortable and with two bedrooms AND two bathrooms it cannot be beat. Beds and linens are nice, the living area is also very nice with two couches and wall to wall/floor to ceiling windows. The outdoor space is also fantastic with a picnic table and fire pit. This is our second time renting this house and we will continue to come back here, we were not disappointed.
Andrew C. Aug 2021
The Home was comfortable and inviting. We enjoyed the outdoor rocking chair and fire pit.
Richard G. Jul 2021
This place is great - nothing fancy, but clean and perfect location. Our family enjoyed it very much. (could use a couple more outlets in the bedrooms & bathrooms), but really nice for the cost.
Dan R. Apr 2021
The house was very clean and everything promised was true, plus the view was great.
Donna N. Feb 2021
The best thing about this place is the view. Period. Very dated. Few amenities. Bring your own kitchen utensils and wine glasses and laundry and dish soap. There is active construction of a new home 10’ from the front door. It is 9:12 pm and the workers are still there. A cement truck was blocking all parking spots when we returned at 5 today so we are parked illegally in the grass nearby. Noisy construction from early morning until late at night. Would not come here again until construction completed and basic amenities improved.
Manager response:
We apologize you were unhappy with your experience. We do provide dish soap and have restocked any kitchen items in low supply. Thank you, Donna!
Gary H. Feb 2021
Cozy house with a great view that's right on the beach. Although you do have to walk 1/2 block to get beach access. We especially liked the raised enclosed perch with great views and windows all around. Very clean and comfortable. Having access to a garage is especially convenient during rainy/stormy weather.
The one complaint is that 1/2 the burners didn't work. And the 2 that do work are at such an angle that cooking some things is difficult. Especially critical since eating out is difficult during these covid times. Stove needs to be replaced.
Manager response:
Hi, Gary! Thank you for letting us know about the burners; they have been repaired and are good to go. We hope to see you again!
Elizabeth J L. Feb 2021
Loved everything about this house. View, big sofas, great mattresses, funky kitchen, 2 bathrooms, all of it! I can see why you have to book a year out. This is February and it felt great to find an Oct. opening.
Theresa D. Jan 2021
Wow. Just wow! We loved hanging out in the tower. The views are fantastic. Also the couches are suuuuper comfy. The beds aren't as good as the one I have at home... buuuut I am pretty spoiled on the home front. Plus beds are a personal feel thing. We loved our stay and feel fortunate to be able to enjoy it.
Mark G. Jan 2021
Loved the vibe and layout. Bring your own firewood as none is provided. TV is too small relative to where it sits on mantle. The blue chairs in the photo are not there anymore. Fireplace leaks a lot of smoke into house. Since power was out and it was our only option for heat, we also had to have doors and windows open to vent smoke out. So it was kind of like being outside by the fire, but actually inside bundled up. Still loved our stormy stay during the king tide of the year!
Kathy V. Dec 2020
We were looking for a house that was right on the beach, and where we could bring my dog. This house fit the bill perfectly. It had everything we needed, and a bonus was the additional space in what I will call the tower. Fabulous place to look at the sunset!
Annette C. Nov 2020
The view! Very old house needs upgrades! Microwave was on top of the refrigerator! Huge safety problems, had to use step stool to use microwave very dangerous! Dirty dishes, no dishwasher!! Half the burners on stove didn’t work. Needs a new safe kitchen!!
Manager response:
We appreciate your input, Annette, and apologize your stay was not more enjoyable. The burners on the stove have been reconnected and are working well, and the microwave has been moved. Thank you!
Bryce O. Oct 2020
Our family loves this place... Beds for everyone... & the view can't be beat!! It's our happy place..!!
Todd H. Oct 2020
You won't get a better view. There is a bench overlooking the beach. The location is great. Quiet neighborhood. Well stocked home. We would stay again.
Kelly T. Aug 2020
We loved staying in this beachy home. Easy access to the beach, plenty of cooking utensils and a great firepit for roasting marshmallows. This place had everything we needed for a relaxing stay- we will definitely be back. Kid friendly also.
Urmil B. Aug 2020
Absolutely amazing and stunning views - easy beach access. Clean and well stocked. Three requests - need standing fans in bedrooms as evenings and nights become hot and bit stuffy - also, ceiling fan in living room needs repair. As this house is pet friendly, would highly recommend leather couch - my wife got an allergic reaction by sitting on the cloth couch. Also, clean towels would help. Overall, worth the money spent and looking forward to having this vacation again.
Manager response:
Hi, Urmil! Your feedback is so appreciated. We have verified the ceiling fan works, and housekeeping has cleaned it and thoroughly cleaned and vacuumed the couches. The owner will also be providing freestanding fans to the home for guest use. Thank you!
Beau R. Jul 2020
We just spent a delightful 3 night stay at the Seafarer, which was perfect (well, almost) for our multi-generational gathering, giving us plenty of room to comfortably distance within the house and enjoy the wonderful location. We utilized the fire pit every night to make our s'mores. The house was well stocked with just about any kitchen item one could want and there were 2 full bags of sand castle tools and molds for our annual competition.
The reason we are rating the house a 4 is because of some significant cleaning issues. Although the kitchen and bathrooms were cleaned as expected, the animal hair on the mattress pad was disgusting (our daughter had brought her own sheets) and the number of hair "bunnies" floating around the floor and cobwebs in the corners did not reflect the "thorough" cleaning as promised.
Fix the cleaning issues and, even though the property is a little run down, our family would give it a 5 star rating.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Beau. We apologize for any cleanliness oversights and will remind our housekeeping staff to be more thorough in the future. We hope to see you again!
Brandi C. Jul 2020
I loved the viewing tower because it gave my teens a separate place to relax. I also really appreciated the beach toys because it gave my little guy exactly what he needed to “dig the biggest hole ever” on the beach.

If you are looking for luxury this is not the place for you but if you are looking for a cozy a beach house with amazing views, easy beach access and a wonderful fire pit, I highly recommend this house.

An added bonus was the garage. We were able to park our car in there so it was off the road.
Joe D. Jul 2020
Easy bach access just 2 houses down. Amazing views from the home. Nice outside patio, covered area, and fire pit overlooking the ocean. The separate raised structure is a fun treat and offers even better views.
Mike H. Jul 2020
Great location comfortable home
Catherine T. Jun 2020
We loved the firepit, excellent beachfront, all the windows and the lookout space.
Keith J. Mar 2020
We had a great weekend getaway. House is in a perfect location, fantastic views, and kitchen is well stocked.
Nicole S. Jan 2020
This home sat right on the water. Was a comfy and cozy spot with a great fireplace and perfect views. Super dog friendly and clean. It’s not super fancy pants- so it depends on what you’re looking for.. if you are looking for a place to bring your dog, relax and just enjoy the coast at a responsible price point this place if for you and your four-legged companion.
Brenda S. Jan 2020
All I wanted was to unplug from the world and watch the ocean and this was the perfect little house for it. Quiet off season, beautiful ocean view, long walks on the beach. When I'm stressed my day dreams will go right back to this stay.
Donna R. Dec 2019
We loved our stay at this house. Excellent view, comfortable house and easy walk along the beach to town.
Chrissie W. Nov 2019
Cute little home! Favorite place was up in the perch, drinking coffee in the mornings, reading and beach watching❤
Ginger B. Oct 2019
Beautiful sunsets! The beach is right there, although you will need to walk down some rocks or you can just walk up the street to some stairs. Would definitely stay here again
stacy h. Sep 2019
the living kitchen and dining were all one so we were all together. the view of the beach was so huge.
Garret B. Sep 2019
Great little place, pricey cleaning fee for the condition we found it in but nonetheless a great little get away with an awesome sitting room upstairs!
Joe D. Sep 2019
The outside patio and fireplace overlooking the beach, the separate raised sitting room with beach views, and easy access to the beach really made this home stand out. Highly recommend.
James H. Jul 2019
We picked up our daughter at the Seattle airport after she returned from teaching overseas for 3 years. We drove to SeaFarer and spent 3 days of heaven on the beach! Amazing beach views and access, quiet home to sit and read, relax and reconnect. We loved the raised loft/sitting area for sitting and taking in the ocean views and sounds as a wonderful bonus- extra little get-away spot.

The home's age/decor is nothing too impressive, but typical of homes in the Rockaway beach area. The location and comfortable, adequate furnishings with the spectacular ocean frontage, along with a reasonable price, made this a wonderful retreat place for us.
Jeff B. Jul 2019
Great location, great view, easy to get to, and very comfortable! Look forward to our next stay there!
Suresh K. Jun 2019
Great location! Beach access requires rock climbing which we didn’t anticipate with elderly parents in tow. That was disappointing. The view is spectacular. Bring firewood. The fire pit is a nice touch while enjoying the sunset. The beach is perfect for kite flying.
Wendy C. Jun 2019
The location was amazing. Beach access was easy and ocean views to get lost in. Town was an easy walk for kites, ice cream, and pizza.

We enjoyed the stay and even with the cold weather the indoor fireplace and high loft- crow's nest library made it cozy and fun!

Loved every minute!!
Sarah B. Jun 2019
Home located right on the beach. Super cute house. Our best vacation to date!
Joanne M. May 2019
The house is beautifully situated on the beach, with beach access just a couple of houses down. The house was very clean, and the owners have provided thoughtful touches, plenty of linens, cookware and even a bowl for your pet's food.
