We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Can't beat the view and the easy access to the beach. The house was clean and comfortable and we loved that there were puzzles and games, plenty of towels in the bathroom, hangers in the closets, and two recliner chairs in the living room. We would definitely stay here again! Our only caution is that the beds are rather hard.
Leonore P. Oct 2022
Loved we had a wonderful ocean view, constant sound of the waves and miles to walk.
Kaylie N. Oct 2022
Always clean and cozy. Perfect view and beach access. Love that it’s dog friendly :) Just wish checkout time was a more reasonable 11 am instead of 10.
Ren L. Sep 2022
Stunning landscapes, expansive views, convenient locations, and complete facilities made our vacation perfect.
Barbara K. Aug 2022
Comfortable home, amazing view!

The ocean as the front of house
Katrina I. Aug 2022
House is simple but clean and comfortable. The real plus here is its location. Lots of windows right on the ocean's edge; a fabulous view. Easy access to the beach and Old Town.
BETH C. Jul 2022
Clean and gorgeous home. The view is stunning and beach access super close. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and hope to come again.
bruce b. Jun 2022
the view's great. close enough to the beach, very interesting beach, lots of rock formations to explore with caves and tidepools. they do have a steep walk back up the beach access trail bout 100 yards we had no problem. it is and older home but well maintained by owner. A deck would be nice addition.
Barbara L. Jun 2022
This cottage is in a fantastic neighborhood- steps to a beach. It’s private, quiet and incredibly dog friendly. You can’t go wrong staying here.
Kaylie N. Apr 2022
This is our favorite place to stay in Bandon. We love the view, how comfortable and pet friendly it is. However, we were annoyed by Vacasa changing the checkout time to 10 instead of 11. When checkin is at 4, and checkout is 11, you’re barely getting to stay a few hours. Doesn’t make it worth it to come for an overnight, which we always used to do.
Roxanne H. Mar 2022
The Ocean Vista location is ideal for any weather or time of the year as it has the most amazing views and just a few steps away from the sand. The house is perfect and has all that you need to relax and enjoy!!
Holly R. Mar 2022
We only had 2 nights to stay but it was clean, warm, relaxing. Some of my family enjoyed the really firm beds and I slept well in the soft recliner. My kids are asking if we can come back. I would definitely stay again.
Deborah R. Feb 2022
We love Bandon, and this is the best place we've found. Love the view and easy access to the beach. If the weather is bad or the tide is too high you have huge windows and comfortable chairs to watch the waves and sunset. The cottage is well appointed for staying in (especially good for Covid times). Internet is fast and reliable.
For us, the only negative (this will be a huge positive for many) is that it is dog friendly. We are not pet owners and have allergies. As clean as the house was, we still found dog hair stuck to our clothes.
One other trivial thing, if you're not a fan of non-stick cookware, bring your favorite skillet.
Dani A. Jan 2022
The large picture windows give a great view. So close to the FaceRock . It is an easy walk down to the beach and exploring the tide pools. The colors of the orange and purple starfish never gets old. Go into downtown and go the The ChowderHouse. Some of the best fish&chips on the Oregon Coast.
Doyle B. Oct 2021
The house has fantastic views over one of the very pretty beaches in southern Oregon. Even better, long beach walks are possible going in both directions. The house is a simple cottage with some limitations (e.g. limited counter space, very basic decoration, hard beds) but well worth it for the oceanfront locstion.
Manager response:
Doyle, thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the wonderful view. We appreciate your feedback as we are always looking for ways to improve and hope to host you again soon.
Katie A. Sep 2021
The view is AMAZING. Its a cute little house, with easy access to Bandon. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Only 2 cons (in my opinion). The beds are rock hard and the shower.
Manager response:
Thank you for providing your valuable feedback, Katie. We are happy to hear that you had a great vacation and loved the location of the home. We are sorry for any issues you encountered during your stay. Please know that Local staff are always available to assist if there are any issues in the home. We would have loved the opportunity to fix the shower for you if possible. We hope to have a chance to host you next time. Thank you.
Laura L. Aug 2021
Just perfect for relaxing, watching the ocean and going to the beach. Close to town for the freshest seafood you can find. Loved every minute!
Marain O. Jul 2021
the ocean is amazing. If you want to be on the beach this is it.
Theresa F. Jul 2021
As much as we loved the view this home needs some work. It really needs a deep clean. Window sills nasty, pretty dirty all around and horrible, scratched up aluminum cookware. It needs an outside patio. Had I planned earlier we could have gotten a much nicer place for the money we spent.
Manager response:
Theresa, we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback, and we are sorry for the items that were amiss during your visit. We will be working with your comments to ensure that any areas of concern are appropriately addressed. We hope to have another opportunity to host you. Thank you for staying with us!
Robert M. Jun 2021
Sure the property is a little dated, but it is ideally located with the best view possible. The property is impeccably maintained, fully appointed and a wonderful experience all around. We could not have asked for more.
Eadie C. Jun 2021
We enjoyed our stay and the cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. The view was spectacular! We did not even turn on the TV as we had a beautiful view to watch! The only thing would be the beds were pretty hard, not very comfortable. But other than that everything was wonderful!
Janet L. May 2021
A friend of mine has been staying at Ocean Vista Cottage for years and has always talked about how much she loves it. Now I know why. What a sweet, perfect little house! The beach access is fantastic and the views out the front windows are awesome every waking moment.
Kaylie N. Apr 2021
We absolutely love this little house. It’s our favorite place to stay in Bandon. Cozy, cute, and you can’t beat the view!
Melissa B. Apr 2021
Absolutely great location. We loved watching the sunset every evening and the walk down to the beach was easy! We enjoyed having fires in the fireplace. The bedrooms were a little chilly, and I do think there should be a few extra blankets in each room. Other than that, we hope to come back. We loved this location.
David C. Mar 2021
Have stayed in a dozen places in Bandon over 20 years, including twice before at the Ocean Vista Studio. This time, "splurged" for the larger Cottage. Beach access and views can't be beat!
Katherine V. Feb 2021
Nice view and easy beach access.
Jean M. Jan 2021
The view from the living room is incredible. We loved the side by side Laz-y Boys. The kitchen was stocked, except for any food stuff, so had to buy salt and pepper, etc. The beds were fine, but it would benefit from new pillows. I would stay again.
Shelley B. Jan 2021
This is an older home, but the furnishings are sufficient for our stays. It allows pets, which is wonderful and the walk to the beach is an easy one. Can't beat the location and view!
There is quite a bit of natural prickly shrub starting to come up in the yard, so be careful if you have a dog which areas you take them outside. In front of the house is bad and some of the side yard as well, but the small. low fence area is ok.
Shelley B. Oct 2020
The view from this home was breathtaking! It had all the amenities that we needed and the easy location to walk to the beach was perfect. We'll definitely stay here again in the future.
Anna T. Oct 2020
The cottage was great as well as the beach! Caves to explore and the moonlight hitting the water on a crisp clear night was amazing! The only issues I had were not all the outlets have been updated, the grass past the small fenced yard is nothing but thorns-hurt my feet, and the company is hard to get ahold of. Overall, the cottage worked for me because I was only there in the morning and evening and crabbing during the day. I would stay here again now that I know what I know.
Jasmine P. Aug 2020
Highly recommend. Very simple and original but adorable. Everything was clean and as advertised. Easy beach access. Had some trouble with the tv remote but the local Vacasa team was super responsive.
Lorrie W. Aug 2020
The cottage has beautiful views and easy access to the ocean.
Mike F. Aug 2020
Amazing view from house. Even better than expected. Quick access to beach. Close to town. Only suggestion is to add a small deck out the back and a dishwasher.
Molly M. Jul 2020
We had a great stay at this little house. The view is truly wonderful. We enjoyed sunsets from the dinner table and watching horseback riders go by on the beach. Beach access is just two houses down and it and the house were fairly handicapped accessible. Ignore the main photo on the listing showing the huge staircase to the beach, it’s taken from a view point 1/2 mile down the road.

The house had a good small kitchen which was important for us since we didn’t want to dine out much with the virus. I was able to make steamed mussels, pasta, pan seared fish, boiled veggies, coffee, toast, bacon, eggs, and baked foods. There were lots of wine glasses, bottle openers, plates, bowls, cutlery, coffee cups, sharp knives, cutting boards, Tupperware, baking dishes, etc. The only things a little lacking were regular glasses, lids to the pots, a large soup/pasta pot, and a wood spoon (IMO), but we made due. Some of the dishes looked like they hadn’t been used in a while, but nothing a wash couldn’t handle. They supplied a new sponge and small amount of dish soap.

The house was clean and we saw the studio next door being well cleaned.

Someone in a prior review said the studio next door was a privacy problem and you could see into it from windows, but we didn’t find this an issue. There are lots of windows though and houses close together so people can see into the main living area.

There were a selection of pillows and bedding. With the futon couch you could sleep up to 6, but I think the house size is better suited to 4.

There were lots of bathroom towels, but bring beach towels. The check in email said there was shampoo, conditioner, and soap but it was just one set of hotel size, so bring more for longer stays. There was plenty of liquid hand soap.

We brought our dog and there was food and water bowls supplied.

There were some adult puzzles and books but bring little kids some toys.
Sarah R. Jul 2020
What a wonderful view and cozy home. We really enjoyed everything about our stay in this home - meals with a view, reading in the garden, doing puzzles in the sitting room. And just a short walk down to the beach and short cycle into town. We loved our time relaxing and recharging here. Thanks for letting us stay!
Susan S. Jul 2020
A beautiful spot with a lovely balance of privacy up on the bluff and very quick beach access - the kitchen was especially well stocked with gear for cooking up meals at home so that eating out was def an opetion and not a necessity. We especially enjoyed the panoramic view from the house, which is breathtaking.
Tim C. Jun 2020
The view of the ocean and beach was awesome.
Roxanne H. Jun 2020
The view!!
Maggie J. May 2020
Really lovely house with a beautiful view. Simple and perfect for a small family. Close to the beach (easy short walk) and has everything else you might need if stuck inside during bad weather. Fireplace was functional and fun to have. Would definitely look to stay there again.
Cesar A. Mar 2020
The house has most of what you'll ever need, even a fireplace.
Debra B. Oct 2019
I’ve been renting this home for over 20 years and it’s great!
Linda A. Oct 2019
The view and comfort of this home.
Lisa C. Sep 2019
Nice little cottage with amazing views!
Pat S. Sep 2019
We love the views from this cottage and it's accessibility to the beach. She spend a lot of time on the beach. It's basic and adequate.
Monique W. Aug 2019
The view pics don't do the actual view justice. The house was clean and had everything we needed for cooking meals, ect. Would definitely recommend and will likely return.
Linda A. Jul 2019
This is a comfortable and well situated home. We love coming here!
Crystal C. Jun 2019
Great property! It is older but very well taken care of. Had everything we needed. Laundry was a plus! Recommended for the view/price comparison. Easy beach access.
Gena B. Jun 2019
Great three days staying at Ocean Vista!! The view is incredible and we thoroughly enjoyed walking the beach!! Hope to come back to Ocean Vista someday, Sincerely, Gena and Paul Buschmann
Holly M. May 2019
The cottage is perfectly set up for a fantastic stay at the coast! Wonderful experience, fabulous views and close to everything you need.
