The view was amazing. The condo was clean and pretty. Location was amazing.
The view is fabulous, but we would suggest a few updates. The beds are lumpy (we felt springs). In the hall bathroom the faucets are too close to the backsplash and the wall paper is peeling. It would have been nice to have salt and pepper in the kitchen. The dining chairs are worn and look dirty. Perhaps more comfortable deck furniture? It was hard to find the office, but once there the staff was friendly and helpful.

The Sand and Sea is a wonderful complex in Seaside, Oregon.
We reserved an ocean view room and was very pleased with the accommodations.
Thank you for staying with us! We are so glad you had a great time! We take guest feedback seriously. We will be sure to follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon!
Plenty of room for a 5 people. Wonderful view of the ocean from a full wall of windows. Right on the beach. As other reviewers have noted the interior has not been updated in quite some time. Some improvements here and this would be a 5 star rating. If this doesn't bother you then you can't beat the price!
Hi Kurt, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will be sure to pass your comments along to our local manager who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We look forward to hosting you again!
The view of this condo is fantastic and it is only a couple of blocks from Broadway Street so it is convenient to many shops and restaurants.
The view was awesome. The condo was very clean. Kitchen was adequately equipped and what was missing Candice got for us immediately. Bathrooms are dated but clean. Our only issue was the TV in the master bedroom was not hooked up to cable so not usable but Candice gave us a $50 credit so no complaints. We would definitely stay in the condo again. The front desk was helpful and pleasant and check in & out were easy.
The view is beautiful and the condo is very comfortable and we really enjoyed having the fireplace!
Beautiful Ocean View right from your family room & balcony. This older resort which used to be a hotel has some nice amentities like gas fireplace, flat screen TV's, full kitchen, large bedroom & bathrooms. Very clean but needs new appliances & other updates.
The view is magnificent but that was all. This apartment needs serious upgrading, it needs painting, the furniture is shabby and and I would not recommend it at all until the owner has done something about it. Unfortunately the photographs do not give a true reflection of what it is really like.
Hi Shirley, thank you for your review. We apologize if the home wasn't to your preference. We will give your feedback about the furniture and upkeep to the local staff for further review. We hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future.
Overall we enjoyed our stay here as the view was fantastic. However we were very concerned when we first checked in and our 3 year old son found prescription medication laying on the floor of the 2nd bedroom and a spray can of window cleaner tucked behind a couch cushion. With the claim of “extra cleaning precautions” due to COVID, it was alarming to see these things, not to mention dangerous. The interior is also very dated with stained carpet in every room, peeling wallpaper everywhere, and kitchen cabinetry that had the finish worn off and was sticky to the touch.
We appreciate your feedback following your stay, Wes. While we are glad you enjoyed the location and views of this home, we are so sorry to hear about the cleanliness deficiencies found. Thank you for bringing this to our attention so our local manager can follow up with the housekeepers to ensure they are paying close attention to detail and following our standards. We hope we can host you again!
We loved the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the ocean. Loved the fireplace. The bed and living room chairs were comfy. The only reason we didn’t rate this place 5 stars was that the ice maker and dishwasher weren’t working. The dishwasher has a permanent “out of order” sticker on it. Overall the stay was very nice and we would love to return in the future.
We loved watching the ocean from the balcony. Dining on the Balcony and enjoying the roar of the ocean
Although the place isn't updated, it was perfect for our family. The view was amazing and the space was big enough to entertain our friends and family that were just in town for the day. The staff was wonderful and helpful and proximity to the beach and promenade was perfect. Our only complaint was that the AC didn't seem to work and we were bummed the pool was closed, but the amenities more than made up for it.
Thank you for your review, Emily. We are glad you enjoyed this home and we appreciate you bringing these issues to our attention. We will work with our local team to ensure these items are corrected for future guests, and we hope to host you again in the near future!
LOVED IT!!! Hope we get to go back some day. The only thing we would change is that we would stay longer : )
Sailors Retreat is located on the 4th floor and has a wonderful view up and down the coast. On our last day of vacation, 4 elk appeared in front of our condo. I quickly snapped a picture!
Fantastic condo with perfect views right on the ocean - the decor in the bathrooms is dated (old wallpaper), the kitchen stove is old but functional, but the condo is clean, good dishes, the couches are new/comfortable and the location is superb. In my view, a great place to stay
One of our best vacations yet in Seaside. The room was accommodating for the most part and the view was spectacular. The room is a little out of date, and we struggled using the Nest system, but honestly, I wasn’t going there for the decor. Thanks for contributing to the good memories.
The first thing you see as you walk through the door is a gorgeous view! Breathtaking. I also liked the full kitchen. Very nice.
As soon as I opened the door I was smacked in the face with an incredible ocean view. The place is clean and well cared for having everything you need. The view is all yours and you forget there are any other people around as you stare out at the surf. All you are aware of the is completely enveloping view of the ocean. Great place to breathe.
We enjoyed our stay and were happy with the location. The condo is dated but it served its purpose and we knew that going in. We were happy to have extra bedding that was provided and the staff were all very friendly even came up to the room to help with the TV.
This apartment is great, awesome view with whole west side glass, comfortable bed, 2 bathrooms. However, it is quaintly shabby, plaster cracked, ill fitting doors, worn paint and tattered curtains. I discovered the floors were filthy when I wiped up a spill with the white bath mat, this was the only thing that really skeeved my wife. The bathroom vents don't seem to work and the only stair going all the way down w/o setting off an alarm was way over on the east end. Nevertheless, the room was quiet, warm and comfortable and we found all the cooking utensils that we needed. I would rent it again, the price was good but I'd ask that someone give the counters, floors and walls a white glove test before my arrival.
Thank you for your review, Gerald. The owner will be doing updates beginning in February, and housekeeping has been retrained using your comments. We do hope you will come back to enjoy the home after the work is completed.
While this unit needs a lot of maintenance, it is still the best view of the ocean. It is clean and has all you need. Howe6if it were mine I'd update unit 400 but I'll stay again.
While this unit is tired with dated furniture, if you want a luxurious view and easy beach access, this is fabulous. Stayed two years in a row, and hope to return next year.
Thank you for staying with us, Barbara. We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback and we look forward to hosting you again!
Amazing view. Convenient for walking to restaurants. Comfortable living room. Everything you need for a Few days break. Recommend!
Clean, updated and comfortable!
The view in this unit is perfect and beautiful. The accommodations are worn out and in need of updating. The beds are comfortable and the shower very nice. The staff at the Sea and Sand were wonderful.
Being able to walk everywhere, ocean front, and an indoor pool, too! Great place to take the grandkids. This unit is dated and well used but a great beach spot.
The view was fantastic!! Location was terrific! Beds were comfortable. Nice TV in living room for watching Portland Trailblazers game!!!
Loved the spaciousness, very comfortable beds, view and how close it is to everything. The unit could use a new door and some bathroom decor spiffing up. I'm already planning on a repeat stay.
I loved the stunning views from our window.
Great view. Clean. Loved it.
Sailor's Retreat shows its age in some minor ways, but the office staff and room cleaning people make up for anything with their helpfulness and caring. My wife accidently left a necklace in the room that had our wedding anniversary stamped on it. We called the office and they went out of their way to locate it with the help of the cleaning people who had turned it in. We will stay in Sand and Sea Condominiums if for no other reasons than these great people.
We loved the amazing view and the central location.
Our stay with Sand and Sea was a happy one, the staff and general facility were great! However our unit 400 was very dated, the view is incredibly beautiful, but the apartment desperately needs a redo.
My friends and I loved the view, there was lots to see wonderful kites. People walking with their families and dogs on the Promenade. All the quaint shops in walking distance ( we resemble the "Golden Girls") It was doable for us. The staff was so helpful and courteous, condo was clean with all we needed to make some memorable meals. Some updating is due, but all and all I would come back. Judith
This is my 2nd time in this house and 6th trip to seaside. As always amazing condo with great views.... will be back soon
Unit 400 has many problems that you can’t see until you get there. Locks that don’t work on front doors, filthy carpets, dirt on laundry room floor. Microwave doesn’t work, broken slats in blinds, this is basic stuff that should be repaired. Unit hasn’t had any updating but even some paint would help. Terrible condition
Pool and location are only positives. Would never return as can’t tell what units are similar or have been maintained.
We appreciate the guests feedback. Our Local Manager is currently working with the owner to address the updated needed in the unit. Local staff has removed the deadbolt to avoid further door issues. There is a safety latch on the inside that can be used for added security. The carpets are scheduled to be cleaned this Fall and a new microwaved has since been purchased.
Love the location, the deck, the view.
Condo was nice and spacious but most of all the view was incredible.
great location and layout; could use some spiffing up
Great location and what a view! Unit could definitely use some updating but was clean and everything seemed to be in working order.
The staff was super and the location was steps from the beach. We were only able to use the indoor pool for a couple of days due to a renovation, but it was great. The suite was a little dated, but very clean and well stocked with what we needed.
A little dated & a few minor issues but the view is fabulous!! Nice pool & great location!
This one is nice but could use some updating in kitchen and baths. Beds were comfortable
Its a great location and a great town to visit but expect a 2 star motel or less. do your home work on rates before you decide
There's nothing better thanksgiving at the beach ...Turkey the view of the ocean and
Our family. ..Good times at the beach..:)
clean, with an excellent view. first time in this unit, and 4th time in sea and sand. have already booked for march 2018!!
Great location and view, but could use a little upkeep.
Excellent location, great building, great view and great staff!!
Great place. Paint to get rid of boring white. Enjoyed our stay!
although the condo was very clean with great showers and comfortable beds, the over all look of the condo was shabby .
I couldn't believe the shape of this once-hotel, now-turned-into a condo. It did have a great view, and the work that had been done to create an open room with an ocean view was good. Everything else looked like it was left alone from the time it was still two hotel rooms in the 70s. I was really surprised the white trim had not been at least touched up where time and people had worn down the paint layers to bare wood. Everything was so scuffed and worn and just old looking. The living room furniture looked new and was nice, but the tabletop and everything else was worn, outdated and not clean. Very disappointing!
It had great view of the ocean. The place right on beach and it was clean.
Perfect location in town. Right on the beach, and 1-2 blocks from the main street. Everything is in walking distance.
Great location and close to all the action.
Great location on the beach and within walking distance to the town. The promenade was a real bonus to be able to get lots of walking in. The pool is very small though and doesn't open until 10:00AM. There are 2 restaurants on both sides just a few buildings down. Shiloh had a great happy hour and reasonable priced food and was very good. Maggie's was a little over priced and arrived 10 minutes before happy hour was over, but wouldn't let us order anything from happy hour menu, or get happy hour drink prices.
Room 400 was clean and the view is second to none. The couches are a bit worn and you sink when you sit on them making it difficult to get up.
The beds are very comfortable and they provided more than enough pillows and blankets.
The property is kept clean and the staff are extremely polite and go out of their way to assist you.
This is my new santuary and I look forward to staying again.
This was our first time staying here and we loved the location. You're definitely there for the beautiful view. Some finishes in the unit were a bit dated, but it pretty much had everything we needed for our stay. It was nice to have a two-bedroom that didn't include twin beds, as there were no children traveling with us. Perfect location to walk along the Prom or Broadway. Will definitely consider staying here again.
Being oceanfront, the view is awesome! The unit is spacious with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The beds are comfy which isn't always the case. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. Thank you!
Although we only were two, this condo could sleep many more! Great location and view. I'll be back!
Central location, spectacular views, easy beach access and a cozy fireplace were highlights of Unit 400. The kids also loved swimming in the shared pool. The front office staff were helpful and we didn't have to worry about a thing. We'd stay there again in the future.
Great ocean front view and very convience location to go to downtown with walking distance.
#400 needs a lot of upgrading. Needs paint and the bathrooms and kitchen need work. However, for the price, it was great. Probably the best view of the Pacific Ocean, beach and prom in Seaside. Outstanding.
We came with another couple and this condo was perfect. The kitchen is large and well-equipped, so if you want to cook a big meal like we did you are in for a treat. The furnishings were comfortable and the mattresses was as well. But it's the patio that sells this place. It is so fun to sit out there and watch everything going on below you. Total relaxation. We will definitely be coming back. Great condo and a great deal for the price.
Overall it is a beautiful place to stay.
Our stay here was absolutely amazing, reservations were no hassle and checking in was a breeze. The room was spotless and amazing when we got there, the view was also to die for. Overall we were extremely happy with our stay.
No salt and pepper available in the kitchen. No safety mats in the shower or tub. Had malfunctioning elevator and had to use an unlit stairwell which was under construction covered in sticky plastic, no flashlights or other safety concerns addressed. Great view of the ocean and very easy walk into town.
Great place , a lot to do in town.
We have stayed here several times in the beachfront units. We particularly like these units because they have an entire wall of windows. With our spotting scope and binoculars we enjoyed seeing sights (including a baby seal on the beach) we would have missed from other locations. Most of the units are nicely furnished, however the last unit we stayed in was very dated and had dirty, paint worn cabinets.
Vacasa is a nice company to work with and we have enjoyed staying in their homes/condos on almost every occasion. Winter time rates are very good and the reservation process and check-in/out is very well organized.
Beautiful views from the apartment and very nice staff. A little confusing to find the check-in place with the remodeling work currently done on the building but overall great experience.
Nice location and a good value. Would love to see some updating (wallpaper) and would recommend the owner replace or repair the sofa
Enjoyed our stay place was dated but price was right clean and great view
The view is like no other! The price is good too
This condominium has a fantastic location and magnificent view. It was a wonderful place for our annual family weekend vacation...my wife and I accompanied by my brother and sister who are both retired My best advice is get there early enough so you do not get stuck sleeping on the rollaway bed or the pullout sofa since both are incredible "saggers."
Note there was cons but it still was a great place to stay. Just needs updates and a new couch!
This property was just as advertised. The view is amazing and bedroom/bath accommodating. The sofa is not comfortable but the 2 oversized chairs are. All the items needed in kitchen to make a meal or Two.
one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. Beautiful view of the ocean and a close walk to town and to the ocean.
This is a wonderful condo in an incredible location. As many others have said the view is indescribable. It does show its age and some usage but it was super clean. I wish the fireplace had worked as it was absolutely pouring outside ! That being said, everything you need is there, the bed was amazingly comfy. Add a cup of coffee and that view, what more could you ask for? If you ever want to sell let me know.... Oh, the people that helped me book this condo at Vacasa were awesome! super helpful Thank you so much !
We had a fun experience in a conveniently located apartment by the sea. Lovely walks on the beach right out our front door!
Beautiful scenery, excellent location.
Owner inattention to obvious maintenance needs is a deal beaker.
We are disappointed to see that this guest was displeased with our care of the unit. The Property Manager is aware that the fireplace is not working and will look into options for repairs.
This unit has several things that either didn't work, like the fireplace, or drapes that you couldn't close across big window or chipped furniture, but gorgeous view of ocean and sunsets!
We are pleased to say that the fireplace is now fixed and working (as of the end of December 2016), and the drapes have been repaired. Thank you!
Sand and Sea is a perfect location for the August Beach volleyball tournament. Close to the courts and to town. Can park once and never drive again until you leave. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Parts of the facility are showing their age but overall the place is well maintained and clean. Would highly recommend this location.
We chose this property for the view and location and were not disappointed. We were able to walk to most places in town and others were just a few minutes drive. The condo had all of the conveniences of home so we had a great family weekend.
Unit is spacious, has a nice layout, and excellent views of the beach. Furnishings and bedding are dated.
We had a wonderful time in this condo. There are breathe taking views to the ocean and the Seaside promenade. We will be back sometime and bring our children too.
This unit was a wonderful place to just rest and relax. Close to town, good food, and lots of family friendly activities.
We had such a fun time in Seaside. Sturgeon fishing one day was the reason we went but the bonfires on the beach each evening were fun, romantic and will be a great family memory forever.
The view and location and amazing and the staff is friendly. However, the condo is very run down, the hideaway bed unusable, and pots, pans and knives in very poor condition.
We are sorry to see that there were some disappointments with this stay. The Property Manager and owner are working together on improvements.
This is my 3rd visit to Seaside, and this stay was far the best one. I invited my best friend and her husband from Nebraska, they were memorized with the amazing view of the ocean as they walked into the condo, and the view off the balcony. We enjoyed it so much we ended up staying an extra night.
We had the most marvelous time. The panoramic ocean view was breathtaking; kitchen and large dining room table accommodated the six of us. Two bedrooms and bathrooms--covered, enclosed outside patio to hear the ocean roar; gas fireplace, temperature of swimming pool was warm--grandkids had a blast,
We just had to step outside to the beach. Sand castles, razor clam digging, kite flying, bike riding on the promenade--too much fun.
We loved it.
We were literally about a block form the main strip where all the shops were, it was really nice, the aquarium and arcade, and carousel mall are all right there as well. Friendly staff. Clean condo, amazing view, everything we needed. There was even a singing candy man on the street. So cute.
We had a wonderful time and the weather was perfect. My mother who is 92 sat on the patio and watched all the beach activities. The view is outstanding. Wonderful place to stay.
We were very pleased with our location; the beds were very comfortable; the apartment was very clean.
Would stay again in a heartbeat
Beautiful views and very nicely upgraded facilities and decor.
This is a where you want to stay if you really want to be at the beach. Our condo was vey nicely decorated with a sea side theme throughout. It was conveniently located just 2 blocks from the promenade...an easy walking distance to town. There is no way to explain the beauty of the expansive, gorgeous view. Be sure and stay here if you want to experience a full beach visit,
We love being able to get away with our 4 daughters, they need it and we love it. We love being so close to Cannon Beach, we go there every year for lunch and a little shopping. We will be back again next year.
Some condos are nice, others are old and worn. Read the reviews carefully so you get what you're expecting. Awesome views, awesome staff.
We took our mom to the ocean for her 98th birthday, and she loved the view out the windows, and we also were able to rent a sand wheelchair to take her right down by the water. That was a memory none of us will forget!!
We have been staying at Sand & Sea for over 7 seas. We stay for one week during the month of Sept. or Oct. The staff at Sand & Sea are always helpful, cheerful and on top of things. We miss Mary but everyone who works there is awesome. The location couldn't be better. Only 3 buildings from the Broadway turn-around and shopping/restaurants/bars/kids entertainment.
It was a great experience!
The convo was beautiful and located perfectly near down center and the beach. It provided all the amenities we need to have a wonderful time and was very clean. We recommend it and will stay there next time
