I rented this for my husband’s 40th birthday. We had plenty of room so that everyone had privacy. It was great being so close to the beach. We walked into town and it was an easy twenty five minute walk along a path by the road. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals for a crowd. The kids liked having their own bunk room. We played lots of board games I front of the windows that had a great view of the ocean. I would rent this again for a group.

Comfortable home, with excellent beach access. Lots of room for moderate sized group, with baby seat, Pak n Play, hot tub and entertainment. This home met all our needs and gave us a relaxing place to regroup while exploring the many trails and beaches near by. Would be great in winter with it’s wood stove. There is foot traffic as it sits on the end of street at beach access, but we were never disturbed. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Perfect location for family gathering at the beach. Comfortable, clean, well equipped, with a great view! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Courtney B. Feb 2022
Unbeatable location as the house sits directly across from the beach entrance. While the house wasn`t in the best shape and things could have been cleaner, we were very thankful that they allow dogs. The upstairs living and dining area is spacious and great for groups. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Marijke D. Feb 2022
Loved our stay here. The kitchen is very well-equipped for a rental property and we enjoyed the beautiful view and short walk to the beach. Would be glad to stay here again! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Alex S. Jan 2022
We had a great time, loved the location, loved the big windows. The lounging areas were more comfortable than any other vacation rental we`ve stayed at. The kitchen was stocked with everything you need for basic cooking. There are like 5 blenders so you could really make some blending happen.

We would stay here again! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Carol R. Jan 2022
We had a wonderful time with our family at the Sitka House. There was more than enough room for us (6 adults and 2 children). The boys loved their bunkbed room. The huge dining room table was a plus for Christmas dinner and lots of board games!
The location was great. I just wish for an earlier check-in time. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Paula S. Nov 2021
Great place for our family of 10+dog to spend Thanksgiving weekend. Access to beach easy and the large amount of dishes and seating at the dining table were nice. The 4 kids loved the bunk room. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Cherise B. Oct 2021
The Sitka house is just across from the beach and has awesome
ocean front views. The path to the beach is just across from the house. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked (including a griddle and blenders), the house was spacious, and everything functioned well. The deck is gated which was wonderful for giving pets additional space to play. The hot tub was clean and everything worked well. The house has beach towels, beach gear, a pack-N-play, and kid toys/puzzles. Our kids loved the bunk bed room. Overall it was a perfect house for 4 families to share and we had an amazing time at the beach. The check-in time was 5 pm, which seems really late, especially with a 10 am check-out time. However, Sunset was very responsive and did provide us a late check-out which was great. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Kara B. Sep 2021
This is an amazing location just steps to the path to Manzanita`s beautiful sandy beach. It`s also about a mile stroll to the main street in town and close to the state park. The street is quiet, dead end, so felt very safe for kids and pets. The home itself was spacious and easily accommodated our family. The bathrooms in the house are dated to the point they`re starting to feel a little dingy. The space and great location of the house outweighs the not-so-great bathrooms. We would stay again! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We were lucky to be able to have a safe gathering of my amazing caregiving family and friends from my cancer treatment. This house provided the perfect spaces to be together and enjoy the amazing beach. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
David H. Oct 2020
Big house with a nice open upstairs layout, with a little ocean, and lots of neahkanie head views. Path into the dunes right across the quiet street.
Interior feels like an early-90s reno that is aging, but otherwise kept in good shape. Internet was good, and we could work at the table with light and views, and take the dog to the beach for breaks!

Covid-safety process seemed sensible, and considerate to the locals.

We had our entire family - 12 - stay here for a few days, and it was perfect! Very close to the beach and the house was set up very nicely and great views of the ocean. Would definitely stay here again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Jennifer L. Feb 2020
Our stay at the Sitka house was wonderful! The house has plenty of room to spread out, and we really appreciated the comfy living room and fireplace. There were also tons of puzzles, some games and pillows/blankets to make lounging extra easy. The ocean views from the house made us want to visit again soon. Note: the bunk room is perfect for kiddos (but a little small for adults). Sunset Vacation Rentals staff were also very helpful when we couldn`t get in to the hot tub, and they were able to resolve the issue very quickly. Thanks so much and can`t wait to visit again! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Lindsey B. Dec 2018
We loved the house, especially the large table so all 10 of us could we lay games and eat together. The TV was great for holiday movie watching. The view of the ocean was great and being so close to the beach was great for our pup and the older members of our group. Some feedback: We would add that some paint in the bedrooms needs improvement. A light for the porch and replacement of our bulbs would be great. The grill was super greasy and dirty. There were not enough mugs for everyone in the morning to drink tea and coffee. The frying pans are pretty roughed up as well. That said, we would definitely stay there again! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Wow! What a beautiful place to stay. We had a great time. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Mani B. Aug 2018
Our family of 10 booked the Sitka house for 5 nights in August. We did not have a lot of choice because of the time of year, number of bedrooms, and needing a pet friendly house. We did like the location and access to the beach. We were disappointed in the condition of the home. Previous reviews said the house was clean but that was not our experience. The bathrooms were mildewed and the wedding whole downstairs smelled moldy. The carpet and couch had many stains. We were also very uncomfortable in the beds. All of the mattresses need to be updated. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Helen G. Aug 2018
Our family, eight adults and three children, stayed in the Sitka House for five days. Everything worked out very well. Accommodations were great for us. The hot tub was welcome, as the weather was cool. The distance to the beach was not a problem for us, but it could be if anyone has orthopedic issues as you have to climb up a sand hill, and the sand was deep! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Tia D. Aug 2018
The location was great. The beds were horrible, beer can under the bed, ants in one of the bedrooms, light bulbs out throughout the rental. Needs a lot of TLC before we would stay here again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Mary T. Aug 2018
I was excited to rent the Sitka House given it`s close proximity to the beach, but the condition of the house left a lot to be desired. The walls need a coat of paint, the window treatments were dirty, the kitchen table has definitely seen better days. In addition, the house has very little air flow as most of the windows do not open and many of the ones that do don`t have screens. Also, beware that the grass in front of the property contains lots of burrs, which can get stuck in dog paws. On the upside, the kitchen did have a lot of equipment (could not find a box grater, though and most (but not all) of the beds were pretty comfortable. In addition, the top deck is enclosed, which was great for our dog. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Yvette V. Aug 2018
Our children and grandchildren got together for our 50th anniversary. The accommodations were great, perfect location close to the beach and to town. Had a wonderful time. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Donna B. Jul 2018
Our family of 11 stayed here in July and had a great time. Plenty of room for all, kitchen very well stocked, long table to sit everybody, and wonderful deck with chairs. And being a very short walk to the beach was an added bonus. Altho this is an older property and needs some touch up painting, it was very clean and the living room furniture plentiful and comfortable. The kitchen also had great storage for foods that we brought which is not always the case in beach houses. Really like this house! We did arrive to pick up keys 15 minutes early and had to wait until exactly 4pm to get them!? That seemed pretty unnecessary...our son/family were already at the house and there were no cleaners in sight so can`t imagine why we had to cool our heels for a quarter hour at the rental place?? This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Robert D. Jul 2018
Big challenges to accommodate 8 adults, 4 grandkids, and ultimately 3 dogs!
This house did all of that quite nicely. Proximity to beach was great, house was clean and comfortable.View was spectacular. We`ll be back! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Margot H. Jul 2018
The house provided for a great experience for my family and friends. The location is great. Close to town, but not too close, and situated nicely on a cul de sac so not much street traffic. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We had a great weekend in Manzanita This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Sarah M. Jun 2018
Easy walk over the dunes to the beach and a large open living space made this the perfect get away for a large group. Everyone had enough space and the bedrooms were large and separate enough we didn`t feel piled on top of each other, but could all hang out comfortably when we wanted to. The back deck made a nice space to hang out away from the ocean breeze. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Michelle W. Mar 2018
The house is in a great location for beach access. It has a wonderful view for not being ocean front. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We were gathered for a retreat weekend, and Sitka House was a very comfortable and charming place to be with friends and enjoy the gorgeous coast at Manzanita. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Marie-france M. Sep 2017
the house was well maintained and clean. The hot tub was a plus. The cover was in bad shape and let the heat escape.
On a scale of 0 to 10, I will give it a 9. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Michelle O. Aug 2017
We had a great experience here. The house was clean, the hottub was clean. The layout was great for our large group. Can`t really complain about anything other than it was further from the small town than we would have liked. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
David C. Jul 2017
House was very clean and comfortable for our family of 10. View of the beach and about 1/2 block walk. We spend a lot of time walking, sitting, and playing on the beach. Had a few issues with faucets and TV remote, but hope they will be corrected soon. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Charity G. May 2017
We had a girls weekend for mother`s day and absolutely loved our stay at Sitka!The house had everything we needed and the view was amazing! We stay several times a year with Sunset and will never rent with any other Rental company. Sunset and Sitka are fabulous:) This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Margaret C. Aug 2016
My husband and I and our three adult children and their families( 13 people) spent a long week-end at Sitka house. We could not have been more satisfied.
The house is very roomy and comfortable--it is well furnished, well maintained and clean. The location is perfect for a variety of outdoor activities, as well as casual and fine dining. We had a fabulous time--I highly recommend Sitka House. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Charmagne K. Aug 2016
Good. Great location with an ocean view. Only complaint would be that second story windows were coated with salt spray that we couldn`t reach to wash off. Impacts the great ocean view. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Lena I. Jun 2016
We enjoyed our stay here. There was room for everyone! Loved the large dinning table with the view. It was clean and had everything we needed. Like many other reviews already mentioned- this house could use some TLC- few upgrades here and there would make a huge difference.
However, overall everyone left happy!!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Mvivienne P. May 2016
House was large enough to accommodate our group comfortably. Downstairs was a little dark and the window screen in one of the windows was broken, so we could not leave the window open which made the room a little stuffy. Overall, though, it provided us with the facilities we needed and we enjoyed our stay. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Hannah D. Jan 2016
This was a perfect place for our 10-person bookgroup with plenty of beds and room to hang out. The view is wonderful! Overall, the house is comfortable and well equipped, though tired. Hot tub didn`t work and is in a awkward location under the stairs that isn`t very appealing. Super location. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Kellee B. Sep 2015
I love the location of this home. I had rented it previously, about 8 years ago, and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, the home is in need of maintenance. With a little TLC this home could really shine again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Jeanie F. Sep 2015
The house is in a great location, just steps from the beach and a short walk into Manzanita. Although the house was clean and comfortable the house itself could use a little TLC. We loved having king size beds but were disappointed that we had to crawl up from the bottom end because of how they were positioned. One bathroom was a very nice size but the other two were quite small. Overall we had a fabulous time at the beach and were grateful to find a 5 bedroom, 3 bath home. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Evelyn T. Jul 2015
There were 11 of us in this house, and we found it a perfect place for our family reunion. We loved the fact it was so close to the beach, and all eleven of us walked from the house into Manzanita on the walkway, and then came back on the beach. We wished we could have stayed longer.

Margot H. Jul 2015
I arrived on Wednesday, in an attempt to have time to wander the beach, sit in the hot tub, and relax before my wedding, which was the following Saturday. The house was wonderful. The location was great. The rooms were sufficient for the guests that I had coming. My bridal party enjoyed the proximity to the beach and the size of the living area, along with the view of the ocean! It was truly a great experience. (My only suggestion would be to clean the cupboards in the kitchen, they felt sticky from the very beginning.) This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Molly H. Apr 2015
the house was great- it was close to the beach, easy room for 10, loved the big dining room table and the wonderful light from the windows. Weather was sunny until the day we left This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Chandra L. Apr 2015
This rental was amazing for our little ones who are two. There was plenty of space for them to run around and there wasn`t anything fragile or breakable within their reach. For our older kids the place was great because the beach was just a very short walk down the path. The view from the kitchen table was amazing and it was very nice to have the tub. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Tricia W. Mar 2015
The Sitka House worked well for our group of families. An outdoor shower would have been nice, to rinse the sand off before hopping in the hot tub. Thanks! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Cynthia C. Jan 2015
My extended family stayed at the Sitka House for a few days after Christmas. The house was clean and well-equipped. The location is quiet, and the view from the great room is just as pictured, which we appreciated during our winter stay. A walk on the beach is just steps away. Most important for us, each adult couple had their own room, with a queen sized bed.
A few things could use some attention. The hot water tank shut off. The management sent someone over immediately, and all he had to do was hit the reset button. After being shown, we were able to reset it ourselves, when it reoccurred. The top rack of the dishwasher is missing the plastic brackets which prevent it from being pulled out too far. Unfortunately, we didn`t notice that until we pulled it all the way out, fully loaded. The beds are adequate, but not top of the line.
On the plus side, the great room was perfect for family gatherings, meals, games, tv, etc. There are plenty of towels, sheets, plates, silverware, and so forth. Bring your own coffee mug, as there are dozens of cups, but only 3 or 4 mugs.
The hot tub was clean and roomy. It is set at 101, but heats up to 104 pretty quickly.
We love Manzanita, and enjoyed walking the beach, riding bikes, exploring the state park, hiking Neahkahnie Mt., and just relaxing in our home away from home. We felt very comfortable at the Stika House, and would stay there again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Great space and view, close to beach and EZ access. only bad part was that the smaller downstairs bathroom toilet didnt drain very well and on the last night it stoped and the one upstairs toilet overflowed.

Kathie C. Oct 2014
The best thing about Sitka House is it`s location and the wall to wall front windows that allow for a theatric view of the ocean. The house is large, roomy and easily accomodates four couples. The kitchen was well stocked and fundtioned well; the table was ample enough to sit ten adults and two children. This main living area was the best place to be.
We definitely enjoyed the proximity to the beach and ocean.
The bedrooms were smaller and less attractive than expected. The beds need to be replaced - uncomfortable mattrasses and one bed propped up with books!
The house has a general feel of neglect - this is no one`s home. Mould can be found along base boards and sink counter trim. There is no attempt to baffle sound between the two floors. If your bedroom was downstairs and you retired to bed early, it was difficult to sleep.
We felt that the cleanliness and working orderof equipment such as coffee grinders, BBQ, tea kettles should be checked on a regular basis.
If these issues are addressed, I would be able to recommend Sitka House to others. If not, my recommendation would come with reservations. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Ellie H. Sep 2014
Everyone in our group was pleased to stay at the Sitka House. We had been there several times before. The long table in the eating area, looking out on the ocean, is our favorite part of the house. I have 2 recommendations: the refrigerator needs more shelves and the north bedroom upstairs needs a rod in the closet to hang clothes. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Easy to locate, private, great access to beach good distance from town- needs a dust pan This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Kathleen H. Aug 2014
The Sitka House was exactly what we expected--a large house sleeping many people in a comfortable environment, close to the beach, with a hot tub, grill, deck and beautiful view. The house was clean, extremely well supplied with towels, sheets, and kitchen equipment. It was the best rental I have ever made for my large, multi-generational family. We were pleased with the location and the services of the town of Manzanita. I would love to return to this house and would recommend it highly to anyone interested in spacious accomodations.

Craig M. Aug 2014
From this house there is a nice view of the beach from the large living room and dining areas. The kitchen is very roomy and well equipped. Plenty of room for all and three baths is nice. The hot tub is great after a day in the surf (with a wet suit of course). This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Andrea W. Jul 2014
We really enjoyed our stay at the Sitka house! Lots of room for our extended family, never felt crowded. Great, large seating area. Very close walk to the beach. Had a great time, would defiantly stay here again. The only thing it was missing was seating area outside and no yard for kids to play.... But then again u can walk to beach.....

We have always had a great experience at this house. Have stayed at the Sitka for several year. It was clean, step from the beach. Always to leave the home the way we found it. Be there next Year! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Adele M. May 2014
Easy access to the beach and to a good walking path to the State park. The house was not as nice as I expected for the price, and the dishwasher was broken and the oven door would not close without a fight. Otherwise, a very nice stay, beautiful ocean view from the upstairs living room. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Excellent location away from the tourist traps of Cannon & Seaside. Great space for multiple couples &/or family. We will be back!

Raymond F. Mar 2014
12 of us had a weekend away and enjoyed our stay. There was plenty of room for everyone. the kitchen, dinning and living room were open and spacious. Other houses blocked much of the ocean view, but there is still a section of the ocean and bluff in view from the living room.
Overall we were pleased with the house and the location. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Barbara M. Jan 2014
We really enjoyed the nearness to the beach, as well as the view. House was comfortable, but the mattresses really need to be updated, as well as linens. Great covered patio too, but more outdoor furniture would help us enjoy it more. Overall, a nice house with some nice updates, but a great view makes it all the more enjoyable. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Eric S. Dec 2013
Such a perfect location - right across the street from the beach. The dining area is perfect -- a big table with ocean views, opening up to the spacious kitchen and living area. We had a great few days in this home. It is set up well for big groups, with lots of dishes and towels.
Now the odd things: there were lots of burnt out light bulbs. Many of the electrical outlets don`t work. The heater in the downstairs main area doesn`t work. The downstairs lamp had no shade. There`s a nice looking audio system that didn`t work.
I`m not sure what the $50 non-refundable damage deposit is for, but seems like it could be used to fix some of these things.
Overall, a great house with some odd exceptions.

Donna B. Oct 2013
I thought this was ocean front, it`s not but is just a short walk. Good size table/chairs for groups. Good mattresses and comfortable furniture always a plus for senior groups. Ample parking. Well stocked kitchen.Quick response from management for requested window cleaning.
Only negative is the price....more than similar houses even with winter rates in effect. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The Sitka House is good for larger groups and is very conveniently located. Access to the beach is great and the views are lovely. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Heather B. Aug 2013
The description for this house is misleading. Considering the high price and the online description, we expected more. This house had a number of issues: The walls are scuffed and dirty; all the kitchen cupboards are sticky; windows are dirty; there is almost no furniture in the upstairs bedrooms and no closet rod in one of the bedrooms; “Jacuzzi” tub in the upstairs bathroom is a small tub with a sliding shower door, right next to the toilet; the third bathroom downstairs is incredibly small so as to be almost unusable; the hot tub smells very strongly of chemicals and is basically just off a road/thorough way to the beach so is not at all private; the “the kids’ room with a bunk bed is very small and the top bunk is not kid proof (no railing and shaky); the kitchen is not well equipped—chipped dishes, almost no coffee mugs, broken coffee grinder, no dishwasher soap, bent silver wear; under cabinet lights are not working and there were not enough pans; house phones do not work; downstairs bedrooms smell musty.
The house was still being cleaned when we arrived at 4pm and we could not get in until 5:15pm. We did gratefully receive a refund for this inconvenience.
This house does have a great view and nice open living room and dining room— large comfortable sofa and a nice large table-- a great space for family groups. The proximity to the beach is excellent; deck and table on the deck was a pleasant extra space to hang out; area is quiet and the house is close enough to walk to town in 15-20 minutes; nice to have books and games.

This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Caroline S. Aug 2013
We really loved the big table--by bringing two deck chairs in all 13 of us fit. We loved the closeness of the beach and the fact there were so many towels (we had brought extra for the kids so we wouldn`t use the nice house ones but the extras were great for the hot tub). Three bathrooms were great w our 13 people. Five bedrooms gave everyone privacy. Great kitchen and we always like to add a thing or two so got a couple bread baskets, some measuring utensils and some glass wine glasses (which we brought home, however). There were a few lightbulbs missing if you need a suggestion. Thank you for having ice made for our arrival. The whole family is hoping Sitka House will be available for when we come next year.

The house was in a great location - convienently located to Manzanita and the beach. However, the house wasn`t super clean; the carpet wasn`t vacuumed and the floors in the kitchen hadn`t been swept. All of the plugs on the wall with the windows did not work. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

I want to rent this again for next year, week of July 4th. I understood you were checking to see if it would be available and contact me. Have not heard yet, no hurry, just to want to miss out. It is a great house for our family and we all have enjoyed for a number of years. Please advise as to what is the next step. Only complaint is, again, the outlets not working on the west wall in dining and living room. You sent someone out to check it out and they had never seen where the same outlet, the bottom one works but the top one does not. Said it must be something in the wiring, in the wall and needed an electrician. Anyway, could not ask for a better house.

We originally booked another house but had to move because the owners rented it for the season and the property management company was unaware of this. They handled the situation well and upgraded us to this house. It definitely wasn`t my first choice but it turned out to be nice for our group. The location is perfect, directly across the street from the beach and a mile south of town.

The house needs some sounds like new carpet is on it`s way...some freshly painted walls would help a lot. It`s a bit outdated and the carpet in the bathroom needs to go. It`s definitely not fancy but a nice, open floor plan that works great for large groups (we had 11). The upstairs furniture looks new and is nice. There is a large table that seats a lot of people, which we loved.

We would stay here again in the future. Thank you! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This is our 3rd stay at Sitka House and upon arrival we were thrilled to see the addition of a new bed frame in the MBR, a new grill outside and the new sofa which replaced the badly worn old sofa.

The house was very, very clean but we could not rate it 5 stars because there were dirty sheets left in a dresser which we started to put on a bed before seeing they were not clean. (These could have been shoved in there by a previous guest.)Also,some of the blankets did not seem clean but the staff responded immediately to all concerns we had.
This is a great gathering home for a large family with a table that seats 11 and lots of room in the living room. New carpeting and a fresh coat of paint would do wonders for this house. There are plenty of supplies to get you started such as soap for the dishwasher, washing machine and sinks and tp. The short walk to the beach is easy even for young children.
We would book this home again if the owners continue to show an interest in the upkeep. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The location was a pleasant surprise with a view of the ocean
The hot tub was great, enjoyed by all. The kitchen was clean and very accomodating. The beds were adequate for our large family group.
The carpets were soiled and the walls were marked up. The bathrooms with carpeting gave a general feeling of uncleanliness.
The lock to an upstairs bedroom door was broken and we feared being locked in the room. We taped it open to prevent the locking mechanism from engaging.
It appears the property is for sale and you have neglected any maintainace for future guests. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The location is great for beach access, the large livingroom/dining area & deck were perfect for our big family dinners and breakfast. The TV/DVD/internet didn`t work but we didn`t mind as we were there for the beach. Great house for family get togethers!
The beds/bathrooms/kitchen were very clean and comfrotable. The carpet was clean but stained, but again very comfortable.

The staff was helpful initially setting up the rental but that was the end of their helpfulness. This is the 6th year in a row my Mom and five sisters have rented a house at the OR coast. First time to use this service. The house felt "dirty", (walls need
to be washed and/or painted, carpets cleaned) view windows were filthy, leg on table in BR broken as well as the closet door. No DW soap as promised. There is a step to nowhere outside the entry door that 2 of us tripped on and my 86 year old Mom tripped on
and fell. She got some major cuts and bruises. We went to the rental agency and discussed these matters with them. We suggested that they paint a white or yellow area on the outside of the step for better visibility. There wasn`t a sorry, how are you feeling
now or even a "we will look into it". Very disappointed and will never want to use this service again. They sent us out the door with DW soap which was the same detergent in the laundry room for washing towels, etc. In all of our 6 years we have never been
this unhappy with a rental. Our families rent many homes in other areas and this is still the number one bummer for all 7 of us. We will never rent this house again or use this service. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We all ended up with multiple flea bites while at this home. It was supposed to be a pet free home, and yet I saw several fleas on my feet. I did kill one, and took it to the office after our stay. They tried to make it sound like it was just the sand
fleas (which I did see at the beach). These were the small red fleas that are found on pets. We were very unhappy about my nearly 30 flea bites. Every single one of us had nearly that many. We were told "sorry" and not given any discounts. I have always appreciated
Sunset Vacation Rentals, but was unhappy with this particular vacation. If I spend nearly $2400 for a week`s vacation, I really think I should get what I pay for, and not poor layout for lack of privacy (windward house) transfer to sitka house...which the
switch to that house was troublesome also. We were told to `hang out at the beach for an hour`. The jacuzzi cleaner came and kicked us out of the hot tub at windward house, and yet the jacuzzi at the sitka house was in much worse shape and we weren`t able
to use it until the next morning. I`m not sure I will ever use SVR again. We have been faithful customers for the last 6 years, and have rented through you at least 4 times. I don`t think we really received good customer service through the office in Manzanita.

This is our second year at Sitka House. It did not seem as clean as last year and seemed a bit more run down. One of the king-sized beds was broken last year and we had asked that it be replaced and it was not. It was broken again this year, but maintenance
fixed it (the frame) immediately after learning about it. Despite these shortcomings the location is great and the common rooms are spacious and perfect for a family gathering. The staff was very attentive to requests/needs during our stay.

Great location. Windy beach most afternoons. I wish there was some outdoor furniture for the deck. Dressers in the upstairs bedrooms would be great. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Cindy G. Jul 2011
Great location, great beach access, and quiet area. The house had plenty of sheets, towels, and kitchen supplies. My only complaint is that the house needs a good cleanout with some maintenance. Lots of `junk` in the cupboards. The policies in the book in the house conflicted with what was given by the property management place. And the starter kits of laundry soap and dishwashing soap were very minimal. Manzanita is a great location! A beautiful beach, very nice downtown and shopping area. It resembled Cannon Beach on a much smaller scale without the crowds! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Minuses: most closets were not supplied with hangers - we had to buy more; outside deck lights not all working; was not warned about racoons at night on decks; no bungee cords for trash cans - we used ours; need clarification of `summer` - `winter` times for trash pick up; outside of kitchen cupboard doors very sticky; need new broom; ++Pluses: Covered deck was great for BBQ; new gas grill; kitchen well equiped; House basically felt clean; clean bedding; clean baths; the view of ocean was good, though blocked directly in front; This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We enjoyed the house. Some of the furnishings were out of date and shabby, but it is a beach house. The eating area is terrific. We had a full house and it worked well. Glad you got the new grill. You may want to get a cover for it so it will last longer.

Thanks again.

Sitka House is a great gathering place with 5 bedrooms and a table large enough for everyone to sit together at meal times.
It has a lovely ocean view and an easy walk to the beach. The kitchen is well-equipped and appliances are in working order. Our guests felt the king size beds were uncomfortable but managed okay for 5 nights.
The outdoor grill is too dirty to use, but the house itself could not have been cleaner...not a grain of sand out of place! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

In general, our family loves staying at the Sitka House. This is our 3rd time. I feel the condition of the house has deteriorated. The door knob of the bottom door is loose; the gate on the upper level is falling apart; the dryer could not handle average loads. We were disappointed to find the upper bunk had no railing, after having asked specifically for one. The windows are dirty, which interfers with the view. We did appreciate the lamp in the living room. We like the long table in the eating area. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Everything was in tip-top condition, with a few exceptions. The BBQ was very dirty, don`t know how that could be fixed without buying a new one. (It was listed as among the amenities). Showers and TV very challenging even for the techies among us. Zig-saw puzzles nice touch. Then the washing machine broke down, last day so it only involved you people. We found Sunset Rentals very accomdating, friendly and easy to work with. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

It wasn`t a bad little place that fit the 10 of us and a small dog very well. The pictures give it a look as if the beach is right outside your door but it`s across the street about 30yrds. You do however have a great view from the kitchen/ living room of the ocean. The beds were comfortable and so was the rest of the furniture. The only negative thing I can really say is that the oven took a long time to heat up but once it did it cooked fine. The kitchen was large enough and there was a lot of room for us to gather. I would rent the house again the next time we head up there.

The only thing that concerened us was the warnings that came from the neighbors. They said that this house was known as a party house and also that the hot tub has been know to be the central party location and people have been reported to have got skin rashes and funky bugs from it. We have no idea if this is true or not but, it did make us think though and we never made it into the hot tub once. This is not something you want to hear when you rent a house. Other than that the house was overall nice. it worked for us. Unfortunitly we will not rent that particular house again...Sorry!

For our extended family, the layout and location of the Sitka House is ideal. It does need more reading lights in the living room and the easy chairs are coming apart. This was the problem last year too. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Betsy M. Aug 2009
the location of the house is great. The views are wonderful. but the house is now tired and needs updating badly. Stuffing was coming out of one of the chairs in the living room. we could not make the lights turn on in one of the 3 bathrooms, the carpet is stained and one the bedspreads in falling apart. Maybe little things but if improved would make a big difference in the feel of the house. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This house is wonderful for a large party of adults - one of the few homes we`ve found on the beach that has multiple bedrooms with full+ beds. The location is great - just across from the beach, and the view from the deck is wonderful. Kitchen relatively well equipped, and a comfy, open dining and living area. The property managers are very nice, accommodating and helpful. All in all a great stay! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Linda S. Aug 2009
Generally we found the house great, there were some problems with working appliances like microwaves and toasters along with telephones, and remote controls. Those little things were a nusence but not a hinderance to an enjoyable stay. Those things need to be looked into, probably just fresh batteries. Generally we have a wonderful time and enjoyed the location and view. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

this was our 3rd stay there in 5 (!) years and in those 5 years NOTHING has been done to keep the house in shape. This time some furniture was broken, the mixers and toaster didn`t work, the garbage disposal was disconnected (presumably broken and not fixed) The carpet still had the same stains from 5 years ago and many more. The bathrooms with the carpet in them were disgusting to walk on. There is no where to put clothes in the upstairs two bedrooms. All in all the whole house need to be attended to and fixed. It needs new carpet and NO carpets in the bathrooms. We will not rent their again as much as the location is ideal. Oh and the jetted bathtub gave all the kids a bad rash, because the jets hadn`t been cleaned. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

If you have a large group, especially with kids, this home is great. It is right across the street from the beach access, so our kids (10-13 yrs) could go by themselves. There is a nice view of the ocean from the great room. The only problems we had should be easily fixed: downstairs bed frame broken, upstairs tv not user friendly, and no propane for gas grill. I would consider staying again! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We were unhappy with the amount of broken items, lack of toilet paper upon arrival. No dishwasher soap. It would have been nice if in the list of items to bring there was things like a sponge to do dishes, garbage can liners, non-stick frying pans and/or cooking spray. I brought a lot of personal items, I didn`t realize I had to bring everything to stay in a house. Usually when I rent condo`s this is all provided. Overall it was a nice house, but we were not prepared for all the extras we needed to go buy at the very expensive corner market. Many of the items that the list said would be provided were not at the house and we had to go buy those items too.

We loved the Sitka house, its location and comfort, especially the hot tub (once it was fixed- thanks Dwayne) One thing we did find annoying was the lack of a sponge to scrub pots with and dishwashing detergent. We loaded up the dishwasher yet we couldn`t run it- we dirtied pots and couldn`t clean them well enough. A few little things would have helped us help you. We`ll be back, and maybe if we think about it, we`ll bring our own scrubby and dishwasher detergent- Thanks- Chris This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
