We had a wonderful stay in this perfect beach home. Everything was close. Kitchen was well stocked. King bed was comfortable. I don’t have anything negative to say. We will be back with some grandkids. There is a perfect space for them!!
DawnDee W. Dec 2022
This was a great place to stay for my family and I (husband, adult son, and two tiny dogs). We enjoyed the ocean view, easy access to the beach, and closeness to the main town area. This home had everything we needed for our beach getaway.
Guy C. Nov 2022
Great three-night trip to this comfortable home on the beach. Dog friendly and stocked with everything we needed for a wonderful trip. Checkin process very simple and house was very clean. Will definitely return.
Daniel A. Sep 2022
Vintage charm throughout this super clean beach house. Super easy walk to the beach and lovely views from the deck. Perfect weekend getaway.
Jonathan W. Sep 2022
Great home with a cool 70s vibe. Location and views are fantastic. Vast collection of movies on VHS (yes, video tapes) and a National Geographic magazine collection going back to 1961! The home had everything we needed. We had a problem with the tv and someone was there to fix it right away. King bed was comfy. We would definitely stay there again!
Mark S. Sep 2022
Fantastic stay with excellent beach access! Photos very representative. Thoroughly enjoyed!

Daylene M. Jul 2022
Nice to be so close to the ocean. Suited our family and dog needs. Could use some updates and maybe a few newer towels, linens and dishes and cups. However, it.still was a great location and we loved the walks on the beautiful beach.
Jeff S. Jun 2022
The weather fore cast for the time of our stay was terrible, surprise it was pretty nice and we got out for walks each day, we always enjoy Manzanita, and Sunset Rentals have clean houses and make our stays better.

We spend Christmas each year on the oregon coast, eexcept 2020. We have stayed in other places, but enjoy Manzanita the most. This house fits our needs very well. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Jan N. Dec 2021
We loved this house! It’s simple yet comfortable and the location right on the dunes with a view over the grass toward the sea can’t be beat! It was also great to be able to bring our pup - he was so happy running around on the beach! The house is also close to the little town so also a very convenient location. We would love to return here. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Wonderful location and perfect fit for our family. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Gregory P. Oct 2021
Excellent location, easy beach access, close to shops and restaurants. Baking sheets need replaced. Master Bedroom mattress is old, broke down, and very uncomfortable. Would not stay here again until mattress is replaced. Given the cost, there`s no excuse not to have a quality mattress and a good night`s sleep. Bunk bed in second bedroom pushed right up against baseboard heater with burn marks on the wood. Not the safest set up. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Margaret C. Aug 2021
Our family has stayed at this house for over 15 years. Love it.
We would appreciate if the TV were a smart tv, as that`s how we watch movies now.
It`d be nice to have the front windows cleaned outside. Also a towel rack in bathroom. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

it was okay except the kitchen pots and pans were disgusting and we couldn`t use them. So if people didn`t want to cook then it was fine. Those items need to be replaced The cleaners did great job This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Rachel K. Feb 2021
Easy to find, easy to get into. Everything draws you towards the windows looking out over the ocean, which you can see all day from inside the house until it`s fully dark. Stocked with equipment for a cook. Less than five minute walk on the dunes and sand to the actual ocean.

Good for a solo traveler and probably also for a couple with a dog or a couple small kids. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Lisa F. Feb 2021
Overall was just fine and the location was spectacular. Many of the dishes were dirty and the extra blanket i. The closet was dirty. They were unwilling to replace it with a new one. Due to Covid, they removed basics like salt and pepper, oil, etc, claiming that it is difficult to sanitize these. Place is very dated, but spacious. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Elyse B. Jan 2021
Cute house. We found everything we needed in the house. The property is at a great location of the beach that wasn’t too busy with other beach goers. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Damian M. Dec 2020
The house was great. The location was amazing. Step off the back porch and you are in the beach grass with the beach only 100yrds away. It was also less than a 10min walk to the main strip in Manzanita. The house itself was very comfortable and offered all that we could have wanted. We especially loved the wood fireplace. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a cozy beach get away. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Richard D. Oct 2020
Wonderful time at the beach house again. Everything was as explained before our arrival and everthing was prepared for our stay. Thanks for making this time so special. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Dean L. Oct 2020
This home needs so much updating. Not sure how much has been done to do this since it was built. Floors, carpet, window blinds (vinyl mini-blinds that are at least 20 years old) and a coffee table that was so scratched and pitted it should have taken out years ago.. The 2 chairs on the deck were cheap plastic ones that I’m sure cost less than $10 each. And no table to place food or drinks on while on the deck. We were so excited for our stay as we have been going to Manzanita for over 30 years for vacations. However, this trip was definitely are worse visit ever. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Ten days too short This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Ailsa K. Jan 2020
The Sandy Shores property provided us an ideal location at a reasonable price. It is right on the beach and easily walkable from town. The kitchen is well equipped, the owners provide many entertainment options, and dogs are welcome!
Many people think of Manzanita in the summer but winter in Manzanita is breathtakingly beautiful, too. In the time of our December stay, we experienced rain, wind and a surprising 60+ degree sunny day!
The map on the Airbnb site made it look like the property was a block away from the beach but it is on the oceanfront with a trail through the sand dunes right to the beach. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Katrina N. Oct 2019
This is the second time we have rented Sandy Shores in Oct to celebrate Mom;s birthday. We love dog friendly Manzanita. Sandy Shores has the perfect location, good access to the beach and close enough to town. We love this house because of the easy ocean view from the entire front of the house. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
John K. Oct 2019
We had a great family reunion close to the beach. It was the perfect location for us including our dog! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Seana M. May 2019
We loved staying at this house and it had all the amenities we needed! The house was clean, well equipped (there were even dogsheets left for us to cover the furniture. Literally the only thing missing we would have wanted was a tea kettle/tea pot but the coffee maker worked great. This house had stunning views of the ocean and was a quick walk down the sandy path to the beach. We will DEFINITELY be back! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Morag C. Nov 2018
Like a lot of rental homes you are required to strip the bedding and wash the sheets and pillows. The morning I did this the pillows in the main room and the room with the bunk beds had old pillows that had yellow stains on both sides and one had dried blood. I can’t beli I slept on that pillow and so did my family! Pillows are inexpensive and often you see at least pillow covers which can be washed but this was not the case. I also removed the main bedroom comforter because although it did not smell it was old and dated and really needs replacing. This is an expensive rental unit so I’m surprised at the horrible quality of overall bedding. People sleep here and I would bring my own bedding next time. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Mary R. Nov 2018
We felt very at home here. We were real pleased in how clean it was in that we wanted to respect it in taking care of it during our stay. And it was well stocked with all that we would ever need on vacation. And the community of Manzanita was warm and welcoming. We loved our vacation in this beautiful home. Thank you!

My 2 sisters came to visit from the Midwest and love the ocean. Rain or shine the house was perfect. We stayed in the same place 2 yrs ago and came back to the same place. Had a issue with micro wave and they came and fixed it right away. Much appreciated. Thanks.

We love this place. It is relatively close to downtown with great privacy. This was the cleanest it has ever been. We hope to keep returning. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Tanni W. Aug 2018
Loved our stay at Sandy shores. The dunes drop down right in front of this house so you can actually see the sea. My kids loved the sand and the dunes.

Home clean and well kept. Affordable. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Melissa G. Apr 2018
Sandy Shores was a lovely, well appointed home for us to spend a long rainy weekend in Manzanita. The beds were comfortable, the living space was open and cozy and the fireplace was exactly what we needed. The beach access was convenient and ocean view from the house is lovely. We were so pleased. Sunset Vacation Rentals made our checkin and checkout incredibly simple and the four of us had a great time. We hope to be back again soon. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Sara F. Mar 2018
This was a perfect oceanfront property! Beautiful view and very cozy living area. Loved all of the main spaces looked out at the ocean. The fireplace and the couch made it so you never wanted to leave. I tried to look at booking here again for the summer but its all booked up. I`ll definitely be staying here again!

Wonderful place to relax and enjoy the Oregon Coast. Weather turned out to be great. Rained occasionally around 3- 4 in the morning but otherwise great. All the appliance we would have at home and such a great view from the front room. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Richard L. Sep 2017
I would give everything a 5 star rating except for 1 thing I really feel important that staff could do in FULL DISCLOSURE. We called and spoke with Sunset Vacation Rentals and had most excellent experience with staff and there service was awesome. However, they did not mention during time of making the reservation that streets were being repaved while we were staying. Had that been the case, I wouldn`t be writing all this. An upfront, forthcoming, heads up would have been all I needed and would have been a decent courtesy to guests. I didn`t mind having to park down the street for 24 hours. But having a 6000 pound road roller/compactor shake the house and the items off the shelf at 7:30am on my vacation was very disturbing. Alarming Unwanted Wake-up! We dealt with it, but I would be honest, that really calls for transparency by the vacation rental company. I didn`t demand a refund, but I would sure welcome it if they would offer one. That`s all.
Other than the home being a time capsule for 1972 including wall panels, light fixtures and linoleum from that era... our stay was great. Also there is bare Romex 120Volt electrical wiring in the garage right next to a dart board!! That needs to be enclosed in a conduit, folks.
I could see this place getting an updated renovation... but it would probably reduce margins for the owners/vacation rental. The other thing to be aware of is the public access to the beach is 8 feet away if you are somewhat more private than some. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Great house and location. Just far enough from town to be quiet yet an easy walk. Best of all one of the few places that allow pets. Our dog had an amazing time too! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This was the perfect little beach house for our family. Couldn`t ask for a better location; what a view! Close enough to walk to quaint Manzanita. House was very clean and comfortable furnishings. The management company was great to work with too. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Nancy F. Nov 2016
This is our favorite place to stay in Manzanita. We love the close proximity to the beach, to the park and downtown Manzanita. We had awesome storms this time and enjoyed visiting and watching Christmas movies. We visited family And friends that we don`t see often enough. The couch is so comfy and seats 4 comfortably stretched out. We always go to the Apple grocery store. The people there always make you feel welcome and want to return. Can`t wait to return. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Jeff H. Sep 2016
Perfect beach house. Everything you could want in a beach home. Close proximity to town so that you can walk to shops/restaurants. Wonderfully laid out kitchen/living/dining rooms so that our whole group could be together while cooking and relaxing. The beach and surrounding seaside are remarkably beautiful. We`ll be making a return trip in the future and will look to rent this home again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This simple and charming little cottage was just perfect for our two families. It had everything we needed; was easy to access the beach; easy walking to town; great sunset sessions on the balcony. Loved that it is dog friendly. Keen to return! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Susan F. Jul 2016
This was our second stay at Sandy Shores and it was just as pleasant as our first time. The home was very clean, even the garage (with ping pong table) was neat and clean! We love the three-sided deck. You can sit in shade or sun and also avoid the wind. You are minutes from beach and 10 minutes walk to town. We walked back and forth and enjoyed the exercise. Come enjoy a very nice vacation cabin with great views. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We were greeted by new rugs this trip. They look awesome. Weather was outstanding for the week. Took lots of beach walks. The trail in the park is close by and wonderful. We love the Grocery store. Folks there love their jobs and it shows. Had a few fires in the fireplace. We feel at home there. So cozy. Love the couch. It`s perfect for whale watching, which we saw, enjoying the fireplace or reading a good book. You cannot find a more perfect location or home. Can`t wait to return.

Nancy F. Dec 2015
This has become our favorite vacation home on the Oregon coast. It is the perfect place in an ideal location. The cozy couch in front of the window allows you to enjoy the ocean no matter what the weather brings. Has an awesome fireplace too. We love the grocery store on the Main Street. Folks there love their jobs. We had difficulty with the wifi. Called the management and within an hour someone was there and problem fixed. 2 Sisters and Pete`s make the most fabulous pies. It is a must. It is a perfect place for a family or friends to enjoy all that Manzanita has to offer. I would highly recommend it.

We rented Sandy Shores to celebrate my Mother's 81st birthday. The house was just right for Mom, myself and two sisters. We choose to stay in and make dinner both nights, you can't beat the view from the dining room table at this property. And lucky us, as we sat in the sun on the deck on Sat afternoon, we had a great show with several whales and dolphins spouting and leaping. Great weekend for everyone. We are so pleased that this wonderful house, and the whole town of Manzanita, is dog friendly. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company
Susan F. Oct 2015
My husband and I stayed here for a few nights in September. If you`re looking for plush and fancy, don`t come. This cabin is a well-stocked and clean with amazing views of the ocean. I didn`t include comfortable because it`s time for a new sofa. It looks fine but watching tv or reading, killed my back. There is a big dining room table that also faces the ocean and the kitchen window looks out to Neakahnie Mtn. Kitchen well equipped and full-size refrigerator. Towels are old but do the job and you also have a washer/dryer. There is a three-sided deck with chairs that faces the ocean and also has a propane grill. We walked into town every day (10 minutes) and carried groceries home no problem. We would definitely rent again but we`re hoping for a new sofa.

Noelle M. Sep 2015
This was our second year back and we were not disappointed...we had a wonderful 10 day stay in Manzanita and love staying at Sandy Shores. Part of the charm of this place is that while the property itself it basic, the location and price make up for any possible `shortfall`...although we noticed that the rate has increased for next year and being from Canada with a very weak dollar, we are likely not going to be travelling in the US for a while.

Tiffany T. May 2015
We had a wonderful time, couldn't have enjoyed it more. The home was ideally situated at the path to the shore. We were able to bring our travel team, two dogs, which made it immensely more enjoyable for all of us. We sat for hours on the porch while our dogs played in the high grass. We read with the ocean as our landscape. We laughed, talked and just relaxed. We took a leisurely walk on the beach every morning, walking towards Laneda where we would leash up the dogs and enjoy coffee at one of the shops. Then back to the beach for a romp and walk back to the house. Manzanita offered varied and enjoyable dining and we had a wonderful time at EVOO in Canon Beach. Just wonderful all the way around. Only two things the property could have had: a working dryer since we did do some laundry and a hair dryer since I forgot mine. Overall, not a problem in either case.

Coleman S. Apr 2015
The rental property was excellent.
Not to small or to big.
Was very clean, which we loved.
Could not have had a better location.
Very close to the beautiful beach and walk able to dining areas.
We had a great time and would return for another visit.
Also recommend to other people.
Thank you. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This is the perfect spring break getaway. Location is perfect, right on the beach.

The house wa perfect for the two of us. Very close to the water and had all the conveniences that one would need. Extremely clean and neat. A bit dated, but other than that it was perfect. SUnset Vacation staff was the best. Very amenable and fun to talk with. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Randi B. Feb 2015
The location couldn't be better, the beach was just on the other side of the sand dune. I could see the public access trail being busy in the summer, but wasn't too bad on our visit. The house itself is a 60's/70's original, could use a major overhaul to update. We also noticed quite a few cobwebs needing some cleaning. Overall, the furniture was comfortable and the location was great. One disappointment was on arrival the key code provided did not work when we arrived in the dark at 8pm with a crying baby we had to call to try and get in only to find out we had a dated code. An update should have been provided prior to arrival, that is a management issue. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company

Just the perfect getaway! Super clean, right on the beach, well equipped (except no corkscrew this time!), cozy and clearly well cared for. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Maria R. Dec 2014
It was cold outside but the heaters kept us warm. We had a few problems.There was a leak in the roof right over the couch, only a few paper towels on the roll and no refill, one burner on the stove didn`t work and the wifi didn`t work either. After an attempt to fix the wifi by Sunset Rentals we were left to call RTI for help ourselves and they could not fix if over the phone either. This is not what we want to do on vacation so we just did without for our trip which made for a grumpy 10 year old. All that said we would like to give this house a try again in warm weather. It really is a great location. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We stayed in another rental in Manzanita last year which we loved but it was just a little too far to the beach. We really wanted to stay right on the beach and this is exactly that...a great beach cabin, situated right on the beach and beside the beach path. The cabin itself is clean and has everything you need. The beds are really comfortable and seem quite new, the couch is perfect to stretch out on and read a good book. The second bedroom has 2 `adult` bunk beds so the bottom is a double and the top a twin (sleeping 6 if needed) and a king in the master bedroom. Lots of towels, blankets and pillows...but some basics missing from the kitchen (blender, measuring cups, kettle) but the location cannot be beat so next time, we`ll bring a kettle :) This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Great place, right on the beach, comfortable and well appointed. House is early 80`s but clean and comfortable. Kitchen had what we needed. Nice quiet neighborhood with sounds of the ocean. We booked at the last minute, literally the night before. We were taken care of quickly and had all we needed for our spontaneous trip to the coast. The house is on the beach with unobstructed views of the ocean, walkway access right next to us, convenient. Deck faces the ocean and you can sit and ponder the sunset. Walk to town was easy. We will stay here again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We love this house and location. Rented it every summer for 8 years. Our only wish is that the price doesn`t keep rising (price goes up each year, now at $1200 more than the price 7 years ago (two weeks rental). WHOA! please.

As always, the house, view, location are perfect. It is time, however, to upgrade the television signal to HD. Although I do not go to the coast to watch TV, I am not ashamed to admit that it is nice to turn it on now and again. Watching a standard def signal on an HDTV is like watching a moving impressionist painting. Not having an HD signal in 2014 is akin to having a black and white console in the `80`s. It is time to upgrade. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Arrived to a very clean beachfront house. Everything was in good condition. Kitchen was well stocked with cooking and dining ware. All electrical appliances. The big front room (living room/dining room) had an amazing view of the ocean, and was well set up for relaxing and entertaining. The living room had a huge comfortable wrap around couch, and a big fireplace. The dining room had a large table that comfortably seated 8. A deck wraps around the house and is great to hang out on when the weather is nice. Having a BBQ would be even better, but was not provided. Also, the 11am check out crept up on us too fast. The house was so comfortable, that we didn`t want to leave. The house is pet friendly, but there were no signs that pets had been there. We brought a dog and she loved it too. I have vacationed at the beach for over 40 years, and this place was one of the best for it`s price. I would definitely recommend this rental to my friends, and would stay here again myself. I`m planning on it. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Router repeatedly reset/disconnected, otherwise everything in the property worked fine. The very close proximity of the beach access route to the cabin should be mentioned in the description - big issue if you have dogs.

We have stay here 4 different time through out the years. We loved the new King bed in the master bedroom, very comfortable. would love to have a TV with cable in the bedrooms,so you could get to get away from everyone at bed time. This is an older home but it is so cozy and comfortable. The couch is so comfy. It has everything you would ever need. Plan a return trip in the future.

I have stayed there before. You cannot beat the location. It is a short walk to town and a few steps to the ocean. The house is cozy, has everything you could want. Kitchen is well stocked. Beds are comfortable. Fireplace is great. There is a nice tv, but with the view and lots of books, it was seldom used. Can`t wait to return. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Debbie G. Feb 2014
We really liked our stay at Sandy Shores ! The house was so clean and we loved just walking out the door down to the beach & (so did the dogs!!) The kitchen is perfect and having the fireplace created the perfect atmosphere.
We will most certainly go back.

Being on the beach is the main draw for this property. It is older and dated, but clean and has everything you need for a stay. Nice bonuses are a sectional couch where you can cozy up to someone and a large screen TV. So many beach rentals have furniture that does not encourage snuggling and romance. The bed is INCREDIBLY comfortable.

My only negative is I do not like being forced to purchase $50 insurance for a 2 night stay. I am very careful and never break anything. Being forced to buy insurance that is non refundable is an extra charge that is NOT appreciated. I will consider that heavily before using this vacation rental company again.

This is a great place to stay, and we've been staying here for going on 12 years now. We love the wrap-around couch, the full kitchen, the quiet, the sound of the ocean, the proximity to town--Close, but not too close--a perfect walk. Thanks for another great vacation!

We loved Manzanita and the location of house was good with regard to view and beach access. Where the property lacks is in the details. It was `end of season tired.` The flooring needed to be cleaned, the lock box was hard to operate, the road side of the house needs maintenance and the couch was soiled enough that we put blankets on it. It was fine for our 2 person get-a-way but there wouldn`t be a place to put luggage, etc for much more than that even though there are more beds. We enjoyed the local restaurants and didn`t cook meals so we can`t comment on the kitchen much. The master bed was comfortable, the view from the dining room table spectacular and the fireplace was a pleasant feature for after dinner relaxing. For the price this was a very enjoyable little house. The owners wouldn`t need to spend much to update it a little and make it a 5 star location.

Dennis R. Oct 2013
The property was even better than described. Had a problem with the tv reception and the management company sent a technician out immediately (at 8:00 on a Friday night!) and the problem was solved. I would definitely stay here again. Perfect place for one couple and children (although we didn`t bring any children, we brought my parents....which are a little like children now) :-)

My only suggestion would be to add a BBQ/grill. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Mary M. Aug 2013
We loved the house and location. We had no contact with the managment, because the directions were easy to follow and all went as planned, even though it was booked back to back. The only suggestion I have is that it could use vacuming under the furniture. Also, it would be nice to have the $50. unrefundable damage fee applied to the next reservation with Sunset Vacation Rentals, if there was no damage. All in all, it is a great, fun house!

This cottage was in a great location - right on the beach and close to Town. The cottage was very clean and the furniture was nice. Beautiful view of the ocean from the dining room window. We enjoyed our stay and the property management company was very easy and pleasant to deal with. We would definately stay here again if ever out this way.

We had a great time over the holiday week end. it went by too fast.

Patti G. Mar 2013
This house was clean and well-equipped. We cooked several meals and did not lack anything. It`s nice to have a property that allows dogs and yet is in great shape. Perfect for access to the beach and the view is incredible. The only downside is the sleeping arrangements. It`s perfect for one family with children, but not so great for two couples. All in all, we would rent this property again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Home was great location, beach front & very short walk to town, great space for a couple with baby and dog. Home was clean, furniture was comfortable, and kitchen had what we needed. Space is great for two adults and children, unless you don`t mind sleeping on bunk beds. We would stay here again. SSVR has always been helpful.

Kimberley C. Jan 2013
The house was super clean, and very well stocked. Very quiet and cozy. Nothing deluxe--awesome mix of new(er) furniture and 80s decor--feels like it could be your relatives` beach house, not a real rental. Everything went smoothly, everything was as advertised. We are already planning our next visit. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Leslie M. Oct 2012
Wonderful getaway, perfect location, heaven for us and our dog. It could use a bit more in the kitchen, like a broiler pan or cookie sheets.
A bit sandy in the sofa and the porch when we arrived, otherwise quite clean. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Susan S. Sep 2012
We've stayed at Sandy Shores several times over the past few years. Maintenance has always been a problem. One year, we replaced the ripped front screen door ourselves. This year, the shower/tub sliding door fell off, when my husband was getting ready for a bath. Fortunately, he wasn't in the tub yet. It's difficult to figure out how to use the satellite dish(think it was broken)--not a big deal, but needs repair.

The place is well-furnished, clean ,and comfortable, and we love the giant couch!

Thanks,

Sue Skinner

Deanna P. Aug 2012
New bed in master!! That would have been the only negative to our stay but it was replaced midway. Great location-public trail to beach did not effect us or our dog and made for a straight shot down. Everything was clean and well put together and the kitchen was equipped for as much cooking as we like to do on vacation:) This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Ingrid S. Aug 2012
The location was great, but the stream of people down the beach access path next to the house was provoking our dog to bark. The home was comfy and cozy, with great window views of the beach. The ping pong table needs upgraded supplies and a fan for the garage, and the master bedroom could use a new mattress, but we had a lovely time! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Margaret C. Jul 2012
We have rented this property for the past 5 years, every summer. This year was not so great. The shower door, always rickety, fell out completely - onto my child`s foot, and she had to get 3 stiches at the ER. Also, the back bedroom bed is very uncomfortable (soft in the center) so we did not use that room again. Also lots of pet hair in the house. We hope all this will be repaired next year. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Joan F. Jul 2012
We have stayed at this location many times. It is right on the beach and was very clean, and has great water pressure! They added a new table which is great. We are hoping that they add a new bed in the one room as it is very noisy and uncomfortable. It would be great if new mattresses would be provided. Ping Pong table is fun. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Diane K. Jul 2012
Nice location but next to trail to beach so we had people walking next to us. Queen bed was not comfortable and probably should be replaced. Some wear and tear on house but that is to be expected based on the location. Maybe a little pricey for the overall experience. BBQ and more outside seating would be nice(picnic table). Didn`t use the table tennis in garage and could not find light switch. Like that it had two toliet. Well stocked - I brought extra paper towels and toliet paper and really didn`t need to use them. Also could use a cookie sheet or baking sheets. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We could'nt have gotten luckier with the weather especially in April. Clear blue & hovering around 70 degrees! The house is perfect for a nice getaway with friends & family. The views are great from the living/dining room & on the adjacent deck as well. Oceanfront views & direct access to the beach make this home a great place to stay at. We will definitely book again. My only complaint as others have stated in past reviews is that the mattresses have seen better days. If the mattresses, pillows, & bedding were updated I think this place would be really close to perfect. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company

Home is in the perfect place. Views are outstanding. It is in walking distance to downtown Manzanita and right on the beach.

We absolutely love this house - it's the perfect location and size for our growing family. We noticed and appreciated all the upgrades as well - from the new windows, new dining table to the very clean & neat interior. The only thing we'd like to see changed out is the mattresses. The queen has NO support & we spent our nights trying to clutch the sides. The kids mattress is on its last legs as well. But! other than that the stay was perfect. Thank you again! we'll be back... hopefully soon! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company
