Valentine's house was absolutely perfect. Two blocks from the beach and three blocks from the commercial district. We didn't get in our car once! Very comfortable beds and the kitchen was well outfitted with pots and pans, etc. Would absolutely stay there again.
Harmony P. Jun 2022
This was our 5th annual stay at the Valentine house! It's the best -- cute, has an open and bright living space, and is a block from the beach. We love this tradition :)

Smooth from start to finish! Sunset makes it easy! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Sherry R. May 2022
This was a wonderful stay for my husband and me. We loved the very quiet location yet walkable to town and just a few blocks from easy access to the beach. But the house was amazing all on its own. Very comfortable, roomy, nicely decorated with interesting art on the walls and very clean and well maintained -- the last two very important to us in giving a great rating. We'll be back!

Dana G. Apr 2022
We enjoyed our stay at the Valentine’s house. It’s location allowed us to be close to both the beach and town. My husband and I stayed there with our adult son and found the home to be clean, roomy and comfortable. We all enjoyed the stay and hope to stay there again.

Patricia P. Feb 2022
We love the house, its' flexibility, and open space! We come back to it regularly over other choices.
The printed material in the directions for check in, check out and policies should be re-written. It's harsh, creates a negative tone, and is relatively threatening for no good reason. 5PM check in is uncommonly late, and unreasonable for the price of that night.

I am a return guest! And, I will come again!
Everything was as described and expected, very well equipped kitchen, plenty of room for families in the inviting living and dining rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms were great! Close to beach and town! A truly lovely home and location! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company

My adult daughter and I stayed in November 2021 for 2 nights. In general, we were quite pleased with the condition of the property. There is a lot of seating in the living area, the kitchen was large and well equipped (however we did not cook), the beds were comfortable, and the bathrooms were nice. A few previous reviews mentioned that the artwork was missing from the walls; however, it was there for our stay! We had a problem with a blind in one bedroom, and the property management came immediately to fix it. We were disappointed with the TV as the remote was very difficult to use and seemed broken. It had many regular channels but no streaming capabilities. Great location!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company
Kirsten A. Jul 2021
Three of us stayed here for four nights and had a lovely time. Great location! About three blocks from Leneda and a block from the beach. Location couldn't have been better. The open main part of the house was bright and welcoming. The house was clean and well kept. There are two bedrooms and only two beds in the rooms but the couch folds out. Plenty of blankets. would be ideal for two couples. There was a weird, sour smell when we first arrived but we opened all the windows and cooked a chicken and that seemed to clear it out. But it was very off-putting when we first got there. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company

Some more effort on making the space more welcoming and tasteful would go a long way. Add some personality to it. For the money paid this is not much value. Remove the Covid signatures and other covid items. Covid is over. Quit using it as an excuse. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company
Wendi R. Apr 2021
The location was great. The kitchen had all of the essential items (tools). Very roomy and relaxing. Check-in was contactless due to Covid, but very easy and convenient. We didn't need to contact property management during our stay. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company
Allison K. Apr 2021
The Valentines house exceeded our expectations. We love visiting Manzanita Beach and were happy to land on this lovely home. We visited with our family including three young children. Loved the proximity to the beach with this home, easy to pop back and forth and not feel like it’s a big outing. The space and layout of the house was very spacious and we really appreciated the how big the living room accommodated our family. The house is on a busy road but the landscaping allows for privacy. Nice deck with bbq area and peak-a-boo view was a bonus. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company
Anne S. Mar 2021
Second time staying at Valentine house, was nice to have easy access to the beach. We were surprised to see all of the artwork was removed from the wall of the rental and were disappointed. Kind of made the rental feel cold. Also some of the cookware needs to be replaced, pretty damaged and beyond useable. Otherwise it was quiet and nice to use the fireplace. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company
Rick D. Feb 2021
Second time my wife and I have stayed here in the past two months. That should say something! Been visiting Manzanita for over 30 years and this ranks with the best places we've stayed. Great location, easy beach access, blocks from downtown, close to walking trails and park. Good beds, plenty of seating, large kitchen. Flashlight was not working on first visit, which was unfortunate due to blackout which left us with no way to see in the house at night. Mentioned this to managers who corrected the problem for second visit, providing new batteries and two new rechargeable flashlights. Drinking glasses are too few in number for a place this big, but kitchen is adequately stocked with cookware, silverware, plates, mugs. Only real gripe (and it's a minor one) is the place is advertised with beautiful artwork on walls, but none of it is actually hanging up. There are only bare picture hangers and nails where the artwork once lived. Really odd. I'm assuming it's due to Covid compliance, but it's unnecessary. I run a medical office and all of the artwork there is still on the walls. Who's going to lick a piece of art? Rhetorical question, of course! Put back the artwork. Please!

Carleen W. Feb 2021
We found Valentine house to be comfortable. Kitchen has all the pots, pans, utensils, etc. you need. (No spices / No Salt & Pepper, etc. so bring your own.). Bedrooms are nice sizes with comfortable beds. Living area and kitchen are roomy. The fireplace in the living room is an extra plus. Short walk to beach (2 blocks!) and to town. I recommend staying at this property. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company
Alexandra D. Jan 2021
The location is great - a short walk to the beach and to downtown. However, it was rainy so we we're stuck inside most of the time and the place was completely empty except for some old furniture. The walls had nail holes where photos had been removed. I've stayed at other places during covid and have never seen something so extreme as removing photos. It looked nothing like the photos so I feel like we were hoodwinked. The bathrooms were great - best part of the house aside from the location. The beds have a cheap, blue foam pad on them - remove it if you have back issues. If you're able to be outside then the location is good but not sure I'd recommend other than that.

Connie W. Jul 2019
We recently stayed at Valentine's House in Manzanita. It was a perfect location, just a block off the beach and a couple blocks from the main street. The house (duplex) was roomie and comfortable. Only disappointment were the linens (towels were old enough to have holes and the sheets were scratchy), and the door to one of the bedrooms would not stay shut. Minor, but kinda important items. Anyway, worked out great for two couples!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company
Ellen B. Jun 2019
Negative: on a noisy side-street; kitchen not well supplied; beds too hard.
Positive: close to town, close to beach, very modern, clean, good parking, wonderful support staff. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Kristine S. May 2019
Close to the beach, town a comfortable walk away, accommodations clean and comfortable and a well organized floor plan created plenty of space. Privacy was not an issue if you need a quiet moment away from the crowd. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company
Sandra V. Mar 2019
My husband and I stayed there with our 2 grandchildren and it was perfect. The house was clean, beds comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked plus It had a gas grill.

Robert L. Sep 2018
We spent four nights here and enjoyed the house. It was roomier than we expected, was nicely appointed and clean. It was only a block away from the beach and we liked Manzinita because it was small, laid back and had every thing that one needs. We found a wonderful bakery on the main street that made delicious pastries both regular and gluten free. We would stay here again if we are ever in this area again.

Diana O. Aug 2018
The Valentines house is abeeyootiful House. Great large open living area, big kitchen, granite counters and fairly new appliances. Well stocked kitchen drawers, even some spices. Lots of big operable windows for letting in ocean breezes. Modest sized bedrooms, but comfy beds. Terrific bathrooms, great water pressure. There is a slight view of the ocean from those big windows, the beach is a block away. Only negatives: the corner location came with some traffic noise and there is a power pole and transformer on the corner. But you are so close to the ocean that these negatives don’t really count. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company
Nancy H. Aug 2018
Would not say duplex is “elegant” as the header suggests, nor is it “just a block to the beach”. It is more like 2 blocks if you want accuracy, but that’s no big deal to me. The house itself is a well built newer home with lots of beautiful wood and light, and has lots of room for having a family food gathering. The linens(sheets and towels) were far from elegant and need replacing. There were some cleanliness issues including some mold in the shower and greasy cabinets in the kitchen. Hopefully, these issues will be addressed. I have stayed at this house many times and will continue to visit as long as I can. It is a great location and a overall, sweet spot to stay.

Jessica J. Aug 2018
We spent four nights in Valentine's House. What a wonderful place to stay! We were a short block from the beach and could see the water from our living room. The kitchen was well appointed, the living space was large, open, and bright. The outside space was inviting and comfortable with two sitting areas with chairs and tables. We loved this property and will be back for sure! It is perfect for our family of three! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company
Carol I. Jul 2018
Great location, close to the beach and to town. It is a quiet getaway. The house itself is well lit, roomy, comfortable and clean. We walked the large sandy beach, climbed Neahkahnie, and enjoyed the Big Wave Cafe, Neahkahnie Bistro, and Wandas!

This was the best house we have stayed in so far. We come to Manzanita every year, and the Valentine's house exceeded all of our expectations. The house is bright, clean, and in a great location. We loved the deck and cute entryway. The open concept let us eat and play together. Overall, this is a wonderful place to stay, and we will be back. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company
Colleen M. Jul 2018
It was exactly what we needed. The open floorplan gave the kids the room they needed to spread out. The only problem with the whole thing was that it was just too short. Too short a time at the beach, in the house, etc. It was a great house and the peoople who live in the area were so kind. Loved it and would love to return one day.

The Valentine house left nothing to be desired. The home was lovely, within a few minutes walk to the beach. It was immaculate.

Gloria M. May 2018
We were two couples sharing this space. We all agreed it was one of the most comfortable vacation rentals we've stayed in. The light-filled, open kitchen/dining/living room area is large enough to host a party of 15. The bedrooms were pretty comfortable and very quiet when the windows are closed. Having two baths is nice too.
The place is really well maintained. The kitchen cooking equipment is in need of a good set of pots and pans, and some other serving bowls. Other than that, it's really great. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company
Minda H. Apr 2018

Sharon S. Aug 2017
We loved this house and its location. It was much larger than expected - the size of a small house instead of a typical duplex. The full baths are very nice, and the laundry room was a big perk. The location is super - very close to town and the beach. You can even see the ocean from the side porch. The outside sitting area and yard are very private and well-landscaped. We also loved all of the extra towels. It's nice that you can close off the living room from the bedroom hallway on one side. The house also gets fantastic light, and is very quiet inside at night.

The only small things we didn't like: a number of pots/pans needed to be rewashed, and the kitchen is not very well-equipped if you plan to bake. I had to buy a whisk, and the nonstick frying pans were in very poor shape. I would recommend replacing all of the frying pans and adding some basic items for people who like to bake (we were making birthday cakes), such as a whisk, a liquid measuring cup, and a sifter.

This lovely home is just 1 block from the ocean and just 3 from Laneda, so perfect! A view of the ocean is a plus, too! This home is in great condition, very liveable layout for any size or kind of group. The bbq area would be an asset too, though in the winter we didn't get to use it. Great home! Great rental!

This was my second stay here and I'm already planning a return. The house is very comfortable: cheerful, clean, great beds and showers, nice kitchen, washer/dryer, etc. The location is also good: a short walk to the beach and to amenities (cafes, shops) in Manzanita and a short ride to restaurants and galleries in Cannon Beach. Efficient, helpful staff also contributed to the pleasant experience. Highly recommend. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company

This house was perfect for my mom and I, but it would also be great for 2 couples. The layout is wonderful with the bed/bathrooms at the back and the front is a wonderful open living space with the dining/living/kitchen combined. This house is a very short walk to the beach and you can see the ocean from the beautiful picture windows. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend others to do the same!

Leone J. Jan 2016
Although the ocean view was pretty minimal, the place was only a block away from the beach and also convenient to town.

Becca K. Sep 2015
The Valentine's House is perfectly situated, just a block from the jawdropping beach (go in the evening for stunning views of the sunset) and several blocks from the main strip. Our family (two adults and an infant) found the house well-suited for our basic needs: lots of space; fully carpeted, which was great for the almost-crawler; and relaxing. The home has wonderful windows and skylights, which made the space feel airy and bright, even when we had rainy weather or in the evening. We had a few challenges with the home, mainly that the kitchen has flatewear, serving dishes, and basic cookwear, but you need to bring in EVERYTHING to cook with, even basic olive oil, salt/pepper, coffee, filters, tea, etc. Some cleaning supplies (dish liquid, laundry detergent) are provided, but things like all-purpose spray and dryer sheets weren't provided. I suggest buying all of this on your way to Manzanita, as the local stores offer very little in the way of variety and what they do offer is priced very, very high. Both bathrooms are ample, but the towels and washcloths felt rough to the touch. It would be nice if these were updated and the beds weren't so hard (even with the pillowtop mattress covers, they feel like solid rock!). Directions on where to park would be helpful, too. There are some mold stains in the shower stall, but these look to be contained.

Even with these minor inconveniences, we enjoyed the Valentine's House, and would return. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company

This was the second time we stayed here. We love this place!!! It accommodates two families very nicely with just the right amount of private vs. common area, and the price is so reasonable. The great room with living room, dining room, and spacious kitchen all in one big open room is fantastic. We also loved grilling on the patio and the short walk to beach, town, and park with our little ones. The only complaint I have is the sparse equipment in the kitchen. There are no medium sized pots, just huge or smallish. No grater, only one small knife. More baking trays would be nice. We cook the whole time and it is a little bit of a scramble to make it work sometimes. I thought about getting a few things at a thrift store to donate. I hope the owner considers adding a few items. Also note the dishwasher a couple times ran without actually running.. I think it has to do with the door not being closed all the way. It's a little tricky. Overall, the place is fabulous and we would definitely come back. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company
Lucinda B. Aug 2015
Our first time in Manzanita. Unit in perfect location! One block to beach, three to town. Whole area easily walkable -- little downtown market/deli is a gem. Nice little bookstore and several boutiques worth visiting. The rental unit was spacious, beautifully clean. Outside patio ringed with shrubs that provided nice privacy when sitting out. Good basic cooking tools. We appreciated having little details covered -- dishing washing and laundry soap, coffee filters, etc. WiFi very good. Selection of puzzles, games, videos and books a plus. Property managers friendly and helpful, provided nice binder with rental and area information. Only drawback, as others have noted, is beds are very firm. All in all, a great stay.

One aside on Manzanita: police vigilant on parking -- don't park pointing wrong way on street or outside of marked parking space lines. We saw numerous cars ticketed during our stay. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company

We rented the Valentine's House for a girls weekend and it was perfect. Open, clean and bright.

This was our second time renting this home. It's in a great area and has a peak of the ocean from the dinning area. It's nicely updated and well maintained.

Beautiful rental unit very close to the beach! This is an unusually well-built, attractive place. It is a duplex and we rented one of the 2 units. There are 2 bedrooms and 2 very nice bathrooms. The wood-burning fireplace is a nice feature on a stormy night. The village with its shops and restaurants is a short walk. I highly recommend the Valentine's House! The staff at Sunset Vacation Rentals took very good care of us. We will be back!

My friend & I go to either Manzanita or Cannon Beach every fall. This was our first experience at this rental and has been the best by far. Very close to the beach and within walking distance to town. We also discovered a new restaurant since our 2013 stay, Blackbird. It also deserves 5 stars!! This is now our go-to rental from now on.

Great location, great house, great vies, and very easy access to an awesome beach. The well-stocked kitchen makes home cooking easy. The only thing lacking was a fire pit in the backyard. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

To see the kids excitement as they unlocked the door and entered for that first time was worth the trip. 9 year old twins and they couldn't believe the place. Neither could we. Loved it. Can't wait to return. Big, open, clean, new, light, easy access to beach , town, and park. I think that says it all.

This is a wonderful home just one block from the beach. It was a clean, functional, comfortable home to stay in. I'll be returning to the Valentinr House. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company

Like the proximity to the downtown, beach, and the golf course. It has a great floor plan for a beach vacation stay. The price is very reasonable for a summertime stay. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company

I loved going to Manzanita and have for about 20 years now renting many homes from sunset This home was a perfect location, 1 block from the beach and 2 blocks from town. Reasonable rates also This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company

What an amazing place to stay! There were 3 adults and 3 kids on our trip. Everyone had plenty of room. We never felt crowded. Loved the layout so much my mom drew a picture of it to consult with a contractor to build where we live. Would definitely stay here again!!!

very clean and spacious. Loved the updated interior and all the windows. Would love to come back sometime.
Only suggestion is a pillowtop for the bed, it was a little bit too firm. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company

This large duplex was great for two families, including a teenager and three year old. We would return and all of us (except for the three year old) have told friends about staying here and staying in Manzanita.

We rented this house spur of the moment with a 9 day notice of a wedding of our son! Its perfect for two couples. We had our other son/DIL and two children, and this worked but a three bedroom would have worked better since the kids were young. My SIL also has a VBRO townhome in Scottsdale and she was also impressed with the details of this home. It was new, clean and had everything we needed. I thought the firm beds were great, but the other couple didn't. It would be nice to have mirrors in the bedrooms or a full length mirror somewhere. We were all there for a wedding and this would have helped us alot for make up and hair. I wish we couldh have stayed longer and I would definitely consider this place again. For my family, if the other one bedroom was available, it would be perfect for us for a week or long weekend. This is great floor plan and much larger then it looks in the pictures. All the windows, sky lights bring in more light, which is great at the coast. The laundry area was fabulous for putting extra food, etc. The location to the beach couldn't be better, unless you are ON the beach. The outside/yard area needs to be trimmed up and cleaned a bit. And our kids arrived late in the dark, and we couldn't see anything to walk up the sidewalk and unpack the car. The outside path lights didn't work, it was raining and we had to use our phones as flashlights to see. If there was some way to have lights outfront when you are using that 2 bedroom unit, it would be nice. We were impressed with this rental and very satisfied.

We loved staying at Valentine's house. The common spaces were very spacious allowing for children to play at the table while the adults worked in the kitchen area or read in the living room. The location was as good as it gets -- 1 block to beach, 2 blocks to city park and 2 blocks to town shops. The property was very clean and well maintained. Highly recommend.

When we walked in, we were surprised by the newness of the place - it had everything you needed, clean and bright - great location, a block to the beach and 3 from town which was perfect because it was walking distance to coffee but didn't have the traffic of main street - hope to make it my home awayf rom home - will stay again and again This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company

Beautiful, spacious house. It is actually half of a duplex, but we never heard ANYthing from the other side of the wall (shared wall is in laundry room and front hall) so it was easy to forget about the connection. Well kept, well appointed and free of seaside decor. The construction really is beautifully done and the natural light from many skylights is a true plus.

Randa G. Aug 2013
We LOVED this house. The newer construction was quite a cut above the usual somewhat dumpy beach house experience. The spaciousness and layout was perfect for two families. Beds were perfect (other reviews have complained they are too hard, but we didn't think so). Our only complaint was that the kitchen equipment was a tad skimpy on pots (nothing between medium-small and gigantic, canning size), serving bowls, and small knives (only largish steak knives).

I love this house! Great location, grreat for gatherings or just quiet time. Great kitchen for cooking too. Only downside is hard beds but I bring extra pad so ts doable. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company

The rental was beautiful inside. Spacious living room, dining room and kitchen. Living room pull-out beds increased sleeping capacity.
Short distance to beach and town - very convenient.
Everything went very smoothly

Would have loved to seen rest of house. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company

Awesome stay! My father is 83 but he able to access the beach with ease and he and my mom loved walking into town to go shopping, bakeries etc. the location is excellent, road noise was fair but it had a nice bike/walking path so a little noise is no big deal. Could still hear the ocean outside! I recommend this rental! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company

Need lids for pots and pans. One bedroom was right next to main drag though at night was pretty quiet. Great place to stay. Liked the doors separating the main living area from the bedrooms to keep sound down. Top notch construction.

This place is the opposite of beachy. It has very high quality features like tall ceilings and stone tiled bathrooms, and stone kitchen countertops. Very spacious living room with open access to kitchen - large families or two families would not feel crowded. Only con is that this is a duplex (owner occupied), and no garage acccess.

Loved the floor plan, the brightness even in rainy February, great shower, firm but not too firm beds, easy walk to the beach and town. Comfortable and clean sofa and recliners. Bring your ipod setup and you're good, a blender if that matters to you. Even had some good dvd's, books and a few games.

We had planned to watch the Holiday Bowl Thursday night with a group of people, but were very disappointmented to find there was no ESPN, a basic channel. Additionally the other channels were poor quality with fuzzy and static screens. We came with 4 kids so there was some night time frustration there.

We really enjoyed staying at the Valentine's House this past weekend. The house was really spacious and comfortable. My 2 year old daughter had plenty of room to play and run around, which was great considering it rained during most of our visit. I especially loved the location. It is so close to town, the beach and the playground--perfect for a family with young children. I was happy to see the house wasn't overly decorated with knick-knacks so I didn't have to worry about my daughter touching things that she shouldn't play with. I only wish the house had a more modern stereo that would allow for ipod connection and WiFi. My husband works for himself and had some unexpected work he need to do for a client while we were away from home. Oh, and a more modern toaster! It was too narrow to toast bagels, so I had to do it the old-fashioned way, using the broiler in the oven. I burned a couple of bagels beyond recognition before I got the timing right. Bring your own tupperware and saran wrap if you plan on cooking and end up with left overs. Other than that, the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, dishes, pots and pans.

Great house with really bad beds to sleep on, you might want to take a look at that, we left with sore backs and scratching our head because its such a nice home, they spent alot of money on the house but they need to spend $500 more and get a couple of good beds...fyi This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company

Our family was delighted with our stay at Valentine's House. We had our grandchildren for a few days, and when they left with their mother to a property in Pacific City, they complained that they wanted to come back, our house was way better!! And it had the perfect kitchen/living room for entertaining our other relatives that were staying down the street. All of us could comfortable have dinner and hang out at our house!

There was a recliner that the back was broken on when we got there, also one sauce pan had been bading burnt. Other than those two things everything was in great working order. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company
Quinn B. Aug 2009
Valentine's house was almost perfect--very new and clean, close to the beach, open floor plan, beautiful kitchen and living/dining area. The only downside was that we had to cross a pretty busy street to get to the beach, which was stressful with little kids. Overall we were very happy with the house.

To whom it may concern;

Pros; We had a great time, close to the beach, close to shopping, very little traffic on the road. Place was neat and clean, looked as if it was recently updated. Wonderfully quiet. We may come stay again.

Cons; The beds were extra, extra firm. While we were told to supply our own food and toilet paper, understandable, the need to purchase basic sundries (sugar, shampoo) was a bit of a surprise. While we are neat, the requirement to do laundry was one of the things we wanted to get away from. The TV was a little awkward to watch from the eastern couch and when my 7 year old reviewed the complimentary movies, she asked me what NC-17 meant as she had never seen that rating before. Next time we may stay at a hotel as they do their own laundry and clean up after us and have a complimentary breakfast.

Next vacation, our family will discuss the option and decide where to stay. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company

The only thing I would change is the utensils in the kitchen. We love to cook and while the kitchen had a great layout and had state of the art appliances the kitchen gadgets were lacking. Don't get me wrong we had all of the basics but it is fun to have the other non essentials at your command.

The weekend stay was outstanding. The location is great. Very close to the beach and close to town. You can walk everywhere. The only problem with the house is the TV is very small. Outside of that it is a great house in a great location and very nicely appointed. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company
Marti F. May 2009
This is a really well-designed house with lots of green features - although management doesn't advertise it that way. However, and this is a big BUT, the TV is small and TERRIBLE. Since a lot of what we do on evenings at the beach is watch movies, we won't stay again until it's upgraded to something made this century!
