This was a decent vacation place. Noise travels from upstairs into the bunk room, and there were a couple times the wind oriented just right to make a really annoying high-pitched sound come from the ceiling about four feet east of the the ceiling fan for a an hour or so - thought we might have to run away. But it went away. Nothing is high end, but the place functions as we expected, and the rental company was very responsive to our needs and professional. Would be nice to have more places to hang coats, especially in days of driving rain. Also it was strange to have no basics like cooking oil - a COVID provision, I`m sure, but one that could fade away given the state of the science on how COVID is transmitted.

We come every year and always have the best time. Highly recommend. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Patricia P. Feb 2022
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!!!

Daria O. Jan 2022
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.
Sydnee W. Dec 2021
This house is amazing! It has what you need for a relaxing weekend. The beach is steps away and the views from the living room are fantastic. I would recommend new bedding for the beds and a comfier sofa in the living room. Other than that A+. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Cheryl T. Nov 2021
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.
Kirsten A. Jul 2021
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!

wireless would be good. and the only way the location could be better is if it were on the beach :) This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Andrej S. Jun 2021
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.
Wendi R. Apr 2021
Great house for the whole family. Incredible views of Twin Rocks. Sunsets where spectacular. Super easy beach access. Would rent again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Allison K. Apr 2021
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 review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Wonderful stay at Valentine`s House: cheerful, comfortable, great location and condition, perfect. We`ll be back. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Rick D. Feb 2021
Overall a great location and stay right on the beach! The open floor plan and view are amazing for a small group to enjoy the Oregon coast and it’s beauty. Only negative to note is the key pick-up from the rental company was 20 minutes away. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Carleen W. Feb 2021
Great weather. Valentines is within walking distance of everything which is nice. Manzanita is perfect for relaxing. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Alexandra D. Jan 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.
Darla H. Oct 2020
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. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Erin S. Oct 2020
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 review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Harmony P. Jul 2020
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.
Kathy J. Jul 2020
Valentine House is a beautiful place for a getaway. The home is spacious and comfortable.The location, one block from the beach, is great. We were very happy with everything except would recommend foam toppers on the sofa beds and a few more pots in the kitchen. (Another fry pan and a large kettle) This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Cam D. Mar 2020
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.
Patricia P. Dec 2019
Excellent location and beautiful, clean modern house. Exceeded expectations. HOWEVERt the pull out couch mattresses were very uncomfortable. So bring an air mattress with you, then the house will accommodate up to 8 comfortably. There was an air mattress and pump provided but it was not working-the valve cover was missing. When we told the property staff we were told that nothing could be done.
Otherwise everything was lovely. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Christine R. Dec 2019
Great place. One block from access to the beach. No adjoining bathroom/bedroom, but two small bedrooms and two baths work well for a smaller group. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Anne S. Aug 2019
House & location were excellent, both the beds were very hard and may not stay there again due to the beds. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Connie W. Jul 2019
It was perfect. We will return :) 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
Valentine`s House is a large, bright airy place a block from the beach. The kitchen is very well equipped. There are good restaurants within walking distance (or a short drive). Manzanita`s beach is lovely. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Sandra V. Mar 2019
Our family vacations every Summer at a beach and this ear`s choice was the BEST!! The home was a perfect size for us. The VIEW was spectacular, one of the best we`ve ever had in any place we have stayed! The walk to the beach was very short and private. And the beach was so clean!! The home was clean, well stocked (even though Covid didn`t allow all things). We were very cozy and comfortable. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Brooke B. Jan 2019
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. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Marti F. Oct 2018
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. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Linda G. Oct 2018
The place was immaculate, well located, and much larger than we were expecting. We will definitely stay here again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Dave S. Sep 2018
Excellent property with space, light, and privacy. A great place for two couples. Near the beach and near businesses. We definitely plan to return to the Valentine House in Manzanita. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Robert L. Sep 2018
The home is perfectly located on the beach and close to town. It was a short walk to the beach (<1 minute) and the upstairs had a wonderful view of the ocean. Our only recommendations for improvement would be a larger master bedroom bed and updated mattress in the secondary bedroom. Otherwise, we thought the place was excellent and would return. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Alice L. Aug 2018
This house was in a great location - close to Laneda ST AND ~1 block from the beach. The house seemed new, bright, quiet, and roomy. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Diana O. Aug 2018
Our third year in a row to stay at the Valentine House. We love this house for an extended family weekend. Spotless, open living area, easy walk to beach and close to town. Nice big table for family meals, games or puzzles. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Nancy H. Aug 2018
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 review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Jessica J. Aug 2018
Over all great, one issue is that the trash cans were very small and we were there a week so we filled it up. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Carol I. Jul 2018
We really enjoyed the Valentine Home...pictures don`t do it justice. like the layout of kitchen and living/dining area. Home is near beach and walking to downtown shops... This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Sabine E. Jul 2018
Make sure you are coming from the north when renting this place, otherwise you have to drive up to Manzanita to get the keys (adds another hour round trip). Also, best to arrive in the daylight as you can`t see the house number at night. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Colleen M. Jul 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.
Harmony P. Jul 2018
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.
Cherie G. Jun 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.
Kathy G. May 2018
So relaxing....Open floor plan, comfortable bedrooms. Very lovely quality house. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Gloria M. May 2018
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.
Minda H. Apr 2018
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.
Elizabeth B. Mar 2018
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. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Brooke B. Jan 2018
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. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Sharon R. Oct 2017
Great clean place to stay. View is incredible. Very short walk to a great beach. Not as crowded as other beaches. House has a very open layout and great for large group. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Bob L. Sep 2017
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. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Sharon S. Aug 2017
What a wonderful home on the beach. Perfect for a family trip and relaxing time to enjoy the waves and ocean front air. Loved every minute of it. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Great trip and location was amazing! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Matt O. Jul 2017
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. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Kathy G. Jun 2017
This house has a great open floor plan, good beds, very clean, close to the beach and town. Only problem for us was lack of good lighting for reading and sewing. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We`ve stayed in this wonderful home many times. It`s a perfect location and is well appointed. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Beautiful place. Alot bigger than it looks. Clean, spacious, close to beach and city park for kids. Just loved our stay. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Pam B. Oct 2016
Wonderful house--clean, well-stocked and organized, lots of natural light. We had 2 families of 3 staying here and it fit us perfectly. Super location--quick walk to the beach or downtown. We will definitely come back! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Catherine D. Oct 2016
Perfect - clean and as advertised. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Jonathan P. Oct 2016
Although the `ocean view` was pretty minimal, the place was only a block away from the beach and also convenient to town. We had had a bad experience with another rental in Manzanita--it was very musty--so this one was a great change. It was very clean, nicely decorated, definitely not musty. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Deb S. Oct 2016
We rented the Valentine`s House for a girls weekend and it was perfect. Open, clean and bright. It is one block from the ocean and about 3 blocks to town, there is really no reason to drive once you arrive. We LOVED it and will be renting again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Claire T. Aug 2016
Great house for a girl`s weekend especially with my elderly mother who has accessibility issues. Only a block from the beach and two blocks to town. Very clean, nice big windows and good beds. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The Valentine house left nothing to be desired. The home was lovely, within a few minutes walk to the beach. It was immaculate. My husband and daughter had plenty of space and enjoyed cooking in the beautiful kitchen. The natural lighting provided by the skylights was amazing.

The house was great and we had a great time until the tornado came! But, the house withstood winds upwards of 120 mph and we`re alive to tell the story! A very memorable birthday for me!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Sarah A. Apr 2016
We loved the house - wonderful location and proximity to the beach and several quaint towns. As other reviewers have commented, the couch was awfully hard/uncomfortable, but other amenities, etc else made up for that. :-) Oh, the bunk bed room was tiny and really needs some sort of ladder access, but again we loved our stay - it was perfect for our large family group. Thanks! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Leone J. Jan 2016
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. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Darla H. Nov 2015
Lovely, small house near to downtown Manzinita. The electronics (stereo) and grill needed updating, but the charm and location more than made up for it. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Kurt B. Nov 2015
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.

Twin Rocks Haven is a beautiful home! The location couldn`t be better...just steps away from the sand, and the views are gorgeous. This home is perfect for a large family, or large family + grandma and grandpa. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Becca K. Sep 2015
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.
Randa G. Sep 2015
Clean, bright, close to the beach and within walking distance of `downtown` Manzanita. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Lucinda B. Aug 2015
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. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Carley S. Aug 2015
This is a beautiful home as evidenced by the attention to detail. It is very comfortable and a perfect location. We loved the one block walk to the beach and the two block walk into town. The kitchen had everything we needed with the exception of groceries. ?? This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Nicholas S. Jul 2015
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! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Ingrid V. Jun 2015
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.
Kate L. Jun 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.
Marti F. Apr 2015
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.

All 4 of us loved this home! Roomy, very clean. Walked to town every day. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Mary annette H. Oct 2014
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. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Marti F. Oct 2014
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.

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.

Suzanne T. Sep 2014
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.

We have stayed at this property several times and have had a great experience each time. Good location close to the beach and a well appointed interior. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

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. It was only about a block from the beach about 3 short blocks from town. We walked everywhere. We loved it and look forward to staying there again!

Great location right in front of Twin Rocks. Very helpful staff regarding getting access to keys. Couch upstairs very hard and uncomfortable. Very nice balcony and easy quick beach access. Kitchen upstairs so be ready to lug heavy food coolers up there. Property very clean; but kitchen could be better stocked with utensils. Nice quiet neighborhood.

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.

Overall it was a great experience. A few issues were that neither sliding door locked. They relied on sticks in door for lock. Also never figured out how to turn on showers. My fault for not calling management co. 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!

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.

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!

We LOVED our stay and loved the house. It was so bright and light and clean. Perfect for two couples. Block to the beach. Two blocks to town. It was the best. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

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.

Roberta D. Sep 2013
Lots of space, great views, clean quarters, and fully function fireplace to keep us toasty on chilly nights. Great view of Twin Rocks. Pirate`s Cove restaurant down the way was fantastic. We ordered take-out from them every night. Beds were very comfortable. Internet had bandwidth to support three laptops and two iPads. Only downsides: TV in basement wasn`t fully functioning and didn`t offer much to do down there. Couch upstairs is VERY uncomfortable and shabby. The cushions slide around all the time and you can feel the wood support bars underneat you at all times. But, that was the only downside. Kitchen fully equipped and appliances were great. We would stay there again if the couch was replaced with something more comfortable. Thank you! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

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.

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.

This home has very comfortable beds,which is always a priority for us! We were pleasantly surprised overall with this home. It was just so nice. Short walk to the beach, where we enjoyed a great fire and saw the Space Shuttle and the Aurora Borealis!!
The managers did a great job all around. We will definitely return . This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The Valentines House is a very clean and very good maintained house. Even if you have some days with rain all day long you can enjoy the nice spacy living room with all the games and jigsaw puzzles provided.

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.

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!

Claire B. Aug 2011
The location of the rental was excellent, close to downtown and the beach on a fairly quiet street. House was bright, clean and spacious and could easily accommodate two couples. The only suggestion I have is that the kitchen could be better outfitted, while the appliances are fine, not great selection of pans or knives and very little in the way of barware, serving dishes and table linens. Otherwise a great rental! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

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.

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!

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.
Wendy H. Sep 2010
Loved the view and proximity to the beach. The house is great for a family to enjoy their time at Rockaway. Our first time here and you can easily walk to town as well and up and down the beach.
The home had everything we could ask for and was quite roomy. My only suggestions would be some new frying pans (cast iron?) and replace the couch with a sectional that you can sink into in order to enjoy the sunset. We will be back!

Our stay at Valentine`s house was delightful for my family. We walked into a modern, clean, well-furnished, and spacious home. Everything worked and worked well.

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.
Anna M. Aug 2010
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.

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 house worked great for us. It was in an excellent location with a beautiful view. It had everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable. The sectional upstairs was good but not too comfy (it`s an inside/outside sofa which I totally understand why they would use this for a rental). Note, the listing states there will be salt and oil at the house but there was not (just shop accordingly).

The house was great, lots of space for entertaining. The house is in the perfect location: 5 min walks to park and main drag, and 2 mins to the beach. Loved this place, would book again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Marti F. May 2009
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).
