Oceanfront Cottage, Manzanita Oregon

Sometimes when you read reviews, or read a description of a property you get all excited but then are disappointed once you get there, or at least by the time you leave. However this was not the case!!! The property was everything as described, the location was perfect, the ambience perfect, the house was clean, well stocked, heck we did not want to leave. Its one of those situations where you are almost cautious to write a good review because in a selfish way you don’t want it fully booked up that you never get another chance to visit, we’ll have to take that risk, and plan to be back!!!” — MJB (Portland OR)

“This rental is by far the best we have found in Manzanita Oregon. The house is quant, with a beautiful oceanfront view from every room. it has everything you need. The property is huge – great for kids and adults. we loved walking on the beach, having a fire in the outside fire pit, and watching movies inside at night next to the fire. Such a perfect place. this place will be hard to beat. Thanks for having us! — Rylaughing (Portland OR)

“Stellar experience throughout the entire booking process and 4 day stay at this wonderful Manzanita property! We received confirmation and detailed e-mail instructions prior to our arrival and all considerations were made to have everything stocked and ready for us. I was very impressed with how easy they made it feel like home. The property has a gorgeous deck, plenty of green grass and is approximately 25 ft from the sand. It is also located toward the most northern end of the beach, so it is in a less busy section. The fire pit and deck chairs provided are an exceptional added bonus during the fair weather months. The bed was very comfortable as was all the furniture. Exceptionally clean. This house has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, but is suitable for a single couple who wants ample space but could easily accommodate two couples and several children in the room with bunk beds. We simply closed off the other bedrooms and just enjoyed having a nice big kitchen and dining space all to ourselves. The sliding door to the back yard was great for letting the dog in and out. This pet-friendly property is a great find and Manzanita Beach and the town are extremely pet-friendly as well. Each day we walked 2-3 down the beach into the little town and back. It’s one of the nicest beaches on the Oregon Coast, a little more laid back and less crowded than Cannon Beach, and this property is absolutely perfect and highly recommended! –Alex (Seattle WA)

Oceanside Modern Cabin, Manzanita Oregon

Our one week stay exceeded our expectations. The house is beautifully decorated, open and spacious with vaulted ceilings, comfortable, and situated right on the beach, so the view is amazing. There are few spots in Manzanita better than this one. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds are very comfortable, clean, and perfect for families with kids, a weekend getaway, a girl’s weekend, or time with friends. The front porch, family room, and the kitchen all overlook the beach and waves. This house is first class; a great getaway in the great location. All in all, easily a five-star property, and it was great to work with the owner who is communicative and very friendly. Hoping to return next year–thanks again for a great stay!” — Amy (Seattle, WA)

This was our second year in a row; we plan for many more. The location is ideal, just off the beach and within walking distance of downtown. Downtown is lovely, with a good vibe and an incredible Farmer’s Market on Friday evenings. The home is very comfortable and well maintained. One small issue with the washer was promptly addressed (and our own fault after all!). Highly recommended.” — Libby (Vancouver, BC)

Our 2 families very much enjoyed this cozy beachside cottage. Superb location right on a lovely stretch of the beach and ocean views enjoyed from the living room and kitchen / eating area. well appointed, fully stocked and nicely decorated. The kids loved the bunk beds, beach toys and downstairs tv area. We appreciated the outdoor furniture for lazy afternoons, wood-burning fireplace for ambiance and heated bathrooms floors.” — Gina (Portland, OR)

Historic Reed House, Manzanita Oregon

I had the pleasure of staying at the Historic Reed House earlier this month and I instantly fell in love with it. This incredible house is spacious, comfortable, offers many fabulous features, and has the perfect mixture of character and charm everywhere you look. The outside deck and its ocean views are simply breathtaking. The four different seating areas on the 2nd level, along with the kitchen and dining room, was quite impressive. Whether you were sitting with friends and enjoying conversation, playing a game of cards, reading a good novel, or taking that much needed nap, this large room was perfect and very cozy. At the beginning of our stay we had 19 people. Everyone was accommodated with rooms and I should mention the beds are the most comfortable beds I’ve ever slept in. More impressively, to me, was that the dining room table held all 19 of us at once. It is a beautifully, long, gorgeous table that allowed us to all sit together for dinner and create wonderful lasting memories… and with the TWO dishwashers and extra-large sink, the kids cleared the table and clean up happened in a blink of an eye. I’m sure you have read what this house has to offer; however, I’d like to restate a few features that still stand out to me: 1. While this house is extremely large and spacious, the lay out is top notch. 2. The beds are top quality and I can assure you that a goodnight sleep a waits. 3. There are bathrooms on all levels of this home making them very accessible. 4. The pool table, ping-pong table, and TV were very popular 5. The kitchen and upgraded appliances made entertaining many guests…FUN. I can honestly tell you that my stay in this house was AMAZING. Yes I was in great company, but more than that, this beautifully remodeled house blends character and charm, creating a warm comfortable atmosphere that can accommodate MANY MANY guests. That’s an incredible feat! I can honestly say the Historic Reed House is something special and it is a beach house one could return to again and again!!!” — Megan (San Francisco CA)

We (a multigenerational group – ranging in age from 2 to 80) all had a most spectacular weekend. The house looked superb on the website and it more than surpassed the beautiful photos we saw ahead of time. The home is large enough that our party of 20 with little ones, teenagers, and grandparents were all able to come together, and also go find our own quiet and alone times. The kitchen was stocked superbly to serve our entire group, including the two pancake grittles. We sang, we played, we boogie boarded, we cooked, we told stories and we all left feeling filled up on life. Thanks for your beautiful home!” — Michelle (Portland, OR)

Just as we planned, our vacation at the Historic Reed House was amazing!! Our family was there last summer, and we knew we had to go again! The accommodations could not have been better. The ocean view was breathtaking from the numerous windows on all levels, as well as the huge wrap around deck! The four sitting areas on the main floor were ideal for playing games, reading a book, or taking a cozy nap. The massive fireplace was a great backdrop for family pictures or simply for warmth and atmosphere. The beautiful table in the dining area that easily seated all 19 of us was perfect! The owners have thought of everything, from double sinks and two dishwashers in the kitchen, plus enough counter space for people to work together efficiently. We loved that there were more than enough dishes for everyone, cooking utensils, and pots and pans for a gourmet cook. The 7 bedrooms and 5 beautifully tiled unique bathrooms could not have been better! The lower level is truly a haven for kids and adults alike! The pool table, ping-pong table, and large TV room were all favorites. Access to the beach was the best! We were right there! The entire house has a clean, classy, vintage style, which instantly makes you smile and feel at home. The website pictures truly do tell the story…It is AWESOME!!!!” — Mimi (Citrus Heights, CA)
