Long Beach house description

Enjoy the beach at Avalon! This home is a wonderful location for summer fun – kite flying, a beach picnic and campfire, or sunset strolls. In the winter, this cozy retreat is a great getaway to watch winter storms from the living room or enjoy clamming in season. Watch wildlife from the living room too! Avalon has its own private trail to the beach. Or take a short drive into Long Beach for restaurants, shopping and other entertainment.

Avalon sleeps a maximum of 8 people total. The first floor has the living and dining rooms, with new larger picture windows with that great ocean view. There’s cable TV and a DVD and VCR for the evening’s entertainment plus wireless internet and stereo CD/tape player too. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher and microwave. There’s a full bath with tub shower also on the first floor, along with one bedroom with a queen bed. Upstairs is a half bath and mix of sleeping areas: an area at the top of the stairs with 1 twin bed and a twin trundle bed, a pass-through area with a TV and a twin bed and a semi-private alcove with a double bed. For your comfort, smoking is not allowed at Avalon. Your canine friend is welcome for an inexpensive pet fee ($15/pet plus tax, no more than 2 pets, please). He’s welcome to roam at the beach but should be kept on leash at the house.

There’s even more to explore on the Long Beach Peninsula – all 26 plus miles of it. Great shopping and a variety of restaurants are a short drive away, plus lots of things for the kids to do. Long Beach is about 5 miles to the south. The Bolstad beach approach is a hub of activity year-round, but especially during the summer months, with the International Kite Festival in August and of course fireworks on Independence Day and New Year’s Eve. There’s miniature golf, the arcade and carnival rides are nearby.

Just a couple miles south of Long Beach are Ilwaco and Cape Disappointment as well as Waikiki Beach and the North Head lighthouse. There are some great art galleries at the Port of Ilwaco, and during the summer months there’s Saturday Market too, with a variety of local arts and crafts, foods, flowers and plants for sale. You can even see pirates at times. Ilwaco also has its own fireworks in July. The Port also features some fine restaurants with local seafood offerings created by our great chefs. Or take a charter trip for salmon, halibut, tuna or sturgeon.

If you drive north from the house to Ocean Park there are bookstores, restaurants and gift stores and more beaches to explore. Visit Jack’s Country Store to see this historic yet current meeting place. In Nahcotta you can buy fresh oysters and enjoy the wonderful views of Willapa Bay. On the extreme north end of the Peninsula, the place to see is Ledbetter Point State Park -- it’s a wonderful place for hiking to the beach or to the bay. There’s lots of wildlife to see in our local parks. Keep your eyes open for bald eagles – we see many of them here.

A sunny location with nothing but the dunes between you and the beach – that’s the beauty of the Avalon.

                    The location was very private and a lovely walk to the beach. Away from the crowd with a short drive to town.

                    I came with a group of seven people to dig for razor clams. The location was excellent for this purpose (maybe 150 yards from the beach and easily walkable). There were plenty of beds, and the house had a good layout for a group of friends. The kitchen is well equipped. The views are nice though the big windows. On the negative side, it's a little hard to find. There is a nearby RV park, but nobody was in it during my stay, and it's somewhat blocked by trees. Some people were bothered a little by allergies, but it wasn't anything out of the ordinary for a pet-friendly place. The sofas/chairs could use some updating but were still comfortable. The house does use well water, but we brought our own water for drinking anyway. All things considered, Avalon is a pretty good place.

                    Recommended for: Pet owners, adventure seekers, families with young children, sightseeing, families with teenagers.

                    I would like to preface my review with the fact that I am an experienced VRBO user and rent homes at least 2 to 3 times a year in places ranging from Oregon to California, Utah, Maui, Washington and France. I have seen a wide range of accommodations and have never been this disappointed. Not only was the furniture and decor out of date, it was of poor quality, questionably clean, the kitchen dishes and utensils were laughable and the view was hidden by dirty windows or windows that didn't work and were taped shut. Also, the "curtains" in the upstairs sleeping quarter either didn't work or were nonexistent. In order to remedy this problem we had to use a blanket from the downstairs couch and drape it over a curtain rod. I personally checked my sheets before getting into bed to make sure that they were clean because it was not obvious if they were or not. The carpet downstairs was a place of hidden treasures, both for the dogs to eat and for people's feet (I would recommend never taking your shoes off) and one of the couches (the green one seen in the picture) must have been home to several cats because it made everyone's allergies flair as soon as it was sat on. It's possible that the water pipes or water well are going bad because the water had a distinct sewer smell every time the faucet was turned on. Also, the shower didn't drain so one would have to stand on one foot while showering in order to use the other foot to hold up the drain so that the tub wouldn't fill up with the sewer smelling water. Finally the location of the rental. The home is literally in an RV park. Luckily the RV park was closed for the winter and wasn't full of RVs but if it had been, the space would have felt very crowded. The only saving grace (and reason why we didn't find other accommodations) was because the private pathway to the dunes and beach was very nice. The home is far enough out of Long Beach that there weren't many people on that section of the beach and it was very peaceful - a nice reprieve from the house. Had the RV park been full, this would have been a very different scenario. Overall, our approach to dealing with the unfortunate situation was to spend as little time as possible in the home. I believe this ad is misleading and that the home would be better marketed to frat boys who want to spend a weekend playing beer pong verses civilized people who like clean, average standard of living places to stay.

                    Manager response: We’re sorry that this guest found the home unsatisfactory, but for more than ten years many other visitors have found this home very comfortable and perfectly acceptable. The photos represent our home for what it is – a quaint cabin at the beach, similar to a grandparents home which is not necessarily up-to-date but casual and relaxing. This home is in a rural area north of the city of Long Beach, so it has a well for water. We relocated the well recently and have been happy with the water quality. Many people notice a difference from city water, but it’s not unsafe or unpalatable. Pets are welcome in our home, and this guest would have known this in advance since they brought pets of their own. We regret that this guest wasn’t satisfied with the appearance of the house. It’s unfortunate that they didn’t contact the management immediately to let them know about their concerns. We would have happily offered them alternative accommodations or a rate adjustment, but this guest came and went without a word to us.
