"This is a fabulous location for a summer rental. The home is laid out nicely. A large welcoming family/dining/TV area on the first floor, and a plenty adequate kitchen. We did have 8 people, including 3 children, and there was plenty of room. We cooked every night! The beach access was incredibly convenient, the path only steps from the house. The patio and back yard, which was fenced in, were wonderful for the children and their dog. We thoroughly enjoyed using the BBQ.
The only thing anyone complained about was that the mattresses and pillows were not very comfortable. The mattresses were hard, as were the pillows. I would recommend bringing your own pillows. Also the dining room chairs were directors chairs, one of which was broken when we arrived, and tough for the kids to sit on. But overall, the home was really charming. We spent a great week there and had beautiful weather."

"This house was perfect for our family vacation. It was a short walk to the beach and we saw some beautiful sunsets. It was comfortable for kids and dogs, and felt very private. The owner was so helpful and welcoming. It was a great location to explore beautiful spots near Seaside and Cannon Beach.
The only small drawback to the location were the cars on the beach (challenging with two small children). But overall we really enjoyed this spot!"

"9 of us stayed at Second Wind and it was just wonderful! The home is so well-kept. Everything is nice and neat, inside and out, beautifully decorated, and we had everything we could possibly need and more. It really felt like home with many personal touches and fun collections in the house. I loved that the kitchen was well-stocked with nice quality stainless steel pans and cast iron cookware. That's what I use at home and so often when we've rented a place the cookware is old, scratched-up, non-stick cookware that I don't feel is healthy to use. The house is big enough that there was plenty of room for all of us - many places to sit and space for having your own space if you want it.
The sleepy, quiet town was just what we like and it is a short drive, about 5 minutes, to Seaside where you can go if you want an area with more activity. But we liked the quiet and restful atmosphere, and the quiet and private beach with no crowds! One day while walking through the grassy dunes to the beach, we saw a herd of 40-50 elk - that was awesome!
The little corner market was a great little store to walk to when we needed to pick up a few groceries and the local bakery was very nice for some morning treats. The bakery has limited hours so be sure to check that if you want to go.
Also, it was great to bring our dog along. The owners make pets very welcome and that made our trip very special to have our doggie with us. They even have a line in place outside so we could just hook it right to our dog's harness and she could have freedom to roam the yard and be safe.
We all loved the bench swing in the back and the warm outdoor shower to rinse off with before coming inside. We had planned to use the bikes that are offered, and we brought our helmets, but never got around to that, but that is a wonderful thing that the owners offer as well.
It was perfect and we hope we get the opportunity to come back some day. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! What a lovely place!"

Perfect home away from home for any time of the year
"This home is comfortably elegant and furnished with taste and warmth. The home owners welcomed us with a hand written note, a decorated Christmas tree and wine & bubbly. Every room was well equipped, perfect for a family of ten - twelve (give or take an extra little one or two) with comfortable beds, crisp linens, warm blankets and perfect pillows. The kitchen had more than enough tools to prepare a Christmas dinner and cookies for Santa. Electronics were easy to control and plentiful. The views were phenomenal. To watch the day begin on the second floor living room was a genuine treat. I can only imagine that this home is even more wonderful in the summer months. The home is well built and sound insulated so that even the sneakiest tots had an easy time getting past a snoozing nana and papa - but not for long. Everything about this home was perfect. We appreciate the opportunity that the owners gave us in extending our stay by an additional day. Grounds and golf course were superb! Well maintained and Mr. Brown at the Pro Shop is our favorite guy. The rental management team was beyond compare. So very easy to contact and willing to discuss any concerns or questions we had. And more than willing to accommodate our needs when refrigeration posed a very slight problem. I can only say thank you for this wonderful opportunity. Great folks!"
