"The two of us rented this home for 10 days in July 2014, and what a pleasant stay it turned out to be. We had never been to Ocean Park and were not familiar with its neighborhoods, but it was where we wanted to spend time away from the hot summer in eastern Washington. So we had to rely on the VRBO listing for information about this house, which we found to be accurate and helpful. The owners were quite responsive to our e-mail queries and a phone call, which facilitated our choosing this house.
The first thing we noticed about the house was the neighborhood - lush and green, tall trees, widely spaced homes, and Q-U-I-E-T! Really, we were often surprised by - and certainly thankful for - the peace and quiet in this area.
We particularly appreciated the dog-friendly terms of the rental, as we were including our two Shelties in our vacation plans. The dogs proved to be as happy and low-maintenance as usual, and we all enjoyed the large yard (not fenced) as well as the quiet streets for taking long walks.
And we took lots of walks. Downtown Ocean Park is an easy and pleasant mile, with the library right on the way, where wi-fi Internet is available. We had our bicycles, too, and made several excursions to pick blueberries, tour Oysterville and Leadbetter state park, and along the Discovery Trail in Long Beach. The mild weather was perfect for these outings. This house has a covered back porch and a garage that were perfect for storing bicycles and various gear.
All in all, we found the house clean, comfortable, and appropriate for a vacation rental, and the rate seemed reasonable and appropriate for the size and style of the house. The kitchen was well-equipped, we used the washer and dryer several times, and we especially loved not having cable or satellite TV - it was a vacation! Recommended."
