We were here in July for a 4 day stay. The property was exceptionally well maintained and oh so comfortable!! It was furnished with everything and anything you could possibly need and only minutes from the beach/dunes/restaurants. We will most assuredly be back - next time with quads in tow :) Thank you so much for the hospitality !

Nice house, but uninviting/unwelcome

  • 3 of 5

This house is well located for sight-seeing. We visited Cape Perpetua to see Thor's Well, Heceta and Upqua lighthouses, and Oregon Nation Dunes. We walked along several beaches and saw many seals, but my favorite stop was Dean Creek elk viewing area.

We were only in town for two nights, so this house met our needs because all we really wanted was a clean bed to sleep in. The owner was so over the top with rules that I was uncomfortable being there. I was afraid to touch anything or walk on the carpet. It reminded me of my grandmother's house where she had a room with white carpet and a blue velvet couch (covered in plastic) with a rope across the doorway. It was kept so nice because you weren't allowed to use it - it was only meant to be viewed. I resented the rules about stealing and detailed inventory - implied that I was going to take her things. I've stayed at many VRBO rentals, but I've never before felt uncomfortable or unwelcome.

The house was nice and it was well appointed, but I would not return nor would I recommend it to anyone who was intending to spend time actually at the house.

Owner's Response: Matthew, we sorry you found our home uncomfortable. We strive to make sure everyone enjoys their stay and is comfortable, I even tell our guests to put their feet up and make theirselves at home. We do have a list of house rules that can be downloaded when a guest books our home. We do inventory after a guest leaves to ensure everything is available to the next guests. We know it is so easy to pick up Windy Bay Getaway items that look familiar to your own. We want to maintain a comfortable, quality environment for others to enjoy. We enjoyed meeting you, your wife and your sisters and would welcome you to stay anytime, if not our house, maybe one of the other wonderful places in the area. Again, we are very sorry having a list of house rules made you uncomfortable. Best regards, Cindy and Greg

A real gem!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, comfortable, and well appointed accommodations, at the epicenter of beautiful Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Very tastefully decorated throughout, with all you need for a comfortable stay. Found it was not easy to pull yourself off the comfy couch. Would definitely stay again!
