ABOUT TOBY'S CRAB SHACK:

Tobys Crab Shack is a little piece of heaven right on the ocean in Brookings, Oregon - the banana belt of Oregon due to the unusually nice weather compared to the rest of the coast. Please note the icon on the map view is incorrect. Tobys is actually 2 miles north of Harris Beach and sits on a bluff right over the ocean at Rainbow Rock.

Stand in the living room, dining room, kitchen or balcony and have a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean and beachfront. Great views of fishing boats, whales, sea lions and waves smashing against the big rocks are just some of the things you can experience right from your comfortable chair in the Condo. Walk out the door and down a short winding, path full of beautiful plants, bushes and trees and you are on a fabulous, secluded beach with tide pools and walk through cave.

Toby's is clean, neat and tastefully furnished with comfortable furnishings in a subtle and calming color palette. The entire condo was updated in the spring of 2011.

Settle in with the comforts of home at this condo in a peaceful, gated complex. Toby's is at the very end of the complex which creates a quiet setting and an unobstructed view to the south and west, both facing the ocean.

Brookings is a quaint town right on the ocean in southern Oregon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Did I die and go to HEAVEN?! My visit here has been spectacular. The view is unbelievably gorgeous - sunny, overcast or rainy. The sound of that incredible ocean is sooo peaceful. Not to mention this perfect condo. I did not want for anything. It was more than home away from home comfort wise. Thank you for much needed respite in the perfect place.

Great place and a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The condo is roomy, well-stocked and very clean. Great views from the windows in the living room. We never turned the TV on because the view was so interesting and always changing. We have friends in the area and they loved it too! Can't go wrong.

ALMOST AS ADVERTISED

  • 3 of 5

There was a lot to like about the condo. The furnishings were very comfortable and the kitchen was laid out well. The view from the main room, dining room, and kitchen was outstanding. The porch was small, but comfortable and offered cool breezes. Since no one was next door, it was private. However, if we had neighbors it would have felt uncomfortable.

The master bedroom view was not as advertised unless you bent your neck. Still, the bed was comfy (although a bit tall) and it was cool to have the T.V. in there. And thanks for having hangers in the walk-in closet! The big shower was nice, but the water pressure was too low to adequately rinse. Having a hand-held extension would have been helpful. The only soap available was the hand-pump next to the sink, so into the shower it went. You did say that enough soap would be available for starters, I just expected something different. Not a big deal.

You did advertise that a phone was available -- it was not! I could see the jack where it used to exist. We were counting on that phone so our parents could call and work could reach us in an emergency, and had told them we'd share the number on arrival. That was a BIG DEAL.

Luckily, our cell phones worked.

Thank you for providing hi-speed internet (as advertised) that gave us some added ways to keep in contact with business and family.

Overall -- we enjoyed the stay -- but not we're not sure it was worth the price. We've paid less for more.

One more negative that is not your fault ... the path to the beach is in need of much repair, it was very unsafe at the end. We passed up going all the way on the first try - but made it on the second day.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear that it sounds as though Toby's Crab Shack was not the ideal place for you. It is in a condo complex, so the possibility of having neighbors is there, but it is an end unit in the last building—a very quiet and peaceful location. Regarding the view in the master bedroom (which is located in the back of the condo- not the ocean side), you do have to go to the window and look to the left to see the ocean, but the condo Is Not advertised as having a view from the master bedroom. The exact wording the homeowner wrote years ago in the description is “Stand in the living room, dining room, kitchen or balcony and have breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean & beachfront.” No where did they mention the master bedroom. As for the soap situation, there is hand soap at every sink, dish soap at the kitchen, soap under every sink, both bathrooms have body wash, shampoo, & conditioner under the sinks and there is plenty of laundry soap in the laundry room. We are not sure what more could be done. The bed is a very comfortable pillow top mattress and a brand new. I don’t think I would consider the bed to be too tall personally- it’s the average height of a pillow top. On VRBO, the unit was advertised has having a landline. We apologize that was not removed many years ago when the landline was no longer a necessity due to cell phones. On VRBO for us, it’s in a location not easily found, so we missed seeing the little box that we needed to uncheck. We did not realize it showed on the tenants end as having a landline. Again we apologize and are glad your cell phone worked out for you. Lastly, the path to the beach is a nature path with 1 or 2 benches along the way should someone need to rest. There is a large number of retired owners who are full time residents of the complex that use the path on a regular basis, so I believe the association tends to stay mindful of that, but it may not be suitable for everyone. Thank you for staying with us. Should you return to Brookings we hope you’re able to find something that suits you better. The owners and ourselves (property mgmt.) take great pride in both the condo and guests and do everything we all can to make guests very comfortable and happy.

Heaven on earth (with one exception)

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time for the couple of weeks we were at Toby's. The apartment has everything you need to enjoy your stay...it's like being in your own home (they ran out of garbage bags and bleach but we replenished those...it was the least we could do given that everything else had been provided). We cooked lovely meals in the kitchen (many seasonings provided) and enjoyed the views from the balcony and the little sitting area with the large windows.

The wifi, cable, washing machine/dryer, dishwasher, vacuum, etc. all ran well. The bathrooms are beautiful and the entire place was clean. Even games were provided for our entertainment (Yahtzee, Monopoly). Plenty of blankets and pillows are provided. Sheets are comfortable.

There was one downside - the condo complex decided to replace a set of stairs in the building we were staying at during the time we were there and we woke up to banging noise every morning. This was not an issue with Toby's Crab Shack - it was an issue with the management of the complex. It appears they did not communicate with the owners that this complete stair replacement was going to take place. We spoke to the management company who we rented this unit through (Coastal Property Management) who spoke to the unit owner and they did their best to make things right. We were satisfied with their efforts. Valerie at Coastal Property Management is a true GEM!! From the moment we inquired about the unit to the time we checked out, she was so informative and welcoming.

A couple of things to keep in mind:

This complex overlooks a cliff and is not the best place to let little children play without supervision.

Plenty of towels are provided, however if you like a large bath towel/bath sheet, bring your own. The bath towels are small.

You need a car to get around.

The access to the beach requires you to take a specific path and it can be steep. Best to have a walking stick and appropriate shoes.

The town of Brookings has all types of stores and the fish market at the harbor is awesome to buy fresh caught fish.

Vista Pub has the best seafood/clam chowder but call before you go as they don't have it everyday.

The Fat Irish pub has a mean burger and Philly type cheesesteak sandwich.

Superfly has yummy breakfast and Matties does too.

Kuhn Thai was delicious as well.

Overall we fell in love with this place and look forward to coming back to Brookings as soon as possible. If you want to be on the beach, this location is ideal.

We had such a wonderful stay at this lovely condo!

  • 5 of 5

We were very lucky to have several days of sunshine at the Oregon Coast! The access to the quiet beach, tide pools, and the wonderful view topped off our great vacation. Toby's Crab Shack is definitely on our list to return to! Thank you for sharing your home.

AMAZING, INCREDIBLE, FABULOUS

  • 5 of 5

I would love to tell you to avoid this rental at all costs, but that would be an outright lie. This was an amazing week of relaxation in a condo that is so perfectly located and perfectly outfitted that you will want for absolutely nothing. We hiked the trail to the bay below, we went deep sea fishing, headed north to the jet boats and lounged around enjoying the view.

The owners have provided every amenity. From wi-fi to Dish TV. The rocking chairs in front of the picture window overlooking the ocean view are deadly and hard to remove yourself from. This condo has it all and it is beautifully furnished. The only thing you need to bring is clothes, toiletries and food (if you're inclined to cook or eat onsite). The kitchen has everything you need to prepare great meals. They even provide a barbecue.

The location is more suited to couples looking for a place to relax. It's very quiet. There are no amenities for children. No where to play, no pools, playgrounds, nowhere to be left alone outside to enjoy the sun under the watchful eye of a parent. This condo is sitting on a cliff and could be a problem for small children.

We were so impressed with our stay that while we were there we secured our next rental dates.

Our Own Private Beach!

  • 5 of 5

I often watch shows on HGTV where people spend thousands and thousands of dollars to rent a private island or vacation getaway for a week. This condo at Rainbow Rock was comparable. The trail going down to the beach is a beautiful private trail. We went to the beach at least twice a day during our stay and never saw a single other person. Beach access for the condos is sheltered on the south by the Rainbow Rock formation which can only be accessed at low tide and on the north by other large rock formations. Do NOT miss going inside the cave at Rainbow Rock at low tide. The colors and geology are spectacular! We were also pleasantly surprised to be able to access the Pacific Coastal Trail right outside our condo. The condo is beautifully appointed and the ocean view from every room was spectacular. The town of Brookings is delightfully small which made it easy to get around in when needed groceries or wine (of course). If you like nature, hiking, or just kicking back to watch the waves from your private balcony - this is the place for you!

Owner's Response: Thank you Melissa for such a great review. I must agree, the rocks and cliffs down at the beach are amazing and the coloration's in the rocks and in the little cave are breathtaking. I was amazed at hat I discovered the first time I ever went down to the beach...including a fire red orange starfish! The prettiest star fish I have ever seen! We would love to have you again in the future. Please feel free to contact us if we can help you with your stay in the future.

Map

We are located at the Rainbow Rock Condominium complex. It is an oceanfront location with an expansive view of the ocean, beachfront and mountains. It is our little piece of heaven.

We sit about 150 ft above the beach. Several fun, winding trails right in front provide access to the beach.

The condo is approximately 1200 sq. ft. Mater bedroom with a king, guest bedroom with 2 twins. All rooms have an ocean view except the guest bedroom and guest bathroom. Quaint deck outside or comfy chairs in the alcove. Quiet and relaxing except for the pleasing sound of the ocean.
