Guestbook comments from the owner

By the way we have decided not to give you your house back, just kidding, we're in love with Astoria and your cute home. We are just going to have to book another week. We went to Seaside and played on the beach today. It was wonderful. Love Fred Meyer, we don't have those in California. Thanks for the great vacation!

Good value for the money.

  • 4 of 5

We were blessed with great weather and really enjoyed being so close to the Riverwalk, which we used sometimes twice a day. The home is clean and comfy. Beds are very nice with lots of good quality pillows and bedding. The neighborhood is very quiet with nice neighbors we enjoyed meeting.

Warm and Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we walked in the front door, we were delighted. Nice open kitchen and eating area with everything you need to prepare a meal. The living room is so cozy - plenty of seating (and arms on the loveseats and chairs - an important necessity for me!), with a gas fireplace. Upstairs there is a sitting area with a beautiful view of the river.

The house has a lot of lovely decor - mostly nauticul - that really adds to the ambience. Books for adults and children, crayons, games, cards, magazine. My granddaughter loved the yellow bedroom! (plus she beat me at checkers, but don't tell anyone)

This home was a very comfortable place to stay, and I wish we could have stayed longer.

Comfortable and quiet!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in Astoria. Very cute, comfortable and quiet area. Beautiful views. This rental was a perfect location for our fishing trip. The home is so cute and comfortable. We would rent this home again. I have absolutely no complaints about our home for the week. Charlene was very pleasant to talk with and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. We will be back soon!! Thank you for a wonderful experience in Astoria!!

Comfy, warm and inviting. This is the perfect house for an Astoria get-away. We'll definitely be renting it again.

The stay was nice. The booking however...

  • 3 of 5

I have mixed feelings about this review. I liked the house. It was comfortable, clean, and was set up well. We didn't have any issues with the house itself. It would have been nicer if it wasn't raining buckets the entire weekend but the house served its purpose while we were there. It was a thoroughly enjoyable weekend for us at the Dark Arts Festival at Fort George Brewing.

(Please note that reviews cannot show rates and that is why the rest of the review is partially redacted.)

So here is the single issue I had with the rental and in my opinion, a big one. When I originally came across this rental on the HomeAway website last October, the rental was listed at $XXX/day, 2 night minimum. A reasonable rate for an off-season rental. I made a mental note of the listing and then in November I was ready to make a commitment to book the house. I went back to the website and it was still available and listed at the same $XXX/day, 2 night minimum rate. I attempted to reserve the house and received the following reply from Char, the owner.

"I am sorry. I'm doing a three night only for that weekend at ($XXX+25) base price per night. Just haven't updated my rates yet and I can't do it from my phone. The program doesn't allow you to sorry if you're interested in the three nights I can do that. --Char"

Needless to say, I was quite taken aback by this. It smacked of false advertising and I wonder if she has done this to other potential renters. Since there were no other rentals available and we didn't want to stay in a hotel we went ahead and booked the house for the 3 nights. We didn't stay the third night.

It was a nice stay. Too bad the owner was shady with booking process. I won't be renting from her again.

Owner's Response: Kenneth, partner and 2 other couples stayed at my home for the Valentine's Day weekend. Rates for the off-season are standard rates. Special holiday rates must be put into the system through VRBO using a PC only. Is it impossible to do this thru your phone. I had not input the special 3 day requirement block for the Valentine's Day weekend yet and I let this person know that. Kenneth wanted to only book two nights for that holiday weekend and my requirement was 3. I let him know that verbally since I had not put that online yet.. His response was "Ok I'll book the 3 nights". I charged him the weekend rate for all 3 nights. Not a higher holiday rate but the normal weekend rate. This holiday is one of 3 of the most desirable weekends of the year, and I could have charged a holiday rate and I did not. I really don't know why he is saying anything about rates. There is no reason for any comment about rates or anything else for that matter. This person actually even complained about the weather on that Valentine's Day weekend trip.... In my fabulous house in a fabulous location with I would hope someone he cared about. Now tell me who would complain about that?
