About Holly Hatch
Hello! We are Lonnie and Lori. We love the ocean and have always dreamed about having a place to get-away and relax. We are really excited to share our home with you and hope that your stay will be very memorable.
Holly Hatch purchased this Condo in 2008
What makes this Condo unique
The view is our favorite part of our home. We can sit for hours and watch the water and there is always something changing. Of course we are always on the look out for whales, but watching the surfers at the end of the beach and even the fisherman has become quite entertaining. At night we crack open the sliding door and listen to the soothing sound of the ocean. During crabbing season there are a lot of boats out at night that have big lights and you can see the crew working. Vacations are meant to be relaxing and replenishing so we tried to capture the sprit of that in our home and it feels great to us. We furnished it with comfortable but modern furnishings, left clutter to a minimum, and let the view take center stage. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do.

Fantastic Pacific Ocean Retreat!
This was our first "real" family vacation. If you are looking for a beautiful ocean view, this is it. We loved our stay! The walks on the private beach were my favorite.
Pros: Reasonable price; easy check in; close to town; amazing ocean view; clean; well stocked kitchen appliances: washer & dryer; private beach access; trail to beach well marked.
Cons: Close to busy highway (traffic noise when patio door open); trail to beach very steep (take your time); shortage of washcloths (if staying longer than 2 days).
The pros outweigh the cons on this one in my book, I would definitely stay again.
The view is the only reason worth renting this property
The condo itself is severely outdated.. they really need to consider updating some things such as appliances, flooring, bathroom decor, fixtures, lighting etc. I understand the place is old but a little work and money could go a long way! The place is musty and didn’t seem very clean. Blinds were broken in the master bedroom. A/C didn’t work and when I tried to notify property manager through VRBO app about it, I received no response so we used a fan to try to keep cool (heat rises and the 3rd floor can get warm quickly). We had one small packet of soap in each bathroom (no shampoo or other toiletries) so lucky we brought a few things. These are just a few things we were not happy with.. Now for the things we did enjoy: The view.. wow! Literally if that’s all you care about then you will be happy here. It’s spectacular.. also very close to town, grocery store, restaurants and such. We used as home base while traveling to Trees of Mystery in NorCal and then jet boats on the Rogue river the following day. We did take in some spectacular sunsets down on the private beach and got some great pics. Overall I would consider staying here as a last resort if nothing else was available.. There are other homes along this section that deliver the same view but may be more updated and clean.
We are sorry to hear this rental did not hold to your standards. We have passed along your suggestions and tips. Sometimes the VRBO emailing service is not the easiest form. In the future if deciding to book with us, please do not hesitate to call our office or the provided After Hour Emergency line that is emailed or posted in the rental. We are located here in Brookings and try to address any and all issues as quickly as they come through, we are sorry yours was looked passed. Thank you for taking the time to review the home and give us some suggestions.
This condo was very relaxing and had beautiful views. This was a two bedroom townhouse that had everything we needed while on vacation. It was only a short drive to downtown Brookings to restaurants and stores for groceries. We definitely enjoyed our time there.
We loved our stay at Whale Watcher! The 3rd floor condo has a terrific view of the gorgeous Brookings shoreline . The 1/3 mi walk down to the private beach takes just enough effort the make you feel rewarded when you get there. So beautiful.
Even though Highway 101 is close, the road noise is minimal and easy to ignore.
The condo is very well equipped and super comfortable. The unit is private and quiet. We’ll be back again, I’m sure. Highly recommended.
Great beach house
This property is just like the pictures show. The apartment is beautiful and the place is really pretty. It is right on the trails for the Samuel Boardman state park so we didn’t even have to get into the car for a few days which was so nice. The house is well stocked and the porch is awesome. Very clean and comfortable. Thanks for the coffee filters and the extra touches. I would definitely stay here again, and would love to have stayed longer.
We appreciate your feedback and kind thoughts. We are happy you enjoyed the trails as much as us! We hope to have you back in the near future.
Open living, dining, kitchen area provide a comfortable family space with incredible ocean views. Balcony with grill was a great addition. The lovingly maintained trail to beach was enjoyed several times daily! Friendly neighbors. Can't wait to come back to Whale Watcher!!!!!
We cannot wait to have you back as guests! Thank you for the review and we hope to hear from you soon. Thanks!
