About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Fernleigh is a beautiful three-bedroom cottage, located just minutes from the beach. The property owners were once the owners of the former antique shop in Seaside named 'Fernleigh'. Although the cottage is filled with beautiful antiques, it is family friendly and welcomes children of all ages.

The home welcomes you with a large screened-in porch that has a swing on one side and rocking chairs around a small table on the other. You enter in to the high ceilinged living area with fireplace, game table, dining area, and kitchen. The hallway leading to the master bedroom with king sized bed also has a washer and dryer closet. The connecting master bath has an old fashioned claw foot tub with shower attached. You will find access to the back porch through both the kitchen and the master bedroom.

Upstairs you`ll find the second and third bedrooms with a shared full-bath (shower only) in between the two bedrooms. The bedroom to the left is a queen bedroom with access to the balcony. The bedroom to the right has a twin daybed with trundle pull-out. This bedroom also has access to the balcony with seating and views.

  • 2 of 5

Reviewer Comments:

This location is great but there are many issues with this rental. The NOT GOOD: This rental is fine if you are over 40 and have good memories of your grandmother's house. Study the pictures -- this is NOT set up well to be a rental house. The claw foot tub/shower downstairs is the height of inconvenience. There are small tables, chairs, privacy screens and the like all over the place making it difficult to move suitcases and beach gear around. The TVs are small. This is not a house you would describe as comfortable. It would NOT be good for family with smaller children. It appears to be owned by an older couple who likes LOTS of old stuff that is never supposed to be actually used. The GOOD: Kitchen is fine and well equipped. Bed linens are good. Water gets and stays hot, good water pressure in showers. Outfitting by Homeowner's Collection service is great -- everything was organized and included. Summary: to be a good rental this house needs a complete remodel of bathrooms and complete change-out of furniture.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. Fernleigh was actually the rental property owned by the owners of the first furniture store in the Seaside community, Fernleigh Antiques. Their children, the current owners of the cottage, have maintained the antique look and feel throughout the home. I appreciate your positive comments on the kitchen, linens, and service. And, I will share this review with the owner's of the cottage.

Fantastic Location and that's really what we paid for. The décor features too many antiques - including the furniture which is not very comfortable. Tv too small. The check-in agent, Aaron was awesome!

There's no place like Seaside! Love it!

Beautiful home close to the beach. Only a couple of recommendations. The furniture in the family room is very uncomfortable. Although the home is beautifully furnished with antiques, there is not a comfortable chair in the house. The furniture on the screened porch is better. The refrigerator needs to be replaced. The television in the MBR is very small and it would be nice if there were TVs in the other bedrooms. Even with antiques, it is still kid-friendly. Our 1 and 3 year olds thoroughly enjoyed the stay. We will definitely return to Seaside but will look for a more comfortable setting next time.
