Guestbook comments from the owner

Just now home from Portland and wanted you to know that we had a really great time in oceanside. The lower unit was perfect for us, not too many goodies to move up from the baby's reach and easy to baby proof. The view from the unit was WONDERFUL, and it was an easy walk to the beach even with a baby in a back pack. - Joyce

Wonderful view, cozy home

  • 4 of 5

This place had a balcony with an amazing view and the home was cozy with nice decor, very quaint. The heat worked great and quickly warmed the house. There was also a fireplace which was very useful and added to the relaxing atmosphere. The linens were all clean and more than adequate. However, the bathroom was not as tidy- the roll of toilet paper on the dispenser had a smudge of something on it and there was hair on the toilet seat. All the other rooms seemed pretty neat and well kept. The stove, oven, and microwave worked just fine. There were plenty of dishes for the two of us, too. Pans were kept in a cabinet under the counter by the underside of the sink where a pipe protruded from the exposed wall. It looked like the back of the cabinet was unfinished where these pots and pans were kept, otherwise dishes were fine. The views through the huge windows and balcony were breathtaking. We would definitely come back. Oceanside is a great little getaway.

Owner's Response: Kurt Thanks for the feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay but sorry that the place was not spotlessly clean. Over the holidays our usual cleaner was not available and we used another service. Everything should be back to usual going forwards. Happy New Year, Steve and Chris.

very comfortable, fabulous view

  • 5 of 5

the house has fabulous views of the capes, with adequate kitchen for quick and easy meals. the bedrooms were comfortable, and the kitchen table was nice for eating, crafting, and games. There was lots of towels, which was really nice. It was clean. the stairs down to the lower unit are steep and narrow, so be careful.

We are planning to come back here.

Incredible view

  • 4 of 5

We were blessed to visit during the crazy weather..Tornado 8 hrs before we arrived and then the hurricane that ended up not being so bad! The house definitely needs some TLC. Beds were comfy, linens were clean and the fireplace was lovely one rainy night! (Got wood at Safeway in Tillamook)

We drove and walked to the beach, both no problem! The beach is incredible, definitely go thru the tunnel to the north and the next Beach! Full of treasures!!

Rosannes in town was delicious, loved the clam chowder and the view! Definitely go to the Cheese Factory in Tillamook and the Pelican Brewery in Pacific City..

With just a few details attended to in the house, it would be perfect!!

Spectacular view! Modest, cozy apartment

  • 4 of 5

This place was a good find, very reasonable rates and what a view! The check-in process was easy, good communication. The only complaints we had were when it rains, the water runs down the windows, making it hard to see much outside. And the dvd player wouldn't work - the picture was in black and white and there was no sound. The accommodations were basic but comfortable, and we really enjoyed having the fireplace on such a rainy weekend. The kitchen had the bare minimum of essential cookware (minus salt and pepper - we had to buy some), but enough to get by. I'd definitely stay here again!

Very comfortable, great location within Oceanside!

  • 4 of 5

This is a private lower unit in an older house, accessed by a rather steep concrete stairway that is NOT suitable for those with mobility issues. The view from the living room/kitchen area, as well as from the outside deck, is wonderful. Everything was very clean, and the furnishings were very nice and comfortable--especially the two rocker recliners, one of which I seemed to fall asleep in every evening after watching the sun set!

After a few minor glitches upon check-in that were remedied immediately--and beyond expectation! (i.e., a couple of burned out light bulbs and a gas grill that wouldn't light)--we were able to settle in just fine. Being a lower unit, however, meant we heard the movements of the renters upstairs including a running toddler and a ball-chasing dog. They left the day after we arrived with no one moving in afterward so our remaining days were quite peaceful. We also noticed, once they were gone, that we had way more hot water from the tap! Prior to that, it was tepid at best. As other reviewers have said, the kitchen leaves a lot to be desired. The stove and oven work great and the fridge is standard, but the counter space is VERY limited. If you plan to cook your meals here, keep the prep simple!

This unit is very comfortable and homey, but not quite a five-star rental. I will admit, though, the longer we were there, the more comfortable we got and accepted the less-than-perfect aspects as part of the fun experience. Thank you, Steve, for your quick email responses before and during our stay, and for the over-the-top remedies! We look forward to renting with you again on our next visit to Oceanside!
