Amazing place! Highly recommend it

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing! It's a mile or so away from the ocean but the view is incredible. The home is large, nicely furnished and very clean. It sits on a hill behind a locked gate on 40 acres with nice green pastures to the west and beautiful trees and lush green ferns, blackberry bushes and other nice green plants in all directions. We were lucky enough during our stay to see a herd of elk a couple times in the pasture west of the house which was very cool. The owner Marshall was very easy to deal with. The rental process was very easy and owner emailed us a week prior to our arrival with gate combo and house key location, etc. The only minor issues are the WiFi and cell service which was a bit spotty. Owner said he has been working hard to get better coverage from the company that provides the WiFi. We stayed for 7 days and didn't want to leave! If you are looking for a place that is out of town but still close to the ocean then I highly recommend you check this out. Thanks Marshall for a great experience!

This place is amazing. If you're thinking of renting a home in the country with a view that is second to none rent this house. We saw elk every day. This heavenly spot is quiet yet minutes to everything you would want to see.

Clean, Roomy and Quality

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! We usually stay on the beach but due to availability we tried this one out. Surprisingly roomy and clean and modern! Really fit our needs! We barbequed around the outdoor inground grill which was great. The view was beautiful. The drive to town was a little inconvenient but really not bad for the price and quality of the place.

Amazing house and view.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not reflect the serenity of this house. We spent 4 days in this peaceful setting enjoying every minute. Sitting on the deck overlooking a dairy meadow and the ocean in the distance was just what we had hoped. We plan on returning next year. Not close to the beach but you can see the ocean in the distance. Bring any special pans or serving dishes if you plan to do a lot of cooking.

Beautiful Home and Amazing View!

  • 4 of 5

I absolutely loved the location of this house! It was quiet and serene with a fabulous of view on a clear day. The bedrooms and especially the master were comfortable and well laid out.

The only thing I would suggest is that if you plan on cooking here, bring some mixing bowls with you. There isn't too much to use in the cupboards.

We had a fabulous time here!

Thank you!!!

Great location, large and quiet home

  • 5 of 5

An awesome stay with plenty of room for a couple with two children and a set of grandparents! Everyone was comfortable and had what they needed for a lot of fun at the beach. We lucked out with great weather at Harris Beach, too. Thank you!

Excellent fishing in the Winchuck River on the property, and in nearby Smith and Chetco Rivers, and of course in the Ocean out of Brookings Harbor only minutes away. Elk and other wildlife may be seen close up as they wonder through the property.
