About Dorothy Cherkas
We are a husband and wife team, Alex and Dorothy, nice to meet you! We have been coming to the Oregon Coast for many years! We love Depoe Bay, Oregon and the surrounding areas so much that we decided to buy our home here and make plans to retire here in the future! We wanted to share our home with travelers to this corner of the world to give them a unique and personal experience by staying at our home! We hope that you'll fall in love with Depoe Bay's tremendous natural beauty, where the ocean collides with the mountains, the streams gently flow into the lakes and the mist beckons you to a time of stillness and beauty! And to make our home your home is the greatest pleasure we can have! So Welcome and Enjoy!
Dorothy Cherkas purchased this House in 2003
Why Dorothy Cherkas chose Depoe Bay
In 2003, when we decided to start looking for a home on the coast. We thought of the Central Coast first! We actually took our honeymoon here 30 years ago, right in Depoe Bay! We must of traveled from California at least 7 times between the two of us! From Cannon Beach, Manzanita, Pacific City, etc, ect. This was actually going to our very last stop! And I said to my husband, if we don't find a house this trip I'm DONE! Because I just couldn't find that house that just spoke to me. Pacific Cove was the first house we saw that morning and I absolutely fell in love with it! The charm, the warmth, the elegance, the privacy, Lincoln Beach, the views of the ocean, the layout, just everything! I said put a bid on it immediately! And we did! And the rest is history! We wish that your stay with us will impart what our home has meant to us all these years, is that you and your family and friends will come away with the same feelings of warmth, relaxation, rejuvenation, happiness and splendor with your stay at Pacific Cove!
What makes this House unique
The unique benefits of staying at a home, especially our home is comfort and privacy! You are not on a schedule! You can come and go as you please! You can play games in the game room, read a book in the woodland backyard, try your hand at a gourmet meal with a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, linger on the front porch while leisurely sipping a glass a wine, watching the sunset. It's all up to you. Pacific Cove is truly your home away from home! Welcome!

Online pictures vs. In person...VERY disappointed!!!
Looks great from the outside. Inside, it's big enough for 10 people, yes, however...the furniture is very 'garage sale' worn down(when sitting on couch, you sit sliding down); sheets & blankets are cheapest you can buy (fall apart cotton and spongy blankets); gourmet kitchen IS NOT! Overly used sticking, non-stick pans, no baking dishes larger than 6x6 (any meals to make, bring your own dishes!); NO ACCESS to beach nearby, you drive down Hwy a mile or more, so NO morning or evening walks just because! I've rented many places over the years, and this one was the WORST! To top if off, the DEPOSIT $$$ won't be returned...owner keeps it to 'repair' her crappy furniture...gaming tables in garage? Keeps small kids busy, cause it's so worn and very used, no one can really play a decent game. $2200 for 5 days...SO NOT WORTH THE MONEY!!! Look anywhere else...remember, I told you, from experience!!!
WOW! WOW! WOW! I didn't even realize that she posted this nonfactual review! I just happened to rework my site for the New Year and this so called review popped up! Talk about someone trashing my home and the LIES that are spun to disparage my home and my integrity on this sight! To say the least, I am not surprised! She threatened me after I told her that I would have to take the security deposit for repairs caused during their stay. She said that she would seek retribution by giving a terrible review. So here it is.Even though when my property manager called to check on them, her husband said , "It was a beautiful home"! I don't take lightly or make it a common action to take a security deposits from my guests for nothing! I've had this vacation rental since 2004 and during those years I must have taken 3 security deposits the past 15 years. 3, that's it! This guest left my home NOT as she found it but left it such a disastrous mess and ruined my solid maple dining table with burn marks all over, kitchen filthy and large stain marks on my sofa and just a gargantuan MESS! It was so bad that my housekeeper said that she needed more money to clean it! That's how bad she left it! This guest is so transparent in her false assessment of my home that I can only say, that her vitriol wouldn't have spewed out of her mouth if I just not taken her security deposit! The amount that she paid for my home is also misleading since Homeaway charges an amount for booking on their site and if you have rented a home on this site you know! And with 9 people you couldn't get a decent hotel room for that price for what I charged her group of 9! I very rarely come out against a review but this was definitely warranted! I'm on most other sites as well and you can read my reviews regarding my customer service and the favorable reviews of my home. I'll leave it at that.
Exceeded My Expectations!
This house exceeded my expectations. I booked it nearly a year in advance and appreciated that the owner not only honored the usual rates despite the eclipse but also allowed me to shift the trip forward a day to accommodate a work obligation that came up in the meantime. The house is comfortable, clean, and feels fairly new. The kids appreciated the pool table, ping pong table, and foosball table in the garage, and the back yard is also a fun place for them to play. The beach access is still washed out (the neighbor in the house beside it said it's been that way for 2 years now), but the beach down the road was easy to get to, had lots of parking, and more than met our needs. However, if walking to the beach is essential to you this may not be the place for you (same neighbor "didn't tell us" of an alternate route that involves trespassing, but we opted against it). Beds are what you'd expect in a rental--probably not as comfortable as your bed at home but better than the floor. My children slept on the pull-out couch and I'd have not wanted to trade places with them, but there is a foam mattress pad you can put on top if needed. You may want to bring some additional forks, but otherwise the house had everything we needed (and we just hand-washed forks). I would absolutely stay here again if we do another coastal weekend. It's a quiet and comfortable spot with balcony views of the ocean and the sound of waves just outside the window.
My husband and I plus another couple enjoyed our stay at Pacific Cove. It is centrally located between Lincoln City and Depoe Bay so ventures to either place was quite easy. The home is lovely and very comfortable with a great kitchen for preparing meals. It is in a quiet neighborhood and the deck outside the master bedroom was a great place to have coffee and/or watch the sunset. Unfortunately the beach access for this neighborhood had been washed out and therefore was not usable. We ended up driving up the road a few miles to Gleneden State Park for beach time. That was our only disappointment. Randy, the property manager was great to work with and very responsive. He had already begun looking into the beach access situation before our stay ended. We would definitely stay at Pacific Cove again once beach access is restored.
They were wonderful guests! And they are certainly welcomed back anytime at my home! Yes, unfortunately, the stairs to our beach access was destroyed during a recent storm. Because of extreme weather conditions, beach accesses can be unaccessible at times and this was one of them! And coming to this part of the Oregon Coast you have be aware of that. It can happen at anytime! It is in the process of being fixed and it will soon be open again! We have since put up alternatives to beach accesses in close proximity to Pacific Cove and you can view them in the Hospitality Suite. We looked forward to their stay with us in the future!
