A great escape for Mom and her four daughters

  • 5 of 5

My Mom's favorite place is the beach so my three sisters and I booked the Wave Watcher for her 85th birthday. The place was perfect. We enjoyed the views from the two decks and the picnic table, the hot tub, cooked several meals (the kitchen had all we needed), and walked on the beach ( the access is steps away) and drove into Cannon Beach. The house is comfortable and there was plenty of room for all five of us. The house is right in the highway but we hardly noticed. Especially inside you can barely hear it. It did not detract from our experience. Thank you!

Lovely beach house with all the amenities you'll need.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the views from the upstairs balcony. The walk to the beach was very short. The beach is a bit rocky and you couldn't really access the beach during high tide, but there are plenty of other amazing beaches with easy access just a short drive away. The kitchen was well-equipped and everything was in working order. The noise from the highway was loud at times, but I wouldn't let that stop you unless you are really sensitive. Not many board games, so bring your own if you want to play games. All in all, a lovely home and very nice location.

Wonderful coast home!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a long overdue girl's weekend, and this home was great! The hosts were very nice, the house is clean, lots of room, great house for the price. The kitchen was a bit small but had all the necessary equipment. It was great to soak in the tub while watching the waves. Would definitely rent this one again.

Beautiful and clean house!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Wave Watcher. The house was very clean. The house is right off the highway so you can hear some traffic noise but it isnt bad. You can also hear the ocean waves from the master bedroom. The view is great too. The hot tub was so nice! We sat in it during the rain and it was awesome. You are just steps away from the beach. It is a rocky beach bit if you walk down a ways you can have sand. The house is minutes away from Cannon Beach. The kitchen was well stocked.

My only suggestion would be to invest in a good mattress topper for the master bed. You just want to lay on that bed and look at the ocean. We had a great time!

Great house on the beach

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome and had everything we needed and more! When we encountered a (small) issue with the hot tub it got resolved by Carol within minutes which was much appreciated. Loved the short walk to the beach, and being able to see the sunset over the ocean from our balcony. I will second the previous reviews around the traffic noise - it is definitely noticeable from the master bedroom and living room (the house is basically right on hwy 101). We were fine with it, but for some people could be an issue.
