Great place to stay for 6 couples!
Great place for a large group (6 couples) to stay. Ample privacy due to the number of bedrooms and bathrooms and a perfect common area to meet during the waking hours; both upstairs and down! The private access to the beach was wonderful too. Great stay- we’ll be back!
The House was lovely, large, and had everything we needed. Except for shower soap :) but we just used hand soap. Definitely recommend it! Beach access is great!
Great view but the home is showing it’s age
The view and beach access for this home are great, but be sure to temper your expectations beyond that. This home was built in 1971 and is mostly still original. That makes all of the bathrooms close to 50 years old and they very much look and behave that way. The owners have elected to maintain this 70’s feel in the bedding and furniture as well. Everything is functional enough, but just barely. Also, when we stayed in this home (March, 2018) the pictures on HomeAway did not match what we found in the house. There are significantly fewer beds and instead they’ve built plywood sleeping platforms with mats (so remember your sleeping bags). Also, two of the “bedrooms” don’t have doors and instead have curtains for privacy. We had a great vacation in Lincoln City, but we would never stay in this home again.
Thank you for your review. We encourage our Guests to contact us if there are questions. To simply comment that the original fixtures and appliances of the house “barely works” is not true.
Our Home is custom designed and built in the 70s with quality materials by a well-known Broadcasting Pioneer. We keep the architectural features of the House but we replace most furniture (furniture & appliances). As the House sits right on the edge of water, it faces wind up to 90 mph, salty air, and sand. The wear and tear will undoubtedly be greater than homes further in land. We maintain and replace essential systems (water, electrical, & heating) to ensure our Guests are comfortable. All our appliances are under warranty with Sears. As part of check-in process, we encourage our Guests to go through checklists and notify us if major items are malfunctioning. We have no such call from this group of Guests.
Previous years, Castlewood by the Sea is tailored towards large families (30 Guests). Starting 2018, Lincoln City passed a new law limiting all Vacation Homes in Lincoln City with a max of 5 bedrooms and 16 people. We had no choice but to reduce the # of bedrooms to 5 plus + 2 sleeping areas (curtains). With a max 16 people occupancy, we reduced the # of beds to 4 Kings, 4 Queens, 1 Daybed and a Crib. If our Guests do not want to share Kings and Queens beds, we suggest Guests to bring sleeping pads, blankets to be placed on the Zebra tatami mats platforms. Since the new change, we have not updated the pictures because we have not taken new pictures.
The photos of the Home are taken by one of our previous Guests, who is a professional photographer and as with any photographer lens, it may portray the house in a different light and color. The appliances, textures and finishes, fixtures of the Home are what it is. There is no misrepresentation of the House.
We open up our Home to share so our guests can enjoy the astonishing view of the ocean. It’s a great place for family reunions and group gatherings as it is a uniquely built House of 6300 sqft with a span of windows and private stairways to the sand. We have gathered with friends and families to create special memories here which were ingrained through the serene view of the ocean and sky. Vacations at the beach allows us to relax with nature, to immerse ourselves in the ocean breeze, waves and beautiful sunsets. With such experiences, one is able to breathe and let go of trivial matters and stresses in life.
Wonderful Place to Stay-Unbeatable View and Comfort
We had a large group of family members staying at this house for 3 nights last month, everyone was very happy with the accomodations. We were all very comfortable, there was more than enough room for everyone, the game room was great and there are plenty of games, TV's etc for the rainy times and the variety of personalities and tastes. The house had all the appliances etc we needed stocked in the kitchen and elsewhere. The view was the absolute best I have ever had at any beach property, the picture windows are huge and they are located in a very comfortable and nicely furnished room. We would definitely recommend this house, to anyone, but especially for any larger group it is perfect. It has great private beach access and it is also close to the casino and other attractions/restaurants etc. The property manager was very responsive and easy to work with and did things in a timely manner. We really enjoyed our stay and plan to stay again in the future.
Excellent place for our large family reunion.
We just got back from staying the last week at this house and we all loved it. The house was nice and cozy and had lots of space. The beach access was great as this is the only house for a block or so that has beach access it felt like the section of beach in front of the house was our own private beach we were the only people along that stretch of beach. The beds were good and the kitchen was nice and had the equipment that we needed. The kids and adults loved playing pool and Foosball. The house has WiFi which wasn't the strongest signal but it worked fine and just forced us to interact with each other more in person. Overall we loved it there and hope to be able to return again. someday.
