Description of the Manzanita vacation home rental
Convenience and simplicity are the hallmarks of this property. Walk four blocks to the best coffee or pizza in Manzanita or a stones throw to the beach. Want to send the kids to the park, it's a quick 3 minute walk, and you can even walk your clubs to the public golf course.

Welcoming with its openness, the mid-century modern look with a minimalist flare makes it easy to focus on what you came here for: To get away. To leave behind the distractions and slow down to the tempo of the pounding waves. From just sitting on the living room couch and looking out towards the waves to spending time down in the sand or down time on the deck, this unassuming property is welcoming.

Sleeping 6, with 2 queen beds & and convertible couch (IKEA), it accommodates a large family or a gathering of friends. Amenities include cable TV/DVD, Wi-Fi, a fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, all linens, an outdoor fire pit and more.

Not what I expected

May 6, 2015

The company was nice to work with. Tracey was thorough and organized. I received directions in the mail prior to my trip. The house is pet-friendly so I was bringing my little pup. The directions were hard to follow and I drove around until I found it. The garage was locked so I wasn't sure how I was supposed to access it. Finding the lock box was very confusing since the instructions said it would be located to the left of the front door. But I couldn't find the front door. There is a "sun room" visible when you drive up, but it only has a glass slider. I didn't think that was the "front door" so I walked around the home looking for a front door. Turns out the front door is within the sun room and the sliders were unlocked. Would have been nice to know that. Once inside, I immediately noticed a very strong odor of what I assumed was a deodorizer. It was extremely strong. My pup wouldn't walk on the carpet and stood on the kitchen linoleum shaking. I tried opening the bedroom windows, but it was obvious it was not going to help. I started getting a headache within 5 minutes and I am NOT scent-sensitive. The house was what I would call sparsely furnished in the living room and the furniture seemed old and was uncomfortable. The floor plan was a bit meandering and it was obvious after walking around that this is an older home that appears to have been sporadically updated here and there. The sun-blocking shades in the front window didn't work properly and I almost pulled the main shade off the roller trying to get it to roll up. I really dislike giving a negative review, but I think it's only fair to travelers looking for lodging. The other reviews were very good which is why I chose this one. Perhaps it was just a fluke that I found this rental unacceptable. I ended up leaving without unpacking and found a nice pet-friendly motel nearby. TO THEIR CREDIT Tracey was able to refund one night's stay (out of 2) and of course my deposits. I asked her to check the house herself and she said she did not notice any strong odor, so I guess it could be personal preference. Again, I appreciate her help and willingness to refund part of my rent.

Owner's reply:

This is the first time I have had any comments like this for the house, and I have found that some people are more sensitive to odors than others. We had just had the carpets cleaned some maybe something in the cleaning solutions was the cause. I am sorry that you weren't able to stay at the home, which many guests find to be a great home for a stay at the beach.

Relax at the Sunset

March 27, 2015

We enjoyed our recent stay at the Sunset House in Manzanita! The location and ocean views were perfect! The layout of the home was ideal! We were able to unwind and relax and will be returning again in the future!

Owner's reply:

Thank you for the review. The house is just a great spot to enjoy all Manzanita has to offer, and I love hearing that you enjoyed your stay.

Our stay was over the thanksgiving holiday. The home is comfortable, well stocked, and within walking distance of the beach. Some of the furniture and TV set up could be updated, (we would be willing to pay more if done) but overall, we got what we paid for and we plan to return in the spring.

large deck and awesome views

August 5, 2012

When we first arrived at the sunset house we were pleasantly surprised at the ocean view from the living room. The outdoor area was so much fun to grill, play catch with the kids and to just relax on the deck. This house had every connivence that we needed and then some. We enjoyed the dvd collection, games and books. We loved the proximity to the beach, town and city park.

4th of July on the beach

July 7, 2012

This house is great value for the cost. Location is perfect!!! about 4 houses from the beach but you can see the waves from the living room. 3 blocks from town so easy walking to the shops, etc. Although there is only 1 bathroom, it works out fine because the shower is in a separate room and accessible without going through the main part of the house so you don't get it full of sand after a day at the beach. Rental agency very responsive and easy to work with. The only thing I would add would be a propane grill rather than charcoal grill but otherwise, it is ideal. We will definitely stay here again.

The two of us were hoping for a relaxing escape and that's just what we found. Sunset House is very comfortable, casual but nicely decorated and equipped with everything we needed. We loved being steps away from the beach, the cute town, and the farmer's market. We are looking forward to our next trip to Manzanita and this lovely home.

I stayed in the Sunset House for a week over the 4th of July in 2011, and could not have asked for a better experience! The house easily accommodated my large group of friends (our number ranged from 3 to 7 at different parts of the week), and the location was absolutely ideal. The beach, visible from the large back deck as well as the living room, was only a block away on a dead-end street. The surfers in our group loved watching the waves from the deck, then walking down to catch a few when the conditions were right. In addition to the proximity to the beach, it was so much fun to walk the short distance to Manzanita's main street for coffee or ice cream, and we did this nearly daily. The house itself was very clean, comfortable, and more spacious than it appears in photos. I have since stayed in a few other properties on the Oregon coast, and none of them measured up to this one in terms of location, amenities, and value. I definitely plan to return in the future!

Manzanita is wonderful and this house was the perfect place to enjoy its many pleasures. Our group of dear friends stayed over a winter weekend that included the crazed howling of a full-blown Pacific storm, and the house of the perfect warm and cozy retreat from wind-blown walks on the beach just a block away. We loved watching the spume fly off the crashing waves from the comfort of the couch - the big picture windows looking west to the ocean are perfect for that. The house quite comfortably handled an onslaught of musicians and instruments, and was great for playing music into the wee hours; there are rooms you can retreat to, if need be, and a large and comfortable living room to gather in. The house was quietly stylish, completely set up for a collection of cooks (which we are) and fully outfitted for any adventure. We, being surfers and mountain bike riders, especially appreciated the large garage with all of its storage space for our gear. The house is an easy walk to Laneda St. and coffee, pastries, the morning paper, lunch, dinner, the local pub, the market and whatever you might need. Having rented many houses in various parts of Manzanita over the past 20 years, this is the only one I will stay in from now on. And, though it might sound touchy-feely, the spirit of the place is perfect. It is a calm and cozy retreat that its owners clearly love and cherish; we all plan on returning to it again and again.

What a great location! We enjoyed the view and sound of the ocean, and used it as a starting point for a quick walk to town and biking in the state park. We felt at home in this comfortable classically-styled beach house.

My family and I stayed here last summer and had a wonderful 4 day holiday! The house is spacious and open with excellent light and can easily accommodate 2 families. The back deck is a perfect place for BBQs or just hanging out drinking wine and looking at the view.

The location is just about perfect. It is a minute walk to the beach and maybe a 3 minute walk to the main drag (what's name of street??). The pizza place on the corner rocks and there is a very good Mexican restaurant nearby.

We love coming to Manzanita and will definitely come back to this house again!
