The location to the beach was a short walk and very convenient. The house was nice inside but the layout is a little different. Lots of stairs but no problem for us. Kids loved playing in the loft. I wasn't impressed with the kitchen table/chairs or the two lounge chairs. I've stayed in several rental houses on the Oregon Coast and this one was the most expensive. I think mostly because it was August. I understand you have to pay hirer prices in prime season but I would expect the furniture to match the price like other places I've stayed for less. The beds were okay. Comfortable enough but nothing fancy. The kitchen was missing a dish towel. They did provide paper towels but it seems very wasteful. Only a couple toys in the house and no beach bucket and shovel for the kids to play with on the beach. Overall, we did have a great time but felt I payed too much.
Oceanside, OR is more remote then we expected. We had no phone service and there was no internet connection anywhere. Tucked away behind a mountain on the coast this sleepy little village is very fun for a family vacation away from it all. We travelled with our small children and another family who also had children. This house was perfect. The layout is brilliant. The bottom story has a shower to wash off your sandy feet. The second level has two bedrooms for adults and a third bedroom with bunk beds for the kids. The top floor has the kitchen and living area and it was more then enough space to accomodate our group. We played at the beach most of the time which was just a short walk from the house. Then back to the house to play board games, watch movies, and read. I recommend bringing all your food with you. It is far to a store or restaurant.
It was VERY windy while we were there. The kids were still able to build castles and play in the sand but this is more of an exploring beach then a laying out spot. Cape Meares nearby is worth checking out too.
