This was our second stay at this home. We choose it again because we have young children and the backyard is very nice. When we arrived we noticed right away the backyard was very over grown. The grass can up to my children’s knees. We had planned to bbq that night with our friends but with toddlers, we felt it was a little dangerous to be running around in it. I called the owner who requested pictures of the yard and was able to eventually get the grass cut 1-2 hours later. In the mean time we ended up eating at a restaurant until it was taken care of. The house it’s self smelled very bad of fish and wasn’t in great condition. We needed extra blankets for the kids that night and most of them were extremely old and stained. In our bedroom there was liquid all over the wall and the carpet looked like it never been cleaned.
The kids really enjoyed the back yard and we managed to enjoy our stay. We requested a late check out and was surprised when the owner asked me how much I was willing to pay. I thought he was joking. Turns out, a week later, he was serious when he deducted $40 for the late check out, $100 for the extra hour the house cleaners charged him and “draining” the hot tub and random damages. We had no idea what he was referring to. We are a group of very responsible parents and have never been nickel and dimed before with our security deposit.
We won’t stay here again. In the end the house was a $650 weekend and we could of stayed at a much better rental for that.
The House is within walking distance to the beach, and in a very quiet neighborhood. It had a spacious yard with a BBQ and Fire Pit that we enjoyed! It was a perfect Birthday Beach retreat!
My fiance and I decided to take our kids on a spring break trip and allowed them to take some friends. We had the best time and the weather was perfect. The beach house was everything we expected. We really love the fact that our two daughters were so young that they had an amazing play structure to play on in the front yard and the teenagers really loved the hot tub, pool table and all of the video games. I think that this house is very family-friendly and can accommodate to any age staying in that house. Hands down the best beach house we've ever stayed at. Steve was very accommodating and went out of his way to make sure we understood how everything worked because we had never rented a beach house that way before. I definitely have and will continue to recommend this house to everyone I know.
Beach Retreat is amazing for the young, the old, and the furry! This house has a great layout which gives plenty of space for guests to rest or play or both simultaneously. Kitchen is super well equipped with many pots, pans, dishes, glasses, etc... We had a party of nine and we all could fit comfortably at the dining table with room to spare. Our pooch loved the fully fenced yard; he was able to run around until his heart was content. Hot tub has an ocean view. The house is dated with a few quirks, but it clean and obviously well loved. We want to come back for sure!
My family enjoyed this rental to the fullest. We had children from ages 2-12 that played on the amazing treehouse. The house has some great things to offer for the youngest of them to the oldest. The adults enjoyed the air hockey, fooseball table and pool table. The outdoor fire ring was a great place for all of us to come together and just spend some wonderful family time. We are planning a return visit to Lincoln City and this house will be one we stay at again.
Even though it rained most of our trip we all had a wonderful time at the beach retreat! We didn't even let it stop us from using the hot tub. This house had something for everyone to do and turned out to be the best family vacation and we can't wait to book it again!
We had such a wonderful time. Once again the place was clean and comfortable. The yard is awesome. And a hard feature to find.
