“Took My Breath Away, Spectacular Rental Condo”

We found this condo thru Vacasa late in the season and felt lucky we were able to reserve it on short notice for a trip with my husband's mother. The price is extremely reasonable for this upscale rental - the pictures looked too good to be true - but they were accurate. Upon arrival my Mother-In-Law was completely impressed with the elevator that opens to the unit like a penthouse suite and couldn't wait to call her friends (score one for me!). It is also pet friendly and it was my dog's first trip to the beach.

This top floor unit (#206) does not lack spectacular, breathtaking, floor to ceiling ocean views, yet faces more Northerly toward Neahkahnie Mountain, Crescent Lake Outlet and Nehalem Bay. The building curves back, gradually changing from parallel to perpendicular to the shoreline (see pictures). The larger the unit number (highest being 208), the farther North it faces, but all appear to have extensive ocean views. The basement/ground level is covered parking, which was sometimes crowded. We stayed for five nites, and part of the time there were unruly children next to us, making a lot of noise in the common stairwell. The only real downside, the doors and windows (somewhat drafty) may need to be sealed/sound-proofed so the echo of the high ceilings and concrete construction can be toned down. This could also help with maintaining a comfortable temperature in these units.

The fresh water lake outlet was interesting to walk along and its water considerably warmer than the ocean for wading. I didn't worry about my dog drinking this water, an improvement over the salt water. The beach is long and wide and sandy, great for walks, flying kites, running the dog, agate or seashell hunting. When we were there a huge (and I mean HUGE) log pile-up was pressed up to the bridge over the fresh water outlet, most likely temporary but a testament to the powerful storms that can wreak havoc on the Oregon coast. While we were there in late August the weather was great.

The interior of the unit was well appointed, with all the latest decor. The kitchen was stocked with all the utensils I would ever need for cooking but mostly we ate in Rockaway (I think the nearest grocery store was in Tillamook, but could be wrong). There should be a king size bed instead of the queen size bed in the master bedroom but actually we were quite comfortable after figuring out how everything worked. We tried to use the DVR to play a movie but someone before us had kyped the cord that connects it to the TV. We did use the Ipod dock and flat screen TV.

Now that we found it, we will try to make Nedonna Views at Manhattan Beach an annual trip sans mother-in-law. We already have #204 booked for 2013, and can't wait to go. I almost hate to share what, for now, seems to be a well kept secret. ;-)

“I can't say enough BAD things about Nedonna Views #206- The South Hampton”

I can't speak more poorly of our experience at the Vacasa condos in Rockaway Beach on the Oregon Coast. First, we were called at 3:30pm (we were to check in at 4:00 and had tired kids who were sick of driving) and were told that the people before us were extremely messy and the condo wouldn't be ready until at least 4:30 or 5:00. So, we had to kill time and postpone our toddler's nap even more. Then, when we arrived and got unloaded, I went to put my toddler down on the top bunk only to find that it hadn't been made and the bed was SO rickety it was not safe for anyone. I called the management and was told the maids don't make that bed because they would have to climb up there to make it! If I wanted it made I would have to do it myself...however the ladder was missing so I couldn't! They sent over a handyman who was shocked to find that NONE of the bolts had been tightened. Some had just been pushed in the hole! When he finally left I attempted to put my toddler down again but when I went to close the drapes I noticed that the curtain rod was pulled almost completely out of the wall and if I were to touch it the whole thing would have come crashing down. So, we had to leave the curtains wide open.
I then went to use the restroom and the toilet paper holder fell off the wall into my hand. I went to the master bathroom and that toilet paper holder fell off, too! It wasn't the first time either because when I went to set the roll on the back of the tank, I found another roll wedged between the tank and the wall. When we went to fix dinner, I opened the dishwasher and found an entire load of DIRTY dishes. So, we had to wait for it to run before we would have enough plates and forks to eat. As if that weren't enough, I specifically chose a unit with wifi so one person in our party could work remotely. The wifi did not work until 24 hours into our stay causing him to lose out on crucial dealings.
I spent a lot of time on the phone with various managers at Vacasa and had to leave multiple messages over long spans of time before they would return my calls. The night manager agreed that I deserved some sort of partial refund and said that she would contact me with what it would be before the weekend was over. However, when I got the phone call from a different manager, she said the best she could offer me would be a 10% discount on a future stay. I can assure you...I am MOST DEFINITELY NOT staying at a Vacasa property again and I urge you to think twice before you do, as well! The only reason I am giving them one star is because it's the lowest rating possible and the condo DID have a beachfront location.
