I rated this 4 stars, but this is not a 4 star resort in the south Pacific. It's a nice, clean comfortable beach cabin on the northern Oregon beach. Manzanita is a quiet beach town with a wide sandy beach and not a lot of commercialism. I'm a native Oregonian and I appreciate this town so much. In true Oregonian form I am reluctant to say how great it is for fear of swarms of people ruining it. However, I am also a traveler who appreciates other people's impressions so I want to do my part.
This is a cabin, not a house. Its wood paneled inside with the front wall full of windows. You see the surf from the main room, dining/kitchen and master. It's just across the street from the ocean front homes. There was a wood stove, an appropriately stocked kitchen:we used the coffee maker,stove,oven,microwave and all worked well. There were plenty of mugs and wineglasses! I even worried about there being a wine opener, but there was one. We cooked our meals there easily.
There was a cable TV, but we only watched Downton Abby. We read the books and a fun collection of National Geographic. we tried a game of backgammon on the chess set, but there were no proper pieces. We managed one game.
The weather was terrific and we took full advantage walking on the beach during the day and under millions of stars at night.
We liked this little cabin- two bedrooms decorated in beach fashion, but not too cutsie. The high ceilings made it seem spacious. My only criticism would be the housekeepers need to do some high dusting, but everything was tidy and inviting. It's the middle of winter and it was cold in the early morning. We were able to read on the deck in the afternoon despite the winter temperatures. There were plenty of extra blankets which we added to our bed in the early hours. The bed was fine- a king. There were plenty of towels and the shower was hot with good water pressure.
We will definitely go back and will rent this cabin again.
