Our family really enjoyed Bella Mar! The house was big enough for our crew of three adults and five kids ages 10-15yrs. The kitchen was well stocked for making meals and the dining table was large enough for all of us to sit around to eat and play games. The living room was very comfy for watching movies. The beds were very comfortable and the kids enjoyed sleeping in and lounging in their beds reading. The house was very quiet and private, which we enjoyed. The downstairs bedroom was perfect for grandma, who greatly enjoyed the sitting chair for her morning reading. Our dog loved it too. We appreciated the house was clean, but well worn in. Lastly it was a short walk to the beach, which we all visited several times daily. Great stay all around! Thanks!

Manager's Response

While the weather was unusually cold and stormy, the inside of this home was more than comfortable and accommodating. We built a cozy fire everyday and everyone worked on the hardest puzzle possible enjoying multigenerational family time. There were many opportunities for hot tub conversations, windy walks on the beach and bike rides to the nearby state parks when the skies allowed which was often. The kitchen was adequately supplied to fix meals for 8 people and we enjoyed sit down dinners each night around the ample table. My grandchildren LOVED this house and their parents too. We give it a full thumbs up!!!

I needed to get out of the city and decompress - this was the perfect little cottage! I love the wood-burning fireplace in the kitchen and backyard area. I was there to enjoy some time at the beach but also needed to work, and thankfully the wifi was perfect! I think a few things could be upgraded and fixed, but that's my preference and didn't take too much away from my stay. I would stay again!

The house was lovely and spacious. The kitchen was very well equipped, Considering the weather we were very happy to have the hot tub and the fireplace. I would change the log holder in the fireplace to sit lower so you can build up a bed of coals. Loved the cozy living room and bedrooms.

Fantastic Property--Everything We Wanted in Our Stay

August 2020
, Spokane, WA USA

Overall

We just got home from a weeklong stay at Bella Mar and couldn't be happier with how it went. We chose this property because of its size and cost--within our budget and big enough for our family. The house is absolutely lovely and well appointed. Plenty of room for the six of us, and lots of space for hanging out. The beds are comfortable and bathrooms are incredibly nice. And best of all was the hot tub--we used it every night after a day at the beach. It's about a two block walk down to the water, and the beach was perfect every day. Finally, it was SO quiet on the street and surrounding area, which we all appreciated. Everyone at Sunset was pleasant, welcoming, and patient. We loved Bella Mar and would reserve it again in a heartbeat. Looking forward to our vacation here in summers to come! Thank you Sunset!

We were 7 people, and we were going to be 8 which would have been accommodated beautifully. Great sitting areas, lots of space, wonderful hot tub that was hot when we arrived!! The kitchen was terrific, one of the best of any beach house I've ever stayed in. The owners obviously cook! We cooked all weekend and lacked no common shelf-stable ingredient or tool/pan. The Netflix on the tv was a nice touch too.

A bluetooth speaker to connect to would be cool but at any rate next time we'll just bring a little portable one.

We were delighted with the house. There was plenty of room, the kitchen was so well stocked with equipment for meal prep, the hot tub was great to have and the beds were comfortable. The only thing that could have been better would be to have a view of the ocean from the house.

The house had good spaces for a multi-family gathering. The large deck and super-sized outdoor table and the hot tub were highlights. The setting was peaceful and like being in the woods, with birdsong adding to the ambience. The beach was nearby, as were paved trails from town to Nehalem Bay State Park. The house was comfortable, clean, and well-provided with kitchen needs and towels. Walking to town was much closer than we thought it would be.

This house was fantastic. Though it was only my husband and I (and our pooch), this house would be perfect for a large gathering. The hot tub was sparkling clean (which isn't always the case) and the house in general was in pretty good shape for a rental. Nice big hang out porch and very close to both the beach and town.

Perfect in every way!

We were looking for a getaway with friends visiting from Germany and our adult children. The house is delightful, it has a well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds; all doubles or larger and extra singles in two of the rooms so it easily accommodates 8 adults and two children if needed. The owners have furnished it comfortably, it feels like a home and is very welcoming and relaxing to be in. Outside there is a large patio with grill and a dining table and a hot tub, it's very private although next to the road we were not bothered by traffic noise at all, the garden is well screened by fencing and foliage
Just two blocks from the beach, we enjoyed walking there and had a fire on the beach on our last night. A perfect end to a perfect stay. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Bella Mar to others and would love to come back again. The bonus for us is that our son announced that he had asked his girlfriend to marry him( she said yes) so Bella Mar will always hold a special memory for all of us!
Thank you.

This place is amazing!

Our family loved the easy walk to the beach, the quick drive into cute Manzanita (its certainly walkable, but we were feeling lazy!) and then relaxing in the living room with a cup of tea and the many games and puzzles provided. It is a truly lovely homea bit of paradise just a couple of blocks off the stunning Oregon coast. We highly recommend this rental!

We had an excellent time. The house is located on a corner which worked well for us to park our truck's fishing boats. The hot tub was beautiful and the kitchen is fully stocked. The bedrooms worked out perfect for our families. The walk to the beach was close and being next to the park entrance gave access to the all the running trails. It was a short drive from Down Town Manzanita and we had kids from 1 to 16 and everyone was happy!

We had 10 family members come together at the beach from Montana, Oregon and Washington. We really enjoyed our week stay together! The kitchen and dining area was awesome for our group to be together at meals and family game night! Our only two complaints would be not enough hot water for showers and dishes...we had to take REALLY quick showers and only a few people could shower in the morning, then we would run out of hot water. Same thing at night when we did hot water. Plus I wish they would of left hot tub tablets for us to put in the hot tub in the middle of our week stay to help with the cloudy water and a net to clean out the pine needles!

Manager's Response

The hot water heater is brand new but just a note that some careful planning is needed with any big groups that stay, as hot water tanks can only accommodate so many showers at a time. We don't leave hot tub chemicals at the house for safety reasons and we don't want the tub damaged if the wrong amount is used, but we are always happy to send our hot tub tech over to do a mid-stay clean if ever needed. Thank you for your feedback, both Sunset and the owners appreciate it!

We spent a week here with our three young adult children and their partners, with great success. The house was large enough for all of us, and we loved having a hot tub. It's a quick walk to the beach and the state park, easy to get into town, and very quiet. The only thing we might have wanted was better outdoor seating for relaxing - but we still had a great time. The place was clean and the staff were cheerful and welcoming. The beds were comfortable and there were ample supplies for cooking and serving our meals.

We had a wonderful stay at Bella Mar. You can really tell how much the owners love their home. It is comfortably furnished and has a well stocked kitchen. A great respite from the hustle and bustle of city life in Seattle. It is also a very short walk to the beach which is great. We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Blackbird and would highly recommend that restaurant to anyone who is visiting. The only nitpicks we had were that the home smelled strongly of bacon upon arrival and needed a lot of airing out. We also noticed that the ice maker had overflowed into the freezer quite a bit and had to be emptied out. Overall a wonderful stay and our second time at this lovely home.

The house was nice and clean. The bedrooms (except the master bedroom) are really small and have too much furniture in them. I suppose the extra twin beds in the rooms would allow more people to stay, but we did not need them.We enjoyed the spacious areas for family gathering. The kitchen was well-equipped. We did bring our grandchildren and a dog and it would have been nice to have the yard fenced. The beds were comfortable and there were lots of linens and towels. The deck was great.

Manager's Response

We are glad to hear that you were able to enjoy your stay regardless of the overstocked bedrooms. We will let the owner know of your recommendations to declutter the smaller rooms. Sunset Vacation Rentals looks forward to helping you book your next vacation stay.

Great rental company to work with. The house was great, with many places to sleep, an awesome backyard deck & hot tub. Beds were comfortable. Missing some vital cooking utensils like measuring cups & spoons for baking. Hot tub cover was broken and hard to put on and remove. Would be nice to have some throw blankets for those rainy coastal days. Also, would be nice if back yard was fully fenced for dogs.

Manager's Response

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. We value your opinion and forwarded your comments to the owners and they have added additional cooking utensils, measuring cups, and 2 new throw blankets (in addition to the 2 they already have) . We have checked the hot tub cover and found that it is not broken but does has a lift that can be hard to lift for some people. We hope we can help you plan your next vacation here at the beach.

Since one of our members was 90 years old, the bedroom downstairs came in very handy. The house is very private and the street extremely quiet. We slept with the windows open and didn't hear a thing until the seagulls woke us up in the morning. We loved it!

This is a lovely house to stay in to make real connections with your friends or family. There is a big kitchen- totally stocked, great dinner table, and living room all set for people to spend some real time with each other.

The beach is a 10 min walk- fairly easy to get to, and the town is 10 minutes away as well so you aren't bothered by a lot of tourists.

We had a great time. The house had everything we needed to make it a great stay. It was two blocks from the beach- easy enough for our 6 and 4 year olds to walk. I'd recommend it if you intend on spending your time indoors or away from the house. The exterior of the home leaves a little to be desired as the back yard is shaded, paved and only worth using for being in the hot tub. The front is a dirt road and the sides are immediately next door to another home while the other side is adjacent to a busy arterial.

This is a great house in Manzanita. The house sleeps 10 people in 3 queen beds, 1 full, and 2 twins. The beds aren't all the most comfortable but they are acceptable. The hot tub is amazing and quite large. Everything else was as expected... enough kitchen amenities, towels, etc. Lots of Scrabble sets and several puzzles available for game folks, and a couple of girly kites you can take out to the beach. The only thing I don't like about this place is the stone tile flooring. Because there are so many crevices, it hides lots of sand and grit which sticks to feet when you walk around barefoot (we just wore socks and problem solved). We really enjoy this place though, so much so we've stayed there twice.

We liked the fact that the living and kitchen/dining areas were separate. When you go with a group, sometimes you want some separation for different activities, conversations.

This is our second stay at Bella Mar. We came back because we really like this property. Manzanita is much less crowded and touristy than that place up the road. And the IGA is convenient and has more selection than you know where.

The beach is only a short walk, but that keeps the wind to a minimum at the house.

The only things we disliked were the "queen" bed in the middle bedroom (it was a futon) and the bare floors that make every sound carry throughout the house.

The hot tub was a delight at the end of the day. The kitchen was well supplied with dishes, glasses, a coffee maker, pot, pans and lots of seating around the table. We cooked in most nights. The laundry was used every day.

Great value for a family vacation away from July in Oklahoma.

The property was just at the edge of town and had a quick walk to the beach. You could also walk to town in about 20 min. The house had a lot of character and the hot tub was a bonus. There were a few issues with the house in that is looks like the foundation settled and has caused the doors and floors to not be square, so a few doors wouldn't shut. Also, there looks like there is moisture issue in the upstairs bathrooms with mold on the windows/ceiling. Other than that, the company was great to work with, we had an awesome stay. The house was supplied with all our household needs, the fireplace added an extra touch, and we got a great deal!

The management company was quick to respond to my reservation inquiry when I was looking for a home. I would highly recommend this home.

We had a great time at this house, very accommadating. Only dissatisfaction were the kitchen table chairs were hard to move on the tile floor. Getting out from under the table caused a great deal of noise and we had babies sleeping. Also, one of the bedrooms had a futon instead of a bed and it was very hard. Didn't sleep well. Other than that we loved the home. Location was great-just a few blocks from the beach!

Completely happy with the home in every regard except for the heaviness of the dining room chairs and the difficulty in moving them prior to or after sitting down. I recall other comments to this regard in reviews about the house. Would recommend some gliders under the legs of the chairs. Need better shades in several of the windows instead of the rolling blinds. All in all we were extremely happy with the rental. The home was beautiful, nicely decorated and had character. There were plenty of towels and blankets and everything else we needed.

We found the rental as described. We had rented on the basis of the number of bedrooms and beds and over the course of 5 days filled them all. The house served our needs well with 6 adults and 4 little ones and 1 teen. It is very comfortably furnished and the kitchen is well supplied with cooking and eating utensils. A fenced back yard would have been nice but the 4 year old boys loved "Black Hill" and the sand in the front yard. We would stay here again.

Wonderful Place!

We loved the Bella Mar! It was super clean and had everything we could imagine in the kitchen. The only thing lacking was perhaps some aluminum foil and Saran wrap to have on hand, and maybe some gliders on the bottoms of the kitchen chairs. It was great to be able to walk to the beach so easily, and our kids loved being right across the street from the bike path to Nehalem Bay State Park. All the bedrooms were comfortable, lots of places to curl up and read, and we enjoyed the hot tub, too! Thank you for a fabulous stay!

We had a wonderful time. Weather was nice so not sure how well it would've faired with inclement weather. A little farther from the beach than I had hoped and the inability to have a natural wood fire anywhere was a disappointment. Still very nice home and easily accommodated 6 adults and 3 kids and one dog. Pretty minor complaints. Overall a great time.

This house was by far the nicest beach house we have rented and we've rented at least 20 over the years up and down the Oregon Coast. It had everything we needed including good kitchen knives, appliances and cleaning supplies, very comfortable beds, plenty of towels and lots of places to sit, get some quiet, or hang out with others. The hot tub was a real bonus too!

Our family really enjoyed our time at Bella Mar. Everything was neat and in order. The home was very comfortable, and we spent many hours together in the kitchen. The dining room was the gathering place, and it felt like home. Easy access to the beach, and the perfect location to run up to Seaside, Cannon Beach and then Tillamook, you have to go to the cheese factory when your that close. We will stay at Bella Mar again in the future.

We were impressed with what a lovely, spacious home this was. Three generations, plus 2 dogs enjoyed being able to spread out on a rainy afternoon with a quiet corner to read, a large table for games and the game playing in the other room. Close to beach, lovely wooded walks in the state park--we'd enjoy returning with better weather next time.

Bella Mar is a lovely house that was remodeled in a very professional manner. It has lovely bedroom facilities and the living areas and kitchen are excellent. However, it is on a gravel street that kicks up a lot of dust and is farther from the beach than
we were led to believe. It is alos 1.2 miles to the Manzanita town shopping area.

The property was great for our family needs. Our only criticisms were a need for an outside table, which magically appeared on our last day; A gas BBQ would have been a little more convenient; a few light bulbs in the kitchen were out. The rough stone floor in the eating area is a very bad match with the heavy chairs!
The location was awesome and the complete kitchen was grand.

This house and property is ideal for a large family or two-three small ones. It's three blocks from a great beach and well situated to all the attractions in Manzanita. The owners have made a great investment in the kitchen, beds, linens and general accoutrements of hospitality; this is a wonderfully comfortable property.

Property was great. Very well stocked and a lovely home. We could have used a regular size broom to sweep floor daily as well as cleaner for table tops outside. One of the single beds (my daughter was going to sleep in) had sand on top as well as

My family of 4 and another couple with their baby stayed at Bella Mar for 5 days. The place was spacious and had everything we needed. We were looking for something pretty specific and it was hard to find. Large house, hot tub, close to beach. This home was close enough to the beach and the space was great. The hot tub was a great way to end the day. The only complaint I have is the distance from the little town. I didn't feel comfortable walking with my toddler and infant on the windy road w/o sidewalks. We had to drive a few times, but it all worked out nicely.

There are coyotes in the area which would have been helpful to know beforehand. One morning we were out with our small dog off leash as a coyote walked down the road directly in front of the house. We were able to avoid a problem but had no idea these animals were prevalent. Had we known going in, we would not have allowed our pet out without a leash.

Loved this place. Large and roomy, and blocks from the beach. Hot tub isn't private, and there's no fence to separate you from Nehalem Rd., which means that dogs need to be watched/leashed if left outside to enjoy the day. (My guy just likes laying in the sun, but I couldn't trust him out there alone, and his leash is only 6 ft long, which doesn't give a lot of room to move, so I had to attend to him a lot.)

This was a great home with lots of space for two families with young children. The kids loved all the different rooms and spaces and we made an adventure out of the 2-block walk to the beach.

It would be nice if you could stock houses with a few more basics...inexpensive cooking oil, for example, would be nice. A blender would be a welcomed addition as would some throw blankets for the living room.

We'll likely stay there again!

The spring weather turned into a winter storm for most of the week with plenty of rain, hail (snow in the mountains) and 80 mph winds that created a beachcombers delight at LOW TIDE with a selection of Japanese glass floats, bottles and driftwood. Theres a good selection of books and jigsaw puzzles to help pass the time and relax. Our one recommendation is that the owners provide their renters with a more contemporary, larger, flat screen TV for those days when stormy weather traps you at home.

Great house for a getaway!

myself and 7 friends decided to get away for the weekend, and this was the perfect house to do it. There were enough beds (that were comfortable) and the dining room table actually seated 8 people. The kitchen and dining room are open which makes it nice when cooking, and the kitchen is well stocked. The hot tub was great also. It is a short 2 block walk to the beach.

Bella Mar was a pleasant home to spend our holiday season in.

Here are a few thoughts that would have made our stay even nicer: GARBAGE, the garbage can was full upon arrival and the last thing we are thinking of during our honeymoon is to take out the garbage--someone else's garbage. As a result, there was no where for us to put our accumulated garbage at the end of our stay. HOT TUB, First, the property owner should put up some sort of screen (fence, vegetation) to provide a basic level privacy. Second, it would also be helpful to install some hooks out by the tub for storing robes and towels. FIRE PLACE, please update your web site to state that only presto-logs are to be burned in the fireplace (luckily, that is what we brought with us). TV, update the web site to state that there is a DVD player as well as a VCR player with the house. The web site said only VCR, yet we had to disconnect the DVD to play the VCR tapes we brought with us. BLINDS, the blinds throughout the house do not work very well.

The table was big enough to fit everyone - with a fire burning in the fireplace in the back ground. Well stocked kitchen, nice hot tub, a wonderfully decorated home, nice floor plan for a group.

We enjoyed our stay at Bella Mar. What a great house that had plenty of room for everyone. We had never visited Manzanita and we will definitely be back. What a great town! My only slight criticism would be that I thought it would be a shorter walk to the beach. The house sits 2 fairly long blocks from the beach, but once you get there it is awesome. Just spectacular... And the house's blinds need to be replaced. They kept falling off the windows, literally, nearly hitting you every time. But if you can figure them out and plan for the couple block walk, the place is for you. THE HOT TUB WAS AWESOME!

Since this was a home we were quite comfortable with and had enjoyed in the past we were just Happy Happy to enjoy it again. Good times and good memories.
