About

MANZANITA - Foswell is an unique home that is in a great location to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. Nestled up in a quiet neighborhood just north of downtown and surrounded by the natural landscape, this home will give you the feeling of being secluded in your own private haven. But just a quick walk and you are in town where you can enjoy the boutique shops, get a great cup of coffee, even get a treat for your pup at the doggy store, Four Paws on the Beach. A few more blocks and you can enjoy long walks on the beautiful 7 mile stretch of sandy beach.

Walk in and you will immediately notice the natural light from the skylights letting in the sun and the warm colors of the wood floors and interior of this cozy home. The main house has a great room where you can relax and visit while making dinner in the fully equipped kitchen, playing cards or board games at the large dining table, or watching a movie in the comfy living room.

But there are also many places to find some time to yourself to read a good book or just to unwind after a long day. The den offers an extra sleeping area with a futon and pocket doors that close for privacy and there is a small light filled sunroom as well. The master bedroom has a queen bed and bathroom with shower, with access to outside through a small sunroom.

Step outside and you will find a great deck and outdoor space to enjoy while BBQing or sunning on the deck while you can let your pup play in the dog run. Just across the deck you will find a guest suite that is perfect for a second couple to enjoy. With a queen bed and a full bath, with shower, it is perfect for privacy.

This perfect dog lovers retreat is meant to be relaxed in after those fun filled days on the beach. Grab your friends whether they be 2-legged or 4-legged and come discover the Foswell house.

This is a great vacation home for two couples, as the detached en suite allows privacy, and there are two charming rooms to gather in. Convenient location for walking to beach and town. The kitchen is easy to cook in, and we had a fun Scrabble night. Only downside was the detached room had an off smell but it was okay with some airing out.

We just spent a wonderful week at Foswell and there were some definite positives and negatives. Overall, we enjoyed the home and found it to be well equipped with anything we needed. Our biggest challenge with the property is with the 2nd bedroom being in a separate DADU building. This doesn't work for families with young children.

Positives:
-Comfortable Light-filled home with a really great design. Tons of windows and skylights everywhere. Plenty of places to sit. LOVED the big kitchen and open layout.
-Spacious: This house is incredibly spacious for the price, it's actually quite a good value. There is a library/tv room with a pull out futon and doors that close. We ended up using this space as the 2nd bedroom
-Great outdoor spaces, outdoor decks and fully fenced yard

Negatives:
-Bedroom situation- a little tough with kids or even 2 couples
-General condition of the house: appliances were outdated and the exterior was dirty and in need of maintence. Examples: cobwebs, dirty skylights, etc.
-Location - it's a bit far from town and the beach, but definitely walkable if you're motivated
-TV. There is one rather small TV for the entire home

Manager's Response

Thank you for staying at Foswell and leaving your review! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and all the amenities Foswell has to offer!
The aesthetics and openness of this home is loved by many people! This home is not fully fenced, however, having the doggy run is a plus!!

The owners will be getting screens for all the windows this Fall and our maintenance took care of cleaning up the exterior and deck area!
Thank you again for staying at FOSWELL. We hope that you come back soon for a future stay!..

8/14/21 Manager Update- There are now brand new screens for all of the windows!

We have stayed in this house before and love it. I t was a bit different this time because upon arrival, the center deck area was covered in feces from what I think might be a chipmunk. There were spider webs all over the outside of the windows with the feces in the webs. The window screens are all missing so the house was filled with flies and other flying critters. Despite that, I still would recommend this house. The beds are comfortable. It has three full baths with great showers. The center deck is perfect for congregating (when clean). This is a great house, just needs a good power washing and screens

Manager's Response

Thank you for staying at FOSWELL and leaving your review. Your feed back is very important to us. Thank you for letting us know about the condition of the exterior of the home and missing window screens. This has been brought to the attention of our Housekeeping & Maintenance department and is definitely on radar now , This house has been back to back booked all summer with a long booking in until early September. We are glad to hear the beds were nice and comfy and the showers are in great working condition.

Thank you for choosing Sunset Vacation Rentals to accommodate your stay! We hope you can come back for a future visit soon!

8/6/2 Manager response UPDATE;
Our Maintenance will be checking the Sonic repellants to see if they are still working and if not, they will be replaced and the owners are working on getting new screens for all the windows however there is a wait time of five weeks manufacturing. We hope to have the new screens in September.!

8/14/21 Manager UPDATE: There ae now brand new screens on all of the windows.

This was a cozy home away from home. We enjoyed the various spaces available and especially loved the oversize windows and overall design of the home - which was clearly designed for the lot. My husband used the office for his laptop. We used the cozy sunken living room space to watch some some PGA golf one afternoon. The kitchen was spacious and nice - also used the family room for family chats. The location was great - could hear the ocean from the cozy decks - but enjoyed being out of the downtown area. We enjoyed being a quick 3 minute drive to town (could walk if we didn't have a bit of mobility issues) We took great care as always with our St Bernard and it was so nice that she was welcome. I loved the accommodations, the location, and the kindness and care from Sunset and it felt like - the owners. People in town were lovely and don't miss the pet store! We hope to stay here again - for longer next time. (meant to also share that the property was spotless which means a lot to me)

Second trip to Foswell and we love the house and location. Very clean and all of the kitchen tools you need. We love the split layout with the deck in between. Used the house for remote work and the wireless was able to handle streaming video, etc. for meetings very well. We'll certainly stay again.

We love this house, and Manzanita. It's a bit of a walk from downtown, which makes it quieter. Good house for dogs and humans. Well-equipped. Full of light, even on a gray day.

Nice stay, the management company is very good. We had an issue where our dog scratched up a rug, and the management company dealt with it very well. Much appreciated.

House is odd in that there are two structures, separated by a courtyard. Each has its own baths etc. Not clear from the listing, not a problem, but would have been good to know ahead of time.

Appliances are older, though the kitchen has all the pots, pans and tools you'd expect.

Some odd requests like bagging all the laundry in individually marked bags and starting loads, not sure if these are COVID procedures or normal. Not a problem, just unusual.

House was well located and close to town. It was also super clean. Our biggest issue is that the second bedroom is detached from the home and smelled weird. We decided not to use it and just stay in the main part of the home. My recommendation is to put some work into making the detached bedroom cozier and inviting. Upgrade the carpet so it smells better in there. The only reason why I wouldn’t recommend this property is due the second bedroom smell, flooring and it being detached.

Foswell was a wonderful place to stay for a long weekend at the coast. The great room was the highlight—a cozy place to gather for meals, read and play board games. It gets great light during the day and feels private at night.

We only used the main bedroom in the house and the mattress left something to be desired (very springy)—this is our only negative comment for an otherwise terrific spot. The property description is accurate—the kitchen is fully stocked and the dog run was a bonus for letting our two dogs out to pee in the mornings!

Great place for our dog! Lots of dog towels and sheets for the furniture. I kitchen is well equiped, but the oven doesn't heat evenly.

The bed in the annex needs a better mattress cover. It was a really uncomfortable bed.

Relaxing, quiet, dog-friendly, well-equipped kitchen, sparkling clean home about a 10 minute walk from the beach (uphill on the way back). Worked well for 2 couples (separate bedroom and full bath across deck from main house - bring slippers). Easy no-contact pickup and return of keys.

We loved the location of the home as it was an easy walk to town and the beach. The open kitchen/dining/living space was wonderful. Bedrooms worked well and beds were comfortable. We appreciated the extra dog towels as we loved walking the beach! We wish there was a light by the steps to the back of the garage where the dog walk was , at night you could not see at all.

We loved the location and access to town and the beach. The kitchen/living/dining area was roomy and very workable. Master bedroom and bath worked well for us. Beds were comfortable which was great since we were there for an extended vacation. We would recommend this home to others and look forward to coming back!

The house is a quiet retreat located up hill from town. The yard is not completely fenced even though it appears to be . Our dog escaped several times out the back. Very stressful . Please have a warning to dog owners about this or fence the side yard. The master bed is really uncomfortable and dated. The jetted tub does not work. The kitchen is well equipped but the right front element on the stove does not work. Lighting over the stove terrible. We liked sitting out on the deck looking at the forest with neighboring houses well disguised by foliage. The charcoal barbecue was very clean. We enjoyed some of the many board games but found the TV impossible to operate. Very confusing remotes. The whole house could do with updated furniture, better linens and a new master tub.

Manager's Response

Thank you for your review. We appreciate the feedback. The house is not listed as being fully fenced just an enclosed dog run. The mattresses on the beds were replaced 2 years ago and are unfortunately based on what your preference for what comfortable might be. We are sorry it did not suit your needs for your stay. The owner's don't list the house as having a jetted tub due to the fact that when it is used it will empty the water heater and it takes awhile to refill/reheat for any other uses. It is operable just not advertised for that reason.. We are here 7 days a week so please call us during your stay next time if there are lights out or if an element doesn't work and we will address it immediately for you. We have a full time maintenance staff available for those reasons. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the location and the quiet neighborhood where Foswell is located.

Love the location

Cute place in the woods but super easy to walk to town. Furnishings a little dated but kitchen is well stocked, there are tons of games, books, etc. We didn’t love the layout. There’s quite a bit of space in the main house but only one true bedroom. The family room off the hallway has a futon (and a sliding door for privacy) and the main family room has a sleeper sofa but it would be odd to have someone sleep there since it’s basically in the kitchen area. The detached cottage has a Murphy bed and bathroom but the room only has one window and got pretty hot. Small fenced area outside was great for our dog. Everything was very clean and tidy but there were a lot of cobwebs in the skylights. Bed in master bedroom was so-so and the bedspread on there could use an update.

2 master bedrooms!

We brought our daughter, son-in-law and grand kids here for a long weekend. The house is walking distance to town and the beach, in a quiet area. The layout of the house was perfect in that it has a bedroom with attached bath that is separate from the main house. The grand kids slept in the main house with us, while our daughter, who just had surgery, got some much needed late mornings in the separate bedroom. Would definitely visit this house again!

Our family has been coming to Manzanita four or five times a year since 2001, and we have stayed in many homes in the town. Foswell is by far and away our most favorite spot to visit, in any season. The layout of the home is unbeatable for socializing. The long bar and kitchen, open next to a living and dining space, draw guests to gather around while meals are prepared. We've worked puzzles or played board games at the dining room table and still felt that we were in the middle of the action. The big corner windows in the living area are perfect for gazing, through both misty rain and tree-filtered sunshine. I've read countless novels there. In the summer the deck between the main home and the 'granny flat' across the landing is ideal for gathering to catch the sun or barbecue, or enjoy a cocktail while the sun goes down. We have brought friends to stay many times as well, and the separate accommodation space offers the right amount of privacy, while still allowing for easy access to the main home- you never feel that you'll wake others up when you go across to make coffee in the morning! The house is filled with the generous architecture that you only seem to find at the beach, lots of quirky alcoves and window shapes, which add up to a beautifully bright home that feels as though it is sitting in the treetops. It is a truly special and magical retreat.

Our family loves staying at Foswell. The open kitchen and dining area are great for everyone having space to interact and spread out. The TV room is cozy and a great space for kiddos to crash out on the couches. The master bedroom has a lovely jacuzzi tub, which is very inviting.We appreciate having the separate space across the way, as it makes it easy for a group to share the house and still have a spot to retreat. We also love that it is a quick walk to the beach or town.Highly recommend!

Great for families and their pets

Our latest stay at Foswell was with family and their dogs. The guest suite across the inner courtyard was heaven-sent with family able to escape when needed, and the dog run is perfect for letting our beasts out for a little sniff in the morning prior to the walk on the beach (which is pretty close, about four blocks). We spent most of our time in the kitchen, dining room, living room area where we sat around cooking and talking and playing board games on the big dining table (really nice and big - owners have extra chairs in the little staging room off the kitchen). Speaking of the little room, that's ideally clutter free, where we were able to keep all the stuff we brought for our week at the beach. I would highly recommend this house.
