This was the perfect place for a weekend get-away in Manzanita! A quick 5 minute walk to the beach, coffee shop, and the local market. This quiet neighborhood was a nice retreat after spending the days exploring near-by towns. The home was very clean, and comfortable for two people. Beds were comfy, and the seating area and kitchen felt homey. While there weren't lots of "extras" in the kitchen, the local market had everything we needed. We'd loved out stay!

This was our first time renting a vacation home and we absolutely loved it! This particular house was super clean and very cozy. An added bonus was the back yard...very serene and peaceful with just the right amount of decorations. We love the town of Manzanita and this stay made it all the more enjoyable. Appreciated the fully stocked kitchen as well. We will be back.

The house was perfect. The yard was perfect for our dogs. It was well equipped with everything that we needed. Close risk to town and then each. Our only complaint was the neighbors next door had loud parties both nights till 2 AM.

We really enjoyed our time at the Grey Whale Cove. It's a very clean home, with a open and functional layout and has everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay. Great outdoor spaces, we spent a lot of time in the lounge chairs, at the outdoor table. Also, the beds are incredibly comfortable, and one of the rooms even had a king bed. Perfect house for a small family - or possibly two couples, though there is only one bathroom. Only 2 blocks to the newer grocery store and Thai restaurant. Several blocks to the beach, but an easy walk and close to town. We loved our stay so much, we plan to rent again!

We liked the house. It rained so we didn't get to take advantage of the nice secluded yard and patio.We were never able to get the media to work , TV or music so we played games instead. My only real negative is that a hefty security deposit is non refundable regardless of whether or not there was any damage to the home. This is an unusual and unfair policy.

Delightful accommodations for the two of us and our dogs. Not too far from downtown, several blocks from the beach but still within "earshot" of the waves. Very comfortable beds which are hard to find at a rental. Just as advertised via photos!

The house is perfect for a quiet vacation. Absolutely no street noise! The private back yard is delightful! House is very comfortable and fully equipped with everything 4-6 guests would need. Lots of towels! Skylights enhance the living/kitchen area. Loved the king bed. The futon in the living room would be OK for a child or two, but not an adult.

Cute property, and a close walk to groceries. The beach was several blocks down, but that's why we come to Manzanita--to walk! The house had all the blenders, coffee grinders, beach towels, and wine glasses you could want. The outdoor furniture made using the patio a pleasure, and the wifi kept us connected with family. Very quiet neighborhood, and a relaxing stay. We will come back to this house again!

What a great place to stay in Manzanita! Gray Whale Cove is close to town, shops, the farmer's market, and an enjoyable walk to the best beach! The house is warm and inviting, clean, and has a great garden for the dogs. We will definitely be back!

With a second stay at Gray Whale Cove all 4 of us (my sister, myself, & our husbands) recommend it heartily. Not only is the cottage absolutely clean, well-furnished, and attractive but it's a great location in Manzanita for walking to the beach or restaurants & shops--we are enthusiastic walkers--& an easy drive to good eateries further afield in Wheeler & Cannon Beach. The large, comfortable back patio is a real plus, sheltered & catches the sun. We all love the cottage, the long stretch of beach, & low-key, less crowded Manzanita, our favorite beach town on the north coast.

The house was very nice, clean and ready to enjoy upon arrival. The location is a short walk to the main street in town for shops and restaurants. It's also close enough to the beach. Also, the patio would be great for a small party.

This property is one of my favorites! The beds are cozy. ... and there is not a bad seat in the house. The only complaint I have, would be the $50.00 non-refundable deposit. I think if there are no damages, the renter should get that money returned. Just another way for rental companies to make an easy buck. Next time we'll end up booking through a different agency.

Gray Whale Cove does have WiFi and the code is listed on the arrival/directions sheet. However the house book wasn't updated and still had that the home did not have WiFi. We apologize.

The Grey Whale house was the perfect off beach rental. Walking distance to the ocean and downtown Manzanita, its cheerful colors and open floor plan were perfect for our little autumn weekend away. We were very happy to have a BBQ is use as well as a nicely stocked kitchen - as many rentals you go to have a poor selection of cooking utensils. Everything was clean and comfortable and the backyard is gorgeous! The perfect space.

For the 4 of us--my husband & I & my sister & her husband--Gray Whale Cove was just right: absolutely clean & neat, comfortable, very comfy beds, convenient walking distance (we are walkers), everything in kitchen that we needed; an attractive property; good size pretty sheltered back patio with some sun & some shade. The one bathroom was not an issue, as it's right next to both bedrooms. A kitchen table to seat the 4 of us would have been nice, but other than that it was just about perfect. We'll definitely want to rent again when we head to Manzanita.

The house is the perfect size for family. Or for two couples. Once there, you can walk to nearly anything you want in Manzanita including the beach, coffee shops, grocery stores, city park and playground. Beautiful cottage overall with lovely and well maintained backyard and patio, very private as well.

My stay was fine, but I wanted to make sure you knew that there is a leak in the skylight nearest the front door. During a 5-hour rainy spell, we were out of the home. When we returned, we saw that water had dripped from that skylight onto the round pillow on top of the wicker footstool. I dried it out. The ceiling shows some signs that this has happened before and it should be repaired as soon as possible to prevent further ceiling damage.<br/>Everything with our stay was fine. I like larger, better beds, but I realize it's hard to have a king-size bed in a relatively small bedroom.

Thank you for letting us know. The owners have already been in and are in the process of having it fixed.
