Location, location, location! Just steps from the beach, we had a great view of the ocean from the patio where we sat for coffee in the morning and enjoyed a lovely dinner of our freshly caught fish from our deep water fishing expedition. Simple interior-- a bit kitchy, a bit of our youth-- cute and comfortable. My husband and I pushed the twin beds together and I can honestly say that they were in the top 5 in terms of most comfy beds I've every slept in. Kitchen had the gadgets and cooking equipment that we needed to make dinner. Next door neighbors were not around over Memorial Day weekend, which made the beach seem like it belonged to us. The street is only 1 block long and the other neighbors were friendly; everyone was clearly in vacation "happy" mode! Nothing bad to say about the property. If you are looking for fancy, look elsewhere. This is a simple, well cared for property and will suit the needs of most guests. Thank you for sharing your cottage with us! It was our first time in Oregon and it was a terrific vacation with friends and this cottage was the perfect landing spot at the end of a delightful and exhausting day!

The house was warm and cozy, it had every thing we could possibly need to cook with . The beach was close and we had a good view of the waves and <br/>ocean. It's a quiet street ,which was nice. <br/>We hope to come back soon.

I had saved this cute little cottage on another site over a year ago and had planned on renting it in the future. VRBO was much more affordable. This is a great 2 bedroom vacation rental just steps to the beach. The place is much cuter in person and some updates have been done and that was a pleasant surprise. I would love to make this our yearly home retreat but the guest limit of 4 does not give us the opportunity to rent this cozy cottage again, unfortunately. If you need internet, which EVERY other rental provides, there is no service provided here. There are wifi spots in town which we did utilize and the chamber of commerce was very helpful, but would have been nice to have internet. It is a dog-only friendly rental, but the carpet could have been vacuumed better as there was dog hair that would stick to our clothes if left on the carpet and the toilet continuously ran as it probably had a fill valve leak, not noisy, but costly to the owner. The kitchen had every imaginable tool you could think of, even if you wanted to prepare a holiday meal. <br/><br/>Pros: Close to the beach, well-stocked <br/><br/>Cons: No internet, could use a little more carpet attention, Max 4 guest limit<br/>

Managers Response

So glad that you enjoyed your stay at the By the Sea! We are attempting to get all our homeowners on board with getting WIFI, as there are few that don't have it yet. I have passed on the information about the carpets and the constantly running toilet and will have these issues addressed immediately, thank you for making us aware of them. Sunset Vacation Rentals looks forward to assisting you with any future reservations!

We used this home as overflow from our Family reunion that we held across the street. This home looks small but is very open and nice inside and accommodated 12 adults easily for evening meetings, games and talking, with the children watching a movie across the street. It is very close to the ocean and was perfect in every way for what we needed!

It is always great to hear that By The Sea was able to accommodate you in every way you needed. Sunset Vacation Rentals would love to help you plan your next trip to the beach.

Overall, we had an enjoyable time. The cottage is very dated, but the location and privacy make up for it. It would have been nice to know that the 1.5 bathrooms didn't include a bathtub, making it very difficult to give our 1-year old a bath after spending the day in the sand. The pictures we saw implied that the cottage was directly in the beach, however that wasn't the case and there was another house in between. Knowing what we know now, we'd still likely return next year.

Managers Response

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. We will update the wording on the description to better clarify the Shower Only bathroom and the location. We hope we can help you plan your next vacation here at the beach.

This place is in a great spot, on a quiet end of town just two doors down from the beach. You can watch the waves while reading a book from the living room, or wile sitting on the porch. The house is bigger than it looks and had plenty of room.

We had an incredibly relaxing weekend for Mother's Day in Rockaway and loved staying at By The Sea! We could hear the ocean at night and relax on the porch in perfect view of the waves (when we weren't down on the sand!). The house had everything we needed, was laid out perfectly and felt cozy and inviting -- we will be back for many more visits!!!!

My family had a wonderful time in this charming cottage. My dog had an even better time! The cottage was clean and quite spacious and very dog & kid friendly. I loved the cabinets in the kitchen and living room. We were just a few steps from the beautiful beach and fell asleep listening to the surf. It was wonderful. We can't wait to come back!

We spent a week at By the Sea for Christmas. This was our second time. The beach house is very cozy, very warm and inviting. Some of the amenities are showing some age,such as the VCR or the dishwasher which was really noisy. However, if you are looking for a nice place to stay that is relatively inexpensive and is right next to the beach, (though not directly on it) this is a great deal. <br/><br/>We will probably return, a great place to spend the holiday with family. <br/><br/>

The best part about house was the location to the beach! House is dated, so if you're looking for something extravagant, keep on looking. The size is for a small family. Only one small shower, so it's not ideal for more than 3 or 4 people. If you want a budget rental that is cozy and near the beach, this isn't a bad place. We had a pleasant time and overall enjoyed our stay.

Managers Response

Thank you for your review of By the Sea. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. If you are planning to come down again with a larger group we would love to send you some other options that would work better for you. This a a great unit for a couple or small family.

Completely enjoyed staying in this rustic little cabin by the sea! This is not a luxury beach home, so if that is what you are looking for stay away... but if you would like to stay in a simple well maintained home a stone's throw from the sand this is the place! I loved that the art and furniture, though not new, was obviously deliberately curated for the space. The beds were comfortable, and the home was very clean, with fresh paint, etc. Certainly a good value! The only thing that I would change would be the addtition of some doors or curtains on the lower kitchen shelves as they are just left open. Good for easy access but not so great family of four will be back!

It was a fun and relaxing vacation. The beach was such a short walk that it was easy to carry all the things my family needed to each a day on the beach. My 2 children and my dog absolutely enjoyed the beach the must. The cottage had everything we needed and was very comfortable to stay in.

the only problems we had was the washing machine wouldn't open when we left, then my husband went back in and it opened. so I don't know if you just had to wait 5-10 min until it opens. I think the directions on it could have been a little more clear.

This was our annual family reunion beach trip to Rockaway. We have been going there for 50 plus years staying in various cabins. By the Sea was in a great location and had everything we needed. We were a little disappointed we did not have cable for 3 1/2 days, but the movies that were in the house saved us! And we visited more with our grown up children. We will keep this one in mind for next year, however, our family is growing with 2 new grandchildren on the way and we may need something bigger! We really liked the location of this house, the beach was so close, it was wonderful!

The house was nice and cozy with a comfortable bed, plenty of clean towels and a well equipped kitchen. The only negative was that the front windows did not have any kind of privacy curtains and while the house is located on a quiet street, it would still be nice to have a bit more privacy at night. We ended up putting blankets over the wicker shades so it all worked out just fine. We would return to this home in the future.

We stayed a week at Rockaway Beach in Oregon in the By the Sea cabin. It was a great stay. The cabin was warm and cozy, more comfortable than it first appeared when we first got there. The view of the beach is not direct, but it is visible from the dinner table quite easily. You are about 50 yds from the beach, with other houses in the path, but if the view is not your primary reason for going to the beach, it is just fine. Beach access is very close and accessible. <br/><br/><br/>There were a couple of very minor problems (the lighting was not good and overall the place was a bit dark for reading),but overall it was a very nice place, clean and warm for December in Oregon. <br/>The kitchen was well stocked with appliances, as was the laundry room. Every room had a TV although we made little use of them. <br/><br/>We would go back (and probably will) and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a bit of beach time in the off season.

The size is perfect for four and a small dog. A vintage feeling kitchen with pretty much all that you need to cook meals. Incredible access to beach. Quite little street, very local feel. Perhaps there could be a few instructions on using the VCR and DVD player. Other than that it was great! We'll definitely be returning..

I stayed in the rental for 3 nights in August, 2012. The house exceeded my expectations! As previous people mentioned, almost everything is antique-old there and has a slight smell that can be fixed by opening windows, however, everything is functional and the house a certain charm to it. I found plenty of kitchen appliances - coffee maker, new toaster oven, toaster, hand mixer, even deep fryer, though had to improvise with pans. I understand people ruin nonstick pans fast, so it's probably hard to keep up with getting new ones. I found some spices, flour, sugar, probably leftover from the previous vacationers. This place even had a grill on the porch, which I was very excited to see! The listing and agent said - no grill. My husband and his friend fell in love with the very comfortable couch and were wondering where they could get the same one for themselves :) House is generally clean, but things like fans and doors, windows could use an occasional wipe down.<br/>The highlights for me where the great view of the ocean from the big windows in the front room and the master bedroom, the grill, washer/dryer; all-in-all its a cute comfortable house. Location is great, a few steps from the beach, on the outskirts of the town which meant, cleaner sand, less people; not so close, but still within walk-able distance to downtown and the tiny grocery store. The main TV is upgraded to a flat screen, has basic channels; it would have been very nice to have internet.<br/>One thing to note next time, bring your own food! Restaurants in town were overpriced and not-so great/old food, many places close at 5pm so have dinner early, other places opened and closed randomly... The only grocery store is very minimal and overpriced; if you are planning to have a bonfire on the beach, get wood on the way to town since grocery store sells it for $7/bundle. The fun thing to do in town is take the sightseeing train ride to Garibaldi. <br/>BIG THANK YOU to the owners of the house for sharin

We enjoyed the cabin very much. The view of the ocean was great and just a short walk and you're on the beach! The only thing that would have improved the stay was if yiu had fewer dining chairs and more comfortable living room chairs. And possibly a dvd player. In the winter there isn't much porch sitting. But overall it was great and I have already recommended it to friends.

Owner's neice (or so she said) was found one day in the property having accessed it with her own key. Said she was looking for her uncle's guitar. They were staying directly next door in the adjacent house. I found this uninvited access into a rented property to be totally inappropriate. Owner's or their families should be required to knock (waiting until renters are in the house) and request entry like any other visitor whenever the property is occupied. She seemed surprised that we came just as she was in the house.

Managers Response

We apologize that this happened to you during your stay. This issue was brought to the owners attention (they live out of state) and they put a stop to it immediately.

the house was great, except for the lousy living room furniture. the couch had a twin mattress for the seat, covered with old fabric to make it look like a real couch. there was no place where we felt comfortable enough to sit down on the furniture. the couch and surrounding chairs are old and dirty, and should be trashed. they look like they were picked up from a free pile, and then covered with matching fabric.<br/><br/>otherwise, the house is lovely. the washer and dryer are wonderful, the bedrooms and bathrooms clean, and the location is unbeatable - so close to the beach, jetty fishery, tillamook. we want to go back, but only if the living room furniture gets swapped out.

Nice and close to the ocean. It was great to walk up off the beach, past a few houses and then to this house (less than 100 yards) to wash off feet outside on the deck. It is obvious the owners have put effort into upgrading the house itself. Nicely done on the "water closet" in the master bedroom. The next step will be to upgrade the furnishings (the one weak link to this property). It was fun and we would recommend it to friends.

The only negative item was that when we arrived we found two very old towels in a cupboard. Later I found wet towels in the dryer, and a set of sheets and the bathroom rugs together in the washer, wet. It took quite a bit of time to get them all dry. Also, I don't feel that guests should have to wash their bedding and towels, that should be part of the what we're paying per night. On a more positive note, we had an absolutely wonderful stay on the Oregon coast. We would love to come back again to this property.<br/><br/>Thank you for asking about our stay.

Managers Response

We apologize for the wet laundry. The cleaners were cleaning 2 houses that day and were going back and forth switching out laundry and unfortunately didn't get it finished before your check in. We only ask that you strip the beds and start a load of laundry; you definitely do not need to do all of the laundry unless you have the time to do so. I am glad you had a great stay and we definitely hope to see you again!
