Better than we thought
This house looked good in the photos and the reviews, but the good news is that its better than the photos show. It is clean, bright and well-kept with large windows throughout. The view of the ocean, although not oceanfront is clear from the living room, dining room, kitchen and the upper deck in the backyard. Its great to have laundry facilities and an extra shower. There are games and comfy furniture and a very well equipped kitchen. Its simple and comfy, so if you're looking for something really fancy and upscale, this isn't for you, but its sweet and well maintained and even has beachy decor and a very relaxed homey feel. Its a great place for the price, which is very reasonable. Also, the beach is very close and interesting. It's sandy when the tide is low and rocky when the tide is in. But its very scenic and different from any other beach around. Its about a mile and a half walk to Arch Cape and really nice to take that walk in low tide conditions. In the evening when the tide was coming in, we made a bonfire on the rocks and enjoyed the sunset from there. It was quite perfect since we were protected from both sand and incoming ocean. We went to close-by Manzanita for groceries and to the farmer's market on Friday evening. That was fun! Music and good food. Highly recommended. (perhaps it's summer only?) We are looking forward to a return visit. Oh, yeah, did I say that it was quite roomy, with 3 bedrooms and a small extra room at the back of the house where you can exercise, nap, do yoga or bed down some people on the floor. OK, I guess that's enough compliments to a lovely house. Thanks, Dee!
