Wonderful location in a picturesque locale
Rating Details: The property manager was somewhat unhelpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The Valentine's House is perfectly situated, just a block from the jawdropping beach (go in the evening for stunning views of the sunset) and several blocks from the main strip. Our family (two adults and an infant) found the house well-suited for our basic needs: lots of space; fully carpeted, which was great for the almost-crawler; and relaxing. The home has wonderful windows and skylights, which made the space feel airy and bright, even when we had rainy weather or in the evening. We had a few challenges with the home, mainly that the kitchen has flatewear, serving dishes, and basic cookwear, but you need to bring in EVERYTHING to cook with, even basic olive oil, salt/pepper, coffee, filters, tea, etc. Some cleaning supplies (dish liquid, laundry detergent) are provided, but things like all-purpose spray and dryer sheets weren't provided. I suggest buying all of this on your way to Manzanita, as the local stores offer very little in the way of variety and what they do offer is priced very, very high. Both bathrooms are ample, but the towels and washcloths felt rough to the touch. It would be nice if these were updated and the beds weren't so hard (even with the pillowtop mattress covers, they feel like solid rock!). Directions on where to park would be helpful, too. There are some mold stains in the shower stall, but these look to be contained. Even with these minor inconveniences, we enjoyed the Valentine's House, and would return.
