Excellent view, excellent unit, excellent host/owner
Can't say enough about Martin, and the attention to detail in the HomeAway app he has. The place is so perfectly locasted for Seaside, and the view? Fabulous. We took advantage of the BBQ a couple of times, and the full kitchen was terrific for cooking up breakfast, or a quick lunch. The place is located perfectly for a short stroll to a restaurant, which we did a few times. We were there, obviously, at the end of the main high season. The first few days were very busy at the turnaround, which you can see from the balcony. A hot-rod show was in town for the weekend, and it was fun watching them go around the circle. After the weekend, though, it really was very quiet. Some businesses weren't even open then (the put put golf, or bumper cars, etc.). Guess that's more seasonal. The restaurants were all open, but not overcrowded, which was nice. We're not into the WorldMark/Wyndham timeshare stuff - just were looking for a great place to stay . . . which this definitely is. If you've ever been to any timeshare they are all the same. You have to say no lots of times to get the point across you're not interested in their presentation, but once you make it through the gauntlet at the beginning, you've made it , and you can enjoy the rest of your stay. (Obviously, we did NOT go to the sales presentation). We had the best time. Again, spent a full week and enjoyed Seaside, the beach, the prom, restaurants, even the grocery store, Cannon Beach, and just getting away from it all. Even the foggy beach for a few days was kind of a treat - something we don't normally see (well, not up close anyway). This felt so very much like our home away from home, and in our opinion that is about a high a recommendation we can possibly give. Many thanks to Martin for offering his wonderful place on VRBO/HomeAway so others can enjoy it when they're not there. We would definitely go back again and stay in this unit specifically. Not sure when that will be, as we tend to like to go to various places. But if we do want to go back to Seaside, this is certainly on the top of our list.
