4/5 Good

As advertised on the the website
The house was as advertised on the website to a T . Great location and very comfortable. Great view of the ocean from the deck. A short walk to the beach. The property management could pay closer attention to the cleanliness. Although it wasn’t bad, it could have been better. Will be back again.

5/5 Excellent

Just what we were looking for!
Great little neighborhood right by the beach. We truly enjoyed this quiet little place away from busy holiday traffic.

4/5 Good

Great house; mediocre management
This property is in a beautiful spot and is basically as described in the listing--it's a great place to spend a relaxing vacation on the Oregon Coast. That said, the property management leaves a bit to be desired. The problem started when I didn't receive a code to get into the property. I sent the manager a message through VRBO about 36 hours before the beginning of the reservation and didn't get a response. Then I got a text message (purporting to be from the manager) saying that the house had been cleaned. I responded to the text, asking about the code, but still didn't get a reply. It took about 45 minutes on the phone with VRBO (a few hours before we were going to leave town) to sort out that mess. Once we got to the property, there were only a few small problems. First, the instructions we got from the manager contained the wrong wifi password. I again responded to the text message asking about the wifi, but received only silence in response (eventually we discovered a small piece of paper in the dining room with the correct password). The property was advertised as including a DVD player. There were actually 2 DVD players, both of which were broken. While mildly annoying (given the price we paid), these problems certainly didn't prevent us from having a great time. I'm left with the impression that this is a pure investment property, with contract management that isn't particularly focused on the guest experience. That's not to say you shouldn't rent this place--it's comfortable and the location can't be beat. But if you have a choice between this and a comparable property that's owner-managed, go with the other one.

4/5 Good

Great location
We enjoyed our stay at the Heron’s nest. Beautiful beach, not crowded. Home was comfortable and had everything we needed.

5/5 Excellent

Nice getaway
We enjoyed the house and the quiet neighborhood near the beach. We loved the fire pit out back.
