Great location. House had all it needed (except coffee). Appreciated outdoor hose with warm water to rinse the sand off. Upstairs got a little warm but opening windows helped.
Comfortable house in a convenient location to walk everywhere. Beach access was close and walking paths around the community were a plus. Quiet neighborhood. Wish there had been some cooking staples available - salt, pepper. Also, more than one coffee cup would have been nice. Overall, I would stay again and appreciated the few days of respite, despite the rain!
Molly, we are so glad that we succeeded in making your travel experience a memorable one and we appreciate you letting us know how we can improve. We have shared your feedback with the owner for consideration, and we look forward to welcoming you back during your next stay in the area!
Clean also Well stocked with towels, dishes and cook ware !!
Rented this so we could bring our dog. Some of issues noted in prior reviews have clearly been addressed, others have not. We loved the 3-sided fireplace and there was a moveable screen to protect. No issues with Wi-Fi anywhere in the house. Hot tub was fine. Still needing work:
1) Instructions for operating TV...we were able to blunder our way through but there was a delay between pushing buttons and TV response so it was definitely a test of patience.
2) Oven/stove needs replacing. Glass top is cracked and oven light is out.
3) A few more herbs and spices would be nice.
4) Dryer is dated and had trouble drying our dog towels.
And we agree with someone else who said bring your own pillows.
We're glad you stayed with us, Julie, and appreciate your review. A new stove has been installed in the home. The dryer hose was pinched and has been readjusted. Thank you!
We had a great time. Thank you:)
So, we rented this house to house my bridal party, their significant others, and eventually myself and my husband (still so fun to type that word). It was spacious, clean, and the hot tub was to die for.
I was worried about the more recent reviews, I won't lie. But I'm not sure what happened with their experience because we all had a wonderful time!
The internet was a little wonky at times, but because we were out and about the majority of the day anyway, that didn't highly impact our stay. So, no harm and no foul there for us!
The bikes in the garage are darling and we rode one to the beach! There is one with a broken chain, so be weary of that one.
If I could give any feedback it would be: The house is a LITTLE close to the main road, so keep an eye on your pet if you bring one. Please keep your dog on a leash if you let them out in the back as there is no fence as a barrier between the back patio and the road. But sound wise, it was barely noticeable! Just a safety tip for everyone :)
And lastly, the lock box needs oiled or something? It was pretty hard for a few of us to get into.
We had an incredible time and I am so happy this place was available to us to house our closest friends for the best day of our lives :)
Hi Kelsey, Congratulations on the wedding! We are honored that you chose us to host you for your big day! We have let the local manager know about the broken bike so that they may look into getting it repaired or replaced. We have also let them know about the lock so that they can look into making it easier to open. We look forward to hosting you again soon!
Very dirty; understocked kitchen. Entire house needs updating. Pics on website must be 10-12 years old. Disappointed!!
Okay. I’m am going to try to keep my emotions at bay and simply state the facts of our stay.
It’s a nice location for walking access to the beach.
Horrible smell of dog and urine that you sense immediately upon opening the door.
Internet is 100% unreliable and only occasionally accessible, which is limited to the living room.
The oven door broke so it was protruding out into the tight kitchen hallway, causing us to hit our shins on the open door.
The dining room chair broke while our child was sitting on it. The seat fell through the chair.
The downstairs toilet didn’t flush properly and overflowed.
The upstairs (bunk-bed) bathroom only produced cold water.
There are extremely limited kitchen utensils. If you plan to cook or bake, bring your own supplies. Pans, knives, baking sheets, mixer, blender, etc…
The couch is slimy and smelly. We had to put blankets down and avoid sitting in the right corner.
All of the lights flicker.
There are several stains on the carpet, wood furniture, and couch.
Most of the dishes are chipped, but some of that is expected in a rental.
The fireplace has no protection from the very hot glass. NOT good for kids or curious pets.
The ice maker is inconsistent and makes loud, startling noises, as does the downstairs bathroom.
The hot tub and deck are about 6 yards from highway 101 and facing the road.
We will not return or recommend this property. Oh, and it’s way overpriced for what you get.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, Brooke. We apologize that we dropped the ball, as this is not the high standard of guest satisfaction and cleanliness that we hold ourselves to. We are very sorry about the issues you encountered in our home. We confirm the carpets will be deep cleaned, the broken items have been removed and the lights have been fixed. Our maintenance and housekeeping teams have been dispatched to the home to address the other issues you encountered and improve the home for our next renters. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope we have the chance to impress you in the future.
Great time with the family.
Good: Location, general layout, dog friendly, plenty of dishes/silverware, small appliances that were in good order (blender, waffle iron, etc.), reading materials/games,
quiet (despite being a duplex with neighbors and proximity to road), hot tub,
and booking communication.
Less Good: Small things that added up.
For example, no instructions for unique house things: how the doors lock (very different), garbage/recycling (you can take recyclables to the transfer station in town I learned), TV use (but maybe not working?), hot tub, etc. All of this could have been simply addressed with a note on the fridge.
And general maintenance/upkeep could use detail such as lightbulbs out, can opener well past useful life, oh the kitchen faucet! (it will spray you at some point), and the bunk beds (very wobbly so the kids kept each other up). Lastly, as others had mentioned-only put early risers in the master (even on an overcast day-it was an early wake up due to skylight).
And the pillows (suggest bringing your own if you can). The ones here were described by one of our party as like “sleeping on a folded up towel.”
With all that said… would we stay here again? a solid maybe.
We enjoyed our stay at Sea la vie.
Just a good time overall.
The "master bedroom" is really a secondary bedroom with NO bathroom located at the front of the house. Sharing the 2nd bathroom with our kids is not appealing. It also has a skylight with no shade facing the bed so the morning light woke us up at 7am both days.
The real master bedroom (with master bathroom) is set-up as the "kids" room (bunk bed & 'boat' bed); it also has a skylight with no shade.
The 3rd bedroom with the crib smelled like (clean) diapers and baby powder.
The internet did not work the first 24hrs of our stay even after resetting the modem several times.
Checkout time was 10am which is way too early; extending the checkout time was not an option for this home on our trip.
If you like extra pillows for sleeping, bring some with you as there were no extra pillows outside of what was on the beds.
Overall the home is in a good location - the beach and Pelican brewing are walkable. Be aware that it does back to the main road, Cape Kiwanda Drive, so you will see & hear cars and pedestrians walking by when you are in the hot tub or on the back porch. Could not really hear any road noise from inside the home.
The home is comfortable and has a large dining room table which was great for playing games with the family. Vacasa beach towels were provide which was nice for the hot tub.
note: we did not cook while we were there so I can't really comment on the kitchen appointments.
Unfortunately, no bathroom in the "master" and the skylights with no shades are a deal killer for us.
Hi, David! We appreciate you leaving us such helpful feedback so we can continue to make improvements to the guest experience. The property manager will ask the homeowner for more pillows, and the internet has been verified as working correctly. Thank you!
House was great for our stay. The location to the beach is wonderful and close to restaurants and stores. We did run into a few issues- the fireplace was out of propane and we never received a response from the property manager when we contacted them to help fix it. We had a baby with us and the crib did not have a crib sheet on it, luckily, we brought an extra one. There was some cleanliness issues as well- two cooking pans were dirty with food particles crusted on them and there wasn’t enough dish soap provided for our length of stay/number of guests. The hot tub became increasingly murky and slimy during our stay. Would have been nice if it was kept up for our stay.
Other than that, it was a great place for a larger group.
Hello Melissa, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We did provide your valuable feedback to our local manager. We did service the hot tub before your stay; however, we will make sure it is working correctly. We are going to bring more propane to the home and provide two extra new crib sheets. We apologize that the home was not up to our high standard of cleanliness and guest satisfaction that we hold ourselves to. We do hope the partial refund will help you look back at this time with your family fondly. We hope we have the chance to host you again.
The house was easy to find and get into. Great location—quick walk to the beach! Everything was clean. The hot tub was not hot when we arrived but I believe it had just been emptied and cleaned so totally understandable and it warmed up by the first night. It was very nice to have a clean hot tub! Had a hard time turning on the fireplace but had excellent customer service when we called—the owner called us right back and we were able to get it turned on. The only issues were that there were not enough spoons in the kitchen and some of the bikes were in need of repairs. Thanks for a great stay!
Hi, Teresa! We are so grateful you stayed with us and are pleased you had a good time. We will add more kitchen utensils, and maintenance is repairing the bikes. Thank you!
This house is a great location to the beach!
We had a blast and the house was nice. The kids enjoyed the hot tub.
we had a very nice time, its close to the beach and walking distance or a bike ride to everything you need in Pacific City
The house was very clean and had all the necessities needed, lots of extra beds. The only thing was the washer did leak when we loaded some towels, and the check in process was a little confusing. Overall I would recommend this home!
Thank you for staying with us, Leticia! We are glad you enjoyed the home and we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We will work with our team to identify areas for improvement. We look forward to hosting you again!
The house was the perfect size for us and within walking distance to the beach and Cape Kiwanda. We liked the hot tub and the place was clean. Had a relaxing time and some unexpected sun breaks for this time of year.
house was in good shape, carpets were a bit traveled, but nothing unacceptable. Short walk to the beach and to town for pizza, burgers, tacos, etc. Great place :)
Pacific City is one of my favorite coastal spots in Oregon. I searched on different sites to find a beach house that met our needs. Going through Vacasa was organized and easy. The rental was absolutely gorgeous and had all the amenities we needed to have a home away-from-home. It was even better that this rental was a short walk away from the beach, and the space around it was manicured and clean. This rental property is attached to another (like a duplex townhouse) but we didn't even notice the other family during the trip besides the times we came face-to-face since we arrived at somewhat the same time. Noise on the other side of the house was not an issue whatsoever. We had a little difficulty getting access to the house key in the lock box but the number to call a helpline was easily displayed and there was actually someone whom we connected with to help us out over the phone and get us into the beach house. The trip could have started out a different way because we arrived after the front office working hours - but luckily it worked out with them having other forms of contact after hours. The rental property is located in a neighborhood of what seemed to be rental properties so there was a clean and manicured ambiance to the place. My family thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the rental property. We'll definitely plan on coming back in the future.
The home is in Shorepine Village which means it is nice and close to the beach and easy to get to the Pelican Brew Pub, pizza place and market. So, that is the good! The home was not very clean when we got into it. The dining room table was not wiped down, or not very well, the floors didn't seem like they got a good vacuuming, the trundle beds were broken (would not pull out properly) and the shades did not operating properly in the rooms. The BBQ grill needed a good cleaning/burn off as it looked to well used by the previous renters. The grill itself, a nice Weber gas grill, didn't have its automatic igniter system working so I had to go get matches to light the grill. The couch in the main living is a bit on the worn side so sitting on it for a length of time might get a bit uncomfy as the cushions are not as fluffy as they were at one time. The carpet up the stairs were a bit worn as well.
Big thumbs up on the hot tub!
All, in all, it was a good rental, not great. For the money, was expecting the condition of the place to be better than it was.
We apologize for these issues. Our maintenance team is working on the maintenance matters, and we have followed-up with our housekeeping team. Thank you!
Walking distance to Pelican Brewery. Located just over dunes from the beach!
There was lots of room for everyone to have a comfortable, relaxing time. Lots to do in the area for all age groups.
The set up for this house is great if you have one or two families. The master is set up as a kids room which can sleep 6 and the other two bedrooms have queen beds and one has a crib too!
Clean and well kept.
If you are only staying a few nights the side fees for this property are incredibly big. Keep this in mind when booking the property.
Amazing duplex, lots of space, in a cozy neighborhood. Short walk to the beach, coffee shop, and brewery!
We enjoyed our stay very much! Advertising the house more clearly as a split condo shared on one side may be helpful for others prior to booking. The house was tidy and linens were fresh, but we didn't have any small shampoos, soaps or bathroom amenities and only three rolls of toilet paper for both bathrooms for Friday- Sunday's stay with 9 people. Maybe the restocking was forgotten while cleaning before we arrived. The cookware under the stove had not been cleaned so preparing meals was more involved than we had planned. Overall, the place was great for housing a large group, and we loved our time in Pacific City.
Great little condo 5 minute walk to the ocean! Great that it is dog friendly too:) VERY CLEAN! Nice hot tub:) A little under supplied however - hope the owner/property manager adds a few things that were lacking...(hangers, soap, scratch paper, dish towels, basic cleaning supplies, fans and guest book!!)
The owner has purchased these items and put them in the home!
Well furnished, Clean, Kitchen was stocked with adequate kitchenware to make you feel at home.
Convenient location to beach access, restaurants and surf shop. Tide pools and dramatic cliffs to explore are only a short walk from the house. Climb the giant sanddune for amazing views.
Super cute duplex! Close to the beach. Has most amenities you need! Lots of games, hot tub, garage with bikes, and a 5 minute walk to the beach:) can't ask for more. Highly recommend!
This was perfect for our family and my daughter's friends. It's the perfect location, within walking distance from shops, restaurants, and the beach. We had a blast and would definitely stay there again!
Due to a scheduling glitch, we ended up at the Sea La Vie. It worked OK for my family and our two dogs. It was comfortable, however, the kitchen was really lacking in cookware and had no basic amenities - not even a salt and pepper shaker. The WiFi router is in the back bedroom... on the opposite side of the place from the TV. This made watching Netflix difficult because it cut out constantly. It was also hard to use the WiFi from the family room at all. The beds were comfortable and my girls loved the "boat bed". It would be great for a group with lots of kids though. You can sleep 6 kids in the "bunk room" alone. It was a little odd not having a "master" bedroom with an on-suite bathroom but it worked OK for us.
We were very comfortable in this home. Bring the little things like salt and pepper for cooking. GREAT cooking utensils but had no basic cooking extras. It's a pretty dim/dark home but that can be fixed. Our family would absolutely stay here again. Great location. 10 minute walk on the beach to reach the brewery. Nice quiet neighborhood. Matt, the maintenance manager was very helpful and willing to help if we needed it, we chose not to bug him about the lights that were burnt out but I'm very positive he would have brought some over. The only reason not to rave about this place is because I want it to be available for us when we come stay again.
I loved this condo, my family loves the bikes, the hot tub and how close to the beach we were!
We spent two nights here and it was the best experiance. It was so comfortable like we had lived there for years. They had thought of everything we could possibly need for cooking, relaxing, or entertaining and there is a little store withing walking distance for griceries. The neighborhood was quiet and well thought out. There is a walking trail right to the beach and our 2 dogs were very comfortable. There is so much to love about this place!
Great, cute place to stay. A lot of amenities. Liked the warm water faucet outside to clean feet off. Comfortable beds, wish they were king size. We have tall husbands. Loved we could walk to the beach and town. Kids loved their room and we had 7 between two families!
Really a nice home in a safe neighborhood with great beach access.
This house is a great location and in great area close to all. However, the house was very dirty and when we walked in it felt as if only the sheets and towels were changed from the previous guests. Sand in kids trundle beds. Floors very dirty, kitchen counters very dirty. I would not stay at this house again.
We will work with housekeeping on reaching our high Vacasa cleanliness standards. We apologize that guests did not find the home in better condition upon arrival.
With a beautiful view and walk to the beach, Sea La Vie was a phenomenal stay for my friends and I. We were in town for a wedding and this house is walking distance to multiple delicious restaurants, fun breweries and the dunes!
The house also boasted plenty of space for my friends and I. Not to mention the hot tub and back patio were probably the most popular attraction for us this past weekend.
I highly recommend this property to any of you staying in Pacific City. If you need multiple houses, this property also has a gateway that can connect to the neighboring property (6035 Beachcomber) for an even added bonus!
House was full of amenities. Very enjoyable
We were in town for a wedding and had a great time hanging out together in this great house.
Was a very relaxing stay. We loved the house very clean and close enough to the beach to walk.
We had noisy neighbors and the management company was not understanding or helpful in the least. When we did get a hold of someone he was antagonistic and condescending.
It was not represented as a duplex managed by another company that they would not be able to contact if there were problems. We had 10 kids in their 20s partying next door.
We are incredibly sorry to see that there were disrespectful guests next door and that this guest did not receive better service from us. We are happy to assist our guests in attaining a peaceful atmosphere, especially if it's during quiet hours.
Perfect for a weekend with family.
Great townhouse and location near the beach.
Great property! Perfect for kids. We would stay again!!
Great location - close to the ocean - nice little town.
Home had a perfect layout for all our guests.
The house was stocked nicely and cozy.
A few things to consider:
Parking is tight but you're close to the overflow parking.
Yard is not fenced for dogs and close to the main road in town.
Internet does not work (we even called), so no Netflix either.
No hand mixer but includes basically every other kitchen thing you'd need.
Dog bed, bowls and toys included which is every sweet.
Almost none of the games have the pieces, best bring your own.
We apologize that the internet was out for your stay. We have worked with the internet service provider and have the internet up and running again!
Made for a very nice visit for my family. Great location and amenities, the owners obviously care about this beach escape. Minor wear and tear throughout, but all working except for the Internet. Calls to Century Link proved unsuccessful. Mid week is super quiet and relaxing, be prepared for loud, drunken kids making their way to the beach trail passed 10pm.
We had a wonderful stay, and vacasa makes it easy! Lots of extra beds, a nice hot tub, and a quick walk to the town. Thanks!!
Nice house. Convenient location. Just for your information, all three bedrooms are on the second level. The master bedroom has been set up for the kids. It has the boat bed with a trundle bed underneath, and a bunkbed with full-size on the bottom and twin on top. Also has a TV and 3/4 bath.
The two bedrooms are set up for couples but they share the bathroom that's by the stairs because neither of the twobedrooms has a bathroom. One of these two bedrooms has a crib though...Convenient for a couple with the baby.
We had a great time with family and friends, we are going to make it a family tradition to go back every year from now on!
Only a few very minor issues with our stay. We never found a waffle iron that was listed on the small appliances that were supposed to be there (so we had pancakes, no biggy). If we had called they might have done something about this.
The first weekend we were there was Memorial weekend and so very busy for that area and there was not enough parking. A nearby Community Center offered free parking if you got a slip, so that was very nice. The rest of the week was fine. Supposed to be able to park 3 rigs. The garage isn't real big, we were able to squeeze a minivan in, one pickup out front and the other in the extra parking one house over.
The hot tub seems to have an issue. Somehow the water is leaking or something. Each day we had to add about 10 inches of water and let it heat back up. After calling and getting approval for this we didn't have problems doing that on the days we wanted to use it.
Cute fun house! Lots of extras that we never even took advantage of, bikes, clamming tools, pet stuff, etc.
Thank you for your great review! We are so happy you enjoyed this home and everything it has to offer. Our hot tub maintenance team found the leak right after your departure and were able to fix it. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!
This was a perfect house for a group of friends or family to hang out for a weekend getaway. We used the hot tub at least twice a day, enjoyed the family room on a stormy Saturday, surfed nearby, enjoyed good restaurants, strolled on the beach, and really relaxed. Comfortable beds, super clean, and everything worked! Highly recommended.
We had a fabulous time in this house. The "kid's" room was perfect for our 2 daughters (ages 2 and 4) and niece (age 10) to all hang out and sleep in. We were also happy to see the additional trundle beds in the room so my husband and I were also able to fit in the room quite comfortably. The house had every amenity we could desire, plus some. It was a decent walk to the beach and I enjoyed being a little removed from the main part of town, but we were also able to walk in if we wanted to climb the sand dune or visit Pelican brewery. This house will definitely be a place we visit again for another large gathering.
I never write reviews, but had to go out of my way to highlight this house. We've stayed at many spots on the coast over the years, but plan to start coming back here every time! Super clean, awesome location, probably didnt hurt that it was 75 degrees and sunny the whole time.
Thank you for this great review! We would love to have you back!
We loved the house, the location, and the most fantastic beach, where at low tide there are lots of things to climb and explore, tidepool holes in the walls to observe, and wide open spaces for the dogs to play. The house was really sweet and comfortable. Great spaces for hanging out, really-well equipped kitchen, awesome table where we could all eat together. The hot tub is a giant bonus and really made the trip for some of us. Better instructions about where to find the hot tub key would be helpful. Otherwise, thanks for everything! Vacasa was easy to work with and we're so grateful to have found the house and Pacific City!
The Sea La Via house was perfect for all of my nearest and dearest to come and have a weekend away. We really enjoyed the house and hot tub. Good people, many games, relaxing, and general merriment was had by me and mine. A big part of it was the house itself.
Was very pleased with my stay, will be visiting again.
Great place with all the comforts of home! Only noticed two things needed in the kitchen, cookie sheet and pitcher for lemonade!
Our family rents properties in the Bend area as well as the Oregon Coast.
This particular property is at the top of our list for homes to rent again. The home was well supplied and convenient to all that we wanted to do. We found it particularly interesting that we never heard the surfers next door. The walls provided for great privacy from the adjoining unit. The only two minor items to consider for larger families is that the Master bedroom and Queen room share a full bath in the hall. We do prefer a private bath for each room but it is not a deal breaker especially for the location and cleanliness of this home. Secondly, the kitchen is a tad small but very, very well equipped.
We will be returning!
Thank you for this feedback. I am so glad you experience with Vacasa was such a great one and that you enjoyed the beautiful house. We look forward to seeing you again.
Sea La Vie was the best beach rental property I've ever rented. It was perfect for myself, my husband, daughters and grandchildren. We felt so at home with the great open space layout of the home, the games -- and it was absolutely the best stocked kitchen I've ever rented. There were plenty of games for us to play -- and the house was immaculately clean. It was such a fun walk to the dune ramp each day -- and the dune ramp made for some great photos. Each and every person I talk to at Vacasa was wonderful, courteous and helpful.
Although there was just the two of us and a dog , the amenities available in this home is really suited for a family with kids. We were totally comfortable with this home. There is a fully stocked kitchen and nicely appointed bedrooms. There are bicycles in the garage, dog beds, a dog crate and a multitude of games available. There is also a hot tub, which we used. We would certainly stay here again. Very nice coastal adventure for us. Storm and all.
We had a wonderful time. The house was very nice and comfortable. Very quiet and relaxing. Thank you.
We loved the stay, the home was very beautiful. The location was perfect close to everything, yet far enough you felt secluded. we appreciate the hospitaliaty of Vacasa, and can not wait to come back! The Meyer Family,
We found "Sea La Vie" to be very comfortable. The house was clean and functional. Everything we needed was provided. We only wish there was a bigger trash can and more reliable wifi. Thanks for the excellent customer service!
While the house was okay, it was not the best for a handicap person.
This was our second time booking with Vacasa, and again we were so happy with the property! The house was great, and very well equipped with everything we could ever think of needing. An excellent place for kids - our 3 year old daughter was quite upset to leave behind all the books and puzzles when it was time to go. Beach access is right across the lane-way. A perfect vacation house!
We loved the child friendliness of this house. As soon as we arrived our 7 and 10 year olds disappeared into the sand at the back of the house. They played for 2 solid hours. The crib (which we didn't know was there) was perfect for our 9 month old niece and a great bonus surprise. The children's room was adorable. The kids loved it. The house is full of games and the fully stocked kitchen was great! It had everything we needed.
We had 5 people, all adults, blended family, and it was great. Room for everyone to get together yet places to get away too. The bedrooms were lovely, comfortable, and quiet. The selection of dvd's and games covered all ages.
We loved how Sea La Vie was so well set up for our kids. It has everything from toys and kites to a crib and high chair. Our kids loved it here and so did we!
wonderful location and great house!
Thank you for your review!
