If all units are like mine, this is a really nice place (but keep reading). I was in an upstairs unit (#11) which basically is a 1 bedroom condo. Everything seemed new and modern. Full kitchen (no dishwasher or garbage disposal), big living room with sofa, nice chair, DR table and chairs. You are right on the beach, so perfect view through wall of windows and out on balcony. See photos.

Issues: I had virtually no cell coverage; tiny flat screen, too small for such a big room; wifi in and out, too often out. No phones.

Only place I've ever been with a kitchen that expects you to do the dishes and clean up!

Room Tip: Best views in top floor.

If you are looking for a reasonably priced place to stay with great views, wonderful beach, scrumptiously clean and comfortable with a no pets, no smoking policy this is the place for you. I have driven by this little spot between Yachats and Waldport many times, but never thought of staying until a friend recommended it. Wow, we had such a relaxing stay.The older units (where we stayed) are nothing fancy but very clean and homey. Nice touches like real plants and lots of magazines to read made for a great stay. Good wifi, adequately appointed kitchen, and you don't hear your neighbors unless they are walking by your door. There was traffic noise but that didn't interfere with our stay. We had a room with the bedroom upstairs and facing the beach. This made for a very quiet place to sleep with a fabulous view of the ocean. Stairs were a little tricky with aging knees but doable when we took our time. Jan was kind enough to show us the newer units and "wow", they are beautiful. For the best price be prepared to commit to a 3 day stay in summer and 2 day in winter with a no cancellation policy. We will be back.

An ideal place to relax, ocean hear and walk beach. Facility and rooms are clean plus comfortable. I liked the retro hardwood wall plus refrigerator and microwave. Nice deck with seating. Will stay here again. Pricing fair and worth price. Fine sink, stool and shower. Coffee maker and coffee a bonus.

Thanks Jan for providing great accommodations for a reasonable rate. We had room #7, basically a hotel room, but with the protected deck it was perfect. I could see and hear the ocean from my bed. The grounds are impeccable with flowers everywhere. Bring your own toiletries and plastic cups. Great selection of restaurants 4 miles away either direction. Also close to Cape Perpetua, a must see park.

Room Tip: Room 7 basic,but great view.

My goals to relax, have no worries, no time clock to watch were made easy due to the peaceful soundscapes of waves, the ground squirrels, clean comfy room, and the kites. Thank You Jan and Eugene, see ya soon.
