There is a fully equipped kitchen for the chef and a smart TV for movies, music and internet. We have an organic garden and will share herbs and other produce (depending on the harvest cycle).

My husband and I and our dog had a great stay in April. It was extremely stormy out, and we very much appreciated how well sealed the building was from the wind noise - we stayed comfortable and slept very well.

We had a great time. The space is a comfortable spot with a view of the ocean that was enough to make us know we were there. We also loved the sound of the ocean and the waves crashing on the shore. The space was just as advertised. A cute little space which was just perfect in size for the two of us and our two night stay. We talked to Richard a couple times and he was very helpful. We highly recommend staying here. As for the area, we were in walking distance of everything we wanted to do. It was a short walk to a restaurant named Georgie's which was right on the water with a great view. We went there for breakfast then walked back on the beach to the state park at the dunes on the other side of the house. Note we may have had trouble finding the stairs up, but were able to follow the footprints of others before us. We had planned some longer walks to the aquarium and Rogue Public House, but it was raining hard enough we decided to drive. The aquarium was nice. It is always fun watching the otters and seals. They also have a nice glass tunnel through 3 different tanks, one of which had sharks in it. Overall a pretty standard aquarium experience.

Kay & Richard provided top-notch communication beginning to end. They treated us like admired guests and were quite friendly while we enjoyed a nice weekend get-a-way together on our anniversary. This was not only a great location, but we felt right at home with all the amenities this cozy home-apartment offered. The small touches our hosts left us were quite a surprise, and as a bonus we enjoyed a rain-free Saturday, which is sporadic in March on the Oregon Coast! You just can't get this kind of stuff from a Hotel...
