Treat this home gently... we love to share it, but it is our refuge. Please keep kids under control.

SMOKING: Really, no smoking. A few guests have broken this rule... and the house really smells after their departure.

DOGS: No dogs on furniture. There are dog beds and a dog blanket in the closet by the front door. Also dog towels in the garage. Dog bowls are in the kitchen closet. Rinse sand off dogs before they enter the house. Please clean up any dog waste in the yard.

FIRES and SMOKING: No smoking in the house. Be aware that during summer there is extreme fire danger because of the dune grass. We always have a hose hooked up outside. Fireworks are against the law in the neighborhood. Please be extremely careful if you are smoking in the yard and absolutely no smoking in the house.

SEPTIC SYSTEM: Only toilet paper down the toilets, please.

CHECKING OUT: Please do your own dishes... okay to leave them in the dishwasher. Take all food from refrigerator. Okay to use the empty yogurt containers in closet for taking leftovers. Leave beds that have been slept in unmade, so housekeeper knows which need to be changed. Okay to leave garbage. There is a large bear-proof garbage can in the garage for your use. There are instructions about putting the garbage can out in the house notebook. NEVER leave dishes, food or garbage OUTSIDE as there is a lot of coyote and bear activity in the area. If you remember, close blinds and turn thermostat down to 45 degrees. Always close all windows tightly before you leave.

LOCKS/KEYS: Leave keys in the lock box on the front door when you leave.

TSUNAMI: This is a tsunami zone. There is information in the house about what to do in the event of an earthquake/tsunami.

There are two "grab and go" bags in the downstairs bedroom closet. There is extra water in the front door closet. Jerry's Bar (about two blocks away to the north on Rhododendron Drive) is the designated spot to gather (highest elevation).

Please take a look at the evacuation map on the refrigerator. IMPORTANT: there is a tsunami siren test on the last Friday of each month. It will last for a few minutes, beginning at 11 am and followed by the music from "ET". More info on sirens: (website hidden)

Lovely home, very close to the beach. The home is well appointed, most anything you would need is available. We like to cook, and found the kitchen was stocked and very clean. We had to call Betsy at check-in, and she was very responsive. We would stay again, walks on the beach were awesome!

Great place, beach is a cool hike away (not real close but close enough). Very tight roadways in and out (very difficult to navigate a fishing boat through).

My family loved the location, and atmosphere of Betsy's Place. Private, access to the Oregon Dunes. Made a great location for a family reunion! Highly recommend!

We had a marvelous time at Betsy's! The location is fantastic. The walk to the beach is short and lovely. We had everything we needed in the kitchen to cook our meals. Our kids had their own space in the loft and they enjoyed their look-out from the upper deck. We loved it so much that we looked at a house for sale in the neighborhood!

Amazing house, perfection inside and out. Stocked with everything you could need - detergents, pots and pans, towels, etc. Nothing missing, everything is excellent condition.
