Tranquility by the Sea is a laid back 3 bedroom, 2 bath home perched on a hillside in beautiful Neskowin. This home has two decks, a fireplace, and a short walk to easy beach access where you might find you have the beach all to yourself!
Three steps up and you are on the main level of this peaceful home. The first thing you will notice is the unique art work done by friends and family of the home owner. The living room has a cushy couch and chairs along with a nice wood burning fireplace. Here you have views for miles from the picture windows facing the beach.
The open and spacious floor plan includes the dining and kitchen areas connected to the living room. The well-stocked kitchen allows you to prepare whatever your heart desires. Whether it is a sit-down dinner around the table or popcorn while watching a movie - the choice is yours! There is even a small nook near corner windows where one could sit and write a letter, read a book or simply bask in the sun.
Go out the sliding glass door from the dining room and here you will take in breath taking views of the ocean from over the tree tops below. If it is the sunset on a warm sunny night or sipping coffee in the morning the views are yours to be had anytime.
Still on the main level, there is one bedroom with a queen size bed. If you can imagine waking up and seeing the ocean views from here you might feel like it just doesn't get better than this! A couple steps from here is a full bathroom with shower stall.
Take 12 steps down and you have entered the family room. Here you have a comfy sofa and flat screen TV including movies for a rainy day. There is also a door that leads you out on a deck perfect for hanging out on sunny days.
On this level, you have two bedrooms - each with two twins. There are nice views of the trees and forest from both of these bedrooms. There is also laundry facilities and a full bathroom with a shower stall, as well.
The beach access is a short stroll from this home. It is about 4 blocks down a nice quiet residential road to the path that takes you onto the sand. This area is a protected sanctuary where you will see anything from deer to seals. If you are lucky, the sand will be low enough to expose ancient tree trunks showing you where the shoreline was hundreds of years ago. And if that is not enough - well there is always the miles of sand that lay ahead just waiting to see your footprints.
If you want a place that is relaxing, comfortable, with an amazing view of the ocean and surrounding area this is the place. There were seven of us (all retired professionals) and we had plenty of room. The living room and dining room view was breathtaking. The kitchen was large and spacious and we used it every day. We spent days golfing, shopping, sight seeing. You are close to many historical sites and great restaurants.
We enjoyed a multi-generational family get-together here. For the elder generations, there were wonderful views from the upper bedroom and livingroom, as well as easy beach access within a few minutes drive. For the boomers and millenials in our group, the 75 stairs down to the beach were fun and made walking the beach an easy off the cuff activity for individuals or groups. The kitchen is great, so meals were easy to prepare together. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms clean with everything in excellent working order.
We have been to this house three times in just over a year. The view is spectacular- photos don't do it justice. We have gone with another family two of the times and found the layout worked really well. There is a great room downstairs for the kids to play and the kitchen is big enough for group cooking and eating. The house is stocked on the light side- not many towels, no wash cloths, shampoo but no conditioner. As long as you bring most of what you need, it's not a problem. We will definitely be back!
We had a short notice opportunity to get away for a few Spring days, and found this fun house in Neskawin available. We have always stayed further South on the coast, so it was a first in this area. Really nice and peaceful community tucked up into the hill overlooking a private beach. The view is amazing, and the beach is an easy walk from the house (if you are good with stairs and a hill).
Really a comfortable home, nicely equipped with fantastic views from the decks, living areas and bedrooms. The wood burning fireplace was great on the one rainy and windy day we had. Neighbor's are a good distance away, so really a peaceful and private setting.
I would give a 5 star review, with the exception of the sauna. It was advertised in the listing, including a picture. It seemed like a real nice perk after a cold walk on the beach, and was a determining factor in choosing this house. I was not provided with a key to the sauna, and was not able to reach anyone from Vicasa for two days. Ultimately they left me a message and said the sauna was broken, and had been for a while. I would have appreciated knowing that up front.
The house and views are great regardless of rain or sun.
My issue is with the confirmation letter indicating we were limited to 3 cars, 1 to park in the garage and two to park in the driveway. No big deal. The house description also mentioned a charcoal grill and a sauna. The house key didn't open the garage, and the sauna key was not on the refrigerator like the confirmation letter noted. We planned on grilling steaks and salmon but were unable to since we couldn't gain entry into the garage. The key to the sauna was missing.
If the description didn't mention a grill or a sauna, I would've have an issue. However, those were featured amenities.
Friday night when I discovered the missing keys, I called and left a voice message with Vacasa. On Saturday morning I emailed Vacasa about my complaints. It's Wednesday afternoon, and I've yet receive a phone call or email from Vacasa.
