well-equiped cabin

Review submitted: December 1, 2009   Date of arrival: November 23, 2009

Right from the start, I loved the cabin. It's lay-out is spacious, the furniture is comfortable, and there is a 120-degree view of the ocean, which is only a flight of steps from the beach. The owners provide plenty of extras: nice pillows, plenty of blankets, nice kitchen ware, bookshelves stocked with books, computer, Direct TV cable, and plenty of towels and tissues. The cabin is tidy, well-equiped and ideally situated. A great find!

Owners response: Yes, we're proud of the wonderful view from all common rooms inside the cottage, and the easy beach access from our stairs to the beach. And glad that people find it to be well-equipped.

We rented the Blue Rose and the neighbor property for a family reunion in July of 2012. We combined the reunion with my daughter's wedding. The honeymoon couple stayed in the Blue Rose and the rest of the family stayed next door. It was fantastic. The property is very nice with access to the beach. The deck is private, and the kitchen was stocked with everything the honeymooning couple needed. The deal on the two houses together was unbeatable. It was the perfect accommodations for our needs.

Great spot and cozy cottage!

Review submitted: October 9, 2012   Date of arrival: August 21, 2012

We really enjoyed our first stay at the Blue Rose Cottage, the spot was pretty much perfect, right on the beach with a secret entrance right behind the cottage. The view is amazing and the cottage itself was fine, it's small but quite clean. We really enjoyed the area and the great hiking close by. Cape Lookout and Cape Meares were amazing! Only real negatives were that the linens were scarce and what was there was pretty crappy. New blankets and extra towels and sheets would have been really nice. (we couldn't find sheets to fit the extra fouton) Overall we would definitely go back to that area, next time I will probably look for something with a dishwasher. But for the money it was worth it!

Owners response: I'm glad you enjoyed the cottage and our beach. I will look into the linen situation. A dishwasher upgrade is likely to be part of this winter's kitchen upgrade plans. - Doug

Best birthday ever!

Review submitted: August 23, 2012   Date of arrival: August 13, 2012

I often dream and peruse for beach rentals... but I thought for my birthday I would treat myself to more than a day trip to the ocean. I really like the Tillamook/Three capes area and thus, I happened upon the Blue Rose Cottage. From the pictures it looked cozy enough so I booked it. So much more than pleasantly surprised when we walked in. Even though you drive through the bustling metropolis of Netarts to get there and it's also nestled in with other buildings, it is a relatively private house. I liked that is was a charming older home, not so much like the cookie cutter vacation homes they seem to building down the coast line. The windows with a view where amazing! The place was simple, clean and quaint. The kitchen was stocked well with cooking utensils, among other things, we grilled and ate like kings (and queen) for three days. The weather was perfect escape from portland's 100 degree weather. The walks along the beach were incredible. There are lots of things within short driving distance to do. And, there is a little Deli/convenient store couple blocks away for when you said you weren't going to eat ice cream on this trip but then "just had to have it" I think it was one of my best birthdays to date. Thank you Doug and family for providing us with a wonderful cottage to get out of town and relax. Rich took his place by the window, I took my place on the deck and we read, drank wine and relaxed... so needed. Again, Thank you.

I just want to thank you for our chance to enjoy your beautiful cottage and location in Netarts. We had a wonderful time! Your list of 'Doug's Picks' was really helpful to us. We were delighted by the tide pools at Oceanside and by the beach there, too, but we also so appreciated the easy access to the beach right at the cottage. It was perfect for playing in the sand and the creek. You have been very helpful with this rental experience, both with detailed information and with flexibility. The house is so well equipped and easy to enjoy for a few days. Thank you! I surely hope we can find a time to come again.

What a beautiful place! We’ve been to lots of California beaches but nothing compares to the peacefulness here in Netarts.
