What is the Cleaning Fee?
Cleaning fee is $110. The hot tub cleaning and use fee is $79 per visit and is automatically added to the cleaning fee quoted on airbnb (that is why the cleaning fee is listed as $189). If you don’t want to use the tub, simply let us know in the comments section of your order that you would like the $79 charge removed. For your enjoyment, we empty, refill, and sanitize the tub before your arrival.
Our house will be spotless when you arrive. A thorough 5-hour cleaning is performed after every rental and a cleaning inspection is made shortly before your arrival. If clean is important to you, you will be impressed.
What is the Minimum Stay?
Normally 2 nights, but we have a 6 night minimum in the summer (unless your reservation is within 30 days of your stay, then we can make exceptions). Summer season is June 16 - Aug 31.
Airbnb customers are saving the $15 booking fee that we charge on the Cove Cottage Oregon web site to help offset the Airbnb fees. Thanks for booking on Airbnb! County lodging tax of 9.5% is already included in the price. State lodging tax of 1% is collected by Airbnb.
About the Area
Cove Beach is one of the least known beaches on the Northern Oregon Coast. During low tide, a vast sand beach is exposed at Cove Beach. Because most people don't watch the tide tables, it is common to have the entire 2-mile beach to yourself -- a rare treat not only for Oregon, but for most of the world.
During high tide, there is not much sand exposed, but you can drive one mile to Arch Cape Beach where there is always sand. Or, within 7 miles you can visit Manzanita Beach (7 miles long), Hug Point Beach, Arcadia Beach or Cannon Beach -- each of which offer miles of scenic sandy beach.
About the House
Cove Cottage was recently completely remodeled. The 1500 square foot home features a panoramic ocean view, a large great room, 3 bedrooms, an upstairs/loft with spiral staircase, all new appliances, gorgeous wood floors, and an 1100 square foot deck made from sustainably harvested Red Balau Mahogany.
We are sure you will love your stay here and we look forward to hearing your comments after visiting Cove Cottage. ~ The Aebi-Magee's

Cove Cottage was simply delightful. It was clean, tastefully decorated, and well appointed. There are a few things that this rental really excels at. First, the view is great, and you can enjoy it from inside the living/dining room or from the large deck. Second, the location is right in the midst of Oswald West State Park, with loads of trails and beaches to check out; plus it's quiet and remote feeling without being that far from either Cannon Beach or Manzanita. Third, the owner is super responsive through AirBnB and offered suggestions on places to go and eat. And lastly, watching the perfect blanket of stars from the hot tub after an afternoon of hiking was just fabulous.
Excellent stay. The kids enjoyed exploring the house and running around outside in the garden and the deck. Kitchen was very thoughtfully stocked. Entire house was well designed although I would if possible suggest a light for the main shower as it's a personal preference of mine to have the shower area brightly lit. Plasters in the first aid box came in handy for 2 cuts I had during my stay (my own fault). Overall, will stay here again if I ever find myself in the area again.
everything about the beach house was perfect, from the well stocked kitchen, to the temperature of the hot tub. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this rental to anyone, and we definitely plan to come back!
We were immediately delighted with Cove Cottage, due to its beautiful view, layout, furnishings and cleanliness. There were many thoughtful touches. We loved the swinging chair in the front window. The sturdy, adjustable couches increased the variety of ways in which we enjoyed the space. The pillows, blankets and fireplace created a warm and cozy feeling even when it was damp outside. The children enjoyed the cabinet full of games and toys. The kitchen was well equipped, and the checkout instructions were simple and easy. My husband was particularly taken with the fine woodwork, and I loved watching the light change on the ocean which was visible from every point in the main living area.
Like many of the previous rave reviews, we agree that this place is stunning & that we will definitely be back! We had a 2 night stay & I didn't even want to leave the house (except for beach walk adventures)! The style & layout are so very tasteful. The place looks just like the pictures! It was such a nice bonus that firewood towels were provided (besides the obvious items listed).
The only only wee wee little complaint was that both bathrooms are on the main floor & 2 of the bedrooms up a spiral staircase on the 2nd floor. Not very handicap friendly unless you're staying in master bedroom. It wasn't a problem for us personally, just a heads up for future guests.
The Cove Cottage is just the open, airy, comfortable home you anticipate after seeing the photos. The directions easily got us to the quiet, coastal cluster just steps from a serene--and almost private--beach south of Cannon Beach proper. The view is perfect.
The beds were very comfortable, with downy pillows and bedding. The house is well-insulated and was warm. There was plenty of hot water for showers. The hot tub was clean, as was the entire home. We loved our relaxing stay and would definitely rent again.
The only caution I'd offer would be for individuals with less stable balance or limited physical ability if you desire very easy beach access (as you must traverse a moderate river-rock slope installed to preserve the eroding shoreline.) Otherwise, it is a great retreat for couples or small groups.
I am so grateful I finally got to stay at Cove Cottage. I marked it on my Airbnb wish list nearly 2 years ago! The house has such a phenomenal view. We loved the cozy furnishings for lounging around. The beds were comfy, and the linens are quite nice. The house book has a lot of great information about nearby trails. The hot tub was the best place to loosen up the muscles after a long hike.
