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.
This place was awesome. Everything was clean & neat, the space was big and bright, the fire warmed it perfectly, hot tub heated up nicely. Ample kitchen. Everything you could ask for. Upstairs bedrooms are cozy but you only need them for sleeping because the main floor is so awesome. Watch your head on the way up the spiral stairs. Overall A+
So happy you enjoyed your stay. The couches are from Canada but are no longer made. We love them too. Thanks for the light bulb suggestion. I will look into that!

John's house on the Oregon coast was just fantastic. We visited in the off-season, and enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub while the dramatic scenery surrounded us. The instructions for using various aspects of the house, from the lighting to the fireplace to the TV, were clear and much appreciated. Everything went wonderfully! Thanks so much for having us, John.
John was incredibly accommodating and provided us with the warmest home under a very tight turnaround. The place is beautiful and we couldn't have been happier to find sweeping views and a warm fireplace upon our midnight arrival. Same day booking, responses in under 15 minutes, and follow-up questions addressed just as quickly -- John's a true pro. I'd highly recommend this host and space to all looking for a leisurely getaway or as we chose, quick workation.
We had a fantastic weekend at Cove Cottage. The house has a very inviting feel, a lovely view and is equipped with amenities that make for a very comfortable stay. We had everything we needed, from beach towels to kitchen supplies, games, books and details about the area. Things were nice and clean. Quick walk to a great beach - would love to return some time.
