Rugged but Good Locatio
A guest from Vancouver, Washington recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2014 Great access and view of coast and river. Ammenities in home are old and very worn. Lower bunk bed unsafe, falling apart. That being said, we appreciated the wireless internet access.
Property Manager Response: Response from Ocean Odyssey Vacation Rentals Thank you for alerting us to the bunk bed. It has been fixed.
Christine T. from Elko, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 Everything was clean. There were more paper products than expected. The location was perfect. We loved the little creek and "private" beach along the creek.
A guest from Menomonie, WI does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2014 This was the first time in many years that we rented Big Creek House. We were somewhat disappointed. The living room furniture was the same as last time, a mish-mash and not very comfortable. The queen bed mattresses were fine. The kitchen has very little usable storage space, the tile-topped "table/pots-and-pans storage" needs to be replaced with a free-standing table which seats 8 and alternative "real cupboard" for the pots-and-pans (some of the pots were placed there still dirty). The view from the house and backyard deck is almost disappeared because of bushes not being trimmed properly. The house inside needs new paint at a minimum and new carpeting (old, worn and stained). We reported the handle of the storm door opening to the deck came off in our hands as soon as we tried to open the door but it was not fixed in the 5 days we stayed there. The WIFI was great--a real boon since cell phone reception is nil.
A guest from Eugene, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014 House is dated but very comfortable. Not very clean unfortunately. Found a dead mouse in one of the closets and the dishes were not clean. Location is so great that it made up for it though!
Property Manager Response: Response from Ocean Odyssey Vacation Rentals Thank you for the comments and we will address these issues right away as that should not have happened.
John R. from Bend, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2014 Alice, our lab/aussie/rottweilet had an extremely aggressive cancer in her nose that there was nothing that could be done for. She had her last week at the beach, her most favorite place in the world. She had a great time the first few days. She died the day after we got back.
A guest from eugene, oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2014 I bring my own pillows, blankets and cleaning supplies when coming to this house.The hot tub in the rain brings us back.
A guest from Danville, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2014 This house is in need of a serious make-over and expense and time in doing a thorough cleaning. It's not a send in the cleaning company before the next guest cleaning, it's a serious steam cleaning, carpet cleaning, grout, tile, walls top to bottom cleaning, including all the blankets and coverlets. THEN, they can start on replacing the living room furniture.The kitchen is also poorly furnished and arranged. The pots/pans they have are in poor condition and again question the cleanliness. We opted for dinner out.The view must be what brings people back as it is breath taking. Lying in the hot tub in the middle of a storm watching the ocean was amazing.With relatives in Oregon we'll be back to the Oregon Coast, but not to Big Creek.
MICHAEL Z. from SPRINGFIELD, OR does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2014 We love this house and like to come stay, but the place seems to be experiencing some neglect, such as lots of dust - on the light fixtures, baseboards, etc. There is some kind of goo (mold?) that dripped down the walls and dried there. And other things of that sort. Would love to recommend it but would be embarrassed to do so in that state. We'll probably give it one more chance and then find a different house to rent if it doesn't improve. It's a pity because we have come to think of it as our "beach house." Let us know if you want us to stay there rent from for a long weekend and do some deep cleaning. The outside needs some attention, too. Hate to see it go like that.
A guest from junction city, oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2014 It was wonderful-peaceful, private- beach access great- hot tub was great--to be honest- it could have been alot cleaner- for the cleaning deposit patrons pay it should be spotless/ There were crumbs in all the cabinets.... I would still stay there again for the location. thank you
Peter B. from Kenmore, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2013 When I originally booked my trip, one of the requirements was a functional television. I rarely care if the tv is working, since the point of getting away... is to get away. However, this was a post-season Seahawks game, so it became a requirement.Upon arrival, we found that the tv service was not working, possibly the satellite dish. Either way, once I found out (very late at night, I might add), I sent a somewhat terse email describing my disappointment.First thing in the morning, there was an email from Pete, the property manager. He was very gracious, and like a pro, took care of the situation by arranging for a new location, one we liked even better then the first (with a functional television). We were relocated and settled in about two hours before kickoff. The weekend was perfect.The effort to take care of us was very much appreciated. Will certainly look to come back in the future.
A guest from Eugene, Ore recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2013 The home is rustic with some cozy touches but needs a good cleaning, fresh blankets and linens.Dust balls go here to multiply. The view to the beach is this homes lasting charm.
Patty J. from Eugene, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 The house would be awesome if it were clean. Windows were dirty and nothing to clean them with. I would go back with a bucket of supplies.
A guest from Ligonier, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2013 Had a great week at Big Creek. We were able to go right from the house on to the sand beach. The house is all cedar inside and nothing fancy but does the job and we loved the floor heat. Beautiful weather then the storm hit and were out of electric for a couple hours then went back to nice weather. Vacation Odyssey was very easy to work with and was willing bend rules and work with us on our schedule.
A guest from Corvallis, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2013 Have rented here several times. Love the location, hot tub, fire pit, new BBQ. TV has lots of channels (satellite), great during bad weather. It's an older home, lots of stains if the carpet, which means we're not walking on eggshells when we pour the wine, lol! Comfortable and pleasant place to stay! One of 3 homes I keep going back to!
Walt C. from Nampa, Idaho recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in August, 2013 We had stayed at the Big Creek house five years ago to celebrate my son's engagement and enjoyed our stay. We were very disappointed at the deteriation of this property. The cleaning was substandard. This house desperately needs some attention: filthy fridge on the outside, kitchen drawers that can't be opened without dumping contents on the floor, leaking sink, a shower stall that leaks so bad that the bathroom rug is soaked, screen door was broken upon our arrival and neither one latches correctly, burned out light bulbs we had to replace, lack of laundry detergent for an 11 day reservation, only 1 kitchen trash bag upon our arrival, rug was filthy with garbage left under a throw rug and the futon, and cable/dish problems with all TVs (only livingroom issue was resolved) and spotty internet, only worked in the livingroom. Again, love the location, just wish the home was better maintained!
laurie b. from Sherwood, OR does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2013 Its a beautiful scenic area. The hot tub was clean and fun. That's honestly all positive I can say. First off, the bedrooms face the Pacific Coast HW, so you're hearing highway noise all day and all night. We had trouble sleeping. Inside is unbelievable filthy. There are large globs of mildew in the shower, mildew in the grout. Both bathrooms have two shower heads, but when you turn both on, it goes cold. Almost every surface is thick, I mean THICK, with dust. There is dirty stuff all around each doorknob, or cabinet knob. The floors were gross. The couches felt so dirty. In the windowsills you'll find cobwebs and dead bugs. There was no garlic press, small issue. The microwave didn't work, took them hours to get a new one. There was no channel remote on the tv so we had to get up to change the channel for a day until they brought us a universal one, that we had to program. There was only enough tp for about one day, we had to buy the rest. There was no cleaning spray anywhere. Some of the towels were stained and dirty. Honesly, when we left we felt gross. I was chasing the kids around with sanitizer every second.
Anitra W. from Canby, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in July, 2013 We had a great time. The house location is amazing and the house is very comfortable. We were unhappy with the way the kitchen is't very well stock with utensils and the storage cabinets are not very well stocked with towels, both kitchen and bath.
Teresa S. from Burbank, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 This is the 3rd year I have rented this house. The location is amazing but the house itself could use some upgrading. The pots & pans need to be replaced many of them are unusuable. Also the mattress in one of the bedrooms needs to be replaced. The general appearance of the house is "seen better days" If it wasn't for the outstanding location and hot tub I would never rent this house.
My family has been staying at Big Creek one weekend annually since '02.We love the place.
A guest from Springfield, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2009 We are very comfortable at Big Creek. We bring a family including two dogs and so take advantage of the fresh water rinse of Big Creek after a run in the surf. We did really enjoy having the hot tub available in years past and so did miss it this year. We all hope you will seriously consider replacing that ammenity. Otherwise, we had great weather, and good times. Thank You.
