Cozy, Cute and Quirky Lisle S. from Corvallis, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in February, 2016 We had a terrific weekend at the Dowd House. The one bum kitchen did not allow all 6 women to prepare food at the same time, but it was cute and well stocked with the essentials. We enjoyed the uniqueness of the house and the kitschy decorations. The bed in the front bedroom was quite comfortable, with a fantastic view of the ocean. We truly enjoyed our stay in your comfortable little house.
Dowd Unit A Calvin C. from Albany, Oregon recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in January, 2016 Loved the location and access to the beach. It was nice having both A and B units for our family. My only concern was the wall heating and the small rooms for baby sleepers: getting enough heat, but not too hot with the "pack and plays".
Good but missing some details. Gary S. from Longview, Washington recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2015 All worked out nice and we had a terrific stay just a couple of nuisances like that there was no paper towels in the kitchen and no shampoo in the house. We had problems with a breaker continuing to blow while trying to cook and get it warmed up in there at the same time. We shut the heater off and then it was okay. I highly recommend this place to anyone that loves the beach though. It was awesome and we stayed an extra night.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC We really do try and remind guests that we do not provide paper towels and personal soaps and shampoos. We try our best to provide what the owners can within their budgets. Sorry about the breaker, it has been repaired.
Our Family Vacation Jody S. from Gilbert, AZ recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2015 The beach house was exactly as described and yet had features that weren't. We stayed on the A side. We loved the view and watching the sunset (at almost 9:00 pm). The house had all the amenities and then some. It had some really great books and some journals from the late 1800's. So fascinating. The beds were comfy with plenty of blankets if needed. The bathrooms were large and nice. We didn't use the fireplace, because I was lazy and didn't want to have to clean it up. I am sure it would have been cozy. The beach access is a few driveways down and very easy to get down to. The beach was so different from California beaches and we loved it. We even came across a stick teepee that someone had built. The beach was also much cleaner than California beaches. I would definitely stay here again and will.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Thanks so much for the wonderful review of Dowd. We hope you will return again soon. Oregon Beaches ROCK!!!
Great Location and Price. Bedrooms could be better. A guest from Beaverton, Oregon recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in June, 2015 Pros- Great Location- Cozy- PriceCons- Dated Interior- Cleanliness of Master Bedroom- SheetsOverall this place is good and I would probably go there again. However, the Master bedroom REALLY needs a good dusting and all the sheets and blankets should be replaced. They smell old and damp.
We'll be back A. Jackie V. from Carstairs, AB recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in July, 2014 The property was quirky, had lots of character and was clean. Lots of room and comfortable beds. Fantastic view. Access to the beach was difficult. The stairs mentioned only went part way down the sand dune. Staff at Bayshore were phenomenal !!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC There is a very easy beach access less than a block from the house. We have directions in the house, so not sure how you missed them. It's a deeded beach access, gently sloaping to the water, will make sure those directions are posted. The access from the house is impossible and very dangerous.
Spring break for the girls... A guest from Eugene, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in March, 2014 With only a couple of days during the girls vacation free from other activities, I brought my daughter and three granddaughters to this wonderful old house. Plenty of room, WiFi for the kids and amazing views for us. We had an issue with a large tree branch rubbing on the metal roof and making a terribly loud noise and the staff of Bayshore Rentals took care of the situation immediately! They were wonderful to work with and I will definitely rent this great house again.
Dowd unit rocks! Kristy C. from Creswell, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in May, 2013 We had a wonderful time at this cute, rustic home. It is not a 5 star hotel, but very comfortable and roomy. Great View! Just a short drive to the bay front in Newport. My Daughter had the best 21st birthday ever! Thank you!!
Christmas Vacation on the Oregon Coast A guest from Rapid City, SD recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in December, 2012 My family spent 7 days at the Dowd House over Christmas and enjoyed it thoroughly. We bought a tiny artificial tree, decorated it with lights and strung lights over the mantle. The home has great personality. I would suggest some weather stripping on the back door for winter weather, it lets in quite a draft. We loved the view and saw a lot of fishing boat lights at night. We would definitely rent the property again.
Funky Old House Michael H. from Portland, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in August, 2012 The house was funky and charming. Needs electrical upgrade in kitchen. Futon not very comfortable, a not very expensive fix. Overall, we were happy and had a wonderful stay.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC You will be happy to know the electrical has been fixd in the kitchen so all is up to code. The futon is being replaced. Glad you had a good time!
Dowd Unit R258A Mark S. from Portland, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 We loved our visit! Great location, Beautiful beach, house was wonderfully decorated and has lots of character. Some things that might be nice to do: It looked like the gutters and yard need a little cleaning. Glass fireplace doors seemed in need of replacement or removal.Kitchen stove was a little testy. Toss all the non-stick cookware and provide more cast iron or cheap SS ones instead. Non-stick is not so healthy and gets easily scraped which leads to ingestion of the material.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Thanks for your suggestions, we certainly will take all your feed back into consideration. We really appreciate it!!!
Funky and charming! A guest from Gresham, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in September, 2011 We really enjoyed our stay, great views of beach, very easy access to great walking beach, located just a few feet from the driveway. Loved all the old woodwork and in this folksy rental. A little chilly at times, but the fireplace was great. Overall, very charming, rental company very responsive to any concerns & we had a great time! Lovely view of the surf from the master bedroom & living room.
Oregon Vacation A guest from Bremerton, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2011 Condition of property has a rustic charm but could use upgrading the kitchen appliances and utinsils. Towels were at a premimum and could use more. Photo towards beach leads one to believe you just take a few steps and you are on beach when infact house is on a high cliff above. Did not like the hike down to the beach. With all said we would still come again but would rent both unit A & B together.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Thanks for your comments, we will add more towels and upgrade some of the utensils. The safe beach access is about a block walk, we will make sure that is noted on the information, thank you for reminding us of that fact.
Great House A guest from Bend, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in October, 2010 I feel the check out time should be adjusted. This was a home not a hotel so I feel that the check out time of 11am is ridiculous especially if there is no one coming in the night of your departure. Your company should offer a later check out as an option when booking and there should not be an additional fee for that especially if no one has booked the house
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC We really do try to be accommodating but that is a big house to clean. Since our cleaners are independent house cleaners they have other homes to clean, not just Dowd A. We have to be consistent in our check out times since someone could easily walk in or book on line and we would need to have it clean prior to their arrival. Sorry if you were inconvenienced but there are too many variables to adjust the time of check out.
Dowd House at Bayshore Rentals Stephanie S. from Portland, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in June, 2010 We had such a wonderful time at the Dowd House! My family has been staying with Bayshore Rentals for years but this was the first time I stayed there with friends instead of family. I knew staying with Bayshore Rentals would be a good experience and I was right! Beach access was very close, the house was clean and perfect. Thank you so much for a great weekend!
The best place to stay Melanie H. from Wadesboro, NC recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in June, 2010 I have been using this house for the past 15 years, and it's been at least 9 years since I was is still the best place to stay will be back and plan on making it a yearly event
