Our home is good for couples, small families and those who want to bring a canine friend.

The space

Exceptionally quiet though also well located. A comfortable, older beach home which is clean, but feels more like grandma's home vs modern city home.
Our home is just far enough away from town to be miss the crowds and close enough to easily walk to any location. Park your car and settle in!

Guest access

This home is owner managed.

Interaction with guests

The cupboard is stocked with cooking oils, basic spices & a wide selection of herbal & caffeinated teas. It is our goal to have a kitchen that is well equipped for those who want to cook vs going out for all meals.

Sage's place was great, close to shops and a short walk to the beach. The place was very clean, beds were very comfortable and kitchen well equipped. Sage was quick to respond to text message and was extremely friendly. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

What everyone else said--comfortable house, great location, Sage was very communicative. We were very happy; the only issue that frustrated us is that we stayed for two nights and the cleaning fee was 75$--meanwhile, there was page-long list of things to do before we checked out. Strip bed, wash dishes, laundry, trash outside--just seemed an exorbitant amount to charge to then ask us to "leave the house as we found it."

Response from Sage:
Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We are of course grateful and pleased that you were very happy with your stay. Regarding your concerns, The world of home sharing is truly different from staying in hotels. The entire cleaning fee is to pay the great folks who make sure the house is perfect for each guest. We were guests of Airbnb long before we were hosts, and we have always been asked to start a load of laundry and wash the breakfast dishes as a courtesy before leaving. The pleasure of enjoying a true home away from home and the uniqueness of each host's creative hospitality make these considerations well worth the experience. Of course, we do encourage our guests to read all the expectations of check out listed on the home page under the "house rules" tab to make sure they understand them prior to confirming their booking with us. We hope you return to "The Owl's Nest" soon!

We had a lovely time at the Owl's Nest! Sage was very quick to respond to all messages and provided helpful instructions proactively so we were well-prepared for our stay before even arriving. The comfortable furniture and fully-stocked wood burning stove kept us warm and cozy during the spectacular Oregon Coast rain we experienced. The kitchen was complete with all the amenities we needed to cook during our stay. We would definitely stay here again, and recommend to anyone looking to spend time in Manzanita!

Home wasn't cleaned due to apparent issue with cleaners and had to do our own laundry to make the bed. Home is fairly dated with enclosed garage off of kitchen and laundry. Location is ok with 10min walk to main st. And beaches.

Owl's Nest cottage is a short walk to the beach, nestled in a calm and quiet spot amongst the trees. An easy spot from which to venture out and a cozy retreat when you'd rather not!
