"Christmas as the beach!
Although we were aware that the rental was dog friendly, there was still a lot more dog hair than we were happy with. For example, the table has bolts on the underside and there were long tufts of dog hair hanging from both (obviously as the dog walked by the hair was caught). It was clearly visible when you walked in the door. There was also dog hair/dust bunnies in the corners of the room and under the furniture. More attention to detail in the cleaning would have caught this. Other than that the house was lovely and clean, my daughter loved all the whale decoration. The kitchen was well equipped and we were able to cook a fantastic Christmas dinner. It is a bit away from the beach and up a short hill, but that wasn't a problem for us. There was a small problem with the wifi, but that was dealt with very quickly. We probably wouldn't stay at this location again, but we had a great experience with SSVR and would use them for future vacations without hesitation."
Jan 16, 2020 - Jennifer C., Vancouver, BC

"Great little cottage!
WE really enjoyed our stay at the Gray Whale Cove. The house is extremely comfortable for a family of four plus a dog. The house is very cheery and light and decorated very nicely. It's so close to downtown Manzanita and the beach. We will be coming back!"
Jan 06, 2020 - Connie M., Vancouver, WA

"Wonderfully Relaxing Stay
I had a wonderful time at the Gray Whale Cove rental in Manzanita and wished I had stayed another couple days. Everything in the house was in great shape, comfortable, with all the amenities I could wish for other than a hot tub. I have two dogs and they loved it as well. My only compliant was that the entire yard is fenced as described, there is just a low board to slide across the deck walkway on the side that leads to the front yard and street, so it's not really secure. However, it's so quiet with very little traffic, and sitting up higher than the street meant that there was little for my dogs to bark at anyway, and we were always with them, so it worked alright. Overall a great experience. Thank you for sharing your home."

"Gray Whale Excellent As Usual
This was our third stay at this property, and it has always been excellent. Property is perfect for 2, 3 or 4 people. It's only 2 blocks from downtown and a short walk to the beach. You don't need a car while in town.

A couple items which need addressing:

Wifi was very weak and not useable in some cases; and

Outlet for the tv in the bedroom gave off an irritating blue light that filled the entire room (we had to unplug it at night in order to sleep)."
Sep 24, 2019 - Bob P., Tempe, AZ

"Always wonderful
We love the Gray Whale! The accommodations are perfect! It's our go to place!"
Sep 12, 2019 - Karen M., Portland, Oregon

felt right at home in this newly remodeled house. The backyard was landscaped nicely & easily secured for our dog. That was a real plus. It was clean & well maintained. Loved the location close to town & the beach. We would definitely rent this house again. "
Aug 02, 2019 - , Gig Harbor, WA

"A Good Time in Manzanita
We had a good stay but we were disappointed that the plan to add a second bathroom didn't materialize. The existing bathroom is very small and only accommodates one person at a time. The TV instructions need updating as I informed Sunset Vacation Realty. We were disappointed that there was no kleenex in the house. However, this is a nice property and we'll rent it again next year. "
Jul 21, 2019 - John K., Bothell, WA

"Absolutely perfect for us!
We loved the Gray Whale Cottage. So much so, we're hesitant to say too much or it'll be constantly rented and we won't get in! Great location, spotlessly clean, everything works, decor is charming with endearing whale nuances, very comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen, spectacular backyard with lots of flower boxes....what more could you possibly ask for?"
Sep 29, 2018 - Lee M., Hawi, HI

"4 sisters vacation
We had a wonderful time. WE love the house. The only thing I would say we were unhappy about is the old Teflon set of pans are really unhealthy to cook with. Otherwise everything was great."
Sep 14, 2018 - Bonnie L., Portland, OR

"Perfect House, Perfect Location
This is our third year staying at Gray Whale Cove. We love how comfortable and charming it is, and the easy walk to town or the beach. We adore this place!"
Aug 31, 2018 - Kimberly T., Portland, Oregon

"An absolute DREAM
Gray Whale is such a lovely home w/ so much room and generous amenities. Bedrooms are really nice w/ big comfy beds. Great kitchen, grill outside and lovely back patio. Cable and wifi. Ridiculously close walk to both town and beach. And extra Yayyyy, DOG FRIENDLY!! Thank you, we adored this place."
Aug 28, 2018 - Patricia S., Portland, OR

"Can't get enough of Gray Whale Cove
This was our fourth stay at Gray Whale Cove. We LOVE staying here! It's clean, has everything you need and is ideally situated. In the summer, we especially enjoy the outdoor patio, which is beautifully landscaped with tons of comfortable outdoor furniture. Only criticism is that there are a ton of very perfume heavy jars in every room which we immediately put away when we get there. FYI."
Aug 20, 2018 - Elisa R., Seattle, WA

"Well maintained home & garden w/ uninvited gardening relatives
A quiet, updated rambler we all of the amenities. 15 minute w,all to the beach & close to town. It was comfortable, yet disturbing to be frightened by elderly relatives of owners who surprised me on the back patio watering the plants! I had to leave the property due to the intrusion. Not a good situation!"
Jul 28, 2018 - , Seattle, WA

"Lovely place to stay
This is a gem. Great location on quiet street, close to shopping and restaurants. Lovely back yard with beautiful potted flowers. Comfortable and clean with all the amenities. I would stay there again in a flash. The property managers are friendly and helpful. "
Jul 24, 2018 - Joan S., Portland, OR

"Gray Whale Home
The vacation home we rented was perfect for our needs! Very clean, very homey and just the right distance from town for a nice walk. I would definitely go back to this home when we are in the area. We mainly slept at this home as we were with family camping at Newhalem State Park so did not do cooking at the house. Outside patio was perfect for a last night gathering for pizza."
Jul 20, 2018 - , Kirkland, WA

"Quaint, well appointed & cozy
A very welcoming vacation rental. Easy biking distance to town (5 min). Walking (15 min). Very clear instructions for the renter. And of course super clean!"
Jul 19, 2018 - Mary P., Sandpoint, ID

"Great house in a quiet location
Loved the decorations and the bed was very comfortable. Nice lay out and located in a very friendly, quaint town. House is pet friendly, but very clean. Sunset vacation rentals was easy to work with and very helpful during the reservation process."
May 15, 2018 - Judith C., Whitefish, MT

This was the perfect place for a weekend get-away in Manzanita! A quick 5 minute walk to the beach, coffee shop, and the local market. This quiet neighborhood was a nice retreat after spending the days exploring near-by towns. The home was very clean, and comfortable for two people. Beds were comfy, and the seating area and kitchen felt homey. While there weren't lots of "extras" in the kitchen, the local market had everything we needed. We'd loved out stay!"
Mar 19, 2018 - , Homer, AK

"cozy retreat
Had a wonderful week at The Gray Whale, beautiful cottage with great outdoor spaces for entertaining.
It was very well kept and made you feel like it was your own home. Thanks again for a wonderful time."
Aug 17, 2017 - Pat B., North Bend, WASHINGTON

"Great rental!
We had a great three day stay - beautiful house with a big patio and garden. Best supplied rental I've ever stayed in in terms of kitchen equipment etc. We will be back."
Aug 17, 2017 - Carole A., Seattle, WA

"A Whale of a Fantastic Vacation!
We had a great time! The only draw back was not staying long enough."
Aug 08, 2017 - Salina M., Chattaroy, WA

"Gray Whale Cove was perfect!
This was our first time renting a vacation home and we absolutely loved it! This particular house was super clean and very cozy. An added bonus was the back yard...very serene and peaceful with just the right amount of decorations. We love the town of Manzanita and this stay made it all the more enjoyable. Appreciated the fully stocked kitchen as well. We will be back."
Jun 29, 2017 - Brian B., Federal Way, Wa

"Manzanita beach house
A great place to stay in Manzanita, especially if you have a dog. We are "repeat customers" and will continue to be."
Jun 11, 2017 - Linda M., Portland, OR

"Great location!
The house was perfect. The yard was perfect for our dogs. It was well equipped with everything that we needed. Close risk to town and then each. Our only complaint was the neighbors next door had loud parties both nights till 2 AM. "
May 23, 2017 - Meagan W., The Dalles, OR

"Grey Whale home
Very easy process with personal attention. "
Apr 22, 2017 - , Apple Valley, MN

"Home Away
This home offered a very welcoming experience from the moment we entered the front door to the backyard . Don't be put off by first impressions from the curb. It is well appointed and nicely decorated inside and the backyard is ready for any summer barbecue or peaceful lounging one might desire."
Apr 17, 2017 - Chuck S., gales creek, OR

We were pleasantly surprised. The home was delightful and well stocked with everything that we needed. It was clean, cheerful and relaxing. It was conveniently close to everywhere we needed to go. We wished we had more nights. We would use this rental again in a heartbeat."
Aug 17, 2016 - , Spokane, WA

"Perfect Getaway Cottage
LOVED this house - so comfortable, walking distance to town and beach. My dream beach house!"
Jun 21, 2016 - Kimberly T., Portland, OR

"Spring fling at gray whale
We liked the house. It rained so we didn't get to take advantage of the nice secluded yard and patio.We were never able to get the media to work , TV or music so we played games instead. My only real negative is that a hefty security deposit is non refundable regardless of whether or not there was any damage to the home. This is an unusual and unfair policy."
Jun 06, 2016 - Kandi H., Portland, Oregon

"Gray Whale Immaculate!
Very comfortable, nice amenities, perfect place to stay."
May 30, 2016 - , Portland, OR

"Perfect beach weekend
Wonderful house, loved the whale theme! Great location, just a short walk to the beach and restaurants. Our dog enjoyed the fenced in back yard. We will definitely be returning! "
Apr 08, 2016 - Alyssa S., Portland, OR

"Great spot for family
Our family of four (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed here for a weekend and had a great time. House was cute and clean, and location was unbeatable. Quiet, nice backyard, only a very short walk into town. We would definitely stay here again."
Mar 31, 2016 - , Portland, OR

"Lovely place to stay
We really enjoyed our stay at Gray Whale Cove – as expected the weather was rainy but we stayed warm and cozy with the gas fireplace and loved seeing the rain through the skylights! Very comfortable beds and a nice backyard. We look forward to returning!"
Mar 08, 2016 - , Portland, OR

"Charming Whale Themed Cottage
Delightful accommodations for the two of us and our dogs. Not too far from downtown, several blocks from the beach but still within "earshot" of the waves. Very comfortable beds which are hard to find at a rental. Just as advertised via photos!"
Nov 17, 2015 - Susan N., Ridgefield, WA

The house is perfect for a quiet vacation. Absolutely no street noise! The private back yard is delightful! House is very comfortable and fully equipped with everything 4-6 guests would need. Lots of towels! Skylights enhance the living/kitchen area. Loved the king bed. The futon in the living room would be OK for a child or two, but not an adult. "
Sep 04, 2015 - , Condon, OR

"Manzanita Oregon
The rental was spotless, very cute and comfortable. The neighbourhood was very quiet and the backyard was beautiful. This was my first time renting a house and I highly recommend it and this house. It was a perfect getaway to celebrate our anniversary. "

"Perfect House
Everything was perfect. I needed help with the futon and the maintenance came immediately. Extremely satisifed with Sunset Rentals."
May 26, 2015 - , Seattle, WA

"[Great amenities!
Cute property, and a close walk to groceries. The beach was several blocks down, but that's why we come to Manzanita--to walk! The house had all the blenders, coffee grinders, beach towels, and wine glasses you could want. The outdoor furniture made using the patio a pleasure, and the wifi kept us connected with family. Very quiet neighborhood, and a relaxing stay. We will come back to this house again!"
Apr 27, 2015 - Avis A., Auburn, WA

"Great House
My husband and I, our two children, and our dog stayed here for a weekend. The house was a short walk to the town and beach. Great front porch and back patio. This house was perfect for the four of us! We will definitely stay here again. "
Mar 31, 2015 - , Portland, OR

"Perfect Fit

"Enjoyable short stay in Manzanita
The house was very nice, clean and ready to enjoy upon arrival. The location is a short walk to the main street in town for shops and restaurants. It's also close enough to the beach. Also, the patio would be great for a small party."
Aug 06, 2014 - John L., Portland, OR

"Beyond words!!
This was the nicest vacation rental we've experienced at the coast! It is darling, well furnished, very clean, great patio and garden. It was hard to leave. I would highly recommend this property and hope I can rent it again. "

"Lovely lil house!
What a sweet and well stocked little house. Beautiful backyard and very dog friendly. We loved it!"
Jul 17, 2014 - Amanda L., Portland, OR

"Family Fun
We rented the Gray Whale Cove for a long weekend get-a-way with family. We all enjoyed our stay and appreciated the rental. The back patio was perfect to grill out and spend the evenings relaxing after adventuring on coast. Everything was clean and well maintained. "
Jul 17, 2014 - David G., Portland, OR

"our stay
This property is one of my favorites! The beds are cozy. ... and there is not a bad seat in the house. The only complaint I have, would be the $50.00 non-refundable deposit. I think if there are no damages, the renter should get that money returned. Just another way for rental companies to make an easy buck. Next time we'll end up booking through a different agency."
Jun 20, 2014 - Charlie H., Gresham, OR

We stayed at Gray Whale Cove for 3 nights and loved the property. Beautiful home with all the amenities that we needed. "

"Relaxing get away prior to the Christmas rush.
Great location. Never had to get in the car once we arrived in Manzanita. Loved that this house and yard were so dog friendly."
Dec 20, 2013 - Judy H., Bellview, WA

"Great stay
For the 4 of us--my husband & I & my sister & her husband--Gray Whale Cove was just right: absolutely clean & neat, comfortable, very comfy beds, convenient walking distance (we are walkers), everything in kitchen that we needed; an attractive property; good size pretty sheltered back patio with some sun & some shade. The one bathroom was not an issue, as it's right next to both bedrooms. A kitchen table to seat the 4 of us would have been nice, but other than that it was just about perfect. We'll definitely want to rent again when we head to Manzanita. "
Nov 19, 2013 - Carolyn N., Portland, OR

"Great little place close to everything
The house is the perfect size for family. Or for two couples. Once there, you can walk to nearly anything you want in Manzanita including the beach, coffee shops, grocery stores, city park and playground. Beautiful cottage overall with lovely and well maintained backyard and patio, very private as well."
Nov 19, 2013 - , Portland, OR

"Cute little beach house
Easy process to rent beach home. Rental company was available over email to answer questions and get the rental formalized. We enjoyed the house and found it very comfortable overall. My only real complaint is that the rental company seemed to disappear after collecting the rental fees. I both emailed and called just prior to the rental stay in order to firm up check-in procedures. Disappointingly, I never heard back from the rental company, which seemed quite unprofessional. We were able to get into the house with no problems but it still would have been nice to have my communications acknowledged..."
Nov 19, 2013 - , Dallas, TX

"Lovely little get-a-way.
The Grey Whale house was the perfect off beach rental. Walking distance to the ocean and downtown Manzanita, its cheerful colors and open floor plan were perfect for our little autumn weekend away. We were very happy to have a BBQ is use as well as a nicely stocked kitchen - as many rentals you go to have a poor selection of cooking utensils. Everything was clean and comfortable and the backyard is gorgeous! The perfect space."
Nov 19, 2013 - Leslie M., Portland, OR

"Sweet little vacation rental
The Gray Whale was very cozy and I loved the decor. Great back patio for lounging around visiting."

"GREY skyies but a WHALE of a time
This is about the fifth or sixth time we have stayed at the GREY WHALE. The skies were grey and very wet but the house was warm and dry, the beds were excellent and the over all made it a very relaxing and inexpensive get away. See you next year."
Nov 19, 2013 - Holly and Larry B., Langley, BC

"Top quality
Our children live in Manzanita and we wanted a place where we could relax and yet spend time with them. It was perfect. The yard is gorgeous and the bedding was high quality with extremely comfortable beds. Just one bathroom didn't bother us and we loved that the tvs were quality also. Thank you."

"Great Pet-Friendly House
This was our second year at Gray Whale Cove. Very nice 2 bedroom house, close to town, the beach and golf course. Living room and kitchen have been remodeled and are very nice. Bedrooms are a little older, but still suitable."
Jul 24, 2012 - John K., Bothel, WA

"Great Pick for a Rental Home!
We were really happy with the house and location. I loved that the kitchen was well equiped because we rent homes often on trips and this one was excellent. "

"Gray Whale Cove - very cozy!
Everything was very clean, lots of room - cozy cottage. No complaints at all!"
Feb 23, 2012 - , Vancouver, BC

"Gray Whale has a leak in the skylight
My stay was fine, but I wanted to make sure you knew that there is a leak in the skylight nearest the front door. During a 5-hour rainy spell, we were out of the home. When we returned, we saw that water had dripped from that skylight onto the round pillow on top of the wicker footstool. I dried it out. The ceiling shows some signs that this has happened before and it should be repaired as soon as possible to prevent further ceiling damage.
Everything with our stay was fine. I like larger, better beds, but I realize it's hard to have a king-size bed in a relatively small bedroom."
