Neskowin is charming. the location of the "cottage" is right in the heart of Neskowin. Great location. It is a funky kinda quirky cottage which, from the pictures, we liked. Once we arrived, it was a bit of a rude awakening. On the "plus" side, trying to say something positive here - you can tell the place has been loved on by family for at least a couple generations.There are handmade things and knick knacks literally everywhere...like the kind the grandkids buy you from a garage sale. the down side is, they are dirty, dusty and junky and they are everywhere so there aren't many places to actually lay your own luggage. Also, the linens - well let's just say I know they are circa 1970 because my gramma had the same coil electric blanket back then, only this one isn't my gramma, didn't have the cord was long gone and had the distinct hadn't been cleaned in 40 plus years smell that is a gramma...only not your grammas so...yuck. The rest of the linens were old, stained and rather concerning. My kids slept on the couch and the hideaway and we were so grateful they brought their favorite blankets because there was no way they were using those sheets or laying a head on the "garage sale for free" couches. The kitchen baking goods and BBQ had decades worth of carcinogens baked in. There were more locked cabinets and cupboards then there were open ones and we had the district feeling that the "good" (meaning purchased or cleaned within the last decade) linens or utensils were saved from the "guests" in there. Also would not recommend VACASA because while we reviewed the property fairly on their site, they extrapolated a comment we made about the area, which is wonderful, but made it appear as if this was a 4 star instead of a 1 star property. Location - 4 star, property condition- 1, property cleanliness 1.5. Lots and lots of stuffed bears, lots and lots of cobwebs. Also, the shower would have been the perfect height for my 10 year old unfortunately the nozzle and water pressure was so high, she would have been injured. She would have taken a bath but....no stopper.
