"Staff very helpful! Look forward to next year!"
"Three families coming together for 4 days of relaxation. It was perfect for us! Loved the ping pong table in the basement for the older kids; fantastic deck; much use of the hot tub; every tool we could need in the kitchen. Only tiny bummer is we couldn't get either CD player to work. A docking station would be ideal. The Cascade Head Nature Conservancy Trail just a short drive north is not to be missed! Loved building a fire on the beach, too. Just wish we had found one of those glass balls..."
"I stayed here with five of my friends to celebrate my 30th birthday. The view is phenomenal the house was large enough to accommodate all of us and spares (if needed). The hot tub was clean and working. The house was completely stocked and 5min drive to town. There were stairs leading down to basically our own private section of the beach. I phoned a-1 once during our stay cause we found a leak in the hose outside and they came in no time to fix it. Overall I will 100% recommend this place!!!"
"I was an amazing weekend. The house was clean and the pictures of the deck did not do it justice in real life. The deck has the best views of the ocean and beach with perfect access from the property to the beach. We built a bonfire on the beach each night at sunset."
"Everything was great! Hot tub was very hot, very was spectacular. Saw whales two days in a row just from the balcony. Televisions worked in both living rooms. Plenty of towels. Very nice stay, we will be going back! I love its proximity to everything. Nice area of town and everything is a 4 min drive away. "
"We had a great time. First time in 4 years it rained. But got to watch ocean all the time "
"great place to stay with lots of room"
"The house was exactly as described and was in a great location. We were able to watch whales on 3 days out of six and one approached to within 50 yards of shore! Lovely deck and hot tub. Well stocked kitchen and ample parking. The basement was perfect for kids/teenagers. One upstairs bed was uncomfortable to sleep on due to a mattress that appeared to have a plastic cover around it. Everything else was great."
"We had a wonderful time! The house is beautiful, the view is amazing, the personal beach access so convenient. We had everything we needed for a relaxing, fulfilling, and memorable vacation. We will absolutely be back! :)
Only one small suggestion to improve this already spectacular house...
The front wooden railing of the deck is a bit wobbly. All it would take would be one overly adventurous/rough kid or an intoxicated adult to fall into it for tragedy to result. A few quick metal brackets for added security would probably be a good idea. Just a suggestion. "
"We had a wonderful time with our children and grandchildren. House was just what we needed."
"Great Great Great"
"Four days of sunshine with relatively light wind. Doesn't get any better than that at the ocean! The house was well equipped in every way. We spent most of our time on the beach which was excellent."
"We stay at Pirate's Lookout over and over because we just can't get enough of the incredible view from the deck! It is beautiful, peaceful, and unforgettable. "
"The first thing we got to the house the lockbox would not open. My husband called and a gentleman was at the house in 5 mins. Then we get in the house and the TV's would not work so we call again and again in 5 mins. they were there. They are on top of everything. The house was perfect for our family. The house was clean and well stocked with everything you need. The views from inside and out. Just sitting on the deck and watching the waves and had some whale sightings!!! How exciting. The steps down to the beach looked crazy but was not as bad as we thought. There are a few landings with benches you can stop and rest on. My husband and I are in our 60's and made several trips up and down each day. Was a great time, our family enjoyed every day. We will go back again. LOVED IT"
"Quiet location with wonderful views of the ocean. Everything was spotless and well stocked. "
"Wonderful, as always!"
"charming house on a beautiful ocean front setting. large deck plenty of room for everyone clean well stocked with plates pans paper products we had a lovely stay"
"We all had a great time.
Thanks Karen for having such wonderful housed.
"loved the house & location. Worked well for our group. We'll stay here again. "
"Great - would go again - this was my second time at this rental. "
"We had a wonderful time at Pirates Lookout for our yearly family beach vacation! The house is very welcoming and had plenty of room for everyone. The views are amazing! The deck and hot tub had spectacular views of the beach. The direct beach access brings you down to a beach perfect for beach combing. We have found our new family vacation spot. "
"Everything was in good working order. We were very happy and will stay again."
"The pictures do not do this vacation rental justice! The house itself was clean, comfortable and had all the supplies needed to stay with my family. The beds were comfortable. The deck was huge and we were able to sit on the deck while the kids played in the hot tub and and one evening were even able to do some whale watching. "
"We had a wonderful experience and the location was just amazing. The beautiful weather didn't hurt either. I would come back again. My suggestions would be to go through the rental and address some minor wear and tear issues that we experienced--ceiling fan needing adjustment, couldn't get the gas fireplace to light correctly and a wobbly deck table."
"We have enjoyed staying at the Pirates Look Out once again this year."
"Beautiful views, love the wall to wall windows. Arrived to find Gene and Karen trying to fix a TV/cable issue - they went out of their way to make sure it was working before they left and we very much appreciated it! "
"We had a fantastic time. The house was nice, clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed and the view was wonderful. We saw whales from the moment we arrived until we left, you could not have asked for a better spot. Location was perfect for shopping, sight-seeing and more. We will definetly rent again and also want to try a couple more of the companies rentals."
"Beautiful clean home! "
"The view was spectacular. The house though was not cleaned well before our arrival. The floors were covered with sand, food wrappers and fruit stems were under window seat cushions, light bulbs were burnt out and light fixtures would not work. Cobwebs and dust were found in every room. We spent the first hour and a half of our visit cleaning the whole house. There was even a blood stained sheet on one of the upstairs beds. Sinks were clogged as well as the downstairs shower. It's an older house, but every home should at least be cleaned, especially when it's part of the rental fee. We have rented from A-1 Rentals before and been extremely satisfied. This was certainly a disappointment."
"This property looks as good (if not better) than the photos. The view is spectacular. We were lucky to have a few sunny days and sunsets during our stay. Lots of whale watching. The beds were surprisingly comfortable and everything was very clean. It's not easy to get to the beach as the stairs end with a hardware store ladder to get the final few feet to the beach. But beyond that, everything was idyllic. "
"Loved the deck! We saw whales in the ocean several times from the deck. The sunsets were amazing!"
"We are a group of ladies that have been spending two nights at the beach every October for nearly thirty years now. It's not always the same group, of course. I have been taking charge of it for many years now as the others didn't want the responsibility. I love organizing everything. This trip was one of our best. We had a mother just out of a nursing home after open heart surgery with her two daughters to assist her. We had another mother and daughter team for the first time. It was great to connect and feel the sustaining power of strong sisterly love. The view of the ocean was grand and the weather was warm and dry. It couldn't have been better. Our main problem was the many stairs, but we were able to negotiate them well enough. We all had a wonderful time and everyone ate way too much. Food tastes better when cooked by someone else. Sincerely, "
"We have stayed @ Pirates Lookout five years, now, and each time we have enjoyed it very much. It's a lovely home, and really does feels like our home away from home. We look forward to our time there in Oct. throughout the entire year. Thanks to A-1 for making it such a special place to relax and enjoy and feel like it's ours for those days out of each year!"
"Even though it rained off & on, we still got down to the beach several times. We enjoyed having the two living rooms - one for the TV watchers & the fireplace room for the adults! Unfortunately, we didn't get to use the hot tub on account of the weather- a good excuse to return some time again! It was a perfect place to entertain our niece & nephew & two children from MN!"
"Extremely clean, amazing views, lovely and comfortable deck, so cozy and wonderful, thank you so much. Definitely rent this place!"
"Our second annual family weekend at Pirates Lookout. Everything was perfect. House was very clean and in good working order. A nice feature is that the house has a bathroom on each of the three floors. "
"We stayed for five night at Pirates Cove. It was a beautiful location and the house was absolutely fantastic!"
"We were a party of five and everyone enjoyed our four day stay at "Pirates Lookout". The home has great views of the ocean, separate family room and living room which included a very cozy fireplace. Plenty of parking which was another bonus. Would not hesitate to rent again."
"Home is comfortable, plenty of room for large family, beautiful views! Lots of whale sightings, and sunsets! Would highly recommend. We will be back next year!"
"Beautiful Property! Would highly recommend it. Lots of space. The deck is huge and the view is amazing."
"Our group of ten senior lady friends enjoyed another yearly 2-night stay at Pirates Lookout. For us the ocean view is spectacular from inside or on the great deck. We also very much like having the large dining table to seat all ten and three bathrooms. Home is nicely furnished and kitchen well stocked. "
"Had a great time once again. We did run out of paper towels and toilet paper. We also could not find any tin foil or plastic wrap. The tv in the fire place room is having problems with it's speakers, they constantly vibrated while we watched movies."
"We had a wonderful time the home was clean and just the right size for us. The view was beautiful. We weren't expecting the ladder at the end of the 99 steps to the beach but even that didn't cause much concern. We would recommend this home to family with small children the deck was very safe for our 3 year old granddaughter. "
"My family (6 adults and 2 kids) stayed here for a week and loved every minute of our trip! The house was nice, clean and had everything we needed. We whale watched right from our kitchen table and saw several whales every morning! When you walk to the beach be prepared to walk down 89stairs and then go down a ladder. The deck overlooking king the ocean is large and with tables and chairs so you you can sit outside and enjoy the scenery. The house was perfect for what we needed. We will be back for another stay for sure! "
" very good hot tub did have sand in it when we got there but it is on the beach enjoyed it all oldest daugter said got hot upstairs needed a fan"
"We had a great time at this property. Great location, clean and pretty roomy. Deck was great size with great views. Railing was a little suspect. Only real draw back for us, a family that loves to cook our own meals, the kitchen was a little small but we made it work. Thank you for the availability of this great place. ****. "
"Had an amazing weekend stay. Cute and roomy place with cozy rooms, fantastic view of the Pacific from the enormous deck, and our very own solar eclipse! "
"Seven of us stayed at the house for three days - and it was a delight. The place was clean and comfortable - we made a big breakfast in the kitchen - the large deck looking over the ocean was wonderful - the hot tub worked nicely. It was a perfect spot to spend time with old friends who love each other's company."
"Had a wonderful stay with my childhood girlfriends at this beautiful home! View was spectacular - so relaxing watching the ocean and also saw whales. Beds were comfortable - lots of space for the 6 of us to spread out - but also loved the big table to gather round to play games. A great stay overall. I'd love to come back here. "
"Fantastic! We didn't even leave the house accept to walk on the beach. Whales, oh so many whales, were frolicking just outside the surf. Pelicans, puffins, cormorants, in abundance. Can't beat the view from this deck. House is big and bright. Lots of room to spread out. Beds could maybe be updated. 2 were really soft (saggy) and 1 was a bit hard. We didn't stay in the basement, so don't know about those. Furniture on main level was great! Very comfy. Everything was clean, too! I would definitely recommend this to my friends! "
"A fun time spent enjoying the ocean and visiting with family we'd not seen in a couple of years. We love this place and return each year @ the end of Oct. We even saw a pod of what we think were Orcas feeding all one afternoon. They were just out a shot distance from the beach right in front of the deck! Thank you for another spectacular stay @ the beach!"
"Overall a great experience. We had a family get together. 8 people. The views were magnificent and the beach being close was great. We appreciated that all bedrooms had at least a queen bed. The dual living rooms provided space for our family and the extra long dining room table was great for not only eating as a group but playing cards and board games as well. My two disappointments were the small size of the hot tub - and the useless outdoor charcoal grill - which was too small, old, dirty, filled with ash, and rusty. I reported this and no solution was offered."
"Pirates Lookout was a perfect house for our family of six. Fantastic view of the ocean. Enjoyed sitting, visiting and shooting night photography on the big deck. Also took advantage of the hot tub. Stairs to the beach was very nice. House was very spacious, clean and well equipped. Appreciated the prompt response time for information and questions. "
"Nice and roomy for 8 adults, Kitchen is a little small, but made it work. The pans are not good at all everything stuck to them. The bigger tv of the 2 did not work, they tried to fix it but couldn't said they would bring a new cable box but didn't. "
"Three couples enjoyed the house. Location was perfect as we could see the weather approach from the ocean. The house was neat, clean, and tidy. The kitchen was complete with everything a group would need. Even the dishwasher was quiet and efficient. We all agreed that we'd stay again without hesitation. "
"Very nice home. Comfortable with awesome views."
"The rental was great. Huge house plenty of thing to keep a 13 year old busy. She lives the book nooks. The hottub was wonderful morning and evening. The stairs to the beach were long but worth the beach access. Over all a very nice trip and experience. "
"The deck is amazing and it makes the house. When I first walked in I was a little confused about the layout. There are three levels, a bed and bath on the main floor with the kitchen, two living rooms, and door to the deck. There are two bedrooms with a bath upstairs, and the game room/garage is in the basement, along with the laundry room and the fourth bedroom (the one with the queen bed and two twins). I say all this because I hadnt realized the layout of the house and it wasnt the best, in my opinion. However, the deck makes up for everything. It was perfect for the week and the private beach access is stellar. The kitchen is a little small but it was supplied with most of what you will need, lots of flatwear, and utensils. "
"Great stay! It's a nice property, great location, views are amazing from the great deck/patio and don't forget about the endless beach front. The tide pools were fun for all. The only item that could be a problem for some is the smaller kitchen, stairs to the upstairs and lower floor bedrooms, not an issue for our party. I would book this property each and every time if available "
"Been renting from A-1 for years so I know they have a Steller reputation but this time our stay was the worst. However a lot of it was out of their hands/control and what they could improve on they apologized for and the concerns were addressed and handled with professional curtesy by Karen. We will be back!"
"Party of five, stayed seven nights. The views from both inside (upper two floors) and the deck were terrific with plenty of space for our group. The nearly private beach access (though understandably steep) was great to have. We did not use the hot tub. Response to an urgent repair issue we had was very prompt and well-handled. Lower level was a bit musty so we didn't utilize it as had been originally intended. There were no screens in most windows, so we ended up buying our own temps locally to provide bug-free cross- ventilation. Kitchen was small but functional, though it would have been helpful to have known in advance of the reservation that cooking fish/shellfish was prohibited. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much, with a good possibility of returning in the future. "
"Immaculate home beautifully appointed with a Pirate theme throughout, pristine beach with blowing whales out front everyday, starfish and sea urchins in the tide pools, bald eagles flying overhead! And the deck...oh the deck! Perfect beach house for a perfect vacation. Thanks for the hospitality! We had a wonderful time!"
"Fantastic. Rental was clean and the views were amazing. Gigantic deck and windows galore. Two living rooms with fantastic views."
"The beach house was perfect for the 10 people (8 adults & 2 children) in our party. The deck was spectacular. Very large, a great view, very nice condition. The interior was just like the photos. Very clean. Well decorated. The stairs leading down to the beach were challenging but this was alluded to in the description of the property. A great experience. Everyone enjoyed the hot tub. The large TV in the family room did not work. The owner came out then called the cable co. to resolve the problem. They came out but were unable to fix the TV"
"I recently rented Pirates Lookout for a long weekend getaway for my sister and me and our 6 children ages 7 through 14. All of us were impressed with the home, from the amazing views and comfortable living space to the unbeatable beach access. We enjoyed some of the best tidepool viewing weve ever done, just steps from the beach stairs! Aside from time at the house, we enjoyed hiking at Drift Creek Falls and surf lessons, too. We found the home clean and well stocked with kitchen ware, towels and paper products. One of my favorite things was enjoying the sunset from the Adirondack chairs on glass protected deck. Some evenings required a blanket, but there were plenty to be found. We would absolutely recommend the home to others."
"We had a wonderful family reunion at Pirates Lookout! It was so spacious and clean and offered an absolutely stunning ocean view from the deck. We were able to watch whales at play at various times of day. The kitchen was well stocked with an impressive array of tools, glasses and dishes. The team at A-1 Beach Rentals were wonderful to work with and we will definitely return to this beautiful home away from home! "
"We had the best time exploring the tidepools and watching the whales. It was the perfect fix for our family!"
"Very cute and fun house. Saw whales from livingroom window. Loved the deck! There are many stairs to the beach but very sturdy and manageable with nice resting benches. We all felt that our six day stay wasn't long enough! :)"
"Our family loves this beach house. It fits us perfectly, is pretty clean, and best of all-has it’s own access to the beach. We are repeated guests at Pirates Lookout because of the amazing ocean views. We come here to enjoy the beach and this house delivers. This year, we really enjoyed the new BBQ grill that the owners have purchased right before we came. If you love the ocean as much as we do, you will enjoy staying here."
"Pirate's Lookout was perfect for our party of 9: 6 adults, 3 teens. Kitchen was tight for multiple chefs, but it worked out fine. The two living rooms were great. The kids played ping pong many times, and enjoyed having their own place to hang out. The hot tub was perfect. The deck was amazing; that alone was worth the rental. We spent each afternoon just hanging out on the deck in the adirondack chairs, looking at the ocean. We walked down the steep stairs to the beach (and hopped down the last 4 ft) to go skimboarding and walking. The ladder back up to the stairs was easy; no one struggled. The beds were not the most comfortable, but that's typical of any rental - no bed is as good as your own! Overall, it was a great time and we would rent Pirate's Lookout again. "
"This was our second stay at Pirates Lookout. We came back because it has a really great view and a good layout for couples. The double living spaces makes it nice for having a couple of spaces for people to gather. We really like that we all fit at the large dining table. The kitchen is tight, so we can only have a couple people in there at a time. The view is really amazing and we love the expansive deck and seating. The hot tub is a nice touch, although we feel it's too small for this size of house. It will fit 3-4 people and our group this time was six, but the house will easily accommodate 4 couples with extra beds in the basement if needed for kiddos. It's quite a trek down to the beach, but basically private once you get down there. We really enjoyed our stay. Would have loved to have had some movie channels available on the TV and the board games are in quite disarray. "
"Seven of us have been friends for over 50 years. We are spread out all over the country and come together once a year. This is the most beautiful place we have ever stayed. Everything you need is there to enjoy and have fun."
"Our family; 4-ages 16-18, 4-ages 21-25, 2-ages over 45 :) and 2 new babies. We stayed Thur-Sun in Sept. The home had an amazing deck with stunning views. It was clean although not ready at 3pm. Cleaner finally left at 330 with a few items undone. Towels and linen supply were good, the basement was very musty. So much so we went and bought air freshener. The kitchen was extremely small, no counter space, stove was in an awkward location and it was poorly stocked. Ie; no basic seasonings. Everything worked properly. The 2 upstairs rooms were very stuffy. Even with windows open. Ceiling fans or at least box fans would help. The ping pong table was nice but in a tight, odd space in the basement. The property description should better describe the very steep and long stairs to access the beach. We were aware because of other reviews. They were a great workout but hard with babies and beach supplies. The beach area is amazing! We enjoyed our trip but probably won't rent this location again due to the home having a lot of stairs and next year our grandbabies will be toddlers."
"The house was very nice. The only thing was all the stairs...getting too old for those! Great view, if it wasn't so foggy. We had some trouble getting the TV to work. Always seems to be an issue an any beach house. Not sure why it has to be so complicated. Loved all the windows."
"Not quite as spotlessly clean as usual, and only partial rolls of TP in the bathrooms, but otherwise, wonderful as always. We love coming to Pirates Lookout each Oct., and truly do feel like it is our beach home. Thanks for allowing us to enjoy this lovely place. "
"The location was perfect. There are 100 steps to get to the beach but it didn't bother either kids or adults. Views from the house are amazing. Hot tub was great. House overall worked for us. Good house for a big group."
"Great view, deck, and hot tub. "
"What a fantastic weekend! Sooo relaxing to visit with friends and soak in hottub and watch whales play in front of the house. The extra free day gave us much more time on Sunday to not have to leave early. We stayed till early evening and finished the weekend out still relaxed and unrushed. All our wants and needs were met at this rental!"
"Our group had a wonderful time at this property. We stayed over new years and the beach was pretty empty, save a few dogs and morning walkers. If you have kids they will love the tide pools. The rental pictures don't do the view justice, and we were definitely surprised by how much space we had. Definitely thinking about coming back again. No complaints! Just remember to bring your own speakers if you enjoy music in the house."
"This was our fourth year at Pirates Lookout. The house is very comfortable and fits the five of us perfectly. We love the view, the hot tub and the deck! There is plenty of room to play games or scrapbook. "
"We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Pirates Lookout. The home is lovely and the view was spectacular. The perfect house for a relaxing honeymoon. Thank you!"
"The place was great. clean, lots of beds, ocean view was amazing, plenty of parking, I would do it again."
"This well maintained beach house is a wonderful home to just watch the waves, curl up and read a good book in front of the fire, or attack a puzzle on a rainy day. The beach is just below - yes there are alot of steps to go down but just think of the exercise you are getting."
"This was our 3rd annual girls weekend with our mom. Thank you for the use of your home it was great and the view was spectacular. The weather didn't cooperate for using your large deck and chairs so we'll be back. The kitchen was well stock for all our cooking needs and bedrooms were all very nice. Will definitely make plans to stay again we had a great time."
"The house is getting tired, we have rented for years there. Chipped paint inside and out, toilet running & mold behind lid, toilet handle, Repair man had to come first hour there, Double Mattress downstairs needs to be replaced. Just needs some TLC but we love the house."
"Except with an issue with light switch for stairway heading to upper floor (this needs to be checked out) all was great. "
"This rental was overall amazing. Between the all of the space, the amazing view, the hot tub and the quick access to the beach, it was a perfect way to get a little R&R and celebrate birthdays for a girls weekend. It was close to town, but far enough away to feel peaceful. We absolutely loved everything about our stay. I definitely plan on coming back and using this same rental!"
"We absolutely loved this house. The location could not be better. The kids loved it, we saw star fish, a lot of star fish on the rocks right by the house. "
"Gorgeous sunsets, cold ocean dips, warm hot tub mornings, comfortable sleeps, all around positive. Thank you"
"The house was amazing. Right on the beach - beautiful sunsets from the deck. House came supplied with everything you would need including a fully supplied kitchen!"
"We had a lovely coast stay in this home! Loved it! The view is amazing! Small kitchen, but we didn’t cook much at all so it didn’t matter! Great sitting and sleeping spaces. Perfect for our family! "
"This home is everything it is advertised to be. We had absolutely no problems. We were there 7 nights and saw grey whales every single day. Most days they were directly in front of the home all day long. Great location for exploring the coast north or south of Lincoln City. I would recommend this home and return given the opportunity. "
