"How can 6 girls having a wonderful weekend away not have a fantastic time? The home was comfortable and spacious enough for us all. The only advice we would give the managers is to have a latch put on the inside door of the hot tub. Somehow the door blew shut while we were in there and oops, we were locked in. It's a good thing that two of the gals were upstairs and heard us call. Of course without the latch it made for the most memorable part of the weekend. We all feel that moment will never be beat in our future outings! Thanks much for the memories! And Yes...we would go back in a heartbeat! "
"The View is Amazing! And its nice that it has beach access. We loved the house, deck, hot tub, view, and the list goes on and on."
"We enjoyed staying in the Anchor House and Submarine. We were four couples, all the women named 'Mary'. We took turns cooking dinner; and in general had a very relaxing weekend. The article regarding the Submarine House was very interesting. We would definitely consider renting your house again. Thanks!!"
"Four couples shared the two houses and had a GREAT time. The houses are old and a bit "quirky" but truly enjoyable. Rental agency staff were responsive and quickly addressed all concerns. We travelled as far north as Tillamook and south to Heceta Head, and found the tide pools below our house to be the best around. All of us used the hot tub at some point--and we needed it after the climb up from the beach (which, by the way, is 105 steps plus the ladder). The view from the deck is spectacular. This is a great spot for a memorable visit to the Oregon coast. "
"With three kids, it was great for us to have access to both spaces. The kids could have their own "apartment" while the adults enjoyed peace & quiet by the fire upstairs. We had such a great time, we plan to make it our annual family vacation destination."
"The only complaints I had was that their was a nail on the steps up to the front door that I steped on. It went through my shoe. The only other complaint is that the ladder at the bottom of the long stairway down to the beach was in bad shape. It should be replaced. Or more stairs built."
"I rented Anchor House and Submarine for a weekend get away for my boyfriend's birthday weekend. We had ten people from all over Washington and Oregon meet there and spend three nights. It was such a fantastic time. The view is incredible, the house interesting. We especially loved the set up, the balcony, the hot tub, I have to say, no one wanted to leave. Aside from the weather, it was perfect, but hey, we all knew what the weather would be like in October. We will definately be using A-1 Beach rentals again in the future. The people were so helpful when I called to make reservations. Going to Anchor House and Submarine also has kicked off a tradition for our close friends to have an annual friend trip, which might be the best thing we took away from this experience."
"Overall the stay at Anchor House was amazingly fun. The house offered plenty of room for getting together while still presenting seperation for quiet times. I would happily recommend anyone to stay there."
"1) west facing bedroom window in the submarine leaked over open suitcases.
2) great location
3) house was clean
4) when we called for extra blankets someone came immediately
"This house was great. We had 10 people in our party and there was space for everyone. We just made the submarine the main get together spot. It would be a great place for seperate family's to get together because each "apartment" has a bath and a kitchen."
"Spacious with three seperate units that allowed our family to be together yet provided the privacy we needed. Anchor House has a mordern (looks like recently renovated) Master suite that was perfect for Grandpa and the older original part of the house has a charming 1930's feel to it that this Grandma happened to love! Daughter,son-in-law and our two grandaughters stayed in the beautiful ground floor unit which we used as the main space for family meals, games and so forth. Fantastic views from every deck! We saw so many whales we eventually stopped "oohing and ahhing". Amenities were very good, pots, pans, dishes were adequate, generous were the towels, shampoo, lotion and paper products. We brought our own supply of p-towels, aluminum foil, paper plates etc. and left it for the next guests use. My only regret was that while the views were beautiful, the beach was way down below with numerous stairs to get there that the older knees couldn't manage, but we knew this before we rented so this is not a complaint.
Response time to my rental inquiry was efficiant and informative and Realtor Karen of A-1 was very nice.
Grandaughter had a very happy 9th Birthday. Overall our stay was great! Off peak season so this place cost no more then the number of hotel rooms we usually pay for.
We are sold! We will never stay in a hotel again. Highly recommend this vacation rental and expect that all others listed are just as nice.
"The house was amazing and the view was stunning! Myself and my guests loved the house. The steps to the beach were defintely alot to climb especially with a lot of stuff and a baby but not that impossible. Karen was so helpful and extremely nice. We stayed 5 nights and enjoyed every minute. We will be booking thru A1 Beach Rentals for our annual trips from now on. Thank you for a memorable Birthday vacation!"
"We had a great time very charming place. Would definitely stay again. "
"Everyting about our vacation at your property was perfect except for the squeeky bed in the Submarine house in the bedroom by the hot tub. We had a great time and as we left Monday, we walked outside to be surprised by two little doe smiling at us to send
us on our way. Thanks for everything."
"Nice place, everyone had a good time. It should have been disclosed that the stairs to the beach were washed out, my mom was unable to go to the beach with the grandkids due to the 8' ladder that had been bolted in place of stairs."
"Great stormy weather."
"This is our third year renting from A1 with two years at Pirate's Cove and one year at Anchor and Submarine. We love both properties (side by side) and the location is fabulous. We have found the properties to be well maintained and inviting, with all of the amenities that we need. The Anchor and Submarine was especially nice for our large group because it has three separate apartments and gave everyone privacy, but also gathering space for meals and games. Having stairs direct to the beach is a wonderful bonus and we love to explore the tide pools. Overall, we couldn't be happier with A1 and the rental properties! "
"We've stayed in many vacation rentals and this was one of the better ones. This property was perfect for three different families giving us all a space to have downtime or put the kids to sleep but allow the adults to rejoin. The stairs were a bit of a hike but good exercise and tuckered out the kids. The location was perfectly hidden from 101 yet close town to get supplies. My only recommendations are that in the Submarine house the fridge get fixed as there was a constant drip from the freezer and the couch be fixed so that the cushions stop sliding out and swallowing the kids or ending up on the floor; sharper knives; and an investment into a gas grill. But all in all none of that prevented us from having a fantastic stay. "
"Lovely,relaxing, comfortable, gorgeous view. Thank you for a special weekend!"
"The view at this place is gorgeous and we have an excellent time there! "
"Loved the tie to WWII with the furnishings and pictures throughout. The view of the ocean was awesome and even the 90+ stairs were easy to navigate. It was great not having to drive to reach the sand below. The kids loved, loved, loved the hot tubs!"
"Our family of ten was very happy with our experience at this rental, the kitchen is a little small, but we took turns cooking. We liked the hot tubs very much and the beautiful view was wonderful. We did count 105 steps down to the ladder to the beach, but felt it was a good source of exercise so no complaints there. The Wifi was fast and that was nice. Gas fireplaces comfy. Only one complaint, the smoke detectors are ultra sensitive and even if we opened the oven door to check on food they went off. Thanks for a memorable vacation!"
"We had a wonderful family vacation at the anchor and submarine. It was perfect as we each had our own space but could gather together. Loved the house and the beautiful ocean view. The steps to the beach were not a problem. Great exercise!! Will definately come back. Thanks"
"The rental was great. The view was amazing and the separate units gave us some privacy and space. Loved the rental and would come back even with the 90 steps down to the beach:)"
We had a great time! Loved the view , enjoyed the hot tub, very homey and comfortable. We had so much fun we are planning another trip next year!"
"Five women stayed three days for a Quilting Retreat. This was our 3rd year at this house. It is very comfortable and cozy. We had everything we needed - fireplaces, a great ocean view, and hot tub! When we needed something fixed - help was just minutes away! "
"This is a great rental home. There are three living areas. We each had our own private space plus an area we could get together. The access to the beach was okay, the ninety steps were not a problem even for us older people. Tidal pools to the south and north which were fun for the kids. Cascade Head and Drift Creek Falls were two good hikes in the area."
"Dave and I flew to Oregon from Alaska to spend time with our boys and their families. The two of us stayed in the studio apartment, which was perfect for us. Our sons stayed in each of the other two units with their families. It was perfect to have 3 separate units! We could all be together in the same house, but still have our separate spaces. Most meals were prepared and eaten in the Submarine. Plenty of room for all 10 of us to dine together. The stairs to the beach were very doable for us. We went to the beach 2-3 times a day. The grandkids loved the hot tub on the deck. We had a stupendous time. Will definitely consider renting this property again!"
"We had a great experience having anchor and submarine gave all of us our privacy when we wanted it but also great space to share meals and just enjoy the ocean together. The stairs are steep and feel like they will be overwhelming but ended up being very manageable. We will be back "
"This was our second time at the Anchor & Submarine house, the rental is AMAZING we loved all of the new updates, spectacular views, sunsets and sunrises are incredible. All of our family members loved it ! We will definitely return. Thank you for everything :) "
"Fun place to stay with beautiful beach and tide pools. Our 2 children and their small families enjoyed having their own space as well as the communal deck. Hot tubs were clean with great views also. Only thing missing is a gas grill."
"The whole time spent there was so peaceful and relaxing. I had my son, daughter, and her two kids at the Anchor & Submarine house. My daughter and her 2 year old son took the studio, my son the upper apartment, and my 11yo grandaughter and I had the main floor. We all gathered for meals on the main floor, I got to run on the beach, being the only EARLY morning person there. We got some wonderful family pictures (we all packed a black shirt and jeans) and I cannot wait to go back. I absolutely loved the stairs down to the beach, and back up! Even my 4month pregnant daughter with her 2 year old (almost 3) son had no problem with them. As a matter of fact, the only time she sat down to rest on one of the benches was when I made her so I could snap a picture! It was time well spent!"
"Had another wonderful stay in Lincoln City and our second time staying at the Submarine/Anchor. Could use a thorough cleaning of the entire place, there were ants. Overall we enjoyed ourselves and the private access to the beach. "
"Great family compound with amazing views. Second time staying here and we look forward to coming again. Especially enjoyed the new Weber grill.
"Plenty of room for our growing family! "
"The property directly overlooks the beach. We experienced an added bonus of seeing whales frequently surfacing. The only negative about the property is that it is an older structure-but WELL MAINTAINED"
"The view was spectacular! The location was quiet. The setup of the house was ideal for our family of three couples and two small children. Having direct access to the beach was a real plus. The house is older but has been updated and was well maintained. The TV on the Submarine second floor didn’t have cable or local stations but had a DVD player. Fortunately, we had brought our Apple TV and it worked well with the WiFi. Overall, we had a wonderful time at the coast and would choose this location for our next trip to the coast."
"Our group consisted of three couples and two toddlers, so we were pleased that the house had three separate and private units, each with fireplace and kitchen/ette. Furnishings are newer and nice, and the main kitchen is well stocked. The steps to the beach were doable by the 3-year-olds, and the height above the sand made for good whale watching. We saw one, anyway."
"Beautiful view. Found lots of agates. Saw whales spouting. Nice, protected-from-the-wind hot tub. The rental company was top-notch attending to us."
"Fabulous place for 4 couples to stay! Plenty of room and privacy for all! Gorgeous view from all levels and an easy walk down 90 steps to put your feet in the water. Clean, historical, unique - all the comforts of home! Plenty of things to do in the area! Management company was so helpful in all ways! We will return!"
"This place is breath taking! Very nice with unbelievable views. Loved it!"
"We really enjoyed our stay here. We were a family of 8 and there was plenty of room for all of us. Our married kids appreciated having a room to themselves. The location was perfect for our time in Lincoln City and the beach access was especially nice. The house was well stocked and clean. We would certainly come back again. "
"Submarine property was nice. We had 9 family members staying so we rented the entire house. The top 2 units were surprising old and outdated. In my opinion the Anchor should be remodeled before renting anymore. The heat was finicky and the unit had very poor water pressure. The bathroom door would not stay shut or locked. WIFI was poor everywhere except Submarine unit.
After spending some time in all the units it appears that all upgrades have been put into the Submarine unit. The top 2 units need some attention.
The units have great views and the attached decks are very nice. Short drive to all restaurants/activities in Lincoln City."
"This home was wonderful and met our needs completely. The decks overlooking the ocean were awesome and the accessibility to the ocean was good. It was fun to be so close to downtown Lincoln City. Very clean and comfortable. We caught crabs and clams, visited the aquarium in New Port, and splashed in the ocean. The hot tub was great!"
"We loved the set up of Anchor and Submarine for our family. We especially loved the deck overlooking the ocean and the whales we could see every morning. "
"Unbelievable views of the coast. Very simple rental process and extremely helpful and friendly management company. Sometimes when you’re coming from out of town you feel like your asking too many questions but every single person I dealt with was polite and informative."
"A beautiful house with an interesting history on a fanstastic part of the Oregon coast."
