We loved loved loved our home! Everything was great. Our house was the perfect size for our family of 5 and was in the perfect location.

We had a great time. Staff was very helpful. The house was great. A nice location with fairly easy beach access. I have used Kiwanda many times and never been unhappy Michael Reardon

It was a wonderful stay. Enjoyed the comfort of the home, But beds were a little small for adults. King bed was awesome! Could use a bigger frying pan or two.
by Holly Manning on 2020-02-25
The house was very nice and clean. A very small walk away from the beach and the neighborhood is very quiet. Beds and couch were comfortable. Not one complaint.

Great location for a beach getaway.

Our family had a spectacular Christmas / New Year's in this beautiful house by the beach. The house was clean, cozy and beautifully decorated! I wanted to take many of the furniture pieces home unfortunately I couldn't. We really enjoyed looking at the photo album of what the house was before .. We loved that it was a family tradition.

Wonderful cottage, quiet and peaceful. The windows not only allowed us to hear the ocean and the birds, but they provided a cool breeze on the sunny days we were there. Nicely appointed, very comfortable master bed, and we slept well. The coffee pot broke on our third morning and within 45 minutes of letting the office know we had a brand new coffee maker delivered to our door. The bedrooms are not very big, you can not get a suitcase between the master bed and the corner of the closet but the main living areas more than make up for these tiny inconveniences. Over it was a wonderful stay and I would rent this house again.

Had a good time. Enjoyed the house. Family friendly, clean and close to beach access. Would stay there again!

We liked this comfortable and bright beach house which is located a very short walking distance from the beach. We could hear the sound of waves in the house. The outdoor space needs some cleaning and updating the patio furniture. The outdoor gas grill was a great bonus. We used it many times and enjoyed BBQ meals. We mentioned to the management team there are not enough coffee cups in the kitchen. Also adding a new set of decent carving knives would be great. We did not catch many sunny days during our stay, but we enjoyed our daily walks on the beach and the views were gorgeous.

Loved the house. A few repairs needed but decor was beautiful and location to the beautiful beach was amazing. Great office staff at the rental office as well.
by Maren Biester on 2019-06-06
We had a very positive experience overall. The decor of the home was very well appointed and it felt like a true upscale beach cottage. The location was amazing and we enjoyed our beach access just steps away from the home. We would have liked to have a full set of wine glasses and a more inviting outdoor space with better maintained seating/furniture and a groomed yard would have made the experience that much more exceptional. No cell phone service made it hard to communicate via phone but the Wifi connection worked really well. Finally, a maintenance flooring repair by the french doors leading to the backyard was needed and reported and once that is fixed it will make for a safer entry to the home. Great experience and will return soon!

Our stay at The Dune Grass Cottage was very pleasant. The cottage was charmingly decorated and well appropriated. The location is in a small, quiet beach community and a short block from the beach. I would definitely stay here again.

Kiwanda Coastal Properties were very easy to work with. We stayed at Dune Grass Cottage, which was very charming and a short walk to the beach. It was clean and updated and I would stay there again.
by Alexander Rebielak on 2019-04-30
Special place. The beach home itself was charming and very clean. Neighbors across the street were very nice and welcoming. In short this recent trip has left me with memories I’ll forever hold dear and I thank the Kiwanda team for making it possible.

Everything went well House was lovely Kiwanda was easy to deal with I will leave feed back on ABB

The kitchen was under stocked in terms of utensils and pots/pans. Everything else was great!
by Alison Renz on 2019-04-01
Amazing stay! We will be back! The location could not have been better!

Dune Grass Cottage: great little beach house. Perfect for my family and small dog. Loved how easy and close the beach access was. Made it easy to wake up early for a walk, return for afternoon play time, and return again for sunset viewing. It was great having a secluded beach, we found it much more enjoyable than the popular public spots. Great for small beach feel yet still close by to scenic drives, hikes, and Tillamook. House itself was VERY clean, nicely updated, the fenced yard was great for the dog, could have used a non-stick cooking pan and more drinking glasses, we replaced the salt and dryer sheets because there wasn't enough for our stay; but had a great time, highly recommend, and we'd definitely come back again.
by Tana Simpson on 2019-03-05
Beautiful home. Very welcoming and comfortable layout. Master needs a serious pillow upgrade and the lights fixed but the comfort and location far outweigh the few inconveniences. We hope to be back!
by Stuart Lawrence on 2019-02-26
Dune Grass Cottage is in a perfect location, 1 row back from the beach, able to hear the ocean, so peaceful with no road noise nearby. Property was very nicely renovated and felt spacious, making excellent use of the space for 3 bedrooms, one large bathroom, and one smaller with laundry. The cottage is very light and bright, perfect open dining / lounge / kitchen area. Would definitely rent again. Had to knock off one star as had an issue with the 2 front burners of the hob not working which we found on departure was already awaiting servicing. Frustrating but didnt spoil the stay. Great service by Kiwanda Coastal Properties in providing somewhere to recycle when you drop back the keys. Could do with some more wine glasses and short tumblers if more adults stayed as there were only 2 each. One of the best we found in Tierra del Mar. Stayed in Feb and really enjoyed the escape and beach (plus Pacific City & Neskowin) with our 7 year old. Would be great to return in summer!

House was as pictured and described on website. Bed was comfy and kitchen has basics. Fenced yard was great for our dogs. We loved the location and will book it again.
by Leila Gaoiran on 2019-01-03
Loved the place! May want to have the gas stove serviced. The front two burners seemed defective. The kitchen experience could benefit from some updated cookware. Might be nice to provide at least 1 bundle of firewood to burn. Having to pick up and drop off keys at an office is kind of an inconvenience. I love rentals that just have a keycode to get in. No need to worry about keys or a second location to deal with.

Our second stay at the lovely Dune Grass Cottage in Tierra del Mar. A quite, peaceful neighborhood with just steps away from the beach. Cozy house with all the necessary amenities and a wood fireplace. Pets allowed is a huge plus. Very, very nice!
by Jean Heindel on 2018-12-13
Lovely home. Rental company staff was very friendly and helpful. Security deposit refund could have been refunded a bit more quickly, but not a big deal. We will definitely check rentals with this company again.
by Brian Knier on 2018-10-10
Nice place for a stay at the coast. Some additional glassware (wine glasses) and kindling for the fireplace would make it even better.

This place worked perfectly for us - 3 adults and 1 child. It was clean, comfortable, and nicely located steps away from the beach in a quiet neighborhood. The only thing I would note is that there are a *lot* of rabbits in the neighborhood (apparently a fellow who had pet rabbits let them go several years ago and they've bred like... rabbits). They drove our dog crazy. We had to close the blinds so that she wouldn't just bark at them incessantly. I know this is a tiny thing, but I'm mentioning it in case your dog, like ours, would love to chase rabbits all day long. Otherwise, the place was perfect for us!

by Stacie Jarrell on 2018-05-08
Great getaway house near Pacific City and just a few steps from the ocean. There were a few things that need to be fixed, but that’s normal in any house that is lived in, just normal wear and tear. I would not hesitate to stay here again anytime.
by Teresa Standley on 2018-04-09
Beautiful home and location to the beach. Pictures do not give it credit. The management even took care of us after hours. We will be back!
by Alison Schultz on 2018-03-09
