Description

552 FOREST STREET

1 QUEEN , 1 QUEEN SLEEPER SOFA, SLEEPS 4, PET FRIENDLY

Recently renovated; new kitchen appliances, total bathroom renovation , a new gas barbecue, and new boardwalk to outdoor shower. (new pics to come, complete Dec. 21st ) 

In the very early days of Seaside, town architect Richard Gibbs and his partner chose to design and build their own personal rustic cabin in the woods just as Forest Street was beginning to be developed. Way Back is their original and well- preserved cottage in this heralded beach community. Among the most frequently rented and beloved one-bedroom Seaside cottages over the years, tranquil and cozy Way Back retains its Seaside architectural authenticity.

Among the very few pet-friendly rental cottages in Seaside, Way Back is ideal for a solo traveler, a couple or a small family. Positioned just three houses from national heritage listed Seaside Chapel, Way Back provides a private and relaxing connect to the core of Seaside. A stay at Way Back provides perfect venue for beach access (a five minute walk), vibrant town center restaurants and shopping and wooded trails for hiking and bike exploration.

A reserved parking place in front of the cottage leads via a timber boardwalk through a shady front garden with outdoor seating to the spacious front deck. Furnishings and artworks have been updated in the ground floor living/dining/kitchen area, while the original timber walls and floors are reminders that inspired architecture and craftsmanship never go out of style. The compact stainless galley kitchen features a new fridge/freezer/ice maker, new countertop convection oven, new four-burner gas cooktop and a small microwave.

An easily accessed staircase leads to the queen bedroom with Juliette balcony in the treetops. The updated bathroom features a new heated floor, new vanity and shower refreshed with new fixtures. Recent additions to the bedroom area include a clothes closet and credenza with ample storage. New outdoor additions to Way Back include a gas BBQ grill, outdoor shower and refreshed landscaping.

Rentals include high speed wi-fi, cable TV in the living room and bedroom, two bicycles, access to swim, fitness and tennis centers, beach pavilion access, and a beach bag of arrival welcome amenities, including wine. The downstairs queen sofa bed expands maximum sleeping capacity to four. Pets are welcome with a one-time supplement.

* 3-night minimum Spring, Spring Break, Summer, and Fall | 2-night minimum Winter. Must be 25 years of age to rent and sign registration.

Very nice overall. Front grate broken on arrival, WiFi inconsistent, grout in bathroom should be redone. Now that that is out of the way, very cozy place, great location, everything we needed, complaints are minor- really just thought someone should be aware of these, they didnt really affect our vacation.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this positive review of Way Back and the Homeowner's Collection team. We certainly appreciate the comments and will communicate them to our management team right away. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you back on your next visit to Seaside.

This was a beautiful, quaint little cottage for our family to stay in! The walk to the beach wasnt long, it felt slightly tucked away from all the crowds and was just everything we needed for or vacation! Highly recommend staying here when you visit Seaside!

Be aware, this is a small space and is set up accordingly. However, there was plenty of space for my two teenaged daughters and me. The couch was so comfy it never even got pulled out into a bed. I was pleasantly surprised to find a full range and nearly full sized fridge, and the dining table is on wheels so you can move it to the middle of the room and have plenty of space. The only thing I would say it needs is a full sized broom instead of the little dustpan it has. Location cant be beat - close enough that I felt safe letting the kids go into town by themselves but far enough from the action to be quiet and peaceful. Would stay again.

What a fantastic getaway for our family of 2 1/2! We loved every second of our time at the "Way Back" cottage. The location was perfect for us - we loved the bicycles that came with our rental through homeowners collection. We could either walk or bike everywhere we wanted to go. The beach was such a short stroll, we enjoyed it thoroughly! We can't say enough great things about the cottage itself. It was warm and comfortable, very clean and had plenty of room for us! Thank you so much for such an enjoyable vacation!
