Description

552 FOREST STREET

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

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.  The dining space features a compact table and two chairs which easily expands with an included extra table leaf and two additional chairs. 

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.

Way Back has everything a you need and nothing you dont. Comfortable, clean and quiet house set back in the town of Seaside. The town also does not disappoint with beach, food and shopping all close at hand within walking distance. No need to go off sight. Truly a wonderful weekend for a couple looking to getaway for a few days.

We had an excellent experience with Homeowner's collection. They were very attentive, even texting us to remind us of beach access code changes during our stay. This house is super cute, we had 2 adults and 2 kids which worked fine for a short trip, but I think it really is sized best for 2 adults.

Way back is a cute and comfortable cottage located in the back of Seaside. The small house is perfect for a couple looking to enjoy all that Seaside has to offer. The location of Way Back was perfect. We were close to the chapel, tennis courts, and the adults only pool, (loved my quiet time there!). The Square and the beach are a short walk or bike ride away. The cottage is situated toward the back of the lot which allows lots of room to enjoy some privacy while preparing dinner on the gas grill. In addition to the 2 chairs on the front porch, two additional Adirondack chairs and a bike rack are also located in the front yard.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay in this cute beach cottage. It had everything we need and would stay here again. The only downsides were no dishwasher and no washer and dryer.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this positive review of Way Back and the Homeowner's Collection team. We apologize for the lack of dishwasher and washer & dryer in this cottage. We have many other properties that do have both of these amenities for your next trip! We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you back on your next visit to Seaside!

Would go Way Back!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Way Back cottage was amazing! All of the amenities were great and the college has a really good use of space! The bed was a little small...but that's my only thing! I really loved it and would definitely visit again!
