Cottage was clean and comfortable
The cottage was comfortable for the 4 of us (3 adults/1 child). Short walk to the beach and close to downtown.
Being able to bring our little dogs was great too. It was clean and comfortable, everything worked and for a weekend rental in the summer the price wasn't out of line with other properties.
The one drawback was the lack of a useable outdoor space, but since you're at the beach it wasn't an issue.
Thank you for staying with us, please come again - Jackie
Very quiet and well maintained
Property was a little off the beaten track, but for us that was wonderful. Very quiet area and within walking distance of beach and "downtown" Ocean Shores
Quiet, clean cottage close to town
We stayed in Ten Pines Cottage for 2 nights during our first-ever visit to Ocean Shores. We brought two kids (ages 8, 11) and no pets. Based on the other options near town, which are primarily motels and hotels, Ten Pines Cottage is a good alternative.
The cottage is quiet and clean, and a 5-minute bike ride to town and 2-minute car ride to park on the beach for sunset or a day of flying kites and throwing footballs on the beach. The kitchen has enough appliances, utensils and plates to cook meals, though we only had breakfast there. Our boys liked the bunk bed, and the master BR was minimal but sufficient. It'd be nice if there were some hangers in the closets for guests. The shared BA was clean and the water pressure in the shower great after as day at the beach. It'd be nice to have a screen on the BA window so it could be left open for ventilation.
The TV channels were minimal, but the hi-speed Wi-Fi was a pleasant discovery we didn't expect. There's a yard, but it's over grown and not really a place our kids wanted to play. The yard is surrounded with nearby houses that aren't well maintained. So if you're looking for a rental with a view, this isn't it. I didn't see many rental options with a ocean view in town - it's primarily hotels and motels. The beach is long and wide in Ocean Shores, so there aren't places "on the beach" per se.
The town has plenty of things to do for families. The Family Fun Center (there are two locations) is fun for a few hours. The ice cream spot next door has good ice cream and a gaming room where teens can play the latest Xbox and PS4 games in a cool environment. Check out Yelp for dinner spots. We liked Galway Bay and Home Port.
Ten Pines Cottage is a good spot for 4 people for a few nights.
You can't ask for a better location
My family and I had a great time at Ocean Shores over the Independence Day holiday and that was in part due to our comfortable stay at the Ten Pines Cottage. Minutes from the beach and close to all activities and shopping you can't ask for a better location. I would rent from Vacations By The Sea again and would stay at the Ten Pines Cottage.
Glad yoiui enjoyed it Brian. It is one of the newer rentals in Ocean Shores - Jackie
