Cozy Cottage By The Sea
This vacation rental lived up to its description in every way. Half a block from the Seaside Promenade and the beach. Quiet, friendly neighborhood. The owner stopped by to make sure everything was up to our expectations. Would definitely stay here again.

Cozy Seaside cottage

We had a wonderful stay in Sand Dollar Cottage. The cottage was immaculate and well stocked. Check-in instructions were clear and easy to follow. Very nice, quiet neighborhood close to the beach and downtown. Highly recommended!

Really Cozy For a Fair Price!
I really liked this location. It made you feel like you were a local who has lived there for years and the neighbors were very polite. The Cottage was very spacious and kept us in good company for our stay.

Perfect little cottage
by Maura M.
This place was great! Nice location, cute decor and very well thought out for guest comfort. Many reviews complained about the parking which is not bad at all. In fact, if you have lived in a historic district it’s quite ordinary parking for that type of neighborhood. This place is a great value too, I really enjoyed it here.

Sanddollar Cottage Review
A totally different experience than staying in a hotel! This is certainly preferred! Relaxing, quiet, loved the experience!
Short stay in Seaside
Beyond the general positive review elements below, we 1.Caution older guests to consider that the bedroom is upstairs & the bathroom is downstairs and 2.The slanted ceiling upstairs is not for tall people. We highlight 3 items that could be changed to improve a visit: 1.Upper section of west window upstairs needs a light blocking feature at night to block 3 bright overnight lights from next door motel. 2. Bathroom hinges need oil. 3. Parking in & out is really for a small car only.
Darling Cottage & Location
by Wendy P.
The Sand Dollar Cottage was just as described, perfect for 2 people. The location was perfect, a short walk to the Prom, downtown & the beach. It was so nice to be able to walk everywhere. I would have a few suggestions to make it a bit more comfortable. The furniture downstairs (love seat & chair) were uncomfortable & the TV was quite small. We had to move the chair closer to the couch in order for us both to see it. The upstairs (bedroom) was quite spacious & the bed was comfortable. We would have liked to have a TV up there as there was much more space & furniture! Bathroom is newly remodeled & spacious. One problem was the towels. The bath towels were actually bath mats, very small! Kitchen had everything we needed.
The cottage is delightful - vintage beach decor, very modern appliances and bath, third house from the ocean. The on-site owner was very kind but not intrusive. Did not realize that all the sleeping options were in an upstairs loft, but a nearly unobstructed view made the climb worthwhile.
Birthday time at the Seaside cottage
My husband and I enjoyed the time at the cottage. We celebrated 3 birthdays with family nearby and the cottage was so close to the beach for walking with our dogs. Everyone loved it there! Perfect getaway!
Loved the Cottage, Did Not Love Housing Mix-up
by Hayley B.
We loved staying at this cute little cottage that was only a short walk to the beach and into town. It made for a lovely spring break getaway! The only thing that hindered our stay was a mix-up with the rental company in which they gave the wrong information to another family over the phone and almost forced us to vacate. Overall the place was cute and well-cared for, and the owner was very nice. We would love to stay here again, despite the mix-up.
It’s the perfect location!
You can walk the promenade to town, or step out and walk to the beach, which is right there!!! My kids had a blast! We went with family also who stayed in the big house. There was plenty of space for us all. The washer worked great but the dryer need to be looked at. It gets hot but does not dry the clothes. Not sure why. But we plan on coming here again and again. Thank you so much. The owner was super nice as well and very attentive when we called him about things.
Just What I Was Looking For
This is a charming, attractive, and clean cottage just half a block from the beach--super convenient for walks any time of day. Perfect size for a couple, and with all the amenities--washer/dryer, etc. Highly recommended!

Great little beach house
by Maggie P.
Clean, well appointed beach house. Just 1/2 block from the beach and about 1/2 mile from town, perfectly situated. House was clean and had everything we needed for a 3 night stay. I would caution that the bedroom is upstairs, and the only bathroom is downstairs - can be challenging if you have to get up often during the night.

Sweet little getaway
by Wendy J.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay in this sweet little home which was close to the ocean. The only challenge is parking.
October 27, 2020 - Website
We had a great stay at the Sand Dollar Cottage! The location was perfect- close to the pom, water, AND and short walk to broadway. It was also perfect for my large dog. The driveway is a bit awkward to get in/out of, but it's no big deal. We had a great time here and played lots of Scrabble, Sorry, and listened to the random selection of CDs. We liked the Hawaiian one! I do plan on booking this place again, when returning to Seaside in the future and have already recommended it to friends.
An hour and a half after checking out we realized we forgot all of our food in the fridge! We drove back (having just bopped around town a bit) and caught the nice cleaning lady there. We were able to grab our things, and she was very sweet.

Comfortable, cozy, and tidy - location can’t be beat
Excellent find - property was exactly as described

Good location very close to beach.
The cottage is nice and comfortable. Some kitchen amenities were missing like salt and pepper. It doesn't have outside space to sit and relax but oh so close to the beach. Parking is a little tight.
there really .to be a full size couch in the living room. The furniture was very uncomfortable in the main living area. TV was REALLY tiny. Needed to be much bigger.
Quite lovely 🙂
This cute cottage was just right for us! It was close enough yet far enough away form the hubbub of Seaside. It was convenient to have a nice walk to restaurants and town along with walking along a path by something like a river. From our upstairs' window we had a lovely view of the ocean.
Things are well maintained but some of the hinges on the kitchen cupboards need a bit of fixing. There is a large new building closer to the beach which left many lights on all night which shined right into the bedroom window. I asked them turn them off at night but to no avail 🙁 Bedroom window coverings will need to be updated to allow for this inconvenience.
All in all, we loved Sand Dollar Cottage and when back in the area, would be pleased to stay there again.
by james p.
We had a wonderful time here, especially enjoyed being upstairs with the view and nice sunlight. Very cozy and pleasant time.
Cozy beach weekend
by Dane J M.
Fantastic little cottage in the rear of the property. Seemed to have everything you could need to just relax. parking was a little tight as the driveways are super narrow, would use it again.

Just what we needed
by Erika M.
Had everything we needed. It’s not super updated but everything worked. There isn’t really a bedroom, it’s a loft, so it would be harder with a family or multiple people, but was great for my husband and me. No trace of pets, even though it was pet free!

Cozy seaside cottage.
by Roger L.
This was a clean cottage. Very aesthetic. Had a great view of the ocean from the upstairs bedroom. The only issue was getting tube Wifi set up.

Cute cottage- great location
Comfortable and in a quiet part of Seaside but steps to the beach and a ten minute walk to the action (restaurants, arcades, shops, etc). One noteto be aware of: there are some small windows in the bedroom which do not have shades so the sun comes in early.

A Perfect Beach Getaway
by Melissa E.
The cottage is amazing! Just the right size for two people and two pups. Clean with everything we needed for a few days at the beach. The view from the bedroom couldn’t be beat and it was lovely falling asleep and waking up to the sounds of the ocean.

Great little get-a-way
by Daniel K.
Beautiful cottage, perfect for a couple’s vacation. An idea location just steps off the boardwalk but far enough from the promenade to have some privacy. We already plan to go back. The only recommendation would be a new mattress for the bed.

Everything was perfect, except the bed!
by Katy C.
The mattress needs to be replaced. And blackout curtains available. If good sleep was possible, 5 stars for everything!!
Delightful stay 1/2 block from the beach.
by Wayne R.
Easy access to the cottage. Very nice part of town, quiet and peaceful. You can hear the waves crashing all night upstairs.Small as advertised, but a really nice little getaway home. Tasteful cottagy decor, music, books and games to play
just like your Grandparents cottage. We oved it.
by Laurie W.
We loved the location and the coziness of the house. It is absolutely perfect for a couple. The bed was a bit uncomfortable, but overall a great place to stay!
Sand Dollar Cottage in Seaside
Our experience in Sand Dollar Cottage was terrific. The cottage was perfect for a couple, and located only a few steps from the North end of the Prom. It's a little bit removed from the busier side of the Prom, but still an easy walk anywhere in the "fun" part of town. It was well stocked, and cute as can be.
Or only very minor complaint would be that the parking is not marked at all. The cottage sits behind a larger house on the street, and the parking/driveway are shared. As we were leaving, the people renting the house indicated that we were parked in their space. The instructions from the rental company indicated that there was "well marked" parking to the left of the cottage in front of the garage, which is where we parked, however there are no markings at all to indicate who parks where.

Good spot for us
Awesome time in seaside!

Darling little cottage!
Super clean—cannot tell that it is pet friendly!!! Kitchen is well appointed with nonstick cookware that is in excellent shape and a great set of knives that are sharp enough to make chopping tasks easy!
Love this little cottage!! Can’t wait to stay again!

Cozy pet friendly cottage with easy beach access

Stay was Okay
The rental was overall super clean except for the main bed sheets. Because the rest of the place was so clean I think this must have been a weird oversite. We were thankful there was an extra pair of sheets & we switched them out. Location was nice - close to beach and town. Parking was a little precarious but we rode our bikes a lot. They had nice little amenities within the home. Don’t worry about the heater situation - the fireplace is super cozy & the bathroom and upstairs room have heaters as well. We were never cold! The smoke alarm went off at 2:00 am and we had to get & take it off the ceiling and wrap it in towels b/c we couldn’t find batteries. This is just one of those inconvenient happenstances. Perfect size place for our little family of 3!

Cute cottage, nice location, tight parking
What a cute little cottage. We rented this recently because the price was good for the 3 or us, and the location seemed great. Very close to the Prom, a short walk down the Prom to the center of town. The house is well equipped with a functional kitchen with dishwasher, a washer/dryer set and a modernized bathroom that was spacious and functional.
The main level was very functional with a love seat and matching char, a small dining table for 3 and a gas fireplace. The upper level was the bedroom which had a queen bed, some end tables, plenty of reading lights and a sleeper sofa. The upstairs has a large window that has a partial view of the beach and ocean.
Hits are the great location, comfortable furnishings, modern bathroom, and properly equipped kitchen and laundry center.
Misses include a mediocre bed and only having a gas fireplace as a heat source. After the first night it was clear that the bed was a lower end mattress and was just not particularly supportive or comfortable. As for heating, our visit was in late August and the cottage would get a little warm during the late afternoon. At night it would cool down a lot outside, so we opened up the windows to cool down the place, there was no fan provided for any powered air circulation. Overnight the house would grow uncomfortably cold and apparently the gas fireplace had been turned off or decommissioned, so we had no heat source in the cottage, except for the bathroom heater. We reported this issue at the end of our trip, and felt that the heat/ac situation was the only real downside of staying at this property.
The cottage was very clean when we arrived, much cleaner than what I experience when visiting hotels. And the cottage felt well maintained too, walls were clean and not scuffed up, everything was perfect and presentable when we arrived. Aside from the lack of heat or air conditioning, this is a wonderful place.

BEST COTTAGE EVER
by LYNN L.
Great Location, Great view of the Ocean and Sunsets. Very cozy..ery short to the Prom and Beach. Love this Place. Thanks
Nice stay at the Sand Dollar Cottage
by John C.
We stayed for three nights over Memorial Day weekend. The cottage is conveniently located 1/2 block from the promenade. It was well furnished and had all the comforts of home. Parking access is a bit tight, so you might find it challenging if you drive a larger vehicle (full size truck/suv). My only recommendation would be to install window blinds in the upstairs room to add privacy and keep the light out in the morning. My only complaint was they didn't have the right sized filters for the coffee maker. I bought a 300 pack and left them there. Other than that, it was great. I would recommend staying here.
Sand dollar Cottage
by Joan L.
We had such a nice time at this location the first time that we decided to stay again. The cottage was just right for our needs. So clean and close to the beach. We have two small dogs and the short walk to the beach was perfect for them. The driveway and parking is a bit scary but worked out. We always enjoy going to Seaside and being able to stay at a really nice pet friendly rental was great.
Sweet little house close to the Beach!
Ok first off this place has everything you could need. Its well layed out, very clean, and we didn't mind that it only had a love seat downstairs. Parking was a little confusing but the map on fridge helped. The one problem is upstairs if you need a dark room to sleep in four this place out! There is only one curtine in the middle of the window so the lights from the inn shine in there all night found it very annoying oh and your neighbors can see in too.

Lovely little cottage perfect for two
by Sarah R.
My husband and I came to the coast for a weekend getaway, and this little cottage was perfect for us and our two dogs. It has everything you need (except for a coffee grinder and a tv in the bedroom). We ended up running to the kitchen store to grab a cheap grinder, and we actually moved the TV upstairs to the bedroom while we were there so that we could enjoy it while lounging in bed because the loveseat didn’t allow us to get as comfy as we wanted to while we binge watched Stranger Things in the evenings . It is a cozy little place, quite comfy, and is a very short walk to the beach.

It was the greatest stay we have had . There was nothing I had to figure to take except food and cloths . In fact we liked it so much we stayed a extra day. We will be back.

30 year anniversary trip
by Gary K.
Super cozy apartment, prefect for a quite getaway. Loved the house. Tv is too complicated and kitchen need some dish cloths for cleaning up. That said, we would certainly stay again and recommend it to our friends.
The Cottage was perfect for a couples getaway. Location was great. Five minute walk to downtown Seaside. The beach was just steps away.
The cottage could use a hairdryer and folding chairs to take to the beach.
Nice place with comfy beds and everything you need. The location is excellent because you are next to the beach or you can walk a few blocks to the shops and aquarium.
NICE COZY COTTAGE
by LYNN L.
VERY NICE AND NEW INSIDE. CLEAN AND BRITE. Couldn't park on right side because of the sand pile. Construction on driveway, and very hard to get a Suburban up to the cottage. We loved it.
Cute, clean, and sunny
by Marilyn B.
Bright up Stairs bedroom,(light as day at 5:30am) with a view of the ocean on both floors. Nice handicap bathroom, though no disabled could climb up and down. A printout on where to park, how to run tv and fireplace would have been helpful, wifi? Otherwise, clean, cute, easy access to beach, private, nice.
Cute and clean
We enjoyed our stay at the Sand Dollar Cottage very much! The unit was clean, cute and comfortable. I would recommend a couple improvements, however. It would be nice to have a full-size couch in the downstairs living room (there is a love-seat) and only one section of the bedroom windows upstairs have window-coverings. This was a bit concerning as folks in the hotel parking lot in front of the cottage have a direct view up into the bedroom area. Also, the room gets very bright during the day (for those daytime vacation naps) and having window coverings would have helped darken the room a bit. Other than that, we absolutely loved the place! The driveway is a bit tight so those with large SUVs or trucks might have difficulty accessing the parking space next to the cottage. The location of the cottage was soooo close to the Prom and the beach - and having a washer/drier was a bonus while on vacation. Double thumbs up!
by Jennifer G.
We stayed Mother's Day weekend and the place was exactly what we were looking for. A small cozy cottage with a view of the ocean. Extremely quite place with very nice neighbors. Highly reccomended.
