Due to the price we paid for this rental "our third stay here" I was disappointed that the dishwasher was out of order. I should of been notified of this and it was'nt recent since there was a laminated professional notice on the front-not just hand written.Also, when I did the load of laundry as requested the know is broken off so only choice was small load and not enough water "I checked" covering items to get clean, kind of left me unsure that our linen was thoroughly cleaned. Besides these two issues "important I think" it was a nice stay and we enjoyed the house and the beach. You don't need to post this because of what I wrote, it is mainly meant for management so these issues can be addressed.

Location, location, location! We loved being right on the beach. Everything worked fine but dishwasher died during our stay. We loved the fireplace and the views.

Overall our experience was good. The cottage was older but quaint, view of ocean was spectacular and home was clean. Neighborhood was very quiet. We would stay there again.

This house was a disappointment! I have used Meredith Lodging a few times and have always found the homes top notch, however this one failed to delivery. The dishwasher was broke, the TV in the master did not work, a knob on the washing machine was broken off, the sofa was missing buttons, there was a dead fly smashed on a window and live flies in the house, and no kitchen essentials (salt, pepper, cooking oil, ect.) . This house felt like no one cared about its condition, location is really the only positive about this property!

well the house didn’t look like the pictures that were online. The furniture was sparse and in bad shape. I feel like it was falsely advertised. As far as the rims and location that was good. The dishware was very sparse. 5 forks for 4 people? Not good. Overall I think we had a pretty good time.
David B. June 23, 2018
Very much enjoyed the stay. Will stay at this house again. I feel the furniture should be upgraded as time and budget allow. The twin bed closest to the door squeaks whenever movement occurs. Would like to see a larger recliner for us larger individuals. Perfect view!!

We had a good stay, we were notified prior to coming that the dishwasher didn't work and we were compensated for that inconvenience. We appreciated Mary at Meredith, she was fantastic and displayed great customer service. The only things we had problems with was the internet was not working upon our arrival and the hot water was not hot. We called Meredith and they sent out Mario to repair these items. Mario was great as well, very personable and communicated with us all he was doing etc. Kudos to Mary and Mario. Lastly, the only suggestion would be to add more furniture, it seems bare and somewhat uninviting.

The views of the ocean were super and the weather was more than perfect.

However, the interior of the home was lacking in many areas. The dishwasher was not working, which wasn't all that bad, but there was not enough dish soap or dish towels to wash and dry the dishes by hand for five days. To add insult to injury, we could not wash the dish towels because the washing machine was broken. There was not enough bedding for the sofa's hide-a-bed. The upstairs bedroom's TV only had apps on it, making it impossible to use it.

It would have been nice to have a couple of deck chairs to use on the deck.

I think you should reconsider how you market this home until these items are corrected.

We love this house and have visited in many times and will be back! This time however there could have been more silverware and towels, also the washer water level was broken so we could only do small loads.
Vicki H. June 3, 2018
We had a lovely stay at Changing Shores. The house met all of our expectations especially the view and the beach. Spectacular! We had excellent weather and did see a few whale spouts but no whale sightings. Overall I would give the rental a 4 and 1/2 rating only because the stairs need to be made more user friendly. (Anti-slip material) If you're looking for a glamorous beach front vacation rental, this probably won't fit the bill. However if you're seeking a cozy and private beach cottage that has all the amenities, then you won't want to miss out on Changing Shores. We would definitely want to stay here again.
Jessica W. August 18, 2018
We had a pleasant experience while staying. Beach access was very easy and the back yard was very private feeling. We appreciated being able to bring our dogs. The only con I would say is that there was not much in the way of kitchen utensils (pans, mixing bowls, dishes etc.)

Beautiful, relaxing vacation spot.
Kathy S. June 11, 2018
Loved our stay in this beach house!! The house is adorable, high ceilings rock fireplace, and unobstructed ocean views. The beach was nearly empty and our dog had a wonderful time. The only improvement would be more seating and a more comfortable sofa in the livingroom, and more outdoor seating. We will be back.
Norma F. July 17, 2018
It is a great house with wonderful front/ back yards. Location is excellent. It needs some attention however. BBQ is dead and had an empty rusted tank. Might as welll not have one. Eating utensils were grim. 4 forks (one was a baby fork). More plates, etc to avoid constantly using the DW. Screens on windows would be nice. Access to electrical breakers would be good. All super fixable things. Simple but adorable house. We had a great time.
Karen S. July 13, 2017
My husband and I have stayed in this quaint little house twice now. It's perfect for five people. We love the beach access, how clean the house was and how bright it is. It's in a very quiet neighborhood.

Wonderful time here, nice home, great beach access, great weather.

We had an amazing time and the house and town were lovely.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Lincoln City for the total eclipse experience. Changing Shores is as advertised, charming and oceanfront with beautiful views of the ever-present ocean. The property, while not luxurious, is quite comfortable and reasonably well appointed. Records indicate that the house was built in 1925, and has the feel of a solid, well tended historical gem, and we were charmed. Great vacation!
Anonymous August 5, 2017
The house was very clean. And the view amazing!
Anonymous September 20, 2017
This property is more accurately described as an oceanfront cabin. The interior is a bit rustic, but it is a great home base to do day trips out of. The views are amazing and even though it isn't the fanciest house on the block, the direct beach access is wonderful for folks like us who enjoy morning walks to the tidal pools just a half mile north. After the sun goes down, it is easy to stay warm with the gas fireplace set in a two-story petrified wood chimney.
Carrie M. November 27, 2017
We would definitely stay here again for the location.

However, when we arrived the tv's weren't working and there were only 6 spoons and forks for a family of 4.

We had a lovely stay at Changing Shores in July. The house was clean and well maintained and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The location is amazing! We enjoyed having our own steps down to the beach.
Anonymous October 18, 2017
We loved the quaintness of the house along with the private access to the expansive beach. We would definitely recommend this house. Road's End was a nice, quiet place to visit in October.
Anonymous September 19, 2017
The location was perfect for us. The house is cozy yet perfect for 2 people. My only suggestion would be do invest in some furniture for the deck. 1 plastic chair and 1 fold up camping chair just don't cut it.
Shawn S. April 9, 2018
Overall we had a wonderful time! Location was great and access to the beach was easy. The house was clean for the most part. Some of the furniture needs to be updated (couch missing buttons on the cushions). The dishes in the cabinets were a little dusty so we had to wash them prior to using them. There was only 1 chair to sit out on the deck. This house can accommodate up to 6 people. We had 5 people with us so more chairs are needed for outside. The "app" was a great tool and easy to use. thank you for the effort that has been put into the app. Overall we had a very nice time and would stay here again!

The vacation and home were perfect. The pots and pans could use updated. Usually can find extra blankets for cover up but had to take them off the bed thist time so extra throw blankets would be nice.
Anonymous December 21, 2017
Location, beach access, and view from this home are amazing. This home is just the perfect size for a small family and is really cute.
We did have an issue with the blower on the fireplace going out in the middle of the night but I have to applaud the Meredith Lodging staff as they were very responsive to our needs and had it replaced the following day while we were out enjoying the beach.
I would definitely reserve this home again.
The only negative was a small area rug that had obviously been soiled by previous pets in the home that immediately attracted our dog. We rolled the rug up and stored it in another room so that we wouldn't have any accidents from ours and never had any other issues. I would suggest replacing that rug.

Very dated house. Heating system is extraordinary loud all night, alternating between bangs and loud high pitched whines throughout.
Mary Jo B. July 23, 2016
Mary was the absolute best - helping me with an internet issue! Super quick response - most satisfied.
Anonymous February 4, 2016
although it states no more than 2 vehicles, it should be noted that there is room for two small vehicles. it was very challenging trying to park two full sized trucks. other than that, very beautiful.
Anonymous February 25, 2018
This was a perfect location!! The management company was excellent! We did have a handful of issues that were handled. The kitchen needs an upgrade with cooking supplies. We had 3 guests but only 2 chairs to sit outside. Light fixtures and heating system didn't work but we made it work. If everything was fixed, we would come back in a heart beat!! Thanks Meredith property!!

I planned this vacation for months for my daughters birthday and graduation. As a single mom it took some time to save for a beach front rental. The dishwasher was not working (I spent an hour fixing it) the bathroom door wouldn’t close and the flooring was coming up and the stairs to the upstairs loft were dangerous. Aside from salt, we had to buy everything we needed just to make a meal. Every beach rental our family has had in years past provided the basics so it cost so much more than thehundresds we already paid by the time we left. Then we spent checkout cleaning because it turns out we had to run the dishwasher and start the linens after taking it all to the laundry. By the time we were done it was as clean as on arrival but we paid a cleaning fee. So we didn’t have time to go to the beach on our last day because we had to be packed, clean and leave by 11am. We didn’t even have silverware for a meal so I ate pancakes with a spoon. The photos made it look very different than it turned out to be. I think the most disappointing was that I expressed this in an email with photos and didn’t even get a response. The view was beautiful but I paid for a house too and failed on my daughters big graduation birthday gift. Still sad a week later...

We loved the home and the view
Molly S. February 20, 2016
This cute home was perfect for our little family! The views and beach access were perfect and the house was in great shape. Just be careful if you are very tall because the stairwell height dwindles at the top. We will definitely stay here again!
Anonymous March 16, 2016
Nice to get away, although not very cozy. Sources of heat were very limited. Inadequate window covering towards neighbors lead to a lack of privacy inside the house. Parking space is for one, with out crowding the neighbors.
David B. April 26, 2016
Charming beach house with a lot of character. Great location and a relaxing place to stay. Access to beach down some treacherous steps that could use some repair. A nice getaway spot.
Kyle K. March 27, 2016
Beautiful home with tons of character and well supplied. Gorgeous views! We can't wait to come back!
Anonymous July 6, 2016
We really enjoyed our stay, but we were disappointed in a few minor things. While this is a pet friendly home, I would think all bed linens would be changed before the new guests' arrival. Not only that, but pets aren't allowed on furniture (understandably). There was black dog hair throughout this home, including on the sheets on one of the beds. There was enough there that it looked like the previous dog had its own bed for the duration of their stay and it seemed like the floors weren't swept. Not all dog hair will pick up in one cleaning, but it was obvious cleaning was rushed in this home.

While a vacation is to unplug and relax, we were excited to learn that there was wifi at this home as we had some important documents to esign during our stay and we had little to no cell service in Road's End. We appreciated how quickly management attempted to address this matter, but there was still no wifi by the date we departed. There is also phone in the home, but it is not in service.

A dresser or closet of some sort would be nice in the master, as well as a second nightstand.

Again, really minor things. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again!

Great location house and the had everything we needed. This house is great for familys. I would definitely stay again :)

We had tons of fun at Changing Shores. Loved the view, location, and private beach access. The house is in great shape.
Melody R. March 23, 2016
We had a fabulous experience. Size was perfect for us and the beach access was so convenient, our dogs loved it.
Would suggest measuring cups and spoons, also a shovel in shed for dog poop pick-up.
Tansy W. April 6, 2016
This home and location was perfect for our family of 5. The character of the home suits us well. All kitchen things needed were provided, it was clean, and well maintained. Great location. We will hit this one again!
Anonymous September 4, 2016
We love Changing Shores!! My sister and I discovered this perfect vacation rental several years ago. We stayed a number of times and then it was off the rental market for awhile. We're so glad it's back on!! We have so many memories from this home. We'll be back!!
Would love to see a few updates to the living room furniture and outdoor seating.

The house was the perfect size for us and the ocean view was amazing. The house was more worn than it looked in the pictures and a few items were either not working or broken - bathtub drain in downstairs bathroom not working, window in laundry room broken, no screen on downstairs bedroom window and 2 big stains on the carpet upstairs. However this did not take much away from the great vacation we had in this home. We really enjoyed Lincoln city and surrounding towns - everyone was very friendly. Also, thanks for the recommendation of Barnacle Bills. - great smoked fish, probably the best I had. Hope to stay at the house next year if it is still affordable.
Laurel H. December 21, 2016
Five of us stayed for a long weekend and we loved this cozy place and breathtaking view. The furniture looks okay but is not comfortable and the beds are awful. That really marred our stay. The petrified wood fireplace is charming, and the gas wood stove provided nice heat during a cold spell in winter. Probably will not stay again in spite of the charm because of the beds. Kids voted for the condo where we stayed last year. Internet slow, NO ATT cell service here

My husband and I have stayed at this property in September for the past 7 years. We love the location and the quaintness of the house. It's just the right size and has everything we need. I love the upstairs loft bedroom and the views are fantastic. Over the past 7 years there have not been any upgrades to the house and it is beginning to show a lot of wear and tear. Considering that the rates have continued to increase, it is disappointing that nothing has been done to adequately maintain the house. This year, the living room furniture was finally replaced, which was greatly needed. However, sadly the furniture is very, very cheap and uncomfortable. I would love to see some nice comfortable furniture added and maybe a fresh coat of paint inside the house. Also, there is a large stain on the carpet in the bedroom. I noticed that it was mentioned by other reviewers earlier, but nothing has been done about it.
We love staying in this house, but it is definitely time for some TLC.

our stay was just what I was looking for. beautiful view of the Ocean clean house nice yard.
Angie B. October 29, 2016
This property was OK. The location is great, and the windows in the living room and kitchen are great. The living room itself lacks comfort and full size FURNITURE. We found it very awkward to really relax and kick back in that living room with the strange layout and tiny furniture. Consider getting a bigger couch, possibly a sectional and arrnaging things so you can have several people
on the couch and actually lay back, watch tv, relax, and enjoy that beautiful view. The tiny chairs and placement of things are just strange. We honestly wont be back because of this. The stairs going up to the bedroom seem sketchy as well. The bed made both of our backs ache each morning. The stairs going down to the beach were nice. Kitchen was pretty well stocked. Nice yard, great beah access.
Cheryl O. October 18, 2016
We've been renting this home for almost 10 yrs and love everything about it! The only slight improvement that could be made about our last stay is to provide some sort of all-purpose cleaning spray so that we can clean the kitchen/bathroom counters, etc. during our stay. A few more bath and dish towels would be great also. This is not a complaint but a suggestion for future stays. We will continue renting this wonderful home!
