Here is what you should know -
This rental is located right next to the Jetty. The Lighthouse horn goes off ever 60-90 seconds 24 hours a day. Potential renters should know this! Also, there is a public parking lot right next door. We were greeted with lots of wandering garbage in the yard, constant cars and foot traffic.
The furniture and amenities in the house are pretty inadequate and the layout isn't great plus the heater was inconsistent. It was either really cold or steaming hot!
The Beach access is obviously very close, but the beach area for this rental just flat out sucks! It ranged from about 6-20ft of loose rocks, not sand. Zero fun or enjoyment to be had in this beach location.
THE HOUSE RULES ARE AWFUL! You have so many other rental options that do not require you do clean ever single towell, dish, glass, everything! Before you rent this place, understand that at the end of your stay, they require that you return this house back into the exact condition it was in when you found it! Dishes and all! We have stayed in Bandon every year for a decade (without one issue). This was the first house that made us do such a thing. Most houses asked us to get laundry and dishes going but the Bandon Journey house takes it to a new extreme, requiring you to 100% return the house exactly how you found it, and then they still charge you to have it cleaned.
As expected, even after all of this, they kept our deposit for extra cleaning. It was the perfect culmination to our stay. Needless to say, we won't be back. Learn from our lesson and choose another rental. One without the constant 24hr horn, the awful beach and neighboring parking lot and one without all of the strict cleaning rules and disappearing deposit.
