You Snooze, You Lose!


That's right. You snooze, you lose! Always plan ahead for best selection - and ask about last-minute deals, too!  


While most reservations in July and August are for longer stays, we always have 'gaps' between rentals that you can book*. Of course the sooner you call, the better! 
Book your summer fun, NOW.

*Weekend 2-Night stays during July and August are subject to a nightly surcharge. Please call for details.

Summer is in full swing in Manzanita. The 4th of July was a huge success with hundreds enjoying the pancake breakfast at the fire house and folks lining the streets for the parade. The fireworks show on the beach was better than ever! We have stellar weather in the forecast and homes available, so if it's Manzanita you're craving, call us!

In this edition we'll tell you about some changes the City of Manzanita is making and look ahead to our special discount in September. As always, please use our events calendar to plan ahead.   
Lodging Tax Hike Effective October 1st, 2012 

The City of Manzanita voted recently to raise the lodging tax for short term rentals from seven to nine percent effective October 1st, 2012. This rate applies to any property within the city limits.

To beat the tax hike, book now for a stay any time in July, August or September. Call us soon at 866-368-3343.

Destructive Chewing
At OceanEdge Vacation Rentals about 50% of our homes are dog friendly. Please remember that we have a one-dog limit per home, and your dog must have graduated into adulthood. Puppies love to chew, and they usually don't ask to whom that tasty chair leg or coffee table belongs! We want to be able to offer accommodations to your dog wherever we can, and with your help as a responsible dog owner, our homeowners will gladly continue to extend an invitation to your four-legged companion, too. Thank you!

Want to bring your champion Frisbee dog to Muttzanita! in August? Better call soon! 866-368-3343  


We hope you enjoyed our newsletter. Almost every month of the year we have a special offer to share with you!

Wherever you go this summer, whether your local city park or swimming hole, or to visit us to rest, relax and renew in Manzanita, please be safe.

May the summer of 2012 be filled with the best memories yet for you, your family, and all your dear ones.
