During our vacations, we like to stay at AirBnBs. Better than a hotel, if you ask me and I can walk around in my underwear in the hallways without getting weird looks. My favorite part is when we leave. Because I get to sign the guestbook and review our stay. Possibly even offer up some advice to the next guests.
Most people will simply leave a “Thanks! We had fun! You have a beautiful house!” kind of note. Not me. That is a disservice to the people who have opened up their home to you for money. They need to know exactly what was enjoyable and what we might change for our next trip.
I’ve written a bunch of these, but it was only this summer I decided to begin documenting it and sharing it with the 20 or so people that come to coryhoward.com. Thanks for visiting, by the way.
This review is of a place we stayed at during the first week of July 2018, just a little south of Lincoln City. It was a beautiful home. Right on the coast. And we had a blast! Even met a pretty cool guy.
Here’s the review. Hope you enjoy.
July 5, 2018
What a vacation! What a house! What an experience!
I’ve lived in houses all my life and let me tell you, this is a nice one! Yeah, the location is great, but my favorite part was the clothes holder things in the closets! They were perfect for holding up my clothes and keeping them off the ground! They just hung there! And there were so many! Since they are triangled shaped, I also used them to trace perfect triangles on the 200 ft. roll of butcher paper I brought, which is a hobby of mine. I traced so many triangles! They were perfect thanks to those things hanging in the closets! I’m gonna have to get me some.
I went into Lincoln City and asked a nice man at the gas station if they sold any triangle tracers that also hold clothes off the ground, but he just looked at me weird and said, “You want regular?” I’ll keep trying, but just want you to know they were appreciated.
What else can I tell you about our lovely stay?
We saw a rabbit. We went to Lincoln City and found this little restaurant called Moe’s. I’m not even sure the locals know about Moe’s, but if you’re reading this, definitely hit up Moe’s! Best hamburger I’ve had in the south end of Lincoln City! If you want the best burger on the north end of the city, try the Mexican place next to the kite store!
Oh, we met Bruce Willis. On the third of July we were sitting on the deck and heard some beautiful harmonica playing coming from the beach. Like sailors to a siren, we were called to it. We walked down to the beach and there he was, sitting on a stump, playing his harp. It was happy blues, not sad blues. When he finished his song, he slowly pulled the harmonica away from his mouth, started into the fire and said, “That was called Moonlighting, which I was on in the 80’s.”
He introduced himself.
“Hit, I’m Bruce Willis.”
“Yeah, we know!” we said.
We chatted for a while. Asked him what he was doing here all by himself and I kid you not, he said: “Just thought I’d come out to the coast, have a few laughs.”
We all lost our s**t!
He said it just like the movie Die Hard!
Anyways, we invited him up to the house. He cooked us spaghetti. He also single-handedly put together the Amish puzzle. Well, about 1/2 of it. He did that in about 2 hours. We left it partially put together for the next people because well we felt bad tearing apart a puzzle Bruce Willis put together.
He crashed on the cough and when we woke up, he was gone. Just a note that said, “Thanks. – B”
So that was fun.
Oh, we also enjoyed the blue plastic coffee mugs. There were only 2 or 3, but we’d all fight over them. I’d recommend getting more.
Also a BBQ.
All in all, great house! Thanks!
– The Howards, Bernas, and Glenns! (And Willis)
