We love this beach house. We have stayed there twice now. It's got great views, lots of room for 10 people, plenty of bathrooms, all things you could possibly need. Plenty to do including a nice hot tub. Thank you!

We found this home with ocean view and private path to the beach a comfortable, spacious, clean place for the ten of us. Six adults and for children ages 6-12 found plenty of indoor games for family fun. The living space was spacious with cozy comfortable furniture in a large living room. After an active day, the hot tub was a bonus. This house is close to Ocean Park groceries. It is a short drive to fun in Long Beach. We had a happy stay here b

Manager's Response

Thank you Marilyn for the lovely review. It is great to hear First Mate's Cottage had ample space to fit your group of ten and that you found there were plenty of indoor games for the whole family. Relaxing in the hot tub is always nice after an active day, I am glad we could accommodate all your needs.

Very nice home. Lots of amenities to make the stay comfortable. Furniture needs updating (recliners broke) as well as some minor repairs that need to be done. Nothing that interrupted our stay. Game room was awesome for kids. Grocery store nearby. Property manager was AWESOME!

Manager's Response

Hi Robbie, thanks so much for the update on First Mate. Recliner is being fixed as I write this. We will be looking for the minor repairs. In any 3 story home with dozens of amenities small things will need our attention, but we are on top of it!

What a great family rental! Game room, hot tub, and plenty of beds. Absolutely loved the private trail to the beach. It may be windy but we had two days of no rain, great for the winter. Inside we were warm and comfy with the fireplace. Our dog was welcome which was great. Easy to deal with Bloomer representatives -Thanks Kathleen for being so professional and helpful!

Manager's Response

Hi Kim, we are so happy to enjoyed your stay and appreciated the home. Happy to hear you loved the private trail to the beach and stayed warm and comfy with the fireplace on days it rained. The Game room and hot tub are wonderful perks as well. Thank you for the call out to management. We do our very best to provide amazing service to all of our guests. Reading reviews like this make it all worth it!

The house was roomy and had a lot of perks. View of the ocean and a short walk to the beach. Nice hot tub, and big yard with "play" equipment. Nice kitchen and bathrooms. Short drive to Long Beach.

Manager's Response

Hi Jean, thanks so much for the review and great scores, First Mate is one of our most popular rentals now-people love it for all the reasons you mention but also because is just one block away from the new Crown Alley Pub. We do hope we will see you again soon.

This was our 2nd year staying at the First Mate Cottage. Our stay was even better than the first...exceeded all of our expectations. We requested a King bed for the downstairs bedroom and amazingly they provided that for us! We love it here.

Manager's Response

Hi Constance, we aim to please. It was a real pleasure getting the King bed for you. We do all we can to provide great customer service and we LOVE it when it is recognized on the reviews. First Mate is an awesome house-we are selling out every year. Be sure to book early on your next trip.

We 4 seniors have stayed here for a 5-night girls' getaway during the last 3 Septembers, and just made our reservation for next year. The house is clean and comfortable, nicely furnished and well-equipped. We love the private path to the beach and the ability to bring 2 dogs. We all hate to leave!

This year was the vacation that almost didn’t happen. We had been planning for months and the week before we were to leave we experienced a family crisis. But thanks to Kathleen’s compassion, professionalism and extraordinary customer service we were still able to make our stay possible. The experience, the family time and the house itself was everything we needed at that time. Priceless is the best word to sum it up.

Manager's Response

Wow, what a lovely review and thank you for the call out. We do all we can to make sure our guests receive the service they deserve, and it is always a joy when we hear such wonderful feedback. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

We loved our stay, home was very clean, kitchen fully stocked, plenty of towels, and comfortable living spaces! Kids loved game room and outside toys. Path to beach was right behind home and that was wonderful...little walk but not bad. An absolutely perfect stay!

Clean and spacious rental. Our family was able to spread out and enjoy all of the various activities throughout the house & property. The kitchen is fully stocked. Beds were comfortable. The ocean was a pleasant 5 min walk. Beautiful beach, ocean and landscape. The town of Long Beach was a short drive away and it was a really fun town. Nice firepit with benches surrounding it. Before our visit, I had to contact the agency with questions and they got back to me quickly and were great to work with.
I do wish they recycled. Another garbage can outside is needed (it was half full when we got there as it was). The foos ball table was broken, basketball game did not work and there was only 1 horse shoe, but those things were negligible compared to everything else.
As a whole, the rental was fantastic and our family thoroughly enjoyed our experience there. Definitely hope to return!!

Manager's Response

Hi Debbie, thanks for the review and the call out to management. We do our very best to provide amazing service to all of our guests. So sorry to hear about the foosball table and basketball game. Those have both been fixed and we found the missing horseshoe. If you stay again, please give us a call so we can take care of these items during your stay.

This was a great house with lots of room. The hot tub was excellent and the kitchen fully stocked. We were especially impressed with maintenance services and their quick response to a heat issue. I will definitely use this company again, maybe in a house with a few less stairs.

Manager's Response

Thanks so much for your feedback and near perfect rating. The owners appreciate all 5 stars, and as such, have fixed and upgraded everything everyone has ever asked about. As such, they have fixed the heat issue!!! They installed a brand new furnace over New Years weekend. Problem solved, we hope forever. Unfortunately, we can't do much about the stairs, but there is a lovely view from the third level bedroom: )

What a great place to relax and enjoy the laidback vibe of Long Beach Peninsula! Wonderful gathering areas to do puzzles, games, enjoy the fire, and well stocked and open kitchen to create a meal with more than one cook! Relaxed in the hot tub (although a roof would be nice in the pouring rain :), strolled down the private path to the beach, enjoyed downtown Long Beach, and 5 of us comfortably watched football in the living room! We will definitely be back!

Manager's Response

Thanks so much and we hope to have you back soon. There is a bit of a trade-off on the roof for the hot tub. while it would provide great rain protection, in the summer you won't be able to sit in the hot tub under the stars. Either way, we will ask future guests what they prefer.

We had a great time at First Mate's Cottage! The house was clean and the beds were very comfortable. A short walk to the beach and a view of the ocean in the master bedroom. The best stocked kitchen I have ever seen. We stay at the coast at least once a year in different areas and this house was one of our favorites. We did have a mishap with the bbq and my daughters didn't pull the bbq out from the wall before cooking and it damaged the house. Kathleen was so nice to work with and even though it was an expense we were not expecting she softened the blow. Very nice people. We will be staying again...well hopefully if they will allow us;)

This home was clean, well stocked and situated in a very quiet and relatively private neighborhood. The ocean pathway was easy and fun. The home satisfied our variety of "must have's". For seven adult wishes for: unobstructed view / ocean front, hot tub, complete kitchen, fire pit (w/wood) deck, wi-fi and tv, clean. At the start of our stay the main water line broke in town. The Boomer's management and staff immediately supplied us with two cases of drinking water and additional jugs of drinking water. Management followed up by keeping us posted and making sure we were hooked up again asap. Great stay. All seven adults and two dogs ENJOYED!

This is the third year in a row that we have rented this home. It is perfect for our family. When you have to find accommodations for children and grandchildren and dogs, there are very few options available. The home is well-maintained with many conveniences included--right down to bowls, plates, and silverware. There's also coffee in the cupboard. This is very important when you roll out of the bed in the morning and have forgotten to bring your own coffee.
There's a short walk to the beach which is also a plus--especially for oldsters like us!
We love this place!

We rented the house for two couples and one dog. We had plenty of space! What I noticed right away in this home was that it is very clean. I felt comfortable walking in my bare feet. Also, the kitchen is spacious and well appointed. We had some bad weather while we were there but the house was cozy and we enjoyed working with a few puzzles that were there. I give a big thumbs up to the owners for the artwork and furnishings. Nobody likes to stay at a rental when it feels like there are just a lot of "leftovers". This house has just the right about of homey-ness. We truly enjoyed our stay. Oh and the hot tub was awesome as well...nicely maintained!!

Awesome stay. We had 2 family's with 7 people total and 2 smaller dogs and there was plenty of room and we never felt crowded. The trail to the beach was easily to walk and well marked even to walk back after dark. It was well stocked with anything you could possibly need. The only thing that was missing was salt. With all the other spices that were provided I'm guessing this was just missed and it didn't hinder us at all. We brought a lot of our own spices for cooking but of course we forgot salt too. It happens.

Manager's Response

We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. Yes, we normally stock salt and pepper, along with a lot of other amenities not on our website. You are right, an oversite on our side, and I promise you, the net time you come, the salt will be there : )

We had a wonderful experience staying at First Mate's Cottage for my 40th birthday. We had a large group of 20 people so we also rented the Admiral House next door in order to accommodate all of us. These houses together were a perfect fit for our group. The large yard at First Mate was great for the kids to run around while the adults lounged in the chairs provided. The house was clean and offered all the kitchen amenities needed. We had so much fun in the rec room downstairs playing ping pong and Foosball. You do need to walk along a private trail to get to the beach but this seems pretty common in the Long Beach area and was not a problem for our group. Bloomer Estates was very helpful in suggesting houses that would accommodate our large group.

What a great experience! This was the first time our family has rented a house. It was so nice to have the comforts of home. The home allowed for individual space as well as great family space. The pleasant surprise was the home had clamming gear. We were so excited to go clamming. The home was very close to the ocean but most times we chose to drive to the beach. The clamming was great! We had never clammed before but quickly learned. Even our youngest 6 was right in the middle of the action. Our only complains were minor. The TV remote in the main room didn't work but we quickly found that if we took one from another room it would work. The beds were also in need of replacement. They did not bother me the first day but by the fourth I was ready for my own. Also as some else mentioned the fire place would not stay lit. We even pulled out our super secret Boy Scout skilles and it would not stay lit to enjoy. It was such a shame since there was plenty of fire wood. Over all a great experience that will be changing the way our family vacations.

Manager's Response

Thank your for your review, Clamming on the peninsulas is such a fun experience we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. We will look into replacing the remote for the living room TV and see what can be done with the mattresses, for your future endeavors with Bloomer Estates please do not hesitate to call with and questions or concerns, we would have gladly brought over some fire starter to help get that going.

Very comfortable house for our 8 adults & 2 kids. Volleyball was a great hit - unfortunately the horseshoes were missing so we bought our own so we could play. We've been coming to the area for years and we like this location - close enough to everything without being right in town. We can't endorse the bottom futon in the basement room - very thin mat on large round rails made it impossible for the 13 yr old to sleep on it or it was the couch for her! I've spoken to management and I really hope the problem can be corrected before we return! And speaking of downstairs, there were no screens on any of the windows so nobody was comfortable having them open in case of bugs and little critters.

Houses next door are not too close, almost feel by yourself in the area. Path to beach is fun in itself and beach is great. No complaints.

We were more than satisfied with our stay at First Mate's near Long Beach. All as advertised, plus the furnishings and amenities were of good quality, and well chosen. Our daily walk to the beach was enjoyable and took us through fir and pine trees across the dunes, drawn forward by the roar of the ocean. Not far from conveniences.

We are happy you enjoyed our beautiful home, thank you for your review.

We rented in this area for the clamming,However this house is a bit far away for the good clamming.But with beach access for cars not far away we made it work and loved the clamming.The house very nice,very clean, and very comfortable. A bit of a hike to the beach down the trail for some, but others enjoyed the trail and the exercise. It is also a bit far from town.

Manager's Response

Thank You for your review, First mates cottage is almost centrally located between each town, 3 miles south of Ocean Park and about 7 miles North of long beach, with beach access from the home as well as Klipson beach approach 7 blocks to the North. For the best clamming spots please don't hesitate to call our office, the locals are very helpful as well:)

One thing I love about a Bloomer Estates house,.. I know it will be clean and accommodating with the cooking supplies that I need.
This home was very well stocked. The big yard with a path to the beach is a plus. Plenty of parking and fairly private. We loved the house. Very "homey" feeling. There were seven adults. We could sit in the living area and watch football games or sit at the dining table and play cards and still all be together.
During the winter, some heat in the basement might be nice. It was kind of chilly down there.

Manager's Response

We at Bloomer Estates thrive to make our guest feel as if they were staying at their second home with all the accommodations needed to enjoy a wonderful vacation, we do have portable heaters available as well, please always feel free to call, no reasonable request will be refused.

Thank you for such a great review

Our extended family of ten had room to spread out and not trip over each other. The large kitchen allowed for multiple cooks while others visited in the big living room and others lounged on the spacious deck. Our favorite feature however, was the long driveway through the trees - makes you feel secluded.

Manager's Response

Thanks so much for the nice comments, and we agree, the drive is gorgeous and it is very quiet at First Mates. Plus you feel as if you have the beach to yourself. We do hope you will come back and visit again.

We all enjoyed our stay at the First Mate's Cottage. It was clean and up to date with all the amenities. Plenty of choices for cooking utensils and pans. Lacked nothing. The grill was amazing. We had fresh halibut on cedar planks and it was delicious. Purchased from Jesse's in Ilwaco. We would stay in this cottage again.

Manager's Response

Robin, Wow, fresh halibut on cedar planks! You really can't beat that! The owner likes to call the house a cottage, but as you can see it is much more than that. We will see you on your return!

We really enjoyed our stay at the First Mate's Cottage. Although "Cottage" is an understatement. Our family enjoyed the spacious and very clean home. It had everything we needed and more. The ping pong table was a hit with our kids and we all enjoyed the short walk to the beach. A great bonus is right across the street is Jimella & Nanci's Market Cafe where we ate a wonderful meal. We are seasoned vacation home renters and this home was one of the nicest we have ever rented.

The home was very roomy and comfortable for a large group. We had 10 people, 5 couples, and we felt like we had plenty of space and privacy for everyone. We also liked walking to the beach and being a little off the beaten path. No traffic noise etc. Very nice accommodations. The property managers were also helpful and even came to the house when we couldn't get the television to work. Highly recommend this house and location.
