The Rental Movie House: Where was The Rental Filmed?

Where was The Rental Filmed
Posted by
A pair of couples book an expensive getaway home perched upon the Pacific Northwest ocean coast in Oregon. The perfect weekend in a house surrounded by gorgeous nature turns out a nightmare when they find out that someone may be spying on them and well-kept secrets are exposed.

The Rental is the first feature directed by Dave Franco (the brother of James Franco, The Disaster Artist and husband of Alison Brie, who stars in the film as Michelle. The cast also includes Dan Stevens as Charlie (Beauty and the Beast, Legion), Sheila Vand as Mina (Snowpiercer, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night) and Jeremy Allen White as Josh (After Everything, Shameless).

The Rental House
Almost all the action is set in the house, which essentially becomes another character in this thriller filmed in Oregon. The interior scenes were also filmed here. We found The Rental house on the top of a solitary cliff between the southern base of Cape Arago and the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, north of Bandon (Coos Bay). However we didn't find it available in the most popular rental home website, Airbnb, or neither in The oceanfront property is backed by the timber harvest land. Going a bit more inland is located the South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve, a 5,900-acre natural area with several trails featuring beautiful wild flowers, open water channels, wetlands and forested uplands.

The beach location
The beautiful filming location of the long sandy beach seems to be the Seven Devils State Recreation Site. The movie premiered at the Vineland Drive-In in California and is available to watch on a variety of video on demand platforms. Film director Dave Franco declared to that they were scouting up and down the coast until they found the ideal place located in the middle of nowhere. He spent the night in one of the bedrooms and the large windows gave him the feeling that someone could be watching him.

  1. Good article with only a few "obviously doesn't know the area" parts. First, Barview is just a section of Empire which is just another district of Coos Bay. Cape Arago state park area and one can go no further than the Cape Arago park along that road. So if you ask anyone in the area-Bandon, Coos Bay, Charleston or Empire areas, all would likely say to go via Seven Devil's Road-north from Bandon, south from Coos Bay. And by the way, all of this is in Coos County. Tillamook is about 150 miles north. So anyways, no one here calls any part of the beach there Agate or Sacchi. In fact the most well known Agate Beach is in Newport, OR. Most people would know the closest beach section to that property as being the Seven Devil's State Recreation Site. And it's really not that close to the South Slough Estuary. In fact that area is on the East side of Seven Devil's Rd. The property is mostly backed by timber harvest land. If people are only just trying to see the top of the house on Google Maps or something, it's easier to say it's along the cliffs between the Cape Arago State Park and our world famous Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. This is nothing to publish, just local info. :)
