Oceanside house description

If you're looking for a place to relax and gather your wits about you, this is it. You can go beachcombing and hiking and crabbing and clamming or you can do nothing at all, just sit and watch the beach or watch movies with a terrific sound system.

You can eat dinner at Roseanna's Cafe in town or Schooners just down the road (and a new one right in Oceanside) and Michkos in Netarts for an great burger or you can cook gourmet meals in a kitchen that has everything you need, including spices. There are so many choices, but no matter what you decide to do, you will feel cozy and peaceful and welcome. There's nothing stuffy about the house, so prepare to feel at ease.

              Suitability

              • Non Smoking Only:

                Absolutely no smoking allowed at the house or on the deck. As a nurse practitioner, I feel strongly about people not slowly doing themselves in at our beach house. Please respect this and rent another house if you feel the need to smoke. Some guests have chosen not to respect this request, and have tossed cigarette butts off our deck onto our neighbors property. They were really unhappy about this and so are we!...moreless

              • Children Welcome:

                There is a steep staircase that could be difficult for very small children - there is a baby gate to close it off available at the house. But this staircase makes the house somewhat dangerous for small children. I have a 2 year old granddaughter and she does fine but we watch her carefully as she goes up and down, for sure....moreless

Of course, there is a great restaurant in town, within walking distance, if you choose to not cook! There are also basic condiments in the kitchen - sugar, flour, coffee, tea, oils, spices, ketchup, mustard, mayo, salad dressing. Help yourself! We go down all the time to stay as a family, so we just keep bringing stuff and leaving it there for you to enjoy....moreless

              • Kitchen:

                The kitchen overlooks the living space so the cook doesn't feel like she/he are missing all the fun. The island in the kitchen serves as a work space and then a nice place to all sit and dine. Three very comfortable bar stools with arms that pull up to the table add additional space for people to watch TV upstairs. There are a total of eight barstools to eat at the table....moreless

              • Catering Available:

                We don't exactly have catering available, but I'll use this space to let you know that we could do a crabbing trip for two in Netarts bay with breakfast or lunch. Can't promise crab, but it is fun. check with us on price....moreless

              You can do a 5 mile hike with ocean views to Cape Lookout. WARNING: this hike is not for young children or the inexperienced hiker. Also, the Tillamook Cheese Factory is close by and children love that - great ice cream and so much fun to see how cheese is made. There is an old blimp museum in Tillamook that's interesting and often things going on at the fairgrounds. The Lincoln City casino is about an hour away as are factory outlet stores, but you can avoid those things easily if you wish.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1993

              About the owner: I'm a nurse practitioner and my husband is a retired fire chief. We're hoping that the people who want to stay here are looking for a home that belongs to a family and feels like a home, not a rental property or motel. So far, we've had incredibly good luck with people staying here; everyone has been respectful and treated this like their own home, we are so grateful. We hope if you chose to stay here, you'll feel pleased with your selection and renewed when you leave.

              Why the Owner Chose Oceanside:
              We bought our home in Oceanside because it isn't a typical tourist town. There are two restaurants (and good ones), and one coffee shop in our town, but a fabulous long beach. Within 2 miles, there are two other good places to eat and two small stores for supplies. Within 9 miles is a good sized town (Tillamook) and an amazing cheese factory. But we will never be even close to having the feel of a Seaside or a Cannon Beach. If you're looking for more goings on, you won't be too happy here. But if you're looking for some time to reconnect with your family or your partner, I think you'll be pleased with our home.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Lovely peace and quiet, great beach walking, amazing views from the deck, a completely equipped kitchen, and comfy beds. The tide pools at low tide are so interesting, and if you like crabbing and clamming, it's just two miles away.
