Depoe Bay house description

Whale Vista Cottage lets you enjoy a close-up, captivating view of the ever-changing oceanfront action. The spectacular ocean views are seen from every room. From the spacious decks or a plush living room chair you can relax and watch a sleek Coast Guard cutter ride the waves, grab the binoculars and spy on the pelicans and sea gulls, watch the occasional sea otter feeding just beyond the rocky shore, or gasp in awe as a huge whale flips its tail and rolls against the rocks below. Whale Vista Cottage provides some of the best whale watching available in Depoe Bay—the 'Whale Watching Capital of the World.'

Why is Whale Vista Cottage so special? Read the Reviews!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: Patti and Michael are long time practitioners in the arts -- a former Gallery owner and a Theatrical Promoter. We now run a boutique tax firm catering to creative professionals.

              Why the Owner Chose Depoe Bay:
              40 years ago Patti first saw Whale Vista Cottage and fell in love with it. Since then, most trips down the Oregon Coast have included a stay in Depoe Bay (and a stroll on the quiet road that passes by Whale Vista!) The tiny harbor, the unique collection of boats that live there, the resident and passing whales, the endless excitement of the ocean patterns there, the many activities and beaches nearby and the serenity of the location are what charmed us to this magical place.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Whale Vista Cottage is steps away from the Oregon State Whale Watching State Park in Depoe Bay. The uniqueness of the house, its furnishings and serenity set it apart from other rentals in the area. It is a special place to relax and lose yourself in the majesty of the Pacific Ocean!
