Property description

Wide, sweeping ocean views and fantastic sunsets are yours in this lovely area of Oregon's central coast.. Just a quick walk to Silver Sands neighborhood steps to the beach to enjoy! This two-bedroom vacation rental is newly updated for you and your family. This affordable lodging allows you to splurge on other local treats. Nestled in a wooded setting, in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood between HWY 101 and the beach, , 'My Cousin's Cottage' is freshly painted, carpeted, renovated and decorated with plenty of high-end art, and interesting antiques. Treat yourselves to this quiet retreat away from jangling phones, TVs and other electronics. A sanctuary-like comfortable space with natural woodlands surrounds you as you enjoy the quiet back deck with your morning coffee and conversation or just a good book. In the evening, a lovely glass of local wine or microbrew could accompany the yummy seafood from the abundant ocean ports just minutes away.

The master bedroom, with its 1800's antique walnut bed, features a small private bath and a large walk-in closet. You'll love the casual, eclectic assembly of fun, interesting furnishings and art. The guest bedroom has a queen size bed, large closet and large tub/shower bath across the hall.

Plenty of windows to enjoy the woodland views, catch a glimpse of the local red fox, bask in the ocean breezes and hear the surf. Family meals are easy with fully equipped kitchen, dining area and rear deck allowing relaxing, fun meals indoors or out.

Even when you are on vacation, you too can wash clothes-- (full laundry facility with washer, dryer).

Well-behaved, tidy dogs are allowed. Dog-friendly equipment is on site-- yard is NOT fenced.

No smoking is allowed on the property.

Garage (one car) is over-sized, with lighted work bench if you really want to repair that bicycle. Concrete driveway allows for two cars in tandem.

This rental provides easy access (less than 20 minute drive) to the nearby coastal towns of Newport, Seal Rock, Waldport, and Yachats. Many local fun festivals take place for the whole family (and dogs, too) year round. Explore the myriad of terrific eateries and shopping along with hiking and biking trails, State and National Parks nearby. Farmer's markets, microbreweries, wineries, and delicious wonderful bistros and bakeries are all around and manned by intriguing locals.

Kids will have days of fun at the renowned aquarium and historic port in Newport and then return back to splash in our neighborhood stream. Fly kites on the beach, build sand castles, play frisbee, watch the seals and walk miles with Fido. Build forts and fires-- enjoy sunset cook-outs. Driftwood State Park(well named) is adjacent to our neighborhood. Our magnificent beach is exceptional-- open, long and wide with gradual shallow depth--easy wading (fun in a negative tide!). Lots of beach grasses, interesting beach combing--especially after those famous winter storms!

To maximize your privacy, cleaning services are not included during your stay. Fresh linens will be provided to guests staying longer than one week. Mandatory housekeeping service at the end of your stay ($75 minimum-up to 3 hours).

Our Silver Sands Neighborhood is quiet and peaceful with many local residents and only a few rentals. This is NOT a party place. Please observe the 15 MPH speed limit.

Plenty of free WIFI hotspots in the area. Cell phone service is reliable-- feel free to call me if you need anything during your stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: After many fun years in the health care industry (research pharmacist , pharmaceutical sales and marketing) , I moved from Colorado to enjoy my family ties in Oregon --where my grandfather homesteaded. I live full time in Ashland, Oregon. I enjoy travel, walking cooking,, gardening, bridge, theater, good friends and my doggy, Honey.

Why the Owner Chose Seal Rock:
I loved to join my cousin in her home here at Seal Rock after moving to Oregon. When her happy, long stay (23+ years) in this home ended, I purchased the cottage to enjoy with friends. I have had fun renovating and invigorating the home to share as a rental with others in this special spot. I hope you enjoy your time here. It is a fascinating area.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Walking with my grandsons, friends and my lab on this beach is wonderful--no matter what the weather! I can watch them play and run for miles and know that this area of the Oregon coast is especially safe and friendly for my loved ones. Good coffee, family, friends and doggy-- beautiful sunsets. Wow! I am blessed!!
