                        My husband and I chose the Sea Gem to celebrate our eighth anniversary and nothing about this little cottage disappointed. We will make this our first choice every year going forward. You are welcomed with cleanliness, and distinct design while enjoying the best view in town. Not a detail is missed in this "gem"! From the comforting aromas when you climb into the softest sheets, to the salt water taffy left out to enjoy -- the Sea Gem helped us to relax and create soft + happy memories! Thank you for the wonderful experience!

                        My husband and I stayed here in October last year. It was perfect! Clean, had everything we could have wanted and some little touches that count. We have talked about going back with our two boys, there would be just enough room. The view is unreal, we are from colorado and just couldn't get over how amazing that view is. Thanks so much!

                        My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and it was such an amazing little place where we could just get away from the world. It was such an nicely designed and cozy getaway. We DEFINETLY plan on coming back! Hope to make a yearly tradition out of it.

                        This is our first of I'm sure many returns to the sea gem! Everything was just perfect once again...love the decorating..very clean and well thought out.... everything you need, plus the most fantastic ocean view to cap it all off. Our only wishes were that we could stay longer.....two nights just not enough! We'd love to return early summer and enjoy the back porch...and awesome view!

                        My wife and I spent twelve fabulous days at this gem, and it is a gem indeed! The cottage and yard are beautiful, immaculate. The cottage was clean, has lovely decor, is wonderfully coordinated and shows pride of ownership throughout, inside and out. The view from the picture windows is unmatched! The cottage is well equipped; there is not a thing that we needed that wasn't there. A quick walk down the steps provides for lovely walks along the beach; one direction leads to Ona Beach State Park and the other direction leads to Lost Creek State Park. It is located close enough to Newport to make it easy to get groceries. Its location is also convenient for a multitude of exploring options; such as the Beaver Creek Natural Area, Cape Perpetua, Devil's Churn, Devil's Punch Bowl, a number of lighthouses, various state parks, the Flying Dutchman Winery, Rogue Ale Brewing Headquarters, and the list goes on. I would highly recommend the Sea Gem!

                        After a long journey (12 month in the US) we spent our last days at this very nice place. Everything was perfect. The region, the location, the house and the equipment were great. Even a exhaust hood above the stove - we like to cook very much! We will miss the long walks at the beach and the fish food as well!

                        WOW….. Where do I start? This cottage was perfect. There is nothing negative I could say about it at all. I and my wife were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and we couldn’t have picked a better place. Even though we stayed for a week, we left wanting to stay longer. This cottage has everything you could need for a great stay on the Oregon coast. I would and do recommend the Sea Gem Cottage to everyone. Thank you Winter and Neil for an unforgettable week.

                        We can't say enough good things about the Sea Gem. Adorable, comfortable, well equipped, spotless and well kept. We thought the photos at the time of booking were great, but it is even better in person! Great location. The cottage has beautiful picture windows & has a true beachy cottagey feel but with all of the extras. It was like having a private beach all to ourselves. Easily accessible to amenities (we loved the South Beach Fish Market!!). Groceries, shopping, food and tourist attractions all an easy car ride away. Very easy to recommend to anyone and we will absolutely return again. We can't thank Winter and Neil enough for sharing their little piece of paradise with us.

                        My husband and I stayed at the Sea Gem Cottage for three glorious days. The cottage is very nicely decorated and has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. We cooked all of our meals at the cottage and the kitchen was very well stocked. We walked on the beach every morning...great path down to the beach right from the fromt yard. The photos of the Sea Gem are spot-on! No noise from Hwy. 101, only the sound of the ocean!! Comfortable bed and seating, great bathroom with lots of storage...we hope to stay at the Sea Gem Cottage again!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: Winter and Neil purchased this property in 2009 to be used as a getaway from their daily lives in Portland, Oregon. After completely remodeling the cottage, they began renting it so that others could also enjoy the beautiful Oregon Coast.

                      Why the Owner Chose South Beach:
                      The Newport area is the most beautiful and scenic part of the Oregon Coast in our opinion. There is abundant wildlife as well as the conveniences of a nearby city. Whales and seals have been viewed from the cottage. Seagulls and pelicans fly by the windows and float in the wind. The privacy granted by having a house on the ocean cannot be matched by a hotel or condo.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      The house is built in the 1960's, but has been completely remodeled with tasteful, modern decor, yet keeping some of the original charm. It is challenging to find modern properties on the Oregon Coast, and this cottage will not disappoint.
