The Seastar Retreat is seaside living at its best. From the moment you step into the main room overlooking the sea, you enter an expansive world with a view to the horizon. The hummingbirds play hide and seek in the trees while the waves crash against the rocky cove below. The sea breeze blows calmly in the morning while you contemplate your day's adventure. Perhaps you'll take a morning stroll on the beach, or investigate the tide pools for starfish, or carve mussels off the rocks -- a glimmer catches your eye as you watch a whale go by...
Inside the Seastar are all the amenities of home... well, that is if you have an ocean view at home! And you can enjoy the view from the living room, the sun room, the bedroom, the kitchen or the seaside decks. With private access to the beach, it's easy to spend the day exploring the beaches, flying a kite, seeking out tide pools or just relaxing and enjoying the fresh air and sunshine.
*Note: The Seastar Retreat is the upstairs 'apartment' of a home with a separate entrance.

Fantastic ocean front view
Fantastic ocean front view
This is an apartment on the second floor of a house. The first floor is occupied by the owner. The view from this place is simply unbeatable from every room of the house, as well as from a very large balcony. It is also quite beautifully furnished and has some small library of books, and a nice selection of DVDs and tapes. The only negative is that the house is right on the highway 101. However, the noise from the highway seems to be not a problem, because sounds of ocean waves are dominating, and besides the bedroom is isolated from the highway.

I hesitate to write this review only because we have been visiting this property for several years and it feels like our secret hideaway. This is a beautiful rental, fully equipped with whatever you might need to make your stay comfortable. Every time we have visited, the place has been very clean and well maintained. The views from the home are just as described and pictured, perched above an amazing beach with private access via the staircase I have dubbed 'stairway to heaven'. Lots of tide pools to explore and rocks to climb, a short walk form Harris Beach. We have 2 kids who talk about this trip all year long. They spend hours on the beach digging in the sand, dancing in the waves and documenting the contents of the tide pools. We have seen seals and whales just off the shore, although we didn't spot any whales this trip. There is the coolest treehouse in the front yard in a beautifully maintained garden where the kids like to go hang out and play or read. The property is right off highway 101, but has a private gate and is fenced in so it feels very secluded. It is a safe place for the kids to run around and play. There is plenty to do nearby. We have done lots of hiking on the pacific coast trail, visited the redwoods, played in the Chetco, Smith, Rogue and Klamath rivers. This trip we took a jet boat tour up the Klamath river, visited the Trees of Mystery and spent some time lounging and playing around in the Chetco river. My husband went fishing and caught us some tasty fish, I found a great yoga studio in town and took some classes on a couple of rainy mornings. Sometimes it is difficult to get motivated to get out and explore, it is so easy to just hang out and enjoy the view and relax in the huge comfy sunroom or on the decks. We have recommended this place to many friends and family members who have never been disappointed. Love this place!
