Oceanside house description

Winter special: if you book for two nights during the week – Sunday through Thursday, except holidays - we will give you an additional weeknight for free!

Spectacular view - lovingly hand crafted, cozy cabin located on the Oregon coast, in the secluded village of Oceanside, west of Tillamook. Beach walks, coastal forest hikes, reading, kite flying, bird watching, crabbing, fishing, windsurfing, boogie boarding, hang gliding, clamming, mussels, blackberries and huckleberries, an historic lighthouse and the Tillamook Pioneer Museum, Museum of Flight and the Cheese Factory are all right at hand (see web links, below).

Our cabin is all wood with lots of windows - cozy and warm for storm watching as well as summer fun. Less than a block from the beach, it is perched on the hill, with a breath-taking, unobstructed view of the ocean, Netarts spit, Cape Lookout, and 15 miles of beach and breakers. Sea lions, seals, pelicans, and lots of other sea birds make their home there and nearby are some of the best whale watching sites on the coast. There are long sandy beaches to walk on if you walk south, and tide pools, caves and big rocks to climb on if you walk north. There are agates and sand dollars to gather on the beach. Cape Kiwanda, Cape Lookout and the Cape Mears estuary and spit are all close, each one featuring nice hikes.

The house sleeps four to six with two double bedrooms, an open sleeping loft with fold out couches and an open living/dining kitchen are with comfy built in couches. There is also a completely separate studio apartment downstairs with its own entrance, that can be rented on its own. It has the same view and sleeps 2-3, with a queen bed and a couch bed. Both units have large decks overlooking the ocean, sheltered from the wind by glass railing. Each unit has a fully equipped kitchen with a view. There is a washer and dryer in the upstairs unit. There is no TV, but lots of books to read.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: Bill grew up outside of Pittsburgh; Carol grew up in Everett, Washington. We met at Reed College in 1972 and have lived in Portland since then, except for 2 ½ years spent in Europe in the late 70s living in Ireland, Greece and Italy. We have lived in inner Southeast Portland’s Ladd’s Addition for over 25 years. We love the Portland area both for its natural beauty and urban amenities. Bill has been a musician, concert and festival producer, the first Program Director of Pioneer Courthouse Square, Director of the Regional Arts and Culture Council, and a cultural development and planning consultant, until retiring last year. Carol worked in advertising for many years as a graphic designer and marketing strategist and currently consults on marketing and information services. Our interests include yoga, exercise, music, cooking healthy meals, attending cultural events, neighborhood involvement, reading and spending time at the coast.

Why the Owner Chose Oceanside:
We discovered Oceanside through a friend in the late 70s, fell in love with its quiet beauty and began dreaming of having a place there. We bought a lot in 1985, when they were surprisingly reasonable. After our daughter was born in 1989, we built our cabin with the help of a friend, a crack team of carpenters and Carol’s father. We wanted our daughter Eva to have the experience and memories that Carol grew up with on Puget Sound–sand castles, swimming and boogie boarding, collecting agates, wading in tide pools, boating, crabbing and clamming, hiking in the sylvan forests, attending the county fair and June Dairy Parade. Oceanside is a world unto itself–one of the quickest and prettiest drives from Portland and, yet, off the beaten track and full of wild beauty–and there’s even a great coffee shop and a couple of good restaurants.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our cabin is a simple and elegant design, all wood, with post and beam construction to maximize the use of space, light and view. We positioned each window ourselves to frame a special part of the view. The house faces south to capture a 200° view of the ocean, beach breakers, Netarts Bay and Cape Lookout–and to maximize light and warmth in the winter, and stay cool in the summer. The cabin has an open, living/dining/kitchen area with cozy built-in couches for reading, lounging and staring at the spectacular view; a fully equipped kitchen for rustling up great meals; and a loft upstairs for kids to play in, or more private lounging. We keep books, CDs, boogie boards, beach toys and rubber boots on hand for guests’ use. The house overlooks the town–great for knowing when to join in on the Fourth of July parade, dog show, Volunteer fire department breakfast, or art fair–but feels quiet and secluded, nestled into a giant spruce tree.
