  • Wonderful stay with great service

    "Our apartment provided everything we needed for a comfortable stay on the coast. Clean, organized, with a well-stocked kitchen for easy food preparation. And above all, excellent service. We had special needs which were met with hospitality and courtesy and the extra effort that makes you feel like you're being well taken care of. Will recommend highly to everyone."

  • Fantastic

    "This is by far one of the most enjoyable stays my wife and myself have experienced. We stayed 4 nights in the bottom unit. The amenities that were supplied were by far above and beyond our expectations, very, very clean and tastefully decorated. The view was spectacular, we actually had several whale sightings from our living room. Walt and Vicki were amazing hosts and they really are only moments away. We didn't find anything wrong or need anything, but if we had we were assured it would be taken care of promptly. Great collection of DVDs and CDs for our enjoyment. Outside sitting area needs to be experienced to appreciate, take time to enjoy it, it really is very relaxing. Depoe bay is a hidden treasure in itself. We will definitely come back and stay here, hopefully for a longer visit. Thank you Walt and Vicki for your hospitality and wonderful memories."

  • Big Chill Reunion Oregon Style

    "We are a group of travellers in our 50s and 60s who met 5 years ago in Europe. Our homes are in Canada and in the US. We have managed to get together as a group at least once a year in places like Palm Springs, New York, Colorado and cruising the Danube. This year’s reunion was held at The Sanctuary at Seal Rock. After reading the other 5 star reviews, we felt confident in making the booking one full year in advance. Dennis was very easy to deal with and answered all our emails and phone calls quickly. Payment arrangements were easy. When we drove up and caught our first sight of the house…or rather of the pounding surf in front of the house…our breath was taken away. The sun was shining; the air was unseasonably warm for the first week of October and we were WOW’d. Three bedrooms are ocean front but the fourth bedroom is ocean view with a great view from the windows so no one will be unhappy with their accommodations. The master suite however is the crème de la crème with a gas fireplace, HUGE glass shower, and HUGE deep tub. The kitchen is equipped with cutlery, dishes and glasses for 10. The huge pantry is stocked with staples, spices and we found little extras in the fridge like condiments. All appliances are new and high end. The house is well equipped. We used the kites provided, did two of the many jigsaw puzzles, played cards, had a cozy fire on the one foggy day, walked for hours on the Cove when the tide was out and after a full day of exploring nearby Newport, Depoe Bay and Waldport, were happy to come ‘home’ and have dinner in. We ate at ‘Georgies’ in Newport and ‘Tidal Raves’ in Depoe Bay. Both were excellent. For something very different and unique, try out ‘Jamie’s Dockside Diner (#1 in Waldport). There is a Safeway’s and Walmart in Newport, and Ray’s in Waldport for all your supplies. Activities close by: walking for miles on the beach at Seal Rock State Park; searched, and found, agates in Ona Park; visited the Yaquina Lighthouse; shopped in Nye Beach. Don’t miss the glass blowers at ‘Glass Blowing Gallery’. Our reunion was another success full of fun, lots of laughs, great food and friendship. Many wonderful memories were formed and much of the credit goes to the warm homey atmosphere created by the luxury surroundings of the Sanctuary. Special thanks to Renee the housekeeper for leaving everything so neat right down to the lovely fresh floral arrangements and chocolate kisses on the pillows. Thank you Dennis!"

Central Coast Travel Tips

Discover Oregon’s Coast

Oregon’s coast is regarded as three areas, each with its own distinct character and features. The North Coast extends from the Columbia River to Neskowin, the Central Coast is from Lincoln City to Florence, and the South Coast covers Reedsport to the California border. It covers the counties of Clatsop, Tillamook, Lincoln, western Lane, western Douglas, Coos and Curry. It is well served by US Route 101 which runs the length of the coastline and provides breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. The drive down this road alone is worth the trip. Other major roads such as US-20, US-30, US-26 also provide access, as do State Routes 18 and 22. Visitors here can choose from delightful Oregon Coast cottages to make their home base for a fantastic vacation.

Three Distinct Regions, One Perfect Place

The North Coast features long stretches of unbroken beach and large bays enclosed by sandbars. Astoria is the main city. Along this delightful coast are also the cities of Seaside and Tillamook.

From Lincoln City to Florence, the Central Coast has fewer beaches and more cliffs and bays. Charming small cities such as Depoe Bay, Newport, Waldport and Yachats are scattered along its coast.

The mountainous South Coast is distinct because of its cliffs and miles of beaches. Here, visitors will find small cities such as North Bend, Coos Bay, with oceanfront rentals, as well as vacation homes in Bandon and Brookings. The area is known for its forests of myrtle, redwood, Douglas Firs and northern pine.

Million of Years Spent Creating the Perfect Vacation Spot

Wherever visitors to Oregon Coast vacation rentals choose as their base, there will be plenty to occupy both days and nights. There are a variety of museums along the coast, such as Tillamook Navel Air Museum and Flavel House. Also worth a visit is Yaquina Lights, the lighthouse at the mouth of the Yaquina River. One of the most impressive sights to see is the Sea Lion Cave. It is the largest sea cave in the world, 25 million years in the making. It is now the height of a 13-story building and it is as long as a football field. If that isn’t spectacular enough, visitors can also watch the sea lions go about their daily lives. Whales are also spotted here. If visitors don’t manage to spot a whale, they are charter boats along the coast offering whale watching and sport fishing. Visitors will find the opportunity to walk under the waves through a 200-foot tunnel, making for a once-in-a-lifetime trip. Come face to face with sharks, rays and thousands of species at the Oregon Coast Aquarium. To learn more about the area, visit the History Center here. To see animals from across the world, take a trip to the Wildlife Safari where animals from Africa, Asia, South America and North America roam freely over 600 acres.

The Hardest Part is Leaving Your Oregon Coast Lodging Behind

One of the most important decisions that vacationers face is where to stay. Picking the perfect Oregon Coast lodging could not be easier. Whether it is a spacious home right on the beach or a condo in one of Oregon’s coastal towns, there is the perfect property just waiting for you. Visitors choosing these Oregon Coast vacation rentals will find properties that are not just well equipped but full of extras that make a vacation home special. Visitors will find properties on the beach, with hot tubs, large screen televisions, internet access, and a variety of choices that welcome pets.

Oregon coast vacations offer many things to do. Biking along the coast is very popular, as is hiking, beachcombing, golf and water sports. Oregon’s beaches are too cold and rough for swimming, but the area’s lakes and rivers also provide water sports opportunities.

Bandon vacation homes are near the well known Bandon Dunes Golf Resort.
