"This was one of the best beach houses we have stayed at! Very clean! The best view we have ever had of the ocean. The double kitchen was very nice. Two family's could go together and have their space. Thanks grandma for renting the wonderful beach house!"Guest: J Rod Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 5, 2014View listing
"This was the perfect house for my husbands 40th birthday fishing trip! We (3 couples, Dad, Dad-n-law, and Brother) had all the room we needed at The Happy Clam. The set-up, with the addition of the downstairs apartment, was perfect for us, giving everyone their space and privacy when needed, but still plenty of room to all hang out comfortably in the open kitchen/dining/great room. With the perfectly appointed and well-stocked kitchen and large dining table, we were able to stay in one night to enjoy our catch. And the nearby bayfront gave us plenty of options for dinner on the other night. The brewery, in walking distance, made for a fun pre-meal happy hour, and the jetty walk right out the door was great for enjoying the fresh ocean air. The owners were wonderful, very helpful and attentive when needed, even returning a call from half way around the world when we were locked out of the downstairs apartment! They happily answered my MANY questions during the planning phase, as there were quite a few because of trying to coordinate for a large group, some who'd never even met each other. (I was worried about everyone being comfortable with sleeping and bathroom situations, but in the end, there was nothing to worry about.) This was the absolute perfect rental house, and we truly hope to rent it again in the future! Clean, comfortable, well-stocked, easy to find, great location, ample parking, comfortable beds, nice views, big, plenty of seating, all bedrooms have their own bathroom, fun gameroom in the garage, helpful owners. Perfect rental house, that doesn't even feel like a rental!"Guest: Carrie Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: October 12, 2014View listing
"Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was more than happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had four families stay here for a corporate retreat weekend. We had a total of 7 adults and 7 kids and the house was roomy enough for all. The kitchen is a bit small for more than two people to be in but the dining area held us all which was a nice bonus. I was not sure if the road traffic and noise was going to be an issue but it was not and you could hear the ocean from the house. It has a great view out the top level and has very easy access to the Roads End park and beach. Manager responded on 10/9/2014: Brock, So happy to hear everyone enjoyed their time at Sundance. Hope to have you back for the next retreat."Guest: A guest from Bend, OR Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: September 23, 2014View listing
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.
