Recent Oceanside property reviews
"We stayed here with our family of 4 and two other families of 3 and 5 for a total of 12. The location is fine. The view isn't great since there is a taller building between the house and the ocean, but you can see the water from a few spots. But its only about a 5 minute walk to the public beach area. The house wifi is great, and there is cable tv so a couple of times our kids watched tv. There were a couple of minor issues that we called the owner about (her direct cell) and she was very professional about it and we had no problems. The upstairs is very nice, and there is a nice kitchen/dining area and living room to hang out in. The upstairs bedroom has a really neat loft area in it. The deck is large, and we used the grill a couple of times and it was great. Some of the furniture is a little worn, and some of the mattresses aren't the best (especially the downstairs hide-a-bed). The downstairs smells a little mildew-ish but I think this is probably a common problem with beach houses. The whole house is very child friendly with lots of games, books, a pack-and-play crib, an infant swing, etc. Also because the house isn't super fancy we didn't have to worry too much about our kids breaking fragile antiques or anything like that. The beach was fantastic, especially at low tide when we checked out the tide pools and went around the large rocky outcropping. We played frisbee, chased and jumped the waves, dug in the sand, etc. The weather was hit and miss with short rain squalls followed by bursts of sunshine, but we didn't mind and had a great time. We also enjoyed day trips to the Tillamook Cheese Factory and the Cape Meares lighthouse. Overall this isn't a super fancy property, but it isn't priced that way. If you want a good value in beautiful Oceanside for a large group that doesn't care about fancy, this is a good choice. We don't go to the OR coast for the architecture."Guest: Alaska Pete Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 23, 2014View listing
"Our family has been staying at Bernie's Castle for over 10 years and we absolutely love everything about it. Not only does it have the best view of the Ocean around but the units are charming, comfortable, clean and situated within a 3 minute walk to the beach. One of our kids' favorite things to do on a rainy day is to cozy up on the huge window seat overlooking the ocean and read books or play games. Oceanside is the quintessential Oregon beach town with it's laid back attitude, lovely restaurants and friendly people. I would highly recommend a stay at Bernie's Castle!"Guest: Jenn Date of Stay: October 2010 Review Submitted: January 24, 2011View listing
"My family of 6 adults spent three enjoyable nights here. The multilevel layout makes this an excellent house for several couples to share: plenty of room to enjoy each other's company on the main level with more private spaces upstairs and downstairs. The house had everything we needed (even a rolling pin!) so we felt right at home."Guest: AJ Date of Stay: December 2013 Review Submitted: December 24, 2013View listing
"This coastal gem is a warm and comforting embrace. The all-wood interior and artfully-simple decor had me sighing. What a sharp use of space! Great views of the ocean, cozy blankets, and a kitchen with wares gives one all they might need to slow down and let go. The owners, Bill and Carol, provided detailed communication and the space was described accurately. Everything about my stay was smooth and easy. A favorite of mine, I let my closest friends know about this rare find."Guest: H Date of Stay: September 2012 Review Submitted: February 9, 2013View listing
Oceanside Travel Tips
Take a Scenic Drive to Oceanside Vacation Rentals
Oceanside is a small residential community located on Oregon’s scenic northwest coast. The nearest major town is Tillamook which is approximately 11 miles away. The nearest major city is Portland, the capital of Oregon, which is approximately 84 miles away further inland. Oceanside is a popular summer vacation destination for many of Portland’s city residents. For travelers from further afield, Portland Airport will be your entry point to the region. There are regularly scheduled domestic and international flights from North America that arrive and depart daily on most major commercial airlines. On arrival, it’s recommended to hire a car. The drive along the Oregon coastline is one of the most beautiful drives in the U.S. Once at your vacation home, it’s tempting to hole up and enjoy the beaches but a sunset drive along the coastal highway is something to be experienced.
Lazy Days at Oceanside Lodging
Oceanside is a place you come to in order to relax, enjoy the beautiful scenery, and simply take some time out from your busy life. It is a relatively sleepy town with several great restaurants and a spectacular beach. What more could you want from a vacation destination? Enjoy a lazy stroll along the beach, stop in at the local coffee shop and pick up some freshly baked pastries, and enjoy reading your morning newspaper as you sip your coffee. If the weather is clear, spend the day sunbathing on the beach and people-watching from behind the pages of your book. If you’d like to do something a little more active, travel a mile down the beach to Netarts Bay. There, you can hire a boat and go crabbing or clamming. There are also natural caves that are great for exploring.
If you have you camera with you, head out to Cape Meares Lighthouse for some great photos. The Three Arch Rocks National Wildlife Refuge is a haven for seals, sea lions and a wide variety of marine birds. You can take a boat excursion out there to get a closer view of the wildlife. The reserve in total is made up of 17 acres of rock islands, set aside for the preservation of marine life. Other popular pastimes along the coast are windsurfing, beachcombing and swimming in the many tidal pools.
Home Comforts and Great Views at Oceanside Cottages
Most vacation homes in Oceanside boast fantastic views out over the ocean. Some are designed in such a way that you can see the ocean waves from the kitchen as you are preparing meals. Many of the homes are characterized by large ocean-facing decks where you can enjoy open-air dining when the weather is good. Choose from cozy beach cottages for two, perfect for a romantic getaway, or a large vacation home that is spacious enough for an extended family. Comfortable living and dining areas make you feel right at home. Many have television sets, DVD players and entertainment centers so if the weather is miserable, you can still keep the kids entertained.
