Recent Southern Coast reviews
"We had an absolutely wonderful stay at 'The Loft'. The owners are so welcoming (dog included :) ) and were very helpful in providing great advice on restaurants, shops, and other great places for 'site-seeing'. The loft is very comfortable and relaxing with all the amenities we needed for a great trip! We would stay there again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend it!"Guest: The Greens Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 24, 2014View listing
"I stayed at the home with my three children ages 12, 14, 18. This beach home has an incredible location just steps away from the Pacific Ocean on the private boardwalk. The beach is almost a private beach as well. We spent an entire day at the beach and saw maybe 10 people! The home has been updated recently by the owner that are not shown in the pictures--all new kitchen appliances including two refrigerators and a new big screen tv in the living room. The hot tub is very private and a perfect spot for gazing at the starts at night. The home is about a 10 minute drive north of the town of Gold Beach. Gold Beach is not nearly as crowded or touristy as more northern towns on the Oregon Coast. While we were there we took a jet boat ride up the Rogue River and visited the Redwoods in Northern California. I would highly recommend both."Guest: Dave Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 31, 2014View listing
"My husband and I and our three kids stayed here for 10 days. The home has a cottage feel, I thought, with light coming in from all the windows and views of the ocean everywhere. It was sometimes hard to leave on day trips as the view and the hot tub were so enticing to sit and read and soak and read and wander around and look at the view... Everything was provided to cook great meals and again it was hard to go to a restaurant because the home was so comfortable and the view was amazing. BBQ and read and look at the ocean and have a glass of wine and a little hot tub and watch the ocean. Very distracting! We did enjoy the Redwoods and swam in The Smith River several times (which is cold but CRYSTAL clear with lots of local swimming holes). Coffee shops abound and we HIGHLY recommend Mattie's for breakfast. Of course there were walks on the beach and tide pools and a few sea lions on the beach right beneath the house. My kids and husband also rented boogie boards in town and LOVED boogie boarding. I found a local spa with my older daughter:) If you want to get away from it all this is the place! Great owners, very helpful and responsive."Guest: Cindy W. Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 24, 2014View listing

Southern Coast Travel Tips
Set out to the Southern Oregon Coast on Your Next Vacation
If you are looking for the home of world-class fishing and outdoor activities, Oregon’s Southern Coast is it! There are so many beautiful sights to see and adventures to be had in the region that you will want to extend your trip for a few more days each time! From whitewater rafting, skiing and biking to hiking and wine tasting, the South Oregon Coast has it all. And, to top it off, it is also the location of North America’s deepest lake, Crater Lake. No matter when you book your South Oregon Coast vacation rentals, you get the best of everything, from the high desert to majestic mountains to lush valleys.
Southern Coast Weather Trends
When booking your South Oregon Coast cottages, remember that the weather in the region can be variable. You might see snow during the months of January and February but the further south you travel, the less likely you will be to even hit freezing temperatures. There is a great contrast between the rocky mountain ledges dropping into the ocean and the sand dunes that span more than 350 miles along the coast. The southern cities in the region are warm and sunny throughout most of the year; however, it will rain. The region has a fertile ecosystem that is bordered by a temperate rainforest.
Car Travel Along the Southern Coast
Most people traveling in and out of Oregon’s South Coast do so by car. There are plenty of good roads connecting U.S. Highway 101, which is the coast’s major highway, with Highway 5 and cities such as Eugene and Portland. However, driving can definitely take some time. Some of the southern towns can only be accessed via northern and southern routes because they are separated by the Oregon Coast Range. It is advisable to have a road atlas or even a GPS with you for your drive.
Take a Scenic Drive
The Southern Coast is really one of the most beautiful places in the Pacific Northwest. A collection of scenic roadways, highways, and byways await your arrival and you should definitely take advantage of them. The Redwood Highway to Grants Pass will take you to the legendary Umpqua and Rogue Rivers where you can spend the day rafting, boating, fishing, and splashing about. If you would like a second-to-none view of the mountain lakes, the Klamath Basin, and Oregon’s Outback, your best bet is to take the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway.
The Towns of the Southern Coast
The coastal towns have a pace all their own. How you want to spend your vacation will determine what type of South Oregon Coast lodging you decide to book. Festivals, restaurants, outdoor activities, and attractions can be found in each town and are directly influenced by the ecological composition of the region. For example, you cannot go to Gold Beach without taking a river ride. If you want to see some whales, Port Orford lodging is the place for you. For a laid-back and relaxed ambience, Bandon-by-the-Sea is best. Your vacation should consist of a few days spent in several of the towns in order to get the true Southern Coast experience.
Fill the Days with Outdoor Adventures
Spending time along Oregon’s Southern Coast is to have an unspoiled coastal experience. Your days can be filled with windsurfing, sailing, fishing, hiking, and so much more. Feel free to explore some of the most spectacular and pristine beaches in the Pacific Northwest. Many people travel to the South Coast to fish the great lakes, rivers, and even the ocean while others come to simply take in the views. One thing not to miss is Oregon Caves National Monument which is smaller than you may think at only 480 acres. Above ground you will see great fir trees and wildlife while below ground you will see a great marble cave.
All the Adventures are not Outside
Though the diversity of the Southern Coast region is incomparable to anything else, there is plenty of fun to be had indoors as well. There are three casinos in the region that allow for plenty of gambling fun. If you prefer to taste your adventure, the culinary experience of Oregon’s South Coast is amazing; it is surprising, varied, and delicious. And do not forget the Rogue and Applegate Valley Wineries. No matter what you prefer as an adventure, Oregon’s South Coast definitely has it all.
