"So we stayed again! This house is our families second home in Charleston. It accommodates our family of children and grandchildren perfectly. Very child friendly and homey. Hope to return again."Guest: Katherine C. Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: September 18, 2014View listing
"I just loved our stay here. The cabin was beautiful and quaint. The beach gorgeous and the hot tub was a definite treat. I was already in love with this little slice of heaven and then I got into that amazingly comfortable bed...BONUS! It is the only place I will stay when I return to the coast. I would also like to thank Laurie for being so wonderful and helpful with me as I have never rented a privately owned cabin before."Guest: Daniel K.

"Our family - three generations, 11 people from 9 to 62 - just returned from an exquisite week in Gold Beach at the Harrison Ridge Estate. We're VRBO veterans, and have had mostly good experiences with vacation rentals; this one is on top of the list of incredibe homes for family memories. There is no overstatement in the descriptions of this property: the grounds and the house are everything they were presented to be, and more. The owner was personally engaged in all of the booking and arrangement details, and continued to be helpful and hospitable up to and through the week we spent at the home. Her local representative was very gracious and available to us as we arrived and through the course of our stay: accessible without hovering. Though we took advantage of everything that Gold Beach and the Oregon Coast has to offer, no one wanted to leave the house! There was space for everyone to have breathing room, but the gathering spots in/around the Great Room were magnetic points of contact that gave us what we were looking for! We held the Family Council the night before we left... and there was unanimous consensus that we would love coming back to Harrison Ridge Estate! Kudos to Randi and Marna for their Five-Star handling of this incredible property!"Guest: Bob Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 13, 2014View listing
"Just returned from a four night stay. There were seven of us and could have been more. House is just as advertised with plenty of beds and room for all. It was even better than the listing pictures. Fully equipped kitchen with everything you could possibly want. Living area is on second floor with great view of the ocean. Everything was clean and ready for us when we arrived. Owner is very easy to work with and answered all my questions. A great place to stay in Bandon while visiting all that there is to see or just relaxing. Walking distance to Old Town or a couple minute drive if your lazy like we were. I would highly recommend Grandmas Beach House if you are looking for a nice place in Bandon."Guest: Mike Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 19, 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.
