Recent Southern Coast reviews
"If you're wanting an unobstructed view of the wide open Pacific Ocean and it's beaches, rock formations , waves and sea life, then this is the place for you. We spent a whole week at this Rainbow Rock Condo and had a great time. There are so many hiking trails we couldn't fit them all in and it's so close to the Redwoods we were able to go more than once. Also the weather was real nice, that never hurts! The condo is very clean and comfortable, with a nice balcony and dining room table right there in front of the ocean for bird viewing, and playing cards. If the southern coast is in our future again we would come back. Thanks Kirsten and Charles for letting us stay in your condo."Guest: Bob, Lynetta, Randy and Sandy Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: October 2, 2014View listing
"We spent a terrific week at this oceanfront home. All rooms very spacious and nicely appointed-comfie furniture and bed-well stocked kitchen-even freshly ground coffee in canister. Had my coffee either on the deck looking out on ocean and lighthouse or in LR corner that looked out on ocean and lighthouse-we could hear surf even with windows closed. Amazing views from all rooms and nice landscaping. Great birding and had a deer in neighbors yard one morning. If this wasn't enough we had 3 beaches nearby in addition to the one beneath us, a formal garden to tour and a lookout where we saw sea lions, seals and whales spouting and I am talking about 1-2 miles from the house. I could go on and on but will save that for review when we come back in 2 yrs.!"Guest: Anonymous Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 15, 2014View listing
"Stayed here for 4 nights and what a charming visit! Joan decorated the place wonderfully with so much character and thoughtfulness. (Was so relaxing browsing through many of Joan's books and magazines) My husband and I cooked a lot and the kitchen was super well equipped. The view from the living room was spectacular-a bit of ocean and tall spruces framed the window. LOVED Port Orford as well-good if you want to truly escape."Guest: Gina L.

"Beautiful view! Comfortable beds, owner great to work with and close walk to a nice beach. Disappointed that only one side of the garage was usable,as well a deck off the bedroom. The jets in the bathtub wouldn't turn off one night and when it rained hard, water dripped at a pretty good rate down the front of the fireplace glass, soaking two dish towels over night. Those things didn't affect our stay. We enjoyed the home and surroundings. It just would have been nice to have been notified prior to coming, of the garage situation and I was really looking forward to the bathtub with jets=) Not a deal breaker though."Guest: MK Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: May 2, 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.
