Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

The home was exactly what the photos added bonus was being surrounded by all the art that was created by Chris, Julie and their son. It was private, yet you could walk to town in 5 minutes. I highly recommend this home.

What a view!!!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this rental because of the view and by far we were thrilled with our choose. Chris and Julie (the owners) have a beautiful home. From the easy to find location, to the stunning art displayed throughout the house, oh and have I mentioned the VIEW!! The master bed was very comfortable and we loved the walk in shower. You will not be disappointed if you stay here.

rent it!

  • 4 of 5

Outstanding home. Very comfy beds. Great view. Fun location for surfing. Road noise can be a small problem if you sleep with windows open; not horrible but noticeable. Good value. Outstanding art work and atmosphere.

Battle Rock Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation rental! It was a beautiful home with great views and loved the location with lots of privacy. We would recommend this property to anyone who wants to stay in a comfortable home with a lot of charm and beautiful art work. This house is close to beaches, great hiking and our favorite place was the Elk River just a few miles away.

Thank you Julie and Chris!

Banana Belt!!! The weather is great the water is fine!!!

  • 5 of 5

Your home is magnificent. The location is beautiful. The view to the beach could not be improved.

The town of Port Orford impressed us in many ways. The beach, the people, the resident whales.

There are many things to do in addition to the beach. We rode our bikes, walked the grounds around the lifeguard museum, and visited the nearby Blanco Lighthouse and Hough House grounds. This included a stop to get fresh honey at Lee's Bees.

Many thanks for sharing your wonderful home.

Tranquility by the sea

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful way to relax and unwind from the stressors of everyday life. The Battle Rock House has absolutely everything we could have asked for. From the time we entered the driveway, we knew we were in for something special. The home, which sits in the woods above the port, is absolutely beautifully furnished and overlooks the port and the ocean beyond. A glass of wine and dinner on the deck, and we were set. Our hosts, Chris and Julie, were very accessible,and even had fresh flowers to greet us upon our arrival. Even though we felt like we were out in the country, we were only about one minute from town with its quaint shops, great little restaurants (we liked Griff's at the dock the best) and of course the beach. We look forward to many more visits to Port Orford and the Battle Rock house. Please! Don;t change a thing!
