Wild Coast Lookout, perched on the shoulder of a ancient sea stack, offers privacy and a dramatic view of the Oregon coast. Hawks and owls are frequently sighted in the trees on the property, and at night, as you soak in the hot tub, you will be treated to the sound of ocean waves and a chorus of frogs in the estuary below. The Lookout is located within just a few minute's walk of Turtle Rock beach, and a short drive to some of the most spectacular beachcombing shores of the Pacific Northwest.
Wild Coast Lookout offers a very private setting with ocean and mountain views. Perched on the shoulder of an ancient volcanic sea stack, about 60-feet above sea level and with a steep drop-off on three sides of the property, it feels like you are on your own little island. At the same time, it is a very convenient 5-minute drive to Gold Beach for dining and other services you might need.
Wild Coast Lookout is located on a slope above Turtle Rock Beach, just a couple miles south of downtown Gold Beach. The few homes on the hill are mostly far apart and separated by forest. The nearest neighbor is a small cottage next door, but they cannot see the Lookout's hot tub, sun deck or lawn. To the west is a dramatic view of the coast. Several species of wildlife are frequently sighted on the property, including deer, racoons, hawks, owls, quail and hummingbirds. On most nights you will be lulled to sleep by the sound of ocean waves and frogs singing in the estuary and pastures below.
Guests have exclusive access to all areas of the 1-acre property, including a large private hot tub with ocean view, outdoor shower, sun deck, lawn and terrased gardens. Inside, they have total access to all spaces with the exception of a storage closet where the hosts keep cleaning supplies.
The owners of Wild Coast Lookout live in Alaska most of the year, but your local hosts, Clare and Mitchell, live nearby, and they are available to provide any information or assistance you might need, day or night. Just call or text to contact them. They will get in touch with you shortly before your arrival to introduce themselves.
Most folks will really enjoy Wild Coast Lookout's secluded setting, but we do not recommend it for families with young children (age range of about 2-9 years) because of concerns that they might fall when climbing or descending the ladder-steps to the sleeping loft. Additionally, there are unfenced, steep, downhill slopes on three sides of the property.
