Get away from it all or stay connected to it all in this wonderful condo. This condo is great for a romantic getaway or a fun-filled family vacation. Enjoy the views of the waves washing up on the beach or the white water washing over the off shore rocks. Watch otters, whales, seagulls, pelicans, fishing boats, and the occasional surfers.

This is a great home base for all that the Southern Oregon Coast has to offer. You can jump right on to the Coast hiking trail from the condo for hours of hiking exploration. Rent kayaks for a river or ocean trip.

Charter a boat for a great fishing experience with a local guide, or try your hand for Surf Perch right from the beach. There are days worth of hiking and beach trails all within 20 min from the home.

When you are ready to come in from the great outdoors this condo greets you with superior amenities. Stay connected with high speed Wi-Fi (Bring your own laptop). Enjoy your favorite TV shows, sports teams, and movies on the high definition flat screen TV located in the living room. Light a toasty fire and grab a good book or a loved one and snuggle up for a quiet evening.

There is a great jetted tub to soak road or trail weary bones. Books, puzzles, and the great views are all available for your pleasure. Of course this home is stocked with all the necessities of a functioning home. Linens, beach towels, cook ware etc. are all ready for your use.

About Holly Hatch

Hello! We are Lonnie and Lori. We love the ocean and have always dreamed about having a place to get-away and relax. We are really excited to share our home with you and hope that your stay will be very memorable.

Holly Hatch purchased this condo in 2008

What makes this condo unique

The view is our favorite part of our home. We can sit for hours and watch the water and there is always something changing. Of course we are always on the look out for whales, but watching the surfers at the end of the beach and even the fisherman has become quite entertaining. At night we crack open the sliding door and listen to the soothing sound of the ocean. During crabbing season there are a lot of boats out at night that have big lights and you can see the crew working. Vacations are meant to be relaxing and replenishing so we tried to capture the sprit of that in our home and it feels great to us. We furnished it with comfortable but modern furnishings, left clutter to a minimum, and let the view take center stage. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do.

The perfect spot to enjoy all the beauty of the coast! The view from the condo is truly unbelievable, and the walk up/down to the beach was one of our most favorite hikes of the trip (hard to beat the wildflowers, views, and sunsets)! The condo was very easy and comfortable, and it had everything our family needed to enjoy a wonderful weekend!

Amazing, amazing, amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at the Whale Watcher. The condo itself is spacious and extremely well stocked. Plenty of kitchenware and toiletries, as well as extra fuzzy blankets perfect for cuddling up on the patio and enjoying the view. While the place could use an updating, we didn't even care because of THE VIEW. The grounds of the complex were just beautiful. The trails leading down to the beach were clear enough, but fairly steep. Be prepared and carry a walking stick! My teenagers even had trouble on the last part of the trail leading to the beach, as it is steep and the rocks can be unstable. The climb back up is tiring, but you will find a bench or two to rest on and take in the view along the way. One note about the complex, this unit is on the 3rd floor and there is no elevator (that we could find) so be prepared to carry everything up stairs. Not a big deal, but just fyi. We traveled a few minutes North by car and explored the Samuel Boardman Park and many trails it offers, and I highly recommend for anyone visiting the area. So much natural beauty here! Restaurants in town were good, but beware that most places close early. There is a great supermarket in town (Fred Myer) that you will find everything you need for your stay. Overall, this was one of the best vacations we have ever had. We had an incredible time here and can't wait to return!

What an amazing, spacious, clean, fantastic location on southern oregon coast!

  • 5 of 5

This condo exceeded our expectations and we will most definitely come back as often as possible. It is in a great place to explore Harris Beach State Park and Samuel Boardman State Park (both just a couple minutes away). But, even if you don't want to venture out, the most amazing beach with awesome tide pooling is located just below the condos on a trail. The trail is steep for anyone with mobility problems, so keep that in mind. About the condo...beautiful views of the beach and sea stacks from a nice picture window and from the balcony door. We used the telescope provided to see saturn during the strawberry moon. The whalewatcher has a stunning view! Bedrooms are large and comfortable, full dining table and kitchen allowed us to eat meals in and spend less money eating out. My boys were excited to see some popular movies were available in the bookshelf and they watched a movie each evening. Dishes, towels, blankets, everything you need is provided. This place is a gem and highly recommend staying here!

It was everything I expected. The view was amazing. It was clean and had plenty of amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t have been more happy. We highly recommend it. The view, the beach, and the condo was awesome. Everything for our stay was there including extra towels, plenty of cookware, seasonings, and bedding. The locals were friendly. The beach was a short distance and the kids loved it. We would love to come back if we didn’t live so far away!
