This ocean-view, 2-level townhouse sits on Coquille Point, one of the most visited ocean/wildlife viewpoints on the southern Oregon Coast. A short path leads to a park that wraps around the point and overlooks the ocean beach, shoreline coves and seastacks that comprise the Oregon Islands National Wildlife refuge. Well-maintained stairs lead down to the Pacific Ocean with miles of beach walking, tidepool exploration, agate hunting, kite flying, and whale watching in season. The ocean and seastacks crown the view from your window and seabirds are numerous, including cormorants, gulls, rare tufted puffins, common murres and pigeon guillemots. Surf watching is popular during storms.
The open-floor plan of the upstairs living area includes a full kitchen, dining area, living room with gas fireplace and pull-out queen sofa which leads out to a viewing deck. Adjacent to the living area, the fully-furnished kitchen features a skylight, tile countertops and floors, and a complete suite of appliances including a gas range, refrigerator with ice maker, microwave, dishwasher, and disposal.
Also on the upper level is a King-bed-furnished bedroom (beds can be converted to XL Twins) and a continental bath with shower/tub. The ground-floor master King bedroom (or XL twins) has its own patio for a quiet getaway. The bedroom's accompanying walk-though wardrobe and double sinks with shower/tub complete the master suite. Also on the first floor is the separate laundry room and access to the attached two-car garage.
Enjoy a picnic in the common garden area or on the patio outside the master bedroom, the upper deck or lower patio off the main living area. Leisurely gaze at our new Dry Creek Contemplation Garden from the upper deck or lower patio or enjoy the panorama of garden, park and ocean horizon from one of our garden benches. Take a stroll on the maintained private and public paths to the wildlife viewing area or go down the wide stairs to the beach.
The shingle-style architecture blends naturally with the setting, looking just the way you may have imagined a coastal ocean-view home should. Fully furnished and well appointed, the townhouse also subscribes to satellite DirecTV. There are 3 TVs (one HD), VCRs, DVD player and broadband internet. It's the vacation home solution for family and friends.
The sandy beach will challenge any child's imagination in the construction of a sand castle. Every member of the family can enjoy the fun of beach exploration or kite flying. Crabbing and fishing are nearby. Our guests acclaim the townhouse as very clean, well-maintained and very comfortable with all of the features of home and more. Most all wish to return soon. There is no traffic noise at night to interrupt your sleep, just ocean waves breaking on the beach plus a foghorn during stormy nights.
World-class Bandon Dunes Golf Course is 10 minutes away. Crabbing from the old-town docks, fishing in the rivers, kayaking and canoeing on the rivers and lakes, and whale watching are popular seasonal pastimes. Storm watching opportunities abound in winter as the high surf frequently splashes over the offshore seastacks. Old Town Bandon offers a variety of shops, a modern public crabbing pier and boat launch, and plenty of dining options. Ocean fishing charters are available as well as sea kayak trips in Charleston Harbor to the north, South Slough Estuary, and various lakes and rivers in the area. Nearby Cape Arago is home to seal and sea lion populations at Simpson Reef, as well as Shore Acres Gardens which are lovely in the spring and decorated and lit for the winter holidays. Horseback riding is popular on the beach at sunset. Some of the best windsurfing on the Oregon coast is just a short drive to Floras Lake. Other hiking opportunities abound on numerous trails in the area.
