Warm and Cozy Beach House with Fabulous View

Bedrooms 4
Space 1,300 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

If you're looking for a place to relax and gather your wits about you, this is it. You can go beachcombing and hiking and crabbing and clamming or you can do nothing at all, just sit and watch the beach or watch movies with a terrific sound system.

You can eat dinner at Roseanna's Cafe in town or Schooners just down the road and Michkos in Netarts for an great burger or you can cook gourmet meals in a kitchen that has everything you need, including spices. There are so many choices, but no matter what you decide to do, you will feel cozy and peaceful and welcome. There's nothing stuffy about the house, so prepare to feel at ease.

About Terri Warren

I'm a nurse practitioner and my husband is a retired fire chief. We're hoping that the people who want to stay here are looking for a home that belongs to a family and feels like a home, not a rental property or motel. So far, we've had incredibly good luck with people staying here; everyone has been respectful and treated this like their own home, we are so grateful. We hope if you chose to stay here, you'll feel pleased with your selection and renewed when you leave.

Terri Warren purchased this house in 1993

Why Terri Warren chose Northern Coast

We bought our home in Oceanside because it isn't a typical tourist town. There is one restaurant , and one coffee shop in our town , but a fabulous long beach. Within 2 miles, there are two other good places to eat and two small stores for supplies. Within 9 miles is a good sized town (Tillamook) and an amazing cheese factory. But we will never be even close to having the feel of a Seaside or a Cannon Beach. If you're looking for more goings on, you won't be too happy here. But if you're looking for some time to reconnect with your family or your partner, I think you'll be happy with your choice.

What makes this house unique

Lovely peace and quiet, great beach walking, amazing views from the deck, a completely equipped kitchen, and comfy beds. The tide pools at low tide are so interesting, and if you like crabbing and clamming, it's just two miles away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our week there was so fantastic with our dear friends. We all agreed that it was a time we'll all treasure forever. So glad that we took the time to do it, and not put it off. We're thinking it would also be perfect for our family. So we're keeping that possibility in the back of our minds. Thanks again for sharing your lovely cottage.

Fabulous Beach House! Relaxing & Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have rented many homes through VRBO. I'm happy to say this house was another 5 star on our list. I read every review and detail on the posting and all were true. Well stocked kitchen, comfortable, clean, and one of the most important details for me was the high quality linens/comforters. I always look for that. I want to sleep in a bed like I'm used to at home. No disappointments at all! Terri was very helpful & communicated well. Even the reviews about the stairs were accurate. Did not have tiny children in our family but it could be a concern . They are steep. Baby gate is provided though & toddlers may need assistance. The view can't be beat. Gorgeous...:) . If you want a place where there are tons of activities and shops DON'T stay in Oceanside. That is also stated in the posting and it is EXACTLY why I chose it. Quiet neighbors & every time we went to the beach maybe saw 10-15 people at the very most. It was great!! Not far to go for activites though. It is on our list of "keepers". Thank you again Terri & Hal for sharing your lovely home.

Fun family vacation time!

  • 5 of 5

After reading all reviews this was the house we chose and we are glad we did. The house was super clean. Not so fancy that you couldn't relax, but still very cute with comfortable, clean furniture. All reviews said the beds are really comfortable and that's true. The view from the house is breathtaking. Thank you for sharing your home. It was very thoughtful of you to call the first night to make sure everything was to our liking. The only negative was that we couldn't stay forever! Oceanside is one of the prettiest beaches we've ever visited.

Owner's Response: It makes me so happy that you enjoyed our home! We love having people at our house when we cannot be there - it would be a shame to have it sit empty when others can enjoy time with family and friends there. The housekeepers said you left everything in great condition, too. Thank you.

Would we do it again-yes. Would we recommend it to friends-yes. 2 "old" couples, 1 young couple, 2 sons. With 4 good cooks the kitchen is very well equipped. We are looking to replace our dishwasher and yours was extremely quiet! Great sunsets! 2 minute walk to the beach, piece of cake. On the must do list--beach fire at night!!!! We had a great dinner at Roseanna's Cafe, a group of 8 is hard to take care of and they did a great job. Travel tip, the refer does not have an icemaker, buy ice for the first night's happy hour. Yes the beds are comfortable! We "old folks" slept downstairs, the "ladder" oops ...stairs, were no problem!! We did try to use the Weber BBQ Sunday night....could not get the temp above 275. I took it apart and cleaned everything and the burner tubes, works great. All and all we enjoyed our stay, and the "town" of Oceanside is a great place to enjoy a peaceful vacation!

Owner's Response: Hey Richard, so glad you guys had a great time at the beach house. That darn BBQ - we've had the same problem and then it works fine - no idea what's up with that. Maybe time for a new one? But thanks so much for cleaning it all out - maybe now it will always work! Please come see us again sometime - we would love that. Best Terri and Hal

Wonderful Beach Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This place was so wonderful, we visited with our adult children and it felt like we were hanging out in our own family home

The layout works wonderfully for a family travelling together as there are 2 great bedrooms and a bathroom on each floor. The kitchen is lovely and the deck is large with a lot of chairs and tables for a group. We all loved the relaxed family atmosphere so much. Oh,and all four of the beds are fantastic, which is often not the case. We will certainly be returning again and again. Thanks for letting us enjoy this lovely spot, Terri

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you had a good time! We love the up and down aspects of the house so one group can be doing one kind of thing upstairs and another group something different downstairs. We would love to have you come back again, Paula and this time, I promise to give you the key code much sooner! You were a great sport about my error, thanks for your graciousness. Terri

We want to do it again.

  • 5 of 5

We expected that we would be satisfied but it was perfect for us. The couple who owns it are very nice. Maybe ask for instructions for the fancy new style coffee maker, after the first time it was easy. It took my sister quite a while to figure it out. The view is as good as the photos and the place is as easy to walk to the beach as hoped. We will park at our relative's nearby lot if we bring more cars as the town has clear restrictions about how and where cars are parked, I think two cars were allowed. All the beds seemed good, none were smaller than expected. The deck is great, nothing was less than expected.

Owner's Response: Hi Bill, so glad you had a good time at the beach house. You are not the first person who has struggled with that coffee maker, let me just say. Maybe it's time for a new one! Sometimes, when you lived with something for a long time, it's good to get someone elses perspective. We're so glad you reserved again for next year, we look forward to having you back! Terri

Wonderful spot.

  • 5 of 5

Such a nice house and so convenient to anything in Oceanside. We were meeting with a larger family group in the community hall so only had a block walk to it. Beach...another half block. Restaurants the same distance as the beach if you want them. We did not eat out. Views from the deck/front room windows...sublime. In general...we loved it.

You can do a 5 mile hike with ocean views to Cape Lookout. WARNING: this hike is not for young children or the inexperienced hiker. Also, the Tillamook Cheese Factory is close by and children love that - great ice cream and so much fun to see how cheese is made. There is an old blimp museum in Tillamook that's interesting and often things going on at the fairgrounds. The Lincoln City casino is about an hour away as are factory outlet stores, but you can avoid those things easily if you wish. In the summer, Tillamook hosts a great farmers market on Saturday and the Tillamook County Fair is not to be missed. The Cape Mears lighthouse is fun to visit near the house. Also, we love the Schooner restaurant and bar in Netarts. There are terrific antique stores in Wheeler, just about 25 miles north of Tillamook. Garibaldi, about 10 miles north of Tillamook, features wonderful seafood you can purchase right at the dock where the boats come in and also our favorite lunch place for fish and chips right at the dock.
