About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 4)

Winter Price Reduction -

Heart of the Hill Cottage is a high quality 2 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath Cottage, with panoramic views of the Oceanside beach and Three Arch Rocks, a National Game Preserve.

All New in 2010, the Cottage has beautiful reclaimed wood ceilings, granite counters, and glass tile back splashes throughout. There are 2 ocean facing decks, with stainless cable railing, and a 3rd deck, also with ocean view, off the kitchen entry.

The Cottage sits directly above the 2 car garage. Stairs lead from the garage up to the entry. On the main floor is the kitchen, dining, living, and 1/2 bath. A 32'' flatscreen TV with built in DVD, and WiFi are in the living area. The upstairs has 2 bedrooms, one with queen bed, one with 2 twin beds, and the full bath, with a heated tile floor, and a shower/tub.

There are fabulous views from both bedrooms and all living spaces. It was designed with a maximum of 4 people in mind, either 2 couples, or perhaps parents with 2 kids.

The master, front, bedroom has vaulted wood ceilings with full height windows. Awakening to this amazing view will make you smile, guaranteed. The 2nd bedroom, with the twin beds, also has a great, more southerly ocean view. The heated tile floor in the bathroom is a real treat, especially in the middle of the night, or before and after bathing. My wife told me I was going to love it...

The Cottage is not large, about 850 sq.ft. on the 2 floors, but it is very well designed, efficient, warm, and cozy. The enameled propane fireplace in the living area adds great physical, and aesthetic, warmth. It is an amazing little place.

The town of Oceanside, only 90 minutes from Portland, is also unique. Built like an amphitheater, this 250 resident village is off the beaten path, and has fabulous beaches, vistas, and a tranquil natural setting. Two restaurants and one coffee shop are the only commercial establishments. Quiet, peaceful, beautiful.

We're about 10 miles west of Tillamook, the cheese town located on a large Bay, and surrounded by great forests, a mecca for fishermen, boaters, and hikers, with activities nearby for all interests.

If you're looking for luxury in a comfortable setting with unparalleled views, our Heart of the Hill Cottage will fit your desires.

The Views are Exquisite and the Home Beautifully Constructed and Maintained

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely cottage with superb views of the ocean from all of the forward-facing windows. The home is well built, the interior is attractive, and it is very clean. It has a large garage for one car (tight for 2). We would definitely stay here again.

Our only 2 suggestions would be (1) to replace the BBQ because wheels are rusted off -- making it hard to move away from the wall of house as requested by owners. (2) the double bed does not the world's most comfortable mattress. But really, these are minor complaints.

We could hardly believe our eyes. The views from this cottage are spectacular. We loved having two decks. After enjoying sunsets, we would head upstairs to see the stars. The cottage is well appointed and very clean. The sounds of the waves lulled us to sleep. If you want to sleep in though, bring an eye mask. I love that we could just walk down the hill to the beach and discover all kinds of cool stuff, like a tunnel through a mountain that takes you to another more secluded beach speckled with agate stones. Oceanside is truly a gem.

Three of us enjoyed the two bedroom house up on the cliff. Everything was new and clean and well thought out.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Ron does a great job with his property! He was very welcoming upon arrival. The home is warm and inviting. We were traveling down the coast and this was our favorite place on the coast and our favorite stay of the whole trip.The kitchen is fully stocked, the beds are comfortable, and the home is clean. The views are amazing! The property is a short 8 min drive to Cape Meares Lighthouse. We look forward to returning! Thank you Ron for opening your home to us.
