About Patrick

I work in design and moved to Portland from NYC 5 years ago.

Patrick purchased this house in 2010

Why Patrick chose Tillamook

I love the ocean, especially this part of the OR coast. It is between Cape Lookout and Cape Meares, has amazing scenery and seems to have better weather than much of the coast - and Portland for that matter. There are numerous weekends when all of Western Oregon is supposed to be rainy when the sun is shining at this home.

What makes this house unique

Rain or shine, I love staring at the ocean and this house amazing views from the deck and the living area. We've seen whales while eating dinner at the kitchen table. Bald eagle sightings are also fairly common.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Patrick and Kate's place is amazing! So quiet and relaxing, I watched the waves and birds migrating for hours. I loved waking up in the morning and walking along what, with only a few parking spots, is almost a private beach. And we're excited to go back!

Great location; private, but close to Oceanside and other nearby towns

  • 5 of 5

Great spot! The location is just north of Oceanside on a quiet dead-end street with great views of the ocean from the living room, kitchen and front deck. Patrick was very responsive to the few questions we had before our stay. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to cook for 6 adults a couple of evenings.

Excellent vacation house

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best houses we've ever stayed on the Oregon coast: best view of the ocean from the balcony, plenty of space, convenient floor plan, walking distance to the beach.

Serene Retreat at Wild ocean

  • 5 of 5

This house is awesome- such a good value for the price. It's on a private road so it felt secluded, but it's just above a beach with the best agate hunting I've ever had. All the kitchen equipment I needed, wifi and PEACE. I would go back immediately.

Perfect Escape

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful place to make our escape. Comfortable and accommodating, isolated but not too far from others and perfectly located to be amazed, entertained and relaxed by the sights and sounds of the ocean and the Oceanside shore. While it is a much larger home than really needed for two, it provided an ideal setting for our getaway.We highly recommend discovering the Oregon coast with this seaside home as your base.
