About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Sea Gem Cottage is an oceanfront home six miles south of Newport, Oregon. Our home now has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a loft. The entire house has been completely remodeled with the additional bedroom and loft added as of February 2016.

There are bamboo floors throughout the house and travertine tiles in the bathroom. The home is decorated with modern furnishings. There are spectacular views of the beach and surf from every room of the house. The bedrooms have queen beds with storage drawers and wardrobes for your extended stay. The downstairs great room has seating for 6 at the dining table and a wall mounted television with media player.

Stairs from the great room lead up to the new loft area. Here you can find two twin beds on the garden side of the loft and a lounge area on the ocean side.

The house sits on a 40 foot tall bluff with a private path and stairs leading to the beach. The beach stretches for miles in either direction allowing for long walks on the beach where you rarely encounter another person.

About Winter Chung

Winter and Neil purchased this property in 2009 to be used as a getaway from their daily lives in Portland, Oregon. After completely remodeling the cottage, they began renting it so that others could also enjoy the beautiful Oregon Coast.

Winter Chung purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Winter Chung chose Central Coast

The Newport area is the most beautiful and scenic part of the Oregon Coast in our opinion. There is abundant wildlife as well as the conveniences of a nearby city. Whales and seals have been viewed from the cottage. Seagulls and pelicans fly by the windows and float in the wind. The privacy granted by having a house on the ocean cannot be matched by a hotel or condo.

What makes this cottage unique

The house is built in the 1960's, but has been completely remodeled with tasteful, modern decor, yet keeping some of the original charm. It is challenging to find modern properties on the Oregon Coast, and this cottage will not disappoint.

Fantastic Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay on the Oregon coast! The ocean views are just stunning, and the interior of the cottage is beautiful, cozy, and well stocked. We've stayed in numerous VRBOs over the years and this was one of our favorites. We thoroughly enjoyed walks on the beach as well as exploring Newport. Coming back to the cottage each day was a treat. We will definitely return to Sea Gem Cottage and I highly recommend!

obsessed with this adorable house

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Sea Gem. Our trip was May 20-24, 2017. We flew into Portland, stayed a few days around Mt. Hood. Hiked and explored the waterfalls, then we made the drive to the Oregon Coast. On our way to the Sea Gem, we stopped at the Willamette Valley to enjoy some of the best Pinot Noirs around. The drive was beautiful. The Sea Gem is so close to the town of Newport. We spent a couple of days relaxing and a couple of days exploring. Each night we sat on the patio or beach and watched the ocean. This house was very comfortable. The pictures are very much true to what it looks like in real life. We stayed as a couple, but there was enough space for a family. We will definitely try and make our way back.

In Newport- make sure you eat at Clearwater (SO YUMMY) and go to the Rogue BREWERY for lunch or dinner. We stopped at the glass blowing place on our way from Newport back to the Sea Gem because the little glass orbs around the house are so adorable, I had to get some for our home in Oklahoma.

My only suggestion is to provide what outdoor activities are close by...hiking trails, etc. There is a book previous guests wrote in and talked about hiking trails near by, but we didn't have any luck finding them. =(

Our trip was a huge success. The locals are so kind and friendly. Thank so much to Winter and Niel for providing such a great rental!

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for my daughters birthday and it was so perfect! The beach access right in front was wonderful, and it felt like we had the whole beach to ourselves. The house was stocked with everything we could've possibly needed and was extremely clean and well decorated. We would live to come back again this fall!
