The Seastar Retreat - Oceanfront Home with Panoramic views!

Bedrooms 1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

We are closed for winter. Reopen March 1, 2018

The Seastar Retreat is seaside living at its best. From the moment you step into the main room overlooking the sea, you enter an expansive world with a view to the horizon. The hummingbirds play hide and seek in the trees while the waves crash against the rocky cove below. The sea breeze blows calmly in the morning while you contemplate your day's adventure. Perhaps you'll take a morning stroll on the beach, or investigate the tide pools for starfish, or carve mussels off the rocks -- a glimmer catches your eye as you watch a whale go by...

Inside the Sea star are all the amenities of home... well, that is if you have an ocean view at home! And you can enjoy the view from the living room, the sun room, the bedroom, the kitchen or the seaside decks. It's easy to spend the day exploring the beaches, flying a kite, seeking out tide pools or just relaxing and enjoying the fresh air and sunshine.

*Note: The Seastar Retreat is the upstairs 'apartment' of a home with a separate entrance.

*Note: NO check ins after 9pm unless prior arrangements.

This was the first time my fiancé and I used VRBO and we could not have asked for a better place to stay. Everything about the Seastar Retreat was beyond amazing ... from the prompt and thorough communications with the property manager Judi, to the wonderful hospitality and warm conversations with the property owner JoDean, to the absolutely stunning views from just about anywhere on this breathtaking property. Thank you for an amazing experience in Brookings. We will definitely come again!

Beautiful 180 degree view of the Oregon coast. Apartment isn't like apartment at all. It's large, open and light, lots of windows and very welcoming. Your first words will be WOW! Comfortable surroundings, all amenities. Gated entrance, so very secure. And except for great ocean sounds...very quiet. Definitely would recommend a stay. Prop manager and owner very responsive and friendly.

Awesome Family Time Before Back to School!

  • 5 of 5

The Seastar Retreat is an amazing and restful place! Both my hubby and 16 year old son complimented me on my choice of accommodations! In the list of "what we loved about this vacation" came in third after the Redwoods at Jedediah Smith and the hike at Silver Falls! Not bad!

Thoughtful touches abound, including the beautiful front gardens with hammock, welcome chalk board on the door, binoculars, mandalas, and a helpful Tsunami Survival Instruction sign on the way down to the beach -- "Run like Hell!" :) Our stay was only two nights, but we easily could have spent a week there relaxing and having a home base for hikes around Samuel Boardman, boat rides on the Rogue River from Gold Beach, etc.

I travel every week for work and am very particular about cleanliness -- the place is immaculate! This was my first time with VRBO, and I was a bit skeptical about a variety of things -- but SO thankful that Judi was understanding and reassuring and I eventually decided to just go for it! My full security deposit was back in my bank account within a week of our return!

Brookings is a bit off the beaten path, which is part of the appeal, but we hope we make it back to town and to the Seastar someday!

Amazing accomodations and view of the ocean within walking distance!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed the moment we opened the door to the apartment with it's spacious & beautifully decorated layout, and then walking across the living area to the deck which overlooks breathtaking views of the ocean, beach, and rocks below. We did not want for any thing and what you have in your home was there, complete kitchen, bathroom completely supplied, beach towels, TV with movie videos, Internet, books, hammock, binoculars, coffee in the cupboard, everything thought of in minute detail, even live plants! We would vacation there again in a minute....even live there! Thank you, J, for being such a gracious hostess!
