With a spacious outdoor deck, updated chef's kitchen, and charming nautical decor, this contemporary, dog-friendly Oceanside vacation home makes a wonderful home base to explore the Oregon Coast!
The home is tucked away in the hills above the gorgeous beach that runs between Oceanside and Netarts, with the easiest beach access about three miles away in central Oceanside. The immediate area is mostly residential and more peaceful than the coast's busier towns along Highway 101. Head north to visit the beautiful lighthouse at the tip of Cape Meares or for a locally sourced dinner at Roseanna's Cafe in Oceanside. And with some of the coast's best clamming, fishing, and crabbing just to the south in Netarts Bay, you may be tempted to catch your own dinner!
There are living spaces on two floors, allowing plenty of room for everyone to spread out on their own or socialize together. This layout is especially well suited for families - set the kids up with a game or movie downstairs, and let the adults relax and chat in the upstairs living room!
The upper floor has a spacious great room with an open kitchen, dining table, and cozy seating before a gas fireplace. The granite-topped island provides the perfect spot to perch with a glass of wine at happy hour. Guests may also want to head out to the hardwood deck and make use of the gas grill, which attaches directly to the home, eliminating the need for propane bottles, for sunny day barbecues followed by a relaxing evening in the hot tub on the lower deck. With an expanse of open space just past the back deck, you can even do some bird-watching without leaving the comfort of your vacation rental.
The lower level of the home features a laid-back entertainment room with entertainment center (including DirectTV, complimentary Netflix, and a Blu-ray player) as well as a sectional sofa for family movie nights.
The master bedroom, located on the top floor of the home, sports a comfortable California king bed piled with fluffy pillows. On the main level of the home, guests will find a queen bed in one room and a twin bunk bed in the room next door. With two full baths and a washer/dryer, up to six guests can share the space very comfortably. Small dogs (25 pounds or under) are allowed with advance notice, though a nightly fee and a minimum fee per stay will apply.
Though you may be tempted to stay at this charming house and relax, don't miss out on exploring the nearby coast! The beach beckons, and Oceanside's stretch of coastline is especially great for beachcombing and kite-flying. Be sure to take a few sunset photos of the Three Arch Rocks. Sharp-eyed birdwatchers will see plenty of feathered friends in the area, and locals and visitors alike know that nearby Netarts Bay is among the very finest places around for crabbing, clamming, and fishing. (And if you do catch your dinner in Netarts Bay, this home has a fish-cleaning station ready and waiting!)
This lovely home is equally well-suited for extended working vacations or quick weekend getaways with the family. Reserve your stay, and start looking forward to your coastal vacation!
*Please be aware that Oceanside tends to have spotty cell phone service, but the neighboring town of Netarts has decent service just three miles away.*
