About the property

Fully Outfitted House, 3 Bedrooms 2 Baths

Want a great view of the off-shore rocks and ocean, with a two minute walk to the beach? You can have it here in this family home. This home has been in the same family since 1923, when it was one of the three original homes in Oceanside. Updated in the early 1970's and subsequently to year-around comfort, it offers all the amenities to make your vacation enjoyable, at affordable prices.

In this quiet little community 'at the end of the road' (no highway through traffic!), there are lots of options for a restful vacation. Oceanside's broad, long beach is great for walking and beach-combing, or playing in the surf, windsurfing,surfboarding, and three fine options for scrumptious sandwiches to full service dining, if you'd rather not cook. Nearby are Cape Lookout State Park, Netarts Bay (great for crabbing) the fishing village of Garibaldi, departure point for deep-sea fishing trips, and the Tillamook Cheese factory.

The house, located in what's know as "the village" section of town, has a garage for one car at street level, and more off-street parking in the driveway. One level up is a large bedroom/sitting room with windows all around and bath. On the top level a large living/dining room with more windows all around looking out at the ocean and off-shore rocks, fully-equipped kitchen, also with ocean views, a sitting area with cozy fireplace, two more bedrooms, and a second bath. A garden deck for more ocean viewing sits just outside, with picnic table and umbrella for dining "al fresco", or chairs for relaxing.

Everything you'll need is there - just pack up your clothes and toothbrush! A port-a-crib and children's table seats are there for little ones who come. If you can draw yourself away from watching the ocean view, there is a library of DVDs and Videos, and cable TV, and a bin full of games for your enjoyment. Toys for the little ones as well. Internet too. Pet friendly. While there are 3 bedrooms, two with queens and one with twins, and there are also two twin airbeds for additional guests who bring their own sleeping bags.

Great place for romantic get-aways or family get-togethers. PRICE BASED ON NUMBER IN PARTY AND LENGTH OF STAY. Scroll down for rate chart below. Preference given to full week reservations June 15-Labor Day, before May 1.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at Gordon's Ocean View Home, and it was lovely as always. Even though we had storms and rain for much of our trip, we were dry and cozy, with wonderful views of the storms rolling in off the ocean. The home has a relaxed feel, and I love the family history in the photos on the walls. While the home is older (one of the first built at Oceanside!), it is really well-maintained with a spacious common room and a well-stocked kitchen. Marilynn is just wonderful to communicate with; the homeowners definitely care about their renters. Highly recommended! We can't wait to return.

Well kept home in beautiful Oceanside.

  • 4 of 5

Very well located ,nice view of waves from upper level. Oceanside is a unique small and intimate community. Home had everything we could possibly need, and clear instructions labeling made it easy for us to navigate the home. I took one star off because of the steps and stairs, but for us it was not a problem. The guest book reflected that guests appreciated the home too.

We cant stop talking about your Oceanside home!

  • 5 of 5

Your comfy, cozy home was perfect for us! Well supplied kitchen, fantastic ocean view and close beach access, seasoned firewood, wonderful mattresses on the beds, and the only "commercial" businesses were a couple of wonderful cafes within a couple blocks of the house! Lots of hiking, birding and fishing/crabbng opportunities nearby....what more could one ask for! We can't wait to return!

Beautiful house rich with family history, stunning ocean views, clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

What a treasure to be right downtown and able to walk just steps to the beach. Loved having the garage to keep my car safe and dry during the stormy weather. Mostly loved cooking meals and enjoying them looking out at the ocean from the main room. It has a large table perfect for books and writing, binoculars for spotting whales and otters. Best of all the house is dog friendly! We'll be back...
