Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


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.

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.

Enjoying the Oregon coast with friends!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our time in Oceanside. The location and view are beautiful!

The house is very clean and functional; the beds are comfortable and it is a quiet place to sleep.

we loved our beach walks, doing yoga on the deck and enjoying dinner at Roseanna's down the street.

Catchin up with friends at the Gordon's Oceanside home.

  • 5 of 5

A very nice stay from a busy Highway 101 road trip up from Northern California. This home is very convenient; we had 6 adults for two nights and such a comfortable, nice place, and also very clean. We have been here several times and always look forward to a return trip. Look for the local restaurant, Rosanna's and for those quiet walks on the beach. We had an exceptional sunset every night.

Urine stained mattress, inoperative smoke detectors

  • 1 of 5

Old house, fantastic location. Arrived late - broke my rule of checking mattresses for bed bugs, etc. Discoverd urine stained mattresses when changing bedding :-( All smoke detectors in house were inoperative - lots of daisy chained electrical :-(

I don't mind old properties, but they have to be clean and safe. Photos on file.

Owner's Response: I feel compelled to respond to this reviewer, the only negative review we've ever received in all our years of renting our home. (Renting since 1986!) 1) Re: stain on mattress: After I inquired, this renter sent me three photos of the same stain on one mattress. I believe it was a very old stain, but keeping it covered with a fresh, clean mattress cover that can be washed seems appropriate. I certainly was not trying to hide something that would be harmful to a guest. 2) RE: inoperable smoke alarms: it just happens that my husband and I changed the 9 volt batteries in all the smoke alarms and tested them (there are 5 of them in the house) on May 27, 2017, just prior to this guest's visit. After seeing his comment I asked my housekeeper to return to check them again. They all worked for her. I don't know how he tested them, but perhaps he's used to a different type. 3)RE: unsafe electrical conditions: Our home was thoroughly inspected for all safety issues, electrical and otherwise, by the Tillamook Building inspector prior to our receiving our short term rental license, and it passed with only two requirements - adding a 5th smoke alarm, and adding GFI outlets in the kitchen. We have a full panel of circuit breakers, all clearly labeled, and with easy access in the kitchen cupboard. We clearly post my name and telephone number by the main telephone at the house, and invite guests to call me with any problems or concerns. This guest chose not to do so, nor did he feel so unsafe that he cut short his 4 night stay. We take great pride in our property and work hard to make it clean and comfortable and safe for ourselves, our children and our grandchildren, and for our guests. Clearly the comments of other guests reflect that.

Comfortable and easy...perfect for a get-away

  • 4 of 5

We've returned to this home multiple times now because it's just so...easy. That's saying a lot! The layout, the light, and the well-equipped kitchen is ideal for our family.

Cozy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Spent three lovely days here in a multigenerational group aging from 3 to 71. Plenty of space for everyone. Easy walk to the beach makes it great for families with small children. The common room is spacious, cozy, and comfortable with lots of light and a great view, and the house has the best-equipped kitchen of any property I have ever rented. The house also has a great assortment of games, toys, and a good book selection. The deck was warm and comfortable even when it was windy on the beach. A great beach house!
