About David and Karen Locke
My husband Dave and I had originally purchased a house in the Taft area of Lincoln City. Although it was very close to beach access, it did not have an ocean view. After owning that house for seven years, we decided to sell it with the goal of having a house providing an ocean view.
David and Karen Locke purchased this House in 2013
Why David and Karen Locke chose Roads End
It took us almost a year to find this property. Our criteria seemed simple, but many houses we looked at did not meet the two main requirements: Good ocean view and close beach access. After viewing over 50 homes, this property by far had the best ocean view! Can't get much better than ocean front with floor to ceiling windows! To top it off, we ended up with direct access to the beach. The deck offers good visibility for when the kids want to go down to the sand. They stay back from the tide and usually play in the stream that flows into the ocean, build sand forts or castles, or play with other kids on the beach! Originally the concept of having two units was not our first choice. However we have found that by insulating the walls between the units, the noise transmission is minimal to undetectable. Since our first rental we have had no noise issues.
What makes this House unique
With 2 suites, frequently kids from the two sides will join up to play. We think the location is awesome for watching beach activity. At least two families informed us of having seen whales. With the right conditions, kite surfers with colorful kites frequent this beach; they can fly unbelievably high into the air. You have to see it to believe it. With the large capacity and separate quarters offered by the individual suites, we are seeing an increased number of returning families whom are booking both sides for reunions or annual gatherings. If this is something you are considering see our listing #574624 for rates and availability - book early!

Great location right on the beach. Easy to enjoy a sunset on the beach.
Everything we had hoped for and more!
Wonderful ocean front/unobstructed view. Super clean accommodations with charming seaside decor. All furniture and equipment is in perfect condition. Kitchen was amazingly well equipped. Single floor layout and easily accessible shower was perfect for my elderly mother, who has some limited mobility issues. Since she is unable to walk on the beach, the view and porch were very important and did not disappoint. We came in from Portland on Hwy 101 and it was a joy not to have to drive through the congestion of Lincoln City to get to the property, which is on the north end of town. It was a perfect birthday weekend for mother's 83rd with me and my daughter. The bedroom with queen bed and single bed was perfect for us, and my mother used the other bedroom with private 1/2 bath. I hope to be back for other special occasions or just a getaway from the rat race. Thanks to the owners for keeping the property in such nice condition.
It was perfect except for no wi-fi. That was really a problem for our college age granddaughters.
Very clean. Perfect location. Everything we needed in the kitchen etc., laundry a really nice feature. Some of the towels were sour/wet smelling...need to be replaced. But overall perfect
Happy that you enjoyed your stay. We are not happy about the towel odor you noted. It sounds like housekeeping may have experienced a rush ahead of your visit and didn't fully dry a load? We are sorry for that and have passed the details along to housekeeping, whom otherwise we are quite pleased with. Our internet provider is reliant on older infrastructure and seems to average a yearly or so outage. Thanks you for your time and thoughts in providing a review.
We found Dory Cove clean and ready for us!
We had a great time! We will do this again!
Second year in a row|
This is the second year in a row we have stayed at this property. We love it! We'll be back next year!
Outstanding rental and the hosts are great folk.
Correspondence was great receiving timely replies for our inquiries and instructions for accessing our accommodations. Access to the beach is right there out the back door. The rental was cute, tastefully updated and well stocked with most everything you will need for an extended stay. Our neighbors were very polite and we shared an ice cream cake with them. We've decided to rent both sides of the duplex next time and invite more family. The only down side was we should have stayed longer. I would recommend this rental to family, friends and everyone.
Kite boarding, wind surfing, and surfing very popular! Kite flying. From our location a beautiful beach stretches in both directions. Venture a mile north and spot the colorful sea stars in tide pools. Or less than a mile south check out Chinook Winds casino. TANGER outlet shopping only a 10-15 minute drive into town. Fishing at nearby Devils Lake. Or drive 30 minutes south to discover Depot Bay, with perhaps a stop at Tidal Raves restaurant. Great food with a view - call ahead.
